LATE ENGLISH NEWS. (From the Cornwall Chronicle.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 28 July 1846
LATE ENGLISH NEWS. (From the Cornwall Chronicle.) Sir Gordon Bremer was expected to embark on bonrd the Carysfort (26) to assume the Go- vernment (Civil Commandantship) of Nouh Australia. ' ' '-»^ It is believed that tis soon as the Corn Bill is passed and Í3 in operation, Lord Stanley will re- turn to the administration and succeed Lord Ellenborough at the Admiralty, who will go out, nt his own request, to St. Petersburgh ; he is said to have only taken the Admiralty us a warming pan to Lord Stanley. Parliament is not expected to sit over the month of June, and then to be dissolved, so that all may be over before harvest. The Duke of Wellington, it is rumoured, will certainly quit public life so soon as the Corn L»w 13ill lias passed ; Prince Albert will succeed him at the almost unanimous request of the army. He will certainly be a popular commandeciu chief, having no connexions to bias him. There is every probability that the squatting question will be decided by sending a commis...
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 28 July 1846
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. Our news from Van Diemen's Land ex- tends to the 16th instant. The Legislative Council was still sit- ting, and, as we anticipated, the suicidal Differential Duties'Actjliad become the law of the land. The Bastard Municipal Bill -proposing the appointment of Commis- sioners for lighting, paving, and cleans- ing the City of Hobart Town, which the former Council rejected, was again intro- duced, and will doubtless be passed, at least we expect as much from men taking office under such circumstances as the present now official members of the Legis- lative Council have done. A great variety of changes had taken place, consequent upon the appointment of Mr. Price, to the office of Civil Com- mandant of Norfolk Island. Thomas Mason, Esq., better known ¡as Mr. Muster Master Mason, was appointed Police Ma- gistrate at Hobart Town, being succeeded at New Norfolk by the Lieutenant Gover- nor's son, Augustus Hillier Eardtry Wilmot, Esq., who was succeeded in his office as Pr...

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Sir-Not the least amusing feature in the poll tical warfare occasioned by the late Orange Ban- quet, is the manner in which the Herald has been compelled to drum together the wise men of its literary Gotham. Great have been their endeavours to bolster up the labored he that the Orangemen were the ag- gressors-efforts rendered futile, alas, by the un- intentional candour which admitted that they " could not afford to enquire '" How very sig- nificant ' It is really much to be regretted that the Editor did not proceed to enlighten the public as to the precise " figure" at which ue " could af- ford" to tell the truth. Last Tuesday's Heiaid contained what was in- tended for a prodigious discharge from both their heavy artillery and small arms. Old Circular Head and "Tiny Ted," the Reporthur-resem- bling the old Dromedary with a Monkey perched on its back, which used to perambulate the streets of London.

THE ORANGE INSTITUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 28 July 1846
THE ORANGE INSTITUTION. It is a sad mistake in the organs of the 'Popish faction to imagine that any effort at blackening the Orange Institution will have the effect of blinding the Protestant inhabitants of this community to the ex- treme atrocity of the late Ribbon attempt at a general massacre, or that it will even have the effect of making men who are in the habit of thinking for themselves, and allowing other people to do the same, consider the outrage as in any degree ex- cusable. People ata distance may be led away by specious pretexts and plausible excuses, but on tne spot, and with the events occurring under their eyes, the shock is too rough a one not to startle both English and Scotch into the exercise of their own judgments-and that point attained, there can be but one result where, comparatively speaking, on one side all has been forbearance, aud on the other all outrage. In the whole of the many inquiries that reach us as to the nature and objects of an Institution, wh...
