LATEST ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 10 October 1846

LATEST ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. We have received files of English papers by the Urgent to the 20th May. The following are the only items of general interest. By a memorandum dated Colonial Office, May 18, and which appeared in the London Gazette, we observe that no decisive arrangements have been made by the Home Government respecting the new colony ; for on the day Colonel Barney left England, it is notified " that the appointment of Colonel Barney as Lieutenant Governor of North Australia has not yet been carried into effect." The Premier has been severely reproved by the " Fourth Estate" for permitting the Irish Coer- cion Bill to interfere with the progress of his Corn   Bill, which he promised to urge forward in ad- vance, and to the exclusion, of other business. It is probable that the fault (if it be one) was forced upon him by deference for the opinion of his potent colleague, the Duke, who, perhaps, in- sisted on the strict observance of etiquette towards the Hous...

COLONIAL ABSTRACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 10 October 1846

COLONIAL ABSTRACT. An individual of the Melbourne tribe of abori- ginal natives had been barbarously murdered in the vicinity of Melbourne, by a party of the Goul- burn tribe : the object of the murder was to ob- tain the kidney fat of the victim as a trophy.-A country, capable of running 50,000 sheep, has been discovered at Cook's Peninsula, South Austra- lia.-The Swan River Packet, from Hobart Town to Geelong, conveyed 48 male, and 2 female emigrants to the latter place for the Geelong Im- migration Society. About twenty of these men were engaged on the day of their arrival at an average rate of wages, from £22 to £24 per annum.-Hunting appears to be the rage at Gee- long, and hunt balls and hunt dinners were taking place.-The Port Phillip Irish relief fund amounts to upwards of £1090, and subscriptions from the country districts are still coming in.-The curing of colonial pork for exportation has been com- menced in Van Diemen's Land.-The measures of the whole of the publicans of...

SHIPPING IN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 17 October 1846

SHIPPING INTELLIGENCE.               The New Steamer " Phoenix."-The Phoenix made her first trial trip on the 23rd ultimo, which,   although a short one, was highly successful. She started from Struth's Wharf, in Cockle Bay, and   proceeded round the Sow and Pigs, and back, which was completed in one hour and eight mi- nutes. Her machinery answered admirably, and     her speed appeals to be little inferior to that of the iron boats. Her trial trip was certainly per-   formed in smooth water ; but from her model, and the manner in which she displaced the water, her builders and owners express themselves highly confident that she will prove a first-rate sea-boat.     Her boilers are new, but the engines originally belonged to the Sophia Jane, ten horse extra power having been added. The Phoenix will commen...

EPITAPH WRITTEN AT A CONVICT'S SOLITARY GRAVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 17 October 1846

EPITAPH WRITTEN AT A CONVICT'S SOLITARY GRAVE. Here silently rests, in his lone narrow bed, The ashes of one who was nurtured in crime ; From its clay-moulded mansion the spirit has fled, And left its abode for a time. In his last dying moments no hand smooth'd his pillow,   No friend was there nigh to weep o'er his bier, Or plant at his head the green drooping-willow, As a lasting memorial of one that was dear. An exile, an outcast, despised and unpitied, Expelled from his country, in bondage to live, In this far distant land, he died unregretted, Depriv'd of the pleasures that friendship can   give. A curse on his memory will the tyrant bestow That never has felt for the woes of another ; For his sad fate the tear of compassion will flow From him who regards fellow-man as a brother.   P. S. K. Launceston Examiner.

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 17 October 1846

THE Moreton Bay Courier.     SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1846. In our last number we expressed our opinion that the Government, by exact- ing a higher price for land in this colony than better land is fetching in other places nearer to the great European markets, had rendered waste lands for agricultural pur- poses unsaleable, and that the whole sys- tem of -Sir George Gipps -was an error in political economy, and that his regulations have been productive of the most baneful effects to this district in particular. When we reflect upon the number of persons who annually emigrate to these colonies without any definite views as to their ultimate proceedings, and also find that the greater portion of those who em- bark in agricultural and pastoral pursuits scarcely know a ploughshare from a hay- fork, much less a Leicester or Southdown sheep from a Merino, it is more surprising to find so many become extensive and successful flockmasters, than to hear oc- casionally ...

