PARIS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 10 April 1803
PARIS. ASTRONOMY.--- On the 28th of August last about nine in the evening, Citizen Me- chain, Member of the National Institute and of the Board of Longitude, discovered a new Comet in the Constellation of Serpentarius. From the present position of this Comet, it may be remarked that its distance from the Sun is necessarily greater than that of the Sun from the Earth. It ascends towards the North Pole, following the left side of Serpentarius and the opposite side of Hercules. Though visible only with a telescope, it may be ob- served for a pretty long period, if its light do not suffer any dimunition.

To the Printer of the Sydney Gazette. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 10 April 1803
To the Printer of the Sydney Gazette. " SIR, " Men despising private interest have in all ages contributed to the rise of the arts and sciences, by laudably communicating to the world such discoveries as have fallen within their knowledge ; though Sir, I do not for one, absolutely despise that which points to my own benefit, yet I am not of so worldly minded sentiments as to withhold my mite of assistance, by presenting a piece of informa- tion, most probably unknown to the gene- rality of our Colonial cultivators, and cal- culated to promote the beneficial end of fruit- ful vegetation. Nature (as is admitted by the received axiom) requires assistance, it is no wonder then, that the inventive genius of man should be led to a subject every way worthy the labour which the most sedulous philosopher can bestow upon it : and it is no less worthy than just, that those remarks should be promulged for the common benefit of mankind. " I hold it a duty, which every member owes to society,...
Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 10 April 1803
Sydney. On Saturday the 2d inst. the Provost Mar- shal went with an inquest to Garden Island in consequence of a Native being shot the preceeding evening, while plundering the &nbsp; grounds of Captain Scott, at that place. Af- ter a very minute investigation of the cir- cumstance and its antecedent causes, the Jury brought in a verdict "Justifiable Homicide." The canoe of the deceased was found to be full of maize, melons, &c. taken out of the above grounds ; and although several others had assisted in the depredation, yet upon the appearance of Captain Scott's servants, they leaped into the water, and got clear off. It &nbsp; &nbsp; also appeared, we are sorry to say, that se- veral white men were among the natives, who, there is every reason to suspect, had as- sisted and encouraged them in this delin- quency but who then also escaped apprehen- sion. A fishing-boat was found near to the native's canoe, which, as it appeared withou...

EXTRACT FROM AN ENGLISH PAPER, DATED AUG. 22d, 1802. The last overland express from Bombay contains the following official letter from Mr &nbsp; Simpson, the Collector of Salfette, to the Go- vernor, dated at Verfova, Jan. 18 -- " The Harriet armed boat, belonging to this station, commanded by W. Worthey, Gunner &nbsp; of Artillery, fell in with three pirate boats, &nbsp; belonging to the port of Rajapoor, in the Cooley country, who engaged her from eight o'clock at night, of the 16th ult. till four the next morning ; and after ineffectually &nbsp; boarding the Harriet three different times, &nbsp; &nbsp; with matchlocks, pikes, and swords, the gun- ner and part of the crew boarded in return, &nbsp; and captured one boat, armed with eight matchlocks, 13 swords, several pikes, and one iron gun : The other two observing the situ- ation of their companion, set sail, and escaped. Only one sepoy was wounded, by a ball in the thi...

Bench of Magistrates. MONDAY, APRIL 11. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 17 April 1803
Bench of Magistrates. MONDAY, APRIL 11. &nbsp; This day a full Bench sat for the exami- nation of such offenders as might be brought before it, when James Hailey stood charged with having aided and assisted in stealing Meat from His Majesty's Stores, and in which he had been implicated with Robert Jillet, now under Sentence of Death. Peter Douglas being sworn, deposed, that he was an attendant at the Store, and that he had three or four times seen the prisoner Hailey (exclusive of his Ration) give pork to Jillet ; that he had seen him bring a bag which Jillet afterwards took away ; and that he had seen Jillet take pork out of the bag, which he put into his own bag, along with his own Mess. The Court interrogating him as to the quantity that might have been so given by the prisoner to Jillet, he replied, that he sup- posed it might have been from 14 to l6 lbs. and that it was in three or four pieces. Joseph Coates being sworn, deposed, that he had seen the prisoner Hailey tak...
PRIVATE CORRESPONDENCE. EXTRACT of a LETTER, dated "Lon"don, Aug. 30, 1802." [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 17 April 1803
PRIVATE CORRESPON- DENCE. EXTRACT of a LETTER, dated "Lon- &nbsp; "don, Aug. 30 1802." &nbsp; " On Thursday, the 28th of April last, Peace was proclaimed with the usual ceremo- nies, and at night a general Illumination was &nbsp; &nbsp; made, which, in point of brilliancy, excelled all that had ever before been witnessed in this Metropolis ; London and Westminster might be said to blaze. Amongst the foremost in lustre the residence of the French Ambassador stood ranked : Nor was the Bank less splen- didly ornamented ; here the transparencies were peculiarly beautiful, and more than 14,000 variegated lamps contributed to raise the admiration of the numberless spectators. From the thousands pressing upon each other, in different currents, I am sorry to add, that some have been trampled, and others crushed to death. " The Westminster Election is now just over, and the Members returned for the New Parliament are, Mr Fox and Lord Gard...
PRESERVATION OF GRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 17 April 1803
PRESERVATION OF GRAIN. A correspondent of the Agricultural So- ciety of Poitiers has accidentally discovered a preventative against the destruction of corn by insects. ---- Having occasion some years ago to repair the floor of his granary, he made use of Italian poplars for that purpose. His granary was previously infected with weevils every year, in spite of every precaution ; since laying the poplar flooring he has not seen one. The Agricultural Society at Meux, in France, has invited all those who think pro- per to make use of the following very simple method of preserving grain from weevils and other insects, to communicate the result of those trials : Soak cloths, made of flax in water, wring them, and cover your heaps of grain with them : in two hours time you will find all the weevils upon the cloth, which must be carefully gathered up, that none of them may escape, and then immersed in water to destroy them. --- A plant of henbane, placed in the middle of a heap of a c...
Sydney. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 13. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser — 17 April 1803
Sydney. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 13. At ten o'clock this morning, the New South Wales Corps and Inhabitants attend- ed at the place of execution, and Robert Jillet the Criminal under sentence of Death, and James Hailey left the Gaol ; Jillet appeared at first little affected at his situation; but when the cart reached the Provision Store, for rob- bing of which he had been convicted, he burst into tears, as he also did at the upper end of Pitt's Row, when passing by the avenue which led to his former habitation. Here the recollection of his family overwhelmed him with an anguish which, if possible, heightened as he approached the intended place of execution. Hailey had read several passages of Scripture to him on the way, to which the Criminal paid much attention, but afterwards upbraided him in harsh terms, declaring that he had not assisted in concealing the cask found in the cooperage, (the cir- cumftances of which are stated in the trial of the prisoner in our last week's pape...
