DEPARTURES. NOV. 18 — Devonshire, for Melbourne &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; 19 — Charlotte, for Melbourne. &nbsp; &nbsp; 21 — Governor La Trobe, for Melbourne. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The long looked for and spendid steamer Clonmel, is expected to arrive at William's &nbsp; Town to day or to-morrow, (if she has not &nbsp; &nbsp; already arrived) as she was to have started &nbsp; from Sydney on Tuesday last. She will re- &nbsp; &nbsp; turn direct to Sydney, as the arrangements &nbsp; for a supply of coals have not been com- pleted for her intended intermediate trip to Launceston. &nbsp; &nbsp; Great fears are entertained for the safety &nbsp; &nbsp; of the Prince Albert schooner, consigned &nbsp; to Langborne Brothers. Two mail bags &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; have been picked up off the He...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 November 1840
TO CORRESPONDENTS. &nbsp; &nbsp; CORIOLANUS came too late for inser- tion. If our correspondents desire their favors to meet with prompt attention, they &nbsp; must forward them early in the week. &nbsp; The arguments of 'A Settler' on the &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; great December Land Sale, are now out of date. He will perceive by our advertising &nbsp; columns that the Governor has withdrawn that sale for the present. Where has our correspondent been buried, that he never heard of this before? W. X. Y. will perceive that his advertise- ment has been inserted. We suppose that it was his extreme modesty which induced him to send the advertisement in such a &nbsp; &nbsp; a secret manner, but as the money was en- &nbsp; closed in it. We have no right to grumble. However he need not be afraid of confiding in us; in such affairs, we consider our office as sacred as that of father-confessor.

THE PRESS. "Bring forth the Press! [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 November 1840
THE PRESS. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; "Bring forth the Press! When first that mighty shout was heard, Truth rose in radiant light ensphered, &nbsp; The nations to address." The public of this highly favoured &nbsp; district will now have an oppor- tunity of testing the truth of the above lines. That the career of the Press, the mighty engine for the promulgation of truth, may be HERE crowned with the same success &nbsp; which has attended it in other parts of these colonies, shall be our con- stant endeavour. To convince the most incredulous, of the importance &nbsp; &nbsp; of the present undertaking, we need only refer to the former efforts of the Proprietor of this paper, in the same good cause. What was the &nbsp; NOW flourishing town of Launces- ton when he was induced to start the FIRST newspaper there?—a &nbsp; mass of huts, without a passable street in winter. Look to what it is now, after its capabilit...
THE WHARF. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 November 1840
THE WHARF. The people of Melbourne imagine that they are blessed with the "ne plus ultra" of landing-places. They have never been at Corio, or they would at once yield the palm to us. The vessels lay about a ship's length from the shore, and there is not a vestige of a wharf to land upon. &nbsp; Should the lucky, passenger escape filling his boots with water, he very soon finds the deficiency made up for by sand, through which he plods his way to the Custom House, where the wharfage dues are extorted with- out any compunction of conscience by the Government. &nbsp; Who has not heard of' Barny &nbsp; &nbsp; O'Lynn's watch! The wharf at &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Corio, at least, seems to have been got up by some admirer of Barny's ingenuity. Barny O'Lynn had no watch to put on, &nbsp; &nbsp; So he scooped out a turnip to make him a one. And he put a big cricket clane under the skin, "Whoo! the'll think that it's tickin...
THE BENCH. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 November 1840
THE BENCH. During the week, we have had numerous complaints of the severity &nbsp; of the Magistrates sentences for tri- vial offences, such as drunkenness, &c. We do not, however, yield implicit belief to these complaints, for every man naturally imagines his own case &nbsp; the hardest; and certainly no one should be allowed to apportion the punishment due to his own crimes. Bacchus himself would consider that he was unjustly dealt with, were he stuck in the stocks for a few hours, yet no doubt the jolly god would richly deserve it. Owing to the many hindrances and annoyances inseparable from the getting out of a first number, we have not been able to make ourselves per- sonally acquainted with the passing events of the week. The indulgence of the public is therefore claimed for any errors committed, or duties neg- lected, and our remarks must conse- quently be confined to affairs of a general nature. We cannot look upon either severity or leniency in Magis...
