Select Poetry. &nbsp; &nbsp; ADDRESS TO THE FREEMASONS. (Delivered at their Festival, June 21st, 1848, in aid of the Funds of their Asylum, for the poor and aged Masons.) 'A rich man lived 'mid all that life could know Of Peace arid Plenty in our lot below ; &nbsp; His wealth was ready, and his hand was kind, Where friends might sue, or rigid duty bind ; He gave to kindred, and bestowed his aid &nbsp; &nbsp; Where Right could sanction the demand it &nbsp; made; But there it paused—his bosom never felt Compassion's impulse kindle, rise, and melt ; With Stoic ease he turned from every cause That had no claim except through Mercy's &nbsp; laws ; And coldly good, he measured out his span— An honest, moral, true, and prudent man. The Rich Man died, and cleansed from eoathly leaven, Upwards he sprung, on pinions stretched for heaven ; &nbsp; Onward he soared, and well nigh reached the gate Where Angel sentries ever watch and ...

MELBOURNE MARKETS. Thursday, Dec. 28. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 December 1848
MELBOURNE MARKETS. Thursday, Dec. 28. Grain.—The price of wheat may still be quoted at from 3s 9d to 4s per bushel. Nearly tbe entire of the barley and oat crops have been cut down and secured. The latter species of grain is &nbsp; spoken of, as being this season, the finest quality ever yet grown in the district, and the quantity produced such as will render us less dependent upon Van Diemen's Land for supplies, than we have hitherto been. Unfortunately for the wheat crop, the weather after a short interval of dryness and warmth, has again assumed a wintry aspect, and the farmers are now beginning to think, that it is doomed to be sacrificed to the strangest and most changeable season, ever experienced since cultivation was begun in the province. &nbsp; Flour.—First quality is selling at £10 10s ; seconds, at£9 10s per 20001bs. &nbsp; &nbsp; Hay.—This article is now selling at £2 2s per ton, but should the present weather continue, its value will soo...

The Argus. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak tbe truth, and therefore the truth I speak impugn it whoso list." FRIDAY, DECEMBER 29, 1848. THE RULES OF COURT. The Observer, with his dying breath, has a last fling on the subject of the repeal of the Rules of Court, and as another hand than " the creature's" is visible in the expiring effort, we will give it place. Our contemporary says — " The Argus still maintains an attempt at defence, and identifies itself, therefore, with the truth or falsehood of its original statement, in justification of which it cannot now plead ignorance. So long then as there is a possibility of any one being deceived, we feel bound to follow the deceiver into his last retreat, and do our best to unearth him. It is still main- tained that the rules were in full opera- tion, and that William Kerr would have been entitled to all the advantages of them, if they had not been repealed. Now, i...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. THE WOOL TRADE, &c. (From Bell's Messenger, August 28.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 December 1848
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. The Wool Trade, &c. (From Bell's Messenger, August 26.) Very large imports of wool took place in London last week, viz., 1320 bales from Hobart Town, 1850 from Sydney, 3062 from Port Phillip, 44 from Table. Bay, 320 from Algoa Bay, 40 from the Cape, 51 from Naples. and 443 from Taganrog. Privately, a steady business &nbsp; is doing in most kinds of wool, the rates of which are fairly supported. Liverpool.—Saturday last.—Although there has been little doing in foreign wool, prices are well supported ; and, should the weather take up, it will im- part more confidence and tend to greater activity in the trade. In Scotch there has been some inquiries for laid black faced and laid Cheviot, both of which are scarce at present. Imports for the week ending August 26—Foreign 2722, previously 48,020 ; total 50,742 bales. Scotch 381, previously 9339 ; total 9720 bales. Leeds.—A fair amount of business has been done at the warehouses, and the manufacturers cont...
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 December 1848
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Mr. Editor,—In my last I brought down my Sketch of Australian Agri- culture to 1845 ; I shall now endeavour to shadow out its probable progress to 1866—the- period at which rny prospective view of the wool trade terminates. Here, again, I shall, as nearly as practicable, assimilate the supposed advance of New South Wales, to its actual progress, as laid down in the official Government Returns for the period 1836-47. Upon referring to these documents, and my preceding com- munication, it appears that the extent of ground, sown in wheat, had increased, during the five years 1836-40, by 22,251 acres, or 43 per cent. During the next five, 1841-5, by 13,761 acres, or 18½ per cent. Here we must pause. The returns for 1846 show only an increase of 1016 acres, or 1.1 per cent above those for 1845, and the returns for 1847, compared with those of 1846, show an actual decrease of 7866 acres, equal to 9.7 per cent. These various results exhi...
