ENGLAB.ND. Alssrs MAontfiore, Brotlhers. - The firmn of l Messrs Montefiore, Brothers, stopped payment on Thursday. A very nu:nerous meeting of the creditors wase held this morning at the George and Vulture Tavern, at which a state ment of their affairs was exhibited, showing assets to - the amount of .E125,000 to meet all outstanding en gagements. 'T'heir debts amount to £94,000. A committee was appointed to report to a general meeting of creditors, to be held on Friday, the 12th instant, the best method of wind. ing up the concern; and a confident expectation ivas expressed as to the receipt of very large remittances from the Australian houses in the course of a few months,--Sun. Some surprise has been expressed in the city at another stoppage of the United States Bank, as annoiunced this morning from the New York paper's, so soon after the attempt to resume specie payments; but by persons well acquainted with what was going on the event was distinctly foreseen, though not, perhap...

THE STEAMER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 10 July 1841
TIIE STEAMER.-- Monday last was a proud day for Corio. The steamer ar rived-and every one was delighted. If we were to write for an ace, we could not say more. Any description that we might attempt to give of the enthusiasm of the people, or the beauty of the vessel, would fall so far short of the .reality, that like ' glorious old Will,' we.must abandon the attempt " to gild refined gold." Sullice it to say, that although ouir hopes were of the brightest description, their cdnsummation' has come, with an agreeable surprise. During the week she has twice made the voyage to and from Melbourne; but owing to want of arrangement in supplying her with coals, she has never made the trip writhout- being delayed upwards of an honr at William's Town. On Thursd.iy, ( ith the exception ol this delay,) she completed the dis. tance from Melbourne to Corio in less than five hours; The run from William's Town was accomplished in three hours and fifty.five minutes. .he will con tinue to run twice a...

AGRICULTURE. LUCERN. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 17 July 1841
AGR?,ULTURE. LUCERN. This plant of the artificial grass kind, is chiefly cultivated as green fodder for horses and cattle; and yields a larger produce than most others. It has a perennial root, and an annual stalic, which rises full three feet high in good land. There are several vari eties, the voilet, yellow and variegated flowers, wich are supposed to be only a variation of the same plant, arising accidentally from the seed. However, neither the yellow nor the variegated is ever so strong as the purple flowered, and cannot of course be so profitable to the cultivator. Lucern, may be estimated as the choicest of all fodder, because it lasts many years, will bear cutting dow, four, five, or six times ayear, enriches the land on which it grows, will fatten cattle, and often proves a remedy for the diseased. Three quarters of an sacre of Lucern properly managed, has been found to be abundantly sufficient to feed three horses during the whole year. The soils most suitable to the culti...
BOUNDARIES OF THE COUNTY OF GRANT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 17 July 1841
BOUNDARIES OF THE COUNTY OF .. " . GRANT. .?he Province of Port Phillip was ,.formerly divided into; two :districts _Western 'Port and Portland -,Bay.~ each having a Commissioner of Crown Lands. These districts were also called the Counties of Bourke and Grant in all matters relating to the sale and registration of lands. The boundaries of the counties were not then' fixed upon ; but left to be datermined when the progress of the surveys--the open. ing- of new townships-the increase of the population-and the alienation of land from the Crown-shoiuld render~ it expedient to subdivide.ithe districts, and to increase the number of the counties., When the township of Portland was opened, at a distance of 150 miles:from the capital of the county of Grunt, it was corisiderid,.expedient to; define ihellimits.of that county, and to make the.township of Portland the nucleus of another county to 'be named Nor "manby, the boundaries of which will remain undefined until some inter vening townsh...

ZSCEL.LA.NEA. The French and Plum pudding. No prejudice can be stronger than that of the French against plum-pudding. A Frenchman will dress like an English man, swear like an Enghshman,and get drunk like an Englishman; but if yuu would offend him for ever, compel him to eat plum-pudding. A few of the leading restaurateurs, wishing to ap pear extraordinary, have " plomb pooding" upon their cartes, but in no instance is it ever ordered by a French. man. Eveybody has heard the story of St. Louis-Henri Quntre, or whoever it might be-who wishing to regale the English Ambassador on Christmas day with a plum-puddming, pricured an excellent recipe for making one, which he gave to his cook, with strict in junctions that it should be prepared with due attention to all the particulars. The weight of the ingredients, the size of the copper, the quantity of water,. the duration of time, every thing was attended to, except one trifle-the King forgot the cloth, and the pudding was served up like ...
