....The Commodore Hayes, Captain Moncrief, of 700 tons, with the Head-quarters of the Buffs on board, as well as male pri-soners for the Southern Settlements, sailed three days prior to the departure of the Henry. From Hobart Town, therefore, we may shortly look for Captain Moncrieff's return to Port Jackson.

George Bates was indicted for stealing, on board of the Commodore Hayes, on the 30th August last, sun- dry property, belonging to the Crown, as well as private individuals. The prisoner was an ordinary seaman on board. The troops were disembarking upon the day after her arrival in the harbour, and all was bustle and confusion. The prisoner, who was madly intoxicated at the time, broke open a box, containing most of the property in question, and secreted it in various parts of the ship. The robbery was no sooner effected than detected, and the prisoner lodged in custody. All the witnesses gave the prisoner an excellent character for honesty and sobriety during the whole of the passage. The verdict of Guilty was recorded; but, in conse- quence of the high recommendation of one of the Members of the Court, the case was considered such an one as called forth for extraordinary lenity, and the prisoner was sentenced to-7 days solitary con- finement.
