Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor — 2 February 1829
DEATA. THE Death of MR. ROBERT HOWE, Propri etor, Editor, and Printer of the eldest Colonial Journal, The Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser, occurred on Thursday even- . ing last, by the upsetting of a boat, in which, in company with his infant child and a servant, at the mouth of Sydney Cove, he had been taking the pastime of angling. We thus have the painful duty to record the. death of an eccentric but worthy man, who, had his education and bringing-up not been entirely neglected in his youth, wou'd have been a. brilliant character both in mind and heart. MR. ROBERT HOWE was the son of the ate Mr. George Howe of this Colony, a per- son of good family long resident in the Is- land of St,.Kitts, and where the King's Press of that Island had been in their hands from time immemorial. Mr. Robert Howe, in the early period of his life, through a want of pa- rental energy and foresight, was left to grow up wild and uncultivated., His pursuits led all men at that time, to cons...

PRIVATE SUDDS LATE OF THE 57TH. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Monitor — 2 February 1829
PRIVATE SUDDS LATE OF THE 57TH. (THE strictures in The Australian of Tues- day last., were unusually acute and lawyer like. We cannot help, the subject being so melancholy and important, making the following extracts. ED ) " ADMITTING however, that Sudds was pre- viously suffering under a complaint suficient to occasion death--was an extraordinary pun- ishment-was an iron collar, with projecting spikes, calculated to improve his health? Was a time of illness the proper period to select for passing a man through the ordeal of pain and ignominy? Was a burning sun likely to bene- fit his 'state of body? or the beating of drums which sounded his deradation, con- ducive to the composing a mind enfeebled by disease, racked by a sense of shame and the prospect of misery, and stung by the reflection that his punishment was ILLEGAL ! If 'then, he was previously ill, what was more likely than all this to hasten Sudds to his grave ? And that it did not produce that effect, not all the contradi...

'To the Editor of THE SYDNEY MONITOR ? &nbsp; Being desirous of, purchasing a piece of ground, with a hut upon it, I urge the proprietor, a starving old soldier, to apply for a lease - and His Excellency granted the request forthwith, endorsing on the memorial, to make out a lease for the Veteran. The ground was measured accordingly, and his name registered, but neither lease nor memorandum of the Register can be obtained, though nine months have elapsed since the application was made, and the pro- mise obtained. &nbsp; &nbsp; The delay proves fatal to the ole man, and a loss to .the publioc' the f?ormer requires the -price of his premises tq. procure him food and raiment; and as the old hut is ,'not in sugi4ient repair to shield him from the weather, he has to deprive himself of part of his scanty pension of 6d. per day, to pay for a lodging.
