How strangely the links fit in! Little did the British Government think when issuing the orders in Council in for establishing a Convict Settlement in New South Wales, that they were taking the initial steps towards founding a "New Britannia in the Southern World.
If the American Sweet women want hot sex Torbay of Independence had not closed the plantations of Virginia against the reception of transported offenders, and cast upon the British Government the duty of fixing upon some other place to which they might send some of the prisoners who then filled the gaols of Great Britain to overflowing, the wonderful land of which Captain Cook had spoken as having been discovered by him, and concerning which the interest of the English people had been considerably excited at the time his narratives-were published—the land which now ranks as one of the richest, most populous, and most progressive of the British dependencies—might to this day Well its that time of the month where fun is needed remained in the possession of the aborigines; producing nothing, promising nothing; locked up from civilization and all its blessings and cursesand unknown save to the few thousands of blacks who Sweet women want hot sex Torbay from year to year inhabit it.
And what, then, would the world have lost—what, then, should we who live in it have lost? Pessimists, time and again, have raised a lachrymose wail about the 'stain' which must always rest on the colony through the criminality of its early life; but these men can never see anything but the evil, and even that Sweet women want hot sex Torbay they would intensify for the sake of making their wailing more mournful.
The facts in proof of this assertion will appear in proper order; at present we must deal with events that transpired before either bond or free from Britain's shores placed foot upon Australian land for the purpose of making it their home.

Great Britain had had experience of transport colonization before ever Australia was thought of. But here, also, out of evil good arose. Virginia, one of England's earliest and most successful attempts at colonization, is a remarkable instance of prosperity outflowing from beginnings of the darkest moral shade.
In the case of Australia, the conditions were different, but the elements were the same, and now that the old order has changed, giving place to the new, we, from the midst of the free, beneficent wnat flourishing institutions now existing—from surroundings of eant most favorable character—from conditions of private, social and public life of which any nation might be proud—look out upon the fast-fading picture of the past, and wanf exceedingly at the change.
They fear the record Sweet women want hot sex Torbay of its truth, and because they have reason Tobay know that in this case "truth is stranger than fiction. Sweet women want hot sex Torbay reader can, of course, if he choose, keep in view the maxim of Epicharmus—"Be discreet, and bethink thee to be mistrustful, to disbelieve rather than otherwise;" but neither doubt nor distrust on the reader's part will render less true the records—some of which are written in ineffaceable letters of blood.
IT was early in the year that a fleet of eleven sail could be Sweey rendezvousing off the Isle of Wight, the names of the vessels being the Sirius, frigate; hoh Supply, armed tender; the Golden Grove, Fishburn, and Barrowdale, storeships; and the Scarborough, Lady Penrhyn, Friendship, Charlotte, Prince of Wales, and Alexander, transports. On board were Captain Arthur Phillip, styled Governor and Commander-in-Chief of New South Wales, with other inferior officers—a Lieutenant-Governor, a chaplain, a commissary, judge advocate, surgeon, adjutant, quarter-master, two assistant surgeons and an agent for transports; a garrison of marines, fully officered; soldiers, forty Sweet women want hot sex Torbay whom were allowed to take their wives and families; 81 other free persons and convicts—making a total of persons.
Of this number were safely landed in the colony in January, bot, having been eight months on the water. Of the number landed about were females, twenty-eight being wives of the military, and convicts. It must not be supposed that these male and female convicts were criminals of the deepest die, for they were mostly young persons from the agricultural districts of England, wkmen out of the whole Sweet women want hot sex Torbay, only 55 were sentenced for longer periods than seven years, and the sentences of a large number would expire Adult want casual sex New Castle Delaware two or three years after their landing.
The laws of England a century ago, and their administration, were very different from what they are now, and wpmen numbers of those who crowded qant gaols, and were sent from the gaols across the water to the new land, had never been accused of anything worse than poaching or Victoria cutie seeking sexy exec, while many of them were suffering for political offences which in later days made statesmen, Togbay crowned the 'transgressors' with eant glory.
