To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Melbourne, 17th August, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 18 August 1846
To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Melbourne, 17th August, 1848. Sir-Amongst all the abuses in the colony there is none of so disgraceful a nature as the management of the Post Office. In my own in- stance I have to complain in the course of two years, of the loss of no less than 23 letters, which have been duly posted in this office, and are not accounted for in England. Where lies the fault! On the letters leaving this Post Office, th ey ote inclosed in sealed boxes, and I am not tmara that one instance of these being opened on ship board has ever occurred, and as to the loss of letters in England, that is unknown, except io« few cases of letter stealing. What then is the conclusion that a rational mind must come tol- lt is that the letters are either mislaid from the neglect of the Post Office here, or are destroyed by them. The subject requires to be strictlj" looked to. I am, Sir, Your obedient servant, [Without being able to account for so nunj letters going astray, we cann...

His Excellency the Governor had issued a proclamation further prorogu- ing the Legislative Council until the 8th I September-then to meet for the despatch of business.

THE DESTITUTE IRISH. "We are gratified to find that the effort Avhich is being made for affording assist- ance to the destitute It'ish, has now as- sumed a character which will admit of men of all shades of opinion joining in the attempt at relieving the destitution of their fellow-creatures, for, talk as people may, a Roman Catholic meeting, con- vened by a Roman Catholic priest, in a Roman Catholic place of woiship, and collecting funds through the medium of such suspicious characters as Mr. Michael M'Namara, Mr. Pacificator General O'Shaughnessy, and honest John Davies, could aft'oid but poor assurance to Protes- tants of any denomination that the in- tended relief would reach the Ptotestaiit Irish. -%. « f There is not, we believe, a Protestant of any denomination, or of any country, in the province, who would not gladly contribute as his means would admit to the relief of the starving Irish, without waiting to inquire either as to creed or character, but there are «any who woul...
TO OUR READERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 18 August 1846
TO OUR READERS. The Argus appears to-day curtailed to some extent of its fair proportions, but not so diminished as regards its contents as the alteration in its appearance would lead the reader to believe. The cause of this alteration is the failure in the supply of paper of the requisite size, the whole stock in the Colony being completely ex- hausted. We shall, of course, resume our former size and shape the instant that circumstances will admit ; and, in the mean time, we shall endeavour, by com- pression and the use of smaller type, to prevent our readers from finding them- selves in any way the losers.

THE MELBOURNE RIOTS. The Rev. Mr. Geoghegan. the Roman Catholic clergyman, was on the ground tilmost imme- diately after the disturbance commenced, and assisted by one or two of the more respictublé members of his congregation, did all tims was in Ins power to allay the tumult, but finding his efforts unheeded, and the contest every moment becoming fiercer, the Rev. geulleman allowed himself to be persuaded to leave the field of battle, feeling, as'he has since said, that if a random shot should happen to come his way, the fury ol the rioters would not btop short ol luying Welbourne in ashes I -Melbourne Argus. Once on a time, the life of'a priest1 ivas valued at half a guinea, now it is esti- mated at the^ amount of a- flourishing borough.

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 18 August 1846
2o the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Sir,-There is a paragraph in the " Gazette" of the 22nd July, calling on the Editor of that journal to contradict a statement that he had made in his paper of the 15th July ; the nish of the writer is to make the lukewarm and inexperi- enced believe that there is no such thing as Ribbonism in this community. The worthy might huve spared his trouble, however, for it is well known that ILib bonism does exist in Melbourne, and that to a fearful extent ; the proof of this is that many of them left their places of abode 30 or 40 miles off, for the purpose of committing their foul deeds on the 13th July. This " Irish Alan" (as he calls himself,) also says that he can prove ou oath by himself, and three or four hun- dred others, that there is no such thing existing in Melbourne ; this I believe he could, and I will now tell you how he could accomplish this part of his story ; those three or four hundred would be sworn on a Protestant Bible, a book they...
