[ADVERTISEMENT.]   'To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. SIR,-If it would not be presuming too much by an humble individual, may I take the liberty of requesting you to allow the following sketch to form a small paragraph in your respected journal; you were ever ready to devote your co-   lumns in advocating the cause of the injured, without distinction to sect or party, situation or position, and I, therefore, make the more bold to ask you to favour my request on this occasion. That I have suffered wrongfully, and am still suffering in body and mind, from the grievous wound inflicted upon me, may be inferred from the following statement of facts;-That I have been a resident of the Town of Melbourne for upwards of five years, is well known to the greater portion of the population-with many of whom I have had familiar acquaintance, trans- acting business in my way as a wire-worker and vendor of the articles of my own manufacture- and I can confidently refer...

PORT PHILLIP SEPARATION.—No. 3. [FROM OUR SYDNEY CORRESPONDENT.] Sydney, 17th July, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 24 July 1846

PORT PHILLIP SEPARATION.-No. 3. [rilOM OUR SYDNEY COnnESl'ONDENT.] Sydney, 17th July, 1846. Mu. Robinson', in his further evidence on thin subject, admitted that Port Phillip might have been first opened by means of money from this colony, but that it was all repaid in 1844. He did not doubt that at the end of the first five years, the expenditure of New South Wales, on account of Port Phillip, considerably exceeded the revenue derived from that district, but he considered that the doctrine that the land fund belonged to the empire, was contrary to law ; for by the Declaratory Act, l8 Geo. III., cap. 12, all duties, taxes, or assessments whatever, raised in British Colonies, are to be expended in the respective colonies in which they are raised. He might be told that the laud fund wat not either duties, taxes, or assessments ; but he maintained that duties, taxes, and assessments were money raised from the people, and so was the land fund money raised from the people also. The act t...

LATE ENGLISH NEWS. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 24 July 1846

LATE ENGLISH NEWS.**1 (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) We were favoured last night with the Atlas (edition for India) of the 24th March, which contains a fortnight's news. The paper before us has already' done service, having been sent from London to Calcutta, where it was read and forwarded to Manila, whence it was sent.per Osprey to Launceston, and was forwarded across the island to Van Diemen's Land to Hobart Town, where it arrived in time to be sent by the Rajah to a mercantile firm in Sydney, by whom it was kindly handed to us. This circuitous route gives us sixteen days later news than had pre- viously been received, which shows how much we have to gain when we shall be able to forward our mails by steam to India, and it is hardly possible to con- ceive of what immense importance the i{ overland mail,'" as it is absurdly call- ed, will be, when it contains, as it will do ere long the correspondence of nearly half the world-India, China, the Indian Archipelago (which is daily ...

THE OCCUPATION LICENSE SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 24 July 1846

THE OCCUPATION LICENSE SYSTEM. We promised our readers some time since a full initiation into the mysteries of the Occupation License System, which is now breedingso much disturbance in the Pro- vince, and we now proceed to redeem our promise. The system of granting occupation li- censes of Crown Lands to the highest bidders at auction, is not a new one-for it has existed many years-in the Middle District of the Colony ; and there, though productive enough of discord among 'neighbours, it has never operated so in- juriously as it must of necessity do here. To show why it is so, it is necessary to ,explain that in the Middle District the Government have not attempted to carry on the selling of. Crown Lands and the squatting system simultaneously in the same locality. Land has been sold there only inside the bounds of location, within which the squatting system is not in ope- ration, and the sales have not been ef- fected by the -continuous survey and pe- riodical sale system in opera...
