THE TOWN HERD. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 22 November 1841

11lE TOWN 'HER1d. We hnve heanrd corn plnits troin every quarter during the 'puss week against the new set of regclations which have been put in force with respect to the grazing of cattle in the neighbourhood of the township. Indeed, the complaints appear to be so well.founded, and the abuses which have given rise to them to be so very unjust and unreasonable, that we are inclined to believe that some egregious misconception must exist somewhere. We must confess our ignorance of any act or. order in council which restricts thel number of cows to be kept by one individual to so small a number as four. If there be such a law, this !s the first time we ever heard of its being en forced, and it cannot too soon fall into disnetude again. The first consequence of these ridicu culous restrictions, has been the stop page of the most useful dairy in the township-one which was, in fact, a public benefit; and, its proprietor has been seriously injured by this.hitherto unheard.of relict of feu...

THE PRESENT CRISIS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 22 November 1841

THE PRESENT CRISIS. The following remarks on the presen commercial crisis, are from the pen the Rev. Dr Latig, and as, in our opinion they take a correct view of the mauci and coincide with our own ideas, a trnnsfer them to our columns, with t impression that they wvill bo equall acceptable to our readers. There is no subject that is so fr quently in every person's mouth a present as the badness of the time That the times are bad-in the cP[ mcrcial sense of the phrase - is an questionoable, if the testimony of po sons of all classes, each detailing il result or nis own uznappy expenert or his own general observation, is the least to be relied on. Nuy, tlihe such general depression in both work --we mean- the commercial world Sydney and. the world of settlers 0 of it-that one would almost be temptu to believe that the colony is on its 1l legs, and will never again recover i erect position (to use an Irish bull) the MicaMoiY of man. - Now, what.is the duty of the colon Press in such c...

SIR R. PEEL ON EMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 22 November 1841

SIR R. FEEBL ON E1IGRATION. There is a new spirit abroad with respect to Emigration-or rather to Colonization, on principles widely different from those on which Emi gration has been hitherto conducted Lrofessions are over-crowded - the profits of capital are reduced by com petition ; and hundreds are keenly considering, what are the comparative advantages of remaining at home, or seeking their fortunes in British pos. sessions; and are availing themselves of the opportunities of founding by industry and enterprize, the means of independence in lands (distant it is true) where British Laws and the British language daily renew the recollections of lHome. Why should you be debar red from these advantages ? and how can you better secure them than by ready access to authentic information, which the press is constantly supplying on many assential points connected with this subject? Such as the charge of conveyance out-the comparative fertility of the soil-the price of labour -the profits...

THE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 22 November 1841

THE COUNCIL., IT will be recollected that the Legisla tive, Council was adjourned till after the Christmas holidays. 'Such a sus. pension of public business, however, does not agree with His Excellency's temperament, and the members of Coiricil` have therefore been roused idor their dreams of Christmas delights, by a rude summons to attend;to their senatorial duties on the 30th of No. vember. It is said that the constant dra'ti upon the immigration fund has raised a serious alarm as to itssutlicienry to meet all expected demands; and that the Governor intends to submit to them some plan for getting over the difficulty. This is only a rumour, and we hope the real cause of the sudden summons is, the receipt.of the dispatches, so long expected, containing the definitive in structions from the . Home Government with respect to the institution of Muni cipal Councils in the various towns in the colony. ANOTHER LAND SALE. THE Sydney Gazette states that " The Governor has promised that 100,...

SUPREME COURT. BREACH OF PROMISE OF MARRIAGE. (From the Melbourne papers) GORMAN V. O'NEIL - This was an ac- tion to recover the sume of £300, for damages sustained by the plaintiff for a breach of promise of marriage. Mr Barry for the palintiff stated the facts of the case, and then brought the fol- lowing witnesses - Bridget Britain - I know Bridget Gor- man, she was living wtih her sister, Mrs Morgan, in March last. I knew the de- fendant, he visited Morgan's, I was pre- sent on different occasions when he came to the house; I asked the defend- ant if he intended to marry the plaintiff; he said he did intend to marry her in a week or eight days. That was in April last, preparations were made, and I was requested by the plaintiff to act as bridesmaid. They were asked in Church on the 20th or 23rd of April; they were to be married on the following morning by the Rev. Father Georghegan. The bride and myself dressed for the ceremony; the wedding was to be kept at Morgan's, but on the...

STEAM NAVIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 29 November 1841

STEAM NAVIGATION. From the London Journal of Commerce, The vision of Columbns is about to be realized. Arrangements are in pro gress to connect WVest Indian steam navigation with a direct and continu' ous communication across the Pacific Ocean. A regular line of packets is likely io be established within a few months between the western coast of America and New Zealand, which will, doubtless, be quickly extended to the Australian colonies, to India, and to China. The West Indian Steam Navigation Company have a contract with Governiment to carry the mnails to the West Indies, and their steam ships are in such a state of:forwardness, that the first steam packet for the West Indies is expected to leave this country in September. This company, in the best spirit of British enterprise, have expressed their willingness to complete the line between Jamaica and Puerto Bello, on the Atlantic coast of the Isth mus of Panama-a distance of 501) mile, or three day's journey by steam.

METHOD OF PACKING WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 29 November 1841

METHOD OF PACKING WOOL. :romn the Sydney Herald. In the present time, when the scarcity of money is such that settlers and mer. chants are both trying their utmost to scrape together a'hundred pounds,.a few suggestions whereby the country could obtain £50,000 clear profit, or an advance of two pence per pound on the next clip, would not be out of place; and I am certain, that should the following advice be adopted by the woolgrowers as a body, the account sales ofour colonial produce would give a balance of more than that sum in our favour. Colonial wool in England has become an object of much interest, and there are many more manufacturers who would use it, but at the present will have nothing to do with it, on ac count of the very careless manner in which it is got up. The profits, there. fore, that the dealer-and part of thait of the stapler-gets at home would be saved to this country if attention were only paid to the washing, shearing, classing and packing. In all ca.es the was...

ABUSES IN T'I-H CONTRACT SYSTEM.

THE PRESENT CRISIS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 29 November 1841

Ti?E PRESENT CRISIS. (Porm the Australasian Chronicle) It.id beyond question that this colony is now: undergoing a coinmrrciul revo lhitiori, in which the fall, if not the rise, of runny; anrd the prospects of all, are infallibly invoived. The eclrnil distress of the mercantile, pastoral; and agricul tural portions of the corriminity is greater than hlias been witnessed at'any former period of our history, and the return. of health and prosperity seems both distant and doulitfull. If we try our position by the axiomri of political :econoimy--if wve strike thre lialance'be tween our exports anidl imports--the odds are sorely against us ;'and, if we rmay believe the united voices of tliose engaged in the prudtiction of our sallile commodities, our ex?orts are more likely to decline thran' to advance in proportion o our i~ants. In this state of things it is in vain to hope by any scheme of finaincial legei demain (like the preposterous loan proposed lately by some of our mar chants) to...

For this purpose weliad to cross two arms of the bay in a cano, of the natives, which was just large enough to hold us both and two young men to row it. These canoes consist of one piece or sheet of bark, each end of which is gathered up into a bundle, a stick forced through it to form it into the shape of a .bow. The edges of the sheet are strengthened with strong pieces of split cane, which are fastened on witli small cords of cane wound over them and carried through small holes of the bark; two or three tie4 are fastened across these edges at different places, lest the sides should bend so low as to let t...

We will.not enter into the merits:of: the case, as that would .be only blowing the hot'embers, and we might get a few sparks in our owni eyes for our pains.
