LOCAL INTELLIGENCE, &c. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 13 September 1841
fiOCAL ZNTEZZGLLENCY, &c. LAD SALRi.-On Saturday last, Mr Charles Williams arrived from Mel bourne by the steamer, and although the vessel arrived late, lie determined that the numerous tradesmen who were awaiting his arrival for the sale of suburban ground, which had been ad. vertised twice by him, should not be disappointed; a bonfire was therefore speedily lit opposite Mir Mack's Hotel, and a numerous assemblage of persons took place. Mr Williams stated that the sale wae to be unreserved, and the ctbtrpetition at first'wasspirited.; but a shower of rain coming on, he was obliged to adjourn to Mr Mack's long room, which, from the crowd who flocked into it, became much heated, and the sale flagged. However, the land on an average realized £15 per acre, upon the shortest terms we ever knew for an auction; and although to the owner it may not be as much as he might wish, still we think the sale ought, in the present state of affairs, to be considered satisfactory, Mr. William...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. Captain. Cheyne's crab-built bridge at Perth is fast tiiublihrg to ruins, not wiithstandinding the ging constantly employed in repairing it. The licensed victuallers of Hobart Town' have obtained a complete vic tory over the police informers, and the same body at Launceston are be. stirring themselves for a similar pur pose.

PROGRESS OF TEMPERANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 20 September 1841
PROGRESS OF TEMPERANCE. From tile Sydney Advocate. It is pleasant to report progress, when the state of things is satisfactory; and we think we can discern something like a movement is favour of Temper ance. Letters of sympathy from the country, and words of encouragement in town,raise a hope that Temperance is on the advance. Incidental circum stances may have affected this: a great cause is often indebted for its success, not to its intrinqic merits, but to cer tain accidents with which it has been connected. Tile pressure of the times, may be one of these accidents. Tile colonists, beinig pinched in the pocket, begin to discover that spirit is an evil luxury, and that more wine and beer are drunk than is necessary. They discover, that a poor man's drop costs him more than food for his family; that a social glass swallows up a large por tion of a fixed income; and that a moderate sideboard is according to the rank of the individual, an expense of from fifty to five hundred-pounds ...
