POLICE OFFICE.—(TUESDAY.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 3 February 1825

POLICE OFFICE.—(TUESDAY.) Some discoveries have been made, in the course of this week, respecting the second robbery on Mr. Josephson's premises. In consequence of information the chief constable searched the house of a man called John Griffiths, and found part of the stolen property; Griffiths dropped some hints, which induced the Police Magistrate to grant a warrant to search Mr. T. H. Hart's house. When the constable saw Hart, he asked him if he had not lately purchased some articles   of jewellery. &c. describing the sort of things he meant; Hart immediately said that he had, and gave them to him. An examination was partly gone into this day at the Police Office. All the parties were remanded.           To the Editor. — Sir, — As .you have distinctly disclaimed the   particular application, which the generality of your readers, I believe, attached to your observations on "'Valedict...

If a man. chose to return to his native country, he might live there in the full enjoyment of those blessings which ihc few qualified persons are attempting to wrest from us in this colony, arid that too without its being tauntingly asked, ' Is that man a convict ?...

MODERN IMPROVEMENTS. Amongst- all the improvements of the age,' none perhaps-arc more striking than those .which have, re cently been made, and indeed are at^present making, in the lammasfe of ordinary' life. It is not ' merely by the introduction ot toreigrt words and nhrases-into the-1' English' tongue, nor the designation of places of amusement, or-shopsi or carriages, by ajieri titles, that this great 'alteration is workings but by the adoption of figurative phraseology' and eleg'ant expressions, which bid fair to rival the formal foppery of Eupheuism. Who in these days ever reads of boarding-schools ? Thejr arc transformed into academies for boys, and seminaries for. 'girls ; the higher'classes are ' Esta blishments'— ra coach-maker's .shop is a 'Repository for Carriages' — a milliner's a 'Depot1' — a thread seller's an ' Emporium.'
