Select Poetry. THE MOTHER'S LAMENT FOR HER SOLDIER SON. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 December 1848
Select Poetry. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; THE MOTHER'S LAMENT FOR HER SOLDIER SON. BY CHARLES UTTING. Oh, my son ! my son ! my soldier son ! Thou wert my this world's all ! They tell me thou art lost to me, In victory thou didst fall ; With noble heart that never knew A fear, or thought to yield, My son ! my son ! my soldier son Died on the battle-field. My only child ! my darling boy ! My one lone hope in life ! Why didst thou leave thy mother's side &nbsp; To seek such scenes of strife ? How well I loved thee, none can tell Whose hearts the world hath steeled ; Oh God ! that I could raise thee up From that dread battle-field. What boots it to thy mother's love That conqu'ring thou didst fall; I dreamt not when I bore thee, Thou would'st hear the vulture's call ? The glory for a nation won To me no joy can yield, Since thy gore and glory shrouded corpse &nbsp; &nbsp; Lies on the battle-field. They taught me, wh...

Domestic Intelligence. Cricket.— The match between the Brighton and Tradesmen's Clubs, about the result of which so much interest had been evinced during the past week, came off on Tuesday morning on the play- ground of the latter club, at the rear of the gaol. There was a numerous attend- ance of spectators, and refreshments of a superior description were supplied by Mr. R. Dowling, of the Lord Nelson Inn. The game was well contested throughout, but the superior batting of Mr. Goldman was more than enough for the tradesmen, who were quite astonished at his performances, as he scored more in the one innings, than the entire of his opponents in either of their two innings. &nbsp; The batting of Mr. Tunks was particu- larly admired, and had he been at all supported, the game would have ended differently, or at all events with a far less signal defeat. It will be observed by the following particulars that the Brighton club carried off the palm of victory in one innings : Trades...

Domestic Intelligence. &nbsp; Sheep Wash. Captain Bagot, a &nbsp; member of the Legislative Council of South Australia, recently presented a pe- tition, in his place in Council, from a number of import merchants and resi- dents in Adelaide, praying—That, in future, the tobacco which is annually des- troyed by the Customs authorities, may be boiled for sheep wash, instead of being burned, as heretofore. It was stated, that the Collector of Customs did not object to the proposal. A clause was subse- quently introduced in the Customs Amendment Act, empowering owners of &nbsp; tobacco that had been two years in bond, to boil it down, for sheep wash, at their own expense, on payment of 1d. f ?lb, | &nbsp; duty. Justice.—It is reported, we believe on good authority, that the English Go- vernment has consented to repay the Emi- gration Fund, of South Australia, the £56,000 odd, filched from it by the Co- lonization Commissioners, in 1841, to pay Colonel Gawl...

Colonial Secretary's Office, Sydney, 8th Dec, 1848. CROWN LANDS BEYOND THE SETTLED DISTRICTS. CAUTION AGAINST UNAUTHORISED &nbsp; &nbsp; OCCUPATION. &nbsp; 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 regarde...
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." TUESDAY, JANUARY 2, 1849. THE MELBOURNE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 2 January 1849
The Argus. I am in a place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak, impugn it whoso list." TUESDAY, JANUARY 2, 1849. THE MELBOURNE PRESS. THE commencement of 1849 seems likely to prove an era of some moment, in the annals of the Port Phillip press. On the one hand we are summoned to attend the funeral of a noxious little publication, with which we have been bored for a few months of a Thursday evening, and are daily expecting a summons for a similar purpose, from a contemporary even more troublesome, from being just as stupid and a little more frequent. On the other hand we have the still more melancholy duty of waiting upon the birth of a new daily, and it is with but a blank heart, we look forward to the trebled evils, attend- ant upon a trebled issue of so mischievous a publication as the PORT PHILLIP HERALD. We were entire disbelievers in the daily publication of such a paper, till yesterday morning, when the first dose reached us, a...

Colonial Secretary's Office, Sydney, 12th December, 1848. CROWN LANDS BEYOND THE SETTLED DISTRICTS. RUNS OF INSOLVENTS. REFERRING to that portion of the Regula- tion of 1st January, 1848, headed "Transfer of Runs," in which it is stated that if a person who had a right to demand a Lease of a Run of Crown Lands in his occupa- tion, under the terms of the 11th section of Chapter II. of Her Majesty's Order in Council of 9th March, 1847, shall have died or become in- solvent without having exercised such right, the demand for the Lease will be received by the Government from his representative, or from any one coming forward on his representative's behalf. His Excellency the Governor deems it proper to caution the Assignees of Insolvent Estates that, in order to secure the rights of their constituents, they must in each case report without delay the sequestration of the Licensee's Estate, and prefer the necessary claims to the Leases of the Runs in his licensed occupation. 2.—Should the...

REPORT OF A CASE OF SNAKE BITE. WITH OBSERVATIONS ON THE TREATMENT IN SUCH INSTANCES. (From the Lancet.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 2 January 1849
REPORT OF A CASE OF SNAKE BITE WITH OBSERVATIONS ON THE TREAT- MENT IN SUCH INSTANCES. By W. BLAND, Esq. Surgeon, Sydney. (From the Lancet.) &nbsp; —, Esq., aged about twenty-five years, was bitten by a copper-coloured snake on the left leg, just below the calf, about one o'clock in the afternoon of December 14, 1848. It was with difficulty the animal was shaken from the limb. The part bitten was covered only with a cotton stocking. The pati- ent, immediately on extricating himself from the snake, put an extremely tight ligature around the limb—a few inches above the bite ; and a second ligature just below the knee. He then hastened home, which was a short dis- &nbsp; tance. &nbsp; I first saw him about an hour and a half after the accident, when he was suffering from pain in the region of the heart and a feeling of constriction about the chest—particularly the left side. He had at that time taken a full dose of laudanum, besides some brandy, with the hope of...
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 2 January 1849
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. MR. EDITOR,—-In my last, having esti- mated the probable extent of wheat land, in the entire Colony in 1865 at 160,000 acres, and of population at 413,000, this would allow 2.58 individuals to each &nbsp; statute acre—-whereas in 1845 the pro- portion was 2.07. In the former year, the quantity of wheat produced per head was 6.6 bushels t- in 1865, the amount would be 2,204,000 bushels, or per head of the then probable population, only 5.3 bushels—being a falling off equal to 1.3 bushel per head. Let us endeavour to ascertain the present actual consumption of wheat, per head, so as to enable us to come to more de- finite results. The usual allowance of flour to each male in the colony is 10 lbs per week, or 520 lbs per annum—let us allow say 1 lb per day or 7 per week, overhead for every man, woman, and chiid, this would give as the actual con- sumption for 1845, 66,086,384 lbs flour —now assuming that each bushel of wheat ...
Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 2 January 1849
Domestic Intelligence. &nbsp; Aged Depravity.—On Friday last, a very old man named Jeremiah &nbsp; M'Clusky, who must have seen seventy summers at least, was placed at the bar of the Police Office upon a charge of &nbsp; drunkenness. He had been frequently cautioned during the previous three or four days, to abstain from the poisonous liquor, as his great age and infirm state of body coupled with a too free indul- gence in his favourite beverage, would in all probability bring him to his grave in a few days; but the friendly advice proved of little avail, for on Thursday night, at a late hour, the old man was &nbsp; found by the police lying upon his back in Elizabeth-street apparently in a dying state; he was conveyed to the watch- &nbsp; house, and means employed successfully to revive him. M'Clusky trembled violently while at the bar, and in defence stated that he had been for some time in the service of Mr. Collyer, at the Goul- burn, ...
