Select Poetry THE LOCK OF HAIR. THE DYING WIFE TO HER HUSBAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 January 1849
Select Poetry &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; THE LOCK OF HAIR. The dying wife to her husband. Take this lock, which once adorned The brow on which thou loved to gaze ; When affection for thee, warmed My young heart in brighter days. 'Twas the pledge which first I gave thee, When thy love response had met ; 'Tis the last that now I leave thee, Ere the sun of life be set. Take it, 'twill perchance remind thee Of her, whose love till death was thine ; Keep it, 'twill remain behind me, Still unchanged, by changing time: When the eyes which now behold thee, Cannot tell the love I bore, And the arms which now enfold thee, Shall clasp thee to this heart no more; &nbsp; And when Death his tribute claiming, Shall take from thee my mortal frame, This undying lock remaining, Its silken gloss will still retain. Clarence Linden.

BRIGHTON RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 12 January 1849
Domestic Intelligence. BRIGHTON RACES. This meeting came off on Wednesday, and fur- nished a very ¡ndifferent day's amusement, to a &nbsp; very large assemblage. A fair number of horse &nbsp; were entered for the different events, but the races were nearly all badly contested. The day was excessively hot, a northerly wind lending its in- fluence, and bring clouds of dust for the annoy- ance of all parties except the publicans, who had fine times of it, the result of which was shown in a ratber more than usual proportion of drunken- ness. Some falls and other accidents took place but we have heard of little of a serious cha- racter. The ground was pretty well kept, and the stewards active in administering to the amuse- ment of the public. The first race came off soon after 12, and consisted of THE BRIGHTON ST. LEGER. Of £15 added to a sweepstakes of three sove- reigns, weights 8st 10lbs, distance 1½ miles. Lyalls b. m. Lady of tbe Lake .... 1 Wrey's ch. f. Dancing Bet...

NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 16 January 1849
NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS. &nbsp; Orion and Investigator in our next. Fair Play should write direct to the Herald. It was too bad of Figgins to stick him in a coat of arms some ten or twelve years old. But the truth is, no doubt, that the good man ordered it, as fancying he was getting better value for his money by including the arms of Hanover, which every body but himself knows, were removed from the British arms, upon the accession of Victoria. Fair Play is too hard upon him. His Daily is a failure, his leaders old, vapid, and empty; his statistics unsound ; his paragraphs rubbish, his advertisements fictitious, the poor fellow has nothing but his type to stand upon, and our correspondent would deprive him even of that. "Hang it, man, do you mean to say the tiger &nbsp; has no tail at all." ?
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." TUESDAY, JANUARY 16, 1849. ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 16 January 1849
The Argus. I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak tbe truth, and therefore the truth I speak, impugn it whoso list." TUESDAY, JANUARY 16, 1849. ENGLISH NEWS. By the Duchess of Northumberland we have English intelligence to the 10th of October, the newspapers are, however, exceedingly barren of intelligence of any interest, and afford but scanty materials for a summary of news. The Irish state trials were in progress. Smith O'Brien had been tried and found guilty, but his relations having sued out a commission of lunacy against him, sentence was deferred. Lord John Russell was not called as a witness on the trial. The Queen and the royal family had returned from Scotland : it was her Ma- jesty's intention to have come back by sea, but in consequence of the boisterous state of weather, the intention was abandoned after the royal party was on board, and her Majesty proceeded to London by the railroad. During her Majesty's stay in Scotland she conferred the honour ...
MR. FAWKNER'S SUBSCRIPTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 16 January 1849
MR. FAWKNER'S SUBSCRIPTION. A sad amount of apathy has been dis- played in raising the amount to reimburse Mr. Fawkner in his law expenses in the late action. What is every body's busi- ness has been nobody's business, and an &nbsp; amount which should have been raised in a day, is still far from completed. The original plan of limiting the subscrip- tion to 5s., although good enough in its way, has been abandoned. There only wanted 400 parties at that rate, to make up the amount, and we know that there are 4000, who would gladly give it, but it is one thing to give, and altogether a a different one to come and give, and the consequence is that the amount is not yet forthcoming. A few influential men are beginning to exert themselves now, how- ever, to remove the deepest stain that could light upon Port Phillip, that of throwing one farthing of expense upon Mr. Fawkner, and we shall soon have to announce the whole amount as raised.

