MELBOURNE MARKETS. FEBRUARY 9, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 9 February 1849

MELBOURNE MARKETS. February 9, 1849. Grain.—The harvest is all but over, and the result proves the justness of our anticipations of a splendid crop. A few samples of new wheat have been sold at from 3s 4d to 3s 6d per bushel, and last year's wheat bears the sume value. Oats are steady at last week's prices, 3s to 3s 6d, according to quality. Hay had fallen 5s a ton, £2 5s being the figure for finest quality.

SYDNEY MARKETS. FEBRUARY 3RD. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 9 February 1849

SYDNEY MARKETS. February 3rd. Wheat.—There is nothing doing in ¡mported. The supply of colonial during the week has been very extensive, and, with the exception of a few loads, all of excellent quality, has been disposed of at from 2s 9d to 3s 3d per bushel ; for a few small very choice samples 1d to 2d higher is said to have been given. The millers buying largely, inferior will not be, at present, looked at but at a very low figure ; and it may be remarked what   is now considered inferior some six months since was regarded as middling, and fetched a price accordingly. Flour.—This article has experienced a fall since last notice. The general quotation yesterday was first, per 2,000 lbs, £9 .10s ; seconds, per ditto, £8 10s, and ration per ditto £7 10s. Business is reported to have been done at a lower figure still.—Herald.

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 9 February 1849

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—Strange doings at Belfast, nothing   but war and rumours of war, confusion and disorder, the people have caught the revolutionary mania, have at length re- solved to stand to their rights, to be no longer trampled underfoot, by a spirit of despotism, equalled only by the stern mandate of a Russian chief, the cabinet band broken up, disgusted no doubt by the arbitrary power and misrule of Wil- liam the First, king of the J.P.'s who is now left " solus" to finish the work—he himself began, the Marquis of Shadwell, "Knight of the Blue's" in ill health and unable to attend to the duties of Government. Earl Parembeet, knight of the white rod and lord of the bedchamber has been dismissed from office, in conse- quence it is said of some attempted inroad upon the constitution of —— and " Mark, Nick-em-soon," knight of the Falls, and his " Foster" brother, keeper of the woods and forests, anticipating the political declin...

INSOLVENT COURT. Tuesday, February 6. (Before R. W. Pohlman, Esq., Commissioner.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 9 February 1849

INSOLVENT COURT. Tuesday, February 6. (Before R. W. Pohlman, Esq., Commissioner.) In re George Willmot.—Insolvent filed his     schedule on 26th November, 1844, and received his certificate of discharge on 26th December, 1846. Circumstances have recently come to the knowledge of the creditors, which raised a suspicion tbat insolvent had fraudulently alienates some of his property, and as the act provides, he was again brought up for examination. Mr. Gurner appeared for the assignee, Mr Graham, and Mr Bennett attended for Willmot. Mr. Gurner examined the insolvent who stated in substance, that in June or July 1841, he pur- chased from a person named Sheppard, a portion   of an allotment at the corner of Swanston and Bourke-streets, for which he gave three promis-   sory notes, amounting to £96. None of these   bills were ever paid. Insolvent took possession of the property at the time of the purchase, and he or his wife...

The Argus I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak, [?]mpugn it whoso list." FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1849. MORE POLLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 9 February 1849

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." FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1849. MORE POLLUTION. The nearly simultaneous arrival of another batch of Pentonvillains and a despatch from Earl Grey hinting at the probability of compliance on the part of the Home Government, with the request of our squatting legislators for the ines- timable privilege of inundation with British crime, seems very like an indi- cation of an intention to resume trans- portation to New South Wales in one form or another. The Cape of Good Hope Colony has positively refused to receive these scoun- drels ; the South and Western Colonies of Australia have also successfully resisted their introduction ; and even the   "Dust Hole of the Empire," the convict   Colony of Van Diemen's Land, is leaguing against farther pollution. If, therefore, British criminals are to be poured in upon us, it is only because o...

