Colonial Secretary's Office, Sydney, 5th May, 1846. Rewards for the Discovery of Illicit Distillation. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 7 July 1846

LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. THE CORN LAW QUESTION. (From the Times, March 3.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 7 July 1846
LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. THE CORN LAW tlUESTION. (Fiom the Times, Match 3. ) THE question of the corn laws may, we are of opinion, be considered as set at rest. In spite of resignations, ejections, and protection meetings, the Minister has had a majority of 9/-a majority greater than that which supported him on several occasions, ere he had startled the intelligence, roused the fears, or of- fended the consciences of his Conserva- tive adherents.- Another question may also be considered as dismissed, or, at any rate, diminished in importance that is, " What will the Lords do ?" "With a majority of only 70, the Premier might have looked forward to the tactics of the upper house with anxiety-had it been only 60, with alarm. Ile may now, as far na the safety of his measure is concerned, regard them with indifference. The House of Commons dare not rescind a vote which it has thus confirmed by nn after recantation ; the House of Peers will be wise enough to avoid a collision with the represe...
To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Melbourne, 6th July, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 7 July 1846
To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. &nbsp; Melbourne, 6th July, 1846. Sir - The establishment of the Native Police having heen the subject of general remark in the late publications in the Port Phillip Herald, I will trouble you with a few thoughts which have occurred to me. Of late, the Native Police Force do not seem to have been of any great use, and this is said to be caused by the difficulty of keeping the natives to their duty. Surely there must be a grievous fault either in Captain Dana's management, or there must be some strong dis- like on the part of the natives to him personally. Those who were in the Colony in the years 1836 and 1837, when the force was first established under Captain Lonsdale and Mr. De Villiers, will recollect that at that time no difficulty was found in keeping on foot an efficient force, and it is only necessary to call to mind the capture of the natives of the Mount Macedon and Geelong tribes who had attacked the stations of Messrs. Arthur...

I,T having appeared, on different occasions, that the rule is not perfectly understood under which the Mounted Police are required to act in connection with the Civil Police, his Excellency the Governor diiocts it to be notified for the information and guidance of the Magis- trates and the Officers of the Mounted Police, that, although the Mounted Police nre subject to Military discipline, they form a part of the Civil PoUce of the Colony; and that all Mounted Policemen, when not' under the immediate command of one of their Commissioned Officers, are bound to obey the orders of a Civil Ma- gis...
THE TOWN COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 10 July 1846
THE TOWN COUNCIL. THE Town Council of Melbourne has, in I the fulness of its wisdom, come to the determination that.it would be wrong to give the power of adjourning the poll in case of riot at Municipal Elections, and it would be an unwarrantable in- terference with the liberty of the sub- ject if the breaking of a man's head, for voting in accordance with the dic- tates of his conscience, were made a punishable offence. Both decisions would do credit to a deliberative as- sembly of " Tipperary boys," such as ruled the roast at the late Melbourne races, but they certainly speak little for the collective wisJom of the Melbourne citizens. The adjournment of the poll, in case of riot, is already part and parcel of the law of the land as regards elections to the Legislative Council-and that it should be so as regards municipal elec- tions, we should lave thought would not have admitted of a doubt by any body aware of the fact (hat at a contested elec- tion in Melbourne, not long since,...
