The Sydney Overland Mail brings us no intelligence of later .date than we received by the Sham rock, and there being still obe over. land mail due, we have not issued our extra sheet to-day, but have re served it in expectation of a greater press of intelligence on Wednesday next. The principal topic in the po 11 teal and commeroial world, is the new tariff bill, which reduces the splrlt dities or.e-half, and doubles flie dulles on flour, tea, coffee, and sugar. The evil of illicit distilla 'tlon is admitted on all hands to be Injurious alike :o the morals and the revenue of the colony. But the re Ouctlon In the price of intoxicating drinks, whlch will be the immediate consequence of a reduction of dutyy will, in a moral point of view, ren der the cure worse than the disease and, if to this evil. be superadded an increase in the price of tea and cof fee, and the consequent substitution of spit its as a beverage, and the in ducement to the adulteration of coffee, the proposed scheme ...

James Gavigan, Joseph Rice, and Geotge Farrell were jointly indicted for a burglary in the dwelling house of Robert White, at Melbourne on the 7th September. ~i The Crown Prosecutor said, that during the last six weeks the Iowi had been infested with a gang of burglarious robbers, three of whom were the pris oners, who had been committing whole sale robberies; and no wonder need be excited, at the ease with which they were enabled. to perpetrate them, when they looked at those keys (hold. ing up two large bundles of keys.) The prisoners were found guilty; G2orge Rowe,of Geelong. Ironmonger, Henry Dewing, and Jonu M'Carthy, alias Drummond, alias M'Arthur, were jointly indicted under the 25th sec., O?b Get.

THE NOMINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 20 September 1845
THE NOMINATION. Yesterday was the day fixed for the .omination of candidates for the seat in the Legislative Council vacant by he resignation of Mr B. Boyd, but no ntelligence of the result has yet eached Geelong. It was generally upposed that Mr Curr would walk the ourse, as the only enemy he had to ear was Mr Fawkner. Our prognos. icantions on this head are likely to be verified in a manner we did not at first dream of. We expected that Mr Fawknerwould come forward with some "andidate to oppose Mr Gurr, but little magined that he would be the candi. date him'elf. Such, however, we believe will be the case; a belief in which we are strengthened by his announcement that he will attend the nomination as a spectator-that is to say, he will stand by, and hear himself proposed, secouded, and no doubt elected by a triumphant show of hands. Whether he will stand ins so triumphant a position at the poll, we will not ven. ture to prophecy. Notwithstanding our persodnal friend ship for Mr Fa...

THE GLASGOW ASSOCIATION [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 20 September 1845
THE GLASGOW ASSOCIATION. The formation, in' the provincial towns of Great Britain; of societies forr thl purpo'se of advocating 'the rights of the squatters of New South Wales, is one of those " great facts" whviich. characterise ,the rapid exten iaion of the cause of justice and right priiciples in the present age. This. great fact we accept as an omen of good to the colony ;---as a guarantee that the reign of colonial-office tyranny will soon be at. an end that the gross ignorance of our po sition and wants, so long'prevalent, will. be. dissipated ; and as a proof that it we are true to ourselves, we shall not cry in vain for the as. sist'andeof the friends of fair play and good . government in the re motest parts of the earth.

MASTERS' AND SERVANTS' ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 1 October 1845
MASTERS'.. AND SERVANTS' ACT. THE Bill for amending the Masters' ,and Servants' Act, is, undoubtedly, the most important of the measures bow before the Legislative Council; .not-even excepting the Tariff Bill We, therefore, give below a care fully tcompiled Abstract of the Bill, from which its nature and mode of "operation can be fairly appreciated. 'The grand feature in which'it differs "'rom? the Act now in force, is the provision which it makes for the prevention of" bolting," by intro .ducing similar regulations to those which are applicable to Merchant S-eamen, namely, the adoption of a system of requiring the use of certificates 4f discharge, without which no servant who had ab sconded, could legally .be em ployed in any manner, by any one, ?without incurring the penalties at tendant on a breach of the law. The prevalence of " bolting," with all its concomitant evils of creating discontent, and encouraging a wan ~ering restless disposi ion in the labouring :population, is cert...

IRISH HOUNDS AND THE MEN WHO RIDE TO THEM. THE DHUHALLOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 1 October 1845
LRISH HOUNDS AND THE MEN WHO S 'RIDE TO THEM. DY VENATORt. THE DHUHALLOWS. fiHaving been for many years in the hai[ of reading all the sporting works tisat emanate from the London press, the fact has often struck me as being strange, that I have never seen in any of theme detailed account of the stata iof sport in the sister kingdom. That 'hise has arisien not from lack of matter, 4r'from the uninteresting nature of the subject, but from an apathetic indif ference on the part of the Irish sports. t.en, In not giving an account of them selves or their doings, is, I think, s indisputable; therefore, as one who has enjoyed many a glorious run in that country, I shall endeavour to rescue them from the oblivion in which they rest at present, and show them t""th as faithfully and truly as I am able. That the Irish, taken as a nation, are passionately addicted to hunting, any person who has seen the peasant take his horse from the plough and follow the hounds as far as he could, will, read...

PRICE OF TOWN ALLOTMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 1 October 1845
PRICE ToWN ALLOTMENTS. It is not g nerally understood that the upset pice of Town Allottments in the town If Geelong is higher than in any other oicn in the whole colony (excluding, )f course, the city of Sydney). S ch is the fact, however. In Melbourne, the upset price of a town allotme t is £142 10s., in Gee long £150. There is the same& frontage in each case; but in Gee long the allotments. are 1G feet 6 inches lon er; so that the pur chaser here nust pay for 16 feet of depth, which is almost valueless, at the same pro odrtion that he pays for the frontage This has been the case for the ast five years: and yet with the full knowledge (thus ihdi cated) of th importance of the lo cality, his E cellency the Governor has "set Ilis ce like a flint" against any measure 'kely to promote our prosperity. MI were ripe enough five years ago to\have extracted from us £300 an acr for our landt; we were then taunt d for four years Itith the pifomrie of a Custom I-louse and now ince we ...
NEW PENAL SETTLEMENT [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 1 October 1845
NEW PENAL SETTLEMENT. From the Spect.ator. Penal colonies in which convicts are subject to coercion having proved a failure, Lord Stanley proposes 4o try the experiment of a colony in which the convicts shall go at large, and be indeed the only deriizens. Its site is to be the north-west coast of Australia: thither are to be re moved all the surplus felonry of Van Diemen's Land, who having con ducted themselves with tolerable pro priety, will accept of a pardon on condition of removing to the new settlement; 4 thither are to be re moved English, delinquents, who, to escape a worse fate will voluntarily banish themselves to this Stanley" Utopia; and, least the generation of thieves should become extinct, the parishes to which these modern anti types of the founders of Rome have belonged, are to be invited and en couraged to send out their families to them..
