UNPARALLELED EFFRONTERY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 29 November 1841

NOVEL PROPOSITION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 29 November 1841
NOVEL PROPOSITION. The insulting conduct of the loine Government-in throwing- aside our claims for a legislative assembly, as ai mere matter of convenience to them selves, and in re-enacting that most odious of laws, the New South Wales Act-ought to have called down the wrath of the colonists in a more signal manner than it has yet done. The Observer, in an article headed 'C Our Rights, and we will have them," recommends the colonists of New South Wales, Port Phillip, and. Van Diemen's Land to proceed at once to the electioni of representatives, who should meet at some central point, such as Melbourne, and there form themselves into a con gress, for the purpose of agitating the question of representation, and for drawing up petitions and remonstrances against the method pursued by the Hlome Government in the administration of our local affairs, and withholdinig Irom us the right of having a voice inl their management and in the disbursement of the contents of our own treasury chest....

GOVERNMENT ._LAND SALE.

TO OUR MELBOURNE SUBSCRIE?Lt[S. We have just received notice that our last 'week's papers have not been received in Melbourne. \We cannot yet tell where the blame lies; we can only state that they were duly forwarded through the post-oflice, and we have been asEured that they were dispatched with last Monday's mail. We shall en. duavour to discover the cause of such ir regularity, and, should it occur again, we must, in justice to our readers and ourselves, try some eflectual means for enlorcing better atteuntion wherever the miscarriage occurs.
EXTRAORDINARY INCREASE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 29 November 1841
EKTRAOILRDINARY INCEAS'E.-We be lieve that the following inslance of fecundity in sheep, which occurred at Coyehenup near, the Pyrenees, has never yet been paralleled. Two ewes, both belonging to one flock, had four lambs each in the .present month, and the saime two ewes had twins in March last-thus making twelve lambs in one year, all of them alive and thriving well.

We will of course be in attendance, to see whether he will. adjudicate in ;his own cause--or if he will plead ignorantce of the law-we are also curious to know whether he will be fined in the highest or lowest penalty-or.whether the afflir will be hushed up, and passed over in silence...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 29 November 1841
SYDNEY The accounts from the Quarantine station are anything but favorable. There are no less than sixty cases of small-pox, at present, on board the New York Packet, besides a number of cases of various other diseases, which are not contagious; only two cases of typhus fever have broke out on board the Ayrshire, since she has been sent to quarantine, those that were formerly on the list are fast recovering, so that there is a probability of her being re- lieved from the quarantine ground in about a week. MONITARY.-Several of the new, ar- &nbsp; rivals, it is said, have brought out a considerable amount of capital to this BANKRUPT colony. These HORRID BAD TIMES are "excellent times to invest it to advantage;" although all that has been invested hitherto has failed in PRODUCING-anything bankruptcy. According to some folks, capital brought to Australia is like water spilt upon the ground, it cannot be gathered up again. -Observer PORT ESSINGTON.-Letters from Port Essington, da...
THE BLACKS—COMMITTAL—MR HURST. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 29 November 1841
THE BLACKS'-COMMITTAL--MR &nbsp; &nbsp; HURST. &nbsp; The outrages by the Blacks are in creasing at a fearful ratio. There is scarcely a settler but has suffered from their ravages. Formerly they used to single out a station and drive off the sheep in large flocks; they are now less bold, but more crafty ; and while they have extended their depredations to almost every station, they are not so easily discovered and repelled. They have also been making greater destruc tion among the cattle,. and especially the calves, than formerly. In some instances they display great cunning in burning the remains of their feasts; &nbsp; while at other times they will leave a number of carcases of cattle scattered about with only a small portion of the flesh cut off. We are sorry to have to record the fact that one of our most respected settlers was so far exasperated by one of these black marauders, who threat ened to spear him after having speared his cattle, that ...

THE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH.—The Colonial Committee of the General As- sembly of the Church of Scotland, have appointed three additional clergymen for the province of Australia Felix, who are daily expected to arrive in the over- due ship from Greenock. The Rev. Mr La?rie, one of the number is appointed &nbsp; to proceed to Portland Bay, the Rev. Mr Gu??, who preaches both in English and Gaelic, is intended for the Pastoral charge of a second Presbyterian congre- gation in Melbourne. The third, (whose name has escaped our recollection) comes as Missionary to the blacks, the ex- pense of the mission being defrayed by a beneveloent lady in Edinburgh. — Patriot. BOTANICAL GARDEN. Sir George Gipps, having approved of the establish- ment of a public domain, for the pur- poses of rearing and cultivating indige- nous and exotic plants, having any peculiar or rare properties, it has been determined by the local Government to set apart "Batman's Hill" and the sur- rounding land down to t...
