COUNTRY NEWS. (FROM OUR WARRNAMBOOL CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 19 January 1849
COUNTRY NEWS. (FROM OUR WARRNAMBOOL CORRESPON- DENT.) The summer, to all appearance has fairly set in. Since the first day of the new year, the sun has shone with a steady heat, and the crops are fast ripen- ing; many farmers, however, have cut down a great portion of their crops to make hay, being fearful the wet weather would continue. At this season of tihe year Warrnambool is truly a lovely place to reside in, for when the heat of a hot summer's day is over, you can go to the sea side, and enjoy a refreshing bathe. Fish are very plentiful just now, crayfish especially are in abundance; one party caught upwards of a dozen of these delicacies, the other day, amongst the rocks by the sea-side. The manner in which they are caught is very simple. Tie a piece of raw meat or a large bone, to a piece of string, and the crayfish will cling to the bait until you can draw &nbsp; it up far enough to catch hold of, which however, requires to be very smartly done. We had some very exc...

Select Poetry LEICHHARDT. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 19 January 1849
Select Poetry LEICHHARDT. Pale broke the light in the sky, Announcing the advent of day, And the traveller look'd, with a sigh, &nbsp; On his comrades, who slumbering lay. " Up ! up !—It is grey in the cast, And the twittering birds in each gum Give a warning to man and to beast That the moment for marching has come." * * * &nbsp; Dawn shot the sun's burning rays, Hot mists in the valley there lay ; All thirsty, through sand and through blaze They wearily wended their way. Through brush, where the close woven vines, Like meshes, their struggles oppose : O'er cliffs, over mountains of pines, Through watchful and treacherous foes. * * * &nbsp; Night came, with darkness profound ; The thunder, in volleys broke forth ; Lightning was streaming around ; Torrents came pouring to earth. Bent round the wavering flame That lighted each shivering form,— Hungry, exhausted, and lame,— The travellers crouch'd to the storm. &nbsp; * * * &nbsp; Morning approa...
CORONER'S INQUEST. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 January 1849
CORONER'S INQUEST. Before W. B. Wilmot Esq., Coroner for the District. On Wednesday last an inquest was held at the Crown Hotel, upon view of the body of a bullock driver, named John Hodgson. It appeared from the depositions that deceased had been driving a team of bullocks from Mel- bourne to his master's farm, and that while silting in the dray it came in con- tact with a stump, which caused it to capsize ; before Hodgson could rise from the ground, the side of the dray struck him in the stomach and severely injured his groin, which rendered his immediate removal to the Melbourne Hospital necessary, where he died in a short time from the the effects of the injuries received. The jury returned a verdict of " Accidental Death."
FINANCIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 January 1849
FINANCIAL. The New South Wales " Government Gazette" of the16th instant, contains &nbsp; the official return of the Revenue of the Colony (exclusive of this Province) for the quarter and the year ending 31st December, 1848, from which we learn the astounding fact that there is a de- crease on the quarter, as comparedwith the corresponding period of the preceding year, of not less than £19,102 12s. 2d., and a decrease on the whole year of £7,517 14s 5d. ! ! That decrease too is not a casual one, nor occurring under &nbsp; one head, but is found to exist in nearly every department which is usually looked upon as indicative of the condi- tion of the people. No wonder the Sydney folks seek to keep a close grip upon Port Phillip and its flourishing vicenue. [revenue?]

BANK OF AUSTRALIA LOTTERY[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 January 1849
BANK OF AUSTRALIA LOTTERY. &nbsp; We have made the following summary of the properties divided by the so called equitable distribution, and considering the enormous preponderance of properties &nbsp; that must be considered utterly valueless, the conductors of the affair, did well in keeping the enumeration in the back- ground till just upon the eve of drawing.

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 January 1849
THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. &nbsp; The Governor's writ for the election of a successor for Mr. Williamson in the Legislative Council was expected by yesterday's mail, but we have not heard whether it has been received. The duty of the colonists is unchanged by what has taken place since the general election. If it was right and proper that the election of Mr. Williamson and his colleagues should be opposed, it is right and proper that the same course should be followed as to any successor that may be named. That the course then taken was right and proper ; that the act of election was a farce, and the notion of actual representation a mockery and delusion ; the result of the bona fide election has sufficiently established. It becomes the electors then to shew on this and every other opportunity that the shadow will not be taken for the sub- stance ; that representation, if had at all, must be had in reality, and not in name only. Any manifestation of apathy will be regarded as ...

