CLIMATE OF NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 23 January 1847

CLIMATE OF NEW SOUTH WALES. Count de Strzelecki gives the following tables of temperature on a mean of three years ending with 1842, kept at three principal stations in New South Wales, and of five years at Launceston, Van Diemen's Land. The deductions from these registers were, 1, that the température between 8 and 9 A.M, in summer, and between 9 and 10 A.M. in winter, represents the daily mean of each season ; 2, that the minimum temperature of summer is equal to the mean temperature of winter ; and 3, that the maximum of winter corresponds to the mean of summer. It will be seen by these tables that while the station of Launceston, in Van Diemen's Land, is, on the whole, colder than either of the three sta- tions New South Wales, the climate is much more equable, the fluctuation of temperature during the warmest season being little more than half ; and during the coldest season being about one-half of the fluctuation in the other three localities. It is this which, so far as tempe...

LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. ENGLISH intelligence to the 20th September, eighteen days later than our former advices, huí been received by the Sir Robert Peel, arrived at Hobart Town with troops, having made the pas- sage in ninety-two days. Her Majesty, Prince Albert, and the Royal Family were in excellent health, and had been making maritime excursions, and visiting all die principal ports on the southern coast of England. Very serious apprehensions were entertained of a war in Europe in consequence of the following events :-Queen Isabella of Spain has announced her being betrothed to her first cousin, the Bon Francisco, Duke of Cadiz, the son of her uncle Don Francisco de Paulo, brother of her father Ferdinand VII. It is said that some physical cause prevents the probability of any issue to this marriage, and therefore Louis Philippe has forced upon the Queen's sister, Donna Louisa, a girl of fourteen, the Duc de Montpensier.oneof hissons. This French alliance, with the hope probably of ...

SWAN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 23 January 1847

SWAN RIVER. We have a large file from Perth, running from the 4th August to the 4th November inclusive. The news is of a much more animated descrip- tion than usual. The Swan has awakened from its lethargy, and is coming forth as a mining, a coal country, a fruit and a wine country, as a manufacturing, ship-building, and exporting country : and, above all, which we least expected, as one full of enterprise and energy. The ports of Western Australia are declared free to all nations, and pilots are provided gra- tuitously by the Local Government. Recent searches have brought to light iron of quality rarely to be equalled. Clay has been met with which is pronounced by a competent judge to be the true Staffbidshire pottery clay. The announcement of Dr. Leichhardt's attempt to reach the Swan overland was received with great pleasure, and a very warm reception is promised him. ? The tea-tree, or Melaleuca, is beginning to be much valued for boats, being as indestructible as the Jarrah, an...

SPORTING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 23 January 1847

SPORTING INT ELLIG ENCE. THE Drapers' Races came off" on the Homebush Race-course on New Year's Day. There was a numerous attendance, and an unusual number of carriages on the ground. His Excellency the Governor reached the course at an early hour in the forenoon, in a carriage drawn by Captain Apperley's four favourite bays. All the races .were well contested, and gave general satisfaction. The following was the result :-First race, the Drapers' Purse, won by Mr. Holden's Robin Hood. Second race, the Union Purse of 100 sovereigns, won by Mr. A. Wilshire's Eva. Third race, the Tradesmen's Purse of 50 sove- reigns, won by old Jorrocks. The Beaten Stakes of 2 sovereigns each, with 20 sovereigns added, won by Tally-ho. An accident occurred to George Marsden, the well-known jockey, which nearly deprived bim of life. The following are the particulars, which we extract from the Sydney Herald ..-" Marsden had won the first heat of the race for the Union Purse, on Cassandra, a fine mare, br...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 23 January 1847

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. .Tur. WEATHER.-The weather during the past week has been excessively heavy and sultry. On . Wednesday night we had some very heavy sliowcrs, accompanied with thunder and lightning. On the following morning, it was ascertained that up- wards of four inches of rain had fallen. The weather still continues heavy and lowering, witli indications of a still heavier fall of rain. The roads are all but impassable ; and it appears to be the general opinion, that all the wool from the interior will not reach Brisbane before the end of July next. On Thursday there was a great fresh in the liver, and large quantities of drift timber vere observed fioating past the township. We understand that, the rains have been very heavy up the country, and that the creeks are bank high Should this kind of weather continue, all com- munication with the interior wil be put a stop to, as all the bridges between Darling Downs,anti Brisbane have been carried away by the Hoods.

