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 whose list." FRIDAY, JANUARY 12, 1849. THE CHOLERA. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 January 1849
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." FRIDAY, JANUARY 12, 1849. THE CHOLERA. We are very happy to leam that no other case has occurred, exhibiting any symp- toms peculiar to this terrible disease. A good many cases of severe diarrhoea are found, but no more than is usual at this season, or than can be easily accounted for by the variable weather, and other ordinary causes. Let us hope, therefore, that the case we have alluded to, is a single isolated one, and that the malady we feared, is not likely to gain ground amongst us. With all our scandalous ne- glect of anything like sanitory measures, while at every street corner one meets with something offensive, while one cannot pass a butcher's shop without being half poisoned, and the whole city reeks with the most unsavory odours with which a town was ever yet afflicted, this is, indeed, an escape, and one that we had no right to calc...

Superintendent's Office, Melbourne, January, 8, 1849. DENOMINATIONAL SCHOOLS. HIS Excellency the Governor directs the publication of a letter from the Board for superintending the Deno- minational Schools in the Port Phillip District, with the statement alluded to therein, of the proposed distribution of the sum voted by the Legislative Coun- cil for their support during the year 1849, and General Regulations for their conduct, which have been approved of by His Excellency.

NEW POST OFFICES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 January 1849
NEW POST OFFICES. HIS Honor the Superintendent having been pleased to approve of the establishment of Post Offices at the un- dermentioned places, notice is hereby given accordingly, viz :— At Bertram's Inn, on the Campaspie River ; William Bertram, to be post- master. &nbsp; &nbsp; At Monro's Inn, beyond the Glenelg, John Monro, to be postmaster. At Four Posts Inn, on the Wimmera River, John Gleeson, to be postmaster. At Lake Timboon, Joseph Scott, to be postmaster. At Swan Hill, at the junction of the Lod- don and the Murray Rivers, John M'Crae, to be postmaster. At Warrnambool, in Lady Bay, near Port Fairy, Joseph Coulstock, to be postmaster. And the better to guide postmasters in the distribution of letters and newspapers, and so the more correctly to meet public convenience, parties wishing to receive communications through either of these offices, are advised to caution their cor- respondents to address their letters to the office desired, distinctly by its nam...
PUBLIC MEETINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 January 1849
PUBLIC MEETINGS. We perceive that two public meetings are convened by his Worship the Mayor, on requisition to that effect, for Monday next, the first being one of licensed occu- pants of Crown lands and tenant farmers, for the purpose of petitioning for the ex- tension of the elective franchise to those classes of colonists—and the second—of the colonists generally, for the purpose of organizing a society to promote emi- gration, in connexion with the Coloniza- tion Association in England. As regards the objects of the first meeting in so far as the tenant farmer's right is concerned, we are satisfied there is not a dissentient voice in the commu- nity. The same unanimity does not, however, exist with regard to the second object sought—the extension of the fran- chise to the squatters, for strong objec- tions are urged against entrusting such a privilege at all to mere tenants of the Crown, the great bulk of whom are in little better position, than tenants at will. The late Act of ...
PETTY SESSIONS. Saturday, January 6, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 January 1849
PETTY SESSIONS. &nbsp; Saturday, January 6, 1849. &nbsp; A Court of Petty Sessions was held at the Police Office this morning. The only Magistrates on the Bench were Dr. Fletcher and Mr. J. Smith. SLAUGHTERING LICENSES. The following persons obtained a re- newal of their slaughtering licenses :— Simeon Male, John Stracker, and Archibald M'Dougall. Applications were filed for renewals by Messrs. Stevens, Grimes and Dickens, but as the applicants were not in at- tendance, their application were not taken into consideration. BRIGHTON RACES. Mr. Thomas Ryan, of the "London Inn," and Mr. William Ryan, of the " Daniel O'Connell Inn," obtained per- mission to sell spirits on the Brighton Race Course subject to the same re- strictions enforced at the Melbourne Races. A similar application was made by Mr. Keys, of the " Little Brighton Hotel," but their Worships refused to entertain it. DISTRICT POLICE.

