Police Incidents. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 18 July 1831
Police Incidents'. Tuesday, July 12.—Mary Bunn, for being so com- &nbsp; pletely oblivious, at to endeavour to persuade the con- stable who took her in charge, that she was walking on her head instead of her heels, was ordered to come to her senses by a residence in the third class of the factory for one month. &nbsp; Thursday, July 14.—James Schubert, an emigrant, &nbsp; &nbsp; charged Cunninghame, and William Briffit, two con- stables, with a violent and outrageous,assault upon, his person ; he stated that a few evenings since, he was standing in the street with his arms folded talking to a female when the constables came up ; Cunninghame thrust his staff into his neck, and told him that was not the attitude to stand in before a constable, and seizing him by the collar commenced dragging him along the street, Briffit busting him smartly on the breach with his truncheon, although Schubert told them his name, and where he resided ; after they had wrea...

The Sydney Herald. MONDAY, JULY 13th, 1831. "Sworn to no Master, of no Sect am I." [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 18 July 1831
The Sydney Herald. &nbsp; MONDAY, JULY 13th, 1831. ——o—— "Sworn to no Master, of no Sect am I." We have received several letters from respectable settlers, concerning the state of the roads to the southward, one of which, we have published in this day's paper. The complaints are made, not so much on account of the bad state of the roads, as of their total absence in some places, and their circuitous route in others. They are in general bush roads, uncleared, and in the same state as when discovered by stockmen many years ago, no labour having been expended upon them, and no efforts made to discover shorter and more level tracks. By these means the numerous farming establish- ments are excluded from competing with those of other districts, in the Sydney market ; and the fine grain of the south at the distance of not more than one hundred miles, costs more in the carriage than that of Van Diemen's Land, at the distance of several hundred miles. Formerly, when the roads were in...
Cape News. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 18 July 1831
Cape News'. By the Amity we have received Cape papers to the 18th May, from which we extract the following. They are very destitute of news. The Colony appears to be nourishing, and is much excited with the discussion of the East India Company question. By the arrival of H. M. S. Undaunted, in Simon's Bay, last week, intelligence has reached town of the revolutionary principle having found its way across the Atlantic into the Brazils. It appears from a paper published at Rio de Janeiro in the English language, with the perusal of two &nbsp; numbers of which a mercantile friend has fa- voured us—that the growing dissatisfaction which had long been felt, and openly expressed of late by the people of Brazil, at the tortuous policy of the Emperor Don PEDRO, at length displayed itself in a manner not to be misunder- stood by his Imperial Majesty, and that after a few feeble attempts at reconciliation, he found it necessary to abdicate in favour of his son, a youth, which thus, in...
TO THE EDITORS OF THE "SYDNEY HERALD." [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 18 July 1831
TO THE EDITORS OF THE " SYDNEY, HERALD." &nbsp; &nbsp; Gentlemen,—As the censures contained in the letter of a correspondent of the Sydney Gazette on the 23d June, under the signature I had assumed, could not be intended to apply to your journal. I shall not under- take the disagreeable task of replying to them ; but that this gentleman should seriously talk about " his assiduity in collecting public opinion upon the point,' and yet " has failed in tracing any feeling of dread on &nbsp; the part of the emancipists and free men," to the em- ployment of prisoners as constables, must not pass over &nbsp; altogether without notice. What then, gentlemen I are the fears—the natural and anxious fea is of three-fourths of the most en- &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; lightened and public spirited in this Colony to avail nothing—is it really true that the opinions of those who have kept aloof from the violent and disaffected on the one hand, and wh...
Van Dieman's Land News. (From the Hobart Town Courier.) [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 18 July 1831
Van Diemen's Land News'. (From the Hobart Town Courier.) Mr. Sprent delivered his first lecture at the Mechanic's Institution, upon arithmetic and ma- thematics, to a very respectable and numerous audience. The lecture was interesting and in- structive. Mr. Batman, of Benlomond, lately brought in his season's shearing of wool. The greater part, if not the whole, was of an extraordinary length of staple, varying from six to nine inches ! ! ! The price of wheat at Hobart Town continues at 5s. with the prospect of a scanty supply. Sergeant White, with a small detachment of military, is about to embark, we learn, by the Charlotte, Captain Jackson, for Clarke's Island, where the future depot and Colony of the cap- tured blacks, is proposed to be formed. The ship Clyde, which left Hobart Town on the 30th January, arrived at Port Louis on the I8th March. The sheep, which Captain Munro pur- chased here at 10s. per head, were disposed of at Port Louis for £2 each.—The Nereus Capt. Goodwin, a...

