No Title [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 8 November 1845

Wa have delayed our present publication a few hours in order to give tho latest intelligence by the Sydney mail, which did not arrive until this morning. MonE MINEs.-We again have the pleasure of recording the dis covery of an addition to the mineral wealth of Geelong. A specimen of copper ore from the quarries on the Barwon has been shown to us, and it has been roughly analysed by a medical gentleman of this town. The indication of copper in this locality has long been known to exist, but it is only within the last few days that the ore itself has been found. We forgot to.mention in our last, in reference to the lead ore. that the specific gravity of the Geelong specimen (including its earthy matrix) was 6-4, while a specimen of Adelaide lead ore In our possession, is only 4'6, although more free from exterior earthy matter. In our extra sheet of this day, we give a condensed treatise .on mineralogy, in a popular form, which we shall continue when op portunity offerx, with a view t...

SENGLAND. IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT. The 9 Private bus'ness' of Parlia. ment, this ression, involves the Legis Intire in an inextricable labyrinth. Members are overwhelmed by tlhe Hvalencle of railway hills, besides the unusual prevsiure of other private and public business.

To the Editor of the Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 8 November 1845

To Ahe Edi.to of the Geelong Advertiser and Squgattrs' Advocate. SIR-Would you have the kind ness to inform me what is the reason that dollars which were paid to me as four shillings, and rupees which I received as two shillings, will not now be taken from me at more than three shillings for the one, and one and sixpence for the other. As 1 have seen no public intimation of the decrease in value, nor can any of my immediate circle of friends inform me, but that it is so. I find when 1 offer my four shilling dollar, to a shopkeeper, I am informed, "only three shillings Sir," and so with the rupee, a similar intimation "eighteen pence Sir," If I had been so unfortunately fortunate, as to have one hundred pounds of the coin referred to, and I did think them preferable, to Hank notes, as not likely to be eaten by mice, destroyed by rats, or burned by fire, I find that although they might have escaped those dangers, and remained untouched, that never theless, without any apparent dimi nu...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 8 November 1845

SYDNEY. DEFENCFS OF SYDNEy.-Some Of our contemporaries appear to think that the mment there is the slightest hint of a possibility of war, is the proper time to make at outcry about the in?acusable neglect of the Board of Ordnance, is not. providiog Port Jackson with more ef ficient defeuces; and so pitiable is the outcry. that one would imagine we are in that state that a hostile Irigate would enly have to anchor off the Cove and the Commissary and the Cashiers of the various Banks would immediately form a procession for the purpose ot escorting all the bullion in the town for the acceptance of the captain. This may be very natural, but lit is certainly toolish,. for our enemies are sure to find out our weak points with. out such special calls upon their oaten. tion as have been made. Now, how. ever, that there is no prospect of any immediate collision,-now that the " little cloud" spoken of by Sir Robert Peel has disappeared, we do think at.. tention should be called to the subjec...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 8 November 1845

NEW ZEALAND. Sinister and alarming reports were circulated at Auckland, and were very generally believed. It was said that the movements'of the natives in the neighbourhood of the forces at Waimate were of so suspicious a nature and so indicative of treachery, that Colonel Despard had ordered all the settlers on board the North Star, and destroyed every house in the place except the bishop's and that hlie had strongly garrisoned...Ina addition to' this, there wa, a differ once of opinion between him and his soi-disant ally ?Vauha as to have their future plan of operations, the latter contending that the atack upon a new and strong pah constructed by Kowiti, should be made with small arms only. It had been fully ascertained that Ieki had been joined by Nopra with 700 fighting men; and a pro posed large gathering of natives in the neighbourhood of Hutt river was exciting considerable apprehen sions for the safety of the southern settlements. R{auparaha had signi fied his attention of ...

GOVERNOR GRAY'S DEPARTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 8 November 1845

GOVERNOR GRAY'S DEPARTURE. His Excellency Governor Grey took his formal and final departure on the 25th October from Adelaide, in the E.I.C.'s ship Elphinstone. After levee and presentation of addresseh. his successor, Major Robe, officially assumed the reins of Government, his first act being to invite his Gouncil to dine with him in the evening. The new Governor of New Zea land takes with him £6000 in cash, for the payment of the troops, not relishing, we suppose, the prospect of finding an empty exchequer, with Government paper at a discount. Captain Grey also takes 350 stand of arms, which we can certainly very well spare, and which he will, no doubt, find of great use in the coun try to which he is proceeding. South Australia, once insultingly called " a bankrupt colony," is now not merely in a condition, to pay all legitimate debts, past as well as pre sent, but to lend from her super fluous assets the sum of £6000 to the New Zealand Government; a cir cumstance which, coupled ...

MORETON BAY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 8 November 1845

MORETUN BAY. The investgation of a very disgrace rul affair respecting the treatment i?ve some Coohlies, has occupied the Police Court for sme days. It ap Spears that a squatter named Sandeman, brought eighteen Coolies to the Dis trict, in. his service, and :the whole of them haviug come before the 3ench to seek redress for ill-treatment, and non-payment of wages, it came out in evidence that a person named Ayrest, the superintendent, was in the syste matit habit of beating and flogging these men-such flanggellation being ad ministered on the bare hack, after hey had been tied up to a tree, and accortd-' ing to the testimony of one of the Coolies, this miscreant compelled him to cut the stick he was to be flogged with, and on his refusing on one ucc .ion to do so, he was flogged with a hurdle-stake-which horribfe truth wa. confirmed by the evidence of a gentle man named Sheriff, who was present at the time.

RUMOURS OF NEW SQUATTING REGULATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 8 November 1845

RUMOURS OF NEW SQUATTING RI GULATIONS. SotME ofourcou itenporaries seem to think that the truce between the Government and the Squatters has retained too long unbroken, and are'again digging up the hatchet. If we do not follow their example, we shall at all.events keep a strict watch over passing events, so as to be.resady for action, whenever the necessity arises. Of the variot., rumours which have from time to tithe been whispered of late, there is not, in our opinion, one which i deserving of credit. 't he increase of the. survey department, which is only old news polished-up, is the only outward sign of activity which the Government has yet manilested. That the coun nties will be surveyed, their boundaries proclaimed, and special regulations brought to bear upon the occupiers of county lands, is, wie fear, very probable but we cannot beliere that the in convenient and unprofitable system of .'putting up sections of land to annual competi~ion,--a system which has been tried and f...
