ESCAPE OF MUMBOWRAN. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 27 March 1841
ESCAPE OF MUMBOWRAN. We always felt a sort of presenti- ment that Mumbowran's affair would end as it commenced, and as it has been carried on. It appeared to us a moral impossibility for any one bearing the brand of " government" to manage such matters as they ought to be managed. Such a phe- nomenon has never yet occurred, and probabilities were strongly in &nbsp; favor of the result. It appears that when the cutter Governor La Trobe was within one mile of Melbourne, on the night of Friday the 19th instant, Mumbowran under some pretext obtained leave to come upon. deck. He had been heavily ironed, and in order to get him on deck, one hand had to be set at liberty. Watching his oppor- tunity, he glided over the side so swiftly and silently, that no trace of him was afterwards seen, although the boat was instantly manned and strict search made. It is even doubtful whither the weight of his irons draeged him at once to the bottom, or if he managed to reach the shore by the use...

AUSTRIAN NOBILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 3 April 1841
AUSTRIAN NODILITY. From"~all I can see and learn, (says Lord DuHley,). 1 am inclined to believe ihat the highest class of people here (I speak now of the men) are very low in point of knowledge and understanding. Thelly rPcei? a detestable education, generally at hotme, from a F.rench Abbe. Indeed education is ini geeoral by no means properly attended to. It is siid to be best in the Military College ; where. at any rate, they learn some mathematics. A great nobleman •here is in general a dull, ill-informed, and very debauched person ; which is all natural enough, considering his wealtlh, his want of a career of honourable ambition, and his dignity1 which enables· him to trample with impunity upon;" those decencies which are held indispensable in a better regulated society. 'Theo.i?imdn. seem to di serve the clihracter they enjoy all over Eirope, of being far superior to the men; I iniderstantld, for instance, that Priiice Metterich's daughter, who was a year'nor two ago married to ...
THE MYSTERIOUS BEQUEST. AN ORIGINAL TALE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 3 April 1841
THE MYSTERIOUS BEQUEST. AN OCIGINAL rALE, ,The Castello Novo,on the left bank of the Douro, was, at the beginning of the year 18335, a scene of extreme mill. tary disorder, from the incongruous niixture which made up the small army of Dom Pedro. The bravest officeris were associated with the filthiest rubbler, and even the native Portuguese gained b.ycomparison with the scarecrow met cenaries of England. The description of Sir John Falstaff's band will give the best idea of the motley horde:-" You would think that I had an hundred and fifty tattered prodigals lately come from awine-keeping, from eating draff and husks. A mad fellow met me on the way, and told me I had unloaded all the gibbets, and pressed the dead bodies. No eye hath seen such scare crows. I'll not march through Coventry with them.-that's' flat. Nay, and the villaiuns march wide betwixt the legs as if they had irons on, for indeed I had the most of them out of prisoun. There's but a shirt and a half in all my com pa...

THE MAIL STOPPED! [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 3 April 1841
THE MAlL STOPPEDI (A formal order has been issued by the Sydney Government, to put a stop to the mail running between _Geelong and Melbourne. We are thus cut off from all communication with the rest of the world, so far as it is in the power of tho.g- oetien t to-out us off. - T?Ti~i was established at a time when there was not one-twentieth in Cotio. Sir t~ichard Bourke established a mail communication six hundred miles:in length, from Sydney to .Melbourne, when that place was smaller than Corio. What a con tZi'st is displayed by the present retrograde policy of Sir George Gipps! We understand the order has been construed into a complete interdiction of all communication by Post whether by land or sea. We CANNOT BELIEVE that such an atrocious attempt to strangle the youthful energies of Corio could have been intended by the Governor, base'in head and heart although we have reason to believe him to be. It is against his nature, entirely to abandon such a source of revenue Such, howe...
