THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, JUNE 12, 1847. POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 12 June 1847

          THE Moreton Bay Courier/   SATURDAY, JUNE 12, 1847. POLICE. The Sydney Morning Herald of the 21st ultimo, publishes certain queries (amount- ing in number to forty-six) which are to be proposed to the Benches of Magistrates in the several districts of the colony, in order to collect their (probably) various opinions with reference to the present state of the Police of New South Wales, and as there can be no doubt that the answers given will materially influence the proceedings of the Committee of the Legislative Council appointed to report on the subject, we deem it our duty to offer a few observations upon such of the ques- tions as in our opinion affect the inhabi- tants of this district. Queries 19th to 29th refer to the watch- houses or lock-ups, their situation, se- curity, and healthfulness, and the facilities they afford for the classification of their inmates. In all these requisites the ...

TUE o r c t o u un» Courier. SATURDAY, JUNE 19, 1847. THE PROGRESS AND PROSPECTS OF MORETON BAY. Twelve months having now elapsed since the establishment of the Moreton Bay Courier, it may not, perhaps, be un pleasing to our readers if we take advan- tage of this, the first anniversary of our editorial existence, for the purpose of presenting a retrospective view of our labours, and the effect they may fairly be assumed to have had upon the progress of this district. Confining ourselves strictly to the spirit of our motto ;-carefully abstaining from all sectarian or theological* disquisitions, and always bearing in mind the pledges given at the outset of our career,--we have struggled on under difficulties which nothing could have enabled us to sur- mount save a sense of the duty which we owed to the kind friends whose generosity enabled us to establish this journal. These difficulties have been enhanced by the almost entire dependence on our own resources to which we have been redu...

COOLIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 19 June 1847

COOLIES. To the Editors of the Sydney Morning Herald. Gentlemen,-With reference to the report in this morning's Herald, where the Honourable the At- torney-General is said to have expressed his belief that the introduction of Indian labour had not succeeded, and asked for proof: I beg in reply to inform him, with the utmost courtesy, that it has been eminently successful, and would refer him to a pamphlet 1 had the honour to forward for his perusal some months ago. If I could be made acquainted with the nature of the proofs required by him beyond what I have already placed before the public, so far from shrinking from the test, 1 should greatly rejoice to lay before his b»nevoleut mind every item of such proof. I repeat that the experiment of Indian labour has been pre-emi- nently successful, and that there are no class,of people, if properly selected, who can surpass them, and this be it remembered, under every disadvan-' tage and discouragement-by the attempt to tam« per with them...

COLONIAL ABSTRACT. ,The Port Phillip papers state that the Penton ville exiles per Thomas Ailuihnot will be the last shipment to be made of these men -In the course of a wages (case, heard recently before the Sydney Bench, the magistrates decided that the evidence of theparlies in the cause-master and. man-is admissible by law, but not so the evidence of the wife of either party.

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. ("From our Correspondent. J A special Licensing Meeting was held on the 15th instant, at which Mr. Samuel Owens, of the Old Man's Water Hole, applied for, and obtained a publican's general license. John Drew, a prisoner of the Crown attached to the Ploughed Station, was brought before,the Bench charged by Mr. Thomson, the Govern- ment overseer, with disobedience of orders, by refusing to shepherd a flock of sheep. The case being fully proved, the prisoner was sentenced to fourteen days' imprisonment in the cells at Brisbane. , With reference to the remarks in your last pub- lication relative to the inquiry now being instituted as to the state of the watch-houses or lock-ups, it may be as well to mention that the miserable hovel designated a lock-up in this town is merely ß feet by 7, and is built of slabs, through the interstice» of which saws or other implements can readily bo introduced for the purpose of escape.

