SQUATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845
SQUATTERS. There is something uncouth to "ears polite," in the term " Squat- &nbsp; ters," and there are actually persons who believe in the truth of the carica- tures which have been drawn of them and their habits. Our English rea- ders will have some difficulty in com- prehending us, when we assure them that the Squatters are neither more nor less than "country gentlemen," differing from the same class at home, only in respect to the treatment which they receive at the hands of govern- ment. In England the country gen- tleman occupies the highest rank, and enjoys the greatest privileges amongst commoners ; while in Port Phillip, he is treated as a serf unworthy of the meanest political privilege, and his whole property is placed at the arbitrary disposal of, it may be, a petty tyrant, acting under the orders ofa tyrant-general. When they seek for a redress of grievances, they are taunted with their anomna- lous position; and when they ask for a change in such position, the...

The Squatters' Advocate. &nbsp; "Men who know their rights &nbsp; And, knowing, dare maintain." &nbsp; IT is singular, that, hitherto, so important a class of colonists as the Squatters should not have had a single newspaper devoted to the advocacy of their interests. It is true that scattered notices and re- marks, bearing upon their affairs, may be gleaned from all the news- papers in the colony; but such notices are merely given as form- ing a part of the casual occur- rences of the day, and from their discursive nature, fail to produce that impression which the magni- tude of the subject renders it de- sirable should be made. The Syd- ney Herald — the greatest, and upon the whole the most consistent cham- pion of the rights of the Squatters, treats the subject as bearing prin- &nbsp; cipally upon the commercial pros- perity of Sydney — wisely perceiv- ing that, without supporting the pastoral interests; there would be no produce to export, and no ...

MAY 20, 1845. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845
MAY 20, 1845. Punch took the chair at the usual hour, and it was observed that his "truncheon" never looked in more &nbsp; blooming condition. The minutes of the preceding meeting having been read and con- firmed, Punch rose and said,—"My &nbsp; Lords and Gentlemen- hem ! hem ! Excuse me, I thought for the mo- ment I was on the woolsack; but it is difficult to get rid of old recollec- tions. Gentlemen, I am given to understand that this very day, several misguided men, called squatters, have assembled themselves together to discuss a question which they had much better leave to our wisdom. Gentlemen, while they are arguing the negative of the matter, we cannot do better than fortify ourselves with a little of the positive, and while Punch exists you need not want of the latter. First, then, these squat- ters, for so the rabble are called, declare we have.no right to ask them to pay for improvements from which they do not derive any benefit. Now, gentlemen, this is ra...
THE PATRIOT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845
THE PATRIOT. This journal (for it is published diurnally) has, since the late change in its editorship; become violently bel- ligerent against the squatters. Enter- taining, as we do, great respect for our contemporary, and believing him to be perfectly sincere and honest in his op- positions; and not at all actuated by any factious hostility or ill-will; although he certainly allows his feelings to over- come his discretion in the use of intem- perate invective; we shall take some pains to set his arguments in their true light, and do not despair of convincing him that he views the subject through a distorted medium. He first adopts the supposition that the squatters and the land holders are antagonistic classes, and that their in- terests are so far irreconcileable, that whatever is bestowed upon the one must be taken from the other. This is a very great mistake. The interests of the two classes, are, or ought to be, totally distinct. It is true that under the present faulty regul...
THE LATE MEETINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845
THE LATE MEETINGS. For the purpose of more convenient reference; we have reprinted in another column the series of resolu- tions passed at the meetings on Wednesday last. Although con- curring with them so far as they go we must still express our regret that higher ground and a more ex- tended field was not taken—and that the axe was not applied to the root &nbsp; of the evil instead of merely lopping off the branches. It is true that the squatters are not represented in the local council, but it must be also re- collected that they are unrepresented in the supreme council of the colony; and that the secondary grievance is a mere consequence of the primary, and the redress of the greater would include, as a matter of course, the redress of the lesser.

