Fo the Editor of the Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate. SinR.-Iaving mentioned in the paper hlich I handed to you of having found he Native Silkworm in the bark of the ?um tree, I examined the trees of the orest knore closely to day, and found 'hem in considerable, numbers inder the bark of the she-oak and honeysuckle, it was in Fuch parts of the trees as had been wounded ahtl the bark grown over, leaving a hollow space between the tree and the bark. This.appears to be the month when tht worm retires for the season, as I found one in- its cone or nest. It is evident that the worm leaves the mouth of the cone openi for it is in such a state of transformation that it is impossible to shut it. Any person wishing- to examine the habits of the worm, this motth will be the proper time, as Isaw several other spe cies in the same state. They will re quire to handle them in a gentle man, ner in taking them from the tree and depositing them in the box. In the ' Historical and Descrip...

MORE EXILES. The ship Stratheden, which was originally chartered by the home government to carry Pentonville exiles direct to Port Phillip, and which was announced accordingly in Hardy's Shipping List, has had her destination changed to Hobart Town, where she arrived on the 30th of December last, having only a small number (fifty-eight) of the exiles for this province. Letters have been received by Mr Addis, and by the Secretary of the Geelong Immigration Society, informing them that the &nbsp; above-mentioned fifty-eight exiles will be forwarded without delay to Geelong direct. It was Dr Hampden's [sic] original intention to have visited &nbsp; Geelong by this opportunity, &nbsp; in order to collect information re- specting the conduct of the indi- viduals forming the first importation by the Sir George Seymour, but from the long-protracted voyage of the Stratheden, and his having taken his passage in the Calcutta, which was to sail from Hobart Town on the 1...

MASTERS AND SERVANTS ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 21 January 1846
MASTERS AND SERVANTS Acv.-We cannot pretend to give a full report of every case under this act, brought be fore the Bench; but we propose to give in a condensed form, a series of all sush cases as involve any difficult point, any new reading of the act, or which may be useful as preeedents. James John Kennedy, Thomas An. rews, William Jones, and John Brown, yere charged by Captain Barclay. f the Duke of Richmond, with having eft their employment as weekly la bourers in stowing wool on board the said ship, and refusing to return to their work. Several others of the la bourers on board had been stummoned, but they having returned on board the plaintiff declined pressing the charge against them.

DOG LICENSES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 21 January 1846
DOG LICENSES.-The polico have shown considerable activity of late in ferretting out cases of non-com pliance with the requirements of the law respecting the keeping of dogs. In many instances we know of the police having given a friendly cau tion to parties keeping unregistered dlogs; whilst, in other cases, we have heard complaints of trickery being had recourse to, to induce parties to admit quasi-ownership. We do not know which of the police force holds the appointment of " curtailer ;" but whoever he may bey we would sug gest that it is not quite according to the rules of decency, to carry his victims to a private jetty, there to butcher them like pigs, and throw them into the bay at a place where the public eye is disgusted with the sight of the mutilated carcases. We would recommend the magistracy to make enquiries respecting such mat ters before certifying to the con stables claim for tail-money.

The at tendance was very small, but inclu ded.many leading colonists. It was certainly the most respectable mee ting as regards the wealth and station of those present, which we remem ber in the colony. On the motion of Mr Fisher, the chair was taken by the Hon. Major O'Halloran, M.L.C. The Hon. John Morphett;, M.LC., said that under ordinary circumstan ces the meeting would have been convened, and presided over by the Sheriff; but that officer had thought proper to decline calling it, and to decline presiding. The reason for the Sheriff's declining he could not surmise, but he thought it must be either from unreasonable timidity, or undue ...

Tliat imprisonmen vwith reformatory means, in this countryt, hsuould be instituted., That after these means have been exhausted, the criminals should be transported, not to one place only, but to various colonies. After liaving acted on their fears,. or rather on their consciences, yoe slh6uld act on their hopes, and induce them to rise from their moral fall. By the present system the majority in Van Diemten's Land is on the side of crime • the majority should be on thie side of virlne, otherwise public opinion will incline the wrong way.

TnHE NEW BILL. There can be little doubt but that in' a few weeks, the British Parliament (ortlhe. smniall minority which attend on such :occasiiis) will be busied in deciding(ftlhe fate of this portion of tiie empire, so far as it may be affectfedbliy the alter Arionh of tlihe squatting regulations, witiout any opportunity :being afforded the parties most interested in. he subjebt :making the'6iselves heard. :It may be urged .that,this ,difficulty arises from our geo. graphical position, and not from any desire of the home government to treat us with indifference ; but the logical conclusion to be drawn from this argument, is, tlhat '.since the colony cannot be removed nearer the, seat of legislation, the seat oflcegis-. lation should be removed to the;colony. As this however 'is not likely to be the case, we must,'be content with animadverting upon the mea sure proposed for adoption, with out the slightest prospect of these remarks having any influence in moulding its parts to a p...