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 November 1840
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. By the Lowestoffe we receive a val- uable supply of building materials, &nbsp; which, however, is still not sufficient to meet the demand. A few ship loads of building material; a few hundreds &nbsp; of workmen to erect houses; and a few thousands of families to occupy them and to proceed into the interior; would be more valuable than as many ship loads of gold dust. FIRE.—A fire broke out at the &nbsp; "Geelong Retreat" Inn, on Thurs- day evening last, but was fortunately extinguished before much mischief was done. A nursery lamp had been left burning, for the purpose of warming food for an infant during the night; by some accident it was upset in a basket of clothes, and the fire quickly spread. Had it not been promptly &nbsp; extinguished, the destruction of the whole valuable property would have been inevitable, as a large stock of spirits was stored in the next room. We are happy to have it in our power to state that the accid...

THE BLACKS.—Twenty of the Abo- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; rigines, who have been lately confined in gaol, against whom no proof appear- ed of having been implicated in any of the predatory attacks of which the settlers have complained, were set at &nbsp; liberty on Monday last. They seemed &nbsp; heartily rejoiced at obtaining their &nbsp; release, and embraced each other with the utmost cordiality. Ten of them, who have been identified, are still &nb...
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 November 1840
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. At the commencement of the ruling august Dynasty of this happy land, we announce the arrival of some mighty Generals who had braved the perils of the sea to manifest their request of Sir John Franklin's motion here. We recollect that amongst the distinguished &nbsp; visitors General Dissatisfaction, General Distress, and General Humbug, were &nbsp; &nbsp; very prominent. We have now how- &nbsp; &nbsp; ever to announce with General Dismay &nbsp; that some other of Sir John's followers have reached this happy shore, the an- nounced of whom are General Insol- vency, General Distrust, General &nbsp; Gloom, and General Disgust. We re- gret to state that General Trade ac- &nbsp; companied by General Credit made a bolt immediately on Sir John's arrival, and as the lawyers would say, have ever since been found "non est inver- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; tus." It ...
SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 November 1840
SYDNEY. LAND FUND.—His Excellency the Governor announced the gratifying in- telligence in Council, on Friday last, that the land fund amounted to the &nbsp; sum of £306,000 by the last return received; and he expected that at the &nbsp; end of the year, if sales went on in the same proportion and with like success, it would exceed £350,ooo, if it did not reach £400,000. By a Port Phil- lip Paper be found that a sale of land had taken place at Portland Bay, which has been, recently thrown open to location, to the amount of £17,000, and town allotments, laid out in the proposed township of Portland, brought the extraordinary high price of £500 &nbsp; per acre.—Australian. The Right Reverend the Catholic &nbsp; Bishop will sail for Europe in about a fortnight, accompanied by the Very &nbsp; Reverand Dr. Ullathorne and the Rev. &nbsp; H. Gregory. We can only hope to allay the universal feeling of regret whch this announcement will convey t...
CURE OF THE SCAB IN SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 November 1840
CURE OF THE SCAB IN SHEEP. (FROM THE SYDNEY HERALD.) The following receipt for dipping sheep I have used for twelve years, and found it answer. Take a half- pound arsenic, half pound sulphur, "two and a half pounds soft soap, boil it in two and a half gallons of water until it is dissolved. My method of &nbsp; brewing is this ; I have an iron boiler (which may be purchased at any iron- founders,) holding thirty-five gallons, put in eight pounds arsenic, four pounds soft soap, add eight pounds sulphur, thirty-two gallons soft water, and half pound pearl ash, make it boil slowly for an hour, care must be taken, or the soap will make it boil over , when off the boil put in the rest of the soap, and let it stand a night; when used, add twenty-four &nbsp; &nbsp; gallons of water to two of the liquor, this is sufficient for nearly two score &nbsp; lambs at midsummer, and twenty-six &nbsp; hogs in March. I always save the chamberleye for a week or tw...
