On Wednesday last, the headquarters of the 28th regiment landed from the ship John Barry being welcomed to the shores of Australia by the band of the 17th foot, who afterwards invited the strangers to dine with them at Mr William Jones’s at the Robin Hood where the customary festivities were enjoyed in mutual good fellowship until a late hour....................[more about the 17th]................ The 28th regiment is also a gallant corps and has gathered a more than ordinary share of laurels in the field. ...........It is also said that the band of the 28th is of a superior description. .....It is expected that the headquarters of the 28th will be fixed at Sydney after the departure of the 17th and that upon arrival of the 80th which is announced for service in this colony, the 4th will quit Parramatta also for the India station. - Correspondent
