ENLARGEMENT OF THIS JOURNAL. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Trade Circular — 6 September 1856
ENLARGEMENT OF THIS JOURNAL. It will be seen that we have this day enlarged the size of our sheet. We have done so for two reasons: the first of which is, in order that we might be ena- bled to publish full reports of proceedings that have recently transpired, in which the interests of this town are involved; and in the next place, that &nbsp; our readers might be furnished with a specimen of the article we intend to supply them with regu- larly at the moderate charge of TWOPENCE. As our arrangements for a permanent enlargement are not yet completed, we fear we shall be compelled to publish one or two numbers more of our usual ordinary dimensions.

NOTICES OF MOTION. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Trade Circular — 6 September 1856
POLITICS OF MOTION. &nbsp; By Councillor Verdon; To move - 1. That the propriety of causing Steps to be placed at the Old Pier for the conve- nience of persons arriving and departing in boats be taken into consideration. 2. The measures be taken for procuring a better light than the one now exhibited at the end of the Old Pier. By Councillor Maclean- 1. That the recommendations contained in the 16th Report of the Public Works' Com- mittee be adopted. &nbsp; &nbsp; A printer not long ago, being 'flung by his girl,' went into his office and tried to com- mit suicide with the 'shooting stick,' but the thing wouldn't go off. The 'devil' wish- ing to pacify him told him to peep into the sanctum, where the editor was writing dues to delinquent subscribers. He did so, and the effect was magical. He says that that picture of grief and despair reconciled him to his fate.

MR. FURNIVAL'S SURVEY OF THE BAR AT GEELONG. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Trade Circular — 6 September 1856
MR. FURNIVAL'S SURVEY OF THE &nbsp; &nbsp; BAR AT GEELONG. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Our readers are aware that a Survey of the Bar has for some time being going on under the superintendence of Mr. Furnival ; and having had an opportunity to inspect the charts on which the results of his labors have been mapped, a few particulars ?especting a work with which the prosperity of our town is so closely identified, will probably be per- &nbsp; used just now with considerable interest. In &nbsp; reference to the position of the new channel, which Mr Furnival has recommended to the Government for adoption, we may state, that it commences at a point about eight chaings south of the Black Bouy, which marks the Eastern entrance to the present ship channel; and extends in a straight line to a point about thirty-five chains south of the dolphin placed to indicate the western outlet of that channel. The entire length is rather more than one hund...

To the Electors of Williamstown. Melbourne August 14 1856. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Trade Circular — 6 September 1856
To the Electors of Williamstown. Melbourne, August 14, 1856. GENTLEMEN,—In compliance with a numer- ously signed Requisition, I have the honor to &nbsp; request your votes at the ensuing election of a member of the House of Assembly. On comparatively few topics does any essential dif- ference exist among our political men. It is there- fore, more incumbent on the electors to select as their representatives in the first Parliament of Victoria, men of ability and tried integrity, able to grapple with any new question which may arise, rather than to examine into every shade of opinion upon ques- tions about which the best may conscientiously differ. Whatever differences may exist on minor points, it is desirable that a general agreement on the leading questions of the day should subsist between a con- stituency and its representative. I will therefore, briefly state my views on the following points, and shall be happy to answer any questions at a public meeting :— 1st. State Ai...
