EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 4 December 1847

EXTRACTS. A large three-masted vessel constructed at Bre- men has received the name of Beckerath* from the name,<of the liberal deputy of the opposition, in the Prussian Diet. It is about to sail tor South1 Australia, and carries a printing press for a der-' man newspaper, which is to be founded at Adelaide by the German colonists.-BelFs Weekly Afc* senger» June 26. A SINGLE COMBAT AT WATERLOO.-A power- ful Highlander, Lieut. John Stuart, made himself conspicuous by a hand-to-hand encounter, which, had been less active and resolute, must have proved his last. During one of those lulls which occur in all general actions, Stuart and his men lay, in skirmishing order, behind a hedge. About sixty ora hundred yards in front of them, lining in like manner a ditch or hollow, a body of French tirailleurs had taken post, and each party con- tinued for a while to watch without molesting the other. At last a French officer rose out of his own ditch, and either because he really desi...

THE ABORIGINES OF AUSTRALIA. (From Simmons's Colonial Magazine.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 4 December 1847

THE ABORIGINES OF AUSTRALIA. (From Simmons's Colonial Magazine.)   The general prevalence of infanticide is estab- lished beyond any reasonable doubt. The half caste infants appear to be most exposed to this fate. Among many tribes they appear to be regularly murdered, either immediately or very soon after their birth, unless saved by the inter- ference of the whites. The female infants appear in the next degree exposed to this fate. Occa- sionally male and female are despatched alike. According to Mr. Lambie, this practice is un- known in Maneroo.       The unnatural coldness on the part of the mother, that might be expected to accompany such a practice, does not appear to exist as a necessary associate ; at least, there is on occasions no want of maternal feeling, notwithstanding the apparent inconsistency of such a circumstance. The Moreton Bay blacks have a great affection for their children, but, nevertheless, says Mr. Simp- s...

LITERATURE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 4 December 1847

LITERATURE. History of the Conquest of Peru, with à Preli- minary View of the Civilization of the Incas. " by W. H. Prescott, Esq. 2 vols. CFrom -Prater** Magazine. J HISTORY-OF THE CONQUEST OF PERU. Tax history of the Incas, who, in an age of com- parative darkness, were in the enjoyment of all the luxuries of civilized life and absolute power, «hen a handful of foreigners landed upon their shore*, atid by guile and force vanquished them, must be an interesting work, even were the rosnan? tie circumstance» connected with the Spanish in tasioh of South America not taken into account. The government of the Incas, which was a, pure «despotism, is thus described by Mr. Prescott : The sovereign was placed at an immeasurable distance above his subjects. Even the proudest of the Incanobílity, claiming a descent irom the Same divine original as himself, could not venture into the royal presence unless barefoot, and bear- ing a light burden on his shoulders in token of homage.

WIDE BAY. To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 4 December 1847

WIDE BAY. To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. SIR,-Presuming that a few lines relating to the recently settled country in the neighbourhood of Wide Bay will be interesting to your readers, more particularly as you appear not to have been furnished with correspondence from this part of the district, I have ventured to send you a truth-   ful, if not an accurate, account of the doings of our northern pioneers in the march of civilisation, and subjugation of the wilderness to the purposes of man. The many unfounded reports in circu- lation respecting the aggressions of the blacks, and the malicious rumour that all the white men, left to protect Mr. Furber's station during his,   absence, had been massacred, render it impera tively necessary that, such statements should be, confuted as publicly as possible, in order that the public mind may be disabused in this respect. V Siiicê'Mr. Furber's departure forlifmestone the natives have been very quiet, and' h...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS, " A STEAM VESSEL PACKED IN BOXES.-Messrs. filler, Ravenhill, and Co. have just completed, in a novel manner, a beautiful little steamer for the Austrian Government, intended to be employed in the canals of Venice^ and occasionally, in fine weather, on the Adriatic, contiguous to that romantic city. She is of iron, 70 feet long, 12 feet beam, has a rudder at each end, and her in- ternal arrangements were made with an eye to the accommodation of persons of distinction. This vessel was put up in frame in the usual way ; the plates were all prepared and adjusted, thecabins were completed, &c.,and then the whole was taken to pieces, packed in boxes, and put on board a ship bound for Yenice, but now in the East India )Docks. \ CHRISTENINGS.-Now of names.

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 4 December 1847

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. FEARFUL ENCOUNTER WITH A SHARK. — On Tuesday morning last, Mr. James Stewart, mana- ger for the firm of Messrs. Binnie and Co., the saddlers of North Brisbane, accompanied by Mr. Robertson, schoolmaster, proceeded to the bank of the river for the purpose of bathing. Having undressed themselves, Mr. Stewart plunged into the water ; but Mr. Robertson, having a certain misgiving that an accident was about to happen, remained on the bank, and cautioned his com- panion to keep a sharp look out for sharks. Mr. Stewart had only been in the water a few minutes, when he uttered a violent scream, and at the same moment Mr. Robertson observed a large shark, with its belly upwards, rushing to attack him about twenty yards from the side. Mr. Stewart,   conscious of his danger, immediately turned to- wards the bank, when the shark bit him in the thigh, tearing the flesh in a shocking manner. Mr. Robertson, who witnessed the dreadful scene, states that Mr. Stewa...

To the Editor of the Moreton Bay Courier. ?<>> SIR,-In the Moreton Bay Courier of the 4th of December, 1847, appeared a letter headed Wide Bay, and signed J. B. Bertelson, which sets forth that the writer sends you a truthful account of what has occurred in the above district, I now ext act from this publication such parts as I con- ceive to be prejudicial to my character, as follows: " Since . Mr. Furher's departure for Limestone the natives have been very quiet, and have not molested anybody. With regard to the late out- rage committed upon him, Mr. Furher's own men state the reason why the blacks attacked him was because he had failed to provide them with sufli cient rations according to promise, for stripping bark and doing other work for him ; tint in serving out the flour to them it was spread over a large surface to make it appear a greater quan- tity than there was in reality ; at which the blacks were greatly dissatisfied, and which, no doubt, Was the reaso...

NEW ZEALAND. (From the Sydney Morning Herald, Nov. 15.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 11 December 1847

NEW ZEALAND. (From the Sydney Morning Herald, Nov. 15. J PORT NICHOLSON papers to .the 23rd ult. have come to harJd. The native chief Rangihaetea was levying con- ti ibutioiis on all persons travelling along the beach to visit any of the outlying settlements. There does not appear to be much safety for residents who arc beyond the reach of the mus- ketry of the soldiers or the cannon of the ships. H. M. S» Calliope being under orders to leave the station, a highly complimentary address had been presented by the inhabitants of Wellington to Captain Stanley, thanking him for the zeal and activity which he, his officers, an«l men, have dis- played in defending the settlers during the three years the ship has been on the station. Trade appears to be in a flourishing condition. The Inflexible, which arrived yesterday morn- ing, brought Auckland papers to the 6th instant.

THE SANDWICH ISLANDS. a ii J~J KJxi .WE were favoured yesterday with Hawaiian news- papers to the 10th July. The commercial prospects of the residents;.both natives and foreigners, continue to improve, and there is no doubt that in a very few years the trade of the Sandwich islands will be of consider- able importance. There are more whalers touch there than at any port in Polynesia. We have marked a few extracts for insertion, but are obliged, from want of .space, to,postpone 'thvmuntil lo morrow ; but in the mean time bor- row the following summary from the Samoan Reporter : . The progress which the Hawaiian Government and people are making in the adoption of laws, manners, and habits, similar to those of civilised nations, is surprising.
