INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 8 May 1841
ZNDZA. The most distressing accounts of the ravages of the cholera at Malacca have hbeen received from that settlement. The disease now prevalent there was at first stipposed not to be cholera, but its fatal progrese soon left no doubt on the subjeict. The Chinese were the first victims. It theii attacked the Malaya, and five inmates of one house were carried off in a few hours. Sub. sequnently it spread among the native Christians.. Three vessels with 5000 Portuguese soldiers, have just arrived at Goa from Europe. Thtey have had a long and tedious passage, having put off con siderable time at Mozambique. A fracas which assumed rather a serious aspect, lately occurred betwixt the Governor and the commander.of a French cor vette., The Governor of Goa issued an order that no French or English vessels should be permitted to remain at Gna, so long as there might be a likelihood of war between Englinid and France. The order to this effect had been issued in somewhat more perer'p tory and...
SYDNEY. THE WOOL MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 8 May 1841
SYDNEY. Tun Wool. MARKET.-We quote from the Sydney Herald the following account of the wool market taken from the Liverpool Gazette of December 21. The large publlic sales of Colonial Wool terminated on the 18th December, the total quantity offered reached 10,000 bales, chiefly Australian, Van Diemen's Land, and Cape. The sale commenced heavily, but recovered in its progress, and continued to the end with animation, supporting the prices of October last, and nearly the whole was disposed of. iMurder near Ilinton. --A murder was perpetrated on Saturday evening, 27th March, about four miles from Hlinton on the estate of Lochfoile. It appears that a small farmer named Mulcahy dispossessed -an aborigine of some ducks, which he had shot in a swamp in the neighbourhood of his farm; the native threatened, and but too well revenged himself. Mulcahy sent his daughter, a fine girl of fifteen years of age, accompanied by her little brother, eleven years old, to a neighbour to procure some flou...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE RANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 8 May 1841
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. &nbsp; &nbsp; TIlE RANGER.-We have been highly honored this week by a visit from Her Majesty's Revenue Cruizer the Ranger. We hailed her arrival with pleasure, naturally. supposing that it was.for the purpose of forwarding' some work of public importance,-some act which at least, would not disgraoe her Majesty's service. In vain, however, have we looked for any useful result. Rumour has been very busy on this subject, and we shall leave it to the penetration of obtr readers to discover, whether her distinguished.olicerebe on -Her:Majesty's service, or on a little amorous expedition ofihis own. The following trial at the Police Office may throw some light on the subject; premising, however, that the ostensible purpose of the Ranger's visit was to have her bottom cleaned.

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 15 May 1841
SYDNEY. T/te Times.-We are glad to have it in our power to state that trade is beginning to show strong symptoms of revival, and though sheep and wool areat low figures, there is an eager demand for the latter; so much so, thatsome individuals who were inclined to hold on for a few months, have been induced to sell at a trifling ad vance. We have every reason to expect that the next account of wool sales from England, will warrant our merchants in giving a higher price than they have yet done. We have heard of- one lot that was disposed of at 164d. That confidence in our mer cantile houses is being restored, and money getting a little more plentiful, we, with satisfaction, refer to the late sale of land by Mr. Lyons, the gross amount of whch was upwards -of @27,000. On an-occasion of this kind, we never recollect seeing a larger assemblage of our wealthy colonists piesent. From the satisfactory mac ner in which thisssale went off, we anticipate a considerable change for the better i...
