COLONIAL EXTRACTS. THE NEW COUNTIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 January 1849

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. THE NEW COUNTIES. THIRTY-ONE new counties were proclaimed in a supplement to the Government Gazette of the 30th ult. Below we give the proclamation, with the names of the counties ; but our limited space compels us to confine our extracts to the defini- tions of the boundaries of those counties which   lie to the northward and north-westward of Syd- ney, and which are most likely to interest our readers. The remaining counties in the middle district are Dampier, Beresford, Cowley, Buc- cleuch, Wallace, and Wellesley. All the others are in the district of Port Phillip. By his Excellency Sir Charles A. Fitz Roy, &c., &c., &c.-   Whereas her Majesty was graciously pleased by letters patent, under the great seal of the united Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, bearing date at Westminster the 20th day of Fe- bruary, 1846, to give and grant to me full power and authority, with the advice and consent of the Executive C...

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, JANUARY 13, 1849. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 January 1849

¿Kart-ton THE ' be ÎSa« Cotuicr. P1 m SATURDAY, JANUARY 13, 1849.   EXPENDITURE OF THE FERRY RENT. It is an ill wind that blows nobody good. The proverb may be somewhat musty, but its truth is exemplified in the matter of the late sale of the Ferry dues between North and South Brisbane. ; If the high price given should cause a loss to the lessee, it will be a pity ; but, as Brisbane is entitled to the benefits derivable from the expenditure of the £150, the public generally, will, have no cause to regret that the sum was not smaller. The in- habitants should now consider what por tions of the ferry approaches most need repair, and make immediate application   to the government upon the subject.     There is jipjjieed, of Radical spouting, or     of any of that clamorous " agitation" which is ,so-mTich .in favour with some persons. Recent events have proved that trié Govefnor'is sincerely desirous of com- p...

BRITISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 January 1849

BRITISH EXTRACTS. Lang on Landlords.-The principal inn at Ipswich, for it is not the only one, is kept by Mr George Thorn, a veteran soldier, formerly super- intendent of the Government herds in the neigh bourhood. For the style and manner in which it is kept, it would bear a favourable comparison with many in England. There was one circumstance indeed, in which it was remaikably different from any English inn in which I have ever had the usual " warm welcome" of these establishments ; for on asking for my bill before returning to Brisbane, I was told that I had nothing to pay. I had experienced the same thing from a country- man of my own at Port Phillip, the 'opposite extremity of the colony, upwards of eleven hundred miles distant, only a few months before ; but as there was considerable political excitement in the latter district at that period, with which I was somewhat connected, it did -not take me so much h   by surpise.-Lang's Cooksland"   &amp...

I have, tlierefoie, made it my especial business to inquire particularly into a system'wheiein the public in- terest is so immediately involved, and find that, on the day the roster was formed (and which was done with closed doors), some dissentient gentle- men declared that they would not be bound b"y the proposed arrangement, but would attend when they chose.

BRITISH EXTRACTS. The Poisonings in Essex.- On Monday last the- inquiry concerning the murder of Thomas Ham, who died from the effects of arsenic alleged to have been administered by his wife, now Han- nah Southgate, was resumed in the school-room, Tendring. before Mr. Codd.thc coroner for North Essex. It has already been mentioned that the police of the district have made such discoveries us to leave little doubt that a honible system of poisoning has been going on in this district for Mint time past. The poisoner Mary May, who wat executed at Chelmsford a few weeks since for poisoning her brother atWix, is said to have been implicated in all the suspected cases more or less ; and it seems that tile authorities arc only waiting the result of this investigation to direct the neces- sary judicial inquiries.

VARIETIES. An American editor and printer offers to'sell his whole establishment for a clean shirt and a meal of victuals, He says he ' has lived upon promises till his very whiskers have stopped growing. A contemporary says-" It is a fact that the demand for the letter Q is so great that the type- founders are doing little else but casting it. So many Esquires have found their way into print, that the printers have been thrown out of their calculations altogether, and the supply is not adequate to the demand. If, therefore, gentlemen happen to find themselves dubbed plain Mr;, they will know the reason. '. No man can do anything against his will," said a metaphysician. " Faith," said Pat, " I had a brother who went to Botany Bay against his will, faith did he !" " I live in Julia's eyes," said an affected dandy in Colman's hearing. .'

BRITISH EXTRACTS. Effects of Savage Life.-May 6, 1842. Early this morning I despatched our two blacks and one of this tribe with a letter to Bracefield. He could not read, but one of the blacks mentioned my name to him when he gave him the letter, and he started instantly to join us, accompanied by three of his tiibe-his adopted father, and two of his friends. About eleven o'clock the blacks ob- served them coming, about five miles off, and Mr. Johffe, myself, Joseph Russell, and the black- fellow went along the beach to meet them. Brace field, when we met him, had the same appearance as the wild blacks ; 1 could only recognise him as a European-from having known him before. When I spoke to him he could not answer me for some time ; his hearfc was full, and tears flowed, and the language did not come ready to him. His first expression was to thank me for being the means of bringing him back to the society of white men again. He was anxious to hear about the settlement', and'whether ...
