Select Poetry CHARADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 January 1849

Select Poetry CHARADE. Mr. Fitz Montague lives in May Fair, And people declare His things are so rare, They cannot conceive how the deuce they got there,   His pockets were always considered so bare. But there they all are, there's no doubt about that, From the or molu lamp to the white Llama mat. There are porcelain vases, and wonderful clocks, And Pompeii bronzes, and old Roman crocks;   And " warranted" paintings, by every old master, AndTowers of Pisa in white alabaster, And carvings, and closets, and escritoires old, And china from Sevres, all flowers and gold, And glasses from Venice, that flew into bits, And frightened the poieoner* out of their wits, By shewing the presence of araenie grits : (So sorne folks receive it, But I don't believe it, Nor you, as I hope, if you're still in your wits.) Indeed his whole house may be properly stated To be essence of Wardour-street much concen- trated. How did he get all his wonderful things ? Silk, velvet dres...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 January 1849

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus.   Mr. Editor,—In my last I pointed out the present actual production of wheat in this District, compared with the demand, but as those opposed to my views may as- sert that I am taking a one sided view of the question, only applicable to the wants   of the day, I must here briefly sketch out     the future prospects of Australia Felix,   viewing it as an agricultural as well as pastoral country, keeping each pursuit in its proper relative position, and thus firmly supporting the true interests of the colony. On referring to my communica- tion No. 4, of date 15th December, it will be found that I there tsated that in all probability, in the short course of five years, the amount of wool produced in Australia would exceed the entire demand at home—and that Victoria last year pro- duced more than the Middle District, consequently, that our golden fleece might expect a c...

THE POTATO ROT. (From the Morning Chronicle, October 3, 1848.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 January 1849

THE POTATO ROT. (From the Morning Chronicle, October 3, 1848.) Mr. W. J. Hamilton, writing from Erris, says :—" The appearance of the crop is precisely the same as I remember   it this time two years. In Belmullet and Binghamstown electoral divisions the smell of decomposed vegetable matter is very offensive. I perceived the same smell slightly in three electoral divisions which I visited to-day." Mr. K. Ha- milton writes from the Ballina union— " I regret having to acquaint you, for the information of the Commissioners, that within the last ten days the blight has spread over nearly every potato field in these two electoral divisions, few of which exhibit the slightest appearance of green ; during the same period the disease has appeared to a considerable extent among the tubers, so much so that I have serious apprehensions the crop will be an entire failure. The corn crop looks well but there is a very small extent of it, as compared with former years." Dr. Dempster, ...

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." FRIDAY, JANUARY 26, 1849. THE REVENUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 January 1849

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." FRIDAY, JANUARY 26, 1849. THE REVENUE. We find ourselves at issue with the youngest of our daily contemporaries upon the question whether the abstract of the Revenue of the Colony should be a subject of condolence or congratu- lation. Our experience of the sound- ness of the Herald's views upon such subjects, prevents our feeling much sur- prise upon the occasion, and the mere fact of finding ourselves opposed by that jour- nal, lends additional conviction (which alas ! we needed not) to the accuracy of our first impressions. The Revenue accounts for the year, in contradistinction to those of the quar- ter, are undoubtedly the more favour- able of the two, but we need not raise our shouts of gratulation to an undue pitch when we find a deficiency even here, of £7517 14s. 5d., as compared with the total Revenue of 1847. True, that th...

MELBOURNE MARKETS. January 25, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 January 1849

MELBOURNE MARKETS. January 25, 1849.   Grain—None of the new wheat has yet been sold. The old may be quoted at 3s 6d per bushel. The harvest is almost over in the neighbourhood of the city, and some idea can therefore be formed of its excellence. It is the opinion of parties the most competent to judge that the present is one- third more than an average harvest. The short-   ness of the ears which was much dreaded some time since, is now found to be confined to the crops grown on low-lying and wet ground. Such has been the encreased extent of cultivation this year, that it is calculated that there will be more than sufficient bread stuff for the consumption of our population, notwithstanding the enormous addition which it has received of late, and may be expected to receive through immigration. Oats are selling at 3s generally, but superior quality for seed fetch 3s 6d per bushel. Flour—First quality £10 ; seconds £9 per 2000lbis Hay £2 10s per ton. The mar...
