EXTRACT FROM AN UNPUBLISHED ROMANCE CALLED "BRISBANE IN THE OLDEN TIME." THE NIGHT ATTACK. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 17 July 1847

EXTRACT FROM AN UNPUBLISHED RO- MANCE CALLED « BRISBANE IN THE OLDEN TIME." THE NIGHT ATTACK. THE night was moonless. Cold and fitful gusts of wind swept at intervals over the earth, seeming for the moment to extinguish the stars which were immediately re-ignited by each other's lays. No other sound was heard-save the ripple of the Brisbane against the rotten sleepers of our vene- rable wharf, or .the solitary tread of a solitary trap in our solitary streets. It was such a night as those in which a philosopher would delight to lie amidst fleecy blankets, and listen with a com- mendable feeling of pleasure to the howling of the wind amongst the dilapidated garments of his houseless brethren. All else was hushed, still, noiseless, quiet and silent ; when three persons, whose dress bespoke them warriors of the period, were "observed wending their way southward through the high street of the town. Something there was in the demeanour of those midnight wanderers which at once arrested th...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 17 July 1847

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. MADAGASCAR.-We are happy to learn that, within a few days, the Secretaries of the London Missionary Society have received intelligence from Madagascar of a very cheering character. About one hundred of the natives have been converted ; and, more striking still, Rakotondredáma,' the Queen's only son, and heir apparent to the throne, has embraced the truth, and (although only seven- teen years of age) has already manifested admira- ble prudence, courage, and steadfastness in his adherence to Christianity. Through his influence the lives of twenty-one believers who were doomed to martvrdom have been preserved; and his own religious progress is represented by the latest accounts as most satisfactory.-Leeds Mercury, Feb. 13. THE VALUE OF A DEAD HORSE IN PARIS. The use to which dead horses are put may be gathered from a brief account of the establishment at Moñtfaucon, near Paris, consisting of what we should call knackers' yards. After the horses are deposited there, th...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 17 July 1847

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. ERRONEOUS REPORTING AND ITS CONSEQUENCES. -r-It will, perhaps, be in the recollection of our readers that a paragraph appeared about six months ago, in this journal, respecting the death of a man from the bite of a snake at Mr. Ross's station on Darling Downs', whose name was stated by our informant to be Robert Tomlinson. We have since learned that the name of the party waa Robert Avery. As the statement remained un contradicted, we were quite unconscious of having been led into error until the other-day, when the veritable Robert Tomlinson himself walked into our office, and requested us to publish an expla- nation of the circumstances. Mrs. Tomlinson, it appears, resided in Sydney at the time the occur- rence was alleged to have taken place, and, with- out waiting for a confirmation of the reported death of her husband, has, it is said, married another man with whom she is now living. Tomlinson informs us that his friends at home lately sent out the sum of ...

COLONIAL. STOCK AND STATIONS.--Mr. Duncan M'Intyre,     of Ardachie, has purchased Mr. Hazlewood's station, adjoining his own, together with the stock thereon, consisting of about five hundred head of cattle, for, we have heard, £1000.

IRISH AND SCOTCH RELIEF FUND. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 17 July 1847

IRISH AND SCOTCH RELIEF FUND. AT a public meeting held in Sydney a few weeks since for the purpose of taking into consideration the best means of rais- ing funds for the relief of our suffering fellow-subjects in Ireland and Scotland, who are .now enduring all the horrors of famine, it was resolved that a Committee should be appointed to prepare au appeal to the colonists, and to open subscription lists in ordei\ that every one might have an opportunity of contributing, according to his means, towards a general fund, the amount of which, it is proposed,' shall be applied exclusively to bringing out emi- grants to this colony, whereby permanent relief will be afforded to the destitute poor and the colony greatly beuefittecl. The Committee have sent circulars to the Benches of Magistrates in this district, soliciting their zealous^co-opeiation m the object they have in view j and it will be seen by our advertising columns, that Captain Wickham has convened a public meeting of* the inh...

THE HARBOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 24 July 1847

THE HARBOUR. During the discussion which took place in the Legislative Council, on the 7th ult.-, respecting the salary of the Harbour Master at this port, the Colonial Secretary is reported to have said that the navigation of the harbour was " most difficult," and it required a person of superior qualifica tions to fill the office. With the latter part of this proposition we concur, hut we dissent entirely from the former. Such a statement might, if allowed to pass with out refutation, do a great deal of injury to this district, and we take the earliest opportunity of setting him right on the subject. If he meant that the southern entrance was "most difficult," we should have joined issue with him, for it undoubtedly is so ; hut then he ought to have mentioned that the northern passage into the Bay, recently suiveyed by Captain Wtckham, was not only the most desirable, but the best entrance to as secure a harbour as has yet been dis covered in New South Wales. It is nearly! a mile ...

