The stock on hand is said not to exceed four months'   consumption; nearly the whole of that bonded has been sold. A gentleman has proceeded to V. D. Land with the intention of purchasing largely for this market The brigs Swan amd Raven brought about sixty tons of fruit, consisting principally of apples and plums. The Shamrock will probably add to this supply, but there is no ready sale. The large quantity of apples produced here this season has     rendered importation unnecessary. Colonial f...

The Argus I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak, irnpugn it whoso list." TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1849. ENGLISH NEWS. English intelligence by recent arrivals extends to 9th November, but there is nothing of much importance. Cholera had been raging severely in London, and the Bosad of Henlth had issued stringent regulations. Ireland was quiet ; the state trials were proceeding slowly ; Mr. R. D. Williams, one of the proprietors of the Tribune, was acquitted ; O'Dog- herty, Duffy, Williams, and Meagher, were convicted of high treason, and re- ceived sentence of death, but no doubt was entertained that their lives would be spared. Some points of law are to be argued in Mr. Smith O'Brien's case under a writ of error, and if unsuccessful, he had still the right of appeal to the House of Lords.—Lord Middleton had committed Suicide.—The expedition under Sir James Ross, had been spoken in lat. 74 ° 20'.—Vienna had been besieged ...

THE TOWN HALL. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 13 February 1849

THE TOWN HALL. A good deal of interest has been excited by the discussion in the City Council on the proposed site for the Town Hall. The Public Works Committee have de- cided upon recommending the application to the Government, for a large plot of land between the end of Bourke Street and St. Peter's Church, and their report was adopted, as will be seen by reference to another column.—The matter, how- ever, was considered of such importance that a call of the Council was deter- mined upon, and the question is to be finally decided on Thursday next. An intimation was given that "a pri- vate conversation" with his Honor, the Superintendent, led to the belief that the application of the Council would be favourably considered ; and we would here remark (parenthetically, as a late worthy Mayor would have it) that there appears a most singular difference be- tween the facility of communication, the sunny complacency which the City Council experiences through the medium of their private c...

HOW A LADY BECAME A FREEMASON. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 13 February 1849

HOW A LADY BECAME A FREE- MASON.   The Hon. Elizabeth St. Leger was the only female who was ever initiated into the ancient and honourable mystery of Freemasonry. How she obtained this honour we shall lay before our readers, having procured the only genuine infor- mation from the best sources. Lord Do- neraile, Miss St. Leger's father, a zeañj Mason, held a warrant, and occasionally opened a lodge at Doneraile House, his sons and some intimate friends assisting; and it is said that never were the Masonic duties more rigidly performed than by the brethren of No. 150, the number of their warrant. It appears that, previous to the initiation of a gentleman to the first step of Masonry, Miss St. Leger, who was a young girl, happened to be in an apartment adjoining the room gene- rally used as a lodge-room ; but whether the young lady was there by design or accident we cannot confidently state. This room at the time was undergoing some alteration ; amongst other things the wa...

THE COLD-EARTH CURE. (From Punch.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 13 February 1849

THE COLD-EARTH CURE. (From Punch.) There is no soil in which quackery flourishes so well, and bears such good fruit, as in England. From cow-cabbages to Life Pills—from homœopathy to brandy and salt—from nonsense to downright stupidity—it does not matter what it is, they all take root, and the weaker the plant, generally the further it shoots, and the larger the produce gathered from it. You have only to cultivate it well with advertisments, and the crop cannot fail to be a liberal one. The last specimen of greenness in this particular branch has been the Cold-Earth Cure. It seems that a man's diseases, like his faults, are completely buried when once he is put under the earth. You are embedded for so many hours, up to your chin, and you come out quite new clay. We have heard of an hospital where the patients were arranged in so many beds, with their heads in rows, like a field of cabbages. The doctor is the gardener, and he digs you up when you are well, and carries you home in a w...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 13 February 1849

Domestic Intelligence. Destruction or Property. — On Saturday last Mr George M'Manus, a resident of Swanston Street, appeared at the Police Office to answer a charge of malicious destruction of property, pre- ferred against him by Mr. Michael Dawson, grocer. The offence consisted in pulling down a portion of the fence surrounding an allotment of ground at the corner of Swanston and Bourke Streets, the property of Mr Dawson, by which a current of water had been directed into a store erected thereon, and a quantity of perishable goods, such as whiting, sugar, &c., becoming saturated with the water were completely destroyed. The case was dismissed upon a technical objection raised to the information and summons by Mr. John Stephen, who appeared for defendant. Assaults.—Mr. M'Crudden of Kin- lochewe, was fined £2 and 4s. 6d. costs, at the Police Office on Saturday, for an assault upon a tailor named Simmonds; a second case for assaulting Mrs. Sim- monds was dismissed.

