LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 15 May 1841

LOCAL ZNT zraLzzwNCa. THE RANGER, CAPTAIN BRIGNELL. In our last ntimber, wegave some:par. ticulars resp'ecting this vessel and her gallant con&i ander, which obught to give rise to an immediate inquiry into the circumstances of her late visit to Corio. There is surely enough for her to do between, the Customs, the Pilots, and the harbour-master's departmentis. without affording her a week's leave of absence, on a piratical cruize, (for if she came to Corjo for the puroose of ab ducting the captain's paramour, we can call it nothing else.) In addition to the particulars respecting his trial at the police office, we have now to narrate some very remarkable occurrences which attended his departure. On'Saturday morning last the Ranger got under way, but towards evening she ran aground on the bar (or appeared to do so)~, although the channel ought to be well known to the man who marked it off. In the middle of the night a boat's crew landed at the beach of Corio, where from, or f...

SYDNEY. FRAUDS IN PACKING WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 15 May 1841

S~DNZY. FRAUDS IN PACKING WOOL. ITr must be evident that when ten thou. sand bales are offered in one sale, the purchaser can but slightly examine them; they must purchase, in a great measure, on the assurance that the wools have been honestly got up aid packed; should they, however, fre. quently find that their confidence has been misplaced-in other words, that they'have been done, they will of course insist upon more ample means for making examination. This will lead to increased expense, and possibly to the abandonment of the system of dis posing of the wools of the colony by public auction, an evil of still greater magnitude. This state of things may be brought about by the following frauds, which we are sorry to say are beeomin. every year more common. One of the commonest tricks to which we allude is the attempt to pass off unwashed wool for washed. This is accomplished in two ways: one by mixing unwashed fleeces with the washed, forgetting to mention the fact to the purchaser...

VAN DZEEDENS LAND. Colonel Snodgrass.--There is every reason to believe that this very ex cellent ollicer has by this time received the appointment of Governor of th;s, or one of the neigbonring colonies. (Despath.) - Colonel Snodgrass is to receive a valuable appointment. His conduct at St. Sebastian in 1808 was represented to the government by the Duke of Wellington, and a massive gold sword was presented to him by the Earl of-Glasgow at a joyous festival, given to him by his fellow-townsmen. -English paper.

Asthe;aseaon of the year has just.set in wizen the waetle treeyieds: thLe greatest quantity of pure gum, we need offer no apology for giving insertion tothe following .particulars respecting the tree and its produce. The time, how ever, is not yet come for directing at. tention to it as an article of commerce. At present the colonists have too many c:oncerns of weightier importance to attend to.

This species of Mimosa grows in the sandy deserts of Africa, Arabia Petrwa, and Egyp?t.'

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. PORT NATAL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 15 May 1841

CAPL - OZ' GOOD OPE. S J 3ORT NATAL, TuIt following is extracted from a letter from plort Natal, dated December 8th, -1840 - I left the colony in May last, to pro ceed by land, in company with a few others from Granff.R.einet, and travelled ii all secnrity thioughthe few tribes of Griquas, Bechuanas, &c., without the least interruption. A traveller need not fear in the least to do so, even alone. The country was then, and still is tranquil, and the pasturage in a fine state, particularly from the boundary of the country of which the emigrant farmers have taken possession to Natal. No farm house could we see until we had passed this boundary, but thence they gradually increase, the greater part of the people having left their respec tive camps lately to occupy the several portions of land allotted them. It is almost incredible4he number of game we, saw on the road-bartebeeste, bles and spring bocks particularly, and which afford the traveller some sport. The lions are trouble...

SPECIAL SURVEYS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 15 May 1841

SPECIAL SURVEYS. We are inclined to give credit to Lord John Russell and his coadju tors, for a zealous desire to reform the disordered aff~iirs of the various colonial dependencies of Great Britain, which have been so much neglected by his predecessors in ofice. But there must be many points upon which even he is incom petent to decide, from the limited and partial sources of information to which he is necessarily confined, at such a distance from the objects of his care. While he has our thanks for the favorable notfce he has taken of this colony, and for rescuing us from the depressing influence of the Sydney government, we cannot but regard the dictatorial manner in which he has laid down the land regulations as an instance ot self-conceited arrogance. The measures which have been so suddenly put in force (the Uni form Price and Special Survey sys tem) are not in themselves so ob. jectionable as the manner in which they have been thrust upon us. We might easily conceive that the...
