Police Reports. WINDSOR.
Monday, July 17.-Esau Coalfax, a runaway from No. 4, Road Gang, had been apprehended at Parramatta, by Win. Colley, an overseer of a Government Gang. By the prisoner’s confession, it was set forth, that he had worked 24 days for one Robison of Richmond, and he was particular in citing times and circumstances, because, forsooth, he had a claim against the said Robison of 2s. Per day, in Spanish dollars at 4s. 4d. according to agreement. This story being concluded, a claim of another description was instituted against the said Robison, prefaced with the words “New South Wales, to wit,” agreeable to the Act of Council, in that case made and provided; the prisoner to be returned to Parramatta, to be dealt with for absconding.