THE EDITOR-KILLERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 26 June 1847

THE EDITOR-KILLERS. " Shut up the shop," said Mr. Hoby, " balance the books-discharge the workmen, and call in all accounts-I am ruined for ever ! Ensign Smith has withdrawn his custom."-Old Story. The obliging old donkey-driver in the well-known fable did not experience greater difficulty in pleas- ing the public than does the editor of a newspaper. Besides differences of opinion, he has to avoid another danger, arising from the sensitive feelings of such of his readers as may unfortunately be conscious of something odd or ridiculous in them- selves. However careful he may be to shun such topics as he conceives might be construed to per- sonalities, he is sure to be unsuccessful. The most trivial and common-place observation grates upon the morbid feelings of those who live in perpetual fear of being laughed at, and instantly, m the words of Gay " Each erics ' that was levelled at me.' " If in the exercise of his duty the editor ventures modestly to hint that in his opinion a commi...

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 26 June 1847

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. SiK,-At length the subject of Immigration has been fairly brought before the Council, and a Committee of enquiry has been appointed, to col- lect information, and to report upon the best mode of carrying out this all-important measure.^ While, then, our legislators are so employed, it is the part of those most interested to meet, and to petition, to state their wants, and to recommend" the course most likely to supply them. The original motion of Mr. Cowper had for its object, solely, <he introduction of labourers from Europe, while those opposed to the introduction of any other class, confined themselves to invec- tives against the introduction of cannibals : not one single member in the house mooted the ques- tion, whether the European labourer was the best adapted to the sort of labour, and to the duty he was called upon to perform, when he should arrive in the colony ? The class of immigrants more immediately wanted are shephe...

THE ISLES OF THE PACIFIC. (From the Colonial Gazette.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 26 June 1847

THE ISLES OF THE PACIFIC. fFrom the Colonial Gazette. J A well-digested pamphlet has been placed in our hands, printed only for private circulation, en- titled a " Description of the New Hebrides Group of islands, with a brief Notice of the Objects, &c , of the New Hebrides Company." To a colonial minded man a glance at the map of that portion of the South Pacific Ocean has hitherto been a grievous eyesore. The thought that numerous and spacious islands, the most inviting in the world for their fertile loveliness, were left to the abuse of wild tribes, savage even to cannibalism, was one full of affliction to those who remembered what benefits to commerce and civilization had resulted from the presence of English colonists in far less promising locales. We are pleased to learn, then, that a company is now in process of formation under ¡the name of the New Hebrides Company, for the purpose of establishing a settle- ment exclusively for trade on one of the islands of the group...

COLONIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 26 June 1847

COLONIAL. Small Debts Act.-In the course of the discussion on the Masters and Servants Act, yes- terday, Mr. Cowper incidentally stated that he had been informed that the Goulburn bench of magistrates had refused to act under the Small Debts Act, and had not met to make any rules to carry it into eßbct. Mr. Windeyer hoped that the Attorney-General would take notice that it stated that there was a bench of magistrates in the colony which refused to put the law into ope- ration , and would use his authority to compel them to do their duty. Mr. Murray would like to know how the magistrates could be compelled to put the law into force if they were of opinion it would not work beneficially ; suppose they refused to sit on the bench at all, how could they be compelled to do so ? Mr. Cowper observed that some people were of opinion that magistrates could not be compelled to perform civil duties at all. Mr. Lord said that the Act was both simple and beneficial ; at Bathurst it worked remark...

THE ÍH o v c t o n 33 a » Coarte v. SATURDAY, JUNE 28, 1847. WASTE LANDS. It has never been our task to peruse any official document emanating from the present Secretary of State for the Colonies with more unmitigated disgust than his re- cently published despatch respecting the future management of Crown Lands. Such numerous absurdities and contra- diction's were never before placed in juxta- position, and ^e look in vain for any argument- ' based upon actual facts, ¿4 which there is a .grain of common sense. Notwithstanding.that the most powerful pens in England have been employed in exposing the absurd theory of Mr. Gibbon Wakefield-nothwithstanding the known failure of the attempt to keep up the pre- sent price of land-Lord Grey still per- sists, with a pertinacity which nothing can overcome, to enforce that abominable theory, and carry it out in practice. Facts, undeniable facts, should have constrained his Lordship to review his opinions and adopt a different system ; but the ...
