CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 April 1848

CHINA. Oca news from China extends to the ead of January. Governor Davis was said to be determined to read the inhabitants of Canton a severe lesson. He bad sent for troops to Singapore and Pinang, from which places detachments had been des- patched, and a force of twelve men-of-war (five of them steamers) had assembled at Hongkong, which it was expected would be increased as soon as news of the disturbance reached the Admiral, Who had sailed;for Madras. The Consul at Canton had given notice that he was in hourly expectation of orders to proceed to Hongkong, and that upon his withdrawal the Government could not undertake to protect British subjects.-tfydney Morning Herald,

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. DREADFUL SUFFERING ON BOARD EMIGRANT SHIPS FROM IRELAND. (From Bell's Messenger, November 22.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 April 1848

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. DREADFUL SUFFERING ON BOARD EMIGRANT SHIPS FROM IRELAND. (From Bell's Messenger, November 22.)   EXTRACT from a letter just received from St. John's (New Brunswick): You probably have learned, ere this, part of the dreadful story of the ship Avon, Nicholas Johnson, master of 1100 tons register, with about 500 pas- sengers, which vessel arrived disabled at Miramichi. No fiction (for it would require a perverted or distorted mind to give birth to so horrific a tale) could portray the frightful scenes that occurred on board of that ill-fated vessel, or relate the extent of misery and suffering which were borne by most of the passengers in listless and mournful despair, and by others, including the captain, with a for- titude bordering on the most romantic heroism. Already, at the outset, the vessel's doom seemed sealed, for encountering heavy weather, she lost several spars, and suffered in her rigging, which retarded her progress during t...

A MEETING of the inhabitants of Drayton, Darling Downs, was held at the Downs Inn, on Thursday, the 7th instant, for-the purpose of taking into consideration the present position, and future prospects; of the holders of property in the pro- jected township.

INDIAN LABOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 April 1848

INDIAN LABOUR. . THE following communication, in reply to the memorial forwarded to his Excellency the Governor by the Indian Labour As- sociation of Moreton Bay, requesting his .Excellency's interposition to facilitate the removal of the restrictions regarding the introduction of Indian labouters into the district, was forwarded to us by the last steamer. It will be seen that the question is shelved for the present. From private sources, however, we learn that a petition to the Right Honourable the Secretary of State, and also another to the Legislative Council of this colony, having for their object the removal of the restriction, is in course of preparation in Sydney. It is possible that a ship will be shortly dispatched to China, where labour of a good description seems to be more readily procurable: Colonial Secretary's Office, ' '"t .' .

Owing to the distress generally prevailing throughout the country, and the numbers unem- ployed in the manufacturing districts, the falling off in consumption continues, notwithstanding the low prices ruling for most articles. Under those circumstances, the business which has been trans- acted in the produce market since our last has not been of an extensive kind. Prices, however, do not show much variation, though in particular instances a decline may be noticed, and it is, moreover, generally beli...

BRITISH EXTRACTS. PROSPECTS OF AUSTRALIA AND INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 29 April 1848

BRITISH EXTRACTS. >PROSrECTS OF AUSTRALIA AND INDIA. " WE extract ¡the following from an interesting ¡paper in the November number of Blackwood, «on the navigation of the antipodes : Australia has an importance in the eyes of 'England superior perhaps to all her other colonies. The climate* is obviously more fitted for the Eng Jish frame than that of Canada or the West Indies. The English1 settler alone is master of the mighty -continent of New Holland ; for the natives are tfew', ' -savage, and rapidly diminishing. The Englishman may range over a territory of 2000 i miles long by 1700 broad, without meeting the subject of any other sovereign, or hearing any .other language than his.own. The air is tem« ,perate, though so near the equator, and the soil, though often unfertile, is admirably adapted to the >rearing of sheep and cattle. The adjoining islands -oflfeY the finest opportunities for the commercial enterprise of the Englishman ; and its directness of navigation to Indi...

