NAVIGATION OF THE INDUS. A LETTER TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF CONTROL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 2 May 1842
NAVIGATION OF THE INDUS. A LETTER TO TUE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF CONTROL. Sir,- From your influential station, presiding over such a comprehensive branch of British commerce and revenue, I cannot suppose you will feel indifferent to a suhbject of such vast importance as the navigatien of the river Indus, open ing as it does a new and extensive field for British trade, involving the tranquil ization of our lately acquired territories in the East, and the improvement of the revenues of the Indian government. I therefore take the liberty of addressing you publicly on such important topics, impelled as well by my duty to my country, as an ardent dcsrio for the welfare and peace of the misguided and artless tribes who are denizens of our new possessions. The long anticipated opening of this river offering a navigable communica tion by numerous channels into the heart of Central As;a, and a wide mar ket for our manufactures has not yet been availed of either by the mercantile com munity...

ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 2 May 1842
EINGLAND. parliament is summoned to meet on the 3rd of February. The ceremony of churching the queen wna performed in the chapel-royal of St. James's. The baptism of the infant prince is not expected to take place until after the meetutg of parliament in February. It is understood to be the intention of the King of Prussin to visit England, on tha occasion of the baptism of the Prince of Wales. The report th1 t n number of convicts would be pardoj ed by the queen is quite unfounded, thre being no precedent for such a step. The Queen Dowager'shealth is rapidly improving. Her cheerfulness has never left her, and has been her physician's best aid. The Globe reports that Sir George b.nrray will replace Lord Hill as Com_ rmanadei-in-chief ; that Lord Fitzroy Som erset will be commander-in-chief in Ireland ; that Sir Henry Hardinge is to Ip Master-general of the Ordnance; and th it Mr Berries will be Secretary-at wa r.

MUNICIPAL CORPORATIONS. Thei'followinig is the Melbourne Peti. tion foraiMunicipal Corporation. There is one part of it to which we most de cidedly;object,. namely, the offer to re. lease government from local expendi ture. We are likely enough to be thrown upon our own resources,-with out begging it as a favor. The want of available funds or vested property is likely to be the greatest obstacle in the way of the infant municipalities, so that the petitioners, if they had no remedy to propose, ought at least to have main. tained silence. ro His, Excellency Sir George Gipps, Knight, Captain-General and Gover nor-ti.Chief of New South Wales and its Dependencies, and President to the Honorable the members of the Legislative Council, in Council as sembled: The humble Petition of the under, signed Inhabitants of the Southern .District of New South Wales, StrnaWTlr, - Fhat your petitioners, 'understanding that a Bill for the estab. lishment of Municipal Corporations is before 'the Council...

MIDDLE DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 2 May 1842
MIDDLE DISTRICT. The overland mail did not reach Yass in time to be forwarded to Melbourne. so that we have not receivedour usual file of papers. The Yass and Sydney mail, however, being twice a.week, a few straggling papers of the 11th, 121h, and 13th April have reached this pro vince, but we believe their columns are entirely occupied with long accounts of the display of Sir Richard Bourke's statue. The following is the inscription upon its pedestal. " This statue of Lieutenant.General Sir Richard Bourke, K.C.B. is erected by the people of New South Wales, to record his able, honest, and benevolent administration from 1831 to 1837. Selected for the government at a period of singular difficulty, his judgment, urbanity, and firmness, justified the choice. Comprehending at once the vast resources peculiar to this colony, he applied them, for the first time, syste m atically for its benefit. He voluntarily divested himselfof the prodigious influ ence arising from the assignment of pen...

MISCELLANEA. Esparterois a son of a village joiner, of Carrantual, in the province of La Mancha. Hie was born in 1793, and is therefore now 49 years of age. He went to South America in the service of Ferdinand the Seventh and remain ed there until 1824, when he returned home with a fortune of £80,O01), said to be chiefly the produce of wonder. fully successful gambling. The military revolution of 1836 brought him further forward. He was ultimately appointed commander-in.chief. He was soon af. terwards created Count Lochana ; and, in 1839, he received the title of Duke of Victory, that term being said to be his own choice. In the beginning of last year he was nominated Regent, which influential and vice-regal position he now holds. The Lords of the Admiralty are ma king their usual tour of inspection over the dock yards and naval arsenals. A survey has also been held on the ships laid up in ordinary, in order to see what vessels could be brought for ward on an emergency, if required....

