ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

ENGLISH NEWS. BY THE JOSEPH WHEELER, FROM LIVER- POOL, 27TH DECEMBER. (From the Hobart Town Courier). Tsheck, the man who discharged a pistol at the King of Prussia, was executed on the 14th instant, but the breaking alive on the wheel was dis- pensed with. In London, last week, Capt. Burn, of the Himalaya, was fined £20 for leaving behind him at Port Nelson, a seaman named Roe, who had been guilty of drunkenness and robbery, and refused to return with the vessel, the defendant having neglected to provide himself with a certificate of the man's desertion. The subscriptions in Manchester for public parks, &c., now amount to nearly £30,000, The value of the pigs exported an- nually from Sligo is £40,000. A strenuous effort is about to be made against the coming session by a large body of attorneys and solicitors, to effect a repeal or modification of the cetificate tax. At the last celebration of the Holy Sacrament at Wandsworth church, a lady placed on the salver at the altar...

HOBART TOWN. EXPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

HOBART TOWN. EXPORTS.—We are sure our read- ers will be happy to learn that fifty tons of potatoes have been shipped in the Anna Maria, for Singapore, by the firm of Kennards, Chapman, and Co. Really this firm seem de- termined that our colonial produce shall find a market if they can by possibility open one. If this trade were once opened, it might, in time, lead to a similar one to Hong Kong. In this article, at least, we can fear no competitors.—H. T. Advertiser.   HOBART TOWN MARKETS —We have nothing to communicate respecting the markets—wheat however is rather look- lng up, and maintains a price from 3s 7d to 3s 9d. We have heard also, that   4s has been given for a small sample of very prime quality.

SYDNEY. HOMEBUSH RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

SYDNEY.   HOMEBUSH RACES.   (From the Sydney Herald), THESE races commenced on Wednes- day last, and notwithstanding the in- clement weather, and break-neck state of the roads, the attendance was more numerous than could have been ex- pected; had the weather been propi-   tious, this meeting would have been a brilliant affair; it is to be regretted that our Eastern sporting friends, who contributed so handsomely, had not a more favourable opportunity of judging the speed of our horses; to talk of pace at this meeting, would be absurd; the course was not only   much heavier than it ever was since the races have been established, but so boggy, that in many parts the horses sank in up to their knees. The arrangements gave general satis- faction. FIRST RACE. The Metropolitan Stakes of five sovereigns each,with fifty sovereigns added, weight for ago. three miles. Mr Brown's b. g.

Remarks.—A splendid race: Qui Hye proved himself a first-rate nag, and had he not slipped in the third heat about two lengths from the win- ning post, would have won the race. Benedict ran a good horse. Green Mantle promises well, running second in the two first heats, and a good third in the third heat. Healey's rush finish- ing the first with a dead heat was much admired. Time—First heat, ...

THE QUEEN'S BIRTH-DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

THE QUEEN'S BIRTH-DAY. Monday, the 26th, being the day fixed for the levee and ball at Go- vernment house in honour of the birth-day of our most gracious Queen, a large number of gentlemen attended to pay their respects to her Majesty's representative—his   Excellency the Governor. There must have been at least six hundred persons present, (many more than were present at any previous levee), of all ranks and classes, of all ways of thinking on political subjects, so that we hope we shall hear no more twaddle about the duty of those who are opposed to the mea- sures of the Governor not paying their respects to the representative of the Queen on her Majesty's birth- day. There was the usual display of flags both on shore and afloat, and in the evening the usual ball at Government House, to which the carriages are rattling at this present writing in a way that shows that there was a probability of as much crush at the ball as there was at the levee. Business was at a stand...

PORTLAND. THE GLENELG. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

PORTLAND. THE GLENELG.   PERHAPS the mouth of the Glenelg has been less visited than any distinguished portion of Port Phillip. The extension however, of the South Australians, to the divisional line of the two provinces has been the means of in- dicing parties of late to attempt a more dis- rect course to Mounts Schank and Gambier, than by the way of the Fitzroy, and now the opening of Rivoli Bay is likely to make the Glenelg at its termination still more frequently attempted. Mr Tyers, in the account of his survey expedition, to determine the 141st de- gree of east longitude, gave a very particular account of that river, at its entrance from the sea, and for some to distance inland. Mr, Arthur crossed the river, about twelve months since, at the mouth, with his loaded drays, and though he damaged his Wool with the salt water, he met with no other accident or dis- aster in crossing. Since that period one or two parties have attempted to cross, but from some cause or ot...

