OVER-TRADING. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 11 October 1841
OVER -TRADING. 'rom the Australasian Record. That an unexampled depression has been palpahly evident in the export trade and-'shipping to these colonies, for the last four or five months, is matter of notoriety to all in the least degree connected with that quarter of the globe; and it can scarcely be supposed that we have been either unconcerned or unobservant spectators ; we have witnessed an all but universal stagnation prevading our export trade ; and as a necessary consequence, the various vessels loading for those distant settle ments, very far exceeding their ap pointed times of sailing. We fully admit the existence of this temporary gloom (for temporary only we believe it will -be found), and it shall now be our endeavour to point out the causes from which it has arisen. We believe it will be found that there are two proximate -causes' for the present :de. pression : they are, the present scarcity of money amount most of the Austral asian houses, and the glutted markets in t...

CHOICE OF A HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 11 October 1841
CHOICE OF A HORSE. In Mr Stewart's lecture on the choice of a horse, at the School of Arts, after a short preface the lecturer said, I would address myself to those who are not particular in their choice of a horse. They look at the animal, and if that his appearance please them, the only other thing they regard is the price, and that being reasonable, or supposed to be so, the horse is purchased. He may be a bargain; but in ninety-nine cases out of an hundred, horses bought in this careless way are bought for more than they are worth; and very often the purchaser finds, when too late, that the horse is not at all suitable -nor fit for his master's work : he may be too old or too young; he may want strength, or he may want speed, or he may want endurance; he may be lifeless, vicious, unsound, unsafe or uneducated . How all these things are to be dis covered before the borse is purchased, cannot be told in two words. Atter a general glance, in wh;eh you judge whether the horse's size...
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. FATAL RENCONTRE WITH THE MURRAY NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 11 October 1841
SOUTh AUSTRALIA. FATAL RENCONTRE WITH THIB MURRAY N ATIVPS. Yesterday morning, Mr. Robinson arrived overland from New South Wales, bringing accounts that his party, with the stock under their charge, after two desperate affrays with the natives on the R.ufus, had reached South Australia in safety. It is clear on the surface, that no party can, for the present, pass safely from the New South Wales territory into South Australia, unless sufficiently numerous and well armed; and it is also clear, that so long as there is a demand for stock here, or our splendid p.sture ranges are but partially occu pied, the road will be regularly forced by parties unlikely to exhibit any very scrupulous regard for the means which they may think best suited to provide for their own safety. In a few years not a native will be left on the Murray cr the Rufus, unless, indeed, some friendly understanding be obtained. The following is the statement of Mr. Robinson : " In company mith Mr. Warrener and Mr. Ba...
