MR GLADSTONE, SECRETARY FOR THE COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 29 April 1846

1MR1 GL'ADSTONE, SECRETARY FO TIHE COLONIES. The rapid succession of changes (detailed •in another column) which took place be :ttween the 10thl. and 2-eth December, com 'mencing with the resignation of Sir'Robert "Peel, and his colleagues, and ending with their return (with the solitary exception of Lord Stanley) to power, must have created "intense interest among all parties and classes. 'The appointment of Alr Gladstone to the office ,vacated by Lord Stanley. is, however, the :event .of most absorbing interest to us inhabitants of the antipodes. The mere exchange of one autocrat for -another may. iot by some be considered as an ntattor'ofinuch choice; but it is precisely -on accountaof the immense power and in 'fience'vested'in the hands of the colonial minister, that we look upon a hanige in the jndividial who wields that power, as an event fraught with either weal or woe to .the millions of human beings subjected to his sway.-. Wc admit; indeed, that the •effects of such a chan...

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

THE WOOL MARKE'. From the Mark Lane Express. The 'market is quiet, and no move-, ment is expected until theJanuary-sAles. We are ever glad to see party' feeling laid aside by the persons who are most intimately connected with our manufac turing industry. A firm in tiheCity in forms us 'that " The accounts from the manufacturing districts show rather less activity than for some months past, but this arises in a great measure from the unfounded statements put-forth as to the scarcity of food, and the derangement in 'credit caused "by gambling in shares, &c.ifor we hear of no accumulation of stocks on' hand, and the wholesale drapers in this cityvare doing more business tlinat 'ihe same period last yaar. " From the United States of America, by the last packet,'we heve letters to the 16th nlt., which state'tfiai the fiill trade had been exceedingly good 'for Br;tish manufactures, for ' which ' remunerating prices lihadbeen paid, in consequence of the farmers having realised good...

LORD STANLEY IN THE COMMONS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 29 April 1846

LORD STANLEY IN THE COMMONS. (From " Fraser's Macazine")" After sitting with folded arms, his legs extending to their full length, the heels resting on the speaker's table, his hat slouched over his face as it were moodily, he would suddenly start up and present himself to the House to speak. A rough, somewhat slovenly and ungraceful exterior and style of dress, features hard. with lines strongly marked, and a frowning, almost scowling expression, these did not at first prepossess you: but another glance re mindedjyou how high, broad, and full of in tellect was the forehead, and how keenly piercing was the eye. The mouth, too, told its clear outline, its firmly compressed lips, and the lines drawn around it, how often and-how successfully it had been made the ally of thought; how often it had helped in the expression of sarcasm, that passion of the intellect. You were in stantly struck with the consciousness of mental power displayed in the countenance, and with a marked simplicity ...

OUR NEW GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 29 April 1846

OUR NEW GOVERNOR. Sir Charles and Lady Mary Fitzroy are reported to have arrived in London on the 4th December. On the6Gth Sir Charles had an interview with Lord Stanley. The re. signation of the Peel Ministry immediately followed, and on its subsequent reconstruc tion the name of Mr Gladstone was substi for that of Lord Stanley. The detention of Sir Charles Fitzroy would be the inevitable consequence of these changes, but notwith staniding. the probability is, that he is now on his way to these shores. We think it also very likely that lie will visit .Port Phillip on his wny 4o Sydney, whether he come by the Cape of Good Hope or by the Red Sea route.

LATE INDIAN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 29 April 1846

LATE INDIAN NEWS. From the Australian. THE Bombay Times a short time ago had i report of the redoubtable Mere Shere Mahomed having reappeared in arms on the frontiers of Scinde. Our contemporary now, on the authority of the advices from H-ydrabad, says that the report has proved correct, that Chief having placed himselfat the' head of ten thousand Moultanees with the intention of invading our territories. It is probably this anticipated irruption that has caused tie sudden call for troops in Scinde, and the hurrying northward of the force already in the country. This Shere Mahornmed is the chief who com manded the Beloochees at Dublia, alid who on the defeat of his army, fled to the desert, where Sir Charles Napier could not catch him. We trust that the gallant Napier wll at length be enabled to give a good account of his slippery enemy. There is an old saying that " threatened folks live long,"-Sir Charles nearly three years ago wrote to Shere Mahomned, tliat before a fortnight pas...

BORNEO AND ITS PIRATES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 29 April 1846

BORNEO AND ITS PIRATES. From the Australian. On an island or islet, near the great island of Borneo, visited by pirates, but lately driven away by the British (as our readers are aware, from a nar rative lately published in this journal), certain British subjects whencesoever they came, have, it seems, established themselves, and, if our impressions be right, under the sanction, if not with the aid, of a British man-of war. The little island, or cape, whatever it be, was ceded to them by a Rajah of Borneo, as a protection to him from the Pirates. So far, so good. But Holland, hearing it, objects to fo reigners settling there, claiming, as she does, Borneo and all its islets. The London Mail makes the follow ing remarks on this part of the story : " We have heard much lately, of a settlement of British subjects formed on' the coast of Borneo, where, upon the strength of a concession of terri tory obtained from a native Rajah, they have commenced extensive mining operations, which are...

