MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 November 1840
MISCELLANEA. BAD THINGSs.—An unfaithful servant, a smoky house, a stumbling horse, a scolding wife, an aching tooth, an empty purse, an undutiful child. an incessant talker, hogs that break &nbsp; &nbsp; through enclosures, a dull razor, mos- quitoes, a fop, and a subscriber that won't pay for his paper.—New York Paper. A NEW BUSINESS.—There is said to &nbsp; &nbsp; be a woman in Centre-street, New &nbsp; York, who takes in children to wash, she gives them a good scrubbing with soap and sand, and then sets them up in the sun to dry. She washes at four shillings per dozen. AMERICAN SERVANTS.—I have been much amused with the awkwardness and nonchalant manners of the servants in America. Two American ladies, &nbsp; just returned from Europe, told me &nbsp; that shortly after their arrival at Boston a young man had been sent them from &nbsp; Vermont to do the duty of footman. He had been a day or two in the house when they ...
BIOGRAPHY. JOHN ELLMAN, THE CELEBRATED GRAZIER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 November 1840
BIOGRAPHY. &nbsp; JOHN ELLMAN, THE CELEBRATED GRAZIER. A memorial of JOHN ELLMAN will not unfold curious discoveries to the speculative philosopher, nor display stirring incidents to the lover of ex- citing adventure; but it will present a more useful, though less imposing prospect—the undeviating and suc- cessful devotion of all honest and honourable man to a pursuit, alike essential to the well being of the com- munity and the power of the state; but a full and complete life of Mr. Ellman must comprise a progressive history of English Agriculture during the last sixty years, for with every association or society formed for the improvement of cattle, the advance- ment of agricultural knowledge, and the reward of labouring industry, he was intimately connected, and from his exertions, indeed, most of them derived their existence. John Ellman, was born at Hartfield, &nbsp; in the county of Sussex, on the 17th day of October, 1753. His father, Richard, occupied a farm ...

MISCELLANEA. ADVENTURE WITH A SHARK. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 28 November 1840
1z:ScXELLANEA. ADVENTUttE WITFI A SHARK. FROM TOM CRI NGLE'S LOG. During the night we stood off and on under easy sail, and, next morning when the day broke, with a strong 'breeze and a fresh shower, we were about two Iniles off the Moro Castle, at the entrance of Santiago de Cuba. The fresh green shores of this glo rious island lay- before us, fringed with h bite surf, as the everlasting ocean in its approach to it gradually changed its dark blue colour, as the water shoaled, into a bright, joyouis green under the blazing sun, as if in sympathy with the genius of the fair land, before it tumbled at his feet its gently swelling billows, in shaking thunders on the reefs and rocky face of the coast, against which they were driven up in clouds, the incense of their sicrifice. The undulating hills in the vicinity were either clearedf, and covered with the greenest verdure that .imagination can picture, over which strayed large herds of cattle, or with forests of gigantic trees, from amo...

WRECK. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 28 November 1840
WRECK. Extract from a letter, dated Point Nepean, 19th November, 1840:— "I am under the painful necessity &nbsp; of informing you, that a cutter has been wrecked between this place and Cape Shank. There is part of the ves- sel, about two miles from us, but not the appearance of any human being; no doubt they all met a watery grave. The vessel must have been lost during the late southerly gales. It would seem that some of the crew took to the whale boat, as there are the re- &nbsp; mains of a man upon the beach. I have sent a letter, picked up, directed &nbsp; to a Mr. Wignell. It was in a small Indian cigar case, with a long lock of female hair. There were several news- &nbsp; papers directed to you. The vessels name is the Prince Albert. There is no appearance of a cargo." The letter alluded to is dated Sydney September 28, and the part to whom it is addressed may obtains it by ap- plication at the Gazette office. There were only four persons on boar...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 28 November 1840
TO CORRESPONDENTS. &nbsp; &nbsp; We acknowledge with many thanks the &nbsp; receipt of "Visitor's" description of the &nbsp; &nbsp; country between Geelong and Melbourne; but from the press of important matter at a late hour, we must defer its insertion until next number. If parties from the interior would favor us with notes or their experience &nbsp; &nbsp; they would confer not only an obligation on us, but make a valuable addition to Geo- graphical and Statistical science., We have received a file of papers direct &nbsp; from Demerara; as this is rather a rare occurrence, we shall extract largely from them in our next. We are happy to have &nbsp; it in our power to bear testimony to the efficient manner in which the Post Office Establishment is conducted. These papers were forwarded to our address in Sydney; the postmaster then despatched them to us in Melbourne, from whence they were sent after us to Geelon...

