REVIEW OF THE WOOL TRADE FOR TEN YEARS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 February 1847

REVIEW OF THE WOOL TRADE FOR TEN YEARS. In 1831, the total quantity of sheep and lambs' wool imported from foreign countries, and from our own colonies, amounted to 31,652,020 lbs. In 1841, the total quantity amounted to 56,179,641 lbs. The increase of imports, therefore, in ten years, has been 24,527,642 lbs., or 77 per cent. An increase of trade, however, does not always bring a profit of trade ; but in the case of the wool trade, the nation has not only increased her activity, but increased her profit. Notwithstanding the total increase in the ten years' import amount to 24,527,642 lbs., yet the increase of imports from foreign Europe is only 1,360,205 lbs. And seeing that in 1831 we re-exported 2,554,455 lbs., and in 1841, only 1,025,962 lbs. (making a diference of 1,825,493 lbs.) in effect we imported less wool from foreign Europe in 1841, than in 1831, by 168,288 lbs. The increase of the wool trade, therefore, does not result from trade with foreign Europe. From whence, then, ...

COLONIAL. NEW ZEALAND.—HEKI IN ARMS! [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 February 1847

COLONIAL. NEW ZEALAND. - HEKI IN ARMS ! The John Bull brought no papers from Auck- land, but confirms the rumour that Heki had again taken up arms against the British. A private letter, brought by this vessel, also confirms the report; and further, that this notorious chief had 700 followers, who had de- cided upon a new mode of warfare, namely, to "bush fight," - thinking thereby to have the   advantage over our "Regulars," in "sharp-     shooting." The schooner Ann, which left Auckland just before the John Bull, had heard nothing of these unpleasant rumours. - Australian,

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 February 1847

CHINA. The following extract from the circular of Messrs. Hughesdon and Co , of Canton, gives a succinct view of the commercial condition of China :- " A glance at the statistical accounts of the China trade shows that every year there is an in- creasing disproportion between our imports and our exports, the former now exceeding the latter by about £3,000,000 sterling. The rise in the value of Sycee silver proves very clearly that there is a heavy drain of bullion from this coun- try ; since the war it has gradually advanced from 2 per cent. pm. to 8 and 9 per cent. The balance in trade being therefore against China, it is evi- dent that a new outlet must be provided for returns. The difficulty arises in the inability only to take larger supplies, as the Chinese can produce an (almost) unlimited quantity of their staple articles. The export of raw silk, for instance, this year exceeds the previous by about 50 per cent., but the unremunerating prices at home, together with the heavy ...

PURE ARABIAN HORSES. (From the Liverpool Albion.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 February 1847

PURE ARABIAN HORSES. (From the Liverpool Albion.)   From the attendants who brought over the Arabian horses for her Majesty several interesting details have been given respecting those fine and sagacious animals. It is stated they arc of the "Kohlan," or first-class of the Arabian breed of   horses. Among the numerous admirable acts of Mahomet, not the least worthy of attention may be said to be the formation of those breeding studs which, there is every reason to believe, laid the real foundation of the perfection of the Arabian horse. Arabia (anciently Arabia Felix) has been justly renowned for ages for the swiftness, patience of fatigue, spirit, and docility of temper of its breed of horses. The pure Arabians are smaller than our race horses, seldom exceeding fourteen hands two inches high, and are never known in tropical climates to turn roarers, or require curbs. The following interesting tradition of the origin of the "Knochlani," or " Killian," or no...

THE CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 February 1847

THE CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. News to the 25th November has been received at the Cape of Good Hope. We extract the fol- lowing items from the South Australian Register. A magnificent work is about to be commenced at Table Bay, under the title of a breakwater, for converting a part of the Bay into a Harbour of Refuge, secure at all seasons and in all weathers. Besides the mercantile facilities this work will afford, it will become a safe place of resort for ships of the Royal Navy, and offer a powerful in- ducement to vessels of all nations to touch at the Cape. To accomplish this magnificent under- taking, a sum of three hundred thousand pounds sterling will be required, and a proportionably large amount of labour. The Home Government offers to advance the money as a loan, to be re- funded with very low interest, by a sum of £15,000 per annum, which can readily be raised upon the revenues of the harbour itself, and will suffice to liquidate the whole debt in a moderate time. To meet the di...

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 February 1847

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. The following closes our summary of English news by the latest arrivals :- . The Times Commissioner has been sent to the Highlands of Scotland. He dates his first letter from Ardgay, Ross-shire, on the 22nd September : the result of his investigation thus far is, that there has been a general failure in the potato crop, and that there is consequent scarcity and privation, but that good employment is abundant in the Eastern Highlands, and that with activity and self-dependence the pressure may be met. Conflicting reports as to the meeting of Parlia- ment in November are still afloat. The Dublin Evening Mail avers that Lord John Russell has been overruled by the majority of the Cabinet, and that Parliament is not to meet in November. France has also its dearth and its violences. Bread is continually rising, and the people suffer more and more, with small prospect of alleviation in the winter. The efforts to provide for the in- digent appear, to the En...

