PREDECESSORS OF THE HUMAN RACE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 7 January 1846
-PREDECESSORS-OF THE 'HUMAN RACg. An-article in a late number of the North British Review has appeared,; ascribed to Dr Pye Smith. It brings before us some striking facts and solemn reasoning on the various creations which philosophers suppose to have preceded the formation of man. The docter refers to the memoir read by Cuvier, 1795, at the first sitting of the National Institute, " On the species of fossil elephants, compared with the living species," in which he demon strates that the fossil elephant differs from all living species, now lost, He &nbsp; undertook to prove the like with respect to other animals. " May we ask," said he, why we find so many remains of unknown animals, whilst we can find none which we can rank among the species we know ?-We may see how probable it is that they have all. belonged to the beings of a world anterior to ours-to beings destroyed by revolutions of the earth, and to beings which have been replaced by existing species.'; Surrounded by ...

MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 10 January 1846
?d1ELIOURNE. GoVERNMENT EcoNoMY.--IL will, we dare say, be recollected that a sum of £400 was voted by the Legislative C.outcil during the late session for procuring a buoyl-heat for the harbour of Port Phitlip. Some lhort timesince tenders were called (or for the building of a boat for this service, according to terms and dimensions specified, and tenders were accordingly sent in, but the lowest of the ntimher happening to exceed the limit by £20, none of them were accepted, and the expenditure of the money transferred to Sydney, where it was hoped ship-builders might be. found who would come within the prescribed limits. Of course, £'20 twice told will not cover the expenise of bringing the boat from Sydney when built, to say nothing of the risk of loss by the way, but the.laudable spirit of economy, which abstracted the ex pendituret of so much of the provincial revenue to effect such magnificent savina is surely be yond all praise.
