PUNCH'S NEW ROYAL MARRIAGE ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 January 1845

PUNCH'S NEW ROYAL MARRIAGE ACT. As tho Times very properly observed in its leader of the 25th ult., "it is really tempting Punch to keep on the statute book such a law as that which has resulted in the exposure bf such a variety of royal and noble nonsense as has been lately ob- truded on the world by tho publication of the late DUKE OE SUSSEX'S love-letters." The arithmetical question naturally occurs to us, if the DUKE OF SUSSEX was,- as all admitted him to be, the most enlightened of tlic sons of GEORGE THE THIRD, how much enlightenment remained for the remainder of the family ! ... To prevent similar rubbish being shot through the medium of the. Privy Council -into the public eye, we have drawn up Ü10 following ? NEW ROYAIi MARRIAGE ACT. , WHEREAS, by an Act of Folly passed in the reign of George III.',, and not to be surpassed in the'Treign of anybody,' it; was enacted, that certain royal personages could not marry without ' the- consent of the Sovereign:1 ' .-?

THE ARTFUL DODGER AS A STATESMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 January 1845

THE ARTFUL DODGER. AS A STATESMAN. Backed by a venal majority in the House of Commons, Sir Robert Peel thought that he might rule these kingdoms like an au- tocrat and get public opinion completely at defiance. For a time he was successful, indeed in doing, so, not one either Liberal or Tory, save ourselves, having had the hardihood , to utter a word against him. But to do the Tory papers justice, they now excel all others in the virulence and fre- quency of the attack upon him. The fol- lowing summary exemplifies his present favour with the Tory press at the other side of the water: The " Standord" brands him ns " ft man wholly unworthy of the lowest degree of trust ; a man of thoroughly proved incapacity !" and adds :-" His whole life presents hut one record of prostrations ; ex. gr., he sacrificed his principles to the acquisi- tion of a new place upon the currency question ; he sacrificed his principles to the preservation of place ou the test and corporation repeal bill ; he sa...

SIB,-Tue daring robberies which have boen committed by parties attachod to Iron Gangs in the vicinity of the City, leads me to draw your attention to a fact of frequent occurrence, which may in part account for the cool reply of the "overseei'' who professed to be no " constable."

English Extracts. EXTENSION OF THE GRAHAM SYSTEM. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 January 1845

î2jtglt0tj îSxtractô. -o EXTENSION OF THE GRAHAM SYSTEM. During the last fortnight disclosures of the most extraordinary character have been made in the ietter-carriers' office of tho General Post Office, from the discovery by the authorities of a most extensive collusion on the part of several letter-carriers em- ployed in the delivery of letters .in the western district of the metropolis, who, it appears, have been for some time in thc habit of opening letters directed to noble- men, gentlemen, and others connected with the sporting world, with the view, as far as we can learn, ot disposing of such in- formation for some pecuniary consideration, or betting themselves upon thu strength of it. From what has already been ascer- tained, there can be no question but that this illegal and most reprehensible practice has been carried on for a length of time, and that letteis both inward and outward have been thus treated, and their contents copied, tho letters being afterwards duly de'iv...

ANGLING. " Alios aliis studiis duei." [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 January 1845

ANGLING. [BY EP II EM EUA.] " Alios oliiß stiulüs duei." I will prove the Ball's Life the best medical journal in Europe. What a para- dox, you will at first exclaim ! But you won't end in the same ratio, after you have heard my reason for the . assertion. The Lancet is the only medical journal in thu empire ; all the others are sheer superficial stuffy mere bad leather and prunello.

Pedestrinnism. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 January 1845

eatrtani* nt¿ I ï *. THE VELOCIPEDE.-A rather singular match ia to come off, on the Parramatta road, within n month of this date, and of which we will give our readers timely notice: It seems that a gentleman, well known in the sporting circles, has undertaken " to ride a dandy horse one mile along the turnpike road between the first toll-gate and Parramatta,, without touching the ground with either hands or feet." We understand that £50 aside has been staked by the parties; the odds 2 to 1 against the rider. The extreme novelty of this match precludes us from passing any remark upon the subject, fur- ther than to inform our Australian readers, who probably are lost in conjecture os to the class and, order of the " horse" in question, that it is a rem- nant of English recreative mechanism, very much in vogue 25 years ago, amongst the gentry of Great Britain, and consists of two wheels, placed one before the other, connected by a curved shaft, upon the concavity of which is fixed by ...

