CORONERS INQUESTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 2 June 1825

CORONERS INQUESTS. A Coroner's Inquest was held in Sydney Gaol on the body of John Murphy, a prisoner confined in one of the cells, where he had been nineteen weeks fed on bread and water. It appeared from the evidence given by the deputy gaoler, and prisoners con- fined in the same cells, that the deceased complained of being ill three days previous to his death, and wished to see the doctor, who never attended till some time after he expired. The doctor being informed of his being ill, sent him TWO PILLS and some medicine, without knowing or inquiring his complaint. The jurors had accesss to the different cells, and shocking to relate. there were six and eight prisoners confined in one cell, without air. Nor had they been let out for air only within these three weeks. Were it hot weather it was the opinion of the jurors that a pes-     tilence would be caused.

TO OUR READERS. Oiir'attention-liasbecn drawn to an -Article wlucli-appearecl in out Paper last week, headed a' Cvmou.s Battle,' and which we received from a Correspondent in the course of the Tuesday. Unsuspicious of any meaning that might jurk beneath the sur face of several expressions therein used, and considering that it was merely a humorous description of a cammoruboxing rencontre, with the. common- .boxing phraseology, we readily gave it inser tion. We think it necessary now to advert to that article, not so much for own sakes as in justice to others, owing to its having been distorted by many into an interpretation quite opposite to what we could possibly liave anticipated, quite foreign to what we imagined it possessed on the cursory reading we gave it. We are hurt at our own imprudence in assigning the ' Curious Battle' a place in ' The AusTnAi-iAN,' as being in every sense of the word unworthy of our publication. This expression of regret is but small amends, it is howev...

TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS. Some delay has unavoidably occurred in bringing out ' The   'AUSTRALIAN" twice a week. This delay is entirely owing to the arrangements in the Printifig Office not having been quite completed. We cannot conveniently carry into effect our con- templated design without a further addition to the number of our COMPOSITORS. The want of such addition cannot now be of long duration, as we have very recently received advices from England informing us that a shipment of hands for us would take place by an early conveyance after Christmas — conformably to instructions which were given from an anticipated scarcity of good Compositors in this Colony.   Our Sydney Subscribers are requested to pay no Bills pre- sented to them for 'THE AUSTRALIAN' and for ADVERTISE- MENTS, unless they be printed, and signed A.

The first that were made, were so heavy that they weighed two pounds, being fastened on a kind of cushion, such at they knit lace on j-thc caw 1, by which they were much Kghtencd, being a subsequent improvement.
