Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 January 1849

Domestic Intelligence. Serious Accident.—We regret to hear that a young girl, the daughter of a milk   man, residing near the Botanical Garden, met with an accident likely to prove most serious, from her clothes taking fire. No one being near   at the time, she ran to an adjoining swamp to extinguish them, but was terribly burnt before she succeeded in doing so. Dr Dennistoun was soon on the spot, and did all in his power to alleviate her sufferings, but from the extensive nature of the injury, the worst effects are   feared. Archdeacon Macartney and the Irish at Geelong.— The Roman Catholic popu- lation at Geelong are all in a state of ferment, at some rather harsh expressions made use of by the Archdeacon at the late Diocesan Meeting. The         offensive remarks amounted to a not very flatter- ing comparison between the Irish, and the abo- rigines of this country, and we must say that in t...

Original Poetry. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 January 1849

Original Poetry. Paupers of Britain, quick change your estate, .^ite hands with misfortune, at once emigrate To happy Australia where blessings abound, And your penny will instantly swell to a pound.   Come matron and maiden, come scholar and boor, You'll all find employment I'm certain and sure, For in this happy island the dullest can find The calling most meet for the powers of his mind ! Each biped that comes will be soon supplied here With rations and logdings and so much a year. Your veriest dunces will quickly find jobs If they have sufficient conceit in their nobs ; A nd though they know nothing of wethers or ewes, With us any blockhead can edit the news ! With us literati take out no degrees; We care not a rush for A M's or A B's. Our two greatest geniuses ne'er chewed greek roots ; Their juvenile studies were beastings and boots ! The former once handled the flowing milk pail ;   The latter sold Warren's best paste by retail ; Yet both are Esquire...

CORONER'S INQUEST. Thursday, January 25, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 January 1849

CORONER'S INQUEST.   Thursday, January 25, 1849.   An inquest was held this morning at the " Queen's Arms," Swanston-street, on view of   the body of James Ballingall, before W. B. Wil- mot, Esq., M.D., Coroner for the District, and the following jury :—Charles Laing, (foreman),   Mathew Neave, Richard Lovelock, John Gregory, Daniel O'Connell, William Wilkinson, Joseph Edwards, William M'Mahon, John Pmley, Archibald Aitken, Thomas Ryan, and Lachlan Patterson. Mr. James Ballingall deposed—Deceased was my son ; on Saturday afternoon, the 21st instant,     deceased left my house for the purpose of bathing,     having had my consent to do so, as his avocation   during the week days confined him to an office,   and I considered it conducive to his health to do so ; I did not see him again alive; on the follow-   ing evening information was brought to me by a m...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 26 January 1849

Domestic Intelligence. Revenge.—Mr. D. W. O'Niall, licensed victualler at the Springs, on the Mount Macedon Road, appeared at the Police   Office, on Tuesday last to bind one of his servants over to keep the peace. Mr.   O'Niall deposed that the defendant, a young man named John Harris, had threatened him frequently with personal injury, in consequence of some imaginary wrong under which he suffered, and that he generally concluded his threats with an avowal of his determination to take his master's life ; on the previous evening he declared that the time had arrived for taking his revenge, and that he would shed   the blood of Mr. O'Niall, although he was aware that such an act would injure him-   self and plunge his master's relatives into the deepest sorrow. The defendant, who had   been brought upon warrant, was ordered to find two sureties of £5 each, and enter into his own recognizance for £10, to keep the peace ...

CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 30 January 1849

CALIFORNIA. We are very glad to find -that the attempt to get up gold-hunting mania in this district, has entirely failed. The Thomas Lowory has been taken off the berth from want of support, and the ex- citement in favor of California is fast dying away. This says much for the common sense of the Port Phillip people, and contrasts very favourably with the Californian rage that is exhibited in Sydney, and has shown itself in Hobart Town and Launceston, and will no doubt, meet a response among the   mining interests of South Australia. We had some hopes of a few of our black sheep taking their departure for a region so peculiarly adapted to their pursuits, but our satisfaction at the rational course pursued by the honester portion of our working classes, serves to qualify any little regret we may have felt at the continued presence of the less desirable members of our community.

