PUBLIC WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 25 April 1842

PUBLIC WORKS. The masonry of the New Court House will be completed in a few days, and we naturally look forward with some degree of interest to the next step which government may take in advancing the. progress of other public works, which are of still more urgent importance, and for which adequate funds have been provided by the Legislature. When the Court-house is completed there will be no contract work whatever in progress in the township, unless the Government speedily bestir themselves. The Custom-house will no doubt be. the next building for which tenders will be required, and there certainly could not be a better time than the present for the govern ment to enter into an advantageous contract ; if any delay takes place many of the hands employed on the Court-house will leave the town, labour will get scarce, and tenders will have to be accepted at high figures.- We are by no means anxious for the erection of splendid public buildings. We. have looked with the greatest indiff...

REPRESENTATIVE ASSEMBLY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 25 April 1842

REPRESENTATIVE ASSEMBLY. The Petition Commit:e at Sydney are proceeding with ti ir labhours (,r rather, aerial castle.build ng) reap c'ing the arrangements and' details of the projected measure for the introduction. of the representative system of govern. ment into New South Wales, such as fising the number and apportionment of the members-the division of the colony into electoral districts-drawing the line of demarcation between electors and non-electors,-and other similar matters. The committee, the press, and the public, are of course fully oc. copied with the discussion of these weighty affairs. We, however, attach very little importance to their labour, and, so far as this part of the colony is concerned, we care very little what decision they come to. It is to le hoped that the fetters of Australia Felix will be knocked off at a period sufficiently early to justify us in our present indifference.

GOVERNOR-GENERAL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 25 April 1842

GOVERNOR-GENERA1.. The following paragraph from the Cornwall Chronicle is going the rounds of the papers. It is merely the reitera? tion of a rumour that has been set afloat a dozen times during the last twelve months, and which has never yet re. ceived the slightest confirmation. Fia GEORGE ARTHUR. - We are fa. voured wilth a communication from: England from a member of Parliament, who states that the appointment of aL Governor.General for these Colonies ii all but d termined upon, and thai, should the berth be made. Sir George Arthur will have it offered to him. We learn, Ikewise that Sir George Arthur has signified his willingness to accept the appoin'ment, and that his head. quarters will be Hobart Town. It is more than probable, that should such an arrangement be carried out, the Governor - General would reside ant equal portion of the year:in Hobart Town and Launceston.-Cornwall Chro. nicle.

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 25 April 1842

CHINA. AMOY.- Latest date, Nov. 6. The Chinese authorities a short time since collected about 200. war.boats and fire. rafts, preparatory to an attack on H. M. ship Druid ; but with the kindest con sideration, they previously sent a friendly message to Captain Smith re questing, advising, or ordering, him to move Her Majesty's ship out of the waters of Amoy; and if he reverently obeyed the orders, they-the Chinese would in their tender and compassionate consideration allow H. M. ship to pass out unmolested ; it is said that to this friendly message Captain Smith returned as friendlly an answer, to the effect that he had no time to move H. M. ship; but that if they did not move and immediat,.ly disperse- his Imperial Ma jesty's flotilla, he,', would forthwith undertake that charge himself, to its utter destruction. The Chinese, with much more complaisance than Captain Smith evinced, immediately followed that officer's friendly advice, and the fl6tilla has been no more heard of.

ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 25 April 1842

ENGLAND. A subscription was set on foot in the city of London to relieve the general distress. It has been proposed in the city to promote immigration on a very large scale, in order to dispose of the overfilswing population who are starving. The gun calls it a scheme for transport ing people on a large scale. A hundred persons at Nottingham had agreed to start in the spring for the Texas, which is highly spoketn of. Captain Elliott was appointed consul to that republic. An alarming fire occurred at the Woolwich Dockyard o- the 2?0h of November, supposed to be the work of an incendiary. An attempt was also made -to set fire to the Horse Guards. The opinion is now afloat that all the recent conflagrations of public buildings have been the works of incendiaries. The weather was extremely severe. On the night of the 16th N,.vember the mercury fell sixteen degrees below the freezing point. Beaumont Smith the clerk ofthe Ex chequer Bill Office, is to be admitted as an a,,prover; and it i...

WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 25 April 1842

WOOL. The following is an extract from 1essrs. Southey -& Son's November Cirrular : The fourth spriles of public sales of Colonial Wool this ,season, commenced oin the 4th, and coi~cluded on the 12th Inbtant. We feel much satisfac.ion in being enabled to state that the attendance of buyers on this occasion was as numerous as usual; and although an opinion pre. vailed, previous to the Lommencement of the sales, that August prices wound barely be supported, we have great pleasure in adding, the hidding through out the sales, was very spirited, and last sales' prices fully maintained. We are much pleased to observe an improvement in the condition of several Australian flocks, indeed some of them approached perfection as regards wash ing, which encourages us to hope and 'xpect, whenever an augmentation of labourers in the colonies takes place. that the colonial wools will equal in condition those of foreign countries. A large portion of the wools from Port Phillip realised satis...

MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 2 May 1842

MISCELLANEA. JAvA -TeA.-Letters from Amsterdam mention a very large sale at Rotterdam ofJava tea, of which about 3000 chests were sold for about the same pire as the China leaf. Forme'rly very small quantities of this article were soldjat a time, and as was supposed more as a matter of curiosity than for actual use. Now, some of the best judges of tea in Holland have been heard to remark that they consider the Java tea equal to, if not better than that of China, with the advantage that it will ba found impost sible to mix inferior with superior sorts. A COLOURED JUDGI.-Mr Alhill, a gentleman of African desn'ent,ghas been appointed chief baron of the exchequer in the island of Antigua.

THE CORPORATION QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 2 May 1842

TIHE CORPORATION QUESTION. The Patriot,'in calling attention to the Municipal Corporation Bill, attempts to demonstrate the inexpediency of mnaking the act a general one, and de signates the attempt to frame such a measure as n " grievous mistake." This' opinion is supported by the won. derful discovery that Sydney is built on the shores of the bay " into which the Parrnmatta river empties itself,' while Melbourne actually stands on the banks of. the Yprria Yarra : how then can a universial system of legislation be pos. Aible ? You might as well expect the Zenith to kiss the Nadir ! "A more judicious plan," says the Patriot, " would be to pass a short law nuthorlising the Governor, with the ad vice of the Executive Council. to issue charters, under the great seal of the coloiy, for'the institution of Municipal corporations, such charters conferring the same powers as are conferred by the present general act, but adapted to the peculiar circumstances of the parti. cular-towns for whi...

SWAN RIVER. AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY'S REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 2 May 1842

SWAN RIVER. AGRICUILTUIRAL SOCIETY'S REPORT. We have the honor to present to your Excellency our tenth Annual Re port, at the close of. orre.of the finest seasons for agricultural pursuits the colonists have experienced. ' The crops of grain are beyond tlie ordinary aver age, and hay unusually abundant. The rains have continued to the present time', and grays is therefore still green and plentiful, and stock in consequence is.generally in" fine condition. The knowledge we have attained, from the experience of twelve'years, of our ad mirable climate seems to warranit an almost implicit reliance on the regular succession of favourable seasons. This :cheering ,prDspect, however, continues damped by a painful feeling that the absence of a sufelicient supply of labour sill not enable us to avail ourselves of the resources of the colony.

THEATRICALS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 2 May 1842

TH EATH ICALS. The Colonial Observer has opened war upon the Sydney theatres, contending that the encouragement which they receive is a strong proof of the depravity of the Australian population. The Chronicle has taken up the gauntlet, and accuses the Observer of confounding the use of the theatre with its abuse, and contending that, as the people wILL have amusement, more good may be done by directing the current than by stem ming the torrent. Both the combatants are in our opinion right. The theatre ought to be a school for virtue, but it is not. As at present conducted it produ.ces more evil than good, and therefore ought to be either remodelled or discountenanced; the question then is, what means are the most likely to be successful in bringing about one or other of these ends ? There is not a better established fact in the history of mankind, than, that all kinds of furce are unavailing in suppressing the opinions bf opponents, and that even a bad cause will gain superiority b...
