    • convict returns
    • 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
    • prisoners released on tickets of leave
    • property and stock recovered
    • rewards - names of persons offering a reward
    • victims of arson
    • victims of horse and cattle stealing or straying
    • victims of lost or stolen property
    • victims of sheep stealing or straying
