SYDN EY. The, barque Columbine, from Hlull, PIow lying at Deloitte's wharf, was struck by lightning during the terrific storm which octurred on Friday night (16th July). The lightning first struck hter on the forc-royal.mlst head, and running downwards spliitered the top. galiant.mast, at tie same time snapping the chain topsail tie into four pieces, and splitting many of the blocks aloft. It then went over each sidle of lre fore. rigging, and des:cended ilbo Ihe water by the chain runners and plates, rip ping off a considerable quantity of the cipper and slarting several treeinails and bolts,.

NEW ZEALAND, ANOTHER MARKET FOR STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 7 August 1841

NEW ZEA?LAND, ANOTHER MA. KET FOR STOCK. The New Zealand settlements appear to progress in a highly satisfactory manner, and appear to have altogelher escaped from the depression of trade which has pre vailed thloughout the neighbouring colhnies. Her artiicial resources (principally in the shape of English capital,) are not yet exhausted, aind such beingsthe case, the pre sent state of affairs is the most favorable that can well be conceived for enabling. h'er to spring in'to a sort of prematnre luxuriance. In the mean time, New Zealand &ffers an extensive market for the profit able disposal of the superabundant flocks and herds of Port Phillip. The Launceston trade is not now so profitable as formerly-the V ande monians, after monopolizing the Port Phillip trade, and carrying on a smuggling communication with the distant parts of this settle ment, have grown mighty indig nant all at once, when they find out that the Pliillipians are likely to change places with them in the ...

MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 7 August 1841

1MUSCLLEANEA. The Holy Cities.--We quote the following from the Augsburg Gazette: -England has entered very readily into an idea formed of rendering Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and the other holy cities of Palestine, independent of the-Turkish dominion. A proposal for the appointment of a Christian gnver nor at Jerusalem. has also been well received at London ;.. and it is now certain that the European powversare about to open a negotiation with the Porte on tlhis subject in concurrence with France. . !Vecrspapers. - De Tocqiievill6 in his work on America, gives thiis fbrcible ,sketch:--"?A newdpaper can drop the same thought into a thousand minds at the some moment..

THE BLACKS AND THEIR DOGS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 7 August 1841

THE BLACKS AND Tl-liEIL DOGS. A few weklts.ago, we poiited out the advanluges which would he likely to follow the extirpation of the wiid dog ;; namely, the doing away wilth the neces sity of yarding the sheep every nIight, and the consequent cradication of that troublesome dliseh's,, the scab, by allow ing the sheep to choose their own bedding ground, to say nothing of the great amount of labour which would be saved thereby. TI;ese views are neither new nor theoretical; their correctness has been established by the experience of the settlers of Van Diemen's Land. and their truth is unlversally acknow ledged by the settler% here, although no measure is likely to lbe adopted for their accomplishment.". There is atother growing evil, which has not yet been felt, but soon m:y be, and that severely ;--it is the allowing the alboriginal natives to breed and carry about with them whiole parks o; dogs, which are of no use to themselves, but may ultimately become a pest to. the settlers in ...

COLONIAL POLITICS. SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 7 August 1841

CO2LOTIAT. POZ?Z'ZCS. SOUTh AUSTRALIA. There are several remarkable points about the discussion in Parliament res. pecting the affairs of South Australia, which deserve particular attention. Lord John Russell was very reserved in his remarks upon the course of policy which would probably be pursued by the government in, future, and he was severely censured by Lord Stnnley for hisdisingenuiy. On one pointr, how. ever, there appeared to be a general unanimity of opinion, namely, that the management of tihe colony should he taken out of the hands of the commis. sioners, and that it should either receive n representative constitution, or be re dured to the level of all other Crown Colonies. Lord Stanley illustrated the evils ot the uniform price system, and the land. jobbing propensities of thecolonists, in a clear and forcible manner. lie had loudly protested against the formation of the colony in the first instance, and his remarks were consequently coloured with the flnsh of triumph ...
