Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 9 June 1846

Domestic Intelligence. Petrel v. Jorrocks.—It was reported on Saturday that Petrel, the Port Phillip horse, was backed to run against Jorrocks on the Mel- bourne Race-course for two thousand guineas— such a challenge was given, and for the moment accepted ; but it was not confirmed on Saturday, according to agreement.—Sydney Morning Her- ald, June 1. Homebush Races.-Petrel the Port Phillip horse, did not run on the third day at the Homebush Races, having been withdrawn from the running for " The Australian Plate," the only race for which he was entered. So much for the value of the " private correspondence" which announced him as beaten ! Immigration.—It was reported in town yesterday, that the Home Government had determined to expend £3,000,000 on Immigra- tion to the British Colonies, and that our Irish brethren were to have Benjamin's portion, as a sop in the pan, to keep down their effervescent spirit. We by no means vouch for the correct- ness of the above rumour, neither can w...

THE ENGLISH WOOL MARKET. To the Editors of the Sydney Morning Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 12 June 1846

THE ENGLISH WOOL MARKET. To the Editais of the Sydney Morning ¡let aid. GENTLEMEN-The favourable views we expressed in our last nunual circular of the prospects of the wool trade were fully realised during the first six months of 1845. An extent of consumption pro- bably without precedent in the same I period of time was accompanied by an unusual steadiness of price and freedom from any appearance of speculation or over trading j and yet there has seldom been a period, within the elements of the trade so sound and promising, that re suited in so little profit to those engaged, whether importer, stapler, or manufac- turer. This we principally atlribute to the relative high price of the raw ma- terial. The early months of the year were marked by unusual activity. The pro- tracted winter gave an extension to the home trade, whilst the continental de ' maud, particularly from Germany was good. Some inconvenience was experi- enced by the export houses from the ! navigation continuing clo...

MELBOURNE POST-OFFICE. To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 12 June 1846

MELBOURNE POST-OFFICE. To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. SIR,-The gross irregularity obtain- ing in the Post-office department of this ?>rovince, more especially the disgrace ul carelessness (not to impute any other motive, or use stronger terms,) exhibited by those connected with the head depart- ment ia Melbourne, is such a growing evil, nnd one which affects the interests of the community at large, that to one who lins observed its workings, and felt its bad effects as I have done, longer silence on the subject might be charged to me ns a crime committed against the welfare of society. My opinion as to where the blame rests, I do no not at present intend to make public, although I have very strong suspicions as to who is the guilty party-but in those sus- picions I would certainly exonerate the acting-postmaster irom any culpable neglect, except, perhaps, the venial one of not looking a little more strictly after the proceedings of his subordinates in office. I will now pr...
