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, 1846. Sir - The return of Mr. Smythe from the Cape Otway District bringing the account of the mur- der of one of his party by the Aborigines, affords another opportunity for me to call your attention &nbsp; &nbsp; to the present state of the Police in this District. About five weeks have elapsed since this murder took place and after Mr. Smythe's remaining in town for about a week, Mr. Dana has been able to muster 15 native troopers, and proceeded to the scene or murder. Is this at all consistent with the boast which was made a short time back that the native police mustered 50 strong, and were immediately available for any duty which might be required of them? So far from that being the fact, I am informed that at the present time there is not one left at the barracks, and what has become of the other thirty-five, Mr. Daaa or some of his friends, will perhaps be good enough to explain. But independently o...

STEAM COMMUNICATION WITH AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEA- LAND. (From the Colonial Cuv.clte, 18(/i April,) A MEETING was held yesterday, at the London Tavern, at twelve o'clock, to hear the statement of Lieutenant Waghorn, respecting the advantages of the overland communication willi India, and thence, by that toute to Australia and New Zea- land. Shortly after the hour specified Mr. Waghorn began by observing that twenty-live yeais of his life had been diligently employed in effecting steam communication with India. At present a great part of the object was effected. He had, therefoie, confined himself to the latter part of the louie, and he pioposed to go by Singapore to Australia. The distance between these points was 4,450 miles, and the way which he advocated was from Singapore to a port in Java, thence to Poit Essington, in Batavia, thence to Wednesday Islands, in Aus- tralia, and thence to Port Jackson ; thus dividing these &lt;J,'150 miles into four stages. He had on Thursday ...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 18 August 1846
Domestic Intelligence. Transfer of Runs.- The Geelong Advertiser, in the course of some remarks on the late trial in the Supreme Court, Beauchamp v. Mitchell, expresses some surprise at the Mel- bourne newspapers not attaching any importance to the trial. The only feature in the case which could have given it any importance beyond or- dinary, was the question as to the legality or otherwise of sales of transfers of runs, but as that point was not raised, the trial involved no feature of interest greater than any other action for non fulfilment of agreement. STONE FOR STEAM FURNACES,- A stone most admirably adapted for this purpose has been discovered on the estate of Mr. H, Clements, J.P., at Summer Hill, on the Campbell River, distant about twenty-four miles from Bathurst. It is of the description known by builders in Eng- land as the Soup Stone, and has the peculiar ad- vantage of being convened into any shape or size required by the use of the saw, and has the fur- ther property ...

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Sir,--The elephant draper, in a rig- marole letter he lately published in the Herald, quoted a paragraph from a speech of that patriotic irishman, Mr. Grattan, condemning the principles of Orangeism ; allow me, sir, to quote another from the same celebrated orator, condemning ano- ther class of persons, who are equally as obnoxious in Ireland, and are as often passed off by midnight legislation--I mean Tithe-Proctors. Mr. Grattan said : " But the Tithe-Proctor was of another species and another stamp ; he extended beyond himself the infamy of his galling and griping character; the church suf- fered from the officious ministry of these sordid harpies. The Tithe-Proctor can- not help being a Tithe-Proctor, he only follows his nature when he grinds." &nbsp; If Mr. Grattan's views are to form the rule of faith among Irishmen in this pro- vince, the Tithe-Proctoring breed will receive as little favour as the Orange- men. &nbsp; &a...

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Si«,-Having this morning seen in the Port Phillip Herald a letter on ¡the subject, of the un- fortunate Ann M'Pherson, who is stated to be now living with 'the ' natives in Gipps' Land, I beg to lay before you some information I received on Sunday last from a native called Yal Yal. He states that about three or four months ago he was with a party of the Native Police, under the command of Mr. Walshe, in Gipp3 Land, and there received information from a boy belonging to the Gipps Land tribe that he had seen a white woman living with the Gipps Land tribe. It seems thatshe had lived for several years withoneof the blacks, but that he is now dead, leaving her with three children now living and one dead, and that she is siuce living with another man, Yaj Yal speaks of having seen the wreck of a »hip on the long beach, which may be the Britannia, as that is the vessel in which Ann M'Pherson em- barked. An attempt waa made by the party under Mr, Walshe...

MELBOURNE FACTIONS. (From the Launceston Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 21 August 1846
MELBOURNE FACTIONS. (From the Launceston Advertiser.} The outbreak of party animosity at Melbourne, displays a degree of infatuation that might have been thought impossible had it not occurred. That raen who have travelled so far, and cliuno-cd ' so entirely their relation to each other, should preserve a temper so brutal, must be admitted in proof of uncommon native ferocity. 'We have been accustomed to ascribe the factions of Ireland to the injustice of the government, to the distrust and insolence of a dominant party, and the envy and resentment of their rivals; but since those causes are here inoperative, we are bound to be- lieve that in some neu a love of violence and blood is inherent, that the natural sensibilities are deteriorated, and that habitual hatred lias debused the understanding and corrupted the heart. We have reason to apprehend that if not instantly repressed by the influence of public morality and legal coercion, we shall seo common in these colonies, the deplor...

LATEST FROM SYDNEY. (by our- last night's express.) 1 Sydney, August'14, 1846. Every thing is very dull here, and will doubtless îeiruùu so until the meeting of Council. A Bishop, it is said, is about to be ap- pointed for Melbourne, and the piopriety of such an appointment will, I am in foimed, become matter of discussion at a meeting of the Church of England Lay Association, which is to take place this evening. Amongst the on dits of the day the only maller of public interest is the re- signation, by J.
