CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 28 November 1846

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. By private letters from the Cape of Good Hope, bearing date the 17th July, we observe that the Kaffir war had terminated, the savages having retired beyond the boundary, carrying with them an enormous booty. In a skirmish which took place shortly before their departure with the British Regulars and auxiliaries, they were sig- nally defeated, leaving five hundred dead upon the field, besides an immense number of wounded and prisoners. All the supplies with which the colo-   nists had aided the Government, were being paid for, which gave general satisfaction. A very severe drought throughout the colony had caused provisions to raise to a high figure, which was severely felt by all classes of the colonists. Argus, November 12. RATHER MYSTERIOUS.-" Now, Jack," said the printer of a country newspaper, in giving direc- tions to his apprentice, " put the Irish Attorney General and the state prosecutors into the galleys and lock them up; let the two members f...

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 28 November 1846

THE Moreton Bay Courier.       SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1846. PERHAPS no movement that ever had in   this colony the support of a large body of rational beings has caused greater excite- ment than the movement against the re- vival of transportation-against the intro- duction of an improved system of convict labour. Shorn of its few plausibilities, the whole affair presents such an aspect of the ridiculous, that the general mass of the colonists do nothing else than laugh at it ; and somewhat recovered from their indiscreet earnestness, and having exer- cised a little reflection, the movers begin to perceive that the whole affair will come toppling over with the weight of its own absurdity, and are now preparing them- selves for a more rational course than the one urged upon the colonists by the public meeting held in Sydney a short time ago, This ebullition of feeling had its origin, it seems, with persons upon whose mental vision s...

We have devoted all our available space for the most important items of intelligence.     The Corn Law Bill has passed the Lords, and received the Royal assent. It was carried without a division.               In the House of Commons, the Whigs under Lord John Russell, Protectionists under Lord George Bentinck, and the Irish members under, Mr. Daniel O'Connell, coalesced against the Irish Coercion Bill, and succeeded in throwing out the measure by a majority of 73, whereupon Sir Robert Peel immediately resigned. The resignation of the Peel Ministry was an- nounced in the House of Lords by the Duke of Wellington on the 29lh Jun...

SHIPPING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 5 December 1846

SHIPPING INTELLIGENCE. The Tamar completed her return trip from   Sydney on the 2nd ultimo in seven days and twelve hours. She was very unfortunate on the     last voyage to this port, having been no less than eleven days on the passage from Sydney. She had nothing but heavy gales of wind during the   whole of the voyage ; after starting from New castle and steaming as far as the Bellinger, she   was compelled to return in order to procure a fresh supply of fuel ; she also put into Port Stephens for shelter from the extreme violence of the north-easterly gales. The passengers, Mr. Little and Mr. Le Breton, express their unqualified   approval of the untiring assiduity of Capt. Allen, both by day and night, in endeavouring to make       a favourable passage, and state that as far as their nautical experience went, that he could not have done otherwise than bear up for ...

NORFOLK ISLAND. (From the Hobart Town Courier, Oct. 31.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 5 December 1846

NORFOLK ISLAND. (From the Hobart Town Courier, Oct. 31.) In the last Courier we gave a brief notice of the execution of twelve men (who with two others acquitted) had been tried and found guilty of the murder of one John Morris, a constable, at the period of the riots. Several other murders were committed, in which the prisoners were implicated, but a conviction having followed with regard to the murder of Morris, the other informations were not proceeded with. The twelve unhappy men were executed on the morning of the 13th October. Three of them had been brought up in the Protestant faith, and were attended on the scaffold by the Rev. Mr. Rogers, one of the Episcopalian chaplains of the island. The other nine, being of the Roman Ca- tholic faith, were attended in their last moments by the Rev. Messrs Murray and Bond. The three Protestants were, William Westwood, alias Jackey Jackey, Henry Whiting, and William Pickthorne. It forms a remarkable feature in these trials, that Jackey Ja...

NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 5 December 1846

NOTICE TO CORRESPONDENTS Pro Bono Publico.-It is quite true that we do decline publishing the communication alluded to; and, lest any misapprehension should prevail amongst our readers in the Bush, we deem it necessary to state the reasons for such refusal, as we have no idea of our im partiality being called in question unless on good and sufficient grounds. The document referred to is addressed to the " Settlers of the County of Stanley," and is drawn up by some person whose vanity, spite and ill-na- ture are manifested in every line. The writer   sets out with assertions the truth and accu racy of which he will find it somewhat diffi-   cult to demonstrate. For instance, after stating, as far as we can understand the meaning of his unconnected sentences, that the inhabitants of Brisbane studied nothing but their own selfish interests in requesting   " His Excellency the Governor to direct that a Custom House be built as early as practi- cabl...

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 5 December 1846

THE             MORETON BAT COURIER.       SATURDAY, DECEMBER 5, 1846. It is admitted by all the opponents of the transportation system, that there is an urgent demand for labour-that it is ab- solutely necessary we should be supplied from some source ; and yet amongst all those persons who are so clamorous against it, not one has pointed out any feasible plan whereby our wants can be adequately relieved. Some, it is true, have proposed that a loan should be raised in England to meet the cost of free immigration ; but we would ask where is the security to come from ? Will the capitalists in the metropolis come forward at their own personal risk and give that security ? We opine not. They have had quite sufficient experience as regards the withdrawal of the trading capital of the colony for emigration purposes, some few years back, to admit of their entering into any s...

PROROGATION OF THE COUNCIL.

Mr. Wentworth brought up the Report of the   Committee on Transportation, with the evidence, which was ordered to be printed, in order that the public might have time fully to weigh and con- sider the very important propositions involved in the Report. Mr. Windeyer moved that the replies to the circular letter addressed to the different clergy of the colony respecting the aborigin...

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 5 December 1846

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. At a full meeting of the Corn Law league, it     was resolved that the League should not be abolished until the expiry of the Corn Laws in 1849. The name of the young princess is to be Helena     Augusta Victoria. The rumour that Prince Albert is to be styled " King Consort," was again afloat, and it was said that the Queen was determined to have the title   conferred upon him.     The King and Queen of the French, with the junior branches of the royal house, were to visit her Majesty Queen Victoria, early in July. THE ARMY.-Men may now be enlisted in the army under engagment to serve for short periods. The 37th Regiment is under orders for these colonies.         The mechanics of Greenock are at present en-   gaged in getting up a penny subscription, to give Sir R.

ORIGINAL POETRY. TO INA. Fond memory still recalls the hours   We sweetly passed together,           When round my brow you twined those flowers     Which bloom in every weather.   Of love and hope, and all those blisses Which, though they linger, never cloy - Oh ! would I had again those kisses Which brought me never-failing joy. I miss thine eye for ever speaking Language to mine ears unheard,   But which my spirit without seeking Comprehended without word. I miss thy form so vine-like clinging, As if I were thy parent tree, And thy voice, for ever ringing In mine ears so merrily. I miss thy thousand nameless graces.   Shedding o'er me such delight,     That I wish in those embraces I could pass my life-long night !             T. A. Bris...
