Mr. Plumptre, the member for East Kent, took his stand upon hops, for Sir Charles Knightley there was nothing like leather as an object of protection ; and Mr. Ripon defended straw plait-for five minutes. Silks occasioned much solemu debate wherein Mr. Bankes tool the lead. The party have been complaining of the ten per cent, protection re- served to manufacturers, while protective duties on agnculti ral produce are abandoned ; hut, much as they preach " consistency," they now advanced topiotect some of these begrudged du tieä on manufactures.

THE LATE POPISH RIOTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 24 July 1846

THE LATE POPISH RIOTS. Many of our readers having expressed an anxious desire for the publication of a full, true, and particular account of the late Popish riots in time for transmission to the mother country by the mail of the Glenbervie, we gladly comply with their wish. FIRST DAY. The 12th of July, the anniversary of the final battle which drove the recreant King James from the British throne, and firmly established the Protestant religion in our native land, happening this year to fall upon the Sabbath, the Orangemen   of Melbourne, belonging to the Irish,   Caledonian, and Olive Branch Lodges, made arrangements for the celebra- tion of the customary festival in the large room of the Pastoral Hotel, in Queen street, the landlord of which had ob- tained the necessary permission from the licensing magistrates for keeping his house open during the night on the oc- casion. The numbers expected to be present being unusually large, and the preparations on a ...

Stomtôtic Intilltantrt. The Press.-An effoit was made dur- ing the past week to get up -an exclusively Roman Catholic journal in Melbourne, to he like the Chtontcle at Sydney, under the surveillance of the resident clergymen of the Roman Catholic Church. Ihe eflort which originated in the dis- satisfaction of certain of the mob leaders with the conduct of tneir guardian organ m not " coing the whole hog" in justification of the Popish mur- derers, who assailed the Pastoral Hotel on the afternoon of the 13th instant, proved a failure, the requisite capital not being forthcoming. We are sorry that the project has (oiled of success, for we would rather at any time have to deal with a man acting conscientiously, though erroneously, than with one who is "selling his birth-right for a mess of pottage." Capt. Rock.-The Popish rabble w ho begun the battle, seem determined that no step shall be wanting to reduce Melbourne to a par with the most unsettled districts of the South and West of Ir...

CONVICT DIICIPLIN.E DRAFT OF LORD STANLEY S PROPOSED DESPATCH TO THE GOVERNOR OF VAN DIEMEN's LAND, Continued. The second exception to the success of the probationery system of November, 1842, consists in the want of any ade- quate effective demand for the labour of the convicts, whether before or after the expiration of the pobationary term. This, indeed, may be said to be almost the single theme of the whole series of your own despatches already enumerated. In those despatches you have again and again recorded the rapid increase (actual and prospective) in their numbers ; the increasing poverty of the free colonists; and their diminished ability, either as a community or as individuals, to find lucrative employment for these persons ; the necessity to which you have been driven of employing many hundred pass holders on hire in the public service ; the plans you had devised for employing all the convicts, either in colonial works, in return for a small annual payment by the colony,...
