CONSTANTINOPLE, MAY 29. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 25 October 1841
CONSTANTINOPLE, MAY 20. - The news from the provinces becomes every day more alarming. The insurrection. ary movements in Bulgaria were the result of an extensive conspiracy in all the Turkish European provinces, which prematurely declared itself in consequence of the acts of violence committed by the Albanians at Nisse. Tranquility was far from being re established. Albanian deserters con tinued to overrun the neighbourhood of Boultchonk, committing the greatest excesses. The same scenes have oc curred at Trebizonde, where the population, consisting of Christians, Turks, and Jews, immediately went over to the Russian territory, where they were provided with money and promised exemption from taxes for ten years. In Syria troubles have also broke out, and some Turkish troops have been driven back by the moun taineers. Its, Crete the insurrection is complete, raising recruits, distributing arms, and furnishing men throughout the Archipelago,-Timnes. No Compromise with the Tories - Mr....

DRY HOT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 25 October 1841
DRY ROT. I recollect, whilst at Liverpool a few years ego, noticing several coasters loading at one of the docks, with hits of old iron, and I was not a little sur prised and puzzled at the answer given to my enquiry-for what use such a cargo was intended-that " it was to pe converted into copper." I went away, considering the reply as.a kind of hoax upon my credulity -a display of the go-along-shore sailor's wit upon a stranger-somewhat similar to the Yankee skipper's, who being asked his longitude, replied, that he never fatigued himself with keeping a reckoning-to this, in surprise, the boarding officer desired to know how he found his way to and from the States - " I guess it is my custom, officer, nfiitlii run to the West Indies, to drop a shingle every day at noon, and so I find my way back by them I" A Lieutenant of one of the United States frigates, stationed in the Pacific, having borro'wed some remarks, among which this anecdote was noted; wrote in pencil against it, " ver...

WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 25 October 1841
WooL.- IBesides the Deva and the Kilmaurs, already advertised, we have to notice the arrival of the Harriet in the harbour of Geelong. As appear aces go at present, the quantity of wool shipped at this port will be very nearly equal to the quantity shipped at Melbourne this season, and there can be little doubt but that in the course of a few years, Corio will be the principal port for the export of wool in the Australian colonies. THE CUSTOMS UEGULATIONS. - The absurd,;Tyrannical a estrikionis under which those connected with the ship ping interest are compelled to act, in the entry or clearance of any vessel trading between this port and the neighbouring colonies, become every day more and more intolerable. The brig Harriet arrived at Geelong on Fri. day last, and the owners will be com pelled to be at a loss of several days before bulk can be broken, or business of any kind transacted ; the Captain intended to proceed to Melbourne to day, to pass entry, but owing to the non-punct...
LOSS OF THE INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 25 October 1841
LOse OF THE INDIA. The ship India, Captain Hugh Camp bell, sailed from Greenock on the 4th of June last, bound to Port Phillip. with 198 souls on board, crew included, and was-totally destroyed by fire on the 20th July, in 16 south latitude, and 33 west longitude, under the following circumstances :- The third mate and one of the boys were below about one o'clock, p. m , drawing off spirits, when the candle they used accidentally fell on some spilled rum, which immediately caught fire, and the flames spread with such rapidity that all efforts at ex. tinguishing the tremendous blaze were unavailing, and the ship soon became one mass of flame. Another ship, a French whaler, was fottunately in sight, about nine miles to windward, but nearly an hour elapsed ere those on board of her became aware of the state of the India. On observing her condition she immediately bore down, and on nearing, lowered all her boats, and used every exertton to rescue the unfortunate sufferers. The India's b...

CHINA AND NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 25 October 1841
CHINA AND NEW SOUTH WALES. From the Sydney Temperance Advoate. China is a semi-barbarous state, - knows that opium is poison, and forbids its manufacture and importation. New South Wales, a penal colony of a civilized European state, knows spirit to be poisonous, and allows its importa. tion and manufacture. China knows that opium is an intoxi cating drug, and that its use is destruc tive of morals, of property, and of public peace; it therefore denounces it. New South Wales knows the same of spirit, yet most cordially embraces it. China would prevent the dissolute habits engendered by opium from being formed. New South Wales cultivates the habits and tosters the propensities created by spirit ; it legalizes the sale of spirit, and patronizes thac sale by the estab lishment of houses for its distribution throughout the land. In these particulars which is the more civilized government of the two ! The wisdom of Joseph (taught of God) suggested the erection of store houses for corn ag...

AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 25 October 1841
AGRICULTURE. We have noticed with considerable interest, the various reports of the state of the weather, the condition of the crops, &c. in the northern and middle districts of the colony; and we are sorry to say, that another season of scarcity is almost certain to ensue in those pro. vinces. While we have been enjoying a succession of favorable alternations of weather in this district, the older settled portions of the colony have been suffering , under a continued drought, and the universal opinion is, that the crops are almost completely ruined, and that no change in the weather can save them. It is also a mistaken impression, that the quantity of flour in the colony is sufficiently large to compensate for the anticipated deficiency in the ap proaching harvest. The following report is taken at ran dom from a host of others, and will serve to give an idea of the prospects of the agriculturists of the middle district: - " Upper Hunter, Merton, September 30.-No rain has fa...