THE GERMAN IMMIGRANTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 13 February 1849

THE GERMAN IMMIGRANTS. This is an interesting time in Emigra- tion matters. The arrival of the Lord Hungerford has shown the success of a novel attempt to introduce a very useful class to our community, and that of the Godeffroy possesses peculiar claims to attention, from furnishing us with the first instalment of a species of immigra- tion, pregnant with more than usual inte- rest and advantage. That vessel pro- ceeds to Adelaide in a few days, after discharging upon our shores the first body of German Immigrants that have ever landed here. Their number, and their respective callings, are as follows; MEN. WOMEN. Tailors.3 Domestic servants...2 Mason........1 Dressmakers....3 Vine dresser.1 Midwives.2 Botanist and gar- Schoolmistress ......1 dener.1 Washerwomen ......2 Miller.1 : Farming bailiffs.....2   Whitesmith.1 Cutlers and steel     workers.4;     Clerks.3 Dyer.1     Sawyer.1 &n...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 13 February 1849

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—I am told that it is intended to propose Mr. William Macarthur of Camden, as a candi- date for the representation of this District in the Legislative Council, at the nomination in Geelong on Thursday. Surely the parties who contemplate taking this step do not know what they are doing. Though io son od the father of our " golden fleece " Mr. William Macarthur is in his own person the very :au ideal of a Colonial exclusive, and he be- longs to a family identified all along with the op- position to free institutions, having been himself a member of the famous " Rowell's Club," (of which by the way, " Buggins " was for a time the secretary), and his brother James, when he con- itel the County of Cumberland with Mr. C. owper, as you, Sir, may recollect, flourished as a trophy in his button-hole the ribbon which tied the petition got up against granting municipal corporations to Sydney and Melbourne. Mr. Stuart Donaldson, who is al...

THE ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 13 February 1849

THE ELECTION. On Thursday next a recruit will be required to supply the place of the first of the deserters from the small forlorn hope, which our wiseacres have decided upon sending against the citadel of the Sydney Legislative Council. It was at first suspected, that we should return to our practise in old times, and that the election would pass quietly over, unknown to any, save some half dozen persons, as was wont to be the case till we showed last August, that we would not lend ourselves to such nonsense any longer. But the   days are gone by, when Jack Smith and Tom Brown could walk up to the Court House with a newspaper reporter, go through a ceremony which even they could not help laughing at, and apprise the people of Port Phillip the following morning, that they, the said people, had triumphantly exercised one of the highest privileges of a British subject, and had returned a man that they probably never heard of before, as their representative in the Legislat...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 13 February 1849

Domestic Intelligence. The Gold Mine.—Several of the parties who left Melbourne in search of the whereabouts of the recent golden discovery, re-   turned to Melbourne on Saturday, having aban- doned the search in consequence of the arrival of the Native Police, and set fire to the bush to pre- vent their tracks being followed up. From what we can leam it seems that though so far the exact locality from which the extraordinary rich ore   shewn in Melbourne was taken has not been hit upon, enough has been found to shew the parties that they were in the golden country and they only await a clear field to start afresh. The re- port they bring back is not flattering to the original gold hunters who are represented to have lived "at back and manger" at Messrs. M'Neill anti Hall's station, and led the whole establish-   ment a dance for a couple of days, on pretence of wanting to purchase the sheep and station, the bargain finally breaking off on Forr...

Select Poetry CHARADE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 13 February 1849

Select Poetry CHARADE. When the thousands rushed to Capel Court in search of shares, Thinking they had made vast fortunes for them-   selves and for their heirs; When the publisher in Paris gave a cheque to Eugene Sue, Thinking he should reap a ten-fold harvest by " The Wandering Jew," Which I must confess I never saw the merit of— did you? When the " Gent" who went to Epsom, thinking he was sure to win, Back'd the field against the favourite at long odds through thick and thin ; When folks thought that Hanson's Aerial Ship was certain to succeed ; When the " House" so blindly trusted to the blasts of Dr. Reid ; When the country visitor got in the 'bus at Cockspur-street, Thinking he should reach the Bank much sooner so than on his feet; When these manias came to pass—I scarcely know which was the worst— Then be sure, without exception, everybody was my first. Stake and block have passed away, . Ducking-stool and sever'd wrist; Wheel and rack have gone for aye, Yet my p...
