Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 17 November 1848

Domestic Intelligence Our Contemporaries.—We are glad to find that the few mind and gentle remarks, upon which we ventured in Tuesday's publica- tion, have generally been received by the respec- tive parties in the kindly spirit in which they were intended; and we fancy we can already perceive that they were not without their use. Our friend of the Gazette, of whom we endea- voured to speak, in as favourable terms, as our conscience would permit, is the only one who meets our kindness with a rebuff. We fear that our friend is angry. We assure him that if we have been unwittingly betrayed into any expres- sion, which may have hurt his feelings we will endeavour to modify it, if he will call upon us, and point out the offteding pnssage. We at first heard that his indignation was resolving itself into the form of a big stick, and will acknow- ledge to sad misgivings of ill treatment at the hands of the " fighting " member of the Port Phillip press ; but he confines himself to his pen &...

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." FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 1848. BRIBERY AND CORRUPTION. While the late libel action was pending, we deemed it our duty to abstain as much as possible from any allusion to the sub- ject, though occupying much of the public attention ; and we strongly deprecated the adoption of a contrary course on the part of certain of our contemporaries as tending to excite prejudice and prevent a fair trial. But now that every obstacle to free discussion is removed we feel ourselves at liberty to " speak out," though we would willingly spare the plaintiff if the doing so, were compatible with a free discussion of the merits of the case. Though no verdict was arrived at by the jury, the result of the trial is perfectly conclusive with the public, as to the actual existence of a gross and most shameless traffic in both official and judicial favours, indeed we very much ...

SUDDEN DEATH AT BULLA BULLA. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 21 November 1848

SUDDEN DEATH AT BULLA. BULLA. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—The number of sudden deaths which has lately occurred at Bulla Bulla (better known as the Deep Creek) is truly distressing. The little cemetery (if I may so call it) which has been erected by Mr. Wright in front of his own dwelling, has received so many friendless   'strangers in a strange land' to their   last resting place, that it has become   necessary to inter the last two individuals - both within a period of six weeks, and in apparently good health six hours   previous to their deaths - beyond its precincts, the extension of which must now entirely depend upon the generosity of the ' Samaritan,' whose character shone forth so brightly in the restoration of Mr. Hayden's child to his disconsolate   parents. The death which has given rise to the preceding and following remarks, is that of Mr. William Ward, formerly a super- intendent of Judge Donnithorn...

BLOOD HORSES OF THE COLONY. Est in [?]quis patrum Virtus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 21 November 1848

BLOOD HORSES OF THE COLONY. Est in equis patrum Virtus. We turn again to a publication of so use- ful a character, that we strongly recom- mend its support to our readers, for the following paper upon a subject deeply in- teresting to stock holders. We refer lo the New South Wales Sporting Maga- zine. The want of faithfulness, in so many statements professing to give correct pe- digrees of our Colonial horses, must have been observed by those who have directed their attention to this subject. In Cal- cutta, the gross and manifest errors occur- ring in the certificates of shippers of horses, from this country, have been held up to reprobation in the public journals; and, whether these errors proceed from ignorance or deceit, they are alike calcu- lated to attach discredit to those more au- thentic accounts of the lineage of our best horses, which are accurately preserved and faithfully reported. It is therefore desir- able, we think, to collect and to present to the public, in a succ...

Commercial Intelligence. (From the Port Phillip Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 21 November 1848

Commercial Intelligence. (From the Port Phillip Herald.) Dear Sir, Having given you a detailed account of the first of the series of Colonial Wool Sales, in my letter of 31st May, embrac- ing as it did, some of the causes that led to the losses sustained by the importers, I cannot do better than continue that re- port while time permits, adding the infor- mation that has since been imparted to me, from personal observation, on the second series of sales which commenced on the 22nd ult, under the gloomiest prospects and disadvantages that have yet been ex- perienced, with upwards of 30,000 bales to dispose of, and although thay are not ex- pected to terminate until the day after to- morrow, it is easy to predict that the sales will be more calamitous than those of May, which being distributed over a greater number of settlers, and others interested, the consequences will, doubtless, be se- verely felt throughout the length and breadth of the colony. The fact of prices having opened f...

IMPORTANT ENGLISH NEWS.   SUPPRESSION OF THE REBELLION IN IRELAND. The General Hewitt, arrived at Sydney, brings English intelligence to the 10 th August. We are indebted to the S. M. Herald for the following summary of the intelligence :— The grand event of the time is the breaking out and suppression of the Irish rebellion. The standard of revolt was raised by Mr. Smith O'Brien, and the miserable defeat he experienced is chron- icled in our Supplement of to-day.— After all the declamation of the last two years, the insurgents, choosing their own ground, and their own time for the actual revolt, were defeated by a sub-division of police, without the assistance of a single soldier ; their leaders were forced to se- crete themselves, and were gradually being arrested and committed to take their trials for hi...

THE LIBERTY OF THE BAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 21 November 1848

THE LIBERTY OF THE BAR. A strong and general feeling of dissa- tisfaction and disgust has been engen- dered in the community by the shameful and quite unwarranted attack made by Mr. Barry, the counsel for the plaintiff in the late bribery and corruption case, in his reply on the defence, upon Mr. J. P. Bear, of the firm of Bear and Son, auctioneers, a young gentleman of high respectability, who was called upon to give evidence in the case, and was most virulently assailed by the learned coun- sel, first with most misplaced ridicule, and next with the foulest and most un- just imputations. It is fit and proper that counsel, learned in the law, should have full li- berty of speech in protecting their clients' interests, and long would it be, ere we would seek to impose the slightest unne- cessary restriction upon a privilege which we consider a palladium of our rights and liberties, second only in importance to the liberty of the Press. But witnesses have their rights to be protected ...

WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 21 November 1848

WOOL. We present our readers in another column with a letter from Mr. John Porter which is going the round of the Port Phillip journals. It is a somewhat rambling affair, but as the production of a man of intelligence, and a sincere friend to Port Phillip, it deserves some notice at this season, when so much of our thoughts is occupied by the condition, and prospects of our leading staple. We would warn our readers against being too much depressed, by Mr. Por- ter's discouraging remarks upon the prospects of the wool growers. It will be some consolation to them to learn that the very paper, which contains a letter leading to an opinion that the fleeces will soon cease to be worth removing from the backs of our sheep, also contains an announcement from the writer, that he is ready to purchase wool and tallow, the unsaleable trash, of which he augurs so unfavourably. We fear that the losses which have ac- crued upon Mr. Porter's last year's pur- chases, have led to the tinging of his ...

Select Poetry.   DREADFUL EFFECTS! (TO BE ANTICIPATED FROM REPEAL OF THE NA- VIGATION LAWS.) A Song to be sung by all true Protectionists. Now sweep the seas whoever pleases ! No more the foe our flag shall drive, That braved the battle and the breezes ; No more the British Jack's alive !   British oak will lose its toughness, British tars will lose their pluck, British captains lose their gruffness, British owners lose their luck. British goods must needs be scattered, When the world's ships crowd to take 'em ; British profits must be shattered, When new ways are oped to make 'em. British merchants must be poorer With twelve customers for one; British ships find no insurer, When 'gainst foreigners they run. British kerseys won't stand milling, If Spanish ships bring home the wool ; At sixpence freight, and not a shilling, What chance of profit has John Bull ? How can British sugar sweeten, If in Bremen bottoms borne ? How can British beef be eaten, If it's...
