ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 21 August 1847

ENGLISH NEWS. BY the British Sovereign arrived at Adelaide, news from England to the 13th April, ten days later than previous advices, has reached the colony. We are indebted to the Port Phillip Herald, South Australian Register, and Melbourne Argus, for the following extracts : THE QUEEN.-It will be seen by our ? brief, account of the late drawing room, that the Queen wore an Irish tabinet-colours green and gold, a gold shamrock on a creen ground. This was evidently meant m a compliment to Ireland, and as such, we are sure, tier Majesty's subjects in Ireland will receive and appreciate it.-Dublin Freeman's Journal. The Turkish Ambassador has presented his wife to the Queen, at a drawing-room. She wore the ordinary court costume of an English lady, and her face was wholly unconcealed. His Excellency was in the dress of his country and office. ' Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, accompanied by the Princess Mary, are about to visit their relations in Germany. -...

THE GENERAL CEMETRY BILL. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 21 August 1847

THE GENERAL CEMETRY BILL. WITH mingled feelings of sorrow and indignation   we have read in the Sydney Morning Herald, of August 1st, a report of the absurd opposition to the third reading of this wise and benevolent enactment. Unanimous as all must be in depre- cating the horrible practice of polluting the at- mosphere of a town with the pestiferous effluvia arising from charnel houses; yet, at the latest moment, a factious few stand forward to split straws upon the minor and insignificant details of a measure-conceived in a spirit of liberality and expediency-to remedy that evil. And what is the chief objection? Why that the dead of all denominations are to be buried in one general cemetry ! To meet religious scruples the Bill con- tains a clause securing to each profession the ex- clusive use of that portion of ground, allotted,to their sects respectively ; and clergymen are pro- hibited from performing service in any part of the burial place but that devoted to thei...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 21 August 1847

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent. J There was but one case for adjudication on the 18th inst., Henry May, ticket-of-leave, for breach of the Hired Servants' Act, in absenting himself several times from the Long Pocket Boiling-down Establishment. The case being clearly proved, the Bench muleted him in the amount of wages due up to and for this day, directing him to return and fulfil his engagement, and cautioning him as to his future conduct, so as to save his ticket from being cancelled.   Mr. Peter Nichol applied for a transfer of his license, as a confectioner, from the town to the house situated at Little Ipswich, formerly occupied as a public-house by Mr. M. Sheehan. The Bench declined acceding to the application, principally, I believe, on the ground that there was no police force stationed there. A memorial, addressed to His Excellency the Governor, praying for the extension to this town of the privileges of the Act 2nd Vict., No. 18, was ha...

To the Editor of tie Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 28 August 1847

To the Editor of tJie Moreton Bay Courier. SIR,-Being aware of your anxiety to unravel any knotty points that may puzzle the public brain for the moment, I hasten to inform you of a circum- stance that has caused much surprise to those interested, with the bnpp flint you may be able to dispel the mystery attached to it. It is that a gentleman has lately arrived in this district who Possesses a license for the whole of the Fitz Roy )own3, as well as a copy of Sir Thomas Mitchell's chart of that country, to conduct him to his newly acquired territory. You may imagine the disappointment that this intelligence has caused to the numerous over landers who intended forming new stations in that district. I would indeed be grateful if you can inform me how an individual is enabled to obtain such advantages over his fellows, or how I can place myself in equally happy circumstances with this favoured party, providing (which is question- able) I may be able to discover a new and service- able c...

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 28 August 1847

VAN ÜIEMEN'S LAND. fFrom the Sydney Morning Herald. J By the Louisa we have received Van Diemen's Land papers to the 31st ultimo. It will be re- membered that a question had been raised as to the power of the Governor to appoint new mem- bers of Council until those appointed by his pre- decessor had resigned, and that His Excellency stated that the opinion of the Judges and law officers was, that his appointments were legally made. On the 30th ultimo, however, when the Council assembled, His Excellency read the fol- lowing minute adjourning the session : Gentlemen, -Since our last meeting circum- stances have come to my knowledge respecting the appointments of the six former members of the Legislative Council, which, by bringing into question the correctness of the facts upon which their Honors the Chief Justice and Mr. Justice Montagu founded their opinions of the irregularity and illegality of these appointments, have of course deprived their opinions of the weight which would oth...

A. DISCOVERY. To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 28 August 1847

A. DISCOVERY. To the Editor of the 'Moreton Bay Courier. Sm,-1- One of the chief arguments used by those who oppose Cleveland Point as a site fora town, is the impossibility of any person landing there in consequence of the extensive mud Hats to seaward. I am willing to confess that this would be a slight drawback to a seaport town, but art may accom- plish that for which nature affords few facilities. I have read with much admiration an ingenious proposal to explore the interior of Australia by means of aerostation. Might not the same science be successfully applied to the difficulty in question ? A few good air-worthy balloons would be sufficient for the transportation of passengers and cargo to and from the extremity of the mud and the dry land. I am aware that the strong sea gales which prevail during the wool season would retard the passage out, but to obviate this objection I propose that artificial land breezes should be created by means of several gigantic pairs of bellows t...

