VISIT OF MR. LA TROBE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 17 January 1842
VISIT OF MR. LA TROBE. His Honor the Superintendent arrived in town yesterday forenoon. The principal object of his visit, we believe, is to inspect the site for the lighthouse, but we hope that he will take a general review of our local affairs, and give.a fresh impulse to the spirit of improvement which is apt to retrograde 'wvhen intrusted to the care of an.iinferior 'officer; whose actions are devoid of him or energy. There are many .ways in which the interference of his Honor might prove of immense'. benefit .to the township at present; and as he has alwhvays left behind him some meinorial of his beifiial influenca on former visits, we have reason to hopethat he will continue to, deserve the thanks of the inhabitants of Corio, by' that attention to their interests which the growing importance of the district requires, and which, when cheerfully accorded, becomes a merit of considerable magnitude in the donor. We might easily follow the 'ex. ample of our.Melbourie contempo rarie...

MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 17 January 1842
MISCELLANEA. The Kentish Gazette asserts that Sir Thomas Troubridge is to be appointed Governor of South Auqtralia. - VeNTILArTION OF VESSELS CONVEY sNo LIVE STOCK. -We ohbserve from a provincial journal, the. Port of Tyne P'ilot, that our townsman, Mr It. Cald. well, has been engaged in devising a simple, but apparently eflicacious method of ventillating sailing vessels employed in tile - conveyance of live stock. The design is to draw off the foul air by means of a syphon, and maly be described as an iron flue with three apertures running fore and aft the ship's hold near the deck. The one end of the flne passes into the smoke funnel, going throngh the fire of a small stove or caboose in the steerage, which rari fies and draws off the foul air from the hold, passing it up the vent. Two or more inlets for the supply of fresh air introduced through the deck by small pipes reaching to the centre of the hold. The expense of this portable apparatus is estimated at £15 or £'20, and may ...
NEW ZEALAND. NELSON SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 17 January 1842
NEW ZEALAND. NELSON SETTLEMENT. Despatches were received on Moniday last, by the New Zealand Company's principal agent, from the Nelson Settle. menat, from which we have been allowed to gather the following information. SCaptain Wakefield, after an examin ation of the shores of Blind Bay, from the Astrolabe Roads to Croixilles Har hour, had decided on placing the settlement at Wakatu, which he has named Nelson Haven. This harbour lies in the south-east angle of Blind Bay, or, as. it has been more appropri ately calletLTasman's Gulf.. It is not laid down in any of the charts, and was not before known to Europeans. The natives from the opposite side bf'tlie Gulf occasionially visited it for 'the pur" pose of fishing hut were unwilling to give any information. respecting it, which might draw off attention from their own place, Motucka, where they had pri parcd hous&s for-expected set tiers. Nelson Haven cannot bhe called a bar harbour, there are flats to pass over before enteri...
LORD JOHN RUSSEL'S DISPATCHES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 17 January 1842
LORD JOHN RUSSEL'S DISPATCHES. From the Sydney Gazette. Ou Tuesday last, His Excellency laid upon the table of the Council Clhamliar three very important despatches from the late colonial minister, Lord John Russell. The first of these documenlts has reference to the Municipal Bill antd Road Bill, both of which measures our readers may recollect. were rejected last year by the Council. Ils Excellency, however, is again ordered to lay them before the Council at the earliest opportunity. Whether Sir George will do so, or wait for further instructions from the Colonial Office, we know not; at all events whenever the measures arw re-produced, we trust that no individual comparisons and distinctions will he ran. either within, or without .the d"icil Chamber ; for the inflimmable Pin1riel' of which our community is ,r|ed. only requires, as we have but l-ften seen. a breath to fatn it into a ahte. The sooner therefore, that all a-u?ss of disunion and recrimination are pjkvetl the better--....
From the Observer. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 17 January 1842
From the Observer. A rumour prevailed the other day ithat Sir George had received notice to quit. It turns out, however, to have been in correct. One:.of our. contemporaries advises His Excellency to rest fnilly secure, of the.. usual tenure of olffice. Another gentleman, however, with pe culiar claims to acharacter.for " mode ration," vents . the most violent tirade against his Excellency's administration, which he has hitherto been accustomed to laud " usque ad nauseam." In fact, he assures us Sir George is.slumbering above a reservoir of gas-whether car buretted hydrogen, orthe escaped fumes of the distilleries, deponent saith not which he, the controller of those tindery elements, requires only to, touch with the fire of his wrath to 'reiider the colony too hot for him. Aniiother tells us he has received from a private source the announcement of the certainty that the Tories will pass a New South .Wales Bill. granting us a constitutional Legis. lative Assembly like the othir col...
