To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 20 March 1847

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. It is safer to be attacked by some men, than to he protected by them. - Anon. SIR,-I perceive by several articles which have ap- peared in your paper, that you have had your hands full of late, and that you have been well employed in exposing the tricks and puerilities of that no- torious individual who dubs himself "A Moreton   Bay Man." it appears he has again been at his dirty work, slandering not only yourself, but the inhabitants of the district generally - opening the flood-gates of dissension, and pouring the waters of suspicion and hatred over the land. Stick to him like a leech, and you may rely upon it you will be well supported by every reflecting man in this community. In my humble opinion you ought to call upon him to take out a patent for his discoveries in defamation; for he enjoys a   marked, if not an honourable, distinction in that line. His task is comparatively easy, for it re- quires neither acc...

NORTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 20 March 1847

NORTH AUSTRALIA. The Sydney Herald of yesterday announces that Lieutenant Governor Denison has received a despatch, stating that Her Majesty has been pleased to revoke her letters patent and commis- sions respecting the colonization of North Aus- tralia; and that the Thomas Lowry (now in the   stream) is, consequently, to be detained. We are authorised to state that this announce- ment, from first to last, is a weak invention of the enemy. The Governor of Nova Scotia would as soon have been addressed on the subject of North Australia as the Governor of Van Diemen's Land. But the best proof of the hoax played off on our credulous contemporary is to be found in the fact that at the moment our Sydney correspondent was closing his letter last evening, Colonel Gray had received a memorandum from D. Commissary General Ramsay, requesting him to go on board directly as the Thomas Lowry was under orders to sail instanter. - Parramatta Messenger, March 6.

THE PENAL SETTLEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 20 March 1847

THE PENAL SETTLEMENTS. Rumours as to the intention of her Majesty's Mini-     sters, with respect to Norfolk Island and North Australia, have been for some time in circulation,   but the following statements may be relied upon. The number of convicts at Norfolk Island is to be immediately reduced to about five hundred, and .the establishment will be reduced to one hundred and fifty soldiers and a few civilians. The Pes- tonjee Bomanjee embarked her convicts in Eng- land for Norfolk Island, but at Plymouth she was ordered to proceed to Hobart Town, where she had landed her men, and been chartered to bring up eight hundred convicts from Norfolk Island : other vessels were also to be chartered for   (the same service. Lieutenant Governor Denison has received a despatch, stating that Her Majesty has been pleased to revoke her letters patent and commissions respecting the colonization of North Australia.

THE [?] Courier. SATURDAY, MARCH 20, 1847. THE LATE DISASTROUS SHIPWRECK. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 20 March 1847

THE Moreton Bay Courier.                   SATURDAY, MARCH 20, 1847.         THE LATE DISASTROUS SHIPWRECK. To judge by the event, is an error all abuse, and all commit ; for in every instance courage, if crowned with success, is heroism ; if clouded by defeat, temerity. When Nelson fought his battle in the Sound, it was the result alone that decided whether he was to kiss a hand at a Court, or a rod at a Court-martial.—Colton. THERE can be no doubt that corporate bodies more readily incur responsibility than individuals ; and we are forcibly con- vinced of the justness of this observation by reflecting on the melancholy circum- stances attendant on the loss of the Sove- reign steamer. A most ungracious task has been imposed upon us ; nevertheless, unpalatable though it may be, we feel bound to enquire into every par...

CAPTAIN FAUNCE. - What! hang the partridge shooter ; the grouse stealer, and the military offender? MR. CAMPBELL. - Yes. CAPTAIN FAUNCE. - The answer is - Yes! but it is returned in the warmth of debate ; I cannot believe it is meant. Report of Queanbeyan Meeting, in Sydney Herald, 19th Feb. We forebode last week tot ake notice of the above marvellous dialogue, in the anxious hope that Mr. Charles Campbell would have most positively denied the truth of the report which appeared in the Sydney Herald -           and as it appears that it was neither a reporter's misconstruction, nor uttered in the warmth of de- bate, but the real offspring of premeditated   thought - no bastard bantling, but the acknow- ledged heir to Mr. Campbe...

