A HINT. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 5 June 1846
A HINT. The Cape of Good Hope and Port Natal Shipping Gazette, of the 30th January, contains an official notice issued by his Excellency Sir Peregrine Maitland, Go- vernor at the Cape, publishing for general information, a letter received by his Ex- cellency from Her Britannic Majesty's Minister Plenipotentiary in the River Plate, pointing out the advisability of establishing a commercial intercourse be- tween the Cape Colony and Monte Video, the capital of the River Plate territory, and inviting the immediate establishment of a direct trade. As every reason which exists rendering the establishment of a commercial inter- course between the Cape and Monte Video desirable, applies with at least equal force to the Australian Colonies, and as we think it of importance that our mercan- tile friends should be apprised of this new, and, as it seems to us, advantage- ous market for the sale of our colonial produce, we publish Mr. Ouseley's letter :— Monte Video, 23rd December, 1845. Sir,—It...

THE RECENT ATTACKS UPON SIR EARDLEY WILMOT. To the Editors of the Sydney Morning Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 5 June 1846
THE RECENT ATTACKS UPON SIR EARDLEY WILMOT. To the Editors of the Sydney Morning Herald. GENTLEMEN,—I feel assured that I do you but justice in presuming, that how much soever you may feel it to be your duty, on fitting occasions, to censure the acts of public men, you are not among the journalists who disgrace their useful useful profession by maligning private character, and still less among those who invent and circulate gross and unfounded calumnies: but that, on the contrary, your columns are open to those who would rebut the slander. ———Whose breath Rides on the posting winds, and doth belie All corners of the world. Shakspeare. You will remember that a short time ago a series of attacks of the most viru- lent nature were made in certain Van Diemen's Land papers upon the present Governor of that colony—not only af- fecting his political character (which is a fair subject for animadversion) but in- volving charges of gross immorality. Now as these charges were copied into some ...
To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 5 June 1846
To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Sir—I should feel obliged by your inserting the following :— Wishing to give Mr. Gilbert every opportunity of correcting the statement contained in the con- cluding part of his letter, in the Herald of the 2nd instant, I wrote to him as follows :— " June 2d. " Sir—It was with some surprise that I read the latter part of your letter in to-day's Herald. &nbsp; I mean that portion purporting to convey infor- mation of my projected departure lor England in three years. As it always gives me pain, even in self-defence, to wound another, I give you the &nbsp; option of correcting your mistake, having given you no information as to my intentions. Should you feel disposed to embrace the offer, I must beg for a copy of the terms in which you do so. " I am, Sir, " Your obedient servant, "William Brickwood, " G. A. Gilbert, Esq." In consequence of a representation from Mr. Gilbert, that he having to contradict the state- ment would prove in...
Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 5 June 1846
Domestic Intelligence Serious Accident.—We regret to state &nbsp; that on Sunday evening a very serious accident &nbsp; occurred to Mr. and Mrs. Taylor, of the Bakers' Arms, who were returning in a gig from the Springs. Coming down the hill on the further side of the Moonee Ponds swamps, the horse shied and backing the vehicle over a deep rut, Mrs. Taylor was thrown violently from her seat, and coming with her head and face in contact with the rood, she sustained very serious injury. Mr. Taylor finding that the vehicle must necessarily be upset, reined in the horse and threw himself out of the vehicle, fortunately escaping without &nbsp; any personal injury, though the gig was com- pletely destroyed. Mrs. Taylor, we are happy &nbsp; to learn is rapidly recovering, having yesterday &nbsp; been pronounced out of danger Coroner's Inquest—On Tuesday after- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; noon a Coroner's Inquest was held at the Prince...
NEW ZEALAND. (From the Sydney Morning Herald, May, 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 5 June 1846
NEW ZEALAND. (From the Sydney Morning Herald, May, 27. INTELLIGENCE from Wellington to the end of April came to hand yesterday morning. Nothing had transpired of any importance &nbsp; since our last advices. The Lieutenant Governor had not directed the expected attack to be made upan the natives at Po- rirura, it being doubtful whether the mur- derers of Gillespie were really harboured there. Martial Law had been proclaimed in that part of the Southern District " south of a line drawn from Wainui, in Cook's Straits, to Castle Point, on the east coast, excluding, therefrom, the town of Welling- ton." A considerable number of natives continued in a state of rebellion ; but they were not committing any acts of violence.

CATTLE STEALING IN A NEW FORM. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 5 June 1846
CATTLE STEALING IN A NEW FORM. &nbsp; &nbsp; Intelligence has reached us from so many different quarters that we can no longer refuse to give credence to the fact that an order has been issued by the local &nbsp; Executive, authorising the officers of the various Protectorate Establishments to seize and kill for the use of their sable clients all unbranded cattle above the age of twelve months, that they may be able to lay their hands upon, and this without the slightest reference to ownership, or any of the other trifling little distinctions &nbsp; of MEUM and TEUM which it is usually &nbsp; considered ought to obtain in all well-l regulated communities. There is a law, and a very arbitrary &nbsp; one it is, authorising the Commissioners of Crown Lands to impound unbranded &nbsp; cattle, and in the event of no owner ap- pearing, to cause them to be sold, and the proceeds paid to the public revenue, but the law which authorizes...

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Sir—It cannot diminish whatever it may strengthen your claim to public support at the opening of your paper to establish it as a medium (of giving pub- licity to such paragraphs and sentiments as may be conveyed to you, where the motives and intentions of the writers are pure, and intended for a good purpose. Nor can you indeed throw a brighter lustre on your columns than (that which is much wanting in this country,) to make them the strong advocate for Jus- tice, even handed Justice, to every grade in Society. If you take this as your former position, you may rest content that at this crisis it will much advance your interests. And as a commencement we beg that you will allow the following observations to be inserted in your jour- nal. To you, and the public generally, the subject matter of this suit cannot be a secret, and as the generality of the community sympathise with the party who sought relief, and redress by means of the court of equit...
Original Correspondence. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 5 June 1846
Original Correspondence. " The temper and character which prevail in our colonies, are, I am afraid, unalterable by any human art. We cannot, I fear, falsify the pedigree of this fierce people, and persuade them that they are not sprung from a nation, in whose veins the blood of freedom circulates. The language in which they would hear you &nbsp; tell them this tale, would detect the imposi- &nbsp; tion ; your speech would betray you. An Englishman is the unfittest person on earth to argue another Englishman into slavery." Such was the manly and elo- quent language which the great Edmund Burke, in the House of Commons, ad- dressed to the ministry, seventy-one years ago, in which he mocked at the plans and schemes by which they vainly hoped to crush the liberties of the co- lonists in America. The eloqueuce of the greatest man that ever adorned the country was unavailing, however, either to turn the wretched ministers from their purpose, or to awaken the nation into a...
