COLONIAL. CANNIBALISM IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 9 October 1847

COLONIAL. CANNIBALISM IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA.', We extract the following letter, addressed to the Editor of the South Australian Register . Gentlemen,-A most revolting-instance of can- nibalism, which I have just witnessed, has induced me to communicate the particulars to you, in order to convince those ultra-philanthropists of their error, who either deny the fact, or argue the im- possibility of the "harmless, and innocent ab-   origines" being guilty of such atrocities. Having been absent from home on the 2nd inst., I was informed, on my return, by the shepherd, that a native woman had given birth to an infant;   and that, as the evening was cold, he had given her some warm tea, but that she'did not seem to care much about it. Shortly after the other shep- herd came, and told me that on his return to the station with the sheep, he heard the blacks call out to him. On his approach to the miamis, he found a new-born infant, which the mother and another woman r...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 9 October 1847

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. {From our Öorrespondent.J Saturday, October 2.- Thomas Keane ap- peared at the Police-office, before Dr. Dorsey and Arthur Hodgson, Esq., to answer the complaint of Mr. J. C. Pearce, for refusing to return to his employment.' It was supposed that the prisoner, who is a wooden-legged man, had, while at the station, broken his ''timber understanding" for the purpose of getting away, and had, therefore, to be sent to Ipswich on a dray to procure a new leg-having done so, and received a considerable   advance, he conceived atrip to Sydney would be far more pleasant than returning to the station - their Worships, therefore, iudulged him with three   months' recreation in improving the ways of the   good folks of Sydney. A slight difficulty oc-   curred as to the mode of forwarding the prisoner to Brisbane, for the purpose of proceeding to Sydney to undergo his punishment, but the ready and fertile inventi...

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 16 October 1847

SOUTH AUSTRALIA. We have received files of Adelaide papers to the 8th of September. - On the 27th August there was a sale of land (including five small allotments in the townships of Robe and Grey) which averaged something more than 25s. 3d. per acre, the highest price given being £3 15s. 9d. per acre by Messrs. Dawe and Polkinghorne for a section containing a valu- able slate quarry. Some of the lots were de- scribed as situate in mineral districts, and several of the leadiag mining proprietors of the province were present ; but in respect of these lands there was very little appearance of competition. 1652 acres were sold, and realised £2088 7s. ^ < A correspondent informs us that on the district of Mount Gambier they have had continual rain for the last month. The blacks are quite audaci- ous. They have lately speared some of Mr. Daven- port's cattle, and threatened to set fire to the huts on the station. One flourished a spear at Mr. Sturt, and another threw one at Mr...

MASTER AND SERVANTS ACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 16 October 1847

MASTER AND SERVANTS ACT. By the amended and consolidated " Master and Servants' Act," parties are liable to punishment who barbour servants in the employment of others, engaged without the colony. By the same en- actment, females are not to be imprisoned, and all natives of uncivilised tribes, either in these colo- nies, or .of the Islands of the Pacific and South Seas, are to be exempt from the operations of the law; thus taking from the importers and em- ployers of Hebridian savages the only effectual controul they could expect to have over their in- dolent and wandering serfs. We append at length the clauses bearing upon the points enumerated : HI. And whereas it was recited by the said Act, among other things, " that servants in the United Kingdom, iii British Colonies, in the british East Indian Possessions, and iu Foreign Countries, occasionally*contract, by indenture or other written agreement, with persons about to proceed to, or, actually resident in, New South Wales ;" And...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 16 October 1847

PORT PHILLIP. Bï the steamer we have received Port Phillip papers to the 21 st Sept. The following extracts will be found interesting : Disease in Sheep.-On Thursday last, the superintendent of Mr. Niele Black arrived in Gee- long,*1 on his way to Melbourne, to inform Mr. Black that a disease of the lungs had broken out ?amongst his sheep, of so violent a nature, that upwards of 700 had died in a few days. Our in- formant was not sufficiently acquainted'with the -disease to enable him to describe its exact nature ; but, from what toe could gather, it appears in its effects to resemble the cholera m the human being, which' rças described by the celebiated French physician Du Puitren, as beginning where other diseases L ended - namely, in death. - Corio Chronicle. Bushmen.-An instance of the reckless and profuse liberality with which these men squander .away their money, after coming off a long cruise in the bush, occurred last week in a public-house in this town. A worthy " blue flan...

