Details:John Guy attached to the Engineers Department charged with being found in Rev. Wilton s kitchen without any business there. Rev. Wilton testified....On Wednesday morning last about half past two I found the prisoner in my kitchen. I asked him what he was about there. He said he had been sent by the overseer of the iron gang out on the Hill for a light for his pipe. I told him I did not believe him and ordered him off the premises. I could scarcely get him away, he being reluctant to go and in my opinion as soon as my back was turned he could have come back again. I followed him to the gate threatening him with the watch house. On calling him to stop when he got on the fence that I might ascertain the truth of his story from the overseer, he would not stop and I called out to the sentry who came down from the Hill and gave him in charge of the overseer who took him to the watch house. The overseer denied ever sending him to my kitchen. It would appear that Monday afternoon last he was also about my premises and I strongly suspect him of having delivered a verbal or written message from someone to my female assigned servants who on the night of that day on my premises got drunk and subsequently punished for the same. A few days ago he was detected in delivering a message to a former female assigned servant of mine who had been convicted when in my service to an assigned servant named William Barr who had also been in my service and who has since been sent to an iron gang under those circumstances.. I strongly suspect that the prisoners has been in the habit of communicating with my assigned servants...Patrick Byrne (Burns), overseer to the iron gang then testified....Never in my life sent the prisoner to the Rev. Wilton s kitchen nor would he stop on Wednesday but when Mr. Wilton called him. Guilty. Sentenced to 75 lashes and returned to a road party

Details:Correspondence from Sir John Jamieson regarding his assigned servants James Archer and George Biddles who shot two bushrangers John McDonald and Joseph Lynch at his cattle station on the Namoi. Patrick Tye a ticket of leave holder and stockkeeper to Edward Cox favourably mentioned as having apprehended twenty eight bushrangers and also William Thomas per ship Asia 10, assigned servant who assisted in taking the bushrangers......Notwithstanding the local knowledge of McDonald and his gang enabled them to escape the vigilance of the mounted police for a few months, still their existence appears to have been that of wretchedness and fearful alarm for their safety. McDonald and Lynch were absent from my station eight weeks and three days and from their expectation that the mounted police would closely follow their track, their progress down the river must have been rapid and the distance they penetrated into the interior very considerable. They described with terror to William Thomas the great number, gigantic stature (seven ft in height) and ferocity of the native blacks who they said threw the spear from the hand by its centre and at first from such a distance as to penetrate but little deeper than the skin of their horses, but that afterwards they became so bold as to seize and pull round their horses by the tails and added that the weather was so wet during the attack that their fire arms would not go off; for their protection from the above statement and the anxiety with which McDonald and Lynch enquired of William Thomas if he had seen any of their horses return that way especially a grey mare of Crawford s, it may reasonably be inferred that the report is true which Nutty the Namoi chief received from the native blacks viz, that one of the gang of white robbers had been shot by their own party and two tumbled down (killed) by the natives which would account for the destruction of the whole of McDonalds party which never exceeded five.....George Biddles aged 32 per ship Asia (10) under sentence of transportation for 14 years, a native of Leicester and formerly a marine in his Majesty s naval service gave an account.....I landed in the colony on 26 June 1833 and was assigned to the service of Sir John Jamison in March last; I proceeded to Capita, to his new stock run on the Namoi River. .. Joe Lynch was described by George Biddles as a tall thin man about six feet high, fair hair, and an effeminate voice and apparently about five of six and twenty years of age; he wore a pair of black trousers, buttoned up the front, a fancy coloured shirt, a fustian shooting jacket and a muslin cravat, a pair of half boots, and a straw hat; the shirt and trousers he boasted of having taken from Mr. Robertson. They all called McDonald by name and acknowledged him as their chief; McDonald was about five feet seven inches in height, dark complexion, black hair and whiskers, a scar on his nose and slightly pock marked, stout made, and about six and forty years of age; wore at this time a blue jacket, blue waistcoat, duck trousers, a pair of laced half boots, cut in several places, and a straw hat. Crawford the other bushranger wore a fustian shooting jacket and trousers, half boots, and a straw hat, five feet nine inches in height, of swarthy complexion, stout made, and stooped much with his head forward; about 30 years of age. The fourth bushranger was described as a good looking dark haired man, who stated himself to be a Welshman; he was about five feet eight inches high, wore a fustian jacket, dark waistcoat, slop blue trousers, half boots, an a straw hat; he appeared to be four or five and twenty years of age and seemed to be a quiet backward man, not well satisfied with his situation. The fifth was a short man, five ft five inches.....I (George Biddles) had some conversation with John McDonald during the night; he related the sundry robberies he had committed and boasted the most of all in having wounded a police man who had charge of one of his party whom they captured; he told me he came to this Colony in the same ship as myself the first time she came; he further stated, that he had held the indulgence of a ticket of leave and lost it; I recommended him to give himself up to the law, he said no, I know my doom if taken. I will therefore endeavour to get out of the country which I shall try to do in following the river. He added that the police could not be more than a day or two behind and desired me to tell Sergeant Temple that McDonald and his mob had gone down the river and that they would leave track enough for them. James Archer addressed himself during the night to Lynch and said what a pity it is that a set of fine young fellow like you should be running yourselves to the gallows in this way; McDonald looked at him and replied, gallows is it? the gallows will never catch Mac, when I die, I die by a ball; Lynch then added the rope will never be made that will hang Joe; the following morning they all breakfasted by daylight, having previously sewed up in bags upwards of 3cwt of flour; they examined the five unloaded muskets and returned them to us also a pistol which was out of repair. From their hatred to Patrick Tye, they were going to shoot his stock horse; I begged of them not to shoot the horse in consequence of which they left him with us; but stated that if they had found Patrick Tye at home when they went to his station they would have punished him with 50 lashes each man and then have shot him; they acknowledged they had taken all his arms, clothing and ammunition, destroyed his provisions and turned their horses in to eat his wheat; their hatred and vengeance against Patrick Tye was from his constant pursuit and capture of bushrangers in that quarter; after leaving the hut they went in quest of a mare in charge of a free man named Farley, who was fencing down the river in the employment of Sir John Jamieson; Taylor or Archer made the near cut to where Farley was at work and informed him that the bushrangers were coming. Farley instantly mounted the mare, and attempted to swim the river but the stream swept him off the mare and he was unfortunately drowned. Towards the end of October George West, per ship Claudine an assigned servant to Sir John Jamison that the bushrangers had taken cattle away from attempted to swim the river on his stock horse but the stream running so high he was swept off the horse and drowned; his body was found next day by the black natives. Lieut. Steel the commanding officer of the mounted police, stated that no harm would come to men who shot McDonald or any of his party. James Arched was aged 27 and under sentence of transportation for 14 years; a native of Bishops Storford, Essex and an assigned servant of Sir John Jamison since his arrival in the Colony 1829
