Government Notice. The Chief Protector of Aborigines. AS no intelligence of the above officer, whe- ther official or otherwise, has been received at this office, since the time of his departure from Melbourne, ostensibly on one of his periodical visit to the tribes within the Port Phillip district, some time about the 24th of March last, the Su- perintendent would feel himself indebted to any resident of the District who would intimate, by a communication addressed to this office, where the above officer may have been recently seen, and what he proposed doing. This inquiry is made for considerations wholly unconnected with any fears respecting the Chief Protector's personal safety, of which, wherever he may be, no reasonable doubt whatsoever is entertained.

THE CRISIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 7 July 1846
THE CRISIS. SINCE the expiry of the Squatting Act on the 30th ult., the Sub-Treasury Depart- ment have refused to receive from the Squatters not only the assessment on stock, which every body knew must cease with the expiry of the Act, but also the license fee for the occupation of Crown Lands, which his'Excellency Sir George Gipps has de- clared again and again he has the power to exact without the authority of the Le- gislature, and would exact in the event of such authority being refused. Therefu sal is not an absolute one, the reason as- signed for not taking the money being that instructions on the subject have not been received from head quarters ; it is probable, therefore, that notwithstanding his Excellency's intimation to the Com- missioners of Crown Lands on the 3rd of April last, that they were not to consi- der their duties in respect to the granting of licenses for the occupation of Crown Lands, and the charging of fees on such licenses as in any way " affected by the ...
