COMMITTALS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 10 April 1841

COMMITTALB. - On Saturday last, a man named Samuel Brown, alias Thomas, was committed to take his trial for a robbery committed about three weeks ago, on the premises of Mr Unkles of Ashby Village; he was captured in Melbourne, where he has been sporting and showing himself off since the robbery. SHus P-STEAIS .I.-On Wednesday last, two men, of the names of Scott and Boucher were committed to take their trial for stealing a sheep, the property of Mr Roadknight. Scott had been seen in the act of carrying off the sheep, which they had previously slaughtered, and a man answering to the description of Boucher was assisting. As there is every reason to believe that Boucher is not the accomplice, he being able to establish an alibi, and his brother having disappeared, he has been admitted to bad, and a warrant has been issued for the one who has absented himself. It appears, that Mr Roadknight has lost as many as fifteen sheep within, a few months, and for a long time supposed that the bl...

IMPORTANCE OF AGRICULTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 17 April 1841

IMPORTANCE OF AGRICULTURE. On former.occasions we expressed our opinion that sheep ,farming can: never continue to be the permanent and. principal occnpation of any prospei-ous and thickly populated country.- In a newly-opened terri tory it presents the readiest means of turning extensive tracts of land into profitable occupation, in a quicker. manner than any other branch of enterprise. But as the colony. advances, agriculture must spread from the centres of popula tion, and encroach upon the limits and importance of thei grezing and wool-growing interests, until it ul timately attains that rank'which it must'ever hold in every self.supporting and really prosperous community. The impolicy of neglecting agri-, culture to the- undue encourage mcnt of sheep-farming, has been ex cmplified in the case of Spain, where the broad sheepwalks extend from one end of the kingdom to the other, and are protected by legal enactments from appropriation to any other purpose. , The superior quality ...

MISCELLANEA, [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 17 April 1841

ZVKe SCoLLANTA aA, The fire at Plymouth Dock-yard is now pretty well ascertained to have been the result of accident, a large heap of materialis liable to spontaneous com. bustion having accumulated under the shed of the Taleona, which shed or roof, it appears, took fire before the hull of the vessel. It seems extraor dinary that this was not discovered at .an earlier period of the inquiry. The Great Western Railway, has r,un 29,200,000 miles, and carried 1,520,000 passengers, without any accident fatal to a passenger, from its opening, two yearsand three months. It is said that the -Prussian Govern ment has stopped on the frontier 650 horses, bought on account of the French Goveinment. A'despatch has been sent to Berlin, demanding an explanation on the subject, and' threat. ening reprisals should the 'frontier remain closed. The French Govern ment has also sent a note to Turin, demanding explanations of the arma-. ments now going on at Piedmont. It has been discovered that Darmes, ...

THE GREENLAND FISHERY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 17 April 1841

TIH GREENLAND FISHERY. Never was .the labor, capital, and enterprise, which are necessarily haz arded by all-ihoie; who embark in this dangerous fishery, attended' with so little success as, they have been this year. From the great loss which must have been sustairied now: for a number of seasons, by most, if not the whole of the parties, who have sent vessels out on the perilous voyage of whale fishing in the arctic regions, we shluld think that many of such vessels will- for the future be put into, some more remuner ative employment.. None of the vessels have obtained more than two whales, and about half their number have re turned clean. The Hecla of Kirkcaldy was wrecked in the month of June, and some others received considerable damage among the ice. Of course, all who are engaged in the whale fishery. are more or less sufferers; not only the owvners of the ships, but the captain and the crew also, must have, to use a trite but expressive, phrase,." made a bad spec" this year. ...

WRECK OF THE BRIG RAPID THE Rapid, A. Devlin commander, left Sydney on the 24th of December last, bound for China. She made Norfolk Island on the 3rd of January. and for eight days afterwards experienced contrary winds and calms. Captain Devlin finding there was not sufficient water to last to Guam, resolved to visit the island of Hotumah, to get the requi site supply, and accordingly shaped the vessel's course. On the 13th January, at noon, in south lat. 22° 48', east long. 1740 40', the island of ltotumah bore. 140 east, distant sixty-eight miles; a reef laid down in the charts in south lat.210 ' 56', east long. 1J50 26', bore NEON, distant 68 miles. The Rapid steered N by W, to keep well clear of the danger, and as night came on a good look.out was ordered to be kept. At 11 p. m., Captain Devlin found by an observation that he was to the northward of the reef, as laid down in the chart, and fifty miles to the west ward by the reckoning.

