IMPORTANT INDIAN NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 20 June 1846

IMPORTANT INDIAN NEWS. Two great battles have been fought in India since our last accounts. After the battles of Moodkee and Ferozeshur, in December, the Sikhs   contrived to detach a force and attack and destroy the great military station of Loodihana, in which they were completely successful, as they plundered the station and then set it on fire. Major-General Sir Harry Smith was sent with six thousand men to save Loodihana, but was too late ; but on the 20th January he came up with the enemy, com- puted at thirty thousand strong, and after a smart engagement, completely routed them. Our loss was four hundred killed and wounded, including among the former an officer well known here, Captain Grimes, H. M. 50th foot. This engage-   ment is called the battle of Aliwal. On the 11th February there was a general engagement between the Sikhs and the British, in which we gained a glorious victory. The loss, however, was very heavy, particularly in officers of hig...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 20 June 1846

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE "EXPERIMENT."-This steamer started from North Brisbane, on her experimental trip to Ipswich, on Wednesday morning last. Mr. Pearce, the owner, and a select party on board, were warmly greeted as they passed up the river, by a large concourse of spectators, who had as- sembled to witness her departure. Owing to the imperfect knowledge of the person acting as pilot, respecting the river flats, she got aground near the crossing place at Woogoroo, and was detained until daylight the following morning, when she proceeded on her voyage, and reached her destina- tion at one o'clock. The Ipswich folks were quite delighted at her appearance amongst them, and expressed their satisfaction by giving a hearty reception to Mr. Pearce and all on board. Since the advertisement, which appears in our first page, was in type, we have learned that the charge for freight of goods is fixed at six shillings, instead of seven shillings and sixpence ; and, also, that she will not com...

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, JUNE 20, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 20 June 1846

THE Moreton Bay Courier.                 SATURDAY, JUNE 20, 1846. THE COURIER has been established in compliance with the almost unanimous wish of every resident, of character, pro- perty, and intelligence, in this extensive district. The unfounded impressions that prevail elsewhere respecting the climate, capabilities, and resources, of this portion of the colony, and the absence of those beneficial moral influences which have their origin in the Press, have long ren- dered a local journal necessary. The commercial importance of the com- munity, indeed, demands its introduc- tion. Churches, schools, stores, shops, inns, dwelling-houses, and erections     for various purposes, have rapidly risen ; settlements have become villages ; villages, towns. Our staple articles of export, wool and tallow, have strikingly increased ; and with their increase, fresh i...

COLONIAL ABSTRACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 27 June 1846

COLON I AL ABSTRACT.   Mr. Tyers, the Commissioner for Gipps' Land, having examined the coast about Cape Howe, and made a survey of the Island of Gabo, which is at the extreme end of the Cape, has recom- mended that a lighthouse should be erected on that island.—The action of libel brought by Mr. R. Cooper, senior, against Mr. Welch, the proprietor of the Atlas newspaper, was tried on Saturday the 30th ultimo. The damages were laid at £1000. The result was in favour of the defendant. Mr. Welch was not, however, equally successful in a similar action brought by Mr. Laughton, acting head master of Sydney College, who obtained forty shillings damages, which amount will carry costs. —The population of Western Australia although represented at 5000, does not exceed 3500. It has a little commerce with the Isle of France, to which place it exports live stock and provisions. Its pastoral resources are extremely confined, for the reason that the squatters of the neighbouring col...

ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 27 June 1846

E N G L A N D. THE Premier, in addressing the House of Com- mons, in support of the changed policy of   Ministers, said - " He did not wish to deprive those of any credit who were the first to contend against protective duties, but his own opinions had been modified by the results of the returns in -all those instances in which the protective duties had been relaxed. He had closely watched the operation of those duties during the last four or five years, and he was now convinced that the ar- guments in favour of their maintenance were no longer tenable (cheers from the Opposition benches). He was convinced that low wages were not the result of low prices of food, and he was further convinced that the evils of a large debt and of high taxation did not render high protective duties requisite. On the contrary, the experience of three years of abundance and cheap- ness proved that they were rather an alleviation, than otherwise, of the evil. For three years pre- ceding, tha...

