TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 24 October 1846

TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM. THE following important despatch has been re- ceived by His Excellency the Governor from the Secretary of State for the Colonies ; and although marked " private and confidential," His Excel- lency has judged it expedient to submit, the do- cument for the consideration of the Legislative Council : Downing-street, 30th April, 1846. To Governor Sir C. A. Fitz Roy, New South Wales. Sir,-I am desirous that at the commencement of your administrative duties as Governor of New South Wales, you should be possessed, in a form as definite as the state of the case admits, of the views of Her Majesty's Government with regard to the introduction of convicts into that colony. You are aware that the practice has, for some years past, been to exclude New South Wales from the sentences of transportation passed in this country ; and that this practice is commonly re- ported to rest upon nothing less than a promise from Her Majesty's Government, made in or about   th...

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. By the Pandora, we have received English news to the 23th May, and, via Adelaide, to the 9th of June.   Her Majesty the Queen was safely delivered of   Princess on the 25th May. On the 27th, her Majesty and the royal infant were doing well. Prince Louis Napoleon escaped from Ham on the 25th May. He had been confined several years for attempting to create a revolution in France. The second reading of the Corn Law Bill came   on in the House of Lords on the 25th May, and was carried by a majority of 47 ; Lord Delawar, who intended to oppose the Bill, had resigned his office of Chamberlain of the Queen's Household. Colonel Barney was re-gazetted as Superinten- dent of North Australia on the 26th May ; and on the same day Dr. Hampton was appointed Comptroller of Convicts in Van Diemen's Land.

NURSERY RHYME. THE STORY OF THE REPEAL OF THE CORN LAWS, "SU[?]TED TO THE MEANEST CAPACITY." (From Punch.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 24 October 1846

NURSERY RHYME. THE ST0RY OF THE REPEAL OF THE CORN LAWS, " SUITED TO THE MEANEST CAPACITY." (From Punch) There was a lady who had 24,000,000 babies, and she wanted to get cheap bread for them, but   she could not, because of the Corn Law. So she went to the Lords, and she said, -- " Lords, Lords, repeal this law, or I cannot get cheap bread for my babies." Then the Lords said to her, "Pooh! we are the landed interest ; what do we care for your babies ? The Tories to a man will stand by us." So she went to the Tories, and she said, " Tories, Tories, desert the Lords ; the Lords wont repeal the laws ; and I cannot get cheap bread for my babies." Then the Tories said to her, " Madam, we have no objection to eat dirt ; we do it every day ; but at present we are under the orders of the Duke."   So she went to the Duke, and she said,-- " Duke, Duke, order the Tories ; the Tories won't desert the Lords ; the Lords won't re- peal the law ; and I cannot get cheap br...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 24 October 1846

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. NEW GAOL.-In the Legislative Council, on   the 7th instant, the sum of £820 was voted for the building of a gaol in this town. Mr. Lowe asked if the gaol would not be small ? The Colonial Secretary answered, that there were several large buildings in the town, which had been handed over to the Colonial Government since this place was a penal settlement, and it was to repair and put them in order that the amount was required. CUSTOMS.-The three items of £1000 each, which had been placed on the Estimates for 1846- 7, towards building Custom Houses at Moreton   Bay, Twofold Bay, and Newcastle, have been withdrawn. The two former in consequence of the sites not having yet been determined on, and the latter on account of an advantageous ar- rangement having been entered into to lease a house for three years. In the legislative Council the other day, the Colonial Secretary stated that it was not intended at present to make either Moreton Bay o...

COUNCIL PAPER. LETTER FROM THE HON. F. SCOTT, M.P. London, 1st June, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 31 October 1846

COUNCIL PAPER. LETTER FROM THE HON. F. SCOTT, M.P. London, 1st June, 1846. SIR-Since I last addressed you, I have had the honour of receiving your despatches of the 6th October, and 8th November, 1846, directing my attention to various matters of magnitude and importance, which required the early and de- liberate consideration of the imperial government. I was unable to make any earlier communication to you, on the points embraced in your despatches, as I had no opportunity of communicating .with the Colonial Office on the questions referred to. I am now enabled to state that at an interview at the Colonial Office, I distinctly submitted to the Secretary for the Colonies a free and unreserved communication of the whole substance of your despatches. I received a reply that the subjects alluded to were so important as to require further deliberation, upon other and more appropriate opportunities. The principle of self-government in the colo- nies, and the management of their internal ...

LATEST FROM NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 31 October 1846

LATEST FROM NEW ZEALAND. DISPERSION OF RANGIHAETA'S FORCES.-Her Majesty's ship Castor, having on board His Ex- cellency the Lieutenant-Governor, arrived on Sunday evening last, bringing the important in- telligence of the successive occupation of Rangi- haeta's strongholds-the capture of some, and the dispersion of the rest of his followers. The troops from Sydney arrived at Wellington early in August, and were immediately employed in co-operating with the troops already engaged. We have ascertained from a private source, that the body of Natives from Wanganui, intended to reinforce Rangihaeta, consisted of six hundred men, and that they probably were but the van- guard of a still greater force. They came as far as Ohau, but the Ngatiraukawa natives would not allow them to proceed. A large body of the Ngatiawa, from Waikanae, had proceeded to Otaki in support of their friends and allies, who will most likely be compromised by their opposition to the Wangunui reinforcement. It is fea...

