RACING RULES. ' . To thc Editor of Bell't Life h iSyliiey. . GENTXKMEÍÍ,-As tho Jockey Club commit too nie now occupied in rovising their rules, it scents a good timo to remark upon those of Colonial raoing generally, or it least so far as they aro carried out in Kow South" Wale?.

BALL'S LIFE IN SYDNEY. SYDNEY, JUNE 22, 1861. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Chronicle — 22 June 1861
BALL'S LIFE m SYDNEY. SYDNEY, JUNE 22, 1861. TUR " Sale of .Liquors General Licensing Act of 1861" to be in roduced to Parliament by Mr COWPER, during the next session, does not in our opinion provide such, a relief from the annoying and unnecessary restrictions to which they are now subjected, as the Licensed Victuallers have ; right to: expect. As it has been calculated th it the fees for licenses during the current year will amount to £59,000, and the Ctistoms revenue, in connection-with the trade has been calculated at £408,000, it is manifest that those engaged in an ^ 'occupation involving interests to the extent of ^ toeñrly HALF A MILLION STERLING; are justly en- titled to a liberal consideration on the .part ol' the .Legislature.:/ There may have been a period when-circumstances,, rendered it necessary that *. stringent-regulations should,'bc enforced, and a '. ^surveillance kept upon those who followed the oc eupation of Licensed, Publicans.

Great Billiard Match between Mr Botarte and Mr Hughes. .If-we mar judge from'the excitement that this fasci- nating game ii eroating now-a-daya, and from the crowded gathering of spectators present at nearly every match of importance, ire, should decidedly aay, in commercial phraseology, that hilliards aro "looking up."

Hall, of Port- land Head, died on Thursday last from strangulation of tho Ilium. ¡Tho loss is incalculable ; not only to Mr Hnll, who Rave a long prico (nearly £400) for tho horse, but to tho district in which he was standing, as it is hard to roplaco such a horse.
