CEYLON. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 December 1848
CEYLON. The Torrington arrived on Sunday, &nbsp; brings intelligence of an insurrection &nbsp; having taken place among the Kandians and Cingalese, who had revolted against the British authority. We are unable to state positively what was the origin of the rising, but we gather that it was in con- sequence of an attempt to levy a polltax, which the natives were told would render a personal examination of the women ne- cessary.There had been much previous &nbsp; dissatisfaction, and this belief caused the feelings of the people to become so excited that they proclainied a descendant of the family that once ruled, King of Kandy. They then attacked the plantations, com- mitting serious outrages, and made them- selves masters of some of the smaller towns. Martial law was immediately proclaimed, and the insurrection was very speedily quelled. A large number of fa- milies being thrown out of employment in consequence of the stoppage of the plantations occasioned by...

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 12, 1848. BRIBERY AND CORRUPTION. This oft quoted subject has, for the pre- sent, nearly exhausted itself, but while we trust that it may sink into men's minds, as a warning for the future, we have still one duty to perform. It is that of reimbursing the gentleman mainly in- strumental in the detection of so much guilt, in the very heavy expenses to which his patriotic course has exposed him. The Government, which affected so much anxiety to investigate a charge against the spotless purity which it so eagerly looks for, and insists upon in its officials, has denied all responsibility in the charges of the detection of so gross a case, by condescending to a subterfuge, well worthy of such a Government. We will not insult the people of Port Phillip by supposing for one moment that a single farthing of the expenses in such a cause, will be lef...
UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 December 1848
UNITED STATES. The most important news from the United States is that of a most destruc- tive fire which occurred at the city ol Albany, on the 17th August. Most of the commercial portion of the city, with 15 or 20 densely populated streets and squares, were in five hours reduced to ruins. From Herkimer-street, where the fire broke out, to Columbia-street, where it was arrested, the distance was more than half a-mile. The ruins covered an area of 200 acres, every foot of which was densely covered with building ; there were more houses upon it than upon any equal space in the city. Four-fifths of the buildings burnt were brick, most of them large and substantial structures; many of them three and four stories high. The latest accounts from the scene of calamity represent that 439 valuable houses were destroyed ; besides which 11 tow-boats, between 40 and 60 canal boats, 1 schooner, and 2 floats were burned on the water, and the burning wrecks of these vessels floating against the Col...

