AN ODD COURTSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 25 June 1845
AN ODD COURTSHIP. [We extract the following from a story in the Illuminated Magazine; the second chapter traces the career of a young Israelite from his primitive pursuit of a hawker of sponges, pencils, and pens, to the lofty elevation of a Portland Place capitalist. The character, it is said, is drawn from life; the Sentinel, in dleed, professes his ability-to identify the original :-] A dozen years have worn away, and the vagrant Jew boy is a broker, in the vicinity of the Royal Ex change. IHe dealt, according to the practice of his people, in money and securites- among the varieties of the latteor, of questionable security in deedt-in lottery schemes. At that time the lottery-oflice keepers were in the habit of purchasing tickets on their own account, to retail; and in the event of being put forward by the Government, our broker embracedr it with great spirt, and to an extent upon which hlis~instinctide prudence had never yet ventured. The day before thatappointed for the drawin...
MARKETS. SYDNEY WOOL MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 25 June 1845
MARKETS. SYDNEY WOOL bMARKET. THE settlers in many instances have, from the high prices that lambswool has deen fetching, adopted the plan of shearing the lambs, instead of letting it grow for hogget wool, and a few par cels have been sold, which fetched good prices. It is, however, a very speculative article, subject to greater rise and fall than any other descrip tions. The wool sales in London were to commence about the 10th Febru ary, and there was a good demand for all descriptions, particularly clean skin wool. Prices for foreign and English were ranging higher than in October, and the colonial wool sales were anxiously looked for to supply the demand, with every prospsct of a rise of Idl per pound above the last quotations.

WHAT WILL O'CONNELL DO? [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 25 June 1845
W?HAT WILL" O'CONNELL DO? This a a question which perhaps no body would be more puzzled to answer than that gentleman himself. In the meantime the following article has ap peared in the Dubling Pilot, the journal which is recognised as peculiarly Mr O'Connell's own mouthpiece : ' It is useless in us, Irish Catholics, to say .. that this rescript is uncanonical,, informal, and therefore can have no ,rifluence upon the priesthood; for, th.'ilgh they may not consider it a re gular or canonical document, they will regard it as a private letter of advice from the highest personage on earth, and cannot treat it with indifference. It will, in this light, be as effective as though it were strictly canonical. It is J.ot to be concealed, then that this re, script is an untoward event; and as the Irish people took no steps to prevent it, they have now only to bethink them selves of the best means to produce a reaction from the same quarter in their own favour. To this end they should at once d...
SANDWICH ISLAND INTERPRETER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 25 June 1845
SANDWICH ISLAND iNTERPRETER. The printer of the Patriot, Mr By land John Howard, has engaged to proceed to Hobart Town, to aot as interpreter to a native of the Sand .wich Islands, a witness in a most atrocious case of murder and viola tion, perpetrated by three men, a short distance from Hobart Town, upon the person of a Miss Saunders. Tue BORoUGH OF MBLBOURNE. The announcement of the Editor of the Courier (Mr W. Kerr) to stand for this Borough, in the event of there being, as anticipated, a dissolution of the Legislative Council, has called forth an appeal to the constituency from the editor of a rival paper, the Patriot, who yesterday boldly entered the field against the " worthy" Alder man. The editor of the Gazette, too, intends to try his luck this way; but considering that he implicitly relies on the votes of the squtters, who, un fortunately, have none to give, his chance is hopeless. Of course it is our intention to become a candidate; and as we have always taken the lead i...
ENGLAND. UNION BANK OF AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 25 June 1845
ENGLAND. UNION BANK OF AUSTRALIA. The governors and directors met on Wednesday, February 5 for the pur pose of confirming the resolutions agreed to at the last meeting of the board, which were to the effect that the 16th and 101st clauses of the deed of settlement should be repealed and certain other clauses substituted. The substance of the clause to be sub stituted for the 16th is that the pro prietors and directors are in future to meet on the first Thursday in July in each year, and upon such other days as they maythink fit. That of the one to be substituted for the ]Olst is, that the sum of £2000 be paid the directors for the year ending July 30, 1845. and that that be fixed as the sum to be divided amongst them at the end of each year in future as remuneration for their services. The chairman put the question upon each clause separately, and they were unanimously agreed to.

THE LAND SALE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 25 June 1845
THE LAND SALE. The government sale of Geelong Suburban Land thkes place this day in Melbourne. If the government get a single bid for any of the lots we shall be very much surprised ; for it must (and, we believe, is) acknowledged by the-governmnent Itself, that the fixing the upset price at £5 per acre, when land nearer the town was put up at £2, was, to say the least, a great mistake. It is a mistake, however, which they will not have the candour to rectify, and the consequence will be that many who would be willing to purchase will be disappointed, and the interests of the community will receive a blow from which, if the government pursue the same course in other instances, it will take some to recover.
SYDNEY. RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 25 June 1845
SYDNEY. RACEs.--On Wednesday, the 4th instant, a race came off on the old course, between Mr Seymour's HIIark away, and Mr Crowe's Ajax, two miles and two distances ; Ajax giving Harkaway sixty yards coming in; weight 8st. 10 )bs each ; and here again the odds were in favour of Harkaway, he being an aged horse, whereas Ajax is a more colt, just turned three years and rising four. Harkaway won the match, Ajax only coming in about three or four lengths a-head; allow the distance given, and Harkaway of course won. This match excited considerable interest, particularly on account of the favor able position that Ajax maintained throughout our late races. There were considerable sums laid on these horses, and much money changed hands on the occasion. There were two or three other matches, but of little importance.-Sydney Herald.
