COLONIAL WOOL. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 2 January 1847

COLONIAL WOOL. The following advice to wool-growers has, we believe, received very partial circulation in manu- script, but as far as we can learn has not found its way to any extent into the hands of settlers. The subject is one of vital importance to them, but is unfortunately much disregarded. Wools having for the last two years realised good prices, growers and shippers too have become careless ; and the bales at present sent in of this season's clip are in a worse state than those sold in London. We earnestly recommend to all concerned a careful perusal of Mr. Simes's letter, reminding them that he is one of the most experienced and able men in the trade. It may be as well to add, that the cir- cular has the sanction of the principal houses at home who are in the habit of receiving consign- ments of wool from the colonies :- The wool grown in New South Wales has now become an object of much interest to all wool dealers and woollen manufacturers ; and from the annual increase of...

COLONIAL ABSTRACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 9 January 1847

COLONIAL ABSTRACT. A schooner, the property of Captain Brown, was launched at the Paterson River on the 19th ult. The tender of Mr. Brown for the supply of coals to the H. R. S. N. Company, has been accepted for the year 1847, at 5s. 11d. per ton, delivered at Morpeth.-Messrs. Donaldson Co., of Newcastle, are making preparations for carrying on the manufacture of salt in that neighbourhood. The works, which are to be on an extensive scale, are being erected near the beach, on the estate of Dr. Mitchell, about three miles to the southward of Newcastle. To obtain a direct and level road from the works to the harbour, a tunnel, about a quarter of a mile in length, has been cut through a hill, and through a seam of excellent coal.-A soldier was shot at Ross, Van Diemen's Land, by a con- stable, who had been out with a party in search of bushrangers. They were challenged by a party of soldiers, and it being too dark for the parties to distinguish each other, they mutually fancied they we...

MORETON BAY. To the Editors of the Sydney Morning Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 9 January 1847

MORETON BAY. To the Editors of the Sydney Morning Herald. GENTLEMEN,-A public meeting was called, to be held at the Court House, North Brisbane, on 19th November, 1846, to take into consideration the statement made by the Honorable the Colonial Secretary in the Legislative Council, on the sub- ject of fixing the site of a Custom House in the district of Moreton Bay. Accordingly on the day appointed a few persons assembled, and passed se- veral resolutions, and adopted a memorial to his Excellency the Governor, the substance of which was, " 1st. That Brisbane, from its situation, was the most fitting place for a commercial town ; 2nd. That a very trifling expense for the dredging machine would clear all impediments to navigation in the river, so that large ships could go up to Brisbane, and therefore make it a good shipping port," and praying that a Custom House be built at Brisbane. I will take the second proposition first, and show that Brisbane can never be a shipping port, and th...

MR. SCOTT'S SPEECH. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 9 January 1847

MR. SCOTT'S SPEECH. WE have been requested to publish a full   report of Mr. Scott's effective speech in the House of Commons, on the 22nd August   last, when the Waste Lands Bill was   passed. We have accordingly devoted a large space in our present number for its publication ; we do this the more readily as there has been during the past week a great dearth of local news. The following is the speech, as reported in the Times : Mr. F. Scott said : I cheerfully and gratefully admit that the present bill is far superior to any   that has hitherto been proposed ; and I am bound to state that, in all the intercourse which I have had with the colonial Office during the last two years, since I have had, in some sense, entrusted   to my care the interest of the colony of New South   Wales, I have at no former period experienced so   much courtesy as from the present Government,   &a...

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, JANUARY 9, 1847. COURTS OF PETTY SESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 9 January 1847

THE Moreton Bay Courier.     SATURDAY, JANUARY 9, 1847. COURTS OF PETTY SESSIONS. His Excellency the Governor has promptly availed himself of the provisions of the Act for establishing Courts of Petty Ses- sions in the various districts where they were so urgently required. The preli- minary arrangements, as far as the ap- pointment of places where the Courts are to be held, have been completed, the par- ticulars of which will be found in another column. The Government appears to   have made a judicious choice of localities for the holding of these Courts, and there is little doubt but that the squatters and   the public generally will be greatly bene- fitted by them.

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 9 January 1847

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. SIR,-I hope you will favour your readers by re- printing the splendid effusion which appeared in the Sydney Herald of the 28th ultimo, respecting the famous Cleveland Point question. It is so rich and racy, and contains so many novel statements, that I am quite sure your readers will be delighted when they peruse it. The writer (Squatocracy) is evidently a man of deep, research, but of superficial observation ; for he has found out, on enquiry, that " there is a vast number of flats" (both human and terreous, I presume), "'upwards of fifteen miles in extent, to clear a passage through which it will take sixty years, at a cost of £60,000, to make the river Brisbane navigable for large ships." Fifteen miles of flats to clear a passage through ! As my friend Cape would say, that is all " flam." Has the writer forgotten that the northern en- trance to the Bay is free from all dangers, and that ships of the largest tonnage can beat up to the mout...

DR. LEICHHARDT'S OVERLAND EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 9 January 1847

DR. LEICHHARDT'S OVERLAND EXPE- DITION.     The following letter from Captain McArthur, Commandant at Port Essington, has been com- municated to the Royal Geographical Society. It contains so many interesting details on the state of the settlement, and on the prospect of commu- nication with the Eastern Archipelago, that it will be eagerly perused, apart from the excitement be- longing to the main subject. " Victoria, North Australia, March, 1846. " SIR,-A vessel returning from Torres Straits (where the master has been attempting to float the Maid of Athens, wrecked last year) has called at this port for assistance, having sprung several leaks, and injured her masthead, and presents an opportunity for my reporting upon the general state of this settlement for the information of her Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for the Colonies.

