CAPE TOWN. (January 21, 1825.) (Extract of a Mercantile Letter.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 5 May 1825

CAPE TOWN. (January 21, 1825.) (Extract of a Mercantile Letter.) "Cedar, either squared or in planks, from two to six inches thick, would fetch from four to five rix dollars per solid foot; blue gum planks, from three     to six inches, three to three and a half rix dollars.     There is very little wood in our market, and a small   shipment would sell.                       "Our produce is now very low. Wines, Cape     Madeira, may be put on board at any price from £9 to £20 per pipe of 110 gallons, according as they are branded, either with Cape or French brandy.   Dried fruits may be averaged from 10 to 20 stivers, according to assortment.

POLICE OFFICE.—(SATURDAY.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 5 May 1825

POLICE OFFICE (SATURDAY.) Mrs. Eleanor Frazier, a lady of great celebrity and elegance, some add of the ton, vulgariter town, and   who has been a figurante at the Police Office during the last six months, about as often as the body of yore sat down to recite the Arabian Nights, appeared once more on Saturday last, at the earnest entreaty of her better half. Her loving spouse, whose furrowed and care-worn cheeks betokened how much he was a stranger to those fond caresses, which he vainly sought in the holy bonds of wedlock, detailed his tale of woe, in moving accents, which made the flinty hearts of all around sympathize and condole with him; the heart-   less stones, indeed, could scarcely hear him with in- difference. Tired of the hapless lot of a Coelebs, he looked around him for one with whom he might divide his pillow and his cakes, and who might cheer his hut and warm him during the winter of his life—he saw   Miss Eleanor ——, spinster, a...

QUARTER SESSIONS. (MONDAY, MAY 2, 1825.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 5 May 1825

QUARTER SESSIONS.     (MONDAY, MAY 2, 1825.) The General Quarter Sessions commenced this day at 11 o'clock.         The Chairman, in addressing the Grand Jury, ob- served, that it afforded him great satisfaction in look- ing around to see a Jury composed of Gentlemen, who by their talents, and respectability were so well quali- fied to fulfil the important duties devolved upon them.— he was however happy to state, that in looking over the calendar, he did not see anything of a peculiar nature, as likely to occupy so much of their time as they might with some reason have been led to antici- pate. With respect to the present state of the prison   gaol, he was enabled to inform them, that His Excel- lency had not lost sight of a circumstance fraught with so much importance. He alluded to the hulk which is now nearly in a state of readiness to receive those prisoners who may have been sentenced to...

ARRIVALS YESTERDAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 5 May 1825

ARRIVALS YESTERDAY.   By the arrivals yesterday we received the Hobart Town Gazette of the 22d and 29th ult. The following are extracts:—             APRIL 22. — We hear that the Council of New   South Wales is to be new modelled; no Public Officers appointed.— Sir J. Jamison, Mr. Macarthur, Mr. Went- worth, and Mr. Robert Campbell the elder, supposed to be the new Members.   Dr. Douglass, late Magistrate at Parramatta, to be Principal Superintendent of Police at Van Diemen's Land. The Hercules, Captain Vaughan, sailed from Ports- mouth on the 29th December, with 184 male prisoners. Arrived April 19 from Sydney the Colonial schooner Endeavour. It is a curious circumstance, that the ship Elizabeth, having made the River during dark, and having no pilot on board, was borne by a powerful sea breeze up to New-town bay, at the greatest risk imaginable. By this vessel Mr. P...

ENGLISH NAVAL UNIFORM. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 5 May 1825

ENGLISH NAVAL UNIFORM.   The new naval uniform, it is expected, will shortly     come out. The alterations spoken of are the doing away with white in the facings, &c. of the full dress; breeches are not to be considered as a part of full dress; but trowsers or pantaloons, with a broad gold lace down the side; the masters, surgeons, and pur-   sers, are to have, severally, three, two, and one, an-   chors embroidered on their collars, in the same manner as they are worn on the buttons of senior lieutenants, are to have a distinctive uniform; and that of midship-   men is to be so changed as to distinguish between those who have passed and such as have not. A new naval cap is spoken of as a substitute for the present   round hat in undress.       LORD COCHRANE. It is stated in the Paris papers that Lord Cochrane was admitted, on the 28th of July las...

AUSTRALIAN AGRICULTURAL COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 12 May 1825

AUSTRALIAN AGRICULTURAL COMPANY. (From the Morning Chronicle.) (The following Report of the Australian Agricul-     tural Company has been very generally circulated in London, and from the interest which the Colony of New South Wales has recently attracted, we think that no apology will be necessary for presenting it to the attention of our readers.     The great respectability of the Directors, amongst whom we observe the names of fifteen Directors of the Bank of England and East India Company, as well as many Members of Parliament, usually opposed to each other on political subjects, has given more than usual stability to this undertaking, and has excited a just confidence that it will be productive of great be- nefit to the Proprietors and the country at large. A Grant from the Crown of one million acres, may   be calculated at first to excite some surprise, but when the vast extent of unoccupied land in New South W...

