THE AGRARIAN INSURRECTION. (From the Britannia, Feb. 14.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 3 July 1846
THE AGRARIAN INSURRECTION. (Ft oin the Butanma, Feb. 14.,) The numerous reports of attacks on houses and Tobberies of arms, accom- panied by assaults and attempts to murder, that daily arrive from the southern and western counties of Ireland, are more than sufficient to warrant the ministry in demanding ample powers from the Legislature for the suppression of crime. lu the county of Clure the midnight legislators commit outrage with impunity. We learn that near Quin, in that county, an unfortunate man named Menny, who had taken a farm from which the previous holder had been evicted, was shot dead on Friday week, and the nssasshs re- main unknown. The Dublin correspon- dent of the Times thus concludes an ac- count of a very ordinary class of out- rage : " After beating the immates, accord- ing to the usual practice, one of the party fired at and dangerously wounded a man named Anthony Douellan, a servant at one of the houses subjected to the domi- ciliary visits of these lawless misc...
FASHIONS FOR FEBRUARY. (From the London and Paris Ladies' Magazine of Fashion.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 3 July 1846
FASHIONS FOR FEBRUARY. (From tile London and Paus Ladies' Magazine of Fashion.) Dresses continue to be the made with high bodies ; no others seem admissible. Some are with basquines, and a little jacket behind ; others are with branden bourgs à la ciarme, and have little pattes of velvet ; others are of the waistcoat make, with jackets « la catalane, con- sisting of small square pieces laid one on the other. In lull dress, lace flounces are fashionable, with berthes to match ; j when the corsages are not drapés, a style ] much in favour this season, the sleeves i are still short and much trimmed ; the gloves also continue short, and generally ornamented with lace or ribbon. Brace- lets are very fashionable. Gimp is uni- versally worn even on ball dresses. The colour bouton d'or has been much worn in Paris ; also very pale blue and green, with ornaments in diamonds ; the skirts for dress are made to train a little, unless for dancing ; double and triple skirts are again in favour, an...
Government Notice. The Chief Protector of Aborigines. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 3 July 1846
Government Notice. The Chief Protector of Aborigines. AS no intelligence of the above officer, whe- ther official or otherwise, has been received at this office, since the time of his departure from Melbourne, ostensibly on one of his periodical visits to the tribes within the Port Phillip district, some time about the 24th of March last, the Su- perintendent would feel himself indebted to any resident of the District who would intimate, by a communication addressed to this office, where the above officer may have been recently seen, and what he proposed doing This inquiry is made for considerations wholly unconnected with any fears respecting the Chief Protector's personal safety, of which, wherever he may be, no reasonable doubt whatsoever is entertained. C. J. LA TROBE. Superintendent's Office, 1st July, 1846.
STATE OF TAHITI. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 3 July 1846
STATE OF TAHITI. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.") We have received letters from several correspondents at Tahiti, from which we learn that the state of affairs there is daily becoming more distressing. The natives are in possession of nearly the whole of the island, and the French are confined to a narrow slip of land at Pa piete, and a small island in the bay. Queen Pomare has given her final and decisive answer .. she will never return to Tahiti while the French remain there. British subjpcts are daily exposed to the grossest insults, and there is a decided conviction on their minds, that the pre- sence of Captain Hamond, of H. M. S. Salamanuer, is quite useless to them ; that he acts more like a Frenchman than an Englishman. All the French men-of war in the South Seas had assembled at Papiete, and it was supposed that an im- mediate attack upon the natives was in- tended.

The General Meeting of the Members of the Geelong Immigration Society was held on Mon- day last, pursuant to advertisement, when a large &nbsp; attendance of members took place The announcement of the formation of a Com- mittee at Port Fairy, who were anxious to co- operate with the Geelong Society, was one of the most satisfactory features of the meeting At the hiour appointed, Mr George Russell, the President 0f the Society, took the chair, and stated that the object for which the present meet- ing was called, was to take into consideration the &nbsp; expediency of doubling the amount of the sub- scription payable for the present year, so as to enable the Society to mtroduce a sufficient num- ber of immigrants to meet not only the present but also the anticipated demand for labour at the approaching shearing seuson, and after having read the advertisement convening the meeting, briefly stated the a...

PROCLAMATION. By his Excellency Sir George Gipps, Knight, Captain General and Governor-in-Chief of the Territory of New South Wales and its Dependencies, and Vice-Admiral of the same, &c. &c. HE REAS by a certain Act of the Impe- rial Parliament of Great Britain and Ire- land, passed in the fifth and sixth years of the reign of her most gracious Majesty Queen Victo- ria, intituled, " An Act for the government of New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land," it was amongst other things enacted that it should be lawful for the Governor of New South Wales to prorogue the Legislative Council thereof from time to time, and dissolve the same, by proclama- tion or otherwise, whenever he should deem it expedient; and whereas it is expedient to pro rogue the said Legislative Council for the period hereinafter mentioned : Now, ï, Sir George Gipps, Knight, the Governor aforesaid, do here- by, in pursuance of the power and authority so in me vested, prorogue the said Legislative Counc...
EVENING. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 3 July 1846
EVENING. 'Tis evening, and the sombre shades O'er hills and valleys spread ; And warblers of the woods and glades, Have to their covert fled. Alone, in musing mood, I gaze On heaven, earth, the sea ; O'er which the sunset's golden rays, Have shed their brilliancy. Ah me! how beautifully bright, In richest purple drest, Glow yonder clouds of crimson-white, Far in the blushing west. Time and distance shadows throw, O'er many a scene like this ; And I have felt, though not as now, An hour of purer bliss. The morn of life-the memory Of earlier hopes and fears, As in a dream I faintly see, Through the dark dim mist of years. &nbsp; And fancy, still a form portrays, Who wander'd by my side ; And oft with me, in happier days, Has met at eventide. Enough, enough-no more to me, Through scented mead to stray, Or with her by the trysting tree Commune till parting day. Yet, oh ! through all life's after years, The light of early days Illumes the winding vale of tears, &nbsp; Lik...

Racing -We find in a Sydney sport- ing journal entitled Belt's Life in Sydney, the following remarks on the subject of the running of " Petrel" at the Homebush Races, from the pen of " A Port Philhppian " The writer boys " Now that the ' chaff and ' laugh' of the Syd- ney newspapers and people have duly gone their rounds, about the Port Phillip horse Petrel, it would not be out of place to enlighten the would be knowing sportsmen of the Middle District as to how the horse was easily beaten. Like all other great events when ended, the pseudo turfites suddenly cut their eye teeth, and loudly exclaimed that each individual knew that Petrel would not stand a shadow of a chance with any of the Sydney boises-from the ' counter jumper'...
To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 7 July 1846
To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Sin-That relic of a barbarous and feudal age -duelling-has within the last few years had the pall put upon its existeucc among military and naval men, and the best class of civilians. All the Sovereigns in Lurope having by their own express will and power, or by legislative enact-1 ment, provided stringent measures against duel- ling, it is no longer the custom of men of real honor ; and the only persons who now resort to it for the adjustment of quarrels, are (generally) men in a great measure destitute of the tear of the lan s of God, or respect for those of man. How lamentable is it, therefore, to record that in this Colony of Port Phillip not only men of rank and station, but individuals swoin to pre- serve the public peace, have in two or three in- stances, within n few days past, been found re- sorting to this (now) disgraceful and illegal mode of obtaining satisfaction for real or presumed in- juries, when by reference to competent gentle...
