THE MAGISTRACY AND THE CONSTABULARY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 16 May 1842

THE MIAGISTRACY AND THE CON. - STABULAIRY. In another column will be found a report of the proceedings in the Police Court on Saturday; and we are sor,y to say that we never saw our Police Magistrate misbehave so egregiously on any former occasion. We have already given him credit for all the negative qualities of humanity, but we have now to add the positive ones of malevolence and wrongheadedness. The manner in which Mr Robinson has been annoyed and persecuted by him and his myr midons, has called forth the sympathy and indignation of every one acquainted with the particulars. About eight days ago two trumpery charges under the licensing act were brought against Mr Robinson; both.of these charges were dismissed as frivo lous and unfounded. Constable Car man, seeing the day going against him, threw out an angry insinuation that Mr R. had attempted to bribe him. We do not accuse Curman of perjury, but we do say that, when he was upon his oath, he attempted to confirm this insinuatio...

THE TOWN HERD. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 16 May 1842

THE TOWN HERD. When the town-herd regulations were first promulgated, we laughed at -them as a most ridiculous display of. paltry legislation. We could not find out then, and we have never found out since, the act or authority from which these regu lations are derived, neither do we know to whom we are indebted for their ap plication to this township ; nay, what is more, we do not know except from hearsay, that there are any such regula Lions in existence, and we ate indebted to the same source for a vague idea of their nature and requirements. Has any one ever seen them or heard them? Have they ever been printed, written, or spoken ? What are they, and where are they ? Do they form part of the Statute, or do they belong to that vol uminous code--TilE UNWRITTEN LAW OF GEELONG. These regulations are supposed to be enforced by the crown commissioner; they are laughed at and set at naught by the police magistrate, who thus becomes the ringleader of the disaffected; the public at large ...

THE WHARF. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 16 May 1842

TnE Wt.t?r.-It is a pity that' this structure should be rendered almost useless to the public, by the way in which it is,kept encumbered and blocked up by the government. The lazy, lum bering movements of the men em ployed, would be less provoking if they tlid not interfere with the more im. portant avocations of those who pay for the use:of the wharf. The jetty is m'ro than thirty feet wide, and yet there is seldom room for two carts to pass on any part of it; the entire surface being strewn with immense boulders of stone, weighing about half-a-ton each. There can be no reasonable excuse for the con. tinuance of this nuisance ; as there is abundance of room near the wharf. without lumbering the most valuable part of it. The stubborn and insolent behaviour of the convict overseer is an. other ground of complaint. The up. pointment ofl such a man to an office of authority over free labourers is a crying shame, and would not be tolerated even in the penal districts of the colony. Is n...

THE LICENSES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 16 May 1842

THE LICENSES. On Saturday last, those applicants who had been recommendcd at the previous licensing nmeeting, attended at the Police Office to enter into the requisite recogni zances. When Mr Robinson was called upon, Mr Fenwick stated that he did not intend to sanction the renewal of his license until he had communicated with his I-Tonor the Superintaendent. This abrupt notifica tion excited considerable surprise ; and on, being pressed for his reasons, he said that " Mr Robinson had attempted to bring the constables into disrepute, and they were sufficiently abused already." On being pressed still farther, lie stated that on a former occasion, it appeared that Mr R. had oftered to bribe the district constable. The other sitthig magistrate (Mr Addis) re. marked that the only charge of that kind which had been entered into was altogether groundless, and protested as strongly as was consistent with civility against 'the unjust and irregular manner in which Mr Fenwick had accused Mr R...

SHIP CANAL FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 16 May 1842

SHIP CANAL FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THlE PACIFIC. The new work of Mr St.v ,ns contains an extended notice of a survey of a route for a ship canal from the Atlantic to the Pacific, via Lake Nicaragua. by Mr. Baily, a half-pay oflicer in the British navy. The route, as surv yed by that gentleman, commences at the head of ,hip navigation on the river San Juan, which empties into the Pacific and pro. ceeds to Lake Nicaragua, a distance of fifteen miles and two-thirds. The high est elevation on this route is 615 feet above the level of the Pacific. The aggregate of accents from the Pacific to the Lake is 1047 feet. and of descent, 919 feet, Consequently the Lake is 128 feet higher than the Pacific. In the first eight miles from the Lake, but one lock is necessary. In the next mile sixty-four feet of lockage is required. In the next three mi!es, there are about two of deep cutting and one of tunnel; and then a decent of two hundred feet in three miles, by lockag , to the Panfi . rhe lake itse...

SCAB IN SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 16 May 1842

SCAB IN SHEEP. From the Adelaide Examiner. We have no means of knowing whether this disease has actually been on the in. crease of late; or whethea it has de creased; nod so long as statements on this subject rest on the authority of mere annonymous letter writers in the Chronicle or the Southern Australian, we consider them entitled to as much credit as a sensible merchant would give to a bill of Mr J. T. Wilson late of Sydney. One thing is evident, that the fact of its increase is neither notorious nor generally admitted. Our attention having been drawn to this subject, we have perused the original act for preventing the exten. sion of scab, and the subsequent amend ment thereon. Tae inspector has cer tainly no authority to prevent the killing of scabby sheep ; neither can he interfere with diseased flocks depastur iug on tile proprietor's own land, further than to give them six months' notice to cure the same, no penalties being in. curred within that period.

