From John Learmonth, Esq., Gelong, Port Phillip: [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 12 November 1845

FrorirJuhn Learmonth, Esq,, Geelong, Port Phillip: 1.-I am of opinion that the passing of the Scab Acts has greatly tended to prevent the spread of the disease; and further that the disease It gradually disminiching in tlts district. 2.-1 am aware thata great diversity of opinion exists in the Port Phillip distr:ct, as to the general benefit to the comniulty, in the removal of sheep from place to place, during the month of February ; I think, however, this should be continued, but under more %tringent enactments. The proprietors .should, in .he fist pldce, obtain dutho y:ity from a Magistrate, and to this all pozsible .publicity should be given, botli ,by personal and written notice being given at the d:fferent stations through khichh the diseased sheep are to pasp, and which should be at least Aweniy-four hours previously. It is quite a common occurrence that diseased flocks pass through and over runs, (not being confined to roads) without being discovered for several days, and the...

APPENDIX TO THE REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE OF THE LEGISLAVIVE COUNCIL APPOINTED TO INQUIRE INTO THE LAWS RESPECTING THE SCAB IN SHEEP. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 12 November 1845

APPENDIX TO THE REPORT OF THE CUMMITTEE OF THE LEGIS LAVIVE COUNCIL APPOINTED TO INQUIRE INTOM THE LAWS RE, SPECTING THE SCAB IN SHEFP. From Foster Fyan, Esq, J. P., Com missioner of Crown Lands for the .District of Portland Bay:- - 1.-I have found no good result from the ecab Act in this district. 2.- I consider, from the complaints made to me for the last five 3ears, by numerous highly respectable settlers in this district, that the removal of diseased sheep in- the month of February is Iost destructive to establishment car ried on by industry and care, and of great injury to the district; I can also state, as the general feeling at present in the district, the great satisfaction the settlers would feel by the discontinu ance of permission to pass sheep through the district at any time. On well conducted establishment the month of February is one of vexation, diffi culty and trouble ; the proprietors being kept in constant uneasiness Stheir time occupied with endeavouring to save ...

From George Russel, Esq., Geelong, Port Phillip: [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 12 November 1845

From George Russel, Esq., Geelong, Port Phillip: 1.--I am of opinion that the working of the said Acts, have been to some ex tent beneficial in preventing the spread of ihe disease of scab, but at the same time I consider that there is ample room for modifying and extendirz Ihose Acts, by which they would become much more eff: ctual in preventing Ihe spread of, and ultimately eradicating that disease. 2 -1 am of opinion that the permis sion to move sheep in the month of February, is not at all a necessary pro* vision, and that in this district its oper ation has been attended with very serious injury to the interests of sheep owners generally; I consider that all scabby sheep ought to be cleaned on their runs, nothing is more likely to propagate the disease than flocks of in fected sheep travelling over on exten sive district, and it frequently happens, that the parties conducting such shsep are exceedingly careless while passing through the runs of others, allowing them to graze a ...

From J. C. Bates, Esq., Geelong. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 12 November 1845

From J. C, Bates, Esq., Geelong. 1.—The working of the Scab Acts has been very far from proving effec- tual in this district ; the disease has been prevented in some degree, but not to the extent required. 2:—The permission to move diseased sheep during the month of February, is very objectionable, being the principal cause of spreading the disease. While sheep infected with the scab are al- lowed to pass, even during one month, no district can be said, to be wholly free from scabby sheep. Where the runs are extensive, the sheep depastured on them may be kept for a season clear of the roads likely to be traversed by them, if the shepherds can be depended on ; but where the stations are, or when they become, fully stocked, this pre- caution cannot be resorted to. I am, therefore, of opinion that the provision has, and will have, a very injurious effect. 3.—I consider that the penalties at present imposed ought to be greatly increased, in order the more effectually to prevent the spre...