VAN DIÉMEN'S LAND. Oua files of Van Diemen's Land papers extend lo the 18th Sept. The following are the only items of interest we can make room for : Hobart Town Markets, September 17.-We have ascertained that, at the principal stores and millers, the price of wheat is uniformly firm at 5s. per bushel, and flour £12 per ton. The bakers are still selling the 21b. loaf best bread1 at 2£d., in consequence of competition, but which, wc learn, at the present prices of wheat and .flour, can be yielding no profit.

EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 16 October 1847

EXTRACTS. OPERATION ON A MARE WHILST UNDER THE Influence of So lphuric Ether.-Mr. Alexander Lawson,'Veteiinary surgeon, of this town (formerly of Glasgow,) performed an operation on a mare on Saturday last, on his premises, in Bradshaw-gate, in the presence of several medical gentlemen and a number oF his friends, of which the following was the result. The operation to be performed was what is technically called " Neurotomy," or dividing the ,nerve on each side of the leg at a point above where it branches to the fetlock joint, and foot ; and is, of course, both a painful ope- ration and one requiring a thorough knowledge of the anatomy of the parts. Mr. Lawson having procured an apparatus, similar to that which is used dt the Royal Feterinmy College, at 17 minutes past four p.m., fixed it to the pony's head, but as it did not fit sufficiently tight, and the animal plunged violently, the ether bladder was several times detached from the nose-bag, and a quantity of atmospheric air wa...

THE [?]oreton [?]ap Courier. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 16, 1847. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 16 October 1847

THE ,- . o reto h 33 a ii Convier. 'SATURDAY, OCTOBER 16^ 1847, Returning to the question regarding the introduction of Indian labourers into the colony, we conceive that a strong pt ima facie case has been made out as to its ¿expediency. We have shown that «ven should extensive emigration take place from the mother country to the amount 4>f twenty thousand persons, the propor- tion to be landed in this district will not be sufficient to meet the/demand; and that,unless the stockholders make extra- ordinary exertions to procure servants from Asia, the present annoying state of things will continue, the prosperity of the colony be retarded, and squatting soon cease to he followed as a profitable occupation, i \Vith regard to the means to be adopted to procure the (description of labour we have recommended, the following plan suggested by an intelligent correspondent -of one of the Sydney papers is worthy of attention. He says :/ There is nothing very novel or ingenious in the plan...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent.)       In consequence of the detention which the Tamar experienced some short time back, the mails for Ipswich and the Downs have been thrown back a week, which has been productive of great incon- venience to persons in business here, and the in- habitants are very desirous that the steamer should miss a week, in order that her old days of sailing might be appointed. All the Ipswich letters (save one) forwarded by last post have been mis-sent to the Darling Downs from Brisbane. I refrain from making any com- ment on the subject for the present, trusting that this hint will suffice for the parties in fault, and prevent a recurrence of the case. The wise men (?) of our village have been somewhat taken aback lately by the departure of a "Bolter," a knight of the cleaver, who came amongst us looking more rueful than the famed knight of La Mancha himself, and with pockets quite as empty ; but ...

IMMIGRATION AND DR. LANG. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 23 October 1847

IMMIGRATION AND DR. LANG. {From the Sydney Morning Herald. J In the Melbourne Argus of September 24th appears a letter addressed to the Edi- tor from x Dr. Lang, in which a detailed account of the Doctor's proceedings in .? Great Britain in the cause of immigration is contained. The Doctor states that his first step when he arrived in Great Britain was to issue printed prospectuses for the establishment of a company or association for the promotion of immigration to Port 1 Phillip, as well for tne north-eastern as for the south-western portions) of the pro- vince, early in the present year. The principle put forth in these remarks was That a certain extent of land should be pur- chased progressively at the present minimum price, in certain localities, and that price paid, one-half in defraying the cost of the emigration of suitable persons, and the other in certain improvements on the land calculated greatly to improve its value, and to facilitate the settlement of the emigrants.
