GOVERNMENT CONTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 15 November 1841
GOVERNMENT CONTRACTS. UNDElt tlho present system of calling for tenders for the erection of pubilic bhnildiing~, &o., Melbourne enjoys a inmuber of privileges, and in many iinstainces ia complete monopoly of tlhe benellis arising from the dispensation of the Government patronage. A public buil!di?~, to beerected in Gee lcng, is advertised in the Melbourne papers; the plans and specifications are to be seen in Melbourne alone; the tenders are to be delivered in Mel bourne; tile whole of the business relating to the final contract must be settled there; and the consequence is, that MJelbourne builders are successful, -not because they can perform the workl better or cheaper, but because tile Government throw the job in their way, and give them a better oppor tunity of picking it up. Melbourne mechanics are brought down for a few weeks, their stores are brought from Melbourne, their wages paid by orders on.?Ielbourne, - while Geelong (for whose benefit the work was ostensibly u...
EGGS AND POULTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 15 November 1841
EGGS AND POULTRY. From Chambers's Edinburgh Journal. Among all nations, and throughout all grades of society, eggs have been a favorite food. But in all our cities, and particularly in winter, they are sold at such prices that few families can afford to use them at all, and even those who are, in easy circumstances consider them too expensive for com mon use. There is no need of this. Every family, or nearly every family, can with very little trouble have eggs in plenty throughout the whole year; and of all the animals domesticated for the use of man, the common dunghill fowl is capable of yielding the greatest bossible profit to the owner. In the month of November I put apart eleven hens and a cock, gave them a small chamber, in.a wood house, defendeil from storms, with an opening to the south. Their food, water, and lime, were placed on shelves convenient for them, with nests aid chalk nest-eggs in plenty. These hens -continued to lay eggs throughout the winter. From these eleven ...
THE FIXED PRICE SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 15 November 1841
TIIE FIXED PRICE SYSTEM. [NTELLICGrCCB has been received from England that it is in contemplation to re. cognise the former syitem of periodical sales of land, and that the system is to be extended to South Australia, the minimum price, however, to be a fixed scun, and all land vwhich doesniot sell at that price to be open for purchase afterwards. The proposition has issued from the Select Committee appointed to inquire into the affairs of South Austra lia; they having been thoroughly satis fled of the unsoundness of the principles upon which the Wakhteldlan system is founded.
EQUESTRIAN ADVENTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 15 November 1841
EQUESTRIAN ADVENTURE. Strange as my equipment was, with an undress jacket flying loosely open, and a bare head, away I went. The gate which the groom spoke of, was a strongly barred one of oak timber, nearly live feet high--its dillfficulty as a leap only consisted in the winding ap. p roach; and the fact that it opened upon a hard road beyond it. In a' second or two a kind of half fear came across me. Mly long illnels had un nerved me, and my limbs felt weak and yielding; but as 1 pressed into the can ter, that secret sympathy between the horse and his rider, shot suddenly through me, I pressed my spurs to his flanks and dashed him at it. Unaccus tomed to such treatment, the noble animal bounfled madly forward; with two tremendous plunges, he sprung wildly in the air, and shaking hii long mane with passion, stretched out at a gallop. My own blood boiled now as te npestuously as his: and with a shou: of reckless triumph; I rose him at the gate. Just at the instant two figures appear...
WATER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 15 November 1841
WATEl. A weir or dam is about to be con structed across tho Yarra, similar to the breakwater on the i3arwon; but it is too late in the season to commence the undertaking so as to prevent another sumnirer of disease and misery. There is also another characteristic of the Yarra water which will not not be so easily cerrected as its brackishness, and will even be increased by the crec, tionora dam; the wateris thick nsd slimy with decayed vegetable nmatter, so that when it stands long in a cask, it becomes streaked with a gelatinous substance, and is then unfit (or any purpose. Yurra water must-be filtered before it can be. come a healthful eltomett. The growing population of William's Town will be in a still more deplorable condition during the summer. It is a regular practice with the. inhabitants there to have recourse to the cart.ruts for. supplies. A proposal has been made to bring water from the Yarra, a distance of ten miles, in floating tanks. There is a gulley a few miles from...
