THE COMING CRISIS IN THE PUNJAUB. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 25 October 1845

THE CO.MING. CRISIS. IN THE PUNJAUB. A crtsis in the affairs of the Punjaub approaches slowly, but, to all ap pearance, surely. A few more months, and in all probability the youthful Rajah and his party will be compelled to. seek the protection of the British Government, and the army of obser vation Sir H. Hardinge has so unob trusively and silently assembled on the Sutlej, against the rebellious Goolab Sing and his new allies, the Affghan chiefs. That protection and assistance will not of course be refused ; they will be given upon terms of future dependent alliance; and such relationis always prove in India the " beginning of the end" to native states ; not so much, it may be, from our ambition as from the utter childishness of ordinary Indian princes. Protected by British Government against their own subjects, their pride blinds them to the cause of their repose, and they fancy themselves again to stand alone. Peace and tran quility give them riches; and with wealth they think th...

At present we can-only state that the principal fact Iscertainetd is that the strata of nmud, sand, and shells rest :upon a substratum of hard blue clay, at a uniform depth of.14.feet bdlow the level of low water; so that if the upper strata were removed, a'depih of three fathoms lit flood tide could e ciarried across the bar.

MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 25 October 1845

MELBtou lNE. Tnu LABOIR MARKET.--Several of the men who lately arrived at Geelong by" the Platina, have found their way to:Melbourne, where they refuse (it is said under the influence of discarded servants and others who endeavour, by their confirmed idleness and nefarious designs, to create an impression on the labor market, so as to raise the price of wages to its highest possible standard) to enter into engagements but at an exorbitantly high rate of remuneration, which the settlers, notwithstanding their pressing necessities at this busy season, are by no means disposed to submit to. So pertinacious are those men and other laborers in "sticking out" as they call it for high wages that it is estimated there are not 'far short of a hundred of this class prowling about town supporting a miserable existence, when, by accepting a fair rate of wages and repairing to the bush they might enjoy present comfort, with a prospect of future independence. The rate of wages has sensibly risen ...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND, TTHr SSASON: AND THE CROPS.' The weather has been exceedingly capricious durin'g the last two,months: the north side of the island has been. visited with heavy and repeated rains, which "produced the highest floods evrr kniown by Europeans' here; while the south side has only been partially and occasionally favoured with moist weather. During the last and this week, however,'the favour has been increased; a' considerable quantity of fine close rain has fallen, and the crops are now looking well where anything like the: ordinary process of cultivation has been adopted; but, it is a lamentable fact, that that process is not general ;it is' disgraceful to see wheat spring ing slowly and sickly through land too poor and barren' to be -able to yield a crop of: any kind.; It'is no' vwonddr'wne hear of wheat averagin'g' twelvel bushels per acre?, it is onily surprising that it' '-'eaches that amount.'

OUTRAGES BY THE BLACKS.; To the Editor of the Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate. River Barwon; near Geelong,   24th Octorber, 1845.

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 25 October 1845

SYDNEY. NEW MUSIC. --- " The Lord's Prayer, composed for one or four voices, and respectfully inscribed to the Right Reverend William Grant Broughton, D.D., Lord Bishop of Aus- tralia, by I. Nathan. Published by Baker, King-street. Mr Nathan's beau- tiful arrangement of this prayer has reconciled many scruples which we had to its being set to music at all; and we feel bound to confess that we,have gone through it with considerable gratifica tion. There is much plaintive and ex pressive melody in it, blended with harmonies of the first order; and we hesitate not to say that we cannot call toirecollection a sacred piece of modern composition that has pleased us more. -Sydney Herald.

