  The United Kingdom from Liverpool 25 May arrived on Tuesday last with 482 bounty immigrants under the superintendence of two surgeons Messrs Boot and Tracy. About two weeks after leaving Liverpool the measles broke out among the children on board; thirty eight infants died from it and other diseases, but all the adults were fortunate enough to escape it. There are some cases of sickness on board at present, but none of them are of an infectious nature. The ship is the largest merchant vessel that has ever entered the harbour of Port Jackson being upwards of twelve hundred tons register she is North American built and was originally intended for a steamer. Her cleanly appearance between decks evices the interest Captain Eshelby took in the health of the large number of immigrants placed under his charge. He has been out to this Colony once before and no doube the surgeons owe the healthy state in which the ship has arrived in a great measure to his experience.

174187 Frost Margaret United Kingdom 1841 Letter dated 3 April 1848 Jerrys Plains NMH
 
  Marriage was not always easy of consummation during the first half century of the colonys history, owing to the special circumstances of its settlement. In the case of minors, there was much delay sometimes in obtaining the required permission. The following letter illustrates that fact: Newcastle, 3rd April 1848, To Rev. James Cooper, Parsonage, Jerrys Plains, Sir, I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your letter respecting the marriage of John Hanse and Margaret Frost, and requesting my sanction thereto as the magistrate appointed by the Judges of the Supreme Court to grant permission to minors under the Act 2nd Victoria No 13; and in reply thereto, I beg to refer you to the 3rd clause of that Act, where the power is vested to the magistrates only when the minor has a parent or guardian residing in the colony. Should the minor, Margaret Frost be so circumstances, - or, in other words, have no father, mother, or guardian residing in the colony - it will be then necessary that she personally applies to the magistrate legally qualified to grant such permission to marry, who may be nearest to the district in which she lives and before whom she will be required to make oath as to her being under age, and unaware of any impediment to her being married. This is the course pointed out by the Act alluded to and I have entered fully into an explanation of it, under the opinion that you may not be actually in possession ofthat ordinance. It is however to be found in Callaghans second volume of the Acts of the Governor and Council, page 872 copies of which must be in the possession of the Court of Petty Sessions nearest to Jerrys Plains as also of the Act itself. I have to express my regret that so much time has elapsed since you communicated personally with me on the subject of the marriage in question, which your letter of the 24th ult brought to my recollection and I have to apologise accordingly. I am etc. J.H. Crummer - Newcastle Morning Herald 15 March 1911