MIDDLE DISTRICT. LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL, JANUARY 3. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 17 January 1842
SMIDDLE DISTRICT. LTGSh ATIve CouncIL, JANUARY 3. The Governor said, that upon looking over the lRegistry Bill, he perceived that there was a certain portion of it that required alteration ; but as he only intended to strike out certain clauses, withnut introducing anything new int.o the bill, what he proposed might he done d(luring that day. lie had found that the Judges could not do..Without a Registrar ot the Supreme Court, and were he therefore toappointa Registrar for the Colony, he should only be cre. ating a new office, which he certainly did not contemplate doing. Besides which, there were certain deeds, which by- a regulation made under the sign manual of. Her Majesty, were ordered to be registered in the Supreme Court. These were the deeds of grant, and it would be very inconvenienit if the deeds of grant were. tq ie registered in one office, whilst other deeds affecting the same land were to be registered in an. other. He therefore proposed.tostrike out all the clauses af...
MR. FENWICK AND MR. CARRINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 17 January 1842
MR. FENWICK AND MR. CARR1ING TON. On Thursday last a farce was enacted at the police office which was well worthy of a verbatim report; but in order to make it intelligible to our readers, we must throw it into a narra. tive form. About six months ago a man named Charles Samburne wai fined in the penalty of five pounds for assaulting a constable named Ryan. The assault was committed on Samburne's own pre mises, where he considered the con= stable to be a trespasser. The party who was fined, gave the case into the bands of Mr Carrington, who came down to Corio a fortnight ago in order to in stitute proceedings against the con stable, when he applied to Mr Fenwick for a summons against Ryan, which after some little demur was granted, and Thursday the 13th instant appointed for the hearing of the case. On the day appointed Mr"Carrington was in attendance. ._The magistrates on the bench were Captain Fyans, Lieut. Addis, and Mr Fenwick. Mr Carrington moved that the case should be gone in...
IMPORTANT TO SQUATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 17 January 1842
IMPORTANT TO SQUATTERS. Accompanying the above is an other dispatch which, were it not for its absurdity and extravagance, we miight view with some degree of alarm. Instead of increasing the taxes on the growth of wool, the wiser plan would be to abrogate those which have already been im posed. Wei have a better opinion of Sir George than to suppose that he will pay!the slightest attention to such instructions as the following : Downing-street, June 20, 1S41. Sttu,--My attention has been drawn to the very small amount of revenue derived in New South Wales from the licenses to depasture sheep and cattle, and the head money on the stock de. .pastured on the crown lands of the colony as compared with the value of the land thus allotted to individuals. I should wish you to consider the subject in order to ascertain whether, as I believe, the price both of such licenses and of the ;head money may not be considerably raised. It is dif ficult for me at this distance to fix the amount to wh...
CROWN WITNESSES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 17 January 1842
CROWN WITNESSES.-A moSt unfair system of withholding the payment of the expenses of crowi,' :itnesses and prosecutors, is practised at the Supreme Court, by keeping them in attendance long after the eases in which they are concerned have been decided. This is particularly hard upon witnesses fromi Geelong, w ho gtnerally prefer abandon ing their claim altogether, to dancing attendance at court for an uncertain perioid. The veixation and pecuoniary lose to which prosecutors are thus sub jected is a serious stumbling block in the path of justice, and must lead to the compounding of felonies and other practices subversive of good order. The fact only requires to be made known to Judge Willis to secure its immediate remedy. WooL Sijis.-No less than -three. ships sailed for London with' cargoes ot wool duting the past we,.k. Two utf these (the two first of the season) took in every bale of their cargoes,at Gee, long. This is no small matter of boast. COMCMIVTAL:-A manl named Cousins was ...

The sen- tence will be carried out at the new jail on Thursday next.

Rebi[?]. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 17 January 1842
THE GELONG ALMANAC for 1842, Calculated for the meridian of Corio, and containing a variety of information useful to the Settler, the Merchant, and the Tradesman. &nbsp; " On all-important time, in every age Tho' much and well the wise have writ, the man Is still unborn who duly weighs an hour." The truism contained in the above quotation invests " Almanacs" with a degree of dignity and importance which ought to make them even more accept- able than they usually are. Indeed all the sublime flights of Dr Young on the value of time, dwindle into insig- nificance when compared with the shrewd remark of a 'canny Scotsman' who declared that "an Aberdeen Al- manac was the best book in creation (haudin' off the Bible.)" If this be be true, then Almanacs should be criti- cised with a minuteness and severity which would give but little chance of a favorable notice for the work now under review. But the little Almanac before us is so moderate in its pretensions, that criti- cism is at...
