SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 9 January 1849

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. By the Hooghly and Thomas Lowry we have South Australian papers to the 30th, ult., but they contain nothing of interest to our readers. The following is the state of the markets : Adelaide Markets—Wheat (old), 4s 3d per bushel; ditto (new), 4s ; flour, £11 per ton at the mills; 4lb loaf, 6d; butter, 11d per lb; bacon, 9d ; beef, 2½ to 3½d ; mutton, 1½d to 3d per lb; lamb, 2s per quarter; potatoes, 10s per 100 lbs; green peas, 10d per peck; asparagus, 6d per bundle; cherries and strawberries, 1s 6d per lb ; loquats, 3d to 6d per dozen ; young goose- berries, 3d to 6d per quart; rhubarb stalks, 2s per bundle; cabbages, 1s 6d per dozen; cauli- flowers, 3d each. The South Australian Register in a long article upon the late " mandamus" case, in the Supreme Court of this district, thus winds up its opinion of the matter: After reading patiently the grounds of prosecution in the foregoing instance, we are not a little surprised at the mani- fest disposition displayed by th...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 9 January 1849

Domestic Intelligence. Binding to the Peace, the Recha- bites. — Considerable amusement was created at the Police Office, on Friday last, during the hearing of a case in   which a Mr. M'Diarmid sought to have Mr. Stoneham, a brother Rechabite, bound over to keep the peace. Mr. M'Diarmid, who is Secretary to one of the Rechabite Tents established in Mel- bourne, having made the usual affidavit in applying for a peace warrant, in which it   was stated that Mr. Stoneham had raised a heavy stick in a threatening manner, and declared his intention of sending de- ponents teeth down his throat, a long and highly amusing dialogue ensued between the litigants, as to their respec- tive merits as Rechabites, and the benefits they had conferred upon the Order by their exertions. Mr. Stoneham, in de- fence, said that he had certainly used the language attributed to him, but for the purpose of preventing complainant from striking him. He explained to the Bench the circum...

SUPPLEMENT TO The Argus. I am in the place where I am demanded of consclence to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak, impugn it whoso list."   TUESDAY, JANUARY 9, 1849. THE CHOLERA. In accordance with our promise of this morning, we present our readers with the very best information we can obtain, upon this frightful malady. We flatter our- selves, that a careful perusal of the fol- lowing remarks, collected from some of the highest authorities that have treated of this disease, may prove useful, and may tend rather to allay than excite anxiety. It may at first sight appear   advisable to avoid extended discussion regarding a complaint, calculated to act so strongly upon the mind ; but it is one thing to avoid a hasty and flippant ten-   dency to give extension to a report of such serious importance ; it is altogether another to willfully shut our eyes to the possible advance of so dire an enemy ; to neglect the thousand remedial me...

IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 9 January 1849

IRELAND. The Dublin Evening Post of Saturday contains an article on the insurrectionary proceedings, which, from its demi-official character, and the startling disclosures which it contains, is well deserving of attention. The article commences with the following description of the outbreak, and its objects :—   "Troops of banditti, organised by the   club in the counties of Kilkenny, Water- ford, and Tipperary, continue to keep the country round Carrick in a state of   excitement and alarm, by their mighty demonstrations and daily depredations.   We believe that the number of those     who take an earnest part in these pro- ceedings is very limited, but that they   swell their ranks by menacing the peace-   ful portion of the population with arson   and murder, if they refuse to turn out at the behest of the organised plunderers.   There is no doubt atta...

DOHENY, THE IRISH LEADER. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 9 January 1849

DOHENY, THE IRISH LEADER. The unenviable notoriety this ill- omened man has achieved for himself, has caused his name to be so much be- fore the world of late, that perhaps a   brief outline of his early life and career may not prove uninteresting to the British public.     Michael Duheny is the son of very humble, very poor, but very honest and industrious parents. They held a small farm on the townland of Dundrum, near Cashel, and laboured to "make the two   ends meet." At an early age Michael began to develope a strong predilection for study, and this studious turn was not more remarkable than was his outward man for its singularly ¡ll-favoured presence. Having no means or opportunity of acquiring a good, solid education, he had recourse to the library of the parish priest, and learned from that source all the in- formation it could give him. When he had attained the age of manhood he had a tolerably fair knowledge of Latin, and...

THE HOSPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 9 January 1849

THE HOSPITAL. The lapsed annual meeting of the   contributors to the Melbourne Hospital   was held in the Board-room of the In- stitution, in accordance with the Act of     Council, yesterday at one o'clock.   Edward Curr, Esq., M.C., having been called to the chair briefly explained the changes in the constitution of the Hospital, effected by the late Act of   Council, and stated that the present   meeting was held in pursuance of the   Act for the election of the officers of the Institution by subscribers of one pound   annually.   Before the elections were proceeded   with, some discussion arose relative to the position of the Medical Officers who were elected during the past year for a period of five years, but it appeared that   the Act of Council which, of course over- rides the regulations of the Hospital, directs an annua...

THE OBSERVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 9 January 1849

THE OBSERVER. The poets tell us that the swan sings   sweetly at her death. But, alas ! that elegant and pathetic practice is altoge-   ther monopolised by the noble bird.   We descend by but one step, and to her cousin-german, and this is the sort of death-cackle we are favoured with:—   "Not dead yet.— Although prematurely killed last week, we have breath enough left to expose the last shift to which the Argus is reduced on the subject of the rules of court, on which it has staked the credit of its cause. And yet we are wrong in speaking of the last shift, for there is not a corner left into which he can creep.—   Our contemporary, or rather William Kerr, is reduced to ' harping on the rules,' and what he calls the 'nick of time,' in which they were re-   pealed. On the use of these same impossible rules, he still insists with a perseverance, to which we can find no anology, except in the case of Shylock...

Original Poetry. PARODY, ON BEING ASKED TO STAND GODFATHER. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 9 January 1849

Original Poetry. PARODY,   ON BEING ASKED TO STAND GODFATIIER. I dreamt I was asked to become Godpapa To a little red pup in long clothes. With two dreadful blue eyes, like his dearest Mama, And a painful turn up to his nose. And in spite of myself, I was forced to comply And assist the sweet child to a name ; And I thought, as I don't like him much now, I'll try Just to love the dear babby the same—just the same—   Just to love the dear babby the same ! And I dreamt that I rushed in a desperate state, To old-——to ask his advice,   Who very soon sold me a small piece of plate, Which I bought, without asking the price. And little I dreamt from the old fellow's talk To pay up, to any such tune ; But, alas ! I found out for my spoon and my fork,   I should have to fork out like a spoon—like a spoon—   I should have to fork out like a spoon.   And I dreamt that at last, all my troubles were o'er, As regarded a...

THE QUARTER SESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 January 1849

THE QUARTER SESSIONS. A novel, and as it seems to us an illegal and highly dangerous innovation in the practice of the Court of Quarter   Sessions, was made during the sitting of the Court on the 1st instant. An ap- peal was being heard against a con- viction by the Melbourne Bench under the Masters and Servants Act, in which the appellants were some men who had been in the employment of Mr. Yuille, of Rockbank. The appeal was proceeded with in the ordinary course of practice until the whole of the legal objections to the conviction had been argued and over- ruled by the court, when the learned counsel for the plaintiff demanded that the respondents should open the case on the merits, and establish by oral evidence the facts which would support the con- viction in the court below. This course was demurred to as contrary to the practice, which has hitherto on proof of the conviction held it to be good, unless proof of its badness was given by the appellants, but the cour...
