NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 3 July 1847

NEW ZEALAND. Our papers from Wellington are to the 22nd May, and we regret to say that the information they contain is most unfa- vourable. A large portion of the natives in the southern districts appear to be in arms against the British, and the unfortunate settlers of Manawatu and Wanganui have been compelled to desert their homes and proceed to the town of Wellington. Previous arrivals had given us informa- tion of the murder of the family of a settler named Gilfillan, and as the district in which the murder was committed waa under martial law, the officer in command of the troops in the district (Captain Laye, 58th Regt.,) caused the murderers to be apprehended, and drying them by a court martial, ordered four of them for immedi- ate execution. It will be seen that the natives pretend that Gilfiillan's family was murdered be- cause a young officer had accidentally wounded a native ; but we think no one can read the accounts of the transactions without feeling convinced that the ...

AMERICA New York, Jan. 30. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 3 July 1847

AMERICA New York, Jan. 30. The present session of Congress is more than half terminated. Thus far very little has been done-nothing that clearly in- dicates the plan of the campaign as in- tended to be conducted by the Admini- stration. From a speech made by Mr. Benton in the Senateof the United States on the 25th of January, 1847, it is de- monstrated that he had set at nought all that had been suggested by the Command- ing Generals in Mexico. For the last ten for twelve days the Cabinet at Wellington has been kept in an uproar on the question whether there shall or shall not be created the office of Lieutenant-General, and that office be filled by the Hon. Senator Benton, to the manifest injury of Generals Scott and Taylor. But it is believed that this pro ject^was intended for a political more than a military movement. The knowing ones at Washington and elsewhere conclude very naturally that the appointment of Mr. Benton to this station would give him such commanding influence, t...

That, with reference to the proposed Orders in , Council, laid on the table of this House on the 1st Juno, 1847, this House re-aflfirms the reso- lution agreed toon the 25th of September, 1846 : that is to say, " That while the minimum upset price of £ I per acre is maintained, the Squatting question can never be settled on a just and sa- tisfactory basis. 2. That an Address be presented to His Excel- lency the Governor, requesting him to transmit i this resolution to the Secretary of State for the Colonies, arid to use his influence with the Home Government to prevent the proposed Orders re- ceiving the sanction of Her Majesty ; and to move Her Majesty to propose to Parliament the repeal of the Acts 5 and 6 Victoria, c. 36, and 9 and IO Victoria, c. 104.

Late English News. (From the Sydney Morning Herald, June 19.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 3 July 1847

Late English Hews. {From tJte Sydney Morning Herald, June 19.^ The arrival of the Glcntanner and Oliver Cromwell has put us in possession of files of English papers to the 20th of .February, from Avhich we make copious extracts. The distress in Ireland remained un- abated, notwithstanding the vigorous efforts making, by the Government to send food to the more distressed districts. The amount expended in this way in the month of January exceeded £50,000 a day. The Government plans for permanent relief had been propounded by Lord John Russell ; hut the general impression apreared to be that the measures would in effect be but temporary, and that until the land tenure was altered there wpuld still be occassional periods when the people of Ireland must depend upon England for subsistence. As one instance of the condition'of the Irish landholders, we may mention that in some legal pro- ceedings of February, it was proved that although the Marquis Conynghame was owner of estates m Ireland...

By the arrival of the Elizabeth Jane from Sydney we have been put in posses- sion of news from England, via Singapore, to ¡the 24th Februaiy, four days later than the intelligence received direct by the frlentanner and Oliver Cromwell. In the Jiouse of Commons the Chan- cellor of the Exchequer had brought for- ward his budget.

There had been an increase in the revenue on all articles of impoit on which duties or customs' duties were pay if* able, except on those on which the duties had been reduced. Notwithstanding there, had been an increase in the price oftcotton, a demand for bullion, and consequently a pressure"ïn the money market, the iurplus revenue had swollen to £2,846,000. Jhen in. Ireland, the« excise duties had increased. The extraordinary expenditure for Iteland had already amo...
