RAILWAYS. PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 1 April 1846

RAILWAYS. PUBLIC MEETING. On Tuesday evening last, a public. meeting was held pursuant to pubiic ad vertisement,' for the purpose of con sidering the propriety of encouraging the foimation of railways in the district. Mr Harrison, on being voted into the chair, remarked, that he had expected that some of those gentlemen, who were more immediately interested in the sub ject would have come forward ; but he supposed that. their unwillingness arose from the novelty of the subject to be dis cussed, and their reluctance to commit themselves at so early a stage of the proceedings. 'The subject was one, upon which, whatever their ultimate opinions might be, it was their duty, from its importance to this community, to examine into, andi report upon. For tunately he was not called upon' to ex press any :opinion, on onle side. or the other, but to listen to whatever argumetis might be brought forward, and he there. fore requested that those gentlemen 'who had any proposals to bring forward sh...

:IEKE aD bKAWITI.-Althlugh these Native Chiefs have formally made peace withz the Government, it appears that they are still restless and unsettled. Last week Kawiwi caine down with two hun dred followers, to Kaipara, to see the native 'chief Tirarau. On their arrival there wvas the usual tiring, feasting, dane ing, shouting, and numerous speeches. The: object of Kaniti was to influence Tirarau' to form an alliance with h:m and H-leke; but Tirarau avowed hiniself openly belore the whole of the Nnapuhi, as the friend of"the white men, and.. ex pressed his firn, determiunalion not to join in any outrage or agression towahds them., Kawiti boasted to Tl'rarau, that, with liij handfiul of nen, he had with stood and lieaten the English, with all the force they could collect froint Port Jackson and other places, and that he had lost very few men.

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

UNITEtD STATES. The news from theUnited States comes down to the 15th October. The U.S. Government had received reports of two expeditions which were conducted by that hardy and gallant pioneer Captain Fremont, into Oregon, and into Cali fornia ; in this'last one the Government had nothing to say, though the two first were under its auspices. Mr Polk will, doubtless be very firm in advocating the entire occupation of all the territory that lies between the degrees of 42 and 54 40, and which this country has an un doubted right to. As regards the home policy that will be pursued, we are informed from the same source, that the President will un. doubtedly advocate a modification of the present tariff, and that he will probably recommend some measure similar to the Compromise Act of 1832. which con sisted in placing everything on the seine footing, and in charging a 20 per cent. ad valorem duty. Judging. from the.course.of the late elections in every part of the Uilion,> there has b...

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

SPORT'ING IN'T~LLIGENCE. The raffle for Petrel came off on Mon dlay last, wh' n Mr Riddell, of the firm of Riddell and Hamilton, was the winner. Paul Jones is now the property of Mr George Vingo. At a sale of horses in Melbourne, Wild Harry fetched £60,` Queen of Hearts £35, and- Napoleon £25. The Melbourne Turfites are resolved to have a code. of racing laws' of their own; it would, we suppose, be con sidered infra dig. to adopt those of the Geelong Committee, which were drawn up with the greatest care and attention. The ruffian who assaulted Mr Dewing has not yet been captured, but a clue has heeu found to his identity, and the police are on the alert. Sweetmeat was raffled for on Saturday last; the total subscription was £60, the winner being Mr Richardsomi, of Perin Allack, but who re-sold him to the former owner for- £40. There is some talk of a match between Petrel and Will-it-he-can, the latter getting a distance in a three-mile race.

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

IMMIGRATION SOCIETIES. The Geelong Settlers are now beginning to realise the advantage of their persever ance and liberality in the formation and management of their immigration society. Had they, after the failure of their repeated attempts to procure the co-operation of their Portland and Melbourne neighbours, given up their task in despair under the im- pression that they were helping others who would not help themselves, they would not now have had the satisfaction of enjoying the reward of their perseverance. Not only have kindred societies sprung up in Portland and Melbourne, whose operations have hitherto been characterised by a libe- ral promptitude. but additional strength may be expected to accrue to their own ranks, as those settlers who have not joined either of the societies will feel imperatively called upon to do so; so that in a short period the whole body of settlers in Port Phillip will be working out the same plan. We subjoin (from the Patriot) a report of the Mel...

PORTLAND IlfMIGRATION SOCIETY. SOME symptoms of disaffection having displayed themselves among the meinm bers of this Society, the Committee re assembled, and made several important alterations in their laws, which nos stand as follows: First-That every stockholder wishing to become a member of the Association, shall subscribe the sum of £1 for every thousand sheep, or five hundred head of cattle depastured on his run; the sum of £1 being the estimated cost per man, of passage-money, from Van Diemen's Land. Secondly-That whereas several of the stockholders of the district have already (that is, in the month of November, 1845) subscribed certain sums of money for the purpose of importing laborers from Van Diemen's Land, antd a portion of the money so subscribed has been ac tually expended, to the amount of £94, there being a balance still in the hands of S.

GRIEVANCES OF THE NEW ZEALANDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 April 1846

GRIEVANCES OF THE NEW ZEALANDERS. Governor Fitzroy, in a despatch dated 10th October, 1844, wherein he presses most earnestly for military and naval as sistance, attributes the dissatisfaction of the Maories principally to the influence exercised over them by designing Euro peans, who are continually calling the attention of the already discontented chiefs to what the British government has done with reference to the aborigines of New South Wales and other countries. Some of the elder chiefs, indeed, are de sirous of peace; but the influence of these chiefs is much impaired, and many of the younger aspirants to power are desirous of making a name themselves by war. Governor Fitzrov says "Were there a military power in the country sufficient to guarantee the safety of the well-disposed, we should, in the event of hostilities, have the majority at least of the native population on our aide, and actively our friends; but as the case now stands, they would remain neuter. "A shrewd chief...

1NDIA. Tns .transfer of the Danish national es tablishments in India, to the East India Company, was finally carried into effect during the first fortnight in October last, almost without any of the usual demonstrations which mark such events. At Serampore, two commissioners; Mr Harvey and Mr Barry, made their appearance, and after reading the Act of transfer, caused the substitution of the British flag for the Danish, without a single salvo of artillery by way of sahlite. Some days previously, an extraordinary panio seized the inhabitants of the smnall city abovenamed, to whom it had been intimated that .they were abont to pass under another domination. The 4th of October had been fixed for the comple. tion of the transfer, and on the morning of that day, all eyes were turned towards Barrackpore, whence the English com missioners were expected to cross the river, under the escort of a company of Sepoys. But the day passed away, and night drew near without the commis sioners having ...
