IMMIGRATION   (From the Government Gazette, April 9.) Whereas, by reason of the difference of climate and: soil, many commodities producible in this colony, such as wine, oil, silk, &c are not pro- duced in the'United Kingdom, and the skilled labourers requisite for their culture or manufacture   cannot in consequence be obtained by the colony from the mother country; and whereas it is deemed expedient to afford to such of-the colonists as may desire to employ their land and capital in-the production of such commodities as aforesaid, the means of providing themselves with the required labourers from such- foreign countries as can supply them : His Excellency the Governor di-   rects it to be notified, that subject to the approval of Her Majesty's Government, and under the conditions hereinafter mentioned, there will be granted to settlers who shall be at the charge of bringing into New-South Wales, for their own services, emigrants from...

TO THE LADIES AND GENTLEMEN OF BRISBANE TOWN, MORETON BAY, [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 24 April 1847

TO THE LADIES AND GENTLEMEN OF BRISBANE TOWN, MORETON BAY, Dear Friends,-I beg to acknowledge the re- ceipt of your kind address, enclosing subscriptions for purchasing a gold watch, dated 24th March, by the hands of Mr. David Bow. During the long residence I had among you, I have often reflected with pleasure at your prompt co-operation in every thing that was good, yet   was not aware that my humble endeavours, as one among you, in striving to instil into the minds of youth moral and religious principles, and of the erection of a suitable building for the same, as well as for the worship of God, was of such a nature as to call for the grateful sentiments of your hearts, in thus presenting me with this un- looked for mark of kindness. Allow me, therefore, to return you my sincere and heartfelt thanks for this your liberal testi- monial, the recollection of which will never be obliterated from my memory ; and whenever I gaze upon the dial's face, and mark the moments as...

THE NEW ROAD. To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 1 May 1847

THE NEW ROAD. To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. SIR,-I have satisfaction in stating that Messrs' Leslie, Mr. John Deuchar, J. Miller, and myself, have carefully inspected the new line of Road, South of Cunningham's Gap, found and marked by Henry Alphin, and have ascertained that it will be a much better road than I expected would have been found over such a range. Mr. Perryman, of the Bush Inn, with the greatest liberality, has come forward and sub- scribed twenty pounds towards the expense of completing the new line ; and as the undertaking will be rather expensive, I trust you will, as a public advocate, use your endeavours to raise sub- scriptions for the same purpose. I need not point out the advantages that will accrue to Brisbane and Ipswich from the opening of the road, as it is pretty certain that the traffic both from part of New England and the Severn will be by the pro- jected route. It is expected that the road will be completed in a few months. Requesting your e...

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, MAY 1, 1847. ABORIGINAL MISSION AT DUNWICH. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 1 May 1847

THE Moreton Bay Courier.                 SATURDAY, MAY 1, 1847. ABORIGINAL MISSION AT DUNWICH. WE stated in our last number that Mr. Vicarrie, the Roman Catholic Missionary at Dunwich, fearing that his life was in danger from the blacks, had made applica- tion to be removed from the station, and had also sought protection from the Police Magistrate. Since then we have been put in possession of other particulars which, although our statements may appear in- credible, are, nevertheless, strictly true. It appears that a man named Bernard McLachlan went down to Amity Point, about seven weeks since for the benefit of his health, and after remaining a short time at the Pilot Station, left there and went to the Missionary Station at Dun- wich, where he, was received kindly, and was treated with the greatest hospitality by Mr. Vicarrie. About three days after his arrival, the blacks took ...

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 1 May 1847

BRITISH AND F.OREIGN INTELLIGENCE. WE have received, via Melbourne, news from England to the 11th December, being a week later than the December »packet brought out. .Her Majesty and Prince Albert had returned to Osborne House,* Isle of Wight, from a visit to the Duke of Norfolk at Arundel Castle. Previous to their depaj^re from that place, each planted an oak, commemorative of the visit. It is an- nounced that there is again a probability of an increase iii the Royal Family. EMIGRATION. - The country people are still emigrating ; hundreds of people take their de- parture from this port by every steamer which leaves for Liverpool. But a few days ago the Richard Watson, passenger ship, left our quays with her full number of passengers, bound for New York. Such a thing was never heard of before in this part of the kingdom. Nothing could have induced those persons to venture across the Atlantic in the very depth of winter, but the conviction that if they remained in this country they w...

