    TICKETS OF LEAVE CANCELLED.—

    John William Hawkins, Roslyn Castle 2, (1833), for highly disgraceful and immoral conduct; Commissioner of Crown Lands Office, McLeay River.

    DESPERATE ASSAULT.—A native of India, named Sheik Hassnoo, was on Thursday taken on a warrant for a desperate assault on a youth, the son of Mr William Meadows Brownrigg, the Surveyor, of Macquarie, with a dagger. He was remanded for examination on Saturday.

    DISORDERLY CONDUCT.—Joseph Anderson and Mary Ann Selkirk, both ticket-of-leave holders, were brought up on Friday, charged with having passed themselves as man and wife, on the Sydney road, at a public house where they sought a lodging. They were both discharged with a reprimand.

    STEALING FRUIT.—John Harrison and William Ashbourne, the former about ten years, and the latter about eight years of age, were on Friday brought before the Police Bench, charged with stealing a quantity of pears from the garden of Mr Morris, of Church-street. The prosecutor had found them in his garden at about five o’clock in the morning, helping themselves to his fruit; but as he did not wish to press the charge, but only to give them a warning for the future, the bench discharged them with a severe reprimand, promising them a sever whipping if they should again come before the Court.