THE PRINCE'S BRIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 January 1849
THE PRINCE'S BRIDGE. On Tuesday evening the works in pro- gress at the Prince's Bridge were discon- tinued, and the whole of the hands turned off, the money voted by the Legislative Council for carrying on the work, being expended, and the Governor refusing to sanction any further outlay of the public money, without the authority of the Le- gislative Council. This is a most untoward state of things, for the bridge, but for this stoppage, would have been completed, and open for the purposes of public traffic, long before another Appropriation Act can become law ; but we must acknowledge it is a perfectly just punishment for the peddling and dishonest policy of Mr. La Trobe, in keeping the Legislative Council ignorant of the probable eventual cost of the struc- ture. We are exceedingly loth to urge a de- parture from the safe constitutional rule, which prohibits the expenditure of the public money, without the sanction of the Legislature, but if ever there was a case in which such a d...
THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 January 1849
THE PRESS. We beg to call the attention of our readers to the following remarks from the Sydney Morning Herald with regard to the state of the Press of that city. We would recommend the careful perusal of the extract, and that on the eve of a struggle among three daily papers in this district, which it is preposterous to expect can support them all, each reader should quietly settle in his own mind, which he can least, and which he can best, afford to part with. The Sydney Press.—On the first day of last year, in a paragraph with this heading, we (Sydney Morning Herald) made the following observation : -— We believe that the new year will commence without an addition to the colonial press ; but we think it probable that there may be a decrease in the num- ber of papers before the year expires." Our readers are aware that this remark has been fully borne out. Three papers of established character have ceased to exist. The Australian was discontinued some months since, and the Sydney ...
Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 January 1849
Domestic Intelligence. Uttering a forged Cheque.—A woman named Catherine Briley, ap- peared at the police office, on Saturday last,charged with uttering a forged cheque for £ 18 9s. at the Union Bank at 10 o'clock the same morning. Mr. O. H. &nbsp; Gillis, clerk in the Bank, proved that the signature of " David Peters" attached to the cheque was a forgery, and that the prisoner had presented it in the usual way for payment ; on being told that it was a forgery, and she was respon- sible for presenting it, the woman said she did not want to present it, which was supposed to be an assumed simpli- city in order to get out of the bank ; a constable, however, was sent for, and she was given into custody. The prisoner stated in defence that she received the cheque on the previous night from a bushman who slept at her house, and to whom she had advanced £8 upon it ; she offered to make affidavit jointly with her husband to the truth of her statement, and render every assistance to ...
DISTRIBUTION OF PROPERTY BELONGING TO THE BANK OF AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 January 1849
DISTRIBUTION OP PROPERTY BELONGING TO THE BANK OF AUSTRALIA. We subjoin a list of the fortunate tickets in the above distribution by lottery, the numbers and description of properties are taken from the list lately published by &nbsp; Mr. Samuel Lyons, of Sydney. We present the list as we know that many shares[?] are held in this district, and much interest is therefore felt; but we cannot suffi- ciently deprecate tbe principle of this division. If not altogether illegal, it should be so, as directly conducive to that gambling spirit which has been pointed out, and denounced years ago, and of which, we have far too much, without any increase by such means as these. We shall next have the same plan of getting extravagant prices for property here, and may evil betide that man, say we, who first attempts it! DESCRIPTION OF PROPERTY. &nbsp; 1 The Underbank Estate Buildings, Cattle and Horses. 2 The Cottage of Content, and other Properties...... 3 The Normal Institution, ...
DENOMINATIONAL EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 January 1849
DENOMINATIONAL EDUCATION. &nbsp; We publish in to-day's impression the report and rules of the Denominational School Board, as approved by his Excel- lency the Governor, and the plan of dis- tribution of the sum voted by the Legis- lative Council for the support of Denomi- national Education during the present year. The report and regulations meet with our perfect concurrence; they are judici- ous and as liberal as the nature of the Denominational system of education will admit, but the plan of distribution of the funds voted for the support of Denomi- national Schools during the current year seems to us most outrageously unjust. The Board seem to have altogether overlooked the fact that there are in the province many Denominational Schools for which Government aid on the iniquitous terms of the former mode of payment was not received, and without ceremony, without the slightest notice to the parties affected, and, as it seems from their own report of their instructions, wit...

OUR REPRESENTATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 January 1849
OUR REPRESENTATIVES. If anything were required to prove the soundness of the arguments of those who are unwilling that the farce of Port Phillip representation, in the Sydney Legislative Council should any longer be kept up ; if anything could more tho- roughly burlesque the proceedings of the advocates of bona fide election ; we would refer, with a modest triumph, to the utter disbanding of the small army of legislators, about to invade the country of the enemy. Dr. Palmer has been from the begin- ning a member "in commendam," never intending from the very first to proceed to Sydney. Mr. Williamson has re- signed his seat, and will soon be on his way to England. Mr. Curr, it was believed never meant to take his seat, and although it is utterly impossible to predict what may be the course finally adopted by this somewhat wayward and erratic gentleman, we conceive that the very last thing he is likely to do, is to take to the steamer, and much-talked of carpet-bag. We are, therefore,...
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 January 1849
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. &nbsp; Mr. Editor,—I now proceed to es- timate the future probable value of the commerce of New South Wales to the Mother country under the two systems, the one shadowed out in my 6th letter, the other in my last. The simplest, and in my opinion, the best mode of enforc- ing the propriety of the one, over the other, is to consider, in the first place, the relief to be derived by Great Britain in the form of emigration, under the two systems—and secondly, the probable ex- tent of trade to the colony, as influenced by the population accumulated in Aus- tralia. By the system now acted on, the en- tire population of New South Wales in 1865, we have estimated at 412,000, of which say, from the present date, we may suppose emigration to contribute 150,000 or per annum from 8 to 9000—by the more liberal, or what I would beg to term Lord Grey's plan, during the same period, the increase by immigration would be 900,000—exactly as s...
