ENGLAND. WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 28 November 1840

ENGLAND.   WOOL. The sales of Colonial wool, compris- ing 1,504 bales Australian, 2,122 bales Van Diemen's Land, 192 bales Swan River, 1,011 bales Cape, 4,829 bales, and 864 bales East Indian Wool, com- menced on the 14th and closed on the   15th instant. The attendance of ac-   tual buyers was large, considering the quantity and character of the wools brought forward. These sales consisted for the most part of the residuum of the last season's growth, and were chiefly of low and inferior quality, with a large propor- tion of skin and ill conditioned wool. With the prospect of the new clip coming in (reported to be well con- ditioned), and a stock of short wool still in the hands of the Yorkshire buyers, prices for such descriptions were expected to decline, and the result of the sales gives a reduction of 2d. per lb. on the prices of the Feb- ruary sales. The small portion of the new wools, per Derwent, adapted to combing pur- poses, were much...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 28 November 1840

Sale by Public Auction at Gee- long of Town Allotments, T. FORSTER Is instructed to offer for sale by auc- tion, at Geelong, on THURSDAY, the 3rd of December, at 1 o'clock, on the ground, THREE very valuable TOWN   ALLOTMENTS in Geelong, Nos.   3, 4, and 11 of Block 6, consisting of half an acre each, having frontages to Fyans, Foster, Little Fyans and Yarra-streets, subdivided according to plans to be exhibited at sale. When the admirable situation of Geelong is considered, and the capa- bilities of the surrounding country, joined to the circumstance of ener- getic measures having been already taken to import direct to that district one thousand families, there can be no manner of doubt that the town of Geelong will soon become the em- porium of a populous and wealthy community. Steam navigation will also bring it within an hour or two's sail of Melbourne, to which, in al- probability it will be little if at all inferior; and in every point of view &am...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 28 November 1840

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE THE WEATHER.—There appears, at last to be some chance of a change in the weather. There have been several flying showers about this afternoon (Saturday.) The country around     Geelong does not appear to have suffered much as yet from the long continued drought. It is still covered with vege- tation which may be looked for in vain in the other parts of New South Wales. On mentioning this circumstance to a   settler who had just returned from his station, he replied, "That the interior     was like spring, and around the town   like midsummer." The crops are still looking well; but should the same weather continue long, they may suffer serious injury. LAND SALE.—A large sale of town allotments was to have been held at South Geelong, by Mr. Forster, on Thursday last. There was a numerous and respectable assembly of intending purchasers, at the proper time and place, but owing to an unfortu...

THE GOVERNMENT PADDOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 5 December 1840

THE GOVFRNI?MENT PADDOCK. - We have hitherto been deluded by the notion that all Government reserves- were intended for the benefit of thepublic. The enclosed Government paddock, between South Geelong and the Breakwater, has opened our eyes on the subject. When first enclosed, no doubt, the measure appeared unobjection able; but noriw when the straight line of road from the southern township to the bridge lays along the banks of the river; and when 'ridersi pedestrians, and vehicles must go a quarter of a mile out of their course, it is requisite that a thoroughfare of some sort should he opened through it. We are not likely to have that boon granted however, under the present adminis tration, as we believe it is only recently that the restriction has been rigorously. enforced. Instead of rcmoving the existing ob. stacles to our prosperity, the policy of the present authorities seems to be to increase their number and' magni tude. If there hadl been a marsh or a lagoon where the pad...

SHEEP SHEARING. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 5 December 1840

SHEEP SHEARING. I shall proceed 'to suggest the fol lowing observations on shearing the fleece, -end although I am aware that sheep misters in the British Colonies must have numerous difticulties to contend with in this biranch of hus. bandry, owing to the scarcity of ex perienced hands, still it may' be useful to point out the injury which wool sustains by being shorn either un ekiliulily, or ton early in the season, that is, hefore the wool has arrived at a state of manturity. The unskilful operator impairs the fleece by not shearing close to the pelt, or skin, which reduces the value of .the wool and oaten renders it unlit for the purposes to which it would otherwise have be~n adapted. For ins:tance -lonug wool, asutable for spinning, i1' triot shorn close to the akin is materially imrnired in value for combing, or if applied to that purpose is bought at reduced prices, in consequetce of its being injudi ciously shorn. The great art of shearing is mainly confied to that of clippi...

WOOL. WASHING THE FLEECE ON THE SHEEP'S BACK. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 5 December 1840

WASITING THIE FLEENiE ON THE SHEEP'S BACK. - WVhen the season arrives for the flocks to. be disburlhcned of their fleece,an inclosure should beassigned,, into which the sheep shou.d be driven preparatory to the comm'nce• met of the operation of washing. This p'ace should be carefully cleared of thistles, Ibur and dead grass, in deed of. every thitg liable to adhltere to the fleece. In Saxony it is cus tomnary to immerse the sheep .into water tho day previous to washing, whicl is done for the purpose of damping the fleece and rendering is mire aecessible to the operation .of the fluid; although it ms?t be ac knowleged that this process is likely to occasion cold to the animals.
