Benjamin, Harris and Marks, Dunlop, M'Nab and Co , Mr. Raleigh, Mr. Easy and Mr, Little ; had no book of daily receipts; never took stock; never estimated his profits but should think about 15 percent; for the last six months his weekly receipts average from £25 to £30 ; his expenses including rent £3 3s. ; two female servant one at...

The Argus. I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak, &nbsp; &nbsp; impugn it whoso list." FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 1849. " His Lordship observed that it had been now deter- mined that ticket of-leave men should be sent to New South Wales ; and that the next ship would take that class of con- victs to Port Phillip." Mr. Jackson's Letter. THE THREATENED POLLUTION. &nbsp; The above startling words are still ring- ing in the ears of every honest man in Port Phillip. They shall continue to do so. In our largest type, and at the head of our leading matter, shall they stand, till it is known finally, and distinctly, whether this cargo of scoundrels is to be forced upon us by a traitorous executive ; whether the inhabitants of this district are the set of slaves to allow their pro- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; sperity, their safety, their comfort, a...
Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 February 1849
Domestic intelligence. Mis-reporting—Some wag has &nbsp; &nbsp; been sporting with the rabid anxiety of our friend the Editor of the Daily News to get hold of anything which can be so distorted as to &nbsp; tell to the disadvantage of the Corporation, or, at all events of any save the few " yellow haired laddies" of our contemporary's adulation. The Public Works Committee recently called for ten- ders for the completion of certain improvements in Collins-street, between Swanston and Spring &nbsp; streets, which bad been ordered by the Council, and on receiving them, accepted of the tender oí Girvin and Roberts for £1,685, which was the lowest received. Subsequently a letter was received by the Committee from Stevens and Best, &nbsp; whose tender was only £31 higher, stating that they had made their tender on the supposition that the gravel for the foot-paths was to be taken from the vicinity of the Flag Staff, and if permitted to take the grav...

ROBBERY. &nbsp; William Moss, George Maynard, and Henry Somerset, were indicted for steal- ing on the 13th February, eight half crowns, twenty shillings, ten sixpences, six fourpenny pieces, eight threepenny pieces, and twelve pence , the property of Mr. William Picket, of the Salt Water River. One of the prisoners challenged four jurors, and at the request of another the witnesses were ordered out of court. This case is of such recent occurrence that the circumstances cannot have been forgotten ; two of the prisoners were V. D. Land expirees. Mrs. Picket proved that the three pri- soners came to the house kept by her hus- band at the Salt Water River punt. She &nbsp; had occasion to quit the hou...

Select Poetry. COMPLAINT OF THE CAGED PARROT. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 23 February 1849
Select Poetry. COMPLAINT OF THE CAGED PARROT. BY ANGUS MACKAY, (AN AUSTRALIAN.) How long in wretchedness, Here in this dismal place, Am I condemned to pine, sad and forlorn ? Back to my forest home, &nbsp; Rich in its verdant bloom, Let me go, where my comrades await my return. O'er forest and spreading plain, Once more to roam again, With happy companions, so blythesome and free; Feasting on honey flowers, Nestling in leafy bowers, Amid the tall gum-trees how happy I'd be ! Once more to see my mate, Watching, with eye elate, &nbsp; &nbsp; As gaily I carolled while journeying home ; Again know the fond caress, Endearments that ever bless, Back to my native wilds, Oh, let me roam ! By Wollondilly's tide, &nbsp; Oh ! again to abide. &nbsp; &nbsp; Raise the wild echoes with laugh and with song ; Gently to steal to rest, Close by our younglings' nest, While daylight fades slowly o'er distant Collong. Sweet would my slumbers be, From all en...

CORONER'S INQUEST. Monday, February 26th, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 February 1849
CORONER'S INQUEST. Monday, February 26th, 1849. An adjourned inquest was held at the George and Dragon, Lonsdale-etreet, touching tbe death of George Hudson, the unfortunate man who at- tempted to murder the Misses Ellis, and after such committed suicide under the circumstances detailed in the Argus of Friday, The inquisition was held before W. B. Wilmot, Esq., M.D., Coroner for tbe District and a jury of house- holders. The witnesses adduced, among whom were the sister and two brothers of the young women who were stabbed, corroborated the accounts which have already appeared, and no additional light was thrown upon the melancholy occurrence. The jury, after deliberating for half an hour, returned a verdict, that "the deceased George &nbsp; Hudson, while in a state of unsound mind, did discharge the contents of a certain pistol barrel, into his left side, from the effects of which he lin- gered a few hours and then expired,"

