LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 29 May 1847

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent.)   JAMES POWERS was brought up on warrant to answer two separate charges of cattle stealing ; the first in having, while employed by Mr. Sibley driving cattle down the country, disposed of a heifer to Mr. Meehan, at the Springs, by whom it was slaughtered, and of which the prisoner rendered no account on his arrival at Ipswich about a month back. It was admitted by Mr. Sibley that he had on a previous occasion given permission to the prisoner to dispose of a bullock to any person who might be in want of it ; it was therefore contended by Mr. Ocock, the prisoner's attorney, that it was merely a breach of trusti especially as Powers unhesitatingly admitted, the fact when at first accused. The case was conse- quently dismissed. The second charge was for stealing a bulloak the property of Capt. D'Acre, but now in the charge of Mr. John Stevens. Mr. Sibley, in his examination, proved that a brown bullock and a White heife...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. COMMERCIAL RETROSPECT. (From the London Mercantile Journal, Jan. 11.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 5 June 1847

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. COMMERCIAL RETROSPECT. (From the London Mercantile Journal, Jan. 11.) Although prices are still on the advance for Corn, Flour, Provisions, and Cotton-Wool, still there has been much activity in the mercantile markets during the past week. The home trade have operated extensively in nearly every article, and a good business has been transacted in pro- duce for investment. Indeed the operations have been to a larger extent than for some years during the same space of time. * Prices advanced for Sugar, Coffee, Rice, and Spirits, whilst for all other articles quotations ruled very íirm, although the markets were abundantly supplied, and large sales were announced. This healthy state of affairs can only be attributed to the easy state of the money market, and the large quantity of goods there are being consumed all over the country. The trade decidedly hold small stocks, and the quantity of goods in bond is less than it was a twelvemonth back, whereas prices are gene- ...

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, JUNE 5, 1847. MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 5 June 1847

THE MORETON BAY COURIER               SATURDAY, JUNE 5, 1847. MEETING. In this rising and important district we possess every element of wealth but one labour. For want of this one element all the resources of the country remain com - paratively undeveloped-the creation of capital is slow and interrupted-every employer is exposed to numerous difficul- ties and inconveniences which are perpe- tually recurnng, and as a natural conse- quence, the relations of master and servant are unsettled. To counteract the evil tendency of this state of things, we took occasion in our issue of the 15th ultimo, to urge that a meeting of the employers of labour should be convened to consider the necessity for taking immediate steps to obtain a supply of labour adequate to their wants. We are glad to find the vast importance of the subject has at length aroused the attention of the stock- holders, and that our s...

THE SOUTH SEA ISLANDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 12 June 1847

THE SOUTH SEA ISLANDS. Having been for some months without an ar- rival from the eastern isles of the Pacific, news from that quarter was anxiously looked for. The Columbine, which arrived yesteiday, brings intelligence from Tahiti to the middle of Februaiy, and from the Samoas to the end of April. In Tahiti the French, having obtained a guide to the secret paths of the natives, who were hold- ing out against them, an unconditional surrender of the rebels, as they were called, was the neces- sary consequence, so that the whole of the island is now under the French flag. The manner in which this surprise was effected is thus described in the Sarnoaa Reporter : " A native of Rapa, one of the Austral Islands, engaged with the French Governor to betray into the hands of the French the camp of Hautauâ, for the reward of two hundred dollars. The camp in question is a short distance inland of Papeite, very difficult of access, but if once gained serves as a key to the valleys in which the ...

IMPORTANT NEWS FROM NEW ZEALAND. RANGIHÆTÆ. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 12 June 1847

IMPORTANT NEWS from NEW ZEALAND. Rt\N(URM'£M. Information waa received in Wellington late on Monday evening that Rangihasttc, who for the last few months has remained inactive, and been commencing fresh outrages at Katipi. It appears he crossed over early on Sunday morning from the main land in a large canoe, with a party of thirty followers, all armed, to Mr. Brown's station at Katipi, and proceeded to search for powder. He obtained about half a keg of coarse powder, and a small quantity of finer powder in canisters, which was used by Mr. Brown and his son for shooting, &c. His followers then rushed the place, and plundered Mr. Brown of all he possessed, taking away with them a considerable portion of the pro- perty, and destroying all they were unable to re- move. The property taken or destroyed by Rangihaetse and his followers is estimated at up- wards of four hundred pounds, as Mr. Brown (who keeps a store for the supply of the whalers and others) had recently laid in a ...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 12 June 1847

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. Pardon of William Henry Barber.—This remarkable man, who acted as attorney for Joshua Fletcher, in the celebrated "Emma Slack" will forgery case, is at present in Hobart Town. He had just come down from Norfolk Island in the Pestonjee Bomanjee, to Impression Bay. A day or two after his arrival, her Majesty's special warrant for a conditional free pardon reached him direct from England. He is therefore free to go to any part of the world except to the United Kingdom. But we think this is the precursive step to an unconditional pardon, which will restore him to his friends and home, and happiness. The matter cannot of course rest here. The Govern- ment have either done too much or too little. In Mr. Barber's case there can be no medium between the most honourable innocence and the most per- fect guilty knowledge of the transaction, in the latter view of the ease he deserves no sympathy ; he merits no indulgence ; and a pardon under such circumstances would be a prem...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 12 June 1847

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. , IPSWICH. CFrom our Correspondent. J A few days since, William Auld, a Canadian, better known as the Yankee, and holding a ticket of-leave, was brought before the Bench charged with stealing a saddle and bridle the property of Duncan Fergusson, overseer to Mr. Sandeman, but no prosecutor appearing, the case was dis- missed, and the man was bound over to appear when called upon. This person was lately m the employ of Mr. Moore of the Caledonian Hotel, and it appears that subsequent to leaving his service, he wrenched the padlock oil' the stable door, and decamped with the property ; but being immediately pursued by a mounted constable and Fergusson, he was overtaken at Messrs. Ferriter and Uhr's station. The property, however, was non est, and it being late when lie was captured, arrangements were made between the owner and the constable to institute a strict search on the following morning. When the tim« arrived,, it was ascertained that Fergusson, like his g...

PUNCH'S ADVICE TO PARLIAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 12 June 1847

PUNCH'S ADVICE TO PARLIAMENT. Mr. Punch respectfully begs to remind members of the House of Commons that Parliament will assemble on Tuesday, the 19th instant, for the despatch of business. He ventures to repeat-for the despatch of business ; because it appears to be generally forgotten that this is the object of the meeting of Parliament. In order to the due despatch of business, Mr. Punch may perhaps be allowed to tender to the House of Commons a little advice. With very much more than the usual work this session, there must be very much less than the usual talk. Honourable members who have nothing to say are strongly recommended to say it. It is desirable that all speeches should be as closely compressed as possible. Every sentence should be an aphorism ; if not new, at least true ; and in any case should have some bearing on the question before the house. References to the Eton Latin Grammar and the Elegant Extracts should be dispensed with ; and the Speaker of the house should ...
