SALE OF OCCUPATION LICENSES.--A notice has just emanated from the Dis- trict Surveyor's Office, announcing the resumption of the system of putting up surveyed sections of land within the boundaries of the counties, to public auc- tion, annually. What the object of the Government can be, in reviving the most objectionable feature of the present system of disposing of Crown Lands, at a time when the whole system is supposed to be drawing to an end, is not easily under- stood We are glad to hear that the squatters in the country of Bourke are determined to make an effort to procure the withdrawal of the notice; and a public meeting was to have been held yesterday, for that purpose, the particu- lars of which we hope to be able to lay before our readers in our next.

SUEZ. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 1 April 1846

Suaz.--T'he town of Suez is a most miserable place, consisting of an irregular .group of mud huts,-separated here and there by crooked narrow lanes,'ituat'ed on the borders of the desert and on the shore of the Red Sea-at the north end or the termination of the Gulph of Suez. With bad and unwholesome water, not a shrub nor a blade of grass is to be seen around it. Looking to the southward you see the Red Sea rolling between the darkbluff mountainsof Egypt anal Arabia; on all other sides nothing is to be seen but the burning sands of the desert. The population consists of Arabs of the lowest grade, Turks, Moors, Greeks, Abys sinians, Nubians, and other Africans, all of inferior caste. There are hovels which go unider the name of hotels, the " Bri tish," the "French," and the " Transit Company's," but all are conducted on a scale of the greatest wretchednless ima ginable,-badly construe ed and badly kept, filthy in the extreme, and overrun ning with bugs, fleas and lizards, " and all ...

TO THE COLONISTS OF NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 1 April 1846

TO THE COLONISTS OF NEW SOU I'H WALES. Per favor of the Sydney Morning Herald. GENTLEMEN,-On Saturday last, a letter appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald, from the Rev. Jolhn Dunmore Lang, in which the Rev. Gentleman connects my name with Sectarian principles, and wherein he asks Protestants" to consider whether they have not some reason to expect a repetition of the well known re sults of the last great immigration flood" from Ireland through my instrnmentality. There is something unkind in all this; I feel conscious that I do not deserve it I can fearlessly appeal to every clergy man, to every man, woman, and child in the colony, if I have either directly or indirectly lent my influence to a Secta rian purpose. The Rev. Doctor admits this, and in proof of it he is pleased to add his name to my "testimonial ;" but, gentlemen, what security can I give for the future, better then the past?
