SUMMARY TO JUNE 24, 1847. (From the Home News.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 23 October 1847

SUMMARY TO JUNE 24, 1847. CFrom the Home News. J We have to chronicle a period of dubious weather, and consequently of uncertain progress. A somewhat gloomy gaiety has surrounded the capital. The Court has fluctuated between Claremont and Town, and its Foreign guests have been enter- tained with Reviews and Operas, Lion- izing, and a Royal Ball. One grand white day of the past quin- zaine is that of Waterloo. It was a day jof* heavy .rain ; and the review-was in consequence postponed. -The banquet kept its place, and the assembly was as inter- esting as ever. To one toast, and its ac- knowledgement, we need hardly call at- tention. We allude to the health of Sir Harry Smith, as proposed by the' Duke of Wellington ; and the hero's thanks to his immortal host. We ought here also to record the offer of their representation in .Parliament made to their gallant towns- man, the " Old Rifleman," by many of the most influential burgesses of Cambridge. The fortnight has been animated by the ...

DR. LEICHHARDT. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 23 October 1847

DR. LEICHHARDT. We are indebted for the following narrative of this enterprising traveller to the Sydney Morning Herald of the 11th instant :— An account of a journey to the westward of the Darling Downs, undertaken with the view of ex-   amining the country between Sir Thomas Mit-     chell's tract and my own.         I started from Mr. H. S. Russell's station on the 9th of August last, accompanied by Mr. F. N. Isaacs, Mr. Bunce, Mr. Perry, and my blackfellow. We followed the dray track of Mr. Gogg's sheep station, at the head of Acacia Creek, which is a tributary of Dogwood Creek. On the 15th we travelled down Acacia Creek about twelve miles W.N.W. ; on the 18th we made Dogwood Creek at my old crossing place, in latitude 26.24, and continued for about ten miles N.W. by W., follow- ing a small creek up to its head, and coming to water courses belonging to another creek, which   I...

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 23 October 1847

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier.   Sir, - As you appear to have taken your stand by the cause of Coolie immigration to this colony, I cannot forbear to raise a feeble voice against the cause which you advocate so strongly. Although   no squatter myself, I am fully sensible of the great importance of that body of colonists to the colony generally, and I must of course admit that from their exertions spring the main source of our prosperity. But although, for that reason, the interests of the squatters should be supported, I cannot agree that the wishes of other colonists should be entirely, disregarded. The major portion of the graziers cannot be considered as permanent settlers ; when they have succeeded in the object of their toils and struggles, and have secured the independence for which they sought these shores, many of them will return to their native soils to enjoy it. No person can reasonably dispute their right to spend, in any way they ple...

NEW ZEALAND. Our files of papers from New Zealand not having come to hand, we are indebted to Hie Sydney Herald Sor the following items of intelligence to the 25th ult. : The natives were quiet, but had given notice of their intention to re-commence hostilities in a few weeks. i% A singular petition from the woiking men' of Wellington had been presented to Üeiítcnant Governor Eyre: it sets forth that a large number of them were unable to obtain employment at re- munerating wages, and prayed that natives might not be employed on the roads. His Excellency in' his reply declines to accede to their request re- specting the natives, and recommends the petition- ers not to hold out for high wages, but accept lower* rates than they have been in the habit of demanding. As there are so ,many vessels at present employed in conveying stock from Sydney to New Zealand, could not some arrangement be made by which a few hundreds of those persons, who are dissatisfied with their present lot, could ...

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1847. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 30 October 1847

'Î&OTttûW THE Ban Couiícr. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1847. It is possible .that the reports recently linage by Dr. Leichhardt and other gen- tlemen who have travelled in the direction ?of Sir Thomas Mitchell's track, may upon some minds have an effect unfavourable to this district. The probability that Fitz Roy Downs do not afford the immense field for grazing which was anticipated may appear to detract from the character of Moreton Bay as the port of shipment for a large extent of country. The cur- sory examinations which Dr, Leichhardt and Mr. Coxen had time to make must have left much fine country undiscovered, ¡but we are content, for the present, to take the land ,they saw as a fair sample of the whole in that direction, and to íest our claim to extent of grazing territory upon what we knew before of the interior and the coast country. Without descend- ing the Condamine to that point where it becomes identical with the Balonne of Mitchell, we will take a narrow belt of the ...

EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 30 October 1847

EXTRACTS. Earl Grey.-If we have not lately noticed the Colonial Office, our silence has been attributable neither to diminishing regard for the colonists nor to inattention to the home administration of their affairs. Wè liave been anxious that Lord Grey should have a fair trialln the office ; we watched the .earlier portion of the period, he has presided over the colonies with hope; and, conscious of what many will doubtless teçm strong political prejudices against his Lord hip, we have remained silent when fears thrust forth hope, le3t our judg- ment might be disturbed by,other grounds of difference, and our apprehensions be premature. But so many of Earl Grey's own party have now expressed their doubts as to his success, that we can no longer have any delicacy in pronouncing an opinion onthis administration. Tbe course we [pursuedjin regard to the Colonial Office when our own friends were in power- the unreserved con- demnation we were compelled to pass on Lor,d Stanley's conduct...

ENGLISH SUMMARY.                 The following closes our summary of British and Foreign news by late arrivals : The British Squadron under Sir William Parker had captured and detained in custody the expedi- tionary forces of the Portuguese rebels under the Count Das Antas. -The war between the United States and Mexico was still proceeding with varied success; though victory was inclining to the Ame- ricans. Both parties had declined the intervention of Britain.-- The remains of Mr. O'Connell was expected,to arrive at either "Plymouth or Bristol, about the 29th June. The Repeal Association had chartered a steamer to proceed from Dublin, in complete mourning, for the purpose of conveying his body to Ireland ; and every preparation was being made for a most magnificent and imposing funeral.

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 30 October 1847

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. The Influenza. - We are informed that this epidemic prevails to a great extent in the town, there being scarcely a single house where it has not been an unwelcome visitant during the last week. The disease appears to affect the children more than the adults, and particularly those of tender age. We have not, however, heard of any case that has terminated fatally. This malady is raging in nearly every part of the Australasian colonies, and the inhabitants of South Australia and Van Diemen's Land have suffered severely. Out of 10,000 inhabitants of Melbourne, it is said that 7000 have been attacked by this disease. The apothecaries, of course, have been kept con- stantly employed compounding prescriptions, and have reaped a rich harvest. A correspondent of one of the South Australian journals, who was long resident in North America, where colds, shiverings, and coughs are prevalent in the spring and fall of the year, gives the following account of his recovery f...
