THE OREGON QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 15 October 1845

THE OREGON QUESTION. THE Oregon territory extends in length from latitude 42 the Mexican boundary ; to "54. 40 . the Russian, being a distance of about 760 miles: ,and its breadth from the sea to the Rocky Mountairs an average distance of 500 miles. So that its whole con tents are about 360,000 square miles, being more than three times as large as Great Britain anti Ireland put to gether. From the Rocky Mountains eastward for more than 1000 miles the 49th parallel of latitude divides the English possessions from those of the United States. So that the Oregon dlistrict above 419 is contiguous to the English territory, and below 49 to the American. The climate is warmer than that of the eastern coast, but colder than that of corresponding European latitudes, the lower por tion resembling that of England, the higher that of Scotland. South of the Straits of St. Juan de Fuca, in lat. 48. there are no tolerable har hours, the only places of shelter are Port Bulfinch and the Columbia, but...

LORD J. RUSSELL'S RESOLUTIONS : COLONIZATION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 15 October 1845

LORD J. RUSSELL'S RESOLUTIONS COLONIZATION. (From the Colonial Gazette, 31ay 31.) LORD John Russell's resolutions have missed fire. They were a kind of many barrelled Fieschi machine levelled a gainst ministers, but instead of a roar ing report, there has been only a ' pluf in the pan.' How-could it be other wise ? They were moved the day be fore that set apart for the celebration of the Queen's birthday; the debate was of course interrupted, and it was resumed on the " Derby day." The debaters never got thoroughly warmed. The House was very nearly counted out on WVedlnesdey evening. Two hundred and eighty-six members voted at the division-only thirty-six more than mustered to divide upon Mr Hutt's motion for the free admission of Australian corn. Yet was the debate ftr frnm being unimportant. Languid thoug!l it w, as, the speeches of Lord JohnRussell.. and Lord Howick, ofSir James Graham and Sir Robert Peel, are worth comparing. In regard to principle, the most micro scopic eye.can...

GREAT FACTS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 15 October 1845

GREAT FACTS. A visitor to the Anti-Corn-Law Leagae Bazaar, speaking of its appearance says: -From the door on the east side to the Queen's door on the south side, which last is to be the only way of public exit, the visitor to the Bazaar will have to travel more than three quarters of a mile, and all within the house. A few turns taken in the saloons, which a re the only places where the visitors w'll have it in thair power to walk to and fro, and the mile will be completed. When we turn to the right on leaving the Shakspeare saloon, and passing in to the lobby of the dress circle, we. turn to go into the circle itself, The two centre boxes have been removed, and through one of them is the passage out of the grand hall. Belore descend. ing the steps to the floor, we stop to gaze. There it is-look upon it-look and be amazed-look, and try to hide your. astonishment; you turn your eyes to the roof and see the gorgeous panel ling of florid gothic, illuminated from above, not to dazzle y...

AUSTRALIAN CORN. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 15 October 1845

AySTRALIAN CnN.-We beg' to remind our readers that the meeting for the purpose of. pelitioning. the home government for thli' repeal :of the duty on colonial corn importedi into Englanid, ill bo held. this day at twelve o'clock, wlicn it is to.'le? hoped that the public will show that their symnpathy for the agriculturists is as strong as ever it has been for the squatters. The qurstion is one of rapidly increasing imhportance; for ifth e system of compulsory purchase of ihomesteads be adopted, it is quite probable that in the course of" a few ycairs, the agricultural operations of the colony may give rise to an ex-i port trade. rivalling that of wool in importance. The desired concession is so reasonable, that it is' impossible thhliome government can long with hold it, it vigorously pressed upon: their attention. They ulmostyielded to the last attack, and will not be able to sustain another, unless through the supineness of the be siegers. While upon this subject, we may notice an...

ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 15 October 1845

ENGLAND. Co ovrcTs.-Mr Ewart on the 28th May, asked the under Secretary for the Icolonies whether any intelligence had reached the Colonial Office as to the result of the probation system which had been substituted in Australia for the old system of assigning convicts to private individuals as servants ? Mir G. W Hope said, that the system was so recently tried, having been only six months in operation when the last ac counts from the penal colonies were despatched, as not to admit, of any satisfactory results to have been yet attained. The probation system was based upon two principles, namely, the reform of the convicts, and to give the government the opportunity of employ ing their labour in the most beneficial manner to the colonists. Though the trial of the probation system was so recent, the reports respecting its bene"o ficial operation upon the conduct of the convicts were satisfactory, their date being July, 1844. With regard to the second ground upon which the pro. bationa...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 15 October 1845

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. We understand that the proprietors of the recently purchased property now familiarly known as the 11 Monster Mine,". are to proceed this day to a division of the terrain on which these much contested mineral riches are said to exist. We believe that one of the two parties is still very much averse to this proceeding, and would prefer an entire union of interests, work int the mine in conjunction, and dividing' the 'produce .amongst the proprietary ; but as lie other party cauinotbe brought to agree to this proposition, the division is to, be proceeded with, and we suppose thaLteach?hparty will then take posses sion of the portion :that falls to its lot, t'and commence the workings con furore and we sincerely hope, both for thee sake of the individulr concerned, and also for that ofthe colony, that they may derive all the benefit from the under= taking whicih they anticipate.

MR. O'CONNELL UPON THE GRANT TO MAYNOOTH. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 15 October 1845

MR. O'CONNELL UPON THIE GRANT '0O MAYNOOTH, The Liberntor.-I think we may be,, gin: to expect that the Act of Union' will be repealed. (Cheers.) I cannot bring myself to think that Sir Robert Peel himself may not be the very man to bring in the act for its repeal. (Cheers.) Hurra, then, for Peel and Repeal I (Cheers.) Who is it will tell me that Sir Robert Peel will not do it! When you talk of a man's future con duct, the best grounds on which to con jecture what that shall be is to look to his past conduct; and is there anything in what may be called the antecedents of Sir Robert Peel that is inconsistent with his bringing in an act of parlia ment for the repeal of the union him. self ? (Hear.) Was there ever, I ask, so determined an enemy of catholic emancipation as Sir Robert Peel, consci entiously, I admit, but still a little usefully to himself ? for it was by tak ing the ground of " No Popery" in his early political liti that he--the son of a manufactureir~a manufacturer o( hi...

STEAM COMMUNICATION WIT1' ENGLAND. From the Sydtney Herald. We have been so long accustomed to witness, in the Ocvernor's correspon dence with the Secretary of State, a frigid indifference to the interests of the colony, except in so far as they chanced to be identical with the policy of Downing-street, that His Excellency's Message to the Council the other even ing, on the subject of steam communi cation between these colonies and Great Britain, did certainly burprise us. The message was in reply to an address re questing His Excellency to transmit to the Secretary of State, and to recom mend to the favourable consideration of her Majesty's Government, a petition to the Queen praying for the extension io New South WVales of the benefit of the arrangement onder which mails are now despatched by steam conveyance to India and China.
