ENGLISH MARKET. TALLOW. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

ENGLISH MARKET.   TALLOW.   Extract of a letter received from London per William Stoveld, by a merchant in Melbourne, dated 21st December, 1844:—   "The import of tallow from Aus- tralia, must have paid remarkably   well, and I suppose the trade will be continued. Mr. Lancester sold 500 casks yesterday, at full prices, by auction. The very fine white sheep. sold at 40s 6d to 41s 3d. The yellow beef, something like the Odesssa, at 38s to 39s. Our tallow market, however, is very dull, and you ought hardly to reckon on a continuance of such prices. It is just possible there may be an alteration in the duty on   Russian tallow. You know this is 3s 2d., with 5 per cent. I should not be surprised to see it lowered to 1s or 6d, and in that case the Russians might take off their export duty, which is 2s per cwt. This would enable us to   sell Russian tallow cheaper, and of   course to the prejudice of...

FRENCH IMPORT DUTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

FRENCH IMPORT DUTIES. By the French papers, just received, we learn that a Royal ordinance has been published, making material altera- tions in the import duties on various productions of India and other foreign countries, brought to France by French ships. The immediate and obvious object of these reductions is to en- courage French vessels to successfully compete with the merchant navies of other countries in the trade referred to, but more especially with that of Great Britain. In recommending these modifications to the King, the Minister of Commerce, in his letter says— "The principal portion of them   have for their object to encourage, by means of a reduction in the import duties, French vessels to proceed to India and other countries situate out of Europe, for cargoes of certain vo- luminous or bulky articles destined to be wrought in our manufactories, such as India reeds, bamboo, mother-of- pearl, and tin ore, which are imported from Hindostan and the island of...

NEW ZEALAND. PLAN FOR THE DEFENCE OF THE COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

NEW ZEALAND. PLAN FOR THE DEFENCE OF THE COLONY. The following are the heads of a plan which I would submit to the notice of the Home Government, and the Anglo New Zealander. I propose that troops be enlisted in England solely for this colony; that they be engaged to serve for seven years cer- tain, and be liable for a further seven year that two-third be married men, that all be selected subject to the rules laid down by the Emigration Commis- sioners, that three-fourths be agricul- tural labourers, and that the remainder he carpenters, masons, bricklayers, blacksmiths. and a few tailors and shoe makers; that the regiment be officered   by young men, educated as engineers and surveyors; that the passage for this force from England be defrayed out of the proceeds of the sale of Colonial Land; that on the arrival in the colony, after being thoroughly trained, two thirds be sent on detachments to the various settlements. These men I would employ in making roads between th...

TRACTARIANISM. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

TRACTARIANISM. We see with great satisfaction on every side testimonies of a powerful reaction against Tractarianism, even in those quarters where it lately was most rampant. The Times now gives daily an average of three or four columns of anti-Tractarian letters from correspon- dents, quantum valeat, which, if it do not prove the consistency of the Times, proves very clearly the consistency of the people whom the Times must fol- low. For ourselves, as we from the first declared, we never had any fears for the Protestant faith of the people, or their sincere religious feeling; both were too deeply rooted to be eradicated by the most energetical efforts of crea- tures in every sense so feeble as the Tractarians. That which we did fear was that, in particular places, the Es- tablished Church might lose its just influence, and those for whom we leared the most wore the parties too many of whom unfortunately seem not to have had the least sense of their own and the Church's danger. As t...

REVIEW. HISTORY OF OREGON, CALIFORNIA, &c. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

REVIEW. HISTORY OF OREGON, CALIFORNIA, &c. BY AN AMERICAN. We have here a national brief. Drawn specially for the instrucion of the people of the United States, it affects to furnish them with facts for the justification of their pretensions. The British, the Russians, and the citizens of the United States are the only people that have, made any set- tlement north of California— the fur trade has been the only inducement for these establishments—while the Spaniards have colonized and gar- risoned that part of the peninsula south of the 38th degree of latitude. Each of these four nations has urged claims to the exclusive possession of the territories north of California, but definite sovereignty over any portion has not been allowed to either, while all at times have entered into treaties with each other for the temporary use of the contested region. California is bounded on the north by the Oregon territory, and is divided into two portions, "Upper and Lower." The gulf of Ca...

