CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. (From the Hobart Town Advertiser.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 2 October 1847

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. CJFrom the Hobart Town Advertiser. J We have received Cape papers to the end of May. The intelligence is more satisfactory, but less exciting, than when the Caffir war raged though things are still not perfectly arrangea. The intelligence from Caffirlnnd is scanty, and so far as it goes,' pacific. It is said that Sandilla being asked by a public officer whether lie con- sidered himself and his people at peace with the .colony, and whether he would be satisfied with such tracts of country as, Government might assign them, replied : -" 1 told you six months ago, that it was peace., There is nothing but peaces Wc are all peaceable. As for land, we had .too .little before the war, and cannot do with less now.?' It would be an odd thing if the cam- paign should end in a joke.-Üwih African Com- mercial Advertiser, May 22. , . ¡ \ ! t, Meantime the leturn of peace has given room Tor local improvements.

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 2 October 1847

PORT PHILLIP. We have received files of Port Phillip papers to the 2nd Sept.' The following are extracts : ''Important.-We learn from' the Portland Guardian, that at a late meeting of the Legislative Council, of South Australia, Governor Robe in- formed the members that the amount of passage money hitherto usually charged by owners of vessels for conveying immigrants to South Aus traliaj from British ports, was £18, but that now the^ amount is reduced to less than £12. His Excellency attributed, in part, the large reduction to his having remitted home the greater part of the cash for immigration purposes, through the Commissariat, but this mode of remittance could have only, in a very limited manner, influenced the reduction, and we may reasonably hope that thearoount^ of, passage money is permanently re- duced by owners.-Melbourne Argus.

EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 2 October 1847

EXTRACTS. Grhece.-Public Execution.-The following horrible scene lins taken place at Nauplia, in H leece:-Two brigands, Demetrius and Theo dosius Tryphoudoulos, were brought out for exe- cution-in the principal square of the town. They both walked quietly to' the scaffold, but whpn the executioner approached Demetrius to bind him to the fatal -plank, the latter, who was a man of gi- gantic stature and herculean strength, bust his cords, and overthrew the executioner and his as- sistants. On their endeavouring to seize him, when they regained their legs, Demetrius beat them severely, and threatened to pitch them off the scaffold among the people, and was carrying his threats into execution, when the executioner drew a long-bladed knife from under his dress. and stabbed Demetrius to the heart, who fell dead upon the platform. The executioner then de- capitated the corpse. The other brother, Theo dosius, on the contrary, seemed perfectly resigned to his fate, and submitted himself quie...

THE [?]oreton [?]ap Courier. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1847. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 2 October 1847

THE Moreton Bay Courier     SATURDAY, OCTOBER 2, 1847. The time has arrived when emigration must be viewed as a most momentous de- partment of national policy, and when it must be practically considered and adopted Jiy the Imperial Legislature as the only efficient remedy for the accumulating dis- tress and destitution of a very large pro- portion of the population not only of the mother country, but of many of the provinces in India, where labour is superabundant, and whence poor people would gladly expatriate them sel \ es, if sufficient inducement were held out by those desirous of giving them constant employment. Hitherto the British Go- vernment has not given that attention to this subject which its importance impe- ratively demands. Upon the actual con- dition of the labour market there has been much discussion in and out of Parliament, and the grossest ignorance has been dis- played by some who might have been ex- pected to have possessed the most am...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 2 October 1847

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent.)     Wednesday, Sept. 15.-In a former communica-   tion I had to draw your attention to the very great inconvenience to which the public were subjected from the non-attendance of Magistrates, I regret to say that the evil still continues. To-day, when the hour appointed for holding the Court arrived, not a single J.P. was to be seen, notwithstanding that a number of suitors, with their witnesses, were in attendance,-for some time all eyes were directed to "the hill," looking anxiously for the   C. C L., but he was. as the bailiff said, " non- est-come-at-abus." In this dilemma, our resident Magistrate was applied to, but he declined attend- ing until a roster was formed. As I formerly stated, the whole onus of deciding affairs in this Court rests principally upon Doctors Simpson and Dorsey, but when these gentlemen have other, and to themselves more important business to trans...

That there is at the present moment the most urgent demand for labour in.the colony of New South Wales; that this demand is daily increasing, and is more pressing than has been experienced at any former period ; and that unless a due sup- ply of immigrants be speedily obtained, the furn of many employers of labour must inevitably en-^ sue--and the general welfare of all classes of die colonists be seriously impaired. ~ 2.