            THE Moreton Bay Courier             SATURDAY, JANUARY 23, 1847. COLONEL BARNEY and family, accompanied   by nearly all the official gentlemen con- nected with the new settlement of Northern Australia, left Sydney in the Lord Auck- land on the 8th instant. They expected to reach Port Curtis on or about the 15th instant. We understand that since Col. Barney's return from his first expedition, his plans respecting the site for the new colony have undergone great alteration. It is now proposed that the Boyne (of Oxley), which river comes into Rodd's Bay at Port Curtis, shall be accurately examined, with the view of ascertaining its eligibility as a shipping port ; and that a party shall proceed some distance up the stream to survey the interior. Should the result turn out unsatisfactory, Colonel Barney intend...

HORSE STOCK IN INDIA. To the Editor of the Maitland Mercury. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 30 January 1847

HORSE STOCK IN INDIA. To the Editor of the Maitland Mercury. - Sir,-A variety of opinions having lately been publicy expressed upon the subject of shipping horses to India, I beg to forward you those of an old resident in Calcutta, extracted from I etters re- ceived a few days since per Phantom. These may perhaps have the more weight, as the writer is himself largely interested in such matters. I am,Sir, Your very obedient servant, R. B. Ü. Maitland, 11th December, 1846. " The average price of the batch per Garland Grove was 472 rs., a price which, after deducting the value of the casualties, leaves little or nothing to the shipper. The times just now, however, are very bad-the depression amongst the mercantiles being fully at great as it ever was in Sydney. From what I see and hear, it is my impression that the walers, as they are called, are growing into favour. In the recent sale, any horse show- ing good shape and breeding brought from 600 to 800 rs As a lot, these horses were b...

--- *"> To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. SIR,-I offer no apology for calling the notice of your readers to your leading article of the 16th January, reiterating the propriety of Mr. Alex. M' Leay's resignation of his seat at the Council Board. The principles of your publication, and the forcible and consistent manner in which you have sustained them, are sufficient proof to me that you will give insertion to my remarks without mutila- tion. The truth is, Sir, that there are circumstances connected with this article which give ita peculiar value in my eyes ; but previous to my entering upon the peculiarity of that value, I shall endea- vour to palliate Mr. M'Leay from the attack which on more than one occasion has been made by you upon his political conduct. * u ,.- . If Mr. M'Leay had been one of those presump- tuous and pushing individuals that perpetually disgust the public, an obtrusive orator, a mere place-hunter, a man in the habit of forcing his claims and connexio...

THE MURDERERS OF MR. BEVERIDGE. (From the Port Phillip Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 30 January 1847

THE MURDERERS OF MR. BEVERIDGE. CFrom the Port Phillip Herald, j " It is, I am aware, of great importance to the community that the blacks of this colony should be equally and as easily amenable to the law as the other parts of the population." JUSTICE A'BECKETT. Such was the just and proper language of his Honor the Resident Judge when discharging the notorious Koort Kirrup in the month of March last, after an incarceration of no less than thirteen months. At that period, a fierce and sanguinary savage, the murderer of one white man, and at- tempted slayer of another, was turned adrift from his prison walls, through the utter incompetency of our present criminal code to deal with him as he deserved ; and yet, in the teeth of such a startling fact, and the repeated representations of our present and late Judge (Mr. Therry), one session our so-called Legislature has since passed away without the least indication at head quarters exhibiting itself of an inclination to remedy one the g...

SWAN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 30 January 1847

SWAN RIVER. THE following completes our summary of news from Western Australia : Tobacco is becoming an object of cultivation. A sample recently produced and manufactured in the colony, is pronounced by competent judges to be mild, in every respect of excellent quality, and only to, require age. The season had till lately been peculiarly fa- vourable to the crops, which were expected to be very abundant, but recent droughts will operate injuriously on some. Frnits also have succeeded, and are increasing in quantity, particularly those of the Meditter rancan. A company is spoken of for the culture of the vine, and ultimately of the orange and other ex- port fruits. Ten pound shares are suggested two pounds to be paid up. The Perth Inquirer calculates that a 20-acre vineyard might be esta- blish^ for £1000, which would yield at least 30 tons' of raisins annually,- value at 6d per lb. £1,630", while the whole cost of management could'not exceed £680. The capital of the com- pany would ...
