Sense and Nonsense. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 14 March 1846
Sense and Nonsense. At rt mooting of landowners and tenant farmers recently held at Stafford, for the purpose of peti tiouittg Parliament for protection to agriculture, tm following conversation took place bu tween a forme and Luid Iiigestre. He (Lord íngestre) agreed with the seconder o the resolution, thin if routs .were entirely abolished he did not think they would materially benefit tin tenant. A Farmer. Try it; my Lordi Viscount Ingestre. Perhaps you would wish thc landlords to be entirely without money; if sd, whal are we to do ? A Farmer. Sanio ns we do, roy Lord-make shift (loud laughter.) Of course thero was loud laughter. Ila ! ha ! Who ever heard so ridiculous a speech as this farmer's ? Tho idea of u nobleman making shift. The man will be the death of us. Ho Í ho ! We cannot help laughing at such tin absurd notion, even on paper. How would Mr. Hodges, or Joskins, or whatever the farmer's name is, have a,nobleman make shift? Perhaps he would wish him to alter his futilit...

BATHURST. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 14 March 1846
BATHURST. HARLEQUIN- PARSON-.- We hnve hoard of a worthy divine in our town, who is possessed of a solitary peach-tree that hos this year borne fruit and who, on missing, or faucying he missed, som¿ half dozen peaches, jumped over his neighbour's fence and crossed his land, in order to gain readier access to the residence of a constable. All this display of agility and activity, and this act of tres- pass, committed in the reverend gentleman's zeal, was to report to tho constable the important fact that he, thc said reverend gentleman, lind been robbed of a pennyworth of peaches. Wc would warn this gentleman not agaiu to take such un- warrantable liberty, as the person on whose land he ou this occasion trespassed may not tamely submit to a repetition of these frisky jokes, so highly un- becoming the character of a clergyman.

Mr. Justice Willis. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 14 March 1846
Kr. Justice Willis. I SOME portion of the Port Phillip press is rejoicing in the small echo of the Captain of the Glenbervie, on his recent arrival at Melbourne, as to tho sayings and doings of Her Majesty's Privy Council, in favor of the above-named half jesting, half sneering JUDGE ? Captain Russell received the information just before leaving the Downs, on the 11th of November, and as he had no other God-send, he brought this Oral piece of intelligence, convinced that it would be interesting to the clique, who favored his ex-honor with their counten- ance. How our Port Phillip cotemporaries, could be hoaxed into such an absurdity, is to us a matter of astonishment. . Not- withstanding thc improvements made of late years in the rapid transmission of important decisions, more especially those, which ruling the destinies of Judges of the Land, are dependent on the resolves of the very highest courts of the realm, not one solitary typographical proof conies to add its weighty testimo...
The Victoria. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 14 March 1846
I Tl»« Victor»». I Business St this theatre ha» been pretty brisk lately, and the management is, we think improving in taste and judgment. This the public seem to appreciate, and the treasury, no doubt, shows a favorable aspect in consequence. The productions havo, since our last notice, been of a first-rate quality. We have had Faustus-an in- citing piece, and consequently well received, when got up and played in the creditable manner it has been at the Victoria. A new play entitled the " Mysterious Stran- ger," seemed to be favorably eneertained. We have also had Macbeth, Richard the Third, Rienzi, and A New Way to Pay Old debts ; in all of which the whole of the Company sustained their respective parts with great efficiency. We must not omit to speak of Nesbitt's Richard on Tuesday last, which we cousider deserving of our highest encomiums; in Sir Giles, we do not think he was " in the vein." On the whole, we feel bound to state that the great and judicious variety of entertain- ...

Goulburn Races, [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 14 March 1846
Goulburn Races, FOR the last few days our Town has as- sumed an aspect of unusual bustle and gaity, having been inundated by a mighty host of strangers, and on all sides the *. dreary wilderness" has given up its in- habitants who have come hither to see the Races. On Monday evening the entrances for the followjng day were made at Long's Caledonian Hotel, who, on this occasion, ïiad provided a sumptuous entertainment for his sporting friends; to all Guulbumites it is superfluous to add that Mr. Long's banquet was first-rate ; the liberality of "Alick," stands forward unrivalled, and is Hie means of procuring him the " golden opinions" of all. The morning of Tuesday arrived at length, and ominous dark clouds were apparent, suggesting thoughts of thick boots and a Macintosh. The sun howover obtained the mastery over the opaque clouds, and gleaemd forth through with great force and brilliancy. By twelve o'clock a vast concourse had collected on the the Course, and at 1 p.m. all prelimi...

Miscellaneous Extracts. WALKING ON THE WATER.-From Han- over we hear of a practical discovery of a Icind so curious as to require some further .explanation before we can quite under- stand it ; and we are rather suspicious, inasmuch as we have, or fancy we have some recollection of a somewhat similar story making the round of the continental Împers several years ago. It is given, íowever, in this instance, with an imposing detail, and the guarantee of names-if there be no borrowing of these for the oc- casion. The report is, that two young men, one a Swede and the other a Norman, taking the hint from that sort of boot gear of fir planks called skies, by means of which, in those northern countries, the inhabitants pass through valleys and ra- vines filled with, snow without sinking have been exhibiting in that capital the ex- ploit of walking on the water by means of skies-made, however, for the latter pur- pose, with ¡ron plates, hollow within. Back- wards and forwards, much at thei...