HOBART TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

HOBART TOWN. MARRIAGES.—This morning two wed- dings took place at St. David's Church: the one was that of Augustus Eardley Wilmot, Esquire, to Matilda Jessie, daughter of John Dunn, Esquire, banker; the other was that of Mr Crook, bro- ther to Dr. Crook, to Miss Drew, daughter of Captain Drew. R.N. The cortege, in the first-named marriage, was numerous and most fashionable, and the happy couple, after the cere- mony, repaired to the mansion of the bride's father, where they partook of a splendid dejeune a la fourchette, at- tended by the bridesmaids and a large party of friends. At the first-named wedding, the Rev. M. Ewing officiated; at the other, the Bishop of Tasmania. We must mention that the Flagstaff, at the Signal Station, was most gaily de-   corated on this most auspicious occasion. —Colonial Times. Why is the dispatch of Lord Stan- ley on the Beer Bill not yet printed ? Why this mystery in reference to dis- patches? These are questions the public have a right...

To the Electors of the Electoral District of the Town of Melbourne. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

To the Electors of the Electoral Dis- trict of the Town of Melbourne. Gentlemen,—Anticipating a dissolu- tion of the Legislative Council, from certain hints which dropped from my friend, Sir George, the other day, in the course of a private conversation which I had with him about the Squat- ting question, I take the liberty of de- claring myself a candidate for the honor of representing you in that honora- ble body. I am aware, of course, that I possess no qualification except my own insufferable impudence and conceit; but, at all events, I am quite   as fit a person as your late Mayor, for it is impossible that I can be worse. I have the honor to be, Gentle- men, your obedient Servant, WILLIAM PUNCH, Alderman. LABLACHE.—The following anec- dote is from the Courier Francais:— "Few are there in the world who are   not acquainted with the talent of Lablache, but his occasional absence of mind is not so universally known.

STOCK MARKET. MELBOURNE [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

STOCK MARKET. MELBOURNE     SHEEP.—Are very rapidly rising in this   district of Australia Felix; in very indif- ferent condition, we are informed, they are not to be purchased under eight shillings per head, and for prime fat sheep, ten shil- lings are asked. The butchers, to keep tally with this advance, have raised the price of their mutton one penny per lb., from 2d to 3d. ADELAIDE CATTLE MARKET.—Our market is still supplied with the finest oxen for slaughter, for which prices remain steady, though it has been industriously bruited abroad that cattle have advanced materially in price. Working bullocks remain firm, and may be quoted higher than they were a few months since, but these must be in line working con- dition. Prices at the market:—Fat oxen,   10s per cwt.; working bullocks, £4 to £5 10s dairy cows, £4 to £4 10s sheep 8s to 9s each. Register

REVIEW. HISTORY OF OREGON, CALIFORNIA, &c. (Continued.) [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 7 June 1845

REVIEW. srTonRa or OFiEGOON, CALIFORNIA, &C, TB AN AMERICAN (Continued.)' In 1745, by act of parliament, a reward of £20,000 was oferced for the discovery of a north.west passage through H-udson's Bay, by ships bielonging to His Majesty's subjects, and in 1770, by another act, an equal reward was offered to the owners of any ship belonging to His Majesty's subjects, which should find out any passage, in any direction or parallel of latitude north of the 52nd degree, between the Atlantic and Pacific. In furtherance of those resolutions Cap tain James Cook set out for the coast of " New Albion" in July 1777. The application of" New Albion" to the north-west coast of America, shows, as, Mr Greenhow, remarks, that Britain claims the right acquired by Drake in 1570. Cook discovered the Sandwich Islands, examined Nootka Sound, penetFated to the Arctic, and discoveredthat the strait ihiclh is called Beering separated the continteits of Asia and America. Mr Greenhow admits that the ...

