THE WOOL MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 30 January 1847
THE WOOL MARKET. The following article from a kte number of the London Morning Chronicle wal be found worthy of perusal. Private letters received in Sydney expiess an opinion that the repeal of the Corn Laws would have a considerable effect upon the trade of the home manufacturing districts, and that a consequent rise in the price of wool might be safely anticipated : The wool sales which have just been concluded .deserve some particular notice. The dull state in which the woollen trade has been for some time in the manufacturing districts was not calculated to raise the hopes of importers, who were conse- quently rather prepared for some diminution in the price at the recent sales. Still it is generally admitted that with the exception of some parcels of Australian wools of good quality and condition, which sold well, the sale has gone off'worse than .was expected. At this season of the year, when .large sales must quickly follow each other during the arrivals of colonial wool, and...

THE &nbsp; &nbsp; Moreton Bay Courier. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; 8SATURDAY, JANUARY 30, 1S17. As the squatters have just finished shear- ing, we hope they will lose no time in putting in practice the suggestions to which we called their particular attention on the 2nd instant. The present is a time of more than ordinary importance for &nbsp; them to be up and doing, to be organising and making preparations for the battle of the next session of the Legislative Council, upon the result of which, perchance, hangs their political destiny for years to come. &nbsp; Every squatter, every townsman, should attend a public meeting to be called for the purpose of setting forth our grievances, and signing a memorial to the Govern- ment in order to get them redressed. We have made repeated appeals to the Executive Government on behalf of the inhabitants, fo...

THE Moreton Bay Courier. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 1847. He who has been the means of covering only a few acres of a wilderness with verdure, beauty, and fruitfumess, could not view the result of his labours without conscious satisfaction ; but how much more noble is his enjoyment who is the honoured instrument of ameliorating the present miseries of mankind. Rev. B. H. Draper. WE have learned with surprise and regret that the Moreton Bay Benevolent Society is likely to meet a disgraceful end, purely from the niggardliness and apathy of the, classes it was designed to benefit. Con- tributions from the country have entirely ceased, and the sole burthen of supporting it has fallen upon the townspeople ; al- though it is notorious that three-fourths of its funds have been appropriated to the relief of persons from the interior. The beneficial influences of this Society ha...

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGNECE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 6 February 1847
BllITISlï AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. ENGLISH news to the' 18th October, via Hobart - Town, has been received in this colony. The fol- lowing are the mosjt interesting items of intelli- gence, gleaned from our various contemporaries : Again has tlie failure of the potato crop deso- lated Ireland, and the pressure of famine has extended into the Highlands of Scotland, and been even felt in England. The failure is is even more universal than last yeal. The Govei nmenl has -done'all that appeals possible to provide against it. Deposits oi meal have been formed, heavy assessments on the baronies for the purpose of affording work, have been rendered bearable by the Government advancing the money. Still the niisery is too universal not to be productive of distuibances, and we regret to find accounts of provision riots all over the south and west. In ~ane place, Dungarvon, the people come into colli- sion with the military, and by the fire of the latter two were killed and several wounded. T...

THE BUNYIP, OR KINE PRATIE. (From the Port Phillip Patriot.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 6 February 1847
THE BUNYIP, OR KINE PRATIE. &nbsp; (From the Port Phillip Patriot.) &nbsp; From the earliest date of our intercourse with the aborigines there has always been a traditional rumour amongst them of a creature hitherto sup- posed to be fabulous, and many extraordinary stories have from time to time been current as to the conformation and habits of this animal. Speculation and enquiry have been on the rack to find out, first - whether there was any reasonable foundation for these traditional rumours; and &nbsp; secondly - supposing the animal to exist, to what genus or species of animal does it belong? At &nbsp; the Hunter River the reports of the natives would lead us to classify it with the carnivorous species. In this locality it is called Yaa-hoo, and is des- cribed as having much resemblance in form to the human figure, but with frightful features the feet like those of a man, but reversed or turned backwards. In the immediate neighbourhood of the ri...

THE Moreton Bay Courier &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1847. &nbsp; The investigation, at the instance of the Attorney General, touching the alleged shooting of the blacks at York's Hollow on the 20th December last, was brought to a close yesterday, full particulars of which will be found in our local columns. The publication of the evidence will be "gall and wormwood" to the writers on &nbsp; this subject in the Sydney journals. The self-styled Philanthropos and the More- ton Bay Man, if they have any manli- ness about them, will now come forward and confess that they have been deceived. Shall we drag their real names into day- light? We shall do no such thing; in &nbsp; &nbsp; fact we care not who they may be. We have our suspicions, and those suspicions might perhaps be satisfied. But who would take the trouble to attain so wretched an ob...
