LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 15 August 1846

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. The Squatters.-A Launceston paper states - -" There is every probability that the squatters' question will be decided by sending s commission of three persons to New South Wales ; a barrister named Chetwode is mentioned as chief commis- sioner." Promiscuous Seizure.-On Saturday last the officers of the Customs seized the following goods, which had been landed from the William, and caused them to be conveyed to the Queen's Stores, on the ground that they were not entered on the ship's manifest, viz. :-4 bags maize, 2 bags po- tatoes, 6 bags bran, 2 bundles leather (the last article was seized in consequence of its being put down as sundries), and 5 cases gin. These goods with the exception of the gin are the produce of this colony. The duty on the whole was demanded and paid. This proceeding on the part of the officers is most vexatious, for they might have known, or if they did not, they ought to have known, that the Captain is allowed a reasonable time to amend ...

MR. CAUDLE'S BREAKFAST TALK. Showing how Mr. Caudle, objected to Mrs. Caudle's female friend, a visitor for a month. " When a husband comes home to what he ex- pects to find a comfortable house, it is a little-I say a little annoying to him-to break his shins, over a heap of portmanteaus in the hall, and find, too, he's saddled with a visitor,-some stupid Miss or the other, with all her boarding-school starch;   about her. Eh, what ? You told me you'd in- vited dear Miss Loveday? You took an ad- vantage of me, then ; and told me when I was asleep. I don't recollect it. And now I shall be stunned to death by her for three months-for of course she plays the piano ; and I shouldn't won- der if she's brought a guitar besides with her. For three precious months ! What ? She's only invited for one month ? Humph ! Then she'll stay three, of course : they always do. " Nice breakfasts I shall have now-for she'll not always stay in her own room ; she won't al- ways be tired trave...

ADDRESS TO SIR CHARLES FITZROY. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 August 1846

ADDRESS TO SIR CHARLES FITZROY. Previous to the departure of Sir Charles Fitzroy from London an address, signed by a large and respectable body of colonists, and others interested in this colony, at present residing in England, was presented to him. His Excellency's answer to the address has not yet appeared. The address, which we give below, alludes to emigration, the price of land, squatting, and steam navigation to this colony : To His Excellency Sir Charles Augustus   Fitzroy, Knight, &c, &c, &c.     Sir,-We, the undersigned, colonists of New   South Wales, at present residing in England, and others interested in the colony, beg respectfully to offer our congratulations to your Excellency, upon your appointment to the government of that im- portant and rising portion of her Majesty's dominions.

"THE GIPPS TESTIMONIAL." To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 August 1846

" THE GIPPS TESTIMONIAL." To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. SIR,-Directly I sees that 'ere modest advertise- ment of our respected Sub-Collector, you may be sure I went the whole hog in the matter-for he was a rum'un the late commanding officer of the colony'; that's a fact. I say, Mr. Editor, only think of some of these here people wishing to persuade us that we didn't like glorious old George. By Goleys, it's a shame. I asked one of these chaps for a subscription t'other day-to stump up for the testimonial, you know. Well, what d'ye think he said. "Why," said he, " if you asked me to give my     mite in aid of the erection of a monumental em- blem of the selfishness, injustice, and caprice of Sir George Gipps, I would cheerfully do so. But such is not required. No. Broken hearts, ruined fortunes, lost energies, the death of hopes, dearest and best, and closest allied to man's ex- istence, the confusion of our social elements, with a long train of ...

In the neighbourhood of Ratcliff-highway and Wap- ping ; nearly every public-house exhibits placards of able seamen wanted for her Majesty's ser- vice;" the names of the various ships being given which require men.-Bell's Messenger, March 16.                     NAVAL PREPARATIONS.-The extraordinary   activity which prevails in all the dock-yards, in overhauling and bringing forward frigates of the heaviest class, is rather ominous, as these are pre- cisely the vessels which will be required in a war, with America: In addition to the 44 and 50 gun frigates already in commission, the following   vessels of the same class are either preparing for commission or undergoing careful examination, namely-the Gloucesie...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 August 1846

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. FOWL (FOUL) STEALING -A correspondent, who dubs himself "A Staunch Kangaroo Pointer,"   complains of the petty robberies which have taken place nightly at Kangaroo Point, during the past week. Some strolling vagabond, it appears, has been purloining the fowls and turkies, belonging to the inhabitants. On Wednesday evening, a very fine turkey cock, and turkey hen, which was laying, were carried away, and have not since been recovered. The high price of poultry in   Brisbane is no doubt a great inducement to needy rogues in committing robberies of this kind ; and it would be as well if the constables kept a strict watch over the itinerant vendors of poultry in the township. An inquiry as to the way in which certain individuals, to whom suspicion is attached, became possessed of the poultry they offer for sale, might be the means of checking "that hereditary   tendency to larcenous abstraction, and, perhaps, restrain their erra...

SCENE AT CROW-STREET THEATRE, DUBLIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 August 1846

SCENE AT CROW-STREET THEATRE,   DUBLIN.   We extract the following racy scene from Bentley's Miscellany :-   When a new Lord and Lady Lieutenant visited the theatre for the first time, Pat's peculiarities became most diverting. " Pat Mooney !" shouts a voice in the gallery. " Halloo !" answers Pat from the opposite side. Voice-" Can you see 'em, Pat ?" (Meaning the Lord and Lady Lieutenant.) Pat Mooney- "I can."   Voice-" Well, what's he like ?" Pat Mooney-" Oh, mighty like a grazier or middleman. Any way, he has got a good long nose of his own." Loud laughter, in which his Lordship joins. Voice-" Is he clever, think you ?" Pat Mooney-I'd be sorry to make him sinse- keeper." (Laughter again.) Voice-" Does he look good-natured ?" Pat Mooney-" Well, he does, and enjoys a joke, too-Heaven bless him !-like a gintleman as   he is."       Voice-"Then we'll not have to send, him back ?" ...

COLONIAL ABSTRACT. Doctor Nixon, Bishop of Tasmania, has pro- ceeded to England on matters connected with his diocese.-The Geelong Immigration Society has forwarded to an agent in Hobart Town (Mr. Perry) instructions to select two hundred men for immediate conveyance to the Port Phillip district. -The remains of the ill-fated vessel Cataraqui, had been sold at auction at Port Phillip, and were purchased by Mr. Ross for £6 ; they consisted of 700 feet of spars, 180 deals, 250 casks, four tons of bar iron, and 16 cwt. of rope.-A match against time had been run at Melbourne by a gelding named Bagman, who was backed for a wager of £10 to run eight miles in 26 minutes ; the dis- tance was accomplished in 22 minutes and 6 se- conds.-A man named Griegg, who had for some time been living, in Melbourne, and carrying on business there as a publican, lately fell under some charge which brought him under the immediate notice of the police, when it turned out that he was a prisoner of the crown ...

THE       MORETON BAY   COURIER.             SATURDAY, AUGUST 22, 1846.   h To the plan of isolation considered as a scheme of moral reform, the first and most obvious objec- tion is, that it has already been tried to some extent at Norfolk Island, and that the result of that experiment is not such as to encourage a renewal of it on a much larger scale. In the state of isolation, there can be no prevail- ing tone of moral sentiment, but such as is the spontaneous growth of a convict society. It will be destitute of those opinions and of those feelings which must be, more or less, engen- dered by the close vicinity of a population by   whom personaL morality, and the virtues of public and domestic life, are respected and cul-   tivated. Few men are so abandoned as to be   entirely proof against the health...
