NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 15 November 1845
NEW ZEALAND'. WYe have been favoured by a ~ier cantile friend with the perusal of the copy of a very extraordinary letter sent by Heki to Governor Fitzroy. It commences with reminding him how many lives Heki saved at the attack of his pah, when the attempts of the soldiers to enter the trenolhes exposed them to certain death by Hoki's people, who said to the men in English--" Go back, go back; we do not want to kill you." Heki tells Governor Fitzroy that he has two thousand well-armed men under his command, and that he knows the Governor has not a quarter that number . he considers it would be cowardly to attack him; but that if the Governor will fix any number "upon his honor," and come out with him into the open field, he will bring exactly the same number, and no more, ' upon his (IHeki'sy honor/ and fight it out; and whoever runs away shall submit to whatever terms of peace the conqueror shall pre scribe. He complains of the ill treatment by the British settlers, which induced o...

THE MINERAL KINGDOM No. II. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 19 November 1845
THE MINERAL KINGDOM. No. II. Coal consists of bitumen and wood, in the state of charcoal, and it is the ligneous part which soils the hands. The vegetable origin is no longer matter of dispute. Minute grasses, and even trees, are found in adjoin ing stony strata, and much coal is still half wood, with all its fibres. Besides, sea-shells and marine-plants are found in the incumbent strata, and trees which withstood the inun dation are often discovered in an up right position. The patches of coal strata are evidently localities of woods, such as those in America, growing and falling for ages. Newcastle obtained the first char ter to dig Coals in t239, and in 1281 the export was considerable. In 1825, the produce was three millions of tons, and it employed 70,000 per sons, with a capital of two or three millions. The coal-fields of England run from the Tay to Bristol, in length 300 miles, and from 20 to 120 broad. They lie in the floetz or new se condary rocks, and in the upper series ...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 19 November 1845
VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. SMYSTEItIOUs Dt sTrI.-Yesterday, be. tween the hours of twelve and one, a dense volume of smoke was observed to essue from a cottage in Bathurst street, occupied by Mary Dawes, a widow. On entering the house, the body of the unfortunate woman was discovered in a corner of one of the rooms, in which there was no fire place, literally burnt to a cinder. It was a spectacle, to those who beheld it, to shake the strongest nerves, andl create a shudder. The woman had not cried out; and how the calamity originated remains a mystery. There was a quantity of burnt shavings of wood around the relics of the de ceased, as if they had been ignited atter the deceased nad lain dpwn upon Tihem. An inquest will be held this day. -Hobart Town Advertiser.

OXFORD CONTROVERSIES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 19 November 1845
OXFORD CONTROVERSIES. [From the Edinburgh Review.] IT iS impossible adequately to describe the various distractions with which the Oxford School has managed to tear the Church and nation in pieces, in his Quixotic search for Catholic unity. Not a few, as we have seen, openly declare for a surrender to Rome, though they are still members of the English Church, and avowedly explain away the Articles to which they have solemnly sworn to assent. By many more, who do not go quite so far, we find the more pernicious parts of the Romish System eagerly in sisted upon-for example, clerical celi bacy, monastic institutions, and the practice of a paltry asceticism. A still greater number are busy in introducing superstitious innovations into public worship, which fully proclaim the Armanist tendency of the system. There are many whose consciences are so tender, that they must act in compliance with every obselete rubric; and yet so accommodating, that they can approve of all the latitude of Tr...

SUPREME COURT.-(CIaowN SIDE) MONDAY, NovI:IMBEI 17TI1, 1845. The Queen v. Koort Kirrup.-I-Iis Honor said, he had communicated with the Sydney Judg.es and the fol. lowing was the reply, which he would read, that the matter might be laid fully open, both as regarded the ad. ministration of justice and the public at large : " VE have considered this case, and we are all of opinion that the pri soner Koort Kirrup, under the cir. cumstances stated, cannot be tried. A prisoner, found by ajury not to ba of sullicient capacity to understand the nature of the proceedings, or who cannot in any manner be communi cated with, so as to be made to com prehend them, may be remanded for a reasonable time for instruction : and a jury may be again impanelled to enquire a second time (or oftener if need be) of his capacity. But, so long as he continues in the state of Koort Kirrup, we hold that he may not be put on trial. The remedy as to the disposal of persons so circum stanced is with the Legislatur...

JULY WOOL SALES. From the Hobart Town Advertiser: By the kindness of Mr Hunt, him self an extensive wool merchant, we have "received an account df the July Wool Sale on the 14th July.3 They are of the most flattering de scription showing an advance of full two pence per lb. upon,. the. last sales.

The only two lots from this colony by the Mary Flay andTasmania from Launceston. The prices average rather below those from Sydney.

DEATH OF EARL GREY. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 19 November 1845
DEATH OF EARL GREY. The death of this aged peer (as we announced on Saturday) took place on Thursday evening, at the family resi * dence, Howick-hall, Northumberland, where he had been staying for the last few -months with the countess and some of the junior members of the family. Tile venerable nobleman was in his 82d year. Some time since the state of the noble earl's health was such as excited the worst fears of the members of his family, but after a short struggle he rallied, end was once more enabled, though only for a short time, to join the family. His illness, we believe, was owing to an attack of paralysis. He continued in rather an improved state up to the 13th instant, when he again appeared to droop. On Wednesday he grew considerably worse, and his extreme age, coupled with the violence of the attack, dispelled all further hopes *of recovery, and he gradually sank; -bis medical advisers being still in at tendance on him until a late hour on Thursday night, when he expire...
ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 19 November 1845
ENGLAND. It is stated that the King of Holland will shortly pay a visit of two or three week's duration to this country, and will lodge at Mivart's Hotel. Lord Ducie's example farm, at Whitefield, now produces twenty three times as much corn as it did under the former management. The dinner to Mr O'Connell, in Galway, has been fixed for the 28th of July next. The Wexford Repeal demonstration will take place about the same time, On Thursday last two trains came into collision on the Bristol and Birmingham Railway. The engine driver and stokers are much hurt, and forty or fifty passengers are more of less injured. It is said that some cattle-feeders have begun to use molasses for fattening their stock; and, if Porto Rico molasses should be admitted, the supply will be cheap and abundant. The Marquis of Exeter is said to have received £35,000 for withdrawing his oppositions to the branch line of the Midland Railway which is to pass through his property at Stamford.

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 19 November 1845
LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. From the Sydney Herald. THE session of the Council may be said to be at an end. The only mat ter that can occupy many minutes, is the proposed amendment of the Registry Bill. The third reading of the Master and Servants' Bill is a mere matter of form, and the al terations proposed in the Lien on Wool Bill, are in accordance with the wishes of the Council. To-mor row, therefore, would be the last day of the Session, were it not for an awkward mistake committed by the council in sending back to the Governor his Excellency's message on the Wool Bill, under an impres sion that by a clerical error the fifth, instead of the fourth clause had been referred to, whereas the message was correct, his Excellency having had before him the engrossed copy of the Bill as sent to him for the Royal Assent, and the Council a printed copy which had been sub sequently amended. The error having been discovered before the message was transmitted, it was of course not sent; but as it i...
