THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, JUNE 27, 1846. WE WANT A BANK! [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 27 June 1846

THE Moreton Bay Courier.         SATURDAY, JUNE 27, 1846. WE WANT A BANK ! " I have heard it asserted, that the trade of the city of Glasgow doubled in about fifteen years after the first erection of the Banks there; and that     the trade of Scotland has more than quadrupled sinde the first erection of the two public Banks at Edinburgh. ***** Whether the trade,         either of Scotland in general, or the city of   Glasgow in particular, has really increased in so great a proportion, during so short a period, I do not pretend to know. If either of them has increased in this propor- tion, it seems to be an effect too great to be accounted for by the sole operation of this single cause. That the trade and industry of Scotland, however, have increased very con-   siderably during that period, and that the Banks have contributed a ...

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL AND THE GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 4 July 1846

THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL AND THE GOVERNOR.   His Excellency the Governor has issued a proclamation proroguing the Council until the 25th August. Finding himself de- feated on the Crown Lands and Border Police question, and irritated beyond measure at the Address which was pre- sented to him by order of the Council, His Excellency so far forgot himself, and his high office, as the representative of his Sovereign, as to refuse any reply to the Council. The Address was presented by the Speaker, Mr. Lord, and Mr. Windeyer, and the substance and tenor of the words used by His Excellency on the occasion were as follows : Mr. Speaker, I am happy to say that this is an Address which requires no reply, nor do I intend to give it any. I thought it right to give the Council- the opportunity of passing the Bill if they thought fit. Perhaps I thought they would not pass it, and they have not ; but I do not see   why on that account, the responsibility should be cast on m...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 4 July 1846

NEW ZEALAND. BY the Scotia, arrived from Port Nicholson, on the 26th ultimo, intelligence has reached the colony   that an engagement had taken place on the 16th May, between the natives, under the noted chiefs Rangihaeata and Kaiparatehau, and a body of fifty men of the 53th regiment, who had been left to occupy a position at Boulcott's Farm, in the   Hutt Valley. The detachment was under the command of Lieutenant Page. It appears that the attack was commenced by Rangihaeata, and the natives under his command, at about half an hour before daylight, by a general rush on the pickets, who were instantly overpowered. The natives then surrounded the out-houses occupied   by the main body of the troops, and poured in a heavy fire upon them. Lieut. Page, as soon as practicable, drew out the whole of the party, and a severe skirmish, hand to hand, ensued, which ended in the natives being repulsed, and driven back into the bush, firing, however, on the...

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, JULY 4, 1846. LABOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 4 July 1846

        THE MORETON BAY COURIER. SATURDAY, JULY 4, 1846.     LABOUR. IT is of the very last importance that we should have an adequate supply of labour. Settlers, with their flocks and herds, have rapidly increased, and this district, which so very recently echoed only to the soli- tary foot-fall of the wandering savage, now exhibits all the signs of civilization : two towns, and villages in course of for- mation ; a steamer plying on the river ; Custom-house, and all other et ceteras, indicate its future prosperity and progress. With all these advantages, however, we shall never be able to develope the bound- less resources of this fine country, unless we have a more copious supply of   emigrants than private individuals can furnish. An effort must be made to pro- cure labour, and that without delay. There are two reservoirs from which a supply of labour might be obtained-New Zealand and Van ...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. CHARGE OF SHOOTING WITH INTENT TO KILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 4 July 1846

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE.   CHARGE OF SHOOTING WITH INTENT TO KILL. - On Thursday afternoon the inhabitants of South Brisbane were thrown into a state of the greatest alarm and excitement, in consequence of a person named Cornelius Hughes, a tailor, having fired a loaded pistol at a shoemaker named William Darker, while the latter was attempting to enter his workshop, with the intention of taking away some goods which had been seized under a distress   warrant by order of Hughes, who was in poses- sion of part of the premises where the occurrence took place. It appears that Hughes some time ago assigned over the whole premises to Darker, with the consent of Liddiad, the lessor, who had agreed to accept Darker as his tenant. Hughes consequently became a tenant of Darker's, who also exercised the right of letting another room to a third person. No written documents were held       by either party. Hughes subsequently repented ...

SONG OF THE SCOTTISH SHEPHERD ON THE HILLS OF NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 4 July 1846

SONG OF THE SCOTTISH SHEPHERD ON THE HILLS OF NEW SOUTH WALES. Far, far from my home in the Hielands so grand, And a'tending, these sheep on a wide distant land, I feel myself happy wherever I be, With my lass of Australia sweet smiling by me. On those steep stony ridges each morning I go, Where wy flock loves to feed, where the cool breezes blow;       At noon seek the shade of a kurryjong tree, With the lass of Australia sweet smiling.by me. But should my dear lassie remain at our home, My mind is contented although she is gone, In hopes at the gloamin' my gunee to see, Where the lass of Australia is waiting for me. When Sol journeys north, and the evenings grow   Then I cheer my dear lass wi' an auld Scottish sang;       My heart boundeth light as I carol with glee To the maid of Australia a listening to me, With the love lays of Burns her bosom I fill, Or the sweet simple strains of our de...

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, JULY 11, 1846. WASTE LAND BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 11 July 1846

THE Moreton Bay Courier.     SATURDAY, JULY 11, 1846.   WASTE LAND BILL.   THE Bill to amend the Act for regulating the Sale of Waste Land, introduced by Mr. Hope into the House of Commons at the close of the last session of Parliament, as our readers are probably aware, did not proceed beyond a first reading. A copy has since been forwarded by Lord Stanley to Sir George Gipps. It would be pre- mature to offer any decided opinion upon the Bill in its present shape, as the details are very vague and undefined. The views of Government, however, have been made known by Lord Stanley in his despatches, which are explanatory of its intended operation. The Bill as originally introduced was designed to effect four objects, viz :-To remove any doubts which might be enter- tained of the power of the Crown to grant eases of unsold waste land ; to remove a similar doubt as regards the reservation of minerals ; to establish a fixed annual pay- ...

It appears that   she was taken by the natives at the Sandwich Island, one of the New Hebrides, when the whole of the Europeans belonging to her were killed and eaten ; but three New Zealanders and a Sandwich Islander were spared. The Elizabeth touched at Sandwich Island to endeavour to procure sandal-   wood and vegetables, &c, and finding the natives appealed friendly and inclined to barter, the ship remained there several days, without the officers or crew being at all alarmed. Some of the natives were allowed to remain on board all night, amongst whom was one of t...

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 11 July 1846

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. SIR, - You appear to have been led into error by some interested party respecting the circumstances that occurred in South Brisbane on Thursday week, which I hope, in common justice, you will permit me to correct ; as such statements may do me con- siderable injury if allowed to go uncontradicted. The following are the facts :-   Darker was permitted by me to remain, on suf- ferance, in my house until the amount due to me was paid according to agreement. He failed to do so, and then became my tenant, I then dis- trained upon his goods, and they were removed to my own room. In attempting to recover the pro- perty, thus distrained, by force, the unfortunate occurrence took place, which 1 sincerely regret, and for which I am ready to make every atone- ment in my power. Requesting the insertion of the above, I am, Sir, Your obedient servant, CORNELIUS HUGHES.
