SIR CHARLES FITZROY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 6 May 1846
SIR CIIARLES FITZROY. From the Colonial Gazette. "The first and most important business that will demand his attention is the great question of the Squat. On this subject we are not at present going to enter. The Times. with more spleen against ministers than friendship for the colony-or, on the most favourable construction, with more willingness to do New South IWales a good turn than knowledge of the controversy has been zealously braying this week as if new light had just been thrown on the case of the squatters. The whole contents of the Gazette of Sir GeJrge Gipps, about which it makes such an outcry, were, with the exception of one unimportant letter, printed by order of the Houseof Commons early last session. Important papers on the subject, of six months' later date, were printed and published before the House rose. The Waste lands Australia Bills have advanced the controversy into a new stage -placed parties in new positions. The ar ticle of the Times to which we allude wou...
MELBOURNE. REFRACTORY SEAMEN. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 6 May 1846
MELBOUR NE. REFRcrTORa S-naMc'.-Two seamen be longing to the schooner Titania were brought before the district bench, on Satur day, charged with refusing duty on board that vessel. The defence set up by the men was, that they were'not supplied with proper provisions ; they had bargained for a pound of bread per diem, in lieu of which they had been supplied with a pound of maggots. Simpson, with a view of sub stantiating his assertion produced from his breeches pocket, a sample of the " staff of life," which had been served out to them on board, which he handed to the bench for inspection. The men had apparently been looking at their fare through the medium of a microscope, no maggots being visible to the naked eye, and on subjecting it to the test of the palate, James Smith, Esq., who remarked that he had been eighteen years at sea, pronounced it to be unexceptionable, and his brother magistrates who partook of the " delicieux morceau" coinciding with him; the bench decreed that the...

GEELONG AUXILIARY BIBLE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 6 May 1846
GEELONG' AUXILIARY BIBLE SOCIETY. On the evening of Monday last a public meeting was held in the Presbyterian Church, for the purpose forming an auxiliary society in direct connex ion with the British and Foreign Bible Society of London. The evening was exceedingly unfavorable, on ac count of the heavy rain, the darkness, and the state of the streets. Notwith standing all these, however, the atten dance was respectable, although the proportion of ladies was rather small. SAfter prayer by the Rev. A. Love, Henry Hopkins Esq. was voted to the chair and opened the meeting by the following observations.-I am happy to see so many met in so good a cause as the formation of a branch in Geelong of the British and Foreign Bible So ciety. That institution is a glorious ornament to our native land ; it aims at disseminating the word of God, till the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the channels of the great deep.

ORIGINAL POETRY. THE SONG OF THE BUSH. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 6 May 1846
ORIGINAL POETRY. THE SONG OF THE BUSH. By the side of a dried-up creek, In the glare of a scorching sun, A squatter was squatting upon a log, Surveying his parched-up run— Squat—squat—squat ! &nbsp; With visage grizzly and gaunt, With a rueful look at his wretched hut, He sang this dolorous chaunt. Squat—squat—squat ! From weary year to year; Squat—squat—squat ! &nbsp; In continual dread and fear. It's O ! to be a rock, Or an oyster attached to that; For a tenure fixed I then would have, But now I can only squat ! shift—shift—shift ! From run to run I'm chased, Back—back—back ! Till I reach Sturt's desert waste, By laws, and leases, and sales, Sales, and leases, and laws, Commissioners' ipse-dixit fines, And the landsharks' horrible claws. O ! widows and maidens dear ! Whom we'd joyfully make our wives ! Just think of the desolate loneliness Of your poor squatters' lives. Squat—squat—squat ! Their only solace ' the weed,' Blowing their cares from a short black pipe; ...

THE SPIRIT OF THE AGE FAVOURABLE TO COLONISATION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 9 May 1846
THE SPIRIT OF THE AGE FAVOUR" ABLE TO-COLONISATION. (From Simmond's Magazine for December.) Ova corrupt nature has ever been prompt to commit wrong and injustice to attain its selfish ends, and shortsighted man seldom forsees the ultimate defeat and disgrace that so often recoil upon the man of bad faith and tyranny. The wronged have no redress but violence and war; yet victory does not always attend all struggles, however nobly sustained, of the oppressed : physical force and skill are no juster arbitrators between nations than between individuals. Again how many wars have sprung from imagined injury and insult !-how olten have two nations each in the firm belief that her banner was hallowed by justice and a right ful cause, bent every energy and strained every nerve to inflict mutual misery and ruin ! Mean-while, Peace, and her sister Civilisation, in tears, behold their good work undone, their progress stayed-till the pressure of taxation, and the many miseries attending war, awa...
THE DRAMA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 9 May 1846
THE I)ItAMA. The announcement of a five act comedy by the son of the veteran dramatist Sheridan Knowles, excited more than ordinary in terest, and the Haymarket was well at tended upon the occasion of its first pro duction last Wednesday. The opening essay of Mr Richard Brinsley Knowles has been made in the same field in which his father has reaped his well-earned laurels, and the choice of blank verse, and a rever sion to the Elizabethan era, has encouraged acomparison much to his credit. Ofcourse, touse the author's expression, no man masters his business at once, and there must be always faults inseparable from in experience upon just entering into a new profession or study. We call this new play of the Maiden Aunt, taking it in the proper hlight of a first effort, a praiseworthy pro duction, and we would rather stimulate Mr Knowles to future and more fortunate ex ertions, than damp his ardour by exposing inconsistencies and want oftact, which must in such a case be expected and ...
THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE ON THE OREGON QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 9 May 1846
THE P'RESIDENT'S MIESSAGE ON THlE OREGON QUESTION. ' The extraordinary and wholly in admissible demands of the British Government, and the rejection of the proposition made in deference alone to what had been done by mypredecessors, and the implied obligation which their acts seemed to impose, afford satisfactory evidence that no compromise which the United States ought to accept can be effected. With this conviction, the proposition of compromise which had been made and rejected, was, by my direction, subsequently withdrawn, and our title to the whole Oregon territory asserted, and, as is believed, maintained by irrefragable facts and arguments. The civilised world will see in these proceedings a spirit of liberal concession on the part of the United States; and this Government will be relieved from all responsibility which may follow the failure to settle the controversy. All attempt at compromise having failed it becomes the duty of Congress to consider what measures it may be pr...
THE AMAZING CARELESSNESS OF COLLIERS [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 9 May 1846
THB AMAZING CARELESsNESS OF COLLIE6RS.-It was Professor Faraday, we think, who amused the British As sociation by stating, that when he was in the H-aswell Pit, observing the pro parations for a blast, and holding a candle in his hand, he inquired - " VWhere isuyour gunpowder ?" when a collier coolly answered-" You are sitting upon it, Sir." A still grosser act of incaution, and, unhappily, dis astrous in its consequences, may now be recorded. Two pitmen, named Dickenson and Crozer, were last week " decanting" some gunpowder, and one of them was smoking his pipe at the time. The powder exploded, the men where blown up by the blast, and they are now totally blind.

The draught of a report to be submitted to a public meeting was read by the Secretary, and universally adopted. Considerable discussions ensued relative to the number of letters passing through the General Post Office in London, to and from the Australian Colonies, New Zealand, &c , and the amount likely to be derived from this source after the es. tablishment of mail-steampaekets. " he object of supplying coal from Sydney without delay to thie depots projected at points on the Australian coasts, was also discussed, and it was ultimately agreed to defer the consideration of tihe means of effecting this to the public meeting, which is fixed to take place on Ttuesday, in order to enable the documents prepared by the Commit tee to be forwarded by the packet ship, which sails on the 1st proximo.
