LATEST FROM SYDNEY, [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] Sydney, Sept. 4, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 11 September 1846
LATEST FROM SYDNEY, [from our own CORRESPONDENT.] Sydney, Sept. 4,1846. As the Legislative Council meets for the despatch of business on Tuesday next 8th instant, those who take an interest in the political affairs of the Colony, are anx- iously looking forward to that day, with the expectation of ascertaining from his Excellency's opening speech the line of policy he has been instructed to adopt relative to the important question of Crown Lands occupation. It can scarcely be expected that at this late period of the year, with the estimates before them, members will venture to moot this and other equally weighty matters, but tha* they will rather allow them to stand over till next year, so as to enable Sir Charles not only to inform himself fully as to the leal state of our colonial affairs, but to come to some matured decision with re- gard to the measures on which the future prospects of the colony depend. At pre- sent his Excellency is very popular. A great number of addresses ha...

THE RETURNING EXILE. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 11 September 1846
THE RETURNING EXILE. My native land ! soon shall I see Again-dear Scotia's hills', and thee ! &nbsp; But fate's dark clouds have o'er me cast Deep shadows since I saw thee last. ' i Thy. hills and dales are all as fair As when vl gayly/ sported there ; Each well remember'd flower and tree Still bloom in glorious rivalry. They may attract my listless eye, And from this bosom draw the uigh, Yet never can restore to me Joys past-deep, deep in memory. Still let me go-it matters not Where now may be my future lot, But I would yield my latest breath In thesamelaud which gave me birth. Though no kind heart, no friendly hand Shall greet me in my Fatherland All are estrang'd, or lost to me, By death or bitter destiny. Yet, oh ! there is a glorious hour, When these shall both resign their power í Then face to face, with joy, we'll see ; Each other in Eternity !

jBomestic ïntcllífjcncc. The Magistracy.-We venture to say the refusal of Mr. Reny Olurke's application for a pubhcun's general license at the Court of Petty Sessions for the District, on Tuesday, is without ^a parallel even in the history of the arbitrary pro ceedingsofour loenl magisiracy under the vcryar-* bitrnry powers given'them by the Licensing Act.' Mr. Clarke came before the bench with the cer- tifícate of the Court i self as to his fitness to hold a wine and beer license, and he was armed with a testification'of "the opinion of1 a' larger number of the licencing magistrates of the District thnn the court was composed of, not only as to the' fit-t ness of the applicant for the indulgence hecraved; but also as'to its being wanted. Under such cir- cumstances,'we should have thought common' courtesy would have demanded that some respect should be paid to the magistrates who had signi- fied their opinion in the matter by granting! the certificate, and as it was not we mustsay w...