EMIGRATION TO AUSTRALIA. DEPUTATION TO THE COLONIAL SECRETARY. (From the Observer, December 20.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 29 April 1848

EMIGRATION TO AUSTRALIA. DEPUTATION-TO THB COLONIAL SECRETARY. .- ¡iFrom-the Observer, December 20.J ON Saturday, a deputation, consisting of members of Parliament, and others interested in the success of a system of emigration to Australia, had an interview-with Earl Grey at the Colonial Office. ' Sir E. Macnaughtcn opened the business by stating that on the previous Saturday a meeting of noblemen and gentlemen favourable to a plan of colonisation had been held in London, when certain resolutions, affirming the suitableness of Australia as a field for emigration, were agreed to. Having read the resolutions, the right lion. Baronet cursorily dwelt on their contents, and endeavoured to show that the adoption of such a plan as the one suggested would result most ad- vantageously, as well to the emigrants, the land- owners in Australia, and the people of the Britiah empire in general. A conversation, which lasted upwards of anhour, ensued between the noble Earl and the deputation, the ...

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, APRIL 29, 1848. GENERAL SUMMARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 29 April 1848

TIIK ¿Moreton 33 a » Courier. SATURDAY, APRIL 29, ISÍ8. GENERAL SUMMARY. THE Tamar has brought Sydney papers to the 18th instant, but they contain no local news of any great importance. A large portion of the metropolitan Press is devoted to theological discussions, which seem to be carried on with unjustifiable bitterness on both sides. The discussions in the Legislative Council had*excited a good deal of atten- tion. The Council was using great dispatch in disposing of <- the'> business brought before it, a good deal of which was rather of an intetesting character, particularly the discussion on exilism. A brief abstract of the proceedings will be found in a domestic paragraph. The latest English news had reached Sydney via Calcutta and Hobart Town, and is to so late a date as the 7th January. An extract, containing the most impoitant items, will be found in our fourth page. It will be seen with pleasure that com- mercial matters had at last taken a turn for the bett...

BOILING DOWN. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 29 April 1848

BOILING DOWN. VARIOUS circumstances have this season combined to render the settlers more'than usually anxious to have recourse to the boiling down of their stock into tallow.1 The principal of these circumstances are the impossibility of procuring adequate labour to attend on the increase of their flocks and herd;:,- the steady price which »tallow seems to command, in the London market, compared to wool, and the pecu- liarly favourable character of the season, whjeh'^vjer^readin^the^rnns with ver- dure, Jjas caused stock .of^jalKdescriptions ,$Di atfMnia'more tharf'usualisuperiority of ¡ciJndiljidri'.V/ Butr%artrJfrom all these 'rearons, iffcs%Ú6j*úo{dií)übftvi\e that the lease/certáfñt}^' açdVràpidïty^with which cattle-and'rslíeep'may\by .this means be converted into an article possessing an immediate marketable value, will almost under any circumstances cause it to be more and more resorted to in every suc- ceeding year.

LATEST FROM AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 29 April 1848

LATEST FROM AMERICA. LIVERPOOL, THURSDAY, DECEMBES lu, 8£ P.M. -The mail steamer Acadia, Captain Shannon, has just arrived, but as she did not leave the port of Halifax until the 5th instant, her passage is considered a fine one for the season, being a run of eleven days. The main point of present in- terest is the continued,, flow of specie towards this country. The Acadia brings 80,000 sovereigns ; the packet ship Hottinguer arrived to-day, with about 30,000 sovereigns ; and the Roscius, now on her voyage, has also 20,000 sovereigns on board. Exchange ruled high ; 10 to 12¿ was the current rate foi* prime bills, and none others could be disposal of in the market. In the absence of any later news from Europe, the market for bread stuffs and cotton had not been influenced to much extent, either above or below previous rates. The colder state of the weather, and the probably early closing of the navigation by frost, had created a great degree of firmness among the holders of flour an...
