Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 25 January 1845

Local Intelligence. DIGNITY OF THE BENCH.–A great improvement   has taken place in this respect since the accession of Mr. Allen to the Mayoralty. Perhaps in no part of her Majesty's dominions have the anomaly of magistrates wearing their hats on the bench been, practised but in Sydney ; it is both irreverent (if we may use the expression, from the constant appeal by witnesses to the sacred scripture) and indelicate We believe that bashaw, Colonel Wilson, who, by the bye, never held so high a rank as that of lance corporal in the British service, was the first to set decency at defiance in this respect Alderman Wilshire, when Mayor, used to preside in the Police Court with his " tile" as closely stuck to his head as if it was his night-cap. Captain Innes, and several other magistrates, tulkJd on the bench   wearing their hats, with great "sang froid" as if   they were entering their hotel, and all this originating in the force of habit from, in...

FUNERAL OF MR. CHARLES SMITH. This tribute to departed worth took place at nine   o'clock on Thursday morning, from his late resi- dence, George-street, to his selected burial ground in the Newtown church-yard — his last home ! and certainly, if congregated thousands, from the Royal Hotel through George-street, past the old burial ground, where hundreds were assembled on its wall, rendering it insecure to keep either seat or footing, were brought up by an every-day occur- rence, it might pass without remark. But women came there with children at their breasts, scram-   bling with the crowd to get a last glimpse at the coffin that contained the mortal remains of him who had rendered support to themselves and fa- milies ! PROGRAMME.           The Reverend Dr. Steele, incumbent of Newtown,   in a carriage. Dr. Bland, M.L.C., and Dr. Bennett. The hearse drawn by four horses. Deceased's private gig...

HUNTER'S RIVER SETTLER'S SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 1 February 1845

HUNTER'S RIVER SETTLER'S SONO. "J'is twenty years, or nearly so, - . Since I first started fanning, And many curious things I've seen, And changes quite alarming ; For then, as gay as any lark, I worked till night from dawning, Then went to hed, and with the BUII I rose again next morning. So if the truth you'd understand. And wisdom you'd diskirer, Just listen to the oldest hand - Upon the Hunter's River. Soon my two boys grew strong, and then I set young Tom a mowing; While Dick wotdd help me make a fence, ' Or take a turn at ploughing. The girls, too-bless you, they'd no pride, (Though beauteous as a fairy), For Sue would sit and husk tlie corn, While Poll worked in the dairy. So if, &c. No stylish coats, nor women's dress Of satin, we were craving; Our wants were few-we all worked hard; And money fast were saving: So, very soon I bought the farm, (Cos' paying rent was shocking) I gave no bills-'twos all hard cash, Yet left some in the stocking. So if, &c. No stea...

THE CATTLE MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 1 February 1845

THE CATTLE MARKET. AT-the period'whén the présent site of the Cattle Market was decided.,on, it was se- lected, for the remoteness of its position from the "busy-hum" of' the theiv infant metropolis, which has now so far progressed towards maturity with gigantic strides, as completely to hem in the locality originally chosen. The consequence is, that tho lives and properties of the.inhabitants of Brick- field Hill; and the; surrounding neighbour- hood, ' (many of whom are dealers' in delf and crockery ware, .and are therefore ob- noxious.; to aßord,.mirth to, ¿is-interested. speculators, by thc ludicrous but (to them) expensive exhibitionof a " bull in a china shop," when wild animals escape from herds either, driven in for salo or slaughter,) are constantly-nay,? we might almost say-r-. daily placed in jeopardy, if not ' imminent peril, by the carelessness of the drivers, or- tho fury of the animals, which have been goaded to^*madness- by severo and cruel treatment on the road.

Pigeon Shouting. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 1 February 1845

Though a chaste and unique specimen of Mr. Birnstingl's manufacture was,upon the ground at Hill's Paddock, on Tuesday last, the 28th ultimo, the lack of entries to compete for its possession, induced Messrs. Whitfield, Gannon, and May, to withdraw, for tire first time in four consecutive years, " The Australian Silver Cup." The Sydney shots it seems are afraid to enter the lists against «the ''cracks" already named, still as there are at' present several first rate marksmen amongst "the officers of the 58th, now in Parramatta, wo certainly had booked the event to come off. The goblet bears n I most appropriate emblem of a irap-aliooter. in the act. of discharging, upon the one side, while a small blank enclosure upon the other, remains soliciting the trium- phant inscription of its winner.

Tho despairing state of mind in which the writer has wielded his pen as to the prospective scarcity of labour-the utter hopelessness of his circum stances ever being improved or more affluent than at present-tho overwhelming ruin which ho sees impending over his devoted head-and his know- ledge of the want of funds to keep tho tide of immigration flowing to Iiis wishes;-all bespeak him one of the celebrated Croaker Family pf Poverty Hall.
