Loss of the Barque DESPATCH by Fire at Sea. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 25 March 1839
Loss of the Barque DESPATCH by Fire at Sea. Tue Governor Bourke, whaler, which arrived in port late last evening, brings the melancholy intelligence of the total loss by fire, of the barque Despatch, Cap tain Pritchard, which left this port for London on the 2nd instant. The follow ing is Captain Pritchard's account of the catastrophe in a letter to Messrs. Cooper and Holt : GEtTLEgMEN,-On Monday; the 11th instant, at 8 a.m., I perceived a strong smell of fire, and ordered the scuttle of the after cabin to be taken off, to ascer tain the cause. Upon raising tne scuttle, a dense volume of smoke arose and filled the cabin. I then ordered the, scuttle of the fore-cabin to be raised, which gave egress to a body of smoke; on perceiving which, I ordered both scuttles to, be in stantly caulked down, to prevent, as much as ,possible, the accession of air; I now feared the attempt to extinguish the burn ing wool would be fruitless; at noon the smoke increased. Our latitude 33 27 7 south, lon...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 25 March 1839
Extract from Captain Sturt's Report of Strange's Creek. &nbsp; The creek is approached over a flat on which there is six feet water at low tide, the creek varying in depth from two to four fathoms, and is perfectly navigable for boats, not having any shoals in it. It is nearly three miles from the entrance of it to the Para River, but is navigable for boats to within half a mile. P. S. March 1.-Since the above was written, I have had the pleasure of receiving from Mr. Lind- say (of the firm of Hindmarsh and Lindsay, sur- veyors.) who is now engaged in surveying the ex tensive tract to which my notes refer, a communi- cation, from which the following are extracts: "At daylight this morning (Thursday, Feb. 27) we entered a beautiful inlet about one hundred yards in width, having four and five fathoms inside for a distance of half a mile, where it divides into two branches, each branch having a depth of water running from two to three fathoms for some dis tance.

NEWS OF THE DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser — 25 March 1839
NEWS OF THE DAY. Major Barney has, it is reported, made a calculs tion, that the water now enclosed in Mr. Bushy's tunnel, will, at the present rate of the town's consumption, last twelve months without rain. The tunnel is itself a large reservoir, to wit, six miles long. Its depth and width we cannot distinctly state, but we suppose it is equal to a six-feet cube. The French opera company of four performed on Friday night, for the second time, to a good but not a full house. The boxes and gallery were full, and the pit half full. They were much applauded. In the compass of a watch-paper, Mr W'ilson of York.-street, engraver, has embodied in a neat copper-plate engraving, the whole of our shipping signals, with all needful explanations. Inserted in the ea'e of a watch, or pasted in a pocket book, every merchant and shipping clerk, can, at all parts of the town whence the new flag-staff is dil cernible, ascertain the description of vessels signal izing.
