The block is numbered 23 on the government plans; it is bounded on the west by Yarra Street, on the north by Malop street, on the east by Bellerin street, on the south by a street not yet named (Berrimi street?).

THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 11 September 1841
T?Ir ROMAN CATHOLIC CIIUgIcu.-We congratulate the Roman Catholic comn munity on the arrival of the Rev. Michael Ryan, who intends to become a resident in this township. Staunch advocates as we are of the sacred rights of conscience, we can, without incon sistency, express our pleasure at his arrival, and we'hope that no delay may attend the preliminary arrangements for the foundation of a permanent church. The Catholic population is now sufliciently numerous to require the pastoral superintendence of a clergy. man of their own faith, 'and none but the most unreasonable of bigots will deny that the increase of morality and the advancement of civ;lization will be likely to result from'such superin. tendence. The Roman Catholic clergy of this colony are eminently distin guished for the faithful manner in which they discharge their pastoral duties; and Mr Ryan appears likely to maintain their well.earned reputation. lie ar. rived by the steamer on Wednesday, and so early as Friday morni...

BOONOMY OF LABOUR. (From the Graham's Town Journal ) The reader will find soset valuable observa. tions on " Econolly o(f Labour and illlprovement In Agriculture," in Morton's work on Sil. Tihe at tier has often been twitted with his aversionI to cllanlge. In tllhis dhesiveness to custom; it appears he lores not stand alone; arid lit addition to Mr. Mortri's reasons for this characteristic of his class, lie would observe that experiiments in agliculture require more time thanl in otber branches of art, where nlagenuty deals with dead mlltter only, the piroperties of wlich can be m lgorously ascertained, and all its powers thrownl at once into action.

Progress of Disoovery. ANTARCTIC EXPEDITION. Tl's following account o0f thie Ex. pedition, being fronm the pen of Capt. King, may be depended upon as the most authentic that has yet been pub lisled. The expedition having left Englannd, pirceeditd to the southll; touched at. St. Jago, antd then made way to St. lloletua, wl.ere an officer of the royal engineers was left to seperintend the observatory-one of the fixed stations ; thence it went to the Cape of Good hope, where another officer was left to superintend the observations there. The voyage may then be supposed at its cmmetncncemtent. Their first visit was to Kerguelen Landt, where their portable observatories were erected, and a complete series of' observations made with their m.tgntetical alparaits and with the petdulumn. There the ex pudition remained three months, and then proceeded to Van Dieten's land, ori in the nuomentlature of the voyage, to Tastmania, a name certainly Inturt Ienphonical, and but for the misc hievous p...

EMIGRATION TO PORT PHILLIP AND SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 11 September 1841
EMIGRATION To POi TPHILLIP AND SYDNEY. From the Cork Total Abstainer. Whether emigration he an injury or a hene6t to a country, is a question which we willingly leave to the wisdom of political economists. We now have only to deal with the fact as it is, namely, that crowds of our country-. men and women are almost daily wafted from our shores, in search of other and, as they hope, better fortunes. At the present moment, Father Mathew has assisted to rob em:gration of its worst feature, one which worked with deadly effect in blighting the hopes of Irish adventurers, w hether they came from the plough and the free breeses of the coun. try,. or left behind them the sedentary trade,' and the narrow lane In the crowile city. Drutkenness no longer cleaves like a desolating curse to the poor Irishman, no longer outstrips the tall ship, as she bounds over.the wide ocean. no longer anticipates his arrival on foreign shores, and closes the hearts of strangers against.the poor wander ing adve...
CATTLE, &c. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 11 September 1841
CATTLE, &c. From the Sydney Gazette. Milch cows require every evening, a feed of barley, grass, cabhsges that have run to seed, cabbage leaves, marsh. mallows, and other green food; or bran or pollard mixed together, and well moistened with water. Stock yards should be roofed over; it shelters the cattle, and saves the manure from h..ing injured by rain. Cattle should be driven into stock yards every evening; it saves the manure. A stock keeper shouldtlive in a hut near the gate; he should have a gun and watch dog; and should shovel the manure into a corner of the yard. fenced off from the rest, every morning. Autumn is the best time for killing cattle intended for salting, or the buhtcher, before they lose their fat, caused by their spring and summer feeding-as the winter frost nips the grass, and good feed is scarce in winter. Cattle intended for slaughlter,should be kept in separate paddocks; fed with extra food, and driven to market by easy stages. Black and blue flies a...

THE OPIUM SMOKING-SHOP. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 11 September 1841
THE OPIUM SMOKINU-SIuOP. One of the objects at this place, that I had the curiosity to visit, was the opium-smoker in his headen : and cer tainly it is a most fearful sight, although perhaps not so degrading to the eye as a drunkard from spirits, lowered to the level of the brute and wallowing io his filth. 'lieidiot emile and death like stupor, however, of the opium dehauchee has something more awful to the gaze than the bestiality of the latter. Pity, if possible, takes the place of other feelings, as we watch the faded cheek and haggard look of the being abandoned to the power of the drug; whilst disgust is uppermost at the sight of the human creature levelled to the beast by intoxication. -One of the streets in the centre of the town is wholly devoted for the sale of this poison ; and here in the evening, may be seen, after the labours of the day are over, crowds of Chinese, who seek to satisfy their depraved appetite--'l'he rooms where they sit and smoke are surrounidel by wood...
