-' [F ronthe Syilney Specthtor.], Of all monopolies,'ltliat of the public linds:of a country is the'most odious and pernicious. A great: example of rapa cious-speculation proves' fatal to public niorality; every subordinate: injustice seems to bescreened and justified by tihe great example of public robbery.

We have already adverted to the effect of the land system in Ireland where Absenteeism is the curse of the country- and .have shown the too cer- i tain perpetuation ,of a like effect here if the fixity of tenure c!aimed by the occu pants of thefinest lands in the'colony be p conceded.

This invaluable offer is contained in a notice signed by Mr Hoddle; notifying that tile Government will let sections of land of about one mile square at aan upset price of five pounds. There then each man has a chance to begin with from ten to one hundred headof cattle, or from fifty. to five hundred sheep; the beginning of small things is not to he despised. One man, a squatter, came here in 1836 with_ less than a hundred sheep; hle boasted to me last Saiurday that he now owns SugTEEN THOUSAND. Every.nian1: therefdre, that takes one or more sections to begin with may do this, or if he even in ten years' accumulates even sii- or eight thousand sheep, he makes an independence for himself and children.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 11 April 1846

We have for some time past observed a truce in our discussion of matters bear ing on the squatting question, in the hope of quickly hearing the enunciation of the intended policy of the government, respecting which Sir Charles Fitzroy has no doubt already received instruc lions. We find, however, that during the interval of truce, the " enemies of the squatters" (we cannot call them the friends of any class) have been in sually active, and having had the whole stage to themselves, have.grown .quite valiant in their encounters with the shadows conjured up by each other. SVe wobld fail in our duty, however. ifwe allowed the constant repetitidn of false arguments, and distorted statements to pass current in public, ,without' rrising :a-warning voice against their reception asgenuine.

MELBOURNE. THIE'PRItCE'S BRIDGE-This Edifice it is thought, at least, will liot be completed until about two years arid a half. This is the time .estimated by Mr'Lennox; but if it proceeds in the same ratio as since the 'laying of the foundation stone, it will take about half' a cetitury until it unites both sides of' the river. ''Last' week Ihe supplies of stone furnished by the contractor were of a Very limited .character; 'but since ihen they have been teetotally stopped. The mwinner in whiclh -this is accounted for is th'elbwness.oftlhie tender, which altogether precluded thei possibility of its fulfilment. The men employed in quarrying lihave been obliged to " strike" work, in consequence of getting no, money; arid hence a cessa tion of all operations on this side of the river ; and Mr Lennox is :compelled to go to work at *the south, preparing the abutment foundation.

THE SQUATTING QUESTION. To His Excellency the Governor-in-Chief of New South Wales, &c. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 11 April 1846

THE SQUATTING QUESTION. To His Excellency the Governor-in Chief of New South Wales, &c. May it please your Excellency to be informed on some points relating to the province of Port Phillip, soon to be the central seat of Government in these seas. In order to elucidate what I have advanced, I will take two individuals, an Agriculturist and a Squatter Sterne says " take an individual," I will do so and exemplify. B came to Port Phillip in 1835, commenced farming in September 1835, and had a crop of 5 acres of wheat in January 1836, and forty acres the succeeding year. As soon as the Government put up the land of the colony for sale at Melbourne, B bought largely, to nearly the sum of £4000, upwards of £3000 of whiclih, B3 paid into the Colonial Treasury, since which B13 has expended in improve ments, buildings, farming, and garden ing, above ten thousand pounds. B has assisted largely in importing'im migrants, and also in providing food and employment for them, and. not only f...

PUNCH'S LEADER ON RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 11 April 1846

FLNCH'S LEADER ON RAILWAYs. In the present buoyant state of every thing, when prosperity flows like acataract into the pockets of the people, it is sad to see an attempt made to check the onward rolling of thle railway billow. Tihe beauti ful fluctuation of the scrip is like the boundless ocean-now up, now down, like the dancing wave, as it subsides into dis. count, or swell proudly into premium. How shocking therefore is it to find an at tempt made to check the current of this delicious enterprise. But let us crush and expose the fallacy of fear, and by a few touches of our statistical pen, at once restore confidence. Let us take facts. and rush for consolation into the bosom of figures. Sup pose thlrit gold is so much per mile at lHamburgh less than .it is in London, and suppose, moreover, that the consumption of wheat is at the ratio of six. Where, we ask, can be the danger of failure of the sum to maltke good the amount of the calls :for railways. This, we think, is conclusive; ...

THE BATTLES OF MOODKEE AND FEROZEPORE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 11 April 1846

THE BATTLES OF MIOODKEE \AND FEROZEPORE.

Every ciy adds intelligeuce of inter est to our knowledge of occurrences on the " melmrable three days" of our en counter with the army of the Punjab, and all that reaches us proves that not only was the hurricane of war terrific in its violence, but that our dear bought victory was such that in regard to loss of valuable lives, we could not afford to .gain another like 'it.
