MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 5 June 1841
1? ELBOURNE. Wut.'r.--A first.rate sample of wheat was shown to us the other day; grown on the estate of Dr. M'Crae, at Dande long. It would weigh sixty-two pounds per bushel, and Iorn cleanness, plump ness,.and product of farina, would bear comparison with wheat grown in any quarter of the globe. This sample, we conceive, if anything could, would dis abuse the minds of the Vandemonians of the impression which may have been made by the erroneous assertions of the Review, relative to this province being unadapted to the growth of wheat. - Herald. Murders by the blacks are getting more and more frequent. The Gazette -trIes that the bodies of Mr Morton and rias seVIt had bPen found near Must ham. dreadfully mangled by the spears of the aborigines, and by the ravenous birds of prey.

NATURAL HISTORY. GOULD'S BIRDS OF AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 5 June 1841
NATURAL. HISTORY. &nbsp; GOULD'S BIRDS OF AUSTRALIA. The return of Mr Gould, the ornitho logist, from his exploration of the Australasian continent, is scarcely known to the scientific world, before the first fruits of his labours are pre sented to the public, in the shape of Part l. of his splendid work on the Birds of Australia. Before his depar ture he had acquired a high reputation as a naturalist; but in thus investigat- ing an extensive, interesting, and almost unknown field, Mr. Gould has greatly raised his claims to scientific distinction; and the circumstance of his having undertaken this enterprise at his sole charge, entitles him to every en &nbsp; couragement in the completion of this costly and valuable addition to natural science. The birds of Australia appear to be no less peculiar in their charac. teristics than the animals and the vegetation; and of the seventeen plates forming the fasclculus, several specimens are entirely new, and others have been ...
CORNER INLET VERSUS PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 5 June 1841
CORNER INLET VERSUS PORT PHILLIP. (From the Hobart Town Advertiser.) THE contents of the Port Phillip jour- nals are uninteresting, except as to the feeling respecting the newly dis- covered country of Gipps Land. The mania has commenced for the new El Dorado. Hurrah for Corner Inlet &nbsp; Paradise, and the special survey sys- tem, is now the cry. Several vessels were laid on at Melbourne for Corner Inlet, and al- though it is but a few hours' sail, the charge for a cabin passage is £10. It is said that the new go-ahead principle, for this country, will very materially affect the value of property at Port Phillip. Persons possessing stock and runs within a few miles of Melbourne and Geelong, are actually removing to Gipps Land. [We can assure our somewhat pre- judiced contemporary that he is mis- taken in the latter statement; we are not aware of a single instance of removal from Geelong to Corner inlet.]

CUSTOMS DEPARTMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 12 June 1841
CUSTOMS DRPARTMENT. There exists an absolute necessity for a complete revision of the "ustois Hegulations at present in force at the Port of Corio. The rules now acted upon are vague, uncertain, and embarrassing. 'I he mercantile interest is seriously in jured, without any corresponding advantage, accruing to the revenue. I he public are dissatisfied. the cus toms officer is embarrassed, and the establishment returns no benegt to the government. •' he Government of this colony works entirely by means. of Ro STRICTIVE measures, and this characteristic is so pervading through. out Its minutest, ramifications, that any remarks against- -the general principle would be unavailing; all that we can hope for is, that stch restrictions may be rendered as free from unnecessary annoyance as possihle. "Admitting, therefore, the necessity for a due administia ti',n ot the laws relating to tha col lection of the.,evenne, we ,fiall now proceed to shew that the present line of policy parsnedI by th...
