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

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Mr. Editor—I now come to con- sider the probable actual increase in production of wool, in the British colo- nies, not as ruled by demand, but by the natural increase of the flocks of sheep, and as exhibited during the preceding period of 20 years. This increase was, during the second term of five years to the preceding, as 2½ to 1 ; during the third, as 3 to 1 ; and during the fourth, as 2 to 1 ; or for simplification, say as 2½ to 1 generally. Upon this ratio then the wool produced in the British colo- nies, during the five years 1847-51, will amount to 307,000,000 lbs; 1852-6, to 763,000,000 lbs ; 1857-61 to 1,907,000,000 lbs ; 1861-6, to 3,767,000,000 lbs ; or during the twenty years, the total colonial produc- tion will equal 6,744,000,000 of lbs !   Let us next endeavour to ascertain the relative proportion of this enormous increase, as divided between New South Wales and the other British colonies— here it will...

THE LAW OF EVIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 December 1848

THE LAW OF EVIDENCE. A case, which came before the Supreme Court on Monday last, and which is re- ported in another column, is suggestive of very serious reflection, respecting the state of the laws respecting evidence; and it is with sincere gratification, that we find his Honor announcing his inten- tion of advocating their reform. The escape of a man charged with such a crime, if really guilty, or his leaving the court with such an imputation upon his name, if innocent, are matters for much solemn consideration, but there is much more room for comment upon the light thrown upon the working of the law, and the possible effects resulting from its inefficiency. That the admis- sion of evidence otherwise than upon oath, may be attended with bad results, no one can deny, and to a certain extent, we ap- prove of the jealousy which British legis- lation has ever shewn upon the subject, But that such a rule should be adhered to, so strictly as to admit of immunity to such atrocities as t...

MELBOURNE MARKETS. Thursday, Dec, 21. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 December 1848

COMMERICLAL   MELBOURNE MARKETS. Thursday, Dec, 21. Grain.-No transactions in wheat having taken place since our last report, the prices which we quote—from 3s. 9d, to 4s. per bushel must be considered as merely nominal. Reports from the country state that the ensuing harvest will not be so prolific as was anticipated, as owing to the super abundance of rain and severity of the cold this season, the ears of the present crop are much shorter and smaller than usual. Should the weather continue as favourable for ripening as it has been for the last few days, it is expected that the sickle will be busy at work in less than a fortnight. Until the commencement of harvest operations, no alteration from the present rates can be looked for. The aspect of the barley- crop throughout the district is reported to be in- dicative of an unusually large product, and this species of grain has been cultivated to a much larger extent this season than it has hitherto been. Flour —We have n...

THE PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 December 1848

THE PUBLIC MEETING. It is with great regret that we observe the tone which prevailed at the meeting on Tuesday, to consider the effect of the New Regulations for the tenure of Crown lands within the settled districts. We had hoped that the imminent and imme- diate evils, which those absurd, and complicated regulations were about to produce upon all classes exposed to their action, would have caused all intelligent men for once to have sunk all minor, and petty considerations, and to have adopted a tone at once bold and unanimous, which might have produced some effect at head quarters. We had hoped that the ill effects which most men allow must eventually arise from a system of regula- tions, which crosc [cross] one another at every point, till their very concocter confesses himself puzzeled to explain them, would have induced a demand from all parties for such moderate delay as would enable enable us to form an opinion as to their applicability to our wants, before all our most impo...

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 whoso list." FRIDAY, DECEMBER 22, 1848. THE JUDGE'S DEFENCE. Although of no moment, as regards the question whether Judge a'Beckett, in re- pealing the rules of the court, was or was not guilty of "making a rule to suit a   particular case," we must not suffer his Honor to lead people astray with the notion that the Law intends a felon's im- prisonment " as a fit punishment for the libeller ," for such is not the fact. It is notorious that at the present moment strong doubts are entertained by the leading members of the legal profes- sion, whether imprisonment of any kind for damages and costs, in a civil action for libel, is legal, and it will be observed that his Honor himself declines saying judicially whether it is so or not. But leaving out of the question the ab- surdity of alleging that the law intended imprisonment " as a fit punishment for the libelle...

Colonial Secretary's Office, Sydney, 8th Dec., 1848. CROWN LANDS BEYOND THE SETTLED DISTRICTS. CAUTION AGAINST UNAUTHORISED   OCCUPATION.   THE recent Proclamation of three new Commissioners' Districts, namely,   the Burnett, the Maranoa, and Wide Bay, having rendered a large extent of coun- try available for occupation on the terms prescribed in Her Majesty's Order in Council of 9th March, 1847, and the local regulations founded thereon,—His Excel- lency the Governor deems the present a fitting opportunity for cautioning all persons who may take unauthorised pos- session of Runs of Crown Land, that although the Government may not find it practicable or expedient to take imme- diate measures for the removal of persons who may form Stations beyond the limits assigned to existing Commissioners' Dis- tricts, and consequently beyond the range of authorised occupation, the holding of the Lands upon which such Stations may be formed will not be regar...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 December 1848

Domestic Intelligence. Steam Communication.—In con- sequence of a statement which appeared in the London papers early in August, that a contract was immediately to be completed with a company called the India and Peninsula Steam Company for carrying the mails from Singapore to Sydney, the Hon. Francis Scott, M.P., Mr. Mark Boyd, and Mr. C. D. Logan, waited upon the Earl of Shelbourne, at the Treasury, to whom the papers had referred, to ascertain what the announce- ment meant. A gentleman who was pre- sent with his Lordship, stated that what had appeared in the newspapers was un- authorised. Mr. Boyd remarked that he was glad to hear this, as the announce- ment of a contract being given to a Com- pany which he had every reason to be- lieve had not yet raised its capital, was in his opinion, and in that of other Aus- tralian merchants, shelving the question ; or that as the Government might be also aware of this fact, by keeping up nego- tiations with the India and Peninsula Company,...

PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 22 December 1848

PUBLIC MEETING. A meeting of gentlemen and others connected with the squatting and agri- cultural interests was held at the Royal Hotel, on Tuesday last, pursuant to public notice, for the purpose of consi- dering the probable effect of the Govern- ment Regulations of the 29th March, and 21st November, upon the Settled Districts of Port Phillip. The meeting was most respectably and numerously   attended, the importance of the subject having drawn together a rather unusual   concourse of country gentlemen. At one o'clock the hour appointed by   advertisement, Dr. Macarthur, J.P., was called to the chair. The worthy chair- man stated to the meeting that the fact of his acting in that capacity must not be looked on as identifying himself with the land orders, as he wished to dis- charge his duties as an impartial chair- man. Mr. Furlonge, of the Merri Creek, said he had proposed an adjournment of the last meeting, owing to the limited number of pe...

Mr. Bowman deposed that the defendant had been ordered to take his flock to a high position of the run called the Sugar Loaf Ranges, because of the flats being flooded in consequence of the late heavy rains, but that he refused, alleging as a reason that he would not cross the wet fields ; it was further stated that the defendant had lost six sheep owing to negligence. Fitzsimons stated in defence that he had been in a very delicate state of health for some months back, and produced a medical cer- tificate in support of his statement; that he did refuse to wade through the water, knowing that such a proceeding would be productive of serious c...
