AUXILIARY BIBLE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 25 April 1846

AUXILIARY BIBLE SOCIETY. A Meeting of the Geelong Branch Bible Society, in connexion with the Aleibourne Auxiliary Bible Society, was held yesterday for the purpose of taking ,into consideration the propriety of con stituting an Auxiliary Society. When, after considerable discussion on the various advantages of such a step, the following resolutions were unanimously adopted, viz. 1. That the present Branch Society be dissolved, in the view of having an Auxiliary Society organised, in direct connexion with the British and Foreign Bible Society, in London. 2. That thse Treasurer close accounts with the Melbourne Committee and report accordingly. 3.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 25 April 1846

We beg to direct particular attention *to a very sensible letter in our first page, -urging upon the public attention the ad vantages derivable from the formation of a Provident Institution, on acomprehen sive basis. It is a matter of reproach to the inhabitants of Geelong that, although in all respects their town is the centre.of a wide-spread population, there exists in it no institution po-sessing in the least degree a benevolent or provident charac ter; and the consequence is, that much waste and dissipation, which might otherwise be prevented, prevails. It as true, that some twelve months ago, there were six gentlemen appointed by the Government as Tmustees of a Branch Savings' Bank ; but from some cause, of the nature of which we are not aware, no overt steps have been taken to bring the branch into beneficial operation. Whether ,the Trustees are blameable or not for tihis posture of affairs, we must say that -it is at all events incumbent upon them 4to take some public steps ...

SMALL FARMS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 25 April 1846

SMALL FARMts.--R r Hoddle proceeds in a few days to Port Fairy, to lay out seven or eight thousand acres of nrime land, it, small farms, which will be dis posed of at public auction. This is a just course, there being a numerous class who would wish to set themselves down as small -farmers, and upon their own lands establish ann independence for their children. This class of yeomanry are a Jar more valuable dody of men than the mere tenant, in many cases serf, of the large landed proprietor.-Patriot. MR A. -1I. HART' CASE.-The case of Messrs. Watson and Wight against Mr Asher Hymen Hart, remanded since Monday, was dismissed yester day in consequence of the Magistrates being of opinion that they had no ju risdiction in the case. All Messrs.

AIR CHURN. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 29 April 1846

AIR CvnuRN.-The Bishop of Derry has invested an atmospheric churn. In .stead df the present- t{ispientific mode of making butter by churning, his Lordship accomplishes this measure by the simpler manner of forcing a full current of atmos pheric air through the cream, by means of an exceedingly well devised forcing pump. The air passes through a glass tube connected with the air-pump, des cending nearly to the bottom of the churn. The churn is of tin, and it fits into another tin cylinder provided with a funnel and stop-cock, so as to heat the cream to the necessary temperature. The pump is worked by means of a winch, which is not so laborious as the usual churn. Independently of the happy ap plication of science to this important de partment of domestic economy, in a prac tical point of view it is extremely valu able. The milk is not moved by a dasher, as in the common churn ; but the oxygen of the atmosphere is brought into close contact with the cream, so as to effect a full combi...

THE WICKEDNESS OF WANT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 29 April 1846

THE WICKEDNESS OF WANT. [From Punch.] When we see ladies and gentlemen driving about in their vehicles, fine al most as the carriage of the sun-when we see them clothed in the richest and the best-when we know that they have their own town palaces and their country palaces - when their sumptuous banquetings are trumpeted through the columns of the Morning Post-it is a matter of surprise and sorrow that none of the offenders are made to answer for their manifold transgressions against a multitude of their fellow-creatures. We cannot understand why they escape the police-court. And yet, we doubt not, -o strong are the prejudices of the world, so deep its reverence for the majesty of wealth, that were any Christian champion to call upon them to answer for their misdoings,-he, the aforesaid champion, would be -speedily consigned to the inspection of a couple of doctors, preparatory to his committal to a madhouse. Imagine the Duke of Many-stars charged be fore Mr Greenwood with superflui...

.VAN DIEMIEN'S LAND. The sitting of tl'e .Legislative Council is postponed from the 15th to the .22nd.

OREGON. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 29 April 1846

OREGoN.-The American journalists and orators have materi lly modified their tone in relation to Oregon. The news papers received by. last packet, swarm with projects for settling the difference with England, and with unauthenticated and contradictory rumours respecting the, views of public men' in regard to the controversy. What the American Go vernment intends to do,' or whether it has any plan, we do not conjecture; buit it is obvious that onie truth has dawned upon the minds of our American coiusins "Oregon is more accessible from Great Britain than from. the United States." From both countries,. the journey 'thither can be performed with less inconveniece by sea than by land. The British pos sessions in the Pacihc, and we' might even say in t0he Antilles, are more con 'venient peints of departure for operations upon Oregon than any inhabited territory of the Union. Time has forced these re :fletions upon the Yankees; adtl the bluster about appropriating Oregon by the. strong han...

THE AUSTRALIAN SQUATTERS. (From the Examiner, November 29.) [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 29 April 1846

THE A'USTRALIAN SQUATTERS. (From the Examiner, November ?9.) The transition from the pastoral to the agricultural state is certainly considered one of the great steps in human improvement; although men as pastors have been more able than when they forsook the fleece for the sickle. and the milk-pail for the plough. It is, therefore, not astonishing that there should be difference of opinion on the sub ject, and no marvel if the difference of opi nion should be manifest in the acts of-the Government itself. It would seem that Mr Goulburn and Sir Robert-Peel lean to the pastoral side of hu manity, whilst Lord Stanley, prone to differ, whether with foe or colleagus, in clines in the opposite direction. The co lonies, especially that of New South Wales, open facilities and temptations to both modes of life, and it is very easy for a go. vernment, by throwing slight advantage or discredit .upon either, to favour or retard its developement. Shepherds produce wool, farmers produce wheat By...

THE CORN MARKET REVIVAL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 29 April 1846

Tli-I CORN MARKET REVIVAL. From the Adelaide Observer. Our former anticipations with i.espoct to the British market as available to' South Australian corn growei'rs, are not only realised for the present, 'but'a' futiire prospect has been opened whiclih' oes not seem likely to disappoint them; in asmuch as the coirn iaw' ?restrictions 'of England are evidently "oin thllii last legs."

In Ireland where potatoes rather than corn have become " the-staff of life," the inroads: of the potato 'disease are so pal. pable and wide spread, that' it is con sidtied the available croii; besides leilng of bad quality, will not hbe` iiore than half an average one in quantity; and it w?as fully expected that the Port of Dub lin would consequently ie e the fir...