From M. Pette't, Esq., Bunningong, Geelong. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 12 November 1845

From M. Pette t, Esq., Bunningong, Geelong. I do not c nsider the presennt Scab Act sufficiently effectual in preventing the spread of that disease, nor does it afford sufficient protection to the owners of clean sheep, as I have known flocks in- fected by diseased sheep travelling over, and being depastured near, clean runs. I do not consider that any person should be allowed to take up new country with scabby sheep, or be allowed to drive diseased sheep further into the interior than where they are now de- pasturing. The minimum fine, fifteen pounds ; the highest, twenty pounds. All dis- eased sheep to be fire branded, and registered in the schedule given in to the Commissioner.

ENGLAND. IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 15 November 1845

ENGLAND. IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT. After a variety of questions, do mestic, commercial, and political, had been answered by diflerent members of her Majesty's Government, Sir James Graham moved that the order of the clay be read for the House resolving itself into a committee of the whole I-louse for the purpose of considering a grant to the academical institutions of Ireland, and upon the question "that the Speaker do leave the chair," observed, that he had made this motion for the more formal purpose of obtaining a grant for these new colleges from a committee of the whole House. Mr S. O'Brien expressed his dis approbation of the bill, and declared that publio opinion in Ireland was most unfavourable to the proposition iuvolved in its tenth clause. All parties wore united in the opinion that it was disgraceful to make the appointments to the professorships in these institutions a Government job ; and that such would be their cha racter was evident if the tenth clause passed in its pres...

THE FAMOUS RACER ECLIPSE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 15 November 1845

THi FAMOUS RACER ECLIPSE. Such is said to have been the bad tem per of Eclipse, that at one time it was thought impossible to bring him to the post except as a gelding. On this ac. count, he was placed in the hands of a rough rider in the neighbourhood of Epsom, and who being likewise a noto rious poacher, worked him almost off his legs; riding him about the country on business during the day, and fre quently keeping him out all night on poaching excursions. This treatment although it quietedhim enough to enable him to race, still never entirely sub dued his indomitable spirit; and, ac cordingly, Fitzpatrick and Oakley, who rode him in almost all his tracei, never attempted to hold him, content ing themselves with sitting quiet upon the saddle-All the best six years old horses of the year having entered against Eclipse for the King's Plate at New. market, O'Kelly oflered to take ten to one he posted them, which being betted to an immense amount, and the captain called upon to declar...

ASCOT-HEATH RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 15 November 1845

SASCOT-HEATH RACES. cThe races terminated shortly after5 'clock, and there ensued a scene of nfusion that we have seldom seen rpaseed on a Derby-day ; it was ag avated in no small degree by the suds of dust that completely encircled *iP course and rendered driving, sans ccident, a task requiring more than rdinary skill and carefulness. Seve al collisions took place, and pannels at of number were smashed. Ten or welve horses died in the immediate /icini'y of the Heath, and many others sere beaten to a stand still before they reached Windsor. On the whole, however, the " Cup-day" of 1845, in all the attributes of racing greatness, may firly invite comparison with any if its predecessors.

ENGLISH NEWS; The Thomas Lowry, post-offlee packet-ship, arrived in Sydney on the 4th instant, having left London on the 6th July. The following impor tant "items of intelligence, which have not yet been publislihd in this district are from the Sydney He raid. The postscript to the.Colonial Ga zette of the 28th June says, " In the Commons, last. night, Mr G. W. .Hope, in answer to a question from Mr Francis Scott, said, that he was not yet prepared to state the pro visions of a measure contemplated by the Ministers, relative to the occu pation of unsold lands in New South Wales. It would have been sooner produced, but that the noble Lord at the head of the colonial department had been in comunnication with various persons in this country on tihe subject." From this there is littln doubt that a Bill to authorise the issue of leases to the licensed graziers has been introduced. The Morning' Post's report is rather different, " Mr Scott said, that lhe wished to put a question to the Un...
