THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 26, 1846. INDIAN LABOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 26 December 1846

THE Moreton Bay Courier               SATURDAY, DECEMBER 26, 1846. INDIAN LABOUR. With regard to the moral habits of the Coolies, Mr. Friell states that they are not inferior to the Europeans ; and, consider- ing the disadvantages under which they labour, superior to the immigrants from Great Britain. Drunkenness is a vice not practised amongst them. The climate has improved rather than injured the constitu- tion of the Indians. We perfectly agree with the author that they should be employed at stations where there are no Europeans, excepting those required as bullock-drivers. We believe that this plan has been carried out at Mr. Friell's station, on the Stuart River, and experience has proved that the exclusive system is the best, as it prevents the Indian from being tampered with by the European. In selecting labourers in India, it is re- commended that the Hindoo should be preferred to the ...

THE SQUATTING ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 26 December 1846

THE SQUATTING ACT. In the House of Commons, on the 23rd August, the members went into Commit- tee on the Australian Waste Lands Bill, the principal features of which, as stated in the Daily News, a paper which devotes a good deal of its space to colonial mat- ters, are as follows : Within the boundaries it is proposed to adopt the plan recommended by Captain Grey. The country is to be divided into parishes ; the unsold land is to be used as common by the parishioners, in proportion to the extent of sold land each pos- sesses ; and the whole is annually open to purchase at the price established by Parliament. Lands without the boundaries may in future be acquired in full property on certain terms ; and while they remain unsold, may be occupied in runs, under licenses of eight years duration. To be placed under " Regulations." Runs are to be held under eight years' licenses at the rate of £10 for every 4000 sheep, or for a proportionate number of cattle. This fee is inde- pendent of t...

LATEST ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 26 December 1846

LATEST ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. By the Louisa, via Batavia and Hobart Town, news from England to the 24th August has been received in the colony. The Sugar Duties Bill had passed the Lords without a division. The new Ministry attempted to carry a measure, similar to the one introduced by the Peel Ministry, called the Irish Arms Bill. So great however was the national disgust at doing what they had op- posed in the Peel Ministry, that it had to be abandoned. The American tariff has passed the Senate by a majority of one. By the last accounts from the army in Texas, it appears that General Taylor's force now amounts to 15,000 men. General Kearney was to move on to the conquest of New Mexico. He was to halt at Bent's Fort to recruit his men, and to be joined there by Colonel Price's regiment. His whole force will be about 3,200 men, deemed amply strong enough for the object. WOOL.-There is no other notice respecting the wool sales than that all descriptions are dull. Lord Elgin, late Gove...

SIR THOMAS MITCHELL'S DESPATCHES. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 26 December 1846

SIR THOMAS MITCHELL'S DESPATCHES. The following is an abridged account of Sir Thos. Mitchell's exploratory operations in the interior, arid the progress made in finding the overland route to Port Essington. The first despatch is dated the 9th September, 1846, from the camp at the head of the River Salvator, in long. 147° 25' 40" E ,lat 24° 50' 17" S. In January last Sir Thomas Mitchell had to abandon the route into the interior by the River Bogan, and it was only after considerable delay that the party could be conducted to the River Darling. During that month the thermometer stood frequently at 117° in the shade—seldom be- low 100° The intense heat killed all the kan- garoo dogs, and nearly all the patty were attacked with opthalmia. The party was obliged to halt for two weeks at the ponds of Cannonba, between the River Macquarie and the Bogan, On the 12th February, they left the ponds of Cannonba, and   travelled along the left bank of the Macquarie, opening out a car...

THE GOULBURN FARCE. TO CHARLES COWPER, ESQ., M.C. (Per favor of the Editor of the Spectator.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 2 January 1847

THE GOULBURN FARCE. TO CHARLES COWPER, ESQ., M. C. ( Per favor of the Editor of the Spectator. ) DEAR COWPER,-Many thanks for the notice which you have taken of me at your exhibition at Goul- burn, which must have been truly a heavy draft on the stock of " LITTLE INGENUITY." But I ask you, Dear Cowper, was it kind, was it friendly, so to upbraid after having given me the order to im- port the men for you, and in whose selection I appear to have been eminently successful-clearly showing that if the off-scourings of Van Diemen's Land could yield good fruit to the extent of seventy per cent., we might well expect a more abundant harvest of moral industry by direct importation from the prisons of the mother-country. I have met with much ingratitude in this world, but certainly nothing equal to this. You found that the price of labour had advanced to such a point that some immediate steps must be taken for a supply. In this dilemma you applied to me, and I relieved your wants. I enabled ...

          THE Moreton Bay Courier.   SATURDAY, JANUARY 2, 1847. LATEST NEWS FROM ENGLAND. THE St. George arrived in Sydney on the 17th ultimo, bringing English papers to the 30th August, from which we leam that Parliament was prorogued by Com- mission on the 28th August. The Speech was quite unimportant, and very tame. The Queen and Prince Albert had visited Guernsey, which place had not been ho- noured with the presence of its Sovereign since the reign of King John-six cen- turies ago. Captain Fitzroy, late Governor of New Zealand, has published a pamphlet vindi- cating the acts of his Government. Alfred Stephen, Esq., Chief Justice of New South Wales, has been gazetted as a Knight of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. In the House of Commons, a Bill was passed to make further provision for the Government of New Zealand. It enacts that municipal institutions may be esta- blished, and that th...

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 2 January 1847

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. SIR-In your paper of the 26th instant is an extract from a letter published in the Sydney Chronicle, professing to be from some party at Moreton Bay, as follows :-" Some parties went out last week into the bush, and fired at a crowd of blacks in their camp, hoping to shoot one of those for whom a reward is offered, as the mur- derer of Mr. Gregor. They brought in one black, Millbong Jemmy, quite dead, having driven three balls through him, and they received the reward. I have heard it whispered that the blacks have been shot in all directions, and that some persons in authority are conniving at it." I do not know who the writer is, or with whom he corresponds in Sydney, but I will venture to give them through your columns some more in- formation, since it is but just and fair that all the evidence should be produced in a case which the writer says "calls for Protection for the Abo- rigines." The black, Millbong Jemmy, whose fate excites so m...

No, thou villain, thou art full of piety, as shall be proved upon thee by good witness. I am a wise fellow ; and, which is more, an officer ; and, which is more, a householder ; and, which is more, as pretty a piece of flesh as any as is in Messina ; and one that knows the law, go to ; and a rich follow enough, go to ; and a fellow that hath had losses ; and one that hath two gowns, and everything handsome about him - Bring him away.
