The Natives. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 6 July 1827

The Natives. These savages are again at work, carrying     slaughter and devastation wherever they go.   On Sunday last, a tribe appeared at Quamby's   Bluff, robbed the hut of Mr. WIDSOWSON there, and destroyed every thing which they could not take away. Two men, who had gone out in the morning in quest of their sheep, are supposed to have been murdered by the natives, as no tidings bave since been heard of them, and some of their dogs returned completely speared through, without their masters. This, added to the circumstance of their cries having been heard amid a great uproar of the natives, leaves no hope that these unhappy men could escape the fury of the savages. One was a servant to Mr. Widowson - the other to Mr. Walker. Another of Mr. Widowson's men, hearing the outcry, went instantly for his gun and ammu- nition, with intent to follow the natives. - A mob shewed themselves at the back of the hut, which he followed, and su...

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JULY 6,1827. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 6 July 1827

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JULY 6,1827. We can scarcely describe our feelings in being compelled to record this week, that a gang of bush-rangers, absolute bush-rangers, is again at large. We had anticipated last week, that it would have fallen to our lot to have had to record the apprehension of the prisoners who we stated had attempted pira- tically to seize the cutter Emma Kemp on Thursday night, while laying in the har- bour ; but we are sorry to be obliged to state, with reference to these men, that they are   not only at large, but have increased in num- ber. Little did we imagine when we late- ly congratulated our fellow Colonists on the tranquil state of the Colony, and expatiated largely on the beneficial policy of Lieutenant Governor Arthur, in giving free pardons to Crown prisoners who apprehended, or was instrumental in apprehending any of the late notorious banditti headed by Brady, that we   should so soon have to record the existence of another ...

Execution. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 6 July 1827

Execution         Early on Tuesday morning, the solemn note of the death-bell, which warned the un- happy men on whom that sun had risen,     which they were never to see set, of their awful and approaching doom, struck upon our ear, occasioning emotions better imagined than described. At about half-past eight, the following unhappy men were led upon the scaffold, pursuant to their sentence:-   Thomas Bidwell Child, for forgery on the Lords Commissioners of His Majesty's' Trea- sury; John Clayton, George Dunning, and William Longhurst, for sheep-stealing; Daniel McPherson and Martin Higgins, for stealing in a dwelling-house at noon-day, attended with aggravated circumstances; John Wright, for robbery, under peculiarly aggravated cir- cumstances; and Henry Oakley, for bur-   glary.

Buenos Apres. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 13 July 1827

buenos ñ$u&. From a private letter written by a Scotch officer of the Buenos Ayres navy, in the end of May, which we have seen, it would ap-, pear, that if the ability of that State is equfd, to its promises, their warrior» are placed upon a much better footing than in our own, or per-1 haps any other country. It is stated that the Íav of a midshipman is 83 dollars a month-a| econd.Heufenant, <fó dollars, and of a sur- geon, 70 dollars a month. The writer, who is' himself second lieutenant, says, " Should any thing happen to me, my wife will receive my, full p% of 66 dollars a month during the time! she is % widow, and if she marines, it is diVi ded among the children" who are under 21 years of age, until'the youngest arrives at that age, when it ceases, or the family have the option of receiving 20 years' pay cash down, in full of all claims upon the Govern- ment, which would enable them all to return to Europe, if they wished it.

Colonial Times. HOBART TOWN: FRIDAY, JULY 13, 1827. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 13 July 1827

COLONIAL TIMES   HOBART TOWN       FRIDAY, JULY 13, 1827.   It is with feelings of peculiar satisfaction, that we have this week to announce the cap ture of ten out of the gang of thirteen bush- rangers. The three which now remain at large cannot long evade the vigilance of their pursuers, who are close to their heels on a neck of land from which there is no possibi- lity of escape. Indeed by this time we have no doubt that they are all prisoners, and that the lawless crew have terminated their ca-   reer. Thus will our tranquillity, so sudden- ly broken, be restored, and the Colonists freed from any apprehensions of the bandit- ti. We trust the short run which these un-   happy men have had will operate as a lesson to others not to be so absurd as to attempt to take the bush. That mode of life is now at an end - the connexion is broken - and, as we before said, in all cases where attempts may...

He who writes - ......- More certainly invites His judges than his friends. The spongy brain of this stripling has just la- boured one Httle> month, and he gives birth to the child of Billingsgate.

Final Capture of the Bush ran gers. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times and Tasmanian Advertiser — 20 July 1827

Since the publication or our last, in which we had the gratification to report the cap- ture of ten out of the thirteen bush-rangers, the remaining three have all been appre- hended, by Serjeants O'Brian and Hickey, of the 40th Regiment. They were taken near- ly in the same place as the others, near King George's Sound. The two Brown's were   within an ace of eluding the vigilance of the Military ; and the other, Robinson, assigned servant to Mr. Young, was picked up in a   state of complete exhaustion, not having taken any food for 48 hours-an example of the comforts of bush-ranging. We are happy to add, that the exertions and good conduct of Constable Pefer Scott, are to be rewarded with a free pardon; and most ot the volunteers are, we understand, to be also rewarded with emancipations. Scott richly deserves it, as from his information, derived from private intercourse with the stock-keepers, the Military were led more directly upon the parties, than the...
