OPENING OF QUEEN'S COLLEGE, LONDON. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 12 August 1848

OPENING OF QUEEN'S COLLEGE, \ i ,' - LONDON. YESTERDAY tlie new college, which has been es- tablished'under the sanction of her Most Gracious Majesty, for the instruction of ladies, on the plan pursued in our national universities, was formally opened, in the presence of a large number of dis- tinguished persons/ who have liberally contributed to its formation. It will be remembered that, tftö or three years since, an institution, having for its object the as- sistance of governesses in temporary difficulty, granting annuities to those who became aged, providing an asylum for those who stood in need of such assistance, was set on foot and was warmly supported by many of our principal nobility. The institution was productive of such beneficial results, and Of the encouraging facts that were brought under the notice of the committee, sug- gested the idea of a college, upon an extensive scale, for the education of governesses, and such other ladies as might feel disposed to avail them-...

IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 12 August 1848

IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent.) WEDNESDAY, August 9.-With reference to the remarks in your last publication relative to the electors in this town having entered a protest against the irregularity of the late election, in consequence of no polling having taken place at Ipswich, I think it will be admitted by every one of common sense that we have just cause of com- plaint when I inform you that up to Tuesday the 1st instant, only about eighteen hours before the election commenced ! e were al ways led to believe» in fact, informed by Dr. Simpson, that he was returning officer for this town, and that if any candidate started in opposition to Mr. Boyd, he would attend here to take our votes. Now take into consideration the difficulty of obtaining, at a moment's notice, a mode of conveyance over such an abominably bad toad as that between this and Brisbane ; consider also that the notice requiring our attendance was not heard of until after the departure of the Experiment, how then co...

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 12 August 1848

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. NEW ZEALAND. WE are in receipt of copies of the Nelson Ex- aminer to the 8th July. We give a few extracts, but the papers contain nothing important. , RETURN OF MR. BRUNNER.-It is with the most sinceie satisfaction that we are able to announce the safe return of Mr. Brunner, and his party of tour natives,-1 from their long and perilous journey. Mr. Brunner reached Nelson yesteiday, after an absence of sixteen months and a fortnight, hav- ing left Nelson on the 3id of December, 1846. We'can do1 little more atpiesent than announce his return in good health and spirits, but we hope that we'shall be; able to gratify our readers with the particulars of his interesting journey on an i-arly-ulay.

THE NEW COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 19 August 1848

THE NEW COUNCIL. ALL theielectoral districts of New South Wales proper have now returned their re- presentatives, and'the individual members elected are officially known to the public, with the exception of the member returned for the Northern Counties ; hut it is still doubtful whether the turmoil, trouble, and expense consequent upon a general elec- tion may not turn out to have been in- curred in vain, since the unaccountable conduct of ceitain parties in Port Phillip, in refusing to give effect to the Governor's writs^y returning the six members which that province is appointed to furnish as its pioportion of representatives, will not lander« the Council incapable of sitting for the despach1 of business. Of the des- picable conduct of 'the'miserable clique of piesumptuous fools by which this issue has been brought about, we are happy to observe that all parties, beyond the in- fluence of their own narrow circle, speak in terms of the strongest condemnation. The undisguised selfi...

THE TALLOW TRADE. MONDAY, AFEIL 24.

BRITISH EXTRACTS. REBELLIOUS DEMONSTRATION IN IRELAND. (From Frazer's Magazine.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 19 August 1848

BRITISH EXTRACTS. REBELLIOUS DEMONSTRATION IN IRELAND. ÍFrom¡ Frazer1* Magazine, j IT is not easy to predict the consequences of these events. It would be folly to treat them with utter contempt, as it would be to exaggerate their im- portance ; but it would be equally unwise on the part of England to be two confident. If Lord Clarendon had to deal only with those of the John O'Connell school, the affair would be settled much as the last was settled ; but it is right to say that the merl w'luf'liave so daringly outraged the im- perial power are of à very different order. Without giving d-em undue importance, we may say that they aie thoroughly'in earnest, that they carry their delusion on the'subject of Irish nationality to the extent of infatuation, and that, whether their intended rebellion were to end in a mere riot or in a partial insurrection, still they would, ifthe opportunity were allowed them, make the attempt. Nor is it right to conceal the fact that this notion of nationa...

THE LATEST NEWS FROM PARIS. ¡ PARIS, APRIL 25. THERE is a slight appearance of a return of con- fidence, but as yet no fact has transpired to justify a hope that even if the political horizon should clear up a little, that of the finances will not re- main thickly clouded. Business of every kind has almost ceased, and it is calculated that throughout France there are at this moment more than 500,000 workmen who were thrown out of bread hythe revolution, and who are receiving support either for doing nothing or for unpro- ductive labour, from the government or the municipalities of the departments. The average amount paid to each workman is 7 francs per week; making'a total of 3,500,000 francs per week, or nearly 250 millions of francs per annum. The produce in labour is nothing ; the mern are employed upon road work, which could have waited for better times, or in idleness. Manufac- turers who held their ground for a few weeks after the revolutiun are now closing their facto- ries, ...

The election for Melbourne took place on the 2Gth ultimo, and ended, as we stated in last .week's Courier, va. the election of Earl Grey.

Two other ships, the Sylilla and Forfarshire, were to sail one in the beginning and the other in the middle of April. The new Governor, Sir Henry E. Fox Young, had taken his passage in the latter vessel, and, as she was described as a fast sailer, His Excellency's arrival was daily looked for at Ade- laide. The Westminster had brought private letters containing assurances i that a considerable immigration of both the middle and lower classes would take place to the colony during the present year. Intelligence was also brought by the West- minster that there was no chance that South Australia would obtain a more popular form of Government during the then session of Parliament, the excuse offered by the Colonial Office being, that the question of the future government of South Australia must be considered in connexion with that of the...
