VAGRANCY. - William Russell, 70 years of age, was charged with vagrancy. He had come into town from Rockley and applied at the lock-up for relief, seeking admission into the Benevolent Asylum. He said he was without friends and was suffering from rheumatism.
The Bench gave him an order for admission into the Bathurst Hospital, from which place he could be forwarded to the Benevolent Asylum if proved to be a fit subject.

Convict Ship information
The Andromeda was built in Sunderland in 1819. Convicts were transported to Van Diemen's Land on the Andromeda in 1826 and to New South Wales in 1830, 1833 and 1834.

The Andromeda departed Portsmouth on 17 November 1832. On board were convicts from counties throughout England. Most were held on prison hulks prior to transportation. Sixteen year old Thomas Kinggett and John Groves were held on the Hulk Hardy at Portsmouth and transferred to the Andromeda on 8th November 1832; others were held on the York.

This was David Boyter's 3rd voyage as Surgeon Superintendent of a convict ship. He kept a Medical Journal from 29 October 1832 to 29 March 1833. ........

The Guard were embarked in fine weather and under the most favourable circumstances. They were all young men in high health and spirits and completed the voyage without a casualty occurring and were disembarked in the best state of health after a voyage of seventeen weeks. The convicts were in number two hundred and eighty-six. I received them from the York hulk at Portsmouth. They were mostly young men lately convicted, of very full habit and apparently remarkably clean and healthy at this time. Cholera was very prevalent and fatal on board of the next hulk and from the men having been employed together at work in the dock yard, I was very apprehensive of the disease's appearance on board the Andromeda, but I am happy to remark that with the exception of a mild case of dysentery, not another instance of bowel complaint occurred during the voyage. During the first part of our voyage in crossing the Bay of Biscay we met with a very severe gale of wind, the ship from being just out of port was very ill-provided with tarpaulins and other necessary things to prevent water getting below. The consequence was that the prison was completely inundated and the lower deck was obliged to be scuttled to allow the water to escape below. Many of the convicts were seriously ill from perfect terror but more especially from sea sickness which induced several to the lowest ebb. I was in these cases obliged to administer liberally wine and medical comfort to assist in their recovery. From these circumstances and getting rapidly into a tropical climate sickness prevailed to a greater extent than I had experienced during my two former voyages.
