THE SQUATTING REGULATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 December 1848

THE SQUATTING REGULATIONS.   While the discussion of the new notices and regulations respecting squatting, is fresh in the memory of our readers, and the squatting mind is therefore par- ticularly open to impression, we beg to refer to the following notice in the last Government Gazette, and to suggest that the tone there adopted seems pretty strongly to confiim the opinion we have always entertained, that it is the intention of the Government to withhold the right of   transfer. The extreme caution indicated in the case of Insolvents, upon a subject which has hitherto been considered a matter of course, will bear no other inter- pretation. However gratified our squat- ting friends may feel at their present prospects of long leases to their runs, we beg them to look forward for a year or two, and ask themselves if any change should take place in their health, prospects, or tastes, how they will relish having to turn over their fine runs to the Government, a...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 December 1848

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—I now proceed to consider the pro- gress of Agriculture in New South Wales for the ten years, commencing 1836, and terminating 1846—and for the general date, I shall, as I did on the subject of pasturage, trust to the official returns fumished by Government to the Colonial Legislative Assembly, arranged in periods of five years each—and having laid the result before your readers, I shall in the next place, endeavour in so far as my facts will admit of, to do the same by the Agriculture of Australia Felix, Port Phillip or Victoria—premising, however, that my means of doing so, will of neces- sity be far short of what I could wish— there being no line of division drawn in   the government returns betwixt the Agri- culture of the Middle District and this quarter—a circumstance the more to be   wondered at, when it is kept in view that on almost every other subject, except agri- culture, the progress of ...

CHINESE IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 December 1848

CHINESE IMMIGRATION. We lately published a rather interesting letter upon this subject, which we kept over, for some time, as we considered that it deserved, and required a few remarks;   and in the issue of to-day we furnish some particulars of the first experiment of this sort, which has been attempted in Port Phillip. Foreign immigration has always been looked upon, here, with rather a jealous eye, and it has been an easy matter to get up a cry, particularly among the parties, who are considered as interested in main- taining a high rate of wages, against the coolie and cannibal genus. We go a great way with parties opposed to too heteroge- neous a mixture of races; but at the same   time we have never been very great alarm- ists as to the danger of deteriorating the pure Caucasian blood, of which we boast, by an occasional mixture with that of men of other races. We have been ten times more frightened, and more hurt at seeing honest, intelligent and res...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. (From the South Australian Register.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 December 1848

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. (From the South Australian Register.) By the barque Acasta, we have news from the Cape to the 12th October, from Graham's Town to the 23rd September, and a communication from a private correspondent at Port Elizabeth, from which we make the following extract:—     You would do well to acquaint your readers, and the shippers of wheat from Port Adelaide, that several steam mills have lately been erected at this place, and that there is now a good market for wheat. That higher prices are always likely to be obtained here than in Cape Town must be manifest from the fact, that almost all our supplies of bread-stuff come from Cape Town.—   Last year the aggregate quantity of 40,000 muids   (equal to about 120,000 imperial bushels) was exported from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth.—   As all vessels from the east make Cape Relief, which forms part of this Bay, it would not be out of their way to call in here fo...

WESTERN AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 December 1848

WESTERN AUSTRALIA. The Waterlilly, arrived at S. Australia, brings news from the Swan River settle- ment to the 25th ultimo. We are indebted to our Adelaide contemporaries for the following News:   The New Governor had been devising measures for the improvement of the har- bour and pilotage regulations, at Free- mantle, and was attempting to render the entrance to the Swan capable of receiving (at least) vessels of small burthen. His Excellency, accompanied by his Private Secretary, was going in the schooner Champion, to visit the settlements in the southern and western parts of the Pro- vince, and his general activity, zeal, and intelligence, were much commended. The wheat harvest was likely to be good. Much more grain had been grown this year than last ; and to encourage the farmer to devote more attention to wheat growing, and thus enable the Colony to provide for its own consumption, it was proposed that a company should be formed, and Tenders issued by it immediate...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 December 1848

Domestic Intelligence.   Melbourne Building Society.—The first annual report of the operations of this insti- tution has just been published by the Committee, accompanied by a balance sheet, showing the   profit and loss during the last twelve months, and   giving a view of the progress and prospects of the Society, at the close of the first year of its existence. It appears, to such an extent has it been appreciated, as the principle and working of the association became better understood, that the   Cornmittee anticipate an increased rate of profit during the ensuing year ; during the expired twelve months the progress made towards the realization of the full sum of £120 per share, has been £16 7s. 4d. on the total number of shares subsscribed for. As an instance of the continued prosperity of the Society, it may be noticed that at the first sale of shares the premium given was £66 per share, since which time it has gradually and...

