CORIO IN 1850. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 13 March 1841
CORIO IN 1850. (Extracted from an ,nla blished Edition of the :Universal Gazetteer.) The most remarkable characteristic of this great city is, that it has out stripped all the towns which were far advanced before Corio was hward of. Ten years ago, there were only about a dozen houses, where now flourishes the Emporium of the Australasiatic Nations. The City of Corio is situ. ated at the southwestern corner of a beautiful harbour of tihe same name. The appearance of the city from the bay is imposing and picturesque, but the view is obstructed by the forest of masts, and the clouds of smt.ke emitted by the steamers which are eternally; arriving and .departing. It is difficult to fix upon the boundary line between the city and the suburbs, for the shores -of the bay are so thickly studded with villas, ship-yards, private wharfs, &c. from Point Henry to Saltwater Creek, that it appears to be one immense met ropolis. That part of the town which slopes towards the bay displays a m...

PROMULGATION OF' TIIE LAWS. Every British subject is supposed to be intimatcly acquainted with the laws-by inspiration we sup pose, or some other supernaturAl means; for no attempt is made by the makers of the laws to spread a knowledge of their handiworks. By the establishment of a Court of 'equests and a Public Pound at Corio, several new Acts come into operation, of which the people in general aro ignorant. We are not aware of the existeice of a tinglo copy of' these Acts except at the Police Office, The loss and inconvenience tto the public from the want of 'information must be apparent without any illustration by us. [n oider' to remedy` this evil, (which has been extensively in jmuious on other questions), we intended to puhlish the Imponuding Act, and the Acts relating to Courts of Rlequests,'either in full or in the form of abstracts, in this paper but we have been' prevented in an extraordinary manner.

Hle is from the south of France (he said Mar. seilles, but there wats some doubt oni that point.) It would appear that his ,musket had been overloaded, for it burst, and wounded hiir in the shoulder.
