LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 12 September 1846

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. A 'TAHEITEAN AMONGST THE ABORIGINES. On Sunday last, Mr. Burnett, the surveyor, re- turned from the Bay, where he has been lately engaged in marking the channel at the Northern Entrance, bringing with him a native of Otaheite, named George Moy, who, for many months past, has been living with a tribe of blacks inhabiting the coast near Bribie's Island. It appears that the blacks, when they discovered the surveying party, came, and stated that there was a white man amongst them. Mr. Burnett, on hearing this, landed and, after walking a short distance along the beach, saw the 'Taheitean, with a portion of the tribe. Being a stout, tall, athletic man, Moy, we are told, seemed a giant to the pigmies around him. Moy states that about fourteen months ago he was a headsman on board the Nimrod, whaler, belonging to Messrs. Lamb and Parbury, of Syd- ney. The vessel was then cruising, at about sixty miles from Moreton Bay ; and, sighting whales, her boats were lowered. Besi...

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 12 September 1846

M o r e t o n THE Bay   Courier. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 1846. THE time, we trust, is not far distant, when the venerable gentleman who is nominally the Representative of the great electoral district of Gloucester, Macquarie, and Stanley, will mark his sense of duty to his adopted country and his consti- tuents by tendering his resignation.* An allusion to the privileges and duties we shall be shortly called upon to exercise, will not, therefore, be out of place. Thanks to our magnificent district, thanks to the wealth and energy of an enterprising and intelligent community, our franchisial claims are no longer in- significant. From the small number of twelve votes, given by the electors of Stanley at the time of Mr. McLeay's re- turn to the Legislative Council, the elec- toral roll prepared by the Chief Constable in April last showed that there were then resident in the county fifty-seven persons entitled to a voice in our Colonial Assem- bly. And so considerable has b...

THE         Moreton Bay Courier.   SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 1846. Come, bright Improvement ! on the car of Time, And rule the spacious world from clime to clime.   " STEAM COMMUNICATION" has already be nefited Australia to an extent that can   scarcely be over-estimated. It has brought together interests before isolated-facili- tated intercourse-economised labour   given assurance of certainty to the trader, and a sense of security to the common-   weal - and, it may be added without fiction or extravagance, annihilated space and achieved a noble victory over Time.   But, great and important as are these re- sulting advantages, they are but light in   the balance when weighed with those, which the application of steam to our in tercourse with England will produce.   The enterprise, enthusiasm, energy, and perseverance of one man h...

A FRAGMENT FROM DUNCAN'S HISTORY OF GREASE : " An ow'r true tale ;" showing how the Customs, in searching for a rat's-hole, found a mare's nest.             " Suspicion shall be stuck all full of eyes." SHAKSPEARE.               A hog in armour is a noble subject for contem- plation ; so is a lapdog in breaches ; so is a cat in pattens. But what are all these to our Sub- Collector, armed to the teeth.       There are various kinds of hunters : there are red-coated sportsmen hunting like mad after little dogs with bushy tails ; there are duns hunting for money ; black gins hunting for crawlers. But in moral beauty and grandeur, these sink far be- low hunters for stills. A fine sight-a very fine sight. Our great Sub had buckled on a sword, as old and rusty as that which Baillie Ja...

COLONIAL ABSTRACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 19 September 1846

COLONIAL ABSTRACT. The Hobart Town Courier states, that the best labourers are still hurrying away from the colony. The 51st regiment embarked for India on the 8th ultimo, in the ships China and Agincourt; -The blacks at Port Albert, in Gipps' Land, have of late been very troublesome, and have killed a number of horses for the sake of their flesh, of which they are very fond. A horse belonging to Mr. Oak- den, imported at a cost of 450 guineas had been thus destroyed.-The £5 scrip of the Burra Burra mines, in South Australia, was quoted at £80 on the 11th August.-A company, for the smelting of copper ore, with a capital of £10,000, has been formed at Adelaide.-A national system of educa- tion has been introduced into Western Australia. -The township of Burra Burra, in South Austra- lia, where the mines are situated, already numbers twenty-two houses, built of stone.-Hops are raised at Mypunga, South Australia, said to be equal to English grown ; the price paid for English hops is £4...