Australian Printing Ink Works. NEAR SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES. GENTLEMEN of the Typographical Art are respectfully informed, that Works are &nbsp; erected near Sydney for the Manufacture of PRINT- ING INK of various colours, that will bear immediate &nbsp; hot-pressing, a quantity of which is ready for exporta- tion. Superior Ink, for fine work, at twenty shillings per pound. Orders addressed to Dr. Walker, at his Dispensary, near Sydney, will meet every attention. Since the recent improvements in the noble art of printing, by rollers and steam, added to the alteration in manufacturing paper, it is requisite that so valuable an appendage as Printing Ink should also keep pace. In order to obviate the obstructions complained of, the Printing Ink from London was analyzed, which enabled Dr. Walker to notice such particles as proved obnoxious to the press-work. The Gentlemen of the profession are now confidently presented with an article calculated to aid their exertions in...
TO THE EDITORS OF THE "SYDNEY HERALD." River Hawkesbury, Wiseman's, July 6, 1831. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 18 July 1831
TO THE EDITORS OF THE "SYDNEY" HERALD." River Hawkesbury, Wiseman's, July 6, 1831. Gentlemen,—Having been absent from the Branch for the last fortnight, from unforeseen circumstances, you have not been furnished with what I promised to you ; but probably, to be very vulgar, it may be * better late than never." I have learned thal during my absence " Wiseman's," now the fashionable resort for those who delight in the "sublime and beautiful," was visited by a great personage and his happy bride, who came hither to pass the honeymoon in sweet seclusion from the "vulgar stare." But, alas! "Point de rose sane espine," " Point d'ainour sans chagrin." Whilst bounding on the wings of love to this romantic re- treat, in one of Hart's new drags, commonly called Hackney Coaches ; and, when within about two miles of their destination, i. e. the Branch Inn, which by the way, was illuminated on the occasion, with all the variegated lamps a Vauxhall could ever boast of ; equalling, it not surpassi...

Law Intelligence. Supreme Court. ——ooo—— &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; CIVIL SIDE. Monday July 11.—Before the Chief Justice, and Messrs. Lamb and Ross, Assessors. Lynn v. Johnson.—This was an action of assumpsit, to recover the sum of eighty pounds. The declaration stated, that plaintiff shipped on board a certain vessel called the Swiftsure, a quantity of goods, and also took his passage by the same vessel, which defendant engaged was seaworthy ; after being a short time at sea, the vessel was found to be totally unseaworthy, so much so, that they were under the necessity of putting into the port of Lisbon and dis- charge, which put plaintiff to the expense of £80, and which sum he now sought to recover. &nbsp; Verdict for the defendant, the Assessors being of opinion the contract was entered into with the owners, and not with the Captain. Messrs. Wentworth and Chambers for plaintiff ; Dr, Wardell and Norton for defendant. Wednesday, July 13.—Before the Chief...
Omniana. (Continuation of English Extracts.) [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 18 July 1831
Omniana. ( Continuation of English Extracts.) CANNIBALISM.—Case of dreadful suffering.— Last week, Clement Noel, the mate, and a seaman named Athua, lately belonging to the brig Quixote, Bailachete, master, of Jersey, were landed here (Plymouth) from the smack Three Brothers, from Havre, and being ill, and in distress, were taken into the Hospital of the Poor's Portion, and placed in a ward. Noel gives the lollowing detail :— They belonged to the Quixote brig, the crew of which consisted of nine hands, including the master. Several months since they sailed for Newfoundland, from thence to Cadiz, and afterwards to St Lucie, in Spain. The brig sailed from St. Lucie on the 23d October, and after being at sea four days they experienced very bad weather. The storm continued till the 5th December, when the gale increased. After lying to for some time, they attempted to scud under the main top sail, when about half past six in the afternoon, being dark, the brig was struck by a tremendous ...
Original Correspondence. TO THE EDITORS OF THE "SYDNEY HERALD." [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 18 July 1831
TO THE EDITORS OF THE "SYDNEY HERALD." Gentlemen,—I was pleased to see the sensible obser- vations of your correspondent, signed Medicus, on vaccination, addressed to parents in this Colony, who cannot but profit by the remarks, if properly fol- lowed up. There is a prejudice against the cow pock inoculation, from whatever foolish cause it may have arisen, I am not qualified to say. That it is a certain and permanent security against the ravages of the small-pock is now proved, beyond a doubt, to the sa- tisfaction of medical men, best qualified to decide &nbsp; upon the subject. Some years ago out of 11,800 indi- viduals vaccinated at the Small Pock hospital in Lon- don, 2,500 were, by way of experiment, proved to be secured from natural small pock, by being inoculated with small pock virus, and confined in an hospital full of its infection without being effected. That in some rare instances small pock has appeared, after well defined cow-pock, cannot be denied , but in the...

Domestic Intelligence. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; ——o—— &nbsp; Thomas Moore, Esq. has presented the Church &nbsp; at Liverpool with a very handsome organ, pur- chased from Messrs. Hughes and Hosking. The &nbsp; Archdeacon was to have preached a sermon yes- &nbsp; terday on the occasion of its presentation. The &nbsp; &nbsp; inhabitants of Liverpool are much indebted to the public-spirited individual, whose liberal gift will afford them so much gratification ; his name will be enrolled as one of the benefactors of the Colony. We should like to see his ex- ample more generally followed.—We were as- tonished to read in the last Trade List an impor- tation of 20 bags of CATS. What said we to our- selves, is it Whittington over again ? but dead or alive, tabbies or tommies, " non constat ;" or hath the mischievous printer's devil converted an o into c, and gives us 20 bags of cats for the same quantity of valuable oats?—A ...

MAIZE was plen- tiful, at from 2s. to 2s. 6d. OATS, BARLEY, and RYE, a moderate quantity. DAIRY PRO- DUCE still o the rise, 2s. 6d. was asked for a quantity of fresh butter. POULTRY plentiful and reasonable. VEGETABLES abundant without any material alteration in the quotation. Onions are quite out of the market. Oranges abundant, and very cheap. The accounts from Hunter's River are flatter- ing. The Sophia Jane, steamer, brought some grain to Sydney, and has been the means of in- creasing the value of land in that neighbourhood especially waterside premises. Wheat is scarce, dear, and bad, compared to that from other dis- tricts. The young crops look strong and healthy. Maize is plentitul, at 1s. 6d. per bushel. The settlers are growing a very large quantity of to- bacco this season. Cattle are still at the late low pr...
