To the Editor of the Australian. MR. EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 11 November 1824

To the Editor of the Australian MR EDITOR, Having observed in the columns of a Sydney news- paper, paragraphs stating that the real teak-wood had been found growing in this Colony in great abundance, I was induced, a few days ago, to visit the estate of Claremont, where this most valuable timber of India was said to have been recently discovered, with a view either of confirming fully the discovery (as it was   called) of Mr. Panton, or of ascertaining what was   the description of tree to which that gentlemen had applied the name of teak, which it should seem has been hitherto appropriated to the rudest of purposes ! The Claremont tree in question, with which (be it said, in justice to the modesty of the report, which limited the growth of the plant to its area) not only that interesting estate; but the neighbouring country abound, proved to be a described, but unpublished species of eucalyptus, very generally known and dis- tinguished throughout the Colon...

COURT OF QUARTER SESSIONS. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 6. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 11 November 1824

COURT OF QUARTER SESSIONS. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 6     Richard Porter, convicted on Wednesday of re-     ceiving certain teas, the property of Mr. Jacob Joseph-   son, knowing the same to have been stolen, was brought up to receive the judgment of the Court. A memo- rial was presented, signed by some of the most res- pectable merchants of Sydney giving the defendant an excellent character for integrity and industry.—                         Chairman, in passing sentence said that it had its due weight. He was ordered to pay a fine of £25 to the King, and to be imprisoned until such fine be paid.   James Welsh was indicted for stealing 13 lbs. of flour from John Hankinson on the 2nd of Sept. last. The prosecutor, it appeared, had, during the illness of his ...

THE LATE GENERAL MACQUARIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 11 November 1824

THE LATE GENERAL MACQUARIE. Major General Lachlan Macquarie was born on the 31st of January, 1762, in the Isle of Mull, in Ar- gyleshire, in North Britain. He received his first commission in the army on the 9th of April, 1777, when little more than 15 years of age, and immedi- ately joined his Regiment (the 84th Foot) in North America, and continued to serve there and in the West Indies until the conclusion of the American war in 1783. Remaining at home from the above period until 1788, he then went out to India as the Senior Lieu-       tenant in the 77th Foot, on which establishment he remained for 17 years; and was one of the Indian army from Bombay, which served in Egypt under Ge- neral Sir David Baird, during the French invasion of that country by Buonaparte. At Bombay he held suc- cessively the following staff appointments ; namely, 1. Paymaster of the 77th Regt.; 2. Major of Brigade to the King's troops; 3. Deputy Paymaster General to t...

On the following Wednesday saw the prisoner   offering three pair of boots for sale to one Peter Quigley, in Market-street, knew them to be his pro- perty, and therefore claimed them; prisoner gave him the boots, said he had bought them in the Market, and offered him two other pair to compromise the matter. Witness took the five pair, and immediately carried them to Mr. Dunn, the chief constable, who apprehended the prisone...

THE HERO'S DEATH—FOR LIBERTY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 18 November 1824

THE HERO'S DEATH — FOR LIBERTY. THERE is a crimson hue Of purer, lovelier dye,       Than beams in blushing clouds that strew     Soft evening's radiant sky —         'Tis in the life-blood of the free,   Poured nobly forth for liberty !         There is a voice more sweet         Than music's softest lyre.             That bids a livelier pulse to beat,     And wakes a wilder fire; —           It is the death-sigh of the free,   Who fights and falls for liberty !     And there's a louder sound     Than earth asunder riven,...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 18 November 1824

The Act for the incorporation of an Agricultural Company has, by this time, been pretty well conned over by most of our Readers. We inserted it at full length in order that it might bear witness for itself of what it really is. It is or has been, rather generally thought that this extraordinary piece of legislation would work wonders for the Colony — that the pro-                 gressive importance which had been going on for some years had received a sudden accession in the estimation of the Mother Country, and that England had all at once deemed us worthy of some peculiar marks of at- tention, and resolved to afford an uncommon stimulus to our industry and prosperity. No prevalent opinion was ever worse founded. Ministers must either have been hoodwinked and duped by artful men, or they have committed this folly to serve some of their under- lings. We will first, however, exami...

To the Editor of the Australian. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 18 November 1824

To the Editor of the Australian. SIR, I would beg you to direct a small portion of your attention to the consideration of the situation of settlers on Hunter's River; the far greater proportion of whom came to this country under the auspices of the Secre- tary of State for the colonies. In the two counties of Northumberland and Durharn, there are threes magis- trates only; the first a captain in a marching regiment; the second but a short time sold out of one; and third third a young gentleman of property. None of them have had the advantage of co-operating with magis- trates more experienced than themselves; and however excellent their intentions may be, the more reflecting and high principled of the settlers do, I truly affirm, feel great anxiety from the danger of suffering, under the effects of that inexperience. One of (I had almost said) the most respectable of the landholders, a lieu- tenant on half pay, had two of his men punished and turned into Government employ—instigated...

To the Editor of the Australian. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 18 November 1824

To the Editor of the Australian SIR, It is highly gratifying to myself, and must be so to every in- dividual who has the interests of the Colony at heart to behold in your Paper, sentiments so independent and appropriate on the selfish and dictatorial spirit by which a party have been       actuated in their hostility towards the inhabitants of this most   enviable part of British territory, in attempting to deprive them of the invaluable privilege of trial by jury. The jury question, as decided by the Chief Justice, with your pertinent remarks thereon, protrudes itself upon our notice in a very auspicious light, and must be extremely grateful to the mind of every en- lightened individual. On the other hand, a decision so just and conclusive, must be increasingly mortifying to the avowed ene- mies of British freedom, who plot to "Gather strength and force unwilling awe."— And aim at making     &nbs...

