NEW COLONY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 17 December 1845
NEW COLONY. The Friend of China states that it is generally pretty well known, that if the island of Pulo L.uboan has not already been formally ceded to Great Britain, and taken possession of as a British settlement, such will very shortly be the case. As a British colony, It may ultimately be a place of great importance, not only as a naval stat.ion calculated to protect our com nrercs from the swvarmnis of piratical vessels which infest the seas which sur round Borneo, but also as the seat of an extensive tralic drawn from that magnificent island-an island fertile in the productions of the tropica, and rich in minerals of the most valuable kind, wslich only requires internal peace and protectiotio from the rapine of the predatory hands, who for ages have comma?lsded the'mouLths of the numerous navigable rivers, to place it among the first of the Eastern Islands.
