ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 15 May 1847

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. IMMENSITY OF CREATION.-Regarding the in- struments by which the astronomical discoveries alluded to have been achieved, their adaptation to their purpose, and particularly their virtue of penetrating into remote space maybe now judged. Lord Rosse's telescope or speculum is six feet in diameter. Now Herschell calculated that his seven feet telescope (seven feet focal distance), could penetrate into space 20½ times further than the naked eye : his ten feet 28½ further ; his twenty feet 75 ; his twenty-five feet 96 ; and his great forty feet, or four feet diameter, 192 times further. Consequently if the naked eye discerns a star five hundred millions of miles distant, Herschell's great telescope would show stars invisible to the naked eye, no less than ninety-six thousand million of miles further into space. Lord Rosse's telescope of six feet, it is calculated, will show stars of five hundred times further, or six thousand times more remote than a star of the first ma...

WOMAN.'S LOT. WliaUs her lot P Unshrinkingly to stand ' Beside the sufferer's weary couch of pain ; To watch and weep, to press with gentle hand, The throbbing temples,-yet to press in vain ; To gaze and tremble, yet in woe to gaze. Till quench'd' for aye hope's ever changeful rays. What is her lot ?v To tend the couch of death, To soothe the spirit in its parting hour ; To mark the panting, quivering, fluttering breath ; To breathe of brighter hope, of holier power ; A breaking heart to bear, yet still to pray, And aid the parting one to haste away. What is her lot! To smile in weary hours. To brighten hearth and home with guileless mirth, To shed a fragrance, as of dewy flowers, O'er the one sanctuary of boundless earth ; To counsel, raise, invigorate, and bless, And win the troubled, tempest-toss'd, to peace. What is her lot ? To clasp, with love untold, A mother's treasure to a mother's breast ; To mark each bud of infant thought unfold, To guide sweet childhood to a brighter re...

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 May 1847

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. By the arrival of the Prince of Wales from Lon- don, after an excellent passage of 100 days, English news to the 28th January has been re- ceived in Sydney. Parliament was opened by the Queen in person on, the 19th January. Both in going to and returning from the House of Lords^ her Majesty was saluted with the most enthusiastic greetings from the congregated thousands on the whole line of the procession from Buckingham Palace to the Old Palace Yard. Her Majesty having arrived at the House, and having taken her seat on the throne, delivered thp SPEECH. My Lords and Gentlemen-It is with tlie deepest concern that, upon your again assembling, I have to call your attention to the dearth of provisions H Inch prevails in Ireland and in parts of Scotland. In Ireland, especially, the loss of the usual food of the people has been the cause of severe suffer- ings, ot disease, and of greatly increased mortality among the poorer classes. Outrages have become mo...

THE JOURNALISM OF THE SCEPTRE. (From the Charivari.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 May 1847

THE JOURNALISM OF THE SCEPTRE. (From the Charivari. J Here is a species of news, well calculated to swell the pride of every journalist and newspaper editor in the world ; we have.now contemporaries among potentates-we can now hail comrades amongst the august ones> of the earth. Our humble editorial arm-chair rubs against thrones ; and we can actually call kings " our cousins !"" - The monarch of Bavaria has just established himself as the founder and chief editor of a news- paper. I We are not told, however, if it is "by the grace of God," or by the unanimous prayer, of the readers of Bavaria. This latter hypothesis is very unlikely. ' ' His "Bavarian Majesty might, like all Govern- ments, easily procure journalists, called ?. official," who would supply him with enthusiasm at If. 25c. per line; papers like the Journal des Debáis are easily found, wherever there are budgets in existence. His Majesty, however, has taken if into his head that one is never so well plastered as by o...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. LAUNCH OF THE "SELINA." [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 May 1847

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. LAUNCH OF THE "SELINA." ON Saturday morning last, a great many of the inhabitants assembled at the ship-building yard on the north bank of the river to witness the launch of Captain Deloitte's new schooner of 62 tons burthen. The weather-turned out remarka- bly fine, and the scene was enlivened by the presence of nearly all the ladies -resident in the township.' What with their gay dresses, and the bright jackets of the military, the place assumed a very lively appearance. It was quite gratifying to find that so much interest was taken in the proceedings. About the time of high water, the arrangements were completed, and the vessel was ready for launching. Just before the. launch took place, several per- sons prognosticated a failure, in consequence of the rather unusual circumstance of launching a vessel with the masts and standing rigging up ; but the result proved that Mr. Cameron, the builder, knew very well what he was about. At the given signal, the support...

