BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 7 August 1847

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. English news to the 2nd April has been received by the John Fleming, (the April packet ship), which vessel arrived in Sydney on the 26th ult., having made the passage in 114 days. The Queen's accouchment, it is confidently stated, would take place in August. The inauguration of Pi ince Albert, as Chan- cellor of the University of Cambridge, took place on the 25th March, in Buckingham Palace. It is said that the whole Court influence was employed to procure his return. The Court gossips have got hold of a tale about the Queen having dis- covered a number of Punch containing a carica- ture on the Cambridge election, in which Cruik shank's original drawing of the "Election of Beadle" is parodied, and the Prince set forth as the beadle candidate " with five small children, and a wife.*' The royal ire was violently aroused thereat. The Prince himself took the thing in good part, but is terribly alarmed lest the last »briquet of .. Dr. Albert" should stic...

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, AUGUST 7, 1847. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 7 August 1847

            THE MORETON BAY COURIER. SATURDAY, AUGUST 7, 1847. Suggestions with a view to the formation of a company to promote the cultivation of cotton and other tropical produce, by means of European free labour, in the territory of Cook's Land, or the northern division of the colony of New South Wales, and also to promote Protestant emigration to the said territory, by J. D. Lang. Such is the title of a new pamphlet which has just issued from the prolific pen of Dr. Lang, and published in Edinburgh, with the view of attracting public attention to this portion of the colony, as a field for emigration. The Doctor proposes " that a company shall be formed at Manchester, for the progressive purchase of a million of acres of the best land, for the cultiva- tion of cotton and other tropical products, one half of the purchase money to be ex- pended on roads and other improvements, and the other in the yearly ...

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 14 August 1847

T-o the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. Sir,-I regret to notice the disgraceful apathy displayed by the inhabitants of this district with respect to the state of the public thoroughfares. A large sum has been voted by the Legislative Council for the repairs of the roads and bridges throughout the colony, and yet the inhabitants have not taken any steps to obtain tlieir fair pro- portion of the amount which should be expended m Moreton Bay. The rainy season is fast ap- proaching, and just at the time when the roads ought to he in thorough repair, they will he scarcely passable for the wool-teams. Of course, when the floods do come there will be a great outcry, and " curses both loud and deep" will be heard throughout the length and breadth of the land. The truth is, the inhabitants are themselves to blame for njt making application to the Governor, for it appears to me to be a settled maxim of the Executive not to grant any sum unless it is hum- bly prayed for-unless the language ...

CROWNS FOR WOULD-BE KINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 14 August 1847

CROWNS FOR WOULD-BE KINGS. When Lucy Lockit sees Captain Macheath in chain3-the. lighter ones, sold by her dear papa, who has them " from one guinea to ten"-she vows there is nothing so touching as the sight of a great man in distress. The Morning Post im- proves upon this sensibility. With Jenkins, the smaller the hero, the greater his claims to loyalty and sympathy. Hence, when Jenkins catches an exiled prince, lie insists upon crowning him, and calling him Majesty. On a recent occasion Punch, as a faithful journalist, gave a brief account of the coronation oí the Conde Monte molin at the office of the Morning Post ; whence he issued, to the astonishment of at least the pub- lisher, as the King of the Two Spains. Full of .his new dignity he rushed to the Haymarket to astonish Webster with his sudden majesty, and called for the farce of The Pillage Lawyer (if we do not mistake-and we never do,) and re- warded the manager for his touching performance of Sheepface with the order (in ...

EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 14 August 1847

EXTRACTS. Emigration.--There is nothing to complain 'of m Sir George Grey's refusal last night to dis- cuss the subject of emigration, introduced by Mr. Hutt. As he hinted, it is of too much importance, to be taken up incidentally. But it is to be hoped that either Government may without loss of time state their intention with regard to emigration, or that Mr. Hutt, or some other private member, who IiaB devoted time to that subject, will bring it before Parliament in the form of a substantive motion. There is a strong und widely diffused feeling in favour of emigration out of doors ; and the appro- bation with which Mr. Hutt's remarks were caught up and attended to, shows that the members of the House of Commons have been turning their at- tention in. the same direction* An incidental allusion to colonization by Earl Fitz\yil!iam was . favourably received in the House of Lords, nearly at the same time that Mr. Hutt was.speaking. It is also worthy of notice, that" the remarks both o...