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 24 July 1847

I To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. Sir,-The remarks made by you in your last paper on the imperfect mode in which the duties of Inspectors of Slaughter Houses are performed in this district, deserve the thanks of all interested in the prevention of cattle stealing. The intention of the Act, under which these officials are appointed, is sufficiently apparent to all who have considered the matter, being neither more nor less than to prevent parties clandestinely slaughtering cattle for sale. The only portion of the Act which appears worthy the notice and attention of the Inspectors, is that clause providing for their own fees. Colton, in his Lacon, observes that there is only one portion of Scripture studied universally by Governments-" And there went out a decree in the reign of Claudius Caesar, that all the world should be taxed." . The worthies, whose official conduct you have noticed, read the Slaughter House Act in a similar spirit, and with them it may be shortly render...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. PUBLIC MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 24 July 1847

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. PUBLIC MEETING. Pursuant to notice, a meeting of the inhabitants took place at the Court House in North Brisbane, on Thursday, for the purpose of taking into con- sideration the best means of raising subscriptions for the relief of the starving poor in Ireland and Scotland. Captain Wickham, R.N., officiated as Chairman. The meeting was respectably attended, and the liveliest interest was taken in the pro- ceedings. ' The Chairman said, the meeting had been con- vened with a view to the formation of a Committee to co-operate with a number of gentlemen in Sydney, who were desirous of affording permanent relief to the destitute poor in Ireland and Scot- land. It was not necessary that he should expa- tiate on the miserable condition of the objects in- tended to he relieved by the contributions of the colonists, as they had all doubtless read the har- rowing details which had from time to time ap- peared in the public prints, and which had been but too painfully c...

THE     Moreton Bay Courier.     —     SATURDAY, JULY 24, 1847.   DEATH OF SIR GEORGE GIPPS. Intelligence was received on the 6th inst. of the death of our late Governor Sir   George Gipps, who expired on the 28th February, at Canterbury, in the fifty- seventh year of his age. The event was announced to the Legislative Council by the Colonial Secretary, " who rose and said : Since he had entered the walls of the House he had received very unpleasant intelligence. (The honorable gentleman showed much emotion, which was evidently shared by the Council.) It was in- telligence which he knew the Council would receive with deep regret. It announced the death of one,   whom he, at least in his official character, and in the deep interest he had in the welfare of the   colony, had long learnt to regard with grateful   respect. From him he had receive...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 24 July 1847

NEW ZEALAND. By the Sir John Byng we have Port Nicholson papers to the 19th June. As was expected, on the arrival of Governor Grey at Wanganui, the re- bel natives, after a few skirmishes, retired into the interior, and are supposed to bave dispersedvuntil the next potato harvest. In the various skirmishes several natives are reported to have been killed, and tliiity wounded, but the soldiers escaped un- hurt. The old chief Rauparaha, who has been so long detained as a prisoner on board H.M.S. Calliope, was to be removed to Auckland, where he was to reside, Walker and other friendly natives having become guarantees for his future good conduct. It was under.tood that Governor Grey would return to Auckland about the 22nd of June, for the purpose of meeting Mr. Eyre, and making the necessary arrangements under the new Con- stitutional act, and that no further operations against the natives will take place until September, when the whole of the friendly natives in the northern part of t...

" As Mr. Gilbert's log, which has been sent home to you, fully narrates all particulars up to the eventful 28th of June, I shall offer no re- marks of my own. At the most n...

The Pope is. taking the most efficient and prompt measures for the advancement of the agri- cultural interests of his states.

His Holiness has also ordered all the con- vents and religious establishments to send in an exact return of' their receipts and expenses. In cases where the receipts are greater than the expenses, the surplus is to be applied to paying off the public debt, to the profit of the state. Many of these religious houses possess great wealth.

RETURN OF DR. LEICHHARDT. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 31 July 1847

RETURN OF DR. LEICHHARDT. We are informed by Mr. Ewer, a gentle- man who has recently taken up a station/ on the Condamine, and who arrived in Brisbane last evening, that Dr. Leichhardt 'and party have been compelled to return/to DarlingDowns,having lost nearly the whole ¡ of their cattle and goats, three horses and seven mules. It appears that all of the party had been suffering from fever and ague on the Mackenzie River, but they managed to rea&ch the Peak Downs, and were on the point of bearing off to the westward, when the stock got so wild that they could not be kept together. On one occasion Dr. Leichhardt was eighteen days absent from the camp, and was given up for lost. When he rejoined the party, without having recovered the cattle he was in search of, it was determined upon returning to Darling Downs immediately, and they reached Mr. Bligh's station, on the Con- damine, on Thursday week last, very much distressed, we regret to add^ both in mind and body, at the tem...
