No Title [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Intelligencer — 31 December 1851

Ir is now almost a matter of certainty that a considerable part of the crops will be last from want of labourers. In some cases thirty-five shillings an acre have been offered without effect for reapers. The immediate result of this state of ffairs will not he so injurious as the ulti mate effect. A great many farmers have resolved to abandon their occupation for the next twelve months. There will Ie few acres ploughed and sown next season. This will indeed be a deplorable consaquence, and, if it were an INErT ABLE result of the gold discoveries, would almost be a full set-off against their ad vantage. We do not, however, consider the calamity a necessary one, ani sincerely hope that at the commenceicent of the second session of the Legislative Council, His Excellency the Governor will strengthen his hands by seking the car dial co-operation of the representatives of the people. The gold is a portion of the Co::ix WEATIT , 8 and should be husbanded or disposed of by the repre santat...

LEGISLATIVE DOINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Intelligencer — 31 December 1851

LEGISLATIVE DOINGS. When the United States achieved in dependence fears were entertained that the union would speedily be dissolved from legislative inaptitude and internal dissension; but: these fears were dissi pated by the wisdom which presided over the inauguration of the rep.b!ic. The calm resolve of Washington, the practical wisdom of Franklin, the astuteness of Jefferson, and the combined counsels of other men not so celebrated, but many of them not inferior to them in sagacity and prudence, carried the infant republic through all dificulties, and laid the foundation of as great and remarkable an empire as had hitherto appeared. It is somewhat of a descent to talk of Australia on the same ground, seeing that it is but a congeries of British colonies, whose legislative independence has been achieved with comparative ease, and with the free, if not the immediate assent of the mother country. It is said that great occasicns produca great men ; and there Las been no. occasion for...

SPIRIT OF THE BRITISH PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Intelligencer — 31 December 1851

SPIRIT OF THE BRITISH PRESS. (From the Illustrated News.) THE world is startled by a new an- nouncement. California, if some recent   intelligence which appears in the daily papers do not turn out to be a hoax, is no longer the only " El Drado." Brother Jonathan has of late, to use a popular phrase, "been taking the shine out of us," he has been going a-head in every direction. The discovery of the gold of California was the first great achieve- ment by which of late years he astonished the old world and the new; and to this feat he has lately added Mr. Hobbs and his picklocks, and commodore Stevens and his yacht. As regards locks, the English makers seem to be fairly beaten by the acute, patient, and skilful Yankee; and, " the unkindest cut of all," on the superiority of our naval architecture, the late doings on the shores of the Isle of Wight, show that we have much to learn from our young and vigorous friends of America. But all in good time. We have made a beginnin...
