VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 27 March 1847

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. While upon his death-bed, Sir Eardley Wilmot expressed himself in writing to the following effect :- " The exaggerations and falsehoods which have beset Downing-street respecting crime here, coupled with the total neglect, of the Colonial-office on the most particular subject thereof, is remarka- ble. It is a fact, that, up to the moment of my recall, my despatches, particularly my strong one of December, 1845, on that particular subject, were never answered ; and no directions or in- structions, whatever they were, ever sent from Downing-street respecting the lessening or pre- venting that crime; and all the arrangements and directions relative thereto, always emanated from Mr. Forster and myself. When, therefore, Mr. Ewart was about to bring on his ' inquiry,' he was invariably stopped by the Minister inform- ing him that important measures were in agitation, &c., whereby he was induced to withdraw his motion. When he was about to bring it on again, he w...

-,WI EKG LI S H EXTRACTS. "^FuAupiN WooL.-rSeveníl parcels'of wpol, re jfi'eijred here from the west,' have been found to have' their weight increased and quality injured ,by the following process The fleeces are opened j^nd the insides wet and stuffed with tags of value '¿ess'.wool, and sometimes even with dirt; after which they are rolled up and packed in the usual way. As it i* customary for the dealers here to assort tiie fleeces without opening them, it is very «as'/for such a fraud to escape all suspicion till it is discovered iby the manufacturer. This was.the Vase with some of the parcels sent to England last Jyear, and from that 01 some other cause, ;i very strong feeling against all American wool exists "with some persons there. Letters by the Cambria tell a story of a manufacturer who attended 'the large auction sales and bought very freely.

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 3 April 1847

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. The late Shipwreck. - Captain Wickham, accompanied by Mr. Thornton, his boat's crew, and several of the natives from Stradbroke Island, reached Cape Moreton on Friday last, having walked along the beach a distance of upwards of twenty miles. They found the bodies of nine males and three females, scattered over a space of eight miles, so that they were compelled to make separate graves for each corpse-a most arduous and disgusting task, and one which could not have beens accomplished without the assistance of   the blacks. The bodies were horribly disfigured, some were without arms and legs, and some with scarcely any flesh upon them. One had been de- prived of his head, and all were more or less mu- tilated. The bodies of Isaac Smith, a man named John Higgins, and Mrs. Bishop were identified, the,latter by the ring which she wore on her fin- ger. It was stated in our last number that Mr. Gore's child had been found with the other bodies. This is inco...

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, APRIL 3, 1847. THE LABOUR QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 3 April 1847

THE Moreton Bay Courier SATURDAY, APRIL 3, 1847. THE LABOUR QUESTION. that the present movement against the introduction of la- bour, under the proposed modified system of transportation, would not be beneficial to the working classes. This is easily demonstrated, and we now proceed to the proof . It is generally known that at the pre- sent rate of wages stock-keeping is not a profitable occupation ; hence we find that the squatters are curtailing their esta- blishments, and have resolved upon boil- ing down every wether and every head of cattle capable of producing sufficient tallow to cover expenses. It is expected that the number thus disposed of will be greater than the last year's increase ; consequent- ly the squatting interest instead of ad- vancing will be standing still, and, if labour be not introduced shortly, must go backwards. Now it is a well ascertained fact, that in a society advancing to opu- lence, the rate of wages and the means of subsistence are more liberal tha...

THE Moreton Bap Courier. SATURDAY, APRIL 10, 1847. NEW ROAD.—IMPORTANT DISCOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 10 April 1847

THE, The Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, APRIL 10, 1847. NEW ROAD.-IMPORTANT DISCOVERY. The discovery of a good practicable road for wool-teams from the south end of Darling Downs to the head of the navi- gation at Ipswich, which would obviate the necessity for sending the drays by the present circuitous and difficult route over Hodgson's Gap,has long been a desideratum with the stockholders in that part of the dis- trict. We have now the pleasure of an- nouncing that a stockman named Henry Alphan, in the service of Messrs. Leslie of Canning Downs, has found an excel- lent road over the Main Range, about two and a half miles to the southward of Cunningham's Gap. The new line of road comes down on Reynolds' Creek over a very fine leading ridge, and is only two miles longer than the present one through Cunningham's Gap. There is only one " pinch" on the range, and a scrub about three-quarters of a mile wide, which is not dense, and can easily be cut through at very little cost. We unde...

NORTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 10 April 1847

NORTH AUSTRALIA. Mitch compassion being felt for the ill-starred elderly gentleman, his family, and friends, who are at present subsisting on salt junk, biscuit, and grog ; and, encamped on Facing Island, are la- bouring under the pitiable delusion that they are founding a colony; we have been induced to publish extracts, which will be found in our fourth page, from the journal of a friend at Port Curtis, whose name, for obvious reasons, we suppress. "We also subjoin a few additional particulars. The spot chosen for the encampment on Facing Island is healthy and picturesque-a small elevated ridge of land, jutting into the sea, and forming ' by its projection an excellent boat harbour. Thirty-one tents are pitched upon it ; that of the Superintendent distinguished by its proximity to the royal standard. In the valley below, facing the harbour, are the Commissariat store and three other tents. A small path cut in the side of the hill, Seems to be the only labour performed by the colon...
