MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 31 July 1841
IZSCELLANEA.. Bent/ham on War with Franct Conquests made by New Zealanders have some sense in them; while the conquered fry the conqueror's fatten. Conquezis made by the polished nations of antiquity, - conquests made by Greeks and Romans-had some sense in them. Lands, moveables, inhabit ants, every thing went into the pocket. The invasions of France in the days of the Edwards and the Henrys had a rational object. Prisoners were taken, and the country was stripped to pay their ransom. The ransom of a single prisoner, a Duke of Orleans, exceeded one-third of the national revenue of England. Conquests made by a mo dern despot of the continent have still more sense in them. The new pro perty being contiguous, is laid on to his old property; the inhab'tants, as many as .he. thinks fit to set his mark upon, go to increase his armies ; their substance, as much as he thinks fit t. squeeze from them, goes into his purse. Conquests made by the British nation would be violations of common sen...

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 31 July 1841
CH?zA. The following information has been collected and abridged from the Sydney Gazette and Sydney Herald, which have derived the intelligence from the Canton Register and the various mer cantile crciulars issued from the com mercial houses of ilacno. B y the Giraffe, which arrived on the 16th July at Sydney, from China, we have received a copy ofrthe Canton Register of the 20th April, from which we can glean nothing definite as to thbe ,ate of affairs at the seat of war, Tihe paper however contains a deal of information relative to the domestic afalirs of the Chinese government, which we give in a complete though cornlensed form. There have been rumours for several days past that Keshen has been put to death, but they have been generally d scred-ted. The determined severity of the im. perial edict seems to leave little hope for Keshen. He was sent to Pekin in convicts' clothes (chuen chow ubh, a criminal's dress) and statesmen in such circumstances are rever admitted to an anud et...

MESSRS MONTEFIORE & Co. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 31 July 1841
MESSRS MONTEFIORE & Co.-We al. luded in our last number to the failure ol this large London firm, connected as they have been for some time wish these colonies. It appears that the London branch of the house is composed ot three brcthers. the sons of Mr Jacob M.ontefiore, Mr Breillat being a partner at Sydney, holding 3-16 shares, and %lr Furtado at Hobart Town. who has 5-16 in the firm. This establishment imports into England annually upwards of 4000 bales of wool, which the houses both here, at Sydney, and at Port Phillip draw against, when shipments are made They also export large quantities of merchandise to these colo nies, and make advances thereon by hills at long dates. It is said that a short time before they stopped pay t?ents Messrs Goldsmidt advanced the London firm £30,000 to meet their engagements, and just before the sailing of the Persian, a draft from S3 dney for £14,000 was presented, and application was again made to Messrs Goldsmidt to make further advanc...
SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 31 July 1841
SYDNEY, (From the Patriot's Correspondent.) EAn entire amendmont is in contempla tion with respect to the details of the existing Police Act. The principal cl;anges in the re-construction will be a considerable increase in the pay of the constabulary, and a better appli cation of the fines arising from convic. tions under the Act. If these changes be effected, a manifest and essential improvement will have taken place upon the actual law, both in principles and details. The Council re-assembles next Tues. day. It is expected that the discussion of the Estimates will be interesting, in consequence of the reduction of the government officer's salariei,. rumoured to be in contemplation by His Excel lancy* Sir George, however, proceeds most equitably-beginning with himself. Mr. Deane gave a concert on Wednes day evening, which was well attended.

ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 31 July 1841
ENGLAND. We are sorry to say that the com mercial prospects of London and the provinces were very unfavourable. Several large houses were reported to have stopped payment. Preparations were making to take the decennial census; and instructions to that effect were sent to the regis trars in the various parishes in the United Kingdom. It is proposed to have a railway communication between the cities of London and Edinburgh ; the govern. ment engineers having given in their report upon the most practicable route. An attempt was to be made by some members of the House of Commons to get the management of the Post Office into the hands of Commissioners, and to do away with the office of Post. master. General. From August, 1834, to October, 1738, the number of Hill Coolies in troduced into the Mauritius from Cal cutta, amounted to 12,243. The Duke of Wellington and Du'ke of Sussex were both labouring under severe indisposition; the former was recovering. The expense of the convict hulk est...
THE POLICE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 31 July 1841
THE POLICE, TO THE EDITOR OF THE ADVERTISER. SIR,-Permit me to enquire, through the medium of your very popular journal. "whether there be any other duty for the whole police force of NORTH Geelong (consisting of three constables,) besides standing listening under the windows of a certain Hotel from nine o'clock till eleven? Now, you will agree with me that justice demands.that the other houses deserve the like watchful care, and that the young gents who amuse them* selves -with breaking windows, should be allpwed to,.conlinue thkpi, armless 'sports. I am, &c. A TRUE .BRITON.
JUDGE WILLIS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE GEELONG ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 31 July 1841
JUDGE WILLIS, TO TlE EDITOR OF THE GEELONG ADV ERTITIER. SIR,-The Press of Melbourne seem de 'termined to " make face" against a most important and independent public officer. The oligarchy of Melbourne are moving all things that.their puny efforts can possibly agitate, in order to injure thie integrity'and woand tle feelings of Judge Willis. Having, from a constant perusal of your journal, arrived at the conclusion that you are " OPEN to ALL, INFLUENCED by NONE," I beg leave to trouble you fora space in your columns. The true causes of the vile clamour raised against the upright, indefatigable, learned and intelligent judge of Austra lia Felix are, that he is independent, that he knows his duty, and that he performs it punctually, fearlessly, and firmly. These are the TRUE and sole reasons why this eminent lawyer is un popular with the time.serving part of the population ot Port Phillip who de. ,signate themselves as Tus TON of Mel. bourne. His Honor on his arrival looked forward t...

CLUB OF QUEER SUBJECTS. TO THE EDITOR OF TIlE GEELONG ADV EitTISER. Si,--By a curious concatenati n of concurrent catatrophes, I found myself the other evening in company with Sam Slick, Sam Weller, and Brother Jona thon. Of course, in their presence, I was s all ears," although you must not from thence infer that I am an ass, like some of your contemporary hacks. The following is a correct report of their conversation, and I shall contrive .to play.the eavesdropper upon them at their future confabs, so that their united wisdom may not be at a stand.still like Sam Slick's clocks, or he blown over board like the fro h from Samivel's pot of heavy wet, or be cast upon the floor like Jonathon's quid. By a kind of freemasonry or odd fellowship they soon got acquainted. asid-in less than no time were comfort ably seated round a gallon of ' Barwon,' which was soon wonderfully diminished by the repeated attacks of Mtr Samivel; Jonathon soon had recourse to his favo rite amusement of whittli...
