THE LATE DR. HOBSON. MINUTE OF THE TASMANIAN SOCIETY. March 29, 1848 [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 7 November 1848
THE LATE DR. HOBSON. MINUTE OF THE TASMANIAN SOCIETY. * March 29, 1848 &nbsp; Mr Ronald C. Gunn announced to &nbsp; the Society the lamented death, at the &nbsp; early age of'34, of Edmund Charles Hob- &nbsp; son, M D., which event took place at &nbsp; his villa, near Melbourne, Port Phillip, &nbsp; on the 4th March instant, after an illness of four days. Dr. E. C. Hobson was a native of Tas- mania, studied for some years under Dr. James Scott, R. N., Colonial Surgeon at Hobart Town, from whom he acquired much and varied information, and then visited England to complete his studies, where he obtained the regard and esteem of Professors Owen and Grant, and other eminent men in London. After visiting Paris, and various parts of Germany, he returned to Van Diemen's Land in 1838, where he commenced practice as a general practitioner in Hobart Town. &nbsp; In 1839, Dr. Hobson, in association with two or three gentlemen of congenial ...
ALARMING FIRE. (From the Cornwall Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 7 November 1848
ALARMING FIRE. (From the Cornwall Chronicle.) &nbsp; Last night about eight o'clock the pre- mises of Messrs. Aaron and Saul Solomon, known as the "Red House," in Charles street, and formerly occupied by Messrs Moss and Nathan, were discovered to be on fire, and scarcely had the alarm been given, 'ere the whole of the building was entirely enveloped in flames. All the ad- joining houses speedily caught fire, and by ten o'clock the range of buildings be- tween Mr. Lassiter's Auction Mart and the premises of Mr. Webster, the iron- monger was entirely destroyed. Mr. Higgs the pastrycook, Mr. Sykes the tobacco- nist—the house lately occupied by Mr. Bertram Nathan, and a Baker's on the south of the Red House, together with numerous outbuildings in the rear, were burnt out. The fire is said to have ori- ginated in the carelessness of a lad who was in the Messrs Solomon's shop, and it was with some difficulty that the chil- dren of Mrs. Solomon and Mrs. Higgs were rescued from dest...
A WORD IN SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 7 November 1848
A WORD IN SEASON. " An old man and his little boy were driving an ass &nbsp; &nbsp; to market to sell. 'What a fool is this fellow,' says a man upon the road, 'to be trudging it on foot with his son, that his ass may go light!' The old man hearing &nbsp; &nbsp; this, set his boy upon the ass, and went whistling by his side.' Why, sirrah,' cries a second man to the &nbsp; &nbsp; boy, ' is it fit for you to be riding, while your poor &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; aged father is walking on foot!' The father upon this &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; took down his boy from the ass, and mounted himself. 'Do you see,' says a third, ' how the lazy old knave rides along upon his beast while his poor little boy is &nbsp; almost crippled with walking!' The old man no sooner heard this, than he took up his son behind him. 'Pray, &nbsp; &nbsp; honest friend,' says a fourth, ' is tha...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 7 November 1848
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—The great event of last week has been tIhe Annual Muncipal Elections, and the great topic now universally dis- cussed, is the strange and unexpected issue of one of them. It may not, therefore, be considered that I presume too much by asking you to give a place to this letter in your columns. I am a man who although having a considerable interest in the progress and prosperity of Melbourne, have hitherto avoided any participation in the excite- ment usually attendant upon the elec- tion of Town Councillors. I have in common with a considerable body of my fellow citizens looked upon the contests for municipal honors, as being generally nothing else but strifes between two rival cliques, each contending for the ascendancy. Indeed, I have derived -considerable amusement from seeing the -nonchalance with which the leaders oí &nbsp; both parties have donned the vizard of patriotism before engaging in battle, and witnessing...
ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 7 November 1848
ENGLISH NEWS. We have received English news to the 24th July by the 'Juno,' from South Australia. We had intended to select a few extracts, but are prevented by a press of matter. We observe nothing of great importance, but we are glad to perceive a more cheerful tone prevailing. Trade was improving, money plentiful, conti- nental affairs less unsettled, and every- thing wearing a better aspect, except poor Ireland, which was still one mass of outrage, seditions, and conspiracies. &nbsp;
Select Poetry. PUNCH'S BIRTHDAY ODE TO HIMSELF. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 7 November 1848
Select Poetry. PUNCH'S BIRTHDAY ODE TO HIMSELF. Amid the crash of toppling crowns, The crack of dynasties, And thunder of bombarded towns, Far booming o'er the seas, While Europe with an earthquake-shock Is reeling to and fro, John Bull sits calmly on his rock, Begirt with Ocean's flow, Watching the storm with quiet survey, He being safe ashore ; &nbsp; And whilst abroad all things are topsy-turvy, He sees his Queen upon her throne, His Lords and Commons holding still their own, And some of them, perhaps, a little more. Oh, pride! our Institutions— The old, the wise, the free— &nbsp; In a world of revolutions Still flourishing to see ! To view our own majestic native oak, Whilst other trees of Liberty decay, Still whole and sound from stem to spray, Not in the least inclined to droop ; Indeed, without a joke, This sight should make each Briton cock-a-hoop ! But of our Constitution There's one peculiar boast, Its finest institution— That is to say, almost— &nb...
Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 7 November 1848
Domestic Intelligence. Bribery and Corruption.— The libel action brought by Major St. John against Mr, J. P. Fawkner comes on for trial to-morrow, and from the intense interest it excites will doubt- less command a crowded auditory. It was, we understand, Mr Fawkner's intention to have ad- dressed the jury himself, and retained counsel merely to conduct the examination of the wit- nesses, but he has since foregone the intention, &nbsp; and entrusted his defence entirely to his counsel. We look upon this case as deeply involving the interests of the whole community, and we shall anxiously await the result. Australia Felix Building Society. —We beg to remind our readers that the general meeting for the adoption of rules, and election of office bearers for the above socicey takes place, &nbsp; this evening, at the Mechanics' Institution. The great success which has attended the first insti- tution of the kind in this district, ensures a large attendance, and sufhcient i...
