THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, MAY 13, 1848. SUMMARY OF NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 May 1848

j% o r r t o n THE . Courier. SATURDAY, MAY 13, 1848. SUMMARY OF NEWS. Bv the Tamar we have received Sydney papers to the 2nd instant, inclusive, but they are more than usually barren of in- telligence, the only thing of any interest they contain being repot ts of the proceed- ings of the Legislative Council, a brief epitome of which we have given as usual in a domestic paragraph. The ship Jane Catherine, with the English mail for December, had arrived at Sydney, but later news had been received in the colony than that of which she is the bearer. The barques Sydney and Euphrates had also arrived from England. We are a good deal thrown out in our estimate of Sydney news from the incom- pleteness of our files, nearly a whole Week's papers, namely, those intervening between the 18th and the 24th ultimo, being wanting. We suppose the missing journals are on board the Ann Mary, but in'the meantime the hiatus has occasioned us no little inconvenience. From South Australia the dates are to...

ROAD TRUSTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 May 1848

ROAD TRUSTS. SOME recent proceedings in the Legislative Council with reference to the improve- ment of. the New and Old South Head Roads in the vicinity of Sydney, seem to invite an inquiry whether the principle therein laid down, though intended to be thus miserably confined in its application, might not be extended to all the principal thoroughfares throughout the colony. During the last session of the Council, Mr. Wentworth introduced a Bill for the purpose of placing the roads of the colony under trustees, with power to levy tolls for the purpose of keeping them in repair, and the principal reason why this Bill was not proceeded with was, if we rightly remember, an objection on the part of the Government that it interfered with the provisions of the Act instituting District Councils. The very fact, however, that the Colo- nial Secretary has this session brought in a Bill containing similar provisions, the only material difference between the two measures being that the present i...

A PUBLIC meeting of the inhabitants was held íñ the Court House, North Brisbane, on Thursday last, at noon, according toadvert'sement, for the < purpose of taking into consideration a proposal, made by the Government for establishing tan Hospital in the district. ' * i ,> On the motion of Mr. A. S. LYON, seconded by r' Dr. BALLOW, Captain Wickham was called to thw -. chair. The CH\IKM\N explained the objects for which1 \ the meeting had assembled. No one could doubt, he said, that the establishment of an Hospital in the district would be of the most signal benefit to the public generally, and, aware of this fact, ap- plication had been made to the Government, when the removal of convicts rendered it necessary that the former establishment should cease, that the building used for the purpose, with all the medi- cines, stores, instruments, &c, should be handed over by the Government for the use of the district.

BRITISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 May 1848

BRITISH EXTRACTS. UNITED STATES.-The New York packet-ship Ashburton arrived at Liverpool on Thursday, having sailed from New York on the 8th instant. 'She brings copies of. the President's <Message, which was delivered to Congress at Washington on the 7th instant. There is nothing particularly striking in the message, which is, as usual, very lengthy. A large portion is taken up by the dis- cussion of the abortive négociations with Mexico through Mr. Trist, and a summary of the inci- dents and pi ogress of the successful campaign, that has been carried on against that country since ; in the course of which due honour is paid to the bravery and courage of the American army. He recommends that the United States should re- tain their present hold in Mexico, until a Govern- ment is formed who will make peace, granting indemnity fo<' the past, and security for tlie future -that security to embrace New Mexico and Cale fornia at least. He is wholly opposed to either w...

TALLOW, HIDES, & c. To the Editors of the Sydney Morning Herald. London, 31st December, 1847. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 May 1848

TALLOW, HIDES/8«. <.. To the Editors 'of the Sydney Morning Herald. , London, 31st Df>ceinber, 1847. GENTLEMEN-The shipment of hides and tallow ree'eivtd from New Soutli Wales into England this year have exceeded those of last. Of hides the increase is 7993, and of tallow 1300 casks. ¡The import pf Mimosa bark has been much less than in former .years. At the close of lust December the prospects for hides were unfavourable, and we an; glad tiiat our friends have had a very small portion of the ship- ments .this year. No instance can be recoided when Austialian1 hides left such continuous and heavy losses as during' the past year ; from January last up to the time we write, we believe there has not been .a single instance in which a loss has not been sustained and taking the whole of the shipments of the year, the average loss cannot he less than 40 to 50 per cent. ¡The sterling value of the total imports of hides, tallow, and bark, received this yeal into London and Liv...

WARWICK. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 May 1848

WARWICK. (From our Correspondent. ) May 2, 1848.-At the Police-office, Warwick, a man named William Meara was brought up on a charge of violence towards the inmates of the Woolpack Inn, Cunningham's Gap, by " bailing them up" with a knife and demanding some pow- der and shot from them. It appeared that the   man had been labouring under the effects of liquor, and was instable of what he was doing, he bear- ing the character of au inoffensive person by those who have known him for some years; however, he had produced a false discharge to Mr. Alpin, from whom he obtained employment as a weekly servant, for which the, Bench sentenced him to be imprisoned, with hard labour, for three months in Sydney Gaol for breach of a clause of the Master and Servants' Act.

IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 May 1848

IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent) "WEDNESDAY, MAY 10.-Our town, or as some of our friends are pleased to term it " remote village," is at present rather dull, save and except amongst the builders, who, like a busy swarm of bees, are, "I calculate, going a-head tarnation slick." A   capacious building is being erected by the " King of Ipswich" immediately opposite the Caledonian Hotel, and in the vicinity of the steamer's wharf ; it is intended for an hotel, and is, I believe, to be designated the " Prince Albert's Head." In due time, we may, no doubt, expect the " Prince of Wales," and all the rest of the royal family. Thus our worthy townsman in strolling along, inhaling the flavour of his fragrant Manilla cigar, after leaving the " Queen's Arms,", which he also com- mands, examines the state of the " Prince Albert's Head," with which, as a phrenologist, being satis- fied as to its bumps-contents, I mean-can enjoy his otium cum dignitate amongst the small fry. &amp...
