ENGLAND. ADVANCE IN THE PRICE OFWOOL. Liverpool, February 5, 1841. SIr,-WE have much pleasure in draw ing your attention to the advance obtained at our late wool sale, which proves the superiority of our market over every other for the sale of that article, as nothing but a very dispro. portionate attendance of buyers to the quantity of wool offered could have lorced prices up to such an extent, SCOTT, HASTINGS, & CO. January 29. We. have had a very full attendance of buyers,at our small sales to-day, and there was a'degree of animation in the biddirigs which'h'as' been foreign to our wool markets for, some time, combing wools. especially, . having experienced an advance of from 1d to jid per lb., while other kinds of Australian have not realized less than from Id to ld per lb. advance. The' following table will show the relative prices of this and the preceding sales. The Sydney wools, with the ex ception of some lots buiry and seedy, were in superior condition, and obtaine...
NEW SYSTEM OF PENAL DISCIPLINE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 19 June 1841
NEW SYSTEM OF PENAL DISCIPLINE. From the La?nceston Advertiser. The Home Government has not only deprived us of the assignlmen t system, but'to make the matter inftiitely worse and our complaints infinitely more just, they have ordered that for the future none of the convicts who may arrive here, or have arrived during the last twelve months, shall be employed in the settled districts ! The colonists w.ill not'therefore even have thi-'idva' cage of their labour on the public roads A new 'settlement has ale-ady been fixed upon, to which they will be trans ported for a certain period, but for how lonsg nobody seems to know. They will after undergoing their probation receive a ticket of leave, and work on their own account at a fixed rate of wages,-a plan apparently adopted for 'he express purpose of preventing free emigration, and which is is plain to ferefee must be one of its glorious results. What is to be done, or rather what is to be BEGUN at this neW settle. inent has not yet be...
MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 19 June 1841
ZELSBOURNE. No mail has arrived from Melbourne this week. The Seahorse, steamer, has arrived in Melbourne from Sydney ; her arrival was quite' unexpected; and it is not known whether she will continue in that line. SThe Corsair had grounded'on the bar at the mouth.of.the.Yarra. .ln.shipping her cargo of fat cattle, nine were killed while taking them on board, and several died afterwards while she was in the river. It is said that the boilers and engine lately brought from Sydney :for Mr Mlanton's new steamer, were found not at all to ansrer the purpose ; but that the spirited proprietor intended:'to ,:build another vessel, and.-expected -to>= overcome the dilliculty so as' to start two steamers instead of one. The Courier steamer is daily expected from Adelaide. She is for sale. The Military in Melbourne have dis. graced themselves by a Late affair. Two privates were seen rifling the pockets of a drunken man whom they bad kiocke4c down. A gentleman," on seeing this, went totthe b...
STEAM NAVIGATION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 19 June 1841
STEAM NAVIGATION. WE noticed last week, the active ex ertions of the Steam Company to establish another vessel on the Derwent. We wish them every siuccess; for seeing, as'nll 'inmst do, how muich pro sperity to the .general inti.rests.-?,the agriculturists.in particular, has followed the establishment of steam vessels on every.: navigable water in the United States, so excellene an example cannot be too ardently followed. We find by a book on this subject, published,-at New York, by a Mr. Steverison, that on the Hudson fRiver, the passage from AIthany to New York is regnlarly performed at the rate of fifteen miles an hour. The steami.boats which ply between New York and the ports of Providence and Charleston are of stupendous dimensions. Thle Narragansett's keel is 210 feet in length. These sea-steamers afford most ex ?ellerit accomodation, and often contain 400 berths. The cabins are from 169 to 175 feet in length; and it Is not unusual to see nearly 200 people dining together.

