Zooal Intelligence. PETITT'S SOUTH HEAD HOTEL.-We are happy to observe that the invitation to this marine and convenient Hotel, for the purpose of shooting for a Gold Cup, was well attended on Monday last. Without exaggeration Petitt did all he promised in the way of dejunie and refreshments. The competition for the Cup, which was to have come off by Riñe Matches, was mutually agreed by those on the ground, should be won by Pigeon Shooting. Thir- teen entered the lists, and the Cup was won by Mr. Nicholas Newman.

Dr. Lang's Libol on the Jews. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 April 1846
Dir. Ziang-'s Xiibol on tno Jews. I was told by a magistrate oí the territory (says tiie Veracious clerical, in a letter to the Editors of the Sydney Morning Herald) that in conversing with a respectable mer- chant of the Jewish persuasion in the town of Melbourne, on the subject of the re- sumption of immigration, and the possible influx of as large and disproportionate a number of Irish Ruinan Catholics, as had arrived in that district, from the 1st Jan- uary, 1841, to the 30th of January, 1842, the Jew observed, ' that if these people were to be brought out for thc future in the same proportions as formerly, every Jew in the place would leave it", they would consider tue country as doomed." Here is a pretty old woman's tale ! which those who have known thc liberality of Mr. Lyons, and other respectable gentle- men of his persuasion in their subscriptions towards the erection of that beautiful Ca- thedral, St. Mary's, ns well as in the sup- port of its venerated founder, would not...

The lad did not know him in his shooting-jacket, and said he was waitiug for his muster, who belonged to a merchant brig, and he had orders not to stir from the beach, so he could not do it. " Let us take the boat by force," said Hood,' " tlie owner will not «Tare to grumble." " For that very reason 1 wou't allow it. - I have marked the boy dawn for a good one," was Nelson's auswer j " I would rather swim pu board, at the risk of being drowned, than do au unjust and tyranical act to one who flore ilot resent it.

Death of Christian Urban, [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 April 1846
Death of Christian Urban, Christian Urban, first alto of the Royal Academy of music j expired at Paris in No- vember. He was a consummate musician, and highly esteemed in the musical world. Short, ill-shaped, invariably wearing a sky blue coat, and dining every day at thc same table at the Café Anglais, Urban was well known for his originality. But whai above all distinguished him was an extreme devotion, the minute practices of which hi scrupulously followed, he went to mas: every day of the week, and on Sundays attended every service.-At night, he brought with him to the opera orchestre pious books, which he read with unctior whenever he was permitted to quit his bon for a moment. You will ask why so de- vout an artist had engaged at the opera, He deplored it, but had been obliged tc enter the band. Urban had at first devoted his talents to sacred music, but it had not yielded him enough to live upon, and necessity had thrown him into the dramatic world a theatrical musician. AU t...

PUG.-From the latest intelligence receîveil (Bell'« Life !n London, Nov. 30.) it seems that the match between Caunt and Bendigo had not been closed, though a previous number of the same Journal led ns into a belief to the contrary.

&oeal XntelUrenca. I BOOK- STA H.S.-The facilities afforded I for the disposal of stolen books by the proprietors of book stalls in Sydney, call for an immediate check. We did hunt down that species of pawnbroking which held out encouragement to theft of another description, and are now determined to give the receivers of stolen books the quietus. It is become next to impossible for an individual to retain a book in his possession on which he sets any value, so long as the thief can get an unprincipled purchaser, and when the bargain Í3 closed, the book is laid in plant, till some gentle- man from the interior enquires of the book- seller if he have got a book of such a des- cription, when it is immediately produced from its hiding place, and a profit of 100 per cent obtained. This we understand has been the fate of a book of Mr. O'Don- nell's, advertised in another part of our paper, and has been the fate of several others, no doubt.

SECOND DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 April 1846
SECOND DAY. Yesterday beiug thc second day for the exhibition of the " tinfish" prowess of the province, not less anxiety as to the result was apparent than in the former day. True it is that the Van Diemonians being beaten out of tho field on the previous day, Paul Jones would not again chance his " blushing Dis-houors," but as Petrel the victor of the Town Plate, was expected again to compete for tho palm of victory in tho Ladies' Purse, the event excited no little uttention. The morning was anything but propitious, the bright disk of tho ann being " sicklied o'er with the pule face of care," obscured with vapours, clouds fco., so thal those who consented to forego the first day's fun, were sorry for their bargains, when be- holding the shocking bad day they were likely to enjoy. However, as the hours of egress from Mel- bourne approached, the god of day brightened up and got iuto good humour, the tear from his eye begau to vanish, and first commencing with a pen- sive smile, abou...