JUSTICE IN GEELONG. OUR FIRST TEN MINUTES IN THE COURT-HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 28 November 1840
JUSTICE IN GEELONG. OUR FIRST TEN MINUTES IN THE COURT-HOUSE. We had often heard of the gross manner in which justice had been outraged in this district previous to our arrival ; but we were determined not to believe it until convinced of the fact from personal observation. We endeavoured to make ourselves believe that the people were preju- diced ; and accordingly expressed our sentiments in favor of severity, and our determination to support the authorities in their administra- tion of the law in the most rigorous manner. Little did we think that the FIRST TEN MINUTES would set the question at rest. The following is a faithful report of the proceedings on Tuesday last. Mr Fenwick on the bench. The overseer of Mr Austin's station ap- &nbsp; peared against one of his men, who had been apprehended on a warrant, charged with having absconded. The overseer had made an affidavit to that effect before Mr Fenwick the police magistrate, on the pre- vious day. When the trial came on...
PUBLIC WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 28 November 1840
PUBLIC WORKS. The sum of twenty thousand pounds has been voted for buildings, roads, improvement of harbours, &c. in the province of Port Phillip. We hope that THIS HALF of the colony will have its due share of the sum expended on it. We must be watchful that the Melbourne people do not "come Sydney over &nbsp; us;" for they already show symp- toms of a rage for fine buildings, and have all along spoken of the grant of Council as if it were destined for the beautification of the southern metropolis alone. The Governor himself stated, that "public buildings &nbsp; were so much wanted IN MEL- BOURNE, that he would have granted a much larger sum, if they could find labourers to employ." We hope that his Honor the Lieutenant- Governor will bear in mind, that in Geelong we not only want what the Melbourne people, want, but also many things they have already got. Lest we should be taxed with un- reasonableness, we shall only make one request at a time. Our first, i...
LABOUR AS IT WAS AND AS IT IS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 28 November 1840
LABOUR AS IT WAS AND AS IT IS. The great want of the day, in this province, is, labour at a reasonable rate. The enormous sum of twelve shillings per day has been asked for merely digging ground for an orchard. The following are the rates of wages commonly given here :—Labouring men, as shepherds £30 to £40 per annum, and as much good food as they can consume; farm servants from £40 to £52 per annum, together with food and lodging; and mechanics gen- erally ten shillings per day. We hope that the Press in England will make the starving peasantry acquain- &nbsp; ed with the great and increasing de- &nbsp; mand for labour that exists in Austra- lia Felix, and some will surely venture here, to secure to themselves food, clothing, and wages, in lieu of being half starved and nearly naked. The following curious document will show. how matters stood in this respect twenty years ago in a sister colony :— &nbsp; "The undermentioned Magistrates &nbsp; &...
MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 28 November 1840
MELBOURNE. We have heard some startling rumours (which have even found their way into this peaceful district) regard- ing the honorable professions which some of the Melbourne Aristocracy are now following. Is it REALLY a fact that the illustrious trio of D. E. and P. have ACTUALLY turned publicans ? If so, we cannot help exclaiming, "Gold! &nbsp; &nbsp; thou art worshipped." The money-lenders too, we have heard are not lukewarm in their devotions at the same shrine. One of these blood- suckers boasts that he can get three shillings in the pound for a fortnight's loan of cash. This honest man seems determined to keep his mills well supplied with grist. As for the exquisite Exclusives of Port Phillip, although their buzzing may he rather annoying this warm weather, which is so favorable for the growth of such petty vermin ; yet we must be content to rub their bite marks with a little of the salve of patience, until a salutary shower or a searching southerly breeze sha...
FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 28 November 1840
FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT. Dust and dullness are just now the prevailing topics of our community, the former as distressing to the eye as the latter to the heart. "Nil desperandum" &nbsp; however, is the motto of Colonial en- terprise; a few rising clouds in the &nbsp; horizon betoken a change of weather, and the anticipated wool clip of the season will revive our drooping spirits. Amidst all the depression we are nevertheless not yet, inanimate,—the regatta, the concert, and the races are already acting as a cordial balm in effecting a restoration to a more cheer- ful state of existence. Besides which, anxiety is on the tip-toe to greet the arrival at the Clonmel, steam vessel, from Sydney, now momentarily looked for. Humour has already ascribed her non-appearance hitherto to the loss of &nbsp; a paddle box, or a blow up. You will have the advantage of in- cluding His Honor amongst your fash- ionable arrivals this week, as Mr. La &nbsp; &nbs...
