They' leave their tea, and take. n\\ay our dollars — giving us no credit — bringing 11s no emigrants, not even a single passenger ; j they take none of, our' wool, oil, skins, blue gum, or cedar, in exchange', and llieir stay 'and ex penditure, while in port, are hardly perceptible. - So much tea, of course, requires a 'proportionable supply of sugar; and in the same peri...

POLICE INCIDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 3 June 1826

POLICE INCIDENTS.   On Monday, as usual, the office was assailed with nu- merous bacchanals, of both sexes.       Judith Macleod was among the foremost. Some con- stables had picked up her ladyship the previous night or two, in a state quite the reverse of sobriety; in other words, she was rolling drunk, and in such a public thorough-fare, too, as King-street. The Magistrate offered her two alter- natives— either to make a voluntary offering of 5s. for the benefit of her poorer sisterhood, or to get a quiet set down in the stocks for some, perhaps six hours. Judith seemed quite irresolute which mode to adopt, neither being much to her liking, so she was recommended to retire and rumin-   ate for an hour or two, whilst the disposing of other defaul- ters might be gone through. Judith complied, and made   way for         A sober looking, elderly, almost out...

POLICE INCIDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 7 June 1826

POLICE INCIDENTS. Forty cases and upwards were disposed of before the   Police Bench on Monday last ; the greater proportion being made up of night walkers, offensive and inof- fensive of male and female personages ; who had been picked up in their different stages of inebriety, — from the frisky, half-drunk, half-sober votary of the rosy god, to the " choice spirit " whose animal spirits have been, so far overcome by the more powerful influ- ence of ardent spirits, as to induce his taking up a night's lodging in the open street, and under the open canopy of heaven, pillowed by the softest stone that may chance to lie in the way ; for drunkenness " — can snore upon the flint,   While lazy sloth finds the down pillow hard." Some of those geniuses were forced to increase the poor fund, by paying down, though sore against their will, an involuntary fine of 5s., or to invest their per- sonal property, most unprofitably, in the stocks, in lieu; whilst others were condemned t...
