A NEW OREGON CLSIMANT [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 9 May 1846

A New OREGON CLAIMANT.-It appears that, the Emperor of Russil is in the field as a claimant for the disputed Oregon terri tory. He maintains that his possessions descend to 54 degrees 40 minutes. We cannot learn the ground of his Imperial Majesty's claim, but the following official document has been issued:-" Department of State, Washington, September 26.-The Russian Minister at Washington has in formed the Secretary of State that the Imperial government, desirous of affording efficient protection of the Russian territo ries in North America against the infrac tions of foreign vessels, has authorieed cruizers to 'be established for this purpose along the coast by the Russian American Company. It is therefore recommended to American vessels to be careful not to frequent the interior seas, gulfs, harbours, and creeks upon that coast at any point north of the latitude of 54 degrees 40 minutes." The Oregon is the name given to a steam. boat recently launched at New York. which is 10 fee...

CONFESSION OF MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 9 May 1846

CONFESSION OF MURDER. Exactly twelve months have now elapsed since a murder was committed in one of the principal streets of Yar mouth, before the business of the day had scarcely closed, accompanied by such an amount of unnecessary and and brutal violence as must ever make it stand almost unparalleled in the an nals of crime. The deceased, it may be remembered, was a widow, living alone, and 'carrying on a small re tail business in the chandlery-line. Whilst she was gone to a neighbour ing public-house to buy her supper beer some persons entered her house for the purpose of robbing it (they having heard she had taken £150 as a legacy the day before), and from some cause or other fractured her skull in several places, and after doing this cut her throat. Her next door neigh bour, Mr Yarham, was suspected: he made a statement which proved him ,to be an accessary after the fact, but -he was admitted evidence for the Crown against three others, Royal, Hall, and Mapes, who were all ac q...

ANOTHER LAND SALE [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 9 May 1846

ANOTHER LAND SALE.-The Govern ment has notified that a sale of Town and Suburban Allotments shall be held on the 3rd of June next. The numerous applicants for allotments in the town of Geelong will be disappointed to hear that only Half an Acre is to be offered, viz., No. 15, of IBlock 36, situated to the west ward of the building intended for the Bank of Australasia. The other' Town' allotments are in the village of Waringal, near Heidelberg, in the suburbs of Mel bourne. As the Government Advertise ment does not state where " Waringal" is to be found (not even the Connty being given), we, at the first glance, supposed that it must he the new township at -.nadv's Bay (Warnambool), at the month of the Hopkins. Others, we know, have fallen into the same error; and they would find it a rather serious one if they purchased without furtlhr inquiry. The Suburban lots in the County of Grant include 941 acres, in the Parish of Moor panyal, having frontages to the Marra. 'bool, extending fr...

DR. FORBES'S EXPOSURE OF THE HUMBUG OF MESMERISM. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 9 May 1846

DR. FORBES'S EXPOSURE OF THE HUMBUG OF MESMERISM. Dr. Forbes, the physician to the Queen's Household, has just published a little work, entitled "Illustrations of Modern Mesmerism," which can be pro cured of Mr Churchill, bookseller, of Princos-street, Soho. The Doctor, with out being a prejudiced man, but, on the contrary,one who is not disposed to mis. trust theory simply because it is theory, has devoted much attention to the sub ject of mesmerism ; and, being of an inquiring, persevering, enlightened, dis position, is the very man to take the apostles of clairvoyance by the hand, did he think them fairly deserving of pa tronage. Had he lived in the time of Galileo, hlie would ithave believed in Ga. lileo, because this great astronomer de monstrated his assertions; but as Dr. Forbes lives in the age of mesmerism, he will not believe that it is a science, be cause its professors cannot prove its veracity. Theories, however startling they may be, never appear preposterous to sensib...

SEPARATION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 9 May 1846

SEPARATION. IT is confidently asserted, in various quarters, that the speedy Separation of the Southern from the Middle District has been resolved upon; and that the necessary preliminaries are now in a course of speedy arrangement. We do not know the origin of these rumours, but there is] every probability that they are well founded. The Patriot has the following remarks on the subject: It is highly gratifying to us to be enabled to inform our readers, upon un questionable authority, that such is the progress made in the adjustment of tle Separation Question, that the subject of the future boundaries of the Colony of Port Phillip are now under discussion by the Government. What are the particular views of his Excellency Sir George Gipps on the sub ject we are not, of course, prepared to say, nor yet those of the Surveyor General; but thus much we feel at liberty to state tlat the boundary line between Port Phillip and New South 'Wales will be drawn with especial refer ence to natur...

EXPLORATION & SURVEY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 9 May 1846

EXPLORATION & SURVEY. (From the Sydney Herald.) The successful accomplishment of any extraordinary feat has generally the effect of attracting the attention of the multitude to similar undertakings; thus gradually, sometimes almost in stantaneously, giving a new direction to popular taste ; but which will be regulated by a variety of circum stances, such as the degree of ardour in the constitution, the importance of the object in view, and the expense or risk at which it is to be attained. "Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance." When the eye or imagination is struck with any uncommon work, tile next transi tion.of an active mind is to tile means by which it is performed." These may perhaps be considered as axioms under which tile first great problem has been worked out by Lcichhardt's accomplishment of a project that was for a long time looked upon as a de sperate undertaking. Yielding to the impulse of a curiosity as to thle results of his wonderful...