We have neither time nor space to bestow sufficient attention upon this lvitally-important subject, (the week's news having all arrived at once) but: we cannot better describe it.than as a sort of Corporation Bill for Country Districts. The Directors of Police and Pub lic Works are to be chosen by the inhabitants, the lowest qualification for an elector being a rental of £20. Where the populatian of a district shall be less than seven thousand souls, the number of directors is to be nine. The Directors are to form a body coiporate, with power to sue and be sued, &c.

EMIGRATION TO JAMAICA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 16 May 1842

E.11IGRIATION TO JAMAICA. From the Emigration Journal. As the ,uflcompromining promoterd of Emigration and. Colonization on it national basis, and as the advocates and monitors ofthe intending emigrant, it is our bounden duty to expose the monstrous attempt that is being made to co!onize that well-known pestilential island .lanmaic, by means of Emigration from this country. I I the hand of the prince of darkness was ever visible in the base and venal transactions of man, it will be plainly seen in the past results of this diabolical scheme. Disappointment, sickness, and death have been the portion of all the emigrants; and the same fa'e awaits those who msy yet be victimized to the cupidtity of the late merciless slave mas ters; and at present, the no less venal Emigration-mongers of Jamaica. The results of the importation of emi -rants from this country into the island are so appalling, that the Governor was unavoidably aomipelled to allude to them in his Address to the late House ...

INSOLVENT LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 16 May 1842

INSOLVENT LAW. Frmn the Lnunceston Eanmiticr. The Insolvent Law, designed to miti. gate the sufferings of the debtor and to protect the property of the creditor, i. daily sanking in the estimration and con fidence of the public. It is the refuge to which the spend brilt and the specu Jetor direct their eyes for encourage .ment, lather than the shelter of th. erring and unlortunate when overtaken by the btorm. A process ishich, by its feqsuency has ceased to be disgraceful diverts the cloud from the debtor to the creditor, and frees the former from every difftticulty at once. What is an oath to a robber,, and what is disgrace to a swindler? Such are not wanting in comrades to applaud their dex erity, and to secrete their spoil. The too limited discretion of a too lenient com. missioner is but a feeble check to dis honesty, where its practise is so easy and its inducements so strong. The most stupid villain can work an insol vency with facility, laugh at his credi tors, bow to the com...

On the 13th, having completed our stores, provisions &c., we procee ded over the hbar (on wh ch we found a heavy sea) in the river, and there hauled the ship on the beach, and allowed- her to ground in order to clean the bottom, and make some repairs to her rudder. The river, one of the many mouths to the great Niger, is at the entrance about one mile and a quarter in breadth, and at this season, by reason of the rains, very rapid; the...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 16 May 1842

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. By a newspaper just received we find that Daniel O'Connell is about to bring before parliament the question of Sir John Franklin's frequent suspensions. I'he ministry will now get rid of this troublesome affair, by requesting Sir John to explain, in person, his deeds. God grant they may do it speedily, his is too good a place not to be handed over to some friend of the ministry. (Cornwall Chronicle.) SMOKING T?

COLONIAL POLITICS. OBJECTIONS TO THE CORPORATION BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 16 May 1842

COLONIAL POLITICS. OBJECTIONS TO THE CORPORATION. BILL. As faithful chroniclers of public opinion, we are desirous of affording a fair field to all, parties, whether opponents or coadjutors, and therefore desire the discussion of every question uplon which a difference of opinion may exist. In the absence of a contemporary paper, (a want which we sincerely regret,) we hliall endeavour to show impartiality to every interest, without at, the same time comrpromising our own staunchness or consistency. -There are a few influential and well nxeaningr inhabitants of this town who disapprove of. the extension of civic priviliges to this community, on the ground that, the so-called privileges will actually become an intolerab!e burden to the inhabitants, in an inverse proportion to tbe size of the town. In answer to this, we unhesitatingly ad mit that the measure will prove bur dersome at first, and the only way to overturn this argument, is to put the advantages in the opposite scale, when...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 16 May 1842

NEW ZEALAND. The following lavorable account of the money mas ket in New Zealand is orom the Wellington Spectator-We have been informed by two of the leading .merchants that although there is dilui culty in making paymernts, and scarcity of capital, yet the dishonor of a bill payable at the bank is of very rare oc. ruutence. Cautious dealers never have an" overdue bill to take up. And be it temn mbered that during the greater part of last year no legal means existed lt rompelling payments. These facts tell more otr the credit of the colony thani any addition to the imports or sales, the result ol wild speculations. The Conveyancing Bill is printed in the Government Gazette. We decline the task of making a complete abstract, and merely state the real point of inter est to the public--namely, that by de claring many covenants to be implied, which were formerly inserted at full length, the length and cost of deeds will be greatly reduced. Where the amount of property conveyed does not ...
