THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, AUGUST 28, 1847. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 28 August 1847

  THE   Moreton Bay Courier           SATURDAY, AUGUST 28, 1847.   li IT will be seen by section 2 of the new squatting code that the rent to be paid for each run is to be proportioned to the number of sheep or equivalent number of cattle which the run shall be estimated as capable of carrying, according to a scale to be established by the Governor ; but that such rent shall not in any case be less than ten pounds per annum for four thousand sheep, or equivalent number of cattle, and two pounds ten shillings for every additional thousand. The most objectionable feature in this section is that the Governor may increase the amount of rent at his pleasure, so that a despotic ruler might, if so inclined, by one stroke of the pen, fix the rent of a station at one hundred pounds. The placing of such power in the hands of one man is no better than a tyranny, and is so diametrically oppos...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 28 August 1847

ENGLISH NEWS. By the Lochnagar,arrived at Launceston, English news to the 17th April has been received. Our Van Diemeri's Land papers not having come to hand, we are indebted to the Sydney Herald for the following items : Parliament reassembled on the 15th April, when the Lords took possession of their new chamber in the new Parliament House. A scheme of " Hiberno-Canadian" emigration was said to be under the consideration of the Ministry. In Ireland the distress was unabated. The Central Relief Fund amounted to £365,000, of which £160,000 had been paid on account of the collections in churches under the Queen's letter. In France and Belgium the greatest distress prevailed, and serious riots had taken place. Notwithstanding the tightness of the money market, trade continued brisk, and the aspect of the wool market was said to be encouraging. King Louis Philippe had been seriously ill, but was recovering. A new line of steam packets, belonging to an American Company, was to commence ...

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 4 September 1847

To the Edäor of the Moreton Bay Courier. SIR,-I have read in your paper of the 28th ult. a letter signed- " A Working Hand." As the writer does not deny the truth of your statements regarding the generally insubordinate conduct of the labouring men in this district, I presume that his object is to justify them in pursuing that course, by alluding to the prices charged by em- ployers in the bush for provisions, and to the fact that squatters form the majority of magistrates bevpnd the boundaries. I will deal wkh this latter coníplainrrirsT^ -x11 me prcst-mcaíate of. tlils cok..i jr it is impossible that in pastoral districts we can have any other magistrates than the graziers, for the whole bush population is composed of those individuals and the labourers whom they employ -with the trifling exceptions of the very few Go- vernment officers and professional men. Until, therefore, the advance of improvement in future years conducts to what is now a wilderness other persons who are qual...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 4 September 1847

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. ' (From our Correspondent.)   THE summons list to-day, 1st September, contained only two cases, viz.,'the Queen v. Boulton, for   breach of the Slaughtering Act, which was dis- missed in consequence of an informality in the information. The second case was for a breach of an agreement, under the Hired Servants' Act, which was also dismissed, as the period for bring- ing the action had exceeded the term allowed by law. In the Small Debts' Court there were ten cases -one for £10- which was dismissed, the plaintiff not appearing. The remaining cases were under that sum, one of which was Horsman v. James Canning Pearce for wages ; the defendant pleaded a set-off for damage done to certain wool during a thunder storm in the month of January last ; but as it appeared that this took place subsequent to the plaintiff leaving Mr. Pearce's employ, and while acting without fee or reward, merely to oblige Mr. Campbell, the then lessee of...

AMERICA. BATTLE BETWEEN THE AMERICANS AND MEXICANS. In our last issue we gave, amongst the English extracts, a short notice of the latest news from the seat of war in Mexico, in which it was affirmed that another victory had been gained over Santa Anna. We are now enabled to lay before the public full particulars of the battle, which we ex- tract from the Hobart Town Courier of the 7 th instant. v NEWS OF THE BATTLES CONFIRMED.

LEICHHARDTS EXPEDITION. (Extract of a letter from Dr. Leichhardt.) Russel's Station, Darling Downs, 1st August, 1847. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 4 September 1847

LEICHHARDTS EXPEDITION. (Extract of a letter from Dr. Leichhardt.) Russel's Station, Darling Downs, 1st August, 1847. The news of my return to the Downs will no doubt have reached you by the last steamer from Moreton Bay. I had hoped to go by her to Sydney, and that expectation, added to a very severe rheu- matism in my hands, prevented by writing by her. I wrote to you last from Charley's Creek, mentioning the loss and recovery of my mules, horses, and cattle. I had despatched Mr. Hely in quest of intelligence of Sir T. Mitchell's expedition, of whose return I had been informed, but by some accident of the post, neither your letters nor Sir Thomas's despatches ever reached me. Mr. Hely, Mr. Turnbull, and Brown, joined me forty miles farther on my journey, and we travelled quietly without accident down the Dawson, then running so strong as to compel us to take advantage of a large tree which had fallen across it, to convey our baggage over. At Ruined Castle Creek, I left one of my h...
