THE WHARF GANG. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 2 January 1841
THE WHIIARF GANG. MR. EDITOR-Your replies to my last set of questions, altlo:tgh not quite explicit, are :yet highly interesting. I am therefore desirous of drawing out your views and knowledge of facts a little further, by a few more q.estions on subjects about which I am not a little perplexed. Will you then be so kind as to inform.nue whether the wood and water which is left at private dwellings, is so left by the orders or consent of the " powers that be?" [In our humble opinion, if the private residences be those of the Government -otlicers themselves, there can be no un. certainty about the matter.] Are the said loads of wood or water employbd for any government pur pose, or in any way for the good of the public ? [We hbelieve that 66 Cut Bovo" can answer his own questions -better than we can , and next week we expect Ito hear a stiaightforward statement ol facts. instead of his sitn.eicant hints. we. shall not however promise to publish Ihe'.] Is it usual for a gang of prison...

A friend complained to Foote that a slanderer had ruined his` character. " So much the better," replied ithe wit " for it was a woeful bad on'-. and the sooner destroyed the better." An old man, whose son had did lately, was visited by a neighbour. who began to condole with him on hi., loss. " .'ly loss!" exclaimed the father; " no such thing-it's his own loss- he was of age." The town cleik in a certain town, as the custom is, having published the bands of. marriage between two per sons, was very aptly Iollowed by the clergyman reading the hymn corumen. c?ng--".

Mlessrs. Marsh and Edinborough's '' Circular" relates not only to the sales in June alone, but the causes given for the depression, shew it to be, only of temporary relation, the wools sold being besides of inferior quality; and yet the demand for lambs' wool was so great that they fetched very high prices.

PORT NATAL. By the Mlia.eppa, which arrived on Saturday evening, we have received from Natal up to the 22nd June, and we feel unbounded satisfaction in having it in our power to say, that the affairs of the Emigrants are in every respect proceeding mnost pros perously. The report of Dingaan's having fallen by the sword of the people of capoesa is confirmed, anid Nonklaas the chief captain of the pres ent Zoolm King attended the last Volks meeting in order to renew a treaty of alliance. Thus have the emigrants overcome their most formid able enemy and succeeded in estab lishirig peace upon what is likely to prove a lasting basis. All the other Kaflir tribes also evince the greatest respect for the farmers, and say that government acts towards thenm like a father.
