THIRD DAY.—(THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 April 1846
THIRD DAY!-(TnunsD.w. I If, on,tue two former days' racing already chroni- cled in our columns, wo were enabled to show that the sports were " nut so dusty," it is to be regretted that in placing ou record the third day's racing, we with truth aud sorrow must add they were most particularly so, for.never within the.recollection of the Port Phillipian have such dense clouds of dust been witnessed, as those which enveloped thc lince Course.yesterday. Add to this a hot wind till one o'clock, and then the reader may imagine how keen must have been thc interest excited by the an- ticipated racing of tlie dayi in witnessing so many hundred persons present,-undcr such adverse cir- cumstances, to participate in thc sport. Fortunately, however, this stute of things did not continue till the end of the chjipter, for beforo the Hurdle Hace came on, the wind changed-to the cold quarter, slackened, and .left the racing ground sufficiently clear to wituess this always exciting and interesting run...

Hawkesbury Subscription Races, [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 April 1846
Hawkesbury Subscription Race»» ON the last day of this meeting the cours was more densely thronged than on eithe of the preceding ones, A report havin got wind' that a member of the swell mo was amongst the company, the precautio and anxiety of the Kurrajongers becam highly amusing. To be knocked dow: and robbed upon the highway, was t many a matter of which use had divestei novelty, but to have the dexterous am dexter digits of a plausible and decent!; attired imposter delicately insinuated inti the recesses of the Fob, or to find j 'vacuum upon the the new principle, wher the scissors has been substituted for thi air pump, would be a circumstance fraugh with astounding singularity to the untu tored denizens of the place. No wonder therefore, that the quaint looking indivi .dual, who for the three days had beer prouling .about the race course, and thc town should have been regarded with sus- picion ; since despite the ineffectual efforts .of gaudy "and ill-adapted dress-despite the...

English Extracts, [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 April 1846
English Extracts, TUE MANDARIN AND THE ENGLISH LADY.-The degraded position of females in China is well known. Nothing aston- ishes the China-men who visit our mer- chants at Hong Kong su much as the de- ference which is paid by our countrymen to their ladies, and tire position which the latter are permitted to hold in society. The very servants express their disgust at seeing their ladies permitted to sit at table with their lords, and wonder how men can so far forget their dignity. . A young En- glish merchant recently took his youthful wife with him to Hong Kong, where the couple were visited by a wealthy mandarin. The latter regarded the lady attentively, and seemed to dwell with delight on her movements. When she at length left the apartment, he said lo the husband, in his imperfect English, " Wat you give for that wifey wife yours?" ,", Oh," replied the husband; laughing at the singular error of his visitor, «'.2,000 dollars." This our merchant thought would appear to thc Chine...

Scandalo[?]s case of Seduction by a Clergyman. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 18 April 1846
Scandalous case of Seduction I»y a Clergyman. Au exceedingly heart-rending case of seduction hus recently occurred in the neighbourhood of Leeds; the cirunmstunces connected with which iure of Ute most monstrous kind. What adds to the bluckness of the crime is¡ that the perpetrator is a clergyman, married, and the father of a family of children. His name is Sweet, and he is the curate of Hunslet Chapel, Leeds. Tho victim is a young lady for- merly of excellent character, the member of a family highly respected by till who kuow them. It seems that the clergyniuu was introduced to the family while tho mother lay on her death-bed; and it was while he was enguged in regularly adminesteriHg thc consolations of religion that the seduction took place. Thc young lady became enceinte, and about three months ago suddenly left her home, none of her friends knowing whither she had gone. Their distress may easily be imagined. Suspicion, how- ever, fell on the clergyman ; aud the circumstances be...

Saocal intelligence» THE LATE BUSH FIRES.-Owing to the prevalence of the hot winds throughout the whole of Saturday, for which there has been no precedent within, the recollection of the oldest inhabitant, at this season of the year, the bush was on fire in several places. Between the Heads and Broken Bay the fire raged to a considerable extent, but the greatest injujes sustained were in the neighbourhood of Parramatta, the" vinyard and orchard of H. H. Macarthur, Esq., having been partially destroyed, and but for the spirited and intrepid conduct of the 58th Regiment there, would not be .a vestige of that gentleman's dwelling-house, outbuildings, or orchard.], remaining. Mr. Macarthur's fences and several others in the neighbourhood were, reduced to ashes. The exertions pf the military saved the fe- male orphan school ; but for them it would have fallen a prey lo the devouring element. A large quantity of sawn limber was. des- troyed^ whilst the sawyers were actually burned out, th...

To thc Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. CUMBERLAND SHARP SHOOTERS. Sin,-The above heading to many in this Co- lony would at once call up recollections of by gone duys, in either having belonged to that crack corps of Riflemen, or seen them cither on a field day, or ball practice. As it is not unlikely the Government at home, in making such additions to their navy, as also in the army, have had nn eye either ou the Autocrat of Russia in endeavouring to find his way to the Affghan couutry, or perhaps the redoubted hero of Algeria, waiting most impatiently formte decease of old Louis Thillip, now nearly 00 years of age and perhaps the doings of the French at Tahiti (ouo would think they wantonly butcher aud des- troy at that place on purpose to kick up a quarrel with England.) There is not much fear of brother Jonathan. To those who think on passiug events, must wonder what all the doings at home are in- tended fort and to those on the shores of England's distant Colony of New South Wu...
