NORTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 12 December 1846
NORTH AUSTRALIA. OUR readers are no doubt acquainted with the fact, that the Cornubia steamer, which conveyed Colonel Barney and suite to Port Curtis, in quest of a site whereon to establish the new Convict Colony, has returned to Sydney, without accom- plishing the object intended, farther than ascertaining that Port, Curtis is ad- mirably adapted for the purpose, from the superiority of the harbour, which is said to resemble Port Jackson in many particulars. Port Curtis is situated about three hun j dred miles to the north of Moreton Bay, t and is in latitude 33° 51' south, and lon j gitude 151° 30' east ; its position, there- fore, does not sufficiently approach the ¡ tropics to affect the constitutions of Euro- peans, and this circumstance would render its locality unexceptionable, were there an abundance of water to be obtained ; but owing to the want of energy, or the incapacity of the parties entrusted with the expedition, no water was found, and strong doubts existas to ther...

THE MOUNTAIN STILL; OR, ADELINE THE SOMNAMBULIST. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 19 December 1846
THE MOUNTAIN STILL; I OB, ADELINE THE SOMNAMBULIST. ABOUT thirty years ago there resided iii a reme district of the TTighlands of Scotland one Bans Moiris, who, along with his helpmate, and daughter named Adeline, inhabited a curious fashioned Etiucture in the immediate vicinity thc sen. The rude materials of which it was cot posed were rendered necessary from the viole conflicts which it had occasionally to sustain wi the watery clement, and their disposition was reg elated in consequence by a system of architectu peculiar to the genius of its founder. The htif unwieldy masses of granite brought (n to-requisite in its formation, and their singular positiot fhroughotit the building seemed to indica n studied disregard to any particular design i its erection but what was necessarily adopte from its contiguity to the sea. Tho appearance &lt; loopholes, however, at regular intervals, arrests tl attention of thc observer, and induces him to forc( much of his previous reasoning a...

Country News. PORT MACQUARIE. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.] Ist December, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 19 December 1846
Country Wows. 1 |: PORT MACQUARIE. j ? [rnoji otm OWK COBBBSPON DENT .3 I 1st December, 1840. During the. last 18 days we have been visited by a continuency of stormy weather. In five days upwards of seven inches of rain fell, which, although very.much re- quired, being accompanied by heavy winds, had not the anticipated beneficial effect. The oldest; inhabitant of Port Macquarie does not remember the wind blowing for so long a time so boisterously and from the same quarter. On two occasions it veered round to the S. and SSE. for a few hours : every other day it has blown strong gales from NNE to NE. The Mary A nn schooner, in consequence, has been detained in harbour upwards of three weeks, so that by the time her return is expected, an elapse of five weeks or more will have ensued-a period in which news is transmitted from England to America. When taken into consideration that we are distant from Sydney-only 200 miles, some plan could surely be suggested by which at least letters ...