THE STATE AND PROSPECTS OF VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 29 April 1846

THE STATE AND PROSPECT;S OF VAN DIEMlEN'S LAND., (From the Spectator.) The Customs' revenues for the month last past exhibit an increase of £1263, as compared with the same receipts in March, 184F5. There is, therefore, at present an increase on the first quarter of the present year of £2688 on the re ceipts of the corresponding quarter of 1815. An opposition journal, whose melodious strains are no longer those of " the living lyre," attributed this in crease, with his usual sagacity of " ob servation," to " escape of spirits." We fear the only " spirits" whose "esdape" could be proved by our "squasahed" con temporary to have contributed to this beneficial effect, is the evil spirit of dis cord and agitation, of whose evapora tion his own " Last Dying Speech and Confession" is so favourable a symptom. The' interests'of the cotmitiuiity demand a cessation of all vain and unprofitable agitation, the:oblivion of all personalities, and the sacrifice of private motives by the influential...

(To the Editor of thu hllkogkong Register.)

This is said to be one of. the principal matnufacturing towns of the nation. The people do tint seem to have a definite idea of its nuti bers, as we do of large towns in Christen dom, but generally conjecture its num bers to be :over one hundred thousand; The cout,,on:.the way up is verylevel.; principally cultivated in rice fields, which are very extensive.

An Appeal on behalf of the Aborigines. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 2 May 1846

An Appeal on behalf of the Aborigines. FIRMLY believing the truth of that declaration made in holy wvrit-" that God hath made of one blood all nations that reign on the earth" - we conceive that in conse quence of that common origin, man, wherever he may be found, whatever may be his colour, how much soever debased may be his condition, has a right to demand the sympathy and as sistance of his fellow man ; and ltie greater his moral degradation the stronger his claim upon his more ex alted and privileged brother. It is on this ground that we put forth the following appeal on behalf of the Aborigines of this Colony ; and in doing this we would call upon the public in general and all denomina tions of Christians in particular, to combine their efforts to bring the poor wandering and degraded Aboriginal tribes of Australia Felix under a course of religious instruction, that they may be taught to read the Holy Scriptures which are able to make them wise unto salvation. That they5are cap...

MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 2 May 1846

M ISCELLANEA. An experiment of the highest interest has been performed at the Chateau de Villetaneuse, near St Denis. " M. S. and his;son had for some time past announced publicly that they had succeeded in the means of. directing balloons in the air; and several experiments on a small scale in the court-yard of the Ecole Militaire, in Paris, had been attended with satisfac. tory, results.

THE IMPRoVING TIMES. -We think we s'hall be" forced to devote a-column or two weekly to articles iunder this head. We have again the pleasure to publish an illustration of the re-action that has taken place. The total re ceipts for customs in the month of March' 1845' amounted to £5020 4s.; this year they reach £6292 6s;, being an increase in one month of £1293 2s. The increase for the quarter ending 31st March ultimo, as compared with the corresponding quarter of last year, is £2685. Taking the amount in round numbers at £2500, it will give £10,000 upon the year which (upon the presump tion that the increase will apply to the re maining months in the year, and which there is not the slightest reason to doubt) will raise the probable receipts in the Customs' department alone to up. wards of 74,000 per annum.

MULTUM IN PARVO. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 2 May 1846

MULTUM IN PARIVO. The Aigsburg Gazette confirms the ru mour of the speedy publication of.an ency clical letter by the Pope, addressed to the German Clergy on the subject of the new reformation in that country. The Sardinia Government has prohibited the exportation of chesnuts, on pain of three months' imprisonment, and 800 f. fine'lor eachlviolation of the order. The " Not Testimonial"' Committee at Calcutta have given orders to Mr Blrig stocke to paint a full-length portrait of the late lamented General Not for the sum of 200 guineas. An American scientific gentleman offers for thirty thousand dollars to sink an Artesian well in Boston (United States) to the depth of 1700 feet by which it is estima ted that more than a million of gallons of the very best water can be thrown into the city every day, and to a height at least of 100 feet above the surface of the earth.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 2 May 1846

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. The South Australian papers furnish' ns with many particulars respecting the progress of the Colony, which are of great importance. Discoveries of mine ral wealth have long followed each other with a bevildering rapidity; and the opening of a rich veinvof Virgin Gold, appears to have brought them to a climax. Considerable excitement has all along prevailed, but now, the lid is taken of the pot, and the Adelaideans are fairly boiling over. The history of the discovery is as fol!ows : we quote from the ltegister,- On the 7th of February last, Mr Fre. deric Wiceksteed paid into the Colonial Treasury seven hundred and ninety-nine pounds sterling, for a section of land in the county of Adelaide, numbered 5597, containing one hundred and forty-seven acres, purchased by him from the Govern ment at pnblic anctioti, and received the usual `grant. , ,' The section so purchased was officially advertised as containing valuable mine rals ; and this very 'large sum was paid for i...
