SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 2 August 1845
SSOUTH AUSTALIA. Adelaide papers to the 9:h instant ?tame to hand yesterday. The report ihat all port charges and wharfage rates ihave been abolished is confirmed, and Adelaide is now a free port. The colonists ofSouth Australia are so much pleased with the conduct of Governor Grey in this matter, that a public mneeting was called for the 12'h instant, to vote him an address, and invite him to a public dinner. Governor Grey stated in Council that he was in communication with Sir G. Gipps respecting the establish ment of an overland comtnunication between Sydney anid Adelaide. Everything appears flourishing; but inhere are the ships to take away the -Pre, wool, and other produce now heady for export?

The letter of Mr Colin Campbell which we gave in our last number was well worthy of perusal; but we look forward wfth a much greater degree of interest to his second letter. The view he has taken of the Governor's erroneous policy is perfectly just; but in reviewing the past, he of course stands upon vantage ground, and ought to make great allowance forithe fallibility of human foresight when the Gover nor's line of policy was first chalked out. As we know that Mr Campbell is one of the most competent men In ihe district to take a clear view of the pre sent crisis, and form a correct judgment upon the course which should now be followed, we look upon his first letter as of a merely preliminary nature, and anticipate that he will place the ques tions which now agitate the public mind in a favourable light for their thorough elucidation.

ENGLISH NEWS. From ithe Sydney Herald. .. Vu received last night, two Eng itsh newspapers of the 314t March.

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 2 August 1845
THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. (From the Sydney Register). ' The Right Honourable Secretary then con. gratulated the House upon the temper with which the campaign in that House had commelicld.*' George Canning, JDn, 12, 1800. WE know not if our honourable Secre tary will have occasion to repeat the above congratulation with respeict to the " tone and temper" of the Legsla five Council, at the opening of the ses. sion which commences on Thursday next. The Legislative Conncil of New Sonth Wales has no powers whatever as a body, except those which it has ieceived from the British Parliament. When it goes beyond those powers, as it has more than once attempted to do, it throws aside its legal and consti tutional character altogether, and be comes an illegal and unconstitutional faction. The constitution which the Imperial Parliament has granted us may be imperlect. It is no doubt imperfect, and it is lawful for the colonists to seek in the proper quarter for such amendments "as may be re quir...

:On mature consideration of the seditious letter published by the Rev Dr Lang, and commented upon in our last, our impression of its in jurious tendency has been consider ably deepened. The letter is not .only seditious towards government but libellous towards the public of the colony, whose sentiments it professes to convey. The letter is addressed to the editor of a London daily journal, and consequently in tended for the perusal of the pub lic of Great Britain, who will have no means of testing the accuracy of the statements made in it; and bear ing, as it does, the name of a mem ber of council as a voucher of its authenticity, no doubt on that point will be entertained. 1I If the letter contained merely Dr. Lang's individual sentiments, we could have little reason to com plain of his giving them expression; but when it is considered that he is a representative of the inhabilants of Port Phillip, the matter assumes a most serious aspect ; and the questions, which must arise in th...
DAGUERREOTYPE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 2 August 1845
DAGUERREOTYPE.-We feel great pleasure in announcing to the resi dents of this district, that Mr Goodman, whose success in taking likenesses by the daguerreotype pro cess has been very great, arrived by the ' histle on Wednesday last. Although his original intention was to confine his visit to Mel bourne alone, we are authorised to state that he will extend his visit to Geelong, provided a cer(ain number of subscribers be guaranteed to him, for which purpose a list will be opened at the stationery warehouse. Thelife-like expression and invariable accuracy which dis tinguishes the portraits taken by the above process, are recommenda tions possessed by no other method of taking likenesses. THE BRICKFIELDS.-The strife and uproar which lately prevailed in this quarter of the town has been put a stop to, for the present, by the interference of the Commis sioner for the county of Grant, the' expulsion of a man named Groves, with his family, from the crown lands occupied by him.
MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 2 August 1845
,MELBOUtRN E LIBEL -Mr Wilkinson, the edito and publisher of the Portland Guar dian, arrived in town by the Ellen and Elizabeth, on Tuesday last, as a pris oner tinder committal for trial, and was lodged in the Melbourne gaol. The Herald, we observe, talks of this as ", a harsh proceeding" on the part of Mr Blair, the complainant in the case, but we confess we cannot see where the harshness lies, Mr Wilkinson's refusal to give bail leaving no alternative in the matter.-Courier. LEGISLATIVE CouNcIL.-The vacant seat in the Legislative Council, caused by the retfrement of Mr Blsxland, has been filled up ; Mr George Allen, the present Mayor of Sydney. being the new member.

