BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 26 September 1846

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. BY the barque William Hyde, which vessel sailed from the Downs on the 16th May, we have re- ceived London papers to the 14th of that month.   The Queen and Royal Family were quite well.   Subscriptions in favour of the " Waghorn Tes- timonial," were going on prosperously. Mr. Waghorn has only the rank of a Lieutenant in   the Navy, and has a private fortune. It is rumoured that the Queen of Spain was to visit the King of the French, at Paris. -The Morning Chronicle of the 15th May states, with reference to the relief of the Distressed Irish, that" the benevolent labours of the relief com- mittees have already produced a manifest allevia- tion of the distress. Even in north Tipperary, this change for the better begins to be apparent. In various districts of Tipperary, the gentry and wealthy inhabitants are still subscribing to pro-   vide food and employment. In Downpatrick, it was stated at a publi...

QUALITY, COMPOSITION, AND PRESERVATION OF BUTTER. (From Johnston's Elements of Agricultural Chemistry,) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 26 September 1846

QUALITY, COMPOSITION, AND PRESER-   VATION OF BUTTER.   ( From Johnston's Elements of Agricultural Chemistry,) 1. The quality of butter varies with numerous circumstances. The kind of natural pasture or of artificial food upon which the cow is fed, the season of the year, the breed and individual con- stitution of the animal, all affect the quality of the butter.     But from the same cow fed on the same food, a richer butter and a finer and higher flavour will be obtained by churning the last drawn portions of the milk. So the first cream that rises gives the finest flavoured butter,-while any cream or milk will give a butter of better quality if it be properly soured before it is churned, and be then churned slowly and at a low temperature. 2. The Composition of Butter.-Butter, as it usually brought to the market, contains more or less of all the ingredients of milk. It consists, however, essentially of the fat of milk intimately...

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 3 October 1846

THE Moreton Bay Courier.                         SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1846. SIR CHARLES FITZROY'S first speech to the Legislative Council has more than satisfied   public expectation. It is, to use the   language of Mr. Wentworth, " unlike any- thing in the shape of an address from the Governor" heard by the Representatives of the People before. It is, in our humble   judgment, exactly what, under all circum-   stances, it should have been. " There is   in it," says the Sydney Herald, " so much of the simplicity of truth-so evi- dent an earnestness to win the confidence and meet the reasonable expectations of the community-so entire a freedom from all pre-conceived impressions-so prudent a determination to await the teachings of local experience-that, for our own pa...

ENGLISH NEWS. WOOL SALES. Liverpool, 8th May, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 3 October 1846

ENGLISH NEWS.     WOOL SALES.   Liverpool, 8th May, 1846. The entire quantity of fine and low foreign and   colonial wool brought forward at the public sales   yesterday and to-day, was 8736 bales. The at- tendance of buyers of fine wools was not equal to what we have seen it, .owing to the continued de- pression of trade in Yorkshire. The announcement of the public sales in London   being fixed for the 13th instant, when a large quantity will be offered, has also had rather an unfavourable influence on our last sales, as buyers are under an impression that they will then be able to supply themselves on more reasonable terms, and, therefore, not disposed to add to their stocks beyond their immediate requirements. Australian,-The quantity offered was insig- nificant, and principally skin wool. Prices are barely equal to previous sales. Spanish.-The demand at the sales was chiefly confined to middle qualitie...

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. SEPTEMBER 8. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 3 October 1846

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL, SEPTEMBER 8. After the delivery-of His Excellency's speech; which we published in our last, several honorable members spoke on the adoption of a reply. Among others, Mr. WENTWORTH expressed his deep grati- fication at the speech. It was, he said, so unlike anything, in the shape of an address from the Governor, that had yet been heard within the walls of that house, that he was sure the sentiments it professed, and the tone it breathed, must be matter of earnest congratulation to them all. He would not allow himself to believe that that document could be the mere fume and froth with nothing at the bottom, which had formed the materials of similar addresses hitherto delivered to that house, He, for one, had no doubt from the caution evinced by His Excellency in not entering hastily into measures of importance-from the intention ex- pressed by him of visiting the interior and in- forming himself of subjects of which he at present could know nothing, that His E...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE CONSTABULARY. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 3 October 1846

