DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 21 April 1849

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent. ) TUESDAY, 17TH APRIL.-This being the day appointed for the annual Licensing Meeting, four Magistrates attended, viz., Doctors Simpson and Dorsey, and Messrs. Bigge and Burgoyne ; when the following licenses were granted : - Daniel Young, Queen's Arms; Michael Burns, Prince of Wales: Martin Byrnes, Harp of Erin; John Burgess, Half-way House ; John Perryman, Bush Inn; and John Smith, Wogaroo Hotel. The applications of Messrs. Thomas Moore, of the Caledonian, and Elijah Stubbins, of the St. Pa- trick, were refused; in consequence of the premises being in a dilapidated state. Their Worships, in commenting upon those applications, remarked that in future they would require publicans to keep a supply of oaten hay. This is considered rather arbitrary, as the Act merely requires suf- ficient fodder, and not more than one out of twenty of the general run of customers would incur the extra expense of imported hay ; the refusal of the l...

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 28 April 1849

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. iru caí in HORSES TO INDIA.-The revival of this trade, or, in fact, the creation of it, to any considerable «xtent from this colony, renders every information matter of moment. Now that one cargo has gone by the Lord Auckland, another is about to start by the Sea Nymph, and that the Launceston people are busy with their company, weare pleased at being able to lay before our readers an account of sales by the Royal Saxon, kindly furnished by,Captain Addison, himself a considerable ex- porter from New South Wales. The prices are satisfactory on the whole, especially considering the character of the exports and conditions of sale, which are prompt, or a bill at three months bear- ing twelve per cent, interest, the horses to be taken as they are, without engagement. Except- ing three mares, which sold for £20, £22, and £23 each, and are clearly unprofitable,, and one yielding £39, the remainder went for £44 to £84, as an average, while three brought £90, and one ¿105....

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, APRIL 28, 1849. THE STATE OF OUR POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 28 April 1849

Moreton THE ii a y Courier. SATURDAY, APRIL 28, 1849. 1> ai v, THE STATE OF OUR POLICE. c; THE present condition of society in the interior, and.the indications of criminal license which have lately been manifested, call imperatively for immediate measures from the Government foi-,the protection of life and property. Only last week we recorded an act of robbery, committed with all the hardihood which arises from, long impunity. Two'armed ruffians, in open daylight, came to a station on the Mcin- tyre brook, and forcibly carried off two horses and some other property. In our details of domestic incidents this day will be found another narration of lawless dar- ing. A peaceful traveller is assaulted and robbed on the public highway, and, but for the courage of a private individual, the offenders might still have been ranging the country, to the terror and danger of honest men. A short time ago a most bloodthirsty assault was committed in the town of Ipswich, and the person who was ...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 28 April 1849

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. A MAN-TRAP.-We beg to call the attention of the authorities to the well at the back of the mili- tary barrack, which is suffered to remain entirely open and exposed, to the great peril of children by day, and of all persons by night. We do not know whose duty it is to enclose it, but the safety of the public demands that some person should do so without delay. SANITORY REFORM.-We have to acknowledge the receipt of a pamphlet on this subject, from the pen of Mr. John Stephens, editor of the Adelaide Observer and the South Australian Register. The author has entered very fully into an exposi- tion of the evils attendant upon insufficient drain- age, and an inadequate supply of water ; and very .sensibly urges*the wisdom of healthful precautions "being taken, amongst an in«casing population, before the consequences of neglect aie made mani- fest in disease and death. Besides, we fully agree "with Mr." Stephens, that the sooner vigorous mea- sures are adopted for'...

" til SIR,-Under the head of " Port of Moreton Bay," you have, in a lengthy article in this morning's paper, introduced Mr. Andrew Petrie as "a sound practical man, and one who has a thorough know- ledge of the bay and river," to rebut what has been asserted as to the capabilities of Cleveland Point for a shipping port, and the commonly received opinion of the impossibility of rendering this river navigable for large vessels. In answer to your questions-" What is your opinion of Cleveland Point ? Do you think a commercial town could be established there ?" Mr. Petrie obligingly answers : - " I do not think it at all suitable for a shipping port. In the first place, there is not any shelter for ves- sels in the roadstead, when the winds are from north, south, or cast. Secondly, the long fetch- es of the sea from the north and south en- trances, and the multi- plicity of ...

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 28 April 1849

To The Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. SIR,—I have been told by several persons, upon whose information I can rely, that the opinions with respect to Cleveland Point and the River Brisbane, which I gave at your request and which appeared in your paper last Saturday, have been contrasted with certain observations of mine which are published in a work written by the Rev. Dr. Lang : and that the dissimilarity of the two state- ments has led to a charge of insincerity on my part, on one or other of those occasions. Under   these circumstances I hope that you will allow me, through the medium of your columns, to explain, for my own sake, these discrepancies, so far as I am able to do so.     The statement in Dr. Lang's work that the memoranda which I gave him on various subjects connected with Moreton Bay were drawn up at his request, is not strictly correct, in the light in which it may be generally understood. I do not mean to accuse the Doctor...

BRISBANE VERSUS CLEVELAND POINT. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 5 May 1849

BRISBANE VERSUS CLEVELAND PÇ-INT. THIS vexatious question is now before the public in.as clear a.light as it is possible to place it, with the'scanty and, in some instances, contradictory information in our possession. The statements which we received in good faith from Mr. Petrie, -the remarks of our correspondent '. T " thereon, and Mr. Petrie1s explanation, have, no doubt, been duly weighed and discussed ; and, in all probability, our readers have arrived at the same conclusion as ourselves, namely, that the subject of the navigation of this river demands the warranty of an official examination and report. If it be true that the late Sir George Gipps expressed himself most favourably of Cleveland Point as a ship- ping port, that fact is another melancholy instance of the neglect or duplicity of the Government ; for the public-were left to conclude that a very different opinion existed, and acted accordingly. It is idle to say that private .individuals .should make themselves full...