DR. LEICHHARDT'S LECTURES. (Continued from Supplement.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 19 September 1846

DR. LEICHHARDT'S LECTURES. ( Continued from Supplement. ) Quadrupeds.-Respecting the quadrupeds, it may be mentioned that the common grey kangaroo   {macropus major), lives along the whole east coast of Australia, and that we killed the last at the Van Diemen River, the open grassy forests of which   abounded with them. At the west coast of the gulf, the red forester of Fort Essington (osphran ter Antilopenus gld.), took its place, and was tolerably numerous in small flocks. The walluru ( osphranter robustas) was observed last in the rocky wilds of the Upper South Alligator River. Rock wallabies, resembling petrogale lateralis gld., were living amongst the cliffs of Ruined Castle Creek, in lat. 25-9. At the Mitchell we met a brush wallabi of a brownish colour and very coarse hair (halmatorus agilis gld.), which was common   a11 around the Gulf of Carpentaria. At the head of the gulf a dark grey kangaroo was killed : it had a nail at the end of ...

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 19 September 1846

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. A letter read at a recent meeting of the Geo- graphical Society, from Mr. Duncan, the African traveller, states that the King of Ashantee enter- tained him with a review of 6,000 female troops ; whose arms, accoutrements, and performance, were truly astonishing.   The Hobart Town Advertiser states, that " in consequence of Lady Hardinge's ill health, Sir Henry is about to visit England. His absence will not, however, continue longer than three months, which, now that the Punjaub is pacified, he is enabled to do with advantage to his govern- ment, from personal communication with the ministers. The William Hyde was to sail from London for Sydney on the 15th May. A considerable number of passengers had engaged, and among them Colonel Barney and family, that gentleman having accepted the office of Superintendent of the new colony of North Australia. The Queen of France has presented the College of Maynooth with a superb suit of vestments, ...

DR. LEICHHARDT'S LECTURES. LECTURE II. DELIVERED at the School of Arts, Sydney, on Tuesday August 25. Ladies and Gentlemen,-I shall now give you .an account of the change of vegetation we experi- enced in advancing into the tropics ; I shall enu- merate all the edible vegetable substances we found, the change of animals, and shall conclude with some observations on the natives we met during our journey. The vegetation changed very little along the east coast from Moreton Bay to the northward. The open forest was generally formed by the narrow-leaved and silver-leaved ironbark, the flats were covered by box, the bergs along the rivers and creeks, by bloodwood and Moreton Bay ash ;   and the immediate banks of the creeks were lined with flooded gums and casuarinas, which, farther northward, gave way to the dropping tea-tree. We never met with vine and cedar brushes like those which grow along the rivers of Port Mac- quarie and Moreton Bay, or on the sides of mountains, li...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 19 September 1846

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. DISTRESS IN IRELAND.-A subscription has been set on foot in this district, by several bene- volent individuals, in aid of the fund for the relief of our distressed fellow-subjects in Ireland, and we anticipate that a sum will be raised fully pro- portionate to our means ; for such is the appalling distress at present existing in that unfortunate country, owing to the failure of the potatoe crop, that disease and death, consequent upon destitution, have swept away hundreds. There is an absolute necessity for our aid to ameliorate the condition of these poor people, and we sincerely trust it will not be withheld by the inhabitants of Moreton Bay. It will be seen by the advertisement, (which we willingly insert gratis), to whom the subscriptions are to be paid. PLEASURE TRIP.—It will be seen by our ad- vertising columns that the Experiment will pro- ceed to Woogaroo to-morrow morning, on a pleasure trip, returning to town the same evening.

OPENING OF THE COUNCIL. ON Wednesday, the 8th instant, His Excellency Sir Charles Fitzroy met the Legislative Council for the first time. The Council Chamber was crowded with ladies ; and a large concourse of respectable persons assembled to hear His Excel- lency's opening speech. Lady Mary Fitzroy was introduced into the House by the Speaker, and occupied the chair reserved for her to the right of the Speaker's chair. The reception His Excellency met with was most cordial, and he must have de- rived great satisfaction from the Council's address, which is an echo of His Excellency's speech. The following is the SPEECH. " Mr. Speaker and Gentlemen of the Legislative Council.

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 26 September 1846

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1846. AT the close of the first quarter of its existence, the Courier offers its salutation to its numerous readers, and the families where it has been a frequent, and, it is to be hoped, not unwelcome visitant. The rapid progress of society in civili- zation and the arts, the speedy communi- cation and frequent intercourse subsisting between these colonies and all parts of the globe, their vast extent and steady ad- vancement, the busy enterprise of its centre of power and intelligence in England, furnish materials far ampler than heretofore for the weekly journalist to accumulate, condense, and arrange. It is the intention of the proprietor of the Courier, therefore, to keep pace with the exigencies of the times, by furnishing occasional supplements, so as to compre- hend the extended boundaries of informa- tion. The great difficulty experienced throughout the colony in procuring sup- plies of paper, has prevented the proprietor fro...
