No Title [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 7 June 1845
From the press of English intelligence and other matter, we are compelled to allow several articles, intended for this number, to lay over for insertion in our double sheet of Wednesday next. The valuable communication of our corres- pondent A.R.X. will no doubt be &nbsp; read with more interest and profit than any remarks we could offer of our own. The Squatters have been much mis- represented, and the most effectual means of disabusing the public mind, will be by their proclaiming their in- dividual opinions in the manner in which A.R.X. has done. They have &nbsp; been accused of indulging in unjust and grasping desires, and of possessing a monopolising spirit. The denial of these charges, and the disavowal of such inclinations, will come better from THEMSELVES than from a mere spectator of passing events.
THE EXTRAORDINARY PROROGATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 7 June 1845
THE EXTRAORDINARY PROROGA- TIONS. (From the Sydney Herald.) For what reasons of state the Executive have deemed it proper to defer the assem- bling of the Legislative Council to so un- usually late a period of the year, we do not pretend to know, beyond what may be gathered from conjecture or from general rumour. But a little reflection has led us to apprehend that very serious inconve- nience, both to honorable members and to the public, is likely to be the consequence. The session of last year comprised three periods: from the 5th to the 8th cf March, 4 days; from the 28th of May to the 11h of October, 69 days; and from the 27th of No- vember to the 30th of December, 22 days—in all, 95 days; or, at the average of four sitting days per week, say 24 weeks. The question is, is it probable that the business of the ensuing session will be equally heavy? Considering the very many &nbsp; references made last year to Her Majesty's &nbsp; Government, by the Legislative Coun...
NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 7 June 1845
NEW ZEALAND. News from New Zealand, both from Auckland and Cook's Straits, have come to hand. At the Bay of Islands there had been some fighting; to what extent no au- thentic information had been received at Auckland, and rumour had most probably exaggerated what had taken place. Pomare, one of the most mis- chievous chiefs, had been captured, and was on board H.M.S. Hazard. The Legislative Council closed its session on the 22nd April. WELLINGTON.—All is quiet. There are 150 soldiers in town at the Stockade and at the Hutt, with about 200 volun- teers, who, by constant drilling, have become tolerably efficient. Great con-. fidence is placed in Captain Russel, a very energetic man, and is it every way suited for the service in that colony. "The Militia Bill had not come into operation, the Governor not having yet issued his proclamation, agreeably to one of the provisions of the Bill calling out all persons liable to serve. He ex- pressed himself hostile to it, and he possesses the ...
MELBOURNE. SHOOTING BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 7 June 1845
MELBOURNE. SHOOTING BLACKS.—Agreeably to the &nbsp; general anticipation, the late strictures by the public journals upon the ineffi- ciency of the Protectorate, have aroused certain members of that body to be up and doing to get up a fantastic "raw &nbsp; head and bloody bones" treat for the old ladies at Exeter Hall. It appears that about eight months since, some natives fell in an affray with certain members of the Border Police, whom they encountered in the neighbourhood of the Wimera. Evidence, we must presume, has been in course of culture since that period, and his now arrived at that full growth necessary for the object of the Protectorate, who will take good care that no symptoms of "mental capacity" shall impede the &nbsp; courre of the law, when the supposed delinquents (Sergeant Applin and two of the privates of the Border Police, for whose arrest warrants have been issued) are placed upon their trial, which it is expected will take place at the n...
THE "GREATBRITAIN." STEAM SHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 7 June 1845
THE "GREAT BRITAIN." STEAM SHIP. —On the 9th of January the Great Britain &nbsp; made a trial trip down the Channel, having about 110 viitors oni board. No ladies were on board, but among the gentlemen were— Mr George Rennie, Mr I. K. Brunel, Mr &nbsp; Samuda, patentee of the atmospheric rail- way; Mr T. B. Smith, patentee of the Archi- &nbsp; midean screw propeller; Mr B. Woodcroft, &nbsp; patentee of a screw propeller. &c. The Great Britain now presents a very different appearance to that which site did when she left the docks, her six masts, which are cal- led the foremast, mainmast, and third, fourth fifth, and sixth masts, having been stepped, &nbsp; and temporary shrouds attached ; the yards of the mainmast are also across. The vast size of the ship will perhaps be better exem- plified to the nautical render by stating that were she rigged with three masts, her fore- mast would be upwards of 60 feet from her bows, and her mizen u...
