RELIGIOUS ESTABLISHMENTS OF CORIO. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 20 September 1841
RELIGIOUS E?RTABLISHM?ENTS OF COJInO. It does not come within thle province of a newspaper to touch upon religious sub jects, except as forming items of general intelligence, or in so far as they may affect the tnemporal and political concerns of a community. We look upon the advance ment of religion as one of the '" elements of prosperit)" wlhich materia.ll affects tile destinies of nations. London, the greatesl commercial cmpnrium in the world, carries upon its armnorial bearines, the moto of " Domine dirige nos," and the commercial metropolis of Scotland displays the legend of" Let the city flourish by the preaching of the word." It therefore is a matter of congratulation, even in a worldly point of view, that the various religiots bodies recorgnised by the Colonial Chutrch Act are all bestirring themselves with praiseworlhy zeal in the proinotion of one great end (the edvancement( of mnorality'arid the spread of upright principles) by the various means within thieir power.

SMALL FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 20 September 1841
SMALL FAIIMS. A late number of thle Cornwall Chro nicle has some excellent observations on the utility and ultimate consequences ot settling down many of the immigrant families on small portions of land in the interior. This principle of action it has been our object to advocate, not from sperulative theory, but from having witnessed its beneficial results in other colonies. We cannot this week afford much space to lay its various great ad vantages before the public; but will suggest to the landed proprietors, who have sense enough to adopt this plan, that they should do so as in many parts of British America, namely--sny'a pro prietor, in order to increase the value of his property, and his labour capa bilities, lor making his produce avail able, determines on opening for location, on equitable terms, a portion of his estate, say out of 5000, 500 acres. The latter is sorted out over the space of 1000acres. This 1000 acres is divided into twenty farms of fifty acres each, in America...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 20 September 1841
SYDNEY. In the Legislatiie Council, Mr James Macarthur suggested tile propriety of Government giving some aid towards the erection of siloes in various parts of the country districts. WVe would go a step further and state that they should be formed at the etire ex pense of tile Government, who should charge a moderate sum for the storage, for we are satisfied that if the affair is left to private enterprise, we shall look in vain for a speedy accomplishment of this very desirable object. Had we as other colonies and countries have, an Agricultural Association, the erection of siloes might with safety be consigned to their manngement;', how ever, by whatever means they are erected, we traist' that no farther loss oftime will take place, the ecpense of makitg a siloe capable of containing one thousand btshels will not cost much over £20.-Sydney Gazette.

TRIAL OF BON-JON. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 20 September 1841
TRIAL OF BON-JON. Bon-jon, an aboriginal black, was in- dicted for the wilful murder of Yamer- ween, by shooting him with a carbine, at Geelong, on or about the 14th July. His Honor the Judge first directed the Jury to ascertain whether the pri- soner had sufficient knowledge to put in a plea against the jurisdiction of the Court. The Rev. Francis Tuckfield deposed that he knew the prisoner, and had opportunity of judging of the extent of his capacity. He believed that the prisoner entertained some ideas of a Supreme being-they were not original ideas, and were very imperfect-not sufficient to enable him to understand the nature of an oath-he might have an idea of a future state, but not of an oath. He did not think the prisoner understood the proceedings then going &nbsp; on, and had not sufficient capacity to put in any other plea than that of guilty or not guilty. Murder is not always considered a crime amongst the blacks. He could not instruct the prisoner to draw a tech...
PORT ESSINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 20 September 1841
PORT ESSINGTON. From the Perth Inquirer. The following short acccount of Port Essington is contained in a letter written from that place in February last, addressed to a gentleman in this colony, and may not prove uninterest- ing to our readers. We have no recollection of the " disgraceful ac- counts" alluded to by the writer, so far as the Swan River journals are concerned:– "From the accounts published in the Swan River papers, and after- wards in the Sydney press, by the officers of the Brittomart, you will naturally form but an indifferent opinion of this country. I am happy to say, from ocular demonstration, I am enabled to contradict nearly word for word, their disgraceful account. I should first tell you that these per- sons, although here several months, never, any one of them, walked or rode out as far as five miles from the settlement, and the greater proportion scarcely left their ship; and yet these persons from mere prejudice and other peculiar motives, attempt to give ...
DISMEMBERMENT OF AUSTRALIA FELIX. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 20 September 1841
DISMEEMBERMENT OF AUSTRALIA FELIX. &nbsp; &nbsp; —A spirited meeting of the colonists was held in Melbourne on Wednesday last, to protest against the iniquitous attempt of the Land and Emigration Commissioners to procure the annexa- tion of Portland Bay to South Australia. We cannot think that there are any grounds for alarm on this matter, the only foundation for the report being the letter of the Commissioners, dated July, 1840, in recommendation of the measure, and which we were the first to publish about a month ago. We look upon the Commissioners as having been guilty of grossly insulting conduct nay heartless villany, and therefore give credit to the colonists for the spirited manner in which they have resented the attempt. The Melbourne papers contain a very meagre report of the speeches. The Separation Committee have re- ceived, through their secretary, Mr Kerr, a letter from John Richardson, M. P., our parliamentary advocate in England, acknowledging the rec...
THE GOVERNOR'S VISIT TO GEELONG. DECLARATION THAT CORIO SHALL BE A FREE WAREHOUSING PORT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 20 September 1841
THE GOVERNOR'S VISIT TO GEELONG, DECLARATION THAT CORIO SHALL BE A FREE WAREHOUSING PORT. It has been unanimously voted by our Melbourne contemporaries that Sir George Gipps SHALL come to Port Phillip immediately. It is therefore expedient that we should lose no time in making preparations for his recep- tion at Geelong. In doing so, we must not outrage the rites of hospitality, by offering any wanton insults to our noble guest; but bear ourselves with all dignified urbanity. We must avoid rude- ness on the one hand, and on the other, servility. In addressing him upon the subject of our grievances, we must for- get the past, and avoid all upbraiding allusions to his former errors of policy, which we may suppose arose from imperfect information, and the impos- sibility of his becoming personally acquainted with the bearings of the questions which were laid before him for decision. Our object should be to produce such an impression upon his mind as will insure to us his favorable rega...

AMENABILITY OF THE ABORIGINAL NATIVES TO BRITISH LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 27 September 1841
AMENABILITY OF THE ABORIGINAL NATIVES TO BRITISH LAW. TIiE late proceedings on the trial of Bon jon ftr the murder of n fellow-black, have been of at somewhat startling description. For upwards of fifty years, the fact of the natives beingt amenable to British law, has never been disputed iand nowall at once it is ascertaiined, that in matters relating to their transactions one. with another they are'entirely independent, and that all their savage customs, although of the most brutal and murderous description, are tacitly re c6gnised by the British Governmeit:. Wre are inclined to think that Judge WVil is has taken a correct legal viei? of the question; and that the universal amenability to the British law of alLindividuals within the settled parts of this coloriy, having never been expressly proclaimed,:the, aborigines cannot legally beheld to acknowledge its supremacy. : iThe discussion will, ii'e have no douibt be set completely at rest by a Proclamation from the Governor, or by ...