MELBOURNE. THE ABORIGINES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

MELBOURNE.   THE ABORIGINES.—A letter was read at the Town Council Board yes- terday, from his Honor the Superin- tendent, in reply to one from that body, relative to means being adopted by the authorities to prevent the blacks with their dogs, swarming into the town to the great annoyance of the inhabitants; his Honor stated that the protectors had admitted they had no influence over the movements of the blacks—and while he expressed his readiness to co-operate with the ma- gistracy in endeavouring to suppress the nuisance; he could not help blam- ing the inhabitants for encouraging the aborigines by giving them clothes, food, and money, for trifling services. His Honor suggested that no en- couragement should in future be given them, and that their dogs should be killed, when they come into town, this would soon make them keep away.— Gazette. NATIVE POLICE.—The indefatigable commandant of this native police, Cap- tain Dana, has received instructions to start for the W...

MARKETS. SYDNEY COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

MARKETS.   SYDNEY COMMERCIAL INTELLI-.   GENCE. From the inclement state of the weather   throughout the week, business has been almost suspended land the only sales re- ported are about eighty tons Manila sugar at previous rates. There is no al- teration to notice in the price of imported merchandise. SYDNEY MARKETS. WHEAT.—The state of the roads has prevented all communication with the agricultural districts, and this week we have only received a few loads. The southerly wind has prevented the coast- ing vessels from coming in from the Hawkesbury and the Hunter, and but little wheat has therefore been received     during the week. Prices range at the mills froth 3s to 3s 6d per bushel, accord- ing to quality. Twelve loads of wheat paid dues at the Corn Market, and were readily bought up by the millers and corn dealers at from 3s 3d to 3s 8d per bushel ; the average price per bushel for the twelve loads was about 3s 6...

WRECK OF THE CEYLON OF GREENOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

WRECK OF THE CEYLON OF GREENOCK.   The following extracts from private letters give particulars respecting the loss of the Ceylon, of Greenock, Fer- guson from London for Bombay, and show the position of the reef upon which she was wrecked:— "Bombay, Oct. 30.   "The Ceylon, under my command   was wrecked on the Cherbaman bank or reef, off the Laccadives, on the 1st of October. She struck upon the reef at half-past nine o'clock at night. We remained by her three days, using every exertion possible to save the ship, and put a considerable port on of her cargo overboard, and would have succeeded in getting her off, only that the wind unfortunately changed and set a heavy sea in upon the reef which forced her farther on, in spite of all our endeavours to heave her off, although we had a bower anchor and 85 fathoms of chain out. "The position of these dangerous   reefs is incorrectly laid down in the charts. They are 18 min. 18 sec. far...

ORIGINAL LINES FOR THE GEELONG ADVERTISER. REMEMBRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

ORIGINAL LINES FOR THE GEELONG AD- VERTISER. REMEMBRANCE.   Can I forget that sacred place Where first I met, dear girl, with you? Where first you bow'd with so much grace And gently whispere'd "How d you do?"   Can I forget the time, that brought You, first of of all, within my view ! Can I support the painful thought, Of having soon to say " Adieu !" Can I forget all I have said— All that has pass'd 'twixt me and you? 'Tis true 'twill be forgot, when dead I am—if memory dies too. Can I forget the time you stood And watch'd me far as eye could see; Appearing just as if you would Bestow the last sad look on me. 'O can it be that friendship dies ! Friendship so pure, so close, and true: Cemented with the strongest ties— Can I be broken up by you ? Can I forget that stir-light night, We stood upon yon beauteous hill, While the moon moved in glory bright, And all besides stood sweetly still? Can't fortget that "What d'you mean?" You once propos'd to Mister B? ...

