EMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 4 October 1841
EMIGRATION. From the Algelnaluhe Zeitung. England is daily prceeeding nearer to perfection in the system, and It is ol interest to Germany to know what goes on there ii, this important mnatter for e?ttilaond, Gcrmany. and Ctina are tie only countries wh~ich,iii consequence of their h'gh state of civilization, and con sequert'reduindHin'cy of'population, have an Emigrationou a Iarge scale. In China and ii.G·rmany-it is left to chiance, and to individual energy ; and although the emigra!nts ol these countries do ntot prosper the less for that, yet their mother country loses all the advantages which she would have a right to expect from the spreading of her descendanits.

OUTRAGES BY TlE BLACKS. FiSOM A COitIESPONDENT. On Tuesday the 14th September, a shepherd in the employ of Mr. J. D. Broinfield, of loncourt, came to his master, anfl requested to have his flock counted, and on doing so, it was found that there were 125 sheep missing. A party immediately went in search of them, but were unsuccessful, not even finding the tracks of any off the run. Wednesday passed, and stll they were not more fortunate. On Thursday morning it was suspected that tihe natives must have taken them from the sthepherd during the day time, and had driven them off itnto the forest. Mea. sures were taken accordingly, when the matter became perfectly certain, for near neighbour cameup and sta'ed that. he had found a sheep with both its legs broken, and could also trace .w?here others had been driven across his iun.

TO CORR1ESPONDENTS. Reality's Dream " cannot be inserted. It contains too many allusions to the " i!owers below "' to render it agreeable to ears polite. The subject of the poem, too, is so grossly uncharitable and in decent (no less than sending a consign ment of the Geelong oflicials to the lower regions), that no one with any sense of propriety could dream of its publication. e'Ionig lObetrtiser.

THE CORN LAWS VIEWED IN RELATION TO THEIR EFFECT ON AUSTRALIAN COMMERCE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 11 October 1841
TIHE CORN LAWS VIEWED IN iELATION TO THEIR EFFECT ON AUSTRALIAN COMMERtCE. THE discussion which is at present agi tating Great Britain displays the 'unmiti gated selfishness of human nature in a very strong light. The Ministry ihave made the repeal of the Corn Laws a cabinet question, because they could not-have continued in office without making some bold stroke, which might afford them an excuse for appealing to the passions of a majority of the people. The financiers follow in the wakie, because they can see no other practicable means of 'making up the de ficiency in the revenue. The speculative political economists clamour-for the repeal, because it accords with !their theoretical dogmas. The manufacturing population demand cheap bread and extended markets for their goods, for the obvious reason that their share of the transaction will be clear and certain profit. without regarding the ruin that may threaten others. The land lords lead :the oppositiont ranks, becanse the, thllre...

LICENSING ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 11 October 1841
LTCENSING ACT.-The clause in this act which prohibits the sale of. spirits in smaller quantities than two gallons, by any unlicensed person, is a very severe one; and however just and beneficial it may be in particular instances, it is frequently the instrument of punishment to an extent outrageously beyond the degree merited by the offence. In the sttict letter of the law, the Governor himself dare not offer a glass of wine to a friend, nor a settler give a pannikin of grog to his sheep.washers, without sub jecting himself to a penalty of £30, the law holding that " proof of the de" livery shall be taken to be good and sufficient prima facid evidence of money. or' other considerition being given for the same, so as to support a conviction, unless proof shall be made to the con trary, to the satisfaction of the justice hearing the case." Now as there is no standard whereby the length, breadth, and depth of a magistrate's " satisfac. tion" can be measured, the simplest act of hospita...
RASCALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 11 October 1841
RASCA.LITY. Banking Syslem in America. - The report on the Banks exhibits a whole. sa'e system. of' fraud and rascality of the most disgusting nature ; six Banks' were foourid in such a 'condition that. injunctions had been- applied for and, iasted. Ii .the Jackson Country B}snk a horrible system of fraud was disco vered. Among other instances, eleven boxes were discovered, containing a superfices of coin, altogether amount ing to 5099 dollars (reckoning the coin found elsewere), whilst the substratum contained lead, tenpenn nnils, and window glass broken into 'ni01lipiefes. Notdithstaundirig this, the statement of the Bank, dated Ithree.:days ý:belfrre, claimed possession! of 20,000 dollars in specie. On an examination of its affairs, there appeared a real deficiency of assets to meet the liabilities of the Bank of 44,701 dollars ! Of the Exchange Bank of Shiawasse (Michi gan), the Commissioners report that no part of the capital stock appears ever to have been paid in ; that seven...
MELBOURNE. JUDGE WILLIS v. THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 11 October 1841
N ELBO?tN E. JUDGE WILLIS V. TIlE PRESS. In addition to last week's occurrences, we have to record the following events : on "aturday 2nd October, at the Police Office, Mr Arden was called upon to enter into sureties to keep the peace to. wa:ds Judge Willis, for twelve month'. Mr Arden claimed to be heard in his defence, and proceeded to show cause why he should not be called upon to find sureties, in support of which the principal reason advanced was, that Mr Arden having already complied with the injunctions of a law which renders it obligatory on newspaper proprietors to find sureties in the case of estreat. ment for libel, and as that law is in it self sufliciently stringent to protect Judge Willis, or any party who might be maliciously libelled, and upon a ver dict having been found upon a properly constituted trial for the same, he (Mr A.) was justified in pleading remission from a recognizance which, while it increases the legal liability incurred, is demanded to obtain a jud...
