TELEGRAPHIC DESPATCH. (From our Windmill Reporter.) STRANGE TRICK OF THE IMAGINATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 7 April 1849

TELEGRAPHIC DESPATCH. {From our Windmill Reporter.J STRANGE TRICK OF THE IMAGINATION. ON Wednesday last, the tide surveyor of Customs, happened to be strolling down Queen Street, pondering probably on the great degeneracy of the present age, so far as regards the desire to drink grog without paying theduty, and whistling to himself the popular air of " Will Watch, the bold smuggler, that famed lawless fellow," in whose days there were good chances afforded of an occa- sional prize:-on a sudden he saw a very suspi- cious looking case of brandy lying outside Mr. Dowse's door. I have said that the case (in both senses) looked suspicious, but it would be difficult to say how. The wooden case bore a strong re- semblance to a perfectly honest one, and the name of the benevolent " Clouzeau" looked as if it was quite at home on it. I have^smi plenty of such cases, and assisted to empty them, but yet there was an indescribable something about this article that fixed the tide surveyor's regar...

AUDI ALTERAS! PARTE». , TO "A SQUATTER." (Per favour of the Moreton Bay Courier-J SIR,-You have so far thrown aside 'the mask of your disguise, as to acknowledge that I was cor- rect in my surmise, that the author of the attack on the Drayton Bench of Magistrates was the prosecutor in the case referred to in my former letter. Having'then established this fact, I will not imbitter the gratification, which you so evi dently-have derived from the perusal of.your own production, by any personal allusions to your private character, further than may be necessary in vindicating.what I have already written ; suffice it for me-to know the author of the attack, for the public to be personally introduced to their champion. Tbose-who undertake to perform a public duty, are, doubtless, responsible to the public for their acts : if they err, they have no choice, they are liable to be attacked, and are bound to render an account of their conduct. The public accuser in such cases, however,-the one ...

SMALL DEBTS COURT. BEFORE THE COMMISSIONER AND DR. BALLOW. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 7 April 1849

SMALL DEBTS COURT. BEFORE THE COMMISSIONER AND DR. BALLOW. Lord v. Pearce.-Mr. Adams appeared for the plaintiff. This was a claim for balance of account for drying and re-packing wool pursuant to in- structions. The event out of which the question arose occurred about two years ago, and the case has been adjourned from time to time ; or re- opened in another form. The present plaint de- clared that J. C. Pearce was indebted to Edward 1....1 :" n.v. oum of £9 12s. 6d., for woik and labour done. Defendant did not appear ; but it was proved for the plaintiff that in 1847, when the cause of action arose, Mr. Pearce was pro- prietor of the Experiment steamer; Mr. A. Campbell being his authorised agent, with full power to act in all matters connected with that vessel, without reference to his principal. Certain bales of wool were delivered on the wharf at Ipswich, for shipment to Brisbane by the Ex~ périment. Mr. Campbell being absent at the time, Mr. Horsman, who was acting for him, took...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 7 April 1849

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. CFrom our Correspondent. J WEDNESDAY, MARCH 23.-I consider it imperative upon me once' more to1 call public attention to the very reprehensible neglect of the magistrates of our Bench in the performance of their duties. IK beg leave again to remind those gentlemen that in accepting the commission of the peace they took upon themselves one of the most solemn obliga- tions whick can be imposed upon a member-of a community ; the appointments were not compul- sory, but being conferred as an honorary distinc- tion, it was optional with them either to accept or reject them ; in accepting, how can they reconcile their present neglect with the solemn oath they took on the occasion. On the 14th inst., but one magistrate, Mr. Bigge, attended, and to-day only Mr. Uhr : two cases in the Small Debts' Court had, therefore, to be remanded for the third time; thus the plaintiff who resides at Wogaroo, supposing the cases are decided this day fortnight, will have walk...

