NAVAL ANOMALIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 12 May 1825

NAVAL ANOMALIES.         Why are vessels of the femenine gender : We   read of the King George having lost her bowsprit ; the Queen Charlotte sprung a leak ; the John Adams stove in her bulworks : the Lady Adams shifted her   ballast; the Jupiter foundered in the Gulf of Mexi- co ; and the Emperor on her beam ends. The geo-   graphical, astronomical, and political blunders are still more gross. The United States has put into Holmes' Hole; the North America bound round Cape Horn ; the Chesapeake cleared out for London ; the Massa- chusetts blown off the coast ; the Mediterranean high and dry on Cape Cod ; the Atlantic condemned as un- seaworthy ; Vesuvius capsized in the North Sea ; the Free Ocean plundered by pirates ; the Equator in lat. 69. N. ; the Globe burnt at sea; the Zenith seized for a breach of the revenue laws; the Zodiac in qua- rantine ; the Constellation under jury masts ; the No...

Advertising [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 12 May 1825

To the Editor, of the Australian. Sir, I COULD NOT BUT FEEL A LITTLE SUR- PRISED at perusing an Advertisement in your last Week's Paper, which stated that I had consented to apolo- gize to one Mrs. Foreman for certain outrages, &c. &c. said to be committed by me. I beg leave to observe that I only ad- mitted certain expressions that I made use of to the lovely Mary. When Billy and Mary attended the Police Office, the Magis- trates recommended the case to be settled, which certainly was, but not in the manner as stated in the advertisement of your paper, I am, Sir, your obedient servant,           A.

NUGAE AUSTRALES. No. III.   Botany Bay, — Point de la Perouse.     Waters of name which distant nations brand     With stigma, as th' emporium of crime ! What pilgrim, bond or free, whate'er his clime, Joys not to tread your vast' encircling strand ! Oh !

"Hence will I sail   On this day, and by that I shall arrive     At yonder port :" — nor felt his heart misgive,   Dooming him thence the hero of a tale       Still buried in obscurity.
