LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. CONTINUED OUTRAGES BY THE BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 February 1842

1OCAb ? N TELIZGEQNCE. CONTINUED OUTRAGES BY THE BLACKS. Since tbe date of our last intelligence from the neighbourhood of Mount Rouse and Mount Napier, we have re ceived accounts of several atrocious outrages committed by the aborigines in ihat quarter; and although a detach ment of the Border Police has been stationed there for some time past, it is feared that no effectual stop will he put to their ravages,. until tile settlers be stirred up by their repeated wrongs to make a fearful example among the barbarians. It is therefore a duty in. cumbent upon the government to pre vent the consequences of such a ren counter, by a timely and effectual inter position of aid for the protection of the settlers. Amongst their other outrages, the blacks killed a shepherd in the em ploy of Mr Ritchie, by spearing him. The most characteristic instance of their combined dishonesty, brutality, and savage grossness, that we have yet heard, is the fact that. they killed five horses (the property of...

THE JUDGE AND THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 February 1842

THE JUDGE AND THE PRESS. ':There have been several " scenes' enacted ipn the Supreme Court of late, which have drawn the attention of hil classes to the conduct of the actors therein. We shall endeavor to take an impartial view of the bearings of the, case, and make o'ur remarks accordingly, the more es pecially as our Melbourne contem poraries appear to have but one idea on, the subject. The manner of Judge Willis has afforded a constant theme of ani madversion to the conductors.of the Melbourne press. They have sel dom, however, attempted to find fault with him for any of his aels; nay, they have frequently been re luctantly compelled to bear witness to-his many estimable qualities. Mlr Arden, the editor of the Gazette, has on two occasions, ineautiously exceeded the limits of moderation in his remarks, and has thereby called down the vengeance of an exasperated judge upon his head. He was accordingly on Wednesday last brought before Judge Willie, who seiitenced him to twelve mout...

MIDDLE DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 February 1842

MIDDLE DISTRICT. We understand that the 16th of this month has been fixed on, for holding a public Meeting, with the view of pe titioning parliament, for a Legislative Assembly. It is to be hoped that the speakers on that occasion will establish the right of the Colony to that untde niable blessing, with temper and ability. Those who take charge of the business of the.Meeting, will no doubt see the necessity of considering all the differ ent interests concerned, instead, of being led away by any predilection in favour of the pastoral, agricultural, or commercial portion of the community. In all cases of appeal, more especially to a distant tribunal, there is nothing so weakening to the effect of the whole as an apparent division of opinion with respect to minute details, and a restless exhibition or jealousy towards rival interests. Strength lies in unity. -Sydney Gazette. Theatricols.- Great changes have taken place amongst the Thespians of Sydney since the opening of Dalle Case's ...

RELEASE OF M'LEOD. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 February 1842

RELEASE OF M'LEOD. 'After nearly twelve months' of anxious suspense, during which the most imminent danger of a war between England and the United States existed, the matter of dispute has been brought to a satisfactory conclusion. The trial of Alexander M'Leod for murder and piracy, was brought to a termination on the 14th October, by the Jury unani aously agreeing to a verdict of NOT GUILTY. The administration of justice in the United States, appears (so far as we can-take this trial as a specimen) to be as impartially con ducted, as in any other country. We do not'expect, however, that the friendly relations between the two countries are likely to continue on a sure f(oting, for Jonathon appears to be bent upon picking a quarrel. He has got as much self. conceit as a Chinaman, and may re quire to have it knocked out of him by the same process as that now employed against the celestials.

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 February 1842

NEW ZEALAND. (From the Sydney Gazette.) We have received the Auckland Gazette to the 15th of January. The legislative council were busy with the Municipal Corporation Bill, and other matters of public importance. On the application for a grant from govern ment, of frontage, to erest wharfs, docks, &c , the Governor remarked that he had received strict orders from the home government, not to give land away ; but seeing it would be necessary to make certain grants, he had written homs on the subject." We are re joiced to hear of the prosperity of our sister colony; we congratulate them on their privileges in obtaining a legisla. tive council to watch over the interest of the state, and municipal corporations to improve the towns of Auckland and Wellington. But when we consider the importance of our own colony, the number of our inhabitants, and the various interests which ought to be consulted in a Legislative Assembly when we consider that our town (Syd ney) contains upwards ...

