To the Editor of tIe Geelony Advertiser and Sjuatters' Adrocate, Sil,-In reply to the enquiries of a Friend to our cause made in your last publication, I feel much pleasure in informing your correspondent that the Geelong Total Abstinence Society still exists, and that its original sup porters are not wearied, nor despair ing of the ultimate success of their ef forts.

MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 3 September 1845
MISCELLANEA. The saving on 'tumblers, decanters, and table glasses, by the new tariff, will be aboutone penny per lb. weight, or about three-halfpence in the price of a dozen wine glasses. A letter frow Mons, D'Abadie} dated Aden, Oct. 17.,.states that he has dise covered the source of the White bile, in the Ganira coutintry. The total importations of cattle since the passing of the Act 5th and 6th Victoria, cap. 47, (July 9, 1S42,) to Jan. 5, 1845, have been as follows: -'980 oxen and biulls, 2561 cows, 164 calves, 3545 sheep, 38 lambs, and 1042 swine and liogs. At the Bucks Conservative feed, the other day, the sapient Dukle of Buckingham expressed his conviction, that if protection to agriculture be withdrawn, Great Britain must "dwindle into a mere colony, to be dictated to by other and less powerful nations !" The Dublin Mercantile Advertiser asserts, very circumstantially, that her Majesty will pay a visit to Ireland ini July. We understand that the late Marquis of Westministe...
BRITISH TRADE WITH CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 3 September 1845
BRITISH TRADE WITH CHINA. How rnuch British trade is likely to be benefitted by Sir Henry Pottinger's la bours in China, may be in some measure conjectured by the increase which has already taken place in that trade, of which we find mention made in the speech of the Mayor of Mancherter, at an entertainment given in that town to Sir Henry, on the 26th December .: ~ I have heard an eiclamation which proceeded from one of our country man, ufacturera tipon the subject, which I dare Say will convey some idea to the m.'nds of gentlemen present, of the ad vantages which we are likely to derive from tho extensioh of iutercourse with China. 'Why,' said the worthy manuu factnrer, ' all the mills we now have will hardly make yarn to find them with nightcaps and socks." The tariff which Sir Henry Pottinger obtained reduced the amount of import-deties in China to one-fourth: To shew the effec which it has already had, the Mayor quoted a statement of the exports tot China during the years 1843 a...
RICHARD HOWITT'S IMPRESSIONS OF AUSTRALIA FELIX. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 3 September 1845
RICAIRD ilOWITT'S IMPRIESSION OF AUSTRALIA FELIX. (Prom the Spectator.) FROM his own incidental account, it appears, that Richard Howitt, the brother of William, was born and brought up upon an English farm, and accustomed to "handle all sorts of tools, agricultural and others." But neither the facts befoke his eyes, nor experience of the hard reality, could imp~ress him with the imporlance of of the truth as it is in nature, over the .mediumn by which it is conveyed to the minds of others. The poetaster and literateur were born:with Rich ardnt he "would die in them at the stake ;" "fire' would only subdue his preference for words and fancies by decomposing him altegother. What could induce such a man to turn settler in a new country, seems difficult-to divine, even though a brother and brother-in-law were about to seek their fortune in Aus tralia Felix; however, to Port Phil lip he went; and his four years' lucubrations exhibitasingular picture of the pastoral mind engaged in prac ...

REMOVAL OF MR LA TROBE.

What manner of.nan Mr- Head is we have not the slightest notion of ; indeed, we are not aware of ever before having heard his. name but we are' perfectly willing to take him on chance, for we know that we' canntia-possibly change for the worse. .
