BRANCH BANK. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 8 July 1848

BRANCH BANK.' THE following letter, signed we believe by almost every inhabitant of the settle- ment engaged in business, was forwarded by last Steamer. The subject of which it treats has been so frequently ? discussed by us that nothing new remains to be said about the matter, nor, in truth, do we now experience any anxiety in regard to it. The importance of this place, as the re- cognised capital of the great northern division of the colony, is now becoming so rapidly established that a Bank, either branch or local, must very speedily follow in the natural train, of events :--'^ "1 To the Board of Directors of the Union Bank of, Australia. . ¡, . (,,, Gen.tlcmen.-Having long felt,the inconveni-, pnce of there being no banking establishment here, and for the want of which our prosperity is very seriously curtailed, we would beg ty call your at- tention to the follow ing fads, w Uli á view to induce you to form a branch at this rapidly increasing town and district.

A HINT TO PUBLICANS.-The landlord at Dal maeardock, when a fray is brewing among his customers, puts a quantity of cayanne pepper in a bit of brown paper, makes the tongs ied hot, lifts the packet with them, and holds it at tha bottom of the door. The result seems almost magical. An inveteriit« sneezing commences, which is in- stantly succeeded by a rush to the door and a dis- solution of the company.

THE MINES OF BRITAIN AND SOUTH AUSTRALIA COMPARED. (From the South Australian Register.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 15 July 1848

THE MINES OF BRITAIN AND SOUTH AUSTRALIA COMPARED. (From the SotitU Australian Register.J THE directly profitable and otherwise beneficial results of successful'mining adventure are very generally acknowledged in England, and those who are not disposed to admit equal advantages as accruing from the pi-ogressof mining in South Australia, must either be looking at provincial causes and effects through a perverted medium, Ol- lie inveterately prejudiced, or blind indeed. ' The beneficial effects commence with the sales of mineral lands, so largely conducive to a varied immigration, comprising consumers as well as producers of agricultural and pastoral stock. The weekly or monthly sums paid to miners, laborers, mechanics, carriers, and others, constitute frequent infusions of new Wealth, and the freights furnished to shipping tend to cheapen the over sea intro- duction of useful labour, and to produce a large increase of commercial importance. The " sinews of war," here, happily unknown...

BRITISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 15 July 1848

BRITISH EXTRACTS. THE following extracts from the report of the proceedings at a meeting of the shareholders of the Union Bank are important, and ought at the present time to have a cheering effect : " The abundance of money and comparatively low rate of interest prevailing in New South Wales for the last two or three years, have na- turally given rise to increased internal consump- tion, and attracted a large and active import trade. This, concurring with other causes, has tended to produce an adverse state of exchange, and led to the transmission of a considerable amount in specie to this country. The directors, having for some time anticipated the result, made such pre- parations as enabled the branches under' the judi- cious instruction of the inspector to meet the greatly increased demand for bills on London, without the smallest derangement of their financial position, and with much benefit to the general interests of the bank. v -'/-The directors have the satisfaction of stat...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 15 July 1848

PORT PHILLIP. WE have received our usual files of Port Phillip papers to the, 20th ult.' The Anna Maria, with 190 exiles, was daily expected. They were to be landed at Geelong. The Town Council of Melbourne had agreed, by a majority of nine to live,- to petition Her Majesty the Queen to remove Mr. La Trobe, the Superintendent, from his office. The alleged grounds of complaint were his neglect of im- portant public works, his mismanagement of the money voted for the province, and his repeated breaches of faith with the Council. MELBOURNE MARKETS.---The price of wheat has advanced this week ; for infeiior samples 4s. 6d. per bushel is readily given, for superior 4s. 9d., and even as much as 5s. has been paid. This considerable rise is not, however, deemed the limit to svhich the prices will extend, for the farmers are exhibiting a strong disposition to withhold their stock from the market. Oats are selling at 3s. 6d. to 4s -English barley, 5s. per bushel. Flour has also experienced an...

LATEST NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 15 July 1848

LATEST NEWS. THE Champion is the only vessel that has arrived from Sydney during the week, and she brought no mail, but we have been favoured by Captain Collas with a Sydney Morning Herald of the 1st July, from which we have transferred the greater part of the European intelligence it con- tained. There, had evidently been no later ar- rivals at Sydney from England than those already reported, and the paper contains no local news worth noticing. All the gossip current in Sydney about the elec- tions we have condensed into a paragraph which will be found in another column. No candidate is there alluded to as~ having started for the electoral counties of which this forms one, although in the papers brought by last steamer we perceive that Mr. Archibald Boyd is mentioned, but on what authority we have no positive in- formation. We shall no doubt be en- lightened on this and other matters when the Tamar arrives.

