VAN DIEMENS LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 20 March 1841
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. THE TASMANIAN LASS.—We regret to announce the total loss of this fine schooner in Wine Glass Bay. It seems that her cable parted in a gale of wind while all hands were on shore, and drifting in she took a sunken rock and after one blow went down. Had the hands been on board it would have been impossible under the circum- stances to save her. Mr Young, the owner, is we hear only insured to the amount of £400.—H. T. Advertiser. The Charlotte brings about three hundred sheep from Port Phillip, having, during a voyage of three days, lost a hundren. and thirty. The Charlotte, through mestaking a bush fire for the light house, ran to leeward, and was forte. eight hours beating in. -Launceston Courier. If anything were wanting to estab lish the truth of the political maxim that the people are the best judges of their own wants-we have it in the rejection of the Road Act on Saturday last. by a majority equal to 90 to b. This measure ehich in spite of the op. position of t...
THE BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 20 March 1841
THE BLACKS. Mumbowran, who, forty-five days ago, was captured by white treachery, charged with having assisted at the execution of a fellow black who had been condemned to he speared for an attempt to murder a white man—and who has now suffered six weeks unne- cessary imprisonment, without his case having been entered into,—was, on Thursday evening last, escorted by a party of soldiers with fixed bayonets, and constables armed with carbines, from the watch-house to the beach, a distance of two or three hundred yards, and put on board the cutter Governor La Trobe, amid the indignant yells of a crowd of aborigines. The execrable management of this business from first to last, has created a great sensation among the blacks. Several strange tribes are now in the neighbourhood of Corio; and had not Mumbowran been removed, it was con- fidently expected that an organised attempt would have been made for his rescue. The fierce behaviour of the few who witnessed his embarkation, was not to b...

GIPPS' LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 27 March 1841
GIPPS' LAND. (raoMt TnE PATRIOT.) Tax Singapore arrived from Corner Inlet on Saturday, and we haive been obligingly favoured with the following report of the expedition, by one of the passengers, for publication in our co lumns to'day. A fuller report will, in all probability, appear in an early num ber. The passage to Corner Inlet proved a Svery tedious one ; a succession of calms and contrary winds preventing the ves sel from exhibiting her sailing qualities. On the 13th February the Singapore en. trred the harbour, .with a gentle breeze from the southward, which afforded the passengers a favourable opportunity Af examining the harhour, and observing the appearance and general features of the country which surrounds it. On entering the harbour the lofty summits of Wilson's Promontory are observable Son the left, and tthough barren in the extreme they present a striking featurs -in the outhne, and are valuable as a guide to the entrance of the harbour.

THE BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 27 March 1841
THE BLACKS. This never-ending subject becomes more and more urgent upon our notice every week; and if any doubt over existed inl the public mind. as to the necessity for entirely abandoning the present system, and cnmmencing a different course of legislation for the blacks, it must now be cleared away. 'The intercourse 'between settlers and aborigines is invatinably per nicious in its results. The invaders are generally divided into two large classes-the ,i xterminators bi cr. elty, and the 'l"xteri|niators by in dulgence. 'l'he two classes are alike injurious -the pseudo.philn thropist will effect the destruction of. a native race, as surely as the most sanguinariy hunter. 1 he chief duty of a goveriment therefore ought to consist in pr'venting as' muoch as pos.ible any c;,llision between the whites and blacks, until time shall reconcile the formner to acknowledge their inferior fellow creatures, and wean the latter from their savage pt'pensities, so as to fit tn-m for a higher ran...

Ibrahitm arnd Soliman Pa shas had retreated before the victo riou allies, and their whole troops were in a state ollihe greatest demoral ization. All is quiet and going on well in Egy pt.

SaizcaRs.-On "Tuesday last, four boxes of cigars were seized by .\ir. l3ohun the laudingz waiter, on board the De[vonshire. We have ,.o doubt bt t that the property will be. retrnted to its owner, Mr Simeutn, (who is abotit to comnmence a store dowrI here), for it is-quJ?e clear that there was no in. tentlio j of (lefratding the revenue, and that the error lies in the slovenly main tier in which the maitilcst was made out in Melbourne. The omission of a cipher by an ignorant skipper, who cannot spell two words consecutively,. may thus do a deal of mischief. Not the less praise, howev...