Colonial Secretary's Office, . Sydney, 10th July, 1845. CIOWN LANDS OCCUPATION. W ITH1 reference to the notice res. V pecting licenecs to pasture SheeP and Cattle on Crown Lands, which was issned from this office, on tie 2nd April, 3844. and to the Despalches of which copies were published in the Govern ment Gazette Extraordinary, of the 28th June last, His Excellency the Governor, with the advice of the Executive Coun cil, has directed this additional notice to ie published. 2. The quantities of land actually in the occupation of individuals being, as yet, in many cases, imperfectly known to the Government, the rules laid down in the Notice of the 2nd April, 1844, cannot be fully applied in the issue of licenses for the current year: lieenses, therefore, for the occupatibn of Crown Lands beyond the boundaries of locu rion during thle year which commenced on the Ist instant, and will end on the ,30th June, 1846, will be issued on the following terms : (1.)

EMANCIPISTS FROM VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 2 August 1845
EMANCIPISTS FROM VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. (From the Sydney Herald.) Tire late notification of the government of Van Diemen's Land" is one of no small importance to this colony. Va rious circumstances impress upon us the belief that the great majority of these Van Diemen's Land emancipists will be. take themselves to New South Wales; aed the question is, ought we to en courage or resist such a movement? In truth, this is substantially the some question as that argued by us six months ago, with regard to the Exiles. The Exiles from England and the emanci. pists from Van I)iemen's Land, will, in point of law, be identical: both will be perfectly free within their prescribed limits, anti their limits will be the same. We are not equally confident, however, that they will be on a par in point of character. The admirable system of punitive and reformatory discipline to which the exiles are known to have sub. mitted, and which gives such strong hopes as to their future good behaviour, has not, t...
TROUBLES IN SWITZERLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 2 August 1845
'rrTrOUBLES IN SWITZERLAND. YE regr'et to find that the.stability of the Helvetic confederation is about being placed in jeopardy by civil dis sentions, arising front the determina tion of several of the cantons not to allow of the scttlement of the Jesuits in any part of the confederation. It appears that the canton of Lucerne had invited the Jesuits to superintend the education of its youth, and that seven of the disciples of Loyola are at the present moment settled in that canton., The Protestaht cantons and 'some of the Roman. Catholic, with the recollection of the history of the Jesuits fresh in their remembrance, have taken alarm at the step taken by Lucerne; and; anticipatiig the worst consequences from it-have de man(ded the instant expulsion of the obnoxious priests. The subject has beei fornially dis cussed in the Swiss Diet; and we cannot better put our readers in pos session of the 'ieal state'f of affairs, than by presenting them with a short resume of the debates. Th'e...
DIRECT AND INDIRECT TAXATION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 2 August 1845
DIRECT AND INDIRECT :TAXATI ON. (From the London Atlans.) .By far the most satisfactory 'and en 'couraging feature of the recent debutes on finanice, is the admission by men of all.parties of the superiority of direct over indirect taxation. Lord Sandon, .;'rom. the Conservative benches, an .noo'nced I" that the time had now ar Vived when it became the duty of the Legislature to increase the comfort and happinesa of the working classes, by promoting the industry of the country, 'by removing the taxes upon manufac tures, arid th.se levied by the excise 'and customs;" and from the. Opposi tion, Mr. Forster, the able and en lightened member for. "Berwick i' the far north," echoed back his announce. :ment. Sir Robert Peel received it with favour, and Lord John Russell, -bylhis silence, gave assent to it. The principle had, indeed but one opponent. Hes was the intriguing Air. Benjamin -lHawes, who proposes to resign soaip-boiling in favour of the presidency of the Board of Trade should t...

MR C. CAMPEELL'S SECOND LETTER TO HIS EXCELLENCY SIR CEORGE GIPPS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 9 August 1845
MRi . CAMPBELL'S SECOND LETTER TO HIS EXCELLENCY SilL CEORGE GIP, PS. I will now go on to examine, the claims which may be made on your part and on ours-the regulations by which youi seek to carriy ut your views, and the manner in which I believe the interests of both- parties might be reconciled, in. acbrdahncb with justice; 'The'squattei, as I hlave ali' ady ob served, placed himself in an'anoma lous position by commencing opera tions without making aiiy i?pecific terms with his landloid, the .Crown, bn which account his claims must be reduced to those: first principles of equity from which law is :derived; to begin ait the beginning, Black stone tells us "that the occupation of that which is waste, and the improve ment of that which -is useless, are the original elements: of property.'

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE RIGHT REVEREND THE LORD BISHOP OF AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 9 August 1845
ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. TO. THE RIGHT REVEREND THE LORD BISHOP OF AUSTRALIA. MY Lonai,- Your informants about squatting affairs in general have, either willingly 6r unwitL tingly, imparted some obliqiity to your judgment in these matters. This is evident from the entire tenor of your opinion expressed to Lord Stanley; in corroboration and recommendation of Sir George Gipps's proposals for the new 'Squatting Regulations. So far from their tending to im prove and promote religion, morals, social and civil coinforts; they will, it strikes me, if persisted in and carried out, engender all sorts of evil' passions-:.as hatred; desire of revenge, gambling, usury, barbas rism, and spread ruin throughout the country. So far from being imiipartial; as they are intended and represented to be; 'they are ca'culated and tley wvill add. power to: the posterlul, wealth' to the :rich;: nd 'd riie- the less affluent houeless wanderers on the.tace of the earth. I appeal to your good sense, my -Lord, ...
