IRRIGATION IN VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 6 December 1841

I RIGATION IT VAN DIE,'MEN'S LAND.. S eruit thle Tasniatnian Journal of Science. 'Taeinani lhts peculiar ficilities for irrigation - ir some respects incal culably superior to those of I.dia. The most remsrklsble dillerence between the two countries, in reference to this sub. ject, is in the formation of their sur faces : while, in the peninsula of India, no single instance is known of a natu. ral reservoir of water from a pond to a lake, in Tasmania I have not heard of ani individunl river or criek which has not in the upper part of its course a proportionally extensive lake or lagoon. Hence, while in the formation of tanks in India the embannkments must generally be of great extent ; in the latter country there are innunoer able natural basins, wlhere, by a very short bank, a very large lody of water may be collected.

MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 13 December 1841

MISCELLANEA. Ericounter with a Boa Constrictor.. In the Surrey Zoological Gardens are several serpents, amongst which is an enormous boa, measuring upwards of twenty feet in length, an I weighing more than two cwt. It is usual for the keepers to bathe them ocasionally, and by every means to endeavour to tame them, and from time to time it is no uncommon thing for one of the men in the habit of so doing to go into their room, or cage, and clean it, whilst two large, constrictors, lie coiled up in a corner. Their food--live rabbits-is put in their rooms by a sliding pannel, whiclh one of the keepers named Black. burn was in the act of doing, when the enormous` boa sprung at him, and seized him by the arm. The mmn leaped backwards, drew the serpent partly out of the cage, wh:ch imrmedi. ately spun round him like a windlass, and made one coil. Had he effected another, Blackburn would have been inevitably killed, aznd perhaps partly swallowed before it was discovered, lie being at the ti...

REV. MR. HURST. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 13 December 1841

REYV;. MR. HURST. It is a painful task to have to allude to the delinquencies of any minister of the Gospel-it is painful to discover that men whom the world have been accustomed to look upon with respect; are not undeserving of reprehension, Yet these feelings must not prevent us from denouncing the Rev. Mr Hurst, for neglecting his duty as a missionary in talking against a whole community instead of acting against a few delin quents. He must plead guilty to one of the two charges-uttering unfounded slander-or gross neglect of his duties as a missionary. This individual---we will not disgrace his calling by treating him as a minister of the go6ipel--has, according to his' own statement, been surrounded by scenes of wholesale imurder and blood shed during the last two years. He has looked on carelessly, with a smile upon his .countenance, and done no thing to stem the torrent of iniquity. He keeps himself quiet until he goes to Exhibit himself at a meeting inanother colony, when, in...

ATLANTIC STEAMERS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 13 December 1841

A'TLANTIC STEIIAMCERS. I have crossed the. Atlantic in steam era several times, and most probably shall again, and believe sincerely, when of proper size, build, and power, with duae attention, they are, on the whole, the safest and best conveyance . ,: ., But I do not think generally- that care is observed with regard: to: lights. which the emergency demands; and in two of the 'principal boats~ have seen and heard of risks which never should have been incurred, and which kept alive a continued alarm in nervous and watchful passengers. It is far from my desire, to injure any steam-boat- or company ; it is for their interest, as well as the interest of the community, that the most syste matic care should be taken against that most awful calamity-fire in the midst of' the, ocean I speak with pleasure of the mode in which the numerous state rooms are lighted on board of the "Boston" and " Halifax" line; but in them, or in any other ship, no naked candle should ever be seen moveable.

THE MAGISTRACY AND THE SERVANTS ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 13 December 1841

THE 'MAGISTRACY AND THE SERVANTS ACTI. . AT the. Police Office, on Wednesday last, Captain Webster, J.P., appeared to answer the complaint of a man named Patrick Reardon, for an assault. At the commencement of the case, the de fendant enquired why the case was not brought on before two magistrates in the interior, instead of bringing him upwards of a hundred miles to Corio? The objection was overruled, on the general grounds that it was not at all times possible to get two magistrates to act, and that if a complainant makes out a prima faciam case before the Police Magistrate at Corio, he is bound to grant a summons, and to try the case. The examination was then proceeded with. It appeared that Reardon was hired as as a shepherd only, and he was en trusted with the care of a flock of about 800 sheep. He gave great dissatislac tion to -his master and overseer, dogging sheep needlessly, and by couraging the blacks to come about run. On one occasion he lost 200 she for three days, and ...

ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 13 December 1841

ENGLAND. .,-=--. WooL. -We have the pleasure to announce a letter from Messrs Eldridge and Marshall, of the 15th August, con taining the gratifying .intelligence that wool was on tile advance, with every prospect of its steady continuance. Ac count Sales of last year's wool were also received by the Calcutta which confirm that statement.-Murray's Review. Tie ensiness of money has continued unabated; and notwithstanding the depression of the foreign exchanges, no measure has yet been taken to contract the circulation. We shall not, however, be surprised at any moment to find money scarce; for the Bank of England, with a stock of bullion which is said to be far below the amount stated as suf ficient for preserving a secure position, is not prepared to meet the conse iquences of a large importation of wheat. Though w'e see no immediate danger from this cause, it behoves the mercan tile world not to launch out too deeply into undertakings where any contraction of the currency may lead t...

THE POUND. THE THREE-AND-SIXPENNY SWINDLE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 13 December 1841

THE POUND. TIlE TUREE-AND-SIXPENNY SWINDLE. Come, leaders, and let us have another hearty laugh' at the blundering inca pablcs who sway the destinies of Aus tralia Felix. Last week we mentioned that the Government intended to cheat us out of a paltry impounding advertise mnent, which ought, according to an Act of Council, to be published in Tils? journal alone. Such 'a tiny morsel iof` tiatronage was too muich for the Mel liourne Government to give.up without a stu'ggle.' Accordingly the advertise ment was, we havo reason to believe, sent to Melbourne"first, to the Super. in.tendent's office from:whence it would i1 de'course of business be, sent to the.

ACCIDENTS FROM FIRE-ARMIS. No less than three seriou's accidents from carelessness in the handling of fire.arms-have cme to our knowledge within the last few days. On .Thursday last, a sawyer named Simmons was carrying a loaded piece from North to South Corio; :on the way he stopped' to. converse :with one of the masons at wo!ak on the CoGrt House.
