IMPRISONMENT OF MUMROWRAN. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 13 March 1841
IMPRISONMENT OF MUMBOWRAN.— It is now nearly six weeks since this aborigine was apprehended, and no one has yet appeared against him! &nbsp; This is a case of cool cruel atrocity on the part of his detainers. They are guilty of cowardice, for they would not dare do the same to a white man. That they are guilty of inhumanity, must be acknowledged by the greatest enemy to the blacks, for any one who would use a dog in the same way would be a dog himself. We have noticed this subject so often, that we should be wanting in our duty if we did not deepen our imprecations upon these violators of law, justice, and humanity. Where are the Protectors the accusers, the Crown Prosecutor, the Superintendent, and the Magis- trates? Are they all implicated in this disgraceful affair? We call upon &nbsp; His Honor Judge Willis to sift this matter to the bottom, and to read the delinquents a severe reprimand. When the aborigine's trial does come on, it is twenty to one that no case w...

EXTRAORDINARY APPLICATION OF THE LEVER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 20 March 1841
EXTRAORDINARY APPLICATION O[ TILE LEVER. A great sensation has been produced among many scientific persons by the exhibition of a model of a machine for propelling, with assistance of mann motive power. The principle (which is concealed) consists in a peculiar adapt ation of the lever, and the inventor states that it is his conviction that its power would be sufficient to propel railway trains, boats with paddle wheels, and all description of carriag.s on the common road; and he confidently asserts that if the above should not be realised, that one horse in a carriage might be enabled, with the aid of this apparatus, to do the work of lour horses It is the opinion of practical men who have seen it, that if it should be found, upon trial, to work as well on a large scale as it cloes on a small one, and if it is simple in principle and easy of aoplication, that it is an invention of incalculable value. Proof was given of its efficiency by placing the machine, which weighs 121b., upon ...

THE ARCIIIMEDEB'-SCREW SwTEAM-SIIIP. This important experimental ves sel, of which we have recently heard so much, and which may yet be the forerunner of a revolution in steam. navigation, made her appearance at the Broomielaw, Glasgow, on Satur. day. She left Liverpool on Thursday morning, and steamed to Douglas, Isle of Man, a distance of 70 miles, in seven hours and a half, beating the Mona's Isle steam-packet full two hours in this passage. The Archi medes left Douglas on Friday morn ing at a quarter past nine A.M. and without loosing a sail, by the assist ance of the screw alone, reached Greenock at half past twelve the same night, though during the latter part of the voyage, from Ailsa Craig, the wind blew a strong breeze directly a-head. The distai;ce from Douglas to Greenock is not less than 135 miles which was performed, as already stated in fifteen hours and a quarter. At a quarter past nine on Saturday morn ing the Archimedes left Greenock for Glasgow, which she reached a...
