GEELONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 12 February 1841
GEELONG. New Buildings.--The great number of houses at present in course of erection gives Corio the appearance of an en- tirely new settlement, whereas a few weeks ago it looked as quiet and staid as an old English borough. Corio is only in its earliest youth, it is only beginning to find its feet. It has not been dragged into a premature precocity like Adelaide, but time has been given for its bones and sinews to get hardened and well knit. It has not like Adelaide been reared in a hot-house, and thus rendered sickly and liable to premature decay. It is a young oak reared from the acorn, and tended by those rough nurses the elements, so that-- Fixed in the rifted rock, Proof to the tempest's shock, Firmer its roots strike the ruder it blow. Two-thirds of the town of Corio at present consists of buildings in course of erection, and of houses receiving additions and improvements:-- Many now build who never built before. And those who once did build, now build the more. Last week we ...

COLONIAL PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 February 1841
COLONIAL PRESS. The settlers on the Macquarie, in the unparalleled season of drought which has just terminated, have been much gratified .to perceive that the embankment at Tombs' Lake, by a timely opening of the sluice-gate, "has ensured to them a running stream in lieu of the chain of pools, "which, during previous summers, served but to indicate the course of that river. The acquiescence of the government to the representations made .to them on this subject, entitles them to commendation. The -èluicc has again been opened, and it is ieally most cheering to -observe the effects.-Launccston Advertiser, February 11. DaCADrut.

SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. THE CASE OF EUROPE AGAINST FRANCE IN THE MATTER OF THE TREATY OF JULY 15. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 February 1841
SPIRIT OF THE ENGLISH PRESS. THE CASE OF EUROPE AGAINST FRANCE IN THE MATTER OF THE TREATY OF JULY 15. LORD PALMERSTON'S "MEMORANDUM.-The ad- hesion of France to the principle on which the Allied Powers found their policy-that of maintaining the integrity and independence of the Ottoman Empire, was formally signified in Marshal Soult-'s despatch of the 14th July. The ground of difference between France and the Allied Powers is, as Lord Palmerston justly observes, entirely as to the means best calcu- lated to attain a common end. England has always maintained that the occupation of Syria by Mehemet Ali was inconsistent with the fundamental principle of the alliance-" the integrity and independence of the Turkish empire." Frauce, on the other hand, es- poused the cause of Mehemet, and insisted that the independence of Turkey would be best secured by leaving him in possession of his conquests. In June, 1839, the British Government gave in a plan for the settlement of the affairs of the...

ST. HELENA. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 February 1841
ST. HELENA. As it seems that a report continues to prevail at Hie Cape and India, that since the transfer of this island to her Majesty's Government, heavy port charges and other duties have been levied upon the shipping, it may be right to state, that such a report is totally without foundation, and can only have been invented by those who feel it their interest to deter vessels from calling at St. Helena. In confirmation of this assertion, it has beeu deemed expedi- ent to subjoin the very few charge» which are made by the Government, and which are as follows : Clearance Fee, 8s.6d.-The payment of this fee entitles the captains to receive water, supplies, ice. Entry Fee, 5s.-This fee is only payable when goods are landed from a vessel. Manifest Fee, 10s.-This fee is only payable in the event of there being something to be written off or added to the manifest. Water, Ss. per ton.-This amount is levied to defray the eipenses incurred in conveying water to the wharf, and thence by me...
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. PORT NATAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 16 February 1841
CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. PORT NATAL. \Ve have received some additional accounts from Natal» by which it appears that a body of bushraen Kafirs had commenced a series of attacks upon the farmers, who had determined that, unless they could in the mean time be induced to desist by quiet means, a commando of 200 meA should go forth against them on the 201b instant. These Kafirs are under the rule of Mapee!, and from their numbers think themselves able to exterminate the emigrants. On one occasion they sent a message to say that, though the farmers overcame Dingaan, they are not so easily to be conquered. They do not fight with assagais but 'with bows and arrows, the latter of which are poisoned. When attacked they secrete themselves in the bushes, and. thence unseen discharge their weapons on their enemies. They are, therefore, if not formidable, at least dangerous to encounter. With respect to the Zoolas, the emigrants are no longer under any dread of tbem, and consequently many of the farme...
