(Another Account.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 14 October 1824
(another Account.) &nbsp; The Government pilot came on board and remained, but the &nbsp; tide not answering, he sent the despatches ashore. The pilot &nbsp; boat returned when the tide answered. As soon as it got along side all the men in her jumped on deck and took forcible pos- session of the vessel. She had a cargo of flour for Government but not more than fifteen gallons of water. The men sent the pilot and the crew ashore in the pilot-boat, and made off to E. N. E. Richard Kelly, of the Hawkesbury, is the name &nbsp; of the owner. John Wolfit is the master. Value of the goods &nbsp; is estimated at £500 &nbsp; The following is taken from Sir Frederick Henpecker's (Bart.) Notes, during a visit to Egypt, Nubia, the Oasis, Mount Sinai, and Jerusalem, in order to get a view of some giganic statues, which supported the roof of a temple, he was buried alive [for] four hours, and found great difficulty in escaping, because...
SHIP NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 14 October 1824
SHIP NEWS &nbsp; Yesterday sailed the Governor Phillip, captain McFarlane, for the Isle of France On Sunday arrived the colonial schooner Newcastle, belonging &nbsp; to Mr. R. Campbell, jun. from the seal fishery on the coast of New Zealand. She has been absent nearly three months and has brought in about 900 skins, mostly clap manches and wigs. &nbsp; &nbsp; She brings the intelligence that a Yankee Clipper called the Thomas had appeared off that coast, and as she had but very few men in her, it is feared that she may carry off some of the &nbsp; sealing gangs belonging to this Colony, and thus be the means of robbing some of our merchants here of the fruits of their &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; enterprize. We may hourly expect to hear of the arrival at the &nbsp; Derwent of the Deveron, 300 tons; the Princess Charlotte, 400 tons; and Cumberland, 300 tons bur- den, from England. &nbsp; &nbsp; &n...
(From a Correspondent.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 14 October 1824
(From a Correspondent.) &nbsp; &nbsp; We have been informed that the real teak wood, which hitherto, has been supposed to be exclusively indigenous to &nbsp; India, has been discovered growing in this colony, in great abundance. The discovery, which will prove of the utmost im- &nbsp; &nbsp; portanoe to the m0ther country and these colonies, was made on &nbsp; the estate of Claremont, by the proprietor, George Panton, Esq. We have to record an occurrence of a very shocking &nbsp; nature, which took place at the Field of Mars early on Saturday morning the 2d inst. at the house of a respectable settler John Bennet, and by which Mary Bryant lost her life. It appeared in evidence before the Coroner's Jury, which was summoned in conse- &nbsp; quence on Saturday morning, that Bennet has re- turned from market on the preceeding Thursday in a &nbsp; state of intoxication, and that he and Mary Bryant had been drinking to...
ENGLISH NEWS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 14 October 1824
ENGLISH NEWS. We have received English Newspapers to the 14th of April.—The following is a summary of the Par- &nbsp; &nbsp; liamentary business from the commencement of the Session to the above date. Some part of it probably is not new to many of our Readers, but we have in- troduced it in this number in order to render this ?? of our intelligence historically complete. There was no amendment moved either in the Lords or Commons to the King's Speech. In pursuance of the promise held out in the speech, a copy of the Con- vention between the Emperor of Austria and the King of England, concluded at Vienna last November, was &nbsp; laid before Parliament. By this document, it appears that the Emperor was to pay two millions and a half &nbsp; &nbsp; sterling in discharge of the Austrian loan, amounting &nbsp; to twenty millions, being about two-and-sixpence in the pound. Notice was taken in both houses of a practice which had crept into so...
THE ISABELLA. (Extract of a private letter dated Port Macquarie, 27th [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 14 October 1824
THE ISABELLA (Extract of a private letter dated Port Macquarie, 27th) &nbsp; This day week a circumstance occurred here which an- &nbsp; noyed us all. About 10 o'clock in the morning the sloop Isa- bella, from Sydney, laden with flour, &c. came off the h[?] the pilots'-boat went to her with the deputy pilot on boa[rd (the] pilot being absent on other duties), and brought on shore let- ters, &c. The sloop came to anchor a little outside the [...] the usual place, until the tide should suit to come into har- bour. In the mean time the boat's-crew, with two added convicts (in all eight in number), proceeded on board, [...] the master and the crew, cut the cable, and proceeded [...] All this was done without the Commandant having it in his [power?] to prevent them, as it blew strong from southward, and [...] not another boat's-crew on whom he could depend. Aft[er pro-] ceeding some miles to sea the runaways put the deputy [pilot] (who is a convict of the ...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 14 October 1824
In presenting our Readers with the first number of The Australian, we must be old-fashioned enough to give some account of our pretensions, and to state on what grounds we lay claim to their attention, or ex- pect their favour. We do not enter upon our duties of Editors of this new Journal without feeling much of that diffidence which commonly attends the com- mencement of the anxious labours of periodical writers. Whatever obstacles however may arise, or whatever difficulties we may have to encounter, we flatter ourselves that the Australian appears at a period period and under circumstances extremely propitious to such an undertaking. Were we simply to advert to the space of time during which this Colony has existed, we might be disposed to consider her in a state little likely to require the assistance of, or derive any benefit from the establishment of a free press. Infant societies, for the most part, have neither leisure nor inclination to bestow time or thought on objects tha...
SUPREME COURT.—(WEDNESDAY.) King v. Gillman, Esq. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 14 October 1824
SUPREME COURT-— (Wednesday.) &nbsp; King v. Gillman, Esq. A rule nisi in this case had been obtained on a pre- vious day, calling upon Captain Gillman to shew &nbsp; &nbsp; cause why a criminal information should not be filed &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; against him, for sending a challenge to Mr Jacob to &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; fight a duel, and also, for oppressive acts as a Ma- gistrate towards Mr. Jacob. &nbsp; &nbsp; On affidavits it appeared that Mr. Jacob had some time ago &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; received a grant of land on Hunter's River, together with a town allotment in Newcastle from the Colonial Government. A &nbsp; &nbsp; similar town allotment, adjacent to the above, had been granted &nbsp; to Mr. Reid and on this stood some old paling. Mr Reid had ??? a public notice requiring the person to whom the paling &nbsp; &nbs...
SETTLERS AT THE CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 14 October 1824
SETTLERS AT THE CAPE OF GOOD HOPE. We are informed that a subscription in aid of the distressed settlers at the Cape of Good Hope has &nbsp; '»s*«-a»-«^-*-«^c^. . in England, and is going on well; The accounts of the effects of the inundation in October last are of the most afflicting nature; and letters of the 16th December announced the failure of their fourth year's crop. We regret also to state that accounts of a distressing nature &nbsp; have been received from 'this Settlement; dated December &nbsp; 24. At that period the Caffres had made fresh attacks upon the ill-fated settlers, carrying off their cattle and burning their houses. Several skirmishes took place in consequence of these depredations, some of which are said to have had serious results. The following letter on the condition of these un fortunate people will, no doubt, be read with great interest :— &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; 'I have a threefold motive for sending you some ...

