Details: During our travellers stay, two natives of some note arrived: King Ben and King Shingleman. The natives had no distinctions of rank among themselves, but when a native had performed any great service for one of the settlers, he was rewarded by giving him a large oval brass plate, with his royal title inscribed thereon. At first the natives were greatly pleased and proud of this mark of distinction, but as is the case every where, when the novelty was over, and these honorary medals became common, they began to hold them in disrepute, and now prefer the hard silver.

Details: An aboriginal native, known by the name of Shingleman, about 28 years of age, on Thursday afternoon went to the house of James Prescott in Clarence Street, for whose family Shingleman had been in the habit of fetching water from the fountain and complained of being ill all over; as he appeared to be very ill, and the night was inclined to be wet, Mr. Prescott allowed him to remain in his kitchen. On going into the kitchen the next morning Prescott discovered the man lying in the doorway, his legs in the yard, and quite dead. He was a quiet inoffensive man, but of intemperate habits, and chiefly drank colonial ale. An inquest was held on the body, at Spinks public house Clarence Street, yesterday afternoon, when Dr. Tierney (having made a post mortem examination of the body) gave his opinion that death was the result of natural causes. A verdict was returned of death by the visitation of God