MELBOURNE RACES. (Abridged from the Melbourne Argus, and other Papers.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 1 May 1847

MELBOURNE RACES. C Abridged from the Melbourne Argus, and other Papers.J The sporting annals either of this or of the neighbouring colonies, do not chronicle an event so memorable or so exciting as that of the great Melbourne April meeting, which commenced on Tuesday last. The inherent love of horse racing which, in the eyes of foreigners, has become a distinguishing trait in the character of Britons at home, is manifested m no less a degree by them and their descendants here at the antipodes ; and it is an honour to Port Phillip, of which she may well be proud, that, although a province of but a few year¡>' colonization, her soil has been the first arena on which the best blood of New South Wales, and her sister colonies-Van Diemen's Land and South Australia, have met to contend for the superiority, and that the horses who car- ried off' the palm of victory are her own. The representatives of the Sydney turf were Emerald and Tally-ho, and those of Van Diemen's Land, Coronet, Hol...

TRANSPORTATION TO VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 1 May 1847

TRANSPORTATION TO VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. His Excellency Sir William Benison has ad- dressed the following circular to the Magistracy of Van Diemen's Land, with a view to obtain an expression of the views of the colonists on the subject of transportation to that colony : - CIRCULAR, . Private Secretary's Office, Government House, March, 1847. Sir,-I am directed by his Excellency to lay   before you a series of questions on the subject of transportation, and to request that you would carefully consider them, in connection with such of the gentlemen and others in your neighbour- hood who are competent to form opinions on the subject ; and that you would return to me the questions, with such answers as you may be able to give to them, as soon as possible. His Excellency has thought it desirable to take this mode of ascertaining the views of the in- habitants of the colony on this very important question, in order that he may be in the position to lay before the Secretary of Sta...

PORT CURTIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 8 May 1847

PORT CURTIS. THE last accounts received from Port Curtis state that the blacks are again friendly. An exploring party had penetrated fifteen miles into the bush ; and actually remained a whole night away from the camp. They describe the country they saw as highly fertile. A wooden store had been erected near South Shore Head. Colonel Barney has resolved to stay at Port Curtis until the Lord Auckland is repaired. His motives for this curious decision it would be diifi ciiïVto an ive at, if we were to confine ourselves to those ordinarily applied to mankind. To use the words of a correspondent, " if the progress of the settlement is at an end, so is not the pro- gress of salary," and, it is to be supposed, neither his office nor its emoluments will lapse until he returns to Sydney. Mr. Merewether and another young gentleman have applied to His Excellency Sir Charles Fitz Roy for tw elve months provisions and other as- sistance to enable them to form a settlement at the Port. They have...

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 8 May 1847

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. BY the Mount Stewart Elphinstone, news from England to the 18th December has reached the colony. The following are the most interesting items of intelligence : Ireland continues in a very agitated state famine stalks about in all its squalid misery, and large subscriptions have been raised in England and in the British colonies for the relief of the poor people. In some of the counties the Irish were in a perfect ferment, and arms were being introduced in large quantities-in about twenty days 1131 stand of arms were disposed of in Clonmel, the county town of Tipperary. The split between O'Connell and Young Ireland had weakened the power of O'Connell, whose in- fluence was on the wane ; the other party, how- ever, daily gain strength.   On the 19th November, Mr. Forsyth, the prin- cipal searcher of the Customs, accompanied by other officers, boarded the ship Glenelg, lying off Gravesend, and, after inspection, seized her for a contemplat...

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 8 May 1847

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. SIR,-I see by the last Courier that subscriptions are requested for the relief of the families that have suffered by the late melancholy wreck. Could you, through the columns of your paper, inform the public how many families have been left fatherless, and what peculiar instances of destitution call for relief? Great ignorance upon these points prevails throughout the district generally, by reason whereof many persons are deterred from forward- ing the contributions which they are both anxious and willing to make, provided they are put in possession of the circumstances that render this demand upon their benevolence necessary. I have the honor to be, Sir, Your most obedient servant, CHARLES ROLLESTON. Cambooya, 1st May, 1847. [If Mr. R. will refer to our Extraordinary, published on the 17th March, he will find we stated that seven families have been left fatherless by the late melancholy shipwreck.
