MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 27 December 1845
M ELBOURNE. PROGRoSS OF CRIM?--DRUNKFENNESs. -We regret to observe, that the watchhonse lists fur sotm time past have swelled con -siderably with the number of drunkards we hope thiis 'tate of things will not continue as our town for some time past has been more orderly in respect to sobriety, than any town with the same number of inhabitants in thie United Kingdom. Drays and wheel barrows are now in constant requisition to convey men, in suelc a beastly state to the watchlho.use. Yesterday his Worship the Mlayor said, it was a great mnisf'ormtune to see-so much druttkeness in the place, and we echo the observation, and recommend these misguided men to go to the Teetolal Society and there take the pledge and be. coeue reputable rmemnbers of our Social circles.--Gazette.

This schooner brought de spatches to the Mexican Consul at 'ew Orleans, after which lie refused all clearances to American ships, and closed his ofice on the following day.
