The Sydney Monitor and Commercial Advertiser ( NSW )

Monday  15 June 1840  page 4 of 8

By the mail that arrived this morning from Goulburn, I am informed that one of the mounted Police committed suicide last week, by shooting himself through the head.

later – in the same article:-

But the rumour relative to the mounted trooper having committed suicide has been confirmed by late intelligence from Goulburn – the cause which urged the unfortunate man’s committing this rash act, has not yet transpired.
