THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, JUNE 3, 1848. DISTRICT COUNCILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 3 June 1848

<-: : . .THE, {ñ o v 11 o n 13 a i» Couna.1 SATURDAY, JUNE 3, 1848. DISTRICT COUNCILS. ¡NOTIUNC, peihaps, shews in an equally .forcible manner the state of ignorance prevalent in the mother country in. regard to the local peculiarities of 'this colony, than the attempt, apparently seriously en- tertained, of the ¡Secretary of State to establish District Councils in the thinly inhabited interior of New South Wales. It is not so much that the principle of .these institutions is to be objected to,, .-when a proper state of society invites their establishment, and when their powers are confined-as they manifestly ought to be confined-to the regulation of local in- terests ; but it is because the very attempt to establish such corporate bodies in a colony situated like that of New South .Wales .betrays such a lamentable igno- rance of her real position that w e cannot but entertain setious fears for her pros- perity so long as her destinies are placed in the irresponsible powe...

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 3 June 1848

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. SIR,'-In the report of the Races in your last number, Mr. Haly's horse Zebaa is stated to have appeared unable to carry the weight for the Welter Stakes. As one of the stewards, I think it only fair,to Mr, Haly to point out the mistake your reporter has made, for Zebaa not only ran a,good thiid-being within a couple of lengths of the winning 'horse-but made up in a surprising manner for ground lost by his making a bad start ; aed for a four year old, carrying 12 stone 2]r miles, his pei formance in that race shows that the Arab bred horses bid fair to equal any in the colony. I am, Sir, Your obedient servant. P. LESLIE. June 1st, 1818. [Our correspondent will find that the subject of, liis communication has been noticed in another part of this journal.-Ei>. M. B.C.]

THE LONGEST D\Y-The day on which you are locked up in a spunging-house, expecting a remittance that will set you free the next morn- ing ;-or the day before your wedding.-Ibid.

A charge of 10s. per quarter for medicine, telte us the interesting fact that a child of eight years of age may consume 120 peny worth of salts in twelve weeks, which gives exactly ten ounces per week, or a fi action less than an ounce and a half per day, to the unfortunate infant.

BRITISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 3 June 1848

BRITISH EXTRACTS. MAXIMS ON MONEY.-The art of living easily as to money is to pitch your scale of living one degree below your means. Comfort and enjoy- ment arc more dependent upon easiness in the detail of expenditure than upon one degree's dif- ference in the scale. Guard against false associa- tions of pleasure with expenditure - the notion that because pleasure can be purchased with money, therefore money cannot be spent without' enjoyment. What a thing costs a man is no true measure of what it is worth to him ; and yet bott' often is his appreciation governed by no other standard, as if lhere was a pleasure in expenditure per se. Let yourself feel a want before you pro- vide against it. You ave more assured that it is a real want ; and it is worth'while to feel it a little in or«h*r to feel the relief from it. When you are undecided as to which of two courses you would like best, choose the cheapest. This rule will not only save money, but save also a goud deal of ti ¡lung ind...

BRITISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 3 June 1848

BRITISH EXTRACTS. We had been given to understand that the Duke of Wellington had determined, with his usual good sense and military justice, that the " rotation system," as it is called, should be fairly and fully carried out. For the non-military we will explain that the " rotation system" means, that regiments should relieve one another in " rotation" in all quarters of the globe, regu- larly and without favour or distinction. We had hoped a»d Unsted this was the case.

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 3 June 1848

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE.     EDUCATION.     iT.mav/notbe generally known that some time ago a Board of Commissioners was appointed to intro dtrerJnto the colony a .system of education, which' hasTeceived the name of the National Sys- tem.' ¡This is the same system which at home is known indifferently by the name of the Irish and Lord Stanley's. . It was proposed during the last session of,the Legislative Council to introduce it in'preference to the denominational system now jn use, but the intention was postponed on account of the opposition the proposal met with. Arrange- ments are now, however, being made to prove its ¿..wits, and so soon as these are completed, it will be introduced, not as superseding the system now in use, but as auxiliary to it. In the meantime.it had been found necessary to apply'to the Council for an Act to incorporate the Board ; and a mea- sure for that purpose has, in all probability, before this period be...

THE Moreton Bay Courier SATURDAY, JUNE 10, 1848. SUMMARY OF NEWS—DOMESTIC AND FOREIGN. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 10 June 1848

THE             Moreton Bay Courier.           SATURDAY, JUNE 10, 1848. SUMMARY OF NEWS-DOMESTIC AND FOREIGN. BY the Tamar we have received files of papers from the colonies more immediately adjacent, as well as from the Cape of Good Hope and New Zealand. The dates from Sydney are to the 30th ult. inclusiye.   Sir Maurice O'Connell, so long honor- ably connected with the colony, died at Sydney on the 25th ultimo, deeply re- gretted by all parties and all classes, more particularly by the military so long under his command, for whom he had always evinced a degree of consideration and kind heartedness, that gained him the entire confidence and esteem of the private soldier. The Home Bush races took place on the 24th, 25th, and 26th ultimo, and seem to have passed off tolerably well. A terrible accident occurred on the evening of' t...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 10 June 1848

VARIETIES. MINOR MORALS FOR MARRIED PEOPLE. - Married people should study each other's weak points, as skaters look out for the weak parts of the ice, in order to keep off them. Ladies who   marry for love should remember that the union of angels with women has been forbidden since the flood. The wife is the sun of the social system Unless, she attracts, there is nothing to keep heavy bodies, like husbands, from flying off into space. Wives, be lenient to the marital cigar. The smoke always hides the most disagreeable part of the battle. The wife who would properly discharge her duties must never have a soul "above buttons." The liberties of England have been won by mutual concessions. Let the husband, who would acquire the privilege of asking friends to dinner without notice, remember this when his wife hints at a new bonnet. The wife's want is the husband's oppor- unity. Notwithstanding the assertion of mathe- maticians, the marriage ring is a circle which husband and...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. ARRIVAL OF THE BISHOP OF NEWCASTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 10 June 1848

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE.   ARRIVAL OF THE BISHOP OF NEW-   CASTLE.   ON Saturday last the Right Reverend Dr. William Tyrrel, Lord Bishop of Newcastle, arrived in the steamer Tamar on a visit to this remote part of his extensive diocese. The steamer reached the Government Wharf, North Brisbane, at about half past two o'clock, P.M., and immediately after   she had been secured his Lordship disembarked,   and was conducted by Captain Wickham to the Government Cottage. A considerable number of the inhabitants assembled at the Wharf to receive and welcome the Bishop, but there can be no doubt that the assemblage would have been far more numerous had the certainty of his arrival been more generally known ; but as on a former occasion his visit had been prematurely announced, this fact had given rise to doubts in the minds of people generally as to the precise period of his arrival. His Lordship was received with be- coming res...
