To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 7 August 1846

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Sm-I beg you will excuse the liberty I take in addressing you on a subject which seems to cause a great deal of irritating correspondence in the public Press. I do cot wish to become a newspaper correspondent, for the sake of public writing, as my talents are not of such an order as would justify mein so doing; neither do I wish to create any ill feeling between any par tics, but a strict sense of fair flay induces me to draw your attention to two circumstances which, w TRUE, deserve all the publieitv that can possibly be given them; viz. : I hJJZ to bein an Inn in Melbourne last St. pE. Day, when two respectable looking men came in and at the same time remarked that it was a dis' graceful thing to allow the St. Patrick's Society to walk through the town and insult the Episco pahans as they had done that day, by one or two of the Society calling for three groans as the pro- cession passed St. James's Church, and which was responded to by some (n...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 7 August 1846

Domestic Intelligence. MUNICIPAL.—Sir Eardley Wilmot, the Lieutenant Governor of Van Diemen's Land, has again introduced in the Legislative Council, the Road and Lighting and Paving Bills, which were so contemptuously rejected by the Legisla- tive Council of Van Diemen's Land (nominee     though it was) in 1845. Whether his Excel- lency will be able to carry his measures now remains to be seen, but the mere fact of their re- introduction, without modification of any descrip- tion, sufliciently indicates Sir Eardley's belief of   the more pliable texture of the present Council.—   Both measures are being vigoiously opposed out of doors, and so far as we can judge with great   justice, for both, we believe are mere Taxing Bills, without a single alleviating circumstance to recommend them. This is certainly the character       of the Lighting or Paving (or bastard municipal) &amp...

A WORD IN SEASON. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 7 August 1846

A WORD IN SliASON. We fear that in the excitement conse- quent upon the late Popish riots, our fellow-colonists are losing sight of seve- ral matters in which it is requisite they should be up and stirring ; we feel it to be our duty, therefore, to put in " a word ' in season," by way of " a refresher." A public meeting, to petition for the alteration of the present infamous system of forwarding English mails to Port Phillip, is urgently required. The Go- vernment think, or |profess to think, (which amounts to the same thing,) that the Town Council petition, praying that the English mails for Port Phillip may not be sent by way of Sydney, is not a sufficient indication of the public opinion on the subject. A public meeting must, therefore, be held, and a petition adopted setting forth that the people of Port Phil- lip would rather dispense with having letters and newspapers sent past their own doors to Sydney, and returned after a delay of from three to six weeks, and (in the case o...

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 11 August 1846

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Sir-A correspondent whose epistle appears in your last number admits the legality of the pro- ceedings ot the Orangemen on the occasion of the late riots, but speaks of their exhibition of their colours as on a par, in point of wisdom, with the shaking of a red flag in the face of a mad bull. I fully admit the truthfulness of your corres- pondent's simile, for certainly there is very little more of civilization in the Popish rabble who assailed the Pastoral on the occasion referred to, than there is in a mad bull, but I cannot agree with him in thinking(as he obviously wishes should be done) that the Orangemen should hide their colours to pleasure the savages, who being now resident in a civilized community must, in roy opinion, be taught the habits of civilized life if they will not otherwise acquire them. The " Orange and Blue" are, it seems the present objects of their antipathy, but if tolerated and encouraged in this outbreak who knows what...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 11 August 1846

CAPE OP GOOD HOPE. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) The news nom this colony is painfully distressing, the papéis being so filled with accounts of the depredations of the Kaffirs, that they have no loom to brighten their gloomy history with even a paiagraph of more pleasant intelligence. The Kaffirs had been foi weeks within the colony, attacking every station, and although the most gallant resistance was made by the settlers on the fiontier, the cattle have been almost entnely dri\en off. It would appen that too gieat confi- dence had prevailed as to the defences on tlie frontier , the piesent outbieak having shown that the Kaffirs are a people whose hostile movements are not to be laughed at Emerging from their savage condi- tion by tneir intercourse with the Euio peans, they are plentifully provided with arms and ammunition, which then natuie urges them to use with obstinate courage and ferocious cruelty These things have not been taken into account by the Go- vernment, and blam...
