A TORNADO. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 29 May 1841
A TORNADO. &nbsp; The following graphic account of the Natchez Tornado is one of the first articles written by the late Timothy Flint, who was himself buried for a time beneath the ruins of one of the buildings : — "The morning preceding the storm had been excessively sultry. The sky was overcast rather, as it appeared, with a dusty haze, than thick clouds; and the sky from nine to one was a continual rumble of a hundred low thunders all melting into each other, and no rain fell. " At half after one, there sat at the table, I suppose, fifty guests. The thunder had within a few minutes be- come severe, and the darkness so great as to require candles. But these cir- cumstances in that climate are not apt to create alarm. I finished a hasty dinner, went through a reading room and a beautiful bar room to the front door looking up the street—for it was Natchez under the hill. " I saw a terrific-looking black cloud, as though a well-defined belt of black broadcloth, seeming a mile...

FORESTS OF THE MIDDLE DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 5 June 1841
.FORESTS OF TIE MIIDDLE DIS TRICT. . The forests of Australia are of boundless extent, and as far as can yet be ascertained, coverthe'gredter por tion of the surface of New Holland. 'These immense wildernesses of timber are principally of Eucalyptus species, interspersed with belts or clumps of acacia discolor-green wattle, from which exudes a gum similar to gum arabic; various kinds of native oak, pine, ash, honeysuckle, cedar, stringy bark, iron bark, cherry, sassafras, the stately cabbage tree, and many hundred others, tedious to name in this short sketch. The blue gum is used by the colonists in building their vessels, it is accounted equal in durability to the best English oak. The greatest vari ety of trees, shrubs, and flowers, are found on the sea coast. The cabbage tree is one ofthe most beautiful I have seen, and grows to an enormous height, sometimes to 70 or 100 feet, without a branch and perfectly straight, the branches clustering together at the top, giving it a most i...
MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 5 June 1841
MSCELLrANEA, The Morning Chronicle, speaking of the explosion which took place at the seige of Acre, says :-" Two thousand souls were shattered into twenty thousand atoms in one instant." Ten atoms therefore are equal to one soul. Mlendicant IVit.--" Yon had better a'k for manners than money," said a finely dressed gentleman to a beggar boy, who asked him for alms. " I asked for what I thought you had the most of, was the reply of the little mendi cant. The last case of absence of mind, is that of a gentleman, who, in seeking torwind up his watch, wound up him. self;, and never found out his mistake till his creditors objected to let him go on tick any longer. " An Irishism.-Some Irishmen' in Liverpool, who have called a meeting for a repeal of the union, give the lie to their own desires by heading their placards with the motto-Union is strength.

CORRESPONDENCE. LETTERS OF PUBLICOLA. NO. II. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 5 June 1841
C®OaESPoNDWNCi. LETTERS OF PUBLICOLA. NO. II. SIR,-Circumstances of an imperative nature precluded me from addressing you last week, for which I must now apologise to you. Since my first letter appeared, I have been given to understand that my queries relative to the Melbourne banks may be answered in the afirmative; that is to say, that the banks can pay twenty shillings in the pound, and still have a large surplus. I am glad to hear it indeed; and, as my informa tion came from a most intelligent com mercial source, I have every reason to believe in its truth. But here the very obvious question arises,-viz., why do not these monied companies advance in the way of discounts-to those who. are known to be substantial men ? Instead of this being done, (I do not say it is not done in soms instances,) highly responsible parties a're left to hawk goodbills about the town as so much waste paper. This state of things does not iudicate well filled coffers; but if they are well filled, why-ag...
CHINA. BATTLE OF THE BOGUE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 5 June 1841
CHINB. BATTLE OF THE BOGUE. (Abridged from the Adelaide Chronicle.) AFTER several conferences between the Chinese commissioner and the British plenipotentiary, and an exchange of the forts formerly captured, for the posses sion of ilongkong, a treaty was agreed upon, subject to the approbation of the Emperor. On the 15th February, Captain Elliot returned from his second visit to Keshen. The Nemesis was on the 16th February despatched to the' Bogue, with des. patches for Keshen, which, it was said contained the treaty ready drawn up for the imperial commissioner's sig nature, and the steamer had orders to wait at the Bogue till Thursday night. Meanwhile the accounts received from Canton seemed to show that the Chinese were by no means earnest in their pro fessions. The accounts from Canton received during the week were to the effect that Lin,on the 21t of the month, again took the seals of office as governor of Cantor Province; that Keshen retains the office only of imperial commissi...

PREVENTION OF SCAB IN SHEEP. EXTERMINATION OF THE WILD DOG. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 5 June 1841
PREVENTION OF SCAB IN SHFEP. EXTERMINATION OF THE WILD DOG. 'The rapid extension of that trouble. some disease, the scab, ought to alarm the fears of our settlers, and cause them to bestir themselves, in order to adopt some efficient means for.the prevention of its increasing ravages. All the medicines in the world will not exterminate the dis ease, so long as its exciting causes continue to act. The loss and inconvenience caused by the prevalence of this disease, are very great indeed. The wool is de teriorated in quality and diminished in quantity; the flesh is rendered unfit for food ; the increase is less ened ; the crossing of breeds in many cases prevented; an immense quantity of labour is lost in extra attendance and dressing; expenses are greatly increased ; and last, and worst of all, a spirit of enmity and a want of neighbourly feeling is en gendered between the proprietors of adjoining runs; the unfortnnate possessor of scabby flocks seeks for a remedy in their removal to...
NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 5 June 1841
NEW ZEALAND. We have received a file of the New Zealand Gazette up to the 1st of June. They are full of interesting matter, but we received them at too late an hour for laying a summary of their contents before our readers in this publication. The colony was steadily, progressing, and it was rurmoured that coal had been discovered in the vicinity of Port Nicholson. We have to apologize to the editor of the New Zealand Gazette, for an error which we have committed in ne. glecting to forward the Geelong Ad ve tiser for several weeks past. The mistake arose from confounding the Gazette with the paper which was recently put a stop to at the Bay of Islands. Regularity will in future be ensured. Copious extracts in our next.