SELECT POETRY. THE AGE OF BRASS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

SELECT POETRY. THE AGE OF BRASS. I've sigh'd,—but I will sigh no more,—   "For silver, or for golden ore,   And thought 'twould ever pass; But these their virtues oft have lost, And I have found out to my cost, True virtue lies in brass. I once adored a maiden fair, With eyes of blue, and auburn hair, And thought to win the lass; But soon stept in a rival, who Came in with. brazen face to woo, And won her, by his brass. I brandished next an author's pen, And hoped to be successful;—when   True merit's all a farce; But striving here, I found again, 'Gainst impudence—'twas all in vain, I wanted still the brass. Next a a fop upon the town, I sought to gain a slight renown, And dressed by fashion's glass; But here full soon I was cut out, And driven to the right about, By those who had—the brass. Rejoice, ye brazen bullies, then, Who laugh to scorn all honest men, Ye have the magic pass; Let others wish for richer ore. Give me kind fate, I ask no m...

SPEED OF HORSES. To the Editor of the Launceston Examiner. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

SPEED OF HORSES. To the Editor of the Launceston Examiner. An opinion has been entertained the last two or three years, by many of our colonial sporting gentlemen and others connected with our northern turf, that the Tasmanian horses are but little slower than the English racers; and as your Saturday's print remarks that the last twenty years furnish but two or three instances of parrallel speed, allow me to place a few facts before you which will very materially alter this supposition. Mr Editor, our horses in speed are far, very far behind the English. nags, and many years must elapse, and more horses of tried speed and power must be landed as sires and placed in our studs, before we can come up to the very extra- ordinary, time the races are now run in England.       I will place before you, (for the en- lightenmnent of those who think so highly of our colonial horses) the performances of our best, and their time ; and also a few transcripti...

ONE DISTRICT COUNCIL DEFUNCT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

ONE DISTRICT COUNCIL DEFUNCT. (From the Sydney Atlas.)   When the charter for the district of Sydney was in course of prepara- tion, it appeared, that, such was the anxiety of Sir George to sign, seal, and deliver it at the earliest possible moment—to delay not one instant longer than was absolutely necessary, the satisfaction which he, anticipated from seeing his triumph over the wishes of the people complete—that it did not occur to him that the police district of Sydney included the city also. For the "police district of     Sydney," the charter was, therefore, originally prepared and executed and in due form delivered, with be- fitting grace. and solemnity, to the new warden, Mr Barker. After it had been in Mr Barker's possession some time, and after several meetings had been held, pursuance of its provisions, some member of the Council unexpectedly discovered,   that, among other things, the police of the city of Sydney was pl...

EXTENT OF RUNS. MR ATLAS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

EXTENT OF RUNS. (From the Sydney Atlas.) MR ATLAS.—In my last letter to you, I casually alluded to a charge against squatters respecting the mo- nopoly of large tracts of land. I will now explain to any one requiring such information, the means by which such an evil, if general, would be removed, and by which its accidental occurrence is obviated. No such explanation can be required by those acquainted with the practical details of the present system ; but it is the lot of the squatters to be denounced by those whose idea of woods is of mahogany or of an ebony ruler, and whose notions of pasture seem de- rived from glances at the green barley in the market-place, or a column of agricultural produce in a commercial dictionary. If A claims a larger tract of land than he really occupies, the fact is palpable to his neighbours —B, pro-   bably A's neighbour, though possibly a searcher for new runs, seeing a part of the land claimed in unoccupied   applies to th...

SAM SLICK ON THE FUNERAL OF CAMPBELL. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 4 June 1845

SAM SLICK ON THE FUNERAL OF CAMPBELL. Ah! poor Campbell! he was a poet,   a good poet, a beautiful poet! He     know'd all about the world of imagina- tion, and the realms of fancy; but he didn't know nothin' at all about this world of our'n, or of the realm of England, or he never would have talked or the "Pleasures of Hope" for an author.

This spinnis' jinny will be honoured by the highest folks in the land, have diamond-rings, goold snuff boxes, and purses of money   given her, and gracious, knows what.
