NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 11 September 1847

NEW ZEALAND. The news from New Zealand is to the 24th July, a month later than formerly. The natives were troublesome in the vicinity of the Wanganui River, and a flotilla of ten armed boats, passing up the river, had poured into the enemy's camp a volley of round, grape, and rockets, which killed and wounded thirty-three natives, dispersing the remainder. No loss on our side.

THE DISCOVERIES OF 1846. (From the Dublin Evening Mail, April 5.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 11 September 1847

THE DISCOVERIES OF 1846. (From the Dublin Evening Mail. April 5.) We apprehend that there can be no doubt that the year 1846 will be memorable to the end of time, for the remarkable extensions of new ap- plications of human knowledge, which will come before future historians, as rendering illustrious its narrow limits. Most evident it is that we are now living in the days predicted by the Hebrew prophet, when " many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased." 1. Foremost among these may be placed the use of ether inhaling, for the facilitating surgical operations. Like all other applications of the kind, it meets with failures, and even with fatal results, in a few cases. But, for one fatal result and five failures, we have five hundred instances of vast benefit ; in many of which, beyond all doubt, lives have been saved, which would otherwise have been lost. Without describing it as infallible, or in all cases safe, or to be relied on, there can be no doubt that this d...

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 1847. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 11 September 1847

THE iii o r c t o ii 33 a » Courier. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 1847. THERE are few subjects more worthy of the attention of a philanthropic mind than the singular position in which recent ameliorations in the British Criminal Law have placed those who have formerly been the objects of its more stringent opera- tions. The savage and bloody ordinances which disgraced Britain during the reign of George the Third-which invited and ensured the disgust of every nation in Europe-and which plied the hangman's trade until the halter became almost a national emblem,-these at length are swept from the statute book. No longer the sheep-stealer suffers the death of the murderer ; no longer do we see girls of sixteen swinging- from the gallows for some petty theft committed upon their employers ; and no longer does the' mag- nanimous Englishman-the hater of bull- fights !-glut his eyes weekly upon the string of corpses Butchered to make a London holiday. Those days are past, and the voices of the f...

To tJie Editor of Ute Moreton Bay Courier. SIR,-On Wednesday night last, at about ten o'clock, the residents in Queen-street were alarmed by the report of a pistol. On enquiry, it wan ascertained that a constable named M*Allister had thought proper to amuse Himself, by shooting a dog under the windows of some of tlïe inhabitants. Will you inform me if those men are'permitted to use fire-arms so indiscriminately, as I have heaul of sucli á thing as the rebounding of a bullet. If they have such an authority, I shall take steps to render my windows pistol-proof. " ".« >> " Yours respectfully , f u n lit/Il A SUBSCRIBER. Brisbane, Sept. 9, 1847.

VAN DIEMEN'S LAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 11 September 1847

VAN PIEMEN'S LAND. WE extract the following from our Van Diemen's files to 10th ultimo : ANOTHER OF THE FATHEUS OF THE COLONIES. -On Wednesday, died at New Norfolk, Robert Cox, one of the original settlers at i^ew South Wales with Governor Phillip. He had obtained a settlement at Norfolk Island, and was removed there when it was occupied by the Crown to New Norfolk. His age was not accurately known, but it was more than ninety. He was twice married within the last twenty years, and buried both his wives.-Hobart Town Advertiser. REMNANT OF ABORIGINES.-Some sealers from the west coast report having fallen in with a party of natives, consisting of seven men and one woman. Their story is consistent, and there seems no motive that could induce them to invent a fiction of the kind.-Launceston Examiner. EMIGRATION.-It has been suggested that the London Agency should offer a premium for the best essay on the subject of emigration to this colony. The funds could be collected by a special sub...

PUNCH. A FEW WORDS WITH JOHN BRIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 11 September 1847

PUNCH. A FEW WORDS WITH JOHN BRIGHT. John, thou art a sturdy,, stalwart sort of man,, speaking roundly out, with something of a good* English leaven in thee ; but thou art hot,. John,, and thou xiskest to be ungenerous and ignoble in thy speech on the Short-time Bilk Punch would urge on thee, in kindness, certain truths which thou hast forgotten. Thou callest this a Bill to control adult labour. It would limit the working-hours of boys between thirteen and eighteen, and women of all ages, to* something under twelve hours a day. Thou say est that when the work of the young stops, stops that of the grown man. If mules and spindles are not tended, and threads pieced, the power-loom must pause and the spindle stay idle. Does not this apply in the case of children below thirteen ? Might not the same argument have held to keep them to their twelve, thirteen, and fifteen hours* daily toil, while big men could be found willing to labour so long, and requiring the children's aid P There is a...

