COLONIAL EXTRACTS. WINDSOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 1 July 1848

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. WINDSOR. A BUSHRANGER CAPTURED.-On Monday last, the 22th May, as constable Seymour, who is sta- tioned at Vinegar Hill, was walking on the Windsor Road, a short way from the watch-house, he came up with a man who he thought he knew, and accosted him by a familiar name: but the fellow, not just liking any intimacy with the con stable, made his way into the bush, which excited the suspicions of Seymour ; and made him give chase ;- however, after an hour's fruitless search, Seymour returned to the watch-house,and arming himself with a brace of pistols, set out in pursuit,   taking the bush at the back of Vinegar and Box Hills, then turning on to the road, he enquired from two draymen who were coming with their teams from Windsor, if they had passed a man on the road, answering the description Seymour gave, and getting an answer in the affirmative he in- creased his pace, and overtook the ruffian just as he was crossing Howe's bridge at the Toll-bar.

THE RECENT EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 8 July 1848

THE RECENT EVENTS. INTELLIGENCE of the movement in France has created the most lively interest in the surrounding couutries. In Belgium there is a mixed feeling joy at the advance of liberalism, jealousy of na- tional independence. An attempt at disturbance was made at Brussels on Sunday ; but it was easily quelled. Commercial and conservative Holland received the news with fevered uneasiness, al- most " punie." Prussia remembers the old claim of France to the Rhenish boundary, and the Cologne Gazette puts forth a spirited manifesto in favour of Prussian indepen- dence ! " Our first and holiest duty," says the writer, " is to lay down our lives and our pro- perties in defence of our country." Switzerland hastens to acknowledge (and has since imitated) a sister republic. From Italy we have no accounts as to the arrival of the French news ; but the Austrian provinces were in a state to receive it with little equanimity-a smarting under newly proclaimed martial law. The Princes of the ...

A RESIDENT JUDGE AT MORETON BAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 8 July 1848

A RESIDENT JU,DGE AT MORETON BAY. IN the Sydney Morning Herald of the 20th ultimo,, there is an article of con- siderable length, the substance of which is the great hardship, trouble, and expense which the inhabitants of this district aie compelled to undergo, whether as suitors or witnesses, in attending a tribunal so distant as the Supreme Court of Sydney. To most of the statements contained in the article referred to, we cannot possibly i have any objection, for they are such as we have over and over again advanced and urged upon the consideration of the Government. The «ant of a local legal establishment for the trial of all causes at present only cognizable by the Supreme Court, was experienced here from the very commencement of the settlement ; and it is now, only more urgently felt because the'advancement of the district in popu- lation and wealth is becoming mote rapid and apparent. The grievance even from the first opening of the place to coloniza- tion, has been so great ...

PUBLIC LANDS FOR RAILWAY PURPOSES. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 8 July 1848

PUBLIC LANDS FOR RAILWAY PUR- POSES. NOTHING is more repugnant to bur feelings in our editoiial capacity than to be com- pelled so frequently to use the language of remonstrance and complaint. It would be far more pleasing to us that all official personages, great or small, whose actions necessarily .become the subject of public comment, should so moderately, wisely, and liberally discharge the duties of their several stations as to enable us to award to them nothing but unalloyed commen- dation and praise.' But^since we cannot truly impute impeccability to those en- dowed with exalted official rank any more "than to the vulgar herd of mankind, we are more particularly called upon to notice with severity any departure from the paths of honour, rectitude, and justice, made by the former, because from the responsibili- ties of their position their errols are pro- ductive of .far more extenshe and abiding evil. Our present ground of complaint is the inexplicable conduct of the British ...

There was only a few hun- dreds of men, women, and lads'present','and their object . appears to have been merely to vent their indignation against the Board of Guardians for giving employment to diS'erent branches of trade for less wages' than those usually paid. After hooting and creating some 'excitement in the neighbourhood they were'dispersed by the police, without difficulty.

THE STORMING OF THE TUILERIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 8 July 1848

THE STORMING OF THE TUILERIES. TUE following is the best version that has hitherto appeared of the storming of tlie Tuileries. We take it from tlie Reforme ..- i Diffèrent versions of the taking of the Tuileries have been given. The event seems to us of such importance as to have caused us to seek to know the details. We give them, as, exact and as cir- cumstantial as possible. The 5th, legion of the National Guard, having its major, its lieutenant colonel, two chiefs of battalions, i and several officers at its head, marched on tlie Tuileries. It had arrived afr tlie RUP de l'Echelle, -when firing was heard on^the'Place du Palais Royali' 'It was the post of the Chateau d'Eait which recommenced the combat. At' the'same instant the legion has- tened to.tlie place where the firing took place', and with it the thousands' of combatants who followed it. 'At this moment Marshal Gerard appeared with a branch of verdure'in his hand enjoining the combatants to cease firing. The post of the C...

