THE TIMBER MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 24 April 1841

TniE TIaMBER MAlKET.-There is at present a great demand for all descrip tions of building materials except joists, which unfortunately happensato be the only article in the market. This is ow ing to the absurd regulations existing among the- Tasmanian - sawyers, by which they compel their customers to buy what they choose to dictate, and withhold what-is wanted. They will not sell a board unless you take a joist also.--This-syssem -is almnist iiicredibly absurd, aid ,we'hope our. tlobart TownI and La'inc'ston' conrtemporaries will join with us iri pointing out the true interests of the sawyers in this particu. lar. Let tlhem fix a fair price. upon each kind of timber. instead of the * equal quantity of each" system which is-at present in, force. We will freely pay a higher rate for some descriptions of timber; but we must have what we want, or none at all. When we want shingles, joists are very clumsy substi tutes. Let -them amend these stupid regulations. -and they will then find a...

Markets. CORIO, 1st May, 1841. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 1 May 1841

odnro, 1st May," 1841. The only feature worthy of remark this week, is the very great scarcity of light timber, deals, weat herboards, and broad paling, in fact there is none to be had ; while the stock on hand of heavy joists, &c. meets with no deaind, It lies with the Tasmanian timber dealers to remedy this evil. They ought to send their heavy timber to Sydney and they would then find a profitable market for their lighter stuff at Corio.

We have much, pleasure in announcing the-safe arrival in Melbourne on T'ues day evening of the remainder of the Corner Inlet party, who, it will be recollectlid, remained at the company's depot on Prince Albert River, witll the intention of making their way overland.

Mr 13rodribb has kindly favored us' with a perusal of his journal, from which we have col lected' the following intelesting par ticilars concerning the journey. The party left the depot: on Prince Albert River for Melbourne on the inrning of Tuesday, the 23rd ultimo, keeping the west bank of the 'I'Tara (i lie rmal!er of the two rivers which lTow into Corner Inlet) for rine miles; here they crossed, keeping a niorth west courlee until tlhey came ulion a mnrked-tree line ('apparently . that...

MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 1 May 1841

WISOB.LLANEA, Defenceless Enenies.--Nacir Shah, when encouraging the Persians to attack the Turks, said, " You need not have any fear respecting this nation, for God has given them but two hands --one of which.is absolutely necessary to keep on their caps, and the other to liold up their trousers ; and if they had.a third it would be employed to hold their pipes. They have therefore none to spare for a sword or shield." Treatment of Hlorses. - The first thing that the groom or -coachmrn commonly does when he- brings his horses ini is to. take the. bucket and brush, and wash the legs thloroughly. This is a very misqhievous practise at all times and, very hazardouis if there is a huge hush of hair at the fetlock. ' Well, I dhi't knom; but I've cleaned my horses so for these twenty years, and none of 'em took no harm.' Such .was the reply of.hn old coachman to ro the other day, when I read this remark to him ; and the reply may be perfectly true; for aninmals, like men, will often get ...

GIPPS' LAND.—SPECIAL SURVEYS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 1 May 1841

GIPPS' LAND.-SPECIAL SURVEYS. The madness of the Melbourne speculators seems to be quite in curable. They are rushing into the fire the same as if they had never been burnt. They are periodically seized with fits of monomania, dur ing the paroxysms of which they are haunted by one pervading idea in the contenplation of which they blindly disregard everything which does not feed their frenzy. A few months ago, Portland Bay was the only bait they would swallow, just the same as now, when nothing will go down but an ugly mouthful of " Gippe' Land." The result will be a.ffrightful relapse into another fit of papyrophobia. No doubt Strelenskia is a very fair portion of this beautiful province, but that it is superior to the hitherto unrivalled spots already' so well known, tried, and appreciated, we really have not sufficient faith to believe. There is one great benefit resulting to Corio from the exclusive attention which is at present engrossed by Corner Inlet : namely, it removes the ...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 1 May 1841

Steam Rac,.--Between the hours of five and six o'clock last evening the vicinity oi the Flagstaff was crowded with spectators, to witness the coming in of the rival steamers Rose and Vic toria, and disappointment was mani fasted in the countenances of many at -their not arriving before dark. Pre. cisely at seven the Victoria ran along. side the Commercial Wharf, when it was ascertained that she had 4eft :Mor peth at seven o'clock in the morning, but the Rose was not to start from thence till eight, which time was to be allowed for. The backers of the Rose were still sangnine after this explana tion, but at nine o'clock no signs were visible of hei approach. As the wind was from the south-west outside, it afforded a fair opportunity of trying the two boats agaii.st a head wind and sea. The Rose certainly laboured under a disadvantage, owving to her bottom being rather foul, and from the stiffness of her engines, but it seems to be the general opinion that sIhe will never be able to c...
