LOSS OF THE SPITFIRE, LIEUT. CAMPBELL. COMMANDER. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 2 April 1803
LOSS OF THE SPITFIRE, LIEUT. CAMPBELL, COMMANDER. The Spitfire was wrecked on a reef which is off the Southern part of some African Islands, Aug. 21, 1801, at 10 min. past 5 in the morning: she was then going about 4 knots under her foretopsail, and had sounded often during the night, and no ground with 20 fathom line a short time before she struck. &nbsp; &nbsp; On her striking her masts were immediately cut away to prevent her oversetting, and soon after she was driven over the Reef into a kind of sandy bason, and at low water her crew were able to walk on shore; most of her stores &nbsp; and provisions were saved. On the 27th of August Lieutenant Campbell with four men, quitted the Islands in a small boat belonging to the Schooner, with a view of procuring &nbsp; relief from the Seychelle Islands. On the &nbsp; 29th about 9 A. M. they saw the principal &nbsp; Island, and arrived there on the 31st at 5 &nbsp; &nbsp; &...

To the PRINTER of the SYDNEY GAZETTE. "Two-and-forty Miles from Town March 28. "SIR, [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 2 April 1803
To the PRINTER OF THE SYDNEY &nbsp; GAZETTE. " Two-and-forty Miles from Town &nbsp; &nbsp; March 28. SIR, "My neighbours having adopted an &nbsp; economical plan, which I myself have fallen into, I would wish, for the benefit of society to fee it sanctioned by an appearance in your Paper. " As our worldly concerns have frequently called us to Sydney and other parts of the Country distant from our habitations, we were necessitated to invest the partners of our cares with uncontrolled dominion in our &nbsp; absence, for which we have a right to plead, not only an established custom, but a case of indelible necessity. " Unfortunately however, it has happened, that as some of us are BON VIVANTS our wives are so likewise, and as they were compelled to redouble their vigilance when alone, &nbsp; they claimed a right to redouble their devotion &nbsp; to Bacchus or his substitutes. Upon our return, we seldom failed to dis...
Court of Civil Jurisdiction. M0NDAY, MARCH 28. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 2 April 1803
Court of Civil Jurisdiction. MONDAY, MARCH 28. This day the Court met (per adjournment) and proceded among others, in determining the following causes: SHERWIN v. M'CARTHY. &nbsp; This was an action brought by the plain- &nbsp; tiff to recover the value of 14 bushels of wheat due to him under the following cir- cumstances. &nbsp; The defendant had agreed to reap and thresh a certain portion of land belonging to the plaintiff, on consideration that he should receive half the profit of the standing crop. A short time after the wheat had been got in, the plaintiff slept several nights in the defen- dant's house, and was then informed that the produce had amounted to from 42 to 45 bu- shels, good and bad, a great part, of which was then in the defendant's loss. As McCar- thy seemed at that time, to urge, that the grain contained a quantity of grass-feed and other rubbish the plaintiff offered to take the whole, and to allow the full Store-house price ...
SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 2 April 1803
SYDNEY. Mr. Moore's report of the new-discovered wood, stated in our last to have a resemblance to the Lignum Vitae, has confirmed our ac- count of it, and a quantity is accordingly to be sent home by the GLATTON. ____________ &nbsp; On Sunday morning last T. Biggers rode to town from Hawkesbury, a distance of more than forty miles, within the space of three hours, having left the latter place at 7 o'- clock, and rather before 10 arrived safe in Pitt's Row. &nbsp; ______ On Monday last permits were granted for a great quantity of porter, brought by the &nbsp; Bridgewater. It was purchased at about Two shillings and three-pence half-penny per gallon, and is retailed at from 5s. to 6s. --- a MODERATE ADVANCE, as it is cer- tainly of an excellent quality. On Monday last George Patterson (a la- bouring man), was picked up in the Back Row, apparently in a state of intoxication. He was taken into a house and put to bed, but some hours after was found cold...
Directions for making Vinegar. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 2 April 1803
Directions for making Vinegar &nbsp; &nbsp; Boil a quantity of water an hour, and when &nbsp; it is cold, put to every gallon of water one &nbsp; quart of ripe currants, which have been picked from the stalks-and bruised with the hand, stir it frequently for two days, then put to every gallon of liquor a pound and &nbsp; a half of brown sugar; when it is dissolved and well mixed, put the whole into a barrel, &nbsp; &nbsp; and place the barrel in a warm place till &nbsp; &nbsp; currants are ripe the following year, when the &nbsp; vinegar will be ready for bottling. N. B. you must paste a paper over the bung-hole of the barrel, and make a few &nbsp; small holes in the paper. Coarse muslin is better than paper. &nbsp; The acid currant of New South Wales will &nbsp; make as good vinegar as the currant, and &nbsp; which by the above method makes the finest vinegar in...

Court of Criminal Jurisdiction. APRIL 9. At ten o'clock the Court opened, and RO- BERT JILLET, Labourer, stood indicted, for that he, the said Robert Jillet, on the 6th day of April, in the year of Our Lord 1803, at Sydney, in the Territory of New South Wales, with force and arms, 77 Poundsweight &nbsp; of Salted Pork, value 2l. 10s of the lawful money of Great Britain, the Goods and Chat- tels of Our Sovereign Lord the King, out of &nbsp; the shop or out house adjoining His Majesty's Stores at Sydney aforefaid, then and there being, feloniously did steal, take, and carry away, against the Peace of Our Sovereign Lord the King, His Crown and Dignity, and against the Statute in that case made and pro- vided.

Court of Civil Jurisdication [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 10 April 1803
&nbsp; Court of Civil Jurisdiction On Monday last a Court of Civil Jurisdiction assembled for the trial of special Causes, among which, the following appeared some- what interesting : WRIGHT V. JAMES This action was brought in consequence of a verdict granted by the Civil Court to &nbsp; George Salter, whereby the plaintiff Wright, who stood as defendant in that action, was to pay the value of 104 bushels of Wheat, for which it appeared to the Court he had rendered himself responsible ; yet with the exclusive privilege of bringing an action of indemnity against this defendant (Mr. James), under whose care, as it was then argued, the Wheat was, when it sustained a damage which reduced its value one half. Upon a nice and minute investigation of the transaction it appeared, that the above quantum was intended to be lodged in the Parramatta Store by the plaintiff, for and on the account of Capt. Scott (to whom Mr. &nbsp; James was agent). The wheat ha...
DUBLIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 10 April 1803
DUBLIN. The melancholy fate of the ingenious Mr. Spalding has not, we find, deterred others &nbsp; from exploring the recesses of the deep by means of the diving-machine or bell, as on Tuesday last Mr. Healy, of James-street, de- scended from a vessel in our bay, which was for the purpose moored, over, the spot where, some months since, a large Cumberland col- lier had been sunk. He continued immersed one hour and three quarters, during which a fresh supply of air was introduced into the bell by means of a pneumatic engine worked on the deck of the vessel, and communicated by a tube ; a method more efficacious and less hazardous than the sinking of air-casks, as hitherto practised. His object was to as- certain the practicability of raising the sunken ship.
