Newspaper-Articles

  • 9 Mar 1882, Mr W F A Rucker, who died on the 2nd inst., was a very old colonist, having arrived at Port Phillip from Hanover in 1837. He went into business as a merchant in Market street, Melbourne, and attained a very prominent position in the commercial world of those days. Having great faith in the future of this settlement he bought a large quantity of land in Melbourne and its neighbourhood. The suburb of Brunswick received that name from him, and he bought upwards of 1,000 acres in that locality. Rucker's-hill, Northcote, on which also he owned property was named after him. In the city proper he once possessed many sites which are now of immense value. About 1843 a financial tornado swept over the settlement, and Mr Rucker, with many others, succumbed to its force. It may be mentioned that with a view to a mitigation of the crisis, Mr Rucker and 11 other of the leading business men in Melbourne combined to offer certain terms to the banks. Owing to the number of this band they were called "The Twelve Apostles, and only one of these "apostles," viz., Mr J B Were is now alive. However, the catastrophe was not averted, and Mr Rucker was forced into the Insolvent Court.
    At a later period of his life he paid his unsatisfied creditors on that occasion to the extent of 20s in the £. Soon after the failure Mr Rucker, in partnership with the late Mr John Dight, entered into business as merchants and millers. They carried on business in Elizabeth street, and, in consequence of some objections entertained by the fire insurance companies to taking a risk on adjoining premises, the new firm were unable to insure their property. It was destroyed by fire, and the firm, which lost very heavily, dissolved partnership. Mr Rucker subsequently entered into business as a commission agent and accountant. He never took an active part in political matters, but he was thoroughly identified with the rise and pro gress of this settlement in its younger days. He opened, as agent for the Derwent and Tamar Bank, the first banking institution in Australia. He has left a family consisting of a widow and two children.10

  • 18 Mar 1886, NATIVE NAMES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ARGUS.
    Sir,—Your article of to-day as to native names and the great desirableness of reviving and retaining them, is well timed and worthy of great consideration. Coming as a stranger to the colony, I have been much struck with the want of originality in your nomenclature.
    It is to a large extent Cockney, and to a large extent Scotch, Englad and Ireland both contributing a share. Looking over your maps no one, I think, could deny that the native names are, in a general way, more musical in sound ; and very likely, if we knew their meanings, more evpressive and descriptive of the places. It is a pity that more of them have not been preserved, but even for what are left, it would be very interesting if some philologist would compile a gazetteer of native names of places and their meanings, before it is too late.
    The nomenclature of the colonists is often vulgar and incongruous, aud it would be well, if it were still possible, to go back to the native. Many instances will occur to anyone.
    I was at Beaconsfield the other day (itself an incongrous name), and went up a hill a mile from the station to see what was said to be one of the finest views in Victoria, finer than that from Beaconsfield Hotel, so justly lauded by your contributor, "The Vagabond."
    The view is magnificent, but the map name of the hill that gives it is Mount Misery. To correct that incongruity, some selector has dubbed it Mount Grandview—a not incongruous, but rather pretentious substitute. The hill is rather a conspicuous one, and must have had a native name, and, if any one only knew it, a restoration might be easy. There must be any number of such instances as arguments for the course you wish followed, and which, it seems, the Legislature has contemplated.—Yours, &c., NEWCOME.
