SYDNEY INTELLIGENCE. COMMERCIAL BANKING COMPANY. (From the Sydney Morning Herald) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 30 January 1849
SYDNEY INTELLIGENCE. COMMERCIAL BANKING COMPANY. ( From the Sydney Morning Herald) The first general meeting of the share- holders of the (New) Commercial Bank, was held on Tuesday, 16th January, John Lamb, Esq , M.C., in the chair. The following report from the directors was read by the Chairman :— " At the first general meeting of the shareholders of the Commercial Bank, the Directors have much pleasure in sub- mitting a report which they doubt not will be deemed satisfactory, especially when it is considered that during the period embraced by the report, an ex- tremely low price of wool, and other un- fortunate circumstances, have injuriously affected all classes of the community, and caused commercial transactions to be greatly restricted. £ s. d. By the annexed statements it is shown, that the gross profits for the past half-year are.... 6,542 14 0 From which deducting salaries and other ordinary expenses, amounting to... 1,677 11 1 There remains a net profit of. . . £4,965 2 1...
THE SQUATTERS AND THE ELECTIVE FRANCHISE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 30 January 1849
&nbsp; THE SQUATTERS AND THE ELEC- TIVE FRANCHISE. We learn from our Geelong contempo- raries that the Squatters have found in the " Commercial Capital" the indul- gence which was denied them at Mel- bourne, and they are consequently now at liberty to petition for, as a right, the privilege of representation on the ground of personal property. We are sorry to find our squatting friends so blind to their own interests. They have altogether mistaken their position. Representation does not be- long to them of right either as tenants of the Crown, or as possessing personal property. Their strong hold in seeking the indulgence was the importance of &nbsp; their position in the community, and the propriety and necessity of adapting the constitution to the peculiar circumstances of the colony. This was a position in which they would have received, and been entitled to support; on the ground they have taken they will be defeated ; and in fact, as indeed might have been expec...

Select Poetry THE OFFICER'S TEAR. (From Punch.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 30 January 1849
Select Poetry &nbsp; THE OFFICER'S TEAR. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; (From Punch.) Before the glass he stood, &nbsp; To take a last fond view Of his person in his old undress Regimental frock of blue ; He marked how soldierlike &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The vestment did appear, And this unhappy Officer Could not restrain a tear. " Could any coat on earth," Said he, " look half so well ? Must we change this graceful uniform &nbsp; For the unbecoming shell ? In that crustaceous garb, &nbsp; Our type will be the snail ; &nbsp; The happier shell fish weareth not A coat without a tail." " Besides, the change will cost Full nigh a quarter's pay, And the coat that scarce hath service seen, We shall have to throw away ; Thus, treating us exactly like Light-fingered gentry do, Not only they cut off our tails, But pick our pockets too." His manly cheek was wet— He put his hands behind, And he felt the skirts of his su...
Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 30 January 1849
Domestic Intelligence. Forgery.—Some weeks back a bushman was brought before the Police Bench charged with uttering a forged cheque for £15 7s. Upon investigating the case it transpired that the prisoner had received the cheque in question from Messrs. Rose and Myles, landlords of the "Elephant Inn," about forty miles from Mel- &nbsp; bourne in change for a cheque for a large amount, the man having had some refreshments. The Magistrates who presided on that occasion gave their opinion that it was necessary the publican should shew how he became possessed of the forged document, and held that he was account- able to the bushman for the amount. On Wed- nesday last, the Bench were informed that Mr. Myles had arrived in town, but was at present indisposed, in proof of which a medical certificate was handed in. It was subsequently intimated that Mr. Myles would be able to attend on Friday, and it was therefore decided that the matter would be investigated this morning. Cooksland....

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 whose list." WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 31, 1849. &nbsp; THE GOLDEN DISCOVERY. WE have little further to say with respect to the Port Phillip Gold Field, the dis- covery of which we announced in our Extraordinary of Wednesday evening. The particulars with which we then pre- sented our readers were substantially correct, and further enquiries strengthen the conviction that we then expressed, to the effect that a very rich and ample supply of the most sought after of metals &nbsp; had been discovered. One slight error we fell into, in stating that the large mass of Gold shewn us by M. Duchene had been found by that gentleman, whereas it formed a portion of that first shewn by the shepherd to Mr. Brentani and which was divided between him and M. Duchene. On proceeding with the shepherd to the spot he pointed out, strong indications of Gold presented the...
