SQUATTING REGULATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 14 August 1845
SQUATTING REGULATIONS. Froti tlie Sydney Hernii. WE give below a draft of proposed regulations for the dcpasturing of the waste lands of the Crown bes yond the limits oe locations which we publish at the request of a cor respondent. We have so often ex pressed our opinion on the consti tional question, involving the right of the colonists to the control of these lands, that in calling atten tion to these regulations (if the Go. vernor .is willing to grant them), we are under no apprehension of being misunderstood ;-unquestiona bly our right to the control cannot be decided in this country : but that is no reason why the details of the question should not be fully consi dered. As matters now stand, our more immediate object is rather to look to the terms'on which the Crown is said to be wiliing to a'aopt us as tenants for a period of years cer tain. We might have preferred a longer lease, but twelve years is no despicable torm,--and if the pay. m-ents demasided are not excessive;, we...

As the over land mail left Sydney on the day the question was put. no regular repert of the proceedings has reached this district. Our cohtemporaries the Herald and Couriei, however, have obtained, through some private chan nel, an outline of the hiiswer given by the Colonial Secretary, which we subjoin. As this outine" many it be strictly correct, we shall not. enter uponi its minute examination; but it contains certa;n broad points which cannot be misunderstood. The first is, that the Governor will.not take any fur ther steps towards the introductioi of any new system on his own resPon sibily, notwithstanding the extraor dinary powers conferred upon h...

NEWSPAPER WRITING. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 14 August 1845
NEWSPAPER WRITING.--Neewspaper writing has grown to be ao art by it self. Many a literary man, who thought that because " the greatei in cludes the less" every author is ex officio qualified to be an editor, has sunk back into the rear-ranks and minor ranks of " the press," after some smart writing had shown at once his bookish talent and his. ability to deal with facts. Others who could pour'.forthi volumes have failed, because tlhey could not cope with the hydraul.c pressure or prompt selection of salieit poiots needed for the space nnd rapid comments of the journal. Take tlh best papers of either London or Paris, different as the circumistances of thei nriters may be, and you mnust allow that it is not everybody that could so seize-the moral and spirit of passiing histlory,-Speclator.

.LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. SPEECH OF MR WENTWORTII ON THE ADbRESS. Mr Wentworth wished to say a few words. on this .occasion, not indeed in opposition to the Address, but in order to express the satisfaction which he felt personally at the hitter paragraph of the speech to Which this Address was included as a reply.

MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 14 August 1845
·MELBOUJRNE, THE COLLEGIATE? INSTITUTION. We attended yesterday at the school room to see the distribution of the prizes, and were much gratified to hear some of the speeches given by four of the pupils. Two of the scho lars came forward, and recited the parts of Brutus and Cassius-wherein Brutus regrets that Cassius had not forwarded certain sums of money. Two other youths then enacted Bru tus and Cassius prior to the death of Ctasar,.and really we must say that they were very perfect in the very lengthened speeches they gave, and required no prompter, and occasion ally suited the action to the word with very good effect. This institu .tion should be patronised; it is doing great things for the growing youth-the senators and law-givers ': in future" of Australia Felix. His Honor Mr La T'robe presided at the moeeting, and distributed the various prizes to the youths in whose favbr they had been accorded " a priori."
