MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 10 April 1841
TROM OUR OWN C.RRESPONbDENT Money is becoming more come.at able than it was three months ago. There is a large amount of ready cash in the Banks, but the individuals to whom it belongs are waiting for what, it is to be hoped will never come, that is, such a reduction of prices, as would ruin half the people in the colony. -Two or three months will. it is to be hoped, bring our affairs into a healthy condition, when these miscalculating speculators will be sorry th at they allowed the present time of low prices to pass by. Another reason, why land will not sell, is, that no person can be sure what land he can get from the government, in consequence of the dilatoriness of the magnates of Sydney, a?ed the vagueness of the lanid re-gula. The refusal of Sir George Gipps te acknowledge that Melbourne is worthy of the enjoyment of a theatre, has created a murmur of dissatisfaction, but really nothing need be wondered. at which emanates from the Sydney Government, however unjust it uway be....
BRANCH BANK. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 10 April 1841
BRANCH BANK. The want of a Banking Establish. ment in Corio, is severely felt by every class of the community. We trust that a Branch will speedily be opened here, otherwise the march of our prosperity will be secriously impeded. We understand that several months ago. a Branch establishment existed here, when speculation and competition were almost unknown. Since then, the extraordinary extension of our commercial relations, imperatively require the re-institution of that branch, which, although too pre. maturely established, has not, we have reason to believe, been totally abandoned. We do not mean to advocate the establishment of an independent bank for the district. Such a plan would not be so useful and bene ficial in accommodating our inter commercial relations, as a branch from one or other of those estab lishments whose ramifications al ready pervade the neighboulring settlements. Indeed it is not likely that a Bill for authorising the form ation of a local Banking Company wo...

AUSTRIAN NOBILITY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 10 April 1841
AUSTRIAN NbOBILITY. From all I can see and learn, (says Lord Dudley?,) I am inclined to believe that the highest class of people here (I 'peak nov of the men) are ver?y' low in pbint of knowledge and understanding. They receive a detestable education, generally at home, from a F.rench Abbe. Indeed education is in general by no means properly attended to. It is said 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 wealth, his want of a career of honourable ambition, and his dignity, which enables, him to trample .with impunity upon' those decencies .which are held indispensable in a better regulated ~Ticleiy. T' hdi?,.otin seem to deserve the character they enjoy all over Eirope, of being far superior ton the !men I insiderstand, for instance, that Prinice Metterich's daughter, who was a year or two ago married to a C...

CORRESPONDENCE. COURT OF REQUESTS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GEELONG ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 10 April 1841
CORZaESPONDN? E. COURT OF REQUESTS. TO TIB EDITOR OF THE GEELONG ADVERTISER. SIR,-As you may not be aware of all the absurdities enacted by " The Court." on Monday last, and as I happen to know of a very remark~able transaction connected therewith, I hope that you will give publicity to this, for the amusement, if not for the edifi. cation of the public. You censured " The Bench" lately for preventing the promulgation of the laws,-so that we might not be led by the nose, blindfolded. This conduct of the Bench was very had, but it would not have mattered so much if they themselves, or he himself (as the lawyers would say), had made them selves acquainted with the acts in question. The cons qaJence of all this has been, that while in the greater nuwber of the cases the parties were nonsuited from ignrorance-of thIo-timeof attendance. other plaintiffs were non suited in consequence of having been misled by the Commissioner himself I One of the plaintiffs, who had five cases pending, ap...
