CLEARING LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 20 December 1845

CLEARING LAND. A correspondent of the Hobart Town Observer gives the following hints for clearing heavily timbered. land:-The settlers at the westward, and [ presume those npon the Huoon and other thickly timbered localities, have discovered that to clear land effectually is no longer at tended by profitable results. * They have found that even to fell trees, leaving the stump and burning off tho trunk and branches is unprofitable. A new system is, therelore, adopted. The larger trees are killed without the la bour of felling them, and when dead they are not more detrimental to vege. table growth than the mere stump. . To kill the tree speedily and in an effec tual manner is, however, of the great est importance; otherwise the tenacious growth of our indigenous timber will prostrate the efforts of the agriculturist. I have known settlers bestow much u'n necessary labour in barking a tree from top to bottom. By this process it re tains life for two years, during which period the crop...

THE harvest operations around Geelong are now busily going on, although good reapers are scarce. Now that the full extent of the damage by caterpillars can be esti mated, we are happy to state that the destruction by them is much less than was expected from their first formidable appearance. This faVourable change has been owing to the very short space of time which elapsed between their ap. pearance and disappearance, while on some extensive farms they did not appear at all. .

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 20 December 1845

INDIA. Extract of a latter received in Geelong from Loodianah, dated the 17th-August.-" You must know, if you are not already aware of the fact, that Loodianah is only four miles from the river Sutledge, which sepa-ý rates us from Punjaub, a country wherein one day our troops must take up their quarters. The country itself is all at sixes and sevens, and almost daily fresh accounts are re ceived of some vile treachery among the chiefs and princes of it. The troops are a most unmanageable and rebellious set, constantly plundering and committing outrages on villages on this as well as on the other side. At this stat on, where formerly two regiments was the fu'l strength, we have available troops amounting to about 8,000 men. Ferozeepore, about 70 or 80 miles distant, has about 12,000 or 13,000 men, and Umballah a force of 12,000 men, so that we can make a very pretty display in case they do not accede to the terms which it is understood are about to be"offered by our government.

The effect of this address, copies of which were immediately circulated in great numbers through out all Germany, was quite astonish ing; and following it up, aided by the co-operation of many influential parties, both lay and c erical, John Rougo has already made wonderful progress towards the attainment of the great object which ...

WVe had previously heard the same report, but took no notice of it, as it seemed to stand in need of confirmation.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA, :'A gentleman of good taste and jndugrent has called our attention to the suflocating heat of the town during the summer months, and sug gested that it might be lessened were the plan followed which has been adopted at the Cape, and avenues of large trees planted along the streets. We confess that the idea has pleased us much. Our streets are of sufli cient width to admit such groves, which would be highly ornamental as well as alfording a grateful shade from tho sun. That the presence of vegetable life is favourable to animal health, and that it promotes cheer fulness of spirits, is well known ; and we see no difficulty in carr} ing our friend's recommendation into effect. It would be necessary, of course, that each individual tree should be for a time fenced round. Each inhabitant could take' charge of those before his own premises, and the police could exercise a general vigilance-a heavy fine being inflicted on persons wan tonly damaging them.

THE COMIC BLACKSTONE. 'OF GUARDIAN AND WARD.-A Guar, dian is a sort of temporary parent to a minor,-a kind of tarpauling thrown over the orphan to sheld him from the storms of life during his infancy-or, if we may use an humbler illustration, a guardian is a kind of umbrella, put uo by the law over the ward, to keep off the pelting of the pitiless storm till the years of discretion are arrived at. There are various kinds of guardians, such as guardians by nature, and guar dians for nature, who are of corrs-lthe pairents of the child ; for if an estate be left to an infant, the father is guar dian, and must account for the profits; but as the father can control the child's arithmetical studies, it is easy for the lnatter to be brought up in blessed igno rance of accounts, and thus the parent may easily mystify the child when the profits of the estate are to be accounted for.
