24 September 1814

Patrick Collins, the notorious bushranger implicated in the murder of Alder, White, and the woman at Hawkesbury, in company with the late Donovan, and, suspected also of many subsequent robberies, was apprehended on Thursday evening by a party of soldiers quartered at Liverpool, conducted by Mr. John Warby, and several natives, by whom his place of concealment near the Devil's Back, had been discovered.

In an effort to escape he was speared by one of the natives in the leg and arm, when finding himself immediately overpowered, he was forced to yield, and was brought in yesterday.
