MURDER BY THE BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 30 January 1841
MURDER BY THE BLACKS.--One of the aborigines, named Mumbowran, of the Barrarbool tribe, is now lying in the stone watchhouse at Corio, on sus- picion of having committed murder. A letter describing the culprit was for- warded, it seems, to Mr Seivewright, who caused him to be lodged in the watchhouse by stratagem. Mr S. sent him with a parcel to the watchhouse, notice having been previously given that he was to be detained. Although thus brought to the very door, he was with difficulty captured. He is a powerful young man and made a des- perate resistance. He planted his nails in one constable's jaw, and his teeth in the fleshy part of the arm, and held fast until he was almost benumbed by the blows from the other constables. Since his capture he has confessed that he assisted at the spearing of a black fellow, and afterwards ate his share of the body, but justified himself by saying that the black fellow whom they speared had murdered a white man just before. The murder alluded to ...

MISCELLANEA. CHARACTERISTIC DISPLAY OF NATIONAL VANITY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 6 February 1841
CHIAItACTERISTJC DISPLAY OF NATIONAL VANITY. We have been vastly amused with the following ebulition of egotism, which appeared in a late number of one of the; Parisian journalk, the title of which we have neglected to note. What is here said in good earnest of Paris, reminds us of the following well known bombastical couplet in Martinus Scriblerins: " Tie wonders of proud London to survey, The suli hlimself shall rise by break of day." PARIS. '" Athens was more polished, Rome more warlike,. London is more corn mercial, Pekin is more vast, but Paris is more homogenous. Paris has but a million of men, but, if need were, that million of men would be but one man. "6 London is the capital of England, Vienna of Austria, Madrid of Spain, Constantinople of Turkey, Home ol Catholicism; but Paris is the metro polis o: mankind. "Compared with Paris every other place is a hamlet, a little town, a village. Every thing ends in Paris toads, canals, and telegraphs. Every thing leaves and re-enters...

NON-EXISTENCE OF REPULSION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 6 February 1841
NON-EXISTENCE OF REPULSION. I do not recollect ever having met with any passage in any of the chamical writers, expressive of scepticism as to the existence of the power of repilsion ; neither have I ever met Hith any attempt to trace tre plje- Inornenorn of repulsion to any more remote cause.- It is taken for granted, as self evident, and even necessary, The consequelnces of my temerity in en tering upon this subject have been duly weighed ; but they are not sufficient to deter mie from the attempt, although they will necessarily infuse a cautiron into my bold ness, from tear of giving suffcieint grounds for treatiug these remarks as mere rhap sodies. There is a precedent int point, for doubt. ing the immrrtability of the attibutes with which Nature has been invested by MAN. Before the time of Torricelli there was a received opinior that "nature abhorred.a vacuum, and at the present day, amtnig the unlearned, water is supposed to be raised in a pump by ' suction.'

SCIENCE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GEELONG ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 6 February 1841
TO THE EDITOR OF TIIE GEELONG ADVERTISER. SIRt,-In compliance with your request, though at the risk of appearing presumptu ous, I send herewith a number of short sketches on scientific subjects, which I have compiled in a desultory manner during a long period of years. From our personal friendship. I have no hesitation in commit ting them to your care, to make suoh selec tions as you may deem worthy of publica tion. You will perreive that they 'contain many original views and new hypoiheehes, which I had hopes at one time of being enabled to follow up and to develop more completely; but ilthe more engrossing duties of every-day life, and a want of means and apparatus for the performance of newly ronceived cxperimentts, have quashed these ambitious hopes, and I now give to the world the results of many a night's te hard thinking," in the hope that they mtoay be of use to others possessed of the requisite time ;tnd opplortunity.
