PORTLAND [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 5 November 1845

PORTLAND GUANO -Thy Hero, cuttei, leftfher moorings on Wednesday last, for the purpose of loading guano at the Law renc.e. The deposit)t is believed, is intended for the Government gardens at Sydney. This circumstance conbdys a useful lesson. It is calculated to re. mind the district where its gold is re moved to, as well as its guano. The manure is to be taken to renovate the exhaustcd soil of Sydney, and the gold to replenish the empty coffers of the colony. The best of the fun is, the district has to hear its proportion with' other districtstof the colony, of the ex pense of removing the valuable deposit from its own rocks, so that both money and manure are exported together. Th-. reflection is by no means creditabie to ourselves as a community, while the discoverer of a valuable manure, on.our .,wn coast, was made by a stranger, we are, alter a six years settlement of the district, not in circumstances to take advantage of the discovery. When will=_ the scandal of our want of ag...

THE LAND MINE [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 5 November 1845

iTn LEAD MINe.-The ore dis covered on Corio Beach last week, has been submitted to a rough analy ,sis, and found to be, as we antici pated, a sulphuret of lead. It is not *united with any other metal, or.if any such exist, the quantity is very .trifling. The ore has been submitted :lo the action of the blowpipe, by means of which the sulphur is ex pelled and consumed, leaving a but ton of apparently pure lead on the charcoal. It has also been-tested by iitric acid, which separates the lead from the ore, and forms a solution of nitrate of lead; this nitrate has been further tested by the addition of sulphate of magnesia, which by an Saction of double affinity, is resolved into nitrate of magnesia, and throws Lown uu IusuIuuiO precipItaiu or ani phate of lead. From the result of these experiments, there can be no doubt but that the ore is a nearly pure sulphuret of lead, or galena. the correct analysis of which, (adopting the acknowledged atomic weights of the ingredients), is: Lead.....

THE MINERAL KINGDOM. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 8 November 1845

THE MINERAL KINGDOM. The external shell, or crust, of the "earth, consists of atoms combined by the action of the air, water, heat, and weight. Sometimes in grains pressed into masses; at other times of grains cemented by the exudation and filtra tion of the finely-divided atoms of superior strata; and, sometimes of masses crystallized by evaporation, and often of ores which separate and melt into metals. We find, besides, to a certain depth, the remains of the ancient productions and inhabi tants of the earth and seas, and the most indubitable evidence of gradual formation'"a'nid impenetrable antiqyiity.

Nothing definite was done withi tle exception of a post ponemthnt for a week. [t is supposed that £1000 would be quite enough to pay the ex penses of a properly'qualified party to reside in London during a couple of sesionos of Parlanment, by which time it is believed, through actsvi'y and -sl, our wishes would be uccededto.
