THE Moreton Bay Courier. SATURDAY, JANUARY 22, 1848. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 January 1848

¿Moreton 33 a » Courier. SATURDAY, JANUARY 22, 1848. We have devoted so much of our space to the report of the meeting.on the all-im- portant subject of Indian Immigration, that we have little room left for what is usually termed the leading article. We shall therefore confine ourselves in this day's issue to a bare notice of the leading topics of political interest. It seems that we are to I^e a New Constitution, according to the íecently published dispatch of Earl Grey, and that Van Diemen's Land, South Australia, and New Zealand are also to be repiesented by an Upper and Lower House of As- sembly, with a Central Government, which will probably be established in Sydney. Fort Phillip is to be separated from New South Wales, and is to be designated ViCToniA. It is rumoured that Mr. Deas Thomson will be the first Lieutenant Governor of the new province. We hope and trust that the news of his appoint- ment may turn out to be correct. We must defer our comments on these highly importan...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 January 1848

VARIETIES. Macintosh bustles seem to have become a neces- sary appendage to female attire, as we observe In the Live) pool Times, that a young lady plumped into the Mersey, and floated down the river for the distance of twenty yards-swimming like a " duck" (as dear duck, no doubt she was), until taken up by boatmen. Several amusing instances of the liberality of certain classes of members to the letter-writers for the public press in New Yoik, Boston, &c, have been recoided, and one at least is worth repeating. A tall, awkward, coarse-looking man, who might have sat for the portrait of the " Raw Western Member," stepped up one day to a reporter's desk, and, pulling out a leathern purse, very long and very lan,k, thus addressed the man of letters : I'm come to settle with you for that speech which you done up for me last week-the speech on the bloody banks." " Oh .' yes-I recollect-the re- port was made in extenso, at your request, Sir." " Yes, I axed it jist so-and,it was do...

ENGLISH NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 January 1848

ENGLISH NEWS. MONEY .MARKET.-The money market has been ' somewhat easier during the _weck. On Thursday the Bank did not, as some persons expected, re ,duee the rate of discounts on bills generally, but an intimation was made by the Bank directors that money could be advanced on Stock at 5 per cent, during the closing of the books for the October dividends. As this is regarded as an earnest of an easier state of matters, the effect has been to improve the price of Consols. There has also been some improvement in the price of railway shares, with a better tone in the market than has been observed for a considerable iimc» past. Observer, September 9. EMIGRATION AND. STEAM TO AUSTRALIA. Before quitting commercial matters it may. not be irrelevant to saya word or, two in reference to the condition of some of our colonies, those,of Au- stralia in particular.

(From the Illustrated London News, Sept. 4.) [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 January 1848

(From the Illustrated London News, Sept. 4.) THE BANK OF ENGLAND.-On Tuesday, there was an election of a new Governor of the Bank of England, in the place of Mr. W. R. Robinson. There was no opposition, and, of course, Mr. Morris, the only candidate, being the party chosen. The Scotch-Bench of Bishops has lost one of its members. Dr. Moir, Diocesan of Brechin, a gentleman of much amiability, died last week. He was ordained fifty years ago, and consecrated in 1837. The gross amount of the recent failures in the Corn Trade has been stated at somewhat over three millions ; it is, however, believed that it will be found to approach nearer five millions. There have been three failures in Liverpool during the week ; two in the corn and one in the East India trade. They are not for large amounts, although all highly i espectable. The house of Messrs. Fitzpatrick and Co., is for about £60,000, and that of Messrs Gregg, £30,000. The East India house is for £60,000, and will, it is said, pay ...

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. PUBLIC MEETING.—INDIAN LABOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Moreton Bay Courier — 22 January 1848

DOMESTIC INTELLIGENCE. PUBLIC MEETING.-INDIAN LABOUR. ON Monday the 17th instant, pursuant to notice a meeting of Stockholders and other employers of labour in the Moreton Bay and Darling Downs districts was held at the Caledonian Hotel, in North Brisbane. The attendance, though not numerous, was highly respectable, and had it not been for the very unfavourable state of the weather, there is no doubt it would have comprised many more gentlemen who were, in consequence of the bad state of the roads, and the flooded creeks, prevented from being present and taking part in the pro- ceedings. Many of the squatters also had not finished shearing in time to he present, while one or two, rather than be absent, rode upwards of two hundred miles to attend the meeting. On the motion of Mr. D. Forbes, seconded by Mr. A. S. Lyon, Mr. James C. Crawford was called upon to preside. The CHAIRMAN in opening the proceedings ex- pressed a hope that as the introduction of Indian labourers was a question...

tAN DIEMEN'S LAND. ¡WE have received copies of the Holart Town Ad* vertuer to the- 24th December, from which-yye make the following extracts :- 'n' < i , THE RcnhÍNED ABORIGINALS.-In our last we spoke of the natives'and their position, ^e had hoped that pur prognostics of evil from their re- moval might not be realised; that they had been so tamed that they could be easily restrained from mischief; and that they yvould teel that restraint lightly. We had begun to hope this, but it was against conviction. We regret to say that our hope has been fallacious ; our former conviction' correct. Already have they and their dogs begun to commit depredations upon the settlers in* the vicinity. One his had a goat killed, another a cow,'and a third several sheep. It is not to be supposed that the settlers in the neighbourhood will long'submit to such depredations. They may for once'or twice complain.
