REVISION COUUT-LONSDALE WARD. Tuesday, 3rd October, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 6 October 1848
REVISION COUUT—-LONSDALE WARD. Tuesday, 3rd October, 1848. Before Alderman Greeves and Messrs Duneee &nbsp; and Niven, Assessors. The adjourned case of Timothy Considine having been resumed, the Alderman read an opinion from Mr Williams, the standing Counsel for the Corporation, on a case given, in winch the learned gentleman held that the signature in the notice of objection "John P. Smith" was sufficient, though "J. P. Smith " would not. Mr Williams was also of opinion that the words " the place of abode of the said John P. Smith is the house No. 241 in the Burgess List for Lons- dale Ward" was a sufficient description of the &nbsp; place of abode of the objector. Councillor Kerr submitted that the opinion of Mr Williams had been taken on a statement &nbsp; which was inconsistent with fact, and in respect of his position called for het production of the Bur- gess List, when it appeared that there was no such number appearing there as No. 241, the latter bei...
REVISION COURT—BOURKE WARD. Wednesday 4th October. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 6 October 1848
REVISION COURT—BOURKE WARD. Wednesday 4th October. Before Alderman Bell, and Messrs Goldie and Sommerville, Assessors. Two objections had been filed in this Ward, the first against Mr John Clarke, the Solicitor, and Mr Councillor Smith, the objector in both. &nbsp; cases being Mr Councillor Kerr. Mr Sammons as agent for Mr Clarke, admitted the service of notice, but contended that an ap- pearance having been made on part of Mr Clarke it was incumbent on the objector to give proof in &nbsp; support of his objection. Councillor Kerr said the Act directed that on proof of due services of notice, the court would require proof of the qualification of the party ob- jected to. It would be preposterous to say that this proof was required of him, seeing he was there for tbe express purpose of establishing the contrary. Mr Sammons said this might be a new course, but he was instructed by Counsel that it was the proper one. Councillor Kerr advised Mr Sammons to place small reli...

The Argus. &nbsp; I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak &nbsp; impugn it whose list." &nbsp; FRIDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1848. THE LAST ACT OF THE FARCE. The District election is over, and the Province is, apparently, once more bles- sed with representation in the Legislative Council, in the persons of Messrs. Wil- liamson, McKinnon, Palmer, Dickson, and Curr, or, more properly speaking, of as many of these gentlemen as can or will &nbsp; take their seats, for some of them do not &nbsp; &nbsp; possess a sufficient qualification, and others will not proceed to Sydney. &nbsp; This seeming triumph of the "election &nbsp; &nbsp; principle" is, in reality, a woful defeat, &nbsp; for it proves, most incontestibly, that though there was not unanimity in the &nbsp; "non-election " camp on the subject of the election of Peers, the " non election" pr...

THE DISTRICT ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 6 October 1848
THE DISTRICT ELECTION. Tuesday being the day appointed in the Go- vernor's writ for taking the poll at the different polling places, the Returning Officer, R. W. Pohlman, Esq., presided at a polling place in one of the rooms, in the Supreme Court. Great preparations had been made on behalf of the resident candidates, a committee room being opened at the Britania Hotel, and the town placarded with invitations to " rush to the poll," which, however, were very slowly responded to, the whole affair being desperately dull, the sup- porters of the Peers having resolved to make no exertion whatever, but to let matters take their course. In the poll-room, Mr. Duerdin, solicitor, ap- peared as agent for the resident candidates, and Mr. Councillor Kerr for the Peers. At the opening of the poll the votes came in very slowly, the only enlivening feature of the proceedings being an objection taken by Mr. Kerr, as agent for his Grace the Duke of Wellington and his Noble and Right Hou. colleagues,...

MELBOURNE MARKETS. October 5, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 6 October 1848
MELBOURNE MARKETS. October 5, 1848. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Grain.—No transactions have taken place in wheat this week, but the dealers have made up their minds to give the price we last quoted (4s. 9d. per bushel) only for the very best sam- ples ; it may therefore be considered that at pre- sent this description of grain has a downward tendency. Oats are very scarce, but are not much in demand, they are selling at 3s. 9d. to 4s. per bushel, and Maize (of which there is a plentiful supply) at 2s. 6d. Flour.—Although the millers have not yet disposed of any flour at lower rates than £13 per 2000 lbs. first quality, and £11 10s. for se- conds, they are not now so firm in demanding these prices as they have been for some time past. Hay is still scarce and fetching £4 10s. to £5 per ton. Cattle.—During the week the market has been plentifully supplied with fat cattle, and prices in consequence have receded a little. Among the sales eff...

Domestic Intelligence. TEETOTAL SOIREE. — The members of the Melbourne Total Abstinence Society held &nbsp; a meeting on Monday evening last at their hall &nbsp; in Russell-street, for the purpose of social enjoy- ment over the cup which cheers but not inebri- ates. The meeting was presided over by that &nbsp; veteran of teetotalism, Mr. F. McGregor, and was highly respectable both as to numbers and appearance. &nbsp; BAIL.—On Wednesday last, the pre- &nbsp; siding magistrates at the Police Office refused to accept bail for the appearance of four persons &nbsp; whom they had committed for robbery. Their &nbsp; Worships stated, that when the party committed was of known disreputable character, it would be &nbsp; &nbsp; injudicious to admit him to bail, as by doing so &nbsp; the ends of justice might be frustrated, and ex- pressed their determination to refuse bail to per- sons of bad repute. &...
