Circumstantial Detail, Relative to an ACCUSATION lately exhibited against JOHN RAMSAY, Settler. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 22 May 1803
Circumstantial Detail, Relative to an ACCUSATION lately exhi- bited against JOHN RAMSAY, Settler. Having with much difficulty obtained the particulars of this serious accusation, which a few weeks since occupied the public atten- tion, we esteem it our duty to present them to our readers : J. Ramsay was brought before a Bench of Magistrates at Parramatta, in consequence of a rumour having been circulated that he &nbsp; had made away with Paul Cocklin, his free servant, about a twelve month since ; and which, from subsequent circumstances appears to have been founded in malice of a man, &nbsp; who shortly after Cocklin was missing, had reported to a gentleman, then on the Bench, &nbsp; that the supposed deceased had promised to take a letter out of the country for him ; but that, from his suddenly disappearing, he had every reason to believe, he was either drowned, or in some manner made away with. This man, whose name is Desmond, ...

It is recommended to the Printer of the Syd- ney Gazette, to insert the following ex- perimental remark, intended for the in- &nbsp; formation of the inexperienced cultivator. " SIR, "From an experience of twelve years in &nbsp; this Colony, and through paying a particu- lar attention to the seasons most suitable for raising the very essential vegetable potatoes, and by which one-third of the United King- dom of Ireland is supported I recommend the planting that beneficial root as well from &nbsp; April to August, as from August to March ; and in order that I may be more explicit to &nbsp; &nbsp; your general readers, I affirm the propriety &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; of planting the above root every month in the year. &nbsp; I have often lamented at the latter end of August and throughout the month of Sep- tember to see gardens empty, and on en- quiring the cause, have received for answer, that neither potatoe...

SHIP NEWS. Sailed on Tuesday for England , His Majesty's ship Glatton, with the Greenwich and &nbsp; Venus whalers. In consequence of the &nbsp; &nbsp; intelligence brought by the Bridgewater, mentioned in a former paper, viz. that the &nbsp; Imogen had arrived at the Cape with &nbsp; &nbsp; dispatches to Sir R. Curtis and General Boyd, countermanding the instructions they had previously received to evacuate that place, Capt. Colnett does not design to touch there, but perhaps will put in to the island of St. Katharine in his way home.

SYDNEY. &nbsp; &nbsp; Yesterday arrived from the Society Islands, the Nautilus, Mr. R. Simson Master, after an absence of nearly 13 Months ; she has brought a cargo of Pork from Otheite, and has sustained no damage during her voyage. Mr. Simson informs us that the ship Mar- geret, Capt. Buyers, in consequence of a misunderstanding with the natives at the Island of Ulitea, was cut from her moorings, &nbsp; towed on shore, and violently attacked ; but we are happy to add, by the indefatigable exertions of the Captain and part of the crew, was afterwards got off, and put to sea, with loss of only two anchors and cables. &nbsp; Yesterday a proportion of Slops was issued to prisoners at public labour. On Friday the infant daughter of Rosetta Walburne died at Parramatta, in consequence of her cloaths taking fire some days before, by which accident she was shockingly burnt, and at length expired in excruciating agony.

In consequence of which, His Excellency has judged it expe dient to order the said Henry Brown Hayes &nbsp; to hard labour at the New Settlement to be formed at Van Diemen's Land; and it is to &nbsp; be clearly understood by all and every His &nbsp; Majesty's subjects resident or stationed in this &nbsp; &nbsp; Colony, that any similar meetings without &nbsp; the express approbation of the Govern...

Further Particulars RESPECTING M. PEROUSE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 29 May 1803
&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Further Particulars &nbsp; RESPECTING M. PEROUSE. &nbsp; The information given in our last, as an Extract from a French Paper, relative to the &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; supposed fate of the The French Navigator, M. Perouse, appears of have been first given by Captain Simson of the Nautilus, but with some variation from his account. The massacre, stated in the Extract to have been made in the Bay of Comshervar, on the North-west Coast of America, in 54 ° 13' N. took place in Rose Harbour, only in 52 ° 12' N. The mistake would appear to have originated in the mention of the &nbsp; young man whose fate was said to be un- known, but who was afterwards taken away &nbsp; in a small trading vessel. This youth belonged to a vessel that was actually captured at Com- shervar, where the remainder of the crew &nbsp; were put to death ; and he, du...
FOR THE SYDNEY GAZETTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 29 May 1803
FOR THE &nbsp; &nbsp; SYDNEY GAZETTE. Mr. PRINTER, In one of your publications you speak of the Trade to the Southward as likely to be hereafter carried on upon a large scale, and of its promised utility to the interests of the Colony. The justice of the remark must doubtless appear obvious to any other per- son than one acquainted with the minutæ of this trade, and the principals upon which it &nbsp; is at present conducted. From the advan- tageous situation of Port Jackson, there can be little doubt that the Islands in Bass's Straits might have been a constant source of enter- prise and emolument, properly managed, but I at present conceive, that in the course of two years more it will be difficult to clear the expences of fitting out, without the small- est allowance for risque or damage. There are now a number of parties con- stantly kept upon the different islands, skin- ing and boiling ; they mostly, if not alto- gether u...

&nbsp; SHIP NEWS. &nbsp; On Tuesday arrived from Hawkesbury with grain, the Frances colonial schooner, and on Thursday the sloop Bee. Remain as per last. BOATS - On Monday came in from Hawkesbury the William Mary, Miller; on Tuesday the Union, Jones; Hope, &nbsp; Smallwood; William, Grant and Kearns; Hope, &nbsp; Thompson; all laden with corn. By the Union the three men wrecked in Broken Bay were brought in; the particulars &nbsp; of which are contained in the preceding &nbsp; page. &nbsp; During the last week several persons resi- dent near the Hospital Wharf were robbed of poultry during the night time. It would appear that these petty depredators were at present stationary about that quarter, as on Tuesday night the fowl house of T. Andrews was plundered, on Wednesday that of Sam Warner, and on Thursday the lot fell upon Daniel McCoy. This mode of FOWL deal- ing bids fair to be of short continuanc...

&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; SYDNEY. On Monday last a Criminal Court assem- bled for the trial of Thomas Jamison, Esq. on the complaint of Mr. James Mileham, for an &nbsp; assault and battery on the evening of the 3d of May, 1803. &nbsp; At half-past Ten the business commenced, and several witnesses called by the prosecu- tor were examined. --- Mr. Jamison decli- ning to set up any other plea than that of "Self-defence," the Court cleared to delibe- rate, and were of opinion, from the Evidence, that Mr. Mileham struck Mr. Jamison first, and consequently what followed was self- defence on the part of Mr. Jamison : " They do therefore Acquit him of the Assault and Battery laid to his charge, but think it ne- &nbsp; cessary to bind him over to keep the Peace towards all His Majesty's liege subjects, and particularly towards Mr. James Mileham, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &...
