BANE, Knight Commander of the Most Honorable Military Order of the Bath, Captain General and Governor in Chief in and over His Majesty's Territory of New South Wales and its Dependencies, &c. &c. &c.

WHEREAS, by a Proclamation under my

Hand and Seal, dated the 14th Day of August, 1824, stating, amongst other Things, that the ABORIGINAL NATIVES of the DISTRICTS near BATHURST, had, for many Weeks past, carried on a Series of indiscriminate Attacks on the Stock Stations there, I did, by Virtue of the Authority in me vested by His Majesty's Commis- sion, declare that, in Order to repress the same, MARTIAL LAW should he in Force in all

the Country Westward of Mount York :---And whereas the judicious and humane Measure pur- sued by the Magistrates assembled at Bathurst aforesaid, have restored Tranquillity without Bloodshed : -- NOW THEREFORE, by Virtue of the Authority aforesaid, I do direct, that MAR- TIAL LAW shall cease to be any longer in Force

in the aforesaid Districts.

In Witness whereof, I, the Governor afore-

said, have hereunto set my Hand, and   caused the Seal of my Office, as Gover- nor of the Colony of New South Wales and its Dependencies, to be affixed, this Eleventh Day of December, in the Year of Our Lord One thousand eight hundred and twenty-four,

"THOMAS BRISBANE." (L. S).   By His Excellency's Command,

F. GOULBURN, Colonial Secretary.

GOD SAVE THE KING!