CROWN LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845
CROWN LANDS. The following copy of the regulations for the sale of Land at the Cape of Good Hope will no doubt be perused with some degree of curiosity, as a re- markable contrast to the system adopted in this colony :— Conditions and Regulations upon which the Crown Lands at the Cape of Good Hope will be disposed of:— 1. The unappropriated Crown Lands in this colony will be appropriated in freehold, and by public auction only. &nbsp; 2 Unless it is otherwise notified, the upset price for such sales will be two shillings per acre (one acre is about half a morgen) but the Governor, for the time being, will have the power to fix such higher upset price as the loca- lity, or other circumstances, may render expedient, of which due notice will always be publicly given. 3. Persons desirous of becoming pur- chasers will apply, in writing, to the Secretary to Government, respecting the land they wish to have put up for sale, stating in what division it is situ- ated, and, as far as ...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845
OUR Town and Suburban readers will perceive that we have made a considerable change in the ar- rangement of our journal, — a change which, we imagine, will give as much satisfaction to them as to our Bush readers, as, so far from encroaching upon the space devoted to general news, we shall be enabled to afford greater scope for every department of our du- ties ; while our increased circula- tion, in the most influential circles, will secure great additional advan- tages to advertisers. It would be altogether superflu- ous to point out to our local readers that the very existence of our township depends upon the success of the Squatters, —that &nbsp; without them, we should have nei- ther ships nor commerce, employ- ment for artizans, nor demand for goods. But this is not the ground on which we calculate upon the support of the townspeople; their own sense of justice will incline them to lend a favourable ear to the advocacy of the interests of a class of colonists, of whose ...
THE LAND SALE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845
THE LAND SALE.—In our last we &nbsp; accused the Government of a vile, huxtering disposition in parcelling out land for sale, and displaying a mean and grasping spirit in fixing the upset price. We do not abate a word of what we then said; but we have been assured that the government will not refuse any application which may be made in a formal manner. It is highly probable, however, that quarterly sales will be held, whether applications be forwarded or not; the government having become at length alive to the increasing im- portance of the locality; but land will be put up in vain, if the price be raised to extortion-pitch by the over-reaching avarice of the valua- tors. THE STREETS.—The few days' rain we have already had, has perfectly de- luged the streets with mud ; we ven- ture to say that no town is in a more solvent condition than our good town of Geelong. The communication be- tween the East end of the town and the Wharf is nearly cut off, the drays hav- ing to choos...
POLICE COURT. TUESDAY, MAY 27, 1845. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845
POLICE COURT. TUESDAY, MAY 27, 1845. Dr Thomson preferred a complaint against Mr Robert Moore, publican on the Warren Ponds, for illegally impounding a flock of sheep. The case was a very confused one, the examination of the witnesses occupy- ing an hour and a-half, and the bench consulting together afterwards for an additional half-hour. It ap- peared in evidence, that the sheep had been impounded from a section of land leased from the crown by Mr Miller of Melbourne, which lease, Mr Moore first alleged was held by him as tenant, and afterwards as bailiff for Mr Miller. The sheep, some 700 in number, were impounded by Moore on his farm during one night, for which he charged the sum of £12. It further appeared, on the evidence of Dr Coward, that Moore had parted with his right to graze sheep on the sections in question to him (Dr C.), which act, the plaintiff contended, showed that Moore had no power to impound stock without the consent of Dr Coward. Moore here produced a written au...
THE ATLAS AND THE DISTRICT COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845
THE ATLAS AND THE DISTRICT COUNCIL. The following violently offensive remarks are from the Atlas, a paper which is a dis- grace to the party by whom it is supported —(the majority in the Legislative Conncil). However much we may disagree with the members of the District Council, we must deprecate the use of harsh names and imputa- tion of motives. " There is not, we believe a District Council in the Colony which has the slightest intention of raising the funds by its own authority—we believe we speak the literal truth when we say that there is scarcely a person in the country, with one ex- cepsion, who entertains as frantic an idea for a single moment. We speak, of course, of the Dis- trict which Dr Lang calls New South Wales pro- per; for in Port Phillip, or in New South Wales improper, there certainly have been found per- sons who, greedy of contempt and infamy, have consented to be made the means of imposing this intolerable burden upon their fellow subjects."
MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845
MELBOURNE. OUR REPRESENTATIVES. — Dr Nicholson, M. C, has signified his in- tention of paying his constituency a call either by the next steamer or after the next session of the Council.— Herald. NATIVE GUMS.—A Mr Elliot on the Sydney side is offering from £6 to £10 per ton for all gums and in any quan- tities. The best is that procured from the wattle of some age growing on poor sterile soil and must have the quality of adhesion. The fine bright looking sub- stance growing on the young green wattle, and which resembles gum, is not gum but a jelly, and when dis- solved in water will not adhere. Our bush abounds with gums of the requi- site quality, and parties having no other occupation, or too lazy for hard work, might make a good living by turning their attention to this employ- ment. It should be understood that the sum offered by Mr Elliot is an ad- vance, and that after sale in the Lon- don market, the balance, deducting the necessary charges will be handed over to the propriet...
SYDNEY. THE HOMEBUSH MAY MEETING, 1845. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845
SYDNEY. THE HOMEBUSH MAY MEETING, 1845. Saturday evening last was the time of entry for the horses to run at the Homebush Meeting. Different from previous similar occasions the large room at the Royal Hotel was well filled ; heretofore a few only appeared at the Treasurer's table—those imme- diaetly interested in the horses or parties commissioned to enter and pay the entrance money. On Saturday evening however, from one hundred and seventy to two hundred persons, respectable &nbsp; citizens and persons from the country were in the room, and very considera- ble interest was manifested by them. In consequence of the very unfavourable weather which had prevailed, it was feared that the entrance list would not at nine o'clock present any very en- couraging appearance. It was closed at that hour, and the lists, as shown below, far exceeded all that was hoped for by the parties most active in the Home- bush matter. The Dinner is to be eaten at Mr. Sparke's, this evening; Benjaman...

