SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 19 December 1840

SYDNEY. The Hired Servants' Act is ianother instance of the glorious uncertainty of the law. On one particular clause, Mr Nichols, the other day, caused two several parties to be-the one con victed, and the other acquitted!

GEELONG REGENERATOR. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 19 December 1840

GEELONG REGENERATOR. We refer to our Correspondent's letter for a very important piece of good news to this district. The Regen- erator of the Press, the sagacious tame elephant, has expressed his determina- tion to annihilate the cause of all the misfortunes of Geelong by heading the ranks of the conspirators against the present Press. When this mighty arm rears aloft the standard of " The GEELONG REGENERATOR" then WE must ' hide our diminished head,' and bid ' farewell, a long farewell to all our greatness;' for he intends to scare us out of this earthly paradise by the refulgtnt flashes of his two-edged sword. But, to speak seriously, we may ex- claim with Fitz James, The lovelorn swain in lady's bower e'er panted for the appointed hour As was, until before us stand This peerles champion and his sAND. Oh, we dearly love to see a badger baited by a staunch terrier, or a cage full of rats sneaking away or running helterskelter for their holes; or, better than all, a half tamed Brui...

The ratification of the Turkish Govern- ment Is expected daily, and as soon   as it shall have been recived, the treaty will be completed, and measures will be immediately adopted to carry it into effect. It is stated that the first coercive step will he the blockade, of the coast of Syria by a fleet composed of English, Russian, and Austrian men-of-war, and of such 'Turkisih ships as remain in possession of the Sultan At the date of the last accounts, the English fleet was cruising off the mouth of the Dardanelles, waiting for the arrival of the Turkish (and probably of the Russian) squadrons from the Black sea.

SEPARATION FROM NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 26 December 1840

SEPARATION FROM NEW SOUTH WALES. In another column will be found the joyous intelligence that the last 'link has been cut of the galling chain which bound this noble pro vince in durance to the penal colony of New South Wales. For another year or two we are to remain sub ject to the legislative control of such sapient senators as Messrs Richard Jones, Alexander Berry & Co: but with New South Wales proper ("' the great slo?i.basin of the British Empire") Port Phillip has no longer. any interest in common. Public opinion is divided as to the effect the selling land at an uniform * price of one pour.d per acre may have; but there is-there can be but one opinion, one feeling of ex ultation regarding the separation of this province from New South Wales-the salvation of our land fund from the harpy claws of the Sydney legislators. What a noble • province is Australia Felix now ! Our sea-board extends from Two fold Bay to beyond the Glenelg, , Maneroo Downs, Gipps' Land, the rich t...

We need not expect that they will avow themselves; but-we know them by their fruitu.

THE ARCHIMEDES STEAMER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 26 December 1840

TIE ARCHIMEDES STE:AM ER. The English Newspapers teem with iengthencd aceounts of the performances of the vessel which has been fitted with the new propelling apparatus called the Archimedean Screw. We have searched in vain fcr anything like a clear descrip -tion of the manner in which the vessel is propelled,-the various writers seem to look upon it as something mysterious and occult.. By comparing and classify ing various accounts, we have drawn up the following summary, which we think will be fouud suficiently clear and explanatory in satisfying the curiosity of our readers. The merits of the invention have been sufficiently tested-and its success may .be pronounced as triumphant. The Archimedes has circumnavigated Great 'Britain, courting inspection and dis playing her powers in 'every sea and river port on her way, and this has been accomplished without any accident or failure- worth recording. * The vessel cannot be recognised as a steamer, except from her funnel ; she is rigg...

WATERING PLACES FOR CATTLE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 26 December 1840

WATERING PLACBS FOR CATTLE. In our last, we urged the necessity for the formation of watering places on the Barion, where cattle might go with ease and bafety. instead of scram hlng over the abrupt and crumbling banks. Within a Tewi hours of the publication of these remarks, a val uable bullock was drowned, " through. this neglect. The price of this one but lock would pay the expense of forming a safe watering place. And when we consider, that such accidents are of daily occurrence, we cannot allow, of any excuse from the Government 'or, if they are so niggardly as to demur at the expense, they ought at least to allow private individuals to fom them (or themselves.
