THE PORTER BANQUET. SPEECH OF MR. PORTER. Mr. Chairman, Vice-Chairmen, and Gentlemen-In rising to acknowledge the very flattering compliments paid me by your chairman, on this to me interesting and unexpected occasion, in testimony of the humble efforts made in support of your interests during my residence in the mothercountry. It is exceedingly gratify- ing to think that the honor conferred upon me emanates from a body of gen- tlemen (a great many of you my own personal friends,) connected with, and identified with every interest in the co- lony ; while it comes free and untainted by party spirit, and has its origin in no other feeling but that of a desire to be- nefit your adopted land. In being thus called upon to give expression to my sen- timents, I trust that you will bear with me while I take a review of what is pass- ing, more particularly at home, with oc- casional reference to what may be made subservient to to the colony, and without any desire that my suggestions or my o...

ARRIVAL OF THE NEW GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 11 August 1846
ARRIVAL OF THE NEW GOVERNOR. By our last night's express we have the gratifying intelligence of .the safe arrival in the Colony of his Excellency Sir 'Charles A. Fitzroy, the new Governor, of the Colony. The following account of his Excellency's arrival and installation is furnished us by our Sydney corres- pondent v Sydney, August 4th, 1846. It was seen by the signal hoisted at Fort Phillip, at day light on Sunday morning last, (August 2.) That a Ship had made her ap- pearance to the Southward, and as the " new Governor" was hourly expected, every one was on the gui vive to ascertain what vessel it was. The feeling of anxiety which prevailed was not lessened when about 10 o'clock a signa! was hoisted which proclaimed the approaching vessel to be a British Ship-of-War, every one then taking it for granted, that she must be the Carysfort ; but it was not till one o'clock that doubt and uncertainty were put an end to by the hoisting of the Union Jack over the British Ensign, with the ...

Domestic Intelligence THE PORTER BANQUET.- The public dinner given to John Porter, Esq , by his fel- low colonists, in token of their approbation of, and gratitude for his exertions on their behalf with the Home Government and public, took place at, the Prince of Wales Hotel on Friday even- ing, the Mayor presiding, Mr. Alderman Bell and Mr. Moor acting as Croupiers. The dinner, which was excellent and abundant, as were also the wines, was done ample justice to by the com- pany, one of the largest and most respectable ever congregated on any similar occasion in Port Phil- lip. Our limited space precludes the possibility of our giving a report of the dinner, which, so far as speechifying went, did not remarkably differ from other public banquets, but we give in our fourth page the speech of the evening, and what may be called the most effective of the subsidiary speeches, and we may add that the festivities were kept up until an advanced hour in the morn- ing, which, we opine, will b...
THE FRENCH IN TAHITI. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 14 August 1846
HIE FRENCH IN TAHITI. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) Wr. regret to Jearo that "the war" in Tahiti «till continues ; that the unfortunate natives, whose only fault is attachment to their Queen and their own simple but sufficient form of Governmen are subject to the continued attacks of a powerful nation, whose ostensible, purpose is said to be their protection. The Tahitians have displayed u bravery and determination which must earn for them the sympathy of all who are acquainted wih the circumstances under which they are fighting for their lives, their altars, and their homes. It does not appear that the French have yet obtained a single victory. After a three years occupation of the island, no Frenchman dare so without military protection, beyond the reach of tlieguns of the forts on the shore, or of the ships at anchor in the I ay. In the last attack made oy tile trench, their loss was very severe M Brea or Brier, the senior military officer, 'was* killed and the total killed w...
THE LEGISLATURE. (From the Sydney Morning Herald, Aug.8.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 14 August 1846
THE LEGISLATURE. (From the Sydney Morning Heruld, Aug.9.) We understand that the Legislative Council will Le pororogued to the 8th of September, then to meet for the despatch of business. It is probable that the session will not be a long one, as the vexed questions arising out of the occupation of Crown lands are likely to be postponed until next year, when the council will probably meet at an early period. Should the business of the session be closed before the end of October, His Excel- lency will then spend some time in vi°iting the various districts of the colony In determining the time at which the Council shall meet, we be- lieve His Excellency has been guided by the wish of the members to whom, or rather such of them as are resident in Sydney, the question was-of coune unofficially-submitted. A meeting of members was held yesterday, but as the proceed- ings were ¡strictly private, and in some degree confidential, we are only able to inform our reidera of the result, which is...
NEW GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 14 August 1846
NEW GOVERNOR. How comes it that we hear nothing of a public address of congratulation to his Excellency Sir Charles Augustus Fitzroy on his assumption of the reins of govern- ment 1 The Mayor, we observe, is pro- posing "to interject, in globo, as it were," an address " of felicitation" to his Excel- lency from the Town Council, but beyond thal, we see no indication of any public movement in the matter. As an act of courtesy, if nothing else, we would urge the immediate convention of a public meeting to address the Go- vernor on his accesión to the vic^-regal throne. His Excellency's reply would in all probability give us some informa- tion on the grand subject of separation, but whether or no the Governor ought to be addressed.
