BATTLE BEFORE VERONA. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 16 September 1848

BATTLE BEFORE VERONA. Jj Verona, May 7.-A most sanguinary engage- ment took place yesterday under our very walls, the result of which was that the enemy, three times our number, were finally compelled to retire to Valeggio. The Austi ians fought with deter- mined courage, and sustained severe loss. General Salis received a bullet in his breast, and fell dead from his horse. Lieutenant-Colonel Lenzendorf and other officers are amongst the slain. The 10th regiment of Chasseurs suffered most, and the ranks of the Italian grenadiers in the Austrian service were also greatly thinned. The loss on the Piedmontese side is reported to be very severe. For seven hours the guns kept up one continued cannonade, and many of the balls rolled to the very gates of the city. Another letter, dated on the evening of the battle, at six p.m., says, that the right wing of the army was commanded by General d'Aspre, the left hy General Wratislaw ; the troops on the other side of the Adige by General Weiden....

LOCAL DISAGREEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 23 September 1848

LOCAL DISAGREEMENTS. We have often lamented the rapidity with which a slight misunderstanding amongst intimate friends has led to an open de- claration of hostility. Pride, on both sides, has prevented an explanation, and engendered such rancorous feelings as to defy the intervention of arbitrators, until at length the breach became final and in- veterate. As this often occurs to private individuals, so does it also to classes and bodies of men. -Any .assumption of su- periority excites jealously, and mortifies vanity,-such is the rule of human nature, whatever may be the exceptions,-and the consequence becomes estrangement and disunion. Interest is then opposed to interest ; ' and each' party persuades itself that its own welfare and prosperity are to be attained by defeating the objects of the other. Thus a portion of the human family which the natural order of things, guided by infinite wisdom, had rendered mutually dependant and harmonious in all its parts, is broken into petty ...

We have been favoured by a friend with the following particulars :-On the evening preceding the race, the parties met at the Downs Hotel, where the necessary preliminaries were arranged, and the following gentlemen un- dertook the offices set against their names, viz, Stewards-Messrs. Miles, Percival Stephen, and T. Alford; Clerk of the Course-Mr. Walter Smith ; and Judge-Mr. Graham. Great libe- rality and a spirit of mutual accommodation was^ we are happy to say, evinced by the parties in- terested. At twenty minutes to twelve on Wed- nesday morning the horses came to the scratch on Drayton Course ; they both looked well, but the mare was especially in spirits, and burning to get to work-it was with great difficulty that three men could hold he...

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 23 September 1848

COLONIAL EXTRACTS CURIOUS AFFAIR.-On Saturday, at the dead     hour of night, the neighbouihood not a hundred miles from Wooloomooloo was started by the re-   port of a pistol. No further particulars were gleaned till yesterday, when it came out that a gentleman, who resides there, returned home   rather unexpectedly, and found a well known gent, of high standing in society, somewhat too near the apartment of his wife. The unlucky in amorate made a very quick exit through the window on the lawn in front of the house, and being mistaken for a robber, was shot at by the husband. But the latter was quickly undeceived, as, on get-   ting a light, a letter bearing the address of the amorous invader of domestic rights, and one or two other little remnants, left no doubt as to his identity. The lady, it is understood, has returned to her surviving parent, and as the marauder will not fight, the aflair will give employment to ...

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 23 September 1848

THE íHortton 23ai> Confier. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 1848. By the Susan's mail we have received Sydney and Port Phillip papers, the former to the 9th, and the latter to the 1st instant. By the courtesy of Captain Sarjeant, of the Columbine, we had pre- viously been furnished with papers which have not come to hand by the mail. There were no late arrivals from Eng- land. A letter to the Editor of the John JBu.ll> and which is extracted in a Port Phillip paper, states that, to a deputation which waited upon Earl Grey on the .rsubject of emigration, his Loidship re- plied that it was in contemplation to train ,a number of orphan children to people Australia. The-writer in the John Bull - is very caustic upon the subject. Governor Young has made himself popular in the beginning of his adminis- tration hy abandoning the claims of the Crown to Royalties on the lands of South Australia, until her Majesty's further pleasure is made known. The colonists, however, will send home their pe...

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE. (From the Sydney Morning Herald, Sept. 9.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 23 September 1848

COMMERCIAL INTELLIGENCE (From the Sydney Morning Herald, Sept. 9) At the commencement of the present week the   greatest inactivity prevailed, the trade were most     reluctant to enter further liabilites: for during the previous weeek or two businesses had declined materially, and many parties were looking forward to having an exceedingly dull season, which will be caused it is thought by the depreciation of pro- duce in the home market. To several country storekeepers having arrived during the last few days, some businesse has been done, though prices vary little since last quotations. Manchester goods and general drapery are in good demand, imports falling short of the average, and inadequate to our consumption. Bleached and grey calicoes, domestics, shirtings, cotton ticks, printed cambrics,medium and good mole- skins and hosiery are amongst the dearest articles; they are principally in the hands of the trade, and are realising fair prices....

WOMEN FOR AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 23 September 1848

WOMEN FOR AUSTRALIA. Under the above title a paragraph, from an English paper, has been going the round of the Australian journals. It is stated that, to supply colonial deficiencies, a number of women are to be sent out from Miss Burdett Coutts's Magdalen Asylum, at Shepherd's Bush. Now, as the colonists have lately rejected the over- tures of the Goverment for a revival of the transportation system, it is to be as- sumed that there is no intention of com- plimenting New South Wales with the company of the fair vestals alluded to. But, as it is quite possible, from the flattering opinions entertained of this colony by many persons in England, that such a notion may be conceived, we beg, in the name of every virtuous woman in the colony, to protest against such an im- portation. We have the deepest admira- tion for the generous efforts of Miss Coutts to ameliorate the condition of suffering humanity, and, with all humility, we trust that we are not void of charity for those unhappy ...

IPSWICH. ("From our Correspondent. J Wednesday, Sept. 20.-Through the instru- mentality of the Flying Pieman, we received your last publication far earlier than we ever did before -that is to say, at noon on Saturday last, the day of its issue ; and had it not been that he lost his way, there is not the slightest doubt that we could have enjoyed the perusal of the Conrier at the same time that we were partaking of our toast and eggs, at nine A.n. " Pity ¡t is" that we cannot secure his services to the district. After .arriving here, instead of resting as ordinary mortals would do, he kept travelling round our little town at the rate of knots, carrying with him a tray full of " kisses," which he readily disposed of,-and at six p.m. again took his departure for Brisbane, so as to arrive there .in time for supper, a distance which, at a moderate calculation, could not have been less than seventy miles in sixteen hours,-but this he designated a mere stroll.
