SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 March 1846
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. &nbsp; Captain Lipson has not found Rivoli Bay so well sheltered as Captain Under wood represented, but has ascertained that Guichen Bay is a splendid sheltered harbour, with six fathoms water within a stone cast of the shore. The Governor has been so pleased with the harbour, that he has made it the site of the capital of the County Grey, and the port of the southern district. He has also laid out a few acres at Rivoli Bay, and a regular township at Guichen Bay. We are glad to find, :also, that Lacepede Bay has turned out to be-as Mr Burr in 1844, and 'as our friend Mr Stirling had long stated it to be-a safe and excellent anchorage. It is about -twenty miles from Guichen Bay. and the two together make fine ports for the Mount Gambier Lake Hindmarsh, and Tatiarra countries, where there are certain to be in future years, plenty of produce to make them shipping ports of no ordinary magnitude. Captain Finnis, also, we are glad to say, has examined Franklin Har...

SYDNEY. TiH .W7TATIIE. -- TIRES. - The whole of tho hbsh at Wilberforce, Kurrajong, and South Creek, was on fire on Sunday last, and the heat in Windsor, from being surrounded by these places, was almost insull'orable. At Wilberforce throo hou.es were burnt down-one of tlien belonging to Mr J. Vickery. We never expe rienced the heat greater in Windsor than on Sunday and Monday. Hot winds were very prevalent, and they damaged the corn to an irrecoverible extent. On Monday night, an unex pected though gratif'ying change came over us in the weather.; the rain poured in torrents the whole of the night, and "did not cease until early this morning (Tuesday). The fields after the rain presented the most beautiful and gratifying appearance, and the grass-so green-was almost seen to shoot in vegetation. The benefit by this shower is infinite.
