DIAMOND MINE OF SINCURA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 16 May 1846

DIAMOND MINE OF SINCURA. (Prom the Atheneum, Nor;. 2.) We live in the age and the meridian of the positive. Ours is the region and the period of what, in the jargon of the day, is called great facts. Dreamland is overshadowed by the vapours of Steam-land, and railways have ridden down Romance. The truths of our world are strange-straneer than the fictions of our fathers. Turn aside as Imagination would from the beaten path of Fact, her "enemy has found her out;"--build where she might her fairy fabrics, Fact has followed her, and reared up a solid structure by their side, overtopping them all. Alas, for the Genius of Romance! Where, on this earth of ours, is there any visible resting-place left for the souil of that bright spirit's foot ? Where went' it ever, on its many-coloured wings, that we go not now with the trowel and the spade? Under the beds of rivers, and right !hrough the hearts of hills-away along the fields of air, and down in the deeps of the sea-Science has been in al...

NATIONAL DEFENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 16 May 1846

NATIONAL: DEFENCE. - Lord .Dun donald has reminded the public" that he has a tremendous secret of destruction, some unknown.power, which .no present means: of- marine warfare could resist, while -it would supersede cumbersome stationary defences. Lord Dundonald is not the only person who vaunts the possession of such terrible secrets; we remember Mr Warner for,one, and there may be more.,• The slighmting disregard shown to these persons does not appear to us to bejudicious. --T!ie-matter ought to be set at rest in some way. : There is one secret, at least, which the public have a right to know--the principle on which government have, acted in their rebuff of. those tgentlemen.; Lord Dun donald, for instance,.. says that he has a plan which ,will supersede milliotns' worth of fortifications, and will destroy invading fleets. Government say, by, their, acts, ihat they.iwill not meddle with it. That looks strange. It may be very right , but,. to have even the most general notion of its...

In prosonting to this meoting, and tho public, a Report for the first four months 'of the Aboriginal School, es tablished at the Merri creek, it will be necessary for us to recount thle steps by which Divine Providence has conducted us since the commence ment of our operations among the chil dren of the Yarra Tribe, by taking them under our care and instruction. In September last, two or three of the aboriginal children belonging to the Yarra tribe requested to be ad mitted into a Sunday School, which Mr Peacocke was then conducting at Richmond. Their request was imme diately granted; but no sooner was this fact communicated to the other children of the tribe, than they canme also, increa'ing every week as fast as their parents brought them from the bush. From the rapid increase of the abori gines in this school, the idea of having a separate establishment for them na turally suggested itself to the mind of Mr Pe...

LOSS OF H. M. BRIG OSPREY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 16 May 1846

LOSS OF H. 2r. BRIG OSPRBY. From the New Zealander. IT is with the deepest regret we have to announce the loss of this beautiful brig of war, mounting twelve guns, on the western coast, about eighteen miles to the northward of Hokianga, on Wednes day, the 11th March, about three o'clock in the afternoon. On Tuesday, the 10th March, the Osprey made the western coast, and was enabled to take an observation, which proved that she was in the latitude of Hokianga; but the weather coming on thick and hazy, she kept off the land until the evening, when it cleared away. She then stood in, fiied two guns to an nounce to the pilot, at Hokianga, that she was off the harbour, and again slood. to sea for the night. .On the toilowing morning, on neariing the coast, a high southern headland, similar to Hokianga, was seen, with what wasý presumed to be the pilot's house; but which, .subse quently, 'proved "to be a whiite spatt on the cliff. Soon afterwards, perceivilng:aa red:flag run up, it was co...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 16 May 1846

,NEW ZEALAND. From the Sydney papers. WE have Auckland papers to the 11th April. All was quiet in the northern portion of the colony, although it appears to be beyond a doubt that Heki is still endeavouring to form a coalition among the native chiefs, for the purpose of re newing hostilities.. There was a report brought in by the natives, and there. fore not much to be depended upon, that there had been a skirmish in the neigh. bourhood of Port Nicholson, between the troops and the natives, in which the latter suffered severely. Many of the old set tlers-had returned 6" the Bay of fslands. There had been a great battle between two tribes, about thirty miles from Auck land, in which about sixty natives were killed. The news from the Hutt is rather im portant. There was a rumour, however, going the rounds of Auckland when the Terror sailed, that there had been a puny battle on the Hutt, but it was not cre dited, the news having been brougtht by a native, who had travelled overland to ...

THE GEELONG BENCH. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 16 May 1846

TIIE GEELONG BENCII.--Very great inconvenience has long been experienced from the irregularity of the attendance of the magistrates. It is not an unusual case for persons charged with offences under the Masters' and Servants' Act, to be detained in custody several days, before their guilt or innocence can be enquired into. Litigants from the coun- try, too, are detained in town day after day at great expense, even when their cases are fixed for a particular date, spe- cially understood as set apart for sum- mons cases. We cannot blame the magistrates themselves for this state of affairs. The most of them are country residents, and it would be requiring too great a sacrifice, to call upon 'them to leave their distant homes to go through the "drudgery" of a police   office. The onus of the present bad system rests upon the Government, both in its legislative and executive character; and by the Government alone can the remedy be applied. There are two ways in which the Gov...

RAILWAY FROM SYDNEY TO GOULBURN. The Sub-Committee appointed by the General Committee, on the 6th February, 1846, to collect detailed information on the extent of traffic between Sydney and such parts of the interior as might be deemed eligible for railways, have agreed to the following REPORT: The first matter which engaged our atrention was to decide upon a line of toad having the greatest traffic, free from the competition of water communi cation, and opening the most fertile end populous district. With these objects in view, Goulhurn appeared -to us to present the most eligible terminus; and it is therefore to the southern line of road that this report alludes, without intending, however, in the slightest de gree, to infer that this line alone pos. sesses the requisites for profitable rail way investment. The next point to determine was, whether the route to Goulburn presented any serious engineering difficulties. Several professional gentlemen, civil engineers, incloding Mesrs ...