FIRE AT PORT ADELAIDE. (From the South Australian Register, Jan. 30) Port Adelaide, Friday evening, 7 o'clock. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 20 March 1847

FIRE AT PORT ADELAIDE. ( From the South Australian Register, Jan. 30. ) Port Adelaide, Friday evening, 7 o'clock. This afternoon, at half-past one o'clock, a fire broke out in the sail loft of Mr. Bayly, at the Port. It was first observed by Mrs. Forsythe, "who occupied a cottage behind. A few things were removed from Mr. Bayly's, but the spread- ing of the flames was so rapid that the remainder was destroyed. Even Mrs. Forsythe, early as her knowledge of the accident was, stated that she was able to save nothing but her bed and two boxes. Captain Wakeling's Inn, adjoining Mr. Bayly's, was in flames in an instant. An idea may be formed of the powder-train way in which the fire ran on, from the fact, that Mrs. Wakeling had scarcely time to escape, and as she left her house her clothes were in flames. Captain Wake- ling succeeded in saving two hogsheads of brandy, all the wearing apparel, and deeds to the value of £4000. All the stock and furniture was   destroyed. The ol...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 20 March 1847

ENGLISH EXTRACTS.                     The English have taken possession of a portion of the Island of Madagascar. Lord Stair is appointed Keeper of the Great Seal of Scotland. Out of our forty-two colonies, twenty-five enjoy a local representative constitution. The Rob Roy steam-ship, Lieutenant Knocker, R.N., commander, is bringing, on the average, £100,000 of gold from the recently discovered Russian gold mines every month to the port of Hull, and the London steamers are regularly taking equal or greater quantities. Mr. Sergeant, convicted at Dublin of having forged a bill of exchange, has been sentenced to seven years' transportation. When George IV. was quitting Ireland, in 1821, this individual was under a similar sentence for a similar charge. His wife rushed into the water after the King's barge, with a petition in her hand praying for pardon, whic...

SOUTH AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 27 March 1847

SOUTH AMERICA. The accounts from.the seat of war on the Rio de | la. Plata.continue to be disastrous,.as regards the British and French. There have beeri three actions within four months, each of .them attended with loss of British lives, and great damage to the British marine^ It is one'of those '" little wars" so much and so justly deprecated by the Duke. Rosas has hitherto proved himself more than a match for the British and French combined, Who have the greatest difficulty in preserving the navigation of the rivers, and this at a frightful riskT and1 constantly some sacrifice, greater or less of life and treasure. The last accounts tell us that Rosas and Oribe have issued a proclamation, that the officers and men of any boats or vessels, bearing an English or French ensign, shall be treated as pirates, and put to death. In Bahia, a negro hud been 90 fortunate as to find a rough diamond, weighing lh octavas (of an ounce), but was foolish enough to sell it for 300 miireis-£35. The...

THE PRINCE "IN HIS BEAUTY," AND THE PARSON. (From Douglas Jerrola's Weekly Newspaper.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 27 March 1847

THE PRINCE "IN HIS BEAUTY," AND THE PARSON. . fFrom Douglas Jerrola's Weekly Newspaper. J It has recently been laid down by a learned. Judge, that sermons are not matters for public , criticism. Nevertheless, and in no way heeding the dictum, we shall proceed to consider a dis- course of the Rev. Hugh M'Neile ;-a discourse just issued from the press, for the peculiar profit and delectation of those who, on the 2nd August, were not among the delighted congregation of St. Jude's, Liverpool. The sermon is thus entitled : " ' Everv eye shall see htm ;' or Prince Albert's Visit to Liverpool, used in illustration of the Second Coming of Christ.'" The visit of a Field-Marshal to Liverpool il- lustrating the Second Advent of the Redeemer ! Saxe-Gotha and Our Saviour ? Some time ago Mr. Bruce, passing down Holy well-street, indignantly shattered the window of a bookseller. The tradesman had exhibited a print, in the opinion of Mr. Bruce, offensive to the moral sense of a Christian ; and for ...
