SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 28 October 1804

SYDNEY. We are concerned to state, that the Ca- terpillar and Grub continue very numerous and destructive at the Hawkesbury, where they are doing much damage to the very promising crops in that quarter. The wheat in every other district is clear of those in- insects. The wheat on the Five Hundred Acres at the Government Grounds about Castle Hil is nearly ready reaping, and   promises an abundant Increase. Owing to Some severe blights it is singular that there is not a single early Peach to   found on the numerous trees of that kind Which in former years produced so great an abundance of fruit. On Friday the Admission Flag was hoisted on board the ship Myrtle.   Yesterday se'nnight between the hours of 11 and 12 at noon the dead body of Mrs. Mary Nicholls, wife of Mr. Isaac Nicholls, was perceived floating on the water near Goat Island, and picked up by two labour- ers employed in grass-cutting. She was brought to the Hospital Wharf ; was remove...

BENCH of MAGISTRATES. TUESDAY, OCT. 23, [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 28 October 1804

BENCH of MAGISTRATES.           Tuesday, Oct. 23, A full Bench was convened, for the pur- pose of taking into cosideration the tenders made by the several candidates for Licenses to carry on the trade of Butcher for the en- suring year. The names returned were 11 in number ; out of which, agreeable to His Excellen- cy's General Order of the 14th instant, only six could be appointed. The prices proposed were--Pork from 7½ d. to 10d. and Mutton at one shilling to 1s. 3d. per lb. ; all the applicants at length acceding to the terms of averaging the for- mer at 8½ d. and vending the latter at one shilling per pound. Several objections were started, however, against the immediate reduction in the price of mutton ; among which were those of the two persons heretofore licensed ; who re- presented, that having a very confiderable stock in hand, purchased at a dear rate, the retail of the article at one shilling per pound must ...

POSTSCRIPT. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 28 October 1804

              POSTSCRIPT.       His Excellency left Town on Friday for Parramata ; intending to visit the Agri- cultural Settlement at Hawkesbury.     Among the various efforts made to preserve good order, none can promise greater efficacy than the imposition of labour for the public be- nefit, in proportion to the demerit of the culprit.—Here we beg leave to allude to the purport of the General Order of the 26th instant, contained in the first page ; which it   is to be hoped will be found serviceable to society in restraining dissipation ; or failing   in which, the species of benefit afforded from the consequent mode of punishment, will in some measure atone for any trifling irregu- larity. The salutary requisition respecting the ap- prehension of indolent characters must meet with universal concurren...

LONDON. The Cosmopolite has captured a Dutch East Indiaman from Batavia, loaded with spi- ces, &c. valued at 80,000l. bound to Amster- dam, had she not found a safe port at Ply- mouth. The Captain's share of the said prize as chief Owner and Commander, will amount to nearly one half. The Sussinate, of 14 guns, has captured and sent into Plymouth a Dutch East India- man valued-at 160,000l. The total amount of the prizes captured this war is computed at 12,000,000l. sterling -those carried into Liverpool alone are va- lued at 2,400,000l. The celebrated L.

EXTRACTS FROM THE LATEST INDIA GAZETTES. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 4 November 1804

EXTRACTS               FROM THE LATEST INDIA GAZETTES. The Ceylon Government Gazette gives the following account of the fortunate cap- ture of the Alfred French privateer of 14 guns and 73 men, from the Mauritius in De- cember last. The Alfred first appeared in fight to the southward of Galle, shewing English Co- lours.—She was then steering to the N. W. but shortly after altered her course and stood directly for the Sheerness—Captain Lind had suspected her from the first, and therefore see- ing her superiority in point of failing, got all ports in, and his half ports above, and by keeping his course and disfiguring the ship in every way, he deceived the Privateer so com- pletely, that taking her for an Indiaman, they   came boldly down with an intention to board, and actually fired into the Sheerness, who re- turned a few guns ; but finding he still at- tempted to escape, tho alm...

BENCH of MAGISTRATES. SATURDAY, OCT. 27. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 4 November 1804

BENCH of MAGISTRATES. SATURDAY, OCT. 27. John Riley stood charged on oath by W. Bond, baker of Sydney, with having fraudu- lently obtained from him a sum of money amounting to 5l. 12s. as the payment in part of a quantity of wheat which he pretended he had to dispose of. The artifice resorted to by the prisoner to accomplish the fraud requires to be exposed, in order that the Public may be put upon their guard against any similar imposture that might hereafter be attempted. The prisoner called on the complainant to acquaint him that he had received 25 bushels   of wheat from Hawkesbury, then lying in a boat at the Hospital Wharf, and 20 bushels of which it was his wish to dispose of. The terms of purchase acceded to were 6s. 6d. per bushel, to be paid in money ; and all that was requisite to complete the bargain was to gratify the purchaser with a sample of     the grain—little suspicion being entertained of the vender's probity. The prisoner l...

A short Description of the Manners and Customs of the Inhabitants of TONGATABOO. Collected from a Person between two and three Years resident among them. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 4 November 1804

A short Description of the Manners and Cus- toms of the Inhabitants of TONGATABOO, Collected from a Person between two and three   Years resident among them This island, which is one of the group de- nominated the Friendly Islands, is situated close to Happée (Haapai) and Anamoi, with the inha- bitants of either or both of which they are generally involved in war ; in consequence of which, the population of all the lslands has suffered considerably, and is at present by no means extensive. Of this island Ducava is acknowledged the principal chief, and is universally reflec- ted as such : but he is not, however, with- out a competitor in the person of a younger brother, who without disputing seems to be vested with the first executive power, and shares his kinsman's dignity. The subjects of this dingy potentate are admitted to a plurality of wives, though few, if any, extend the license further than a pair ; and this custom appears to be estab lished on a principle of po...
