They ran along thie land for many hundreds of miles, but could discover no inlet or harbour to winter in, the whole line of coast being Walled in with ice. Two volcanos were seen, to which the names of Terror and Erebus have been given. The barrier, as laid down by the French, is incorrect, and it is believed the Terror and Erebus sailed inside the tier of ice mountains mis taken by them for terra firma. The position of the magnetic pole has been discovered, which was the pria cipal object of the explorers.

TOWNSHIPS ON THE SYDNEY ROAD [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 1 May 1841
TOWNSB[FPS'ON THE SYDNEY ROAD ON the Port Phillip road, between Yass and Melbourne, there are three townships lately laid out by the Go vernment. The first of these is Gundagai; near th"e crossing place of the Murrum bidgee, sixty miles from Yass. In this township there is no house of any description,,neither is there any in its neighbourhood, except one public house and a blacksmith's shop. The next township is Albury, sit nated (140. miles from Gundagai). at the crossing place of the.Huine River; a more eligible spot than: this could not have been selected for a township. It is on the bank of a splendid river. It is on the high-road from Sydney to Melbourne. Itis suirouiided by hun dreds of sheep and cattle stations, in supplyiing the wants of which a number of mechanics and tradesmen of allsorts will find constant employdment; and there is no pla'ce wiiliii forty five miles of it, on whii noeriilier town can be built. A's: yet, there are only two or ilree houses here, a public ho...
CRIMINAL SIDE. (Before Judge Willis and a Jury of twelve.) [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 1 May 1841
CRIMINAL SIDE. (Before Judge Willis and a Jury of twelve.) Walter William Maxwell, was indicted &nbsp; for larceny in stealing a coat, and various other articles, the property of John Cotter at Geelong, on the 7th February, which had been entrusted to him to convey to Geelong. The prisoner, under his Honor's direction to the Jury was discharge, his Honor deciding that admitting the Crown Prosecutor's opening of the case to be fully proved, no animus furandi could be proved. William Gimmel was indicted for an assault upon Richard Bell, with intent, &c., at Geelong, on the 3rd March. The second count charged him with a common assault. The prisoner was convicted on the clearest testimony. He was sentenced to be confined in Her Majesty's gaol, at Melbourne, for the space of two years, and kept to hard labuur,being the utmost sentence which his Honor could inflict upon him. Patrick Keaton was discharged, the Crown Prosecutor not being able to substantiate the case. Willia...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 1 May 1841
LOC.AL zNTEZZlGENCZX. EMiItATION F?OM I. IELBOUIINE.-' The Port Phillip GHzette had Iltely.a pompous paragraph about emigration from Sydney to Melbourne, but we beg to remind' him that the stream merely flows through Melbourne towards Corio, where it finnlly emptles itself. Corio will be to-Melbourne what Melbourne .is to Sydney. The following statement will startle' our neighbours a bit, and act as a guide to the Sydney emigrants in their search after the most promising arena for future enterprise. Notwith standing the smothering laws which` prohibit our direct intercourse with the neighbouring colonies, upwards of 150 individuals have arrived at Corio, by vessels from Melbourne, during the last month. The number of departures in the same time was under 30. We have no means of ascertaining the number of those who prefer the overland route, but to be within the truth, we will suppose the result to be the same as by sea. Migration therefore is going on from Melbourne to Corio, at the...

A TALE OF TEMPERANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 8 May 1841
A TALE OF TEMPERANCE. We entered one day, (say Mr and Mrs S. C. Hall, in their work on Ire land) a cottage in a suburb of Cork; a woman was knitting stockings at the door; it was as neat and comfortable as any in the most prosperous district of England. We tell her brief story in her own words as nearly as we can recall them. My husband is a wheelwright, and always earned his guinea a.week; he was a good workman, and neither a bad man nor a bad husband ; but the love for the drink was strong in him, and it wasn't often that lie brought me home more than five shillings out of his one-pound-one on a Saturday night, and it broke my heart to see the poor childre too ragged to send to school, to say nothing of the starved look they'had out of the little I could give them. Well, God be praised, he took the pledge; and the next Saturday he laid twenty-one shillings upon the chair you sit upon. Oh Il didn't I give thanks on my bended knees that night i! Still I was fearful it wouldn't last,...
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 8 May 1841
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. The London Gazette, December 15, contains the official notification of the appointment of George Grey; Esq., to be Governor and Commander.in-chief of the Province of South Australia; Captain Grey is also appointed Resi. dent Commissioner of public lands. It is understood that the Home Go vernment have sanctioned the negocia tion of a loan of '400,000 on landed securities, to relieve South Auscralia. The loan will be made by scrips of£100 each. This wiill certainly relieve the actual residents of that province, bat will not go far to repair the damage which its credit has received at home, both with respect to trade, and as a desirable place for immig'ration.

DISASTERI AT ACR E. O~ the 6th November, three days after the fall of this redoubtable fortress, and when the British were still re joicing in having achieved, in three hours, and with a loss of only twenty. two killed and forty-four wounded, that ?wlhiclh,-in..its-then inferior state, withstood twelve attacks of Napoleon Bonaparte with a sad loss of human life, they were doomed to suffer a disaster, the origin of which is likely never to be cleared up, though in all probability it has arisen from the loose manner in which powder appears to have been conveyed from place to place by the enemy during the defence of it agaihst the allies; for it seems the approaches to the works from the several magnzines are literally one continued train of powder, requiring the greatest vigilance to remove so as to avoid such conseqences as the one we are about to relate, A column of thickly yellow smuke and dust, at least five. hundred yards in height, with a loud and simultaneous report, suc. ceede...

NAVIGABLE ENTRANCE OF THE MURRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 8 May 1841
NAVIGABLE ENTRANCE OF THE MURRAY. The long disputed problem has at length, we think, been solved in the affirmative. The official report of Mr Pullen, Marine Surveyor to the Go vernment, sets the question of its practicability, in moderate weather at -least, altogether at rest. It would be difficult to overrate the colonial im portance of a direct sea communication with the extensive and fertile tracts watered by. Lakes Alexandrina and Albert, and the Murray for about two hundred miles of its course. The final establishment of the fact indeed, will at once 'direct the attention of the colonists to these splendid districts, and render hundreds of thousands of acres of rich agricultural land, which at one time were considered almost shut out from communication with the capital, of almost. as easy access to mlarket, as the located districts beyond the Barossa and Mount Lofty ranges. S[Here follows a detail of Mr Pullen's operations; but the following con clusions drawn by him will be s...
THE POST OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 8 May 1841
THE POST-OFFICE. No mail has arrived this week, by land or sea ; and imprecations upon our niggardly, heartless government, assail our ears from every quarter. Our commercial interests must suffer severely, and the ties of friendship must also be loosened--the district of Geelongis, as it were, BANISHED from the rest of the colony-we are abandoned by our paternal pro lector-d6omed by the elder colony to a-series of degrading insults, and left. for any thing it: may care, to retrogade in the scale of colonial enterprise. But what is all that compared to the momentous fact that the stoppage of the..mail .will. save so many shillings and pence in the expendilure. What although Cori'o should be swallowed up by an earthquake,- so that none of the coppers are shaken out of Sir George's pocket? But we are not so:easily put-down. -Corio has commenced her career, in gloriotis style: and all the me phitic influence of a " stnpifying despotism" cannot arrest its pro gress. Our-population has i...
