DEFEAT OF THE RUSSIAN ARMY IN CIRCASSIA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 23 May 1842

DEFEAT OF TIHE RUSSIAN ARMY IN CIRCASSIA. CONST.ANTI'OPLE, DEC. . - Intelli gence has been received, by way ol l'rebizond, of a victory gained by the Circassians over the Russians, the most signal and decisive, it is said, that has occurred since the beginning of the war. A large expedition, consisting of 30,000 men, had been disembarked on the coast, with a view of destroying the grain, which had been collected by the Circassians after the harvest, when a storm, having suddenly arisen, drove the ships from their anchorage. The Circassians, availing themselves of the opportunity, assailed them fiercely on every side, and the IRussians, separated from their stores, which had been car ried out to sea, were compelled to com menoe a disastrous retreat through a country consisting entir:ly of mountain forest- and defile. With the exception of 2,000 who escaped to Anapa, the a hole of the 30,000 were killed or made prisoners. Such are the accounts from Trebizond. Further details of this t...

REMOVAL OF MR. FENWICK. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 23 May 1842

REMOVAL OF MR. FENWICK. The stupidity and obstinacy of our Police Magistrate have i creased to such a degree of late that his continuance in office can no longer be tolerated by an intelligent commulity. We ? state this, our firm. conviction, " more iii sorrow than iti anger." The steps that must be taken to_ bring about his removal will be of a very- dis agreeaole nature, but a sense of public duty ought to outweigh all personal cobsiderations in a matter 'of such vital importance. We refrain from any invective upon his last week's conduct, in the hope of being able to report progress in a more satisfafctory marinerini our next. Our report of the police proceedings does not require the aid of illustrative remarks.

TUESDAY, MAY 17. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 30 May 1842

TUESDAY, MAY 17. The Bishop laid before the Council the congratulatoty addresses on the birth' of a prince. On the motion of Mr Jones the'ad. dresses were adopted. The Governor then presented a series of documents on the subject of immigra. tion, from which it apneared that durinm the last eighteen months 26 406 immi grants had been introduced under the Bounty system, in addition to 5000 whha had arrived withdut assistance from :go." vernment. Since 1838, 60,000 persons' have been added to our population by immigration alone, at an expense ap. proximating £800,000, an expenditure for this object, which, taking the extent and population of the colony into account, is altogether without a parallel in the history of English colonization. In comparison with Canada, the actual condition of our revenue pre sented a very favorable contrast. The annual revenue of the United Provinces of Upper and Lower Canada in 1841, according to a despatch to which his Excellency referred, amounted only t...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 30 May 1842

T'he great length and importance of our digest of the proceedings in the Legislative Council, precludes the ne cessity for any lengthened remarks upon the various exciting tonics of the session. The speech of His Excellency is " plain and to the purpose," and we entirely coincide with the opinions therein expressed, although we are by no means disposed to give Sir George credit for a greater d-gree of honesty than is usually possessed by pub.ic men. We approve of his arguments and measures, because his liue of policy is identical with the interesls of the community. In another column will be found the Police and Public Works Bill at full length. The Geelong committee for the consideration of this bill meets this evening, when the merits and defects of the measure will no doulbt he fairly dealt with.

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 30 May 1842

NEW ZEALAN D. IMPORTANT DISCOVERY OF COPPER MINSF., - At the Island- of Ates, (Big Barrier,) there has been discovered ex tensive mines of rich copper ore. To work these mines, a preliminary meat ing was held .at Wood's Hotel, for the formation of a com;.any. About a dozen practical miners from Cornwall and Cuba, alter a month's labour at the Big Barrier, have certified that the ore contains a larger per centage of metal than any they ever saw. Dr. Johnson, who has smelted some of the ore, be lieves the quantity of metal is fifty per cent. It contains, also, a quantity of cob:lt. which renders it much more valuable. We have seen nearly half a ton of the ore, including various speci mens, blue, red, and peacock or varie gated. The mine extends for about eleven miles. It commences below high water mark. It is not more than fillty miles from Auckland, and only four miles from Port Abercrombie, one of the finest in New Z.Zaland. We believe sincerely that now, is the time for a really lu...

LABOUR AND CAPITAL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 30 May 1842

LAnoU A.ND CAPITAL.-The introduc tion of these two essential elements of wealth, is anxiously looked for by every friend of the colony, and they cannot be introduced too extensively, if a due pro portion exist between them. The people of England are equally inter ested in the matter, and are. as anxious to afford us the supply as. we are to re ceive it. The migfation of her super abundance of human beings,-even to the amount of millions, would be a positivei good to whole mass; whilst the abstrac tion of capital would be almost imper ceptible, and the sum would be returned with interest in a short series of years, through the reciprocation of inter national wealth. The truth of these propositions daily becomes more appar ent, and must quickly lead to a practical demonstration, on a scale of unprece dented magnitude. The friends of .?s'"colony resident in England.. altiou-t iiot a numerous, ate an inifluential body, and we are happy to learn, from letters received here, that they are...
