CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 15 April 1846
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. (From the Sydney Herald.) IWE received per Regia, from Swari River, some Cape papers antecedent to those re: ceived some time since, but comoleting our files to the 4th December. We do not ob serve any matter of importance which has not already been noticed. It will be recol lected that an order had been promulgated by which the duty on French. brandy, of which the wine-growers had beei large importers for the purpose of mixing with their wines, had been raised from 4d to Is per gallon. The winegr)owers were loud in their complaints, and they were to have public meetings with a view to petition the Queen to alloav them to mix the requisite quantity of brandy with their' wines in bond; ,. and thus in effect free of iniy duty." The Zuid Afrikaan says of the proposed petition - , a more barefaced or absurd petition, we believe, has never met the public eye." Some excitement had pre vailed with respect to the trial of two Englishmen for the murder of a Dutch farmer T....

GEELONG AND GLENELG RAILWAY [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 15 April 1846
GEELONG AND GLENELG R'AILWAYC (From the Port Phillip Pattiot.). IN our present number we publish a re port of a Railway Meeting held at Geelong on the 31stultimo, to consider the propriety of cstablishing a line from the latter town to the Glenelg. We would have taken earlier notice of these proceedings, had not other interesting matter claimed prece dence. With respect to the scheme itself, it re qures no exercise of argument to explain the advantages that must accrue from the introduction of any feasible arrangement calculated. to facilitate the operations of trade, and open up new sources for com merce and enterprise; neithir is it needfull to expiate ipon'the moral anidsocial effect, caused by the iagency of ihit-, apid inter communiou; which has behi designated the phenomenon of-the 19th century.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 15 April 1846
The Sydney and Melbourne papers are filled with denunciations against the squatters for keepingout respect able emigrants from a share in the soil, and for hindering the erection of villages, and the concentration of po pulation in the bush. A more absurd idea:we never -encountered. 'Were it not: for the squatters there-would be no-'population whatever in the bush. Were. it not for the squatters even Leichhardt's discoveries would be valueless. If the croakers had their own way they would convert Port Phillip into a miserable imilation of Swan River, a settlement which would have been abandoned long ago had: the settlers not changed their plans, and taken to squatting. The squatters of this district, at the very time ithey are accused of keeping people out of the:colony, are doing all in 'theii power to bring:as many as possible into it: It is ;perfectly ab surd to talk of covering-the land with villages and farms by turning out the present occupiers. -With -not one hundredth, part ...
GEOLOGY OF AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 15 April 1846
GEOLOGY OF AUSTRALIA. (From the Sidnrey Herald.) It has always appeared an anomaly to European geologists, that lwhilst beds conltaining fossil shells of genera kdown to them as characteristic ot rocks imme diately under the coal formation existed iin New South Wales, in somewhat simi lar alliance, no identioal species of fossil plant of similarly disposed earboniferoni beds should exist. Suspicions existed, that at the distance of this colony from Europe, there might be an actual'identity of tbrmation, with a local diversity of fossils ; just as the sea beating the shores of New Holland and Old Holland would, under different latitudes, longitudes, and climates, prboduce similar deposits of de tritus from the existing lands of the pre sent day, but charged with the distinict vegetable relquiqsi or marine testacea of the separate hemispheres. Theire would then be naturally expected in tlhe ancierit rock. deposits of Australia very similar conditions to those observable in Europe, tho...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 15 April 1846
VAN DIE1EN'S LAND. ' TE FLooDs.-The three days and nights rain have caused extensive floods in miny paris of lhe interior. In the nerghbourhoodl of the Nile large tracts of land areounder water, and the bridge at Mir I'yke's, MIarathbn', has been carried away.

