THEATRE IN GEELONG. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 June 1845
TUEATRE IN GEELONo.-The pub lic-spirited proprietor of the Mel bourne Theatre (Mr J T Smith) en tertains a serious intention of open ing a theatre in Geelong at the con clusion of the present Melbourne season, provided he can make arrange ments for the erection of a suitable building. His company of per formers is now, we believe, since the recent reinforcement from Launces ton, the most tompJete in the colony; and as the people of Geelong have ever shown themselves to he the wil ling patrons of merit, we may ven ture to guarantee, on their behalf, a hearty welcome to Mr Smith when ever he arrives.
ON THE SPEED AND BOTTOM OF AUSTRALASIAN AS COMPARED WITH ENGLISH HORSES. (To the Editor of the Launceston Examiner) [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 June 1845
ON THE SPEED AND BO'POW OF AUSTRLASI[AN AS CUMPARED WI'Ti BNGLISH HORSES. (To the Editor of the Laun:eston Exnnminer) SIR,-In the'columns of your paper six or seven weeks ago, my notice was attracted by a very interesting and cleverly written article, under the signature of' BHengallee,' on the above subject. tRepublished in the Geelong Advertiser lof 4th June.] Without presuming for one moment to impugn, further than is sanctioned by the laws of fair discussion, the method by which he has arrived at an opinion so decidedly unfavourable to the pretensions of the colonial horses, I feel confident that the point at issue, if properly handled, is capable of assuming a very dif ferent eomplexion; and it cannot fail to strike any one commonly cog nizant ot racing matters, how com pletely ' Bengallee,' in his string of calculations has overlooked the fol lowing all-important points for con sideratton; viz , comparative weightr science of training and jockeyship, degree of elasticity of tu...

RI PLY. S(To the Editor of the Launceston Exailhier) ,SIR -1 observe in your columnssof the 21st May a letter of some consider, able interest to the co'onial residents,, on the comparative merits of the.Tas. manian and English race.horses, written in reply to some remarks of mine of th ,.,March last, and signed " John B3ull.ý .' ..s My. object,, in replying to the Spinions ex?pressed in the letter signed Jlin Btull,' is to uphold the statement S ?wrpoteyou in March, that we hold too 1ighb an opinion of the Australian hors?s, com?paratively with the. English and that .,'aganini's performances this last ,racing season, were not " at a rate seldomi surpassed in England," and that despite ,of the figure statement in "John Bul's"' letter, the colonial horses areTfar short in both speed and stout nieus of the English race-horses. " John Bull" writes that" Bengallee' in his string of calculations has over .loked the following all-important points for c?nsideralion: comparative weight and ?...
PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 June 1845
PORT PHILLIP. We hear upon undoubted an thority, that some arrangement is in contemplation to grant Port Phillip her own revenues the attention of the Government has been drawn to this important subject by a moder ately written article in the Colonial Magazine for January, from the pen of a Port Phillip resident; if the English press wotIld pay a little more attention to colonial matters, we would get on!much better.---Gazette. TaUE CORPORArIoN.-InteIligence was received by the last overland mail, that his Excellency Sir George Gipps had declined putting upon the estimates for 1846, the sum of . 10,000 to be placed at the disposal of the Melbourne Corporation, as requested by that body. The reason assigned by his Excellency is, that Parra matta, Maitland, &c., would be enti tied to make similar claims to which he could not accede.- Patriot.

CLERICAL INNOVATIONS. AGAIN, and again,;fresh with every day's post, the signs of the comiiig tempest thicken upon us. 'I he laity seem at length resolved to act independently, and require of their pastors what they feel they have some right to assert for them selves.

REVIEW. The present State and Prospects ofthi Port Phillip District, of New . South WVales. ]3y CHARLES Gu.F FITis, A. M.-Dublin: William CURRY, Jun., and Co., 10456. (Continued.) The Author's opinions *i11, respect to 'the regulations of April,1844, are not quite orthodox, but although nrot a squatter himself, Mr Grifliuhs appears to be alive to the importance of the real question at isaue--the tenure. In April 1844, (subsequent to the author's departure from New South Wales,) a set of regulations regarding depasturing licenses, were published by the Government, which have excited a considerable ferment amongst the pas toralititerests in that country. Under these regulations, one license of ten -po~unds will not cover a station capable of containing more than 4000 sheep or 500 head of cattle, nor one extending over an area of more than twenty square miles, but in these and one or two other cases, a second fee of ten pounds is re cquired. It does not appear to ma that there is anyth...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Geelong Advert?er aid Squatters' Advocate. Sxm,-With reference to Fixity of Tenure, it by no means follows that because I am pleased at your having publicly enrolled yourself on the list of Squatters' advocates, I am desirous the result of the public discussion of this question should turn out favourably to the squatters, whether it does to the balony or not ;-certainly no, On tht contrary, 'tis neither mine nor theirs, but the public good which I am anxious to see secured. I rejoice that so great a question has come up for public de bate, because the colony is likely to be benefitted thereby; but I tremble, how ever, lest by any means that debate should be unwisely or unfairly tia inaged. I look upon it that all who engage herein, engage in the pursuit of truth. How necessary then, in order that the ' truth' may be elicited, that the discussion on both 'sides of the ques tion should be ably, and equally ably, conducted ! " This may, and no doubt...
AUSTRALIAN CHURCH AFFAIRS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 21 June 1845
KAUSTRALIAN CHURCH AFFAIRS. (From the Southern Queen ) There is scarcely one among the 19.000 newspapers brought from Eng land by the Amelia, which does not ad vert: more or less, to the questions of ritual observance, by which thie Church at home has been for some time agi tated. A subject on which, for mar riasons, we would rather have beer silent, is thus, in a measure, forced upo: our attention. In the gieater numbe: of these pacers the matter is treated with irrevetence and much sacrifice o' truth. They are filled with ignorant and impertinent comments upon the proceedings of our Bishops; while all that the Bishops themselves have said is carefully kept back. The best way then, we think, to prevent the evil that -mightarise from.this inundation of news paper theology, is to reprint some of the Bishop of Exeter's letters, as well as that of the Archbishop of (anterbury. - We have no doubt that our readers will iament, as we do ourselves, the grievous dissensions that are prevail...
