MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 24 July 1845

MELBOURNE. THE GOVERNOR.-A private letter received yesterday,' states, that Sir George Gipps is to proceed' to Eng land; to answer for dismissing Mr Willis from the judicial bench. As thl aauthirity of the writer of the letter was Mr WWillis, we do not place much reliance on the rdmour, which, we may mention, was very prevalent in Melbourne twelve months since. [The above is from the Sydney Mor ning Herald, a newspaper most in ceasing in its hostility to our late excellent jidge,'thbo incredulitymani fested is not,,th'ercforo, difficult to account for. Perhaps if our contenk porary had been aware that at the date of the- sailing of the March packet'the na'mo of H1is excellency Sir George Gipps ,nas:istuck up as ia contempt ?of H'*e'r Majesty's Privy Council :he would~ not have 'been quite so incredulous.-?ED. iM.

PARIS & LONDON FASHIONS FOR MARCH. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 24 July 1845

PARIS & LONDON FASHIONS FOR MARCH. To form some idea of present fash ions, the Paris and the London vogues must be combined in one rapid glance. Paris is at this moment in a statp of widowhood, lamenting the departed spirit of pleasure. To the uninter rupted succession of brilliant fetes, routes, and concerts, to the incessant whirlwind of amusement has succeeded general silence and quietude. The Court ceasing its receptions has given an example which all have of necessity followed; brilliant reminiscences are now all that is left. The King and his sons, who forget nothing that can increase their popularity, and who are fully conscious of the high influence ex erted by the pleasures of a nation over its graver, interests, have this season received more tiian usual, and the fetes of the Tuilleries have'recalled, by their b magnificence, the palmy days of Louis tl XIV. The necessity of luxury and a expenditure amongst the aristocracy is ti well understood in France, and if the...

EQUALISATION OF DUTY ON COLONIAL CORN. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 24 July 1845

EQUALIlATION OF DULY ON COLONIAl COHN. From the Colonial Gazette, March 1. ON Friday week, Mr Butt pre-, sented to the House of Commons a petition from Van Diemen's Land, ,subscribed by five hundred merchants and others, praying for the admission of Australian corn into the ports of Great Britain, on payment of .the same duty as corn from Canada. We have reason to believe, that a memorial, still more numerously signed, to the' same effect, had been received by Lord Stinley, from the colonists of South Australia, trans mitted by the Governor of the colony, who fully concurs in the prayer of the colonists. We are happy to understand that the friends of these colonies here are on the alert to promote this ob ject. The South Australian Society have resolved to present a memorial to Lord Stanley on the subject; and the New South Wales and Van Die men's Land Mercantile Association intend to take the same step, and to follow it up by a petition to the House of Commons. It was alleged, last...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 24 July 1845

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. The Cape Frontier Times of April 24, contains a long communication from Colsborg, dated 21st April, de. tailing scenes of bloodshed between the emigrant INatalian farmers of Colesbcrg and the Griquas, a tribe beyond the north-eastern boundary; I the ostensible cause of quarrel being in attempt on the part of the former to act judiciously agains: the subjects t of the Griqua chief. It appears that SHBoer, named Jan Krinaaw, acting under the orders of the Burgher taad of WVestburg, attacked with an armed force a kraal of Bechuanas, living under the protection of the Griquas, took two of them prisoners, kept them for eight days, and dis lissed them with a severe beating. 'rhe Griqua chief then announced to the Civil Commissioner of Colesberg his determination to take Krinaaw prisoner, and send him to the colony for trial. He attempted to do so, but Krinaaw escaped. Several en counters subsequently took place, and on the 14th April the immigrants made a grand attack o...

TRE FRENCH MINISTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 31 July 1845

TRE FRENCH MINISTRY. MA. Guizot holds his ground, but does not gain any. He has still the majority, when all forces are mustered for a pitched battle. But his troops are volunteers, who are not always at "their post, and who reserve both en thusiasm and steadiness for great occa Slons. On the other hand, the Op position, all alive and alert by 'finding itself within a dozen or a score of the _majority, presses on in an undivided and vigilant mass to a triumnph, which reems not far distant. A poor, little, unimportant law, for regulating the half-pay or retiring salaries of clerks and officials, has just been rejected by the Opposition, merely to show their power and numbers ; for objections to the law there were none, at least on the part of the Liberals. A dozen of these officials, discontented with some -clauses of the law, came to the aid of the anti.ministerialists, and &I. Ouizot was (doomed to suffer one of those petty affronts which the Tories loved 'to in'flict upon ...

.'Every mail which arrives from -Sydney brings the intelligence that -the Executive Council is deliberat ing upon the new regulations. If, therefore, the equatters desire to have any voice in the matter, it would be well that they should speak outat once ; for so soon as the mem bers of the executive council have come to agree upon any particular scheme, any attempt to induce them to review their proceedings or to overturn their decision, will beina effectual. .:With the exception of Mr Ed ward Curr, we aie not aware that any individual has attempted to frame S'proposals f a different nature from those issued by the government: For the reasons stated in our last, we disapprove as much of Mr Curr's system, as we do of the Government proposals.

BONE MANURE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 31 July 1845

BONE NIANURE.-Sensible of the very great bene-fits that have been derived at home by the appllcalonof bone manure, we intend to give publicity to a few ex tr'cts from celebrated Writers and from published grictiltural reporti, whi'lch, we think. shew ivitltbut doubt, that it may be most advantageously used in tis country, wherein the miserable state of the roads renders the carting of dung a thing not to be even thought qf ; as bearing on this part of this subject, we may mention that Sir John Sinclair calc.ulates,that the comparative quantity of bone dust to an acre of land is forty. five bushels to thirty tons of dunk , the difference of hlabour and cartage is much in favour of the bone dust, as he allows only one cart for the bone manure, and thirty for the conveyance of the thirty tons of dung. Bone dust, therefore, as a manure, may, with comparative ease beapplied to lands, at a great distance or ofdiffllicult accese. We find, that on light dry soils, it is pectiliarly applicab...

THE VACANCY. Mr Mollison, of Mount Maeedon, has been named as likely to come for ward as a candidate for the vacancy created by the retirement of Mr Young. Respecting Mr Archibald Boyd, the candidate for the other vacancy, the following letter, published in the Mel bourne Courier, affords some fnrther information: " I had written thus far, when Mr A. Boyd called, and authorised me to say to you that as a great Squatter in the Northern Districts it was evi dent to him from the recent de spatches that it was the intention of Government to make use of all the out-stations of the Colony as a milch cow to support the extravagance of the Central Government, and that, therefore, although at first opposed to the separation of Port Phillip, under the idea of its being likely to break down one great Colony into several petty ones, he is now pre pared not only to join in with the de mand for the separation of Fort Phillip, but also to insist upon that of the Northern Districts.

SEDITION. -We had hoped that the general censure bestowed upon the leading members of the Pastoral Associa tion, and of the Legislative Council, for their violent and. unreasonable language on the occasion when the views of His Excellency the Gover nor were -first announced, would have had the effect of deterring them from such offensive displaysin future; .hut such a hope is not likely to be realised, for there are men amoingst them, who, we verily be lieve, can no more amend their mariners, than the Ethiopian can change his skin. One of these in corrigibles is our honorable and reverend representative Dr Lang, who has just published a letter in the Sydney Atlas, wherein he actually has the audacity to threat en, yes, deliberately threaten the government,if it persist inenforcing the new squatting regulations, with an insurrection. He even enters in to the details of the military opera tions which would ensue, with as much coolness and collectedness as if he were arranging the head...