PARRAMATTA FAIR, AND THE MEETING OF THE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 14 October 1824
PARRAMATTA FAIR, AND THE MEETING OF &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; THE AGRICULTURAL SOCIETY. &nbsp; The Annual fair of the Colony was held, on &nbsp; Thursday last, at Parramatta. There was a very poor show. A few herd of horned cattle, about 60 &nbsp; &nbsp; sheep and lambs, and a dozen sale horses, com- &nbsp; &nbsp; prised nearly the whole live stock brought to the fair. A large pig, supposed to weigh between four and five hundred pounds, was exhibited. We did not hear whether a purchaser was obtained for it, at the price of five pounds. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; We observed some fine lambs of the Merino breed, &nbsp; &nbsp; the property of Mr. Lethbridge; and the produce of the Merino sheep, formerly in the possession of the the late Lord Castlereagh. Mr. L. we believe, asked twenty-five pounds each, for the ram lambs. &...
FOR THE AUSTRALIAN. To JOHN MACARTHUR, Esquire. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 21 October 1824
FOR THE AUSTRALIAN. To John Macarthur, Esquire. Leith, 26th March, 1821 — Dear Sir — "You would see by &nbsp; &nbsp; the English papers that the Skelton took fire on her passage &nbsp; home near the line. It first discovered itself by the smell of &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; burnt wool. We were obliged to break open the hold, and after pulling out and breaking up a number of bales, which were not &nbsp; &nbsp; easily unstowed, we came to the bale on fire, which was actually &nbsp; burning in the inside, and at the time actually in a state of ig- &nbsp; &nbsp; nition. The bale in question was perfectly dry, but was stowed &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; near an oil cask, and although a very small quantity of oil had &nbsp; leaked, yet it appears that it was the cause of the fire. Knowing &nbsp; that your wool was burnt on the passage home, induces me to give you this informat...

NEW ZEALAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 21 October 1824
NEW ZEALAND. A body of individuals have lately formed an asso- ciation for promoting emigration to New Zealand. &nbsp; The address which they have circulated certainly holds very sanguine prospects. We shall rejoice ex- ceedingly to hear of an industrious and thriving co- lony of Europeans established in the islands of New Zealand; but we think it right to observe that the &nbsp; first settlers will undoubtedly have to contend with many difficulties, and to submit to numerous priva- tions. The natives are too uncivilized at present to be always courteous and willing to assist. Moreover, any material offence given to them by a single indi- vidual may cause a general massacre of the colonists. The following is the Address— &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; To Families, half-pay or retired Officers of the Army and Navy, &nbsp; the Clergy, Agriculturists, Tradesmen, Mechanics, Labourers, &nbsp; &nbsp; and Others. &nbsp; &...

It is with feelings of unmingled congratulation that we refer our Readers to the detailed report con- tained in another part of our columns, of the pro- ceedings which took place in the Supreme Court on Thursday last, upon the discussion of the jury ques- tion. We beg their particular attention to the satis- factory decision which the Chief Justice pronounced on this occasion : and we cannot but consider it as a most auspicious coincidence, that The Australian should have been ushered into the world on a day, which that decision alone, will render a memorable era in the history of the Colony. The effect of it has been to introduce Trial by Jury among us, for the first time, as a partial experiment, and to settle the long agitated question as to the existence of Juries in the Courts of General or Quarter Sessions; a ques- tion in the way of which such an insidious opposi- &nbsp; tion has been so long thrown by a party here, who, whatever may be their assertions in public, it ...