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 17 October 1846

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier, Sir,-For the information of the " squatting world," 1 forward you a note of what I believe to be an effectual cure for sheep, bitten by the native dog, and which you may possibly consider worthy of publication. The experiment I found to answer in one instance, and it has been tried by a neighbour, who also found the plan efficacious. Last month I had twenty sheep badly bitten   having found corrosive sublimate blue stone, &c, to have failed in several instances-I dressed these sheep in the following manner :-in the first instance, I opened the wound with the knife as far as possible ; 1 then soaked a piece of tow or wool in turpentine, to which 1 set fire, and applied the same, when burning, to the wound. 1 may as well remark, that I allowed the wool, saturated with turpentine, to burn to a cinder in the wound. 1 dressed eighteen sheep out of the twenty-one very slightly bitten, and which I did not think necessary to dre...

Kent, Captain Coley, and Mr. Phelan.

DR. LEICHHARDT'S TESTIMONIAL. ( From the .Australian. ) A Public Meeting of the Subscribers to the Leichhardt Testimonial was held on the 21st ult., at the School of Arts, for the purpose of present- ing the gallant explorer with the public testimonial. Owing to the untoward state of the weather, the meeting was very thinly attended. Shortly before half-past three o'clock, Dr. Nicholson, the Speaker of the Legislative Council, who had been requested to preside on the occa- sion, introduced Dr. Leichhardt, who was warmly greeted. Dr. Nicholson then addressed them as follows : The duty has been assigned to me of presenting to you, on behalf of a numerous body of colonists, an acknowledgment of the grateful sense they enter- tain of the services rendered by you to the cause of science and to the interests of this colony. Whilst 1 fully participate in the admiration with which your merits are universally acknowledged, I confess that I shrink from the task now imposed   upon...

COLONIAL. ISSUE OF DEPASTURING LICENSES. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 17 October 1846

COLONIAL. ISSUE OF DEPASTURING LICENSES. ( From the Sydney Morning Herald. ) Although the Squatting Question will probably stand in abeyance until next year, we ought not to overlook a paper on that subject printed by order of the Council four months ago, containing information never, we believe, so circumstantially made public before. It is a " Return of all depasturing Licenses in the several Districts of the Commissioners of Crown Lands beyond the boundaries of location ; distinguishing the names of the occupiers, and the amount paid for such licenses by each indivi- dual, during the year commencing 1st July, 1845, and ending the 30th June, 1846." The Return does not quite correspond with its title, for instead of embracing the whole year, it reaches only to the 18th of May, and is made up to three different periods, 31st December, 20th March, and 18th May. As the particulars given to the end of last year   may serve to throw some new light upon the re- turn of live ...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 24 October 1846

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. The Cornwall Chronicle states that " Advice has been received from England of the appoint- ment by Her Majesty, of Major General William F. P. Napier to the command of the Forces in the Australian Colonies ; the arrival of this distin- guished officer may be daily expected ; it is ru- moured that Hobart Town will be head quarters, and that General Napier will be also the Governor of this colony ; as a few days will, in all proba- bility, decide the matter, it is not worth while to hazard an opinion on it." The following notice has appeared in the New South Wales Government Gazette: - " The Queen having been graciously pleased to appoint His Honor Charles Joseph La Trobe, Esquire, to the temporary administration of the government of Van Diemen's Land ; His Excellency the Gover- nor, in virtue of the authority vested in him, un- der Her Majesty's commission, is pleased to ap- point William Lonsdale, Esquire, to undertake the duties of Superintendent of the District ...

ODE ON TOBACCO.   While in this world of care and grief The pipe can yield a sweet relief,     And when the mind is on the rack, O,     What can sooth like best tobacco ? Its airy fumes with rapture fire       The poet while he woes the lyre,   And bears his soul with genius fraught, Above the earth, on lofty thought       'Tis famed alike in verse and story,   Beloved by youths and sages hoary. Though prejudice its curse may hurl Against the weed-behold its curl In graceful circles winding high, Imparting rare felicity ; Begone, ye bigots who would say   It is the nuisance of the day. For did ye once but taste the charm. It would unworthy doubt disarm, And to your gazing eye unfold Elysian mysteries untold.     Give me tobacco pure and ripe,     &a...
