To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 22 September 1846
To the Editor of the Melbourne Argus. Sir,-I observe, from your last publication, that the office of Solicitor to the Corporation of Melbourne has been bestowed upon Mr. Francis John Sidney Stephen, the last admitted of the Solicitors of the Supreme Court of this province. I know nothing to the disparagement of Mr. Stephen, but as he is as yet, comparatively speak- ing, a mere boy, and utterly without experience, I must say I look upon his election as one of the most disgruceful "jobs" that has ever been at- tempted since the institution of the Corporation, and I conceive it to be your duty to inform the public who the members of council are who have wnntonly sacrificed the interests of their consti- tuents by electing such a man to such an office. I am, &c, A CITIZEN. Melbourne, 19th September, 1846. ['Ihe voters for Mr. Stephen were three in number-his uncle, Mr. Councillor Stephen, and the two candidates for his uncle's vote, Mr. Alderman Greevcs mid Mr. Councillor M'Com ...
