ORIGINAL POETRY. A CHANCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 30 October 1847

ORIGINAL POETRY. A CHANCE. I want a situation as a shepherd, be it known, ' On a comfdVtable station-not too far from town ; The country must be timberless, the waters full of game, (For 1 like a little shooting), and the blacks ex- tremely tame. * , For -fifty pounds a year with a stranger I shall strive, But I would n't mind engaging with a friend at forty-five ; I'll only take a slender flock,-a hundred ewes or s rams, And cannot treat with any man who basely counts his lambs. My ration must be varied with poultry, soup, and fish, And to my table carried at whatever time I wish : Then-if the tea is gunpowder, the water filter'd clear, And the sugar English loaf-why, I'll dispense with bottled beer. My hut must be of weather-boards, and kept in good repair, I must decline the task myself of patching here and there ; For when a man brings home his flock, 'twould be a sorry joke To waste the time that Providence intended for a smoke. I can't suppose a civilised employer will neglect...

ul *T0 W. M. DORSEY, ESQ., J.P., IPSWICH. ' | ] Sir,-I avail myself of the columns of the Courier, to" reply to your remarks, addressed to me from the Bench at Ipswich, on Wednesday last, (after a "conviction in a case of assault, m which I was Complainant), to the effect that my conduct had been improper in sending communications through servants, and that in all cases of dispute-between gentlemen, they should be made personally. I beg to protest against the applicability of the remarks to the case. . .' Had such opinions emanated from the Bench through the chairman, they would have been un- warranted and extra judicial,-proceeding from an individuatyMfgistrate, without reference to his "colleagues^«*' appeared personal and offensive. I doubt if they; were approved by any auditor in the Court-that' they were sanctioned or coun- tenanced by the majority on the Bench, I deny. . The circumstances of our relative position-that we were intimate, and have ceased to be so, should have sug...

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 6 November 1847

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. Our intelligence from the Cape comes down ta the 3rd of July. News of a painful nature, from the frontier, reached Cape Town on the 25th June. A strong body of men which had marched to Sandilla's Post, for the purpose of re-taking some stolen cattle, was repulsed, and the cattle which they had taken vwere nearly all re-captured by the enemy, and the troops (nearly 300 men) were so thickly beset by the Kaffirs, as to be compelled to retire to Blockdrift. Lieut. Russell and a soldier were killed, and seven or eight wounded. The loss on the part of the Kaffirs is supposed to have been large.-A pass is to be opened m the Malonti Mountains, which separate the territory of the Basutos from that of the peaceful and industrious Zooloo Kaffirs, and this means of communication will render the Port of Natal (distant only^OO miles) accessible to the most docile tribes of Southern Africa.-His Excellency, the Governor and High Commissioner has approved of av plan for facilitati...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 6 November 1847

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent.)   October 27.-The first case for trial to day was that of Thomas Cope, ticket-of-leave holder, on suspicion of horse stealing. The circumstances which led to his apprehension was information received of his having, at Mr. John Gammie's station, offered two mares which he had in his possession at a very low figure ; subsequent in- formation strengthened these suspicions, and, through the activity of our Chief Constable, an owner has been found residing at the Downs, who has been subpoened to attend. The only evidence, therefore, heard to-day, was that of a man to whom Cope had offered one of the mares in ex- change for a mule ; the case was consequently remanded for further evidence. Several tribes of the aborigines, amongst whom were Bunya Bunya and Amity Point blacks, have had another fight in this district, hundreds of them having met' on Friday and Saturday last at the Ploughed Station. No lives were lost, tho...

orcton 33 a p Courier. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 13,1847. WE learn from the letters of numerous correspondents who have favoured us with their yiews and opinions on the subject of Indian Immigration, that the feeling throughout the district is decidedly in favour of it j and we have been urged to agitate the question on behalf of the stockholders at large, until matters shall have been ,v finally arranged at the puhlicmeetihg proposed to be held at North Brisbane in the month of January next. With the triumphant result of Mr. Friell's experiment before our eyes, we do not conceive that it is necessary for us to ' enter into the subject at much greater length than we have done heretofore ; we shall, -however, offer a few further observations. We have proved* that European labour 'Cannot be depended upon ; that it is too expensive to leave any hope of profit to the employer ; and that it is not so well adapted to pastoral purposes as Asiatic labour. It must be borne in mind that Jhe stockhol...

INDIAN IMMIGRATION. To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 November 1847

INDIAN IMMIGRATION. 7b the Editor of. the Moreton Bay Courier.* SIR,-Yourucorrespondent, "An .Englishman," (in your journal of the 23rd instant) is at least candid while desirous of opposing: a measure of the utmost importance not only to " the squatters? of the Northern Districts, but to the community at large. ,i He says-" I cannot forbear to raise » feeble voice against the cause you advocate so strongly V, It were superfluous in him to admit that his voice is feeble-his letter sufficiently at- " tests the' fact. It is a pity when feebleness of. in- tellect is unaccompanied by a consistent humility. The question of Indian Immigration in its main features is sufficiently understood by the intelligent " squatters" of these districts-but in pity to " An Englishman/' and those who may think with him* (if there are any here), it may be as well to assure him that it is not the intention of the advocates of Indian Immigration to populate u our villages with New Caledonians and the Cooli...
