Sir,-I have the honour to acknowledge your despatch, No. l8, of the IStli "January last, ac- companied by the repoi tof a Committee of Council on the Minimum Price of Land. Î need not say that I shall always receive with respect any report emanating from a committee of the Legislative Council ; and, in any matter peculiar to New South Wales, the superior knowledge whicji,^they can. command of circumstances oh the spot would lend double weight to their authority. It must be re- membered, however, that the present is not a question of pure local concern, and still less of recent experience.

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 24 February 1849

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. THE NEW SETTLERS.-NO instructions have yet been received upon the subject of the claims made by Dr. Lang on behalf of the passengers by the Fortitude, and we scarcely anticipate anything satisfactory until advices are received from Eng- land. It seems strange that no further informa- tion has reached us by the Walter Morrice, which vessel did not leave England until nearly seven weeks after the Fortitude. At all events, the passengers are fully entitled to land to the amount of their passage money, and,whether Dr. Lang is successful or not in organising the Company, their claims rest upon their own merits. Several of the young men who came out in the vessel have   accepted engagements in the bush, as was their previous intention. The deputation appointed with Mr. Pettigrew, to obtain a general knowledge of the country on the banks of the Brisbane, has been actively engaged during the past week. This energy on the part of the passengers shows well ...

The most important items will be found amongst our extracts. The Queen was at Windsor. The spread of the cho- lera in London was beginning to excite alarm, and the prayer in time of pestilence was ordered by the Archbishop of Can- terbury to be read in the churches. The Lisbon authorities had proclaimed the British ports infected, and all vessels ar- riving thence would be placed in quaran- tine. We hope that our own suggestion with regard to Moreton Bay is not for- gotten.' Lord Clarendon had been to London, to attend a Cabinet Council, at'which the fate of the convicted State prisoners was decided. ? All those found guilty of high treason will be transported for life, and it is belieyed that a general' amnesty will then be granted to the remaining prisoners. Writs of error, on various grounds, have been allowed in...

The following account of the murder of Count Latour, the Austrian Minister of War, on the 6lh of October last, is abridged from Bell's Messen- ger, into which ¡t is copied from a Vienna paper : The second batallion of an Austrian regiment having been ordered by Latour to march against the Hungarians, and to support the .Croats, refused to do so. The Government troops were then arrayed against the mutineers, and, after an in ellëctuàl attempt at mediation on the part of some of the,National Guards, which ended in their siding with the mutineers, General Breda, who commanded on the part of the Government, gave the order to fire, but had scarcely done so when he was shot dead. The remaining incidonts we give verbatim, premising that an immense,crowd of persons, variously armed, had in the meantime joined the mutinous soldiers .- " Then came the combat. The people captured four cannons, two of which were carried into the city, w...
