REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 1 November 1841
REPRIESENTATIVE GOVERNMENT. From the Sydney Gazette. We lately announced that this in suited and neglected colony had again been mdcked, by the renewal for another year of that farce of a measure " l-luskisson's Act of 1828;" and that the long-tolked of bill,. to give us, the colonists of New South VWales, those free.and liberal institutions which are our birth-right, had been thrown into tilhe lumber garret of the Downing street officials. - low long are we to be thIus de frauded . of our privileges as free citizens? - how long are we to be subjected to such harsh and iniquitous treatment, and have all that a Briton values most, held in abeyance at the caprice of a colonial minister. Notwithstanding that our claims to free institutions have been fully ad mitted, we find- the British Parliament year after year, session after session, unjustly refrain from bringing forward one single measure of the slightest tendency to emancipate us from our present mockery of a government, or to ad...

SUBMARINE NAVIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 8 November 1841
SUBMARINi NAVIGATION, .The treatise of Mersenne on subma. rine navigation is part of a very curi. ous twork, treating on. almost every thing... lie speaks of ships that may ba made of either metal or wood, to rrun with wheels on the bottom of the sea. and whlere the sea was too deep, to be moved w.ith oars. He dwells ona the safety from the wrst :of storms idi such vessels, because, as he says, their forcee never reaches a greater depth than 'three or four fathoms: ihe says: such a ship should be in the foinrmof a fia, but alike at botli eilds; that the .oars should be broad like paddles; and easily turned, so as to make the ship go backwards or forwards, upwards or downwards. He thinks persons might reinaiil a month at the bottom of the sea in such'a vessel; that they? might grind corn witll millamnoved by lasses, bake bread. cook their victuals,: anld carry on trade and manufactures. A little '-further on he.says it would. be even possible to colonize the bed of the seaenough to l...

THE DAIRY. Butter. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 8 November 1841
TUIBle DAIRY.: From= the Launceston Advertiser. Butter.-Althoughl the butter trade in: this Colony :is not so extensive as ait is in- the niother country ; yet. with proper care and management will prove very profitable totlhe' farmer. "It lhas. been Icomputed.;. that ?'50,000 tons of bliutter are. annually consumed in Lon 'doi, .50,;000 firkins of which are sent }yearly from O'ambridge and Suffulk Thlie most esteemed 'is'that made in the: rnrin?iry of'Essex,( well 'known by thei nameofEpping butter, which generally sells at a higher `price than any other. A few general observations concern ing the making and management of butter may be useful to the settlers. It is obvious that the greater the quantity, of butter made from a few cows, the greater will be the farmer's profit, therefore never keep any for dairy purposes, but those esteemed good. milkers. A 'bad cow is as ex pensive in her.keep and attendance as a good one,/ although the diffLrence of profit will be more than fifty pe...
