BARM OR YEAST FROM HOPS. To the Editor of the Sydney Morning Herald. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 17 December 1845
BARM OR YEAST FROM HOPS. To the Editors of the Sydney Morning Herald. GENTLEMEN,--Dr. Ure with alil his las borious and scientific knowledge has not given in his dictionary one property of the hop, for which every settler re, siding up the country ought to culti. Vate it; namely for the purpose of making barm or yeast, leavened bread being more wholesome and easier of digestion than the damper, particularly for children, and even adults, who are not performing very laborious work. From constant use .1 can state posi. tively that in twelve hours, good yeast equal to beer yeast can be made, even. for setting beer as well as bread by the following simple process, which I believe is not generally known, anti every receipt for making artificial yeast must have barm from the brewer's to set it in a state of fermentation. Boil a large handful of hops in three pints of water for half an hour; when a little more than blood warm, say 130 degrees Fahr., add about six spo9nfuls of flour and sug...

MENTAL ARITHMETIC [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 17 December 1845
MENTAL ARITHMETIc. -- Within five miles of Huntsville, Alabama, (says an American journal), there is noi living a negro youth, fourteen years of age, and weighing upwards of fourteen'stone. He has no idea of a God-says he was made by no body,--has not intellect enough to do the work of a slave-never asks for food-was never known: to com mence a conversation-never con tinues one-cannot learn a letter or figure-laughs and moves like an idiot; and yet, notwithstanding all this, is a great genius i "IHis power overnumnbers is extraordinary. 'lake any number under one hundred, and ask him its prodluct when multiplied into itself, or into any other number, and hlie will state it at once, as readily as any one who can give the sum of 12 times 12. He multiplies thousands - adds, subtracts, and divides-with the same certaintyi al though with more mental labour. Ieingasked, ' How much is 99 timues 99 7' he .answered inmmnediately, '9,801.'

MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 17 December 1845
M ELBOURNE. RATHER GooD.-Upon the applica. tion for a publican's general license being read on Saturday, it was rather singular to observe more than one teetotaller testifying to the fact of its refusal proving a public injury. How a person can reconcile this to the phraseology of his pledge "1 to discoun tenance the cause end practice of in. temperance," is no affair ofours: but after all a teetotaller may perhaps so square his conscience as to sincerely believe that a multiplicity of public houses would produce a diminution of drunkards. A-t all events it is rather a good joke, and can only be equalled by the munificence of a certain Melbourne publican, who in the course of last week (good heartedly) transmitted a donation of £1 to the Father Mathew Society to aid them in the purchase of a splendid white banner. At all events Mr Greenaway, tile party applying, must have had an exceedingly strong claim upon the indulgence of the Licensing Bench, as his application was recommended b...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 17 December 1845
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. WELLINGTON FALLS.-On Monday last this interesting and attractive fea ture to mountain pedestrians was visited by a party of gentlemen. The day was particularly favourable, and the quantity of water in the river ent to give effect to the wild granieu of ihe scenery at this romantic ip At a little past noon, when the party were in the chasm at the loot of the Falls, the sun cast a bright stream of light imimediately upon the body of falling water, thus strongly developing with powerful light and shade the outline of tho surrounding masses of rock. To those who have physical power to en dure the roughness of the road, we strongly recommend an early visit. Spring is the best season for the pur pose; there is more water now than at an advanced period of the year, and the weather is less cloudy and hazy. We are glad to state that arrangements are in progress to complete the road which was last year commenced, and opened, for about two miles and a half. No one can credit...
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 17 December 1845
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. Since the abolition of port duoes the increase of the Customs Revenui has filly compensated for the loss of such dues; and other advantages had accrued to the colony in the in creased amount of shipping which ha@ visited the ports.

WRECK OF THE MARINER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 17 December 1845
WRECK OF THE MARINER. From the South Australian. FROM the schooner's log it would appear that the voyage had been fair for ten days, from Oct. 23rd to Nov. 2nd, when it com menced blowing heavily, and at six o'clock, p. m., both masts were carried away. They continued to drift till the 4th November, when they came to an anchor at daylight, within five miles of land ; here they rode out the gale till the 5th, when they started under a Jury-mast with a light breeze. On the 6th in the afternoon, it again came on to blow a &nbsp; gale, and not being able to show any canvass, they drifted till the morning of the 7th, when the vessel struck on the beach, and filled within fifteen minutes. With respect to the proceedings of the relief party, we learn that Serjeant Major Alford left town on Friday morning, at one a. m., for the wreck, with two mounted police constables. Mr Montefiore left later, with P. C. M'Lean, and joined Alford (who had taken with him two more men from the stati...

The Council was to meet on the 9th December. There is not much de pendence to be placed on the above list of names, as, from a letter re ceived in Geelong, we are enabled to state, that one of the gentlemen named (Mr Hopkins) has declined the appointment. MINERALS -We sincerely congratulate the colony upon the discovery of &nbsp; a bed of copper ore within a short distance of the town.