COLONIAL ABSTRACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 11 September 1847

COLONIAL ABSTRACT. Sly-grog selling and other nuisances are per- petrated to a great extent on the debateable land between this colony and South Australia, the boundary line not being defined.-It is said that Lord Grey, at the instance of Mr. Cunninghame, has consented to allow settlers in Port Phillip to bring out or send for servants from England, giving them an order on the land fund for the amount of the passage-money.-The Melbourne papers allude to a report, that when Port Phillip is separated the government will be conferred on Mr. E. D. Thomson.--The convicts in Van Die- mens Land are, it is said, to be allowed three and a half ounces of tobacco per week.-A man, praising porter, said it was so excellent a beverage, that though taken in great quantities, it always made him fat. " I have seen the time (said an- other) when it made you lean." " When P I should be glad to know," inquired the eulogist. Why, no longer since than last night-against a wall."-It appears to be very dou...

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 11 September 1847

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. SIR,-Permit me through the medium of your columns to expose an absurd and ridiculous system much practised by publicans and store, or rather shop-keepers, in this town-I allude to that of disguising, or endeavouring to disguise, the calling to which they belong. Prior to my visit to Brisbane I had always un- derstood that with the exception of the Govern- ment officers there were no private individuals residing within the town ; what then was my surprise to find nearly the whole town composed of what appeared to me to be, and- (for ought I yet know to the contrary except by rumour) are, private residences. Even many of the public houses-the owners of which 1 had always un- derstood were by law obliged to affix to their houses some external sign or intimation of the «' deeds done within"-hero appear to be the habi- tations of gentlemen who from pure motives of philanthropy, and not from the love of lucre, are desirous of promoting the convivi...

SELECT POETRY. THE ANGELA-WATCH; OR, THE SISTERS. (From the Literary Gazette.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 11 September 1847

SELECT POETRY THE ANGEL- WATCH ; OR, THE SISTERS. (From the Literary Gazette.)                 A daughter watch'd, at midnight, Her dying mother's bed ;     For five long nights she had not slept, And many tears were shed . A vision, like an angel, came, * Which none but her might see ; " Sleep, duteous child (the angel said), And I will watch for thee."       Sweet slumber, like a blessing, fell Upon the daughter's face. The angel smiled, and touched her not, But gently took her place. And oh, so lull of human love Those pitying eyes did shine, The angel-guest half mortal seem'd   The slumberer half divine.     Like rays of light the sleeper's locks In warm, loose curls were thrown;       Like rays of light the angel's hair   ...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 11 September 1847

PORT PHILLIP. WE have received files of Port Phillip papers to the 17th August, from which we glean the follow- ing items :-   DISCHARGES OF SERVANTS.-Forged discharges are becoming so frequent in the bush, that the taking and giving discharges at all is becoming a perfect farce. The law in its present state not punishing men for forgeries of this nature, al- leging that as the object is to get a quid pro quo, or payment for labour, no intention of fraud can be proved. An intelligent settler proposed as a remedy for this, that all persons holding licenses should be compelled to give discharges with their names printed as well as written on them, and no person should be authorised in hiring a man without either such discharge, or, if employed by an unlicensed person, a certificate from the nearest justice. Two men, proceeding to Melbourne with- out discharges, hit upon the following expedient to supply the deficiency. One engaged his mate to carry his pack to the next pu...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 11 September 1847

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. ALLEGED MURDER BV THE BLACKS.-Just as we were going to press, information reached us to the effect that a black named Charley, belonging to one of the Brisbane River tribes, had taken two letters from the settlement yesterday morning to the Pine River, with instructions to deliver them to some sawyers, who were at work in the scrubs at the Pine River. On his arrival at their en- campment, he found that the cook, a white man, had been murdered by the natives, and the two sawyers missing from the place, and nowhere to be found. A number of blacks were observed in the immediate neighbourhood, and as soon as they perceived him, commenced a pursuit, which he evaded by putting spurs to his horse, and gallop- ing away to the settlement. The above particulars have been furnished to us in haste, but we believe some reliance maybe placed on their truthfulness. DISCOUNTING.-It will bo seen by our adver- tising columns that a gentleman named Appleton, connected with the h...
