PORT NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 2 December 1804

PORT NEWS.     Arrived on Thursday the colonial vessel      Resource; with the Raven, Raby, and Wm. and Mary, Miller, from King's Town, Newcastle, with coals and cedar. Sailed on Wednesday the Bee, and yester- day the Charlotte, for the above settle- ment.   Mr. Thompson's project of getting off the Speedwell, is, we learn, likely to prove successful, the damage sustained not being so excessive as was imagined. About ten days since, a fine ewe was found dead in a field near Parramatta, with- out any previous ailment. A foam at the   nostrils remained, from which it it was ima- gined its death was occasioned by the bite of a snake; and on very close examination a   puncture was discerned upon the lip, which   was no doubt justly attributed to the above   cause.

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 2 December 1804

SYDNEY.             On Wednesday a native youth died at Sydney of a dysentery, who was the first of the savage inhabitants of this colony intro- duced to civil society. When an infant he was rescued from barbarism by the event of his parents' death, both being shot while they were engaged in plundering and laying   waite the then infant settlement at Toon-     gabbee. When the pillagers were driven   off the infant was found, and compassionately           adopted as a foundling by George Bath, a prisoner. The little creature then received   the name of James Bath. His protector,           at leaving the colony, bequethed his little charge to D. Greville, who likewise going   away, left him to the care ...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 9 December 1804

  SYDNEY. The wheat at the extensive settlement of Hawkesbury is nearly all in : some of the late crops have suffered from the blight ; but in general there exists no very great cause of complaint. From a settler upon one of the new farms at Portland Head we were given to understand, that the grounds in that re- mote neighborhood showed vastly well ; and that appearance qualified their produce to be estimated at not less than 30 bushels of grain per acre. The crops of barley about Hawkesbury, however, we are sorry to say, fall very short of expectation. The recent showers were acceptable to the gardener, and will essentially benefit the remaining fruit. The supply of vegetables to the Sydney market has been very sparing for several weeks past, owing to the want of sufficient moisture. The assistance affor- ded from Kissing Point has been in confe- rence mostly confined to the young potatoe ; which selling moderately, operated as a curb upon the Sydney prices. The black ...

ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 9 December 1804

ACCIDENT.     On Tuesday last a shocking accident happened at the yard of Isaac Nicholls, near the   Hospital Wharf, by which William Collins, a labouring servant of the Crown, was crushed   to death. Mr. Nicholl's men being     engaged in rolling a log of immense size and weight on to a raised saw-pit, and requiring assistance, the deceased voluntarily tendered his aid. - When ths piece of timber was raised about breast high, the weight became too excessive to be supported without ropes or parbuckles; these Mr. Nicholls was himself   gone into the house to procure, but in the mean time the people were overpowered, and with irresistible force thrown backwards. The above unfortunate man fell at the bottom of the skids, the log resting on his head and breast; the former of which was so dreadfully   fractured, as to occasion his instantaneous       death. Three others were shockingly &nbs...

[Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 9 December 1804

From the accidents to which mariners, and many of the inhabitants of this colony are by their ordinary pursuits exposed, we   beg leave to lay open the following Di- rections for the Treattnent of PERSONS APPARENTLY DROWNED.   " It is very evident there is no employ- ment whatever in life so liable to this acci- dent, as sea-faring people, and those employ- ed on rivers about the mips ; I therefoie think it highly necessary to give some gene-   ral directions, towards the recovery of those unfortunates, as I well know many have fal- len victims to the water, from the neglect of a few means. " When a person has remained above twenty minutes under water, there can be no considerable hopes of his recovery : but we should never too soon resign the unhappy object to his fate, but try every method for his relief, as there are many well attested proofs of the recovery of persons to life and health, who had been taken out of the water apparently dead, ...

MISCELLANIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 9 December 1804

MISCELLANIES. Mr. Thomson has succeeded in getting off   the Speedwell, formerly Grono. This was effected on Wednesday, and on Thursday she sailed for Hawkesbury from Broken Bay, the spot of her misfortune and recovery ; the da- mage sustained to the vessel comparatively trifling. Mr. T. at some distance from   the assistance of any of his people perceived among a body of natives a white man, nearly if not entirely naked, in whose person he soon recognized that of Thomas Desmond, now a fugitive from King's Town. Had it not been that the natives were aware that upon calling aloud the people employed in getting off the boat would come immediately to his aid, the rash adventurer would certainly have perished beneath their merciless hands, after   encountering all the inconceivable distresses         consequent on an improvident travel through the uncultivated country.   So far from r...

ADVERTISEMENT.     Captain Barber, Commander of the ship     Myrtle, having perused an account contained in the Sydney Gazette of May 29, 1803, stating, That Captain R.

Remainder of Ship News. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 16 December 1804

Remainder of Ship News. On Friday arrived the Alexander whaler Captain Rhodes, late from the Derwent and Adventure Bay, having procured one hundred tons of oil. Off Cape Howe Captain Rhodes fell in with a prodigious number of sperm whale, several of which he killed: he also passed through Storm Bay Passage, and the River Huan, about 16 miles from Sullivan, where he procured a number of very fine black swans, many of which are yet alive. These birds were so extremely numerous as to cover the surface of the water in large flocks, fifty of which were made prisoners in the short space of twenty minutes. Captain Rhodes is clearly of opinion, that from the middle of May to the beginning of January the fishery at and about the River Derwent would be very productive, as a single vessel might procure from 250 to 300 tons; but that after that season little can be accomplished, as the weaning of the calves then takes place, and most of the fish go off. The most agreeable accounts are received ...

Arrival and Departure of Boats. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 16 December 1804

Arrival and Departure of Boats. On Tuesday sailed for the Hawkesbury the Hope, Argument, Charlotte, and Im- provement ; and on Thursday the William for Broken bay.     Yesterday evening a Gala was given by the Natives at Parramatta, at which the well known Yaranibi received a very severe spear wound in the back. The motives that gave rise to the meeting rendered the scene particularly interesting to honour and humanity, while it reflected credit to the feelings of a barbarous people. The above had inhumanly forsaken his unfortunate fe- male companion in the hour of sickness and affliction, to perish unassisted. Discovered in a solitary condition, her eye-lids nearly closed by grief and famine, tumultuous ven- geance was proclaimed, and the earliest oc- casion seized to inflict upon the offender the punishment so justly his.   During the storm on Monday last many fowls were blinded by the lightning. In several instances being noticed attentively...
