CHURCH OF SCOTLAND [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 8 April 1846
CHURCI, OF SCOTLAND (From the Quarterly Review.) -. The Independence of thle Church" lhas a lofty and commanding sound ; it appeals to generous and disinterested emotions I it seems to ben calm and dignified asserlion that God is to be obeyed rather than man-that religious are to be pre dominant over temporal motives, eternity. over time. Erastinnism again is a word of sinister and ill snunding import; it must contain some dire, .latent heresy. But what does it mean 1 What sense does it now bear to Statesmen or to Clhurchmen who are most conscientiously deter mined to carry principles into firm and consist ent action ? In plain truth, ill our theories of the relation of Church and State,. of the Unity of the Church-whether with excellent Dr Arnold in some unexplained and inexplicable manner we make the State the Church-or, like other high minded and high-toned writers, we ieep them as distinct and antagonist powers-utterly break down when we attempt to apply them to the ex isting or...

SFIRST 5ATTLE. From the advanced and salient situatio) of Forozepore; and its vicinity to the Sikb' capital, its defence againsta sudden attack; became ad;flcult operation. It was always possible for the Sikh Governnment.to throw a formidable force upon it, before one suffi ciently numerous could, on our side, be collected to support. But when, upon the 11th instant, it became known at Umballa, where I had established my head quarters, that this invasion had actually taken place; the efforts to repel it followed each other in rapid succession ; notwithstrinding I had the fullest confidence in Msaj.r General Sir John Littler, commanding at :Ferocepore, and in. the devotedness and gallantry of. the troops. occupying it, The troops from the different stations in the Sirhind Division, were directed to move; by forced marches, upon Busseean, where,: by a most judicious arrangement, you had directed supplies to be collectedi within a wonderfully short space of time, The main portion of th...

THE VICTORIES IN INDIA. In our last we gave the General Orders proclaitried by the Governor General of India, announcing the result of the conflicts with the Sikh army on the Sutledge. We 1low subjoin such additional particulars from the despatches' of the Commander in Chief as may be of interest. The aspect of the contesatappears to have been, from the great disproportion of numbers, at several times somewhat doubtful; and the fortunes of the day might have been completely changed by comparatively trivial events. Even, however, had the result been different, the triumph of, the Sikhna would have been siort-lived.f lr.-'the British power in India: may no01 be considered all-paramount.

QUARTER SESSIONS. His Honor-.the Judge yesterday upon takirn his seat on bench as Chairman of the Quarter Sessions,. addressing Lthe Crown Prosecutor, observed upon the anomalous position in which he was placed. His Honor said, that although desirous? of performing every duty that devolved upon him, he was most un willing to admit any right. to perform the duties of Chairman of -the Cour of Quarter Sessiuns. He thought that it was casting -an unmerited stigma upon the gentlemen in the Commission of the Peace to cause the office !of their Chair mani tobe placed in the -hands of the Resident Judge; and he was not -pre pared to say whether or not, by accept ing such office, the Commission ol'Judge would not thereby be abrogated.

DR LEICHHARDT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 8 April 1846
.DR LEICHHARDT. 'The brilliant success of Dr Leiclhardt has thrown the Sydney public into per fect ruptures of joy.; too much so, indeed, to admit of theitrforming a rational esti materof the real value of his discoireries. El Dorados have been discovered without number in times past, but it seems, after all, that the real El 'Dorado is. to' the northward of Moreton Bay. Dr.Leich hardt himself takes a more rational view of the matter ; if, indeed, he does not go into the opposite extreme of undervaluing those :achievements so indiscreetly mag nified by his admirers. The' Sydney Herald launches out in the following style : "n9 a journey of which, as a whole, it would, perhaps, be difficult:: to find a parallel, either in ancient or modern times, -a journey occupying eighteen months, and tracking fifteen 'hundred miles as the crow"ilies, but at least three thousand miles as actually trodden, of a country never before pressed by civilized man, and abounding with dangers and, difficulti...

AT a Public Meeting at Hinton, Mr' Windeyer -said the object of his visit was not only to tell what had been done, but to ascertain wihat was to do, to "learn the views of the con stituency on particular subjects. In accordance with this .plan, lie would first state-in what he deemed he had been of -service. It was a diflicult thing to arrange multifarious -topics in good order, but as his own con duct was an important conrsideration no doubt with his constituents, he would state seriatim what he had done in each. partictilar measure in which he had interested himself, and why he had not dlone more. 'During the session the Colonial party had lost strength; the Downing-street policy had found means to sow the seeds of discord. At the commencement of the session' he.