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE CONSTABULARY. ABOUT a fortnight since, Mr, Constable McCro- hon, on account of his previous good conduct was promoted to the rank of District Constable, and was ordered to proceed to Ipswich in the room of Mr. Higgins, who was dismissed for gross misconduct. Our Ipswich friends, doubtless, were congratulating themselves that the new official would be of a different stamp to his predecessor--- that McCrohon, who had for two long years been a staunch teetotaller, would not again be found guilty of the besetting sin. Their expec- tations, however, were doomed to be disappointed. Mr. McCrohon, as a plain Dogberry, was well enough in his way ; but the moment the covetted title of District Constable was conferred, he was quite another man. Unlooked-for titles, like un- looked riches, have turned many a man's head,   and so it was with McCrohon. On his arrival at the quiet town of Ipswich, Mr. McCrohon was the " observed of all observers ;" the inhabita...

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1846. THE UPSET PRICE OF LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 10 October 1846

THE Moreton Bay Courier.                 SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1846. THE UPSET PRICE OF LAND. On the 25th of September, in the Legis- lative Council, Mr. Lowe brought forward the resolutions of which he had given notice respecting the present Upset Price of Land, which were : 1. That the raising the upset price of land, first to 12s., and afterwards to £1, per acre, has rendered waste land unsaleable. 2. That while this price is maintained, the squatting question can never be settled on a just and satisfactory basis. 3. That the upset price of land ought to be reduced to a sum not exceeding its value. With the first and last of these proposi- tions we entirely agree, but with regard to the second our opinions widely differ. Mr. Lowe in his very eloquent speech on this vitally important question, argues against the leasing system on the ground that the lessees would sub-let, and th...

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. THE ISSUE OF THE CORN-LAW MEASURE. IN THE LORDS. (From Bell's Messenger, May 11.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 10 October 1846

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. THE ISSUE 0F THE CORN-LAW MEASURE IN THE LORDS: (From Bell's Messenger, May 11.)     We know nothing more difficult than to stop the train and current of thought, where it is running forcibly in any man in any one channel or direc- tion. The very effort to effect this object is only   a renewed commencement of what we seek to banish and forget-" All impediments in fancy's course," says our own great dramatic bard, and he says it as truly as poetically, " are motives of new fancy." We have no doubt there is not a man living, who at some period in every year of his life, has not made a strong resolution, that he will think no more of it ; but he has as often found it impossible to do so. We find the same effect in our own mind with respect to the Corn-laws, and their ultimate issue in the Lords. We have made repeated resolutions to abstain from this subject until the actual arrival of the measure in the Upper Hou...

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 10 October 1846

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. Sir,-In your paper of the 3rd instant, under the head of " The Constabulary," you have given insertion to a misrepresentation of the conduct of Constable McCrohon on his arrival, as I conceive you acquired your information from a resident in this town, who, under the pretence of giving you a facetious morsel for your readers, gratified the worst of feelings of himself and clique, by getting you to publish a series of falsehoods, to injure McCrohon in the estimation of the Magistrates ; but being well aware of your anxiety (as a caterer for public instruction and amusement) to re- fute any false statements which may be inadvert- ently inserted in your journal, I beg to hand you a true version of this matter, which can, if, re- quired, be verified by affidavit. On the arrival of McCrohon at Ipswich, a man, named Samson-who has a wife and child-craved permission from McCrohon to remain a day or two in a building attached to the Lockup-a part of...

NORTH AUSTRALIA. HOUSE OF LORDS, MAY 19. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 10 October 1846

NORTH AUSTRALIA. HOUSE OF LORDS May 19.   Earl Grey wished to ask Her Majesty's Govern- ment whether any measures had been taken for the establishment of a new colony, which was, he believed to be called North Australia : for it ap- peared from papers that had been laid before the House, that a new colony was to be founded, con- sisting almost exclusively of persons who had undergone the sentence of the law, and who were, in New South Wales language, emancipated. Lord Lyttleton said, undoubtedly the scheme to which the noble earl had referred had been carried on to a great degree ; but he was a little surprised at his noble friend bringing the question forward at that time, because he must have seen from the papers that the intention of the Government to institute a new colony was made known eighteen months ago. No objection had ever been raised to that scheme, and the arrangements connected with it had been carried through to a great extent : as to the description of t...
