TELEGRAPHIC DESPATCH. (From our Windmill Reporter.) STRAY LEAVES FROM THE NOTE-BOOK OF A "NEW CHUM." [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 14 April 1849

TELEGRAPH IC DESPATCH. ! CFrom our Windmill Reporter.J SfRAY LEAVES FROM THE NOTE-BOOK / - ' OF A " NEW CHUM." THE following manuscript scraps are stated to have been found on the road between Drayton and Ipswich : But a fortnight has elapsed since I started to visit the New Country, yet during that time I have acquired the experience of years. I was anxious to behold nature in its pristine and most beautiful form, and information led me to W'end my way to the region of the Baramba and Dawson. The reality surpassed my expec- tations* ! On leaving Craig Range (the highest part of the Darling Downs), the ascent to the Baramba country was fatiguing, from its excessive steep- ness ; and,on arriving at one of the head stations, I was forcibly remiuded of the town of Quito, which is situated in the Andes, 9,400 feet above the level of the sea. It was under the brilliant sun of a summer's afternoon that I first entered on tile steppes of the Baramba, where the piercing chill of the cold, c...

INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 14 April 1849

INDIA, SINCE the publication- of the Indian news con- tained in our last, we have gathered, from our Sydney and Port Phillip papers, intelligence to the 2nd January last. With regard to affairs after the action of Ramnugger, it will be necessary to state that General Sir Joseph Thackwell had been previously despatched with a force of infantry, cavalry, and artillery ; with instructions to cross the river Chenab, at a certain point, and remain on the defensive until a junction was effected with the forces under Lord Gough. Being unable to find any ford at the place indicated, Sir Joseph proceeded to Wuzeerabad, where the passage was effected. Having remained here until the firing was heard fiom the neighbourhood of Ramnugger, Sir Joseph commenced his march on the 2nd of December, and continued it next morning until twelve o'clock ; when the enemy appeared in great force before them, and commenced a cannonade, with the evident intention of turning the English flank. General Thackwell,...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 14 April 1849

DtfW^!l?¿TELLlGEV¿EáiV . "?*' V IPSWICH:* - "'/ (From our Correspondent. J WEDNESDAY, APRIL 11TH.-The proceedings at the Police-office were opened to-day, before Messrs. Simpson and Dorsey. Edward Elliott was charged by the chief constable with being a runaway from the Brisbane Hospital since two years ago. The prisoner confessed the fact, and was remanded to Brisbane to be dealt with. Thomas Sexton, charged on suspicion of stealing, and who had been out on bail, did not appear when called upon ; a war- rant was, therefore, issued against him. John Ryan, hired servant to Mr. Thomas Coutts, was next charged with disobedience of orders to Mr. Donald Coutts, brother of his employer. In de- fence, the prisoner denied the right of the prose- cutor to controul bim, as his agreement was not with him, but with-" Thomas," as he called him. The Bench differed fiom him, and did not seem to approve of his familiar manner of naming his employer. At the interposition of the prosecutor, however, R...

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 14 April 1849

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. THE EMIGRANT SHIP 'STEDFAST.'-We have perused, with surprise and regret, a statement which Mr. Wyer has published, complaining of the arbitrary conduct of Captain Browne, of the Water Police, in reference to Mr. W.'s request to be allowed to convey a supply of clean linen and other necessaries to a family who arrived by the     ill-omened Stedfast on Monday last. Mr. Wyer's statement is as follows :-" A friend of mine, with his wife and children, arrived here on Monday, cabin passengers by the emigrant ship Stedfast, and conceiving that, in the distressing state of the vessel, a supply of clean linen, camphor, soap, &C, would be the most acceptable luxuries I could send down to the quarantine ground, I applied at the Water Police Office for permission to send the same, and was told that there would be no objec- tion. I accordingly packed up a small box-full, and took it to the office, when I was told by Capt. Browne that he would ...

FACETIÆ. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 14 April 1849

FACETIAE, " Much remains unsung," as the tomcat said when the brickbat cut short his serenade. A cute Yankee has invented a nest, in the bot- tom of which there isa kind of trap door, through which the egg when laid, immediately drops ; and the hen, looking round and perceiving none, soon lays another.' We are always boasting that " England stands alone in the world." We really think that Eng- land is the only country in the world that does stand a loan-and never gets paid for it.-Punch. How much can you pay us-what can you   offer in the pound !" demanded the importunate creditors of a bankrupt farmer. " Alas, gentle- men .' (replied the ruined clodpole), all I really have in the pound is a donkey! A witty lawyer once jocosely asked a boarding house keeper the following questions :-" Mr.-, if a man gives you 500 dollars to keep for him, and dies, what do you do ? Do you pray for him ?" " No, sir," replied Mr.-, " I pray for another like him." There is nothing more dist...

AUSTRIA.—ABDICATION OF THE EMPEROR. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 21 April 1849

t AUSTRIA.-ABDICATION OF THE EMPEROR.   THE Emperor of Austria has astonished his sub- jects by voluntarily resigning the Imperial dignity at the moment when the success of his troops bade fair to consolidate his power. His brother, the Archduke Francis Charles, has waived his right of succession, and the crown ,is expressly ceded to the Archduke Francis Joseph, son of the latter, and who has assumed the Imperial throne, under the title of Francis Joseph, the First. The new   Emperor is only eighteen years of age and is said to be popular. He has addressed a proclamation! to the insurgent Hungarians, and Prince Wind- ischgratz has been directed to suspend the military operations, against them, until, their reply can be received. The following official documents, con- firming the abdication, appeared in the Times, having been translated by the Vienna correspond- ent of that journal : In the name of the most Holy Trinity. This is to certify, that on the 2nd d...

PROCLAMATION OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE FRENCH REPUBLIC. (From the Times, December 22.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 21 April 1849

PROCLAMATION OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE FRENCH REPUBLIC. CFrom the Times, December 22.) AT two o'clock on Wednesday, orders were for- warded by the Government to the colonels of the 24th regiment of infantry and of two regiments of dragoons to march their corps towards the National Assembly. At three o'clock two batta- lions of the former and a battalion of Gardes Mo- bile, preceded by a detachment of .National Guards, entered the garden of the Tuileries, and advanced to the gate of the Place de la Concorde, a general, accompanied by his aide-de-camp, and escorted by a few lancers, taking his station close to the Obelisk. In the mean time the i quays adjoining the palace were 'lined with dragoon». The pre- sence of these troops, which nobody could account for, created much uneasiness, though in some groups a report circulated that the Assembly waa about to proclaim the President of the Republic. It appears that the Government, on being in- formed that a demonstration was intended on th...

THE European intelligence received by the Elizabeth Jane's mail is of a highly important character, as will be seen on reference to our extracts.
