THE CAUSES OF THE FAILURE OF THE IRISH REBELLION, AS STATED BY ONE OF THE REBELS. (From the New York Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 5 May 1849

THE CAUSES OF THE FAILURE OF THE IRISH REBELLION, AS STATED BY ONE OF THE REBELS. T-Frotn the New York Morning Herald. J DEAR SIR,-Several gentlemen of this city, who have long felt a deep interest in the affairs of Ireland (of which number you have not been the least active), desire that I should give some public explanation of the causes which led to the unex- pected failure of tlie late revolutionary movement in that country. I feel bound to meet their wishes, as. being theirs, and for this other reason, that no honest statement of the matter can be made at present in Ireland, where tlie right of meeting and the liberty of the press have been both annihilated by the British authorities. Were it not my fortune to arrive in your city, I should have felt it my duty to have made the Executive Directory of New York the medium Of this statement. But, being detained here, and hearing- so many anxious in- quiries daily made, I have yielded to the general desire to make it public without ...

THE [?]oreton [?]ap Courier. SATURDAY, MAY 5, 1849. THE IMMIGRATION BY THE CHASELEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 5 May 1849

THE ¿Bofetón 33a» Couráer. SATURDAY, MAY 5, 1849. ; THE,IMMlGRATION BY TUECHASBLEY. IÛÎ consequence of instructions from the Colonial Government, in pursuance of or- ders from the office of the'»Secretary of State, the Police Magistrate was not at liberty to incur any expense in removing the immigrants by the Chaseley from the ship to' Brisbane. It was therefore ar- ranged, we believe, on the guarantee of Mr. Richardson, that the passengers should pay this charge themselves, at a ceitain rate per head. The Raven steamboat left Brisbane yesterday morning, and returned in the afternoon with about fifty-of the immigrants, who have for the present-been accommodated in the old Bauack build- ing. It was fortunate that a greater de- gree of foresight had been exercised here than has been exhibited in London ; for if those-buildings had not been withdrawn from the government sale, the case would indeed have been bad, as there is not a house to Jbe let in Brisbane. The newly ariived colonist...

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 5 May 1849

COLONIAL EXTRACTS. THE LATE MR. KBKNEDY.-I am given to un- derstand that Captain Simpson, of the Freak, has been invested by the Government with a discre-   tionary power as to his mode of proceeding in the . attempt to recover the remains of poor Kennedy, and the other matters left behind belonging to the party. There is no doubt that a very proper man has been selected for the purpose, as, independently ; of his other qualifications, Captain Simpson is a scientific man,and will doubtless procure a variety of botanical and other specimens. With the ex-   ception of the ship's crew, Captain Simpson has no companions in his undertaking, except Jackey Jackey, and another aboriginal, a relative of the   latter. It is, I believe, Captain S.'s intention, if he succeeds in finding Kennedy's bones, to remove them and inter them on Albany Island, marking   the spot by some rude monument.-Sydney Cor-   respondent of the Melbour...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH.   (From our Correspondent.)     WEDNESDAY, MAY 2.-The Bench was occupiedv to-day in hearing cases for petty debts. The pre- siding Magistrates were Major North and Dr. Dorsey. Thomas Moore v. John Frost.-For £8 14s. 4d. Verdict for plaintiff by default. Archibald M'Ñeil v. S. Otoens.-In this case the plaintiff claimed wages due as a tutor for nine weeks, at the rate of £20 per annum ; and dama- ges for the detention of clothes, Sec. The Bench decided that they could not enter into the last claim, but gave a verdict for the wages. Archibald Young v. Sterling Minor, and Ditto v. Ditto.-These cases arose out of Mr. Young having made an exchange of two bullocks with the defendant ; one, however, being a little lame, plaintiff lent Minor one of his very best working bullocks for four days, Minor leaving the lame one in its stead, which eventually took to the bush.

AUDI ALTERAM PARTEM. To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 5 May 1849

AUDI ALTERAM PARTEM. To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. SIR,—Permit me once more to make a few observa- tions respecting Cleveland Point, in reply to an assertion contained in the letter published in your last week's paper, under the signature of " T."   Your correspondent states that Sir George Gipps, after a personal inspection, pronounced it a suitable site for a commercial town. As I do not know the party who has ventured to make this statement, nor whether he was in the district at the time the late Governor arrived in the Shamrock, I am un- able to ascertain by what means he obtained his information. If he means that Sir George Gipps expressed such an opinion immediately after he inspected the locality in question, and during his stay in Brisbane, I am prepared to give the most positive denial to his assertion, and to prove, by the testimony of several persons, when his Excel- lency did me the honour to converse with me on the subject, that he publicly decl...

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. SIR,—In your last issue I observe a letter signed " T.," in which the writer has taken great pains to compare the statements given by Mr. Petrie on previous occasions, as to the capabilities of Cleve- land Point as a shipping port, &c. ; but, although I have every reason to believe he has frequently been there himself, " T." has taken care not to make known the conclusion he arrived at from his own first inspection of the place, nor the causes that induced him to change it. He quotes the opinion of a late distinguished officer, which I should be sorry to make any remarks on, were it not entirely at variance with the opinions made known by that gentleman when here. The late Sir George Gipps and suite did make a personal inspection of Cleveland Point in 1842, previous to his coming to Brisbane ; and there are at present living witnesses in Brisbane, who were there with him, and can testify the fact, that he disapproved of the place alt...

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. SIR,-In your paper of last Saturday, I observe two advertisements, on the subject of certain pro- perly at Ipswich, which has been advertised for sale by Mr. John Connolly. Those advertise- ments are both headed, " Caution to the Public. M'Pherson v. Nicol ;" and one is signed by " Patrick Nicol," while the other purports to bear my signature. With reference to the last paragraph in Mr. Nicol's advertisement, stating that I " never have given Mr. Adams a single fee excepting a glass of grog ;" that I " never authorised the present proceedings ;" and that, on being applied to for money lo carry on the case, I " politely told the applicant to go to the d-," for I would .. have nothing to do with it ;" I entirely disclaim these statements so fur as I am concerned, and distinctly deny that I have ever given authority for my name to be used in any such a manner. If I have not paid any fees to Mr. Adams, it is all the more credit- able to his libe...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. SMALL 'DEBTS COURT. MO.NDAÍ, 7TH MAY, 1849. EEFOEE THE COMMISSIONER \ND DA. BALLOW. Salvator Diácono v. John Connolly.-Plain- tiff, who is a farm tenant to Mr. A. S. Lyon, of New Farm, sold a load of hay and one of horse bedding to the defendant, He had been paid for the hay, but now sued for 7s., being the price of the bedding. ' For the defence, it was urged that the amount (£1 5s;) paid to the plaintiff was in full of both accounts, viz., £1 tot the hay, and 5s. for the bedding, Mr. Lyon stated that he made out the bill at Diacono's request, and, to the best of his recollection» it did not Include any charge for bedding. As the defendant could not produce a receipt-the same having been, as he believed, mislaid-the Court gave a judgment for the plaintiff. It seemed plain that there was some misunderstanding between the parties upon the subject of the payment that had previously been made. ' Diácono v.

COLONIAL EXTRA CTS. CONSEQUENCES OF TRANSPORTATION. To the Editor of the Cornwall Chronicle. SIR,-I know not whether you have lost sight of the following, in the South Australian papers, but as the Adelaide magistracy evince a systematic antipathy to persons arriving from Van Diemen's Land, I think it would be as well for the people of this colony to be made acquainted with that fact on every possible occasion. At the Annual Li- censing Meeting of the Justices on the 12th and 13th of March, the following applications for li- censes were heard (among others).
