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

NORTH AUSTRALIA. EXTRACTS from a closely written MS. of 80 pages -the journal of a passenger by the Lord Auck- land - commencing with the departure of that vessel from Sydney, and ending with the arrival of the Secret at Port Curtis : - Left Sydney on the 8th January. Jan. 17th. Fine day, and fair wind. This being   Sunday, preparations were made for divine service.   Mr. Merewether, who was at one time studying for the Church, officiated. Everything went off with   decorum, save when Mr. Merewether once or twice laughed - a very improper thing on such a solemn occasion. Mr. Usher, the chief mate, perfomee     the part of clerk with becoming seriousness. 18th. Strong variable current to the southward   -ship's progress seven knots per hour by the log ; but an observation taken to-day proves that in reality it is only two. 19th. Foul wind.

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 10 April 1847

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE.     By the Angelina, Sultana, and Alexander, ar- rived in Sydney, we have received files of English papers to the 3rd December. Pailiament was to meet for the despatch of business on the 19th January. Lord John Russell has been elected Lord Rector of the University of Glasgow by the casting vote of the President. Mr. Wordsworth the poet, was the unsuccessful candidate. Mr. Eyre, formerly of South Australia, is said to have received the appointment of Lieutenant Governor of New Zealand under Governor Grey. Trade was on the whole more brisk than is usually the case at the commencement of the win- ter. Money was plentiful, and the funds were in- clined to rise. Several communications with the Ministry re- specting steam between England and Sydney had taken place; the objection is the expense, which the Ministers do not feel inclined to incur unless the colony show some anxiety on the subject by voting a sum in aid. The report ...

THE BOTTLE TREE. To the Editor of the Australian Journal. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 17 April 1847

THE BOTTLE TREE. To the Editor of the Australian Journal. Sir,-Should you deem the following worthy a place in your valuable journal, you will please give itjinscrtion.-I am, Your most obedient humble servant, WM. STEPHENSON, M.R.C.S.L.,and Cor. M.L.S., and G.S., &c, Bridge-street, Sydney, March 29, 1347. During my travels in the interior of this fine country, I took notes of such natural produc- tions which might be converted to some useful purpose. There are a great many shrubs and herbaceous plants in Australia, which possess very active agents in their composition, but for the want of apparatus,experiments respecting their constituent qualities could not be conducted. I beg leave, however, to notice one or two which yielded valua- ble results. In some localities,as the Bogan, the Macquarie, the Balonne, &c, there are many species of a sal solaceous shrub, upon the foliage of which sheep and cattle fed freely. On tasting some of those shrub3,1 found that in the la...

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, APRIL 17, 1847. THE PROPOSED SQUATTING REGULATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 17 April 1847

sneaa-g»a-ana« THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, APRIL 17, 1847. THE PROPOSED SQUATTING REGULA- TIONS. The new rules proposed by the Home Government for the occupation of the Crown Lands, which we published in our last number, we have reason to believe will give satisfaction to most of the stock- holders throughout the colony. We must confess that they are more comprehensive and liberal than we expected; at the same time it would be quite as well if one or two of the rules were to undergo revision before they were finally promulgated by the Executive Government here. Much, however, will depend upon His Excellency the Governor, in determining the minor details, whether the prospective provisions of the regulations with regard to acquir- ing leases of new runs will be beneficial to the stockholders or otherwise : in this respect the new rules are very vague, and unsatisfactorily worded. We shall not on this occasion enter at any length upon their political bearing, but merely confine...

SAILING DIRECTIONS FOR THE NORTH CHANNEL IN TO MORETON BAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 24 April 1847

SAILING DIRECTIONS FOR THE NORTH CHANNEL INTO MORETON BAY. CAPE MORETON is the north-eastern point of . Moreton Island, and is visible from a ship's deck at the distance of eight leagues. When first seen from the southward, it appears to be detached, as the land-between it and the higher parts of the island is very low. With the" exception of Flinders' Rocks, which lie N.N.E., distant three miles from the north projection of the cape, there does not appear to be any out-lying danger. Vessels entering Moreton Bay by the North Channel should, in coming from the southward, pass about a mile to the northward of the cape, and steer W. half N., until the N.W. extreme of tlie bushes at Cumboyuro Point bears S. by E., and the north extreme of Cape Moreton E. by S , -. half S. ; the depth will then be 7£ fathoms (L.W.}, °and the outer buoy, at A, will bear S. W. half W. about a mile and a third distant. The Glass House Hills will be seen (in clear weather) as in the sketch, with the highest ...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 24 April 1847

ENGLISH EXTRACTS                       FREE TRAOE. - Among the most important consequences to be expected from the general re- cognition of free trade principles must be reckoned the abandon ment of the old colonial system. With- out depreciating the advantages of that system under a state of things very different from the present, it would still be impossible to reconcile its continuance with the support of a contrary policy at home. We have already opened, or are about to open, our own ports equally to the pro- duce of our colonies and foreign countries. It is, therefore, unfair, as a principle, to shut the ports of our dependencies against the introduction of foreign produce. Fornu-rly, when we debarred our colonists from the purchase of alien mer- chandise, we debarred ourselves no less from the enjoyment of a non-colonial traffic. But th...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE BLACKS AND THEIR AMATEUR PROTECTORS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 24 April 1847

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE BLACKS AND THEIR AMATEUR PROTECTORS. THE Australian Journal has lately made itself liable to the grave charge of attempting to injure the characters of private individuals in this district by printing and publishing several garbled, false, and malicious statements respecting the treatment of the aborigines. In a late number of that jour- nal, received by the last steamer, appears the fol- lowing paragraph, under the head of " Moreton Bay" : " Some months since a paragraph appeared in the Moreton Bay Courier, stating that a hut keeper on Captain Griffin's station at the Pine River had received a blow with a waddy on the head from a blackfellow, and that in consequence he became blind. This was followed from time to time by hints that the blacks had threatened to attack the station, and kill Captain Griffin and all his people, &c. The following facts may perhaps throw some light on these announcements. A few days ago a servant of Captain Griffin, named ...

THE Moreton Bay Courier.                 SATURDAY, APRIL 24, 1847.     GENERAL NEWS.   WE have once before called attention to the very injudicious and inconvenient practice of sending mails by sailing vessels when the steamer makes her trips with as much regularity and quickness of despatch as the inhabitants of the district can rea- sonably expect. On the arrival of the Tamar on Sunday last, it was ascertained that a mail, containing several documents of public and private importance, as well as the greater portion of the newspapers, had been sent by one of the vessels which sailed on the 10th instant, and which has not yet arrived. A good deal of incon- venience and perplexity might have been avoided had the mail been sent by the more certain and quickest conveyance. We would advise correspondents in Syd- ney to direct their letters " per ...

J BREACHES OF THE PUBLICANS' ACT. -- Mr. Thomas Moore, of the Caledonian Hotel, was sum- moned before the Magistrates on the 14th instant, and pleaded guilty to an information charging him with having allowed his lamp to remain ex- tinguished on the night of the 3id instant. Mr. Moore stated that it occurred in consequence oï its having been broken in a " lark" some time previous. The Bench, however, considered that sufficient time had elapsed to admit of its having been repaired, but as it was the first oilence, the lowest penalty of 20s. and costs was inflicted. Mr. George Furber, of the Golden Fleece, ap- peared, to answer two informations for a similar oiîèricè,' which were dismissed in consequence of informalities.