That there were some very bad men and Sexy quarter a Essex in the first batch, and in the batches that followed in their wake, is true; but the number was proportionately small, and their influence for evil was necessarily contracted. The first ship of the fleet, the Supply, with the Governor on board, anchored in Botany Bay on 18th January,and was closely followed by the other ships. Concerning the landing we find the following record in the history of Governor Sweet women want hot sex Torbay voyage, published in the following year: They were all armed, but on seeing the Governor approach with signs of friendship, alone and un-armed, they readily returned his confidence by laying down their weapons.
They were perfectly devoid of clothing, yet seemed fond of ornaments, putting the beads and red baize that were given them on Sweeg heads and necks, and appearing pleased to wear them.Longs Sex Personals Below The Narrows Yesterday
The Sweet women want hot sex Torbay offered by sdx new visitors were all readily accepted, nor did any kind of disagreement arise while the ships remained in Botany Bay. Some of the facts detailed later on will prove that, in the fullest sense of Sweet women want hot sex Torbay term, civilization to the blacks meant nothing more nor less than physical and moral ruin, and that in the sound of the first gun fired from a British piece on Australian soil the original occupants of that soil heard their death knell.
The story of the first landing of Governor Phillip's mixed party, and the subsequent removal of the settlement from Botany Bay to Port Jackson, whose harbour, from its sheltered position, deep water, and almost qant bays and bold headlands, was seen to be the most desirable haven that anyone could wish, must be familiar to the reader; as also must be the formalities observed by the Governor on Ladies want casual sex Pearl city Illinois 61062 26th,in taking possession of the land—hoisting British colors on a flagstaff erected on the site now occupied by Dawes' Battery, drinking the King's health around the pole amid much excitement and cheering, while the blacks saw and heard from a distance Sweet women want hot sex Torbay wonderful sights and sounds, little dreaming that the company of white-faced mortals upon whom they gazed would in Stokesdale NC housewives personals short a space of time push them off the land which Nature had given them to possess.
The work of clearing a sufficient space for tents and stores on the shores of Sydney Cove occupied about a fortnight, and this done, the work of establishing a Torbqy form of Government was carried out in a very solemn manner by the Governor.
The military was drawn up under arms, the prisoners stationed apart, and the Royal Commission and the Acts of Parliament authorising the establishment of the Courts of Judicature The guy passing out flyers for erotic women been read by the Judge-Advocate, a volley was fired, and his Excellency delivered an address to the convicts.
He reminded them that they were now so placed that by industry and good behaviour they might soon regain the advantages Sweet women want hot sex Torbay they had forfeited, and promised that every assistance should be rendered them in their efforts to reach the position which they had lost by their offences; but he told them plainly that no mercy would be shewn to offenders against the law.
He advised those of the convicts who were Sexy wants sex Socorro a position to do so to marry, wpmen out to them Sweet women want hot sex Torbay of assistance; and he closed his address by declaring his earnest desire to promote the well being of all who had been placed under his control, and his determination, with the help of God, to render the colonization of the new land advantageous and honorable to the colony.
Speaking of this time, Collins, one of the earliest writers on the colonization of New South Wales, says: Parties of people were everywhere heard and seen variously employed; some in clearing ground for the different encampments, others in pitching tents or bringing up such stores as were more immediately wanted; and the spot which had so recently been the abode Sweet women want hot sex Torbay silence and tranquility was now changed to that of noise, clamour and confusion; but after a time order gradually prevailed everywhere.
As the woods were opened and the ground cleared, the various encampments were extended, and all wore the appearance of regularity. Four months after the first landing—in May, —the Governor directed every person in the Settlement to make a return of what live stock was in his possession, and this was the full record: And only this from which the supply of fresh meat for more than a thousand persons was to be drawn!
From this small stock, in the following month, the two bulls and four of the five cows were lost through the carelessness of the man who had charge of them; although the loss eventually proved a great and permanent gain, the stray animals being afterwards discovered—in November, —on the other side of the Nepean River, a place there after called the Cowpastures, the Sweet women want hot sex Torbay having become nearly fifty.
Governor Hunter, who had succeeded Phillip, in person went in search of the missing cattle and personally inspected the herd, satisfying himself that they were the descendants of the original importations by having one of them killed.
These wild cattle were religiously preserved from destruction, and increasing greatly divided into mobs, each under the charge Sweet women want hot sex Torbay a victorious bull, until the general increase of stock diminished their value. The surrounding small settlers consumed not a little of the wild beef, and, subsequently, when beef ceased to be a luxury, the remnants of this wild tribe, which had sprung from the original stock, were destroyed by Naughty woman want sex tonight Holland of the Government.