COL. BARNEY AND HIS DETRACTORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 February 1847

COL. BARNEY AND HIS DETRACTORS. "In the name, and for the honor, of Old England, the great coloniser of the world, we lastly pro- test against the present mad attempt to leave our harbour this day, to be made, by Col. Barney's expedition. It will cause England to forfeit her character as a colonising nation, and render her at once the scorn of the world that shall hear of all we now write, (as they shall hear), and of the perseverance of the Sydney Government (after the present warning) in so infamous au undertaking."—Australian, Jan. 7,1847. Notwithstanding this grandiloquent protest, the expedition in question did sail on the day appointed for Port Curtis ; and the above earnest appeals to "stop Colonel Barney," to "ry him, as it were,     by a Court Martial," were actually disregarded by Sir Charles Fitz Roy, who, by some fatal hallu- cination, preferred abiding by the opinions of his officers, in place of frustrating the intentions of the Home Governmen...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE ABORIGINES.-INQUIRY. The Attorney-General having ordered an inquisi- tion to take place, touching the alleged shooting of the blacks at York's Hollow, (about two miles from Brisbane,) on the 20th December last, the Police Magistrate summoned all the parties who could give any information on the subject, to at attend at the Police offîce, when the following de- positions were taken. The first witness examined was Thomas Connor, a constable in the Brisbane Police, who, on being duly sworn, suited as fol- lows :-Between the 16th and 20th December last, I was given to understand, by a native named Jackey, that Jackey Jackey, against whom war- rants had been issued for the murder of Mr. Gregor and Mary Shannon, and of Mr. Uhr, was at the native camp, at York's Hollow, where four tribes were assembled for the purpose of holding a corroboree. I proceeded to the camp about eleven o'clock at night, in company with Peter Murphy, a constable, Henry Grattan, a prisoner o...

THE MORETON BAY COURIER         SATURDAY, MARCH 6, 1847     NORFOLK ISLAND AND TRANSPORTA-   TION.         The following is taken from the Melbourne Herald of the 9th instant :-   " A recent private letter from Van Diemen's Land states, on unquestionable authority, that ' the Norfolk Island establishment is to be imme- diately reduced to a very small scale ; only about five hundred of the old hands, with about one hundred soldiers are to be left there. Transpor- tation is not likely to be resumed here, so that tlie probation system in Van Diemen's Land will soon die a natural death. Northern Australia will not be colonised after all-at least with any expirees from this place.' " If the public will take the trouble to refer to our Journal of last Thursday, they will find an extract headed " New Penal Settlement." By it, we may inf...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 6 March 1847

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. Sir W. T. Denison was sworn into office, as Lieutetiant-Governor of Van Diemen's Land, on the 26th January. His speech after the inaugu- ration was brief enough :-'* 1 thank you for the honour you have done me in attending here this day, and 1 hope 1 shall be able to administer the Government to the satisfaction of all." The Advertiser describes him thus : " Ile appears to be a man of quiet, determined disposition, and the lines about his mouth and brow show self-reliance, and thought, and decision. It will be fortunate for himself aud the colony should our estimate of his character in these respects be correct. Ile is rather below than above the middle height ; stout and well propor tioned, with the air more of a civilian than,a military man." One-half the Governor's salary is to be defrayed by the Home Government. Marrying by Lightning. - "Marrying by what P" exclaims the* reader.

DIED. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 6 March 1847

DIED, At Hobart Town, on the 3rd instant, Sir John Eardley Eardley Wilmot, Baronet, late Lieutenant   Governor of Van Diemen's Land. - Sir Eardley Wilmot represented a branch of the Derbyshire family of Wilmot of Osmaston, and was a de- scendant from the ancient house of Eardley of Audeley, in Staffordshire. He was grandson of the Lord Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas who twice refused the Great Seal as Lord Chancellor, with a peerage. Sir Eardley Wilmot was horn in 1783, and was twice married : first, to Elizabeth, daughter of C. H. Parry, Esq., a celebrated physician at Bath ; and, secondly, in 1819, to Elizabeth, eldest daughter of Sir Robert Chester, of Bush Hall, in Hertfordshire.

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier.   Sir,-The following facts relative to the conduct of the blacks towards white people in the Moreton Bay district you would oblige by inserting in next Saturday's paper. Having been some time at Amity Point, and being desirous of returning to the settlement on Saturday last, I agreed to take six or seven blacks up with me, who wished to be at what they call a corrobory, among the blacks at Brisbane. Being just on the point of starting, to my surprise, I was detained by a black named Canary (well known to Mr. Duncan), who held on at the bow of the boat and demanded to be taken on board, saying that he was brother belonging to Mr. Duncan, and bale gerond (or afraid). I told him that I had enough blackfellows on board and would not take him, and told him to go away. The fellow was very insolent, and still held on the boat and prevented my going off, ; at which I held up an oar and threatened him with it, think- ing to frighten him ...

COLONIAL ABSTRACT. The Hobart Town Advertiser says " intelli- gence, from authority on which reliance can be placed, has been received that Colonol Barney has been recalled, and that the scheme of settling a new convict colony has been abandoned, and that Norfolk Island is also to be abandoned." We believe this to be merely a rumour.-A meeting had been held at Hobart Town, at which Sir W. T. Denison, the New Governor of Van Diemen's Land, presided, for the purpose of raising sub- scriptions in aid of the distressed irish.-A match at cricket had been played at Melbourne between the Tradesmen's Club and the Melbourne. Club, which was won by the former scoring 126 runs, whilst their opponents scored 122.-A requisition to the Mayor, to call a public meeting on the subject of the renewal of transportation, is in course-of signature at Melbourne.-The bush- ranger nicknamed Dido, who, in company with Wilson, has become notorious in Van Diemen's Land for his exploits, has been taken ; he wa...