INDIA AND CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 November 1840
INDIA AND CHINA. THE CHINA EXPEDITION.—On Tues- day forenoon H. M. Sloop of War Pylade anchored in the roads from the &nbsp; Cape the 27th April, announcing the approach of the Melville (74), bearing the flag of Rear Admiral the Honorable &nbsp; G. Elliot, Captain the Honorable R. Dundas, which entered the harbour in the course of the same day followed by H.M. Blonde (42), commanded by Thomas Bourchier, Esquire, both hav- ingt left the Cape on the 30th of April. On the following day the Admiral landed under the salute due to his rank as commander in chief of Her Majesty's forces to the eastward of the Cape; and we understand this important por- tion of the expedition will move for ward in the course of to-day. &nbsp; We are informed that Admiral Elliot received notification of his appoint- ment to succeed the lamented Sir Fred- erick Maitland, only three days before he left the Cape; during which inter- &nbsp; val the Mellville made up her full war co...
ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 November 1840
ENGLAND. We publish the following extract, as the raciest specimen of party writing which we have for some time seen — not from any sym- pathy for either of the parties concerned.— &nbsp; THE STICKFASTS. "There is nothing," says Swift, "that sticks like your true Whig." &nbsp; &nbsp; A leach is a good bloodsucking reptile; but he cannot suck for ever, and it is not easy to make him come again. But your Whig is of a stauncher breed. Let him once get the taste of public money, and you can never get rid of him. Force, indeed, may tear him away; but it is like tearing the life out of the animal; and, at the first moment your back is turned, the creatures, battered and broken as he may be, creeps back, and fastens again. &nbsp; The Whigs intrigued themselves into place in 1830. They had fasted from 1807, and came into salary with the hunger of almost a quarter of a cen- tury! They, accordinly, gorged every thing; and the sands of Northum- &nbsp; be...
POETRY. THE LAUNCH. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 November 1840
POETRY. THE LAUNCH. Unformed, in the forests of earth Thy timbers neglected had lain, &nbsp; &nbsp; Until man's magic art drew them forth, His servant to be on the main. &nbsp; &nbsp; In the same dauntless spirit that gave thee thy birth, On! onwards, careering, encompass the earth! &nbsp; Gaily, nearer they fathomless home Right gallantly now dost thou glide! &nbsp; And now cresting the white ocean foam, In thy buoyancy, boldness, and pride! &nbsp; As secure as a rock thy hold front shalt thou rear, Thy foundation on billows, thy summit in air! &nbsp; Thou proudest achievement of art! &nbsp; Its triumphs proclaim far and wide; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; From thine own native forests depart, Transplanted from earth to the tide! Go to war with the elements boldly in strife, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; As it thou wert really "a thing of life." &nbsp; &a...
THE MAGIC CLASS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 November 1840
THE MAGIC GLASS. MY MRS. HEMANS. "And dost thou wish the glorious dead to rise? &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Shall they look on thee with their proud bright eyes? Ye ask a fearful spell! &nbsp; Yet say, from shrine of dim sepulchral hall, What kingly vision shall obey my call?— &nbsp; The deep grave knows it well! &nbsp; Would'st thou behold earth's conquerors? shall they pass Before thee, flashing all the Magic Glass With Triumph's long array?— &nbsp; Speak! and those dwellers of the marble urn, &nbsp; Robed for the feast of victory, shall return As on the proudest day Or would'st then look upon the Lords of Song?— O'er the dark mirror that in mortal throng Shall waft a solemn gleam! &nbsp; Passing with lighted eyes and radiant brows, Under the foliage of green laurel boughs, But silent as a dream." &nbsp; "Not these, O mighty Master—though their lays Be unto man's free heart, and tears, and praise &nbs...