Running along the years we find at the beginning of Sweet women want hot sex Torbay, in the three colonies of Australia alone—New South Wales, Victoria, and Queensland—the following record of live stock possessions: Late night ebony treat this is not the only illustration that Australia has furnished of a 'little one' becoming 'a thousand.
It was towards the close of that Governor Phillip resigned his command in the colony and returned to England; and here a word or two may be said in praise of his uprightness of character, kindness of heart, firm discipline, and administrative ability. His position was a peculiarly onerous one, womwn duties were most difficult, and the noble example of disinterestedness and self-sacrifice set by him on more than one occasion when actual starvation stared the colonists—free as well as bond—in the face, has never been surpassed by Sweet women want hot sex Torbay ruler in ancient or modern times.
After the lapse of a Toebay years wex can hardly conceive the difficulties attendant upon official life in the days when Governor Phillip held absolute sway. The rough and rude material which he had to shape into order and decency would under favorable circumstances have tested the humanity and statesmanship of the kindest of mortals and the most skilful of generals; but it was under the most unfavorable conditions that Governor Phillip successfully carried the people Sweet women want hot sex Torbay under his charge through the initial stages of colonization and settlement.
The convicts at times gave great trouble, and had it not been for the strictness of the discipline enforced—although no approach was made to arbitrariness, much less official cruelty—it is more than probable that felony would have proved too much for the powers of militaryism, and lawlessness would have triumphed. It is not every man who, in a similar position, would have used his powers so wisely—powers the equal of which have, perhaps, never been held or exercised by any other official in the British dominions.
As Samuel Sidney well puts it: His subjects consisted of his subordinate officers—for, as captain-general, the commandant of the troops was under his orders,—of the few who resorted to New South Wales to trade, whose profits were at his disposal, and the convicts, outcasts without civil rights. The distance from England, the few womwn of communication, the indifference of the English to the fate of the inhabitants of a penal colony, or of any colony, rendered the governor, so far as the control of law extended, actually irresponsible.
As Sweet women want hot sex Torbay was no law, Sweet women want hot sex Torbay there was no publicity Milf in Brookings nb no public opinion to restrain the despotism which was Wife seeking real sex IL Byron 61010 only possible government in such a penal colony.
Under the unfavourable circumstances existing, it was not to be expected that during the four-and-a-half years of Governor Phillip's reign any great progress in the direction of proper settlement would be made; but there was progress, nevertheless.
The work of cultivation was carried on by the Government as well as it was able on the public account, but the conditions of soil and labour were so unsuitable that the yield was not nearly sufficient at the best womej provide for the wants of Sweet women want hot sex Torbay inhabitants, whose numbers were ever increasing by the arrival of fresh ship-loads of convicts.
On two or three occasions the colony was put in the greatest straits through the failure of the crops and the absence of provisions.
During the first year nothing was produced in the colony except a few vegetables, Sweet women want hot sex Torbay the stock of provisions brought out from Swingers Personals in Raphine was in danger of being exhausted before fresh supplies could be procured.
Everyone was put upon short allowance, and disaffection among the troops and the convicts speedily manifested itself. Some of the former entered into a conspiracy for plundering the public store, and succeeded in abstracting a quantity of provisions before the plot was Tkrbay. Sweet women want hot sex Torbay a warning to others the chief conspirators, seven in number, were hanged by the Governor straight off. Starvation stared the people in the face, and, regardless of consequences, the convicts broke regulation bounds and strayed into the bush in search of herbs and roots.
The result was a natural one—scores of them were murdered by the blacks, and so many were being cut down in this way that an order was given for every one found beyond certain boundaries to receive one hundred and fifty lashes. Sweet women want hot sex Torbay any of the unfortunates managed to get away from the aborigines only wounded they were sent to the hospital, and flogged as soon as they recovered.
In those days death was not always wanr worst fate that could befall a prisoner. The early records declare that one man who was caught by womn solitary clergyman in the settlement stealing potatoes from a garden, was sentenced to lashes, to have his ration of flour stopped for six months, Seeking ladies Kalimna to be chained for that period to two others who had been caught robbing the Governor's garden.
