Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 25 December 1829

The Death Watch. The singular noise, vulgarly called the Death Watch, pro- ceeds from two different insects: one a coleopterous insect, of   a dark colour, and about a quarter of an inch in length, the anobium tessellatum. Notwithstanding its smallness of size,   however, this creature is often the cause of serious alarm   among the lower classes, from the noise that it makes; and   which they consider as portentous of death to some one of the family in whose house it is heard. It is chiefly in the advanced period of spring that these insects commence their noise; and   which is no more than the call or signal by which they are     mutually attracted to each other, and may be considered as analogous to the call of birds. This noise does not arise from     their voice, but from the insect beating on hard substances, with the shield or forepart of its head. -This insect...

Afflicting Vicissitudes. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 25 December 1829

Afflicting Vicissitudes. Amongst the next batch of convicts ordered for Botany Bay is a female, the natural daughter of a Scotch Nobleman. The history of her sufferings, from the moment she placed herself under the protection of a husband, is strange in the extreme. Of the truth of the following particulars, there is not the slightest doubt. The extraordinary nature of the case, as it was whispered about the old Bailey during her trial, led to an inquiry; and if the experience of misfortune be any ground on which to expect a mitigated sentence, in the instance of this unfortunate individual the mild course ought certainly to be adopted. Her name is Crossley, and she was tried the Session before last, for bigamy, at the Old Bailey, and convicted; and it was reported that she had been a general dealer in husbands, and was the wife of no less than, five or six men at one time. Whether she had or had not so large a number of conjugal responsibilities upon her, it is difficult to determi...
