No Title [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 6 September 1845
The arrival of the David, without the expected reinforcement of emi- &nbsp; grants, has created some degree of dissatisfaction towards the Committee of the Immigration Society. Giving the members of that body full credit for good intentions, we must say that the present was not the time for de- bating the point with shipmasters about the difference between 18s and 20s for passage-money ; as the saving of the 2s (even if secured) is made at an ex- pense of £5 per man to settlers em- ploying servants, wages having risen that amount. It seems that when the &nbsp; David sailed from Geelong, the master was left at liberty to accept the 18s or not, as he pleased ; and there were, up to the vessel's arrival, many who fully expected the men would be brought. Whatever steps are now &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; taken must be of a certain nature, for another miscarriage will do more harm to the settlers than all forme...

NEW ZEALAND-,BAY OF ISLANDSa TIEBritis.h Sovereign, which left the Bay on the 6th instant, being nineteen days lates from that disturbed settle ment than the date of the Velocity's departure therefrom, brings no further accounts telative to the movements be. tween the nsTives and our tioops. The latter were encamip ed at Waimate. Golonel )Despard and Lieutenant Hulmo had proceeded to Auckland in the Government brig Victoria-it was supposed to confet with his Excellency upon the best mode of prosecuting the war, or whether they should act merely on the defebtsive, in case of any attack on the patt of the natives, until an ad dition to thaeir troops could behad from Sydney, fo r the conveyance of which the British Sovereign has arrived it our harbour. The North Star, H.M.S., from Sydney, arrived at the Bay on t?e 31st July, and relieved H.M.S.

SCAB IN SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 10 September 1845
SC`AB IN SHEEP, It Is now Virtually in the power of the settlers themselves to put a final stop to the ravages of this dis case, for there can be no doubt that ,the Legislative Council will be al most altogether guided by such recommendations as the settlers may offer. It will, therefore, be un pardonable carelessness in any squatter to neglect availing himself of the opportunity of expressing his opinion afforded him by the Committee of the Legislative Coun cil; The replies to the Circular letter forwarded to each of the sub scribers of the Geelong Petition, should be forwarded as quickly as possible, in order that whatever measure is determined upon may be passed into a law before the end of the present session. The change for the better which has taken place in the cleanness of the sheep depastured in this district, ,hould not make the settlers indir ferent to the subject, for any relaxa tion of the rigor with which the disease is proscribed, will be fol lowed by a corresponding ...

HOBART TOWN. RICHIIAdnsoN v. ARMYTAGE.-This morning, in the Suprem9 Court, an application was made by the Solicitor General, on the part of Mr Armytage, for an order to stay all proceedings in the fresh action comm?enced by Mrs Richardson, as the period for pleading to this action expired to-morrow. Their Honors refused the application in its present form, but, as the defend ant may plead before a judge in chamin. bers, Mr Justice Montagu suggested that courses which would, in effect, abate the new action. And thus stands this case at present,
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 10 September 1845
In the absence of other exciting topics, the present position of the District Council is deserving of at tention. The same air of mystery :'which has hung over the intentions of the government since the charters were first issued, still exists,-and until some open manifestation of its ntended policy is candidly made, it a': unavailing to look for anything like a satisfactory result, either in the proper working of the councils, or in lthe refusal of their members to com nienefperations. In either case, a painifil feeling of dissatisfaction and -uncertainty prevails ;.so much so, that ,we are convinced, if the government wero boldly to declare its deter mination to carry out the District Caouncil System, the public mind would be less disquieted than it is at present. ;We have always advocated the principles upon which the District Council System is founded ;-and if those of a different way of thinking endeavour to shake our faith in the system by pointing out the errors of our own lo...

'~T~i ENGLTSH CHURCH. -- This ltracturo is progressing towards ceoni pletion, with a regularity which is rarely observed in the erection of similar buildings.

The drgan designed'for the t uirch has arrived by. the Arab ?and we shall. probably be enabled in an early number to give some particulars of its dimensions and compass. ii was eppected by many that the cler gyman would have arrived by the same vessel; but this was mere con jecture, no intimation to that effect having been previously received.

THE REGISTRAR .GENERAL AND THE LEG1SLATIVE COUNCIL. From the Sidney Examiner. The whole gist ofthe question lies in the djiputedpoint, as to whether Mr Carter's salary-is, or is not, charge able on .Schedule A And as sonme doubts exist;.thereupon, in the minds of, varipuo honorable members on both sides of the ilouse, we will for once call. in Lord Stanley as umpire-an au thority to which Sir .George 'Gipps usually professes implicit obedience. In. his Lordship's,:Despatch of the 15,th of December, 1842, he eayas-'To the office of PRegistrar. of Deeds I have already authorised you to appoint Mr Carter, if that Gentle'ian should be willing to accept the employment-the salary not to exceed that which I pro pose to assign to the Prothonotar., that is £650 per annum.

MR. MACAULEY'S SPEECH ON THE INTERNAL SLAVE TRADE OF THE UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 10 September 1845
MR. MACAULBY's .~pgEIi- ON THUI INTERNAL SLAVE TRADE OF THE UNITED STATES: I say' if there b3 on the face of the earth a society which before God or man is more accountable than another for the miser~ of the A frican race, it is that v~r± trehublicof the United States, to whose produce Sir Robert .leel proposes to give free admission into thiscountry. I can. assure the House that I feel no pleasure. in going into arguments of this nature.,. I conceive that it is not the duty of mem bers of 'Parliamient here to .discuss abuses whicih exist In the institutions ;f other nations. By. diedissions of thiat nature, indeed, we can scarcely expect to produce any salutary effect with re gard to the reform of such abuses. They are rather calculated to excite national pride and to inflame'nationae animosity. But the right honorable Baronet opposite turns this House into e judicature; where we are to arraign and :riticise ihe conduct of all nations under_ heaven; before we determ'ine what our sc...
PROGRESS OF CRUELTY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 10 September 1845
PROGRESS OF CRUELTY. (From the London Examiner.) &nbsp; It will be remembered that about this time last year the Rev. William Day Rector of Hawridge, in the county of Norfolk, was indicted for having ham- strung a whole flock of sheep. The fact was proved, and the circumstances of cruelty were most detestable, but the prisoner was acquitted by a stupid jury on the ground set up in his defence that he had no malice against the owner of the sheep. The judge, upon the acquittal admonished the reverend gentleman to be more circumspect in future, and to learn, not indeed the first feelings of of humanity, that was not to be hoped, but the first principles of law. Mr Day .is mRaking progress., .;.He has got beyond sheep and animals. ati'd turns his hand and knife against. man.