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 30, 1849. ENGLISH NEWS. We are in the receipt, via Hobart Town, of English intelligence to the 13th of October, but there is almost no additional intelligence, saving the passing upon Smith O'Brien, of the customary sen- tence upon traitors—hanging and quar- tering ; it was understood, however, that unless his brother's commission de lunatico inquirendo was successful he would be transported for life to the Cape of Good Hope. There is no other intelligence of any moment. The Earl of Carlisle is dead, and is succeeded by his son Lord Mor- peth. Sir James Duke had been elected Lord Mayor of London. Mr. Luke Hansard has been dismissed from his lucrative appointment of printer to the House of Commons, in consequence of his having made some strong personal reflections upon one of the members.

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 30 January 1849

Domestic Intelligence.   The Burns' Festival.—The annual commemmoration of the natal day of Scotia's   favourite Bard was held on Friday evening in the noble banquet room of the Protestant Hall, which   was elegantly fitted up for the occasion, the chandeliers being gaily decorated with festoons of flowers and evergreens, and the Chairman's seat canopied with a beautiful transparency of the fes- tive occasion when Willie brew'd a peck o' maut, An' Rab an' Allan cam to prie, painted, we believe, by Mr Opie, and certainly conferring credit on the pencil of the artist. At about half past seven o'clock a highly respectable company, numbering according to various esti- mates from 100 to 120 gentlemen, sat down to a sumptuous repast, furnished in the most approved style of restaurateurship by Mr Passmore, of the Shakspeare Hotel.

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 30 January 1849

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—The very unfair, the very false report that the Geelong Advertiser has given of the words used by the speakers on the liberal side of the question, demands from some portion of the public press, a chance of fair play for me and those   that spoke on my side of the question. Mr. S.   Duggan's and Mr M'Culla's speeches bear no resemblance to what they uttered ; they were made   to say just what it suited the parties who had convened the meeting, and call you this fair play? For myself, I was not only deprived of the most forcible parts of what I did say, but am actually reported to have uttered complete non-   sense; thus, "He would take the first twenty names on the list of squatters." The words I used were, " I will take the first twenty names that I find on my list of greedy squatters, where each man holds above 100,000 acres." Again,   the Advertiser says, or ...

SNAKE BITE. To the Editor of the Maitland Mercury[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 30 January 1849

SNAKE BITE. To the Editor of the Maitland Mercury.   Sir—Several remarks having been made on the mode of treatment of the bite of a snake, I am induced to lay before you the result of a case which came under my observation. On Wednesday last, about half-past one in the afternoon, a young man while thrashing in the barn trod on a large black snake, about six inches from its head ; the reptile immediately turned and seized him on the front of the left foot, inflicting thereon eight very legible punctures. Although within five minutes a ligature was applied, he experienced symptoms of giddiness and sickness ; feeling the limb painful he took the ligature off, and although it was immediately re-applied, the above symptoms were considerably increased, and continued at intervals until I saw him (within an hour after the injury.) Pulse 80, but little con- stitutional disturbance. Taking the in- teguments between the finger and thumb of my left hand, I removed the diseased port...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 30 January 1849

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Mr. Editor,—I have no doubt, but the results stated in my last may startle many of your readers—possibly they may say, that such an increase from Immigration is impossible—now in reply to this, I have simply to state that Emigration from Great Britain did actually increase from under 6,000 in 1824 to above 258,000 in 1847, or above 43 to 1 ! ! therefore, con- considering the state of Ireland, the failure of that valuable root, the potato, and the daily increasing pressure of the Poor Laws in England, I can by no means think it impossible that, under a liberal Government, and judicious ar- rangement, Emigration might some 15 years hence, bear a similar ratio to that of   1847, as that did to 1824; but to prevent all cavil, on this point, allow me Mr. Editor; before going further to sketch out the future prospects of this District, sup- posing the immigration to be restricted 10,000 per annum :— Births. Total. 1849 1850...