YESTERDAY'S PUBLIC MEETINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 16 January 1849
YESTERDAY'S PUBLIC MEET- INGS. The public meetings convened for yes- terday, were held pursuant to the notice but we are compelled from want of space to defer the publication of our report of the proceedings until the issue of a sup- plement we purpose bringing out in the course of to-day. The meeting seeking the extension of the electoral franchise to the squatters, terminated after a lengthy and very animated discussion in the adoption of an amendment, dissolving the meeting and directing a call of a public general meeting of all classes of the colonists for the purpose of considering whether the elective franchise should be granteed to the squatters, and on what terms. The meeting for the formation of an association to communicate with the Co- lonization Association in London, as proposed in a letter recently received by his Worship the Mayor, from Lord Nel- &nbsp; &nbsp; son, was immediately afterwards held, and the following gentlemen were appointed to obtain th...
THE JUDGE AND THE CITY COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 16 January 1849
THE JUDGE AND THE CITY COUNCIL. We give, in our fourth page, as full a re- port as our columns will admit, of the debate in the City Council, on Thursday last, on Mr. Councillor Moor's Quixotic attempt at rectifying the desperate &nbsp; blunder committed by Judge a'Beckett's &nbsp; friends, in forcing on the appeal to the &nbsp; Governor and Legislative Council, at &nbsp; Sydney, which terminated, as our readers are already aware, in the worthy Coun- cillor's being again defeated. The principal novelty in this debate was the production of the Full Report of &nbsp; the Harwich case, upon which, it will be remembered, Mr. Justice a'Beckett rested his judgment, in so far as it has &nbsp; been complained of, and which was not &nbsp; before forthcoming, the only copy of the &nbsp; Report, in Melbourne, being the one in the Judge's possession. So far, however from upholding Judge a'Beckett's deci- sion, this case affords the ...

A caveat had been lodged by the credit- ors, in support of which Mr. Chambers ap- peared, Mr. Williams was present on be- half of the insolvent. An objection was made by Mr. Williams against Mr. Cham- bers appear...
GOLD IN CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 16 January 1849
GOLD IN CALIFORNIA. We extract from the Sydney Morning nerald, the following particulars respect- ing the new gold discovery in California. The accounts are of that splendid charac- ter, that they remind us more of the treasures of Aladdin, than of anything approaching sober reality. We perceive al- ready that illness, and the utter lawlessness naturally attendant upon such discoveries, are beginning to scare people even from the pursuit of such easily attained wealth. As the inflated reports still existing will inevitably bring together nearly all the adventurers and desperadoes of the whole world, we shall soon find the favored (?) district become a Pandemonium, the con- dition of which, it will be perfectly fear- ful to contemplate. As a great deal of curiosity is felt in Sydney respecting the recent discoveries of gold in California, we have devoted several columns this morning to extracts from the Polynesian (Sandwich Islands newspaper) which gives an interesting account of the...

TOWN COUNCIL. Thursday, 11 th January. Present a full Council. MINUTES. The minutes of last meeting were read and confirmed ; minutes were also read of meetings of the Finance, Public Works, and Market Committees. THE BEACH. The Town Clerk read a letter from his Honor the Superintendent, in reply to &nbsp; the application of the Council for per- mission to clear away the forest lying between the inhabited portion of the City and the beach, in which his Honor apologised for not being able to reply at an earlier period, owing to the necessity for making reference to the Commissioner of Crown Lands for the County of Bourke, and stating that the forest in the locality referred to was being cleared by the labours of the licensed woodcut- ters, and of unauthorised persons. Alderman Kerr said his Honor neither refused nor complied with the applica- tion, and as it was one of the objects the Council had in view to put a stop to the clearing going on in order to preserve such of tbe ...
FLEMINGTON RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 16 January 1849
FLEMINGTON RACES. &nbsp; A good day's sport came off yesterday at the Melbourne race course, the principal race being for a silver cup, given by Mr. Dunbar of the Flemington Hotel. A good many persons were in attendance, and the racing commenced about one o'clock, with the following results. &nbsp; Silver Cup, valued at 15 sovereigns, for horses of all ages.

THE EQUITABLE DISTRIBUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 16 January 1849
THE EQUITABLE DISTRIBUTION. The following is the list of the tickets drawn for all shares disposed of in this district, up to No. 5500, which is the extent to which their publication in the Sydney Morning Herald has taken place. At foot appear the particulars from Mr. Lyons' list of all prizes that have fallen to ticket-holders in Port Phillip. Such holders as find the num- ber of their tickets appear in this list without any pleasing information below, may resign themselves to their fate, as not having been fortunate enough to have gained anything very well worth having. Mr. Lyons' list descends rather suddenly from £6000 to £14, so that anything beyond that will scarcely repay any one for a trip to Sydney.

Select Poetry THE SONG OF THE TURKEY. FROM PUNCH. &nbsp; &nbsp; The season of Christmas is over, The time of our danger is past; 'Tis the turn of the wild duck and plover, But the Turkey is safe, boys, at last. &nbsp; Then hobble and gobble, we 'll sing, boys, &nbsp; No longer we've reason to fear ; &nbsp; Who knows what a twelvemonth may &nbsp; bring, boys ! Let's trust to the chance of the year. The oyster, in vain, now may mock us, Its sauce we may proudly disdain ; No sausages vulgar shall shock us: We are free ! we are free from their chain ! Then hobble and gobble, we'll sing boys, &c. What matters to you and to me, boys, That one whom we treasured when young, With a ticket " Look here, six-and-three," boys, In a poulterer's window was hung. Then hobble and gobble, we'll sing boys, &c. Then mourn not for friends that are eaten, A drumstick for care and regret; Enough that, the future to sweeten, Our lives are not ...
