MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 18 April 1842

MISCELLANEA. Th4e NYgro and the CheAses.-The Boston Pilot says'that tp at the west end of that city there is a good natured, fun-making negro, named Parsis, who hovers round their grocery stores in that neighbourhood rather more than is desi-able. Like many other gentle men of colour hIe prides hiunself upon the thickness of his akuel, and he is always up for a bet upon his butting powersi and well he may he, for his head is hard enough for a battering ram. The other day he made a bet in a store that he could butt in the head ofa flour barrel, arid he succeeded. He then took tip a bet to drive it through a very large cheese, which was to be co vered with a grass cloth, to keep his wool clear of chense crumbs. The cheese, thus enveloped, was placed in a proper position, and Parsis, starting off like a locomotive, buried his head up to liis'ears in the inviting target. Parsia now began to feel himself irresis. tible, and talked up " purty consider able." A plan, however, was soon con....

The alarm was immediately given, and the 'eaptains and crews of the Wnodbridge and the Marynnn, proceeded on board of her, and rendered every assistance. The smoke issuing from the hold had, by this time, considerably increased, so much so. that it attracted the notice of the harbour mister from the shore. He promptly went on board, and took charge of the vessel. He first brought her in to the eastern side of the cove, close to the rocks where the prisoners' stockade is erected, in order to sink hier, but the ciptains and officers of 1I.M. ships Favorite and Beagle having arrived by this Pime, with the crews of their respective ships, it was deemed preferable to remove her to the north shore.

ON THE TREATMENT OF SHEEP WITH A VIEW TO THE IMPROVEMENT OF THE FLEECE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 25 April 1842

ON T-IE TREATMENT OF SHEEP vWIH A VIEW TO THE IMPROVE ,IENT OF TIlE FLEECE. By Met. JAMES DICKsoN, Edinburgh. 6. Best mode of Clipping the Wool off Sheep. -- Wool must be ripe and ready to part from the skin before it should be taken off; nature thus pre paring it for the hands of the shearer. The natural symptom of shedding the wool depends much on the feeding; some high fed sheep will he ready for clipping in "March or April, whilst others not well fed,; will not be ready till Junoe. The mode of clipping sheep was performed in a very awkward and clumsy way in the Border counties, till'within the last sixty years. The new and much approved system was introducedI into Northumnberland by the late Messrs Culleys of Akeld and WVark, who were also the first to in. troduce the improved breed of Leices ters into that county. 'The old mode consisted in tying the feet of the sheep and laying them together on a stool, and clipping almost at random, in a longitudinal direction, making very ro...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 25 April 1842

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. The decision of the jury in the trial of the case ' Tetley v. Sherwin' has given great satisfaction to the commercial woi Id, although little doubt can -xist as to its illegulity. In consequence of the long drought the River Derwent has become lordable ,n a great many additional places. The drought throughout Van Diemen's Land is said to be quite unparalleled in the history of the colony. The police magistrate of Launceston. Mr Breton, has started on an exploratory expedition to the Oakden caverns and the country beyond. A teetotal society has been formed at Launceston, and a considerable amount of newspaper discussion on the merits of the system has taken place. Port Cygnet.- We have learned that a large quantity of land has been mrasured for sale at this place, some of which to our own knowledge is first rate land, abounding in timber of the finest description.

CONGRATULATORY ADDRESS TO THE QUEEN. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 25 April 1842

CONGRATULATORY ADDRESS TO THE QUEEN. The birth of the infant Prince of Wales has called forth demonstrations of the loyalty and attachment of Htier Majesty's subjects throughout the different divi. sions of her empire, with a degree of unanimity and good.will that is rarely equalled. That the inhabitants of this district are as devoted in their loyalty as any of their fellow-subjects we have every reason to believe; and as this district has attained a separate rank (or at least is desirous and worthy of such,) we Would be wanting in duty to our sovereign if we suppressed our feelings, and deficient in public spirit if we merely followed ints the wake of a neigh. bouring district. It is therefore satisfactory to learn that a Congratulatory Address from the inhabitants of Geelong has been pre pared, and will be open for signature at Mr Mack's Hotel, although we have not been able to procure a copy of it in time for ipublication in this morning's papPr. We need not add, that every re.,...

(ADVERTISEMENT.) TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 25 April 1842

(AD TERTISE MIENT.) TO TIlE EDITOR OF TIlE ADVERTISER. Sta,-You are no doubt aware that several occurrences havo recently at. tracted the attention of the police to Ashby village; but you. are perhaps not so well aware.of the fact that the constables are taking advantage of their liberty, to injure the characters of res pectable inhabitants against whom they may have a spite. An instance of this occurred last week, when a bushman was taken from a private house,('1t. Cramp's, where he had been visiting,) on a charge of drunkenness-a charge which ens not substantiated, when brought before the bench. I would not however, have troubled you with this communication had it not been for the assertion of one of the constables that there were " glasses on the table," a statement which was totally falsea, and calculated to do considerable injury I hope the constables will take warning. and learn to perlorm their duty without overstepping it. I am, &c. A IOUSEHOLDER AT AsiBnY.
