CAPE OTWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 13 May 1846
S : CAPP OTWAY. About a fortnight ago, we announced ihe fact that two exploring parties had a?arted or..were about to start into the =ountry-surrounding Cape Otway, and at the same time took the -opportunity of giving a d-ge.t of all that was known respecting tie geography of that part of the colony: remarking that we looked forward with great interest to the results of these expeditions, as being likely to dovelopo the resources of that terra in cognito-resources, as might be ex pected, of a very different kind from those already known ; and indulging in ihB hope that, notwithstanding the present impenetrab'e nature of the counlry, these resources would ere long afford scope for the settlement of a numerous 'yeomanry.' Our having given expression to this very natural train ol ideas, has called forth a communication from Mr Fawkner, in the Patriot of yesterday, in which, by the dexterous transposition of a few extracts, he:makes of our renmaika a very laugh. able caricature, which w...
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 13 May 1846
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. Government House, which has hitherto been deemed large enough for His Ex-. cellency's married predecessors-(in fact Governor Grey thought it so large as to have requested permission from the home government to let it) is, it seems, forth. with to undergo considerable enlarge ment, but whether in anticipation of refined domestio arrangements, or merely for the better sustaining the dignity of Her Majesty's representative, must for the present continue to. be a matter of conjecture.

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 13 May 1846
SYDNEY. : IWIrR AAETHE Snips? - By the end- of. this--week our- intelligence from England will be five months, old, and upon reference to our files, we find that for the-last three years the January ships from England have. always made long passages, owing to the' prevalence of the westerly winds on the English coasts, which prevent vessels from getting clear of the Channel. There is an instance of a ship (the Upton Castle) being detained in the Channel three months, from De cember to March. _The consequence has been that we have always received the January news by some indirect channel. In 1843, we find that the London news of the Gth January was brought to this colony by the circuitous route of China, on the 25th of May, by the Australasian Packet, and as there now is (which was not the case in 1844) steam to Hong kong, we may expect to receive news by the same route immediately, the Nim rod being honurly expected. In 1844, the London mail of the Gth January ar rived in Sydney on ...

M, Kk TON HAY.., ,,.,,;" (From the Sydney HIerald.) - *.

They visited a station formerly occupied by a Mr Gordon, but now taken up by Messrs; l-Iay; the party inside the dwelling house, who: wore just finishing dinner at dusk, were taken all a-back by see ing half a dozen muskets and pistol: presented at their heads, with a polite request from the gentlemen of the road to sit still until they performed a few necessary operations in their line. TI'o.the credit of the fellows, they con ducled themselves in a quiet orderly manner, taking the gentlemen's word of honor that none of the desks or boxes contained money.

GEELONG AND GLENELG RAILWAY. To the Editor of the Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 13 May 1846
GEELONG AND'GLENELG RAIlWAY. To the Editor of the Gecelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate. Stn,-Having lately had occasion to travel along a considerable portion of the route of the proposed Goolong and Glenclg Railway, I was naturally led from my position and the fulmina tions I had read in the Gazette on the subject, to weigh the merits of the undertaking in- the scale of my own judgment. The result of those cogitations I beog to hand you. Passing over the letter of your cor respondent on railways in your num ber for April 22nd, the purport of which, to say the truth, is at least ambiguous, his subscription neutraliz ing the subject matter of his letter, I will come at once to try what my dissecting scalpel can effect in exposing the specious, but shallow, sophistries of the Gazette,. As your unenthusiastical railway correspondent very properly remarks, the great burden of the Gazette's strictures on the proposed company resolves itself into " nothing more nor less than a more...
PREPARATIONS FOR WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 13 May 1846
PREPARATIONS FOR WAIL It .is remarkable that while the most friendly relations'are knoivn' to exist :be tween England and France, both these powerful nations are earnestly occupied in placing their warlike powers in the highest state of preparation. This fact has been attributed by those who' sde,only the sur face to tihelong'ekistiig jealousy between the two dountries. I woi~ld'seemn, however, that such is not the real cruseodf these mutual armings. It is reported in the best informed circles of London that the gigantic power of Russia is the real cause of appro hension. rt is said that the legitimate es pionage, called " diplomatic agency, has pe netrated into certain designs of the am bitious Autocrat of theNorth to once more enforce his pretensions to the free naviga tion of the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles, rrnd that war with the' Porte is really in tended, let that, feeble power endeavour to coiiciliate the Russian Bear how he may.

S" It'is the Oriental Company, that in order to forstal tlhe-one which proposes to take the Cape route, has hit upon the expedient of depriving it of our assistance, by voluntarily anticipating our wants.

Marshal Saxe calculated that one out of five of the inhabitants of the country is a man capable of bearing arms. Now, Algeria has at most a population ot 1,500,000. This would give 300,000 fighting men; but it must be borne in mind that one-half of the inhabitaatse are favourable to the French, or at least neuter, a fact which reduces the men capable of war against the invader to 150,000, and the French army in Algeriais by this time increased to 120,000 men, the greater part of ihom are well disciplined, inure...

MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 16 May 1846
MISCELLANEA. FRANCE.-T'he successor of Marshal Soult, as Mlinister of War, has not yet been def' nitively appointed, and there appears to be considerable difficulty in making the selection, The Constitutionel says, that General de Lascours has accepted the office, but the ministerial :apers are'silent on the subject. In the meantime Marshal Soult has quitted the hotel of the Ministry: of War. It.is now found-whether or no by rren in offlice we cannot say-but by all others; thait' Providence is mightier than Prime Ministers; that it is poor sport gambling with harvests ; that prices will not adjust themselves to acts of Parliament or the exigencies of sellers; in a word, that a fluctuating duty adds embarrassment and uncertainty to speculations which must always be uncertain and contingent. It is a curious and inexplicable:fact, that the teeth noticed in ancient sculls of the aborigines of various countries, differ very materially from the present form. Dr Allnatt has lately describe...
