NIGER EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 24 July 1841
NIGER EXPEDI'TION. (From the " Friend of Africa," for January.) Before the first month of the opening year shall have passed away, the ex pedition destined, we trust, to be the harbinger of peace and civilization, to Africa, will have left the shores of this country, accompanied by the good wishes and prayers for success ot all Christians throughout the land; and as it will form one of the leading objects of this paper to report its progress. and to circulate the information which it may confidently be expected to communicate, it may not be uninterest ing to lay before our readers some details respecting its ou:fit and move ments up to the present t:me. Three iron steamers have been built by Messrs. Laird of Liverpool, and fitted with every convenience which their well-known- experience could suggest. At their launch, they re ceived respectively the names of Al bert, Wilberforce, and Soudan (or Friend of the Blacks). The vessels are thoroughly equipped with every necessary which pru...
INDEPENDENCE OF AUSTRALIA FELIX. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 24 July 1841
INDEPENDENCE OF AUSTRALIA FELIX. The coPnexion between this province and the middle district of New :.?$ottrth .Wales ha been characterised by the total want of mutual good feeling. The growing prosperity of this youthful colony has been made subservient to the aggrandise ment of its tyrannical elder brother. It has been reared like a slave, not for its own benefit, but to con tribute to the wealth and power of the mlost selfish of:masters. In these days of enlightenment, however, such a state of affairs could not long be suffered to exist: the oppressed' district knows how to assert its rights, and England, the parent of both, has the inclination as well as the power to act as an impartial and peremptory umpire. It there fore amounted to a kind of moral certainty that the present train of affairs would not long continue without a change. Rumour has long been busy in this matter. When the new regu lations respecting Crown Lands were .first promulgated, separating this colony fromn t...
CAPE BRETON. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 24 July 1841
CA PE. BR ET ON. (From "Tihe Witness ") It is now forty years since our poor. countrymen of the lighlands, driven out from their native soil by its appropriation to the sheep.farming system, first'crossed the Atlantic to seek for refuge and subsistence on the harren island of Cape Breton. Numn bers of thr brethrethren, reduced to the like extremity, have since joined them, having neither art to carry to a profit able market in the richer colonies, nor money to purchase land in.a better soil. .Miserably poor. having even the pas. sage.money of their families as a burden .upon their first scanty resources in a . foreign country, in an isolated situation, and still further separated from their neighbours on the continent, by speaking a different language, wholly unlettered, and less than half civilized, it might have been expected that they would sink in a short time into a state of aslaolute and unmitigated rbarbarism. Unlike the emigrating savages of old, they had not even their prie...
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 24 July 1841
LOCAZ INTELLIGENCE. TItIBUTe oF RESPECT TO CAPTAIN FYANS. - It is a pleasing relief to the dull aspect of every.day affairs, to per ceive that] amid all the disheartening circumstances of the present.crisis. the spirit of liberal gratitude is not quite extinct in the public mind. It will be found in another column that several residents in the town and neighbour hood have got up a subscription, in an unostentatious and unpremeditated man. ner, for the purpose of testifying the gratitude of the public for the success. ful endeavours of Captain Fyans to *secure to this township a constant supply of pure water. The breakwater, which has effectually secured to us that bless. ing, must bhe looked upon, in the present infant state of the colony, as a work of magnitude and merit. It has now un. dergone the test of a dry summer aud a wet winter, and has been found to be completely successful. We therefore hope that the amount of subscription will bear some proportion to the merit which it i...

ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 24 July 1841
ENGLAND. Mr Grote attempted- to obtain a hearing on the subjrct of the police and gaol expenses of New South Wales, but the motion was cut short by the house being counted out. The Aborigines Protection Society held a meeting concerning the late summary execution of the natives in South Australia. The South Australian Commissioners begin to talk of remuneration for their services I The loan of £200,000 to South Australia is proposed to be provided for out of the consolidated fund. Lord Seaton has been appointed Governor-general of India. The energies of the Aborigines Pro. tection Society are to be mainly di rected towards Western Australia. The Union of the two Canadas is completed, and Lord Sydenham has formally assumed the Governorship. A rumour was afloat in London that there existed an intention to destroy the ship York (1015 tons, which ar rived here a few months ago.) The rumour was considered so well founded that a notice was immediately issued from Lloyd's-notifying the sus...
SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 24 July 1841
SYDNEY, REWARDS TO INFORMF.RS.--The time is, we trust, fast approaching when the courts of this country will be purged of every relic of its original slavery. The system of granting rewards to common informers upon the conviction of crimi nals is loudly exclaimed against by those who are conversant with the police re. gulations of other countri',s, and ex. perience proves that it is one which operates as if it were a direct bounty upon the commission of crime, instead of a preventive against it.-Chronicle. SCARLETINA, which we fondly trusted had deserted us, has, (luring the present week, broken out with all its former virulence, and several families.of the first respectability are left to mourn the loss of valued members of their house. hold.-Gazette. We understand that several highly tespectable gentlemen, deeply inter ested in the prosperity of our adopted land, are about taking measures to establish an Agricultural Association. We have heard that a public meeting will shortly be...
SATURDAY, JULY 17. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 24 July 1841
SATURDAY, JULY 17. Majnr F B. St. John was sworn in as a magistrate of the territory. The Crown Prosecutor filed an infor. mation against .Mr. D. C. Simson, for perjury. Mr Barry, plaintiff's counsel, waived the' right of twenty day's notice, and said he was ready to go into the matter in a manly manner. I he defendant in a firm voice pleaded not guilty. The Crowni Prosecutor stated the case. The defrndant, with his partners, D)ut ton and Darlot had become indebted to a mercanttile fu in in town. Legal pro ceedings ensued. Process was issued against.the defendants, and as they did not appear, judgment was entered up in due course. A summons had been ohtnined by-the defendants, calling on the plaintiffs to show cause why judg meut should not be set aside, on the ground that he (Simson) had never been er ved with the process of court, An ailidavit to that effect had been made by the defendant, which he (the Crown Prosecutor) would pruve to be totally false. The Chief Clerk of the Cour...
