VIDjowER SMITHI AND WIDOW JONE. -Widower Smith's wagFgon stopped one morning at Widow Jones's door, andi he gave the usual country signal that he wanted someblody in the house, by drop ping his reins and sitting double, with his elboDws on hiis knees. Out tripped the widow, as lively as a cricket, with a tremendous black ribbon on her snow vwhite cap. * Good morninlg' was soon said on both sides, and the widow waited Ibr whiat was further to be said. ' Well, Ma'am Jones, perhaps you don't want to sell one of your cows, no how, for no thing, any way, do you ?" 't Well, there, ,lr Smith, you couldn't have spoke my mind better. A por lone widder, like me, does not know what to do with so many critters; Ishould be glad to trade, if we could fix it." So they adjourned to the meadow. Farmer Smith looked at Roan, then at the widow, at the Downing cow, and at the widow again; and. so on through the whole forty.

THE UTILITY OF DISTRICT COUNCILS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 20 May 1846
THE UTILITY OF DISTRICT COUN cits.-It is exceedingly gratifying to us, who have stood alone in our advocacy of the District Council System, to learn that the only Council which has been allowed fair-play (that of Parramatta) has been completely successful, and that all classes of men in that district speak favourably of the system. At the meet ing for the election of Councillors on the 5th instant, the speakers who moved and seconded the nomination of the variolus candidates, gave fiull expression to such favourable opinions. The first speaker, Mr C. B. Lyons, said " Since tlhe Act of Parliament establishing Distridi Councils Shad come into operation, a great deal had been said against these bodies, but the manner in which the Parramatta District Council had worked, had answered all objections. The Legislative Council was jealous of this body, fiinding it had done wi h its limited revenue a vast quantity more than that body could have done with the same means, and it was for such re...
THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 20 May 1846
THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. S(From the Sydney Herald, Mlny 12.) His Excellency the Governor will pro ceed this morning to open the Legislative Council. Had the Jury Act and the Squatting Act had another year to run, instead of expiring on the 30th of June, it is more than probable that the Council would not have bleen called together until the arrival of Sir Charles Fitzroy, but as it is at present uncertain when Sir Charles may arrive, Sir George Gipps has once more to meet the representatives of the people. It is uniderstood that the Governor will propose to the Council a continuation of the present Squatting Act for another year, and it requires very little consideration to enable any one to predict that the Council will refuse to pass a Bill for such a purpose. To the Imperial larliament has the Governor applied for powers, which, by aIl the principles ofthe British constitution, can be ohly legally given by the,reprcsen tatives. of the people of the colony;-and with the-powers thu...

QUARTER SESSIONS AND CIRCUIT COURTS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 20 May 1846
QUARTERI SESSIONS AND CIRCUIT CouRTs.-The attention of the govern ment must frequently have been drawn to the ' necessity of' nialkiig provisioi for the establishment of.Quarter Sessions or Circuit Courts at Geeling and Portland. The'great ineonvenience and injustice of compelling the attendance of hosts of witnesses, (sometimes, as in a.recent case at Portland, including. the wlble police force and magistracy) has all along been deeply fell; but as the amount of al lowance to witnesses was very insignifi cant, he inconvenience of individuals was considered ia secondary matter to government 'econ-my. 'The increase of criminal ca'es, however, consequent upon the rapid increase of population must soon remove even Ihi untenable excuse for the continuance of the evil.
