NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845

NEW ZEALAND (From the Sydney Herald) By the Comet intelligence from Wel- lington to the 24rd April, and Nelson to the 3d May, came to hand. The natives remained perfectly quiet, and the inhabitants do not appear to fear an immediate attack, although they are very prudently preparing block-houses,   and forming volunteer corps, which are being regularly drilled. The natives   still keep possession of land at the Hutt, which the Government has paid for; and it is expected that advantage will be taken of the presence of the soldiers at Wellington to remove them by force, which may bring matters to a crisis in that neighbourhood. We have made several inquiries of Settlers in the Hutt district as to the probability of the Natives going away, and many of whom we have not the slightest intention of leaving, and state that they are building new houses and show other unequivocal symptoms of staying where they are. Others incline to think that they are hesitating, an...

From the New Zealand Spectator. AUCKLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845

From the New Zealand Spectator. AUCKLAND. There has-been no direct intelligence from the Bay of Islands, since our last publication; but we learn by the way of Wangari, that the natives who did not take part in the affray at Kororarika are much displeased with Kowaiti and his tribe, and look upon it in a different light to that of Heki. There is much excitement among the natives, and some alarm as to the intent of Europeans, in consequence of so many English being killed at Karotariki. They fear that revenge will be taken according to their own customs, and that all the tribes in the north will be alike exposed to the vengeance of Europeans. On Sunday last, there arrived here 230 of the 58th regiment, with six field pieces from Sydney, in H.M.S. North Star, and the schooner Velocity. These reinforcements, with the excellent pre- cautionary measures of putting the barracks in complete state of defence,   —erecting block-houses in various di- rections,—and strong: patrole...

MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845

MELBOURNE. RACING.—The Races which we an- nounced in this journal of Friday, as postponed from Saturday until Monday, in consequence of the hunt, came off upon the Melbourne Race Course yesterday. Hack Stake of £3 from the Stewards of the Mel- bourne Races, entrance £1 added; catch weights; heats, one mile and a half. Three horses started with the following result:— Mr Lindsay's Black Jack.... 2 1 1 Mr White's Colonel ........ 1 2 2 Mr Ewart's Harkaway...... dist. From the heavy shower which had fallen, the course was heavy, and tried the power of the horses. The racing was good, and there was heavy betting upon the result. THE HUNT.—According to our an-   nouncement on Friday, there was a "meet" of Mr Pyke's hounds at the   Keiler Inn on Saturday last, about nine o'clock. The field numbered thirty-seven well mounted sportsmen, apparently determined to make a day of it, a bit of pink glancing out occa- sionally amongst them. The pack consisted of nine coupl...

HOBART TOWN SUPREME COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845

HOBART TOWN SUPREME COURT. WIGMORE v. THE LORD BISHOP or TASMANIA. — Mr Montagu, on behalf of the plaintiff, applied for a rule nisi calling upon the bishop to show cause why the plaintiff's license to preach should not be restored to him. We understood the learned counsel's argument to consist of a denial of the power of the bishop, supported by the absence of all pre- cedent, that such a course had been adopted towards clergymen since the time of Henry VIII., and the opinion of two learned doctors in ecclesiasti- cal law that such a power was objec- tionable. Their honors could not re- gard Mr Wigmore's case in the light of an incumbent. Here the church and glebe are in the hands of trus- tees, and the clergy are paid by the government, under a colonial act, which also gave the power of with- holding such salary. The license to preach being a license at will, the appointment being made to the indi- vidual under an opinion of his spiri- tual fitness, the bishop appeared to have the...

EMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845

EMIGRATION     It is is surprising how many will "hug their wretchedness and think it   bliss." Observe how obstinately the writer of the following "English Ex-   tract" clings to the belief that emigra- tion is a species of martyrdom! and only to be tolerated as a dernier resort, little better than hanging or drown- ing:— FREE TRADE MUST PRECEDE EMIGRA- TION. We know that, down to the most wretched classes, ' home is home, be it ever so homely.' But if circumstances which cannot be controlled force a removal from it upon the agricultural labourers, is a two or ten hours' flight by the railroad a harder lot than a six months' voyage upon the ocean?     a more cruel fate to be moved ten— twenty—fifty—or a hundred miles from the. village of their youth, to Man- chester or some other manufactoring town, with the certainty of a com- fortable house over their heads and full employment wherewith to clothe and fe...