SUPREME COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 17 April 1841

SUPREME COURT. THIs court opened on Tuesday last, with the usual impressive forms. From the opening address of the Judge, we are inclined to hold a very favourable opinion of.his ability and disposition to do good, in despite of the outcry raised against him by .the Sydney Press. His speech was principally occupied with a detail of the arguments in favour of a local court of juris diction at Port Phillip. The following cases were then dis posed of (we quote from the Gazette): Jeremiah Murphy was indicted fur felqniously stealing, on the 22nd of January last, a quantity of silver amounting to about £7, the property of Thomas Halfpenny, the publican, in Collins-street.-Guilty. John Drumgoold was indicted for stealing a quantity Of small articles of jewellery and apparel from the house ofAnne Hayward.-- Guilty. James Brown was indicted for em hezzling from his employers, Messrs Arden and Strode, a quantity of money in notes and coin.-Guilty. Hlenry Watson was indicted for an assault, w...

It is supposed that she had been lost some where in the Straits at a considerable distance from the coast - candles in great quantities, and other portions of the wreck, being strewed along the coast to the extent of fifty miles. From the quantity of barnacles adhering to the articles found, it is supposed th...

CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GEELONG ADVERITISER.. SIm,--As |I happened to be an 'eye witness to an affair on Friday week in which I consider the constabuiary interfered in a very unwarrantable manner, I trust that you will consider the following remarks worthy of in. sertion. I am aware, sir, that for some week. past, there has existed a band of mids night marauders, which has this week been broken up, partly by your cen sures and partly by the weather. I consider that the constabulary would have deserved the thanks of the public had they captured any of these riotous youths; but instead of that, they take the opportunity of pouncing upon a respectable individual, who was amusing himself with a few friends after the cares of the day, in a manner which could not disturb the peace or offend the propriety of the most fas tidious stickler for strict civil discip. line. The person who was singled ont on this occasion was Mr Tulloh, who unfortunately for the constables, hap pens ...

THE JETTY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 17 April 1841

THE JETTY We henceforth abandon all expec. tation of ever seeing this important improvement to our harbour com pleted. We never had any hopes of the gaug accomplishing such a task, simple as it is; for dnring three months constant work upon it, they have done less than the same num ber of free laborers would do in as many days. When tenders for the cartiug of stone were called for, we imagined that a fresh vigor would be thrown into the operations. But Disappointment again follows us. for, after the lapse of a fortnight from the appearance of the notice we find that the tenders are to be forwarded to Melbourne, and that another ten or twenty days will thus be lost. We understand, too, that the contract is to be made for an indefinite period exceeding three months ! When we look back at the past, and witness the proceedings of the present moment, we think we are justified in cautioning the public against entertaining any hopes of, or forming any schemes upon, the completion of this a...

SYDNEY. IMPORTANT DECISIONr [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 17 April 1841

SYDNEY. IMPORTANT DECISIONr Cliffe v. TJhr.--This was an action to recover damages for a trespass on a squatting station at Doona range, on the Mookia River, Liverpool Plains, It appeard from the evidence that the plaintiff had purchased the right of the run from a person named Merrick, in the year 1837, and in 1S38 the de fendant had brought upon it his cattle, sheep, and horses, by which the plain tiff's cattle were prevented from getting at the water, and they were consequently much deteriorated in value. The defence set up was, that the defendant had originally possesion of the run, and that the person from whom the plaintiff purchased was an intruder; this was not, however, sub. stant;ated by the defendant's witnesses, and the jury, after about three quarters of an hour's consultation, returned a verdict for the plaintiff, damages £100. Wool, Sheep, and Cattle. - During one day last week, such was the influx of wool, that no less than one hundred drays passed down George street...
