We are concerned to state that a few of the Natives have again manifested an inclination to hostility, and already proceeded to acts of abominable outrage. Report at the present juncture confines their ravages and barbarity to Portland Head, where Mr. Matthew Everingham, settler, his wife, and a servant, are said to have been speared ; as is also Mr. John Howe, settler, near the above spot. The house and out-houses of the former were plundered and afterwards set on fire, but the spear wounds received are not accompanied with any mortal appearance.
Several other settlers in this neighbourhood have suffered very considerably in being robbed of their cloathing, stock, and grain.

The death of Serjeant Harry Parsons who arrived here in the Marines a mere youth thirty years ago, took place three weeks since at Sydney. He went from the Marines into the Colonial Corps, afterwards the 102d Regiment of the Line; was Master of the Band ; and remained in each succeeding Regiment on account of his very great utility to the Colony as Instructor of Sacred Music to the little female Orphans, and their constant leader at divine worship. He was a much respected man ; and at his funeral received the parting honours of his military profession, accompanied by the deepest regret from all who knew him.

The following may be depended on as too true an account of the direful deed glanced at in our last: - On Saturday morning, the 5th instant, between 8 and 9 in the morning, a most barbarous murder was committed on the body of Mrs. Wright, a daughter of the late Mr. Turnbull's, Portland-head, by her husband. This dreadful event took place in their own house, on the first branch of the Hawkesbury River. The first notice of it was given by one of the children, who cried out to Mr Cavenagh's people, the nearest neighbours, that her mother was killed, and that her father had run away. On entering the house a shocking scene presented itself. The woman was lying on the floor covered over with the bed, bathed with gore, and quite speechless. On examination she was found to have received several mortal fractures upon the head , besides several bruises in other parts of her body. The axe, which had been the instrument of inflicting these wounds, was lying at a little distance, covered with her blood and hair. Medical aid was procured with the utmost despatch; but it was unavailing; the poor woman died on Monday. On the Coroner's inquest it was ascertained that the woman, as well as her husband, had been seen only a few minutes before the deed was perpetrated. The children had been sent to their customary employments; the eldest, a boy, to mind the pigs; the second, a girl, to frighten away the cockatoos from the maize, who had also to nurse the youngest child, an infant about a year old. There was only this difference, that the father sent away the least boy with some bread to his eldest brother, which was an unusual thing. There was no evidence of any domestic quarrel, either that morning or the preceding night; nor of the intoxication of either parties. Some conversation, however, of rather a singular nature, occurred on Friday evening. The woman, on telling her son that she should go with him in the morning to the place where he took the pigs, that she might get some peaches, added--- 'If I live till the morning, for I may die, or I may be killed;' on which her husband said--- 'Killed! why, who is to kill you if I do not?'. She replied, 'No, there is no-one to kill me if you don't.' The Coroner's Inquest was wilful murder against the husband; who has not yet been found, though several persons think they have seen him prowling about in the neighbourhood. By others it is conjectured, as he took his razors with him, that he has destroyed himself.
