MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 17 April 1841
MELEOUENE. We have been disappointed in not having it in our power to give a more complete account of the Melbourne Races. Judging from the weather we have had at Corio, the days were very unfavorable for any thing like anant mated display, and we should imagine that the affair, although admirably planned,. would .fall considerablyv, short oF general expectation, whether as regardS pleasure to the spectators, or satisfaction to the competitors. In the absence of any maans of giving a com plete and authentic report of the wh'Te proceeding, we refrain from giving the various rumours afloat concern ts them. and must content ourselves with the following, accuunt of the first day's races, from the Gazette.

LOSS OF THE BRIG AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 17 April 1841
LOSS OF THE BRIG AUSTRALIA. SINCE our last publication, we have ob tained more fully the particulars of the melancholy loss of the Australia, Cap tain Yule, by fire, on her passage from Leith to South Australia and Port Phil lip. The Australia was a fine brig of about 250 tons, built at Dundee, and was on her first voyage when this catas trophe occurred. She sailed from Leith on the 2nd October, with five cabin and fifteen steerage passengers, and on the 29th December, when within four or five hundred miles of the Cape of Good Hope, she was destroyed by fire. At about eight o'clock on the evening of that day a smell of fire was observed, and soon after smoke was seen escaping through the crevice into the cabin and steerage. A rigorous search was im mediately instituted by the Captain, but although there were visible proofs of the existence of a fire somewhere, the exact locality could not be ascer tained until the deck was broken open, when the flames immediately burst forth, and it...

THE MARINE BAROMETER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 24 April 1841
THE MARINE BAROMETER. STORn~S, according to the theory of Colonel Reade, do not advance in a direct line, bnt in a circle or parabola, like a whirlwind, and by the timely consultation of the marine barometer, may in a great measure be avoided by ships which are liable to be overtaken by them. A confirmation of Colonel Reade's valuable theory is found in a letter from Mr Marshall, formerly com. mander of one of the Honorable East India Company's ships, which was published some years ago, the sub joined abridged account of which will be read with interest by all who take pleasure in the triumph of science over ignorance and prejudice. Mr. Marshall strongly recommends commanders of vessels to pay the most pointed attention to the indications of the marine barometer, which unever fails, by the fall of the mercury, to indicate an approaching storm. The seaman is thus enabled by bringing his ship to the wind, and other pre parations, to secure to himself the best chance of escaping damage...

COLONIAL POLITICS. THE MIDDLE DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 24 April 1841
COLON(ZAL POLITICS. THE MIDDLE DISTRICT. There is a lull in the whirlpool of Politics just now, which affords an opportunity of taking a survey of the affairs of our neighbours, free from that mist of prejudice which is so apt to arise in the heat of the discussion of opposite interests. We have no hesitation in admitting that the."- middle district " will con tinue fo be a prosperous and im portant colony, notwithstiading its sepira'tion from the southern and northern districts. 'I he land is certainly not of the. same uniform good quality as in Australia Felix; yet there are large tracts of excel lent soil scattered over its surface, such as the vine-trellised garden of illawarra, the fertile banks of the Manning? the Hunter, and the H awkesbury, and the wheat-bearing plnins of Argyle, where the produce has reached upwards of ninety bushels an acre. 'I here is room and verge enough for hundreds of thousands of emigrants in that dis trict alone. It has been said that it can never r...

VAN DZE1ENS D LAND. (Frlun the IIobstrt Town Advcrtiser.) The. Present 'Times. - It is said among. those well. informed, that the scarcity of cash which now presses so heavily on this community, will most probably be relieved after the 10th instant, as the banks at present being determined to withhold discounting generally till that time. We have heard a motive at:ributed, but it is o0iW so unworthy that we cannot be lieve it. Thistles again. - It is really too bad that the Town Surveyor, or who sover else has authority in such matters, sets remonstrance at defiance, and still permits this abominable weed to go to sed in the suburban streets. The late dry weather has set the winged seeds flying in all directions; and next year we expect the only vegetables the gardeners will be able to bring to market, will be thistles. We would suggest as the best method to rid the colony of this monstrous pest, which is becoming worse and worse every year, the formation of associations in the vari...
