Domestic Intelligence. A TAHITIAN AMONGST THE ABORIGINES. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 9 October 1846

Domestic Intelligence. A TAHITIAN AMONGST THE ABORIGINES. "On Sunday last, Mr. Burnett, the surveyor, returned from the Bay, where he has been lately engaged in marking the channel at the Northern   Entrance, bringing with him a native of Otaheite, named George Moy who, for many months past, has been living with a tribe of blacks inhabiting the coast near Bribie's Island. It appears that the blacks when they discovered the surveying   party, came, and stated that there was a white man amongst them. Mr. Burnett, on hearing this, landed and, after walking a short distance along the beach saw the Tahitian, with a portion of the tribe. Being a stout, tall, athletic man,   Moy, we are told, seemed a giant to the pigmies around him. Moy states that about fourteen months ago he was a headsman on board the   Nimrod, whaler, belonging to Messrs. Lamb and Parbury, of Sydney. The vessel was then cruis- nig, at about sixty miles from Moreton B...
