Gipps Land Guardian, Friday, 22 nd February, 1856. EDUCATION.—MENTAL AND PHYSICAL. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 22 February 1856

c&tppg Etiuft (Snartimn, Friday, 22 nd February, :1856. EDUCATION'.—MENTAL AND PHYSICAL. In former articles wc liave endeavored to point out'the: duty, of parents iiureference to the education of their children, and the lamentable consequences which have, in too many instances,'resulted from their neglect in this particular. "VVe have also attempted to stimulate the young- to a vigorous pur suit of sound knowledge and practical learning for their own sake, in opposition to that superficial smattering of frivolous information which only excites vanity and conduces to no beneficial purpose. We have shewn how physical education may be united with mental instruction, and both be prosecuted simultaneously by a mode which we believe would serve to pro mote the comfort and well-being of the rising" generation and tend to the present •and future prosperity of the Colony gene rally. The method which we suggested was to have a piece of land, say not less than fifty acres, attached to ...

COLONIAL GOVERNMENT [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 22 February 1856

COLONIAL ar)VT)RN-Arv.iv'P The ilig'lit Hon. W. E. Gladstone, M.P., lectured before the Chester Mechanics' In stitution, on the 12th November, again taking the Colonies for liis theme. He proceeded to review the history of our Colonies, and the principles upon which their administration had been conducted at various epochs, this part of his lecture bearing a close resemblance to that de livered at Hawarden. Mr. Gladstone then proceeded to answer the . question, why are colonies desirable ?' and again asked, why is it that you rejoice in an increase of population at home ?r (Because an increase of population is an increase of power, an increase of ^strength and stability to the stfite and because it multiplies the number of people who, as we live under good laws, belong to a countivy: to which it isnn honor: and an advantage to belong. (Applause.)' What can be more to be desired than that? we should have the means"bf reproducing, in different portions of the globe, some thing as like...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Gipps Land Guardian. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 22 February 1856

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Gipps Land Guardian. Sir,—In March, last year, I was requested to take charge of u Gold prospecting party; the failure of which expedition is, by some parties, very kindly attributed to me, and am accused of having descried the party and left them to follow the bent of their own inclinations, either to fol low Hp the search for gold in any part of the world they chose, on their own hook, or dispose of the rations and implements left with them in any way they thought best for their own interests. in those days the " Gipps Land Guardian" was not in existence, and if a man wanted to publish facts or fibs ho was obliged to stick written pos ters on the trees for the edification of those of the public who might chance to see, and chose to read them;—your valuable paper lias superseded this primitive stylo of advertising, and you will greatly oblige me by letting the subscribers too the prospecting expedition know, through your columns, that I deny hav...

r * IMMIGRATION. Copy of Despatch from the Secretary to the 'Emigration. Commissioners, relative to the difficulty of obtaining- a suitable class of Emigrants. Emigration Commission, Park-street Westminster, 5th November, ISop. Sir,—-I am directed by the Board to ac quaint you that from various causes inclu ding- the improved'demand for labor in this country,, and the unfavorable accounts with regard to employment and a laborer's prospects in Australia, the Commissioners have found it impossible for some time past to obtain a proper proportion of Eng-lish and Scotch for their emigrant ships, with out lowering- the standard of character and class of the emigrants; a measure to which without the express direction of the colonial authorities," they would not think of re sorting-. They have been oblig-ed therefore to draw largely on Ireland, especially for females, in filling- the vessels despatched within the last six or eio-ht months. In no case, however, has recourse been had to work...

