The Black Natives. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 28 August 1829

The Black Natives     We were last week misinformed in stating, that the natives had visited the dwelling-house of Mrs. Smith, at the Tea Tree Brush, and that they had carried off an infant, belonging to Mrs. Roberts, but had not injured it. It appears, however, upon information in which we can place reliance, that they had attacked the house of a settler, named Thomas Howard, at that settlement. Upon the approach of the tribe, a woman, who was living in the house, which is situated within a mile of Mrs. Smith's residence, deserted the house from fright, and alarmed the neighbours. When she returned with the people, she found the house plundered of a bag of sugar, and other articles, and one of the black natives carrying away in his arms the child, which, upon one of the men hallowing to him, he dropped. We are exceedingly glad to find this marked instance of humanity, in this savage race of Aborigines, who had an opportunity of destroying the infant, if so...

Assassins. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 4 September 1829

Assassins« i It is with feelings of sincere regret, we communicate to our numerous Readers, upon the authority of one of our Con- temporaries, that this Colony, hitherto the abode' of peace and tranquillity, with the exception of occasional alarm from the Bush-rangers, has now changed its character ; and, like certain of the Italian Slates of the last century, has become the theatre of " ASSASSINS !" Bqt this, bad enough of it- self, is not all; for we farther learn, upon the same autho- rity, that an individual, who has passed througham'any jears'' of sojpurn among us, with" as much honor and credit to him- self, as benefit to the State, has been selected hy these wicked .men for their first victim, and that he is absolutely in fear and terror from their machinations.-So good, useful, and nowa- days, pious a character, can surely have no causé to appre- hend assassination upon the ground of any evil committed by himself; and. if so cruel' a fate should unhappily befall him from any...

A Captain Poisoned! [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 4 September 1829

A Captain Poisoned !   On Sunday last the barque Navarino arrived in port from   Calcutta, with the Commander of the vessel, Captain PETER   BROADFOOT (a Gentleman well known to many of our rea- ders), a corpse. It appeals from the most accurate infor- mation we have been able to obtain, in the absence of the evidence of the Coroner's Inquest, that the deceased was taken ill, together with the rest of the persons, inclu- ding a Miss BERRY, a passenger, who messed in the cabin,   on the 12th of August last. Conceiving that poison had been administered to them, either in their tea or othef wise, they all immediately took emetics, except the Captain, which had its desired effect of removing the poison from their stomachs. Captain Broadfoot did not however use this pre-     caution ; but, on the contrary, supposing he was attacked with, the Cholora Morbus, instantly took brandy and laudu-   nam, b...

Fatal Duel.

He fell, in a duel with a Captain HELSHAM, of an Irish Militia regiment,   in consequence ol some provoking and insulting- conduct, which   could not be overlooked in an officer of the line. The par-   ticulars we shall give in our next, but so unexpected was this   melancholy affair, that Dr CROWTHER had received letters from     him of so late a date as the 25th of Match last. He was 6th   son of the late PHILIP WYAT CROWTHER Esq., Comptroller   of the City of London , and had been sixteen years, in His Majesty's service during a part of which, he had passed with   the regiment in India, whilst under the command of his bro- ther in law, Lieuten...