THE POTATO ROT. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 30 January 1849

THE POTATO ROT. A few weeks since, we ventured to call attention to the fact of the renewed failure of the Potato Crop, at home, and particularly in Ireland. In our last, we gave some later particulars, all tending to the mournful conviction that this ter- rible and mysterious disease had again attacked one of the most important crops to an extent which rendered another Irish famine altogether certain. We extract the following remarks from a leading English journal of a late date in proof of the serious aspect the potato had assumed:— The Secretary of the Poor-law Commission in Dublin issued, on the 9th of August last, a Cir- cular to the Inspector of Unions throughout Ireland, requesting them to forward to the Com- missioners " a concise statement of the present appearance of the potato crop in each electoral division, and of the other crops of food, stating whether the extent of the latter is considered to be as great, greater or less, than usual in their respective Unions." A sim...

ENGLISH NEWS. THE LATE POISONINGS IN ESSEX. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 30 January 1849

ENGLISH NEWS. THE LATE POISONINGS IN ESSEX. A searching investigation has been set on foot by the authorities, during the last few days, amongst the inhabitants of Thorp, Kirby, Ramsey, Wix, Mistley, Bradley, Great Oakley, and places ad- jacent, in consequence of suspicions which have been raised that the system of poison- ing which has resulted in the execution of Mrs. May, and the committal for trial of Mrs. Southgate, has been pursued to a frightful extent in these parishes, and that a far larger number of persons than was at first supposed have fallen victims to the diabolical practices, which have recently been brought to light. The Tendering Hundred, in which these horrible circumstances have occurred, comprises a large tract of country in the eastern division of Essex, bounded on the east by the German Ocean, on the north by the river Stour, on the west by the river Colne, and on the south by the   Mersey Island. It contains in all 30 parishes, with a population ...

THE PORT PHILLIP REVENUE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 30 January 1849

THE PORT PHILLIP REVENUE.   In pointing out the misrepresentations, and correcting the errors of a contem- porary upon the subject of the Revenue, we expressed a hope that the financial position of this district would be found more favourable than that of her older and most dishonest sister. The returns we publish in another column, and al- though comparing somewhat favourably with that of the Sydney district, we do not find any good grounds for very joyous congratulations, nlthough proba- bly our more sanguine, and mercurial friend of the Herald will find them every- thing that could be wished for. There is a striking similarity between the two sets of returns ; the increase or decrease upon the several items differing only in degree, and scarcely in any in- stance do we find an item looking unfavourably in one district, but it is the same in the other. The list of deficiencies, however, is much less here than in Sydney, and upon the entire revenue of the year we show ...

CAUSES OF CRIME. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 30 January 1849

CAUSES OF CRIME.   We copy from the Economist of the 7th October, the following remarks upon crime and its causes, from which some valuable suggestions may be drawn, both with respect to our penal code, and to the much discussed subject of education. Sta- tistical and authentic facts of this charac- ter, go far towards showing the shallow ness of the arguments of those who would withhold the solid advantages of educa- tion, for some fancied difficulties regard-   ing religious differences, and would allow an unimportant controversial question, or the splitting of a hair in point of doctrine, to interfere with the real interests of the mass of our rising generation. Report on the Northern Prisons. Causes of crime. It is the opinion of Mr. Frederick Hill, the inspector of prisons for the northern district, whose report has recently come into     our hands, that " there is a general de- crease of crime in the country," though he admit...

MINIMUM PRICE OF CROWN LANDS. We find in the Van Diemen's Land journals, the following important dis- patch from Earl Grey, on the subject of the minimum price of Crown Lands:—   PRICE OF WASTE LANDS IN THE AUSTRALIAN COLONIES. Downing-street, Aug 11, 1848.   Sir,—I have the honor to acknowledge your despatch, No 18 of the 18th January last, accom- panied by the report of a committee of council on the minimum price of land. I need not say that I shall always receive with respect any report emanating from a committee of the Legislative Council, and in any matter peculiar to New South Wales, the superior knowledge which they can command of circumstances on the spot would lend double weight to their authority. It must be remembered, however, that the present is not a question of purely local concern, and still less of recent experience. It affects the manner of disposing of unoccopied lands throughout the British colonies, and contemplates virtually a recurren...
