The ,lunicipal Corporation Bill is expected to be. the first measure that will engage the attention of the council; and we need not remind our fellow.citizens that 'ite?at interest in the que'stion is as 5strong, if not stronger than that of any .?dher community in Australia. The extraordinary growth of this township durting the last twelve months, and the undiminished activity which the in jlabitants coutinue to display, clearly predict its future importance. It there foue becomes a duty incumbent upon us, seriously to consider what steps should he taken at the present juncture for ascuring to ourselves and our suc cessors the inestimablo privilege of self-governmeont ; for we must bear in mind that there is no probability of the boon being granted, unless we make suoh a demonstration as shall show that we are not only desirous but worthy of having our ...

REPRESENTATIVE ASSEMBLY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 11 April 1842

REPIE SENrATIVE ASSEMBLY. B1y the following letter from Mr. Charles Buller, the parliamentary iagent for these colonies, it will be perceived that there is now every probability of the colony of New South Wales being speedily endowed with a representative government. We sincerely congratulate our neighbours of the Middle District on this good nests; but we have al ways contended that such a measure would have an injurious effect on the interests of this distant province. The representation of Australia Felix in a louse of Assembly at Sydney will be a piece of mere mockery. Indeed we do not know a gentleman in the province who would go on such an embassy or take part in the solemn farce. We are not so churlish, however, as to withhold, our; congratulations from our more fortunate neighbours: 12, Lower Grafton-.street, October 16, 1841. Gentlemen,-I write very briefly to inform yon that, in pursuance of the determination expressed by me in my last, I lost no time after the new Go vern...

MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 11 April 1842

MIISCELLANEA. The monks in Switzerland (Canton of Ar gan) are being dislodged by the military authorities, having received in many instanrces notice to quit in twenty-four hours; the con vents were to be sold; it was said that the nuns had taken all active though secret part in fomenting the late disturbances. Gentility is neither in birth, wealth, manner nor fashion, but in the mind. A high sense of holior, a determination itever to take a mean aditantage of another, an adherance to truth, delicacy and politeness towards those with whom we have dealings, are the essential rharacteristics of a gentleman. A Dr Beck flatters himself with Ihaving'dis covered a method of propelling ships uip and ilown'the most tapid rivers without the nid of wind, ateam or towage. According to thlt plan the ships are moved by tlhe: power of of the water alone with a degree of tapidity which may be increased or diminished, at pleasure.

SMALL FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 11 April 1842

,SMALL FARMS, The Circelar Head Company have issued the following proposals. with the view of encouraging the growth of a community of small farmers, graziers, and other agriculturists,'in the neigh. boarhood of their settlement. The scheme appears to be the best of its kind that has yet been published, and if any of our extensive land-owners would try a similar plan we have no doubt that they would equally benefit themselves and the public. The company propose to let cattle farms onthe Surry Hills on the following terms -Each farm to consist of not less than one square mile, which may be selected out of 50,000 acres. HWith each farm will be let ten cows and ten two-year old heifers or steers, to be paid for in cash or stock of equal value at the end of four years. The rent for the land and stock included will be 2s per acre, and the tenant will have the right to lay out the first three year's rent in fencing.

IMISCELL NEA. The New Dublin Corporation.- Of the 59 councillors and aldermen retur ned, 4L are Roman Catholics and 18 are Protestants.

VAN DIENIEN'S LAND.

His Excellency has also directed that the New Wharf on the north side of the harbour shall be proceeded in without delay, and the Bridge at Bridgewater will be commenced, when the necessary prelimiuaries can be arranged. Major Kelsall proceeded on Friday last to Tasman's Peninsula, in order to make the necessary arrangements for the con struction of a mill, which, it is hoped, will insure to the convicts a supply of wholesome unadulterated flour.

SWAN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 11 April 1842

SWAN RIVER. This season has been unusually aoist and windy, the forerunner, we suspect, of a heavy winter. The settlers who may be cultivating low lands, should be on their guard, for there is every in dication of a flood. Such an event is to be hailedas generally beneficial ; but the inexperienced should exercise great caution. " Coming events cast their shadows before.'.' At the time of our present wrtting, we are visited with continued rain, in the place of the dry scorching heat of summer. This has certainly been oue of the most extraor dinary seasons we have experienced ; and if confidence may be placed in the erepresentations of the natives. assimi lates to that of 1828. when Sir James Stirling and Mr Frazer first traversed this country. It was, we believe, in the month of February they found such verdant fields - and finely undulating plaint,: in the following year the flits wert4fllooded-an event which has not since then occurred.

PROGRESS OF DISCOVERY. GULF OF CARPENTAIIIA. VOYAGE OF TILE BEAGLE. « Passing over the every day occur rences of sailing along the southern and eastern shores of this vast conti nent, I at once arrive at the Gulf of Carpentaria, and six weeks of highly interesting employment. Exploring two hundred miles of its southern shore, numerous inlets were discovered, and rich tracks of well-watered country, besides two rivers. These were con sidered of sufflicient importance to bear the names of tbe Albert, and Flinders, the former in honour of his Royal High ness, and the latter as a just tribute to the memory of a man Australia and science owe so much 'to. " Albert River takes a S.
