No Title [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 3 July 1841
The.welfare of this district being the grand object towards the ad. vancement of which all our wishes should tend, we cannot but con gratulate the community upon two different events which will materi ally contribute to accelerate its on ward progress. We allude to the opening up of a regular steam com munication with Melbourne, and the bringing into the land market a large number of country sections, in various parts of the interior: the former event facilitating the extension of our external relations, and the latter tending to develop t.he resources of our rich and exten sive interior. Some may doubt the policy of opening the Crown Land market at the present juncture, and others may feel themselves individually aggrieved by the manner in which the lands have been selected. There may be a great deal of truth in these complaints ; but, looking upon former instances of mismanagement, we ought to consider ourselves fortunate when the amount of evil does not altogether counterbalance ...
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 3 July 1841
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND Appointment.-The Rev. P. Palmer succeeds, pro term, to the appointment of the late Archdeacon. We are informed that the supply of British goods in the colony is fully equal to the consumption for the next three years. It is astonishing what little effect the presence of Sir John has upon the good people of Launceston. With the exception of a few Government officers, he was visited by no one; and as he walks through the streets he is noticed by none, save a few gaping school boys, all anxious to catch a glimpse at "the Governor ! " &nbsp; The entertainment given on board her Majesty's ships Erebus and Terror, on the 1st June, was the best arranged thing of the sort ever witnessed in the colony. About three hundred persons were present, and everything was done by the entertainers to make the ball and supper creditable to them- selves and to the service. His Excellency Sir John Franklin, and Captain Ross arrived in town on Saturday evening (12th June). His Exc...

WAR BETWEEN ENGLAND AND THE UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 10 July 1841
WAR BETWREN ENGLAND AND THE UNilED S'TA'I'TES. Tas news from England and America is becoming of, a more .Perioas nature every day. it inow appears that it is not in the power of the General Go. vernment of the United States to release Mr IM'Led. the local govern tient of New .York having air inde pendent right to deal with him as they .think:proper. The chances of a war are thus rendered much greater, - especially as the latest intelligence is, that a true bill was- found against Mr M'Leod. The following extracts will axplainthelse points more fully.: We have now arrived at the middle of the month of February, and it is in this monthl that the trial is to talhe place. Everything, therefore, depends on the local government.of New York. Un'orturately there is hot time for the supreme government at \VWashington to become acquainted with the strong impression which this affir has made in the British -parliament, or to learn that most important circuinstance, tlhat when Lord John Russell...
MINERAL PRODUCTIONS OF THE COLONY. To the Editor of the Sydney Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 10 July 1841
MIlNERALPRODUCTIONS OF -THE . COLONY. To the Editor of the Sydney Gazette. SIR, - B'ng a subscriber to your paper, I am glad to see that recently you have devoted a portioni of your cplumns to scientific suhjects. It can ,not have escaped yourobservation that in all,works treating on this colony, a lamentable ignorance exists both upon its regetable and mineral productions, abounding its it does in more rare and numerous specimens of bothl tlian per Iaps ary othier country in the world. CoIal exists in every district of the territory, if we are to jialge by the usual ionlicationsL-the geoldigical fea tures. Slate; which is now imported from England, can be found in many places of as good a quality and colour as the best Isedales. In the upper parts of the Shoalhaven River several fine beds Ihaove been very lately dis covered, which I have seenr, and must say I consider of a very superior qality, which can be wrought at a comparatively trifingexpense, as the upper layers lie within s...

THE SQUATTING ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 10 July 1841
STHE SQUATTIHG ACT. It seemi to ben maxim with our 'Governor, that whatever miny be Shencficial to thie iquatters, must be hulrtful to the interest of the Crown, and: that every additionai burden which can be imposed upon the settler must be so much pure'gain to the government. The idea of the possibility of reciprocal prosper. ity never yet entered into his calcu lations. Instead of fixink a capitation tax upon assigned servants, for the support of the Border Police, (which plan, besides raising the required sum, would have struck at the root of several crying evils), our paternal government instituted the present poll-tax upon sheep and cattle an assessment upon the enterprise of the settlers-a direct drawback to the prosperity of the colony; and a discouragement of that branch of industry which at present forms the foundation of the general wel fare of the entire population, What would be thouglht of the British Parliament if it were to levy an assessment upon every pea-knife mad...

FENWICK versus WATSON. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 10 July 1841
FENWICK versus ?VATSON.-This case came off at the Gerlog Supreme Cout on Tuesday last, and several contingent circumstances combined to render it quite a spectacle. Our police magistrate appeared as plaintiff-Mr Powlett,Capt. Fyans, and Lieut. Addis were on tihe bench-Mr Carriigton volunteered a. counsel for the prisoner-and a great number'of thelpassengers by the Aph rasia attended to have a peep at the most wonderful ' lion' of Geelong-its court-house. In reporting this case, we do not know - hether to laugh or to loqk grave. -whether to sift the real merits of the case, or to describe the forensic elo, quence of the counsel, the judicial acumen of the bench, the idiotic stolidity of the plaintiff, and the ..* derinabili t.ofitheaudience._ We. must ab~ndon thle task of:.describing the scene. however, from inability to paint it in colours sufmriiently vivid.
