SYDNEY MARKETS.—20TH MAY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845

SYDNEY MARKETS.—20TH MAY. WHEAT.— The weather has prevented   the farmers from bringing much of their wheat to market during the week. The prices given at the mills range from 3s to 3s 6d per bushel. Since last report, 27 loads of wheat have been disposed of at the Corn Market, Campbell-street, at prices ranging from 3s 3d to 3s 7½d per bushel—the average of the 27 loads is about 3s 6d per bushel, and likely to advance a little higher. FLOUR —The usual quantity has been sold at the mills since our last report, and the price of fine remains firm at 19 per ton, with an upward tendency. OATS are scarce, and are much en- quired after for seed; the few that are   in the market are in the hands of the dealers; they appear to be light and small, and are retailing at 5s per bushel. BARELY is very scarce: that known as Cape barley is fetching 2s 6d per bushel retail; English barley is retail- ing at 3s to 3s 6d per bushel. The wholesale prices are—Cape, from 2s to 2...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845

AT a Meeting of Licensed Occu-   piers of Crown Lands in the District of Grant, convened for the purpose of protesting against the assumed right of the District Council to levy an assessment on stock de- pastured on crown lands, the follow- ing resolutions were unanimously   adopted:— 1st. That the assessment which the District Council of Grant are now attempting to levy on Squatters, is unjust and unconstitutional ; inas- much as they would thereby be taxed to the amount of about two-thirds of the whole assessment, without being in any manner represented. 2nd. That provision for police being one of the pretexts for forcing a District Council upon us, and squatters being already expressly assessed under the Squatting Act for that purpose; if the police pro- posed to be maintained by the Dis- trict Council are to be employed on Crown Lands, they are superfluous;   and if intended for the protection of the town and landed property, squat- ters ou...

ATROCIOUS MURDER IN SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845

ATROCIOUS MURDER IN SYDNEY. YESTERDAY morning a great sensation   was created in the vicinity of the inter- sections of King with George and York streets by the report of a horrid murder having been perpetrated shortly before daybreak. It appears that Mrs. Hoad- ley, an aged female, the landlady of a small cottage, at one time known as the Sun Printing Office, situate on the south side of King-street, between the pre- mises occupied by Mr. Heydon, auc-   tioneer, and Mr Pattison, gunsmith, was discovered lying in bed, in a back tenement where she slept, bleeding pro- fusely from two wounds in the head, and that shortly after she expired. The discovery of Mrs Hoadley's con- dition was made by a girl named Rosan- na Wilson, her adopted daughter, aged between thirteen and fourteen years, who waited on the deceased, and was a- sleep in bed with her at the time the wounds were inflicted. The girl states that she was awoke by the deceased making an unusual noise,...

THE PENTONVILLE EXILES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 28 May 1845

(fron the Gazette ) "GIVE a dog a badname and hang     him," is an old saying, and it was never better exemplified than in the case of the Pentonville Exiles. Every   person is ready to cast reflections upon them, when any petty larceny rogue is brought up for stealing, he is put down, by a certain class, as a Pento- villeian, or, as the slang term goes, "Penton-villain." The Press, too,     having been, with one exception, opposed to their introduction, take   good care to promulgate the most ex-   aggerated statements, and a whole chain of false reasoning is propounded with a pertinacious zeal, which frequently puts us in a passion with these narrow- minded scribes, who write about what they do not understand. Now,the truth is, a better lot of men than the Pentonville Exiles never yet entered   the District. There has not been one   of them found guilty of stealing ...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 31 May 1845

The Squatters' Advocate.         "Men who know their rights   And, knowing, dare maintain." THE arrival of the January Packet Ship is looked forward to, by all classes of politicians in Sydney, with great anxiety—the decision of the   Home Government on the proposed Squatting Regulations of Sir George Gipps being looked upon as a matter of the greatest importance, as affecting the interests of the Colony at large, as well as the stability of Sir George Gipps's administration. The general opinion is, that the Home Government will either adopt the proposed regulations, or make use of them in forming the founda- tion for measures of even a more objectionable nature. The regulation actually proclaimed by Sir George Gipps to take effect from and after the 1st July next; (namely, for the exaction of a sepa- rate license fee for every 12,000 acres or 4000 sheep) will, we are of opinion be immediately enforced.

STATE OF PARTIES. From the Port Phillip Herald. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 31 May 1845

STATE OF PARTIES. From the Fort Phillip Herald. We observed in our last that an obvious alteration has taken place in the tone of public sentiment with referrence to Pastoral Politics, in this District at least. During the quiet of the Legislative recess, people of moderate investment in live stock have discovered that the new regulations which come into force in a few weeks, will affect themselves very little; and that the man who pos- sesses his twenty thousand sheep, not only ought to pay, but can afford to pay a greater rent for his larger run than he who has only two thousand. It is erroneous to argue that it would have been as advantageous to the re- venue, and equally just to have aug- mented the assessment on stock. No one can study the revenue returns under that head for the last few years, without concluding that either a most negligent or erroneous assessment is made, and that the tax is one which may be imposed with the utmost strict- ness, or suffered to be unequally li...

THE CROWN LANDS BEYOND THE BOUNDARIES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 31 May 1845

THE CROWN LANDS BEYOND THE BOUNDARIES. (From the Maitland Mercury.) OUR object is to bring under notice the opinions of some of the leading colonists touching the future adminis- tration of the lands beyond the boun- daries. These opinions were elicited by the Crown Land Grievances Committee, during the late session of Council. Al- though there is a temporary lull in the interest and excitement on the squatting question, its importance to the squat- ters themselves, and to the community at large, is in no way diminished: it is still equally essential to the present prosperity of the colony that the public lands beyond the boundaries should be so administered as to ensure the great- est amount of individual and general benefit. There were twenty-six gentlemen examined before the Committee, in- cluding two or three members of Coun- cil, and three officers of government. Circular letters were also sent to the magistrates of the territory. There were various subjects brought under the n...

SALT BEEF. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 31 May 1845

SALT BEEF.—The stilt beef sent to England in the latter part of 1843, turned out so badly, that many per- sons who were in the habit of salting large quantities discontinued their operations last year, and the conse- quence is, that salt beef is now scarce, and consequently dear. We hope, however, that a different course will be pursued this year; and that large quantities of salt beef will be prepared for the market. There can be no doubt that the failures which took place were entirely owing to the meat having been sent home in wool ships, the heat causing putrefaction. This is proved by a case which occurred at Port Phillip. A person salted down a lot of bullokes, and sent one portion to England in a ship leaded with wool, and the other portion to India in a ship which had scarcely any other cargo; that sent to England was sold for manure, being putrified; that sent to India was declared to be the best beef that had been seen for some time, and fetched a higher price than any oth...

DISTRICT COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 31 May 1845

DISTRICT COUNCIL. IT will be recollected that about a month ago, the District Council came to a resolution to address the Go- vernor, intimating to him that, as they anticipated considerable oppo- sition to the levy of the rates, they required a guarantee to be protected from the consequences of an action at law; otherwise, they would de-   cline the responsibility of carrying the Assessment Bye-law into effect.     An answer to this communication has been received, the substance of which is as follows:—His Excellency gives his opinion that the Acts of the Council have been perfectly legal, and that the District Council is quite competent to pass bye-laws for effect- ing the levy of the rates imposed; but that he declines guaranteeing any thing on the part of the Govern- ment, as being a course altogether unusual and unauthorised.   This reply will of course form the principal topic of discussion at the first meeting of the Council...
