No Title [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 28 March 1842

The rapid increase in the popu, lation of Geelong will no doubt be accompanied by the usual propor tion of casualties, leading to in dividual distress and suffering, from which the most favoured and best regulated communities under the sun have never been altogether ex empt. Within the last few weeks, a number of instances have occurred which tend to show that the expe rience of this community will be similar to the experience of every other, and that, however favored we may be in other respects, it is vain to expect that the hand of destiny will refrain from spreading the seeds of misery here as else where. One instance within the last few days has led to a result which, while it teaches us our li ability, to misfortune, a't the same time has led the community to a knowledge of the means of al leviation within their power; and which, if properly followed up, may have the effect of leading the well.directed efforts of the people. in time to come, to procure a per manent source of re...

SWAN RIVER. A company has been formed for the purpose of establishing a steam-boat or boats on the. Swan River, to be called " the Western Australian Steam-boat Company." Capital £6,000 in 600 shares of £10 each. A notice is about. to be issued by order of his Excellency the Governor to the effect that, in consequence of the present large and increasing demands on the public chest, it is his intention at an early period to introduce a bill for the consideration of the members of the legislative council, imposing an ' ad va lorem' duty on all imports. NATIVE MARRItIAGE AT PERTH - On Sunday last the ceremony of marriage between John Warrup and Mary Dwoy up, two aboriginal natives, was per formed by the Rev. M. Smithies an the Wesleyan chapel, Perth. The rite of baptism had previously been adminis tered, and the duties they had mutually contracted fully explained to the newly married couple in a style suited to their limited comprehension.

THE BAR. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 28 March 1842

TiuE BAI.-At length, we arc happy to announce, the government have com menced operations in improving the harbour, by marking off the channel leading into Corio Bay. The Ranger, Revenue cutter, which arrived here on Tuesday last with emigrants, after run ning aground on the sand-spit off the Bird Rock, (the first instance we have known of such an occurrence), pro. ceeded to lay down a large buoy at the entrance to the channel, and then re turned to Williams' Town for the re mainder of a set of buoys and moorings, five or six in number. The buoys are madeof large tun butts, securely hooped and fastened ; the moorings are of such a weight as previous experience has shown to be requisite; the buoys will float high out of the water, and be readily seen, so that it will be scarcely possible for any vessel to mistake the channel in future. VIsaTons. - During the last week there has been an unusual number of the Melbourne aristocracy quartered in this little township; and one and all of th...

SPAIN. RUMOURS OF INCORPORATING PORTUGAL AND SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 28 March 1842

SPAIN. RutOURS OF IlCOtRPORATING POst TUGAL .AND SPAIN .-- Some comimunlica tions have reached us from a source to which we are accustomed to attach the highest confidence, wherein we find it alleged that the position of Espartero and the real state of political parties in Spain " are very inaccurately appre ciated by a majority of the British public at this moment." We apprehend that there is no doubt of the continued existence and vigorous prosecution of a negociation which has been for some time pending between the two extreme parties in that distracted country-the Modrados and the Carlistas. How ir. reconcileably soever their political principles mty have been heretofore opposed, they have always concurred in a common feeling of strong dislike and opposition to Espartero. The recent abortive attempt of Christina, wicked in its scheme and precipitate in its ex. ecution, has completely dismembered the section which was well disposed to favour hter pretensions, until their own conn...

MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 28 March 1842

MISCELLANEA. Trifles are not to be despised.-The nerve of a tooth, not as large as the fittest cambric nieedle, will sometimes drive a strong man to distraction.-A musquito can make an elephant abso lutely mad.-The coral rock, which causes a navy to founder, is the work of worms.-The warrior that withstood death in a thousand forms may be killed by an insect. Russian Hardiwhood-I have frequent. ly seen a Russian waterman climb down the granite banks of the Neva to reach his host, or to fasten it to the iron ring of the shore. Clinging with the tips of his hands and feet to the almost imperceptible divisions of the morticed squares, the fellow seemed to stick to the stones. Erring, even a finger's width, would have precipitated h m into the waves; this, however, he does not fear in the least, but convenient for him. He will even take his siesta upon the parapet of the river, which is no more than about a foot broad, and there tranquilly repose in the sun shine, thongh a single restle...