COLONIAL RAILWAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 9 May 1846

COLONIAL RAILWAYS. From the Railway King. Government, i.e., the Colonial De partment, is about to interfere with the proposed railways for the colonies. This, so far from affording any ground for complaint, is no more than a discharge of the legitimate functions of government. Railway projectors ask fractious privi leges on the plea that their operations will benefit the community. This is the kind of business with which government ought to meddle, provided it meddles judiciously. Has government acted ju diciously on this occasion ? Nous verrons. Last week cards were issued, appa rently to every party who had at any time addressed Lord Stanley on the sub ject of a colonial railway, intimating his lordship's desire for an interview with them, on Monday last, at the Colonial Office. To issue those cards indiscrimi nately to all speculators, who in this land of liberty had seen fit to address the Colonial Minister on such a sub ject, was unavoidable; though it must he confessed that it...

THE SPEAKERSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 9 May 1846

THIE SPEAKERSHIP. IT is reported that Mr M'Leay will on the first day of the season announce his resignation. Some person subscribing himself a colonist, mentions the names of six members whom he considers eligi ble to fill the office. He names them in the following order, intimating thereby, we presume, that the first-named is the most eligible, and the last-named the least so. The order is as follows: Mr Wentworth Mr Cowper Mr H. Macarthur Colonel Gibbes Captain O'Connell Captain Dumaresq. We will now give our list: Dr. Bland Mr DarvalI Mr H. Macarthnr Colonely Gibbes Mr Wentworth and Mr Cowper are wanted as Debaters and Committee-men. Captain O'Connell is too young an inex perienced. Captain Dumaresq wants energy. Dr Bland is incapable of any thing that would entrench on that impartiality and zeal for the honor of the office, and the dignity of the House, which should distinguish the Speaker. Hie is not a Squatter in the wrong sense, but a zea lous one in the right. He is neither...

REPORTED DISCOVERY OF THE UNICORN. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 13 May 1846

REPOITBD DISCOVERY OF TIIE UNI. CORN.-At a meeting of the Syro.Egyp tian Society, on the 4th Instant, a communication was read from Professor Freanel, Jidda, containing a variety of information which that learned traveller had collected, as to the existence of a one-horned animal, in the neighbourhood of Lake Tchad, and in the countries ad jacent to the sources of the Niger. It appeared from M. Fresnel's information, derived from merchants, Badawi Arabs, and other sources, that the animal in question approached more to the rumi nant than the pachydermous family of quadrupeds, with thick skin, little hair, and a loose single horn between the eyes. Some described it as resembling the uruch or bison; others assimilated It more to the mule. It was repiesented as -an ex tremely ferocious animal. M. Fresnel then entered into an elaborate comparison of this animal with the unicorn of scrip ture and that of Pliny. A note was next read from the Rev. Albert Badger, learn edly arguing that the...

POSITION OF PARTIES IN THE UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 13 May 1846

POSITION 'OF PARTIES IN THE UNITED STATES. [From the Liverpool Times.] The following explanation of tho present position of political parties in the United States will enable those of our readers, who have not hitherto paid attention to the internal politics of that country, to judge of the nature of the support and of the opposition which President Polk is likely to meet with in his attempt to push the dispute with England, respecting the Oregon question, to a war. The present American opposition is generally known as the Whig party. Its representatives in Congress are men from all parts of the Union, without any very decided preponder ance of members from any one section of the Republic. The leaders of this party are Henry Clay and Daniel Webster. It is opposed, almost to a man, to a war with England on tlhe Oregon question ; but, unfortunately, it is almost as unanimously opposed to the principles of free trade. The popular clap-trap, which it has taken up, is " the protection of...

GREETINGao' , An article couched 'under the semblance of anieditorial effusion, having appeared in the Squatters' Advocate and Geelong Ad vertiser, of Saturday, May 2, 1846, under the heading " Cape Otway," ostensibly purporting to have the good of the " Yeo manry" at heart, and at the same time calling upon J. P. F. to concur with its sentiments.and recommendations. I have examined it carefully, for I am at all times ready to receive, and happy to assist in promulgatine to, and for the benefit of the " Yeomanry" instruction, advice, and when to be had, information. I took some trouble to examine and sift the highly elaborate and learnedly con cocted article, written expressly to show the capabilities of the far-famed Cape Otway district, as a site for the "Yeoman farmers" of Australia Felix to. fix upon, and make rapid fortunes; this was done carefully by me, because I arn not willing to let the ,famed " Yeomanry" of Australia Felix pass fr...

NAVAL, IVlovcEtENTS AND PREPArA.ITIONS IN THiE PAC?IC.-Someinterest was itdfetw months since, created by the announcemeih that Admiral Seymour, in thelCollingwood, of 80 guns, with the Modeste, sloop otfwar, had sailed with sealed orders from Callao. It now appears that the first object of his voyage was to moot tlie French 'Admiral at Tahiti, for the purpose of settling Mlr Pritchard's claim for compensation; but that from thence he would sail to the Sand wich Islands, where.he was to be joined by the Frolic. brig ; when .the squadron would sail for the coast of California... It is toler ably clear from recent 'accounts, that in a short time after the date of the accounts, Admirial'Seymour will be upon or near the coast of Oregdn, with one ship of 80, one of 50, one of 18, and one of 15 guim ; but it is also obvious, from the indirect ..course he was taking, that no -immediate. troubles were to be apprehended in that quarter.