AMUSING TRIAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 12 May 1825

AMUSING TRIAL. (The following amusing trial took place in the Court of King's Bench, Westminster, last December. Every body has heard of Mr. Orator, Mr. Radical, Mr. Reformer, Mr. Corn Roaster, Mr. Henry Hunt, who was confined in Ilchester Jail two years and a half for the share he took in the memorable proceed- ings at Manchester in the year 1819. On the present occasion, however, he was plaintiff, and very cleverly pleaded his own cause.). Hunt v. Newcombe. — Mr. Henry Hunt appeared in person to conduct his suit against the defendants. He stated that this was an action which be had thought proper to bring against the pro- prietors and publishers of the Boston Gazette and Lincoln Ad- vertiser, for a most gross and unprovoked attack upon his cha- racter; an attack which was calculated not only to injure his re- putation, but to ruin him effectually as a man of business; He would state, that in April last a public meeting had been called in Hampshire, to consider of the expediency of...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 12 May 1825

Letters have arrived in the Colony dated from Cheltenham, and in December. In these it is stated that General Darling was at the time of their being written residing at Cheltenham, and intended to do so until the autumn of this year. His Excellency   ELECT had sometime since taken unto himself a wife— a Miss Dumeyrick. After all — this does not look much like the vigorous and active preparations which usual- ly precede a supercession. We should not feel great sur- prise if his Lordship of the Colonies were to be consider- ate enough to wait for answers to certain letters trans- mitted to this government, requiring explanations on various matters complained of at home. For surely if it were deemed adviseable to ask questions at all, it must be equally adviseable to acquire some know- ledge of the replies to them. These we have reason to believe, did not leave this Country before the Man- gles sailed, consequently cannot yet have arrived in England, and cannot yet have be...

PRIVATE LETTERS FROM ENGLAND. (Received per Nassan.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 12 May 1825

PRIVATE LETTERS FROM ENGLAND. (Received per Nassau)     "You will recollect that so far back as June I advised you that it was the intention of the Govern- ment to recall Sir Thomas Brisbane, and to appoint Major-General Darling in his place. That inten- tion is now publicly and generally known. General Darling has been appointed, and will proceed out in the course of the spring. You know the expectations that were formed at the Colonial Office of the clever- ness of Sir Thomas Brisbane, and his fitness to pro- mote the interests and welfare of the Colony, &c. &c." "The Australian Company has at length commenced some show of proceeding. I have heretofore sent you two copies of that Company's Act of Parliament, I now forward the printed prospectus they have put   forth. I strongly suspect this will turn out a mere land-jobbing concern; and if so, Parliament and Go-   vernment will have been most egregiously duped, as...

QUARTER SESSIONS. — (Saturday, May 7.) The Chairman intimated to the Court, this morn-     ing, that in consideration of the ill health of the Chief Justice, and also the indisposed state of the Attorney- General, it had been deemed expedient (with a view to facilitate the public business as much as possible, and to   relieve the gaol of the great number of individuals con- fined therein), that the minor offences, which are now before the Supreme Court, should be handed over to the Clerk of the Peace, for the purpose of being dis- posed of by the Court of Quarter Sessions; so soon as the remaining business of the Session should be ended. In looking over the Calendar, he observed that there were only seven indictments more to occupy their at- tention; he should therefore under these circumstances   dismiss the Gentlemen of the Jury, until Tuesday next, when he hoped, that as those arrangements had been made, for the benefit of the w...

To the Editor of the Australian. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 12 May 1825

To the Editors of the Australian. GENTLEMEN, Some time ago in your valuable Paper I saw a proposition for a theatre : would not a dozen wealthy proprietors combined together do well for such an establishment? nothing could do   so much honour to Sir Thomas Brisbane as to be the founder of such an institution, for we have no public sources of recreation, and no public seminaries of morality ; for I contend that   theatres has done more good in ameliorating manners; than all other institutions existing: what could more improve our youths than a mimic representation of life ? A few plays of Shakespeare, Cumberland, Colman, Holman, Cowley, and Inchbald. These are moral play-wrights, though I could mention many more not quite so unexceptionable for the years of unsophisticated youth. Three hours recreation would supersede the bad practice of drink- ing. There old age could shake his sides, while the youngsters joined in the jocund laugh. With honest intentions, ...
