VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 24 July 1841
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. The pecuniary matters of this com. munity have reached a crisis which demands an immediate public con sideration. If an understanding does not shortly take place between all parties connected with business,-and the services of the lawyers are put into requisition,-the result will be a ' na tional bankruptcy.' It is needless to blink the question; the fact is glaring, that no man in business can meet his engagements, as business transactions are now conducted. The banks, which haAe been the grand source of all the mischief, refuse the relief it is in their power to afford, and think proper, we are told, to transfer ALL OVEtRDUE PAPER into the hands of their soilcitors. We give the hint, and state. the PACTS? Let the. people of Launceston look cut while they have yet time. - Cornwall Chronicle: ....
PORT FAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 24 July 1841

SUPPRESSION OF VICE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 24 July 1841
SUPPRESSION OF VICE, The opening part of Judge Willis's Address to the Jury at the last Criminal Sessions is marked by a propriety of sentiment and expression that gives as a highly favorable opinion of h:s cha. racter. Indeed, apart fr:nm the usual personality of his manner, we look upon him as the most talented, active, and well-meaning public dignitary in the province. The following is the commencement of his address. " Nothing is more common (as I have elsewhere observed) than to hear those who are in a great measure ignorant of the criminal law of England, charge it with numberless hardships and indis criminate rigour; whereas, all who have studied it minutely, agree that it wants nothing to make it admired, but TO BE UNDERSTOOD. It is SO agreeable to reason, that even those who suffer by it cannot charge it with injustice.; s adapted to the common good as to per mit no --vice -to.. go .unpunished, which requires to be restrained. and yet so tender of the infirmities of human n...
CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GEELONG ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 24 July 1841
CORRESPONDENCE. TO TIE EDITOR O TIHE GEELONG ADVERTISER, Slr,-Whether this will ever reach its intended destination or not, bears about an equal chance with the pro. bability that His Honor will some day deem a respectable, intelligent, and numerous body of stockholders (forming at least one-third of the country resi dents, and occupying one.third of Aus tralia Felix) worthy of a regular post communication, which is enjoyed by every other civilized bodyof men under the British government. However, let it come to hand or not, as 1 have a little relaxation from the toil of dressing and scarifying my flocks, I think I could not devote my leisure. hours to a better purpose than that of agitating any point which may exist militating against the public good. As is natural to all men, I will take my starting post from that evil the present inconvenience of which I feel in the greater degree, namely, the want of a Country Post. If the remedy depended on our right to it, there are arguments ...

NEW DISEASE IN SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 24 July 1841
NEW DISEAE1 IN SHEEP. We have seen a gentleman from.the vicinity of Port Macquarie, who states that a new distemper has broken out there among the woolly tribes, which has proved most destructive on many estnblishments. One gentleman has lost withinW the list' few months" no less than 1000 head of'shep. The disease is something akin to-the rot, and affects its victims much hi the same way; it mdtle its appearance in that district shortly after the ,great floods, which visited the greater portion of the terrn. tory about the st of May last.-Sydiiey G5zette,
MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 24 July 1841
Irish AManufacture. - The demand for articles of home manufacture is daily on the increase. The generous spark of nationality seems to pass from breast to breast with the rapidity of the eletric flash itself. Nor is this matter of astonishment; our people, long enslaved by that degrading vice which was the besetting sin of Irish men, were insensible alike to self respect and national prosperity;. but no sooner did the voice of the great Apostle of Temperance arouse them from their torpidity, than they became aware of their true position, both- as regards their country and themselves. That the present movement in favour of our fallen trade is the result of total abitiner?ce, .rinciples, the most scep tical cannot deny: not only was the question mooted by many leading ad vocates of teetotalism, but a society for the sole purpose of encouraging Irish manufacture was established by the national Total Abstinence Asso ciation, Coleraine-street, long before any public demonstration was mad...

