ENGLAND. STATE OF THE CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 14 June 1845
ENGLAND. STATE OF THE CHURCfH. Prom the Times. The ultimat'in of ecclesiastical au thority upon the disputed rubrical qjtestiots hal at length appeared in, the shape of a letter " to the Clercy and Laity of his province, hy William, Lord Archbishop of Can terbury." Assuredly his Grace has taken ample time for deliberation. No ,ne can accuse him of precipitancy in oý".'eo$g-Tfa?? ard to?o soon to interpose the needful weight of his Primacy between the hostile parties. But caution is one of the bilraoteristics of of old age,-and indecision, perhaps, is ano. ther. The tone of this production, which Is intended for a panacea for the Fores of the Church, is not marked by that positive condemnation of the offen sive iniovations which we could have wished for, and without which it will have but little efect. Emanating from one so high in rank, and possessed of so nmuch power, it should have spoken unambi'guously and pointedly - not have left the 'matter pretty nearly where it was before. I...
IRISH POLITICS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 14 June 1845
IRISH, POLITICS. PFrom the Times, It must be confessed that we live in puzzling times. The soi.disant Popish faction in Ireland is now literally _at open railing with the Pope; and Mr Daniel O'Connell, in the spirit and with the zeal of an Orangeman, is lecturing,a "' Protestant ' Ministry" on the obliga. tion of their oaths of supremacy and allegiance. We have always thought ourselves that some such dislocation would one day be borced on, but we were hardly prepared for one so rapid or complete as the present. The religious clement of the Roman Catholic Church in [re land has proved too strongfor the poli tical, and has. at length outweighted Mr Daniel O'Connell. It was impossible, if the .Romish Church in Ireland retained one spiltkb f.the real principles or sen. timents of Catholicity, that it should long be otherwise. It was impossible that she shIould* go on long in any, even tacit. concurrence with the seditious..aitd revolutionary'course struck out by Mr t)'Connell; wi-hout f...
COMMITTAL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 14 June 1845
CoMMITTAL.-The man Swords, whose examination was reported in our last, was on Wednesday fully committed to take his trial for bur glary. We are informed that Dr Clerke, the Colonial Surgeon, has lately performed two surgical operations with great success. The one was for a dangerous tumour situated close to the eye of a child ; and the [other was on a boy for that most frightful malformation called double-hare-lip. Both cases have terminated remarkably well; and the great deformity which the latter case presented is totally removed by the operation, to the great joy and satisfaction of the parents of the child.

RIVOLI BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 14 June 1845
RTVOLI BAY. From the Adelaide Observer. By the return of the Governor Gawler, Captain Underwood, from Rivoli Bay, we are put in possession of some very im portant and highly Interesting particulars of the harbour and surrounding district which have now been more fully ex amined, and with results more decidedly satisfactory than heretofore. The coast line of Rivoli Harbour is described by our contemporary of the South Austrahlian as having the form of the spread horns of a bullock, or an extended half moon 'even miles from tip to tip of the horns. Directly in front at the distance of a few miles from the shore are a number of send banks and a small island, and near the tip of the south-east horn, are a few reefs, which so completely pro tect the harbour, that during one of the heaviest gales Captain Underwood has seen, and which continued 50 hours, he pulled about at leisure, and with come fort in a small dingy. Inside of these banks, reefs, and islands, Gaptain Uns derwood sounded a...

Ix our last we quoted from the Herald, a legal opinion on the le gality of the proceedings of the Dis trict Council of Grant; and we shall now give,in a few words, a refutation of the objections adduced. 1. As to the name.-This point has been already tried and decided ib contradiction to Blackstone's Theory. As we have not a law li brary to refer to, we cannot give chapter and verse ; but we have been asured by a gentleman "learned in the law," that such is the case. It is true that a corporation must have a name, but it may acquire one by implication; and this the District Council of Grant has done; for the Charter itself is entitled " Charter incoiporating the D:strict Council of Grant." If a corporation be legally constituted in other respects, it is quite sufficient that it should have acquired a distinguishing name, ex pressive of its nature and position, provided the name be free from am biguity. *2. The Act of Parliament directs that a Warden should be appointed over the Coun...
SWAN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 14 June 1845
SWAN RIVER. (From the Adelaide papers.) Of the Governor's address, the Editor of the Perth Inquirer says, that " it was meagre in the extreme -more so than any of its attenuated predecessors ;" after pretty much edi torial finance jargon, he goes on to ask, What has become of all the money? The expenditure of the Colonial Government amounted to £7220; the payments from the Par liamentary Grant were £7067; and those from the Commissariat £10,300; in all £24,587, exclusive of a con siderable sum spent in Albany. How then (asks the Editor) has it failed to meet our wants ?-a question which he himself solves, by presum ing that the money (in payment of old debts) has found its way into the hands of " some half-dozen persons," who, in their turn, have remitted it to England. The Editor supposes a case which we regret we have not room to recapitulate (it is so very rich); but the upshot is, that people who owe, (say), £20--should not pay it ALL; but, preferring the medias res, keep a fair...

