He crept into bed and to sleep went at last, And dreamt of his power and riches, When a curious conversation lhere was pass'd 'Tween my lady's petticoat and my lord's breeches. 11 Ob, pray where have you been rambling all day ?"

The Rifle. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 18 April 1846
"ibo Rifle. I A strong musler of the S. R. C. took place on Monday, at the Water reserve. The shooting was spiritedly contested through- out, in consequence of the Club having now adopted the proper system of award- ing the prizes to the best general shot, (formerly the prize was given lo the nearest single shot.) The correct shooting of Messrs. Ander- son, Craig, Scott, and Aitkendead, created great interest-Anderson putting all his balls (nine) into the Target, at 100 yards Craig putting eight in like manner; in fact, all the . members evinced great im- provement in their shooting, and with prac- tice will become Riflemen of the first order.

Morp[?]th. MILLING EXTRAORDINARY. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 18 April 1846
I MorMUI, 4 -I MIXUÎÎG EXTRAORDINARY, . « Meet raeiuy moonlight «lone, AuJ «heu I will show you some fun, &c." Oto Saxa ALTERED. ON Monday, the 13th Instant, about ten o'clock, (not as in au y suppose, in the morn- ing,) but by way of variety, change being agreeable, by moonlight, a sporting affair came off in our heretofore quiet little vil- lage. The bitter animosity between the conflicting heroes, " Young Charley the Wlieelright, a Cornstalk, and " Jack Vul- can," alias Kill Thousands, a native of the Emerald Isle, had its origin in the paternal relation of " Kill Thousands'1 having im- pounded some pigs, the property of the Whei'lright's father; and Kill Thousands being employed IO do the dirty work of handing them (the pigs) into the safe cus- tody of the PonnUkeeper, who in pursu- ance of the powers vested in him by the Act of Council, sold them. The old sore, after slumbering some time, alas! broke out again, and to put a finish on the mat- ter, the heroes of the tale...
Pugilism, [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 18 April 1846
Pugilism, i THE environs of Milk Beach were enlivened on Friday last, by a slashing null, between Charley Weavers, the well-known " fighting coachmaker, and Rogers, alias " Typo," of Milling notoriety. After three .good rounds, the poor compositor was compelled to cry " Hold, enough," a flush hit on the konk having grabbed him, and when time was called, he was non-est.

nerrima. ! On the 5th Instant, a fight came off" on Hutchinson's Flat, about 2¿ miles from town, between two youths, of the respective ages of Í9 and 21 years. The match was, as far as we have been able to learn, for no stake ; but was said to have been ably contested on both sides. The youngest of the two aspirants for fistic fame, Jack Shepherd, came off victorious-we have been unable to learn his antagonist's name. Had we been in attendance, we should have been enabled to give a more detailed account. We hear there was a person taking notes, but on referring to your last publication, we see no mention made of the mill. _

Colonial Politics. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 18 April 1846
Colonial Politics« TUE Politics of this Colony are just now somewhat of an interesting not to say ex- citing nature, as there are connected there- with a variety of subjects of general interest, to which all those who " dabble" in such matters are looking-forward with no small degree of anxiety. It lias long been ex- pected, and is now generally understood, that our present Governor has been, or will be speedily recalled ; anti that the adminis- tration of public affairs in New South Wales will be undertaken by Sir Charles Fitzroy : yet, Sir George Gipps has convened an as- sembly of the Members of the Legislative Council for Tuesday, the 12lhof May next, a day fast approaching-from which it is to be inferred that Sir. George himself has no official reason to'believe that his depar- ture from these shores will take place so soon as some people expect, or as many of his friends (?) perhaps wish. It was always understood that the Council would meet early in the present year in oidér t...

