LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE BLACKS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 14 August 1841
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE BLACKS.-The dead body of an aboriginal black was discovered on Maturday last, between the Barrarbool Hills and Lake Miodewarre.; lie had been sttiot;anil ihere is a train:of'i?ii-. cumstantial evidrnce against a black youth named Bon Jon, although, in the present state of the law, he Will mo4t probably escapejustike. Beo Jon was at one time attached to the Border Police, and several months ago he se duced the 'leubra of the deceased, who belonged to the Colac tribe. The in jured black Lept on the trail of Bon Jon ear a long time, and prowled around .he camp of the.police, watching for an opportunity to be revenged. The two enemies had probably met in the bush, when lon Jon;shot the deceased, but whether wantonly or in self.defence will probably never be cleared up. It is" not ki;dwn' hlow the black became possessed of the fire-arms. The promept and careful manner in which the affair has been investigated, reflects great credit upon the Commissioner. The body ...
PORT NICHOLSON. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 August 1841
PORT NtCIHOLSON. It would be greatly to the advantage of the settlement if a ship could be dispatched every month to England. That the loading can be provided, is provedby the quantity of oil caught on our coast. We should suppose enough oil is annually secured in our neighbourhood to freight twelve or fifteen moderate sized vessels. We can afford to pay as much for this oil as the good people of Sydney or Hobart Town. Indeed, being nearer home, and consequently saving the freight up to New Holland, and from New Holland to the longitude of New Zealand, we think it might be shown we could pay something more, and yet enter the English markets on equal terms. Be sides the oil, we have certain descrip tions of woods highly adapted to ship building, and which from their being of the immense sizes now so much in demand for steam boats of the first class, would not fail to meet with ready sale at a monopoly price, in consequence of it being now beyond the power -of the European and America...
COMMERCE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 August 1841
COMMERCE. It appears from a set of monetary tables. recently compiled that,. last year, the . two items of. edibles and liquors imported into New South Wales amounted in value to the large sum of £840,663, while the aggregate value of all .the wool, oil, and whalebone exported fell :short. of. that sum. by £?12,551. .. .. The following may be depended on as a correct estimate of tile' quan tities of wool exported from New South Wales during the five years preceding 1841: In 1836 ...... s,tII,ltBlbs. 1837 ...... 4,273,115 1938 ...... 5,428,903 1839 ....... 0,597,081 1840 ...... 7,669,9600 Total.... e7,580,767 lbs. Taking the average at the low rate of Is. 6d. per lb., the colony must have derived the sum of £2,068,557 10,. 6d. for this-grand staple article of export. The Australian Trust Company has commenced business. This company holds a charter from the crown, which is the best guarantee that the public could possess, of being protected from sinister designs.

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 August 1841
NEW ZEALAND. The settlement which the French some time ago formed at New Zealand, has been gradually dwindling away, there being neither wealth, numbers, nor activity amongst" the inhabitants to ensure " even an ordinary sub sistence." The 'Port Nicholeon club 'have taken measures for the erection of a splendid hall to be named the Athe. 1moum.
COLONIZATION OF NORTH AFRICA. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 August 1841
COLONIZATION OF NORTH AFRIICA. The present European population of the town of Pona (which has fallen off considerably since the foundation of Phillipville) is 3,000. Of these, 1.356 are Maltese, 1,116 French, 553 Italians, 94 Spaniards, and a few Germans. Swiss, Belgians, and Greeks. It certainly is remarkable that in one of the chief outposts of these African provinces the number of British subjects should actually outnumber the French themselves. But the Maltese are proba bly the very best race of Christian set tiers that could be induced to pass into Africa. Their language and their national character predispose them to harmonize with the natives, for whom the French have nothing but bullets and antipathy. The Maltese are active and industrious settlers in various parts of the Mediterranean ; they are accus toined to a scorching climate, and the penury of their native rock drives them into a life of adventure. It is not, therefore. very wonderful that they should congregate in on...
STATISTICS. BILL CIRCULATION OF GREAT BRITAIN AND IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 August 1841
ST.TISTXCS. BILL CIRCULATION OF GREAT BRITAIN AND JIRELAND. (From the Report of the British Association.) Mr. Leatham, a banker, from York shire, delivered a most important state ment on the amount of bill circulation in Great Britain and Ireland. The subject of the currency, he observed, was one of great importance, and it was in a state of great darkness: this was not to be wondered at, when men had never taken into account an element greater by four times than all the rest it involved--he meant the bill currency. Some years ego, a friend and himself were sorry to see disappeur from cir culation the small bills of exchange, because they considered that, next to gold, these bills.were the soundest part of the currency, as they were drawn for a limited period, and upon bankers. They had since got a return moved for in the HI-ouse of Commons, of the number of stamps issued during a given number of years, with a view to show the falling off in the revenue, in con sequence of the duty ...
DISPUTED BOUNDARY BETWEEN CANADA AND THE UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 August 1841
DISPUTED BOUNDARY BUETWEN CANADA AND TUiE UNITED STA'ES. 'A series of resolutions upon the subject of the north-easterli boundary have been'adopted in theMassachtisetta Hlouse of. Representatives by an tuaý nimous vote. They speak the opinion of New England in terse yet temperate language. These resolutions point out the necessity for an immediate settle. ment of the dispute, but contain no direct. proposition whether hostile or conciliatory. The commissioners appointed by the American Government to examine the disputed territory, have published their report. One thing is evident from this report, that several of the supposed facts on which the Americans rest their claim are not to be relied on. For instance, in following the line marked out by the New Hampshire commissioners in 1S36, they distinctly admit, that " the party was consider ably to the north of the boundary, and within the British boundary." The report, on the whole, seems to be drawn up in a fair and candid spirit, and...

DISCOVERY. PROGRESSIVE OCCUPATION OF NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 August 1841
DXsCOVE1Tr. PROGRESSIVE OCCUPATION OF NEW SOUTH WALES. T.he London Times of the 30th of March contains the substance of a des patch from Sir George Gipps. detailing the progressive discovery and occupation of the territory of New South Wales during his administration of the govern ment. Of course the colonial reader is already aware of the principal facts therein detailed, still there are several particulars blrought forward in a con nected manner which are worthy of attention. " One of the best grazing districts at present open in the colony is to be found on some table land called New England, on the summit of a ridge of mountains extending parrallel with the sea coast, between the latitudes of 26 and 32 degrees, here are to be found 66 stations. Towards the north, stations already extend to the country behind Moreton Bay, 300 miles beyond the limits of location. To the south and west they extend beyond Port Phillip to -the boundaries of South Australia. From the pastoral district...
