MEETING OF THE PUBLICANS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 2 February 1826

MEETING OF THE PUBLICANS. Pursuant to a Public Advertisement which appeared in The Australian of lastweek, a meeting of the Licensed Victuallers was   held at Hill's Tavern, on Monday, for the purpose of taking into consideration the propriety of presenting a petition to the Governor in Council, praying his Excellency to remove certain restrictions under which this body of the community is now labouring.       At half past twelve o'clock Mr. Hill was voted to the chair. The Chairman opened the business of the meeting, by stating that he held in his hand a requisition (which, he then read). He should be very desirous of hearing any gentleman   who might feel disposed to address the meeting on the subject for which they had been assembled. The speaker felt happy on seeing so numerous and respectable a meeting on the present oc- casion ; their object, he conceived, was not simply confined to their individual interests ; b...

THE LOVES OF THE "NIGERS." BREACH OF PROMISE OF MARRIAGE, New Paltz, Ulster County, United States. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 2 February 1826

THE LOVES OF THE "NIGERS" BREACH OF PROMISE OF MARRAIGE New-Paltz, Ulster Countu. United States. Phillis Schonmaker v Coff Hogeboon. This was an   action for a breach of the marriage promise. The parties, as their names indicate, are black, or, as philanthropists would say, coloured folk. Counsel appealed on behalf of the lady. He     recapitulated many verdicts which had been given of late in favor of injured innocence, much to the honor and gallantry of an American Jury ; he trusted that no injurious impression would be made on the minds of the Jury by the colour of his client. She was black, it was true; so was the honored wife of   Moses, the most illustrious and inspired of prophets. Othello the celebrated Moor of Venice, and the victorious general of his armies was black, yet the lovely Desdemona saw "Othello's visage in his mind." In modern times we may quote his sable Majesty of Hayti, or, since that country has become a re...

No title [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 2 February 1826

The laxity ivlnch has hitherto prevailed in . the aystem of assigning prisoners to settlers and others has, 'in no trifling degree, conduced to. many ill con sequences throughout the Colony. It has not only* as we hinted last week, contributed to increase trie number of Bushrangers, but has -counteracted the good results which might Iiave proceeded from a dis tribution- of prisoner-servants among the Colonists. The wealth and influence of some of the settlers have oc-' casioned distinctions', and aninequality in the judicious distribution, to the great prejudice of the people at large; whilst the inability or unwillingness of others to provide prisoners with necessaries, pursuant to the expectations and regulations of -Government, have often diiven the industrious and well intentioned into .the Bush. This was a statfl of things which required' examination and amendment. .Strict impartiality would correct one part of ihe evil; while, a prudent exercise of precaution, would have gone ...

APPREHENSION OF BUSHRANGERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 9 February 1826

APPREHENSION OP BUSHRANGERS. 'From information received at the Police Office, that some ' bushrangers had been observed lurking in the bush within a few miles of Parramatta eight consta bles were despatched in pursuit, on Saturday -night last, by order of the Superintendent of Police. Arriv ing at a place called Haslem's ground about mid night, they advanced towards a house from whence the voices of the enemy could be indistinctly heard;   a few minutes sufficed to ascertain their numbers and position, and an immediate and determined attack was resolved upon. A constable named Jilks, at the head of one party, burst in the door at the back part of the house, whilst Chapman instantaneously effected the like in front. The cry "to arms, to arms, my boys,"   vociferated by'a man named Patient, who had been   sitting, near the back door, as if on guard, roused those within. Five desperadoes then rushed forth to opppse the constables, each man well pr...
