The minutes of the Special Meeting held on Tuesday, were read. A protest had been entered by Alderman Greeves against the Mayor's ruling &nbsp; on the re-committal of the Market Regulations on Thursday last, but the worthy Alderman having omitted to attach his signature to his protest, Alderman Kerr moved that it be expunged, the Standing Orders requiring the signature of the party protesting, and the document being in fuît no protest at all. The entry was accordingly expunged.

ELECTION OF OFFICERS IN THE VICTORIA FIRE AND MARINE INSURANCE COMPANY. A meeting of the Shareholders was held at the Royal Hotel, on Wednesday, for receiving the Report of the Committee, and electing Directors, Secretary and Solicitor. Capt. Howey proposed that Alastair M'Kenzie, Esq., Deputy Sheriff, be called to the chair. The Chairman said, that of course they were all sufficiently aware of the purpose for which they were assembled. The first business would be to hear the Committee's Report, which would be brought up by Mr. M'Lachlan, the gentleman who had prepared it. Mr. A. M'Lachlan then read the following Report :— To the Shareholders of the Victoria Fire and Marine Insurance Company. Gentlemen—The Committee appointed at the general meeting held at the Royal Hotel in Melbourne, on the 12th January &nbsp; last, having completed the duties entrusted to fhem, have now the pleasure to rnnke the following Report, and to congratulate the Shareholders upon the successful co...

PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 9 March 1849
PUBLIC MEETING. We are now able to complete our report of the proceedings at Tuesday's meeting, by presenting the speech of Mr, Rey- nolds, which we were obliged to omit in our extraordinary, from the faithless and ungentlemanly conduct of a contem- porary. Mr Mayor and gentlemen—In matters affecting the welfare of a whole commu- nity, each individual has a right to give his own opinions, whether his brow be bronzed with labor, or pale with indo- lence ; whether his hand be callous with toil, or attenuated with ease; his right to exercise his judgment and express his sentiments on every subject in which his own interest is involved, is equally un- deniable, and as the topic under conside- ration to-day is one of the most mo- mentous import to that order of society whose interests are identical with mine, &nbsp; I need offer little apology for doing so. '' To speak his thoughts is every freeman's right, In peace and war, in council and in fight " &nbsp; Gentlemen—your...
COUNTRY NEWS. (FROM OUR WARRNAMBOOL CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 9 March 1849
COUNTRY NEWS. (From our Warrnambool correspondent.) For the past week our little town has exhibited quite a scene of bustle and ac- tivity. The reapers are pouring in, and have been busily engaged in dissemi- nating the " root of all evil," to the best of their ability, and in consequence the tone of Warrnambool society has experi- enced a change for the better. The san- guine are realising their fondest expecta- tions for the while, and the desponding, begin to think Warrnambool is a fine place after all. Of course, this is what we have all been expecting, and in a dis- trict like this, the close of the harvest is always looked forward to by the reapers for a " spree," and by the townspeople as the most likely time to collect their vari- ous accounts. There are some sad fellows, however, among the reapers, more like brutes than human beings, they rush into town when they are paid off, (their appe- tites being sharpened by a long absti- nence), and at the first public house, they de...

THE BUILDING SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 9 March 1849
THE BUILDING SOCIETIES. We have again to apologise for delaying the further consideration of the mechan- ism of these societies. Our hands have been rather full lately, but having now, we trust, pretty well beaten back the importation of scoundrels with which we have been threatened, we shall have more leisure to attend to the interests of better and honester men.
THE SUPERINTENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 9 March 1849
THE SUPERINTENDENT. Since the holding of the public meeting, on Tuesday, we learn, on good authority, that His Honor the Superintendent is going hand-in-hand with the Colonists, in resisting Earl Grey's proposal to con- vert this Province into a penal settlement; and it is farther stated, that His Honor has, all along, been opposed to any re- newal of the transportation system, and to the sending of Ticket of Leave or Conditionally Pardoned Convicts to this Province ; though it is not equally clear that he has not had a hand in giving encouragement to the Pentonvillain scheme, which was the primary cause of all the evil that has followed. It would give us infinite pleasure, notwithstanding that Mr. La Trobe does not stand very high in our good books, if it were in our power to testify, that His Honor has been altogether guiltless ia this matter, and the censure of the public meeting, consequently, undeser- ved, but it certainly does not seem feasi- ble that the Home Government would...
Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 9 March 1849
Domestic Intelligence. South Australia.—Sir H. F. Young, the Lieutenant Governor of South Australia, has given official intimation of his intention of laying before the Legislative Council a bill, prepared during the Administration of Governor Robe, for the incorporation of Adelaide under the name, style, and title of the " Chairman, Councillors, and Citizens, of the City of Adelaide."—The outline of the bill, as published, seems to follow pretty closely the Melbourne Acts, save that the City Council is only to he a body "corporate," and not " politic;" there are to be no Mayor and &nbsp; Aldermen, but the Chairman is to be a paid &nbsp; functionary, and he and the whole of the Coun- &nbsp; cillors are to be ex officio Magistrates of the City ; there are also a lot of impolitic and impracticable restrictions of the powers of the Municipality which will no doubt be done away with by the &nbsp; Legislative Council. The desire for the in- troduction of M...

