Domestic Intelligence. PUBLIC MEETING—THE DESTITUTE IRISH. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 8 September 1846

Domestic intelligence. PUBLIC MEETING - THE DESTITUTE IRISH. The adjourned public meeting of the inhabi- tants convened for the purpose of devising means for the relief of the destitute Irish was held in the Royal Hotel, on Friday. The meeting was very thinly attended, scarcely a dozen people being in attendance. The Mayor being again absent Mr. Councillor McCombie was called to the chair and apologetic letters were read from his Worship and the Town Clerk, the former excusing his attend- ance, on the score of indisposition, and the latter on account of his public avocations. It appeared that nothing whatever had been done since the former meeting, that no collectors had been appointed, nor any effort made towards the object of the meeting, there was consequently nothing to report, but that about twenty pounds had been received, the whole of which had been obtained at the former meeting but three or four pounds sent in from the country. Councillor 0'Shaughnessy (himself the first re...

DR. LEICHHARDTS LECTURES. LECTURE II. DELIVERED at the School of Arts, Sydney, on Tuesday, August 25. [Continued from our last.] [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 11 September 1846

DR. LEICHHARDTS LECTURES. LECTURE II, Delivered at the School of Arts, Sydney, on Tuesday, August 25. ' [Continued from our last.] The oppossums and flying squirrels seemed to disappear to the northward, or were at least so silent at night that we became rarely aware of their presence. On the Upper Burdekin, on the Lynd and Mitchell, the ring tailed opossum (Pha langista Cookii) was caught, and at Port Essington oppossums and sugar squirrels (Petaurus sciures) had been very numer- ous according to Captain Macarthur, but had now almost disappeared. The ban- dicoot (perameles nasuta,) was occasion- ally seen and killed as far as the Lynd, where it used to come at night into our camp. The native cat (dasyurus maugei) was very numerous along the Upper Lynd, and frequently visited our larder when it contained fresh game. Most useful to us were two species of flying fox (pteropus), a small one with a bright fox-coloured neck, and a larger one of a generally dark colour. These animals were...

THE OREGON QUESTION. (From the Times, 18th April.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 11 September 1846

THE OREGON QUESTION, (From the Times, I8Í/1 April. ) We publish in anothei place an extract | from a speech deliveied by Mr. Calhoun, ' on tile 16th of March, in the Senate of the United States, which reflects the greatest credit on that eminent statesman, and does honor to the assembly in which it was de- livered. The progress made by the Ore- gon question during the last two years has convinced Mr Calhoun himself of the ira - possibility of persevering in that silent and inactive course of policy which he had hitherto recommended as the surest me- thod of establishing the ultimate sove- reignty of the United States in that terri- tory. He has been driven from that ground to the alternative of supporting a compromise, or of declaring for a forcible occupation of the country ; and whilst he cordially adopts the principle of compro- mise, he votes for the abrogation ot the existing convention, in order to bring the discussion to a speedy termination. Thus far we are perfectly agreed ...

LAW COSTS. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 11 September 1846

LAW COSTS, (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) The late application of Mr. Brewster to the Supreme Court, for leave tj relinquish his rank as a barrister, and to practice in the colony as an attorney,-the judgment thereupon,-and the subsequent letter of our correspondent P. Conscriptus, have, in connexion with our own observations, and our experience as suitors, setup upon a further consideration of the interesting and very important subject of law reform. Until Mr. Erewster's application was made, we had been always of opinion that the division of the Bar from the other branch of the profession had been not only authorised by the colonial Judges, and confirmed at home, but that such authority had been exercised ac- cording to law ; and although we have always felt doubtful as to the policy of fastening upon young and poor com- munities the highly artificial and expen- sive system which has called down the condemnation of enlightened men in rich England itself; yet still, whilst it wa...

The nppeal waa as follows : TO THE GENEROUS PUBLIC OF MEL- BOURNE.

To the Editor of the Melbourne Ar¡ui. Sir-This railroad mania in New South Wale», will cause a question at home, I fear, of the soundness of out policy in attempting so costly an undertaking. We have but just emerged from almost a state of general bankruptcy, and we begin to talk largely of the great streugth of our coflers. Now, Mr. Editor, I suppose our directors a« dependant greatly on British shareholders, but I think they will overshoot their mark-for people at home have been too well gulled, to beguiled by the people here. No, no-they will think w queer folk at the antipodes ; insolvent ono d and then boasting of our riches the next. I» Sir, take no precedent from the people of Sydn Our friends at Geelong had better look at hoi than go so far a-field as these railroad ideas woi ead them. To the Geelongites I would say- J mend your ways; drain your town-I do not mean of honest men, you cannot spare them but of the filthy stagnated water that remains a «.eater portion of the yea...

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 11 September 1846

To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Sin-The want of police magistrates through the interior of this District, is a crying evil, and daily complaint of every squatter in Port Phillip. Insolence and insubordination amongst the shep- herds and bullock-drivers, on every station, is the order of the day. You need only find fault when the coat of the ruffian is thrown off, with an in- vitation-prefaced with the coarsest of all lan- guage-to fight, or n threat to thrash. The law offers protection ! '1 rue ! but the law in this country, so far as the squatter is concerned, is something like the knowledge of fresh water in the River Thames, to a shipwrecked man on the Equator ; both being pretty nearly as easily obtainable. The value and wholesome effect of the law, depends not only upon the wisdom exhibited in its administration, but in punishment following crime as speedy as possible. Now, how I ask fares the hapless squatter ? I need not stop to enquire how far wisdom is established by ...
