BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 8 August 1846

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. By a late Gazette we see Sir Charles Fitzroy   has been appointed Governor of New South Wales and its dependencies. We beg to offer a word of advice to this gentleman. It is to deviate as much as possible from the line of policy followed by his two predecessors, and if he wishes to fulfil the im- portant trust confided to his care, with honor [sic] and credit to himself, and to save one of our most pro mising colonies from ruin, let him take a "settler"     by the hand, and raise him up, not "crush" him. New South Wales is a pastoral, nor [sic, recte not] a mercantile country. It is on the success of the emigrant that she is dependent for her prosperity. It is the   emigrant that brings capital to the colony. It is the settler who finds employment for the merchant in the export of wool, and the import of goods necessary for the supply of his establishment. During the government of Sir R. Bourke, th...

[?]E TO TALLOW. (From the Maitland Mercury.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 8 August 1846

ODE TO TALLOW.     ( From the Maitland Mercury.)     Who can forget when Hughes and Hosking fell, What dire mishap commercial men befel ; Bankrupt were all - insolvent every grade, Protested bills dam'd up the stream of trade. Credit was dead, and confidence was gone, Each dealer diddled, and each merchant done.   Our ships dismasted lay in Cockle Bay,   Our seamen starving walked the silent quay.     Commerce neglected pined upon the strand, Her employ here forsook her nerveless hand. At once the price of beef became so low No ox of soul to slaughter now would go ; In dudgeon high he sought his leafy den, Disdaining thus to feed the sons of men. The harmless muttons, as in days of yore, Gave wool for bed and board, but gave no more. No shepherd caroll'd blythely o'er the ground, But sought his hut, and silence reign'd around. The tattered squatters dropt the lantern jaw, And all ...

COLONIAL ABSTRACT. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 8 August 1846

COLONIAL ABSTRACT. An imported sheep from the county of Kent, which had unfortunately been killed by the dogs, was melted down at Messrs. Watson and Wright's, establishment, in the Swamp, near Melbourne,and yielded sixty pounds of tallow, which, with seven pounds of wool taken from the skin, made the net produce of the animal amount to twenty-three shillings. - The contract for the improvement of the harbour at Port Fairy, by the construction of a breakwater, had been taken at the sum of £5000. - Fossil remains of an extinct race of animals, apparently a gigantic species of the kangaroo, had been discovered in the neighbourhood of Geelong. - Among the Bills to be proposed to the Legislature of Van Diemen's Land during the present session, is one to restrain the practice of kangaroo-hunting, by which great damage has been done to flocks. No person is to hunt kangaroo except on his own ground, without obtaining a yearly license fee of £1, uuder penalty of a fine of £10, or imprison- m...

TRADE AND TRAVELS IN THE FAR EAST. (From the London Atlas.)   Trade and Travels in the Far East ; or recol-   lections of twenty-one years passed in Java, Singapore, Australia, and China. By G. F. Davidson. Madden and Malcolm. London, 1846.   Mr. Davidson spent three years in New South Wales, where he renovated his health, but left it detrimented in purse. He arrived at Port Jackson, pending the late prosperity-mania, and Was tempted by the rising prices of wool and mutton to specu- late largely in sheep-farming. The revulsion that followed this mad spurt seems to have staggered him, and he deals out some cloudy political eco- nomy on the sudden recoil and heart-heartedness [sic, recte hard-heartedness] of the Sydney bankers. Mr. Davidson forgets that there is a time for all things, and that in all speculative movements, either in England or Aus- tralia, the time must inevitably arrive when the monied class, both for their own sakes, and the se...

LIMESTONE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 8 August 1846

LIMESTONE. The appearance of Ipswich has been considerably improved during the last twelve months ; and at this moment there are built, and in progress of building, many substantial houses, and a number of comfortable cottages ; in fact, it has now as- sumed many of the characteristics of an established town. The land in the neighbourhood is of the best description, but Government have hitherto demanded such an enormous price for it, that only a small quantity has been purchased. The inha- bitants complain loudly that they have not been afforded sufficient facility for buying suburban allotments, which circumstance, they state, has materially retarded the progress of cultivation, and hindered the extension of the town. This incon- venience, we believe, will shortly be remedied, as we have learned that a land sale will take place in a few months, and that a considerable quantity of land about- Ipswich will be immediately surveyed prior to being either sold, or occupied under license....

MR. CAUDLE'S BREAKFAST TALK. Showing how Caudle has brought home a Newfoundland Dog, insisting that "the poor animal can't add to the expense." [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 8 August 1846

MR. CAUDLE'S BREAKFAST TALK. , Showing how Caudle has brought home a New- foundland Dog, insisting that " the poor animal can't add to the expense." " Oh, no ! I know what the objection is, Mrs. Caudle. It isn't that the poor faithful animal will add to the butcher's bill-not a Lit of it. No : it is only because the creature is food of me, that you object to it. 'Tis only because of its love for its master-and it's well I can get somebody about the house that does love me-that you make an excuse of the expense. You can keep your canary bird-that's rattling away all day like a whistle in hysterics-and I never complain of the ex pense of that. You can keep your half-a-dozen gold fish too, and do I ever murmur at what they cost ? I think not. And yet when 1 bring home a dog-a fine fellow as high as the table-instead of admiring the noble animal as any other wife would do, you begin to talk about what it will eat! But that's like you, Mrs. Caudle : that's the rock we've always split upo...

