SCOTCH FARMING. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 March 1846
SucoTCuK FARMING.- -Stctch farmers: nanago- to pay four times as much or an acre of the same land as an English farmer, at his almost nominal rent, becomes bankrupt upon. How a this ? It is that the one cultivates lis land to tio utmost, while most of ho lands in England are in a state lisgraceful to those who occupy them, as they are to the landloirds who allow hem to be so mismanaged. We may ie told that the difference we observe s occasioned by the different practico If the two countr.cs in the matter of granting leases, With good far nors this might operato; but among he pauper spendthrifts who call them= elves farmers in many counties of England, we find land that is held under a lease to be no better culti vatbd than that which is occupied only from year to year. Scarcely one farmer in fifty in England has capital enough to cultivate the laud he rents, nuch less to indemnify his landlord or any breach he might make ih the covenants of his lease. Leases granted to such persons ...

SMELBOUR1NE. IHYDROPATaT. -Yesterday, Hyder Ali, an importation from the Mysore country, and who by the bye ought to be sent back again with the least possible despatch, was placed belore his Worship tlhe Mayor, charged with having treated the cold water cure with sovereign con tempt. It appeared by the evidence of Mrs Frances, Brown, of Swanston-street, that the previous day observing prisoner lying on the steps in front of her house, she requested him to remove, when he became exceedingly insolent and abusive.. and refused to go away. Having heard of the remarkable cures performed by the Swiss adoption of cold water applicants, M rs B. thought she would try its efficacy upon Hyder, thinking, as she innocently remarked, that it would do him no harm. No sooner had a couple of quarts been applied secundem artem, than the effect proved more extraordinary than was an ticipated, for Hyder speedily sprang upon his legs, and demolished a window, and was therefore given into custody.

ARAB BREAD BAKING. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 March 1846
AnIt BREAD BAKING.-Tho Arabs adhere to thoso principles of bread baking which have beea sanctioned by the experience of ages. The very first baker of bread that ever lived must have done his work exactly as the Arab does at the present day. He takes some meal and holds it out in the hollow of his hands, whilst his comrade pours over it a few drops of water. He then mashes up the moistened flour into a paste, which he pulls' into small "pieces, aid; thrusts into the embers. His way "of'hbaking exactly resembles the"craft'or mystery of roasting chesnuts as p4itised by.chil dren* there is the sameoprudenceand circubispectiom in choosing a oid Bierth for the morsel, the same enterprise and self.sacrificing valor in pulling it out with the fingers.

