NATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 16 October 1803

NATIVES. On Sunday last a number of Natives as- sembled on a ground at the upper end of Pitt's Row, with a design of inflicting pu- nishment on two men who were directly or     indirectly concerned in the assassination of two others who died of their spear wounds.   About an hour before the sun-set the parties made   their appearance, and were received by their friends and partizans, who presented each   with a target or Erolemon as a defence against the missile assaults of their adversaries, who instantly arose and approached the in- tended victims of an ungovernable antipathy   and rage. One of these, known to us by the   name of Musquetto, was the first assaulted,       and he with surprising dexterity defended himself against 64 spears all thrown with     rancour and malignity, and 17 of which   went through the target, some to a depth of nearly two feet. The 65th and last thrown at him entered the calf of his right leg, and penetrated six inches throug...

Uncovered Wells. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 16 October 1803

Uncovered Wells. Last week an infant three years old, fell into a well, and must have perished undisco-   vered had not one of the parents at the truly critical juncture accidentally gone to draw           up a bucket of water. When taken out it appeared to be totally exhausted with strug- gling, but in a short time he happily recovered.     Such an accident however distressing to the   feelings of a parent or every person else,   yet cannot be confidered as surprising ; but on the contrary it is rather a matter of sur- prise that such instances so seldom occur. The trouble or expence at laying a cover over a well would amply be repaid in the convenience it affords; and no excuse can     possibly be admitted for the neglect : for supposing even that no danger could arise     from their remaining uncovered, yet it would contribute to the cleanliness and coolness of the water ; but when the life of a single in-   fant is...

New Bridge. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 16 October 1803

New Bridge. The extremes of the Arch are turned to   the center stone, and the labour of the work- men must be lightened, and consequently   their exertions forwarded in proportion as the     mound inclosed within the walls approaches to its necessary height. On Monday last Mr. Underwood ordered     his cart and horse, out to assist the work of filling; and several other respectable inha-   bitants have since similarly contributed. So           spirited measures cannot be sufficiently ap-         plauded : - - Though indeed it could scarcely be imagined that so useful a structure could     be rated without an assistance as portioned   to this magnitude. If the assistance of those   who are immediately to benefit by its com- pletion be actually required; as it must actu-     ally appear voluntary tender is by         far the most acceptable, a...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 16 October 1803

S Y D N E Y. The inclosure of the Tank, undertaken by Government, will when compleated consider-   ably improve the Town in its appearance, and render universal benefit in the preserva- tion of its excellent stream Every appear- ance of rubbish has been removed from its sides, and the chrystal current flows into the   bason with its native purity. A dam secures it from the heaviest falls on the side that lay exposed, and a high pallisade will cut off all access to the stream, save from the superflax of the grand Receptacle.   Mr. Oliphant, master of the Endeavour, belonging to Messrs. Kable and Underwood,     reports the Natives of New Zealand to be very friendly, and ready to render every as- sistance he could possibly require. This   peaceable and amicable disposition has ma- nifested itself in several instances and we doubt not that upon the return of Tyeena, who was brought hither and taken back by Captain Rhodes in the Alexander, his re- port of the hospitality he ...

HOT WINDS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 16 October 1803

HOT WINDS We are sorry to state, that the Hot Winds   prevalent on Sunday last were productive of     very disagreeable consequences at Parramatta,     Prospect, the Northern Boundary, and places adjacent, where many fields have sustained a severe blight, Several Orchards in and about Parramatta shared the same fate: Upwards of 10,000     Peaches fell to the ground in a single gar-   den, and many trees have lost their promising appearance. We have received no accounts which can authorise an apprehension on the part of   Hawkesbury; and we sincerely hope that the     injury sustained at the above places may have been exaggerated before it reached us.   The Thermometer at Parramatta was at   92 ° in the shade at midday, and nearly the same height at Sydney. The Wind all the morning was at W. N. W ; at half past one       it changed to S. S. E. in a violent gust at the commencement of which the Thermometer fell from 92 to 70 degrees in less than ten mi-   nut...

To the Printer of the Sydney Gazette, [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 16 October 1803

To the Printer of the Sydney Gazette,   " SIR, Amidst the abuses of the times I esteem that of liberal indulgence as one of the most     prominent, and consequently the most deserv- ing exposure. The benefit derived generally from the distribution of Sugar by Government at a mo- derate charge continues to be felt and acknow- ledged as a truly salutary accommodation, and as an immediate interposition between necessity and actual want. This consideration should be ne-   cessarily operate as an argument against the   lavish use of the commodity, but by no means as an opening to sinister speculation,   which always levels at the poor. On the day of application preceding the last, an Order for a proportion was obtained under a pretext of "family necessity; but       as quickly as obtained was nimbly converted into considerably more than cent per cent. nett profit. Disposed however, to make everv reasona- ble allowance for a WILLINGNESS TO   OBLIGE, a readiness to serve an ac...

