Government Notice. The Chief Protector of Aborigines. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 14 July 1846

Government Notice. The Chief Protector of Aborigines. AS no intelligence of the above officer, whe- ther official or otherwise, has been received at this office since the time of his departure from Melbourne, ostensibly on one of his periodical visit to the tribes within the Port Phillip district, some time about the 24th of March last, the Su- perintendent would feel himself indebted to any resident of the District who would intimate, by a communication addressed to this office, where the above officer may have been recently seen, and what he proposed doing. This inquiry is made for considerations wholly unconnected with any fears respecting the Chief Protector's personal safety, of which, wherever he may be, no reasonable doubt whatsoever is entertained. C. J. LA TROBE. Superintendent's Office, 1st July, 1846.

THE LAST OF THE BUCHANITES. (From the Spectator.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 14 July 1846

THE LAST OF THE BUCHAN1TES. (From the Spectator.) The Dumfries Courier announces the death of the last of the " Buchanites." This was a sect fouuded in the eighteenth century, by a female of the name of Buchan, who believed herself to be in- spired, as many other enthusiasts have done. On her deathbed in 1796, Mrs. Buchan assured her followers that she was only called to Paradise for a time on special business ; that she would return and reauimate her body in nine days ; if not in nine years ; at all events, after the lapse of half a century. The sect, never numerous, has gradually been thinned by death : about a week ago, the last of them-an old man of some small property, in whose house Mrs. Buchan expired-died at the age of eighty-two. After his decease, the remains of the prophetess-a skin-clad skeleton with luxuriant hair-were found in an upper chamber, in a bed, wrapped up in blankets. Here was a strong undying faith. For the space of fifty years-while the rest of the world wa...

THE FAMINE IN IRELAND. (From the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 14 July 1846

THE FAMINE IN IRELAND. (From the Times.) We give elsewhere a document laid on the table of the House of Commons last night, which it is impossible to read with- out the most painful interest. It contains apparently all the suggestions of a re- medial character which the Commis- sioners of Inquiry into matters connected I .with the failure of the potato crop in Tie- ' land can venture to offer. But anything more hopeless and fearful than the pros- pect they reveal cannot well be imagined. There appears no longer a doubt that an almost universal famine is about to visit I that devoted island. Such is the dire reality which has been looming upon us through the midst of Irish rumour and English incredulity these four or five months, and which is now too distinct | and too palpable to be any longer denied, But the worst featuie of the case is the I almost utter absence of resource. A dreadful visitation of nature is aggra- vated by the imperfect character of our social institutions. It i...

THE EFFECT OF THE ABOLITION OF THE CORN LAWS UPON THE PRICE OF WHEAT. (From Bell's Messenger, Feb. 23.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 14 July 1846

the effect of the abolition op the corn laws upon the paige of wheat. {From Bell's Messenger, Feb. 23.) In our paper of the 2Gth ultimo we inserted a letter irom an English mer- chant, who has been residing at Ham- burgh for the last thirty years, and who has been extensively concerned in the corn trade. In that letter the writer warns the Legislature of England against the consequences of repealing her corn laws, and asserts that " in one year af- ter the opening of the English ports « e will furnish you with as much wheat as you require at from 25s. to 30s. a quar- ter, laid down in England, and as soon as we bring our waste lands into culti- vation at much less." Now, let our readers mark the follow- ing statement, made in the House ot Commons on Tuesday, by Mr. Hudson, in ene of those matter-of-fact speeches which are so unpalatable to the free-trade dreamers aud sophists of the present day : " He had taken some pains to ascer- tain what would be the probable price of wheat unde...

THE DOINGS OF YESTERDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 14 July 1846

THE DOINGS.OP YESTERDAY. Elsewhere our leaders will find some account of the Popish riots yesterday afternoon, and of their results, so far as We have been able to ascertain them up to the time of our going to press. We' make no comment on these pro 1 ceedings in só far as the parties engaged in the skirmish are concerned, for we take it for granted that the fact of things hav- ing arrived at such a pass in Melbourne 'that a-large and respeetable body of the inhabitants, whatever their opinions, can- not meet and dine quietly and peaceably together, without being exposed to such outrages from the Popish rabble, will, we think, speak sufficiently for itself. We cannot so, however, speak of the conduct of the Melbourne Magistracy which was on this occasion, if possible, more marked with the despicable spirit of truckling which distinguished their conduct at the late Races, than even on that occasion. Instead of extending to the Orangemen that protection, which, as loyal and peaceable ...

Domestic Intelligence. POPISH RIOTS.—SERIOUS AFFRAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 14 July 1846

Bomcsttc ïntclUflcncc, POPISH RIOTS.-SERIOUS AFFRAY'. YESTxnnAf afternoon the usual quiet of the town was rudely disturbed by a furiousonslaught made upon a very small number of Orangemen, who were quietly and peaceably engaged in making the necessary arrangements for their anniversary banquet at the Pastoral Hotel, by an armed rubble of the lowest description of the Irish napists, which resulted in a skirmish of about half-an-hour's duration, in which several of the assailing party received rather a rough bundling, two of their number being severely wounded, and several others slightly. Eventually the military were called out, the Riot Act read, and the mob dispersed. It seems, from what we can learn, that about half-past three o'clock in the afternoon, several bunds of ruffian looking fellows, some armed with muskets and fowling pieces, and others with blud- geons of all sorts and descriptions, were seen gathering from different quarters in the direction of the Pastoral Hotel, whe...

I now proceed to adopt a similar course with re- ference to that of Joseph Phelps Robinson, Esq., member for Melbourne, who was examined on the 23rd December, 1845 Ho considered that the necessity for Separation was greater than when the petition was sent home on the subject tweh e months before, and he did not think jus- tice could be done to the question unless a com- mission were appointed to take evidence on the spot Hie district of Port Phillip was increasing largely in population and exports, and the feeling in favor of Separation was almost unanimous He then handed to the council a mémorandum on the subject from Mi Westgarth, of Mel- bourne, and which shewed the two principal grounds for the claim of t...

THE PROTESTANT WARNING. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 17 July 1846

THE PROTESTANT WARNING. Ye Orangemen of Melbourne, who fondly dream'd the laws Were strong enough at least to clip the Papist rubble's claws, No longer on the broken reed of Government rely, But " put your trust in God, my Boys, and keep ^ your powder dry !" 'Sharp ground be every sabre which hangs against your wall, Well furnish'd every loyal house, with powder and with ball i Por of these Ribbon braggarts, naught so soon the courage chills, As a dose of good steel lozenges, when follow'd by lead pills. Alas! for England's honor, when our Rulers ¡)rove so weak, As to be to Rebel smiters, compell'd to turu the cheek ; But they've truckled to them long enough, and now must surely know, The laws' arm is not strong enough-'tis we must strike the blow. We'll do it, though we will not ask their help or their advice. In " Ninety-Eight" our fathers' task required no striking twice Whose swords upheld the British Throne, and taught the Rebel South Submission's bloody lesson from out the can...
