Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 28 November 1848
Domestic Intelligence. Insurance Company.—Our readers will be glad to learn that this useful Company may now be considered to be fairly started. The number of shares actually applied for, approaches the two thousand requisite to constitute the Com- pany, and there is a reserved list of known sup- porters, which will bring the number far above what is requisite for the appointment of a Committee, &c. Our next announcement will, no doubt, be to the effect that the whole 4000 shares have been allotted, and we know enough of the shillyshally spirit that is so prevalent in this dis- trict, to feel sure that many people who are now en- deavouring to make up their minds, will then profess all sorts of astonishment, at finding themselves too late. Such people we would refer to the ex- tract in our last, to the effect of the Cornwall Insurance Company having just held their an- nual meeting, and declared a dividend of 25 per cent, besides a large increase being, in all proba- bility,...

GOVERNMENT NOTICE. &nbsp; NAVIGATION OF PORT ALBERT. Harbour Master's Office. &nbsp; &nbsp; William's Town, November 14th, 1848. WITH special reference to Captain Stoke's directions, given in a, note page 427, vol. 2, of his " Discoveries in Australia," it is considered expedient that the following observations, made by C. J. Tyers, Esq., Commissioner ofi Crown Lands at Gipps Land, should be published for the information of Mariners. The channel into Port Albert is available only for boats of about (15) fifteen tons and under. In March 1846, while passing through. it in the "Lucy" of about (17) seventeen &nbsp; tons, I grounded several times ; and about half-way between Corner Inlet and. Port Albert, found that a shoal had been formed across the channel, apparently by the meeting of the flood- tide from Corner Inlet with that from Port Albert. The only approach to the shipping place at Port Albert for vessels of any burthen (not above 200 tons) is by ...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—I have the honor to acknowledge the &nbsp; receipt of your letter of November 24th,* (deli- vered to me November 27th,) by which you apprise me that you have become the proprietor of the Argus newspaper, and in which you solicit my support. As I lately read an article in the Argus, in which a recommendation was given to cause me to be cudgelled, for the mode in which I dis- charged my professional duty , I feel, I must confess, a certain degree of solicitude to leam the principles, which will enable the author of such a paragraph, to conduct a newspaper " with energy and honesty, with independence and respect- ability." &nbsp; I will, therefore, subscribe to the Argus for one quarter, to commence on December the first; (the subscription to be paid in advance,) in order that I may be enabled to judge, whether the Argus have any "claim upon that public countenance which has seldom been withheld, if really de- se...

INSOLVENT COURT. Wednesday, November 29, 1848. (Before R. W. Pohlman, Esq., Chief Com- missioner.) In the Estate of Frederick Hornblower.—This was a second adjourned general meeting of cre- ditors for proof of debts and other business con- nected with the Estate. Mr Graham, the official assignee, for whose attendance the former meet- ing had been adjourned, was present. The prin- cipal business, before the meeting was the question whether Mr Scott, who had put in a claim for £11, was a partner of the insolvent. Mr Paynter appeared for Hornblower, and Messrs Stawell and Bowler for Scott. After a long examination of Mr Scott, the Commissioner stated that he could not admit the claim, as it was evident a partnership did exist, he would, however, allow Mr Scott to amend his proof, to do which an ad- journment must take place. The meeting was then adjourned till Monday next. Thursday, November 30. In the Estate of Napoleon de la Ray.—This was a first general meeting, for proof of debts a...

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, DECEMBER 1, 1848. THE SETTLED DISTRICTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 December 1848
The Argus. &nbsp; &nbsp; I am in the place where I am demanded ofnscience &nbsp; to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak impugn it whoso list." FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1848. THE SETTLED DISTRICTS. Our friends the Squatters within the settled Districts, are in a state of consi- derable anxiety respecting the Govern- ment Notice, published in our last. That notice, drawn up with the usual amount of official ambiguity, authorises the ap- plication for any portion of land, not less than 30 acres in each section, to be put up for sale, by the present licensed occu- pier. To understand the object of this notice, or to read intelligibly the Regu- lations themselves, to which this notice refers, we must ever bear carefully in mind, that they emanate from the Go- vernment in Sydney, are suggested by Sydney people, adapted to Sydney wants, and have about as much reference to our position here, as they have to the land tenure in the moon. The main object of this...
BRIBERY AND CORRUPTION. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 December 1848
BRIBERY AND CORRUPTION. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir—In the Daily News of Wednesday &nbsp; last, appeared an article, in the disguise &nbsp; of an editorial leader, which from its very nature, was calculated to lower in public estimation the character of certain &nbsp; members of the City Corporation. After reading this article, I wrote some obser- &nbsp; vations, which I intended to send in, in time for publication in Friday's Argus. &nbsp; &nbsp; Upon reflection, however, I expected that &nbsp; the subject would be taken up by an &nbsp; abler hand. But having waited till this date, and seeing no notice taken of it, I have resolved to give in the substance of &nbsp; these obseivations, which I hope you will &nbsp; publish in your influential and widely circulated journal. &nbsp; The writer of this article is apparently one of those unhappy persons whose peace &nbsp; of mind is always ...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 December 1848
Original Correspondence. &nbsp; to the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—As an uneducated countryman, allow me to put some Queries to you, anent the Prospectus of the " Australia Felix Benefit Investment and Building Society." I. What is the meaning of the term " Redemption Money?" I take it to be &nbsp; a new name for interest, payable by the borrowers, on the sum of £50 to be ad- vanced by the Society, per share—if so, why the specified sum of £2 8s. ? II. How comes it, that, whilst the monthly payment is stated at 10s., and the Redemption money at 48s. per annum, or 4s. per month. " The amount actually paid by the member in Monthly Instal- ments" is stated at about 17s ? I conceive that this Monthly payment cannot exceed 14s., consequently that here must be an overcharge of 3s. per month—equal to £1 16s. per annum, and in 8 years amounting to £14 8s., or equal to 30 per cent, on the total subscription per share. Your explanation of the above will much oblige Sir, Your mos...
THE NEW CONSTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 December 1848
THE NEW CONSTITUTION. The constitution, which Earl Grey's late despatch purposes to confer upon the future Colony of Victoria, is all that the most ardent friend of the province could have hoped for or desired, for though there may probably be some faults in the details of the measure, the power with which the Legislature is to be in- vested, of providing not only for the cor- rection of mistakes, but even for a par- tial or entire change of the constitution, will render them of but little moment. It surely then is not becoming, that intelligence of such vital importance should be received, and passed over as a mere every day occurrence. There surely ought to be some public demon- stration—some intimation to Earl Grey, that though the delay in the Separation of this Province from Sydney is bitterly felt, the importance of the magnificent boon he proposes conferring upon the colony, is duly appreciated and grate- fully acknowledged. Let a public meet- ing for this purpose be convened...
