SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 15 October 1845
SOUTH AUSTRALIA. We understand that the proprietors of the recently purchased properly now familiarly known as tne Lb 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, working the mine in conjunction, and dividing the produce amongst tie proprietary ; but as the other party cannot be hrought to agree to this proposition, the division is to be proceeded with, and we suppose that each party will then take posses sion of the portion that falls to its lot. andi commence the wo kings con furore : andl we sincerely hope, both for tlhe sake of the itndividu,,ls concernpd, and also for that of the colony, (hat they may derive all the benefit from the under taking which they anticipate.

STEAM COMMUNICATION WITH ENGLAND. . From the Sydney Herald. -. .We have been so long accustomed to witness, in the Gcvernor's correspon. denee with the Secretary of State, a frigid indifference to the interesth'of the colony, except in so far as' they chanced to be identicalwith 'the policy oi Downing-street, that His Excellency's Message- to the Council the other, even. ing, on the subject of .steanircommuni. cation between these colonies and Great Britain, did'certainly burprise us.

A WORD IN THE EAR OF MR POLK. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 October 1845
A WoRD Iw tue EAR oF Ma POLKO. -Hearken, MAr Polk, President of the United Slates of America, to a'friendly whisper of Punch. You have beeii lately expressing an intention of seizing on the Oregon territory ; and in defiance: of .the British Lion, appropriating the lion's share. You have thereby caused the said lion to wag his tail, and roar. Attend to that rear, 1Ir Polk, mark that tail-be warned, and beware I. Run not your head into the lien's mouth. In other words, do not engage your4 self in a contest with Great 'Britain Iir' the first place, you Want money to buy powder and shot; you have no natioidal uncle, nor anybody else, to lend you a sixpnaeo'e, for those .who lend sixpences expect, to see them again. Secondly, Mr Polk, there is a circumstance on which it behoves you well to ponder. Among your glorious institutions that of slavery is very conspicuous. You have a negro population.

INTRODUCTORY LECTURE. Delivered by the Rev. A. Love, in the reading-room of the Geelong Literary Institution, Oct. 14, 1845. (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 October 1845
INTRODUCTORY LECTURE. Delivered by tlhe Rev. A. Love, in the reading-room of the Geelong Literary Insitution, Oct. 14, 1845. (C ?ntlnued from our last.) Por nearly the satme reasons a knowledge of Geography is also in dispensible in the study of History. The greatest confusion and kniscon teption must be the result, where the mind is stored with facts con nected with many ages, and as many couthtrics, if it is not previously pre pared by a knowledge of the various divisions, subdivisions, countries, kingdoms, mountains, seas and rivers, which form resting places for the mental eye, as it wanders through space, and greatly assist the mind to forming clear and distinct notions of what is read. Confusion, we ob served, must be the consequence where History is studied without any regard to Chronology; but it must be "confusion worse confounded," where this delightful study is under taken without either a previous or a simultaneous studyof Geography. Every one |knows how the mind accommo...

SYDNEY MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 October 1845
SYDNEY MARKETS. Flour is dull of sale, and prices re. main unchanged. Maize has taken a slight advance, and the best samples are realising, 2s. 10d. to 3s. per bushel. Cape and English Barley are scarce and much wanted. Hay continues very unsteady, and prices fluctuate greatly; good hay of either kind sells well, but no fixed prices can be quoted. Butter is arriving fast, and on the decline. Cheese.-Very scarce, and In great demand. Bacon and Hams.-The market at presei.t is completely glutted with both, which have fallen considerably in prices, 3d. to 4d. being the most that can be obtained for them. Pigs have not been very plentiful lately, consequently have sold well, and realised good prices. Tallow is realising much the same prices, and very saleable, Hidos have lately very much declined in price, not peing worth more than lid'. to Il. per lb., and to obtainwhich they must be well cured and in very good order.

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 18 October 1845
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND, WHEAT.-Monday last was the final day for receiving tenders for from twenty to thirty thousand bushels of wheat by the Commissariat Department at Launceston. Our readers will be naturally anxious to learn the result. which seems contrary to the general anticipation, The whole quantity ten dered is upwards of one hundred thou sand bushels; dt prices varying from 7s Id to 103s per 1001bse. One tender (or 1000 bushels) was at 13s 24; tinbt, with this exception, there was no higher tender than 10m. Of the quantity ten. dered, we understand about 27,000 bushels have been accepted, varying 7s Id to 7s lid per 100lbs. It is ex pected that the average will be 7; 6d, which gives-4s 9d per bushel of 641bs. -Courier.

The appointment of a Committee to take' steps for procuring informa tion respecting the bar, with a view to the improvement of the channels into the inner harbour, as well as to watch over and suggest local im provements generally, is a most grati fying sign of the advancing import ance of Geelong as a commercial em porium. The Committee have put themselves into communication with Mr Degraves, whose character as a civil engineer is of the highest rank; but on account of his absence on a surveying expedition to the Falls of the Harwou (to ascertain the practicability of conveying the water into the town, without the aid of forcing pumps) nothing definite has yet: been done. The erection of a bridge over the Barwon will be taken into -consideration at a future- meeting of the Committee. lThe .proprietors of property in the line of Yarra-street are also bestir ring, themselves once more, in the endeavour to raise a fund for level ling the street at the end next the Wharf; and as it is ...