OUR LOCAL MAGISTRATES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 February 1842

OUR LOCAL MAGISTRATES. We are prevented from following up our remarks on the trial of Well bank for assault, by the abrupt manner in the examination of the witnesses was concluded, through the illness of one of the jurors. Gross perjury was evidently com mitted by one party or the other ; but it would be both improper and dangerous for us to express any opinion to the prejudice of either. In this respect we cannot go beyond the words of Judge Willis himself: There is perjury here. Send for the registrar to. take down the evidence of these parties - there is clearly perjury here. One of the jurors becoming in. disposed; counsel consented to the with. drawal of a juror, which the judge said was tantamount to an acquittal. His Honor said until ctiminated the con stables must be allowed their expenses. I am bound to consider them innocent until convicted - it's only oath against oath, There's gross perjury somewhere. Surely the matter will not be al lowed to remain in this doubtful stat...

SUPREME COURT—(GEELONG CASES.) Corrected from the Melbourne papers. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 February 1842

SUPREME COURT-(GEELONO CASES.) Currected from the Melbourne papers. Jorhn Davis was-indicted. for stealing a mare value t50, the property of Mr. Austin, at Geelong, on the 10th of February. The prisoner pleaded not guilty. The circumstances of this case were of the most paltry nature, and reflected little credit upon the magis trates at Geelong.. There was not the shadow of a charge against the prisoner, he was defended by Mr Barry. Edward Brown was indicted for steal ing one boiler, one frying.pan, and one tin basin, the property of William Smith, at Geelong, on the 21st of December. The prisoner pleaded not guilty. This case evidently showed that very great attention is not paid at Geelong as to the manner in which cases are there got up. This prisoner was also acquitted he was defended by the Hon. Mr Mur ray. John Cousins, alias Wellbank, waq indicted for stealing a large quant'i y of wearing apparel and one pistol, thepro perty of Arthur M'Mapn, at Geelong, on the 10th day of De...

COUNTRY MAGISTRATES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GEELONG ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 February 1842

COUNTRY MAGISTRATES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GEELONG ADVERTISER. SIR--There is an old adage, that those who wear the title should first win it, but as a magistrate has not the oppor- tunity before appointment, he should at least endeavour to deserve it after. Twelve months back, the want of magistrates in the country was loudly complained of by the settlers, particul- arly in the western district, when, to get a summons, they were obliged to ride some two hundred miles; yet what will be your astonishment to hear, that al- though two gentlemen have had the honor of getting J.P. affixed to their, names, the difficulty is now doubled; and so proverbial is it that the magi- strates can never be induced to meet, that I think few will again run the risk of attempting to bring cases before them. Two cases were to have been heard at the residence of one of these gentlemen on Monday last; one, a com- plaint of a servant against his master, the other of a master against his servant. The parties ...

REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENTS FOR COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 28 February 1842

REPRESENTATIVE GOVERNMENTS FOR COLONIES. From the Australasiran Recor d. IT is of the utmost importance to the welfare of a colony, that a good under standing should exist between its in habitants and its Governor. Hie is there as the representative of the Sovereign, and as such is entitled to respect; and happy is it both for governor and co lonists when their frequent intercourse becomes the means of elevating that respect into esteem. This can scarcely be the case where it becomes the duty of a governor to carry out a policy, dictated to him from home, which is distasteful to the great body of the colonists, and that this too frequently happens is a' lamentable fact. Indeed it is almost impossible that it should be otherwise when it is recollected that on entering many of our colonies, an Englishman is deprived of those political rights he enjoys in the mother country, and placed under the govern ment of some military or naval ollicer, who is responsible only to the colonial mini...
