THE SQUATTER'S MEMORIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 13 February 1841
THE SQUATTER'S MlEMORIAL. The New Land Regulations have been issued by the Sydney Govern ment in such a reluctant, shuffing, slovenly, bungling manner, that their beneficial qualities are with. held, while there is no certain cheek upon their evil tendencies. 'Ihe special survey system, for instance, tnrestricted by protective regula tions, is capable of being much abused. A gentleman of the name of Dendy arrived by the York last week; he holds an order which entitles him to DEMAND a Special. Survey of eight square miles i?t st:y part of the territory not specially reserved. Some one of our wealthy equatters may have the finest part of his run, with all its improvements, pounced upon; or wg may have him down at Corio Bay, seizing a piece of land worth an hundred times the amount of the purchlase moony. The squatters around Melbourne have, on the spur of the moment, presented .a Memoria 'to 'is lHonor,,praying that th squattegs may have a priority of right :in pur chasing lands upon ...

THE PROTECTORATE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 13 February 1841
STHE PROTECTORATH. Mr Seivwrigh't, the Assistant Pro tector of Aborigines for this Dis trict, is fast acquiring an unenviable notoriety. W W do not allude to his dealings with the Blacks, l'or he haW 4jt' liceise 6.ir;'icie, to commit any abs'rdity or iniquity that he may fancy in that department.

MUMBOWRAN, THE ABORIGINE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 13 February 1841
MUMBOWRAN, THE ABORIGINE. This poor wretch has now been seven- teen days in the watchhouse at Corio, without any formal charge having been brought against him. During the greater part, if not the whole of this time, he has been in irons, and, it is said, fed on bread and water; he is kept in a cell separate from the other untried prisoners, thus having solitary confinement added to his other miseries. This has been a most atrocious affair throughout. He has been protected with a vengeance. The pitiful cries of the poor wretch often disturb the neighbourhood. Where are the Chief Protector and his Assistant? The latter, we are aware, &nbsp; visited the prisoner once; we know not what passed, except that the black roared with agony; and relapsed intio his first fit of terror, from which he was then recovering. He is one of the best-looking aborigines we have seen, young, well-formed, neat limbed, and &nbsp; of great strength; his behaviour has &nbsp; been such a...
