Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 23 December 1824

TO THE INDEPENDENT AUSTRALIAN NEWSPAPER.     THE spirit of your pretensions is a newly im- ported honor, with other indulgence, this Colony can at present boast of Freedom of the press is a valuable boon, pro- vided its dignity is not disgraced by mock pretensions. In my   opinion, it is a bad case in this Colony, when a man of business has to hold up his honesty in the newspapers. The merchants' immediate connections with persons, largely in trade, make it impossible for any man, who has for a number of years been in trade, to loose his character, unless he justly merits that loss. The explanation I am about to give, is known by the most res- pectable merchants of the Colony, to be true. There are a few newly imported government officers, who have thought proper to cast insinuations, that I was connected in the smuggling of to- bacco, &c. And as I am not inclined to have the name of   smuggler, as I have not sought for its...

At the conclusion of our Reply, last week, to our "lurking hole antagoinst," we stated, that we had   fortunately preserved a very useful document. The document we alluded to is the draft of the Act of the 4th Geo. 4. cap. 96. as it was originally sub- mitted to Parliament. In that draft there was a clause founded on the following recommendation contained in Part 1. of the Commissioner's Report, page 174. "In proportion, however, as the benefits of a state of   freedom are imparted to so large a portion of the in- habitants of New South Wales, I cannot contemplate                             their character, or the possible abuse that they make of such priveleges without submitting to Your Lord- ship the expediency of providing against the conse- quences of both, by conferring u...

POLICE OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 30 December 1824

POLICE OFFICE. MONDAY. — The attention of the court was this morning occupied for a considerable time, touching   certain jealousies existing between two respectable     married ladies; Mrs. Mary Anne Whitfield, on the one part, complainant; and Mrs. Harriet Powers, on the other part, defendant.                 From the premises, very feelingly communicated to the Magistrates, it appeared that Mrs. Harriot Powers, in company with her own lawful husband, went into the Cumberland Arms in George-street, on     Sunday evening last, and there requested permission to sit down in the public parlour; this very civil soli- citation was very uncivilly refused by Mistress Whit- field. Whereupon Mistress Powers gave vent to her irritible feelings in a power of abuse, insinuating in very unqualified terms that the aforesaid room ...

A Coroner's Inquest assembled at Abraham Home's farm, at Cobberty, in the district of Cook, on view of the body of William Harcourt, government servant to Mr. H. Macarthur, he having been unfortunately killed in a scuffle after a quarrel, on Monday night the 22d instant. It appears the unfortunate deceased came to Abraham Home's house in a state of intoxica- tion about 8 o'clock on the Wednesday night, where he obtained some spirits, which he drank there. During   this period Harcourt behaved very improperly and in- decently before Home's wife, which caused a quarrel between Home and him ; the latter struck Home vio-     lently several times, who, to defend himself, seized a stick or bludgeon (Harcourt being a very strong pow- erful man), with which he struck him down, and re-   -peated his blows several times. The poor man died   in five minutes. The whole circumstance of the un- fortunate affair were fully investigat...

SUPREME COURT. (FRIDAY.) SEDUCTION. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 30 December 1824

SUPREME COURT. (FRIDAY.) SEDUCTION. Ward v. Karnes. — The plaintiff in this case sought to reco- ver damages for the loss of his daughter's services. The damages were laid at one thousand pounds.               On behalf of the plaintiff, who was represented to be a res- pectable farmer residing at Minto, at which place also the defen- dant was possessed of considerable property;—the following   statement was made :—"In the month of February, 1823, the plaintiff embarked for England, leaving his daughter ( the subject of the present action) in charge of his family and concerns, during his absence. At the time of his departure no intimacy   subsisted between the defendant and any part of the plaintiff's family. Immediately after he contrived to become acquainted with, and commenced paying his addresses to the daughter, then little more than thirteen years of age ; addre...

To the Editor of the Australian. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 30 December 1824

To the Editor of the Australian. SIR, Pray what opinion do you entertain of the present deplorable state of the Aboriginal blacks. Is it not a matter of regret that the warmest zealots, who may be considered by nature and situa- tion born for the noble purpose of reforming those unfortunate         creatures, are so tardy in their endeavours, and so negligent in the cause they espouse? If some of your more diligent and en-   lightened readers would point out a method combining humanity and determination, with a plain accessible mode, whereby these herds may be brought under government, and rendered useful members of the community, and thus prevent the repetition of the outrages that have been committed, and which in a partial degree now exist, it doubtless would be a prelude to more ef- fective steps, mutually favorable. A truly erroneous opinion prevails amongst some individuals on the subject of their inno- cence, wh...

To the Editor of the Australian. SIR,                                   On the decease of almost all persons, dying in the public hospitals (I speak particularly of one) I have been galled to the heart to see (and to hear also) them borne to their last home by those unhappy (say nothing of degraded) being, who were shackled with iron manacles, known by the more common and op- probrious name of "the gaol gang;" and whose so-     litary procession gave an impression to the mind, that the deceased fell into his tomb by an act of his own hand, and that none of his fellow mortals would deign to recognise him even as an associate or friend. Now Sir, I put it frankly and fairly to the public, through   the medium of your Journal, whet...

I repeat the words of a proprietor. As I have...

To the Editor of the Australian.   SIR,                 To prove the importance of the manufacture of leather would     be a useless task, its importance to the welfare of Great Britain, and of her colonies, stands incontrovertibly ascertained by the many enactments, which from time to time have been passed for its protection and encouragement, and by the anxious care with which in common with her other most important manufactories, that of leather is cultivated in the parent country.     Why this very useful and highly interesting manufacture   could be disregarded, or rather why it should either by passive neglect, or by measures of direct hostility, be suffered to fall into decay, or be absolutely ruined in this colony, is the question ? I believe, Sir, we have only one manufactory which furnishes an ...

In our paper of last week we mentioned that a meet- ing of the Magistrates had been held at Parramatta for the purpose of taking into consideration, among other things, what measures it would be expedient to adopt with a view to the apprehension of the numer- ous gangs of runaway marauders who are at present infesting every part of the Colony. A second meeting of the Magistrates was held at Walker's, on Tuesday last, and we are informed that a strong horse patrol is, upon their recommendation, to be immediately or- ganized and distributed along the high roads, and throughout the principal districts, in such manner that they may be able, at a short notice, to communi- cate and co-operate with one another in sufficient num- bers, to meet any exigency which may arise. A body of this sort, composed of the youths of the Colony (if they can be had), and well armed and mounted, would doubtless soon rid the Community of these marauders, whose numbers, it would seem, from the published list ...

FOR THE AUSTRALIAN.       "Risu inepto, res ineptior nulla est."           Nothing more foolish than the laugh of fools. While Cymon gazed on beauteous Tphigene,   With idiot wonderment, and clownish mien,       As when the sun beams penetrate the mines, The twilight brightens, and the ore refines, So beauty's rays his mental darkness clear'd,     And latent feeling in his breast appear'd.   Beauty !— thy sway, thro' every clime is known,     From Nova Zembla to the burning zone ; Thence to the southern Thule it prevails,   Enlivening, en passant, ev'n New South Wales ;         There, in vile doggerel, is thy power confess'd ;   It animates a second Cymon's breast !   &amp...
