MAURITIUS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 10 July 1845
MAURITIUS, Our Mauhitius papers are to the 31st March, but they contain little of any interest to our readers. The revenue was in any thing rather than a flourish ing state as compared with the expendi ture. By the official returns laid before the Legislative Council it appeared that the revenueol 1841 was £399,980. and the expenditure £463 962; and this while the Mauritians laboured under a heavy pressure of direct taxation. The amount of Indian Immigration has not been found to be soflicient to afford the extent of relief required by the co-. lonists, yet tihe expense of that which had taken place had amounted to £96,000 more than the funds derived from taxes and other sources out of which it was to be paid for. A matter, apparently of considerable congratulation to the Mau ritiansa, has arisen out of a despatch re, cently received by Sir W. Gomm. It appears that in t839, the Legislative Council of the colony passed an Act au thorising the appropriation of £150 per annum, as an ex...
CAPTAIN STURT'S EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 10 July 1845
CAPTAIN STURT'S EXPEDITION. (From the Register). Mucn anxiety is now beginning to be felt about Captain Sturt and his party, who have now been out on their ex* pedition northward upwards of ten months. This aniety has been greatly in creased by the arrival of a despatch from Mr Nation, of Moorunde, to the Colonial Secretary on Sunday last, stating, as we understand, that it is commonly reported, among the Mur ray River natives, that Captain Sturt and. the whole of his party have been murdered. Atter the most careful inquiry into the matter, we are led to the conclusion, that it is one of these vague rumours of the natives upon which no reliance is to be placed. A native boy, of Moorunde, it appears, accompanied Captain Sturt, and the natives of that district have been holding a " lamen tation" over him, but the same was done in reference to the two boys who accompanied Mr Eyre to England; and the lamentation, therefore, if it mean anything, must be taken rather as a deploration of l...

FRE[?]H MINERAL DISCOVERIES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 10 July 1845
FRE'H MINERAL DISCOVERIES. (F'rom the Register.) TH events of the past week ivill, we cpprehend, give a quietus to all chand. It-rs' ahop mining in South Australia. All the mines hitherto discovered and worked, and whose productiveness and rich returns have been so highly spoken ,of, sinklc into utter insignificance, when placed hy the side of a IRotchschild's operations. The discovery of mineral riches showing "themselves on the surface for an extent of several miles, and of a comparatively commensurate width, has so far excited the minds of many of our sober-sided citizens, that some' doubts as to their perfect sanity were beginning to take placo amongst their best friends, until suflicieni proof of the truth of the reports were afforded, by the testimony of more than one indubitable authority. The locale of this new discovery, is stated to be to the North of Adelaide, between the South land of the Murray and Mount Bryant; and the strata of minerals is'stated to increase in value ...

THE LATE SHIPWRECK IN BASS' STRAITS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 10 July 1845
TEIE LATE SHIIPWRECK IN BASS' :STRAITS. Wr have received a letter asking. to be informed whether, or rather in sinuating for our information thait, the Mary has not been classed in asy Register of Shipping any time these twenty years, that had she been sea worthy she would not have -gone. to pieces so speedily as .reported, and that being so old as. to have no re cord of her age, and so unseaworthy as to disappear in seven minutes, she could not be fit to go on a voyage in winter from Sydney to England. We have also heard many unfavoti'able comments made respecting her iage and condition, and the muanner of her melancholy loss; anrd it cannot be denied, that there is much ground for dissatisfaction. We o think'it but fair, however, to state, that wve are iuforimeil this vessel underwent a thorough -repair at an, expense of six thliousand pounds, about three years ago; that, previous to hiersailifij this last time, she was 'carefully surveyed by two experienced and competent persons,...
PROSPECTS OF THE WOOL MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 10 July 1845
PROSPECTS OF THE WOOL . MARKET. IN a late number of the Economist, is a carefully written article, professing to be a review of the history and pros pects of the Wool Trade of Great Britain. We ore not, ourselves, in possession of the paper, butare enabled to make some extracts therefrom by means of a aummary by one of our Hobart Town cotemporaries. '"The supply and consumption of wool in England during the year 1844 have been on a scale quite unprece dented in extent. The increased soup ply is attributed in some measure to the wise repeal, by Parliament, of the dulty; whvich pressed with great severity on the lowest class of wools, such as are slpplied chiefly from the Alediter ranean, of Russian, Italian, and African growth. The import of these qualities has increased very much in the second half of the year since the duty was re moved. The comparison of these wools imported in 184-2 and 1844 exhibits an 4ncrease, amounting to the difference bw veen 13,981 and 35,940 bags. By offi...