LAUNCESTON. MILITARY OUTRAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 7 June 1845
LAUNCESTON, MILTARY OUTRAGE.—On Tuesday evening the peace of this little town of Launceston was interrupted in a manner never before witnessed, by the out- rageous conduct of some soldiers of the &nbsp; 96th regiment stationed here. So many reports have been circulated as to the extent of mischief done and persons hurt, that we were inclined to believe them greatly exaggerated, until upon strict enquiry into the particulars of the outrage we find much greater cruelty has been committed and more property destroyed than what has even been re- ported. The subjoined details may be depended on:—About half past six o'clock in the evening of the day named a body of soldiers, upwards of forty in number, and all of them armed with some offensive weapon, rushed into the house of Mr Childs, the Black Swan, exclaiming "let's clear this ——— &nbsp; house first," when they commenced at- tacking every person within reach with the most brutal ferocity; the bar- man was the first they...
ORIGINAL POETRY. TO A FRIEND ON HIS MARRIAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 7 June 1845
ORIGINAL POETRY TO A FRIEND ON HIS MARRIAGE. Guard ! oh, guard her as treasure, She has given her heart to thee, And her love's unbounded measure Shall through life thy solace be. It was no slight thing to sever, From the home of early youth, And to trust her love for ever To thy constancy and truth. If the gift be worth thy keeping, She will never mourn the day; &nbsp; She will ne'er with fret or pining Grieve she gave herself away. And 'tis thine the flower to cherish, &nbsp; Her whose germ of life's with thee; &nbsp; For with cold neglect will perish, What would else a blessing be. It is willed by heaven in season, That the tempter shall come near; &nbsp; And the test of truth and reason, Is when dangers most appear. In that hour thy breast assailing. Should forbidden passions thrill, Be thy love for her prevailing, &nbsp; And thou shall be happy still. F.H.

SMUT IN WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 11 June 1845
SMUT IN WHEAT. At a late meeting of the Cullompton Farmers' Club, Mr Forster made the following, remarks on the subject: In reference to the * smut In wheat,' it is well known the farina, or flower of the grain, is converted into boot-like powder, and that the destruotion of the husk generally follows, which serves to show the malignancy of the disease. This powder, when thrown on water, and examined by a powerful magnify ing glass, is found to consist of myriads of globules filled out with fluid; and when we reflect that each small speck is capable of producing a perfect fungus, we may cease to wonder at the exten sive rages which are sometimes produced by this disease. It has been considered that the soil is mainly instrumental in generating this noxious fungus: where the former is rank and very luxuriant, a forced or unnatural growth of the plant has taken place, and instead of a healthy stalk, it has come up with a tendency to disease, which, under favourable cir cumstances for ...
HOW TO GET FORWARD IN SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 11 June 1845
HOw TO GET PORWARD IN SOCIETY. --I know (says he) the ins and outs of life from the palace to the log-hut. And I'll tell you now what I call general rules for society. First, it aint one mnan in a hundred knows any subject thorough, and, if he does, it aint one time in a thousand he has an opportunity or knows how to avail it. Secondly, a smatterin' is better nor deeper knowledge for society, for one is small talk, and the other Is lecturin'. Thirdly, pretendin' to know, is hall the time as good as knowin', if pre tend:n' is done by a man of the world cutely. Fourthly, if any criter aies you if you have been here or there; or know this one or that one, or seen thii iight of t'other sight, always say yes; if you can without lyin', and then turn right short round to him and say. "' What's your opinion on it? [.should like to hear your views, for they are always so original." That sa?es you makin'a fool of yourself by talkin' nonsense, for one thing, and when a room aiut overly well fu...

HUGHES & RONALDS' ANNUAL REVIEW OF THE LIVERPOOL WOOL MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 11 June 1845
HUGHES & RONALDS' ANNUAL RE. VIEW OF THE LIVbRPOOL WOOL MARKET. It is again our'pleasing duty to give a favourable report of the Wool Trade for the past year. The extension of our com, inerce with the East, which has b'en during the year mote fully developed. an increased colonial demand, with a ful. ly averaged general export trade, have all contributed to give a tone of coufi dence and steadiness to business; but more than all, the recurrence of another abundant harvest has accomplished this, by cheap food and afllemploymcnt to the operative masses.. We have, conse quently, to notice in the home trade a vigour of enlargement to which it has for a loig period been a stranger. One cause of this satisfactory state of trade may be traced to the very moderate price of the raw materials, principally used in the woollen manufacture, such as cotton, (which is extensively used for mixed tabrlcs,) oils, indigo, &c. A most impor tant amelioration has been effected by the enli...
