LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 14 February 1842
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. INDENTED HEAD. —The beautiful &nbsp; country to the southward and eastward of Corio has hitherto been neglected on account of the apparent scarcity of pure fresh water. We are happy to hear that our enterprising townsman, Mr Mack, has endeavoured to overcome the difficulty, and the attempt has met with complete success. He caused a well to be sunk on his station about 12 miles from Corio ; at the depth of fifty feet the workmen came upon a stratum of rock, and the water then rose plenti- fully in the well. The supply is most abundant, and the water, very pure. There can be litttle doubt of the'prssi bility of procuring water . with equal. facilit.y.in the neighbourhood of. the; locality 'in question.

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 February 1842
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. The agricultural prospects of the colony are far from flattering. Land has fallen to the lowest ebb in value, while the release of the protecting duties in the Australian and other colonies, have thrown a gloom over the labor and expectations of the wine grower and exporter. At the same IItre, however, they are congratulating themselveq. on the daily increase in value.of the Cape wool in England; the care with which the fleece is man. aged while on the sheep's back, as well as the getting it up, has given it a decided position in the market, that, when we consider the 'cheapness of grazing ground in the colony, may yet enable it to compete with Australia.

WEST INDIES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 February 1842
WEST INDIES. By the latest news from the West Indies, we learn that money matters were better in Jamaica, and the crops were also better, both there and at Barbadoes, rain having fallen abun dantly, which had expedited the opera tions of the agriculturist. General Darling had assumed the government of the latter island. Trinidad was pros. perous, and the governor had been in structed to state to the home government that the island of Trinidad, from the great lertility of its soil, and with a sutlicient labouring population, was ' capable of producing sugar to any extent."
