THE ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 9 August 1845
11t HE El 7 ION. As we. anticipatedý this affair has phssed bff in a mariinr calculated to excite our laughter, as much as our pity for the aetors concerhed therein. Two new candidates whose names had never been previously whispered; having been brought forward at the eleventh hour, a contingency for which the friends of the avowed can didate were not prepared,-a gross piece of negligenbe on their part; for the tactics of the opposite party were sufficiently evident, even fifty miles off. The cohsequb~nce was that the friends bf the new candidates having-their arraigetents all com pleted were victorious. It so happenis that the imenibers returned are good men and trie (Captain O'Connell and Mr Thomas Elder Boyd); but this is only the re sult of an accident, the great mdij6rity of the real electors of the distiict, having not the remotest conscious ness of the part played by theif proxies - the inob of Melbourne. This evil arises from the absurdity (pointed out by us tivb years ago) ...

THE WIMMERA [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 9 August 1845
THE WIMMERA---The statement made in our last, that two horses with saddles and bridles on, had been seen straying near the Wimmera, and the supposition that their riders had been drowned, has created con siderable alarm in Geelong, among the friends of Mr J. M. Airey, and Mr Hugh Mann, the two gentlemien having gone in that direction about a &nbsp; fortnight ago, on an exploring expedi tion, There is ever, only a re mote probability the death of the riders of the horses so found; and no evidence whatever beyond the more correspondence of numbers, to con nect the identity of the two parties. Another reason for supposing that Messrs. Airey and Mann are safe, is, that they were accompanied by a servant, and a spare horse, so that any accident occuring to the two leaders, would.have been reported by the servant, unless, indeed, the im probable assumption that the whole party perished, should be adopted, THE CUSToMsi nother illustra tion of the inj ice and incon venience caused b...

PORTLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 14 August 1845
PORTLAND. SALE OF SHEEP.-Yesterday, pursu ant to advertisement, the sheep, &c., belonging to the late B. P. Winter, Esq., were brought to the hammer by Mr. Wm. M'Dowell, the attendance from town and country was most numerous, the weather being remarkably fine; the bidding 'Was anything but spirited notwithstanding the enticing invitations and earnest appeals of the worthy auctioneer, who did his utmost to realise something like prices for his employers. The lollowing are the lots in the order in which they were put up, together with the prices and the names of the purchasers: Lot 1.-2380 sheep, consisting of 1500 Mixed Ewes, aged, and 880 flog gat wedders, price 4s. per head, bought by Mr. Owen Reilly.

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 14 August 1845
: SYDNEY. STHH. AUSTRALIAN C?LUB.- TIIO affairs of this institution are likely to occupy some share of public attention, Mr G. C. Turner having sent a cir cular to most of the members, in forming them that he has been in structed to throw the whole concern into chancery, and to file a bill against the committee for accounts, &c., and, in short, to break up the establish ment. This arises from the ill feeling engendered by the late discussions. Sydney HIerald. PUBLIC SALES IN NEW ZEALAND. -On Tuesday last, Messrs Brown and Campbell sold by auction thirty head of cattle, and notwithstanding the depression of the times, and critical events, the prices realised were most satisfactory.

WEDNESDAY, 6TH AUGUST, 1845, [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 14 August 1845
WEDNESDAY, 6th AUGUST, 1846, Nisi prius.-Before a common Jury. Anderson v. Jamieson.--This was an action to recover the sum of £36. The declaration contained four counts; the first, for the hire of milch cows, and damage for their non-deliverary ; second for the hire of working oxen ; third for the hire of six milch cows; and fourth, for goods sold and delivered. The defendant had paid into court a certain sum of money, alleging the plaintiff had not suffered greater damage. From the evidence of Samuel Anderson, brother to the plaintiff, it appeared tthat he had taken charge of a itation in the district of Western Port, for Mr Robert Jamieson,. and for his services was to receive one-third of the profits. While in the capacity of mainager for Jamieson, witness had hired from his brother, Dr Anderson, (the present plaintiff,) six milch cows for the use of the station, for which he was to pay one-third of their pro duce; also three working oxen, at 5S, a week per head; he also purchas...

= FUPRI.EME COURT. T;iEsD.DAY, AUGUST 5TIH, 1845. Berbertsou v. Cameron.-?Ris Hono. said, this was an application to the 'c.onrt upon nflidavit, to set aside the writ obtained upon the judglmint in this cause, wsith costs, and that all pro. seedings be stayed thereon; as it was iot even suggestd in the ailfidavit that the writ was issued for a sum beyond the amount due, the alpllication to set aside the judgment and the execution issuing thereon upon that ground could not be maintained. Therefore, con sidering the sum was certain, and that the rule of court did not require the residences to be endorsed upon the writ,- there was nothing upon those grounds to set aside the writ. But there was another ground stated in the allidavit, that it was not set out upon the judgmunt roll, the term in which it was signed. The court possessed, aind would maintain the right of inspecting its own records, and amending or can ceiling them as requisite. The non. insertion of the term, as complained o...