LONDON.—WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 February 1849
LONDON.—WOOL. Mr. Crookes has kindly favoured us with a sight of Messrs. Buckle and Co.'s letter, which contradicts the rumour said to have been brought by the Stag. They say, "Our next wool sales are fixed to commence on 16th November, with the prospect of prices being lower rather than higher than those in September. We are still without any continental demand for our manu- factures, and the home trade is far from active. Indeed when we may reasonably hope to see any improvement it is impossible to say, in the present unsettled state of Europe."—Launceston Examiner.
THE DISTRICT ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 February 1849
THE DISTRICT ELECTION. To-day the poll will be taken through- out the District for the election of a member of the Legislative Council in the room of James Williamson, Esq., re- signed. The contest rests between his Grace the Duke of Wellington and William Macarthur, Esq., of Camden, both alike strangers to the province, and alike inca- pable of representing it, but the "Iron Duke" has the grand qualification of being harmless, while the election of his opponent would but tie us faster to the iron wheel of the Sydney Juggernaut, and give added strength to the cheat of representation, under which we have been pillaged every succeeding session of the Legislative Council during the last five years. What can better illustrate the fallacy of Port Phillip representation in a Syd- ney Legislature than this state of things? In this matter, the Duke of Wellington is but a name, and it would have an- swered the same purpose if Honi Heki, the New Zealand savage, had been placed in nomination i...
DISTRICT PETTY SESSIONS. Thursday, Feb. 22. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 February 1849
DISTRICT PETTY SESSIONS. &nbsp; Thursday, Feb. 22. &nbsp; A District Court of Petty Sessions was held this morning at the police office.— The following magistrates were present : James Simpson, Esq., Warden of the District, chairman, James Smith, Charles Payne, and Sidney Stephen, Esqrs, and Doctor Fletcher. POUND FEES. Mr. Plaistowe brought under the no- tice of the bench the present system of paying pound fees, and prayed for a re- vision of the scale of charges. The bench decided on postponing the consideration of the matter till Saturday week, when a special meeting would be called of the district bench. FOOTSCRAY POUND. Mr. Robert Quinan was appointed keeper of the Footscray pound, vice Mr. John Price, resigned. WESTERN PORT POUND. An application was presented from Mr. Thomas Reece praying for the establish- ment of a pound in the Western Port District, and soliciting the office of poundkeeper. The application was most respectably signed by the squatters in the ...
VICE-RE[?]AL VISIT. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 February 1849
VICE-REGAL VISIT. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) &nbsp; His Excellency the Governor will embark, at Sydney, in H.M.S. Havannah on Wednesday, the 28th instant, for Port Phillip, on a visit to His Honor the Superintendent. We have not heard how long his Excellency contemplates being absent from Sydney, but we believe that it is at present intended that the Council shall be opened on the last Tuesday in April. &nbsp;
THE BUILDING SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 February 1849
THE BUILDING SOCIETIES. In resuming our calculations as to these societies, we find it necessary to enter upon ground, which is more slippery and debateable than that we have yet ven- tured upon. We refer to their probable duration, to the number of years which it may be expected will elapse before they are enabled to balance their accounts, to pay their numerous shareholders their £120 each, to return deeds and mort- gages, and dissolve themselves into their original elements, ready again to com- bine for their mutual advantage. Our calculations up to this point have been simple and certain enough, and we attach so much importance to the perfect accuracy of all such statements, that we would willingly have avoided any calculations which cannot be based upon dis- tinct and secure data, and which therefore, in spite of all our care, must be mat- ters of mere guess-work and conjecture. The progress of these societies in this district, has been so rapid and astonishing, that all calcul...
INSOLVENT COURT. Friday, February 23rd. (Before R. W. Po[?]lman, Esq., Chief Commissioner) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 February 1849
INSOLVENT COURT. Friday, February 23rd. (Before R. W. Pohlman, Esq., Chief Commis- sioner ) In re Philip Phillips.—This day was ap- pointed for hearing the arguments upon the evidence taken at former meetings. Mr. Cham- bers opposing the certificate ; Mr. Williams and Mr. Duerdin supporting the application. Mr. Chambers analysed the evidence in an address of considerable length, of which we can only give the main point. The grounds of oppo- sition set forth in the caveat were first, that in- solvent had not made a full and a fair disclosure and surrender of his estate and effects; second, that he had contracted debts without having at the time any reasonable expectation of being able to liquidate them ; third, that he had given an unjust preference to Messrs. Levy, Harris, and Marks to the detriment of the other creditors; fourth, that he had omitted to keep any account of receipts and payments. To these Mr. Chambers desired to add the following additional grounds which had arisen o...

" His Lordship observed that it had been now deter- mined that ticket of-Ieave men should be sent to New South Wales ; and that the next ship would take that class of con- victs to Port Phillip." Mr. Jackson's Letter. &nbsp; THE POLLUTION QUESTION. We refer our readers to the requisition for a public meeting which appears in another column, as abundantly testifying the unanimous feeling of indignation which pervades the whole community on the subject of Earl Grey's unspeakably infamous proposal to convert this noble province into a penal settlement. Never in the whole course of our expe- rience in public affairs have we found the people so completely of one voice and one mind in any matter. On former occasions, when the comparatively mode- rate scheme of Pentonvillain immigration was under consideration, though...
Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 February 1849
Domestic Intelligence. &nbsp; &nbsp; Pentonvillainy—The Portland folk who two or three years ago were petitioning the Government for participation in the blessings of Pentonvillainy are now desperately wroth because of their wishes being complied with. The Port- land Guardian lets out upon the subject in the following terms :— " The inhabitants of Portland &nbsp; and those of the surrounding districts have been &nbsp; attentively watching the progress of events in re- lation to their being supplied with emigrants, and they are certainly not prepared for a sudden influx of liberated prisoners. The people had asked of their parental government a fish, and just as they were holding out their hand thankfully to receive it, a serpent is presented for their acceptance!-' The government have had ship loads of then' gentry landed in Melbourne, and could not afford to spare a single man of their numbers; but now, forsooth, the Melbourne and Geelong Dom. beginn...
