Sydney Gazette, 1831

Found in these papers were Grants of Land published "for general information, in order that all Parties concerned may have an opportunity of correcting any errors and omissions, which may have been made inadvertently." I will go back and extract them and the corrections. So, if you find something of interest you had better read on incase there was a correction.

The Mary Jeane adds nothing to our stock of European news, as she left England seven days earlier than the date of our latest papers. She sailed on exactly the same day as the Craigievar.


The Elizabeth, from New Zealand, has brought 35 tons of flax, which proves that the flax trade, contrary to current report, is still alive. We suspect the rumour was set afloat for sinister purposes.


For Liverpool
The fine river-built Ship Medway, Borthwick Wight, Esq. Commander, Burthen 500 Tons, Two-thirds of this vessel's cargo is ready for shipment on her arrival at Hobart Town, from which Port she is under contract to sail on the 20th January for Sydney; her stay here will not exceed 14 days.

Government Notice
Colonial Secretary's Office,
Sydney, January 10th, 1831,
It is represented to the Governor that the Regulations laid down in the Government Order of 28th May, 1830, No. 6, are very generally disregarded, and that Settlers, Overseers of Gangs, and others, continue to permit Convicts to proceed from one Place to another, either without any Pass, or with a very irregular one, notwithstanding the very great facilities which such a practice must evidently afford to Runaways and Bushrangers.

His Excellency has therefore directed, that all Convicts whatsoever, who may be found at large after the 31st of this Month, either without Passes, or with improper ones, shall be immediately apprehended; and that, if private Servants, they shall be detained in the Service of Government, instead of being returned to their Masters; and if they be already employed in any Public Gang, that the Overseer shall be dismissed.

The prescribed Form of Pass is herewith republished for general Information.

By His Excellency's Command,
Alexander M'Leay.

The Governor, having reason to believe that notwithstanding the Government Order, No. 48, of the 9th October, 1829 many of the remote Farms and Stock Stations in the Colony are still left in the charge of Convicts, who frequently afford protection and assistance to Bushrangers, His Excellency has judged it expedient now to order, that no Settler or Individual whatever shall be allowed any Convict Servant, or any other Indulgence from the Government, who has a Farm, Stock Station, or separate Establishment whatever, that is not under the immediate and constant superintendence of a Free Man, or of a Man holding a Ticket of Leave, whose name and condition is to be recorded in the Books of the Bench of Magistrates, nearest to the place at which such persons shall be stationed; and the Magistrates are hereby requested to report to the Colonial Secretary, from and after the First Day of February next, every Farm, Stock Station, or other Establishment, within their respective Districts, which may not be under the actual care and constant superintendence of a Free Man, or Ticket of Leave holder, accordingly....
