ENGLAND. PRINCE ALBERT AND TIH DuKE OF RIoTHsAV.-It miay not be generally known that the Prince ofiWales is Duke of i{othsay, as well as Duke of Corn wall, and it wo'jld appear from the fol lowing incident which has recently oc curred that the fact was unknown to his royal father. One morning a card was presented at Buckingham Palace to Prince Albert, upon which was en graved "The Duke of Ilothssy,"and ari audience solicited. Ilia ioyal High. ness seemed pusz'ed, aid repeated the name several times, saying he did not recollect'ever having heard of such a robleman, but he consented to give the ri quired audience, and ordered the u)uke of Rothsay to he shown in, when he was agreeably surprised by the en trance of the heir apparent, attired in full Highland costume, itrenrtled by Her Majesty's piper.

CAPTURE OF "JACKEY JACK EY." [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 13 September 1845

CAPTURE OF "JACKEY JACK EY.' This daring man, whose escape a.few weeks ago with two other prisoners from the Glenorchy road party, and their taking to the bush, created so much alarm to the settlers, and put strong bodies of armed police in mo tion, is happily once more safe ini cus tody. Several versions of the cir cinmstances utinder which his capture was effected have been propagated, but the following may be relied upon as correct : Having (as we stated in a recent number of the Advertiser) separated, owing to a quarrel,. or some other cause from his companions, he com. mitted several robberies alone. From the Broad Marsh he made his way for the Oatlands district, living on plhinader as he proceeded or, his journey. For several days, so cautious and well concerted were his movements-hiding in the thick scrub, amidst weary sol tude by day, and travelhling over an a'most impassible country by night that the police had lost all immediate trace of him. Early on the morning of Thursd...

MELBOURNE.

No clue to the offenders could be discovered ; the con stables went to work, and by some fxeriions succeedad in laying a train which has at last reached the haunts of crime; tile consequence of which was the apprebension on Friday morning of teli parties, in whose possession certain portions of the sto'ernproperty were discovered. At the suggestion of the Chief Constable, a private investi. gation was held at the Mayor's Court, on Saturday. It lasted from eleven in the morning to seven in the evening.

WASHING SHEEP IN THE SEA. To the Editor of the Port Phillip Herald. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 13 September 1845

WASHING SHEEP IN THE SEA. To the Editor of the Port Phdtlip Herald. SIR,-1 communicate the following in formation because I believe it will be found useful on several stations in the Port Phillip District. Wlfen I resided in Van Diemen's Land some years since, I had several flocks of. sheep on tlte sea coast, and the water in the usual washing place, very abundant, chancing entirely to fail, after trying a few experiments I determined to wash them in the sea. The labor was not a third of. that which I usually bestowed on fresh water washing; the dirt and grease came out with singular facility, and swimming, with-very little hand.wash. ing, lelt the wool as clean and as white as I ever saw it. I apprehended that the salt which might be left in the wool would cause a dampness in it in hot weather, but though good opportunities occurred of testing this, no such result took place, and I thought if there were any per ceptible difference, it was in the wool handling softer than when washe...

WANT OF LABOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 13 September 1845

WANT OF LABOUR. Frmrnthe 8ý dey Herald. SFrom all parts of the colony we have for, some weeks past been . receiving complaints of ,hle want of labour, which is gradually increasing, and will have arrived at .a m ,st inconvenient point wiihin a few weeks, as the Lambing season will cotmmence immediately, and shearing in less than a month What is to be done to supply this want? .We should say, in the first place, a series of petitions from all the districts should be sent to England, praying Her Majesty and both Houses of Parliament to assist in the revival of emigratson to this colony. But it may be said, this course will certainly .not have an immediate effect, and perhaps have no effect at all. Lt may be so, but still it is a proper and constitutional course, and should be adopted ; and if the Parliament do not eccede to the prayer of the petitions, the' mere presentation of them, and the discussinis'that would arise upon them, would be beneficial.
