MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 June 1845
MELBOURNE. " It is gratifying to observe, that the inhabitants of Melboarno are not again possessed with the mania for land specun Iations. Out of the fifteen allotments offered .yesterday,. only three were pur, chased, and those in the-county of Grant. The land occupied by Mir Italeigh, under a squatting license, and which had been improved by that gentleman to a con siderable extezlt, and, therefore, put up for sale at the modest upset price of 920 per acre (its utmost valuo:boing 50Ls) was no; purr hased, neither were the other ,suourban sectious, for. which £5 per acre,j upset,~ were demanded. The attempt to deprive Mr Raleigh of his land or to compel him to purchase at such at, exorbitant price, we are glad to say, has most signally tailed; in a maoral point of view, it was little better than an at tempt to pick his pocket. It is to be hoped that the hint will be taken by Sir George fipps-that all attempts ts prevail'updn the inhabitants of the diss trict to purchase land at an...

The day of meeting of the Legis lative council "forglispatchl of busi ness" has 'at lengtf been fixed-the 209th day of July being the time appointed for that purpose. It is not supposed, however, that the Governor "has received any despatches of a definite nature, or that lie has deter niined upon any unalterable line of conduct; but rather that he will enter upon the campaign with a 'watchful observation of his enemy's mniotions, and lay his stratagems ac sordingly. FoSSIL RgsauINS.-We have been favored by Mr. Menzies, with the inspection of a petrified bone, found .on the shores of Lake Timboon, to the wesrward of Lake Colac. The bone is apparently tile head of the tibia, or lower joint of the knee; the articu lating surface is as distinct and com plete as if the bone had never under .gone the petrifying process; the frac ture where the shank of the bone has been broken, is also very little ehanged in appearance, and displays the double channels of medullary mnatter which are pecu...
PROGRESS OF CONTINENTAL SPORTING. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 2 July 1845
PROGRESS OF CONTINENTAL SPOTING. Two clrcumstances Iiave occurred within the last few days wh'ch show how greatly and rapidly the taste for field sports and the pession for the pleasures of the chase are increasing among our continental neighiiboure. In the first place, a sporting club hIas jnst been formed in Paris, to which the most illnatriouo Nimrods of the capital and of the provinces have become members. It is intended, above all, to celebrate, by a grand annual banquet,. the fete of Saint Hubert, the pa tronymic saint of the chase. The first annual festival took place a few days ago; the celebrated restaurant's (Vefour) .saloons were appropriated to the purpose. The company was numerouo and distinguished. The table was most magnificently served, and thle company did ample justice. The centre of the table was orna mented by a beautiful stuffed stag, of the largest breed and enormous antlers, lent from the museum of the Jard n des Plants for the occasion; this niagni ficent qua...

MEILBOuRNE POLICE COURT. CoNs-rrIIACt AGAINST Trit PUBLICANs MAYOR'S DECISION, A memorial was on Saturday last pre sented to the Licensing Magistrates from thirty publicans of this town, complain, ing of the conduct of some of the con stabulary, and praying for no inquiry. This inquiry was held on Wednesday last, and I have now to announce my deci-ion. I stated, on WVednesday, that the in quiry asked for was instituted by me as the Police Magistrate of this Town, and that Dr Wilmot had at my request, kindly consented to assist me in that in quiry. In the decision at which I have arrived, I am glad to say that 1 have his entire acquiescence. Tile charges preferred ?n that me morial were against Se-jeahtts Swindle ad Corry, and donstables Sinclair, Tomkins arid Faser, and were in effect that they conspired together by means of false representations to entrap the pub licans into a breach of the Licensing Act. On the part of the memorialists, evi. dence was adduced to support these char...
INSOLVENT COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 2 July 1845
INSOLVENT COURT. On the application by H.G. Ashhurst for his certificate, the Chief Commis sioner delivered the following :--luch stress has been laid on the Insolvent having concealed from Henry Smith for so longa period the sale of the sheep and cattle stations to his father, until he finds himself insolvent. Hle induced Henry Smith, to write on the 8th April to Alexander Smith, managing clerk of the house of Smith and Sons of Liver pool, a statement of his affairs and to propose a composition, in which letter the sheep and cattle are made to appear as available assets for the benefit of the creditors at large; however, it appears Smith was aware that Ashhurst expec ted that that sum should be paid in full out of the assets of the estate; he says in that letter the sum borrowed in England, viz., £4000, Ashhurst says must be paid in full." Henry Smith admits also having been made aware on the 9th April of this bill of sale before he left Melbourne. Again, we find in a letter from I...
