MONEY MARKET AND CITY INTELLIGENCE. November 1. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 February 1846

MONEY MARKET AND CITY INTELLI GENCE. November 1. Thie value of money has not increased in the discount market this week; but a better demand exists among the mer chants, who are transacting a larger busi ness for export. The rates are still lheld at 2. to 35 per cent., and the fear of a scarcity of cash in thie general mercantile world induces the bill brokers to keep their operations within circumscribed limits. The East India Company, it is said, have increased their rate of advance, on the plea that the movement made by the Bank Directors is indicative of further restriction upon the money power of tlhe country. Our latest advices from Ham burgh, Rotterdam, and Antwerp speak of the continuance of the demand for money, and of thle state of thle public stocks in consequence. A goodl deal of thle conversation amongst commercial and monetary cir cles to-day has reference to thle measure which Government will be induced to adopt witls respect to corn.

By this time Mr M'Eachen found out the sort of " friends" he had to deal with, and made an attempt to free himself from the grasp of the vil lains who held him, and partially suc ceeded by tripping up one, but in the attempt to serve the second in a similar manner both came to ...

TAXING POWERS OF COLONIAL GOVERNMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 February 1846

TAXING PO\WERS OP COLONIAL GOVEIlNM AINTS. (From the Hobart Town Observer.) Lord Stanley's Circular to the Co lonial Governors, intended to quiet their scruples and to discourage re sistance to local taxation, is tho most singular docunfent issued for many years. It will revive a topic which has slumbqred long, and produce in every interested colony a warm dis cussion. The eminent counsel who has. declared against the taxing powers assumed by the vicoregal functionaries opens anew the whole question of legal government. That an opinion expressed by a private subject should command the serious interposition of a minister may be ascribed to an extreme tenderness of conscience, or to the weight of evi deuce and authority by which that opinion is sustained. Those who have thought with Mr Burge will not be satisfied by the lawyers of the crown. If, say they, no power to tax is expressed, that power is essential to good government, and therefore is~ implied, as if this might not be revers...

THE SONG OF STEAM. [From an American Paper.] HARNESS me down wtth your iron bands; Be sure of your cusb and rein, For I scorn the power of your puny hands As the tempest scorns a chain. How laugh'd as I lay conceal'd from sight, For many u countless hour, At the childish boast of human might, And the pride of human power. When' I saw an army upon the land, A navy upon thle seas, Creeping: along, a snail like band, .Or waiting the wayward breeze. When I mark'd the peasant faintly reel With the toil which he daily bore, As he feebly turn'd at the tardy wheel, iOr tugg'd at the weary oar. When I measur'd the panting courser's speed, The flight of the carrier dove. As they bore the law a'king decreed, - Or the lines of impatient love.. - I could not but thinuk how the world would feel, As these were outstripp'd alar, When I should be bound to the rushing keel, Or chaiu'd to the flying car. Ila ha I ha ! they found me at last; They invited me forth at length ; And I rush'd to my throne w...

THE CHRISTENING OF PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 February 1846

~1THE CHRISTENING OF PORT PHILLIP. ý.INow that Port Phillip is about to be ushered into the world as an indepen arnt colony, it is but fitting that the child sAould have a name ; but as there is some dispute as to the paternity-one party claiming the distinction 'of " Father of Separation," and another asserting that the child isa bantling of his own-unless some compromise be arrived at, the young colony must get on as it best can under whatever nickname people please to bestow upon it. That such a compro mise will be effected, is, however, very probable, as Dr Lang has consented to forego his right to tile title of Father, and so far to give up his presbyterian scruples as to stand the part of Sponsor on occa sion of the christening. This intention he has notified in the following letter to the Editor of the Courier : " In the prospect of this province being erected into a separate and in dependent Colony, I think it would not be out of place to consider whether its present name Po...

THE "TIMES," AND THE SQUATING QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 February 1846

N o. 54,7. THE " TIMES," AND THE SQUAT TING QUESTION. The taking-up of the Squatting Ques tion by " The Times" is one of the "'great facts" of the day; and, when viewed in connexion with .the animated proceedings, in England and Scotland, of the friends of this colony, and the favorable alteration in the tone' of the Imperial Parliament whenever Colonial questions arise, we feel justified in in dulging in the anticipation, that the despotism of the Colonial Office in Downing street will inifuture -be effec tually counteracted, if notialtogether. aun nihilated. The Times appears to have' formed a very correct estimate of the character. of Sir George Gipps, of the purity of his motives, his ability, as a statesman,. and the scope and justice of his measures. In these particulars we entirely coincide in opinion with the writer in the Times. We have uniformly looked upon Sir George as a man whose views of ex pediency led him continually to the verge of dishonesty, and the only good qual...

SOUl H AUSTRALIA. Our latest intelligence from Adelaide has been received via Sydney, to the 7th February. The mines still engross public attention ; and it is evident that the South Australians are as deeply infected with the Mining, as England is with the Railway mania. Another sale of Mineral lands had taken place, the result of which is detailed as follows : " We have much satisfaction in pub lishing below a statement of the result of the auction of Crown Land at the Trea sury on Saturday last. For the mineral sections the conmpetition was extremely brisk ; no less than thilee or four separate parties having bid.

Sir Everard Home also held a conference with Heki, at Pahia, who stated that " it was useless to contend with the British, as they could kill a fly at two miles." 'The hostile natives had evidently been very mnich distressed for provisions, although they endeavoured to keep up the best appearance.
