THE OUTRAGES BY THE BLACKS AT THE WIMMERA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 31 May 1845

THE OUTRAGES BY THE BLACKS AT THE WIMMERA.—In our first re- port of these outrages, we stated that Mr Macpherson had come by his death at the hands of the natives. The first rumour of the affair, how- ever; has turned out to be incorrect, and much exaggerated. It is true that Mr Macpherson was severely wounded ; but we believe this was the result of accident, through the unexpected discharge of a loaded piece carried by one of the party, while out in pursuit of the blacks Mr Macpherson, although lingering in great jeopardy for several days, is now fast recovering, the wound being healthy and all traces of fever gone. The true amount of damage done by the blacks, was as follows :—200 sheep stolen from Major Firebrace ; from 800 to 1000 from Messrs Bailie and Hamilton ; and 40 from Mr Dun- can Paterson. The blacks have been quiet for the last fortnight; but fur- ther outrages are expected to take place. On Wednesday evening an acci- dent occurred from the careless man- ner in which bu...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 31 May 1845

ENGLISH NEWS. By the William Stoveld we have news to the 30th December ; but nothing of importance in public matters had occurred up to that date, there being generally a suspension of political hostilities at that season of the year. The national prosperity still appeared to be steadily advan- cing, and the markets for colonial produce were firm. There was a split among the Char- tists; the following being the declar- ation of those calling themselves in dependent Chartists:— 29, Circus-street, Marylebone.   1. We most distinctly repudiate all connexion with Feargus O'Conner, his partizans, and man worshippers; as we consider him and them to be an utter disgrace to the cause, end to have done almost irreparabley injury to it. 2. We put no confidence in the statements which appear in the Northern Star, as we have often been deceived and imposed upon by them. 3.. We declare fur pure and in- dependent principle, unmixed with baser matter." 4. We advocate the six points of...

(Extract from a Letter, dated London, 28th December, 1844.) [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 31 May 1845

(Extract from a Letter, dated Lon- don, 28th December, 1844.) (From the Port Phillip Patriot.) "The alteration which we have to   note in the value of your produce, in our market since our last report, are a decline in the prices of sperm oil, which are quoted now at £86 to 88 per ton, whilst southern has advanced 10s per ton, being now £33 10s for oil of first quality; whalebone, in the absence of supplies, has got up to £270 per ton; bark has also im= proved in value, a sale was recently made of a small quantity at £9 7s 6d per ton, an importation to any extent would soon drive the price down, there being a very large stock in the hands of the consumers. Tallow, owing to the heavy arrivals from St Petersburg, has given way in price, and the best Australian samples are 41s to 41s. 6d per cwt. In wool the market is decidedly firmer than it was at the conclusion of the last sales, and we trust to see a little improve- ment at the next sales, to be held about the end of J...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 31 May 1845

SYDNEY. THE " WORTHY" ALDERMAN:— We have seen a private letter from a gentle- man who, in newspaper matters, knows "what's what," received by the Sham-   rock, and dated 2nd May, stating that "Kerr cannot accomplish what he ex- pected, and intends returning. He has been very quiet here."—Port Phillip He- rald. Our southern friend has been greatly imposed upon. The worthy al- derman "quiet" in Sydney!—that is     rather good. Can a man be said to be quiet, who, in something more than a month, has been twice taken up for dancing the highland fling in the streets,   with a kilt on so alarmingly short, that it was scarcely delicate; who turned off the gas at church, who offered to   the whole barrack guard (a sergeant and sixteen men) for not allowing him to walk on the grass, who ''took a sight"   at a constable on duty, who displays his agility by climbing up the lamp-posts and sitting on the little bit of i...

