NORFOLK ISLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 14 November 1846

NORFOLK ISLAND. We have been recently favoured with important intelligence from this island, and as it is but rarely any of the doings of that unhappy spot reach the public ear or eye, we are glad to have it in our power to communicate an account of the late pro- ceedings, upon which our readers may full rely. A more melancholy one can scarcely be imagined, and if to what we now publish we were to add other enormities with which we have heen made ac- quainted, we can scarcely doubt but that the whole community would indignantly protest against the continuance of a system which, it may be feared, will sooner or later call down the vengeance of God, as of old, upon the nation which can tolerate such a festering mass of wickedness. The late Commandant, it was universally confessed, was unfitted in every possible way for the duties most unaccountably entrusted to him. The following may be relied upon as a correct outline of the late transactions, and of the incen- tives which terminated...

Coley's store, North Brisbane, yes- terday, to take into consideration the propriety of calling a public meeting of the inhabitants of the district, to decide upon memorialising His Ex- cellency the Governor, respecting the site and erection of the proposed Custom House for the Port of Moreton Bay.

BODY FOUND.—SUSPECTED MURDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 14 November 1846

BODY FOUND.-SUSPECTED MURDER.   On Saturday morning last, the inhabitants of East Maitland were thrown into a considerable state of excitement, by the report that the body of a man had been found in the bush, in the vicinity of the Morpeth road. This report was shortly found to be strictly correct, and several of the police force hastened to the spot, which was pointed out to them by a woman named Jane Macdonald, who first discovered the corpse of the unlucky man. The body was discovered lying across a ridge, at the head of a gully, in front of Mr. Eckford's house. A huge gum-tree, which had been burn- ing for the last two months, lay smouldering and smoking immediately in front of the body, which had merely been thrown upon the ground amongst a thick clump of prickly furze, uncovered and un- concealed, save only by the thick shrubs that grew around it. Nothing was left of the unfortunate being but the mere skeleton, with here and there a few portions of dried skin and ...

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 14 November 1846

      THE MORETON BAY COURIER. hi SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 1846. We recollect having heard a story of an ill-natured schoolboy, who was a greedy gut ; and who on being asked for a portion of a very large cake which had been sent to him as a present, refused to share it with his companions, saying, " I never give to those boys who ask, and those who don't ask don't want. " This is a tolerably apt illustration of the relative position of the inhabitants of Moreton Bay and the Government. Since the settle- ment has been established, Government has derived a very considerable revenue from the sales of land, rental of public buildings, office fees and fines, licenses, and ferries, the proceeds of which have been sent to Sydney, and expended for the benefit of other districts to the neglect and injury of our own. And why is this ? Expound Mr. Colonial Secretary and Mr. McLeay ! Oh, says Mr. McLeay, Govern- ment seldom give to those who ask ; oh, says t...

THE LITTLE GO. Of the Little Go, its goings, and what was thought about them. By "MYSELF." [CONCLUSION] [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 14 November 1846

THE LITTLE GO: Of the Little Go, its goings, and what was   thougt about them. By " Myself."   [CONCLUSION]   Now the Little Go is evidently a go-a-head Court, for no sooner had single B. made himself scarce than the great cause, O. C. v. M. C, was called on. There is no doubt that if work is required to be gone through in a hurry - payment by the job will ensure such a result - payment by fees the same. Whether it be done well or not is another matter, and it is a question if the doings of the Little Go - like beef-steaks, should be done quickly, to be well done. So O. C. and M. C. were called, like Glendower's " spirits from the vasty deep"-but they did not come-but somebody did. The great double B double C. ; I. H. S. ; I. D. and B. C. R., .' sub- mitted to his Worship," that he appeared as agent for O. C, and double U. double U. showed fight for M. C.-and the great double B lifted up his voice and said, " that the defendant, not having the ...

THE STATE OF VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. (From the Times, May 27.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 21 November 1846

THE STATE OF VAN DIEMEN'S LAND.. (From the Times, May 27.)   We cannot but think Mr. Ewart has been not less injudicious in the management than unfor- tunate in the fate of his favourite motion. After   repeated and voluntary adjournments on days when all the world was bent on business and the House displayed a full concourse of members, he brings it on at last at a period of customary re- laxation, in the midst of a fascinating excitement out of doors, when every man with the smallest love of gaiety or the least pretension to fashion (a description which, of course, includes the whole House of Commons, except the twenty-seven laborious gentlemen who were counted out last night) is absent far away upon the Epsom Downs. The importance of the subject might have made Mr. Ewart more careful to, insure at least a com- plement of members, if not a full attendance. The House, he knew, is always impatient at the dis- cussion of colonial subjects. The distance of ou...

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 21 November 1846

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. SIR,-I observe in your last number that you have favoured your readers with some remarks relative to the ferries, and the appropriation of the funds derived from them. I quite agree with you that it is high time we were up and doing in this matter. The wit of man could devise no tax more opposed to common sense and sound policy, or better fitted to retard the progress of a young and struggling com- munity, than the abominable ferry imposition, to which you have recently drawn our attention. It is at once a tax upon communication and a direct tax, the most odious and unpopular of all kinds of taxation. Its effect has been, as every one amongst us too well knows, to render the three settlements of Kangaroo Point, North Brisbane, and South Brisbane, as isolated and as separate in their aims and interests, as if they were ten miles distant from each other, instead of only being separated by the river Brisbane. Cease when it may, its fame must re...

