PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 18 December 1847

PORT. PHILLIP. THE following completes our summary of news from late files : MURDER OF THE CAPTIVE " WHITE WOMAN' AT GIPPS LAND.--Intelligence reached town this afternoon of the discovery of the remains of a white female and child, at a place called Jemmy's Point, situated on the bank of one of the Gipps Land lakes, and about four miles from the resi- dence of Mr. Tyers. There can be no doubt that this is the unfortunate woman whom the generous public of the province have already endeavoured to rescue, from her wretched and horrible fate; in   whose aid two expeditions were started, but un- successful. This is the victim of savage captivity and violence in whose behalf we often had the melancholy pleasure of appealing to the sympathies of the benevolent public, for which we were treated to a due share of the spiteful malignity of one of our contemporaries, who in the month of April last actually stilled all the finer feelings oí human nature, and to wreak his small veng...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 18 December 1847

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. Woov.-IMPORTAXT TO SHIP-OWNERS.-We are informed that there are. now 600 bales of this season's clip in the township ready for shipment, 27ti of which are in the Company's Stores, the re- mainder being in the hands of private store- keepers, who have received instructions from their principals to forward them by sailing vessels. Owing to the favourable season, the clip has been secured much earlier than last year: and, of com se, as every one is anxious to get his wool down to Sydney as soon as possible, there is every probability that a large quantity will have to re- main in the stores some time for want of vessels to take it away with the requisite dispatch. We pre- sume that the agents for the sailing crafts will take active measures to procure vessels of sufficient tonnage immediately, and tiiat they will apprise parties in Sydney of the freights now oUcring for their vessels. WILFUL DAMAGE.-At the Police-office, on Wednesday week, a vixenish-looking woman...

EXPORT MARKET. (From the Sydney Morning Herald, Dec. 11.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 25 December 1847

The wools from the Hunter are in worse con« dition than they have been for many years. Owing, to the scarcity of water, many large flocks have been shorn in the grease, and the very dry winter has caused the average weight of the fleece to be a quarter of a pound less than ki*-t year, except where parties have delayed the shearing for a longer period than usual. From the Bathurst and Wellington counties the wash has been decidedly better than usual, and the wool stronger. The quality appears to be depre- ciating from the different crosses of coarse sheep t...

SHOCKING CATASTROPHE.—DEATH OF LADY MARY FITZ ROY, AND LIEUT. MASTER, A.D.C. (From the Australian, December 14.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 25 December 1847

SHOCKING CATASTROPHE. - DEATH OF LADY MARY FITZ ROY, AND LIEUT. MASTER, A.D.C. | (From the Australian, December 14.)     With sentiments of the deepest commiseration, we are called upon to record one of the most ap Îtailing tragedies that ever harrowed the colonial icart-the untimely and shocking deaths of Lady Mary Fitz Roy, and Lieut. Master, Aide-de-Camp to His Excellency the Governor. At an early hour on Tuesday last, rumours of this terrible catastrophe were rife in town, but the inability to trace the conflicting details to any satisfactory source, led to the fond hope that the calamity had been greatly exaggerated, and kept the citizens in anxious suspense, until the arrival of the six-o'clock steamer from Parramatta realized, our worst and saddest fears. By that vessel, and from an unquestionable source-Sergeant Thyne, of the 99th Regiment,1 witness of the deplorable accident-we ascertained the following particulars :- I Between ten and eleven o'clo...

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. LATE ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 25 December 1847

BRITISH AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE. LATE ENGLISH NEWS. By the Despatch, .arrived from Batavia at Port Phillip, we have been put in possession of English news to the 24th August. We are indebted to our contemporaries for the following summary : The elections were over, and the Tory interest appears to have had the best pi* it. We observe that Mr.< Maeauley, the .celebrated member .for Edinburgh has been unseated, and also Mr. Hawes, the Under »Secretary of State for the Colonies ; Mr. Roebuck has lost his seat for Bath, and Mr. Wyse, another Cabinet Minister is also out of Pailiament, and worst of all'Sir John Cam Hob- house, the President of the Board of Control,.has been, beat .in Nottingham by Mr. Feargus O'Connor. The Queen's visit to, Scotland was a grand affair, such as has perhaps never before been witnessed^ ' i Jenny Lind was still driving the people crazy, and was about to visit Edinburgh. The most extraordinary glut has succeeded the famine at home; wheat has fall...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 25 December 1847