HINTS ON HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 15 November 1841
BINTS OQ IHEALTH. le very careful to avoid excess of food as tihe principal source of dispep sia. Five or six hours should elapse between meals. Commerical and pro. fessionhl men should avoid long fasting. D)o not hurry from dinner to business, rest an hour afterwards. Never eat tlhings out of season, nor much of dishes to which you are unaccustomed Much liquid ta·ken at dinner delays the digestion. Avoid intemperance. Water is the most wholesome beverage. Excess of fermented liquors is highly injurious. Useful exertion is indispen sible to health and happiness. lMuscu lar exercise is conducive to longevity. The sedentary should walk whenever they have an opportunity. Never continue exercise after it has become painful. Standing at a high desk when fatigued with sitting, will be fonhd highly beneficial to literary men. The conistaut nuse of stuffed seats is injurious. Rooms in which the seden. tary are employed should be warmed by fires in open grates, which assist ventilation much;...
THE POST OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 15 November 1841
THE POST OFFICE. rlHE Herald states that it has received Sydney papers " down to the 30th nit. inclusive;" the Gazette states that " the overland mail left Sydney on the 30th nult., bringing papers of that date and the previous six days.;" aind the Patriot states that it has received a copy of " the first number of the Sydney Gazette under the new management." Now, either all three of the Melbourne papers are attempting. to impose upon the public by magnilying their sourcesof information, or some gross irregularity is permitted in the Sydney Post Omice; for hlthough the Sydney papers are re. gularly transmitted to us, yet we never receive any papers overland except those which are published on the day when the mail starts; the remainder, in accordance with the laws of tile Post Omfice, being transmitted by sea. All subscribers to the Sydney. papers are similarly circumstanced. It therefore beromes a problem how our Melbourne contemporaries, and they alone, receive their files-comple...
PARTIES AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 15 November 1841
PARTIES AT HOME. From the result of the Elections there is reason to beliive that thi Con servatives will havealarge majority in tile House of Commons--as they always have in tihe [louse of Lords, and that Sir R. Peel is now, or at all events will be premier, on the opening of Par liament. .We do not, however, see much cause for alarm, ifsnch should be the case, even as regards those who are opposed to the principles of the Right lhun. Baronet. The long.cona tinnance in ollice of either party, is seldom favourable to public rights; and it is always well to have both sides bidding for popular favour. Without questioning his sincerity, one can never forget the adroitness with which air Robert Taced right about on the Catholic Question, and it is an axiom, that what has occurred, may.:occur again, WVlo. could feel seurprised. at his making eves universal sulffroge a Cabinet Question, or at his getting his retainers to swallow that, as they didl tile Emancipation pill?

COLONIAL POLITICS. REPRESENTATION OR SEPARATION? [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 15 November 1841
COLOZA.rL POL'TZCS. IEPRESENTATION on SEPARATION? TIhat a legislative assembly, com posed of representatives from the various districts of New South Wales and Port Phillip, would tend to for. vard the interests of this province, Sappears to be a general impression on the public mind, and forms a_ portion of the standard creed of our newspaper contemporaries. The late visit of the Governor, and the expected grant of a respon sible council, have for the preseit entirely banished the idea of a sepa ration of this colony from New South Wales. A tub has been thrown to the whale; and the awkward animal feels not the harpoon by which it is madeprisoner, and destined to be haiuled alongside the ship, where the captors may ' cut-in' upon its oily treasures at their leisure. That Australia Felix is destined to a similar fate, should it: tamely submit to be fastened as an appanage to the state of New South Wales, is, we are afraid, but too probable. In the present council, we are, it is true, ...

ENGLISH AND MISCELLANEOUS. Zooiogy of Austratia.--The ordinary meeting for scientific business was held on Tuesday evezing, William Yarrell, Esq, Vice President in the chair. A paper Was read froii Mr. Gould, on that interesting species, the lyre bird of Australin, which was formerly supposed to be allied to the gallinaceous birds, but which was more properly allied to the ground thrushes of Sotuth America, This is the shyest of all birds, and although Mr. t&ould was surrounded by them, and heard their sharp piercing cries for days together, he found it impossible to come near them; and this diliculty was increased by their frequenting the alhiost intac cessible parts of the lakes and ravines. Thleir food is principally insects, but in some he found the remains of shelled snails in the gitzard, which is strong and muscular. The movements of the Christiatis o the Esst are being developed and or ganised in a manner very remarkable. According to the last accounts from Thessaly ...