NEWS FROM ENGLAND, JANUARY 25, 1845. By the Ann, troop ship, arrived at Hobart Town, and the Kinnear, mer- chant ship, arrived at Launceston, we have intelligence up to the 29th of January. A summary of the most im- portant news is subjoined, for which we are principally indebted to our Van Diemen's Land contemporaries:— On dit, that Sir E Wilmot will pro-   ceed as governor to New South Wales, and that Shaw Kennedy, Esq., will be his successor. This rumour has gained considerable credit at the clubs. Admiral Du Petit Thouars had ar- rived in Paris. The Queen had appointed Major Matthew Richmond to be Superintend ent of the southern division of New Zealand. Sir H Pottinger has been appointed Governor General of Canada, in the place of Sir Charles Metcalfes who is seriously indisposed.

IRELAND. MORE AGITATION [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 7 June 1845

IRELAND.   MOTR AGITATION —The Repeal ques- tion has been thrown into the shade by an agitation of a very different and unexpected character. The Bequests Act has created a difference of opinion not only among the catholic laity, but among the higher orders of the clergy: The excitement occasioned by this meal sure had in no degree subsided, when it was rumoured that the Government had opened a negociation with the Pope for the purpose of connecting the Irish Catholic church with the State, either by making a provision for the clergy, or by obtaining a concordat giving the Crown the nomination of the prelates. The rumour apparently took all parties by surprise; but before there had been much time for the ex- pression of public opinion on the sub- ject,, Archbishop Crolly, the catholic primate of Ireland, published a letter addressed to him by the Propaganda, at the command of the Pope, charging him to admonish all ecclesiastics, and especially those of episcopal, rank, ...

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 7 June 1845

FACTS, FANCIES, AND RECOLLEC- TIONS. Calumny is like a wasp that teazes, and against which you must not defend your- self, unless you are certain to destroy it; otherwise it returns to the charge more fu- rious than ever. The Italian woman thinks she is beloved when her lover is capable of committing a crime for her; the English woman when he is ready to perform a rash act: the French when he will do a foolish one. Let us always bear in mind that true great- ness of mind, consists in a contempt for all those customs and opinions which are not founded it common sense. Man passes his life in reasoning on the past, in complaining of the present, and trembling for the future. We cannot command the gifts of fortune or titles, but we may deserve them.

The squatter's Advocate   "Men who know their rights   And, knowing, dare maintain." TO THE EDITOR. SIR,—You justly remark, in your valuable paper of the 98th ultimo, that the Squatters ought to take higher ground, and claim at once their just rights; namely,—representation in the Legislative Council of the colony, and a voice in the government of the country. The Squatters have been accused, and justly too, of apathy; they have held one or two public meetings, and occasionally signed a petition: but what have they complained of, or pe- titioned for? Have they commenced their complaints or made it the chief subject of their petitions, that they are deprived of their rights and privileges, which ought to he considered the birth- right of every British subject? Fixity of tenure—right of pre-emption—and other details respecting the Squatting system, which no doubt are very im- portant to themselves, but which could be much more satisfactorily remedied, if the ...

To the Editor of the Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 7 June 1845

To the Editor of the Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate. DEAR SIR.—I have heard it remarked concerning our meeting at Geelong on the 21st ultimo, that however right and proper it might be to combine together to resist the District Council in a Court of Law, such a measure ought not to have been made the subject of a resolution at a public meeting; that doing so savoured too much of a factious spirit and might be looked upon as an illegal combination to oppose the measures of   Government. Upon reflection I cannot per- ceive that anything improper has been done it this respect. Those better able to judge of the matter than any one composing the meeting have given it as their opinion that the District Council as at present constituted   has no power to levy. We only combine to have the case tried in a Court of Law, and as it is for the good of call that it be decided, it is but just that the expense should fall on all. If such a combination has been m...