The King. MILL BETWEEN PADDY O'HARAN[?]AND NED SHEA. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 January 1845

MILL BETWEEN rPADDY^O'HABANPAND ,. : NED SHEA. . . . . " . - This somewhat extraordinary fight took place on Saturday the 28th ult. in a field near Five Dock, and to adopt the literal phraseology of the combat- ants, was " for love and a belly full." The quarrel, resulting from tho news of'O'Connell's liberation, was demi-political in its character, tinctured with a dash of religious enthusiasm. Ned it appears is a north of Ireland man, and a presbyterian, while. O'Haran hails from tlie beautiful city of Bandon, in ; the finest and most fertile county in Ireland, Cork, and, ergo, is a staunch admirer of catholicity. . Short and sweet was the prelude, when forgetful3 of the usual pledge of fairplay, these patriotic ad- venturers iu the P.R. commenced .

PARRAMATTA RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 January 1845

PARRAMATTA RACES. After much exertion on tlie part of those interested in getting up some racing on the first day of the year, we are sorry to record the sad falling off of the once far-famed liberality of the inhabitants. A miserable £16 was all they could muster for four races, and we the more regret this, as we are confident such close fisted policy must war against the interest of the town. A town which is now putting forward its amazing and ridiculous pretensions for in- corporation, and should surely give some practical proof of its affluence and gene- rosity. Notwithstanding this, however, a good sprinkling of the neighbouring population and Sydney people appeared on the course, and at 1 o'clock the work com- menced, FIRST RACE.

SPORTING REVIEWER. The Turf. PETERSHAM RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 January 1845

SPORTING REVIEWER PETERSHAM RACES. We are rather late in the field to describe the preparations made by the host of the "Barley Mow" to afford the inhabitants of Sydney, and its environs, an additional opportunity of recreation. That hechas effected this however we may safely asserts as his colonial Hippodrome is laid out in a manner well capable of testing the power» of Racing Stock, easily convertible into an artificial steeple chase ground, and at all times available as the Red House ren- dezvous of New South Wales, where " single barrels" and " large bores" can be plied ad libitum, without molestation or inconvenience. As a race course it would be hardly fair now to judge minutely of it, since being in many places newly made the turf has not acquired that uninterrupted sponginess, so desirab'e for the galloping ground of valuable cattle; some of tho angles are also much too sharp, the declivity and ascent too severe, and there are other faults which time and experience may recti...

THE REPORT ON DOG STEALING. [From Punch.] [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 January 1845

THE REPORT ON DOG STEALING. . [From Punch.] We have:just received a copy of the Parliamentary Report on Dog Stealing, which is in a terrible dog's-eared state. The most interesting portion of the report is a manuscript, appendix, from which we have selected the two follow cases : CASE I.-Earl Grey had a very snappish dog called Brougham : he was a very sharp animal of the Scotch breed ; but so un- commonly.vicious that Earl Grey was look- ing out for an opportunity to-getrrid " of ' him. Having let his place to Lord Mel- bourne, Earl Grey gave him. the option of the Dog Brougham j but Lord Melbourne would have nothing to do with him. The dog was left to go astray, and for some time he used to come and lick the hand of his old master, who used to pat him on the head, and say "poor fellow," but he could do nothing for him. At last the old dog went and scratched at Lord Melbourne's door, wanting to come in, and waited pa- tiently for some time ; but at' last he" got rather savage and b...

ODD FELLOWSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 January 1845

ODD FELLOWSHIP. j SOCIETIES in which a number of men com- bine their money, their exertions, and their energies, for a common cause, are im- portant, and become frequently so power- ful, whether for good or evil, that too great care can never be exercised either in joining them, or in forwarding their par- ticular object. Ä gigantic combi»ation for a bad purpose, may become a public pest, and in a like degree, may one whose end is good, become a public benefit. There- fore, while every good and prudent man should avoid joining the former, he will, on investigation, support the latter. To those who have not become Odd Fellows, these remarks are principally addressed, and the writer's hope is to show them that the Society is good, that its objects are bene- volent, and that they will do well to enlist under its banners. The name of the So- ciety has been its principal disadvantage, and tho writer is willing to confess that Iiis own attachment to, or even endurance of one which is, at ...