PORTLAND RACES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 9 March 1849
PORTLAND RACES. These Annual Races came off on the 27th and two following days, with the following results. A great deficiency of spirit was observable throughout the meeting, attributable of course to the low price of wool. A large number of the lately landed exiles attended the races, and behaved with great propriety. First Day. MAIDEN PLATE. Of 20 sovs, with a sweepstakes of 3 sovs. added, town plate weights ; heats 1½ mile. In the race for the Maiden Plate, Pilot was objected to, in consequence of his having won several sums of public money at various times, on account of which he was fairly disqualified for contesting this plate. Notwithstanding the protests which were made against his running, Pilot was allowed to take the course. The race, however, was easily decided, neither Corduroy nor Banker being a match for either Pilot or Fugleman. The last mentioned horse coming in first in the first heat, and Pilot in the second, Fugleman was declared to be the winning horse, Pilot b...

the Argus. I am in the place where I am demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak, impugn it whoso list." FRIDAY, MARCH 9, 1849. THE MEETING. It was well said by Mr. Hull, on Tuesday, that " some under-current appeared to be working against the object for which the meeting was convened."* The same remark was made by many others beside Mr. Hull, and we believe that some good may be done by tracing out that under- current, and showing how an important object may be risked and compromised for the sake of the gratification of the most paltry feelings to which poor human nature is exposed. In spite of any op- position in whatever quarter, no one will deny that Tuesday's meeting may be considered as perfectly conclusive upon the subject for which it was assembled. The perfect unanimity that prevailed, the large number assembled, the union of all classes, the tone of quiet determination, and the very high character of the va- rious addresses, will compare f...

INSOLVENT COURT. (Before R. W. Pohlman, Esq., Chief Com- missioner.) Tuesday, March 6th. In re Jacob Mouldey—Adjourned first and only meeting.

POLLUTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 16 March 1849
POLLUTION. The Magistrates' meeting yesterday, fol- lowing so closely upon the unequivocal demonstration of the feelings of the co- lonists on the subject of importing Bri- tish criminals, may, we think, be re- garded as the death-knell of Earl Grey's transportation proposition. No Govern- ment would dare, in the face of such a manifestation of public opinion, to at- tempt such a gross injustice as the intro- duction of convicts under such circum- stances. We will not indulge in the feeling of triumph which, as the unflinching op- ponent of the pollution project from the beginning, and in every stage of its pro- gress, we may naturally be supposed to entertain. It is enough for us that the evil is likely to be averted, and that those who would have sacrificed us to a mere temporary pressure in the labour market have seen and acknowledged the evil of their ways before it is too late. How Mr. Delegate Cunningham and his abettors will justify themselves with the Secretary of State is a...

Commercial Intelligence. MELBOURNE MARKETS March 15, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 16 March 1849
Commercial Intelligence. MELBOURNE MARKETS March 15, 1849. Grain.—During the week no alteration in the market has occurred. Wheat, at 3s. to 3s. 3d per bushel, and a reduction of these low rates can only be prevented by the supply sent into the market by the farmers being kept proportionate &nbsp; with the demand ; Oats, 2s. 3d, ; Maize, none. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Flour.—A rise in the price of this article has &nbsp; not yet taken place, but is daily expected, first quality is selling at £10, and seconds at £9, per 2000lbs. Potatoes have been scarce this week, and in consequence have advanced to £5 per ton, which is £1 per ton higher than they have been this season. Hay is in abundance, and fetching from £2 to £2 5s. per ton.
