THE BUOYS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 2 January 1841
T?as B3uovs.-.Ve are at a loss to ;magine what our Hartour Master is about. It is with' great surprise that we hear that tne buoys, about the plactig of which so much has been .said, are not yet laid down. It was supposed that Captain lewis had been engaged at them for some time, and when' we hear thiat 'nothing has been as yet done, we are tempted to think either that Captain L's duties are too arduous to be attended to by him alone, or that they, are of too light a nature to be of slufficient eon sequence to cause him to bestir himself during this hot weather.-~--Gazette.

THE DESPATCHES — THE NEW REGULATIONS — AND THE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 2 January 1841
THE DESPATCHES - THE NEW REGULATIONS- AND THE COUNCIL. Independent of every other con sideration, there is a hold and a manly frankness about all Lord John Russell's measures, which is comrpletely in con trast with the petty skulking, higgling disposition of his colonial represen tative. Sir George otight to have kept a stall inMonmouth street or Rosemary lane, while Lord John goes upon the moire respectable maxt'in.of "first price asked, and.no abatement." SVith regard to the tendency of the new " aid Regolat ions, opinion is rmuch' divided. Theie csari be nio doubt but that nmany will -uatn.in heavy, losses from them. Still the amount of such will be so small compared to the almost universal benefit conferred, that, after mature deliberation, we meutsyield our cordial approhation to the new system. The most serious argument adduced during the dehate in C uncil, was, that the system of depasturing on crown lands would be put an end to I his, we are convinced, is a mere bug hear. Th...

CORIO. The deplo.able ignorance of even well educated and influential (individ nals in Eriglan(l, regarding the situa tions and .comparative eligibility of the various..antipodean colonies, is quite.notorions.

MY LORD--The sapient govern inent-appointed soi-disant-liberal members,. and government officer said to have large possessions. in New South Wales, (if we may credit the plublic papers), have not only joined in Billingsgate terms of vituperation against Your Lordship, but are also using every method, plausible or non-plausible, that they can imagine, to torture the Order in Council 'of May last, so as to make it appear a measureof insane policy; and although Sir George Gipps did in part reprove them, and pointed out some of the fallacies they ad vanced yet the manner of this reproof was tantamount to encouragement.

MASTERS AND SERVANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 9 January 1841
MASTERS AND SERVANTS. The peace of this district is con tinually disturbed by quarrels and hesrtiurnings between these two classes of society, more so than in any other part of the colony. T'his in some measure arises from there being a greater demand for all classes of labourers, which makes them so very , saucy and inde pendent." But a still more pow erful cause exists in the awkward. ness and unworkableness of the laws, and the conflicting interpie. tation which are given to them by the different authorities, and often by the same authortty at different times. This renders tlheir qnarrels a kind of lottery, both parties stand a pretty equal chance of snccess by referring their case to the Magis trrte. The new servants' act, renders it almost impossible for any wages to be paid, or engagement completed .without a reference- to the bench ; it was this week deci. ded that no wages can be stopped for damage causad by wilful neg lect, unless the offender be brought to trial, as the ac...
