CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 11 April 1842
CHINA. We have been favoured by Messrs tM. D. Hunter and Co. with a Canton paper of December Il, which, however, contains but little news of importance, no further intelligence of the northern squadron having been received. Trade was dull. but was being carried on at Canton with little interruption. On the 11th December, there were (exclusive of ships of wat) sixty.-one British, eleven American, one Bremen, one Peruvian, one French, and one Dutch ship in the Chinese waters. Preparations were being made for renewing the war next season with increased vigour, Major. General Lord Saltoun, was expected as second in command to Sir Hugh Gough, with a considerable reinforcement of the lantd forces, and a line.of-battle ship had arrived in Simon's Bay on her way to China.-Sydney Herald,
AN INGRATE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 11 April 1842
AN INGRATE.- A few months ago, a man named Patrick Reardon hired him self as a shepherd to Mr Wiselaskie. &nbsp; Before entering into that gentleman's service he continued drinking in Corio, and on his wvay up to the station he met with an accident by which his leg was broken. Mr. Wiselaskie thereupon &nbsp; humanely sent him to Dr Shaw's hos pital, and became answerable for all expenses that might be incurred during his illness. As soon as he got on his legs again, he abused his master and the doctor, and absconded from the hospital, declaring that he would not return to his service. His master, preferring to be at the loss of his money than to have such a vagabond on his station, procured a warrant for the apprehension of the runaway, with the view of getting the agreement cancelled by the magistrates, When the man was apprehended in the bush, he was in a most miserable con. dition, and it is not at all improbable that his death may be the ultimate result of his' u...

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 18 April 1842
TuE intellilgence from India is of the most important nature. The following digest of the news, from the Sydney Gazt(te, gives a much clearer idea of the posture of affairs,, than if we pub lished the. whole of the particulars ; we therefore copy it, in preference to any of the other accounts which we have eren. From the highly important Indian intelligence published in uhbs journal on Tllursday, and continued in this ulny's publication, our readers may per ceive that an insurrection has broken out in the country heyond the Indus inhabitgd by tihe fierce and warlike Alfghars tribes, whose capital, Cabaul is the key to'our possessions in Central Asia. To stay Ruisgian aggression. and commanud a legitimate influence over the Persian Councils, it was d.em ei1 advisable to depose, some lime ago, [)ost ndahomuned, the reigning .Sover etgn of Affghanisan, wise was justly suspected of favouring the ambitious designs of Russia, and to place on tile throne Shah Soujah, who is far from a flvo...
ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 18 April 1842
ENGLAND. SN'ews have bco n received from England by way of Hobart Town up to the 7th of December; but the only apparent topics of interest relate to the infant prince, titles, dresses, ceremonies, and all the other matters the d:iscussion of which constitutes modern loyalty. It is sufficient to say that the prince and his mother were thriving as well as could be expected. '1he peace of Europe appears to be more firmly established at the present moment than at any formnr period. No disturbing" cause being perceptible above-boarc. Appear. ance and reality, however, arenot inseparable companions. It was confidenlly rumoured that the Peel and Stanley cabinet are Icontemplating the organization of a completely new scheme of emi gration, on aa extensive scale, and in a systematic manner. The details however have not yet been made public. In America, the Yankee Canadian ruffians who iafest the british frontier . still continte their lawless machinations.

WHEN IS GEELONG TO BE DECLARED A FREE PORT? [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 18 April 1842
• WHEN IS GRELONG TO BE DE. CLARED A FREE PORT? tWe trust that the 'instalments' of our rigbts, which, as will be per. ceived from the pieceding article, -are now about to be paid to us, :,llI lead to a oomplete recognition nad settlement of our claims upon the atteetion of the government. We require that Geelong should be de hdared a free port in every particu lar; rand until that be done, the government need not expect any benefit to accrue from their milk-and water measures. Indeed the privi leges with which we have been in vested by the postmaster-general stand forth in rank contradiction to the other smothering laws by which our energies are repressed. The liberty lately given to ship-masters to bring their 'vessela into this har, hour upon condition that they them selves should proceed to the custom house at Melbourne, has turned out to be a miserable subterfuge for the purpose of avoiding the more straighttorward course of frankly and boldly performing an act of more substant...