THE STAGNATION. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 31 July 1841
THE STAGNATION. The present "' crisis" has been for .six long months at its height, and still it remains doubtful whether it will end in a relapse or a cure. It is said that when we are at the lowest point of Fortune's wheel, we may expect to rise with its next revolution; but we" think it is very doubtful whether we have yet reached that lowest point, or if so, how lone the wheel is likely to ocillate near its present position with the load which now weighs it down. We may well be impressed with such uncertainty, when we look back to the fond anticipations of speedy relief, which were indulged in some months ago-atd when we consider that " time " has been mutually conceded by the members of the mercantile community to each other, and that THAT TIME is now flying fast, but without bringing "' healing on its wings." It is indeed a serious state of affairs when immense London houses are compelled to stop pay ment, as a mere secondary result of the scarcity of cash in the colonies! Thi...
JONATHONISM. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 31 July 1841
JONATHONISM. A Yankee of genius, by no means a lubber, Invented some ships built of tough India rubber, Which would walk in half no time all over creation, So thinking he'd found out a boon for his nation, To Congress he offered his Mackintosh fleet, Which he guess'd would all other craft very soon beat. But Congress his vessels thought fit to decline, Lest in sailing across, they should Run OUT THE LINE.
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 31 July 1841
LaOCAL ZNTEL.ZGZNCZ. CoMM'rTTALS.-John Adams was, on Saturday last, committed to take his trial, for assaulting constable Edmund Roache, and rescuing a prisoner from his custody; and John Candy for rescue only. They have both been admitted to bail. Of course we refrain from comment at present. On Thursday last, three of the troopers of the Border Police were committed to take their trial for steal ing a quantity of wine and spirits. It appeared that some spirits had been given to the troopers, by the drivers of several teams which had camped at the Ford near the police station; when the troop had thus got half tipsy, they broke open some stores otn the station, and helped themselyes, till the whole squad were roaring drunk. The officer in command wajs absent at the time, and on his return he found that he had to deal witlh a set. of infuriate madmen, without any means of procuring assis tance on the spot, and having no place wherein they might be confined, while the use of their arm...
DID YOU EVER ? [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 31 July 1841
DID YOU EVER? Did you ever know a cabman or a waterman with any change about him ? Did you ever know a tradesman ask ing for his account who had not 'a bill to take up on Friday ? Did you ever know an omnibus cad who would not engage to set you down within a few yards of any place within the bills of mortality ? Did you ever see a pair of family snuffers which had not a broken spring, a leg deficient, or half an inch of the point knocked off? Did you ever know a lodging-house landlany who would own to bugs ? Did you ever know the Boots at an inn call you too early for the morning coach ? Did you ever know a sentinel who could tell what building he was keep. ing guard over ? Did you ever know a dancing mas. ter's daughter who was not to excel Taglioni ? Did you ever know a man who did not think that he could poke the fire better than you could. Did you ever know a Frenchman admire Waterloo bridge ! Did you ever know a housemaid who, on your discovering a tracture in a valu. able Chin...
CORRESPONDENCE. CURE OF THE SCAB IN SHEEP. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GEELONG ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 31 July 1841
COnXSIO NDmENcC . CURE OF THE SCAB IN SHEEP. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GEELONG ADVERTISER. SzI,-The ignorance which prevails in this district relative to the proper means to be used in the extirpation of scab in sheep, induces me, a well-wisher to my brother colonists, to afford them the prescription for extirpation most ap proved of in the Sydney side. In .the first place it may be as well to remark, chat, as in housewifery, so it is in sheep-husbandry, " a stitch in time saves nine." On the first-the very first appearance of scab, the knife should be used, and indefatigably persisted in, so long as a " single spot" is to be seen. The dressing to be applied I shall here. after specify. The shepherd should be provided with a sufficient quantity of this medicine ; and night and morning he should " overhaul" his sheep in the hurdles. On the detection of a spot, he should open the wool about it, and take good care to scarify deeply not merely to scratch. His knife should make a " chequer" o...
