Some numerated them at 2000 per sons, all present and. bent oir seeing their 'spree' out.

To the Editor 'of The Australian.

Depraved mint be the heart, that for its own amusement, or mean and cowardly revenge, could send forth'. to tne world ouch filthy stu/f.

POLICE INCIDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 11 October 1826

POLICE INCIDENTS. Wm. Wells was brought up on Saturday, and underwent a final examination. In addition to the evidence before re-   ceived, Mr. Sparks, butcher, living opposite the house of Wells, was examined. His testimony went to prove that   he happened to pass the house of Wells about half past eight o'clock in the evening of Thursday last, when his at- tention was excited towards a groupe of persons, who were assembled in front of Wells' house. The latter was heard by witness to declare that if Hodges, who stood on the out- side, did not make off from the premises, he would shoot him. Hodges, at this time, formed one of the multitude assembled round Wells' door. Hodges gave no heed to the warning, further than retreating a few yards, which he almost immediately regained, and broke another pane of glass.   Wells desired him to desist from what he was doing;   which, however, the latter refused to comply with. Again Wells repea...

To the Editors of The Australian. Gentlemen, Brucedale, near Bathurst,   August 25. 1826.               I transmit you some sketches of the manners and cus-   toms, &c. of the Aborigines of New Holland, inhabiting the country round Bathurst, where I have had frequent   opportunities of observing those rude children of nature ; and, thinking they may be interesting to some of your Readers, who like your humble servant, are admirers of na- ture, or I should better say of the works of God.   The natives are in general tall, and extremely well formed. Their chief, who has been named Saturday, is a   very fine figure, very muscular, and his limbs are of a Beau- tiful, symmetry, he has a mind not unconscious, apparently, of his superiority over his sable brethren ; his person might be considered a good model for the figure of Apollo.—     Another native that I have seen, named Sunday, has a ...