SHIP NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 16 October 1803

SHIP NEWS.         On Wednesday arrived His Majesty's Armed     Tender Lady Nelson, from Van Dieman's     Land, having left Lieut. Bowen and those   under his Command in perfect health, and   making every progress their number will     allow of. The accounts received from thence speak   highly of the great local advantages of that   Settlement, which the Commandant has named   HOBART.   Further Supplies of People and Provisions   will be sent in the course of the ensuing week by the Dart and Endeavour. Lieut COURTOYS brought the stuffed skin of an animal hitherto entirely unknown,     together with some specimens of new Birds,   and several very fine black Swans alive.     - Close to the Settlement are abundance of     Emues, large Kangaroos, and Swans.   Remain with His Majesty's Armed Tender       Lady Nelson, the vessel as per...

PRACTICAL REMARKS ON THE Management of a Dairy. CHOICE of CATTLE for the PURPOSES of the DAIRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 23 October 1803

PRACTICAL REMARKS ON THE Management of a Dairy, CHOICE of CATTLE for the PURPOSES   of the DAIRY.   Here a question arises which has never yet     that I know of, under one discussion. In     consequence of the idea having for long pre- vailed, that all the varieties of cattle were   originally derived from the same parent stock, it was never once suspected that these va-     riaties could differ from each other in re-   gard to great characteristical distinctions. It       was, for example, generally believed that all sheep carried wool of some kind or other, unless in as far as (according to a vague no- tion that prevailed respecting the influence   of climate) it had been affected by the cli-       mate. It has how been proved, that this notion is erroneous, and that in the same   climate and in the same field, may be kept   sheep bearing fine wool, coarse wool, long hair, short hair, and m...

New Battery. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 23 October 1803

New Battery. The New Battery at George's Head is compleated, and the artificers and labourers   are recalled. The front is circular, measuring 84 feet or 3-i3ths of a circle, 36... feet circumference, the platform or area of which, hewn out of a solid rock, is about 56 feet above the level of the sea. The Battery mount fix guns, two long   twelves on the right, two of the same size on the left and two short sixes in the center.   The first of these command the Bay inward If, those on the left command the entrance     of the Harbour between the Heads; and   those in the centre point across the channel. Such is its position as to Command in each direction every vessel entering or quitting       the Harbour; and its height is a natural barrier against assault.         Only four of the guns are yet mounted ; the carriages of the remaining two are un-   dergoing a repair.

To the Printer of the Sydney Gazette, [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 23 October 1803

To the Printer of the Sydney Gazette, " SIR Calculated as exposure is to correct abuses I submit to your notice one that should be discouraged, as it gnaws the very VITALS of       the poor.   When His EXCELLENCY'S General Order, assizing the standard weight and quality of Bread appeared, two kinds were made and       sold, but, by that Order a wholesome restric-         tion was imposed, forbidding the baker to         make any quality but one, for which also ONE price alone should be demanded. The scarcity then prevalent, which rendered   the Regulation the more immediately neces-   sary does not thank Heaven exist at the         present juncture, and therefore a strict ad- herence to the intent and meaning of the Ordinance may not perhaps be very rigidly         required ; yet the present abundance can by   no means constitute an argument for carrying   on the business in downright opposition to     every Order, as well as to ev...

SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 23 October 1803

SYDNEY. On Monday evening a boat belonging to Wm. Vaughan was seized for going along- side the Investigator at an improper hour contrary to General Orders. On Wednesday Nine Prisoners were em- barked on board the Endeavour, for the New Settlement on Vandieman's Land, but were debarked the same day owing to contrary winds. Wm. Deighton, yesterday fon'night ap-   prehended on suspicion of purchasing the   Ration issued to prisoners, was liberated the   same evening, on condition of appearing to     answer to the charge if called upon.         The mode adopted of issuing the sugar im-   ported by the Castle of Good Hope, was ill   received by the cent per cent club. In fact   an equal distribution at a moderate charge   must ever militate against them, when a limi- tation of figures is requisite. Capt. McLennan procured a number of ...
