To the Printer of the Sydney Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 1 May 1803

To the Printer of the Sydney Gazette. "SIR,     Whilst with you I admire the progress of Commerce in our remote Colony, yet the pleasures of imagination a subject to a por-   tion of alloy, which throws a gloom upon the images of anticipating fancy ; as, from the want of a Staple, our Commerce cannot be   supported upon the principles of Barter, but   Importation, until an Export be provided,   must necessarily drain the colony of its spe- cie. So great an efflux of Ready Money would, but for the timely introduction of the copper currency, have proved materially prejudicial to all classes of inhabitants, but its local value prohibiting its exportation   the circulation becomes general and un- limited, and the poor are enabled to purchase   of the wholesale buyer ; from which salutary   accommodation, importation is encouraged,   and the adventurer finds, in New South ...

Extract FROM THE REPORTS OF THE SOCIETY FOR BETTERING THE CONDITION, AND INCREASING THE COMFORTS OF THE POOR. A LETTER,   Suggesting a Mode of Preserving POTATOES. (BY LANGFORD MILLINGTON, ESQ.) In compliance with your request, expressed at the meeting of the Society for bettering     the Condition of the Poor, I herewith send   you my simple but effectual mode of pre-   serving potatoes without fire, sweet and good,   for a great length of time.   I have, as yet, only tried it upon small quantity of potatoes in my own family : and   I had intended deferring the publication of any account of it, until I had ascertained, by   an apparatus I have ordered to be made, the   expence and effects of the operation on a great     scale. But your request, and peculiar     circumstances of the present season, added to       the exiling apprehension that the last year's   crop of potatoes is ...

Extracts From the latest English Papers. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 1 May 1803

Extracts   From the latest English Papers.             A person of the name of Finch has disco- vered a composition for preventing the smut in Wheat, and for preserving it from the at-   tacks of the wire-worm. It is said greatly to increase the quantity of corn per acre ; and that three half pints of the composition is suf-   ficient to prepare feed for an acre of wheat.   It has recently been discovered, that an application of turpentine to parts which have been burned or scalded, is the most effectual   mode of allaying pain.   DESCRIPTION OF A LIFE BOAT.- - - To nautical men, some idea of the form of the boat may be conveyed by saying, that the top, or upper part of the boat, exactly re-   sembles that of a Memel fishing boat ; the stem and stern are like those of a Norway yawl ; and the bottom like that of a Shields   cable, having a cur...

Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 1 May 1803

Sydney. The Civil Court has not yet made any ad- judication in the Cause S. Lord ( as agent to Mr. Hugh Machin), versus John Palmer,     Esq. On Thursday last 55 Pieces of Lignum Vitae or Dye-wood. were received on board   His Majesty's ship Glatton for England. The quantity of Ship timber received by the Glatton, on Friday amounted to 120 heavy pieces. She will continue to take in as long as she may remain here. We would willingly venture a hope that the circumstances of converting a part of the Gaol into a temporary provision store, is   some assurance of a reformation among the     lower orders who, perchance begin to feel   that the residence of guilt is equally the man-   sion of wretchedness, and that the terrors   of a prison are to be avoided by adopting a conduct upon which their peace of mind and personal security alike depend. On Friday Mr. J. Underwood accidentally       fell from the taff rail of the new v...

Extracts from the latest English Papers. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 8 May 1803

==================   Extracts from the latest English Papers. The Nautical Reader may depend on the accuracy of the following article, communi-   cated by an Officer of the Sea-horse. Capt. Le Meme, of the French privateer Le Nuice, in 1797, while cruizing off Cey- lon, f?il?in with the Ball of Cotton Rock and     another Shoal, about the existence of which navigators have long been doubtful ; and by many supposed to be only ideal ; I therefore give you an account taken from the obser-   vations he made. In 5, 18 North latitude, and 38° 20 East     longitude from Paris, there is a small island   about 25 or 30 feet above the surface of the   Sea, between 50 and 60 feet long, and about   20 in breadth : it is situated on a sand bank which extends about 300 feet in a N. E. and S. W. direction : at a half mile distance from     it there is no soundings with 100 fathoms of line, and a boat's length from it 20 fa- thoms water. In January 1799, Capt....

