Agricultural and Pastoral News. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 August 1841
Agricultural and Pastoral News. Important to Agricullurists. - A plough, constructed on a new and improved principle, the workmanship of a Mr. Joseph Herbert, of Carlisle, has found its way to this colony by a late arrival. It as so constructed as to plough two furrows at once. An ex perimental trial will be made of it shortly, to which the agriculturists in and about Camden, will be iuvited to attend. It is reported to be a light and easy draught for three horses, which must necessarily be a great saving to farmers. IHorses are recom mended in preference to bullocks, for working the plough. Certainly the introduction of this invention for tilling the ground, is well worthy of attention. -Sydney Monitor. The wonderful powers of the micro. scope have just opened to us a new field of discovery and gratification-it has shown us that each individual thread or fibre of wool is a flat semi transparent ribbon-shaped substance, serrated or saw-shaped on both its edges and ribbed across each...
SQUATTING IN THE COUNTY OF GRANT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 August 1841
SQUATTINu IN TIIH COUNTY OF GRANT. A considerable degree of alarm has prevailed lately, in consequence of a report 'having been raised that notice s were actually being served upon the holders of squatting licenses within the limits of the counties of Bourke and Grant, ordering them to remove beyond the boundaries of these counties. The report emanated from the Port Phillip Gaz-tte, and was incorrect in every particular. A lingering doubt still ex ists in the public mind, that there lb Some truth in the rumour, and we shall therefore endeavour to' clear up the matter, as far as the uncertainty of the measures adopted and intended by the government on the question of the land regulations will allow. We believe that some change is in contemplation, but its exact nature and mode of working have not yet been fixed by the Governor in council. Such being the case, and as the usual squat ting licenses are now being granted for the ensuing twelve months, without any additional restrictions,...

MELBOURNE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 August 1841
MELBOURNE. At the Police Ofice, yesterday, Mr. Thomas Sutton, master of the Devon shire, appeared to answer the complaint of Bridget Gorman, for illegally.detain ing goods conveyed by him for the plaintiff from Geelong to Melbourne, To save the time of the court, Mr. Conolly, for the defence, stated to their Worships, that the case could not, by any pssibillity, come within their jurisdiction, as he was prepared to prove, even on the plaintiff's own showing, that it was a mere contract between the master of the Devonshire and the plaintiff, to carry goods in his vessel, for a certain freight. Such freight had not been paid; but, when ever such money should be forthcoming, Mr. Conolly's client would deliver up the goods. He reminded the Bench, that the plaintiff's remedy, if the.goods were wrongfully detained, most.be by civil action, and not by charging the defendant criminally. 'I'heir Worships conseqnently dismissed the case,
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 August 1841
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. The arrival of the Shepherdess, not with emigrants as was expected, but with. 1100 barrels of foreign flour, for the Local Government, and advices of large quantities to follow by every vessel, has caused some dismay in the town. There appears no probability of any emigrants leaving England under the.Government Bounty System till Sir John Franklin has replied to the last despatch of Lord John Russel ou this head. The colony is certainly in -'sorry condition - his Excellency declining to take quarterly contracts for meat-the great want of agricul tural labour, and the arrival of foreign flour, which has cost the Government more than it cculd have been bought for, here, have brought things to a pretty pass; aud if the people had communiiy of interest, there would instantly be a. public meeting, not for address, but redress. The system of Banking in this town must be altered. ii is not long since, when a notorious usurer was a Bank Director; on discount days, he woul...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 August 1841
LOCAL ZNTELLZGENE. Tun ApHItAs1A.-As we expected, this far-famed steamer is henceforth to be confined exclusively to the trade be tween Corio and Melbourne, during six days of the week. As will be perceived from our advertising columns, she will start from Melbourne every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, at 10, a. m.. and from Corio every Tuesday, Thurs day, and Saturday, at 7, a. m. The conduct of the Melbourne Directors in granting this concession is highly praise worthy ; although we still think that it would eventually be found better (even in a profitable point of view) to alter the days of sailing, so as to allow the Melbournites to remain from Saturday till Monday at Geelong, and do away with the Sunday trips on the Yarra. Such, we believe, is the opinion of every one in this township; but we are far from being so illiberal as to deny the right of the Melbournites to look at the matter in a different point of view. BoLTIer. - - A lodging-house keeper, named Morgan, having manag...

THURSDAY, AUGUST 19. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 21 August 1841
THURSDAY, AUGUST 19. The aboriginal native Bonojon, was again brought up for examination. A man named Brough deposed that some time ago, Bon-jon, Yammer-ween, and a native woman named Mary, were with him and another white man in a hut of Mr. Bowden's; that during the night the blacks were quarrelling; and Yamer-ween started up and collared Bon-jon and a white man in the tent; that he (Brough) turned all the blacki out of the tent. Bon-jon had a short' piece like a carbine ; and after he turned them out he heard a shot fired , that afterwards lie admitted Bon-jon and Mary into the tent. In the morning he saw Yamer-ween, and gave all three blacks something to eat. He went out to dress some sheep, and in the course of the morning, he heard another shot, when Mr. Bowden said, I hope these blacks are not murdering one another." He never saw any of the three blacks afterwards. The Rev. B. Hurst here conferred with the prisoner in his own language, who again stated that the witness lirough...