THE LIGHTS OF BASS'S STRAITS. REPORT OF CAPTAIN STANLEY, H.M.S. RATTLESNAKE. (From the Nautical Magazine for September.) CAPE OTWAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 9 February 1849

THE LIGHTS OF BASS'S STRAITS. REPORT OF CAPTAIN STANLEY, H.M.S. RATTLESNAKE. (From the Nautical Magazine for Sep- tember.) CAPE OTWAY. The contractor's tender for the erec- tion of this lighthouse was accepted in October, 1846, but in October, 1847, the Government foreclosed on this contract, and in November sixty-four men were shipped by the Government on board a small schooner; but from stress   of weather were unable to effect a land- ing. They then proceeded overland to the Cape, and on the 1st of December, 1847, the works were actually commenced. At the period of Lieutenant Yule's visit the foundation of the lighthouse was completed, and the building had been carried up from two to four feet above the surface.   The quarters intended for the light- keepers have already been erected, and the crest of a sandhill inshore of the lighthouse has been removed, in order that the light may be seen from all di- rections to seaward. It was at first in- tended to ...

Select Poetry THE ROMANCE OF KELLY'S POST OFFICE DIRECTORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 9 February 1849

Select poetry THE ROMANCE OF KELLY'S POST OFFICE DIRECIORY. Air—" The Old English Gentleman." We hear of days long passed away, and glorióos times of old, And how Young England's sons affirm we're getting dull and cold ; But yet romance is not quite dead—in common daily life She still exists; of which great fact you'll find examples rife In the Post Office Directory all of the present year.   (Chorus dependent upon the convivial and musical propensities of the listeners.) Of Knights, though chivalry has pass'd, we note a goodly band, From selling Penny Magazines, to oysters in the Strand ; And 'Squires, too, a stalwart crew, in every trade are seen, From fishmongers in Cleveland Street, to Che- mists to the Queen, In the Post Office Directory, etc. And Pages print and lithograph ; and, deeming it no sin, Monks cell cigars, and trade in cheese, and keep a Cross Keys Inn ; Nuns, too, in New Kent Road, import tobacco to our land ; And there are cells of Abbots in the New I...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 9 February 1849

Domestic Intelligence. THE GOLD MINE. — Public ex- citement continues unabated in re-   gard to the late discovery of the ex- istence of gold in the province, but there is comparatively little additional intelli- gence to be given on the subject. Half a dozen native troopers, under the command of of Mr. Dans, jun., were   despatched to the Pyrenees on Tuesday last, and his Honor the Superintendent, since his return, after investigation as to the reality of the discovery, has directed the Commissioner of Crown Lands for   the District, (Mr. Powlett,) to proceed to the scene of action with a party of the mounted police. No intelligence has as yet reached Melbourne as to whether any of the explorers have hit upon the right spot, but those persons who left town on the night of the publication of our Extraordinary, which gave the first intimation of the discovery, in search of the shepherd, whom they supposed to be at the Pyrenees, returned on Wedne...

NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 13 February 1849

NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS.   We have received a communication from the inte- rior complaining in very strong terms of the manner in which an Inn on the Loddon road, not a hundred miles from the Serpentme Creek, is conducted, and accusing the landlord, among     other matters, of winking at parties in his house   planting the property of travellers in order to make them " stand sam" for their recovery. The letter tr nches on the libellous, and we can- not consequently publish it, but this notice will perhaps have the effect of putting a stop to such reprehensible doings.

IMPORTANT FROM INDIA. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 13 February 1849

IMPORTANT FROM INDIA. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) News from India to the end of Octo- ber had been received at Hobart Town via the Mauritius, and we regret to state that it is of a very lamentable kind. There is now no doubt that we are engaged in a Punjaub war. General Whish had been compelled to raise the siege of Mooltan, and had " taken a position to the westward of the town on   the banks of the Chenab, and was waiting the development of the Government pl*{^ with reference to the country at large. It appears that the seige had commenced,   and there had been some very sharp work, as four officers and two hundred men were killed in carrying a position   for the second parallel, but still it titi clear that a few days must be sufficient to batter down the fort, when suddenly the Rajah Shere Singh with a large body of men and 9 guns deserted to the enemy ; not knowing how far disaffection might have spread among the native allies, the G...
