IRELAND. THE ANTICIPATED OUTBREAK. (From the Times Reporter) Kilkenny, 3 P.M., July 28. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 11 November 1848
IRELAND. THE ANTICIPATED OUTBREAK. (From the Times Reporter ) Kilkenny, 3 p.m., July 28. I have just received private informa- tion, which I fully believe to be authen- tic, and which places beyond a doubt, if it is so, that the rebellion so long threat- ened, and which has created such in- tense alarm, has at last broken out. I copy extracts from my correspondent's letter, which are very characteristic of the country in which he lives, and, sad to say, the times also. It commences thus : " Callan, Thursday, noon. " Judge for yourself,—who went to Killaloe to see his family, has just re- turned. — told him that she had received a letter from her sister in Bal- lingany, written at 9 o'clock this morn- ing ; that thousands were there assem- bled, with fifes and drums; and last, not least, arms of all descriptions ; that Smith O'Brien was with them (I find no men- tion of Meagher, or Dillon—have they 'levanted?') that O'Brien intended changing his course from that to Urling- ford. She ...
BRIBERY AND CORRUPTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 14 November 1848
BRIBERY AND CORRUPTION. We have still a few words to offer on the case which has lately figured so often be- fore the public, under the above heading. It is a case of too great importance, and has excited too much interest in the public mind, to be passed over slightingly.—The revelations it has led to, throw too bright a light upon the past, and are too pregnant with serious warning for the fiuture, to require only the brief and cursory notice which we have hitherto bestowed upon them ; we shall, therefore, return to the subject in our next.
Select Poetry. TO THE PROTESTANTS OF IRELAND [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 14 November 1848
Select Poetry. &nbsp; &nbsp; TO THE PROTESTANTS OF IRELAND. When treason threatens Church and State, And traitors false upbraid, And bigots blind, with plume elate, Their deadly slander aid, Shall churchmen slumber at their post, In shameful apathy ? Shall freemen fear a clamorous host, Or cringe to tyranny ? &nbsp; No—let their potent voice be raised Throughout this slumbering land, &nbsp; 'Twill wake the pride of former days— 'Twill rouse a mighty band— 'Twill summon in resistless power The fearless and the brave; Oppose to threatening storms that lower The spirit of the age. 'Twill teach those traitors false who dare To quench our altar's light, That truth's bright beacon blazeth there, No earthly power shall blight. We need not wield the warrior's sword, To win us victory, Where reigns the spirit of the Lord, There reigneth liberty. Up, freemen, up ! the stars that shone Some centuries ago, Unclouded still shall guide us on To glory here below. Up...
FIRE AND MARINE INSURANCE COMPANY. To the Inhabitants of Geelong, Portland, Port Fairy, and their vicinities. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 14 November 1848
FIRE AND MARINE INSURANCE COMPANY. To the Inhabitants of Geelong, Portland, Port Fairy, and their vicinities. Allow me through the medium of the Argus newspaper to address you on a subject of great importance to us all, from the largest merchant to the hum- blest shopkeeper, agriculturalists, and all. On a superficial view it may appear to many that you are above the reach of any injury arising from the absence or want of a local Fire Insurance Company, but I think that very little argument will convince you to the contrary, and further that many of you, who thin yourselves the most secure, and least in want of it, are really and truly, in the greatest need. I grant that you who have large premises and property, and have large connections, may find but comparative difficulty in getting your premises and goods insured, and therefore do not care very much whether you insure in a foreign or a local office, although this ought not so to be ; but to a great part of the inhabitants of our...
TO THE COLONISTS OF AUSTRALIA FELIX. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 14 November 1848
TO THE COLONISTS OF AUSTRA- LIA FELIX. Cease squabbling about election and non-election, ye denizens of this Heaven favoured country, and boldly take a higher stand—firmly demand your rights and if denied them, following the patriotic ex- ample of America throw down the gaunt- let at once to your robbers and oppressors. True ! we are few in numbers compared with the Americans at the time they achieved their independence ; but the distance of the two countries from Eng- land makes the difference of five to one in our favour (i. e.) in the transit of troops, &c.—bear this in mind and fear not the results. England might lay some claim to the American Colonies, on the score of ex- penses borne by her in founding and supporting them, but what support or protection I would ask, has this country ever derived from the parent state ? None ! Her onward progress has been re- tarded, and her inhabitants brought to the brink of ruin through the spoliation and robbery they have suffered t...

TO THE REV. JAMES FORBES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 14 November 1848
TO THE REV. JAMES FORBES. Sir,—In fulfilment of my promise to you in my former letter, I now bring un- der your consideration the terms and provisions of the covenant of circumci- sion, established with the Patriarch Abra- ham, and recorded in the seventeenth chapter of the book of Genesis, "And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the lord appeared to Abram and said unto him, I am the Al- mighty God, walk before me and be thou perfect. And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly. And Abram fell on his face ; and God talked with him say- ing as for me behold my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. Neither shall thy name any more be called Abram, but thy name shall be Abraham, for a father of many nations have I made thee. And I will make thee exceeding fruitful, and I will make nations of thee, and Kings shall come out of thee. And I will establish my covenant between me and thee, and thy seed after thee, and...

WOOL SALES. We have to thank a mercantile friend for the following information regarding our leading staple, and we hear that to the 29th July, no material change had taken place :— London, July 19th, 1848.

The Argus I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak impugn it whoso list." TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 1848. OUR CONTEMPORARIES. In the announcement of a change in the conducting of this journal, we have not considered it necessary to enter at any considerable length into the course which we intend to adopt upon the public ques- tions of the day ; but it may be expected of us, that we should take such an oppor- tunity of reviewing our position as re- gards our contemporaries, of stating the course which we intend to pursue to- wards them, and of calling the attention of our readers to the present condition of the Melbourne press. We enter upon this review in all good faith ; with an anxious desire to preserve a moderate tone, and arrive at a just conclusion ; and with a sincere wish that our remarks may lead public attention to the consideration of a most important subject, and ultimately may conduce to the general advantage.

JORROCKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 14 November 1848
JORROCKS. &nbsp; We have extracted from the first num- ber of the "New South Wales Sporting Magazine", the following notice of this celebrated horse. The news of his death lately received from Sydney, will add some interest to this brief sketch, of one of the noblest animals that ever ran. As in duty bound, our first Number is embellished with a portrait, by our talented artist, Mr Edward Winstanley, of " Old Jorrocks"—the most noble &nbsp; Turf Horse the Colony has ever pro- duced—the pet of the public and our own. We have taken very considerable trouble to trace his performances from his first appearance on the turf, in 1841, up to the present date, searching care- fully through the pages of the Herald, Gazette, Monitor, &c.; and by the &nbsp; kindness of the Honorary Secretaries of the Homebush and Parramatta Clubs, &nbsp; have received every information their books could supply. We have also ap- plied to many of his late owners, all of w...
