WEDNESDAY'S LAND SALE. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 14 August 1846
WEDNESDAY'S LAND SALE. We refer our readers, with mingled feel- ings of pain and pleasure, to the account of the Government Land Sale, which ap- pears in our columns of to-duy. .' " Taken as an indication (as it undoubt- edly is) of the returned prosperity of the Province, the result of the Land Sale is peculiarly gratifying, but in every other respect we regard the proceedings with feelings of dismay. Making every al- lowance for adventitious circumstances, we fear the result of Wednesday's Laud Sale gives unequivocal evidence that the disastrous land mania which so recently almost overwhelmed the Province, is " a snake scotched, not killed"-and we dread the fearful desolation which will infallibly ensue if Sir Charles Fitzroy should show any indication to imitate the extreme avidity of his predecessor. In any case it must do the serious mischief of stopping our complaints as to the ex- travagance of the upset price of land, for how can we offer even a murmur on the subject in the ...

He re- ceived lr-j early education in Plymouth, nnd during his residence there he oc- casionally attended a dissenting place of worship, and for some time had strong convictions of sin. Very early in life, he removed to London, and going one Sabbath into a dissenting chapel, lie ¡heard * a discourse " on the love of Christ/' which so powerfully affected his rriinth, that it drew him at once to the Saviour, of whom he had just heard. His heart was so filled with love and gra- titude, that he could scarce refrain from crying out; that hymn being given out after the sermon> " Salvation . O the joyful sound, Tis pleasure to our ears," he joined in singing with an overflowing heart,,' After this service, the Lo...

NORFOLK ISLAND. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 14 August 1846
NORFOLK ISLAND. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) Bv the Governor Phillip we have information from Norfolk Island to the 18th of July. We regret that the news is of a most unsatis- factory character, the whole maps ef prisoners collected in this sink of misery and crime appear- ing to be in a ¡>tatc of ferment, and ripe for open revolt. A few days before the Governor Phillip left, a daring outbreak occurred, of which the following, as far as we have oeen able to collect, appear to be the principal features : The prisoners had been accustomed to receive individual rations, and utensils in the shape of pots and pannikins were furnished them to cook with. Under new regulations lately issued, all the provisions were ordered to bo cooked at the general me=s-housc, and the Utensils were accordingly called in, and were taken from the criminals by the p ¡lice. These vi ere in the first instance given up, but in a day or two's time the prisoner» collected in a body, and made a general rus...

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. "In their dire creed gross falsehood reignssupreme." [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 14 August 1846
To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. "In their dire creed gross falsehood reigns &nbsp; supreme." Sir-It is truly lamentable to find in the en- lightened age in which we live, men of so con- temptible a character-so utterly void of princi- ple-so deficient of correct moral feeling, and despising the holy doctrines of true Christianity, that they will, for hire, write and publish the grossest falsehoods, either to defend a false creed, screen a thief, or advocate the cause of the mur- derer. I was led into these reflections upon pe- rusing a letter signed " E. K. Horn," which ap- peared in the Herald of the 4th instant. The ob- ject of the writer appears to be, first, to contra- dict a paragraph with the side heading '. Kil- more," that was published in the Argus of the 24th ultimo-and secondly, to make himself po- &nbsp; pular among the outrageous Papists that compose the majority of the population upon the estate for which he is agent.
