ENGLISH POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 4 September 1841
ENGLISII POLITICS. England has been comparatively quiet for a considerable period; there has been no grand exciting question in agitation of late, of suf ficient interest to engross the undi vided attention of the whole nation. Tha ministry, having enjoyed the sweets of office to satiety, had fallen into a listlessiness incompatible with such an energetic discharge of their duties, as characterised them oin their first acceptance of office. It has not been so with their opponents; as the Whigs have lapsed into indiffer ence, the Tories have increased in vigilance; and the people, whose affections are far from steady, and whose will is proverbially changeable, always require a periodical dose ,f excitement to be administered to them, whether the object be to fix their opinions or to effect a revolutionary movement. '1 he ministry appear to be tho roughly aware of this, and they have roused themselves to a mighty effort, in order to prop their falling popularity ; they have been drib?...

H[is Excellency remarked that the cir culation of- the paper would prov. very beneficial, and lie should be very happy to aid his lordship in any way he could for that purpose.

LOCAL INTELLZGENCE. NEW CUSTosII-OUSE AT CORIo.- 1II the estimates of expenditure for 1842, the sum of £1500 is proposed to be appropriated to the erection ol a Custom House at Corio. This, we would flain hope, will be accompanied by a decla. ration of this being a free warehousing port; for we cannot conceive any meIn sure which would so effectually tend to the advancement of the best interests of the town and district. Were we but possessed of that privilege-that right, we ought to say-the increase of Corio in wealth and general importance would ba rapid and secure: without it -we most toil under an undeserved enthralment, alike uujust and impolitic.

THE WOOL TRADE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 4 September 1841
THE WOO1. TRADE. From the Westmister Review. In the production of.wonl,the Australian colonies enjoy an advanntage whih is somewhat anulagous to the rent of the most fertile land in old nountries. The demand of the consuming countries greatly exceed the power of sulpply possessed by Australia, and no olher country being able to produce so cheaply,. the price is kept up to the tEuropean cost of product ion. Thus they enjoy a species of monopoly piice. T'his has hitherto been the ca.e with the cotton of America.
