Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 25 September 1846

Domestic Intelligence 'TOWN ALLOTMENTS.-Applications have been made by various parties, to the Survey Office, for thirty allotments in the Town of Mel- bourne to be put up for sale by public auction, and it is understood that the applications have been approved of, and that so soon as the pre- liminary steps have been complied with they will be brought to the hammer.           FELLING TIMBER.-Within the last few days sad havoc has been made amongst the trees between Spring-street and St. Peter's Church, on the Eastern Hill. By what right this destruction is being effected, we are not aware,but it would be as well if the parties who use the timber, should be required to take up the stumps, for be-, sides being rather inconvenient for travellers after night-fall, the expense of removing them here- after will fall upon the Corporation. The Town Council and the Commissioners of' Crown Lands have both jurisdiction in the ma...

SHIPWRECK. DESPATCH FROM MR. GLADSTONE. Downing-street, 4th Jannuary, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 29 September 1846

SHIPWRECK. DESPATCH FROM MR. GLVDSTONE. Downing-street, 4th Jannuary, 1846. Sir,-rMy attention has been called to the reports which have reached this coun- try of the circumstances attending the loss of the ship MARY in Bass's Straits, on her voyage from Sydney to Eng- land. I am aware that the Government are not in any degree íesponsible for the circumstances which'are stated to have attended that disastrous event. Vessels sailing from New South Wales do not fall within the provisions of the Passen- gers' Act, which, moreover, could not nave reached the. case of the MARY, as she is described as having on board no mote than ten emigrants. The occurrence, however, of a misfor- tune of this nature suggests the question, whether it would not be advisable that you should, under the authority con- veyed by the 18th clause of the Passen- gers' Act, propose to the Legislative Council of New South Wales to pass an enactment declaring the provisions of the Act to apply to vessels sailing fro...

Council on Wednesday, and pub- lished in our journal of yesterday, whilst it confirms the favourable impression al- ready produced by the mild andjudicious tone ot his replies to addresses, and of his Messages to the Council, encourage the hove that he will prove a good man of business. The Minutes of his predecessor were by no means wanting in ability ; but-neither were they wanting in that îedundancy of amplification b} which both his papers and his speeches were Ssually (characterised. Volubility was ir George's fault-a fault which offi- cial'men, in matters of official business, ought studiously to shuu. Our present Governor appeals to be well awaie of this. His Messages seem to have been compressed into the nailowest possible compass, and weeded of every superfllous word. In their grammatical structure,...

DIED. At sea, on the 5th May, ult, 150 miles distant from the Land's End, the Rev. James Dredge, late Wesleyan Missionary, at Geelong, and for- merly Assistant Protector of Aborignes in this district, and a magistrate of the territory. Mr. Dredge's health which was considerably impaired before he left Port Phillip, gradually improved during the early part of voyage ; but failed sub-   sequently. The Arab reached the Thames four   days after his decease ; his remains were interred in London, and were followed to the grave by   several leading Wesleyan Ministers resident in London, including the Rev. Dr. Bunting, the Rev. J. Buchan, and the Rev. E. Hoole, General Secretaries of the Wesleyan Missionary Society. During the voyage Mr. Dredge re- ceived marked attention from Captain and Mrs. Dalgarno.

COURTS OF QUARTER SESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 29 September 1846

COURTS OF QUARTER SESSIONS. THE refusal of his Honor Mr, Justice A'Beckett, to preside as Chairman of the Courts of Quarter Sessions of this province has led to the introduction of a Bill in the Legislative Council for the repeal of the section of the Act, 4 Vic. No.. 10, under which his Honor holds such au- thority. The initiation of the Bill for this pur- pose, on the 10th instant, was duly no- tified in our columns, but we expected nothing farther of the measure than sub- stituting an elective Chairman for the Judge, in other words placing the court heie on the same footing as the Courts of Quarter Sessions in the other parts of the Colony. The opportunity struck us, as a good one, for the Geelong and Portland folks, and, indeed, for the Gipps Land residents, to obtain the establishment 'of local Courts of Quarter Sessions, in other words to bring the administration of jus- tice more to their own doors, but these being matters particularly within the province of the local press, ...
