WARWICK. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 15 July 1848

WARWICK. - f From our Correspondent.J JULY 7, 1818.-It is rumoured that a township will, be shortly opened here; the site is highly eligible for such, being pleasantly situated on the banks of the fresh water of the Condamine, where a never-failing supply of the pure element can be had even iu the most excessive drought, and where the climate is most salubrious, epidemics being scarcely known here of any sort. The township can be so laid out that the public thoroughfare from New England to Brisbane by the new line of road, east of Cunningham's Gap, might pass through the centre of it. The adjacent country is too well known to require description. It iscalled Ihe Canning and Darling Downs, and is occupied by a large and wealthy community of independent settlers. It is hoped that the Government will soon order a land sale of the township, and the sooner the better, as there is now a number of re spec table mechanics, labourers, and others, most eager to become purchasers of allotments...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 15 July 1848

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent)   WEDNESDAY, JULY 5.-The Small Debts Court opened to day before Messrs. Simpson, Dorsey, and North. The first case called was dismissed for want of jurisdiction, the defendant residing at Darling Downs, and the written agreement which bad been entered into, not having been dated as required by the XXIII clause of the Act. Case the second was settled out of Court. Case the third was for a note of hand against which Mr. Fletcher, for the defendant put in a set off, this their Worships overruled, as they con- sidered that against such a document, no contra account could be allowed, the defendant having it in his power to sue at the next sittings. Case the fourth was for the plaintiff, with a slight reduction. Case the fifth was for goods sold and delivered to a third party without the written authority of the defendant, although on a former occasion he had ordered and paid for goods for the same party. The case was p...

BRITISH EXTRACTS. The Times Office, Saturday Morning, March 11. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 July 1848

.BRITISH EXTRACTS. T. f.. The Times Office, 1 Saturday Morning, March 11. WB¡ have received by extraordinary express, the Paris papers of yesterday, with a letter from our correspendent, dated half-past eleven o'clock a.m. The coming elections began to exclude all other topics of discussion in the journals, as they seem to engross the attention of the provisional govern mcnt'and of society in general. Everybody felt aware that the advent of the elections' and* of the Constituent Assembly was inevitable, but it is quite clear that the approach of this crisis is re- garded with gravity, if not awe. The exertions of all moderate men were, and will probably con 4¡nue to be, directed to preparations for the first events by appeals to the patriotism and good sense of the people. The month that will in- tervene between the present period and the elec- tions will, no doubt, be spent in similar efforts by the parties just indicated ; but it will equally afford to the more exalted portion of ...

A body of 100, it was believed, were to proceed from Holstien imme- diately to that colony.

A "Goon OLD" JOKE.-Two travellers having been robbed in a wood, and tied to trees at some distance from each other, one of them in despair exclaimed, .. Oh, I'm undone !" " Are you,'1 said the other, " then I wish you'd come and undo me." MAKINS A VIRTUE OP NECESSITY.-Dr. R. maintained that poverty was a virtue. " That," said Mr. Canning, " is literally making a virtue of necessity."

NEW SOUTH WALES. HOUSE OF COMMONS, MARCH 10. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 July 1848

NEW SOUTH WALES. HOUSE OF COMMONS! MARCH 10. MR. F. SCOTT wished to ask whether the govern- ment bad any intention of making'any, and what, change in tíie constitution of New South Wales ; whether any communication of such an intention had been made to the Legislative Council of the colony, in order to obtain the opinion of the colony upon such a proposed alteration ; and, if so, whether the Government would lay the papers before Par- liament. ' Mr. Labouchere replied, that a representation liad ' been made from Australia to Her Majesty's Government,, strongly urging the propriety of -separating New South Wales from Australia. [Port Phillip from New South Wales.-S.M.H.} 'The noble lord at the head of the colonial depart- ment hoped to .be able to propose a measure for effecting that object. The noble lord had it also under consideration, whether it might not be ex- pedient at the same time to introduce certain other alterations joto the constitution of New South Walc3. A communicati...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 July 1848

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE.   A MAN STABBED,.-A sawyer, named Allone, residing in South Brisbane, was attacked on the Limestone-road by a person unknown, on the evening of Thursday last, and so severely stabbed in the back with a knife that some fears are en- tertained for his safety. The circumstances at- tending this outrage, as stated by Allone himself, are the following :-He and a man named McCann were journeying from Limestone to Brisbane, and riding, turn about, on McCann's horse. Allone arrived with the horse at Woogaroo, and put him into the stable of the inn until McCann came up. When he did so, they had a glass of grog toge- ther. The person who afterwards stabbed Allone was also drinking in the inn, though not in their company. This person, on leaving, took McCann's horse from the stable and rode off with him in the direction of Brisbane, and McCann requested Allone to follow him, and endeavour to obtain possession of the animal. Allone accordingly did so, and ove...

