Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 February 1849
Domestic Intelligence. &nbsp; &nbsp; Impounding Charges. — The local pounds seem to be made use of in some in- stances, as the means of desperate extortion. We have now before us a case of the kind in which a herd of 350 cattle on their way to the Melbourne market, which had merely strayed on the unenclosed land on the road side during the few minutes the driver had gone into the Inn to take some necessary refreshment, were driven off to the Pentridge pound, and though re- leased a few hours afterwards the owner had to pay charges to the extent of £8 15s, being £1 2s 4d for pound fees, £3 16s 4d sustenance, and £3 16s 4d for trespass. There was literally no damage sustained by the trespass, for the land is unenclosed, and not a blade of edible grass growing, and the sustenance the cattle received while in the custody of the poundkeeper was merely the liberty of luxuriating over the process of chewing the cud. In such a case a pound note would have amply compensated a...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Melbourne, February 24th, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 February 1849
Original Correspondence To the Editor of the Argus. Melbourne, February 24th, 1849. Sir,-Since reading in the Argus of Tuesday, your notice concerning the infamous determina- tion of Government, to convert our fair province into a convict colony, the subject has much en- grossed my thoughts. As a mother I feel deeply, and urgently deprecate the approach of the un- numbered evils which must result from such an iniquitous measure. To every parent at all concerned about the &nbsp; welfare of his children, this intelligence is indeed alarming. Who can see with indifference the floodgates of corruption thus opened upon us and our offspring? Who of us can resignedly con- &nbsp; template the polluted atmosphere, the withering curse, the unmitigated horrors of convict popula- tion to be thrust upon us ? We cannot and we will not submit to it. Think of the terrific amount of depravity in all its most hideous forms, that will be presented to the eyes and ears of our children! ...
COUNTRY NEWS. (FROM OUR BELFAST CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 2 March 1849
COUNTRY NEWS. (from our BELFAST correspondent.) The last week has been one continual scene of accidents and offences. On Tuesday evening the house of Mr. Pye, an industrious farmer, near this town, was entirely consumed by fire ; it appears Mrs P. was putting a child to bed, and had given the candle to another child to hold, who let it fall against the bed curtain which immediately ignited, and the fire soon caught the thatch ; it was with difficulty the poor woman could save her children, and in her endeavours to put the fire out had her hands dread- fully burned. The loss sustained by this poor family cannot be less than £150. On Thursday evening the mail from &nbsp; Warrnambool was robbed. It appears &nbsp; the mailman was not sober, and his horse being taken ill, he placed it in a stable laying the saddle and mail-bags on the ground ; on arriving at the Post Office on the Friday morning the registered letters were found to be torn up and the contents gone ; the m...

CROWN LANDS REGULATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 2 March 1849
CROWN LANDS REGULATIONS. A series of very important despatches appears in the Sydney Morning Herald, relative to the new Squatting Regula- tions. The despatches are too long for insertion in our present number. The gist of the matter is, that a circuit of ten miles round both Belfast and Warrnam- bool is to be brought within the settled districts ; that compensation for im- provements is to be allowed within the settled districts, both to squatters em- ploying the land for pastoral purposes, and also to those occupying inns, stores, &c. ; that Earl Grey conceives a some- what superficial system of survey suffi- cient for the purpose of granting leases, and that where a more accu- rate charting may be required the expense may fairly be thrown upon the squatters. We will publish the de- spatches in our next.
Commercial Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 2 March 1849
Commercial Intelligence. On Monday last the wool (about 1000 bales) which was landed from the Hero, after having been submerged for several days, was offered for sale by auction, for the benefit of the underwriters. There was a very large attendance of buyers, among whom we recognised a number of Mel- bourne merchants. The biddings commenced very spiritedly, and the lots were knocked down at much higher prices than were expected to be given. &nbsp; The wool did not appear to have suffered much &nbsp; from its immersion; and although it had com- menced heating, after being landed, the progress of the deterioration was soon stopped, by cutting the bales and exposing the wool to the air. The prices realized were, in some instances, very high, some lots reached to 7½d per lb. The average of &nbsp; the whole sale was £4 7s 6d per bale, or about 4½d per lb. The total proceeds were nearly £4000. &nbsp;

THE DISTRICT ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 2 March 1849
THE DISTRICT ELECTION. The result of Tuesday's election deter- mines beyond dispute, the fact that the non-election principle is the political faith of Port Phillip, and that however a few sycophantic adherents of the Go- vernment (like the soul-less slaves at Geelong who sold their birth-right for Mr. La Trobe's paltry mess of pottage) may struggle and strive, the voice of the great body of the people, and of nearly three-fourths of the electors is for spurn- ing the cheat which imposes upon us the shadow for the substance. Out of the 236 electors in the Metro- politan county, only three recorded their votes in favour of actual election on Tuesday, for though there were five cards handed in, one was from a Geelong elector, and another, the immortal " Buggins" himself, was an impostor voting upon a qualification he was not possessed of. At Geelong, the very hot- bed of the actual electionists, the com- bined force of Captain Fyans' personal interest, and the badgering of the local p...

LETTER II. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 2 March 1849
LETTER II. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir—Polites charges me with " revo- lutionary views leading directly to the confiscation of the property of the country." This I deny altogether, and I ask any dispassionate person, if my words will bear such a vile charge. I state that 20 persons have monopolised 3,000,000 and a quarter of acres amongst them, this land they have taken what they call possession of. How have they taken this hold of the land, upon what right do they claim these vast estates ? Simply by ordering their serfs to drive some sheep, or cattle, upon these fine fields ; and they drive over a large extent of country, merely to have it to say, oh my stock fed from such a hill over to such a marsh. Thereforeall the intermediate bounds are mine—they do not take as many acres as they have sheep—or cattle for, they do not, (these great holders,) say every head &nbsp; of sheep requires say 3 acres, and every &nbsp; head of cattle 8 acres, therefore, my herd &...

Domestic Intelligence. Libel.—Mr. Councillor Rankin has taken the preliminary steps for bringing an action for libel against the publisher of tbe Daily News, who for some time back bas been literally revel- ling in unmeasured abuse of the worthy Coun- cillor, and certain of his associates in the munici- pality. Unlike the defendant in this action, it gives us no pleasure to hear of a brother of the broad sheet getting involved in the meshes of the libel law, and we should scorn ourselves, and expect to be scorned by the community if we were capable of imitating him in bounding on such a prosecution, but in this case we feel but small commiseration, for the libel is atrociously false, and though the subject to which it refers, was one upon which our contemporary could only have hearsay evidence, he has chosen to give the lie to &nbsp; the public and official denial of the parties con- cerned, and is, therefore, no doubt prepared to &nbsp; stand the consequences. Mr. R...
