The Rural Magistracy. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 July 1846

I Tba Rnrál Magistracy. VTE have received many letters from various ' rural districts, containing remonstrance! against tlie unwarrantable assumptions, ol the gentlemen in the commission : in winch it is alleged, that the great'and almost ir- responsible powers, with which they are invested, is not regarded as sufficient foi these lovers " of brief authority." Othei Correspondents havelaunchedtout into bit- ter and vehement censures upon the inex- cusable warping- of the law, to gratify pri- vate predictions, and to uphold unworthy favorites, in defiance of public opinion, and in contempt of private complaint. These addresses bear upon the /ace, in most in- stances, strong indications of the-upright ' and truthful intentions of the;writers ; but nearly all show that extreme lack of pru Î dence,which so frequently is discernable in men, who feeling confident in the justice of their cause, and being anxious to redress the grievance or oppression complained of, give themselves no furth...

THE WAY TO GET A VOTE. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 July 1846

THE WAY TO GET A VOTE. , The election for tlie borough of M-- >' was close at hand ; there were two candi- dates in the Geld, whose influence was so nearly balanced that a neck-and-neck con test was' expected. Under these circum- stances every vote was of consequence, and the utmost exertions were used by the friends of bath candidates to draw strag- glers out oftheir opponent's ranks. Amongst the staunch suppôt ters of Sir John Ti-. the Tory candidate, was an irritable old captain, who had threatened to set the house dog on any one who mimili come to ask him for his vote for a liberal. The morning before the election, the. old cap- tain was working in his little garden when he perceived a strange gentleman whistling along the w;tlk "Ah/ How dy'e do, captain? Nice crowing morning-pea« coining up nicely, I see," said the stranger as he approached. " I beg voitr pardon, sir, but I really don't remember bavins; the honour of your ac- quaintance ; may I be permitted to inquire vour b...

THE HORSE. CHAPTER II. THE DIFFERENT PORRION BREED OF HORSES. THE BARB. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 July 1846

TBS BOB38. CHAPTElt TT. TH* DlíFEBEST PORKIQÍÍ BREED OV ITOR3E3. : THF. BARB. IT lias already been stated that the earliest records we have of the horse trace him to Egypt,.whence he gradually found his way to Arabia and Persia, and the provinces ' which were colonized from Egypt: and thence to the other parts of the Old World. But Egypt is now a breeding country, and it does not appear to possess those requi- sites which could ever have consi¡tuted it one. Without, however, entering into the question whether the horse was prima- rily the inhabitant of some particular re- gion, whence other parts were gradually supplied, or whether it was common to many countries, but differing in each ;. we have stated it to be probable that the horses of Egypt, the earliest on record, were derived from the neighbouring and interior districts of Africa. Therefore, in giving a very summary account of the most celebrated and useful breeds of different countries, it is natural to begin with those of A...

PYRMONT. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 July 1846

PYRMONT. THE most peaceful nook in the retired re cesses of Pyrmont, was on Saturday las scared with the " din of strife," in conse quence of James Phelps, a Sydney cove having most blindly and criminally preferrei the acquisition of sordid money, to the re gard ot'one of the fair denizens of that ro mamie and secluded locality. It will be needless to glance at thehapp; terms of amity which formerly existed be tween *' Jeames" and the charming Mrs Harmond; until his taste for petty gain: prevailed ripon the youth to prefer thc promptings of Plutus to the blandishment: of Cupid, suffice it lo say that an ill-starrer, bargain between the lady's mamma and tin covetous swain ended in his deciding tba the " four purni too" gained in the pur chase of a cart was better than Betty': smiles. From Jthat time friendship was re nounced, and on Saturday last, Phelps either urged by his fate, or induced bj the calls of business, left his peaceful abodi in Cumberland-street, and proceeded ti Pyrmo...

The advantages arising from the existence of a liberal association of sporting gentlemen, whose sole aim has been already stated, must bc apparent to every well wisher, not only of the local Turf, but of the Colony; and although it is granted that a self-styled JOCKEY CLUB dnos at present exist, the warmest adherent of exclusiveness must vaguely enquire "whence is derived the right of dictation it assumes? Who gave that body power? or upon what pretentious has it buen organized."

BELL'S LIFE IN SYDNEY. SATURDAY, JULY 11, 1846. Sir George Gipps. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 July 1846

BELL'S LIFE IN SYDNEY. SATURDAY, JULY ll, 1840. .Slr George GlppB His Excellency the Governor holds a levee this day, at Government House, at half past twelve o'clock, prior to his embarka- tion on board the Palestine, which is to convey him, his lady, and suite, from these shores to their native land. May they ex- perience a prosperous voyage, 'and reach their destination in safety; and may Sir George enjoy, for many years to come, in the bosom of his family, that health of body and peace of mind which were far from being his lot here. We feel assured he will take with him the blessings and good wishes of, by far, the larger portion of this community, over whose interests he has so zealously watched, and to promote which he has so earnestly and indefatigably la- boured ; and that, too, in a manner which, to our thinking (spite of all that has been advanced to the contrary), has displayed the strictest impartiality, the most perfect uprightness, and the best intentions.

The Metropolitan Police. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 July 1846

Tno Metropolitan Police. IT has occasionally been bur duty to make stringent comments upon the grievous abuse of the authority committed to the police, their powers being often warped to un- worthy purposes, greatly to, the annoyance, inconvenience, and injury of the citizens. The police, however, have rights and claims as well as every other class of the community, and they, no less than any other number of citizens, are entitled to have their grievances noticed, especially as i the injury under which they suffer is ex- ceedingly easy of redress, and, moreover, the public interest is mixed up in some de- gree in the affair. It is at present the practice of the powers Bhat be to pay the force on Saturday after- noon, at which time the yard of the police ßfficeis crowded with constables, who some- times linger hour after hour about the court house, in expectation of the arrival of theil weekly pay. Meanwhile the safety of lire and property depends more upon the for- bearance or indol...

" Eyes Right." " I stand upon the watch-tower." [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 July 1846

" Eye» Right." I " I stand upon tho watch-tower." IN one corner of the city lives a lantern jawed, greyhoundish-looking mongrel, who formerly had established for himself a savage and infamous notoriety, as a ruthless despe- rado, well adapted to the despicable calling which he formerly followed, as a turnkey at the Derry jail. Redolent of every vice that could shed a fiendish lustre around gra- duates in gallows honors, from the hungry pudding r swimmer to the blood-thirsty assassin, this victim to vitiated desires has at length hit upon a scheme worthy of the choicest promptings of the great High Priest of Hell, who teaches his favorites, with ari amusing-appearance of sincerity, to' " Plead religion if thou wilt, To hide thy practises of guilt, - Since those who live by deeds of shanie Are sticklers for religion's fame." ; , ¡ And, in accordance with the instructions of this thoroughly-competent monitor, and, further, with , the assistance of a hireling scribe, who is willing for ...
