MELBOURNE MARKETS. Thursday, 7th December, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 8 December 1848

MELBOURNE MARKETS.   Thursday, 7th December, 1848.   Grain.—If any change in the wheat market, can be reported this week, it is that the prices we last quoted (from 3s 10d to 4s) are firmer, which is attributable to the protracted severity of the weather. The stock of wheat at present in the district is so small, that the millers have been obliged to forward large orders to V. D. Land, to enable them to meet the demand of their cus- tomers. Oats are selling at 4s, and the quality of those now in the market is very indifferent. Maize 2s 3d per bushel. Flour.—First quality of flour is selling at the   Mills at £10 10s, and seconds at £9 10s per 2000 lbs. The demand during this week was greater than it has been for some time past, but prices are not affected in consequence, which they would be but for a considerable stock of V. D. Land flour being in the market, and for sale at 10s per ton lower than these rates.   Hay.—During the wee...

THE RESIDENT JUDGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 8 December 1848

THE RESIDENT JUDGE. Common report has it, that the Crown Prosecutor has, at the instance of His Honor the Resident Judge, made appli- cation to the Governor for the appoint- ment of a Special Commission from the Supreme Court at Sydney, for the pur- pose of bringing Mr. Alderman Johnston to trial for the offence of " freedom of speech," in relation to Mr. Justice A'Beckett, during the discussion on the late Mandamus case, at the Town Council meeting, on the 30th ultimo, and of pun- ishing the publishers of the Argus and Daily News for their temerity, in re- porting the proceedings on that occasion. Small as is the respect we entertain for Mr. Justice A'Beckett's wisdom, we can hardly bring ourselves to believe in the possibility of such utter infatuation ; and yet it is not easy to imagine any lengths to which such a man will not go. Within the year we have seen him trying to get the power of bundling refractory Editors off to Sydney, and he is even now, exercising in his own case, ...

Two witnesses (Mr. Francis Edeson and the claimant) were examined at great length by the several learned Gentlemen, and the evidence given by them went to prove that there was no partnership existing between Scott and Hornblower at any time. At four o'clock the meeting was further adjourned till Monday, for the examination of the insolvent, and to enable Mr. Scott to produce a book in which it was alleged by Hornblower that the partnership accounts were entered. The Commissioner intimated that if Mr. Scott did not produce the book in question, his claim would not be allowed.

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 8 December 1848

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir—As the proprietor of a journal which has suffered much from the pre- rogatives tested in government officials ; I beg leave to request, that, you will for a moment indulge your readers with a slight insight into the nature of those vested in the "Acting Chief Constable," who has apparently no objection to stretch them (to what I should suppose) beyond their limits, and that not even in zeal for the public service, but rather, to blazon forth newly—and per- haps unexpected—acquired consequence, or to gratiiy some private pique. If the City is to pay for a police force, surely no effort should be left unmade, to render it effective ; and instead of admitting a parcel of fellows who—to use an old phrase—"do not know B from a bull's foot;" to seek, if necessary, persons who have had some experience, and not on account—except that of drunkenness, or dishonesty—to reject the applications of those, whose abilities are vouched for, by...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 8 December 1848

Domestic Intelligence. A Silent Press.—In the course of a   speech at the City Council, which has been   the subject of considerable discussion out of doors, Alderman Johnston took occa- sion to remark that the course pursued by the Resident Judge was such, that " even the press was cowed into submissive and prudent silence." Now as fas as the   Argus is concerned, considering that our faults have ever pointed rather to the plain speaking point of the compass than the reverse, considering what we have lately undergone, that even now we may con- sider ourselves to be standing with one foot upon the treadmill, that an honest expression of our opinions has raised us hosts of enemies, and that the very insects which so miserably darken our colonial atmosphere have begun to buzz forth feeble murmurs at our attacking "any- thing elevated," we conceive ourselves hardly used, by so sweeping a charge. We can refer to the whole course of this journal as ...
