To the Editor of the Hawkesbury Courier. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Courier and Agricultural and General Advertiser — 15 August 1844

To the Editor of the Hawkesbury Courier. SIR.-It is with great grief I observe that bard ly -a wepk passes over our beads without our ears being saluted three or four times with tales of robberies having been committed in the heart ?of the town and under the very noses of the Police. Who is to blame in this matter ? I should cer tainly be inclined to cast some of it upon that body. The Chief Constable I conceive to be a most active and efficient Officer' though certainly very badly paid. Some also of the constables are not amiss j-but there are too many who I verily believe would never have sense or shrewdness -enough to detect any robbery unless it waa too palpably apparent for tbem to miss it. Another evil 1 have often noticed ia the tact, that tbeir duty appears entirely limited to tbe deteotionof robberies ofttr ifuir perpetration. I myself con ceive that it might be very beneficially extended to tbe prevention of them. lam in tbe habit of noticing many persona larking «bout tbe...

To the Editor of the Hawkesbury Courier. SIB,-It is, I believe, pretty generally acknow ledged by the respectable inhabitants of this ex tensive and populous Agricultural District, more particularly the Tradespeople and men of business residing in tbe Borough, that the restoration of the Quarter Sessions and Gaol Establishment is essentially necessary to ensure the Administra tion of Justice, and prevent the escape of n numerous body of petty larceny scoundrels with impunity, knowing well that, should they happen to bo caught, in nine cases out of every ten tbe matter would be looked over, (even in silence) rather than acquaint tbs Constabulary, or bring the delinquent to justice,-first, iu consequence of these being obliged to attend at the Police Office from day to day belora the services of e Magistrate ean be obtained, the Humber of the unpaid being so few; -and in the second place, should a Committal follow, and themselves and most probably tbe greater part of their families an...

The Duke of Wellington and the bag-man. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Courier and Agricultural and General Advertiser — 15 August 1844

The Dilke of Welling ton and the bag-man. On the 18th of June, 1815, the battle «of Waterloo was raging tiercel y. Na poleon and Wellington were in the midst ol' their *« great game,"and each intently regarding the " moves" upon the com plicated and chequered field. Squadron after squadron bore down upon our gallant infantry, as the big waves rise and break upon her level shore, and then re tire in unavailing fury and dispersing foam. Then followed the devastating fire of artillery, rending our brave and living masses in gory fissures, which were closed as soon as made, or avoided I)y a change of altitude ; and then again came the fierce rush of the horse-borne and enthusiastic foe, with cuirass, and uplifted sabre, to be as often repulsed by a steady-fire of musketry, or checked or routed by our own resolute and strong armed cavalry. Confident in the strength of numbers and the success of other days, Napoleon departed not from his favorite and furious system : and firm in purpose a...

The Roads of the Colony. [Newspaper Article] — Hawkesbury Courier and Agricultural and General Advertiser — 15 August 1844

The Roads of the Colony. A VERY important feature in the Distric Councils Bill was, the duty which devolvec upon the Councillors in each District res pectively, of making orders and framing By-laws for the formation, maintenance, and repairs of the Roads of the Colony. Ai t hat Bill, however, was not allowed a second Heading-the Council having been of opi nion " that the District Councils were to tally unsuited to the circumstances of the Colony, the Country Districts having been unable to meet the additional taxation, which would necessarily be required in carrying out the various objects contem plated by their institution, and the cost of the machinery requisite for bringing them tinto operation, being of itself an obstacle fatal to their success"-it follows, , that unless some steps are taken hythe Legis« ture to improve the means of internal com munication, the wool-growers and other settlers in the inferior .will shortly be utterly unable to transmit their produce to Sydney, or...
