IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 19 December 1840
IMMIGRATION. T7he demand for laborers of every description becomes more and more urgent every day. This-neglected and almost unheard-of province, although the finest field for immi" grants in the whole range of the British colonies, has hitherto-beeti supplied with laborers, only at second and third hand, in small. numbers, with great difficulty, and at high wages. It appears.to be a maxim with the Home Government, that the more fertile a country is, the less is required to be done to obtain a revenue therefrom; while a patch of sand, or a barren rock, requires every attention to be paid to it ; on the same principle that a mother has a stronger affection for her cripple or idiot children, than for them that are whole. .Governmenthhas however conde scended to ALLow private indi viduals to introduce laborers under 'the Bounty Regulations. , The thanks of every one connected wili the dlstrict are due toMr Welsh for being the first to obtain and act upon this permission. In the mean ti...

THE INFAMOUS HIRED SERVANTS ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 19 December 1840
THE INFAMOUS [HIRED SERVANTS ACT. In our former remarks on this Act we were so ,much occupied with the neglect and ignorance of the Govern ment and its Offtlicers, that we paid no attention to the matter of the Act itself, Since then, we have had our attention directed to several of its, clauses;. and; we certainly are aeton ished how any body of men could be tathered together, so thoroughly vi cious and stupid as to concoct o, sanction such a confused mass of ab surdity and injustice. We cannot undertake the task of unraveling the contradictions and fol. lies which meet our eye in almost every section. That would be an endless and unprofitable task,-we shall con fine our remarks to a single section -the ninth. Any servant who owes his master a grudge may not only drag him from has home and business, to his great loss and inconvenience, without mak ing the slightest compensation in case of the charge being d-clared ground less, but, should the servant, as will often be the case, hav...

NEW SOUTH WALES ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 19 December 1840
NEW SOUTH WALES ACT. We have received a deal of news relating to this'.important measure, bat are quite uinable to give any precise idea of the futuro ccheme of government for the Australian colu nies. We have so many accounts of Bills introoauced and withdrawn, of new Acts, and Continuation Acts. and Better Regulation Acts-of Des patches sentt and Despatches disre. garded-of measures ordered, recom mended, and mooted, all jumbled into such a medly that we must give over the task of solving the mystery till next week. The grnertal tenor of them all however, is in favour of the inde pendence of Australia Felix.

These fires ho~wever are reryld iferent from those in the brush and scrub ot New South Wales, being imutch less dangerous to buldings and fences. In the open pasture land of thi? district, the fire marches along the grass at the rate of two or three miles a day, in a column ol perhaps severs miles front, and only a few inches deep, devouring all the leed in its course, but in general sparing the green ahrubr and trees. It has been only through great exertion that some sut tiers have been enshabled to preserve a few acres of grass on their stations. In some cases the fire can be beaten out with green boughs. Of course the blacks are the incendiaries 'fh s is another argument addedto the thousand and ...
