NEW ZEALAND. (From the Sydney Herald, August 31.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 8 September 1846
NEW ZEALAND. (From the Sydney Herald, August 31.) Ti.i: Kate brings news from Port Nicholson two or three days later than had previously come to hand. The friendly natives, followed by the regular troops and militia, were in active pursuit of Ranghaeta, and the day that the vessel sailed, a report reached Wellington that he had beeu surrounded in his pull, and his escape was con- sidered impossible. A severe loss was incurred in cnpturing a small pah in which some of the rebels had taken refuge. Ensign Blackburn and two soldiers of the 99th regiment, and two sea- men of U.M.S. Calliope, were killed. The rebels were supposed to have suffered severely.

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 8 September 1846
ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. Tun Rookery, arrived at Launceston, brings Eng- lish intelligence to the 7th May,- of which we find the following brief summary in our Hobart Town contemporary the Colonial Times : The Queen is not yet confined. Her Majesty and ttie Royal Family are in excellent health. -Lord Bute is attain the Queen's Commissioner to the General Assembly of Scotland, The Corn-law Abolition Bill was, on the 6th May, in Committee in the House of Commons. Mr. Smith O'Brien has been committed for re- fusing to serve on a Railway Committee. Ile is Member for Northamptonshire, and is named in the Stanley admiuistratijii as Chief Secretary for Ireland. The first reading of the Irish Coercion Bill was carried by a majority of 149. Ireland continues in a most afflicting state. Trade in England is stated to be very dull. Spain and Portugal were in a miserable state. The news from America is to the 13th April.-, We are fully convinced there will be no war.
LATEST FROM SYDNEY, [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 8 September 1846
LATEST FROM SYDNEY, Our last night's express brings no in- telligence from Sydney of any moment, excepting the report of the public meeting held there, on the 31st ult., for the pur- pose of raising a fund for the relief of the destitute Irish The meeting was a most successful one, between £300 and £400 being subscribed before its close, (£10 from the Bishop of Australia,) but it was 'differently set about from the meeting here, being duly convened by the Mayor, and apparently wanting in the unprin» cipled display we have had here in the ¡ first of the requisitionists sneering at the meeting, held at his own request, and glorifying himself in the failure of an undertaking in furtherance of his own i views, and in which he himself held office.
A BISHOP FOR MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 8 September 1846
A BISHOP FOR MELBOURNE. So-the time long talked-of lias arrived at last-Melbourne is to have a Bishop the Town is to become a city-and the Province is to be'erected into the dignity of an Episcopal see. Well ! so far there is no harm done, for though we love not the animal-the drone bee being the most useless in the hive according to our way of thinking-still there may be ssm.e people of a different opinion, and there is no earthly reasoh why their taste should not be indulged provided only they are willing them- selves to " pay for the whistle." But it seems that Mr. Secretary Glad- stone, forgetting that the Colony has either Legislature or laws, has taken upon himself to fix a salary for the Bishopric of £500 payable out of the Colonial Treasury, and this we think is very far from well. The Colonial Church Act takes no cognizance of degrees among the clergy, the humble, hard-working Curate being under that measure on' a par, in point of remuneration, with the lordly Bishop, or th...

DR. LEICHHARDT'S LECTURES. LECTURE II. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 8 September 1846
DR. LEICHHARDTS LECTURES. LECTURE II. Delivered at the School of Arts, Sydney, on Tuesday, August 25. Ladies and Gentlemen-I shall now give you an account of the change of ve- getation we experienced in advancing into the tropics ; I shall enumerate all the edible vegetable substances we found, the change of animals, and shall conclude with some observations on the natives we met during our journey. The vegetation changed very little along the east coast from Moreton Bay to the northward. The open forest was gene- &nbsp; rally formed by the narrovv-leaved and silver-leaved ironbark, the flats were co- vered by box, the bergs along the rivers and creeks, by bloodwood and Moreton Bay ash ; and the immediate banks of the creeks were lined by flooded gums and casuarians, which, farther northward, gave way to the drooping tea-tree. We never met with vine and cedar brushes like those which grow along the rivers of Port Macquarie and Moreton Bay, or on the sides of mountains, like ...

THE DRUNKARD'S ADDRESS TO HIS BOTTLE. You old Brandy Bottle, I've loved you too long, &nbsp; You have been a bad messmate to me ; &nbsp; When I met with you first, I was healthy and strong, And handsome as handsome could be. I had plenty of cash in my pocket and purse, And my cheeks were as red as a rose, And the day when I took you for better for worse I'd a beautiful acquiline nose. But noH? only look, I'm a fright to behold, '' The beauty I boasted has fled, You would think I was nearly a hundred years old, When I'm raising mj hand to my head , Tor it trembles and shakes like the earth when it quakes, And I'm constantly spilling my tea , And whenever I speak 1 make awful mistakes, lill every one s laughing at me The ladies don't love me, and this I can trace lo the loss of my acquiime nose, Like an overgiown stiawberry stuck on my face, Still larger and lar"er it grows And I h iven't a cent in my pocket or purse, And my clothes are all dirty and torn , Oh, you old...
