EARL GREY, [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 September 1848

EARL GREY. We find the following sketch of the Noble and Right Honorable member for Melbourne (Earl Grey, then Lord Howick), in a work entitled St. Stephens, or Pencillings of Politicians, by "MASK," published in 1839:— LORD HOWICK. " Fortes creantur fortibus et bonie." Horace. Among the members who frequently address the House of Commons, the casual visitor in the gallery of the House will observe a thin young man, with car- rotty hair and rather an unintellectual cast of countenance, whom he will be very apt to set down as a bore. First impressions are not always the most correct, although they are certainly the strongest; so reserve your judgment, stranger, and listen to the sandy-haired, silly-looking young man again. He has a shocking voice—that I must allow. Squeaking and harsh it is to the extent of inflicting absolute discomfort upon his auditors. I admit, also, that it is as un- pleasant to look at him as to listen to him. Besides his general unintellectual appearance, his ...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 September 1848

Original Correspondence. to the Editor of the Argus.           Sir,—I take the liberty of submitting a few observations (through the medium of your   columns) to the public of Melbourne, whose   generosity is only equalled by their appreciation of faithfulness in government officials .—Query ! Is it on account of its rarity in that class ? upon an article which appeared in the Herald of Tuesday last, under the head of " The Chief Constableship," in which the retiring Chief receives the warm ap- probation of the Editor, doubtless on behalf of that class whose interest he advocates; but, whilst every good citizen must join in the appropriate " good bye" there given to Mr. Sugden, deserving it, as he undoubtedly does, for the faithful per- formance of his public duties, still there will be many who will not so easily acquiesce in the assertion that no Chief Constable ever retired from office in this province,...

COUNTRY NEWS. [FROM OUR SEYMOUR CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 September 1848

COUNTRY NEWS.   ( FROM OUR SEYMOUR CORRESPONDENT. ) Our apprehensions and the waters of the Goul- burn have subsided simultaneously. On the 10th instant the re-action commenced, and from   that date the fall had been rapid. Prior to this, however, matters had put on a serious aspect; the waters were bank and back, and a very slight addition to their turgid and rapid body would have placed us in a delimma, similar to that of last year, when for three weeks we were isolated from the surrounding country ; the fates have fortunately smiled blandly upon us, and the   slight check of traffic which was interposed hav- ing passed away, Seymour has been more lively, than for some months past, drays laden with stores or proceeding to town to procure them, droves of sheep and herds of cattle, with bands of shearers and "new chums" may be seen daily     passing and repassing through the township, evi- dencing the active circulation of the vital prin- &...

Effingham Wilson, publisher, No. 11, Royal Exchange "   Municipal.—Some of our local con- temporaries we observe are indulging themselves in speculating upon an imaginary disqualification of Mr. Councillor Kerr with regard to his seat in the Town Council. We are sorry to have to inform these very good friends that even this very small modicum of consolation will not be forthcoming. The worthy Councillor has neither become in- solvent nor compounded with his creditors, and has no intention of doing anything of the kind, the failu...

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 whose list." TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1848. THE DISTRICT ELECTION. We give in another column a condensed, but we believe a faithful report of the proceedings at the meeting for the nomi- nation of members of the Legislative Council for the Electoral District of Port Phillip, held at Geelong on Thursday last.   If by the change in the place of nomi- nation it was contemplated that anything was to be gained beyond a mere nominal return of members, the experiment has been an ut'er failure, for the " Mel- bourne mob," about which our Geelong contemporaries used to expatiate in con- nexion with these election proceedings, have proved to be as immeasurably superior to the " brute force" savages who appeared in support of " real election principles" at Geelong, as the Peerage candidates are in moral and intellectual standing to the heterogeneous medly got ...

MATTERS MUNICIPAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 September 1848

MATTERS MUNICIPAL.   Regularly as approach the ides of No-   vember our local contemporaries are seized with a species of civic-phobia, or municipal madness of which the distin- guishing symptom is an overpowering dread of the election of Mr. Councillor Kerr to the Mayoralty. It matters not whether that gentleman is seeking or eschewing the office, whether it would suit him to have or to want it, he is des- tined sooner or later to fill the high and mighty office of Mayor of Melbourne, and therefore it is set down as one of those   things which do not admit of dispute that he "always was, always is, and if in the Council, always will be a candi- date."   The Herald is now labouring under one of these periodical attacks, and the fit is more than ordinarily rabid owing to the threatening aspect of affairs in con- nexion with the approaching municipal elections, which leaves little hope of ward- ing off the evil day if the dreaded Cou...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 September 1848

ENGLISH NEWS. The Melbourne, arrived late last night, brings us English intelligence to the 5th June. The following are the only addi- tional items of importance which have attracted our attention:—   Thee Ministry had been defeated in the House of Lords on the Jewish Disabilities Bill which was rejected on the second reading by a majority of 35, and in the House of Commons on an amendment of the Roman Catholic Relief Bill for dividing the measure into two parts, so as to enable those who were in favour of retaining the restrictions contained in the Catholic Emancipa- tion Act, to vote, if they pleased, for that portion of the bill, which, not affecting these restrictions, provided merely for the abolition of the obsolete statutes, the continuance of which was regarded as a grievance by the Roman Catholics, which was earned by a majority of 13. Her Royal Highness the Princess Sophia is announced in the list of deaths. Dr Kyle, the Bishop of Cork, is also dead, and it wa...

THE DISTRICT ELECTION. Thursday last being the day appointed for the nomination at Geelong of five members to serve   in the Legislative Council of New South Wales, for the Electoral District of Port Phillip, the proceedings commenced with a preliminary meet-   ing in the Theatre on Wednesday evening, at which the Geelong advocates of " constitutional principles" (as they love to style themselves) manifested their sincerity by substituting brute force for reason and argument, and a scene of incredible confusion terminated in the extinguish- ing of the lights, and the abandonment of the meeting without anything definite being done, and without a hearing being vouchsafed to a single Melbourne elector. In defiance of a heavy fall of rain, the hustings on the following morning were occupied and sur- rounded by an assemblage of from two to three hundred people, mostly consisting of the squat-   tocracy of Geelong and its neighbourhood, with a numero...

Domestic Intelligence. Melancholy Occurrence - On Thurs- day the 14th instant, a fine child, two years of age, belonging to John Whitty, a farmer on Mr. Furlong's property, Merri Creek, strayed away from its home and has not since been heard of. It seems that the mother had sent an older girl a short distance from the hut for some purpose or other, and the child had followed her sister. She was soon missed by the mother, who imme- diately gave the alarm to her neighbours, but though they searched the country for several miles round the hut, every attempt to find or trace the child had proved abortive up to the date of the latest intelligence. Pentonvillainy. - It will scarcely be believed that in the face of all the evils of the introduction of horde after horde of Pentonvillains our treacherous Superintendent Mr. La Trobe has led Earl Grey to believe that the system is work- ing well.