NEW INSOLVENTS.— William Lackey, of Dog Trap Road. late publican—debts £208 19s 9d, deficiency £195 19s 9d. —Willam Young, late of Brickfield &nbsp; Hill, Sydney, now of Moreton Bay, settler, debts £170 19s 4d, deficiency £68 11s 4d.—John London, of Carcoar, &nbsp; late publican—debts £310 deficiency £267 14s 2d.—Charles Martin, of Wil- berforce, sawyer—debts £93 5s. defi- ciency £62 5s.
PORTLAND. THE PORTLAND BAY EXAMINER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845
PORTLAND. THE PORTLAND BAY EXAMINER. —We believe it is the intention of the parties who have had the control of the "Portland Bay Examiner," &nbsp; not to publish any further numbers of that journal. The reason we have heard assigned for this deter- mination is, that the gentleman who undertook its literary management, has latterly paid so little attention to his editorial duties, that its continu- ance, under such neglect, was not likely to be creditable either to its supporters or to the district—Gazette.
AMUSING. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845
AMUSING.--The Perth Inquirer of the 20th January, informs its read- ers that various reports respecting Sydney, which had been in circu- lation, were not true. " We now learn, says our contempory, " that Sir T. Mitchell has not been dis- missed from his office ; it is not true that Mr Windeyer had been placed in custody ; still less that Sir George Gipps had dissolved the Assembly at the head of a detachment of troops, after the manner of Cromwell." We have not been able to find the paper in which these statements appeared, but their being current is only ano- ther proof of the old odage respect- ing rumours.
ADELAIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845
ADELAIDE. MORE LAND SALES.—The Gazette &nbsp; contains the proclamation of two other Land Sales; the former, consisting of twenty-six lots of agricultural lands and to take place on Saturday, the 19th day of July next. Already, we have had two Land Sales this year, and the pro- ceeds are far from inconsiderable, say £3000; but there is still a demand for land in the colony, and particularly for mineral lands, and his Excellency, there- fore, is exercising a sound discretion in submitting the successive lots to pub- lie competition. Register. A POSER FOR SOMEBODY,— Passing the other day," says the editor of — "'we heard two men engaged in discussing the merits of some newspaper, which it ap- peared that one, at least, of them was a sub- criber for. He said that he liked the paper, only that there were too many advertisements in it; did not contain as much reading mat- ter as he would like, 'Perhaps,' replied &nbsp; the other, 'it contains quite as much as you have pai...

DIED. At Windsor, on the 16th instant, after a long and painful illness, Horatio Nelson Carrington, Esq., solicitor, (fourth son of William Henry Carrington, Esq., Barrack- master of Weymouth and Durches- ter, England,) aged 39; leaving a widow and five children to lament his loss. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
