PRISON DISCIPLINE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 4 August 1825

PRISON DISCIPLINE. 'Prison discipline, like the criminal law, is a matter of uniyei-u . sal interest; rind wliat Jilackstone, borrowing from_ Foster, Tins said of the latter, is equally true; perhaps more -strikingly .try*:,* of the former; ' no rank or deration in life, no uprightness *6f heart, no prudence or circumspection of conduct should tempt a man to conclude that he may not 'at/sorne time^or .other be deeply interested - in these v researches?' 'The infirmities of the best among us, the, vices and ungovernable passions of others, the instability of all human 'affairs, and the numberless unforeseen eventsjwhich the compass of-a day may, bring forth,', should pre vent any one from being secure, that he himself, or those in whom he is most 'deeply concerned, may not at some period or otlie'r become the inmates of a prison, and subject to its regula tions. Tliis is a motive which all may fedl ; but no reflecting man needs^ny Ihingso painful to excite his interest in the questio...

It consists of a rone made of -strips of un tanned -hide, varying in length'- from fifteen to twenty yards, and is about as thick as the little finger. It has a noose or running-knot at one end, the other extremity being fastened by an eye and button to a rinj/ in a strong hide belt or 'suicingle, bound tightly round the horse. The coil is grasped by the horseman's left hand, while the noose, which is held in- the right,' trails I along the ground,' except when in use, and then itis whirled round the head with considerable velocity, during which, by a peculiar turn of the wrist, it is made to as sume a circular form ; so /hat, when delivered front the hand,, the noose preserves itself/open till it falls over the object at which it has been aimed. , , The ...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 4 August 1825

The futile Iabours of the Commissioners at Parra matta ceased on Thursday last, after a wearisome and unproductive investigation of fourteen days. We hope that Lord Bathurst in future will be more circum spect in prescribing duties of this nature to the Official Gentlemen of the Colony. His Lordship's want of     knowledge of the state of the Colony, and of the oc- cupation of those high Characters whom he selected for the purpose of conducting the late inquiry, is the *jnjjj excuse i tlinjt can be pleaded for seeing' onVfoot \thui coprfcc df'pracedth-e, or intermeddling- with'iriat-^ tors' which ought not to have been noticed at all, un less*noticcdiin:a manner that'tnight have- led to tangi ble results. ?

NORFOLK ISLAND [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 4 August 1825

NORFOLK ISLAND. The accounts from this renovated penal settlement are rather of an interesting description. H. M. Cut- ter Mermaid, Captain Penson, arrived in the Cove from thence last week, after a stormy passage of thir- teen days. Considerable progress has already been made in arable cultivation. Six acres of wheat are   in the ground, three acres and a half of maize. Po- tatoes, cabbages, peas, and other varieties of vegeta- bles, are planted, and every thing bears a very pro- mising appearance. The surface of the whole Island was overspread with grass, four, five, and six feet high. Guava trees are in great abundance, as also orange and lemon trees. The coffee plants flourish most luxuri- antly. Some of them are seen bearing not less than four or five bushels of coffee. Pine trees of a very fine size, are numerous. The various animals have encreased to a wonderful extent—such as pigs, fowls,   pigeons, &c. The pigs are very large. &nbsp...

AN EARTHQUAKE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 4 August 1825

AN EARTHQUAKE.   I went in the evening (says Captain Hall in his journal, writtcn on the coast of Peru, Chili, &c.) to visit a family in the Almendral, or great suburb of Valparaiso. The ladieswere   ranged, as usual, along the wall, in a compact line, with their shawls drawn over the head and across the chin, so as nearly to conceal the face. One young lady played the harp, another the guitar, while some occasionally joined with their shrill voices, in singing the patriotic songs of the day. Others were chatting, or working, and the evening was passing away pleasantly enough, when, without any apparent cause, the whole party jumped up, cast away their music and work, and flew in the most frantic style out of the house, screaming aloud, Miscricordia! miscri- cordia ! beating their brcasts at the same time, and looking ter- rified beyond description. I was astonished at all this, but fol- lowed the company into the street, calling out Miscricordia as...

BUSHRANGERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 4 August 1825

BUSHRANGERS.   Recent advices from the Settlement at Newcastle state that the bushrangers in that neighbourhood are increasing in numbers, and are continuing their out- rages with a good deal of success.   Since the publication of our last statement, respect-   ing these desperadoes, five men have absconded from Mr. Boughton's farm, at Paterson's Plains ; for the   purpose, it is supposed, of joining Mr. Jacob's men. One man has run from Mr. Cobb's farm, and one (and only one) from the town of Newcastle; so that, if   they coalesce, they will form a desperate gang, of   eleven, all well armed; and who declare they will never be taken alive. It appears that Captain Allman has done every thing in his power towards getting the banditti taken. Eight soldiers, accompanied by several black natives, have been sent in pursuit of them.           &...