TUNNEL UNDER THE THAMES. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 8 May 1803

TUNNEL UNDER THE THAMES. About the latter end of last October, the   Steam Engine-house, that cleared away the   water that impedes the subterraneous works, appeared in one general blaze ; and in spite of every exertion of the workmen and miners, aided by the kindness of the inhabitants, all the internal erections of wood were consumed.     By what accident or villainy the flames were communicated, is not known, but it is ge- nerally reported to have originated in some flax or tow taking fire at the foot of the stairs. The men were at work as usual --- the fire was almost instantaneously discovered, but no exertion could impede its ravage.   The total loss does not exceed five hundred pounds ; and all the works may be rebuilt in three months. The power of the engine is far superior to the weight of the water to be raised, for the excavation had been success- fully arched by what the miners term a curb- ing, and had penned out the springs equal to the most sanguine expec...

WEST-INDIA DOCKS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 8 May 1803

WEST-INDIA DOCKS.   The grand and magnificent work was on   the 27th of August last opened for the recep- tion of vessels ; when the Henry Addington, one of the finest ships in the West-India trade,   was conducted through the locks into the grand dock, amidst the shouts of the multi-   tude, and the discharge of cannon. Nothing could surpass the beauty of the scene; the ship was dressed out from stem to stern in the colours of all the maritime Nations, and the whole passed in review before the Directors   of the Plan, and the first and most distin-   guished characters in the country. The ac-   commodation these Docks must afford our   Commerce is an object of universal admira- tion, inasmuch as they promise to become of the first national importance.

Accounts from the Mediterranean. GIBRALTAR, SEPT. 1, 1802. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 8 May 1803

Accounts from the Medi- terranean.     GIBRALTAR SEPT 1, 1802   " By the last accounts from Toulon, the French are collecting an immense army in that neighbourhood (it is said 50,000 men), under pretence of an expedition againft Al- giers. " Strong apprehensions seem to be justly   entertained by our, Government, concerning the real destination of this powerful force, as orders have been received here, within these few days, to detain all ships of war that were on their way to England, from any part of the Mediterranean ; in consequence     of which, the Renown and Thames, from     Malta, have both been stopped ; the former had troops on board, which she landed here two days ago.       " On the Orders being received here, the Triumph, commanded by Sir Robert Barlow, was ordered to cruize in the Gut, for the pur- pose of sending in any men of war that might happen to be passing.   ...

In the course of the two following nights, however, they both voluntarily returned to their recent lodging, which they prudently preferred to the certain dangers of a romantic resort to the woods. This timely submission operated strongly on the minds of the Magistrates, who at all times consider contrition as a recommendation   to merc...

To the Printer of the Sydney Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 8 May 1803

To the Printer of the Sydney Gazette. " SIR,   Numerous complaints are made through- out the Colony on the serious subject of Youthful Education ; whether such com- plaints are justly founded or no, I cannot al- together determine, but still flatter myself that the result of my enquiries on the subject may not be wholly unworthy the perusal. It has long been admitted that Learning is a foe to vice, and observation convinces us, that ignorance is generally the companion of guilt ; as from a hundred abandoned charac- ters it would be difficult to select three per- sons of improved talent, nor is it less worthy of remark, that in Scotland, where all classes laudably aspire to knowledge, fewer crimi-   nal causes make their appearance than in any other part of the united Kingdoms. An   elegant author compares the human soul with- out education, to marble in a quarry, which shews none of its inherent virtues untill the   skill of the polisher fetches out the col...

SYDNEY. Some days ago a DIFFIDENT young man went into the house of a publican, and de   sired to taste his excellent liquor, for which he had been informed HIS house was fam'd. The cordial being introduced, the stranger expatiated ably upon its exquisite flavor, and demanded the change of half-a-guinea,     which, carelessly committing to his pocket, he protested that having changed his waist- coat he had no cash about him, "but THAT     was a matter of little consequence ;" so call- ing for pen and ink, MODESTLY drew up   the following Note,---I O U 10s. 6d. which having subscribed, was presented as an un- deniable tender. This instrument passed through several hands, none of whom were acquainted with the signature ; until, by dint of enquiry, occasioned by its refusal, the drawer was found out, and requested to cash it : this he did by deliberately tearing to pieces the first, and giving in lieu of it a ...