LATEST COLONIAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 8 August 1846

LATEST COLONIAL NEWS.   Fancy Ball.-We understand that the femi- nine citizens of fair Sydney are at length to have their wishes consummated, and are again to assert the power of their charms at " a Mayor's fancy ball." The theatre was refused by the proprietors for such a purpose, and we have been informed that a building adjoining Mr. Cooper's distillery is being fitted up for the occasion, and that it will afford every convenience and accommodation for a " fancy affair" on the grandest scale. All the choice spirits of Sydney will doubtless receive cards, nor will they, when they assume their cha- racteristic dresses, be the first spirits in disguise that have passed both in and out of the building. -Sydney Morning Herald, July 30. Result of Sales.-Mr. Mort sold on Saturday, the 13th ultimo, by auction, one milch cow, for £1 5s. ; eight horses, at from £ 7 5s. to £20 per head ; GO trusses compressed hay, at £7 10s. per ton ; twenty-four bales wool, at 1s..3 1/2 d. per...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 8 August 1846

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Labour.—We understand that the unfortunate seamen who were shipwrecked in the Dundee Merchant, will be happy to enter into engage- ments to proceed up the country, should any of the settlers feel disposed to employ them. There are several capital shearers amongst them, and we have no doubt, when the circumstances become known through the medium of this journal, they will readily obtain the employment they seek. THE NEW ROAD. — The two men who left Brisbane last week in search of a new line of road from Messrs. Ferriter and Uhr's station, have returned. They state that it is quite practicable to take wool-teams over D'Aquilar's Range, and that the journey can be easily accomplished in two days. The only difficulty that opposes itself to the formation of the new line of road, is a thick brush, about a mile in length, which, how- ever, can be easily cleared the necessary width, to allow the drays to pass, at little expense. We understand that two competent judges wi...

A CONTRAST. The Revenues and Expenditure of England and France. By the Baron Charles Dupin. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 15 August 1846

A CONTRAST. The Revenues and Expenditure of England and France. By the Baron Charles Dupin.   In 1816 the British Government, in perfect peace, victorious, and tranquil, spent £86,000,000 sterling, no part of which was applied to the ex- tinction of the national debt. In 1824 its expenditure still exceeded £67,000,000. In 1844, the latest periods to which the accounts have been completed, its expenditure was reduced to £55,000,000. In 1816 the interest of the national debt amounted to £33,700,010; it is now reduced to £26,000,000 and £4,000,000 of temporary annui-   ties, which are gradually disappearing year by year. While Great Britain was obtaining these splendid results, she was effecting a vast reform in the manner and extent of her public burdens. Between 1815 and 1841, a balance being struck t between taxes increased and taxes diminished, this' power has abolished an amount of £24,000,000 of taxation, and last year has suppressed a further sum of £6,...

MR. CAUDLE'S BREAKFAST TALK. Showing how Caudle thought " that bill" settled a long time ago. " If now I were to leave you, Mrs. Caudle-if I were to do what I really ought to do as a hus- band-break up the establishment and go myself into chambers, just giving you enough to live upon--of course, the world-the world that never can judge between man and wife, but always will poke its nose in between 'em whenever they sepa- rate-the world, I've no doubt, would begin to abuse me.

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, AUGUST 15, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 15 August 1846

THE Moreton Bay Courier.                 SATURDAY, AUGUST 15, 1846. Improvements in penal science-the best means of reforming her criminals, must ever form a moot-point in England's po- lity. Human nature, human frailties, preclude any defined, abstract system, which will alike apply and succeed in every phase and condition of society. In the body politic, as in the body corporate, the best physician is he who aims at pre- vention rather than cure-who seeks not so much to magnify the terrors of the law, as to elevate the character of the people. The schoolmaster must, in truth, occupy that place in the estimation of the state which is too often assigned to mere physical instruments ; harsh and cruel legislation, which by brutalising educes greater ills than it avails to check, nor dungeons, nor the lash, arrest the progress of crime half as successfully as the sim- ple and easy el...

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. By the arrival of the Carysfort, English news to the 8th of April has been received in Sydney. CORN LAWS.--On. the morning of the 28th March, the second reading of the Corn Law Bill   was carried in the House of Commons by a majority of 88.-Ayes, 337 ; Noes, 240.

The path from the landing place, through the Domain to Govern- ment House, was lined with the military ; and in spite of the gloominess of the weather, which was most unpropitious, a vast concourse of persons assembled, all anxious to catch a glimpse of him into whose hands Her Majesty has entrusted the reins of government in this part of her Majesty's dominions. We scarcely remember to have seen so many persons of all classes congregated to- gether in Sydney as on this occasion. Shortly after twelve o'clock, a salute from the Fort Phillip Battery announced that his Excellency had landed At the Quay, ...
