Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 16 February 1849

Domestic Intelligence. The German Immigrants.— We are glad to hear that a very great number of applications have been made for the engagement of the passengers by the Godeffroy. It must be also a matter of congratulation to all parties disposed to   encourage a class of immigrants likely to be so useful, to learn that the main body of the Germans are highly satisfied with the appearance of Port Phillip, and the prospects presented to them in the district, and that an almost unanimous feeling prevails amongst them to remain here, in preference to proceeding to the " terra incognita " of South Australia. We need not enlarge upon the effect which such a course would have upon intending Immigrants, who may be wait- ing for the report of this first importation. The Committee appointed for their re- ception proceed on board this morning for the purpose of facilitating engagements, and as the list of pursuits is exceedingly numerous we trust that they may all be induced to rem...

Select Poetry. LINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 16 February 1849

Select Poetry. LINES. Say, E—a, why has melancholy shed Its dark'ning shadow o'er thy plaintive song. Has peace of mind, then, from thy bosom fled, Can hope no more, life's sweetest dream pro- long? Say, have deep thoughts, within thy bosom dwelling, Given to thy muse a sad'ning tone, Thy verse almost unconsciously revealing Those feelings known to favoured hearts alone ? 'Twas thus with one who tenderly has sung, Whose verses chain us with a magic spell;   But she alas, is gone ; her lyre's unstrung ; Her short career is run, lost L. E. L. Or has some faithless wooer won thy love, And hast thou given him that rich prize, Trusting that his heart, like thine might prove, Ardent with that pure faith, which never dies? And have the hopes which thou hast fondly cherished, By his withering coldness been dispelled ; And has the fond bawl's pu'se, affection perished, And sadness filled the breast which joy once held? Then if 'tis thus, I know how much you feel, For blighted lo...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 16 February 1849

Domestic Intelligence. Masonic.—It is reported amongst the 'fraternity' that Captain Innes has been appointed D. P. G. M. of the Masonic Lodges of Australia, working under the constitution of England. The gallant Captain's commission is expected to arrive by the October packet.—Bell's Life in Sydney. Educational.—We observe by an ad- vertisement which appears in another column, that Mr. James Glen has been appointed Teacher of the school, in con- nexion with the Wesleyan Chapel, Collins- street, which was formerly under the charge of Mr. Hinton. Mr. Glen is the son of the Rev. Dr. Glen, resident Mis- sionary at Teheran, the capital of Persia, whose translation of the Scriptures into the Persian language, and his long and arduous efforts for the conversion of the Heathen, have gained him an European celebiity. Mr. Glen has himself travelled throughout the East, and having received a first-rate education at the Universities of Edinburgh and St. Andrews he is abundantly qualified to in...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—As I was prevented by the rather unu- suai occirrence of the mover flooring his tvjfl motion, from speaking on the question v*B Town Hall site on Thursday last, I must roa»B you to afford me space to undeceive your con- temporaries, who are assailing me as either the originator or prime mover, in the selection of the site which is giving them so much offence.     I am a supporter of the proposition fixing upon that site, and I was the seconder of the motion founded upon the report of the Public Works Committee which recommended it, but I rnoo!) so because I am in the minority as to the iii« I   consider the best, and because I coincide with the majority in thinking the site selected infinitely preferable to the half acre allotment at the corner of Swanston and Collins Streets, on which it has been proposed to bury a building which ought to be an ornament to the city.

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,— Your few, not uncalled for, remarks regarding tho Savings' Bank, in your Supplement of this afternoon recalls to my mind that the Saving»' Bank in Launceston is open every business day from eight o'clock in the morning till eight o'clock at night, during the whole of which time deposits may be made ; Mr. Dowling, bookseller, manages it for, I believe, £100 a year. In Hobart Town   there are two Savings' Banks similarly conducted. And were the Melbourne Savings' Bank kept open the whole of every business day, and it might, and I think ought, for £250 a-year, many a pound would be saved which is now spent, as the following incident will illustrate. Being in Annand, Smith, and Co's shop on a Thursday, some few months ago, a bushman, apparently a shepherd, called enquiring for the Savings' Bank. The shopman pointed it out, at the same time remarking, " it is shut at present." Shepherd—When will it be open ? Shopman—...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 February 1849

ENGLISH NEWS. The Standard publishes intelligence of Captain Sir James Ross's Arctic expedi- tion, down to the 12th of July, in the shape of a letter from a gentleman who was with the expedition. " 'Tis a block game with us at present. We are now fast to an iceberg off Upper- navic, a Danish settlement, in latitude 70° North. A barrier of pack ice prevents us from making any further progress to the Northward. The weather here is remark- ably fine—the thermometer ranging from 50 to 60 degrees. " The whalers are all gone to the South- ward, with the exception of one ship, which is to beat about amongst the ice about twenty miles to the Northward of us. " We have had communications with the following ships—True Love, of Hull, with four fish ; Lady Jane, of Shields, with four fish ; Alexander, of Dundee, with three fish ; Horn, of Dundee, with four fish, and Joseph Green, of Peter- head, with five fish.

THE COMING ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 February 1849

THE COMING ELECTION. The non-election principle is now, we sincerely believe, the political faith of the   province. The fallacy of representation, so clearly developed at the general elec- tion, is now demonstrated beyond dis- puting by the issue of that struggle, and the result of the late nomination at Geelong. Nor, attached as men naturally are even to the name of representation, is it wonderful that it should be so. Past experience has shewn, that even when represented by the best and ablest men, Port Phillip is powerless in a Sydney Legislature, and acceptance of the shadow of representation for the reality is, there- fore, a mockery, a delusion, and a snare, valueless to the community, and decidedly injurious in its effects, as leading the Home Government and public to regard us as in possession of free institutions, and affording to the New South Wales Government and Legislature a pretext for plundering us at will. But there are some among us who, going the full...

THE SAVINGS' BANK. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 February 1849

THE SAVINGS' BANK. We are glad to find from a letter in another column, and from the remark we hear on all sides, that our observa- tions upon the management of the Sa- vings' Bank have excited some attention. A strong feeling of disgust is everywhere   expressed at the inordinate greediness and the unblushing impudence which could grasp at an increase of twenty-five per cent. upon an already large salary in the very same year which had wit- nessed a diminution of nearly one per cent. interest, upon the funds of the de- positors. In the innocence of our hearts we have always been accustomed to fancy that these latter, the depositors, were the parties for whose benefit these institu- tions were designed, and that providing comfortable quarters for an official, was a matter of secondary consideration. We have ever entertained certain wild, Quixotic ideas, that much good was done amongst our humbler classes, by ena- bling and inducing them to put by a por- tion of their ea...