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. Narrow Escape.- Mr. Hexton, the pilot, narrowly escaped losing his life on Saturday morning last, in consequence of the upsetting of   his boat on the south spit, at the Amity entrance into the Bay. He had that morning taken the Jane over the bar, and was returning round the south spit, when one of the broken seas struck the boat, and turned her bottom upwards. Mr. Hex- ton,and two persons, named Joseph Hughes and James King, clung to the keel, while the two aborigines, who formed part of the crew, swam to the shore. They shortly afterwards fell in with Captain Freeman, who, on being made acquainted with the accident, immediately proceeded in his own boat to render assistance. On reaching the place where the mishap occurred, Mr. Hexton and the other poor fellows were rescued from.their perilous situation ; they were in a very exhausted state, having been in the water upwards of four   hours. The oars, mast, and sails belonging to the ...

THE jHoveton fíat» Courier. re¿ tal in( SATURDAY, JANUARY 1, 1818. ,,|tim Our first duty, in introducing the Courier to the public at the commencement of the new year, is to return thanks to our nu- merous subscribers, encouraged by whose kind promises of support we are enabled to enlarge the paper. The great increase m the number of advertisements during the last few weeks rendered this step ne- cessary, as we were frequently compelled to exclude a good deal of interesting local intelligence to make room for them ; our readers were thus deprived of their share of readable matter in the shape of news. The favour with which the journal has been received, and the extent to which it has been circulated, justify the belief that the Proprietor may enjoy the pride and honour of its still wider diffusion, coupled with increased personal emolu- ment. Whether we succeed in our wishes, avery brief space of time will satisfactorily determine. We throw ourselves on the good sense of the people ...

The toils of day had pass'd aw ay, z ' Our proofs had gone to press, - í All weary on our couch we lay s' In virgin loneliness: We had heard the chimes of vanish'd times Ring on our fancy's ear- ' ' And the lonely knell of the passing bell Which .toll'd for the dying year, j * WethoUghtof the breath-nowquench'd in death .That;haâiwèlcoin'd the"la<5t year in»î ' .

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 1 January 1848

PORT PHILLIP. We have received files of Port Phillip papers to the 4th December, from which we extract the following items of intelligence : Native Murders.-A rush of a tribe of natives from the plains, was made upon the station of Mr. Allen, on the Hopkins,at midnight, very recently, by which three domesticated blasks were inhu- manly killed, and two wounded. Information was immediately despatched to the police at Belfast, when the Clerk of the Bench proceeded to the scene of slaughter, and examined the bodies. Beyond this the Bench has declined to interfere, and though Mr. Allen is threatened with the des- truction of his establishment by the same hostile natives, no-help can be afforded that gentlpman from the Belfast force. This requires looking into.-Portlfind Guardian. Wages.-The settlers are now offering to bush servants £26 per annum, which these independent gentlemen stubbornly refuse to take, asking and' holding out for £30. Such a demand as this will not be acceded to, th...

VARIETIES. MADEMOISELLE JENNY LIND; The Dumfries Courier gives the following as " not from Punch .." A friend in visiting a private party the other evening was amused to find that the conversation had been turned, and was still running, almost entirely on Jenny Lind. One old lady said em- phatically, " Were I twenty years younger, I would go to London, were it for no other purpose than to see and hear her, now that the railroads have made the journey so quick, easy, and the expense a perfect trifle compared to my youth, A well dressed young gentleman at a ball, in whisking about the room, ran his head against a young lady. He began to apologise. " Not a word, sir ; it is not hard enough to hurt anybody." It is said that a young lady who greatly ad- mires General Taylor's epistolary style, lately re- ceived a letter from a sweetheart inquiring if she would have him, and that she immediately replied, in the language of her hero's answer to Santa Anna, " Come and take mc."-American pap...