SKETCH OF M. GUIZOT. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 July 1848

SKETCH OF M. GUIZOT. THE British Quarterly Review draws a portrait of M. Guizot at the time he was in .power. It< says The only merit which we can accord to M.' Guizot, as a minister, is, that under his govern» ment the peace of Europe had been preserved/ But this merit belongs not chiefly, nor yet in the' .greatest degree, to him, for the whole of Europe is now disposed to be peaceable; and with Great Britain the desire to be so is a predo-i minent passion, and not a mere capricious andt fitful feeling. The desire for peace is a predo-: minent feeling with the middle classes of France-. Those classes whose organ and mouth-piece and minister M. Guizot has ever been. He is the minister of the French bourgeoisie, and if as such he has considered many material and some sub" altern interests of France in an undue degree, he lias too often forgotten the dignity and the honour» of his country in her foreign relations. It doetv not become a great, chivalrous, and gallant nation;...

MAURITIUS. SINCE the last arrival of Mauritius news,' w'ehaye*'. learned that commercial affairs in that island," art«' worse than we were led to believe.- "Only two firms are left standing-that of Messrs.

PEACE AND WAR PARTIES IN AMERICA. (From the Examiner.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 July 1848

PEACE AND WAR PARTIES IN AMERICA. ('From the Exambier.J ON the score of direct taxation the Americans have very decided opinions. They refuse alto- gether to authorise any tax-man to make such a levy. Let the Custom House supply all the exi- gencies of the state. Such is the financial creed of Yankee land, being in this respect the antipodes of Lancashire. But direct taxation, which as a medicine brother Jonathan abhors, he is not only zealous to recommend, but even to thrust down his ni'ighbour's throat.. Thus, whilst President Polk is enacting Lord George Bentinck in augmenting home tariffs, General Scott acts free trader in Mexico, abrogates half a dozen duties on transit and consumption, and replaces all by quadrupling the land tax, to be dilectly levied on farms or haciendas. * We have no doubt that the Mexican gentlemen will protest against General Scott's budget, even more fiercely than our country party against a property tax ; and that however advanced and philanthropic may...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 July 1848

re .ii.sïtAT*-DIEMEN'S¿LAND.? A BEQL'EST, had> been preferred to the GoveruorVof ¡ ¡Van Diemen's i Land,-by several influential sheep-" farmers, to take measures for prohibiting rthe im- portation of sh'eep from1 New,South Wale3 during the prevalence of catarrh in that colony. A pro- clamation had previously been issued, requiring a strict, examination of the sheep brought* over" previous to their being landed. The request ,of the stockholders was hot likely to be complied with. Sir William Denison had decided upon the ad- mission of copper ore and wool duty free. This was looked upon in Van Diemen's Land as a great advantage to the colonists of South Australia and Port Phillip, as it would afford'them facilities for the nioie speedy transmission of the above articles to the English market. In what respect this can be the case is by no means clear. To ship goods for England via Yan Diemen's Land does not appear likely to effect their speedy transmission, when opportunities equall...

ENGLISH POOR RATES.—IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 July 1848

ENGLISH POOR RATES.-IMMIGRATION. THE people in England are at last begin- ning to recognise the expediency of effec- tually relieving the parishes from the burden imposed upon them by the in cieasing number of paupers, by expending a poition of their poor rates in providing them with passages to Kew South Wales. The'town of Bradford, in Yorkshire, has in particular practically recognised the soundness of the doctrine by the appro- priation of £2000 for this purpose. Some other places have followed the example, and more, we have no doubt, will adopt it, so that once the advantages of the plan were fully ascertained by a little ex perience,'the annual inciease toourpopur lation by this* means may,Jin the^course of a year or t\\ o, be very considerable. "Asa mere consideration of economy to the rate payers of an English parish, we have no doubt that this scheme is worthy of adoption. When a pauper is once pro- vided with a passage to this colony, his parish is effectually relieved of h...
