LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 22 August 1845
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. &nbsp; BEGGING IMPOSTOR.—On Friday last a man named Thomas Belfied was brought before the Police Magistrate under the following circum- stances.—He had prepared a paper soliciting as- sistance to bury his wife, who, he stated, had died in child-bed. The names of various gentlemen were on the paper as subscribers for his assistance. Some benevolent ladies being anxious to interest themselves for the man's children, went in search of his abode, but in vain ; the wife's death and other distressing circumstances detailed by him, turned out to be mere fabrication. Mr. Price sentenced him to three months' hard labour. We notice this case to warn the community against indiscriminate charity, as similar imposition is con- stantly practised. STORM ON THE NORTH COAST.—Thc violent gale which was experienced on the 8th instant, was the cause of much injury to those residing on the north coast. All whose occupations or dwellings &nbsp; were in the forest fled ...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. ANOTHER ACCOUNT.-APPREHENSION OF JACKY JACKY.—On Thursday morning Mr. Pillinger, who resides in the neighbourhood of Antill Ponds, observed a fire in a gully, and suspecting from re- port that Jacky was in the neighbourhood, pro- &nbsp; ceeded with great caution to the place, when he discovered a man sitting before a fire roasting double-barrelled gun and other fire arms. Mr. Pillinger returned and procured the assistance of three other persons, and approached within about seven yards of the man, when they presented their pieces, and Mr. Tillinger said " Hollo my man,you are roasting some mutton." Jacky, for it proved to be him, turned round surprised, and said " Yes, I am." He got up, and was walking leisurely towards his fire-arms, when Mr. Pillinger told him to stand, or he would blow his brains out, and at the same moment another of the party se- cured his arms.
