To the Editor of the Geelong Advertiser and Syuatters' Advocate. London, November 30, 1845. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 22 April 1846

To the Editor of the Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate. London, November 30, 1845. SIR,-In my last I named a report, that the duties were likely to come off, by an Order in Council, upon all Grain in bond. or imported ; this report induced doubts and depressed our market, 'tis now beginning to revive again. The Potatoe Di-ease turns out very bad, many cargoes arriving from the North are all spoilt, and large quantities are being used for feeding stock, fearing they would not keep the winter, hence the stock is being used more than usual, which will aggravate the evil. We are looking fbrward to high prices for every thing eatable, and shall certainly be higher even though the duties are taken ff Foreign Grain, and the duty will not .o lower at present. 25 qr. have arrived Since my last from Port Phillip, and 630 jr. from Launceston; sells at 70s and upwards. No other grain but Wheat will pay here from your quarter. S IViLLS, PUCKL, AND Co 148, St. Margaret's Hill, Southwark....

LIABILITY OF ORIGINAL SUBSCRIBERS TO RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 22 April 1846

L. LIABILITY OF ORIGINAL SUB SCRIBERS TO RAILWAYS. (From Bell's Life.) From the number of letters which we receive as to the liability of the original subscribers to railway companies, it would appear that the subject is but little under stood, notwithstanding the willingness which the public hare displayed to incur those liabilities. When an individual has obtained an allotment or share, on paying his deposit and receiving the scrip, he signs two deeds, one for the purpose of enabling the direc tors to apply to Parliament for an act to construct the railway in question, and the other for the purpose of binding the sub. scribers individually to the company to carry the same into effect when the act is obtained: the latter liability is, however, in most cases, confined to the amount of the shares held by each individual. The standing orders of Parliament require that the " Parliamentary Deed" shall be sub scribed for two-thirds of the whole amount of the capital required for the unde...

OCCUPATION LICENSES. PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 22 April 1846

OCCUPATION LICENSEiS.- PUiB LLC MEETING. A meeting was held at Mack's Hotel on Monday, the 20th instant, in com pliance with the terms of a requisition by advertisement, for the purpose of taking into consideration the propriety of pe= titioning Government to suspend the operation of the notice issued by Mr Hoddle, respecting the annual sale of Occupation Licenses. Mr Willis having been called to the chair, read the requisition, and briefly alluded to his views of the measure they had assemb'ed to oppose. It was un necessary to enter into detail, as all that the squatters wanted was time; lthey only desired the suspension of the Government proposal to sell occupation licenses until the final adjustment of the squatting question. There was only one point under consideration, and it was so apparent to all, that there was no occa sion to discuss its merits. *He came there not merely as a squatter or as a landholder, for in petitioning tor the ob ject the meeting had in view, he adopted...

COLONIAL RAILWAYS. To the Editor of the Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 22 April 1846

COLONIAL RAILWAYS. To the Editor of the Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate. SIR,-I think the railway scheme as well as its indefatigable propounder were too unceremoniously treated by the Editor of the Gazette in Saturday's pub lication. The Patriot discussed the sub ject in thle manly and temperate spirit its importance deserves, and for so duing is ranked as one who "cannot see an inchlbefore his nose." Now, with every deference to the visual powers of tlhe editor of the Gazette, I am willing to braye a like imputation of short-sigltcd ness for the purpose, not of extolling the advantages of the scheme, but of de precating the unjust, nay, acrimonious, spirit in which it ihas been criticised. The greater part of the article has as little reference to railways as to the Grand Mogul, being nothing more or less than a personal tirade on Dr Thomson. We read-' Surely if the Geelong people are so very anxious as we are led to believe for this grand company and railway -concern t...

PEEL AND THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 22 April 1846

PEEL-AND THE PRESS. k1. [From the Atlas.] . NoT one of the least. remarkable results: of.Sir Robert Peel's pelicv,.is'the posi tion in.which it has left him inrelation> to the Conservative press.of the coantry. He came into office its hero-its demi God i now few '" so poor to do. him re-. verence." Three ;years "ago he was universally worshippedhby, it; now, he is very generally despised by. it. It tis not merely, the. Times that .has turned the heavy artillery of its elo quence, its reasoning, and its.wit against the Premier; it is not merely the Post which keeps up , a constantly annoying, and severely irritating fire on all that he says and.does; it is not merely.that the provincial Conservative journals are either sulky or silent. All this were of. itself hard to bear;. yet is it but a part of what Sir Robert has to undergo. He might find consolation for the assaults of remorseless journalists, if he were, still upheld by.the calnmer and soberer, though far less influential, ...