SIR GEORGE GIPPS [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 15 April 1846
Srm GEORGE Gspes.-We learn, from authority on which reliance may be placed, that Sir George Gipps immedi ately upon receiving the very handsome expression of the sense entertained by ministers of his valuable services during his seven years' government of New South Wales, accompanied by signifying tile Queen's pleasure that his Excellency should remain in office for another of the six.annual periods, wrote to Lord Stan ley, of course gratefully acknowledging the honbr conferred on him, but expres sing his wish to be relieved. We believe his Excellency gave the noble Secretary of State several reasons inducing him to come to this decision, the chief one being thedifficulties which any Governor would have to encounter with a Legislative Council, composed so anomalously as that which exists in New South VWales. We filrther learn, that Lord Stanley has written in reply, exlpressing his regret at this determination of Sir George Gipps, and that should his Excellency continue the same opi...
TAHITI. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 15 April 1846
[AHITI. The Memorial Bordelas publishes the followiing letter from Tahiti, dated tile 3rd April: "*In consequence 'of an event, wmhich occurred two months ago, we are no longer able to make any excursions. The native women were in the habit of swimming to the American whale abships in the bay, and remaining there for the night. The commandant, M. Almarie, published an order expressly forbidding this, on pain of imprisonment; but, as it was persisted in, he was obliged to lay hold of several women, who were taken to prison. Amongst them was 'ihe daughter of one of the chiefs of the Kanaks, Although hie had approved of the order, lie came two days afterwards to claim his daughter; hut the Governor informed her that she, as well as the others, shoultl undergo her punishment of eight days' inprisoinment. The chief, whose name is Pacoco. on his return home, immediately sent ten Kanaks into the valley ti kill sevenly oxen belonging to the French, who had received them from Chili and Calif...

SYDNEY. SIR THOMAS MITCHELL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 15 April 1846
SYDNEY. SIR THOMAS MITCHELL. On Saturday, letters were received from Sir Thomas Mitchell, who is ad- vancing from Fort Bourke to the northward. He is nearly one hun- dred miles west of the Darling, and is in raptures with the country he is travelling over, which he says far surpasses any he has seen in the co- lony—even in the best parts of Aus- tralia Felix. His exact position at the date of the letter was latitude 29.45.5, longitude 147.34.30. Sir Thomas writes in high spirits, and considered the prospects of the expe- dition most flattering: all the party were well. He had received accounts of the result of Captain Sturt's travels, and there is now no doubt that the despatches containing Leich- hardt's diary will overtake him. The discovery of so much good country to the west of us is in the highest degree gratifying.—Sydney Herald. &nbsp;

THE RAILWAY BELL GLOBE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 April 1846
THE RiAILWAY BELL GLOBE. The London Correspondant of the Athen eum gives us the following description of the establishment of a new Railway news paper, and its efforts to become popular, as follows: "I have mentioned on former occasions the schemes of the Railway Bell to force itself into notoriety. The proprietors have now resorted to the singular expedient of bestowing a bonus of a three guinea terrestrial globe upon all persons who sub scribe to the paper for one twelvemonth. How they can make it pay I cannot con ceive. The globes are very well made and may be worth half the alleged value; what then becomes of the advantage of giving away £1 lts 6d for a subscription of £1 10s ? One can only suppose the globes to have been bought of a man who had an immense lot on hand and glad to sell them for anything. An immense globe is sus pended over the door way of the Bell office, and by way of obtaining the means of advertising, the proprietors have actually pretended the cess pool in fr...
EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 April 1846
EUROPE. The Augsburgh Gazette gives, in a letter dated from " The banks of the Black Sea,'.' and said to have been written by ta Russian, officer, the following account of theicam-. paign'in the Caucasus:' "Count Woronzowu has executed ihe. boldest but 'ils'o the mdst sanguinary cam paign that a Russian army ever made in this country. But it, must: be confessed,. uiifortunately, that the successes which have been obtained are not a.compensatton for the losses. The Russians have lost. more than 3000 men, am~ongst whom were some very distinguished'officers. The bad weather accompanied them as far as Andy. fl'be sitmmit of the central' chain was. covered with snow to the south, as also'to the heights of Retchel. Notwithstanding the severe cold, the troops labored at the embankments to fortify the provision. stores. The avant posts, the companies ot" Ausinia, and the militia of the Caucasus. were in observation in fitc'of the enemy; they even repulsed some detachiments which attempted t...
MAURITIUS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 April 1846
MAURI'TIUS. WE have files of Le Mauricien from 1st January to 28th February, from which we give copious extracts in our present number. These papers contain a vast fund of information respecting the African and Indian Islands, and being intended for circulation among the semi-French inhabitants, many particulars of great importance, whirh do not usually find their way into English newspapers, are. elicited. : As might have been expected, a great sensation existed in the Isle of France, in consequence of aii order in council hav ing been issued for the use of the English. Language itn the various Courts of Law in the Colony. The Mauritians would not complain of the eventual introduc tion of the English Language-it is what they must look for some time or other but they ' do complain of the suddenness of the order in council. The planters are, it seems, sadly an noyed by the"' bolting" (politely termed absenteeism) of their servants, and the Government has taken steps to capture the ru...
