      BALLINA CHRONICLE
      Ballina, Mayo, Ireland
      Wednesday, December 19, 1849

      PORT PHILIP-REFUSAL TO RECEIVE EXILES.
      The Randolph, 664 tons, W. Dale, from Westwich, 28th of April, with exiles,
      and a detachment of the 58th and 11th regiments, arrived at Port Philip on the
      8th instant, and notwithstanding an order had been given by Mr. Latrobe that no
      convict vessel should pass the Heads, the Randolph was anchored at William's
      Town. Intelligence has arrived via Launcesten, that public demonstrations had
      been made against their landing, and it was reported that £560 had been
      subscribed to defray the cost of conveying the convicts elsewhere, and that the
      ship was proceeding to Sydney.
      During the passage of the Randolph from England to the Cape, the surgeon
      superintendent, in a fit of insanity, threw himself overboard, and was drowned.
      She put into Simon's Bay for water and got another surgeon from the
      guardship.--Hobart Town Courier, Aug. 18.