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 21 November 1846

THE MORETON BAY COURIER           SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 1846 OUR humane Government recently for- warded to this district at the public ex- pense, an aboriginal black who had un- dergone a term of incarceration of three years on Cockatoo Island. With a mul- titude of European vices grafted on his native ferocity, his presence in this dis- trict is already disastrously felt. Led on by him, the Brisbane and Pine River tribes, have become so daring in their depredations, that no person now ventures to trust himself unarmed beyond the pre- cincts of the town. The late frightful tragedy, with its somewhat farcical ending,   is scarcely over ; yet our local columns of to-day record another revolting outrage. And this with scarcely an effort being made to inflict such punishment as might serve effectually to prevent the commission of similar atrocities. Are there no means of checking so   fearful a w...

COLONIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 21 November 1846

COLONIAL.   CAPTAIN STOKES'S DISCOVERIES.-In various articles upon the northern parts of New Holland,   directed as they have been, in part, to illustration of the discoveries of Leichhardt, we have called   the attention of our brother colonists to the vast   fields for enterprise and labour, at present unoc- cupied, which are merely awaiting the processes of occupation and culture to furnish an abundant increase to our national wealth. Our inducement now to return to the subject is twofold. Leich- hardt has again set forth, upon his exploration, and is already many miles from Sydney, in his progress towards his new destination ; and the result of Captain Stokes's discoveries has just come into our bands. .As much that is contained in the works of the latter gentleman, independent of its positive value, is of relative use to us in appreciating the energy and truthfulness of the former, we propose, therefore, to examine some of the...

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 21 November 1846

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. BRITISH SETTLEMENT IN BORNEO.-The esta- blishment of a British settlement in Borneo, apart from considerations connected with trade, cannot but be viewed as a subject of high interest, from the influence in it likely to have on that country. In the first place, a British settlement on the north- west of Borneo, affording a station for our cruisers, will have the effect of checking and ultimately annihilating piracy in that quarter, and forcing the pirates of Malluda, and the other notorious piratical head quarters on the north, north-east, and north-west coasts of Borneo, to direct that spirit of enterprise which now makes them the terror and scourge of the honest trader into n ore legitimate channels. In being a powerful help in extending the light of civilisation; as well as in promoting the freedom of the Dyak race, the ab- origines of Borneo, and whose interesting charac- ter, as well as present oppressed condition, have been so feelingly pourtr...

FEROCIOUS DUEL IN THE UNITED STATES. (From the Pictorial Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 21 November 1846

FEROCIOUS DUEL IN THE UNITED STATES. (From the Pictorial Times.)       The following horrible affair has recently oc- curred at Richmond in America, and proved fatal to one of the parties soon after the contest. Both were editors of newspapers expressing different opinions; their names were Pleasants and Ritchie. The following are the details : The quarrel had gone on in their newspapers to such an extent that Mr. Pleasants thought himself called upon to bring the matter to a crisis. He therefore sent a request to Mr. Ritchie to meet him at a specified place and hour, across the river from Richmond, with side arms. Mr. Ritchie sent word back that he could not consent to settle the affair in that way. Mr. Pleasants then sent him word that the affair must be settled, and in that way. Mr. Ritchie then prepared himself with a re- volver of six barrels, two duelling pistols, and a horseman's short sword, and repaired to the place designated at the t...

A BILL (AS AMENDED IN COMMITTEE.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 21 November 1846

    A BILL     (AS AMENDED IN COMMITTEE.) To consolidate and amend the laws now in force for preventing the extension of the diseases called   the Scab, and the 'Influenza or Catarrh, in   Sheep and Lambs, in the Colony of New South Wales.       THE preamble recites that certain Acts have at     various times, since 1833, passed the Legislative Council, for " preventing the extension of scab,   and of influenza and catarrh, in sheep and lambs,   in the colony of New South Wales ;" and that the said Acts are hereby repealed. Clause II. enacts, that it any person shall turn out, keep, depasture, drive, or conduct, or permit or suffer to be turned out, kept, depastured, driven or conducted, any sheep infected with the disease called the scab, or with the disease called the in- fluenza or catarrh, within a quarter of a m...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 21 November 1846

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. PUBLIC MEETING. ON Thursday, a meeting of the inhabitants of North and South Brisbane took place, pursuant to notice, at the Court House, North Brisbane, to take into consideration a Memorial to His Excel- lency the Governor, respecting the site of a Custom House for this district, and on other public business. Captain COLEY having been called upon to pre- side, briefly explained the objects for which they had that day assembled. In the absence of correct   information, the Government, he said, had inti- mated through the Colonial Secretary, that Bris- bane could not long be the commercial town for this important district. This assertion, and the indecision which prevailed on the part of the Go- vernment, had destroyed confidence, and had been the means of checking all attempts at improving and extending the township ; for who would build when it was uncertain how long this might re- main the shipping port for the district ? In his opinion, and he ha...

LATEST FROM CHINA.—SURRENDER OF CHUSAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 28 November 1846

LATEST FROM CHINA, SURRENDER OF CHUSAN.       The news from China, via Singapore and South Australia, which we extract from the Melbourne Argus, of the 27th ult., extends to the middle of July. A proclamation had been issued at Hongkong,     on the 18th May, to the effect that, consequent on the Emperor having admitted, under his own hand, the right of the English to enter Canton, the exercise of that right would be postponed till the Canton population were more under the con-   trol of the local government, and that Chusan would be immediately given up.           Accordingly, the island was surrendered on   the 5th July, but the British troops were retained till the Mandarins could establish authority. General D'Aguillar was officiating at Victoria,   Hongkong, for Sir John Davis, pro tem., while the latter was at C...
