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

MEXICO. Santa Anna, as it appears, has suddenly become the chief head and hope of the war party in Mexico, which, indeed, embraces the whole of the popula- tion. He was, at latest dates, in the city of Mexico, arranging the plan of an extensive campaign against the several American armies, organising, recruiting, encouraging, exhorting the inhabi- tants, not only of the capital, but the whole coun- try, with a view to meet the danger threatening Mexico, with the whole of her defensive resources. On the 14th ult., he reached Azetta, a small town distant ten or twelve leagues from the city of Mexico. On the 15th September, Santa Anna arrived at the capital, amid rejoicings more enthusiastic than had ever been witnessed before. The next day the most vigorous measures, so far as declarations go, were taken by the provisional government. A levy of 30,000 men to recruit the army was ordered ; requisitions were forthwith transmitted to all the principal places in the republic, for an immed...

STEAM TO ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 6 March 1847

STEAM TO ENGLAND. We have been favoured with the following copy of a letter addressed by Sir George Larpent and the Hon. F. Scott, to Lord Grey, on the steam question. We believe his lordship's reply iiad not been received by the end of October :- Australian Steam Company Rooms, No 30, Great Winchester-street, Broad-street, London, 19th October, 1846. To the Right Honourable Earl Grey, Her Majesty's Secretary of State for the Co- lonies, &c., &., &c.     My Lord,-On the 17th April last, a meeting of Merchants, bankers, traders, and others, con- nected with or interested in the several colonies of Australia and New Zealand, was held at the Lon- don Tavern.   The object of the meeting was, to endeavour to extend the benefits of Steam Navigation to the Australian Colonies, and a large Committee was appointed to examine the merits of the various routes suggested, by which a communication by steam vessels between these coloni...

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

NEW ZEALAND. We have Wellington papers to the 3rd ultimo, but they are devoid of intelligence of an interesting or political character. The news from the different settlements was of a peaceful character : for though some slight de- predations had been committed by the more turbu- lent of Rangihaeata's followers, no violence or outbreak had occurred. The New Zealand Government Bill appears to find little favour with the colonists, and a petition for its repeal is in course of preparation. The first annual report of the Committee of the Wellington Savings' Bank had been submitted to the public. . The amount of deposits during the first seven months was £900, and the number of accounts opened ninety-four.-Sydney Herald.

LATEST FROM THE PORT PHILLIP DELEGATE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 6 March 1847

LATEST FROM THE PORT PHILLIP   DELEGATE.   Our last public despatch from Mr. Cunning- hame was dated the 15th August. We are now, by the kindness of a friend, enabled to give the following extract of a letter from that gentleman to a friend in Melbourne, dated the 16th Septem- ber, and containing the following important in- formation :. " You will have seen, from my public despatches and otherwise, that I have been as successful for the colony as I could hope for. I have secured sound principles for the settlement of the squat- ting question, and have been asked by Lord Grey to return to town to assist in framing the regula- tions for carrying these principles into operation, which I think shows that I have obtained his con- fidence, I also think Separation is secure, and that the terms upon which that will be obtained are likely to be satisfactory. Emigration I hope also soon to see set a-going, though I'm afraid it may be a longer period before we get tha...

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 6 March 1847

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. By the Soudahbah, arrived in Sydney on the 15th ultimo, we have recieved English news to the 4th November. This vessel had a splendid run of 101 days, having left on the 5th November. She made Cape Otway on the eighty-seventh day after leaving the Downs. This is the quickest voyage made this season. We have not obtained intelli- gence from home, of a late date, so direct for some time. The following are the most interesting items :- Cabinet Decision. - The long-expected Cabinet Council has been held, and Government has de- cided that it is not necessary either to open the ports, or to call the Legislature together before the usual time. Parliament now stands adjourned until the 12th day of January. The councils of firmness are always received with respect. The journals which for weeks past have been insisting that the country was in danger of famine, that grain could not be procured to supply the neces- sities of the people, that four millions of qu...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. PETTY SESSIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 6 March 1847

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. PETTY SESSIONS. This Court was opened for the first time on Mon- day last by Captain Wickham, the Police Magi- strate, and Lieut. Blamire. The public appeared to take but little interest in the proceedings, and fewer persons were present than at the commence- ment of the ordinary sittings under the old Court of Requests Act. There were only five cases for adjudication, which perhaps may account for the apathy and indifference manifested by the inha- bitants on this (to us) interesting occasion. Mr. Adams, addressing the Bench, was under- stood to say, that as the senior member of the pro-, fession in this district it, perhaps, might not be considered out of place if he were to offer a few observations on the importance of the measure the Bench were called upon for the first time to put into practical operation. He was of opinion that the present Act contained many good features, and a few inconsistencies ; upon the latter, how- ever, he would not touch on that oc...

COLONIAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 March 1847

COLONIAL NEWS. WE extract the following from the Melbourne Argus:-   DR. LEICHHARDT'S EXPEDITION. Bokkurer, or Charlies Creek, 31st December, 1846.   My dear-,- I write this letter in the hope that I may have an opportunity of sending it prior to leaving this place ; if not, it will be ready to leave at Peak Range,-several of the settlers on the Downs having promised the Doctor that after their shearing is over they will follow in our track as far as that place, and that we were to write letters, &c, and put them in a bottle, which was to be put in the earth at the root of a large tree, which we are to mark, our messenger has not as yet returned from the Downs, and our stay here is tedious in the extreme - most of the party have suffered severely from opthalmia, and which I be- lieve arises from the enormous quantity of flies and mosquitoes, which renders it almost impossi- ble for us at any time to keep our eyes more than half open. The heat is als...

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, MARCH 13, 1847. WRECK OF THE SOVEREIGN STEAMER ON THURSDAY MORNING LAST.— FORTY-FOUR LIVES LOST. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 March 1847

THE Moreton Bay Courier.                 SATURDAY, MARCH 13, 1847. WRECK OF THE SOVEREIGN STEAMER ON THURSDAY MORNING LAST. FORTY-FOUR LIVES LOST. THE melancholy intelligence of the total loss of the Sovereign steamer on the spit outside Amity Point, reached town at a late hour last night. This distressing event occurred in consequence of both engines having broken down while at- tempting to go over the bar. She broke up a few minutes after striking on the spit, and the boats were destroyed at the same time. Only ten persons have been saved ; and of those, three were so serious- ly wounded and disabled, that they were conveyed to the Hospital immediately on their arrival in town. We cannot find words at present to express our feelings on being made acquainted with this sad catastrophe. In common with many others, we have to mourn the loss of friends thus hurried prematurely before...

THE AUSTRALIAN NEWSPAPER. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 March 1847

THE AUSTRALIAN NEWSPAPER. OUR early-taught respect for old age, and pity for   its infirmities, would be effectual under ordinary circumstances in restraining at least the expres- sion of impatience at its most petulant twaddling;   but we cannot forget our duty to the public and   to ourselves, and as the Australian Journal of the 25th ultimo has diverged from its usually harmless course for the purpose of making a most wanton attack on the Editor of this paper, the law of self-defence warrants a few observations, even at the risk of exalting our venerable anta- gonist to that notice from the inhabitants of this district which he could not otherwise hope for. As the literary tastes of our readers will have precluded the possibility of their having perused the article in question, it will be necessary that we should extract for comment such passages as appear to have any meaning, and as proof of the   difficulty of this task, we pr...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 March 1847

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. CHARITY SERMON. - The Rev. John Gregor will preach a charity sermon at the Episcopalian Church in North Brisbane, on Sunday morning next (to-morrow). After the sermon a collection   will be made in aid of the funds of the Benevolent Society, which we regret to state are at a very low ebb. It is to be hoped that the inhabitants will contribute liberally on the occasion. ESCAPE OF A BLACK PRISONER. - On Monday last one of the aboriginal natives was apprehended   on a warrant charging him with having attempted to take the life of Mr. Richards, at Amity Point, on the 27th ultimo, the particulars of which were published under the head of original correspon- dence in our last number. The name of the black is Canary, and on being placed at the bar of the Police-office on the same day, he underwent a pre- liminary examination before the Magistrates, who "remanded him unt'il Mr. Richards was able to give his evidence. The prisoner was ordered to ...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 March 1847

NEW ZEALAND. WE have received New Zealand journals by the Thomas Lord, via Sydney, to the 6th ult. The steamer Driver had sailed direct for Eng- land. H. M. S. steamer Inflexible, it appears, has sustained considerable damage in consequence of her having grounded near Goat Island, in Sydney harbour. She was ten days making the passage from Sydney to Auckland, and the pumps were in requisition continually during the voyage. It was thought that she would have to proceed to Bombay to be docked, not being fit, in her present condition, for active service. The inhabitants of Auckland had presented an address on the 29th January, to His Excellency Captain Grey, which was well received, and to which he returned a suitable reply, and assured the deputation that he would exert himself to pro- mote the interest of the district, particularly with respect to the land claims.

NEW COIN. - FIVE SOVEREIGN PIECES. - Some five-sovereign pieces have lately been struck by   Mr. Wyon, and though as yet but in the hands of a few of the authorities, they stand as portion of     the coin of the realm ; but whether they will be called out for general use the government have not decided. This gold piece is considered to be the most perfect of coins. In point of size it bears resemblance to a crown piece, but otherwise it is much neater in detail.

THE GREAT BRITAIN DISASTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 March 1847

THE GREAT BRITAIN DISASTER. We anticipated the explanation of the stranding of the Great Britain. We well know that in all cases of disaster, whether by sea or land, nobody is to blame. Before we read Captain Claxton's account of the Great Britain's mishap, we were quite prepared to learn that it had been the result of the best seamanship, the best care, and the best skill. And, after the perusal of Capt. Claxton's explanation, it appears to us that, if the Great Britain had not gone ashore in Dundrum Bay, it would have been owing to some injudicious con- duct on the part of her commander. Everything was done as it ought to have been done, and the consequence is that the Great Britain is wrecked in Dundrum Bay. It is the wilful way of ships ; the better you navigate and handle them, the worse they behave, and when you have been at all mortal pains to take them safe out of channel, they go bang ashore, heaven only knows why or how. It is their untoward nature. The case of H. M. ship ...
