To the Editor of the Sydney Gazelle. SIR, I beg leave, through the medium of your Paper, to inform those who may feel interested in the subject, that, in consequence of the very strange statements that have appeared in your two List Numbers respecting Captain Muddle, of the ship Andromeda, I have written for publication, in London and Edinburgh, copies of the following papers : First,-A Letter addressed to Captain M. of the ship Andromeda, by six of his cabin-passengers at sea, remonstrating with him on his impudence to threatening to flog his passengers. Second,-An Extract from a private Journal kept on board the ship Andromeda during her voyage from Leith to Van Diemen's Land, relative to the conduct of Captain M. on the night in which that vessel crossed the line. ' Third,-An Extract of a Letter addressed lo Captain M. of the ship Andromeda, by one of his passengers, of date, Rio de Janiero, 31st January, 182J, of which letter the following is also an extract : " Allow me to add, that your conduct that, on several occasions since our leaving Falmouth, been so totally inconsistent with propriety, and of a character ]so menacing and dangerous, that for my own part and a considerable number of the passengers, as they have personally assured me, are ready to declare, upon oath, if called on, that we do not consider our lives in safety in prosecuting the voyage under your command, unless, in the mean time, you evince a sincere determination to adopt a totally different line of conduct from that which you have hitherto pursued. I trust, therefore, that a due regard to your own character, and for the happiness and comfort of all on board, will induce you to entertain very different sentiments from those on which you have acted for some time past, and to adopt a course of procedure more consistent with the character of a man of honour, and not calculated to destroy the happiness of those who entrusted their lives and fortunes under your charge. You are well aware, that, under the influence of these violent passions which you have repeatedly displayed, a man may be guilty of actions which shall cost him along life-time of bitter remorse. (signed) " JOHN D. LANG.'Ï have only to add, that if Captain M. had had the prudence to preserve his ignognito in Sydney, he would have saved himself an, exposure at home. Iam, Sir, your most obedient Servant, J.D.I, A Passenger by the Andromeda.

167454 - - Andromeda 1823 28 August 1823 Sydney SG
To the Editor of the Sydney Gazette. SIR, Having seen in your Paper, of the 21st instant, a communication signed JOHN D. LANG respecting what he is pleased to term "the very strange statements relative to myself, which appeared in your Gazette of the 7th and 14th instant, I can only say, that however strange the same. may appear, they are not the less true. As to his sending home, for publication, Extracts from his Journal, I dare say they will draw down the commiseration of his cousins, and put them on their guard how they trust their lives and fortunes to such a monster as he will doubtless represent me ; for my own part, I feel perfectly easy as to their effect in regard to myself, my character stands upon too firm a ground with those whose good opinion I value, to be in any degree influenced by the splenetic rodomontades of the Rev. Gentleman. I only hope the Editors of the Prints, through which he intends launching forth his anathemas, will gratify his vanity by giving his lucubrations a conspicuous corner in their respective Papers. I am very sorry at having, in a moment of irritation occasioned by the mutinous conduct of one of my crew, and the impudent, to use J. D. L's. favourite expression, behaviour of several of my passengers, put J. D. L. in the dreadful fright he alludes to; had I been aware that the Terrors of the grammar school were so fresh in his memory, I would have been more cautious in my expression. The extract signed JOHN D. LANG, is certainly very pretty, and will shew the Public the anxious solicitude that Gentleman evinced for his fellow passengers. It may appear presumption in me to offer advice to J. D. L. but Icannot close this without strongly recommending to his most serious attention, the 9,th verse of the 5th chap, of St. Matthew :««Blessed are the peace-makers ; for they shall be called the children of God. I am, Sir, your most obedient Servant. JAMES MUDDLE, Master of the Ship Andrómeda,

167452 Leak - Andromeda 1823 12 July 1823 - Hobart Town Gazette
Leak Y. Muddle. The Plaintiff is a gentleman of respectability, who embarked with his family in the ship Andromeda for this Colony ; the Defendant is the master of that ship. For the Plaintiff's accommodation and table he paid the sum of £380 ;his family consisted, besides himself and his wife, of six children and two servants, the two younger children lived with the Plaintiff in the cabin, the other four with the servants in the steerage. The Plaintiff sought to recover from the Defendant some compensation for a breach of covenant, and maltreatment on board, during the passage out. On the trial it appeared there existed great differences between the passengers, which commenced shortly after they left England, to their arrival here; so as to render it necessary to make a division at the table during mealtimes, that the parties should not sit together ;one party sat at the upper end of the table with the Captain, the other end was occupied by the Plaintiff and the other party. The evidence during this trial was, as may be naturally expected from such circumstances, most conflicting and contradictory in many points; still, upon the whole, the greater part of the com-plaint was amply established. The Defendant’s conduct, and that of his steward, were unaccommodating, rude, and overbearing in several instances ; and the Defendant, at his table, made invidious distinctions, particularly in not offering fruit, &c. &c. to be participated by the Plaintiff and family at his end of the table, though he paid full as much as any other passenger on board. The Deputy Judge Advocate animadverted in suitable terms for such partial and general ill behaviour of the Defendant towards those who were placed under his protection and care ;and that, instead of treating the Plaintiff and his family with the kindness they had a right to expect, he chose to adopt a very different line of conduct. To make invidious distinction at his own table, and in his general demeanour towards the Plaintiff to hurt and wound his feelings was not to be tolerated from any one ;but, as pecuniary damages were not so much the avowed object of the Plaintiff, as an exposure of the treatment he had undeservedly received, the Judge Advocate trusted the Court would only give such reasonable and dispassionate damages as would meet the justice of the case, and serve as a warning to others. The verdict itself, he thought too, would be a much severer rebuke to the Defendant, as far as respected his character as master of a ship, than any pecuniary damages this Court could award.Verdict for Plaintiff- Damages £25.