UNSETTLED STATE OF EUROPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 8 July 1848

UNSETTLED STATE OF EUROPE. LONDON, MARCH lO.-r-The Carlists and Orlean ists are canvassing for support in Paris. There is a general revolutionary movement in Germany. Neufchatel, in Switzerland has chosen a Pro- visional Government. The Poles are preparing for a gener.il rising. Bavaria is said to be in revolt. Baden has de- manded a republican form of Government. Prussian armies have moved towards the Rhine. The funeral of the revolutionary victims in Paris was attended by half a million of people. Four hundred lives are said to have been lost at Troyes. A deputation of the populace waited on the Pro- visional Government, and insisted that all English railway labourers lately working on the Rouen, the Tours and Bordeaux, and the Great Northern Lines, should be discharged, and there were as many as four thousand in Paris scarcely able to obtain a morsel of food. The King of Prussia has ordered three armies of observation to the frontiers, by railway. They have already reached the ne...

Tlie Patria of the 10th instant gives these details :-" For* some ¡time the provocations of the Austrian soldiery-had become so intolerable to the people« that the students of- the University were forced to call upon the authorities either .to put a stop to them, or allow the inhabitants to arm themselves. The commandant of the troops and the local authorities refused all satisfaction ; and the day before yesterday the police sent a commis^ sar^to the University to signify to thestúdents the result of their step. On leaving, they found two officers posted at the gate of the estabishment,. who, with'cigars in their mouths, insulted and defied the young men of the schools.

JPROGRESS OF THE REVOLUTION. Paris, Tuesday, 7th March, 5 PM. ISvEKTTtUNQ indicates the gradual return of alliiirs to their ordinary channels. The Bourse was opened to-day. The cash price was 56. ' The provisional government has issued the fol- lowing official communication on the subject of the suspension of payments by the banking-house 'of Gouin and Co. :' " ; " Reports liave been circulated about the causes of the suspension of payments by the house of <ïouin. We say ' suspension,' for the Caisse of Gouin is not in discomfiture. It had made in- vestments to the amount of 34,000,000 fr. Con- sequently it was impossible for it to continue its circulation, and meet the demands made upon it for reimbursement. The provisional government is actively engaged in establishing a discount bank." In consequence of the removal of M. Gamier Pages to the ministry of finance, .M. Arago is named Mayor of Paris, and vacates the ministry of marine. We learn that the 1st Regiment of Engi...

Solomon, although he is (as well known) far advanced in years, stoutly resisted the fellows, and in the affray got rather badly used. It is said that Mr. Solomon offered them his plate, but this they refused to take, and ultimately car- ried away with them about fifteen shillings in cash, being all they could find. Various rumours are afloat, respecting this gang, but they are sup- posed to be runaways from some...

VARIETIES. OUR LEGAL HEROES. (From Punch, February 19.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 8 July 1848

VARIETIES. OUR LEGAL HEROES. fFrom Punch, February .19.<J, ,. SINCE the prospect of an invasion by the French has been spoken of, the entire legal profession has been up in arms, and the Bar has declared with one voice, that every member will shed his last lock of horse-hair, and lay down his last fee if necessary, in defence of his native land. Arrange- ments are already in progress for completing a forensic corps, calculated to strike terror into the breasts of the bravest foes ; and it is not perhaps generally known that a Law Review is about to be established, which will be in fact a periodical, but will consist of powder and shot instead of paper and print It is in fact intended to call out the legal cohorts to exercise once a week, by roll of drum, in the precincts of the Rolls. The .wea- pons of this gallant band will consist of those legal instruments with which such deadly havock is usually committed ; and we ask in the utmost confidence, which of us would not fl...

THE TROOPS IN THE COLONIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 8 July 1848

THE TROOPS IN THE COLONIES. IN all the discussions that have taken place re- gal ding the importance of improving our system of national defence, it has been our care to keep a portion of the public attention fixed upon the state of the British colonial and other possessions, and to urge the importance of increasing the regular army, at the same time that a large and eflectivc home force is duly organised. The better to demonstrate the imperative neces- sity for this augmentation of the military estab- lishment, we have drawn up the subjoined state- ment of the population of the colonies, placing in juxta-po8ition therewith the strength of the force assigned to their protection. The insignificance of the latter, in comparison with the number of persons to be defended or overawed, cannot fail to strike every reader, the proportion being about one soldier to every one bundled and twenty inhabitants ! It is perfectly true that, with the exception of the Cape of Good Hope,- New Zealand,...