MELBOURNE. INSOLVENT COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 31 May 1845

MELBOURNE. INSOLVENT COURT. —We learn   with much pleasure, that Mr Verner has been re-appointed Chief Com- missioner of the Insolvent Court, in the room of Mr Pohlman, resigned. We understand that the reason of Mr Verner's sudden re-appointment to the office he so recently resigned, has originated from the confirmation of his original appointment to that office by the Home Government. Of course Mr Verner abandons all idea of visiting Europe, as originally con- templated, and to do which he re- signed the office he is about to re- sume—Gazette.   THE TREASURY.—Communications have arrived from Sydney, respecting the removal of Mr M' Vitie from his   situation as Chief Clerk of the Trea- sury, and the appointment of his successor, requiring a statement of all the facts attendant thereupon. It is well known that while Mr M'Vitie held the appointment, he was under security to the Government for about four thousand pounds, whereas his successor has ...

SUPREME COURT.—(IN BANCO.) TUESDAY, MAY 27. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 31 May 1845

SUPREME COURT.—(IN BANCO.) TUESDAY, MAY 27. Cropper versus Cropper and Chapman. —Mr Sidney Stephen, moved under the 43rd rule or court, and read an affidavit of Mr Harvey, which deposed that the defendant was at present in Britain. Granted, returnable on the 10th day of June next. Doe demise M'Lachlan v. Roe.—Mr Stawell moved for judgment as against the casual ejector. Application granted. Atkinson, assignee of James M'Arthur. v. Bank of Australasia.—An application   had been made in this cause for a new trial or a non-suit. His Honor decided that as the Bank had obtained judg- ment, and the process had been quite regular, the Bank by acting under it was not liable to an action for trespass, and in consequence a noun-suit should be en- tered. Walsh v. Sullivan—In this case an ap- plication had been made for a non-suit or a new trial. His Honor decided upon granting a new trial upon this ground, which was, that the verdict in the case was in contradiction to the Judge wh...

INSOLVENT COURT. WEDNESDAY, MAY 28, 1845. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 31 May 1845

INSOLVENT COURT. WEDNESDAY, MAY 28, 1845. Application for certificate granted— Thomas Scott. Application for certificates refused. —Henry Farrell, not granted, one of the advertisements not having, in ac- cordance with the act, given one calendar month's notice. Henry George Ashurst. The official assignee, Mr. James Graham, being sworn deposed, I have not signed the usual recommen- dation to the court to grant a certifi- cate to the insolvent, for the following reasons:—That having been advised   that certain properties which the insol- vent had transferred to other parties, belonged to the estate, and as far as the examinations taken before the Chief Commissioner have gone, I have been led to believe that the insolvent has not complied with all the requirements and conditions of the act, and that instruc- tions have been given to the attorney of the estate to commence proceedings for the recovery of that property ; I am therefore of opinion, from these examinations, th...

THE ENGLISH SIDE OF THE SQUATTING QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 31 May 1845

THE ENGLISH SIDE OF THE SQUAT- TING QUESTION. (From the Sydney Atlas.) IT is the fashion to argue the Squatting question as if it were purely and ex- clusively a colonial one: as if, in vin- dicating the rights of her Australian subjects, Great Britain was doing some thing for them, and nothing for herself —as if, in fact, our appeal were en- tirely to the generosity, and not at all to the interested feelings of our remote and negligent parent. No opinion can be less correct, however; and, deeply as the Squatting question inter- ests this colony, to those who are able to look a little beyond the circumstances of the present moment, there is no doubt that it as deeply interests Great Britain. The effect of the Squatting Regulations is to render the producing of wool more expensive. Those who have taken the least unfavourable view of the results of this measure, repre- sent it as equivalent to a tax of one farthing per pound on wool, while others, equalled entitled to respect, reckon ...

TIME. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 31 May 1845

TIME.   O Time! stern, silent monitor, thou art Corrector of the evils we endure, The sweet physician to the wounded heart, The calmer of our woes and sovereign cure, Adorner, beautifier, and undoer Of all thy works—embalmer of the dead, Who buryeth in oblivion the poor— Kings, priests, and nobles, in one common bed, And treadeth nations down 'neath thy all conquering head, PRIAUX.