Domestic Intelligence. &nbsp; New Police Office.—Mr. Alexander Sutherland, the builder, has obtained by tender, the contract for fitting up the interior of the new police office. Mr. S. has engaged to have the building ready for the accommodation of the public by the 20th of February next. Cancelling an Agreement—A young man named Wm. George Bristowe, lately in the service of Mr. James Purves, a farmer, appeared at the police office on Wednesday last, to compel his master to cancel an agreement entered into some six months since. The application was made in consequence of ill-health, and a medical certificate to that effect was handed in by Bristowe. A letter was read from Mr. Purves, stating that he was busy shearing and could not attend to the summons ; but expressed his con- sent to the man leaving his employment under the circumstances. Agreement cancelled. Assaults.—After the " charge sheet" at the police office had been gone through on Wednesday last, Mr. Hull, who pre...
MR. PORTER'S LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 December 1848
MR. PORTER'S LETTER. The gloomy letter of Mr. John Porter published some time since, has pro- voked the following retort from one of our industrious settlers, who appears not to relish, and feels called upon to resent, the discouraging tone which pervaded that "lugubrious" epistle. There is a freshness about some of these letters from the country, which comes like a whiff of pure air, to us dusty denizens of the town, and makes us wish that the dormant faculties of our country friends oftener gave signs of awaken- ing. To the Editor of the Geelong Advertiser. Dear Sir,—I find on looking over the Port Phillip Herald Extraordinary, of the 16th November, that Mr. John Porter has inflicted us with another of his lugubrious epistles, which he face- tiously calls "Commercial Letters," God save the mark ! There is no occasion for combating his attempts at argument. At least if such were required in dealing with his first letter, any confutation of his second is rendered superfluous by Mr. ...
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. December 8, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 December 1848
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. December 8, 1848. Mr. Editor, I now proceed to give a sketch of the Wool Trade of Great Britain, for the last twenty years, i. e. from 1827 down to 1846. In order to simplify the calcula- tions, and save needless details, I shall . divide this period of twenty years, into divisions of five years each, and shall give the result in millions of pounds, rejecting minor quantities. Table I.—Wool Imported. Foreign. Colonial. Total Inclusive. Million lbs. Mil. lbs. Millions. 1827 to 1831 136 8 144 1832 .. 1836 198 20 218 1837 .. 1841 202 61 263 184-2 .. 1846 175 123 297 We thus see that during the above period, the import of wool into Great Britain, from all parts of the world, in- creased by 163 millions pounds, or say at the rate of 106 per cent., in other words it more than doubled. It may farther be remarked, that the increase, during the second period, i. e. from 1832 to 1836, exceeded that of the preceding five years, by 74 million...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 December 1848
Domestic Intelligence. &nbsp; &nbsp; "Pity 'tis, 'tis true."—Amongst the &nbsp; various expressions of sympathy and confidence which our present position has drawn from all parties, and from all sides, &nbsp; there is a tone frequently adopted which jars sadly upon our sensorium. It is a tone of commiseration for the tissue ol serious scrapes in which these gentry fancy that we have involved ourselves, and of condolence in our various misfor- tunes, past, present, and to come. Now, of all sentiments that we are likely to excite in &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; the minds of our friends, that of pity is pretty nearly the last that we should de- sire to exist. Compassion is much too nearly allied to contempt, for us to wish such a feeling to exist towards us; we, therefore, take the most public and direct means of requesting all parties to reserve their commiseration till they are asked &nbsp; &nbsp; &...

SUPREME COURT. IN CHAMBERS. Saturday 8th December, 1848. Before his Honor the Resident Judge. Raleigh v Livingstone.—This cause had been argued in Term, and his Honor reserved judg- ment till this day. His Honor stated that the case involved some points of difficulty, upon which he was desirous of taking the opinion of the Sydney Judges. Mr. Stawell said he would willingly take the decision of his Honor, whatever it might be, with- out reference to Sydney. His Honor said there were some most important matters for consideration, and he had, therefore, determined upon sending the case for the decision of the Sydney Bench. Austin v. Crossley.—His Honor gave judgment &nbsp; in this case at considerable length ; it had been heard in Banco,and the question at issue involved a reference to the master to review his taxation of the bill of costs, chiefly with regard to items of expenditure for consultations in the action. His Honor cited several cases bearing upon the point, among th...
THE NEW REGULATIONS FOR THE SETTLED DISTRICTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 December 1848
THE NEW REGULATIONS FOR THE SETTLED DISTRICTS. We are charged by the Geelong Ad- vertiser with an " insensate attempt " to create a prejudice against the Govern- ment notice of the 21st Nov. which is furnishing so interesting a matter for discussion to squatters in the Settled Districts. If as much attention had been paid to our remarks, as should have been paid by any one who intended to com- ment upon them, they would have been found to refer less to the notice of the 21st Nov., than to the whole code of new regulations of the 29th of March, to which that notice referred. Our con- temporary makes a regular hotch-potch of the two, and proves how carefully he has studied the subject by saying that, The present holders may, if they wish to do so, purchase thirty acres of any, or each section in their runs, and thereby secure the exclusive oc- cupancy of the whole of such sections. whereas our reading of the notice is, that though the application to purchase 30 acres confers exclusive...

PORT PHILLIP. Superintendent's Office, Melbourne, 13th December, 1848. SUPPLEMENTARY LIST OF CLAIMS TO LEASES OF CROWN LAND BEYOND THE SETTLED DISTRICTS. WIMMERA DISTRICT.
