Colonial Politics. THE NORTHERN SETTLEMENTS. MORETON BAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 24 December 1835
THE NORTHERN SETITLEMENTS. &nbsp; MORETON BAY. The difficulty of procuring eligible land within a reasonable distance of Sydney, and the recent establishment of a Steam-packet, as a regular trader between Sydney and Port Macquarie, have of late induced a considerable number of respect- able persons who intend settling in the country, to direct their attention to the Northern Settle- ments. "To look for land" is now as frequently the object of a trip to Port Macquarie, as "to look for WILLIAM WATT ;" and we are most &nbsp; happy to inform those who visit that rising settle- ment for either of these purposes, that they are not likely to be disappointed. We endeavoured in our last number, to direct &nbsp; &nbsp; the attention of our readers to the vast resources of the northern settlements, and to the great ad- ditional extent and importance which the esta- blishment of a numerous and virtuous free emi- grant population in these settlements, would give...