THE REFORMATION IN GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 March 1846
THE REFORMATIONINGERMANY. OUR accounts relative to the progress of the new reformation in Germany, and to-the procepdiigs'of its glorious leaders, do not dimiinish in interest. The Pastor Czersky has been pro hibited fromnt preaching at Posen, in consdquence'of the exertions of the Roman Catholic Archbishobp. The interdiction does not, howvei'er, extend to the towns of that province. 'The bold pastor .hais presented a written protest against what he considers an illegal act of authority, declaring that he considered it an affair of conscience to afford 'spiritual succour to his fol lowers.. The inhabitants of Posen, whose worship has been' interfered with, attend divine service at Sclihwcr seur, at which pilace the interdiction does not seem to apply. A letter from. Breslau says-" The attack made on the inn in which Ronge lias:passed the night at Tarno witz was such that in a single room twenty-four large stones were" found. The disorder commenced with cries of " Long live Frederick...
PORTLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 March 1846
PORTLAND. THE JETTY.-The new wharf, for he few (lays last past, has been a pleasing scene of mercantile bustler hipping and landing having been going on with a'safety, ease and com ort,, to .which Portland'has' lhereto ore been a pferfect strainger. Instead if sailors waddling up to their middle n water from morning till night, and goods 'sulfering damage from *boats upsetting or the surf in breaking ovei lhem, goods are now landed exemp: from those evils. The wharf, too, by :oncentrating the business of shipping and landing in one place gives Port and an air of commercial importance we had thought it hardly entitled to until thiis change took place. The work, so far as it has proceeded, ap pears substantial, and during the late heavy gales when the surf broke a considerablo distance from the shore its violence did not affect, in the least, the stability of any part. '-Wi 3ould not observe the smallest vibra lion, on standing at the outer, and most exposed part of the jetty wher som...
A TRUE-BLUE REVIVER FOR A FADED NAVY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 March 1846
A TRUE-BLUE REVIVER FOR. A FADED NAVY. Once upon a time the jolly sailor sang a song addressed to "You gentlemen of Englarid, who sit at home at ease;" tel ling them how little did they think upon " the dangers of the seas." A sailor of a later generation, who ventured on shore, discovered that the land also had its perils, though the intrepid Cockney so habitually disregards them as to be un aware of their existence; and the mari ner hastened back to the sea, telling his comrades how the house-tiles, fly about in the storm on shore, how people are run over, and so forth. Now-a-days, the dang ers seem altogether transformed to the land. Your ship is an asylum into which superatmnnuated Admirals retire for a fortnight's physicking, as to a sana tarium. On the other hand, a field of glory opens to railway travellers, who meet death at every station-house, seek ing the houbble reputation even in tihe boiler's mouth. In these piping times of peace, the crash of battle is imitated in the...
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 March 1846
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. .DESPERATE SUICIDi -On Monday last, at Russ, District Flynn, an old hand in the police and well known in this city, committed suicide by placing a pistol in his mouth shotted to the very muzzle, the charge of which shattered his, head to pieces. The deadly weapon itself wras so overcharged that the barrel, in the ex plosion burst into fifty pieces. The cause of this rash act, so far as we have been able to ascertain, is as follows: Two women, about a fortnight ago, were brought to the Ross police station in charge. One of these women was per mitted to go to the rear of the police office; and there while in communication with a gentleman with whom she was permitted to cbnverse, robbed him (as was alleged) of a considerable sum of monav. The charge of robbery was made, but Elynn did not report it at the time. Tlhe. ircumstance, however, came to the knowledge of the magistrates, and a searching investialion was instituted. The result was that, on adjourned hear ing o...

REVIEW. Geography for the use of Australian Youth, by JAMES BONWICK, Hobart Town. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 March 1846
REVIEW. GeCgraphly for the use of Australian Youth, by JAMES BONWIcX, Hobart Town. Tnims is the work of a talented and ener g tic schoolmaster in Hobart Town,; an .admirer of M. Fellenberg, one of the enthusiasts so needful to overcon.e the difficuhlties attendant upon education; and it is no small praise to say that M'l B3onwick partakes of his spirit. The wotic is well executed. A Geography radapted to this hemisphet e has long been needed. It is evident that a philosophic teacher at the antipodes must start at a very different point from European in structors, and take an antipodal circuit. 'Thls is ecleverly accomplished. Mr Bonwick begins at Hobart 'Town, and after giving the most important particu lar with regard to Tasmania, crosses Bass's Straits, and lays before his pupils several interesting details of the Geo graphy of Australia Felix, New South WVales, North Australia, Western Aus tralia, South Australia, New Zealand, Norfolk Island, and the Australasian Is lands.

MR. LANG'S PAMPHLET ON LAND AND LABOUR. -When this" book first aplpeared we promised to review it at some length; but the task is one which requires msuch labor and research, and a close and exclusive attention, which we have not yet been able to bestow upon it. The work is extremely clever, and yet exceedingly abst'ruse,' and therefore should nbt be ligJtly dis posed of. We are glad to hear that tho pamphlet has met with general approval wherever it has been circu lated. -The following testimony to its merits isfrom the Sydney Herald: Under the title of "Land and Labor in Australia; their past, present, and fu ture Connexion and Management con sidered, in a Letter, addressed to. the lion Francis.Scott, M.P. for Roxburgh, and Parliamentary Agent for New South WVales," a bulky pamphlet has recently issued from the Melbourne press, avow edly written by Mir Gideon S.

EXPRESS FROM PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 March 1846
EXPRESS FROM PARIS. The Paris papers and corresponncoe of Thursday, received by our ordinary express, contain little political hews. It was still .reported that %larshal,Soult would retire altogether fromn public af fairs, and that M. Guizot. naturally looked to succeed rhim as head of the government. The'papers and letters tend to allay, in some degree, alarm for the late har vest. France is stated to be quite safe and the state of other continental coun tries is represented as less uiisahisfactory than had been supposed. 'l'he. continued fall 'in the Lohdon Stock Market on Tuesday caused another depression of prices on the Paris Bourse on Tuesday.;