LOUIS PHILIPP'S SONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 15 July 1848

LOUIS "PHILIFP'S SONS. WE find in a work recently published by M. Jacques Caste, the following graphic description of the characters of the four sons of the King of the French : The Dite de Ncmours ¡3 of a just and reserved character ; his mind displays intogi ity, discretion, and reflection, never creatiug an obstacle for the mere pleasure of triumphing over it, but solving it with a perfect comprehension of the difficulties which present themselves. In all councils he will be the faithful continuator of the ideas of the King ! and it may be already said that if he is not Louis Philippe he is the best lieutenant of Louis Philippe. Restrained in his tastes for the magnificent by the narrow limits of his own means, he does not the less practice the superior elegance of Louis the Fourteenth, and does not like to have his orders disputed. He has a taste for command. As a general, he is a good tactician. He has devoted himself to the acquisition of a knowledge of the personnel of the ar...

THE ííS o r c t o ii 33 a y Courier. SATURDAY, JULY 15, 1818. THE MORETON BAY COURIER. WE lake the earliest opportunity of an- nouncing that the property of this Journal has passed into other hands. The interest of the present proprietor-Mr. James Swan, who since the establishment of the paper has conducted the mechanical de- partment-in the Moreton Bay Courier commenced on the 1st day of July inst-, and all accounts accruing from that date are to he paid lo him. In noticing this change in the pro- prietorship of tbe paper, we take advantage of the opportunity it affords us to state that the Courier will be conducted hence- forth on* the same independent and con- sistent principles which have hitherto distinguished it, and by the same person to whom, during the last three or four months, its literary management has been chiefly entrusted. It does not appear to us that anything further is necessary to be said on this subject. The present proprietor of the Courier will spare no exerti...

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 15 July 1848

INDIA. Weare in possession of copies of the Horn bay Times to the 15th March last, at which date the most perfect tranquillity reigned throughout India. The country is described as having been for a considerable period particularly the province of Scinde, where great mortality usually prevailed among the Europeans - remarkably healthy. The wise administration of Lord Hardinge had placed the finances in avery flourish- ing condition, and the political aspect of affairs was also very promising. Lord Dalhousie .had been for some time in pos- session of the Government. In commercial matters we are sorry to perceive that the utmost confusion pre- vailed. Money was exceedingly scarce, and confidence almost entiiely destroyed, and all commeicial dealings nearly at a stand. Two additional failuies are re- ported, one of them that of Hickey, Bailie, and Co., indigo and general brokers at Calcutta, and the other a native house at Bombay -, the amounts ate not stated.

INTER-COLONIAL JEALOUSIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 15 July 1848

INTER-COyONIAL JEALOUSIES. NOTHING appears more silíy or mJore ab- surd than the causeless jealousies which often arise, not only between different« colonies, but between different districts of the same colony, whose interests a very small degree of reflection would show to be mutual. For this desire of endeavour- ing to exalt themselves at the expense of others, our southern friends have long been famous. Dering a long period the province of South Australia was "the butt of Port Phillip, whose inhabitants could not sufficiently express their astonishment that any person could be so foolish as to settle in the former colony while the beautiful plains of Australia Felix weie open to his selection. The early mis foutiunes of South Australia, her financial difficulties, and the incapacity of some of her5 Governors, combined to give a shew of''truth to the fierce phillipics of the Melbourne press ; although, of course, she never was the hopeless colony she was the"rein described to be. ...

BRITISH EXTRACTS. THE FIRST GREAT MISTAKE OF THE FRENCH PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT. (From the Times, February 29.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 15 July 1848

BRITISH EXTRACTS. THE FIRST GREAT MISTAKE OF THE FRENCH PROVISIONAL GOVERNMENT. (From, the Times, February 29.J BONAPARTE spoke a homely but important truth when he said Ue n'est que le ventre qui gouverne le monde. It is the loss, not of a Reform ban- quet, but of the daily bread of myriads, that has dethroned Louis Philippe and established a mob government in Paris, Full work and good wages would have kept that fierce democracy in order better than a hundred thousand soldiers of the line-better than twenty forts duly manned and provisioned-better even than a well-packed and well-fetd majority in the Chamber of Deputies. The real work of the revolution last week was done by hungry men. They contributed num- bers, fury, recklessness, and terror to an erneute. M. Odillon Barrot had another thing in view when he applied the torch to the magazine. He ex- pected a brilliant fire-work, illustrating constitu- tional piinciples. The effective tableau was to teach a grave moral. Out of an i...