MELBO 3URNE. THE " AMELIA'S". MAIL.-The mail brought by the Amelia from London on Sunday, was the largest ever received in the Sydney Post oflice, consisting of twenty-eight large bags, and containing nineteen thous and one hundred and sixty-nine news papers (or rather newspaper covers, for two or three newspapers are often contained, in one envelope) and five thousand nine hundred and thirty-four letters. We believe that little more than half. the newspapers have yet been delivered, there not being suflicient strength in the Post office to sort such an immense mass in anything like reasonable time.-He raid.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 June 1845
SOUTH AUSTRALIA; That talented artist Mr George French Angas, we learn, is about to proceed to England, there to publish, as soon as possible, his very interesting I Illustrations of South Australia," as well as those of New Zealand. They consist of a vast variety of portraits of the natives, representations of their habitations, ceremonies, costumes, and warlike and domestic implements; forming a collection of graphic materials, to be appreciated only by those, who like the writer of this article, lhave had repeated and gratifying op portunities of viewing them through the kindness and liberality of the artist. Mir Angas has very lately visited Kangaroo Island and Port Lincoln, and has sketched there some peculiar scenery, and some very sin. gular natives at Collin's Bay. loe has also visited WVangaree Lake and the Alarhle Range; from all which places his faithful and industrious pencil has seized and carried off striking tran scripts of the picturesqueo of this Pro vince. In the c...
OPINIONS IN FAVOUR OF THE AUSTRALIAN WHEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 June 1845
OPINIONS IN FAVOUR OF THE AUS TRALIAN WHEAT. The Editor of the Singapore Free Press describes a parcel of South Australian wheat recently imported by Messrs Ker, Rawson, and Co., " as fine, clear, fresh," and far su perior to that usually imported from Bengal, and much preferable to the Bengal grain for bread. A correspondent pf the Sydney Morning Herald, who dtlescribes himself as a praclical farmer and. miller, asserts that the fact of the Adelaide wheat selling in the London market at 4s per quarter more than the English grown, should create no surprise at all in the mind of any man who knows the diffioulty of the English farmer in changing his seed; and, speaking for himself, he says, " I have all along, in my business, given the choice to this grain, and preferred it for the mill, and have always had from it the best flour. It is a rich-coloured, 'round, pure, heavy, good grain-as nimble" as possible in the machine, leaves little or no waste, and the birin flies out as bright a...

SYDNEY* HORSES FoR INDIA.--The RoyaI Consort has taken in the first batch of horses purchaced for the East India Company. The arrangements made by Captain Legge for conduct ing the shipment were highly ap proved of by the officers of the East India Company and other persons present on the occasion; and we consider them well worthy the atten tion of all parties interested in the export of horses to India. Upwards of fifty hcad; were shipped without accident, in the short space of four hours, although the shipment has, on other occasions, frequently occu pied two days.-Horald,

,e. qtuatter ' Jboicate. " Men who know their rights , And, knowing, diru mnintitn." ALTIoUtv?t no public intimation has emanated from the head of the Government, at Sydney, it is ne vertheless certain that he is silently and tsurely proceeding with the organisation of the arrangements requisite for the enforcement of the new Squatting regulations. The intentions ot the Governor are no ldnger a matter of mystery; even ain ordinary observer must be struck with the fact, that His Excellency feels certain that he will be allow ed to enforce the regulations of 2nd April, 1844, and that he is r.erely waiting to learn if any mo dification has been made in the regulations by the Home Govern ment. Even the Squatters have been called upon to lend their assistance towards the construction of .the machinery by which they are to be taxed-the various com missioners having intimated to the fquatters that they must give in exact descriptions of their runs, with the artras in square miles or Adres....
CORRESPONDENCE. (To the Editor of the Geelong Advertiser and Squatter's Advocate.) [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 June 1845
COR? B~EPONDENC E E. (To the Editor of the Geelong Adverliser and Squatter's Aacocate.) Sta.-Itrtffotds me pleasure to see so able an advocate as yourself, stepping forward in defence of the squatters. I know very well that you have been, from the first, the unflinching advocate of their rights, as well as those ofothers., butit is only of late I have observed you to come out in so determined a manner in their behalf. Nothing pleases me better than seeing a man shew his colors. When he does this one is able to know which side he belongs to-to the weak side or the strong, the right side or the wrong: Besides, when he finds he has engaged its a BAD cause, a man has reason to be ashamed of it; buthe, on the other hand, who espouses a GOOD one, has no reason whatever to be ashamed of wearing a good bold front when he stands forward to defend its interests. This Squatting qaestioh whitih is at present being agitated here, in Sydney, and, doubtless, also in England, seems to me to be one ...
PEEL AND THE POPE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 June 1845
PEBL AND THE POPE. It is currently reported, and very generally believed, notwithstanding Lord IHe3ytesbury's formal disavowal of the imputation, that a negdoiation is now in progress on` the part of Sir Robert Peel for a '"concordat," or politico-ecclesiastiealtreaty with the Ronjish see. This important and de licate affair is said to be conducted in Rome by the Hon. Mr Potre, a member of a well-kinown English Roman Catholic fainiily, with the aid of the Austrian ambassadors and other diplomiatists. True, indeed, it is that Mr Petre is not, and cannot be, an officially recognised orpublicly accre(lited agent of- the English go vernment in this business (for thiat would involve his eniployers in a violation of the. laws passed in the days` of .E lizabeth), but tliere is little reason, to doubt that the hon. gentleman has secret instructions as "a feeler" of the cautious premier; and were his private-correspondence intercepted and oxainined, the highest functionaries of the state mig...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 June 1845
In a previous number we made complaint of the dilatoriness of the counsel employed to give his opinion on the legality of taxing the squat ters; we have now to make a simi lar complaint against the attorney employed in the same matter. 'I hat gentleman hashad the opinion in his possession for several days, and has taken no step that we can bear of to deliver the same to his constit cents. He may have some reiason for this conduct, brat we cannot conceive what that reason can be. If secresy be his object, how is that he makes no scruple of showing the opinion to certain individuals? We do not say that he ought to publish it through the medium of the press; in facthe has no right todoso; but he certainly ought to take steps for laying it before the committee of his employers. The consequences of this delay may be highly injurious. Payments are daily made into the District Treasury, which, itf the opinion is worth anything, might be saved to the ratepayers. The squattershave deferred m...
