  At a Bench of Magistrates an investigation took place relative to the escape of three prisoners who lately went from on board the Lady Nelson in which they were to have been removed to Kings Town. When upon the examination of the master and seamen it did not appear that the fugitives were assisted by any person belonging to the vessel in their said escape; but that they had taken advantage of the deck being cleared of the people while at dinner, to make away the boat. Two out of the three namely Hogg and Tobin have since surrendered themselves but Ratty is still out of custody

169428 Ratty (Executed) James Duke of Portland 1807..... 2 March 1811 Sydney SG
 
  James Hutchinson and James Ratty executed pursuant to their sentence. Shortly after six oclock the unhappy men were taken from the county gaol and at their own request walked to the place of execution; in their way towards which they shewed no symptoms of agitation but upon the contrary appeared to be little affected by the awful circumstances in which their crimes had placed them. On their arrival at the place of atonement which was on the Sand hills east of the Brickfields, they listened with seeming attention to the exhortations of the Clergyman who attended; and inthis instance behaved with decency; but afterwards relapsed into their former apparent unconcern which they supported to the very last moment of their existence They conversed together in their last minutes; Hutchinson gave directions to the executioner respecting the adjustment of the apparatus; both made repeated frivolous observations; and as the cart was about to be driven from beneath them, they joined hands and were launched off on that posture.