District Police.—The members of &nbsp; the District Police, for the County of Bourke, contemplate presenting to Mr. District Chief Constable Brodie, a sple- did silver staff-head; as a small token of the esteem in which he is held by that body The staff-head, which is the &nbsp; &nbsp; insignia of Mr. Brodie's Office, consists of a Crown, beautifully interlaid with the three national emblems of rose, &nbsp; thistle, and sham ock, and bears an ap- propriate inscription, setting forth the successful endeavours of Mr. Brodie, on behalf of the men under his command, in procuring something like remunera- tion for their services.

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, JANUARY 23, 1849. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; CORONERS' INQUESTS. The proceedings of the Coroner's Court during the past week have been produc- tive of an incident involving matter of serious import to the community, and requiring the prompt attention of the Press. We allude to the occurrences in connexion with the inquest on the un- fortunate man Hodgson, who was killed by the overturning of a dray in the vicinity of the Pricce's Bridge, a few days since. Our reporter was not, as he ought to have been, present at the inquest, we are consequently forced to copy the details from the Daily News, and cannot answer, as we should desire, for the ac- curacy of the reparting, though we believe the main facts are correctly stated. On the first assembling of the inquest we are informed that— The circumstances atten...
MELBOURNE[?]POLICE. Monday, 22nd January, 1849. Before H. Moor, and E. Westby, Esq. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 January 1849
MELBOURNE POLICE. &nbsp; &nbsp; Monday, 22nd January, 1849. Before H. Moor, and E. Westby, Esq. Captain Charles Gibbs Featherbridge, master of the barque, Thomas Lowry, at present lying in Hobson's Bay, appeared on summons to answer an information filed against him by Mr. Llewellyn Acting Collector of Customs, in Melbourne, for making a false return of the cargo of the above vessel on her arrival here from London via Ade- laide, by omitting a case of tobacco weighing 154 lbs. Mr. Montgomery appeared for the prosecution, and Mr. J. M. Smith, (chief clerk in Mr. Duerdin's office, that gentleman being engaged at the insolvent court) for the defendant. Mr. Montgomery wished to introduce his case by making a few remarks concerning a statement put forth by a portion of the Press relative to this case. It had been asserted that the present was a harsh and uncalled for proceeding on the part of the Acting Collector, but he was of opinion, and their Worships would no doubt ag...
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 January 1849
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—I estimate the present population of Victoria at 40,000, and the number &nbsp; of acres under cultivation say at 30,000. In New South Wales in 1847, according to official documents, the number under cultivation was 164,784 to a population of 205,000. Now we estimated the in- crease of population in the latter up to 1st January, 1849, to be equal to 10,000 or, in all, we may state the cultivated land at 173,658 acres, which would al- low for this district say 32,000 acres: Mr. Westgarth estimated it at 30,000: so I presume my calculations cannot be far from the truth—-being, say, 1.25 &nbsp; acres to each individual ; but if this ap- proximates the fact, the produce of grain in the Middle District bears but little proportion to that in Australia Felix. The general average crop of wheat per acre, in New South Wales, for the 10 years 1837-46, being only 13.8 bushels, varying in different seasons from 9.7 to 16 bu...
Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 January 1849
Domestic Intelligence. Felony.—On Thursday night last a man named Kennedy was brought into Melbourne by District Constable Ball, charged with robbing a person who had fallen asleep on the road side near Kilmore. Kennedy had been arrested while making off with a bundle containing some clothes and money belonging to the sleeper, who had laid down to rest after the fatigue of a journey from Melbourne. On the case coming on at the Police &nbsp; Office next morning there was no prosecutor in &nbsp; attendance, and Councillor Condell who presided &nbsp; dismissed the prisoner, on the ground that there was no evidence to warrant a remand. The late Wool Stealing Case.—Mr. &nbsp; Hill, who had been charged by Mr. G. S. Brodie with lfloniously taking away a load of &nbsp; wool, and admitted to bail on his own recogni- &nbsp; zance, appeared yesterday morning at the Police Office, when it transpired that the affair, which &nbsp; &...