CHINESE IMMIGRANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 December 1848

CHINESE IMMIGRANTS. A good deal of interest has been ex- cited by the importation of Chinese la- bourers, by the Philip Laing, lately arrived at Geelong, The following par- ticulars respecting them, have been fur- nished us by an intelligent resident of that neighbourhood. It appears that the Settlers on this side of the country, apprehensive of an increasing scarcity of labour for the present season, and in the absence of authentic information upon the prospect of an extensive government emigration, raised by subscription, amongst themselves, the amount necessary to import the batch per Philip Laing, and commissioned Mr. Johnston to proceed to Singapore to engage them —each settler putting down his name for the number of men he would receive. The number imported is 219 ; comprising 123 Chinamen, 81 Klings, (one female) 8 Malays, and the remainder natives of different parts of India. I believe that Klings is the term in the Malay tongue, applied to the natives of the Ma- &nb...

THE WOMEN'S CHARTER. (From Punch.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 December 1848

THE WOMEN'S CHARTER. (From Punch.) We believe in the speedy freedom of the female sex. The beautiful half of the creation—and, like the rosy side of a peach, the much better half—has too long been in bonds. The cunning, the selfishness, and the cowardice of man have, apart and together, operated for many thousand years to crush the lovely flower, or at best that he might wear it, as one may say, in his button-hole as little more than a fragrant, blooming ornament for a brief holiday. These   days are fast going—dying upon the   save-all of Time. At length women are beginning to know their own strength— at length the hour of equality is about to strike; and when it has struck, the world will really for the first time know what's o'clock. The women, be it known then, have resolved upon a charter ; a triple charter —for maid, wife, and widow. Each con- dition of life is to rest upon its seven points. At present we are only enabled to give them ; but we are happy to inform ...

THE LAW OF EVIDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 December 1848

THE LAW OF EVIDENCE. In reference to the remarks in our last number, relative to the defeat of the ends of justice, in cases of criminal assaults on infants of tender years, from the in- admissibility of the evidence of the little sufferers, on the ground of their being unable to comprehend the nature of an oath, we are reminded that in this as in many other respects, our legislators might derive an useful lesson from the law of Scotland. There, so tender is the feeling as to the sanctity of an oath, that no child, however intelligent, is deemed competent to take such a solemn obligation, until after attaining the age of twelve in fe- males, and fourteen in males, but where- ever the necessity arises, the unsworn testimony of infants is received by the court, and the jury left to judge of its worth. The law of the Colony requires amend- ment in this respect, both with regard to infants, and to the Aborigines, who stand in a somewhat similar position. An attempt was made some years s...

THE POTATO ROT. (From the Gardeners' Chronicle, August 19.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 December 1848

THE POTATO ROT. (From the Gardeners' Chronicle, August 19.) The universal rot among potatoes in the south and west of England renders special reports needless. Matters are becoming worse every day, as might have been anticipated ; and the question now is, not whose are to perish, but whose are to be saved ? Scotland and the north of England appear, upon the whole, to remain exempt : but there are excep- tions, as about Kendal. We rise from the perusal of a pile of   Irish Reports, dated as late as August 11, with the perfect conviction that in all the south of Ireland the injury done to the Potatoes is at least as great as in 1845, and probably equal to that of 1846. The fact is beyond a doubt ; as it is even admitted by those who have been hoping against all experience, that this hideous pestilence would be stayed. It is useless to fill space with even an abridgment of the statements before us. The following extracts from letters written by persons having every possibl...

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 26, 1848. THE POTATO ROT. In another column, we furnish our readers with the details of the extent, to which this terrible scourge is again prevailing in the United Kingdom, and particularly in unhappy Ireland. The periodical from which these details are extracted, has always distinguished itself, for the care with which its reports are collected, and for the general accuracy of its informa- tion, upon all subjects of that nature. There can, therefore, be no doubt what- ever, that a very great proportion of the principal food of a large section of the British population, is again doomed to premature destruction ; that we may look for a return of' the painful scenes which lately harrowed the feelings of every civilized country in the world ; and that famine, and its attendant diseases, in all their dread reality, will again be found stalking...

Alderman Greeves was called to the chair. MINUTES. The minutes of last meeting were read and confirmed.   THE LEVELS. Alderman Kerr, in the absence of Alderman Johnston, (who had not then arrived,) brought up the following report from the Committee of the whole Coun- cil, appointed to review the levels of the City, recommending a number of altera- tion in the levels of Collins-street, at its eastern end, and in Bourke and Queen-streets. The report having been received, Al- derman Kerr moved the suspension of standing order No. 8, for the purpose of admitting of the consideration of the report, so as to obtain such an expres- sion of the opinion of the Council as would authorise the prevention of further progress in those portions of streets now under contract, where any alterations of the levels ...