EFFECTS OF TOBACCO. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 22 April 1846

EFF?c'rS of ToBAcco.-The follow ing extract ,is' .from a paper by . Dr Allnati, on the " Effects of Tobacco," in the last. number of the Medical Gazette.:-" The esseftial oil of to bacco is' formed by distillation, hence it is produced in the ordinary practice of smoking. A curious illustration of the deadly power of this substance is given in Barrow's Travels in Africa : 'As I was endeavouring,' he writes, 'to set a snake at liberty, one of the Hottentots took out with the point of a stick, a small quantity of a thick black matter, from the short stem of his tobacco-pipe, which he called to bacco oil. This he applied to the mouth of the snake while darting out its tongue, as those animals usually do when enraged. The effect was in stantaneous, like that of an electric shock* With a convulsed motion that was momentary, the snake hilf untwisted itself, and never. stirried more: and the muscles were so coin trscted, that the whole reptile felt hard and rigid, as though dried in 'the L...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 22 April 1846

VAN DIE.MEN'S LAND. EMBARRAISSMENT.-lt is with deep regret we have to announce that the long established and extensive house of Henty & Co., have become embarrassed; this is almost the last of the old firms known in Launceston, but although the public are familiar with failures, yet no sooner was the painful report known, than strong and universal sympathy was felt and expressed. The head of the firm is a gentleman who possessed the confidence of those with whom lie transacted busi ness, the respect of other merchan's, and the esteem of the whole community. An unexpected demand from England is the cause of the sudden stoppage. Henty Brothers, of Portland Bay, being an en tirely distinct interest, will not be effected by the lamentable event. Trueir trans actions in the common course of business through the Launceston firm, are regu larly met by their bankers, who have handsomely come forward to protect their honor.

LORD JOHN RUSSELL TO THE ELECTORS OF THE CITY OF LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 22 April 1846

LORD JOHN RUSSELL TO THE ELECTORS OF THE CITY OF LONDON. GENTLEMEN,-The present state of the country, in regard to its supply of food, cannot be viewed without appre hension. Forethought and bold pre caution may avert any serious evils- indecision and procrastination may produce aastate of suffering which is. frightful to contemplate. Three weeks ago it was generally expected that Parliament would be immediately called together. The an nouncement that Ministers were pre pared at that time to advise the Crown to summon Parliament, and to pro pose on their first meeting a suspen sion of the import duties on corn, would have caused orders at once to be sentto various ports of Europe and America for the purchase and trans mission of grain for the consumption of the United Kingdom. An order in Council dispensing with the law was neither necessary nor desirable. No part) in Parliament would have itself respousib'e for the obstruction of a measure so urgent and so bene ficial.

GEELONG A LABOR DEPOT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 22 April 1846

GEELONG A LABOR DEPOT.--The fol- lowing rumour appears in the columns of the Melbourne Herald. If true, we shall soon hear a confirmation of it; in the mean time, speculation on its authen- ticity would be premature. IMPORTANT.--Our Sydney corres- pondent has forwarded us the follow- ing important information :--" The following is an extract from a private letter from a gentleman of rank, dated London, Nov. 25. Of the nature of the Labor Depot to be formed at Gee- long, we cannot, of course, speak, but give our readers the extract as we have it ; ' I arrived in London on Sunday. I find that Government in- tend to do nothing in New Holland, yet, as regards the establisment of a Penal Settlement. A Labor Depot is to be formed at Geelong. Both Lord Lyndhurst and Sir J.

HOBART TOWN SUPREME COURT. Richardson v. Armytage. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 22 April 1846

HOBART TOWN SUPREME COURT. Richardson v. Armytage. The third trial of this tedious cause, before the Supreme Court, occupied the whole of Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday last, before His Honor the Chief Justice and a special Jury. The former Trials will be in the recollection of our readers. The declaration set out, that the Plaintiff being in the possession and occupation of a school from which she de rived a certain profit and advantage, was injured in her vocation as School-mistress, and also in her name and reputation, by uttering and publishing of certain words by the Defendant, to one Mr John Davis, namely "If you will come with me I will shew you letters written by Mrs Richard. son, which the most common prostitute would not have written;" whereby she was injured and suffered loss in her vocation, by the withdrawal by the said John Davis, of his children from her school, and other wise. To this declaration the defendant pleaded, first ; (the general issue) not guilty. ...