GENERAL VIVIAN AT KERTCH. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 22 February 1856

GENERAL VIVIAN AT KER.TCII. The journals of Marseilles and Trieste, apparently following- those of Constantino ple, describe tlie position of General Vivian, and the Turkish contingent under his com mand, at Kertch, as one calculated to awa ken anxiety. General Wrangle, it is said, has received reinforcements, and General Vivian has been compelled to send in haste for cavalry. Tims the, Courier de Mar seilles, of the 22nd instant, says:— "It was also rumored a few days ago, that the Anglo-Turkish contingent at Kertch was closely - pressed by General Wrangle. I have heard that some trifling engagements occurred between the ad vanced posts; but it appears that General Vivian considered his position so seriously menaced that he sent to Balaldava for a reinforcement of cavalry. The General, however, being- in the service of the East India Company, and as such, not authorised to command troops of the royal army, General Simpson refused to comply with his request, and the steamer despatch...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE OMEO DIGGINGS. [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 22 February 1856

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE OMEO DIGGINGS. [COMMUNICATED.] Every thing seems to be running on as smoothly as could be desired—population, now about 200, is on the increase, the fresh arrivals are principally from the Ovens, Buckland and Snowey Creek— the yield of the precious ore is not at all diminishing. Many parties who had left these diggings have returned, rendered al- most penniless by unfortunate schicers, horses lost, and other misfortunes. The average earnings of all working hands here is from 20s. to ½ 0z. per day the prospect is that things will become better as the country for miles is known to be auriferous. Steps are about to be taken to open a public housee on these diggings,   it will be a great accommodation to the mining population if effected. The Store keepers are well supplied with all kinds of provisions and slops, and their charges are not higher than at the Ovens. The new diggings at Swifts Creek are progres- sing very favorably, the sinking is not m...

Gipps Land Guardian, Friday, 29th February, 1856. IMMIGRATION.—GIPPS LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 29 February 1856

Friday, 29th February, 1856. IMMIGRATION.—GIPPS LAND. On Wednesday the 13th instant the Legis lative Council resumed the consideration of the Estimates for 1856, in reference to the Immigration Department. The Hon. the Commissioner of Trade ahcl.Customs' entered into a detailed statement of the Depart ment, and moved that £100,000 he remit ted to the Commissioners of Emigration, which with the amount already in their hands would pay for the introduction of about 700 statute adults every month till February 1857. He said it was intended that the emigrants sent to the Colony should he in the proportion of two females to one male, and that the deposit be re duced to £1 for males, lOs. for single fe males, and nothing- for married women or children. We are glad. to notice that the: very glaring indecency of shipping oft' single females, quite unprotected, for a voyage of 10,000 miles, has at at length been forced upon the attention of Government, and tli,it a slight improvement is to be...

THE OBSTACLES WHICH HAVE RETARDED MORAL AND POLITICAL PROGRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 29 February 1856

THE OBSTACLES WHICH T-TAYE RETARDED MORAL AND . POLITICAL- PROGRESS. - Lord John Russell lectured on this sub ject on the 13th November last, at lixeter Hall, before an audience numbering1 near ly 5000. The noblfl Lord-said, in ■ respect i to moral and political truth, we have to contend ag'ainst the jealously of, power, the empire of superstition, and the alarms of timidity. I will at once show you what 1 mean. The best commentary on Newton's Principia is written by Jacquier and Le Sceur,; two members of the Society of Jesus. Tliis commentary is so simple and complete that it enables a person who has but an imperfect knowledge of mathe matics to comprehend and' to master the sublime discoveries ,of Newton.' There was, however, a trifling, objection to the publication of this commentary. The Pope had by his decrees, forbidden any one to maintain the doctrine of the mo tion of the earth. .The learned Jesuits disposed of this difficulty very easily. They prefixed a notice to this part...

"TERRA INCOGNITA." [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 29 February 1856

"TERRA INCOGNITA." In the rare old days of English journalism, (when, from the scarcity of other reading materials, the newspaper pages were eked out with sundry chapters from the Bible), we find a certain early London printer, yeleped Master Muggeridge, in the habit of classing the news he obtained from Yorkshire under the peculiar heading of "Foreign Intelligence." The monster county of York, at present so great in manufacturing enterprise, was then, as Gipps Land is now, a terra incognita, though the boundaries of either are larger by far than those of many a petty kingdom 011 the continent of Europe—larger by far than the possession of many a sovereign whose dominions, if Cobbet maybe credited, could be "watered with a tea-pot." Then     in London, Yorkshire was looked upon as among "foreign parts;" now, in Melbourne Gipps Land is spoken of as a terra incog- nita. Who knows how far the future may carry out this curious analogy betwixt these foreign and ...
