The Argus. I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak, impugn it whoso list." TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 1849. POLLUTION—WITH A VENGEANCE. Scarcely had our ears been gladdened with the intelligence that the Eden,   recently arrived, had brought the last cargo of Pentonvillains which were to be let loose upon this province, when we receive through the medium of the official   correspondence of Mr. Jackson, the London agent of the colonists of Van Diemen's Land, the damning intelligence that the colony of New South Wales (Port Phillip included) is once more to be converted into a receptacle of British crime ; that under pretence of performing an acceptable   service to the inhabitants, the   colony is to be once more reduced to the degraded position of a penal settlement.   Mr. Jackson, in a letter to his constituents dated 6th October, says:  — Some convicts have a...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 20 February 1849

Domestic Intelligence. A Regular Thumpher. — Our Gee- long contemporary the Corio Chronicle reports Captain Fyans as stating on the hustings, at the   late nomination, that Mr. William Macarthur had been tried in the Council already, and had proved himself an active and most useful member, evincing, during the period, a friendly feeling to- wards the Port Phillip Distric. This is a most   outrageous untruth. Mr. William Macarthur never was a member of the Legislative Council either past or present; but it is due to Captain Fyans to state that he made no such assertion. The fabrication is our contemporary's own.   Emigration to Australia.—The North British Express says that about 1,000 emi- grants for the Australian colonies leave Plymouth   monthly. Amende.—We have to apologise for an error in our publication of the list of attend- ances at the City Council during the last quarter. The error consists of the omission of Councillor C...

Original Poetry. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—Should this meet your approbation, you are at liberty to publish it in your widely circu- lated journal, and by so doing you will greatly gratify the curiosity of Your obedient servant,     YOUNG FIFFY. Lower Murray, 1849. Folks say I'm a manly young cheil, And that I've got fine looking features;     All women I wish at the de'il, Those charming, bewitching, sweet creatures.   With one I did once fa' in love, And, Oh ! but she vow'd to be true ; But me she soon jilted " by Jove," And away from me quickly she flew. Right fal de lal, &c. The way that our courtship began, 'Twas I was a merchant in town ; Potatoes I sold, oats and bran, To a' the poor neebours aroun'. My fortune I got from my Dad, 'Twas five hunder bushels o' corn, An' I was a sprightly young lad, An' at all farming work I did scorn. Right fal de lal, &c. 'Twas in the race week I got fou', ...

Mathew Bourne, Esq, Surgeon Superintendent of the ship Thetis, deposed—The deceased was an immigrant under my charge from England to this Port; deceased when he came on board at Ply-   mouth was in a very debilitated state, the effects of previous long continued illness; I never ob- served anything peculiar in his mental condition, except that he was of a reserved, taciturn, and melancholy disposition ; I saw deceased when he wa...

Commercial Intelligence. VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 February 1849

Commercial Intelligence. VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. The time has now arrived when the husband- men can pretty well judge of the state of the crops, and the quality as well as quantity of the produce. We regret that in neither has the pro- mise of a few months since been fulfilled. The cold winds, followed by the excessive heat of Saturday week has done much to injure the quality of the wheat, while they have literally thrashed out much of the best grain, and com- mitted great devastation in the barley by breaking off the heads. In fact while the grain of the barley is in many places full, and a good malting sample, a considerable quantity is poor and steely, and in many of the best barley districts a full third is lying on the ground, useless except for the pigs to be turned into the stubble. Oats have yielded best, on an average this season, the grain being plump, and the crop above an average. Hay is abundant, the quantity in many districts having to be increased by the necessity of cutti...

TRANSFER OF RUNS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 February 1849

TRANSFER OF RUNS. A notice appearing in another column will apprise the Squatters in the settled districts that the Government has decided upon qualifying the various injuries that have lately been heaped upon them, by continuing the right of transfer as heretofore.—This is the first step to show that our rulers are beginning to despair of being able to withhold a right so long enjoyed, and which is so essential a portion of the squatting system, but from the careful wording of the notice and the concluding passage stating that the new rule refers only to the particular class of lands described, we fancy that a fight is still to be made, to withdraw the right of transfer from all other classes.

SUPREME COURT. (Before His Honor the Resident Judge.) Thursday, Feb. 22. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 February 1849

SUPREME COURT. (Before His Honor the Resident Judge.) Thursday, Feb. 22. Mr. Sidney Stephen applied on behalf of the sureties of Patrick M'Guinness for release from their recognizances. Granted. SENTENCES. James Buckley, convicted of assault and rob- bery was sentenced to five years hard labour on   the roads.     William Bromlow, convicted of a common assault at Geelong, was sentenced to be imprisoned for one fortnight. Joseph Hanson, convicted on a capital charge of rape, was sentenced to death. His Honor said the recommendation of the jury should be for- warded to tbe executive, but he felt it his duty to pass sentence of death. He exhorted the prisoner not to beguile himself with the hope that his life would be spared, for in all probability, as in two recent instances of a similar nature the law would be allowed to take its course. Callaghan M'Carthy convicted of a common assault, was sentenced to twelve months impri- sonment. Samuel Osboare for embezzling monies f...

BELFAST. (FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 February 1849

BELFAST. (From our own correspondent.) 'Our harvest has now begun in good   earnest, althoughríeapers are very scarce,   20s. per acre has been offered, and men   could not be obtained. On Thursday,     a man, while reaping, was bitten by a   snake, in the thigh, but by the skill   and prompt attendance of Dr. Ritchie   has recovered ; the next evening, Mr.   M'Cracken, Junior, feeling something creep up his leg, shook it, and on look-   ing down beheld a snake about three feet long, which after some little time, he killed. On Saturday, our Small Debts Court commenced ; the principal case was Alexander (Coast - waiter)   against Hill ; it appears the plaintiff is the friend of a young lady keeping school, who had rented a house from de- fendant, and prior to moving to it, had the Customs boats' crew white-washing it, which did not please the ...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 February 1849

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus.     Sir,—I find the "Melbourne" Squat- ters' Advocate,—as rabid as his brother of Geelong. Any arguments or statistics urged against the giant holders of the   Crown Lands, are according to these men, superfluous or noxious : and the deadly grasp made by these agitators, the self- seeking few of the squatters :—meets with the approval and support of the Gazette. Polites in Saturday week's issue, says,   treating of my proposition—"that the squatters should do as other classes have hitherto done—buy a freehold—or rent a   house of sufficient value "—and what would the tradesmen who rent shops in town say to the application of this doc- trine of purchase to themselves? Can any one understand what Polites means here.   Freehold of £200, or house of yearly   rental of £20 qualifies. I ask the squat-   ter, why he should claim exempt...

THE BUILDING SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 February 1849

THE BUILDING SOCIETIES. We have always shown ourselves the steady and consistent friends of the Building Societies, existing in this neigh- bourhood. We have reported their meet- ings, and chronicled their proceedings ; we have inserted their advertisements upon such reasonable terms, that we have been taunted with their cheapness, (a somewhat unusual thing with us, by the way) ; we have done all in our power to excite attention to their mode of work- ing, and the advantages they hold out for the investment of savings. To the working classes, particularly, we have appealed, pointing out how large an inte- rest these valuable societies are likely to pay ; how much better it is to invest a   portion of the ample wages they receive, in a mode which will place them in a good house of their own, than to fritter away large amounts in drunkenness or frivolity. The course we have adopted in the matter, has been dictated by a sincere wish for the welfare of the parties for whose...