FIGHTS TO COME OFF. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 14 August 1847

FIGHTS TO COME OFF. Lord Brougham is ready to meet Earl Devon, or Lord Londonderry, or any lord in the House, to have two or three rounds with them, on any subject on any night, for any sum. Lord Brougham begs to tell Lord Campbell, that he is not afraid to come up to the scratch at any time his lordship is in sufficient training to have a spar with him. Lord Brougham defies Lord Londonderry or any of the Irish landlords to a good, fair, stand-up fight on their own grounds. He only asks for fair play, and as for favour, he wants none, and will give none. Lord Brougham challenges all England, Ire- land, and Scotland, to spar with him. His lord- ship is not particular as to weight, size, or condi- tion, or age, and he does not mind what are the odds. His lordship's money is lodged at Bellamy's. Lord Brougham challenges the whole world upon the same terms.-Ibid.

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, AUGUST 14, 1847. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 14 August 1847

THE oretoii 33 a y Courier. SATURDAY, AUGUST 14, 1847. "The labour question again ! Often as .our pen has been employed upon this sub- ject, it is still a most fertile theme for comment. It does not need the present dearth of labour to prove its necessity. Infinitely superior as the penman knows himself to be to the implement which he uses, yet without it he would be nothing, and, on the other hand, the pen would be worthless to him if its motions and per- formances were not such as he could not subject to his will and controul by the power of his own judgment. Such is the situation of those who must depend upon the physical agency of others for the fulfilment of their plans, or for the pro- sperity of their affairs. If the instrument fails, he who uses it must also fail in his object. We have been induced this week to recur to the old subject (good though old) .in consequence of repeated "instances which have come to our knowledge of the gross misbehaviour of hired servants in this...

PRINCE ALBERT AT HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 14 August 1847

PRINCE ALBERT AT HOME. ' Few will doubt that his Royal Highness Prince ¿'Albert is the only legitimate successor to the late "Charles Matthews; who was distinguished for his »?wonderful impersonation of a variety of different characters. It is expected that the Prince will shortly be able to give an " Athoim-," comprising a series of sketches from the repertoire of his favourite impersonations. It is expected that this new addition to his old stock of parts-namely, that of Chancellor of the University of Cambridge -will afford the most ample food for merriment. His well known sketch of a Bencher of Lincoln's ? Inn is a very delicious piece of acting, and his Field-Marshal, though bordering on caricature, is a rich piece of extravagance. The perfect manner in which he " makes up" for all the different parts, however opposite they may be, is truly as- tonishing. An entertainment interspersed with songs might be prepared for his Royal Highness, who could no doubt do justice to it, as h...

CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 14 August 1847

CHINA. By private advices from China we learn that Spanish vessels from Manila had been at Amoy for the purpose of procuring Chinese labourers to proceed to Cuba, to be employed as coolies on estates. Their contracts are, we believe, for terms ofv.seven to ten years, at three drs. per month, and* rice and fish found them. The Spanish agents are said to have found no difficulty in pro curing as many men as they required. We are doubtful whether this mode of paying the coolies will be found as advantageous to their employers as giving them a small direct interest in the pro duce of their labour ; but perhaps there may be difficulties "attending the adoption of such a plan, especially at first. If it is considered desirable to send coolies from Amoy to Cuba, where«there is such a command of slave labonr, we should think they would be found very desirable auxiliaries to the planter in the British West Indies, and much superior to the Indian labourers who are being at present sent there ...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. DR. LEICHHARDTS EXPEDITION. We are informed that Dr. Leichhardt arrived at Mr. Russell's station on the Condamine, about a a fortnight since, and that he intends, as soon as he has recruited himself, to proceed to the Fitz Roy Downs, in order to ascertain its exact distance from Darling Downs, and whether there is a good practicable route for stock, as there appears tube considerable doubt whether the party alluded to in our paper of the 30th ultimo, had reached so far in the interior. Mr. Mann and Mr. Hely arrived in Brisbane on Thursday even- ing ; both are suffering very severely from the effects of the malady the party were visited with on the Mackenzie River. The expedition arrived at the Mackenzie on the 5th March, having been detained for several days at the Comet River in consequence of the floods. Two days prior to their arrival, Perry, the saddler, was taken ill, and was unable to travel without support. The next day several more of the party fell si...

O I' C t 0 II THE 33 a y Coulter. SATURDAY, AUGUST 21, 1847. WE publish in our fourth page the New Squatting Regulations as passed by the Queen in Council on the 9th of March. They differ in several essential points from the draft of the orders previously forwarded by Earl Grey to the Governor, and exhibit such a lamentable want of knowledge on the part of the Home Go- vernment regarding the vital interests of the stockholders, and the colonists gene- rally, that they will excite no other feel- ing but disgust throughout the length and breadth of the land. The present regulations have been framed by men who appear to be determined at all risks, and ¿t whatever cost, to bolster up the abo- minable one pound per acre system ; in every clause this determination is appa- rent, and accordingly we find that culti- vation of the settled lands, which by a fiction of law are supposed to be vested in the Crown, is absolutely prohibited. In the intermediate lands, the squatters -may, it is tru...
