THE BUILDING SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 2 March 1849

THE BUILDING SOCIETIES. Having now entered pretty fully into the question of the duration of these interesting societies, we will return for a moment to the calculations contained in our first article upon the subject, as to their probable profits to a borrower. We wish to impress upon our readers that the statements there presented to them are scarcely as favorable as in justice they should be. We have shewn that in the event of a society running out in eight years, and the rate of interest upon the capital subscribed or received being taken at 10 per cent., there would be a loss of £77 11s. 9d. upon the transaction; and at 15 per cent., a loss of £11 11s 1d; 20 per cent. would show a balance on the other side of £91 8s 6d; and 25 per cent. would yield a profit of £245 17s 4d We stated that we had good reason to believe that many properties might be purchased at such a rate as to yield even this rate, and many instances have been presented to us of still larger returns from house p...

Original Poetry. ELEGY [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 2 March 1849

Original Poetry. ELEGY On the calamitous and lamented death of Alfred Otter Montagu, Esq., aged 45 years, of Van Diemen's Land, Brarister at Law, who was drowned, and with him his boat-steerer, in the River Derwent, sailing from Rosny, late the residence of his brother, Mr Justice Montagu,   towards Hobart Town, in a fearful gale of wind, January 8. Deep is the sigh, and mournful is the strain, A friend's decease must of the muse demand.   When ripe in age, 'tis impious to complain Of man's removal from a World of pain— Survivors' herald to a " better land." But how is sorrow into anguish wrought By the catastrophe, which all deplore; Where may such pure intelligence be sought ? Such manly virtue, intellectual thought ? Friends ! orphans ! ! widow ! ! ! grief to the heart's core. Yet whilst we mourn and grieve as Christians may, At private lots, and public, of a friend ; Whilst we lament this awful fatal day, In which the Derwent snatched the soul away, Of ...

INSOLVENT COURT. (Before R. W. Pohlman, Esq., Chief Commissioner.) MONDAY, FEBRUARY 26. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 2 March 1849

INSOLVENT COURT. (Before R. W. Pohlman, Esq., Chief Commissioner.) Monday, February 26. In re John Augustus Manton.—Mr. J Moor examined the insolvent on his own account as a creditor. He stated in sub- stance, that for about two months past he resided at Collingwood, but formerly occupied a house in Lonsdale-street ; his brother Mr. Charles Manton occupies an adjoining house on the land, another brother, Henry, purchased from Mr. Walker, of Sydney ; the house was one purchased from Mr. Moor by Charles Manton with Henry Manton's money; Charles became insolvent on 18th July, 1848. After he sold some sheep (the date insolvent could not recollect, as he kept no books for the last five years) he re- ceived from his brother £280, and applied that sum to the payment of certain debts and house expenses. The examination then turned upon the Survey of the Yarra, which it appeared was undertaken by in- solvent and Mr. Garrard in partnership as Manton and Garrard. Henry Manton advanced £60 as a...

The Argus. I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and therefore the truth 1 speak, impugn it whoso list." FRIDAY, MARCH 2, 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 MONSTER MEETING. The excitement upon the subject which is to result in the meeting of next Tues- day, appears rather to increase than the reverse. The requisition published in our last will bear comparison with any document of that nature that was ever signed in this district,and we are justified in stating that the signatures of nineteen twentieths of the adult males of the province might have been obtained, had time allowed. But the requisition as signed was amply sufficient, it was thoroughly demonstrative of the universal condemna- tion of this most atrocious proposal, and it was necessa...

MAURITIUS PRICE CURRENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 6 March 1849

MAURITIUS PRICE CURRENT. Wheat and Flour.—The quantities of Doodah   lately imported have tended to lower prices—3 30 —3 35 have been accepted A cargo from the   Red Sea was put up for sale, the offers were very low, from 1 80—2 15, at which rates it was withdrawn. The Tenasserim from Launceston came in yes- terday, her cargo has not yet been offered for sale. As nothing has been done in flour for some time   past, it is difficult to fix quotations. Several hundred bags have arrived from the Cape, but air not yet sold. Oats are disposed of with diffi- culty at 1 60—1 65 without any chance of im- provement. Animals—Oxen and sheep have continued to arrive from Port Natal and the Cape; the former having realized 27 50—28, and lastly, only   17 91. The latter have varied f om 3 75—-4 50.       For the present the market is well stocked from abroad, but the reserve of Creole slaughter oxen is small...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—Supposing that Mr. Ogilvy's ad- vertisement in your last issue, concerning his removal from the office of Solicitor to the Australia Felix Building Society, may be held by some members to convey a censure on the Committee that removed him, I have to request room simply to state, that such power of removal is entrusted to the Committee by Rule 5, and that, in this case, it was a sense of their duty to the members of the Society, to lessen their individual expenses, that alone influenced them to decline the farther services of Mr. Ogilvy, contrary to their almost unanimously expressed feeling, and to approve of the lowest tender they thought it prudent and safe to accept. ONE OF THE COMMITTEE.   Melbourne, March 2, 1849.
