THE DISTRICT ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 September 1848

THE DISTRICT ELECTION. Tuesday next is the day appointed for taking the poll at the District Election, and we do hope that the electors in this part of the province will arrange matters so as to be in town on that day to testify by their vote, whether they are willing to continue any longer under Sydney domination. Our advice to the electors is, of course, the Peers, and nothing but the Peers, but a word of advice as to the merits of the candidates may be of some service to the very few among our friends who hold that it is a wise policy to re- ceive as bread the stone which the Legis- lature has offered us under the represen- tation in a Sydney Legislature. There are in reality only four resi - dent candidates actually in the field, viz. —Messrs. McKinnon, Williamson, Dick- son, and the arch-traitor—Edward Curr. Of these we hope for the credit of the community that only Messrs. McKinnon and Williamson will be voted for. We would not be understood as placing the two latter candidate...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 September 1848

Original Corresopndence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—I observe by your last that your friend Councillor Smith has become wonderfully sensi-   tive, lest he should he disgraced by your presence at the Council board during the short space now allowed to his good self to occupy a niche there ; I doubt not Mr. Editor but in your case he has " caught a Tartar," and that he will have to pocket the affront ; but may I ask where was his sensitiveness when a certain Alderman had all his bills renewed, and obtained indulgence from his creditors, for good reasons I own, but no bet- ter than yours —and where again was his delicacy —what shut his mouth when another Alderman transferred all his property to trustees by deed, for the avowed purpose of dividing it amongst his bona fide creditors? and without any intention, designed or expressed, to pay his debts; and where was his friend Mr. Moor's conscience, when he drew the deed of transference, and never hinted at disqualificat...

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, SEPTEMBER 29, 1848. MATTERS MUNICIPAL. The Town Council was chiefly engaged   yesterday with the discussion of the pro- position for taking the opinion of the Standing Council of the Corporation as to the disqualification, or otherwise, of Mr. Councillor Kerr, alleged to be the consequence of the trust deed recently executed by that gentleman. The Coun- cil adjourned before the debate was brought to a close, but the feeling of the members was so far demonstrated as to shew a majority of eight to six in favour of taking the opinion as proposed, the votes being— For The Mayor Ald.

COUNTRY NEWS. [FROM OUR SEYMOUR COMIESPONDENT] [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 29 September 1848

COUNTRY NEWS. [ROM OUR SEYMOUR CORRESPONDENT.]   I have but little of what may be termed news to communicate, still I conceive it to be better to communicate that little than cause an hiatus in my correspondence. The Goulburn has been coquetting with us during the past week like a young beauty; the greatest charm, however, is the retiring-mood, bold advances meeting but a scurvy reception. All apprehensions from flood have passed away, and we now draw on our night caps with a calm   assurance that, on awaking in the morning, we shall not find ourselves being hurried headlong, and against our inclinations towards the Murray, by the impetuous torrent. The weather is bright, but cold, accompanied by heavy gales from the southward, which may be anticipated at this period of the vernal equinox. The fishing season has commenced ; cod and lobster sauce go hand in hand together ; that we are obliged to put up with lobster instead of the legitimate oyster sauce, is ...

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, OCTOBER 3, 1848. TO-DAY'S ELECTION. To-day the question is again to be brought to the test whether Port Phillip is or is not to be represented in the Le- gislative Council, for to-day the poll is to be taken at the different polling places throughout the province. If there was a possibility of determin- ing the question in accordance with the opinion ot the majority of the electors, we have no hesitation in saying that the issue would be the same as before, for we have no hesitation in declaring that "non -   election" is the creed of three-fourths of the electors of both City and District. There is not, however, so much unani- mity as regards the election of peers, and this combined with the fact that in the Melbourne district particularly, the resi- dences of the electors are so scattered and their home avocations so engros...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 3 October 1848

Domestic Intelligence. The Police.—Saturday last being the day on which Mr. Chief Constable Sugden's tenure of office expired, that functionary paraded the police force in the Market square with the view of resigning the command into the hands of his recently appointed successor, Mr. Bloomfield. The men were extremely perfect in the perfor- mance of the various evolutions, and exhibited a degree of discipline which elicited the admiration of a large crowd of persons who had assembled to witness Mr Sugden's last official act. Cricket Club.—On last Saturday the presiding magistrates at the police office, Mr. James Smith and Dr. Fletcher, granted the ex- tension of Mr J. C. Passmore's publican's license to the ground occupied by the Melbourne Cricket Club, on the same conditions as last summer.

THE ELECTION PARTY IN ITS VARIOUS STA'IES OF TOM-FOOLERY. LOOK ON THIS PICTURE. Geelong Advertiser,   22nd July. " The Electors of Geelong and Portland have been disfranchised by a Melbourne Mob. The most extraordinary part of the affair was, that Mr. Foster, was pro- posed and seconded, and then bullied by his friends, into resigning." " We have had an opportunity since the event of hearing the   opinions of respectable persons in Melbourne, and in 19 instances out of 20, the proceedings are looked upon with marked disapproval," " And we also know that several of the leaders of the emeute now bitterly repent the step they took." Again— " Some suppose the Legislative Council being incomplete, can- not proceed to business ; but this opinion ¡s un- founded." " It is our opinion, however, that the Go- vernor does not possess the power of issuing a new writ." Geelong Advertiser, July 29th. " A Tyrant Mob, we have learned is the worst of all Tyrants, for such a ...
