VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. NARRATIVE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 25 October 1841
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. NAttRATtIV.-On Wednesday evening last, the Rev. Mr. Waterhouse, super. intendent-general of the Wesleyan Missionary Church in Australasia and Polynesia, related a pleasing and in teresting narrative of his voyageing among the several missionary stations in the islands during the last eleven months. He first visited Sydney aild Paramatta, thence to New Zealand, where he was agreeably surprised at the progre.s made by the interesting natives of that island, and earnest appeals were made to him for more missionaries. In several of the Friendly and Sandwich Islands, the greater part of the inhabit ants have embraced christianity. In the Feejee islands, inhabited by the most inveterate cannibals, many of them have been quite changed by the force of religious anstruction: which, where it has had time to be in any way under stood, has produced a reverential awe and respect in the minds of the savages, both towards the subject and the in. structors.i this cuanot. but be n...
ARRIVAL OF SIR GEORGE GIPPS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 25 October 1841
ARRIVAL OF SIR GEORGE GIPPS. ON Saturday morning the long looked-for Sea-Horse, after a tem pestuous voyage from Sydney, en tered the Heads of Port Phallip, with His Excellency and suite on board. About nine o'clock the vessel ar rived .abreast of Gellhbrand's Point, where the usual salute was fired in fine style under the direction of Cap" tain Gordon, from a temporary battery of four guns. The firing was kept up for a considerable time with great spirit and rivalry by the numerous fleet of merchantmen in harbour. The Aphrasia steamer, on the first report of the cannon, left the Queen's Wharf at Melbourne and run down to Hobson's Bay, having on board several members of the Government, anxious to welcome the vice-regal visitor. Sir George appeared to be in excellent health and spirits. He has a dignified air, and even a stranger might recognise him by that peculiar care-worn expression of countenance which marks those who zealously devote themselves to the arduous duties of a respon...
THE CROSS TIMBER OF NORTHERN TEXAS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 25 October 1841
TBB CROSS TIMBER OF NORTHERN TEXAS. Prom ' Kennedy's Texas." Tnts Cross Timber of Northern Texas, whIch may be deemed one of the iiaturualcurloeitics of the country, forms a remarkable feature in its topography. The following description of it is foun. ded upon information furnished by respectable persons who have resided for several years in its vicinity, have visited nearly every portion of the adjoining district, and examined it throughout its whole extent. The Cross Timber is a continuous serious of forests extending from the woody region at the sources of the Trinity, in a direct line north, across the apparently interminable prairies of Northern Texas and the Ozark territory, to the southern bank of the Arkansas river. This belt of timber varies in width from five to fifty miles. tletween the Trinity and Red rivers, it is generally from five to nine miles wide; and is so remarkably straight and regular that it appears to be a work of art. When viewed from the adjoining prairie...

PRIVILEGES OF THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 1 November 1841
PRIVILEGES OF THE.PRESS. TUE Stewards, of thie Dinner given to flis Excellency. in Melbourne, have called down upon. their own heads the direst vengeance of the Press il general, for an iunpardonable slight in neglect ing to send an invitation' to the Editors of the respective Melbourne papers, and (the matter having been discussed before the dinner:took plare,) by carry ing their illiberality so far as to attempt to. smother the: usual toast- of *' Thr Press." The manner in which the editors have inflicted their vengeance is highly'characteristic, and displays the negative power of the press in a .very decided manner. .Ihey have refrained from giving any report of the proceed ings at the- dinner; so that the many speechifiers who blazed away on that occasion, might as well have kept their lights under.a bushel, - for notwith standing their brilliancy, the public are still in darkness. If it were possible to punish those Stewards who have been guilty of such conduct without also pun...

STATISTICS OF THE FORTIFICATION BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 1 November 1841
STATISTICS OF THE FORTIFICA TION BILL. From tile " Chavrivar." In order to terminate the intermina ble question of the fortifications, one of tile most eniment statibtical writers hsjdiiit made tihe following calcula tions : By cutting out from the Moniteur the speeches that were dilivered on that occasion, and by placing them one after the other, it will be seen that they would occupy a space of 70,000 metres, that is to say, twice the circum ference of the enccinte continue. M. Thiers's speeches alone would make the fronts of twenty-two bastions, and those of M. d'Argout might make eight detaches fer. The nasal orna ment of'the noble peer might occupy a half moon. Another calculation, which is not less ingenious: If, instead of employing printed pa per, the type which had served for the printing of the speeches had bees made use of, the following result would be obtained With the bourgeois, long-primer, nonpareil, small-pica, &c. used on the fortifications, it is is. possi...