SEIZURE OF THREE WAR FRIGATES OF GENERAL FLORES' EXPEDITION BY GOVERNMENT.—ARRIVAL OF THE CAPTURED VESSELS YESTERDAY AT BLACKWALL. (From the Weekly Despatch, Nov. 29.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 May 1847

SEIZURE OF THREE WAR FRIGATES OF GENERAL FLORES' EXPEDITION BY GOVERNMENT.-ARRIVAL OF THE CAPTURED VESSELS YESTERDAY AT BLACKWALL.. (From the Weekly Despatch, Nov. 29.) Crowds were attracted to Blackwall by the ar- rival of the " flag ship" of General Flores (having   on board his staff of commissioned officers for his intended invasion of the Equador), formerly the Glenelg Indiaman, which, with two war steamers, have been seized by Mr. Forsayth, the principal officer of the Customs, by order of the Lords of the Treasury, under the Equipment and Enlist- ment Act, being fitted for the purpose of hostili- ties against a foreign power. Many hundreds of unfortunate creatures having been deluded into this somewhat remarkable ex- pedition, under a belief that it was to emigrate to a new English colony, a brief statement of the circumstances connected with its formation and discovery, together with the names of concoctors, may perhaps be of interest. In the middle of October l...

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, MAY 22, 1847. THE NORTHERN EXPEDITION. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 May 1847

          THE Moreton Bay Courier.             SATURDAY, MAY 22, 1847. THE NORTHERN EXPEDITION. SINCE our last article on this subject ap- peared, we have been favoured with a few additional particulars respecting the coun- try on the Boyne River and its tributaries, which we hasten to lay before our readers. The expedition party reached Mr. Hawkins' station, Boojinbah, on the 20th March, and started from that place on the 22nd with three mounted men and pack horses, leaving the dray on the station. They followed down the creek on which it is situated to its confluence with the Baramba, and they then traced that stream till they met with the Boyne in latitude about 25. 35'. It was asceitained that the Baramba joins the Boyne below the Dawson. Below the junction of the Baramba with the Boyne, the latter turns very much to the eastward, as afte...

LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 29 May 1847

[. '? LATEST ENGLISH NEWS. BY the Niagara, Liverpool papers to the 1st February had been received in Sydney. Lord John Russell had stated that the large sum of £7,000,000 would be required for the re- lief of the Irish people. This announcement had the elfcet of depreciating the funds from £ to 1 per cent. An immense number of Irish paupers were daily arriving in Liverpool, and, spreading themselves over the country, had occasioned great complaints in consequence of the poor rates having increased to such a degree that it was feared it would soon be found impossible to collect them. Provisions were gradually becoming dearer ; and it was the general opinion that before tlvi winter season luid passad over there would be nearly as much distress in England as in Ireland. The Honorable Henry Escourt Addington, son of Lord Sidmouth, had committed suicide, at his father's residence, Albury, near Guildford. The deceased was twenty-four years of age, and had been suffering for some time from...

THE NEW .COLONY OF THE LABUAN. (From the Straits Times, February 12. J To the kindness of a friend ,we are indebted for a" few,items respecting the,island of Labuan; although somewhat scanty, they are nevertheless acceptable, especially as peculiar care appears to be exercised in keeping us as much as possible in the dark respecting an island which it is thought will prove the El Dorado of, the Malayan Archi- pelago. 11.M.S. Jm and Wolf reached Labuan Decem- ber 18th. Soon after arrival in Victoria Bay, tents were erected on shore and parties sent from H.MS. Iris and Wolfi'ov the purpose of clearing away the jungle at Pasley Point and erecting a temporary jetty, formed of trunks of trees, which was constructed to run out about 100 yards. The flagstaff'was erected at Point Pasley, (named after Sir Thomas Pasley, Bart., R.N.), the top of which is about 100 feet above the sea level ; the base of the flagstaff'being about ten feet above high water mark, and situated about 200 yards from...

Nothing could cbe finer than the day, and the distance from town is just sufficient for-a pleasant trip, either by land or water. *At an early hour- equestrians" and pedestrians were;» wending their way to the scene, while the Experiment steamer proceeded down the river, and landed her passengers on the course. Arrived on the course we found four well furnished booths, which afforded ample opportunity to all those who got cold without to get wann within, with ample supplies of edibles and potables, both of which, especially the latter, were in constant demand.