REPORT ON MINES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 28 March 1842

REPORT ON MINES: From the Adelaide Examiner. In framing a report on the subject of mining in South Australia, your sub-committee have experienced much difficulty. The facts bearing upon it which they have been able to collect are but few, and since they are par ticularly desirous to avoid any state ments that might lead on the one hand to unwarranted speculation, or on the other, deter from legitimate speculation, they deem it best simply to lay before you the following facts: The hills in this part of the province are chiefly of primary formation, and on their surface traces of minerals are so frequent as to have attracted the attention of almost every person who has had occasion to visit them. In very numerous instances, specimens of metalic substances have been brought into town and exhibited to persons who feel an interest in the subject, in many cases this has led to a personal inspec tion of the localities whence such were derived. Operations have been commenced at these place...

CAPE OF GOOD ROPE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 28 March 1842

CAPE OF GOOD IOPE. The inhabitants of Port Natal are at length to be coerced iulo submission to the British authority. The Dutch colo. nists who had formed this settlement had communicated with the Governor of the Cape colony, claiming to be re. cognised as an independent state, and denying their naturatization, or their being Bl3ritijh born subjects. This is one pietext for the decided step which Governor Napier holds out in announcing his determination to subjugate that hardy enterprising race; a more reason. able one is not wanting, however. This the Governor of the Cape professes to find in their removing, or offering to remove from their vicinity the Kafir chiefs and their tribes, with whom her Majesty is at peace. This removal, too, of the Kifir tribes, is into the dominion of a chief, Faku, with whom also the British Government has amicable relations; and the agres sious on whose territories Governor Napier feels himself called upon to pre. vent by his interference, lie there...

THE BOOMERANG AND ITS VAGARIES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 28 March 1842

THE BOOMERANG AND ITS VAGARIES. From the Dublin University Magazine. Of all the advantages we have derived from our Australian settlements, none seems to have given more universal satisfaction than the introduction of some crooked pieces of wood shaped like a horse's shoe, or the crescent moon; and called boomerang, waumer. ang, or kilee. Ever since their. struc ture has been fully understood, carpen. ters appear to have ceased from all other work; the windows of toy shops exhibit little else; walking sticks and umbrellas have gone out of fashion; and even in this rainy season no man carries any thing but a boomerang; nor does this species of madness appear to be abating. We had hoped that when the first enthusiasm was over, our fellow citizens would have returned to their senses; but no-a visit to the College Park checks all such vain hopes. That is the place where the relative merits of these boomerangs are tested; it is there that their lovers with eager and delighted gaze watch ...

MIDDLE DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 28 March 1842

MIDDLE DISTRICT. For two months past we have suffered much from dry hot parching weather, which has generally blighted the maiz crop, previously most promising; po. (atoes have shared a similar fate; the gardens have been reduced to compara. tive wildernesses, and the grass so lux uriant this summer, is now little better than stubble. The thermometer stood for days in succession from 98 deg. to 106 deg. in the shade. Hot winds sometimes for a week on a stretch, and bush fires, the natural result of this accident, have been raging on all sides, much to the detriment and danger of stockholders and agriculturists. From Saturday evening, however, we have had a decided change, One night's rain followed by cold cloudy weather, and occasional light showers, with a prospect of more rain, the thermometer now stands about 62 deg'. a fair change from last week. The rain though too late to benefit the crops, is in good time to freshen the grass, and ensure young grass where it has been burnt be...

The Examiner states, that notwith- standing the late abundant harvest. " starvation is commencing its work upon us,".and "ruin, destitution, and dispersion, are in full activity." A " peculiarly fine specimen of pipe- clay" has been discovered in the neigh- bourhood of Adelaide. Captain Martin, one of the sufferers by the ' reverse times,' has committed suicide.
