The memorial was sent to the Colonial Secretary, and" by him was referred to the Police Magistrate to report' thereon. The report has not been made public,* conse quently we are in the dark respecting any recommendation it may liave contained with regard (o .the amount, that would ?probably be required for the purpose.

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. CANNING DOWNS.       (From our Correspondent. )         BREACHES OF THE MASTER AND SERVANTS' ACT. - At the Police-office, Warwick, on the 3rd inst., Mr. Frederick Bracker was summoned before the Magistrates by Joseph Mandell, a bullock driver,   for the amount of wages due to him, and which the defendant refused to pay on the ground that he did not perform certain work under his imme- diate orders. The plaintiff, however, brought forward proof that the work was performed by   direction of the defendant's storekeeper, and the Bench adjudged Mr. Bracker to pay the claim and costs. - On the same day, a man named Daniel M'Carthy appeared before the Bench to answer tlie complaint of Mr. Hay for disobedience of orders and insolence.

THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY NOVEMBER 27, 1847. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 27 November 1847

jëUrxton TUB ':: Courier. SATURDAY* NOVEMBER 27,1847. IN promising last week to consider in this day's issue the official announcement of Government munificence which we then published, we had a latent misgiving that «here must have been some mistake in the matter ; and subsequent enquiries have justified the postponement of our remarks,. It appear* tqat some score or so of gen- tlemen signed a memorial to His,Excel- lency the Governor, praying that the sum \ of" one "hundred pounds might be appro- priated to the repairs of roads and bridges in this district ; and offering on their part to subscribe an equal amount in further - ' ance of that object. The memorial con- tained also an expression of hope that another hundred pounds wou!dc be given l>y the Government at some undefined future period. The answer to this me- morial is equally creditable to the Colonial Secretary's perception, and characteristic -of the unjust debtor, who produces a re- ceipt for the last item of his acc...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. PUBLIC OPINION AND THE ARMY. (From the Times.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 27 November 1847

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. PUBLIC OPINION AND THE ARMY. (From the Times. J THE Bills lately enacted on military subjects are perhaps the strongest evidence that the present generation has witnessed, of the growth of public opinion and the corresponding increase of its in- fluence. Formerly the people cared for nothing that concerned the army except its diminution or its destruction. It wai regarded as the tool of tyranny or the right hand of coi ruption. It sup- plied food for declamation equally to the jealous patriot and the mercenary grumbler ; to the men whom Walpole would not bribe and Pitt wonld not bridle. The dissatisfaction which it created .did not limit itself to an abstract idea ; but was felt painfully by the soldiers of Whom it was com- posed. The jealousy which forbade the appearance of red coats at certain times and places, was but the constitutional phase of a general apathy ; and >. the sources from which our regiments were re ' cruited were too often such as to increase...

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 27 November 1847

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. SIR,-After the decided opinion pronounced in your leading article of the 13th instant, it is not my intention to offer you any arguments opposed to the statements and conclusions of your corres- pondent " An Anglo-Australian." Upon a fitting occasion it would be as easy to prove, by the tes- timony of many contented Indo-Australians, that they are voluntary settlers A in this colony ; as it would be to'demonstrate the " political reprehen 8Íbi)ity" of the Cou]]«; trade without such testimony. When I addressed to you my letter of the 21 st ultimo, it was in the hope that some person better qualified than myself would come forward in the matter, for I anticipated much difficulty in oppo- sing that which appears to be the wish of a ma- jority in this district ; yet, if " An Anglo-Aus- tralian" is to be their representative, I can have no objection to encounter such a champion ; but he must suggest some impartial means of com- munication, tor yo...

EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 27 November 1847

'EXTRACTS. ,TUE " GREAT, BRIT AIN."-Several large* cases, capable of carrying thirty or forty tons.of sand, or other material, are made, and- in progress of being made, on the strand opposite this noble ship» and a number of baulks are being fitted with large sheaves. The Great Britain has been raised se- veral feet, without any external application,'except , the lifting forward by four large spars and pen chans, and the- tightening of the vessel herself. It was said that the spars and tackle were to have been continued, but this plan appears to have been improved upon since the arriva) of Mr. Bremmer, and Mr. Patterson, the builder of .the ship, the boxes being intended to supersede penchans. Af- ter the ship's bottom has been seen,1 the boxes, it is presumed, are to act as canals, inasmuch as they are bevilled to the form of the pottom, and are in- tended to float her off., iThe foundation of the breakwater is being dug up preparatory to this; which, it is said, will not be attemp...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. an kc (From our Correspondent.)       TUESDAY, Nov. 23.-The annual licensing meet- ing, under the new Act for granting auctioneers' licenses, was held this day, at which Mr. A. E. Campbell obtained a license for the police district of Ipswich. Daniel Weare was brought up on warrant, at the suit of Mr. George Furber, for assaulting him while in his service at Wide Bay, and for abscond- ing from thence subsequently to Mr. Furber be- ing compelled to leave from illness. The Bench   decided on dismissing the case, in consequence of the assault having been committed upwards of three months, and a doubt existing in the minds of their Worships as to the Ipswich Bench having jurisdiction so far as Wide Bay, besides which the original agreement had expired, and a subsequent one, which was merely verbal, having been entered into. Charles Jones pleaded guilty to the charge of assaulting a constable in the execution of h...

"TUE o re t o ri ß a i» ? o ti vp%; ¡W3 I SATURDAY, DECEMBER ,4, 1847, \ IN-the case of EDUCATION as a marketable ^article, the demand has, in no degree, been ^common with the supply, and so different is-it from ¿other commodities, that, where there< ii» the greatest want of it, there is (felt the less need of it. If ignorance and crime are found to be intimately con- nected, as they have in general been found to be, it is the legitimate province of Go- vernment to dry up such a well-spring of evil in the bosom of society, by the widest jpbssible diffusion of knowledge. Uwfor ¿ubately, the great mass of mankind are more ready to cater to the gratification of all' their meaner appetites, than to seek the pure and elevating enjoyment which the cultivation of their nobler nature is «capable of affording. Experience shews, that mankind in general do not feel the vdanger and misery of ignorance, nor "hunger and thirst" after knowledge, *ap. «they do after food and raiment ; an...

COMMERCE WITH THE COLONIES. HOUSE OF LORDS, JULY 1. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 4 December 1847

COMMERCE WITHTHE COLONIES. , HOUSE OF LORDS, JULY I. LORD ASHBURTON, who was scarcely audible in the gallery, we understood to say that he had given notice of a motion for the production of the instructions given to the governors of colonies with respect to the commerce between those colo- nies and the mother country, but as he understood that there would.be no objection to the production of the papers, it would be unnecessary for him to trouble the house with more than a few observa- tions. He did not intend to re-open the question of free trade; but he might say that his own ppinions on that subject were not in the slightest degree altered. He still believed the popular opinion to be erroneous ; however, there was no remedy until after the public should have had full experience of the working of those measures One part of the subject appeared to him of great importance, especially as affecting the manufac- turing interest ; he meant the commerce of this country with her several co...
