THE LATE MR ROBERT MORRISON, THE CHINESE INTERPRETER.-We have been furnished by a correspon dent, says the Manchester Guardian, with some particulars not generally known, respecting this lamented in dividual, to whom Sir Henry Pot tinger so pathetically alluded at the public dinner on Friday last; and of whom, when in China, Sir Henry publicly declared that his death was a national loss. Mr Morrison, who died about a year ago (soon after the return of the expedition), at the early age of 28, was the eldest son of the late Rev. Dr Morrison, a missionary in the service of the London Mis sionary Society, the translater of the Bible into the tChinese language, and a compiler of a Chinese die. tionary; two works which rank amongst the greatest literary achieve ments of modern times. He also accompanied Lord Amherst on Ihe embassy to Pekin, some years ago. His son Robert, when very young, was sent to Leaf Square Grammar School, Manchester, under the su perintandence of the Rev. John Cluni...

EXTRAORDINARY MODE OF BREAKING IN A HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 June 1845
.Ir'tA.ORDINARY MODE OF BR$AKI lNG-I.N A I'ORASE.-A traveller, in every respect deserving of credit, re turned from South America, gives the following almost ipicredible mode of breaking-in the Aild horse, by the Llaneros of Vtnezuela :--When they wish to procure a horse they drive together a herd, each selects one out of it which he prefers and nooses him with. the lasso. Two or more men hold the line firmly until the horse flls from actual strangulation by the halter which is tightened round his throat by his own Violent efforts to escape, while, at the same time, he receives re peated stunning blows on the head with a bludgeon, which is used unsparingly during the first stage of horse breaking. WVthile the animal is insensible they tie their legs, put a headstallon him with a moveable strap, by which the eyes can be covered when necessary, and tm mediately saddle him. TIhey first use a hair rope by. way of halter, as the borse cannot for some time endure a bit in his mouth withou...

MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 June 1845
MISCELLAN A. The Countess d'Oultremontb widow of the late King of Holland, passed through Mentz, a few days ago, with a numerous suite, on her way to Italy. The Bishopwearmouthl, Iron Compa ny, at Sunderland, and Messrs. Bole kow and Vaughan of Middleborough Iron Works, are the contractors for 6,000 tons of rails, required by the Great North of England Railway Com pany, at £7 15s per ton, which is a considerable advance on the prices lately obtained. A grand ball, under the patronage of several Roman Catholic families of distinction, is to take place on Tues day week at Manchester in aid of the funds of the M,nchester and Sitlferd Roman Catholic Female Orphan Asy lum. The Paris Commerce announces that the French government has concluded a second treaty of commerce with the Belgian government.

PRESIDENT TYLER'S MESSAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 June 1845
PRESIDENT TYLEBt'SMESSAGB. The speech of the King of the t'rench, and the message.of the Pro sident of the United States of America, are characteristic speci linens of the genius of a tmionarchy and of a reprblio. The one, pompous, vague, and epigrammatio ; the other, diffuse, pedantic and circumstantial, also notdevoid ,of an air of arrogant boasting, and unpolished rudeness, which the more astute diplomacy of E?rope never exhibits. With regard to French party po Jitics, they are a .subject in which the rest of the world feels but slight interest; first, because the parties and oprincipals of the Chamber of Detuties are neither marked by any piomiinent statesmen, or great aris tocratic names, representing terri torial, or, class interests; and, se condly, because the limit within which the bulk of the French middle class representatious have oscillated, since the reyolution of 11130,. is a very narrow one. It nmay be safely lprophtsied that the electors of France, who hold the repr...
THE FRENCH CONQUESTS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 June 1845
T?EE FRENCh CONQUESTS. The Constitutionnel has a long and rather temperate article upon the r. ported addition to the French Pro tectorate in the Pacific of the Wallis Islands-an acquisition which it truly contends will either involve France in a serious misunderstanding with this country, or produceonly a repe titionof the disavowals and "humilia tion" which followed of the Tahiti conquest. All theseeyils, adds the Constitutionnel,- are the more emi nent, as the Wallis Islands lying nearer to Australia and New Zealand than Tahiti does, the interests of Great. B13ritain are more nearlyin volved, and the opposition both of the English Government and the missionaries will be more violent. It is moreover suggested that the islands in question are included in AMi Pritchard's consulate, and, that'the French. authorities will therefore find themselves once more in pre sence of that formidable personage.' -Times, Dec. 16.
ATTEMPTED ASSASSINATION OF THE DUKE OF NORMANDY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 June 1845
ATTEMPTED ASSASSINATION OF TIlE DUKE OF NORMANDY. Great sensation was excited on Friday in Fulham, in consequence of a diabolical attempt on the previous night to murder Charles Louis ide Bourbon, commonly known as the Duke of Normandy, who is at present residing at Mulgrave House, King's road, Fulham. The " Duke" professes to be the son of Louis XVI, and Marie An toinette, and consequently the le gitimate heir to the throne of France. I-s life has been twice previously attempted; once before leaving France, and on the 10th November, 3838, in the garden of the house lie then occu pied on Camberwell Green. On that occasion two pistols were discharged at him, and three balls entered his person. Our reporter having become ac quainted with the fact 6f the present attempt, proceeded to Mulgrave -Hoiiuse, and was enabled to-collect the followinrigu?thenticparticulars:-- An ot?der. had been recently re ceived for the manufacture of some machinery .of a peculiar, character, and.the Duike of...
ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 June 1845
ENGLAND. SIR. HEny POTTINGER.-The town of Liverpool has done itself honour by the spirited manner in- which it hasu done honour to this gallatint oflicer and able diplomatist, who so thoroughly realised the intentions of the Melbourne Administration in the important task as signed to him in the Eastern world; The particulars of ,the interesting pro iredings will tiUe found in another page, andti will repay the perusal of all who partake of the grateful feeling so warmly entertained towards the distins guished object of the public attention, who must have been highly gratified by such a reception as he has ex, perienced in this emporium of com merce. Everything was as it ought to be, that is, if one extraordinary circum utance only were explained-namely, why in the name of common sense., con sistency, or anything else that is intel ligible, were Lord Sandon and a certain set of Liverpool merchants present at the dinner, when it is notorious that they never in their lives did one thin...

ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 June 1845
ACCIDENT.-.V'e regret to state that Mr Addis, our commissioner of crown lands for the county, met with a serious accident, yesterday, by a fall from his horse, while crossing the Barrabool Hills, in consequence of which his shoulder was dislocated, and hlie was otherwise severely bruised. We have in our present number devoted a considerable portion of space a discussion on the relative merits of English andti Colonial horses, now being carried on in Launceston. As neither of the dis putants deny the correctness of each others statement of times and dis tances, we may fairly infer that the compilations are correct, and they will therefore be valuable for re ference in any other comparison of speed that may be hereafter insti tuted.

HOBART TOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 June 1845
HOBARI TOWN. RICHARDSON V. ARMYTAos.-The protracted arguments in this case ter. minated on Saturday last, which day had been specially appointed for the purpose, but the court has not yet given judgement. The subject prine pally under the consideration of the court on Saturday appeared to be whethter there ought not to be a new trial, on the ground that the late ver. dict was defective in not deciding two material points, mamely, whether the letters which the juryifound to have been written by the plaintiff justified the language used by the defendant respecting them or not-and whether a plea of justification imputing other improper conduct had been sustained or not. THE " SHAsiROCK.''-Some wreck has been found in Tunnel Bay. near Wedge Bay, Tasman's Peninsula. A Towel marked " Cecil Byron" has been found. Mr Byron's effects having been shipped in the vessel at Launceston, leaves little doubt of the wreck being that of the cutter Shatm rock. She was last seen off Cape Raoul about a ...
REVIEW. The present State and Prospects of the Port Phillip District of New South Wales. By CHARLES GRIFFITH, A. M.—Dublin : WILLIAM CURRY, Jun., and Co., 1845. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 June 1845
REVIEW. TA? present State and Prospects of the Port Phillip District of New outh ltWales. By CHARLES GRIF FITH, A. M.-Dublin: WILLIAM CURRY, Jun., and Co., 1845. (Prom the S3dney Herald.) A small work, entitled as above, has reached us by the last packet. The author in his preface states, that his " principal object has been to lay before the British public, an unbias sed picture of Australia Felix, both as regards its physical and social state, in order to enable them to form n judgment as to its eligibility as a field for Emigration." And we must at the outset do the author the jus tice to say, that his statements are not ex.ggerated, that although in terested as he states, only in the Port Phillip District, he has abstained throughout his book from those allusions to by-gone days and from the mistatements, to say the least of them, in which Port Phillip writers almost invariably indulge, in order to decry the parent colony, New South Wales, or rather the Sydney Dis trict; and alt...
FREE PORT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 June 1845
FRE? PORT. Now that a revival in the Ship ping trade has taken place, the res trictions upon the port of Geelong begin again to be very injuriously felt. As an instance, the David has been detained in harbour three days before being allowed to break bulk, the captain having been compelled to pass his entries at the Melbourne in stead of the Geelong Custom House. And we have been assured that regu lar traders would be started to and from Sydney and other colonial parts, if the odious restraints were removed. The hindrance to which vessels are here subject, is so serious that the rate of freight must necessarily be enhanced, and in some instances it is found cheaper to export goods, via Melbourne, than to ship them in a vessol sailing direet, Surely, as t matter of policy, if not of justice, the government should immediately remedy this great grievance.
