MOUNT MACEDON. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 24 November 1848

MOUNT MACEDON. [From our own correspondent.] This neighbourhood remaining in a state of quietude for some time has not given me anything in the way of news of any importance to report to you, being aware that you do not wish to fill your journal with trash or fabrications, as it is the custom of some of your fellow journalists, I have remained silent. I was rather surprised, but why should I, to read in the Herald of a late date, that the Five Mile Creek at Mount Macedon was flooded to such an extent that the mail man was obliged to swim his horses to get over it. I am certain that at the time mentioned, there has not been more water running in the creek at the crossing place, than would have caused a diminutive lap dog to swim. So much for the flooding report of the Drum, there has been no flood to speak of since Sep- tember, and now the creeks may be said to stand still, as there is but little water running in any here, except the Campaspe and Coliban, both of which run a little t...

We regret to have to inform our readers that the separation of Victoria from New South Wales is again deferred for ano- ther year, but it affords us much gratifi- cation to have it in our power to add that the terms upon which the boon is   eventually to be granted are such as will meet with universal approbation.

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 28 November 1848

Domestic Intelligence.   Cheap Management of Stations.—A gentleman signing himself " Innovator," writes a very intelligent letter to the Ob- server, suggesting the necessity of reduc- ing the expences of the settlers, to meet the reduced price of wool. He advocates treating sheep in the same manner as cat- tle are now managed, instead of the old system of shepherding by day, and folding by night. The great obstacle to such a scheme—the wild dog—he disposes of in the following manner, and we confess we should like to see so interesting an expe- riment have a fair trial:—-. " My plan of   bringing strychnin to bear on the growih of wool, and the state of the market and pocket, is as follows: All round the boundaries of the run, let there be points chosen, easily to be recognized, about one or two miles apart ; between these, at regular intervals of time, let a trail be drawn, and poison deposited at each. This can be dragged by a man on horseback, at a canter...

BATTLE OF BOULAGH. (From the Times, August 2.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 28 November 1848

BATTLE OF BOULAGH. (From the Times, August 2.) Contrary to the rule of Irish reports, the battle of Boulagh rather grows in im-   portance. It was a most brilliant and decisive affair. If there is any reason in the Irishman's nature, he ought to be thankful to have such a lesson betimes, and to see his wretched quarrel decided at once, by so fair a passage of arms. By way of improving the occasion, we will point out to him two or three circumstances of a most edifying character, serving to show that the fifty-first Irish rebellion having now failed like all the rest, only more promptly and entirely, this may as well be the last. At least, the fifty- second rebellion, come when it will, is not likely to be much more successful. The Irish reader will not fail to observe that the police enjoy a monopoly in the triumph. The 40,000 soldiers who were to be caught, killed, and eaten, by Mr. Lalor, have not been allowed a finger in the pie. Horse, foot, and artillery, came tumb...

ARREST OF MR. SMITH O'BRIEN. Times Office, Monday, Aug. 7, 5-30, a.m. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 28 November 1848

ARREST OF MR. SMITH O'BRIEN. Times Office, Monday, Aug. 7, 5-30, a.m. Thurles, Saturday night.—This even- ing, at eight o'clock, Mr. Smith O'Brien was arrested in the town of Thurles, just as he was on the point of leaving for Limerick. The arrest was made without the slightest resistance, either on the part of the prisoner or the people, and the in- fatuated rebel chief is now on his way to Dublin. He was recognised in passing through the streets of Thurles by — Hulme, a guard in the employ of the Great Southern and Western Railway Company. Mr. O'Brien asked him the way to the railway station, and Hulme having answered the question, immedi- ately sent a soldier off for reinforcements. He himself followed Mr. O'Brien to the station. On arriving there, Mr. O'Brien asked for a second class ticket to Lime- rick, the price of which he paid. His manner was so embarrassed that the clerk noticed it, and particularly the tremor of his hand. He did not however, recognise his face. Having giv...

The justice and propriety of holding the courts of the Corporation harmless from expense, in the honest discharge of their public duties, seems so very apparent, that it excites on our part, unmitigated astonishment to find even a doubt raised on the subject ; or that there should be found in the community a single indivi- dual who could think it fit or proper that the servants of t...

MELBOURNE MARKETS. Monday, Kov., 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 28 November 1848

  MELBOURNE MARKETS. Monday, Nov ,27.         Grain.—Since our last report a considerable reduction in the price of wheat has taken place.— This was contrary to expectation, for the unpro- pitious state of the weather for some time past having already done some injury to the crops in this district, and being likely to damage them still further, a rise was looked for with confi- dence. The accounts however, lately received from Sydney and Launceston, of the near ap- proach and certain abundance of the harvest in both the Middle District and Van Diemen's Land, have not only counteracted these influences, but brought down the price to 3s. 10d. per bushel, at which rate as fine a lot of wheat as was ever offered in the market, was sold last week. Oats are still very scarce, and selling at 4s. to 4s. 3d. Maize is plentful at 3s. Hay—During the last few days the supply of   new hay received at the market has bee...