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 19 June 1841
VAN DE~ZMEN'S L.AND. A new. era has dawned on Hobart Town. Yesterday (May 22), at two o'clock, the bell of the Sea Horse steamer rang for starting to Sydney, and in half an.hour afterwards, off she went in excellent style, having on board a number of passengers. Coals,-A most splendid sample of coals has been found on the govern rmeit land at Jerusalem. It contains full twenty per cent of bitumen, and is pronounced by Count Streleski, as far superior to. any coal yet analyzed in New South Wales. The coal fields are only eight miles from water carriage, on a dead level, so that a railroad could easily be constructed. The same sample of coal is, also found on Mr. Brant's estate, adjoining. The local guvernment contenplate working the coal found at Jerusalem. Tile chief " lion" to be visited by strangers on arrival at Hobart Town, is; the magnificent mountain covering lhe town from the westward, called Mount Wellington.

CAUSES OF THE PRESENT CRISIS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 19 June 1841
CAUSEs OF THE PRESENT CRISIS. From the Sydney Gazette. Among the causes of the present alarming state of the financial relations of the colony, we would suggest the heedless extravagance of our ratio of imports in proportion to exports. * a Let us take these matters a little in detail. Salt beef! In the name of Heavern we ask, if there is any practical man agement in the colony, why should we import beef? Why, badly as things are managed, the people of Sydney can buy meat of the carcase butcher and salt for themselves, at a consider able reduction on the merchants' invoice, price of European stuff, worth in quality about half as much. Of all things in the world, never was there anything so practically stupid as our importilng.beef I Spirits I -- We believe there are somewhere about. four hundred thou. sand. gallons of spirits in bond; the cost of which alone, indepenrident of the Colonial- duty, must amount to above one hundred thousand pounds. The quantity of wine that is in the co...
SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 19 June 1841
The Blacks on the Clarenre River have been guilty of several mutdeas and other outrages of late. The Jewess has been on the patent slip to have her bottom examined, and it is found that the surmises of Captain Crew were correct, as- to her having some of the copper loose. The chief part of it about the bow was either worn out or hanging so as to impede her way through the water.-Chronicle. While it is most pleasant to the eye to behold the young wheat just budding from its native element, as it is now showing itself above- the surface about Mauitland, it is a most melancholy fact that the farmers can scarcely receive any price for their grain.-Chronicle. The new military barracks at New castle are fast progressing. So great is the stagnation of affairs that many-of the late immigrants fii;d a difficulty in procuring empiloyment. The Queen's birthday was celebrated with, great spirit in eydney, but the particulais would be uninteresting Ito our readers. The gas company com. minenced ...
MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 19 June 1841
ItZLSCCLL ANZA, .A person who frequently reads of something or othr'~being iinmoveable;' and who has also heard of things being' irresistible, would ask, what wouldb he the consequence were an irresistible body to come in contact with an- im movable body? Mr. B, did you say, or did you not say, what I said you said ; because C. said you said, you never did say What I said you said you said ? Now, if you did say that you did not say what I said you said, then what did you say ? Hard Times Conjugated.-A country schoolmaster thus describes a money. lender :--He serves you in the present tense-he lends you in the conditional mood-keeps you in the subjunctive and ruins you in the luture. A HINT TO WivEs.-' If I am not home from the party to-night at ten o'clock,' said a husband to his better and bigger half, 'don't 'wait for me.' ' That I won't,' said the lady significantly, ' I won't WAIT, but'I'll coME for you.' ,He returned at ten. precisely. PERSIAN WIT. - Many owners of gardens near...
WEST INDIES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 19 June 1841
WEST INDIES. As we believe that this paper is the o,nly one in Australia which pos.; sesses the advantage of receiving regula;r files of newspapers froinl the British possessions in the West indies,and Southi America; and as we conceive it to be the highest aim of a public journalist to bring to gether the .mniost remote corners of .he globe,.so as.tob orward the cause .of philsnthropy: by attempting to unite the scattered tribes of man kind in a bond of interest, if not of brotherly love-no apology need be given for devoting an occasional column to the affairs of so important a division of the.colonial empire of Great Britain as her possessions in the first discovered portioi. of the new world. Although hitherto there has been no direct commercial intercourse between the Australian colonies and the West Indies, it is very probable that in a few years the trade will become considerable, especially as the most direct and pleasant route between England and Australia will be across the...

