THE LAYTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 28 January 1836
THE LAYTON. We have beene requested by Dr. Rule, the- Sur- geon of the female emigrant ship Layton to in- sert in to-day's number a letter in reply to some aspersions on his character contained in the Pam phlet lately published by Mr. John Marshall, the agent for the Female Emigration Committee in London. As Dr. Rule's letter has been already published in some of the other colonial journals, and as our columns of to-day contain a letter on the same subject from Mr. Beilby, the Superintendent of the Layton, we deem it unne- cessary to do more than to publish Capt. Wades certificate to Dr. Rule ·as it is to the remarks of that gentleman that the letter in question chiefly applies: &nbsp; &nbsp; Sydney, January 25, 1834 &nbsp; I do hereby certify, that the bearer Mr. John Rule has done the duty of Surgeon on board the ship Layton &nbsp; (under my command), to the Emigrants, Passengers and Crew on a voyage from London hither, perfectly to my satisfaction....

MR. MARSHALL'S PAMPHLET. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 28 January 1836
- 'MR.

We can recollect the time 3hi6e, even in this convict colony; such a thing as street walking was unheard of; but, thanks to Mir.

M. — Regiment, Dr. Radford arrived in the colony in the year 1824 on furlough from his Regiment in India, having married an English lady at Algoa Bay during his stay at the Cape. He obtained a grant of land from Sir Thomas Brisbane at Hunter's River, but returned a year or two thereafter to India to complete his period of service. His two sons were on their way from India to the Australian College, when they were both drowned in the unfortunate vessel that was lost on Amsterdam Island about three years ago. The melancholy tidings of this calamitous visitation preyed upon Dr. R.'s sensitive spirit, and the climate of India underminded his robust constitution, so that on...

Domestic Intelligence. THE COLONIAL MAGISTRATES AGAIN [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 28 January 1836
Domestic Intelligence. &nbsp; &nbsp; THE COLONIAL MAGISTRATES AGAIN WE have been informed on good authority, that we were under a mistake last week in imputing the articles From a Correspondent in The Sydney Herald, relative to the recent dismissal of the Magistrates, to Mr. Edward O'Shaughnessy ; these articles having been written by other, and somewhat older, hands. On a matter of fact of this kind we are always open to correction, and we have therefore much pleasure in acknowledging that we were in error in the case in question; Mr. O'Shaughnessy having merely been em ployed to write articles for The Herald on the Emancipist, or as it is called, the Convict Jury System. It would seem then that our informant had merely mistaken the department of the Free Emigrant's Journal which had been assigned to the Emancipist Editor of The Sydney Ga zette ; for as to the fact of Mr. O'Shaughnessy's being a paid contributor to that Journal there can be no doubt. Our object in a...

COLLIERY EXPLOSION.--A dreadful explosion took place at one of Mr.Russell's coal mines, situate at &nbsp; Wallsend, about four miles from Newcastle. About 250 people are employed at this colliery; and the hewers of coal with the exception of four, had left the mine under the impression of its perfect safety. About 100 putters, consisting for the most part- of young men and boys, remained at work. Their labours were superintended by four, overmen and deputy overmen-all men of great 'experience, some having been accustomed to work in the pits for upwards of thirty years. While the operation of ' putting' the coals was going on, the banksmen were suddenly alarmed by a loud report in the church pit, which they describe as being similar to an earthquake. The rushing of the foul air to the shaft, bringing up with it some of the pitmen's clothes and, other light articles from the bottom, left no room for conjecture as to what had occurred in the mine. The report was occasioned by a...