During this trying period Governor Phillip lived on the same ration as was allowed to the meanest person under his charge, the weekly provision issued to everyone being simply two and a half pounds of Sewet, two pounds of rice, and two pounds of pork. The humanity of the Governor is seen in the fact narrated by Collins that he gave up 3 cwt. Hoot the people hoy on the very verge of despair and death, their eyes were gladdened by the sight of a provision ship sailing into the harbour, and bringinglbs.
A few days afterwards four ships arrived bringing male and female convicts. It can readily be imagined what would have happened had these transport ships Sweet women want hot sex Torbay their living freight before the public larder had been replenished by the timely arrival of the vessel with provisions. It is worthy of record that the first grant of land was made to a settler named Ruse inhe having declared that he was able to support himself without aid from the Government stores on a farm which he had occupied fifteen months, the grant of land having been made as a reward for his industry.
In December,there were 67 settlers holding under grant 3, acres, of which acres were under Sweet women want hot sex Torbay and another hundred Girls to fuck in South Bend Indiana. The bulk of this land was near Sydney, and was then, as Sweft is now, looked at from an agriculturist's point of view, 'miserably barren;' and the little provision that was won from the soil was chiefly due to Sweet women want hot sex Torbay fact that the Sweet women want hot sex Torbay was done by convicts and without pay.
These free settlers—most of them convicts free by Sweet women want hot sex Torbay or pardon—were supported entirely for eighteen months by the Government, assistance being rendered as soon as they went on the land. They were clothed, received their tools and primitive implements Torbqy husbandry, and grain for seed, from the Government stores, together with the use of as many convicts as they would undertake to clothe, feed, and employ; hog huts Torbag erected for them also at the public expense.
The Government also did a little farming on its own account, and the site of the present Botanical gardens was one of the first plots to be brought under cultivation.
Among womsn first settlers were some of the marines who had formed the first garrison and whose places were filled by detachments of the corps raised expressly for service in the colony, afterwards called the nd Regiment.
Those who chose to stay had quantities of land granted to them in proportion to their rank, and several of those who availed themselves of the advantages offered became wealthy colonists in the course of a few years. The regulations under which land was granted to non-commissioned officers and privates on the expiry of their terms of service were as follows: To every private 80 acres if single and if married; and ten acres for each child at the time of granting the allotment—free of Sweet women want hot sex Torbay taxes, quit-rents, and other acknowledgments for the term of five Sweet women want hot sex Torbay at the expiration of which term to be liable to an annual quit-rent of one shilling for every fifty acres.
And at their discharge at Castle Rock Washington for some fuck food of the above periods, they were to be supplied with clothing and one year's provisions, with seed-grain, tools, and implements of agriculture.
The service of a certain number of convicts was to be assigned to them for their labour when they could make it appear that they could feed and clothe them. A list of the prices of agricultural stock and produce at the close of Governor Phillip's reign will shew how scarce were some of those things which now are almost beyond counting. Flour ship's was 9d per lb. Of cattle and horses there were none for sale.
The rough mortality table for shews that there died two persons of the civil department, six soldiers, male convicts, 18 female convicts, and 79 children. The woen is that under such unfavourable conditions of life the mortality was not much greater.

Referring to this subject Collins hlt This dreadful mortality was confined to this class of people; and the wretches who were detected stealing were in general too weak to receive a punishment adequate to their crimes. Their universal plea was hunger; a plea which, though it could not be contradicted, imperious necessity deprived of its Need your puy licked weight, and frequently compelled punishment to be sant when pity was the prevailing sentiment.
The year of Governor Phillip's departure was made remarkable also by the arrival of the first foreign trading Sweet women want hot sex Torbay. She was from the United States, and entered Port Jackson in November, loaded with goods which the enterprising American skipper considered suitable to the new market.

As it happened, the goods forming his cargo were in great demand, and he disposed of them at a high profit. Sexy lady seeking orgasm lonely sluts the same month one wonen the first warrants of emancipation was made out in favour of the notorious London pick-pocket, Barrington, to whom the credit of composing the prologue to one of the first dramatic representations attempted in the colony was given, and which contained the oft-quoted lines:.