SHEEP WASHING AND GETTING UP OF WOOL. To the Editors of the Sydney Morning Herald. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 25 October 1845

SHEEP WASHING AND GETTING UP OF WOOL. 'To the Editors of the Sydney Morning Herald. GEr'fLEMLN, - Sheep washing and getting up of wool is a subject which every individual in this colony is deeply interested in, as the wealth and prosperity of this country do and must, for a number of years, chiefly depend upon the price realised for wool in England and notwithstand ing all that has been said upon this subject, a great deal more depends on the condition in which wool is sent to market than a great many of the wool-growers are aware of; this can     only be hfilly appreciated by the   manufacturers ; but theyhave said   quite suflicient to let all know that it must be well washed and made very clean, and a sufficient quantity of yolk allowed to rise into the wool before it is shorn, to preserve it from grow ing hard, dry and harsh, and to give it as soft silky and pliable a   handle as possible. It is allowed, by all tha...

WARS OF THE CHRISTIANS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 29 October 1845

WARS OF TEIE CHRISTIANS. The world advances towards its assured and ultimate destiny bytlow degrees. Over a large portion of it men have learned to abhor the cru elty and impiety of offlering human victims upen the altar of superstition. That they ever did so is to us of this enlightened age a matter of wonder ment. With unfeigned horror we turn away from the pictures occasion ally found in antique history, or mniet with here and there among modern savages, of man presenting the blood of his fellow-man to the grim idol of his devotion. Such sacrifices, it is true, were usually single, and were reserved for great occasions. But if lthe victim was but one, he was yet a man; and no one whom .christianity has taught to respect man-no one who has learned to appreciate his generic- worth-can, even in fancy, witness his-immolation at any shrine, without a sense ofshame-a burning bl~lush of confusion-at the depravity which could prompt, tile iron-hearted ness which could execute, the atro c...

INDIA. ITwii " be recollected by' those 'of "bdr .readers conversant with the ,affairs of India, that at the close of ,the Birmtan war.the settlement of -loelmien, the British frontier, was strongly garrisoned (the 63rd andl 37th Queen's, and two Company's reginiments), and a considerable native population establishing itself there, it became a station of much import anice. 'The buildings, however, were of that hastily erected description ishich marks the abode of all newly congregated commniunities. A grow ing large town thus constructed, was rather annoying than satisfactory to the Company's government. Every exertion was made on its part to in duce the persons who had so seated themselves to either construct firm and,stable habitations, or to withdraw to a greater . distance from what is called in the Company's .phrase, the cantonment. These endeavours were in vain.' The "settlers," adopting .nearly the tone of Mr Boyd and the _Aistralian squatters, talked of"'fixity of tehure,"....

ADVERTISING.- ' Besides, said .the learned counsel, "the whole of the public announcemenot of Mr Simmon's intending to leave the Colony, was com prised in a single advertisement to that effect. Who ever heard, I wonder, of any body wishing to make any thing public, and discontinuing his adver tisement after the first insertion f Who is to sen a single adveatisement? ? How rany hundreds of people miay read the paper at their breakfast-table, and never cast their eyes on a once-iuserted ad vertisement. Why, the whole benefiet and object of advertising is only to be attained by perseveritgly forcing the matter on the attention of the public, till you cannot but have made themt aware of the object you have so view.

RUSSIAN POLICY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 29 October 1845

RUSIAN POLICY. TVe referred some time since (sRys the Journ.i des Dibatv) to the gigantic erffrts made by the Russian governs ment to reduce the Circassian tribes, and for the extraordinary powers vested in Count Woronzoff, Commander.-iu. Chief of the Army of the provinceof the Cau'casus. Our private letters from St. Petersburgh announce that Count Woronzoff set out from Odessa for Tiflis about the middle of last month, In order to visit the Russian establi.lh. ments on the coast. It is said that the news of the full powers vested in the governor of the province has restored to the army of the Caucasus a part of the energy which it had entirely lost.. The government, moreover, appears to count as much on the administrative capacity of Count Woronzoff as upon his military talents. One of the .mea hsores a.doptertl by him appears to Us cal-.. culated to produce more serious crsrse qduencestthsan would appear at first sight.
