CAPTAIN FYANS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 27 September 1841
CAPTAIN FYANS, The Port Phillip Herald contains the folloiing scandalous paragraph respecting the Cr'own Commissioner for the Portland Bay district. CAPTAIN FvANss.-wVe'understand that this go vernmeot oflicer is exceedingly uinpopular, and has lately been amusing hiniself by the exercise of exceedingly arbitrary authority, which has rendered it neces.sary to bring the matter under the notice of Sir George Gipps. Tlhe settlers in a body are desirous of his immediate removal from office, and are about petitioning the Governor to attain that object, and to get some other commis sioner appointed to succeed him. We shall allude to this matter at length in a future number. The best answer to the abuva string-of exaggerations, will be found in the follow. ing FACTS... . The Port Phillip Herald has never pub. lfished any.. instance of the alleged unwar rantable cohiduct of Captain Fyans. Not oie of the Melbourne papers during thie laust twelve months has ever reporled any matter prejudicia...
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. LOCUSTS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 27 September 1841
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. LOCUSTS. We regret to say, that accounts continue to be received by us of the extensive and destructive ravages of the locust. This is a visitation pecu liar to several warm and temperate climates, and is often one of the most severe which can possibly befal a country. The true character of it can, indeed, only be judged of by those who have witnessed the really fright ful ravages of this apparently insig nificant insect. To such observers only the full meaning of the emphatic language of Scripture, where it is said-** I will restore to you the years that the Locusts hath eaten, the canker. wornm, and the caterpillar, and the primerworm, my great army which I sent among you," can be fully under stood. Any track of country, no matter how fair and flourishing, on which they alight, often assumed, in one day, and frequently in a few hours, the appearance of having been utterly blighted. Thisis-sometimes the case in Spain and Portugal, but more often in the northern p...

SYDNEY. FALL OF MESSRS. HUGHES AND HOSKING'S NEW FLOUR MILLS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 27 September 1841
SYDNEY. FALL OF MESSRS. HUGHIES AND IIOKING'8 NEW FLOURt MILI.S. On Friday morning, the 10th Sep. tember, about four o'clock, consider. able alarm was caused in the neighbour. hood of Hughes and HIosking's new steam mills, by a tremendous crash, which awakened the quiet inhabitants of that quarter from their morning slumbers. None knew the cause of the noise, and each feared some evil, the extent or existence of which they could not then decide upon; it was feared that the boiler of the steam engine had burst, but it was then recollected that it was not at work on that evening; much anxiety. -was, however, entertained that some unfortunate individual might be buried in the fall of the building, and daylight was anxiously looked for. At length the day broke, and many were assembled around the spot, en. qniring the extenit of the injury. Hap pily no lives were lost, and the premises had not sustained damages as serious as had been anticipated. The ruin was confined to the immense flou...
VISIT OF SIR GEORGE GIPPS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 27 September 1841
VISIT OF SIR GeORGE GIPPS. NOTWIT3STAsNDING the decrees of the Melbourne Press on this matter, Sir George is not likely to pay us a visit so soon as was expected. The Legislative Council will probably sit for at least a month longer, the proposed measure for the "Amendment of the Law " not being one that can be hastily .greed upon. It is also probable that the question of the amenability of the datives to British law, will conme under discussion: and by the time these matters are disposed of, there is a chance of the arrival of dispatches about the Municipal 'Corporation Act. Upon the whole, we think that the Governor's visit is a very problematical affair. While we are in expectation of re ceiving a visit from Sir George Gipps, it appears that a similar excitement; is prevalent at Port Nicholson, in expecte. tion of a visit from Captain H6bsod, the Governor of New Zealand. A meet. ing was held in Wellington, to.- take into consideration the'manner in which his Excellency 'should be...
SKETCH OF A SHEPHERD'S DUTIES IN NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 27 September 1841
SKETCHOFA SHEPHERD'S DUTIES IN NEW SOUTH WALES. (Front the Appendlx to the Report of the Conm S nmittee oin Emigration, 1841.) The duties of a shepherd in New South WVales are exceedingly simple : - a flock usually consists of from 400 to 500.ewes, or from 600 to 1000 dry sheep; 3 flocks being folded at one station. The shepherd is required to take his sheep from the fold in the morning not later than an hour after sunrise, to keep sight of them on the pastures, throughout the day, and to bhing them back at sun-set to thle fold. They are then counted over and left in charge of the eight watchman, whose duty it is to take care of the flocks in the folds until the morning, when each. flock is again counted and delivered over to the shepherd. In the lamtbing season, on well-managed establish ments, the ewes about to lamb are withdrawn from the flocks and kept separate, under the care either of the watchman, or of some other person appointed for the purpose for a- few days, until the la...

APPROPRIATION OF `TBE LAND REVENUE.

VAN DIEMEN's LAND. SThe Weather - H-as been latterly for the townsmen beautiful, but for the gardens and fields, it has beetn such as is likely to prove destructive to the cattle and crops. In the valley of the Coal River, and other parts of the country on this side of the island, the springs and water holes are completely dry. Unless we have speedy rains, the consequence will be very injurious and serious to many. From the Laun ceston side, we are happy to hear that the rains have been very genial atnd prevalent. - Morning Advertiser.
POLICE REFORM. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 27 September 1841
POLICE REFORM. THIE following[ extracts from the Syd. ney papers will show that a salutary' system of reform in the police has been commenced by the new Superintendent, Mr Miles. We do not expect any change in this district untili.the pay of the con. stabulary be augmented, and the system of half-fines abolished. Last week a man was actually takein out of his bed, where he was" sleeiping himself sober," he was hurried off to the watch.house, and would have been fineod or im. prisoned, had not a respectable gentle man, who witnessed the transaction, sent a note to the Bench in.explanation. 'Another circumstance in aggravation of the conduct of the 'constabulary, was that the man had met with a serious accident a short time before, by the wheel ofa dray passing over his ribs, and oneof the bullocks treading on his face, by which rhe was much injured so that his bed was certainly the fittest place for him. Such occurrences, we are happy to say, are not now so com mon in Geelong as form...

The proposed measure is similar to that which was ejected last session.

The meeting was appointed to take place on Saturday morning; but it was destined to end in the usual &nbsp; unromantic style of such exhibitions - with neither broken hearts nor broken skins. One of the parties HONORABLY kept the appointment, and had the felicity of whetting his appetite in the cold morning air for a few hours, anxiously waiting for his more discreet opponent, who was afterwards found snugly muffled up in bed.