FRENCH COLONY OF ALGERIA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 19 June 1841
FRENCU COLONY OF ALGERIA. (Fron, the Morning Chronicle, Feb. 10.) Ws have'adverted on former occasions to tie enorinous waste of'life by which the. uenyiable.tenure of these sterile possessions has heen maintained.. The European struggles in vain .against the chances of an inglorious desert warfare, ai.d "the certainty of that fierce pestilence which thins the ranks of the army. T''he war has assumed the permanent character of a struggle for extermination; the FIrench soldier has caught.much of the.wild and.deeperate. courage of his enemies, while the Arab has attaiiied to sutoe of the' military arts of' the invader; 'but this mutual' influence is solely for the purposes of destruction, and it is admitted that the French have no longer any hope .of availing themselves of the Arabs for. the purposes of colonization, or of allaying the profound antipathy which" separates the two iraces. Yet .colonization iis the one thin g needful.. A civilized country may con-. tinue to export: men a...
ZOOLOGY OF AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 19 June 1841
ZOOLOGY OF AUSTRALIA. (From the Journal of the Relies Lettres.) SoMt extraordinary nrovelties were lately exh:biied at a scien tific meeting of the Zoological Society by Mr Gould, the well.knrownr ornithologist, .who has. just.retnr.ned =front Australia; whither he proceeded," about'"two years since, for the purpose of 'collecting the re. quisite information for his forthcoming work on that interesting country. His s?ccess has far exceeded his expecta tions, and he" has brouglit with him the linest .collectioni.of, quadrupeds, birds, their nests, eggs, &c., thiat has ever been imported into-this country.. \Mr Gould has also made a very fine series of drawirgs, and obtained a vast fund of inrormation connected with the obiects of his research. 1'lIhe subjects e: ibited by Mr Gould were a new: and very singular species of lizards .

THE HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 19 June 1841
THE .HORSE. Hints to Horse Buyers.-Never buy a horse that hits his legs, or to speak plainly, cuts or brushes. Never buy one with a long, weak, deer neck. Always suspect vice when you see the white of the eyc, or observe the animal look back at you when mounted. Be careful that the fore feet are of the same size;' avoid flat feet and con sequetit low heels. If you wish to be firmly earried choose a well formed head, big nostril, short neck, deep in the ribs, short in the cannon, or below the knee, big well formed ankles (al ways rejecting upright ones), width of loin, big thighs, and well formed hocks. As to go fast you must have length, choose a long waist rather than high limbs; Eclipse's form before Uhilders'. Never purchase a horse with out standing behind him when trotted up and down the yard ; you will then be able to see if he does not cross his legs,-and goes straigh'taad true. Avoid a horse if you see him shift his feet in the stable, be they equal or not iin size; feverish...
AUSTRALIAN BANKING. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 19 June 1841
AUSTRALIAN BANKING. THRREcannot be a more convincing proof of the benefits of asound system of colonial banking than that which we have now presented in the" official' returns bf five banks in Sydney,'New South W'ales, where, half a century ago, the kangaroo and the savage had entire possesshion of tlie soil, which produiced no food or 'r;iment for the support of man, and where now agri culture,: civilization, commerce, and wealth, are advancing °with extra ordinavy rapidity. The 'alue of the maritime trade of the British colonies in the southern hemisphere is nearly £5,000,900 ster ling per annum, and the exports of wool 10,000,000 lbs. yearly. The property annually created is about £6,000,000 sterling, and the moveable and ininimoveable property is estimated at £50,000,000 sterling. That this is not the result of a wild specuialive system,'is shown oy the sound condition of the banks. By the returns of the assets and liabilities, it will be seen that the deposits in those five ban...
