To the Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 April 1846
To the Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. Sin,-I beg through your favor to give my most positive denial to certain insinuations in regard to me, published in your Journal of Saturday last, from jonr correspondent at Wollombi. The man there insinuates-that the address to Mr. Dunlop from the inhabitants of the Macdonald River, originated with me, or at least, that 1 used influence in procuring signatures to that address. Now, I most unequivocally assert, that neither the one uor the other is fact-farther than in sub» scribing my name-I had nothing whatever to do with that address. I was not even consulted about tho propriety of presenting any thing of the kind ; it was drawn up without my knowledge, and at a distance of several miles from my residence, and, until it was presented to me for signature, I never knew that such a document was iu contemplation. Such, I declare, and no more, was the " laudable efficiency that characterised my zeal in the procure- ment of signatures to Mr. Diml...

Original Correspondence« The Editor does not identify Himself with the opinions expressed by his Correspondents, but merely gives insertion to such Communications as seem entitled to public consideration. To the Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. Silt,-I have perused with pleasure your leader on Saturday last, relative to the impropriety of sporting disputes being submitted to the adjudication of Courts of Law. The principle advocated by you, seems to have been considered by the Legislature, for by an Act of Parliament, passed last year in England, called the " Games and Wagers Act." it is enacted " that all contracta or agreements, whether by parole or in writing, by way of gaming or wagering, shall be null and void, and that no suit shall be brought or maintained in any Court of Law or Equity for re- covering any sum of money or valuable thing al- leged to be won upon any wager, or which shall have been deposited in the hands of nny person to abide the event on which any wager shall...

Tne Sydney Mecbanlcs'School of Arta. " It ¡3 manifest, that all government of actiuu is to lie gölten by knowledge, best, by gathering many knowledges, which is reading." Sift P. SIDNEY. A press of other, perhaps less important matter, »as prevented us from noticing the " Thirteenth Annual Report of the Sydney Mechanics' School of Arts," which has been lying: on our table for the last week or two. We cannot bul wish well to this Valuable institution, and therefore are highly gratified to find from the aforesaid rt-port that it bids fair tb approximate to, if not to rival, the old and highly favored Schools of Aits in Britain. lt appears that during the year 1845, 102 members were enrolled, and that the total number at the end of the year amounted to 328. The premises in which thc School and Library are, have been purchased, and Reading and Class Rooms have been erected on a portion of land running westward of the building, and in- cluded in the purchase, by which the pri- vileges th...

The Census. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 April 1846
I Tne Census. WE understand that the compilation of the returns from the several householders in the Sydney district is rapidly progressing, and that we shall shortly be enabled to come at the actual numbers of males and females residing in this part of the colony. We have examined the Form C., which is to contain an abstract of the returns, as it was passed by the Legislative Council, and it appears to us to be very defective in many points, more particularly as regards the showing correctly the state of education in the colony ; inasmuch as it merely exhi- bits the number of persons who can read and write, read only, or who are incapable of either, either under or above the age of twenty-one. Now under twenty-one, there may be many, who froroTtheir'tender years cannot be expected to be sent to school ; many who upwards of 14 and under 21, are totally without education, and from who the nature of their pursuits and other circum- stances, are not likely to avail themselves of the me...
THE LETTER. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 April 1846
I THE LETTES. I He rota in jai!, with scarce one hope on earth, A wretch that sacrificed to lore of play ; j Success, at first, to golden dreams gave birth, And fortune fluller'd only to betray. Large were his LOSSES, yet no loss detered, Those mischiefs followM, such as seldom fail : He gave his friends ('twas all h'd left) his word, He gain'd by HAZABD (as most do) a JAIL .' Seek not his future projects to reveal, Nor draw conclusions to prejudge the fact; In anxious dread (which most of you most feel) He waits the benefit of the INSOLVENT ACT.
The Gambler. "SEVEN'S THE MAIN!" [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 April 1846
Tn« a»mMer. « SETES'S THE MAI* !" "Tue Umps refract the gleam of parting day, : The weary vulgar hail the friendly night The GAMESTER hies htm to his darling play, And leads the way to deeds that shuu the light. Now reigns a dreary stillness in each street. And niorbd feuds are hushed in breathles calm, Bare where the votaries of Hodges meet. And springing rattles sound the shrill alarm. Save that from yonder lantern lighted walk, The drowsy watchman bawls with clam'rous din At such as stopping in the streets to talk, Omit the tribute of a glass of gin. Beneath that roof, that ruin fraught retreat' -Where beams the fanlight o'er the guarded door, ?Each wedgVl by numbers in his narrow seat, The faithless gamblers chink their current ore. The trist entreaties of empassion'd grief, The piteous tale of family distress'd, The strangers ruiu, or the. friend's relief, No. more shall raise compassion in their breast. For them no more the midnight rush shall burn, Or wearied menial be detain...

Trotting. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 April 1846
Trotting:. A sporting little affair came off on Tuesday morning last, from " Old Jack's," the Plough, on the Parramatta Road, to Shaw's at Petersham, for £10 aside. The rival nags were respectively the property of Messrs. Terence Daly, and Thomas Wild. The most singular feature in the race, which was won easily by Mr. Daly's Chesnut, was the awful hill, known as TAVERNER'S CRUTCH, up which the leader made a most spirited advance. Wild's Grey broke but once, nevertheless his chance was about as good as that of a grimalkin, in a certain place, without claws.

CIVIL SIDE. : . DELL V. SUTTOBl I This was hn action in trover, brought by plaintiff, as trustee in the insolvent estate of J. F. Clements, to recover the amount of certain cattle seized-and taken possession of by the defendant; to the preju- dice of the other creditors in the estate. ' Mr. Lowe fur plaintiff ; Solicitor-General and Mr. H. Suttor fdr defendant. This was.a case that excited much interest, hilt the result disappointed the expectations of many, we nu.y say, reasonable men, in a verdict for the plaintiff-damages, ¿£30. We hear that the defendant intends moving for a ucw trial, on the I grounds that the verdict was at variance with the evidence, We paid strict attention to the case, aud were certainly surprised at the result.