EXTRAORDINARY PRESERVATION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845

EXTRAORDINARY PRESERVATION.— There is no protestant church in the parish of Roscrea, but the people have for some years, assembled in the lofts of a mill. They have been latterly trans- forming this mill into a church, but divine service was still continued there. On Christmas-day the congregation was unusually large, every corner filled   to suffocation, several hundred crowded together. Service ended; the sermon closed, and the clergyman having sat down in the pulpit (waiting until the people would separate, that the commu- nion might be administered) a crash like thunder was heard; then shrieks, groans, and cries of the most appalling nature—and lo! the greater part of the long loft on which the people were crowded, in the act of going out, was seen sinking ! A beam had given way and all—men, women, children, forms, rates, teams, commingled — were     tr shed inta Jn under storey, late'y ex cavsted, twelve feet deep, and covered with so res ...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. NEWS PER CUTTER ALPHA. SALE OF MINERAL LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. NEWS PER CUTTER ALPHA. SALE OF MINERAL LANDS. We have no recollection of any colonial event that has so much drawn forth the "note of preparation," or the local   excitement, as the Government Sale of Mineral Lands on Saturday last. The sale of these lands had evidently, if not avowedly, been delayed by the Government, in order to give time for fair competition; and its last act in reference to the sale, namely, the Gazette notice that the government did not pledge itself to put up the lots in the order implied by the proclamation, favoured the presumption that the au-   thorities were (to use a somewhat vul- gar phrase), as 'wide awake' as those   with whom they had to deal ; but the eventual, declaration of the valuable lot contiguous to Kapunda, as the first, the haggling about the undefined four- acre reserves for public roads ; and the   seemingly doubtful whereabouts of the vaulted minerals, fully confirmed t...

YORKE'S PENINSULA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845

YORKE'S PENINSULA.     A correspondent of the Register who has just returned from an excursion across the Gulf, which he performed in a whale-boat, supplied with a.fort- night's provisions, arms, and amuni-   tion ; and accompanied.by two boat- men with two semi-civilised aboriginal natives, gives the best description we remember to have seen of the coast   outline of that part of Yorke's' Penin- sula. The explorer and his party left   Port Adelaide on the evening of the 12th instant, reached the Light Ship at   10 p. m., and occupied a marine post   in its vicinity till day-break, when they hoisted their lug sail ; but being at length obliged to resort to their oars they reached the opposite shore after a long and fatiguing pull, the native fires being discernible at the distance of fif- teen miles. The appearance of the coast is described as "pretty, being   formed of cliffs abo...

PORT LINCOLN. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845

PORT LINCOLN. From the Adelaide Register. By the Governor Gawler from Port Lincoln, on Saturday last, we   have but poor accounts of the state of that settlement.   If the principal proprietors do not bestir themselves, we know not what is to be done to keep it upon its legs. That we speak not hastily on this   subject may be seen from the follow- ing letter which is only one out of two or three in Adelaide of a similar kind:     Having lately visited that ill-fated     district, Port Lincoln, to which the attention of some of the Adelaide for- tune-hunters has lately been turned,   but, it is feared, in vain, they seem to have been led into the quagmire of disappointment by following what every one but themselves knew to be an ignis fatuus: and, it is likely,     they return like the spies from the     promised land, with a bad ...

MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845

MELBOURNE.   NEW DISTRICT POLICE OFFICE.—   Why is this building unoccupied? The     District Magistrates have urged an ex-   penditure on certain improvements and now that a letter (in point of internal fittings tip) office than the Town Police Court has been prepared for them, they   are in no hurry to use it, and we should not be surprised if they never do. The same objection on the part of the dis- trict justices, with the exception of Messrs. Smith and Playne, to devote an idle hour or two to the duties of the bench still exists, and was not to be overcame by a new toy in the shape of a new police office, and with regret we say it, hut upon the strength of ex- perience, that the bench with the ex- ception we have above made, is seldom occupied but for a purpose; the truth of this has been so repeatedly proved, that we refrain from pointing out par-   ticular instances.—Standard.

LOSS OF THE TROOP SHIPS "BRITON" AND "RUNNYMEDE." [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845

LOSS OF THE TROOP SHIPS "BRITON"   AND "RUNNYMEDE."— Captain Nor-     ris of the Cecila, reports that on the 12th November last, the British ships Runnymede and Briton were wrecked in the Andaman Archipelago, by a heavy gale of wind from the eastward. The first was from England, the latter from Sydney, both with troops on board, bound to Calcutta. The passengers and crew all saved. The information was brought to Penang by Captain Paterson, of the barque Wigram, who spoke on the 1st January, the H.C. schooner George Swinston, on her re- turn from the wrecks, where she had been with supplies from Merguy, H.M. brig Woolverine being at Penang when the intelligence arrived, immedi- ately proceeded to the assistance of these unfortunates.— Le Mauricien,     34 h February." The Briton, Captain Hall, left Sydney for Calcutta, on the 15th August last, in company with the Royal Saxon, Enmore, and Lloyds which were also bound to ...

ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845

ENGLAND. THE principal domestic features of the week have been public meetings and proceedings in the Courts of law. The most important of the former was held at Liverpool, where Sir Henry Pottinger received a fresh tribute to the commercial and political services he ren- dered all Europe in negotiating the treaty with China. These marks of public appro- bation have been tardy, but their splendour compensates for the delay that has occurred in offering them. A meeting of the National Temperance So- ciety has been held, to consider what is to be done for Father Mathew in the embarrassed   state of his circumstances, and there appears to be every prospect of the adoption of some measures of substantial utility. It is to be hoped, however, that the error fallen into by the Irish Society, of allowing the subscribed funds to be swallowed up by an establish- ment of clerks and secretaries, will be care- fully avoided in England, for there is no greater check to public benevol...

CONVOCATION OF BISHOPS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845

"The humble Memorial of the Dean and Chapter of Exeter."   "May it please your Grace?— "Whereas it appears to your memori. alists highly desirable to put an end to certain diversities in the celebration of divine service, which now agitate and weaken the church, they most humbly and earnestly entreat your Grace, that you could be pleased to consult with all the Bishops in your province as to the best means of obtaining this object ; and for that purpose to procure their concurrence in some uniform interpre- tation of those Rubrics in the Book of Common Prayer which may seem ob- scure or conflicting, and in some uniform rule for the direction of the clergy with respect to certain fo...

DREADFUL ACCIDENT AT DRURY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845

DREADFUL ACCIDENT AT DRURY LANE THEATRE.—On Saturday night, December 14, a frightful occurrence took place at this theatre, during the performance of the Revolt of the Harem, which in its consequence will,   it is feared, deprive the stage of the best English dancer of the day. In the second act of the ballet the ladies of the harem are discovered bathing, among whom Zulica, the royal slave (Miss Webster,) is one. During the scene the gas placed at the bottom of the stage, or under the sunken portion of it, where the water pieces, or waves, are placed, caught the light drapery of Miss Webster's dress, and in an instant her whole person was enveloped in flames. This frightful event taking place on the stage in sight of the audience, the whole house was in a state of consternation, and screams issued from the ladies in the front boxes and pit, who were the first to perceive the ap- palling accident.   The unfortunate young lady rushed round the stage, actuall...

SELECT POETRY. MIKE LEARY'S SONG OF THE PRAIRIES. Dear praties, or murphies, or whatever name The 'larned may call ye, I love ye the same;   Ye're the roundest, the swatest, the best of all fruit, And I'll sing till I'm tir'd in praise of the root. Jist schrape them gintally when put in the pot, And take them up smoking, and at them quite   hot : And while on their beauties—my shoul is regalin', I'll loudly proclaim they require no repalin', Wid buttermilk—shure, for a prince they're a taste:   There's nothin' like praties, west, north, south or east: Swate fruit! while adown my pleased throat as ye roll, Be assured that Mike Leary, will ne'er charge ye toll. The gintles may talk of their fruit from afar, Of the grape of the pache, the apple and pear, But the pratie so manly,—the pratie is mine, May the pratie and shamrock for ever entwine.

MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845

MISCELLANEA. AN AMAZON.—Upon the conclusion of   the war, the most friendly feelings were evinced by the Chinese of all classes, as I have often mentioned, towards us, and in no place were they more so than at Amay. English pony-races and other sports got up by   the officers of the garrison were duly attended       by the mandarins, and interchanges of com-   plimentary visits were constantly made between both parties. Upon one occasion a   party of young Chinese gentlemen were in- specting the military barracks of the Royal   Irish. Of a sudden the harmony of their visit was interrupted by the cries and screams of   one of their number, who was seen flying across the barrack-yard, lonely calling for   help, pursued by no less fearful personage than a certain Meg O'Flanigan, terribly en deshabille—a second Molloey Maloney—     w...

Green skins are not to be pur- chased from the butchers, owing to all being contracted for; they are worth, if killed this month, 2s each. Freights are 1¼d. per pound, and the exchanges   at 1½d. discount. The market for all descriptions may be considered firm, and will continue so provided the ac- counts from London continue as ex- pected.
