THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, MAY 8, 1817. THE NORTHERN EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 8 May 1847

THE MORETON BAY COURIER.                 SATURDAY, MAY 8, 1847.   THE NORTHERN EXPEDITION. PRIVATE letters received on Saturday last, announce that Mr. Burnett the Surveyor was on his return from the Boyne country. He had traced the river down to latitude 24.53, and was compelled to turn back in consequence of meeting with impervious scrubs through which neither man nor beast could travel. A gentleman who accompanied the expedition states " that they got to salt water swamps and creeks with a rise and fall in the tide of about four feet ; and from the course the river was pursuing, Mr. Burnett supposed it emptied itself somewhere in the vicinity of Hervey's Bay." There can be no doubt, therefore, that the expedition party had reached a spot not far distant from the coast ; and that the embouchere of the Boyne is near the latitude 24-46, and longitude 152*25 E., a loca...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 8 May 1847

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. CAPTAIN STURT.-We cannot help rejoicing at any indication of deserved reward or promotion about to be conferred upon Captain Sturt, but we shall deeply regret to lose him as a South Aus- tralian colonist. The hon. and gallant Captain having been graciously required to visit England, has obtained the requisite leave of absence from His Excellency the Lieutenant-Governor, and will in all probability take an early departure. Go when he may, Captain Sturt will carry with him the affectionate homage which South Australians especially owe him, and his return, which we fully expect at some future day, will be a season of. gladness for us all.- S. A. Register, April 3. THE MORETON BAY COURIER is published every Saturday morning.

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. . IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent, j On the 28th ultimo, a person named Peter Moran was brought before the Magistrates at the instance of Mr.- A. Morrison, storekeeper, charged with uttering a forged cheque for £10, purporting to have been drawn by Messrs. Ferriter and Uhr. The cheque was;originally a genuine document for £l,vbut it had,been subsequently altered to £10. The case was remanded.for fourteen days, to allow time for the cheque to be return«! from Sydney, where it was sent for payment. In the meantime the prisoner was ordered to be for- warded to Brisbane for safe custody, the Ipswich lock-up being insecure. He was defended by Mr. Adams. A petition to the Queen for the renewal of transportation is now being signed by most of the inhabitants of the township and neighbourhood. The country is looking well, and there is abundance of feed for stock. The Boiling Down Establishment at the Long Pocket is in full play, and a good many head have already been di...

IMMIGRANTS FROM THE SOUTH SEA ISLANDS. To the Editors of the Sydney Morning Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 15 May 1847

IMMIGRANTS FROM THE SOUTH SEA ISLANDS. To tlie Editors of the Sydney Morning Herald. Gentlemen,-As you have applied to me for   some information respecting the voyage of the Velocity to obtain immigrants for this colony from the South Sea Islands, I think I cannot meet your request more satisfactorily than by enclosing you a letter from Captain Kirsopp on the subject. -I remain, gentlemen, your obedient servant, B. BOYD.   April 21st, 1847. Velocity, Boyd, April 14, 1847. My dear Sir,-As the Lady Mary Fitz Roy is ready for sea, and it is possible that I may be de- tained for a day or two at this place, I write in order to give you the earliest information of the success of my endeavours to procure labourers from the islands of the Pacific. Having been a squatter in the colony for five years myself, and suffered from the enormous rate of wages all were compelled to pay during the years 40, 41, and 42, it is with great pleasure I am enabled to assure you that...

LATEST NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 15 May 1847

LATEST NEWS. THE Effort schooner sailed from Sydney on the 1st May, but has not brought any mail. We are indebted to the kindness of Mr. R. J. Smith, of Kangaroo Point, for Sydney papers to that date, which, however, are unusually barren of intelli- gence. There had been no alteration in the price of flour since the last advices by the Tamar, and the prices of other commodi- ties remained the same. The long pending match between Petrel and Paganini, for £100 aside, which was to be run at Port Phillip on the 29th ült., is declared off. The inhabitants of Twofold Bay had petitioned the Superintendent to allow them a share of the " Exiles" expected to arrive in the Thomas Arbuthnot at Mel- bourne, to which His Honor replied that he feared there would be impediments in the way of his meeting their wishes. In Melbourne, a dealer in oysters an- nounced the receipt of a supply from Gee- long, a size larger than small frying-pans, and warranted to average not more than four to the bushel. H...

THE CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. (From the Sydney Morning Herald, May 1.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 15 May 1847

THE CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. (From the Sydney Morning Herald, May 1.) We have Cape papers to the beginning of February, and regret to state that the information from that colony has again assumed a disastrous aspect. The incursions and depredations of the Kaffirs had been renewed. Several skir- mishes had taken place, and although the English had the advantage, the Kaffirs exhibited great desperation and ferocity. His Excellency the Governor had re- turned from the seat of the war, and his departure had been the signal for an im- mediate resumption of hostilities. Much blame is attached to the conduct of the Governor, and Colonel Somerset had ap- plied for more troops before he thought he should defeat and humble the enemy. The following narrative of the slaughter of three British officers will be read with melancholy interest. The melancholy intelligence reached town from the camp near the Kei, on Saturday evening, of the death of three officers, who were surrounded by the enemy on the o...

THE tí4 íH.o r c to it 33 a j> Co u r fjr.v. ' SATURDAY, MAY 15, 1847. IMMIGRATION FROM THE SOUTH,SEA ! ISLANDS; , r WHETHER it Le that the modern colonists are more enterprising than their prede- cessors, or that a new impetus has been given to their invention and love of gain by the recent changes in the commercial policy of the Home Government, we shall not pretend to say ; but certainly the present age is distinguished beyond all others for its bold efforts to multiply and extend the means of communication with countries which had it not been for pri- vate enterprise would, perhaps, have re- mained unknown to this day. Capital and science have devised and executed new channels of intercourse. No'obstacle appears too formidable to be surmounted, no undertaking too extensive or costly that wealth and labour cannot accomplish. An apt illustration of the truth of these observations is furnished by the experi- ment of Mr. B. Boyd in sending to the South Sea Islands fqr a supply of...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH.   (From our Correspondent.)     ON Wednesday, the 12th inst., Stephen McCarthy was brought before the Magistrates, charged with purloining spirits on board the Experiment steamer. As no prosecutor appeared, he was ad- monished, and the case was dismissed. He was subsequently brought up charged with having assaulted a constable in the execution of his duty, to which he pleaded guilty, and was fined £1, or in default, to fourteen days' imprisonment. The fine was paid by his employer. On the same day, Peter Moran, who had been remanded on a charge of uttering a false cheque, purporting to have been drawn by Messrs. Ferriter and Uhr, was again brought before the Bench.   The case was clearly proved against the prisoner, and he was committed to take his trial. The revision of the Electoral Lists has been gone through. No objections were entered to those already on the list, and of the two new ap- plications,...

There was a shriek ; yet two Stood calm amid that crew ; A husband and a wife They had been linked in life   By ties of holier kind Than those the many bind ; And now in death's dark hour, They felt Religion's power : No more of storms for them, Of Earth's unquiet weather - The waves' roar was their requiem, They've gone to Heav'n together!   Let's hope all passed away As peacefully as they, For not their fate alone Surviving hearts bemoan, And for those mourners we Have deepest sympa...
