No Title [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 2 July 1845

Convinced as we are that it is by the agitation of opposing arguments, that correct views can be best ar rived at, we have great pleasure in publishing the preceding communi cation, and shall now proceed to offer such remarks on the topics embraced therein as are required by the im portance of the subject, and the able manner in which our correspondent has advanced his own views. It is a privilege possessed by edi tors, although not exactly in accor dance with the rule, of fair-play, to reply to the arguments of a contribu tor in the same publication in which his communication appears. The advantage thus obtained, however is a matter for the reader to take into consideration in passing judgment upon the soundness of the cause espoused by each party respectively. And the custom has this much to re commend it, that it puts it beyond the editor's power to misrepresent or garble the arguments of his opponent; while, whatever advantage is en joyed, can only be of use when the cause of th...

CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 2 July 1845

S CORRESPON DENCE. To'the Editor of the Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate. SIR,-I do you the justice to believe,'that in your character of Squatters' Advocate your purpose is honestly and independently to endeavour to procure and main tain for the Stockholders such privileges only as they may justly claim, without prejudice to their fellow colonists now here, or who may hereafter arrive, and that it is neither your wish nor intention to be the blind advocate of every ex travagant demand to which their self interest mny induce them to lay claim, and to which they may, ignorantly or erroneously, consider themselves entitled. Your advocacy on such terms, would be inconsistent with the high character as a journalist you have always maintained, and have so justly merited ; and I am, there fore, induced to make a few obser vations in reference to the subject of the claims made by the Squat ters as connected with the interests of the rest of the community, feel ing assured that yo...

WRECK OF THE MARY, SEVENTEEN LIVES LOST. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 2 July 1845

WRECK OF THIE MARBY, SEVEN TEEN LIVES LOS T. (From tile Sydney Herald.) BRY the steamer Shamrock we have received the distressing intelligence of the total wreck of the barque Mary iaptain Newby, from Sydney to London, and the loss of seventeen of her passengers. WVe have before us a letter from Captain Newby, and theefore the particulars we give I.e!ow may be depended upon as au Ihtntic. The Mary left Sydney for London (wiih a valuable cargo, and a total of crew and passengers of fifty-nine souls on board) on the 19th May. It was the intention of the owners that the Mary should proceed by the ordinairy route round Cape Horn, which is in fact the only one that can be considered practicable at this season of the year, when westerly winds are so prevalent. The Mary stood away to the southward, but when she got ofi Cape Howe, the wind being at east-south-east, and "the aspect easterly-wind-like,"Cap tain Newby determined to attempt the westerly passage, for " although it was not a prom...

THE SYDNEY DISTRICT COUNCIL'S DILEMMA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 2 July 1845

THE SYDNEY DISTRICT COUNCIL's DILEMMA., (FTom the S??rdoey Atlas.) Every one with whom we have conversed respecting the alteration of the Charter of the Sydney District Council, admits, that the Governor had no power whatever to makie that alteration, and that having once executed that docu ment, he had no further control over it. But some persons, while making this admission, contend nevertheless, that the alteration does not, as we say, make the Charter void, but is simply a nul.. lity, and consequently in no way varies the limits of the Corporation as originally defined. Assuming this view of the case to be correct, (and it must be correct if the Char ter is not void) it then necessa rily follows, that the eight elected members of the Sydney District Council have been improperly re turned, and that all tile acts which have been done by that body'since the first election, are illegal and void, because the greater portion of the constituency, that is to say the whole of the elector...

THE CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 2 July 1845

THE CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. OUn dates from the Cape of Good Hope are-the 2nd of May from Cape Town, and April 24th Graham's Town. We regret to find that the Natal question instead of being settled is be coming more complicated. It appears that the Boers, who retired inland from Natal, when the British took possession had quarrelled with, antd had had some engagements with, a tribe of natives on the banks or the Orange River (the boundary of the original Gape Colony,) and ihad threatened to exter minate them. T:.e Griquas being " allies" of the English, had applied to the Governuient for assistance, and a regiment nfdragoons and some artillery had been srnt from Oraham's Town to endeavour to put an end to the war, In the meantime, a body of the old Dutch settlers, residing in the Cape Colony, had stated their intention of taking part with their relatives and frienrds. the Natalians, if the soldiers interfered between tihemni and the native. In this unsatisractory statu the affair remained...

IMPORTANT RELIGIOUS MOVEMENT IN GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 2 July 1845

IMPORTANT RELIGIOUS MOVEMENT IN GERMANY. EVENTS of a grave and importa!rnt character appear to be developing th'em selves in various parts of the Continent ; but in no part is this more strikingly thecaspe than in Germany. From a report, by Dr. MI'Cnul, of a tour lately made by h'm through Germany, at the request of the Society for piomoting Christianity among the Jews, it appears evident that the mitd of thle Hebrew nation is in a very feverish state. '¶..The qutestions of the oral low," says )r. M'C'aul, 'a Jewish emancipation ifd reform," keep all Germany alive. iThe Jewish mind is thoroughly roused ; ill are striving after something they know not what." As m;ght naturally he expected, many have fallen into in fidelity ; but not a few have cordially embraced the faith of our Divine Re deen;er. Among the Roman Catholics a similar and equally extensive move nmett appears to he taking place. The letter of the Roman Catholic priest Rongep, denouncing the folly and idola try of the la...

WONDERFUL DISCOVERY OF A NEW ANIMAL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 2 July 1845

WONDERFUL DISCOVERY OF A NEW ANIMAL—In our last number we give an account of the finding of a fragment of the knee joint of some gigantic animal, which, from there being no such animal hitherto known to exist in Australia, we supposed to be the fossil remains of some early period. Subsequent information, however; coupled with the fact that     the bone was in good preparation, and had altogether a "recent" ap- pearance, has induced us to alter our opinion. On the bone being shown to an intelligent black, he at once recognised it as belonging to the "Bunyip," which he declared he had seen. On being requested to make a drawing           of it, he did so without hesitation. The bone and the picture were then       shown separately to different blacks who had no opportunity of communicating   with each other; and they one   &...