THE BANK CASE. (From tlhe Sydney Chronicle.) This case,.in which the Bank of Australasia are plaintiffs, and Thomas Chapli Breillat, chairman of the Bank of Australia, defendant, and which has excited so much interest among the mercantile circles of the colony, having already occupied the Supreme Court ten days during the last term, was again called on for trial at bar on Monday last, The Court, as might be expected, was nearly filled with spectators, who were chiefly merchants, bank directors, or gentlemen otherwise interested in mercantile transactions.

Dr Epaille, Vicar Apos tolic of North-western Oconnica, ac companied by seven clergyman and six lay brothers arrived in Sydney by. the Bussorah Merchant. His Lordship and suite we are happy to say, have all arrived in good health, although the voyage was a tedious one ; the Bussorah Merchant having met with a succession of heavy gales after having left the Cape of Good Hope on the 4th May. It is not yet known at which of the islands his Lordship will fix his residence, and it may probably be some weeks before he takes his departure from Sydney. Bishop Epaille, previous to his eleva tion to the episcopacy, was for some time engaged on the mission at New Zealand, having filled the office of Vicar General to the IRight Rev.

ENGLAND. LITERARY NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 10 July 1845
ENGLAND. LITERARY NEWS. Sir Lytton Bulwer having relin- quished novel writing, for the present at least, is engaged in finishing his work on "Athens; its Rise and &nbsp; Fall." Two forthcoming volumes will complete the work; and are stated to be principally devoted to the manners and customs of the Athenians, and to their literature. Mr Grote, late M.P. for London, is also just on the eve of completing his 'History of Greece;" a work on &nbsp; which he has been employed very many years, and which his inexhaus- tive erudition will, doubtless, render valuable. Mr Thomas Carlyle is said to be busy with his "Life of Cromwell." &nbsp; He has, also made a collection of Cromwell's Letters and Speeches, to be published, in all probability, before the Life. They are likely to form about two volumes 8vo. Mr Dicken's new work, the 'Chimes,' published only on the 17th December, has already reached a sixth edition.

Opinion of the Lord Bishop of Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 12 July 1845
Opinion of ~he Lord Bishop of Australia. IN the suggestions which I offered to the Legaislative Council in 1342, foi deriving from the waste lands a reve. nue stilficient for purposes ofimmigras. uion, I used (ao)ongst othere)the fol. lowing expressions: " We want to hold out suflicient in ducemests to dispose the grazier to purchase land beyond the limits of location to the extend required. " We want to give him an interest in the soil above that of the niere squatter. and yet to guard against compromsing the rights of the Crown, as well as alienating disproportionati quantities of waste land at an inadequate price. " We want, by giving the landholder such an interest, to encourage him to attend to his own civtl, social, and re ligious improvement, and so to lay a foundation for a flourishing state of society throughout the length and breadth of the land, even to the far thest liinit of this exterided country.'" My proposal was to effect these purposes by leaving it optioual to eve...

DESPATCHES ON THE - OCCUPATION. OF CROWN LANDS BY SQUATTERS. SSeconrd Despatch frimn Sir George SGipps to Lord Stanley. Government House, Sydney 16th April, 1844.

I have now to inform your Lord ship, that the issue of this notice has produced a great excitement among the occupiers of Crown Lands, and that a publid meeting of "' squatters" was held in Sydney, on the 9th in stant, at which some strong resolu tions were unanimously adopted. The butery which has thus been raised, shoivs how completely the oc cupiers of these lands have acius tomed themselves to look on themi as their own; and how urgently some declarati6n, on the part of the Go. veinmrent w'as nccessary,to check the growth of opinions, such as those -which wee proclaimed at Ihe...
