THE FOURTH DAY OF THE RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 14 March 1846
TI-E FOURlTHI DAY OF THE R1ACc S. Wednesday last was thle day appointed for the match between Quicksilver and Petrel, the Hunter's Ilandlicap Sweep. stakes, and the Ladies' Offering. Quicksilver not imaking his appear ance, Petrel walked over the course. A treaty for the purchase of the favorite, for £200, by Messrs T. Barradaile and IH. N. Simpson has been talked of, but the purchase has not yet been completed. No less than eight horses started for the Ladies' Offering. This was alto gether a private race, those only being privileged to start, who had the good fortune of being presented with cards hy the ladies who subscribed the Offering, the value or description of which was, we may remark, a profound secret until the race was run ; one satirical lady, it has been whispered, presented no less than a real dulhdeen, or short black pipe. Be that as is may, the race was a first rate one, the whiole eigi.t being well up in the rails at the finish. MIr Buchanan, on Mr Dewing's " Blazes...

IMPOUNDING FROM CROWN LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 14 March 1846
IMPOUNDING FROM CROWN LANDS. [? our last Saturday's number we pub lished a correspondent's letter, contain ing the query :-" Is it legal to impound cattle and horses found trespassing on Crown Lands occupied under a license from the Government?" After an at tentive consideration of the subject, and reference to the various Acts bearing upon the question, we have no hesita tion in replying that licensed occupiers of Crown Lands have NO' the p)ower to inmpound stock trespassing on their runs. Toe Impounding Act is altogether silent on the subject of any distinction as to the tenure of lands (rom which stock may be impounded; and if the whole law of the matter were contained in that Act, ll: occupiers of land would enjoy equal privileges; but the Border Police Act declares that the provisions of the I:npounding Act shall be extended to Crown Lands beyond the limits of loca tin,,, only'in so far as specified by the raid Border Police Actl i;ind althoutgh the linitations are by no means ...

LAND SALE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 14 March 1846
LAND SALE. A government sale of Geelong Town and Suburban Allotments was held on Wednesday last, when prices were oh ta.ned altogether unprecedented in the history of provincial townships. One of the town allotmeals ,No. I) was knocked down at a price equal to £'881 per acre; whioe the suburban lands fetched as hih as £21 per acre. The quantity of shburban land sold was 244 acres, wvhich i.rodu ed £2473, being an ave rage of upwards of "£Il per acre. On the same day were sold 359 acres of Mlelbnurne Suburbans, which realised .£1285, or about £3 12s per acre. We have been informed that anything but harmony prevailed at the, auction, and that certain' parties actually went so Iar as to assert that a conspiracy was formed to raise the price of the land. Nut knowing what giounds exist for such a -charge, we can ulofr no opinio r on the matter; except that it appears to us abi;ost iaczedible -that business nien should run the risk of run ning up an article beyond its value.

ENGLISHI EXTRACTS. TILE STATUES FOR THE NEW HOUSES OF PARLInTIesT.-lThe Comrmiissioners on tile fine arts have been groping aboot the new Houses of Parliaiieont to find places to put statues in. Unfortfilatelil, the niches are too little to adomit great men, a!.d twenty-four inches is: the ex tremie width of a comfortable niche, so that the Comnmissioners have been obliged to go through the " H Istory-of Enflatid" with a two loot rule in ordelr to find characters that can be brought within lhe prescribed limits. The discontented Barons are all to be cut down, and even the Sovereigns are obliged to submit to a general clipping.

The samenesssof their attitude is said to fit them for their narrow places; and it is true they were sturdy fellows, who, having once taken up a position, were determined ...

POLICE COURT. Mr P. Mason was fined 20s. and costs, for neglecting to light his lamp on Saturday evening last. The dul- cet sounds of the Teetotalers' Band had so completely entranced the senses of the boy who generally acts as lamplighter, that he totally forgot his duty. Mark Hutchins was arraigned for using insulting language to Constable Dargan and pushing him on the street, but the defendant having two -wit- nesses who contradicted the consta- ble's evidence in toto, the case was dismissed. James Filen, charged with assault- ing District Constable Carman, and who had been remanded till the latter was able to give his evidence, was again brought up. Carman deposed that on Wednesday, he was called from the grand stand to Pries's booth, where he found the prisoner ex- tremely outragous; succeeded in paci- fying him, and with assistance laid him in the corner of a back apartment, and was leaving the room, when Fi- len got up suddenly, rushed towards Carman with the fury of a madman...
