BURNING OF THE HERO. (From the Geelong Advertiser, Feb. 15.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 16 February 1849
BURNING OF THE HERO. &nbsp; &nbsp; (From the Geelong Advertiser, Feb. 15.) A most sudden and unlooked for catastrophe has occurred in our harbour The barque Hero, which was full of wool, and nearly ready for sea, being on the point of clearing outwards, was dis- covered to be on fire, and after many persevering but abortive efforts had been made to extinguish &nbsp; the flames she was, in accordance with the re- commendation of the captains of the other vessels &nbsp; in harbour—scuttled and sunk at her anchorage. The particulars of the catastrophe are as follow: &nbsp; Early on Tuesday morning, some labourers on &nbsp; board the Hero, suspected the wool in the after part of the vessel had becorre ignited. Informa- tion of these suspicions was immediately commu- &nbsp; nicuted to the captain and officers of the ship, when a close examination took place, the result of which was that a boat was despatched from the ship to Messrs....

GEELONG POLICE. &nbsp; Tuesday, 13th February. &nbsp; Before the Police Magistrate, and captan Fyans. &nbsp; Three of the Chinese or Kling immigrants, im- ported some months since by the Phillip Laing appeared under the following circumstances :— Mr Aitcheson, their importer, and present em- ployer, stated, that he appeared there in conse- quence of the men then in Court having left the station, and stated as their reason for doing so that they had been sworn at by him, and that the expectations with which they had left their own country, had not been realised ; on the contrary he had taken them under his own immediate guidance,and finding them incapableof shepherd- ing, had put them hut keeping, in which capacity they were altogether useless, as they would nei- &nbsp; ther cook nor shift the yards. The Malays not understanding English, Captain Fyans then un- &nbsp; &nbsp; dertook to interpret for them, and after hearing &nbsp;...

MR. WENTWORTH'S LAST. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 16 February 1849
MR. WENTWORTHS LAST. &nbsp; (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) When William of Orange landed in England, surrounded by poor, eager, and expectant German courtiers, he was of course welcomed in crowds by the Eng- lish people, who largely assembled to receive the new monarch. The King, in imperfect English, acknowledged their loyalty in terms, of which we were for- cibly reminded, on reading the Went- worth lottery notice. "Thank you, my good people, thank you ; we have come over here for your good ; we have come over for all your goods." Such appears to be the mixed intention of our Colonial William. He is going to hold a lottery for our good ; and if possible for all our goods. Such astonishing benevo- lence may excite the admiration of the twenty-three,* but for our own parts, and for the interests of the working classes, we have a few preliminary objections to make. In the first place, we detest gambling, and, as it seems self-evident from the notice in question, that nothi...
INSOLVENT COURT. Monday, February 12th. Before R. W. Pohlman, Esq., Chief Commissioner. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 16 February 1849
INSOLVENT COURT. Monday, February 12th, Before R. W. Pohlman, Esq., Chief Commissioner. In re Isaac Lazarus Lincoln , first meeting for proof of debts. No creditors proved in consequence of what transpired &nbsp; in the case in the Supreme Court on Sa- &nbsp; turday. It was consented to day that the goods should be sold, and the proceeds placed to the joint account of Messrs. Graham (the official assignee) and Mr. Benjamin, until his Honor the Resident Judge had decided the points to be argued before him. It was suggested that Messrs Tennent and Co., would not sell without &nbsp; authority from the Commissioner. Mr. &nbsp; Duerdin thought the Commissioner would not put his hand to paper, as they were advised to contend, and did contend, that he had nothing to do with the matter, and that the assignee was the party alone who had authority to act. Commissioner—Probably an intimation of what has taken place to day going forth in the usual way in the jour...
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 16 February 1849
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—I am extremely well pleased to observe that you are opposed to the absurd proposal of the Town Council, to make ap- plication for a piece of ground at the top of Bourke-street, as a site for the Town &nbsp; Hall. The idea of the Council flying off to the suburbs of the City is so ridiculous, that it would only be laughable, to think of the extra labour they would thereby entail on themselves, were it not that, as you have observed, this matter involves a considera- tion of too grave and extended importance, to be treated as a trifle, or allowed to be decided by the whim of a few of our ' present' Councillors. This matter affects the perpetual future convenience of the citizens of Melbourne, and it is their business and duty to move in the affair, and to determine, where the proposed building ought to be placed. Aye ! and had it been any place on earth but Melbourne, dull, apathetic Melbourne, they would have expressed...

THE BLACK LIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 16 February 1849
THE BLACK LIST. From the list presented yesterday to the City Council, referring to the attend- &nbsp; ance of the members of that body, for the last quarter, we have compiled the following analysis. It is well worthy the careful consideration of the burgesses and will serve more fully to impress upon them a fact of which many of them have proved themselves to be aware, that it is not the most showy or most plausible candidate that makes the most useful councillor. Among the gentlemen figuring most respectably upon the an- nexed list there are some who have been assailed by our contemporaries in the grossest and most virulent terms. The mode they have taken to rebut the abuse they have received, by a steady and consistent performance of their duties, is at once dignified and effectual, and will no doubt produce a due inpres- sion upon the minds of their constituents. Analysis of Returns of attendances at the several meetings of the Council and Committees, which were convened...
