His Grace, how ever, was suliciently left to himself,' in the course of his drive on the occasion we refer to, to leavelhis cnarriage on the street to step into one of the fashionable shops in the great metropolis, probably. to order more goods without the slight-: est intention of paying for them ; but' n...

IMMIGRANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 7 March 1842
IMMIGRANTS &nbsp; &nbsp; ON Monday last, the snip Regulus &nbsp; with immigrants, arrived in the harbour of Geelong. On Wednesday the immi grants landed at the Jetty, and, were soon after lodged on shore. The Re gulus is the first emigrant ship which has been sent here and we would ap plaud the apparent liberility of the Melbourne government, were we not convinced that in this transaction they have not been so much prompted by a consideration of our wants, as by a de sire to relieve themselves of the super fluous supply which so far exceeds the demand of Melbourne as to render the policy of the government exceedingly embarrasing. But as the result of the present arrangement will be favorable &nbsp; to all parties, we can afford to overlook the abstract motives of our rulers. Although the .immigrants who have thus arrived, fare not of the most useful &nbsp; description a very small portion of them being available as farm labourers, still they...

THE JUDGE AND THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 14 March 1842
THE.JUDGE AND THE PRESS. Like every other question that comes under th? notice of dur Melbourne. contempora'ries, the discussion arising out ofthe: late rupture between the Benclih' and ttlihe Press has been worn si'mp?ietely, threadbare, and the very mehtion of the subject is now voted a bore.' The worst of it is, thait the question. is not rendered a whit the. clearer by the running commentary that is ?made on it ; and a still greater evil is, that the original libel for which, Alr Arden ~has been so severely pun ished, appears to have acted as i.sort of nucleus ,for the. formation of other libels, as one? crystal forms the bases.of others; so that, if the con uctors of the Gazette have not hithe'to deserved punishment,- they very soon will. It; isi to be deplored that 'those who call. ,themselves the friends of the im prisoaned editor should so. far forget' the interesse of their client as to` er ,Kcoiirage him in the continued.oggrava tion of. his original offence.

REPRESENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 14 March 1842
REPRESENTATION. . A Meeting was held in Sydney, about a forinight ago, for the purpose of getting up a petition to the Imperial Parliament, .In favor of a representative constitution -for New South Wales. In consequence of the factious conduct of contending parties at that meeting, the object for which it was convened could not be accomplished. The disturbance as}'occasion d by the proposal of two different petitions for the same object, the one backed by Captain O'Connell and -the moderate Whigs, and the other by Mr Macdermott and the ultra-Radicals By the last overland mail, we learn that a compromise has been made be. tween the two parties,'-so as to emisure unity in the' common cause' of procuring the` recognition of our legislative rights. A form of petition has been agrecd to, which wil'meet the views of the whole iie'ral larty, and ainoither meeting was called for the 96th February (the day of the'"mail's departure) when it wasex-. .i?cted .that the petition wo~uild be adlopi...
MISCELLANEA. CHANCES OF WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 14 March 1842
d IISCELIANRA. CHANCES OF WAIR. , Frdm an Anierican paper. The intelligence: we have had from Europe for a.long time shows that the most prominent nations 'have adopted the fixed policy of greatly extending their naval force. In view of this fact,, the recent' order.in our own country to construct five more steam vessels of ~var with as much speed as may be,,will no doubt meet the appro bation of the whole people. Indepen dent, indeed, ofany foreign movement, it is certain that for protection to our numerous coasts, bays, and harbours, we have been and now are very defi cient in the extent even of a proper hinomresqnadron. The modern improve ments? r'Sdher it very Artain that here after steam power is to take the place, to a grhat extent, of the previously adopted. system of naval operations. The grdat and rapid growth of our country, and the wide spreading of her population, form sufficient consi deration for our keeping a watchful eye over the immediate means of pro tection at hom...

LIES OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 14 March 1842
LIES OF THE DAY. From the orae Press. SWe have received files of the Mourn ing Post downto the,16th August 1843, and copies of the Shockenbad Times to a still later date. The news contained in these papers is of the most lugubrious description, although, from the fact of their being party prints, their sorrow may be caused by the general prosperity. The Globe contains a "' round un varnished tale" of universal distress, stagnation, distrust, disunion, confusion, and misery. The ' Globe' however, is a paper which partakes of the nature of the chameleon, and a great deal depends upon the medium througlh which it is viewed; thus, some politicians never look at the state of affairs except by candle light, whilst others dazzle their weak eyes in a stronger light than they can bear. Thus some say that the times look 'blue ;' the affairs of Europe wear a '.sanguinary' aspect; the 'orange' faction,: is ' dun' 'brown ;' that there is nothing 'green' about the emerald re pealers ; that the sl...

.FATAL ACCIDENT.-On Thursday last, the men at work ot the jetty were ein ployed in fixing the " shears," for the purpose of lifting ind placing the im mense' blocks of stone used in the con struction of tile jetty ; it was found requisite to have a " stay" outwards from the shears; a chain was accordingly made fast to a stone of nearly a ton weight, which was to be sunk about fifty yards out from the Wharf, in nine feet water. The stone was pllaced in a boat, and carried out to the proper situ. ation,: 'Týhere were seven men in the boat; endeavouring to capsize the stone into .the water; but before they could give it a complete turn, it hung on tha gunwale, and the boat-upset, throwing the whole party into the water; fourof the men reached the shore in safety, but the remaninig three were drowned.

But on such a day us the Battle of Waterloo he requested to be allowed to charge with the regiment. In one of the charges he fell, mortally wounded, and was left upon the field. Corporal Scott of the same regiment, who lost his leg, asserts, that when the field was searched for the wounded and slain, the body of Serjeant Weir was found with his name written on his forehead, with his own hand, dipped in his own blood. This he was supposed to have tldotte that his body m'ght be found and known, and that it might not be imagined that he had disappeared ...