BERRIMA. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 18 April 1846
BERRIMA THE CENSUS.-lt may seem rather late to make any remarks on the census ; we will therefore, merely state that the whole of the collectors em- ployed were (with one exception, we believe) in the police force. We perceive that G. U. A. has been circulating his pamphlets respecting the doings at Illawarra. THE WEATHER.-The weather, has been for a long time so dry that people have not yet began to plough. In many parts of the district on Saturday it blew a complete hurricane. Several out-houses covered with bark were unroofed, and it was almost impossible to stir out of doors. &nbsp; John Harrigan; who was found guilty of murder, has had his sentence commuted to transportation for life, and will shortly be forwarded to Sydney.

I Country News. PARRAMATTA. THE HIRED SERVANTS' ACT.-Being willing to award to the framer of the Amended Hired Servants' Act the credit of the possession of the best motives in his attempt to supersede the Old Act, which was worse than bad, it is to be trusted that when, by the ensuing assembling of Coun- cil he will have seen six months working of it, that on the true parliamentary system, he will biirtg in " An Act to Amend an Amended Act ;" for at the present time it is a very one-sided piece of legislation,and every day shows that il is made art-instru- ment to torture those who are compelled to live by the sweat of their brow. It is a sort of Procrustes bed, which is made to inflict punishment some how or other on all whom tyrants or suspicious masters, for all imagi- nary sorts of reasons, choose to subject to its influence. Take tbë following two cases which occurred at the Police Office on Thursday, they are given literatim et ver- batim. It would be superfluous to oner any ...
Windsor. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 18 April 1846
We ore indeed at a loss to accoaut for the sneer- ing insinuations nf the " Hawkesbury Courier", of late, with respect to the whereabouts of Mr. Fitz- gerald': such as " Captain Apperly aud friends honoured the race course with their preseuce, but Mr. Fitzgerald was nowhere to be seeu ;" or " sub- scription should be set on foot for Leichart, where, was Mr. Fitzgerald." Now, we beg leave to inform the Hawkesbury Courier,. that Mr. F. is from home upou his owu business, which should be the first consideration of every honest mau, but we have uo need to inform the public, who' by ocular demonstration can bear us ont that amore puuetual, attendant, complaisant, aud impartial magistrate does not hold the commission tuan Mr. Robert Fitzgerald, and that dnriug the mouths of relaxation from his private avocations he is never found wantina in his oublie duty.

A'CAUTIOUS WITLESS.-We admit the tenet al truth* of the* opinion, that educa ; lion and"' habit do much Ho give the iniriU beat au« colour-but there are some cal- lings "to which men appear born-a sepe raie species, designed by nature, to fulfil an appointed destiny. We have seen a convivial officer wear a suit of black, and look a very respectable clergyman, and it lias been our lot to witness many a very decent parson, look very like á groom or a huntsman. An official may be mistaken for the head waiter of an inn, and to the very green, a counter-skipper, togged up, may by chance, pass current for a gentle _ roan. * But about the genuine book-keeper there ts no mistake. The genus is distinct and characteristic-the creature has in- stinctive habits, utterly irrepressible, and physically stamped with the traits and character of his species. The veins and ..wrinkles of his skin put you in mind ot the epocha of his existence. The very tie of his cravat, is typical of the formal, corre...

¿Ila Podrido. -o ALABMIXO MUTTABY RIOT AT WINDSOB.-After the election of Colonel Reid, on Saturday last, from 80 to 100" blackguards-" the Eton boys"-endea- voured to get up a row in the town, but three or four of them having got rolled in the mud, the great body of them; cowed by the resistance they met with from the townspeople, made their way home to the College. The quietude of the place was, however, again disturbed in the evening. A little before eight o'clock several of the private soldiers in Colonel Reid's regiment, to the nnmbi'r of up- wards of 100, entered the town armed with thick sticks and staves resembling their stable broom handles, Crying out, " Down with the Wulterites," and " Colenel Reid for ever," and knocking down every person they met, without regard to age or sex. Inoffensive women and children were brutally at- tacked and assaulted-meu and boys knocked down, aud unmercifully kicked and cudgelled, and no one, however peaceably disposed, wijp cania within the...