The Louisa, bound for the Tweed, left Amity Point on Thursday week last. She had anchored there during the late gales from the southward.

DESTITUTION AND EMIGRATION. (From the Spectator, May 16.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 31 October 1846

DESTITUTION AND EMIGRATION. (From the Spectator, May 16. )   A notion obtains, that emigration is a resort alternative with prosperous employment for the working classes at home. We observed lately, that it is not at all incompatible with other mea- sures for the relief of the poor, in Ireland especially ;, and further consideration has convinced us that it is most easily and advantageously conducted at times when the working classes are not sunk in the lowest depths of poverty. It is requisite that the emigrants should be in good healthy which they are less likely to be in a time of extreme poverty. It is desirable that they should possess some means ; and it appears probable, indeed, that although a state of excessive hardship may drive them out of the country, a better condition also affords its inducements to migrate. Though statistics do not furnish sufficient data to settle any question involving so many considerations, the subjoined figures may be studied with in...

FACTS WORTH KNOWING. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 31 October 1846

FACTS WORTH KNOWING. Animalcules are not to be found in all fluids ; none are to be found in wines, or any other fer- mented liquor which has not passed into the state of vinegar, or which has not become completely vapid, neither are they to be found in distilled or spring water.-The itch, according to Willan, is caused by an insect, white, with eight reddish legs, to the four hind ones of which is appended a bristle ; it may be distinguished with the mi- croscope in the vesicles of the joints which ac- company the disorder. On the same authority we learn that most of the diseases of the skin are occasioned by other insects.-Ninety millions of eggs of the cheese mite are not so large as one pigeon's egg.-Sponges are believed to consist of excitable flesh, full of small mouths, by which they absorb and eject water.-The phosphoric light seen in the ocean is believed to be caused by innumerable quantities of phosphoric insects. Ambergrease is an internal production of diseased. spermac...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 31 October 1846

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. WAGES CASES.-At the Police Office, yesterday, Mr. Hampden, of South Brisbane, was summoned bofore the Magistrates, to answer the complaint of Henry Harvey, late a salesman in his employ, for non-payment of wages, alleged to be due to him. Mr. Harvey, in stating the particulars of his claim, admitted that he had not entered into any agreement with Mr. Hampden, but said that it was an understanding between them that he was to have a per centage on the business done. On hearing this admission, the Bench decided that they could not entertain the case, and dismissed it accordingly. Our readers will recollect that Mr. Harvey is the person against whom a charge of embezzlement was preferred by Mr. Hampden, on the 16th ultimo, and which was referred to the Attorney-General for his opinion. The Police Magistrate now informed Mr. Harvey, that the case had been considered by the Attorney-General, and he had declined to proceed against him, the evidence not being sufficient ...

CAUSES AND CURE FOR FOOT-ROT IN [?] (From the Launceston Examiner.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 31 October 1846

CAUSES AND CURE FOR FOOT-ROT IN SHEEP.           ( From the Launceston Examiner. ) That this disease is highly infectious, every   person at all acquainted with it readily admits. It seems to be communicated by ichorous matter from the diseased foot, left on the ground, and applied to the foot of a healthy sheep. Sheep are liable to be partially infected on any soil ; but when the pasture is stony, or hard and bare, the animals travel more in search of food, and thus keep the hoofs short and smooth, and more free of cavities or lacerations about the toe or sides of the foot. On this account, sheep fed on dry hard   pastures are less subject to foot-rot than those fed on soft and rich pastures. Whenever the weather is hot and moist, the disease spreads rapidly, but in cold and dry weather, and especially when it is frosty, it is much less severe. The disease is   simply contagious,...

THE UNITED STATES AND MEXICO. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 31 October 1846

THE UNITED STATES AND MEXICO. The Cambria brought the important intelligence that the United States had declared war against Mexico. The President's formal proclamation was dated the 13th of May. On the 11th he trans- mitted a message to Congress, which was immedi- ately acted upon. Both branches, by overwhelm- ing majorities, declared in favour of recognising a war against Mexico, and in providing means tor its energetic prosecution. The regular army was encreased to about 15,000 men ; a special War Bill authorised an additional force of 50,000 men, to be placed at the disposal of the President ; and 10,000,000 dollars were appropriated for the pay ment of the troops. The naval force was increased in an equal ratio. The utmost excitement pre- vailed throughout the Union, and in the southern states large companies of volunteers were being formed to march to the relief of the army on the Rio del Norte. Great fears were entertained   throughout the commercial classes that...
