PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 9 May 1842
lPunt.LIC M'ETINO.-ADDRESs TO TltE QLUEEN.-On Wednesday last, the loyal inhabitants of Geelong met together at the Woolpack len, for the purpose of 'adopting an address of congratulation to Her Majesly on the occasion of the birth of an infant prince. DMr Fetwi"rk was voted to the chair; the address (4 hich will be found in another columrn) was read by the Rev. Mr Love, and gave great satisfaction. Indeed, on such an occasion, it was Impossible that aught but unanimity and goodw?ill should prevail. The address was nu merously and respectably signed before the meeting separated. At the conclusion of the business for which the meeting was called, Dr. Thomson, in a few well chosen and pointed remarks, introduced to th meeting the Memorial for the extcnsit n of Municipal privileges to.this comm. .nity. Ilib views met with the applause of his fellow-citizens, and the Memorial received the signatures of those who had not previously had an opportunity of signing it. Both the Address and th...
NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 9 May 1842
NEW ZEALAND. Notwithstanding many dill'culties with which the settlers have had to contend, we can make favorable report of the progress of New Plymouth. The land is of a finer quality than was at first supposed. Instead of imme, se plains covered with fern and coarse grass, the country is for the most part thickly wooded, not heavily timbered; and experience has taught us that wooud land is incalculably superior to that which yiel.-ls tha short fern. It hns also been ascertained that, during the greater part of the.year, passengers. anld merchandi'e can hIe safe y put' ashore near the settlement ; but until ,omre means have been taken for the security of shipping during bad wea ther, large vessels ought not to be sent to Nw Plymouth. so as. to arrive in the winter. Small coasters have no thing to fear ; and a brisk trade is now springing up between Port Nicholson and Taranaki. Tllne settlers generally busy, and tlien they pro re a supply of work i g bullocks, thteir progress in cle...

THE BANK. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 9 May 1842
THE BANK.-We are happy to have it in our power to state that the Geelong Branch of the Union Bank will most probably be opened for the transaction of business before the end of the present week. The Manager, JM. Mann, Esq. has arrived from Launceston with the * materiel;' and all the other requisite preparations have been nearly com. plated through the energy and zeal of the Resident Director. The estab lishment of a baiik in a commercial township is deservedly looked upon as a most important epoch in the history of its advancement. We do not know of any institution that could be so bene ficial to the community, at the present moment, as a well-regulated Bank; and that the result will be as satisfactory to the projectors as to the public, there cannot be a doubt. Apropos ! how long will our sloggish Government allow itself to be shamed by the rapid advance of private enter prise I How long are we doomed to struggle against the monstrous injustice of the Customs regulations?

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. MORE MURDERS AT PORT LINCOLN. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 9 May 1842
SOUTH AUtTStALIA. MORtE MURDERS AT PORT LI(NCOLY. A small fishing boat, despatched by the inhabitants of Port Lincoln, arrived in Adelaide on Sunday last, bringing the melancholy intelligence of the maur ider of Mr. IBiddle, a respectable stock holder at that settlement, Mrs. Stubbs, his housekeeper, an old woman of sixty nine years of age, and James Fastings, Mr Biddle's shepherd, by a party of natives, who surrounded the house, and committed this horrible deed in open day.. 'The particulars of this deplorably melancholy occurrence, as far as we have been abler to gather them, are as follows:--On Tuesday week. about I~ o'clock at noon, a party of about forty or fifty natives came to Mr Biddle's station, and seeing Fastings go for some purpose to the henhouse. they threw at him several spears, one of which he re ceived in his leg on his return. They then went into the garden, pulling up the potatoes and destroying the fence, and then went away, but returned in abiout an hour. As the...

MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 9 May 1842
MUirDEn.-On Saturday last, a man named Michael Molloy was committed to stand his trial at the next criminal session of the Supreme Court, for the wilful murder of a man named Woods, on the night of the '9th April last! The prisoner and the deceased were recently arrived imlmigrants, and were fellow-servants in the employ of Mr G. S. Ailey, commissioner of crown lands for the county of Bourke. They were em ployed on two adjoining out-stations near BIuninyong, and their huts were a considerable distance apart. On the night in question the deceased and an other shepherd were asleep in the same hut; in the dead of the night, the com panion of the deceased heard a shot fired ; he started up in.a state of alarm and confusion, went out, and saw a man with a gun walking away from the hut, but could not recognise him. Thinking that the gun had been fi ed outside, he returned to bed, and thought no more about it until the following morn ing, when he found the dead body of his comrade lying be...
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. REPRESENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 9 May 1842
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. REPItESENTATION.-The Imoerial Go. vernmenut cannot long rvade the claims of its Australasian subjects -- they must obtain the full enjoyment of British privileges. .Sydney has moved in ear nest; the tlifficulties created by division are at length overcome, and the prayer of one hundred thoasand people must reach their rulers however distant : nor will it be unavailing. But we ask-is Van Diemen's Land indifferert on a subject deemed so momentous by our colonial neighbours I We have heard loud and boistererous complaints of misrule-they have issued from every corner of the land - they have been echoed by every press in the island: but many improvements desired by the colonists can never be accomplished by a government constituted like ours, and many regulations they condemn are originated and suppoi ted by the govern. ment at home. What is the remedy for these defects and evils ? The colony can hardly be amended or relieved by phillipics pronounced against an office...

THE POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 9 May 1842
THE POL.ICE. - On this everlasting sulbject we had initended to inflict a few Columns of remar ks upon our readers, and of hirter uniinadver·ion upon the incorrigible, unprincipled fraternity who izlict this colony under the die guise of constables. Circumstances, however, have prevented our entering into a detail of their misdeeds; sulfice it to say that the ' chief,' the ' district,' the ' petties,' and the lorck-ups,' have all alike proved themselves deserving of severe castigation. We are also sorry to perceive that the magistrates shut their eyes to the misdeeds of their underlings, and instead of protecting the public, they become quite incensed if the slightest insinuation be uttered against the spotless characters of their hired minions, who are paid for swearing by the piece. The system is had, and it is badly administered. In the mean time we will let the rod lay in pickle that it may be sufficiently salt when we have occasion to use it again.
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 9 May 1842
CAPE OY GOOD [I'OPK. From the Zuid Africann. - Year after year the question of a representative hkgiwlative assembly was agitated-petitions were presented to tile home goveriment-public meetings held-all apparently without any avail. 'tihere was a waint of that cordial una rnimiiy of procee.dings and co opera tion of all parties, which only could secure the. introduction of that prii ciple. Our present prospects on that sub. ject are fair and bright.; we find in this colony the government and the people, and all parties unainous in their application for th-it boon ; an. at home her Majesty's government willing to grant it.. Public improvements - such as the mnaking and repairing of roads-seem to be forbidden, and we have nothing to expect ori that head.

THE SCAB ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 9 May 1842
THE SCAB ACT.-We are glad to per- ceive that the magistrates are now pro- perly convinced of the necessity for enforcing the provisions of this act. On Wednesday last, several settlers attended at the Police Office to prefer complaints against. Mr Duverney for having driven infected sheep on crown lands contrary to law; on the evidence &nbsp; of Mr Sutherland. he was fined in the penalty of five pounds. Mr Russel and others, whose runs had been crossed, declined proceeding with their informa- tions until they should be able to ascer- tain whether their flocks had caught the &nbsp; infection, in which case they would claim special damages. The act allows complaints to be made at any time within three months after the cause of complaint shall have arisen. The return of Captain Fyans from his three month's excursion in the Portland Bay district is daily expected. It is re- ported that he has succeeded in cap- turing the black who was guilty of the murder of Mr Codd abou...
