  • disciplining of police
  • escapees and absconders from custody
  • housebreakers and burglars
  • licensed carriers, hawkers, oyster fishers, and tanners
  • deserting wives, families, etc
  • deserting from military service
  • deserting from merchant vessels
  • inquests
  • missing friends
  • murderers and their victims
  • police resignations
  • prisoners discharged from gaols and released on tickets of leave
  • property and stock recovered
  • rewards - names of persons offering a reward
  • victims of arson
