BUSH FIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Intelligencer — 9 January 1852

SFYuDIUA MORNING, JAN. 9, 1852. BTrsF FrIrs.-The fear of destructive bush fires this year, is fully as well war ranted as Ist year. In many respects the danger is more imminent. It is idle to talk of what the farmer should do when he lias not hands enough to take the crop off the ground. There will be no laboaE available, except for immediate requirement from day to day. Should tires originate, they will ran their de strctire course with little opposition. W'e .re exceedingly sorry to hare to re corI the first disstrous occurrence of the kind, this -season. Two days ago, there was a destructive -fire near the old rase'cours, on the road to Bates's Ford. Two'stacks of oats and barley were burnt to the ground, and some circumstances favor.the susp"iion that it was the work of an. incendiary. The fire seems to have reached the stacks from the leeward. It should" be remembered, however, that fire, whlie' tieind io:slight, creeps along the grass agaicnt te t wind; The carelessness ot cam...

(From the "Watchman", 11th August.) [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Intelligencer — 9 January 1852

(From the " Watel:man," 11th August.) There is going on ': warfare between the Imperial'. Treasury and the Pro. vincial Government respecting the cur rency of this country, and a new coinage for Canada. Our Legislature paced a bill last session on the subject. This bill received the sanetion of the Governor-Gcneral,and the banks through out the country had made preparations, by the expartation of silver and the im portation of cold, and in rariocs other ways, to enter upon its provisions on the 1st of January. - To the surprise of everybody the Imperial authorities, imna ginisn that their Canadian lads were stepping upon the Quen's toes-that is, wi thout a flure, interfering with the Royal- prerogtive- veted1 the bill, and thus placed' the commerce of the country in most serious dificulties. : TI' In spector-General of Canada, the lion. F'rancis Hincks, addressed two memro randas to " my lords," prototing against the interference, intinsaring in pretty clear terras that the Lords of...

ASSAY OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Intelligencer — 9 January 1852

ASSAY OFFICE. (Grom the " Sydney IeraiL?") T?.-RE are two opinions on this sulject " out of doors." The bankers say, leave us alone- a mint! the thing is absurd, and is only dreamt of by people who know nothing of banking and financial operations." On the contrary, there is a cond?derable number of porsons who think that our gold might he cenverrcd into coin and ingots, and so become ser viceable-the former for circulation in these colonies, the latter for transmission, in lien of bills of exchan-e to the East. Where competent authorities differ, it would seem presumptuous to oier an opinion.' We prefer, therefore, to give prominence, firt, to the Report of the Select Committee of the Legislative Council appointed to take evidence on the proposed Ass-y-office and iint; and, secondly, a letter on this very question, which has been published in an English newspaper called the "Watchmatn" from the correspondent of that journal in Canada. It will be perceived how vastly different are th...

GEELONG GOLD CIRCULAR. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Intelligencer — 9 January 1852

GEELONCr GOLD CIJtCt'LAII. WE are at last likely to have a gold field that will draw sone of the Mount Ale : ander diggers hitherward. It is now dc cided that a gold field exists on the Warly Yallock, within 50 miles of this town, a little time will prove whether it will be equal to Iasllarat or the lount. Some fair quantities have been received in town, represented to hare come from thence. The great drawback to some of the old digings will not be felt in the new locality, for some time at least, as there issaid to be a good supply of water close at hand. So many different opinions are ex pressed on the gold juestion, that it is impossible to conjecture the effect that the supply of gold from these colonies may have on the value of the metal even the best English authorities differ on the point. The grinding nature of the Bank transactions in gold here, acts very prejudicially on the interests of the miners and colony at large. There never was a more favourable opportunity than the...

POLICE OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Intelligencer — 9 January 1852

POLICE OFFICE.   Before Captain F. Fyans and Captain E. B. Addis.. James M'Kiuser was brought before the sitting   magistrates, charged with being drunk and dis-   orderly in the public streets on the previous evening. The deponent very reluctantly ad- mitted the impeachment and was fined 5s or two   hours imprisonment. A youth of the name of George Bassilet, ap- peared before their Worships to claim the right   of cancelling his alleged indentures, with Mr. George Kingsbury, the saddler and harness maker. Mr Kingsbury placed before the the magistrates the   indenture of apprenticeship, but upon inspection it was found that, the document had not been signed by a magistrate, the youth at the time of the engagement being destitute of both his parents. The bench upon this consideration ordered the lad to be discharged, and to go where he wished. The nominal indenture was cancelled as being null and void. &...

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL OF SWAN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Intelligencer — 10 January 1852

THE LEGISLATLVE COUNCIL OF| SWAN RIVER. TIE Legislative Council has assembled for a supplement::ry session. His Excellency opened the session by an extempore address, and adverted to the novel but gratifying position in which he was placed, in having to place beforet them a supplementary estimate for the current year, amounting within a few hundred pounds to the sum originally voted for the service of the year. That amount had been fixel in March, 1850, at which time, although it was known that the colony was to be made a penal settlement, it had not taken place, and we were ignorant as to what effect the change would have upon the in terests of the colony. The results had been far beyond what had been expected, and that rid the case of the anomalous appearance of a supplementary estimate almost rivalling the original amount. He now estimated that the revenue would amount at the close of the year to nearly, if not quite, £20,000. He had received a dispatch from the Home Government, ...

CONVICT ARRIVAL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Intelligencer — 10 January 1852

CONVIC f A tRRVAL.. Os 20th July, 1847, Sir William Denison laid on the table of a nominee council the tles patch of Earl Grey announcing that transpor tation to this island had ceased. " I take;' said his excellency, in the most truthful and pionus strain of diction he could assnme, " the earliest opportunity of laying before you the decision of her Maojesty's government, that transportation to Van Diemen's Land should not he resumed at the expiration of the two rears for whielh it has already been discontinued Her Majesty's sovernment, in coming to this dtermination, has acted in accod:anue with the expressed wishes of a large proportion of the free inhabitants of the colony." [Here follows a prediction which was not realiseM.] "But," he continoe., "swhat the ulterior results may be can be hanrdly as yet forseen; and it would be al together out of place to speculate upon them here" (e-pcially one, and the principal, sr so Iaer)-" whether productive of prosperity or adversity."

SPECIAL CLEARANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Intelligencer — 10 January 1852

SPECIAL CLEARACEHs. - Some mis nulerstanding appears to exist upon this subject, and it is thought by many that every one desirous of leaving must ob tain a special clearance at an outlay of ive shillings. This, however, is not the case. 3lost of those who am condition ally pardoned, or are free by servitude, get special clearances, because having either neglected to obtain their cer tifie?tes, or lost thern, they would be liable to a strict examination at George Trewn, and perhaps detained if they had no other security than the general clear ance of the ship. The special clearance removes every difficulty, because it is a guarantee that the holder has satisfied the authorities that he is entitled to de part, and a personal description of the bearer is set out upon the document. But as those cannot obtain special clear ances whose names are on the ship's papers, persons preferring to pay five shillings rather than incur any risk are omitted from the general clearance and take out a ...