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 28 August 1847

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. SIR,-In your paper of the 14th instant, appears an article severely aspersing the character of the labouring classes in this district, and you have previously endeavoured to show that the labourers of Moreton Bay are the best paid and most discon- tented set of men in the universe. But did you never hear of masters who, to use a colonial phrase, are no chop, who take very mean advantages of their men,- who charge them nine pence for every extra pouud of sugar, thirty-five ' shillings for a pair of blankets, and other things in the same ratio,-and who, on slight pretexts, have succeeded in mulcting their servants of every farthing that was due to them, when the Magi- strates have been squatters to a man, and when thete has been no editorial reporter to hold their misdeeds in check ? If you have not heard of such things, I have. There was a time, and that not quite four years ago, when thousands of people in this fair land were reduced to work...

PUNCH. THE ST. STEPHEN'S STEEPLE-CHASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 28 August 1847

PUNCH. THE ST. STEPHEN'S STEEPLE-CHASE. A grand heat was run in the House of Commons on the day of thei opening of Parliament. The number that started is not exactly known, but there was a strong muster in the field, every one of whom was in good condition. The distance to be run was from Canning's Statue to the seat of the leader of the Opposition on the left of the St. Stephen's training-ground. Upper Benjamin (Disraeli) took the lead, but Sancho Panza (Borthwick) was close upon his heels. They were followed by Bath Brick (Roebuck), and Brazennose (Inglis), Bumpkin (Bankes), Grimaldi (Sibthorpe), and others of a like breed, who soon broke down, for want of mettle. At this point, The Hope of the Country (Bentinck), came out very strong, but at the corner the Manchester Pet (Lincoln), who had been hitherto in the rear, made a rush, and passed the Hope of the Country with the greatest ease. After this he had the running all to himself, fíe cleared the different benches in the most ma...

STEAM COMMUNICATION BETWEEN ENGLAND AND AUSTRALIA. (From the Maitland Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 28 August 1847

.STEAM COMMUNICATION BETWEEN ENGLAND AND AUSTRALIA. ' CFrom the Maitland Mercury. J A short time ago we copied from our Sydney -contemporary, the Herald an account of au in- terview which took place at the Colonial Office be- tween Earl Grey, and Sir George Larpent, the Hon. F. Scott, and Mr. M. Boyd, and others in- terested in these colonies, respecting the extension of steam communication to Australia. The Colo- nial Minister was anxious to see the wishes of the colonists carried into eftect, but could not promise any assistance from the impel ial revenue, owing to the pressing demand on it to provide food for the destitute in Ireland and the Highlands of Scotland. Finding this to be the case, the depu- tation suggested that a company might probably be formed, if the Government were disposed to grant a charter. Earl Grey expressed his belief that no objection would be felt to granting a charter ; on the contrary, he thought that every facility would be afforded. From more recent a...

LATEST GENERAL NEWS. BÏ the arrival of the William, yesterday, we have been put in possession of Sydney papers to the 17th instant, from which we learn that news from England to the 24th April had been received via Singapore. The greatest scarcity of money prevailed, in consequence principally of the continued drain of specie to pay for provisions ; and the Bank of England had raised the rate of interest to five per cent. Two very important discussions had taken place in the House of Commons. The Bill for giving further relief to the Roman Catholics, which was denounced by Sir R. Inglis as having a direct tendency to " unprotestantise" England, was rejected by a majority of 158 to 129. The vote for education according to the plan proposed by the Government, was earned by a majority of 372 to 47. Trade had been very dull, but it was expected there would be an improvement in the coming month. The.- tallow fraud, recently exposed, has been more extensive than was at first supposed. The...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. BRISBANE MARKET.-The price of fat cattle during the last quarter has ranged from £2 15s. to. £3, and fat wethers have been disposed of at 7s. per head. The town has been tolerably sup- plied with vegetables, which have fetched re- munerating prices to the market gardeners. Í)R. LEICHHARDT.-This indefatigable explorer started from Mr. Russell's station on the Conda- mine, en route to Fitz Roy Downs, on the 10th instant, accompanied by Mr. Bunce.Mr. Frederick Isaac, one of the assistants in the late expedition, and a black boy, with the intention of connecting his discoveries with those of Sir Thomas Mitchell. The party will probably be absent about five or six weeks. Dr. Leichhardt is very much improved in health, but is still weak, and suffers a good deal occasionally from rheumatism. He hus taken three pack mules, and horses for the pat ty. On his return the Doctor iutends visiting Brisbane, and will then proceed to Sydney. ASSAULT CASE.-Since the publication...

ORIGINAL POETRY. THE CABBAGE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 28 August 1847

ORIGINAL POETRY. THE CABBAGE WAR. Within the " settled" districts a voice was heard of wailing, For all the squatting interest the scurvy was assailing ; And with a face of woe, like a charity petitioner, A melancholy man sat the Crown Lands Com- missioner. " Oh » whof T fate is mine ! what a life of sad monotony ! Riding o'er the land to suppress domestic botany ! To please the Secretary I am madeja garden raker, Because he cannot sell the land for twenty bob an acre. " You can plunder as you jilease now, ye mutton eating savages, There's a kitchen-garden war, a crusade against the cabbages, Attach'd to my party I've a score of ploughs and harrows To exterminate the pumpkins and the vegetable marrows.
