Original Correspondence. LAND JOBBERY AT PORT FAIRY. To the Inhabitants of the Port Fairy District.     I lately observed a paragraph in a   Portland newspaper, stating that a Go-   vernment Surveyor, Mr. Skene, was laying   out into small allotments for public sale that valuable and important stripe of   government land situated between the   Town of Belfast and the Harbour of Port   Fairy, separated from the former by the   River Moyne, which is deep and naviga-   ble along nearly the whole length of that   part of the block opposite the town.   This block consists of about 30 acres,   admirably adapted to the erection of   wharves and warehouses on the river   bank, and on the side next the harbour     is the only place all along the coast where   &a...

Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 16 March 1849

Domestic Intelligence. Police Office.—On Wednesday last   an orphan girl named Eliza Griffin, was sentenced to seven days' solitary confine- ment in the gaol, and to be fed on bread and water, for absconding from the ser- vice of Mr. Shadworth; she had been guilty of frequent acts of misconduct, but Mr. Shadforth refrained from punishing her until fairly driven to it.——A lad named John Meyers, was brought before the Police Bench on Tuesday charged with absconding from the service of Mr. J. P. Fawkner, of Pascoevale. The lad was only eight years of age, and had been taken away by his parents. He was ordered back, and to pay all expenses. Mr. Joseph Harper, of the Springs, appeared at the Police-office on Tuesday to answer the charge of his hired servant, J. Nathan Toddy, for neglecting to pro- vide sufficient board and lodging accord- ing to agreement. The offence was proved, and the Bench ordered defendant to pay complainant £1 damages, all wages due, 6s, 6d. costs, and...

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 whose list." FRIDAY, MARCH 16, 1849. THE VICE-REGAL VISIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 16 March 1849

The Argus. I am in the place where I am i demanded of conscience to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak, impugn it whoso list." FRIDAY, MARCH 16, 1849. THE VICE-REGAL VISIT. We would fain hope that it is not in- tended to allow his Excellency the Go- vernor to leave the province without something in the shape of a public en- tainment. A dignity ball, with a self- elected committee to scrutinise the ap- plications of intending visitors can scarcely be held to come under that de- scription, and it will assuredly not say much for the hospitality of the commu- nity, if so distinguished a visitor is allowed to depart without some compli- ment of a more general nature. We perceive that our contemporary the Herald has strong objections to a public dinner, on the score of an ap- prehended risk of a " wont be put down" interlude. There is no accounting for tastes, but we confess we should be disposed, even at that hazard, to give a public dinner the preference over a dignity bal...

THE CUSHIONED REMONSTRANCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 16 March 1849

THE CUSHIONED REMON-   STRANCES. The discovery of the hapless fate of the several attempts of the Colonists of Port Phillip, to obtain a hearing from the throne, against the pollution proposals of the Home Government, completely dispels the veil of mystery which has hitherto enveloped the proceedings of the Home Government in the matter, and makes as clear and intelligible as they seemed before to be dark and incompre- hensible, the apparently infatuated policy of the Home Government, and the out- rageous misrepresentations of public feel- ing, which theEnglish Journals reported as given utterance to, by »^cessive Se- cretaries of State. All is now clear as the noon day sun. With Mr. Cuninghame, at home, as an accredited agent from the Province, to mislead and deceive Her Majesty's Min- isters as to the wishes and feelings of the Colonists, in regard to the importation of British Criminals, it needed but to " work the oracle " here ; if the Colonists could not be kept q...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 16 March 1849

Original Correspondence.   To the Editor of the Argus. Sir,—It appears from the remarks subjoined   to my note in your paper of to-day, that my con- tradiction of your statement respecting a trooper being sent to me in Gipps Land, was not suffi- ciently precise and distinct.     I beg, therefore, now to say, first, that no trooper was despatched to Gipps Land in quest of me, secondly, that I did not while I was there, receive any communication from Port Phillip, except through the post:—thirdly, that the only leyter which I received there, was from a private friend, and did not in any way allude to his Excellency's visit:—and lastly, that, however   desirous I may have been to be present at Mel- bourne upon his Excellency's arrival, my return was not accelerated by a single day on that account. Your mistake probably originated in the fact, that an express happened to be sent upon some Government business into Gipps Lan...

THE NORTHERN EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 16 March 1849

THE NORTHERN EXPEDITION. The following is the statement of Jackey, referred to in our last :— Mr. Kennedy started from Weymouth Bay for Cape York on the 13th Novem- ber, 1848, accompanied by Jackey, the aboriginal native, Costigan, Dunn, and Luff, leaving eight men behind, and Carron in charge of the camp.

THE GOVERNOR'S VISIT. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 16 March 1849

THE GOVERNOR'S VISIT. The day following his Excellency's arrival was devoted to an examination of the city and its en- virons, his Honor the Superintendent, his Worship the Mayor, and a number of other officials, civil and military, forming the escort. In the evening his Excellency dined with his Honor the Super- intendent, who entertained a select party on the occasion, among whom were his Honor the Resi- dent Judge, and his Worship the Mayor. Re- turning from the dinner party in Mr. La Trobe's   carriage, the accident occurred, of which a   notice appears in another column. For- tunately, comparatively little damage was done; his Excellency was a good deal shaken by the violence of his fall, and Mr. Fitz Roy, the Private Secretary, had one of his arms a good deal bruised, but considering the locality in which the accident occurred, the Corporation contractors being engaged in excavating the street to a depth of five feet just were the carriage was dashed ...
