COUNTRY NEWS. FROM OUR MOUNT MACEDON CORRSESPONDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 1 December 1848
COUNTRY NEWS. FROM OUR MOUNT MACEDON CORRES - PONDENT.] There has been another painful in- stance of the manner in which we may be removed by death from this world, shown us by an accident to a Mr. Bar- bauld, a young gentlemen who was in the H. E. I. C. Service, and came to this country more for the purpose of improving his health than his fortune, as his constitution was very much worn down through his residence in the Indies. Mr. Barbauld was residing at the station of Messrs. Caye and Kay, Avoca, when the accident occurred ; it appears he wanted to buy a saddle horse, for which purpose he went to the station of Mr. Henry Foley, not far distant, where a man of Mr. Foley's had a mare for sale, which the man agreed to let him have a trial of, before he purchased. He re- mained the night of the day upon which he came to Mr. Foley's, with Mr. Foley and his family, and started on the mor- row homewards on the mare, and on his way called at the station of Mr. A. Cameron, where he stopp...

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." TUESDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1848. ENGLISH NEWS. By the Waterloo we have the London journals to the 31st August, but the news is of very little interest. The Queen was to embark at Wool- wich for Scotland on the 2nd September, to take up her abode at Balmoral Castle, the future Scottish residence of Royalty. The Session of Parliament was on the eve of closing, and on the rising of the house, the Premier Lord John Russell, contemplated proceeding to Ireland, on a visit to the Earl of Clarendon, the Lord Lieutenant. The Irish Rebellion seemed to be fairly at an end, and Lord Hardinge was on the eve of returning to England, his mission being accomplished. The abso- lutely ridiculous failure of an attempt heralded by so much of bluster, seems to have had a most unfavourable effect, upon those who were before disposed to sym- pathise with the Irish rebels.

Domestic Intelligence. &nbsp; Ourselves.—If our friend of the Ob- &nbsp; &nbsp; server will aliow us, once more, to heai &nbsp; an article in this way, we would venture &nbsp; to refer to the increase of our space in to-day's publication. We beg that our readers will accept it, as earnest of our &nbsp; determination to be left behind by no &nbsp; paper in Melbourne in either quantity or &nbsp; quality of matter, and not long in fre- &nbsp; quency of issue. We trust that we shall &nbsp; find a fair portion of that space, occupied in the most profitable manner, and that our subscription list will continue to swell as rapidly as at present. The New Counties.—We learn from the eighth annual report of the Land and Emi- gration Commissioners, that his Excellency the Governor has reported to the Secretary of State that he anticipates being able before the close of the present year to proclaim thirteen new Coun-...
THE SETTLED DISTRICTS[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 5 December 1848
THE SETTLED DISTRICTS. The Notice to which we adverted in our last still continues to excite considerable interest amongst the parties likely to be influenced by its operation ; and we per- ceive that a meeting of the Squatters within the Settled Districts is called for, next Thursday, to consult as to what is to be done. As it is particularly import- ant that correct views should be arrived at, upon the subject ; as the Government Notices, both of the 29th March and 21st November, are open to great doubt and uncertainty ; and, as such of our con- temporaries as have ventured to meddle with the matter, have, as usual—when they grapple with a difficult subject— made the tangled web of Government ambiguity, ten times more intricate than they found it, we return to the considera- tion of the probable effects of this new Notice. We never met with a more amusing instance of a man being out of his depth, than is exhibited by the article upon this subject, which appeared in the Daily News,...
Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 5 December 1848
Domestic Intelligence. Summary Ejectment.—On Thursday last the police court was occupied for some time in hearing and deliberating upon the application of Mr. Peter Davis for a warrant under Brewster's Act, (which had been applied for twice unsuc- cessful) tocompel Mr. Timothy Horrigan, to give up possession of premises occupied by him off Collins-street, in the rear of the old Lamb Inn. Mr. Davis informed the bench that he was acting as agent for Mr. B. Hart, of Sydney, and that in such capacity he had given the necessary no- tice to quit in seven days, together with a notification of his intention to make the present application. Mr. John Stephen, on behalf of Horrigan, said he would admit the correctness of the proceeding so far as the serving of notice, &c., but took an objection to the time of the notice to quit, which he contended should have been six months instead of seven days ; his client entered into possession on the 18th of November, 1844, and the fact of his be...
BRIBERY AND CORRUPTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 5 December 1848
BRIBERY AND CORRUPTION. We mentioned in a late number that the defendant in the late libel action, St. John v. Fawkner, contemplated applying to the local government for payment of the costs incurred in defending the ac- tion. We are now in possession of the answer of his Honor the Superintendent —to the application, which is as follows : Superintendent's Office, Melbourne, November 28, 1848. Sir,—I have to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of this day's date, preferring a claim to the liquidation of the expenses incurred by you &nbsp; as Defendant in the action recently brought against you by Major F. B. St. John for alleged libel. You rest your claim on the ground that in con- sequence, and in faith of the public intimation given by me in tbe Port Phillip Government Gazette of the 12th July last, of the readiness of Government to investigate any open charge of misconduct which might be brought against a Government officer, you had furnished the name of Major F. B. St....

EARTHQUAKE IN NEW ZEALAND. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 5 December 1848
EARTHQUAKE IN NEW ZEALAND. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) Our readers will learn with deep regret, that our fellow-colonists at Port Nichol- son have suffered great loss of property from an earthquake, or rather series of earthquakes, with which they have been visited. For nearly a fortnight there were every day shocks more or less severe, and all the brick and stone buildings in Wellington have been destroyed. Considering the great amount of damage done, (which private letters estimate at £30,000) it is wonder- ful that so little loss of life occurred. It would appear that a large tract of country was affected, for at Otakou and Nelson, on the south island, there were severe shocks, but the damage done was comparatively trifling. None of the volcanoes had shown any signs of erup- tion, but it was reported that at Queen Charlotte's Sound one had broken out. We take from the New Zealand Spec- tator the details of this awful visitation. Up to the sailing of the Harlequin, on the 4t...
Select Poetry. OH! WHAT A WORLD IT MIGHT BE! [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 5 December 1848
Select Poetry. &nbsp; OH! WHAT A WORLD IT MIGHT BE! (By Charles Swain.) Oh ! what a world it might be, if hearts were always kind ; &nbsp; If, Friendship, none would slight thee, And Fortune prove less blind ! With Love's own voice to guide us— Unchangingly and fond— &nbsp; With all we wish beside us, And not a care beyond. Oh ! what a world it might be, More blest than that of yore : Come, learn, and 'twill requite ye, To love each other more. Oh ! what a world of beauty A loving heart might plan— If man but did his duty, And helped his brother man ! Then angel-guests would brighten The threshold with their wings, And Love divine enlighten The old, forgotten springs. Oh ! what a world of beauty A loving heart might plan— If man but did his duty, And helped his brother man !

HIS Excellency the Governor directs it to be notified for the information of all persons interested, that in pursu- ance of Her Majesty's Order in Council of the 9th March, 1847, the undermen- tioned persons have demanded Leases of the several Runs of Crown Land, parti- cularised in connexion with their respec- tive names.
