EMIGRANT'S SONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 25 July 1846

EMIGRANT'S SONG. Once more let it sparkle and gladden the heart ! Adieu, loves and friendships ! and now we must part ;   Farewell, then, ye mountains, ye scenes of my home;         A power resistless impels me to roam.   The sun in the heavenly fields knows no stay ; O'er land and o'er ocean he rides far away ; The waves linger not as they roll on the sand, And the storms in their fury sweep over the land. The bird on the light fleecy cloud sails along, And sings in the distance his dear native song ; Through woodland and pasture the youth must go forth, And roam, like his mother, the wandering earth. The birds he once knew in the fields of his home Come flying to greet him o'er ocean's white loam ; And the flowers of his childhood salute him once more, In the breezes that breathe from his far native shore. The songsters of home still around him to charm, The flowers love planted still breathing their bal...

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 25 July 1846

'To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. SIR,-I perceive in your last number an article headed "Sly Grog Selling," in which Mr. Con-     stable Higgins figures very considerably. I beg to inform you, that under that worthy official's very nose, two sly grog shops are now taking every farthing that is spent in this town ; in fact, so notorious is the circumstance, that every man, woman, and child, in the town, knows it ; but as the Bridge (little Ipswich, as mine host of the St. Patrick-facetiously calls it) is under the parti- cular patronage of Mr. Higgins, no such irregu- larities are carried on there. It requires an active constable to put a stop to this crying evil, and if Mr. Higgins does not attend to his duties, I think the Magistrates ought, in justice to the publicans and public, appoint a fit and proper person to the situation.     As I have always considered that the public press is one of the means of putting down the...

MR. CAUDLE'S BREAKFAST TALK. Showing how Caudle, having lost money at cards, determines to abridge the house expenses. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 25 July 1846

MR. CAUDLE'S BREAKFAST TALK. Showing how Caudle, having lost money at cards, determines to-abridge the house ex- penses. " I don't know how it is, my dear, but when I remember that there's only you and myself-just   two of us, and I eat and drink next to nothing and when I see what other people do with half our money, I do think you might be a little more careful. I'm sure I spend no money on myself none. Nobody can be more watchful of every sixpence ; but of course, a man can save but little when he knows-or, that is, when he fears he knows-that everything's going to waste at home. Besides, it's a woman's place-particularly a woman's place-to save. Women were designed for it. Economy is one of the noblest virtues bound up with matrimony. There can be very little real love, Mrs. Caudle, where economy's ne- glected. A woman can't truly care for a man's heart, unless she has an equal regard for his pocket ; the things go together, and always did from the first. " No, Mrs....

THE BENEVOLENT SOCIETY.   THE Annual General Meeting of the members of this Society was held at the Court House, North Brisbane, on Tuesday last, for the purpose of electing the annual committee, and auditing the accounts. The. members present were:- Captain Wickham, R.N. Dr. Ballow, Dr. Cannan, T. Adams, Esq., Captain Coley, Mr. John Richard- son, Mr. W. Kent, Mr. R. F. G. Phelan, and Mr. Gill. Captain WICKHAM, President, said, the Society had been of much benefit to the district. Their object was to relieve the poor, the distressed, and, the aged ; and although the income of the Society at present, was small, eighteen individuals had, been relieved, which was quite sufficient to prove, its utility. It was true, and he very much re- gretted the fact, that the contributions from the various stations in the two districts had been con- fined to three or four charitable individuals, and he would mention the names of Bracker, Leslie, and Hodgson, who had taken great interes...

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. THE following closes our summary of English news by the Agincourt:— [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 25 July 1846

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. THE following closes our summary of English news by the Agincourt :-- Lord Cathcart is to be the new Governor-General of Canada-of course, provisionally, as Sir John Colborne was. A military commander, unknown to politics, cannot be a fit Governor for Canada, whatever his personal qualities and abilities may be. Such a mistake as to entrust him with the post permanently, would be too glaring even for the greenest novice or the oldest routine-monger in the Colonial office.-Spectator. Charles Dickens's Christmas tale, " the Cricket on the Hearth," has been dramatised at no less than nine of the London Theatres, while a tenth amuses the public with a burlesque upon it. It is reported that the frigate America, 50, Captain the Hon. John Gordon, has been sent with a broad pendant to command on the Oregon coast ; and that the Grampus, 50, Captain Martin, will join her forthwith. The amount of money won by race-horses in Great Britain during the years 1842 ...

THE MORETON BAY DISTRICT ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 25 July 1846

THE MORETON BAY DISTRICT ASSOCIA- TION. THIS society originated in the Pastoral Association   of Moreton Bay, formed in May, 1844, for the   purpose of co-operating with the Central Asso- ciation in Sydney in protecting the squatting in- terest against the effects of the Squatting Regu- lations of the 2nd April of that year. The mem-   bers joined in the petitions to the Houses of Lords   and Commons to obtain relief from the conse- quences of those measures. Subscribers to the amount of £1 per annum became members, and a committee was appointed to conduct the business of the Association.   On the 25th April, 1845, it was found desirable to remodel the Association, as the purpose for   which it was originally framed had been effected ; and at a general meeting of the members on that date, it was unanimously resolved that the funds then on hand should be applied to the survey of   Moreton Bay, ...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 25 July 1846

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. THE " OLD GAME."-On Thursday night some evil-disposed persons removed the boat belonging   to the Customs Department, and were in the act of taking it across the river, when they were ob- served by the sentry on duty at the Commissariat Stores, who manfully advanced to capture the de- linquents, but, unfortunately, they escaped. The parties at present are unknown, but strong sus- picion is attached to certain well-known characters residing at South Brisbane, who, be it understood, had a large quantity of " grog on board" that evening. We caution parties that this, in future, will be rather a dangerous sort of amusement, as the sentry has received orders to fire on any person meddling with the Customs' boat after sunset. BLACK CONTESTS.- Yesterday afternoon, one of the most desperate fights, amongst the abori- gines, that has occurred in the neighbourhood, took place at Kangaroo Point, and on the opposite side of the river, below Mr. Petre's house.

THE Moreton Ba[?] Courier. SATURDAY, AUGUST 8, 1846. THE RESERVOIR. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 8 August 1846

THE     MORETON BAY COURIER.                             SATURDAY, AUGUST 8, 1846. THE RESERVOIR. The necessity for the inhabitants of North Brisbane taking immediate steps to obtain a more copious supply of pure water is generally admitted ; and, as a preliminary attempt to effect this object, we would earnestly advise that application be imme- diately made to the Government through the authorities here, to reserve that portion of land in the township, where the Re- servoir is situated, being section 22, be- tween George and Albert streets. In our opinion, this part ought to have been reserved when the township was laid out ; and it is a matter of surprise that Sir George Gipps, when he gave directions to Mr. Wade for its survey, did not do so. It is not, however, too late to r...
