CRIMINAL COURT. (Friday.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 6 October 1825

CRIMINAL COURT. (Friday.) Wm. Chapman was tried for the wilful murder of Sarah Allen. It appeared in evidence that the prisoner, William Chapman   had been drinking at the Green Man public house, in George street, in company with several labouring men assembled there to receive their weekly wages, on the evening of the 29th of May last. About eight o'clock the deceased, Sarah Allen, entered the room where prisoner and the others were drinking; she ap peared ill, and rather inebriated. On deceased asking prisoner to leave the house and return home, he rose and struck her several blows on the head. Some of the by-standers succeeded for the   time in preventing further violence, but upon deceased leaving the room, the prisoner already sufficiently intoxicated, followed her and repeated his blows. She fell—upon which prisoner gave     her a kick ; he then returned into the house. On coming out again and observing deceased bleeding and ...

THE RACES. (Third Day.)   With the diversions of Thursday last, terminatecl the Races for this Season. Horses and Owners have now seven months to recruit in, and make further ap- proximation to excellence in Training and Racing,     which we shall never cease to hold up to the estima- tion of the Colony as a source of wealth, and a means of improvement.     The munificent present of the Governor, at the eve   of his departure, was made the most of. The Fifty Pounds were run for as a Handicap Stakes, that being in the opinion of the Stewards the most eligible way of producing Sport. They were not deceived — the congregated crowd of Spectators were not disappointed. Handicap Stakes do not seem to be very well under- stood by some of the Sporting Gentry.

BUSHRANGERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 13 October 1825

BUSHRANGERS. On Monday week last the Bushrangers of Hunter's River (our Newcastle Correspondent informs us) were put to the rout. Serjeant Wilcox and privates Wright and Coffee got intelligence of the haunts of these men, and entered on the pursuit accordingly. On approaching within 200 yards of a hut on the farm of Mr. Spark, at Wallis's Plains, they observed a     man issue from it. Their suspicions were awakened, and on his giving the alarm to persons inside, they were assured that they were correct, and that he and his comrades were bushrangers. The Serjeant fired into the hut. Patrick Riley, a bushranger, came out, and before he could be laid hold of fired twice on the soldiers; one of whom, Coffee, returned the fire and shot him dead on the spot. Two others had also come from the hut. These stood looking on till Riley fell. They then made off. Cleary, one of them, was afterwards taken; as also a man called Price, who surrendered himself as soon as Ril...
