    TOOWOOMBA POLICE COURT, Thursday, Feb. 14th. Before his Worship the Mayor.

    Josiah Dent appeared on summons charged by Constable Maloney, with having, on the 18 th instant, made use of obscene language in the public streets. Defendant admitted the charge, but pleaded drunkenness as an excuse. Fined £2, and in default of payment one month's imprisonment.

    Toowoomba Chronicle and Darling Downs General Advertiser newspaper
    Thursday, January 20, 1887

            In our obituary columns this morning is announced the death of one of the first settlers in the Toowoomba district - indeed, we believe we are justified in stating that he was the oldest resident of this town.
    The late Mr. Josiah DENT was an old identity, and he carries us back to the period when the present site of Toowoomba formed a part of a Gowrie sheep station, and when only about 30 or 40 splitters and fencers were located on the Main Range. Mr. DENT was a useful man in his way.
    He leaves a grown up family of sons and daughters to mourn their loss. He died on Tuesday of bronchitis after an illness of ten days and at the ripe age of 71 years.

    TOOWOOMBA'S FIRST CITIZEN

    Toowoomba in 1849 had a population of one - when Josiah Dent pitched his tent at The Swamp. To-day Dent street, Toowoomba, runs where Joseph boiled his billy, built the first bark hut and later the first wooden house. To-day the population is over 29,000.

    (Before the Police Magistrate.)

    Josiah Dent, brought up on bail for being drunk; was fined 10s., or 48 hours in the lock-up.

    AROSE FROM SWAMP

    Toowoomba's Humble Beginning

    IT is a long way back to the day in 1849 when Josiah Dent pitched his tent near The Swamp. A humble bush worker, Josiah did not know that he was the first citizen of Toowoomba - that busy Dent Street now crosses the site of his camp. He laid the 'foundation stone' of the city - his was the first tent, the first bark hut, and the first wooden house. On the site of his house now, stand the rest rooms of the Toowoomba branch of the Queensland Country Women's Association. The Darling Downs of those years boasted a population of only a few hundred, and the settlement of Drayton was the 'capital.' To-day the people of the Downs number 116,000, and Toowoomba's one-man tent has grown to the leading centre supporting 29,000.

    AROSE FROM SWAMP. (1939, March 12). Sunday Mail (Brisbane) (Qld. : 1926 - 1954), p. 16. Link to TROVE

    Josiah Dent was charged with having feloniously stopped Benjamin Bull on the 4th of Nov. last, and robbed him of a silver watch, of the value of 15s. and a purse, containing 1s.

    Benjamin Bull desposed that on the night in question he was drinking at a public house at Floore, in the same room as the prisoner. John Rogers was in company with Dent, and went out with him just before the prosecutor left. When on his way to Brockhall the prisoner Dent, and Rogers, threw him down; one of the prisoners (he does not know which) took the purse out of his pocket, and the prisoner, Dent, took the watch.

    Cross-examined by Mr. Miller. - Was drinking at the public house from half-past four until he left, at half-past ten o'clock. Remembers a man blacking his face with soot at the public house. Asked nobody to go to the Dun Cow or the Royal Oak.

    John Rogers comes out of prison to give evidence. On Nov. 4th., witness, the prosecutor, the prisoner, and several others, were at the public house, at Floore. Dent and witness left together. Prisoner proposed to witness to go together to the Brockhall road, and wait till Bull came back, that they might rob him. They did so; Dent knocked Bull down, and witness held him whilst Dent took from him his watch and purse.

    Cross-examined by Mr. Miller. - Bull was very fresh; recollects his wanting to go up the chimney. Dent blackened his face, and asked him if that would not satisfy him without going up the chimney. Recollects the landlord threatening to turn Bull out. Dent knocked down Bull; witness had nothing to do with it; Dent did it, and took from the prosecutor the watch and the purse. Prosecutor invited witness and Dent to go to the Dun Cow and the Royal Oak; and they went, but the houses were shut up. Dent's father and Bull work together on the farm, and were old friends. Denies that Dent ran against prosecutor for a lark, and that he (witness) took advantage of his being down, and unknown to Dent, whipped out the watch. Was with prisoner when he was taken up at Brinklow.

    In summing up, his Lordship dwelt with great force on the contradictions in the statements of the prosecutor and the accomplice-witness. The jury consulted for about five minutes, and found the prisoner Guilty. His Lordship desired the Sentence of Death to be Recorded, but stated that he highly disapproved of the mode of conducting the prosecution, and had been disgusted with the prevarications of the prosecutor; he should, therefore, recommend the prisoner to mercy.

    Our dear loved one left us heaven to gain ;

    Few in this world her equal could find.
    Not gone from memory, not gone from love,

    Not a word to her loved ones did say ;
    Her eyes closed in death, as a babe in its sleep,
    And she silently passed away.

    Where sleepeth without dreaming
    One we loved but could not save.
    Fond thoughts may linger round our hearts,
    And tears may often flow ;
    But to that sad and lonely grave
    Our thoughts sill ofttimes go.
