CHAMBER OF COMMERCE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 4 October 1841
C[IAMBEK OF COMMERCE. The Chamber of Commerce is another instance of the'evil consequences which [low from improper comhinalion. The. merchnnts of Melrbourne have combined together to regulate each other's charges and to bring about a forced rhange in the mnnngement of each other's af~hirs. " Every mah's hand is lifted against his brother,"--lhey cqn'see the motes in one anether's eyes, but cannot see the: beams in their own', An ang1"y; ha?Ir.d has cuusequentlyl sprung up between rormer frieiids, and the whole: Babel of them will "aool disperse in Lwlce confountded confusion.

THE BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 4 October 1841
• TIE BEACJCS. - In another 'column will be found a trustworthy account of one of the many daring depredations upon the property ofilhe settlers, which are of such fre quent occurrence under the. present system pursued by the Protectors. The outrage on Mr'. Blrofie|ld's pro perty is not a solitary instance ; but otne of the INEVITABLE consequences of the system pursued. The South Australian plani of " concentration" is here dis played inits worst:features.-· The ab. origln's require :dn extensive range of counitry as hunting grounds ;'and wrhen several tribes are gathered into one mass, they must eilhtr sturve, or live by outrage and plunder upon thre neiglh. bauring seltiers.

Early in the last year an enterprise ?company.. in-rlrab-fi tted-oardon'ex pedi-. tion to essertain, by careful survey; whether it is practicable to connect the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean by a ship canal. across the Isthmus of Panama. We learn from a letter received by a gentleman in this city yesterday, from a New Orleans correspondent, that the expedition arrived at the mouth orthe Clhagres, and .commenced operations about the last of August, and that on the-leth December, partial surveys of two different routes had left on the minds of ihe engineers an impression Sthat the long- contemrplated enterprise 'was not onil praeticable, but tlhat a rcanal of salficient capacty for the largest ships might be constructed at a cost much below any of the estimates which have hitherto been published.

JUDGE WILLIS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 4 October 1841
'?UoGe i I~r.-ll[Iooever much we may admire the straightforward and fearless manner in which our Resident Judge pertorm8 his duty, we must con. tess that he sometimes carries these qualities to an extreme 'which borders upon insult and tyranny. The manner in which he lhas acted towards Mr. Arderi is far (ron, being creditable to him; for it is evident that his resent ment is of the most inexorable descrip tion; and he scarcely seemed to be satisfied wilh the measure oa his own vengeance. An article, commenting in a somewhat severe mnnner upon the Judge, appeared in Wednesday's Ga zotte; Mr. Arden refused to give up the author; and.?s, forthwith ap prehended, and, %~vm~%ji efore the Police Mlagistrate, . oother Jus tices, asssociat at! ut ~i~illlts,,hPn he wvas nrder~d t~o~su iretics to the amount of ,£400 to keep the peace in future; and when he attempted to speak in his defence, he was preventedi by the mandate of the Judge. 5lr.1 Willis says he "is determined to maintain' the hono...
