MORE POLLUTION. Has Excellency the Governor has an- nounced the receipt of the following despatch from the Right Hon. the Se- cretary of State for the Colonies :— Downing-.street, 16th August, 1848. &nbsp; SIR,—I have the honor to acquaint you that I have received from the hands of Mr. Francis Scott and some other gentlemen, a numerously signed Petition, purporting to proceed from all the principal classes of employers of labor in New South Wales, of which document I enclose a copy for your information. It would have been far more regular that this petition should have been transmitted through the Governor, and I much regret that the sub- scribers to it should have thought it advisable to deviate from the usual course. They may rely upon it that they can choose no channel through which any wishes they may be desirous to express, can be transmitted with greater advantage than through her Majesty's Representative in the Colony. You will acquaint the petitioners, however, that ...
THE LOTTERY SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 2 February 1849
THE LOTTERY SYSTEM. THE Sydney Morning Herald, after keeping remarkably quiet, during the whole of the late excitement attendant upon the lottery of the Bank of Aus- tralia, now adopts the following tone in the matter of lotteries generally, coinci- ding precisely in the views which we took from the first, upon the subject of these direct incitements to gambling and extravagance. ANOTHER LOTTERY SCHEME. THE gratifying result—to the proprietary—of the late Bank of Australia lottery, seems to have had the same effect upon them as, according to some naturalists, the taste of human blood has upon animals of prey. The agreeable recollection sharpens the appetite for more. A lottery, how- ever, once and away, and under the peculiar cir- cumstances which preceded and accompanied the one which has just gone off, may be just endured, &nbsp; and was only just endured by us, for we neither praised nor censured ; but the attempt at an encore we would summarily stop. When we read the adv...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 2 February 1849
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. MR. EDITOR,—I now proceed to estimate the probable extent of ground that will require to be laid down under wheat, for the period we are considering. On re- ferring to my Letter, No. 7, you will observe that I consider 520lb. of flour to be the annual consumption per head; the production from a bushel of wheat, 44lb.; consequently taking 30 bushels per acre, as the average crop of the Dis- trict, it will, in round numbers, require nearly one-third of an acre to support a human being. On referring to Letter No. 11, it appears that 8240 acres were under wheat in 1848, being about 5000 under what was required for home con- sumption. Now proceeding upon this data, I shall endeavour to show the gra- dual progress of our wheat cultivation, for the next 16 years, under the system of Emigration considered in Nos. 12 and 13, premising that I allow 2½ individuals to be supported by each acre of wheat, and that we raise a sufficient supply f...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 2 February 1849
NEW ZEALAND. YESTERDAY'S overland Mail from Sydney puts us in possession of Wellington Journals to the 10th ult. The Governor-in-Chief, Sir George Grey, opened the first Legislative Coun- cil of the Southern Province, or New Munster, with a lengthy address and subsequently in reply to an address from the Council, Sir George informed the Council of the nature of the constitution he had recommended to the Secretary of State, in lieu of the former constitution, which was suspended at his instance.—His Excellency replied as follows:— I feel much pleasure in complying with the wishes of the Legislative Council, as expressed in their address of the 22nd instant, by informing them, 1. That I have reported to her Majesty's Go- vernment, as my opinion, that a complete sys- tem of representative government, of the form aftermentioned, may with safety be introduced into the whole of the New Zealand Islands, at a date when the act suspending the Constitution recently conferred upon these Island...
THE ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 2 February 1849
THE ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE. MR. JUSTICE A'BECKETT'S hyper- critical exactness in mere legal techni- calities, has reduced the administration of justice in this province to such a pass that crime bids fair to flourish unmoles- ted, for the process of getting rid of a committal to the gaol has become so easy as to render the magistrates nearly power- less, and the punishment of imprison- ment a mere bugbear. Not a week passes without one or more scoundrels being let loose on society under writs of habeas corpus, a writ which we could almost venture to wager is more frequently brought into play in Melbourne, under Judge a'Beckett's ad- ministration of the law, than in all the rest of her Majesty's dominions put together, and in most cases the grounds for discharging the warrant are most contemptibly trivial, and such as would never be thought of were almost any other Judge on the bench. Only last week two of the most notorious scoun- drels in the province, got rid of their sentences...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 2 February 1849
Domestic Intelligence. &nbsp; &nbsp; ILLEGAL IMPOUNDING.—Mr. Thomas Brown, of the Moonee Ponds, appeared at the Police Office, on Friday last, to substantiate a charge of illegal im- &nbsp; pounding against Mr. P. Philan, a neigh- bouring farmer. The defendant had impounded ten head of cattle belonging to complainant, for which a trespass fee of 2s. 6d. per head had been charged instead of 4d., as allowed by the Act. Mr. Paynter, for the defence, denied that the bench had any jurisdiction in the case. Mr. John Stephen, for the pro- secution, explained the law bearing upon the point, and contended that the bench had jurisdiction. Councillor Russell, who presided, was of opinion that the magistrates had no jurisdiction, and dis- missed the complaint; Mr. Stephen said he had several cases of a similar nature, and in order to test the matter, he would apply for a mandamus to com- pel the bench to hear them. Mr. Russell thought the magistrates would be happy to ha...
PORT FAIRY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 2 February 1849
PORT FAIRY. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] &nbsp; We have had for some time many com- plaints against our Police Office arrange- ments ; great complaint is made of the non-attendance of our Police Clerk at this office ; it certainly is not his fault at all times, but that of those who have placed him there, for being the only medical man who visits at a distance from the town, he has to attend his pati- ents, which causes great inconvenience to those having business at the office, but in not a few instances it is sheer neglect, as not unfrequently the flag has to be hoisted to recall him from the Bay, where he has been fishing.— A short time since several Executions were issued out of the Small Debts Court against one person for wages, among others a boy obtained a Decree and Execution, a levy was made, and some sheep brought to town, the bailiff, who in his capacity of Chief Constable, had to attend the Su- preme Court at Melbourne, before the appointed day of Sale, deputed ...

PORT FAIRY. A public meeting was held on the sixth day of January last, at the Royal Merri- jig Hotel, Belfast, which was numerously and respectably attended, not only by residents in the town, but by many gen- tlemen connected with the interior.

Select Poetry. CHARADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 2 February 1849
Select Poetry CHARADE. Lady Amy Arlington beyond a doubt was very fair, Long and sweeping were her lashes, soft and rippling was her hair— Not the undulating bands in which young ladies now delight, By hot irons falsely waved, or plaited very tight at night. But long dewy tresses falling o'er her cheeks and ivory shoulders, Darkly cluster'd à ravir, and driving frantic the beholders. Lady Amy Arlington was followed by a dangling train, But my first to their discomfort could alone her favour gain. He was ever at her side, With her daily used to ride; In her boudoir he intruded Where all others were excluded ; And the crowd of lovers mutter'd, fairly distanced in the race, " What a lucky dog he is, and would that I were in his place." Harry Vane—so on dits tell— Lov'd the Lady Amy well. &nbsp; But he sigh'd, " Ah ! woe is me ! Sooner than myself, I see, Aught can her my second be." Whether it was her canary hanging in the gilded cage, Or the tiny cup of china, part of a small ...