FEDERALISM IN SCOTLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

FEDERALISM iN SCOTLAIND. A curio ,s and interesting pamplet from the pen of a " Scotchman" has reached us. The title of. the brochure tells its object-" Sciotlaud interested in the question of Federal or Local Parlia ments." The writer sets out by abusing O Conhell, yet hie admits the deep root,the question of Repeal has taken in Ireland, as well among the middle and upper classes as among the less wealthy. - He does not, however, waste hlii tifie or his ink with olher people's business, and leaving Irishmen to mind their own affairs, he proceeds to show that Scotland, though possessing much wealth, and industry, and commerce, and:trade, owes none of these things to her union with .England, and argues that..undera: national parliament Scot land would. have advanced much more ra'pidly thamaise did u nder the foreign, and that she would now demand a la c li'sei natiorial legislature as the surest neans of,increasing:her prosperity.

THE IMMIGRATION SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

Men Who know their rights And, knowing, dare maintain." THE IMMIGRATION SOCIETY. THE Squatters of the Geelong Dis- trict have distinguished themselves above all others by their well-direc- ted and well sustained efforts to procure a regular supply of shepherds and agricultural labourers from the neighbouring colonies. Hitherto their proceedings must be considered as merely experimental, but so successful, that it has been deemed advisable to give a greater degree of regularity and permanency to their efforts, by the organization of a society for the express purpose of promoting and regulating the supply of labour according to the wants of the district and the rate of wages. The advantages which may be expected to result from this step, (especially if followed up in other districts) will be the equalisa- tion of the rates of wages through- out Port Phillip, Van Diemen's Land, and the other neighbouring colonies; so as not only to benefit the employers of labour, but, viewing the subj...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

HIS Excellency the Governor, from his repeated prorogation of the Council, appears to be of opinion that the next despatches from England will contain some- thing very momentous indeed. In the meantime both he and his op- ponents appear to be "all abroad" in their surmises as to what the present silence portends. Should the despatch be favourable to his Excellency on the squatting ques- tion, he will no doubt rouse himself from his lethargy, and make ample amends for the time he has lost, by pouring out his accumulated wrath on the heads of the colonists. On the other hand, if the tenor of the   despatch be unfavourable, it is thought that he will abruptly throw up the reigns of government, and cease to take any interest in the affairs of the colony. But the pro- babilities that may be conjured up on the subject, are so numerous and complicated as to bewilder the brains of the most shrewd politician. The Atlas hints that a change in the constitution of the colony is not...

DISTRICT COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

DISTRICT COUNCIL. A meeting of the council was held yesterday afternoon. Present, Mr Austin, (chairman) Mr Sheppard and Mr Lloyd. In consequence of the absence of the Warden, and no information having been received respecting the new appointments to the vacant councillor- ships, it was not deemed advisable to proceed to business. The letter from His Excellency the Governor, in reply to the demand of a guarantee, was read; the sub- stance of which, we have already published, namely, that it was not in his power to give a guarantee ; but expressing his clear conviction that the clause authorising the council to make bye-laws for assessing and levying, fully [empowered them to make regulations for distress and sale in order to effect a levy; adding (somewhat characteristically and sarcastically) that he could easily conceive what a clamour would have been raised, had he introduced a clause for such a purpose!   The meeting then adjourned till Tuesday next.

SPEAKER'S CIRCULAR.

On this. the Atlas remarks:— We presume that the Governor must have made an ample apology to the Speaker of the Legislative Council, for the gross and studied insult put upon him and them last year on a similar occasion; otherwise we cannot suppose that the Speaker would have announced his intention of attending, and invited the Council to hear him company. We would also beg to suggest, that to place the Legislative Council merely on a level with all other public bodies is by no means doing justice to their position here; and that as far as we c...