SHIP NEWS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 18 November 1824

SHIP NEWS Sailed on Saturday evening the ship John Bull, for China and   the Mauritius.           On Sunday the brig Queen Charlotte for the seal fishery.   On Monday morning the Prince Regent, direct for England. On Tuesday the Lord Liverpool Packet, on her first trip to Newcastle. She had on board fifty passengers, and three horses. She went off in good style— she seems to be a clipper, for she sailed out of harbour with the wind almost an end. The no- velty of the occasion attracted great attention, and many persons assembled on the Quay to witness her departure. The crowd of passengers who were on deck almost reminded us of those fuming machines — the Margate steam vessels, or Cockneys' delight. The accommodations which this Packet affords, seem likely to promote and increase the intercourse between Sydney and New-   castle. Individual undertakings of this magnitude deserve en...

To the Editor of the Australian. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 18 November 1824

To the Editor of the Australian. SIR,                       I observed in a Sydney Paper of the 28th ultimo, an in- vidious observation respecting the teak wood discovered on my estate. In that paper a quotation is made from a work entitled "Oriental Commerce," which quotation may or may not have     been correctly made. The author, I must say, evinces an almost total ignorance of the subject on which he treats. I am well aware of the anxiety of our botanists to have the New Holland teak metamorphosed into what is vulgarly called bastard box, and by dint of mere sound to impress on the public mind that the wood in question is of inferior quality; but, without calling in question their botanical knowledge, I must beg leave to remark, that what is called bastard box is the younger tree, whilst the old is simply denomin...

SCRAPS FOR THIS CREDULOUS [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 18 November 1824

SCRAPS FOR THE CREDULOUS. On the night of the 27th of May, as Francis Prout, coomb captain to the Friendly Mines Company at St. Agnes, was returning from the Church Town on busi-   ness, he had to pass through the Old Pink Mine, he missed his way and fell into a shaft twenty fathoms deep, and in which there were ten fathoms of water. He sunk, but rose again to the surface, when by great presence of mind he supported himself by placing his back against one part of the shaft, and his feet against the other, until seven o'clock next morning, when a girl fortunately passing by heard his cries for help. Assistance was immediately procured, and the unfor- tunate man drawn up. Strange as it may appear, he was able to walk home without assistance, and appa- rently had sustained no kind of injury ! An Irish labourer, near Richmond, in Virginia, who was blowing rocks at 200 feet below the surface of the earth, had prepared his match for a blast, and   was ascending i...

CUMBERLAND SPRING ASSIZES.—(ENGLAND.) BREACH OF PROMISE OF MARRIAGE. W. C. HOBSON V. ANNE ISMAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 18 November 1824

CUMBERLAND SPRING ASSIZES.—(ENGLAND.) BREACH OF PROMISE OF MARRIAGE.                           W. C. HOBSON v. ANNE ISMAY. The plaintiff, Mr. Hobson, was a respectable young man, re- siding at Temple Sowerby, in this country, and engaged as a dealer in corn, seeds, &c. In the early part of 1823 he became acquainted with the defendant, Miss Ismay, and visited her with the consent of her mother, a widow lady, who resided at   Brackenlands, near Wigton. He would show that this intimacy increased to such a degree, that on the 23d of July in the same year, Miss Ismay looked upon the plaintiff as her future husband.   In order to give the Jury an idea of the kind of feeling which existed between the parties, he would read to them a part of the correspondence which took place between them. ...

MURDER OF MR. BRACKFIELD. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 25 November 1824

MURDER OF MR. BRACKFIELD. LIVERPOOL, Nov. 22. — On Saturday the 13th inst. about noon, news arrived in Liverpool that Mr. John Brackfield was murdered at his farm, at South       Creek, and his house plundered. Mr. Throsby, with his usual and praise-worthy activity, immediately des- patched Mr. Ikin, the chief constable of Liverpool,   to ascertain the particulars of the fatal circumstance. On Mr. Ikin's arrival at the residence of the deceased, he found a jury impannelled, who, after viewing the   body, adjourned until Monday. Mr. Ikin found the     deceased had been assaulted in his bed, and, from ap- pearance, had received a dreadful wound upon the   head, as blood was seen upon the bolster of the bed.   It seems it was thereon he received the first blow, af- ter which it appears he was dragged from the bed to   the floor, and there strangled.

SYDNEY, NOVEMBER 25, 1824. The arrival of the ship Minerva has nothing material to the English News previously received in the Colony. Politics in England, by all accounts that have reached us, are represented as being exceedingly dull and uninteresting. The Cape of Good Hope Newspapers have furnished us with intelligence from India and the Mauritius, as well as from the Cape. The most important parts of their contents we have extracted and laid before our Readers — they are up to the 29th September inclusive.     Last week we took a cursory review of the general tendency of the Agricultural Company. We will now glance at its local aspect and peculiarities ;— and certes if on general principles, the incorporation of this Com- pany is to be deprecated,— disastrous, indeed, will be its products if the first blossoms of the tree afford any indication of the fruit which is to follow. Could any reasonable doubts have been entertained of the real designs of those...
