POLICE INCIDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 2 September 1826

POLICE INCIDENTS. A man, claiming a prerogative of freedom, was charged on Thursday with extracting an unknown quantity of porter from a cask which was lying on the King's Wharf. A sentry, who was on duty during Tuesday night, at the said ?Wharf, it appeared, descried the prisoner crouching under a truck— now, this truck lay on one side of a porter cask, and the sentry, suspecting the cask to possess some internal attraction, marched up, until he came abreast of the scene of ambush—"challenged," as in military parlance it is   termed, the luckless wight, who still lay extended under the hand cart, in the posture of a rifle or light infantry-man who chooses to embrace his mother earth, whilst living, rather than trust standing upright to the saving mercies of a sweep- ing round of "grape" or "canister'" as it proceeds, seek-     ing whom it may devour, from the embrasures of a well offended and de-fended battery. The sentry could obtain no answe...

POLICE INCIDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 6 September 1826

POLICE INCIDENTS. A free male subject, was charged on suspicion of being an accessary, to the late robbery in Captain Gillman's house. It appeared that the prisoner was in the service of a Mr. Morris, who desired the man to take some bags to the Wharf, for some particular purpose, which being folded and packed into one, for the better convenience of carrying, excited the suspicion of some wise-acres; the circumstance being reported on the following day, the suspected carrier was brought before the Bench to account for his seemingly mysterious bags. The master explained in a manner so satisfactory to the Bench, that the accused one was imme- diately liberated.     James Williams, free, was charged with a robbery. It   appeared that the prisoner was employed by Dr. Walker, on the Liverpool road, whose service he suddenly left with- out giving the least intimation of his intention. Immediately after the prisoner's departure, two preserved hams wer...

There is not a bullock's head in the Colony,'' if left to itself, thai would not form a better road. For in place of being made of hard materials, with a rise in the middle, and a slope to the side, we see them hollow in the centre, made of. the; softest ma terials, vlncli a single shower converts- into mud — and; from the liberal coveiing-of clay with which they arc supplied, it is po sitively beyond the power of water to escape, even though' it were so incjined.

THE GREAT NORTH ROAD. To the Editor of The Australian. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 6 September 1826

THE GREAT NORTH ROAD.       To the' Editor of The Australian. Sir,   I rode past Castle Hill a few days since, and was much gratified at seeing that the grand north road is actually be- gun, and I have since heard that it is proposed that the line shall ultimately extend from Liverpool Plains in the north, to Jervis's Bay in the south ! This will indeed be a road, and will add more to the real riches of the Colony than any measure which the government can undertake. — Let us hope to bear of no more committals of sturdy ras- cals to the inside of gaols. Sentences of 12 and 18 months' imprisonment may do very well in an over peopled country like Great Britain ; but here it is opposed to every thing like common sense, when their labour is so much wanted. The   iron gangs are a capital improvement upon our Colonial po- licy, and so long as good, free, and trustworthy overseers can be provided, there is work enough in the C...

To the Editor of the Australian. Sir, I beg to submit foryour consideration the following hints for re-constructing the ronds between Sydney and Parramatta, which re-suggested themselves to me on a peregrination to the   latter place, during the late bad weather. 1st — Kick down each of the hills (as far as the road is directly carried,) into its immediately contiguous vallies. 2dly— Mac-adamise the surface, of the whole line of road, after   it has been so prepared, with iron-stone only. , The results of these two hints, if realized would be not only the reduction- of the actual distance between the two places of several miles, but, the reduction of the distance, in   effect, to draft cattle in particular, of at least four miles; especially in bad weather; and the consequence of the use of ironstone solely, would be a compact, durable and uniform road, a road that could be relied on,; whatever might be the wea- ther. The sandstone now being us...

CRIMINAL COURT—(Yesterday.)       John Turner, alias Dailey, and Robert Kerr, were indicted for having in their possession a quantity of blue cloth, supposed to have been feloniously acquir- ed. There were no evidences to prove that the pri- soners had taken the cloth. Both men were pronounced —Not Guilty.   William Turner and John Bates were indicted for a similar offence. W. J. Browne, Esq. examined—I was present at an examination taken at the Police Office, wherein the prisoners were accused of the present charge ; I then recognised a quantity of cloth there, as forming part of the property stolen from the stores of myself and partner, Edward Aspinall, a short time before. Cross-examined—merely identified the cloth on the occasion alluded to, from comparison.

Tlie contributions with which our Correspondents have favored us, and which appear in our columns this day, arc, in our. opinion, above pur, both in point of merit and of. public interest. Road making and road mending nre ''at .all tunes matters of first rate importancev\vitli a country ; for good roads contribute very essentially, to .the growth of wealth among1 a people, and bud roads as mate rially detract from .profits and income. . Cultivators are in- reality subject to a greater disadvantage in the loss sustained by bad roads, than if a tax were im poscdon their produce — a tax equal in amount to Ihe sum expended in additional labour and additional wear and tear. The proceeds of a tax would benefit some body (intermediately 'indeed the payers of the tux) by their being- beneficially, employed on some -portion of the' public— but the 'extra, wages' which are paid — the wear and tear of gear, &c. in consequence of the hindrances which bad roads occasion, '? are en tirely...
