3. Thomas C Hadley

Extract from article on HIGHWAY ROBBERIES
On Thursday, the 4th instant, Mr. Thomas Hadley encountered them on the Parramatta road, near Mr. McArthur's gate. He was driving a dray, accompanied by a servant. The robbers, after compelling them to stop, took down a panel in the fence, and led the dray and its drivers into the thick brushwood, where they examined its contents, and finding nothing valuable to them but a keg of gin, they took possession of it, and permitted Mr. Hadley to pursue his journey. It is deserving of notice, that while searching the dray, they heard a noise as if some one was approaching, when, after listening a moment, one of them observed, " O, it's not the Mounted Police, or we should hear their swords rattling". This ought to be a hint to those guardians of the highway, to take some means of keeping their swords silent till called into action.

6. Charles Hadley

DARING BURGLARY.-On Tuesday, the 20th inst. a gang of five ruffians, strongly armed, broke into the house of Mr. Charles Hadley, a publican, on the banks of the Nepean ; and, after cruelly beating Mr. H. and even his wife and children, they decamped with nothing more than a watch. The Government servants, who slept contiguous to the house, being awoke by the noise, hastened toward the door to render assistance to their master, but were repelled by two of the plunderers, who, pointing their firebrands, swore they would shoot the first man who dared to approach. Having finished their nefarious work, and supposing they had dispatched poor Hadley, they deliberately walked away, and, to immediate pursuit, discharged a pistol in the air. From their appearing satisfied with so inconsiderable a booty, it is suspected their principal object was to take Mr. H's. life; who, we are informed, now lies in a very dangerous state. A party of constables, accompanied by a sagacious native, are in active pursuit of those daring villains ; and, it is confidently hoped they will succeed in bringing them to justice.

James Richards

Horse racing may well be the sport of kings, but as promoted by James Richards, mine host of the Newtown Inn, on Boxing Day in 1847, it appears to have been not so much about racehorses of the thoroughbred variety, but rather races for horses. Richards, son of a convict woman, three times bankrupt, and some time coach owner and driver from the City of Sydney to Cook’s River, offered an entertainment the like of which we are not likely to see in this century. His hotel on the Cook’s River Road (now King Street) at Newtown was the venue, but just where and how long the race course was is uncertain. Note the qualification for three of the races being, “horses of all ages that work in harness,” effectively disqualifying all but carthorses or coach horses.
