WARRNAMBOOL. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 6 February 1849

WARRNAMBOOL. (From our own correspondent.)   Our gallant little trader, the Mary ar- rived here last week, bringing a more than usual complement of passengers. Several of the newly-arrived immi- grants have come to this quarter—no less than six couple having been en- gaged for various persons in this dis- trict. I see by the Melbourne papers, that Captain Noon, has been presented with a quadrant, as a token for his ser- vices while in the present trade, and he certainly deserves it, for a more active seaman, or a better hearted soul, there is not on the coast, and I am happy to see that he has met with his reward. The harvest has fairly commenced, and the cockatoo farmers are in the height of their glory,—fifteen shillings per acre is the price given here, with three glasses of grog per day, and board included. This, however, is a ruinous price, considering the low price wheat is expected to sell at this year. At Lake Colac, 11s. is all the shearers are re- ceiving, whi...

Domestic Intelligence. Vagrancy.—-A creole, named Qua- venda, a native of Singapore, was again brought before the police bench, on Fri- day last, upon a charge of vagrancy. As their Worships (Councillor Russell and Dr. Fletcher) were about entering into the case, Edward Curr, Esq. of St. Helliers, came into the office, and ex- plained that the defendant had gone to his residence where a servant resided who had been a shipmate of Quavenda's from Singapore, and had given the following statement. He left his hired service in the bush because some of his comrades had been speared to death by the blacks, and had travelled for several days before he could find out the town ; on his arrival in Melbourne he was waylaid one night,   robbed of five dollars, and nearly killed by the violence of the robbers, one of whom held him by the throat ; and that from the day of the robbery he had been going about the city as a vagrant, living upon the alms of the charitably disposed.

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, FEBRUARY 6, 1849. THE GOLDEN DISCOVERY.   Public attention continues rivetted upon the late all-important discovery of the existence of gold in large quantity in this province, and expectation is wound up to the highest pitch as to the probable result of the dis- covery, and the steps which will be taken by the Government in reference to it. It is our duty to keep our readers apprised of events as they occur, but it is difficult to follow the tangled maze, —and truth is hard to be got at, where the direct interest is to deceive. We have no longer to combat with scepticism as to the actual fact of the discovery ; that difficulty is fairly got over, for since the return of Mr. Brentani, the plain, tangible proof of the existence of gold, rich in quality, and abundant in quantity, precludes all chance of doubt upon the subject. ...

Domestic Intelligence. The applications for Leases.—The   Herald is excusing itself for delaying the publi- cation of applications for leases for the Portland   Bay district, delivers itself of a falsehood, which   from its hugeness, may be pronounced a Buggins' entire. It is to the effect of the gross incorrect- ness of those returns, as published in this journal,   leading as our truthful contemporary asserts,   to their publication being interdicted till com-j   pleted in the Government Gazette. The Herald further states that our having pub- lished them in the mode we have done, arises from " a view to forestall" our contempo- raries ; and that our wholesale blunders have   caused great inconvenience to the local govern- ment. Now the fact is, that the mode we have adopted with these applications, has been forced upon us by their voluminous nature, the extent of which the editor of the Hera...

Select Poetry. TO AN ECHO ON THE BANKS OF THE HUNTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 6 February 1849

SELECT POETRY TO AN ECHO ON THE BANKS OF THE HUNTER. by Charles Harpur—(an Australian.) I hear thee, Echo, and I start to hear thee, With a strange tremour ; as among the hills Thy voice reverbs, and in swift murmurs near me Dies down the stream, or with its gurgle low Blends whisp'ringly — until my bosom thrills With gentle tribulations, that endear thee, But smack not of tbe present. 'Twas as though Some Spirit of the past did then insphere thee   Even with the taste of life's regretted spring— Waking wild recollections, to evince My Being's transfused connexion with each thing Loved, though long since. It seems but yesterday since last I stood Beside the Hawkesbury even as now I stand By the swift Hunter, challenging, o'er the flood, An echo thus: but with a glorious brood Of hopes then glowing round me, and a band Of schoolmates and young creatures of my blood, All quick with joyousness beyond command ! And now, with that delightful day, oh, where Are those fresh jo...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 6 February 1849

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus.           Sir,—Allow me to bring this series of calculations to a close by summing up   the results, as proposed in my twelfth letter, and to prove, as I flatter myself, the superior advantages of agriculture combined with pastoral pursuits, to the colony in general, and of Australia Felix   in particular, to the present apparently insane plan of making the former merely a secondary object, dependent upon the will of our squatting lords. In No. 6, I have shewn the probable slow progress of Agriculture up to 1865, and in No. 12, the possible number of inhabitants. In No. 4, I stated that in the years 1852-6, in all human probability, the British Colonies would produce on an average J52 millions lbs. wool, or more than one third above the probable demand in 1864-65, and of this I calculated the share accruing to this district at 23,900,000 lbs...
