LATEST FROM LONDON. THE NIGGERS' PROTECTION ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 November 1847

LATEST FROM LONDON. THE NIGGERS* PROTECTION ASSOCIATION. BY the .¿Erial Machine's Mail we have received à report of the proceedings of the atove-named'So ciety at their last meeting in London, Mr. Alder- man Tallow in the chair. The worthy Alderman briefly explained the objects of the Society;!jwhich were to afford protection and assistance to those persons who incurred the disapprobation of illiberal individuals by shedding human blood. At present the operations of the Society were confined to the Aboriginal Blacks of the British Colonies, but many sensible men were of opinion that the same assistance should be 'extended to white men who were similarly unfortunate. The barbarous slaughter of the celebrated Sa» ney Bean and his family must have often excited the sympathy of his hearers ; and even their own times had wit- nessed a similar sacrifice in the persons of Messrs. Bishop and Williams (hear, hear). That firm had transacted an extensive business in London, and the unfortunate...

EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 November 1847

EXTRACTS. SIEGE OF BRUNSWICK HOUSE.-A lady, named Munden, has recently recovered a judgment against the tiuke of Brunswick, but by reason of the duke keeping strict watch and ward over every entrance to his abode, the sheriff's officers were for some time unable to effect a levy. On Saturday morning week, however, about seven o'clock, Sloman, the officer who held the writ of execution, succeeded in effecting an entrance into the,duke's house by forcing himself in at the time the door was opened to admit some other officer to see the duke. The officer, however, was almost instantaneously ejected by the host of men em- ployed in the duke's service (about fifteen in num- ber , he nota keeping anytfemale, servant). The officer, however, having once been in possession and forcibly ejected, was entitled to effect an en- trance in any possible way. Just as the officer had been thus unceremoniously ejected, the plain- tiff's attorney, Mr. Townshend, arrived, and he and the officer, in spite...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 13 November 1847

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. IPSWICH. (From our Correspondent.)   THE following report has been necessarily abridged, as we did not receive it until our columns were ready for press.     On the 10th instant, an investigation touching the death of Mrs. Minor, which took place sud- denly, on Tuesday last, was held before Drs. Simpson and Dorsey, in consequence of a report which had been circulated that her death had been occasioned by the ill treatment of her hus- band. The evidence of a witness named Kelly, a neighbour of the deceased, was exculpatory, and the case was dismissed. Mrs. Minor has always borne an irreproachable character, and her loss is to be deplored for the sake of her young family of children, the eldest being only nine years of age.   The town has just been thrown into a state of excitement by the murder of a ticket-of-leave holder, named Henry Caldicott. The unfortunate man shortly after receiving his ticket, about twe...

COLONIZATION. (From the Atlas.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 20 November 1847

COLONIZATION. (From the Atlas.J Loan LINCOLN'S colonization motion was brought forward on Tuesday night. No remarkable re- sults attended it. It miscarried ; for the House was counted out. It was a great question, but forty members of the Legislature could not be found to give ita patient, oran impatient hearing. Now colonisation would seem to be one of the plainest and most intelligible subjects in the world ; but, some how or other, it is one of the most im- practicable. Everybody seems to understand its leading features-the general principles arc re- cognised by all-there are certain propositions whch men are willing to accept from others, and eager to lay down for themselves-but when they come to details, " Some hidden and inexplicable germ Of failure" presents itself, !and old allies become desperate enemies. Let any man of ordinary powers of observatiqn land himself on the shores of one of our colonial possessions. Let him, for example, pay a visit to the Cape of Good Hope. Th...

SWAN RIVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 20 November 1847

SWAN RIVER. The Wave, arrived at Adelaide, brought files of papers from Western Australia to 25th Sep- tember. A proposition had been made to impose an export duty on sandal wood, against which the colonists loudly protested. A public meeting was held, and the arguments adduced convinced the Executive of the impolicy of the measure; whereupon it was abandoned. We may well envy the colony such an Executive. At Hong Kong sandal wood fetches ten dollars per picul ; beche le-mer, first quality, fetches one hundred dollars tper picul. Sharks' fins and tails, the latter the most valuable, sell well at China -Dr. Von Som mor had discovered an extensive coal district at Western Australia.-Five hundred tons of sandal wood had been prepared in the hill country, but the heavy rains had cut up the roads, and there was great difficulty in getting it conveyed to the port. The settlers at King George's Sound were also cutting sandal wood at Kogenup.-Several new vessels had been launched,-The Arpen...
