DIED. On Sunday morning last of a consumptive complaint with which he was seized very   shortly after his arrival, the Otahetan, Mouie. He came from England by the Glatton, and would have been forwarded by His EXCEL- LENCY by the first opportunity to his native   soil, whither he was desirous of returning.   During a residence in England of nearly Three Years, he was treated by all ranks of persons with that liberal hospitality for which the British Nation stands unrivalled in the Uni- verse. The last duties of humanity fell to       our share—The best Medical Assistance was     afforded him in his illness—His EXCELLEN-       CY ordered him every nourishment from his own table—and the death of this young man       is much regretted!   SYDNEY WHARF.—Yesterday morning came in four boats from K...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 14 August 1803

SYDNEY.   On Saturday the 7th instant a Complaint     came before the LIEUTENANT-GOVERNOR             and MAGISTRATES, which clearly convinced   the impropriety of a Non-attendance to His     EXCELLENCY'S General Order of Oct. 13     1800, requiring, "That no Claim of Pro-   perty be admitted by the Civil Court of Ju-   risdiction unless the Parties enter into written Agreement between each other or Enter them in Books which will be kept for that purpose, &c." W. Johnson stated to the Bench, that he had some time ago purchased a Boat of Wm.   Wall for the sum of Eight Guineas, to be paid     by Instalments, the first of which, amounting         to Two Guineas, had been regularly paid,   and the Boat taken possession of ; that the second Installment, when it became due, was   also ready, but was never called for, and still...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 14 August 1803

SYDNEY. On Friday night the roof of a thatched house on the Rocks took fire, but from what     accident cannot be ascertained. An alarm being given, several Constables ran instantly   to the spot, and perceived that the thatch was on fire, but upon entering the house saw no- thing that could possibly have occasioned it     from within. A part of the roof shortly after fell in, but the progress of the flame was hap - pily arrested by the laudable exertions of the   watch, before any material injury was sus- tained. In all probability a spark from the     chimney might have lodged in the thatch,       and owing to the calmness of the evening   have continued there several hours before the   accident became visible.

EXTRACT FROM A MONTHLY MAGAZINE. DISCOVERY OF M D'ISJONVAL, On the Use of Sp[?] as Progaotticators the W[?]. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 14 August 1803

EXTRACT       FROM A MONTHLY MAGAZINE.   DISCOVERY of M. D'ISJONVAL,     On the Use of Spiders as Prognosticators of   the WEATHER.       It is generally known that the state of the     atmosphere has a visual effect upon certain   animals, and that, for instance, cats, dogs, frogs, hogs, &c. have a very strong presen-   timent of every change which is preparing in it. The spider possesses this quality in a     more eminent degree than all other animals, and is peculiarly fit to serve as an unerring barometer. The spider says M. D'Isjonval, is a more       unerring indicator of impending change in   the atmosphere than the best barometer.   These insects have two different ways of   weaving their webs, by which we can know   what weather we are to have. When the   weather inclines to turn rainy or windy, they make the principal threads, which are the &...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 21 August 1803

SYDNEY. Francis McMahan, a constable, was on Mon- day evening last ordered by His EXCELLEN- CY into the Battery Gang at George's Head, for Wilfully neglecting to lodge in Gaol a Prisoner entrusted his charge. A curious little native Animal, partaking in appearance of the squirrel & native cat is at this time in possesion of Dan M'Coy. -- The tail is of a remarkable length, the eyes rather prominent, the breast of a deep tan colour, and the back a dark mixture. On either shoulder, a thin skin expands itself, which probably assisted in its flight or spring from tree to tree. From its hoarse droning   noise when handled or molested, it at present passes under the appellation of the Buzzing Squirrel. Some very fine Cauliflowers were last week out in a Garden belonging to Edw. Smith on the Rocks; which grew upon a raised or made soil, and some of which weighed from 10 to 12lbs. Last week an open Boat arrived from Hawkesbury, with 60 bushels of cob corn on board, for which she wen...

Judge Advocate's Office WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 17. I. M'Laughlan, Michael Downes, and I. Cassady, underwent an examination on the charge of robbing the Hospital Stores of a quantity of Wine and Sugar.   M'Laughlan being first examined, made a confession that Michael Downes, on Sun- day evening the 14th instant, applied to him for the key of the said Store, to which he had access, & that he, M'Laughlan, gave him the key three times between the hours of seven & eight o'clock : But at length passing the door, met Downes on the threshold with two bottles in his arms, and a quantity of su-     gar, which he was then in the act of convey-   ing away from the store-room. That Downs desired he would take no notice of what he saw & gave him one of the bottles which     contained about half a gallon, and emptied into his cap part of the sugar.   Downes being then called in, acknowledged having taken out of the store about half a pint of wine, but d...

To the Printer of the Sydney Gazette, [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 21 August 1803

To the Printer of the Gazette, Sydney From the prodigious increase of stock, and the now ample means of supporting and   raising them, it may not be altogether unrea-     sonable to enquire into the causes that have   been productive of the exorbitant prices hi- therto demanded for animal food. When the Proclamation of March 16, 1802, was issued by His EXCELLENCY, the real           scarcity of Salt Provision, which for a time pressed heavily on the public, occasioned a more than ordinary demand for frei[?] A rise of pence per pound on Pork was universally demanded , and, prior to the Proclamation,     as universally admitted! - - - From a current demand of 1s. 6d. the sum of 2s. per pound was required, & in fact, if we may judge by what followed, it was, when at 2s. only on   the wing, and where it was likely to perch   was wholly indeterminate. When an actual scarcity subsists, an extraordinary and some-     times an extr...

SYDNEY.     ----------------------   Before the Magistrates on Wednesday last     Rosetta White, a baker at the corner of   Chapel Row, was complained of for selling bread short of weight. Two sizes were found   in her shop, the one feveral ounces short,     and the other (for particular customers) the full weight, but both in point of quality, were a striking contrast to the name of the delinquent. In consideration of her large family, she was allowed for this offence to pass unpunished, but with a severe reprimand, and a strict caution against a repetition of so flagrant a breach of General Orders. An Animal whose species was never before found in the Colony, is in His EXCELLEN- CY's possessfion. When taken it had two   Pups, one of which died a few days since.- - - This creature is somewhat larger than the   Waumbat, and although it might at first ap- pearance be thought much to resemble it, ne- vertheless differs from that animal.
