Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 21 August 1846

DIED,   On the night of the 3rd of August, 1845, in the wreck of the emigrant ship Cataraqui, Margaret, wife of Mr. H. M. Campbell, late of the Royal Exchange Hotel, Melbourne, Port Phillip, and eldest daughter of Mr. Samuel Manderson, Ballyclan, near Crumlin ; and at the same time, Josias Campbell, her only son, in the 14th year of his age. Seldom has it been our duty to record the departure of a more amiable and excellent woman, or of a more inte- resting youth than her son. Mrs. Campbell will long be remembered in the neighbourhood where she lived, as one who faithfully performed the duties of her station, and manifested in her cha- racter the virtues of the sincere and unaffected Christian.           On the 15th of February last, at Galashiels, Scotland, Alexander Kinghorne, Esq., long well-known and respected as a colonist, and ac- tive magistrate in New South Wales, deeply re- gretted by his numerous...

THE CAPE OF GOOD HOPE WARFARE. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 21 August 1846

THE CAPE OP GOOD HOPE- WAR- FARE. The details of the predatory war -which is raging so fiercely at the Cape are re- ported so voluminously in the Cape jour- nals, that it is exceedingly difficult to furnish a comprehensive abstract, which will put our leaders in possession of the real state of affairs. Every petty aggres- sion of the Kaffirs, indeed, is narrated with so much of comment, that it is diffi- cult to arrive at the actual results. We have looked through the heavy files of papers that have reached us, in vain, for any general estimate of the losses of pro- perty and life in each district, nor can we trace any official account of the num- ber of slain on either side in the various engagements. The origin of the war appears to have been the naturally predatory disposition of the Kaffirs, impelled by want, and excited by the possessions of their more indus- trious and more civilised neighbours. Tlie South African in speaking of it says : ' The Kaffirs and the colony, after &a...

A PRIEST'S CURSE. CHARLES M'LAUGHLIN V. THE REV. LUKE WALSH, P.P. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 25 August 1846

A PRIEST'S CURSE. CHARLES MCLAUGHLIN V. TUE REV. LUKE ,. , , / WALSH, V.V. THIS case was tried at the Carrickfergus assizes, on Frida}', March 20, and excited a great deal of interest. The plaintiff is a miller, of the Roman Catholic petsua sion, but being a very intelligent and ex-, cellent man, he was in the habit of read- ing an Irish Bible to his poor neighbours who only spoke that language. The priest of the parish-Father Luke Walsh -conceived that this conduct deserved the se\erest_ punishment the Church of Rome can inflict, and accordingly, after calling on the plaintiff to desist .from his "evil practices" without effect, he ex- communicated him by " bell, book, and candle." The immediate consequences were that the poor man was insulted and abused by all with whom he carne hrcon tact ; others avoided him on the highway as if he were a demon ; and all the Ca- tholics who dealt at his mill left it. i Several witnesses were examined, who , proved the "cursing,"-the insults M'La...

NEW DIVISION OF PARTIES. (From the Neu) York Herald, Apiti 17.) THE great issues which have been cast in 'the political cauldron dining the past four years, bid fair to act like some che- mical agent, and precipitate to the bottom that which has heretofore piedominated. In 1814 a gieat mass of ihe men who, in 1810, suppoited Harrison, vol ed for Polk -«hile many who had stuck to Van Bui en to the last, indisposed to the Texas agitation, and too tim id foi bold move- ments, sided with the Consérvala e prin- ciple,' as exemulilied in its embodiment, Clay.

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 25 August 1846

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. SIR-There is one circumstance con- nected with the humane and philanthro- pic exertions of the people of Melbourne, that are at present being made to contri- bute towards the alleviation of the distress and misery, which have unfortunately resulted to the Irish peasantry, from the disease that has attacked anti destroyed their principal aliment which I would beg to bring under your notice, for the purpose of eliciting yuur opinion on the subject. Ihe circumstance that I allude to is that a share ot the fund to be raised, is i expressly denied those Irish Presbyterians ,who may be participators of the misery that prevails in Ireland, by the resolution passed at a meeting, said to be composed of professors of every creed, to remit the amount collected to the Roman Catholic and Episcopalian Archbishops of Dublin. How such a resolution can be reconciled with the appeal to the humanity of every creed, to come forward and join in the philanthropic wor...
