DANDIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 28 July 1825

DANDIES. The dandies, or, as they were called, braveries, of the times of James 2d and the two Charleses, in England,' would appear to have surpassed their successors of the present day in the extra vngnncc and richness of their fashions. iTellow doublets were indispensable for tliem at one period, with great roses, that is, libbands gathered into a knot an. the form, of that flower and fas tened on the instep. These' were, in many instances, of enor .mous'size/ and very costly, jilt was also, the fashion to nourisb'a favourite lock of hair, to make which more conspicuous, a rose'ot knot of ribbands was sometimes attached to it. The practice was 'so rcote'd that it flourished for near a century in spite 'of all the ridicule of the stage and of the press. The form ofs these loie~lochs was -{is various and capricious as that of the beaids, which_were, as is well known, trimmed into a number of ^fantas tical shapes. It was a great point to determine whether the love-locks should be ' w...

HOW TO SOFTEN ROCKS! [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 28 July 1825

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 28 July 1825

The, Court of Inquiry, as it is termed, but more properly speaking, the Secret Inquisition at Govern ment House, Parramatta, is in the midst of its serious labours— -its profound investigations into the matters in dispute between the Reverend Samuel Marsden and Dr. Douglass. The eagerness of the public to know     what is going forward, is just what might be ex pected, where any non-sensical fuss is made, or where any extraordinary means are adopted to ensure con cealment when curiosity has been raised. Had it been possible for any good, to arise out of an inquiry conducted by a Court constituted like this '' Court of Honor,'' the sitting with closed doors would have been the most effectual mode of preventing such a result. But, in truth, we neither expect good nor evil ; and we see no reason why the public should give, themselves any concern about the matter. The only question, we conceive, to be decided by this Court is —   Place or no Place!...

MILLS AND STEAM ENGINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 28 July 1825

MILLS AND STEAM ENGINE.     The Freemasons resident in Sydney and other parts of the Colony, were invited to form a processional at Parramatta, and assist in laying the first Stone of Mr. Raine's Mills, &c. A Bullock was roasted on the occasion for the populance, and a Cold Collation pre- pared for such persons as were 'present by invitation. The Governor had been solicited to honor the party with his presence and to Christen the Mills. His Ex- cellency, declined, on account of the Sitting of the Court at Government House ; but suggested that   "The Darling Mills" would be an appropriate   name. We are informed that this name was accord- ingly conferred. We wish Mr. Raine may succeed in his undertaking, as it is likely, that the Settlers along   the Hawkesbury will experience the benefit of it.

LOSS OF THE MARY OF LONDON, ON JER- VIS'S ISLAND.               This fine little vessel, under the command of Capt.   Edward Read, belonging to the firm of Bennet and   Son of London, left Gravesend on the 1st May 1823, upon a whaling voyage. After touching at several   ports, she left Christmas island, in these seas, situated in about 160 W. Long, and 37 N. Lat. and proceeded on her speculative voyage. On the 20th of the same month (three days afterward), the weather being very hazy, accompanied with torrents of rain, at about   2 h. 30 m. A. M. a man from the main top descried land, and immediately gave notice of it to those be- low ; at this time the vessel was running before the wind at eight knots per hour, with studding sails set, steering in a course between south and west, and the sea running awfully high.

SERIOUS ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 28 July 1825

SERIOUS ACCIDENT.     A very melancholy accident happened on Monday     morning by the overturning of the Eclipse Coach, on leaving Sydney. The coach was proceeding down   the Brickfield Hill at rather a quick pace, when a bul lock cart suddenly crossed the road. The coachman endeavoured to avoid it by, pressing forward at an en creased rate, but was unable to effect his purpose. The coach came in contact with the cart, and after hanging on a balance for a short distance, fell over with a tremendous crash which broke in the side. One man, a musician of the band of the 40th, was killed almost on the spot; for he died within a very short time after he fell — his skull being fractured. Another is not expected to survive; and three or four   more are most dreadfully bruised. There were six teen persons on the outside, and six inside. Eleven of them were of the 40th's band, who were proceeding to assist in the ...