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 9 January 1847

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. The Duke of Wellington visited Plymouth for-   tifications on the 23th August, to inspect what had   been done, and to direct future operations. The naval pamphlet of Prince de Joinville has caused   the guns of these fortifications to be doubled in   weight and increased in number ; besides apparatus for red-hot shot being attached to many of the   batteries.     Money was so plentiful in England, on the 31st         August, that many of the deposit banks refused any longer to give interest. The demand for money, however, was not equal to the supply ;   which the Times considers a proof of the sound state of the country at that time.   O the same day, wheat was from 6s. to 6s. 6d. per bushel of 70 lbs. avoirdupoise, according to   equality. The new wheat was fetching ab...

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 16 January 1847

    To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. SIR,-in your paper of the 9th is a letter from Ipswich signed"Squatocracy, extracted from the Sydney Morning Herald, commenting on the, petition to his Excellency the Governor from the inhabitants of Moreton Bay, requesting that this town may be fixed upon as a site for the new Custom House for the port of Moreton Bay. I must remark in the first place that the tone and spirit in which this letter is written is, ill adapted to a calm discussion of the subject ; or, its erroneous assertions, to supply the place of facts. Nor does the writer's imputation of sordid and unworthy motives to others, afford, any gaurantee that his own conduct is more pure and disinterested than that which he so emphatically condemns. Let him bear in mind that the advo- cacy of all class interests is liable to suspicion. The energy of his attack on the men of Brisbane may prove his courage though not his prudence in the cause of the men ...

THE [?]oreton [?]ap Courier. SATURDAY, JANUARY 16, 1847. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 16 January 1847

          THE Moreton Bay Courier   SATURDAY, JANUARY 16, 1847. ABOUT four months ago we felt ourselves impelled by a sense of public duty to notice the unsatisfactory relationship that existed between our venerable representa- tive, Mr. McLeay., and his constituents in this district. We put the question respect- ing the propriety of his resigning a post, the duties of which, owing to his increas- ing years and infirmities, he is no longer able to fulfil. No answer has been re- turned to that question. Again we ask what Mr. McLeay's intentions are ; does he mean to retain that power which, he has admitted himself, he is unable to exercise for the advantage of his constitu- ents ? One would imagine that a man at his time of life, would gladly lay aside the cares of an official existence, and seek that repose in his declining years which would best prepare him for the change he must shortly undergo in the co...

NEW ACT FOR THE RECOVERY OF SMALL DEBTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 16 January 1847

NEW ACT FOR THE RECOVERY OF SMALL DEBTS. In our last we noticed the establishment of Courts of Petty Sessions, under the provisions of an Act passed by the Legislative Council,and assented to by the Governor on the 30th October, and which is now the law of the land.   Courts of Requests are by this Act abolished in all parts of the colony except in the County of Cumberland, and at Melbourne in the Port Phillip district. All cases formerly entertained by the Courts of Requests, are now, under certain mo- difications, transferred to Courts of Petty Sessions, to be adjudicated upon by the Magistrates. Under   the new Act, Police Magistrates, who were formerly   Commissioners under the Court of Requests Act, will still have the power of deciding alone in cases not exceeding £5, and with the consent of both parties to the extent of £30. Another important feature is, that power is given to sue for any debt, demand, or damage, whether liquidated or un...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. NEW EXPORT.-We have been shown several samples of oil which had been procured from the Youngon, a marine animal that abounds in the Bay, and in the capture of which several persons are now engaged. The oil is of excellent quality, pellucid, and of most agreeable odour. We should say that it is admirably adapted for a variety of purposes, ornamental as well as useful It has been used in the frying of fish, and has been highly approved by connoisseurs in cookery, who pronounce it to be quite equal to any salad oil. It is also said to be admirably adapted for the toilette. One of these animals will yield six or seven gallons of oil, and as they are very numerous, their pro- duce may become a very valuable article for ex- portation, or for home consumption. We under- stand that several samples have been sent to Sydney. It is our intention shortly to publish an account of the habits of the Youngon, and the best mode of effecting its capture. We believe that an animal,...

THE MURDERERS OF MR. BEVERIDGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 16 January 1847

THE MURDERERS OF MR. BEVERIDGE. In our " Extraordinary" of Friday, we an- nounced the capture of three blacks charged with the wilful murder of Mr. Beveridge, junior, settler, on the Lower Murray. They were accordingly brought up for a preliminary examination at the police office on the same morning, but stand re- manded to Monday next in order to have the benefit of the attendance of two white men who have already identified the three assassins as being the persons who perpetrated the lamentable act. Their names are Ptolemy, Bullet-eye, and Bobby. They appear to be between thirty and thirty-five years of age. Ptolemy and Bobby are men of much muscular frame and most savage disposition. The following particulars relative to their capture will no doubt be interesting to the public. On the 30th October, Corporal Johnston, who was on duty on the Lower Murray, with troopers Farrell and Dollard, of the Border Police, heard of the untimely fate of Mr. Beveridge and Mr. Byerley, overseer t...