Her future trips will be made on alternate days in each week, commencing on Monday next.

ABORIGINAL MISSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 27 June 1846

ABORIGINAL MISSIONS.   THE Missions for spiritually enlightening the Blacks, and ameliorating their wretched condition, two of which were for some years existent in this district, are now both at an end. The Roman Catholic establishment at Dunwich is broken up ; and the missionaries, the Rev. Messrs. Snell, Lewis, and Morris, left for Sydney by the William, on Thursday, en route to the Sandwich Islands. We hope that their new labours may be blessed with somewhat better results. Our readers are, perhaps, aware that the Ger- man Mission is also abandoned. Sir George Gipps, we think wisely, finding its utter useless- ness, has discontinued the assistance which it formerly received from the public revenue. The German missionaries, phlegmatic and philosophi- cal, have become the German graziers and market- gardeners. Located on the rich land of Eagle Farm, commanding an extensive back run, paying neither license nor assessment, it may be gratify- ing to their friends at a di...

AUSTRALIAN AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. (From the Colonial Gazette, Jan.24.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 27 June 1846

AUSTRALIAN AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. (From the Colonial Gazette, Jan.24) The directors of this company held their annual court on Tuesday afternoon, at their offices in King's Arms-yard, Moorgate-street, to lay before the proprietors a statement of the result of their operations during the past year. The Chairman, J. S. Brownrigg, Esq., M.P., read the report, which, at the outset, congratulated the proprietors upon the general improvement of the colonies, and the favourable prospects they held out. There had, however, during the past year, been no improvement in the sale of live stock, and a further diminution in the demand for coals had taken place ; yet, by the economy used in the company's operations for the year, 1844, there was a considerable increase in the balance of re- ceipts over disbursements, as compared with the three preceding years. The herds and flocks be- longing to the company were in good condition, though many had been lost and injured by casual- ties and unavoidable...

No more shall then be heard the slave's deep moan, Nor man man's inhumanity deplore ; All strife shall cease, and war shall be unknown, And the world's golden age ret...

PORTABLE SOUP. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 27 June 1846

PORTABLE SOUP. The portable soup made at the boiling-down establishments, is beginning to attract notice in England : it is an article intrinsically good, and only requires to be known to be in demand. In a London paper of December, the following para- graph appeared : " Recent arrivals of ships from Australia have introduced a new article of food into the London market. It is a kind of concentrated gravy, the result of the boiling of sheep and cattle for the supply of the English tallow market, and which has hitherto been of little or no value. It is im- ported in a good state of preservation, and on the addition of a few condiments, makes a very pala- table soup. It is contained in tin canisters, of about three pounds weight, which have found ready purchasers at 3s. each. The import duty   as a manufactured article is an ad valorem one of twenty per cent." Early in December, the Duke of Norfolk, at an agricultural meeting in Sussex, recommended the poor to put a "pinc...

JERRY'S PLAINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 27 June 1846

JERRY'S PLAINS. A MURDER.-On Tuesday evening a step-son of Mr. Harpur, the postmaster, who had been in the bush looking for cattle, brought home a quan- tity of human bones, which he had discovered in a gully about three or four miles from Jerry's Plains. As they were evidently the remains of a human being, and the youth stated there were more of a similar kind, half reduced to ashes amongst the embers of a fire that had been made in the same place, together with burnt portions of clothing (a specimen of which he had also brought with him) Mr. Harpur gave notice to the sergeant of the Mounted Police, and this morning, in com- pany with that gentleman, Mr. Donnelly, and the boy, started to make an examination of the place described. Between three and four miles from Jerry's Plains, in a gully leading from Red-bank Creek, and within a short distance of Mr. Hale's fence, they at length succeeded in finding the place, where, from what presented itself to their inspection, there can be n...
