Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 21 November 1848
Domestic Intelligence. Music.—We perceive that the musical public will to-night have a treat, at a very low rate, by the Music Class of the Mechanics' Institute. It is tbe intention of this class to give one of these concerts every two or three months, and their exertions in affording so great an enjoyment to their fellow townsmen, and doing so much to the advance of musical taste amongst us, cannot be spoken of in terms of too high eulogium. The &nbsp; opening of the Geelong theatre causes the removal of several of the profesional performers ; and the committee of the music class has been therefore somewhat hurried in their arrangements, it being essential that the concert should take place before so many of the best players leave Melbourne. In spite of this great disadvantage, and the fact of two concerts taking place in such rapid suc- cession, the very good bill of fare, with which we are presented, and the low rate of entrance, lead us to predict a crowded audience. We ...

THE OBSERVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 24 November 1848
THE OBSERVER. Our friend the Observer, after brood- &nbsp; ing for some ten days over some remarks which we felt called upon to make re- specting him, has at last favored us with a reply ; and we must confess our grati- tude to him, for having shewn us a de- gree of favor, which he rarely bestows upon any person, or subject, he meddles with, and for having actually let us off with something under a couple of columns. Whether it is owing to the unwonted brevity of the article, or the fact of itis referring more immediately to ourselves, we at once confess to having read it all through, and seriously congratulate our friend upon his improvement. We have received some compliments upon the ar- ticle, which seems to sit so heavily upon his mind, but we never felt a glow of such self-gratulation, as when we found that our feeble powers were sufficient for the Sisyphian task, of poking up the Ob- server into positive readability. We are taunted with having treated too largely of " ...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 24 November 1848
Domestic Intelligence. Robbery on the High Seas.— Mr. James Scott, chief officer of the barque Colonist, now in Hobson's Bay, and re- cently arrived from Liverpool, appeared before the police bench on Wednesday last, charged with having stolen a gallon of brandy from the fore hold of the above vessel while at sea on Sunday, the 12th instant. From the evidence of three seamen, it appeared that during Mr. Scott's watch on deck, between 12 and 4 on the Sunday morning, he had sent one of the sailors down the hold with instruc- tions to draw some brandy from a parti- cular cask, which was done by a man named Robert Hall, and passed into the mate's cabin, where it was put into five bottles, four of which were given to the men on watch and one retained by Mr. Scott for his own use. This was the charge, and coupled with the fact of the &nbsp; mate having given the spirits to the men during the most particular of the six watches, had induced Captain Marshall to bring him before the m...
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 24 November 1848
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir—Confident that the late change in the proprietorship of your journal, will not be attended by any diminution of the care hitherto manifested by that paper, for the publlc interest and safety ; I would beg leave to call your attention to the careless construction of many of the country bridges in the district, one of which had nearly been—very lately—the scene of a melancholy occurrence, i.e. &nbsp; the death of a person (who doubtless calls herself a lady, however her conduct may contradict the assertion,) being in a beastly state of intoxication, tumbled headlong over the Deep Creek Bridge, at Bulla Bulla. But it is only as an illus- tration that I would refer to this, (as a person, and especially a female, who thus disgraces herself can hardly be fairly considered as a proper object of sym- pathy.) But now, Mr. Editor, let me ask what is all this owing to? The " de- fenceless state of the bridge, over which no strang...

By His Excellency's Command. E. DEAS THOMSON. &nbsp;
CHINESE IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 24 November 1848

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 24 November 1848
Domestic Intelligence. The Melbourne Morning Herald.— The advertisement threatening the above infliction has been resumed, and we shall therefore become firm believers in the Daily Herald—when we receive the first number. Sooth to say, we look forward with considerable curiosity to the effect produced upon that rather matterless journal, by the still further dilution at- tendant upon a treble issue. We expect our " garrulous and illiterate " friend of the tri-weekly will then shine out quite brilliantly by the contrast. But this much talked of supply of new types, &c., was to have arrived in the Renown ! We have carefully looked over the manifest of that vessel, and finding nothing of the sort, can only infer that the celebrated ' Buggins' is as faithless in his engage- ments, as he certainly is the reverse of euphonous in his patronymic. Concert at the Mechanics' Institute. —A great treat was presented on Tuesday evening, to a very numerous and respec- table audience, by th...
BOURKE WARD. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 24 November 1848
BOURKE WARD. The polling for the election of a Councillor for Bourke Ward, to supply the vacancy occasioned by the election of Councillor Johnston to the Aldermanship of La Trobe Ward, came off on Wednesday at the Crown Hotel, Lonsdale-street, the Worshipful the Mayor presiding as Alderman &nbsp; of the Ward, assisted by assessors Goldie and Sommerville. The candidates were Mr Robert Robinson, saddler, Elizabeth-street, and Mr Dal- mahoy Campbell, commission agent, Lonsdale- street. The former took the lead at starting with a considerable majority, and kept it till 12 o'clock, when the tables turned, Mr Campbell taking the lead, which he kept until the close of the poll at four o'clock, when the votes stood as follows: For Campbell. 75 - Robinson... 56 Majority for Mr Campbell. 19 and Mr Campbell was consequently declared duly elected. The contest was a highly creditable one to both parties, being conducted throughout in the best spirit, and though the majority at tbe close ...
