LITERARY AND SCIENTIFIC INSTITUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 8 November 1841
LITERARY AND SCIENTIFIC INSTI TUTIONS. It would be-an insult to the under standings of our readers to offer any hackneyed observations on the ac knowledged advantages which spring from the establishment of institutions for the encouragement of the grow ing taste for literary and scientific pursuits which is now one of the leading characteristics of the present age. The question is not, Would suchv an institution be d?esirable ? buit, Is this township' sufficiently advanced to admit of an institution being established on a foundation of sufficient breadth to ensure its immediate success and practical efficiency ? We will not reply by argument, but shliall refer to what .h:lis actually been done `eisewhere, as an example of what might be ac co'inplished here. Bathurst is a small fourth-rate town :west of the Blue Mountains, A?nd about 120 miles from Sydney.

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 8 November 1841
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. Woot.-The prospect of finding a good market for 'the ensuing "clip" will. it as presumed. induce the greatest vigilance on the part of our.sheep own ers to send their wool home in the bert possible condition, so.as t"i maintain for it the high chatacter which it at prosen t enjoys amongst the manufacturers of this useful staple commodity. Serious attention to this advice becomes the more necessary. -as it now nearly the only.export upon which we can reckon with any d -gree of certainty, aod much competition may naturally be. expec;ed betwixt the 'aslisanliin and Australasian growers.-Cornwall Clirotiicle.

THE CRISIS AT HOME AND THE COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 8 November 1841
THiE CRISIS AT HOM~P AND THE COLONIES., Froni the Colonial Gasette. While the mother 'country is in a commotion, of course the interest of the Colonies must to some extent be in volved; but in the present political cri.i. they are very nearly concerned. Having no recognized representation of their own in the Legislature, their affairs receive a very partial or a very precarious attention, in the formal pro ceedings of ministers, or the uncertain movements of amateur representatives, who, from pecuniary interest in par ticular co'onies, or from interest which they take in particular views of co. Ionization, are content to do some of the work, though they have none of ihe responsibilty of agents directly ap 'pointed; In the numbers of these 'nmembers a general'electiotn may imake sad havoc;:.because the influences by which it- is governed have nothing whatever to do with their self assumed colonial functions. The next election will be governed entirely by an anti corn-law-or a pro-cor...
