Details: Enquiry relative to Abraham, black native....G.K. Mann states - I recollect having seen the deceased whose name I believe to be Abraham in a very debilitated state. About a fortnight ago he was suffering from decline and I ordered him to call for some medicine. It was reported to me last night that his man had died between 12 and 2 o clock yesterday at the saw pits. Today I have seen the corpse at the saw pits and I am of opinion that he had died from the disorder above mentioned as he appears in the most emaciated state and apparently had no arks of violence about him... Joseph Ball having been sworn stated - I and Allcock have been working at the saw pits lately. The deceased came to the saw pits on Tuesday last; he was then very ill. He remained til yesterday about 11 o clock then went away for some rations. When we came back about 2 we found him dead. He has been ill to my recollection about two years past. Peter Allcock states...I knew the deceased. He came to the saw pits on Friday night, he was very ill then. He has been very ill a length of time. We went for rations. When we returned about three hours afterwards we found him dead. No blacks were with him that day nor any one but ourselves that I know of. I and Bell buried him today after the Police Magistrate had viewed the body. There were no marks of violence on him.

They were luckily however perceived just as they had broken in the door and were commencing their plunder. After a desperate struggle, in which the blacks fought most savagely six were taken into custody handcuffed and marched under escort into the township of East Gosford. Amongst them were Quart Pot, a notorious vagabond, Billy Boy and Jackey Nerang. Quart Pot was the leader in the attack on the house and on arriving in the town he was confronted with the owner of the hut when to the astonishment of all he stoutly denied knowing anything aboutt the matter. Their bindings had unfortunately been taken off on their arrival in the town and they armed themselves with legs of tables with which they commenced a furious attack on the two or three who were present. They were also reinforced by several other blacks who were in the neighbourhood or who had followed the escort from Helys. On the arrival of the constables the blacks decamped. One man was severely wounded by the vagabonds but recovering
