POLICE INCIDENTS. John Newbury, John Ramsay, and John Lawson were se- verally placed at the bar on night charges, of having been found by the constables in the public streets, drunk and disorderly. The first named prisoner happening to be a free subject was or- dered to pay a fine of 5s. to the poor— his other two unfortunate companions were even obliged to put up with an order for three days exercise on the tread-mill.               Cornelius Hughes, who had been examined on a previous   day charged with divers felonies, was again brought up. It ap- peared in evidence against him, that some time since, he had pre- sented an order for payment of a certain sum of money, to Mr. Robson, merchant, in George-street; which demand was im-   mediately honored; the order having purported to bear the   signature of Dr. Bowman.

POLICE INCIDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 28 October 1826

POLICE INCIDENTS. Mary Millmaker, free, was accused of stealing from a person named Stephenson, who stated that in the course of Tuesday last he went to the house of the prisoner, and having taken a tolerable quantity of liquor, returned to an adjoining apartment, and there slept for several hours. On awakening he happened to examine his pocket, and then to his utter discomfiture, discovered that he had sustained a loss of sundry sums of hard cash, wanting in the whole about eleven pounds. Upon an enquiry being instituted one and all the parties in the house professed their entire   ignorance how such a sad mishap should have been brought about, and suggested to the loser the propriety of their being indiscriminately searched. This proposal was de- clined, on the ground that he, Stephenson, could give no very distant guess who was the perpetrator of the theft.—   He, however, accused the female prisoner now before the Bench. Upon this the woman rushed out o...

A SHORT ACCOUNT OF A FEW GOOD THINGS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 28 October 1826

-A SHORT ACCOUNT OF A FEW GOOD THINGS. GRAPES are the fruit of the vine ; which is a native of most of the temerate regions -if the earth, and is cultivated with care wherever its fruit can hf brought to perfection. Its culture is supposed to have been introduced from the East, where it is cultivated, and wine,made from the fruit, in the earliest ages;   for we are told, that Noah " planted a vineyard, and drank of the wine, and was drunken." In Great Britain, it was cultivated in 731, when Bede finished his History, and at one period was brought, to considerable perfection; for it is stated in the Museum Rusticum, "that there were vineyards in different parts of this country, from which wine was made ; and we are informed, that in the cellar, of Ardudel Castle, there were sixty pipes of excel- lent Burgundy (artificial?) the produce of a vineyard attached to the castle." But from the greater value of the ground for the   \citfuynh6n «-f qornj vinb^'aVds or...

We had begun to indulge in the belief that the rage for new-settlement forming had subsided, and that the sub-colonising schemes which might prove   practicable and useful, if carried into effect some twenty years hence, would remain unheeded, till oc. casion needed their fulfilment, or till there might be a prospect afforded of realising them without detri ment to this Colony.         The unfortunate illness- of the late Chief Engineer fortunately put a period to the folly some thirteen or fourteen months ago, and so much time had- elapsed without attention being directed that way, that we really began to think that we should not hastily see it revived. But those who have the control of these matters in England are so lamentably ignorant of the state of things here, are so misguided by the crude notions and imperfect representations of explorers, as they are called, of people, who designate themselves men of science, ...