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE COURT-HOUSE-The exterior of this fine building is now completed, and we have no hesitation in saying that it is superior in agricultural beauty to any building in Melbourne, and would be considered a superior building in any European capital. The greatest credit is due to the contractor (Mr Beaver) for the superior manner in which the work has been completed ; and it is but justice to the overseer (Mr M'Cann) and the other workmen employed, to state, that we have never seen any building erected in such a satisfactory and work. manlike manner. Corio promises soon to become a second " Modern Athens." MAIL FOR LONDON.-The first mail from this port for London direct, will be made up on Thursday morning at 9 o'clock, as the Nerio will sail on that day.

SUB-MARINE EXPLOSIONS IN BASS'S STRAITS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 9 May 1842
bUB-MARINE EXPLOSIONS IN BASS'S STI'RAII'S. From the Launceston Advertiser. I believe the surveying ship Beagle is, or may shortly be expected again to be engaged among the numerous islands along our no thern coast, antd it may not be ill-timed to draw attentionl to what the sealers in that neighbourhood call the "Cape Barren Guns." These are explosions which I have myself dis tinctly heard..oi the beach at Cape Portland, and which (when loud and Iriqut.nt) are said to prolend foul weather. On these occasions bituminou matter is found floating in the vicinity of Cape Barren, Preservation, Flindera, Gun.carriage, and the smaller islands ol that group-which circumstance, taken in conjun'.tirn with their volcanic aspect (Cape Barren in particular), I submit presenlts all interestiug held of enquiry. on a recent occasionl I .endeavoured to obtain somte of this bl'uminous matter, but could only find inl the hands of the sealers what had been mixed with grease or pitch, as they were in th...
EMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 9 May 1842
EMIGRATION. (Prom the Launceston Cuurier.) The subject of Emigration to the Australasian Colonies has become one of general discussion, amongst the London papers. The Globe, the Spec tator, and the Colonial Gazette, have entered upon a controversy, from which it m'ay be surmised, that Govern mert contemplated the introduction of anr extensive scheme of emigration framed under the super ntendence of of the everlasting Mr. Edward Gibbon Wakefield. Of the details of the con templated system, which would appear to possess something of novelty, it is diflicult to gather much information, inor can we discover the authority front which the conclusion has been drawn, sht 'the Government intend to inter fere in the matter. We find however, in the London papers, numerous alli sloins to the sihbject, couched in terms of confide ce, which bespeaks the pos session of some official information. The sys'em it appears, is of the pure Wakefield breed, ard as such meets with unqualified support from ...

SPAIN. The British Government had officially made known to the government of the Regent of Spain I. That Great Britain, 'not only would not suffer an armed intervention in Spain, but that die 'would not even permit any considerable military force to be concentrated along the Pyrenean frontier. 2. That she would not oppose any arrangement for the marriage of Queen Isabella II., provided her husband should not be a French rrince. 3. That Great Britain was deter-. mined to take no part in any European Congress, convoked for the adjustment of the Spanish question,. and that if such an assembly should be held with out her co-operation, she would oppose the enforcement of all coercive mea sures, and of all other resolutions of such Congress, wh ch should tend di rectly or indirectly 'to interfere with the rights and dignity'of Spain as a free and independent nation.

ENGLAND. The Russians have again been sig nally deleated in Circassia. We are glad to learn, that AMr. John Marshall is about to resitne his active exertions in the cause of emigration, he having, within these few days, we understand, given instructions to all his provincial connexions to be pre pared for the opening season.-Emi gration Gasette. Orders have been received in Ports mouth dockyard, to get twelve ships ready. for sea immediately, four of them to be of fifty guns each. A number of additional workmen have been taken on. The plan of the Minlitry for the fu anre regulation of the import of foreign corn has at length been suffered to transpire ;. and, it is supposed to have received the sanction of the leaders of the agricultural party, we may presume it will be adopted by them when the parliament assembles.
