THE FATE OF KENNEDY'S EXPEDITION. From the Sydney Morning Herald. The expedition left Sydney about ten months since, and were landed at Rockingham Bay at the end of May, and took their departure from the coast on the 2nd June. The party consisted of Mr. E. B.

Niblett, James Luff, Edward Tay- lor, William Costigan, William Goddart, Dunn, and Jackey, an aboriginal black.

At first starting, the ground was so scrubby that it was impossible to make way through it, and Mr. Kennedy had to proceed on a south-west course for nearly five weeks before he was able to stand to the northward; the country was so very im- practicable...

DISEASE IN SHEEP. To the Editor of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 24 March 1849

*v DISEASE IN SHEEP. To the Editor of tine Maitland Mercury. Sir,-Amongst the consequences of the free-trade system, it appears that, along with cheap conti- nental goods and cheap live stock imported into Britain, a new disease has been also introduced, gratis, affecting sheep more particularly ; and its .ravages bave asaumed so alarming a-character, .that the subject was considered worthy a parlia- mentary , inquiry, by order of her Majesty's Council. This disease in domestic animals puts on all appearances of the small-pox in the human family. On sheep it is only a variety of the cow-pox, chicken-pox, and similar to that which also attacks horses and pigs ; when it assumes a putrescent ?form, ho disease can be more loathsome. French veterinary surgeons divide the variola ovina into two distinct types-the " mild" and the " malig- nant." Under the first they consider that there are three marked stages, which last about three months ; but the intensity of the " malignant" variety is...

GOVERNMENT BOUNTIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 24 March 1849

GOVERNMENT BOUNTIES. At the present time, the following republication of the government regulations respecting the bounties to be given for introducing1 labourers skilled in manufactures foreign to Great Britain, ,may be interesting : Colonial Secretary's Office, Sydney, 7th April, 1847. Whereas, by reason of the difference of climate and soil, many commodities producible in this colony, such as wine, oil, silk, 8cc, are not pro- duced in the United Kingdom, and the skilled labourers requisite for their culture or manufac- ture cannot in consequence be obtained by the colony from the mother-country ; and whereas it is deemed expedient to afford to such of the colo- nists as may desire to employ their land and capital in the production of such commodities as aforesaid, the means of providing themselves with the re- quired labourers from such foreign countries as can supply them : His Excellency the Governor j directs it to be notified that, subject to the approval of her Majesty's Go...

BRITISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 24 March 1849

BRITISH EXTRACTS. Singular Discovery.-A correspondent of the Buffalo Express, writing under date of June 14. from Ontonagon. Lake Superior, says:-"Mr. Knapp, of the Vulcan Mining Company, has lately made some very singular discoveries here, in working one of the veins which he lately found. He worked into an old cave, which had been ex- cavated centuries ago. This led the workmen to look for other works of the same sort, and they have found a number of sinks in the earth, which they have traced a long distance. By digging into those sinks they find them to have been made by the hand of man. It appears that the ancient miners went on a different principle from what they do at the present time. The greatest depth yet found in these holes is thirty feet ; after get- ting down to a certain depth, they drifted along the vein, making an open cut. These cuts have been filled nearly to a level, by the accumulation of soil, and wo find trees of the largest growth stand- ing in this gutter ; ...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. °f .-UNITED PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH. On Wednesday evening last, a meeting of those who have worshipped in the Court House for the last few Sabbaths, was held in North Brisbane, for the purpose of making arrangements to seem o a continuance of the Rev. Mr. Stewart's ministr.i tmus. Mr. J. Richardson, who was called to the ch.iiv, said, that it would be unnecessary, at the present stage of the business of the evening, to detain the meeting with preliminary observations. They were all acquainted with the object of the meeting, and therefore" he would call upon Mr. Stewart to address them. ^ , Mr. Stewart, after a short prayer, stated to the meeting his views, and the extent to which he was prepared to meet theirs. The position which the » reverend - gentleman assumed was creditable to himself,-certainly he reflected no dishonour upon the Baptist denomination. He makes no com- promise of principle ; and .yet, bora in the bosom of the Presbyterian Church, educated in p...

SUMMARY OF GENERAL NEWS. (Abridged from the latest papers.) On the 2nd of October last a man in a boat, having got within the influence of the rapids above Niagara falls, was carried over the precipice, within view of several persons who were watching for half an hour his struggles to save himself, without having the power to assist him. Re- ferring to the recently-published account, authen- ticating the existence of the sea serpent, Mr. Stirling, a gentleman many years resident in Norway, has sent a letter to the Secretary of the Admiralty, confirming the fact that such animals are occasionally seen ; not only by the evidence of the Norwegian fishermen, but also from his own   observation.---Two children, of the respective   ages of twelve and nine years, the sons of a hut- keeper named Minsey, residing on a station called Bunnaby, in the Goulburn district, were acci- dentally drowned in a water-hole on the 21st ult., having been sent by their father with ...

'' It has been solemnly proclaimed in' Syd- ney that the nineteenth century is not .only an age of great civilisation, but also 'that it is destined to witness the triumph of Democracy-as if Democracy had never before held its sholl-lived triumphs. The anticipated victory only appeals at present as a shadowy and unsubstantial conclu- sion. It seems to be hoped from the " present state of Europe," more than -anything else. The ciavmg has probably been inspired by the blissful condition of France, which has purchased - rather dearly--the right to be governed by some millions of irresponsible Sovereigns ; and has perhaps gained strength from the .glorious tnumphs recently perfected at 'Vienna.

" Well," replied Bill," I aint often much alone, I commonly have my legs and fists with me." The late Sergeant Onslow was changing horses one day at the White Horse, Reigate, when the landlady persisted in addressing the learned coun- sel as " captain."

MR. KENNEDY'S EXPEDITION. (Prom Bell's Life in Sydney, March 10.) In another part ot our paper we nave given an abridged account of this unfortunate expedition, the circumstances and melancholy result of which, we consider, render it imperative .upon us to oiler a few remarks upon the manner in which it was originally planned and conducted, the more so as we believe that the usual routine of official pro- ceeding was departed from on this occasion, and the chief direction assumed by a different branch of the service to that under which Mr. Kennedy was employed. The whole of the proceedings evince an utter absence of precaution and fore- thought, and the requisite theoretical knowledge. The impossibility of success is, indeed, so clearly demonstrable from materials within every one's reach, that if men could be found inconsiderate enough to make theA attempt,it is perfectly incon- ceivable how any-ftiperiors to whom it might be submitted, should be thoughtless enough to sanc- tion it...