SUMMARY OF GENERAL NEWS. (Abridged from the latest papers.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 7 April 1849

SUMMARY OF GENERAL NEWS. (Abridged from the latest papers.)   THE Indians at Yucatan have slaughtered 200 Mexican soldiers. Reinforcements had been de- spatched by the government to Jaxcaba, the gar- rison at that place, having been compelled to retreat.-Mr. Thomas Reilly, solicitor, has been appointed taxing officer of the court of chancery, in Ireland. This gentleman is the father of Mr. Thomas Devin Reilly, the writer of that very complimentary letter to Lord Clarendon which appeared in the Irish Felon newspaper.-An insurrection was planned in the capital of Mexico, and an attempt made to put it into execution on the 9th October last. It was suppressed for the pre-   sent. Extensive plots are said to be in progress for the purpose of restoring General Santa Anna to the presidency of the republic. The treasury is almost drained, and the Indians were taking advantage of internal disorders to commit great ravages in parts of the Mexican territories. Robert ...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. RUMOURED SLAUGHTER AT PORT NATAL. (From the Natal Witness, Dec. 27.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 7 April 1849

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. RUMOURED SLAUGHTER AT PORT NATAL. (From the Natal Witness, Dec. 27.)     EXTRACT from a letter dated Natal, Nov. 8 : - "We are in a dreadful state of excitement.     Rumours have been busy for the last week, but now certain news have arrived, that Panda has killed every white man in his country, and several powerful chiefs. All the Caffres in the direction of the Zulu country have fled to the bush. The   country is entirely deserted, and all agricultural   pursuits put a stop to. The whole of the Cape   Cotton Company's people came in yesterday even- ting, together with all the missionaries and other inhabitants in that direction. I rode out to the   other side of Umguni last evening, and found the Caffre men gone to fight. The women in that neighbourhood were coming in droves to the Bay for protection. It is now three A.M., and I am sitting up, lest we should b...

BRITISH EXTRACTS. IRELAND. THE STATE PRISONERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 14 April 1849

BRITISH EXTRACTS. IRELAND. TîIC STATE PRISONERS. On Friday, the 17th November, tlie Court of Queen's Bench, Dublin, was crowded at an early hour, in consequence of its having been very generally known that the prisoners convicted at the late special commission in Clonmel, of high treason, would be brought up at "the sitting of their lordships, by virtue of writs of habeas cor- pus, issued a few days since, to assign error. Long before the usual hour for the full court to sit every available seat was occupied, both by the members of the bar and casual spectators, amongst whom we observed a great number of ladies. The hall and passages to the court were also thronged, but perhaps not to so gicat an extent as might have been expected under the circumstances. The Attorney-General, the Solicitor-General, Messrs. Baldwin,Q.C.Smyley,and David Lynch, appeared as counsel for the Crown ; and Messrs. Whiteside, Q.C., Butt, Q.C., F. Maher, Sir Col man O'Loughlen, Isaac O'Callaghan, Holmes, and ...

SELECT POETRY. THE LAW OF THE CAPTIVE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 14 April 1849

SELECT POETRY.     THE LAY OF THE CAPTIVE. IN his dungeon sits O'Brien, all dishevelled is his hair,     Long his beard, and long the time, too, since a razor has been there. Suddenly upon its hinges slowly turns the door, and see         'T is his jailor, who has brought him in, as usual, his tea.     " Jailor," says O'Brien, " listen while my sorrows I unfold ;     Thou art faithful-trusty-art thou also proof against my gold?" " Yes, I am," replied the jailor, in a manner short and terse, Knowing at the time he did so empty was O'Brien's purse. " Very well," returns O'Brien, " much I joy that thou art true, Though that with the present subject has not got the least to do. I'd not fly-by me your tortures, racks, and thumb-screws are defied,   Seeing that I know for certain they will never be applied. But there's one...

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 14 April 1849

ti THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. ¿ BY a proclamation in the Government Gazette, the first meeting of the second elective Council of New South Wales is fixed for"the 15th day of May next. This announcement is of sufficient importance to demand prominent notice at our hands, and the most serious consideration on the part of the public. If the excitement and inexperience attending a first exercise of elective functions by the colonists were powerful, to excuse a want of-judgment in some instances-if an anxiety for distinc- tion, or any motive less respectable, can be attributed as a cause for ihe acceptance of legislative power by those who after- wards became disgusted with the necessary application-the lapse of seven years has been amply sufficient for the correction of such mistakes on either side. The electors should have been wise enough, on the last occasion, to vote for the men who were best able, and chiefly wishful, to promote the welfare of the whole colony ; and the candidates ma...
