Dreadful Gale Encountered by the Maria . A.n..,, j ., Some». THE distressing events that attended the accidents.the Maria Somes, transport, en- countered in the hurricane of the end of 'March;- and the unfortunate loss of the lives of several individuals, have led us to make moire than an usual inquiry of what, tobk'place. The above vessel left Ceylon on 'the U2th : of March', with 318 men of the 90th Regiment on board. On the 25th of March it blew a strong gale with heavy squalls, rain and lightning; on tlie 26th the weather became worse, the squalls ¡were¡terrifie, the ship laboured very much, and was hove to under a close-reefed mizen 'topsail and mizen trysail. At the .latter part of : tin's day, the gale increased to a perfect.'hurricane, attended with rain and lightning, to the eastward, the sails were split and replaced, by a tarpaulin in the mizen rigging-,»and the pumps were kept constantly- going.

country Wows. WINDSOR. I hare just this moment heard from a source upon winch I can place every reliance, that our worthy fellow-townsman, Dr. Stewart, had been ap uppoiutcd to the Commission of the Peace, a cir- cumstance, which not only reflects credit ou thè'dis crimiuatiou of Sir George Gipps, but will be hailed with universal' approbation by the inhabitants of this district. It was my intention at a future time to discuss the Bubjcct of magisterial appointments, and briug our long tried and manifold grievances prominently forward ; but the ." necssitus rei" is at an end, and whatever have been the wants, incon- veniences and omissions hitherto, I trust they are now on the eve of a speedy aud prosperous amend- ment. Thc gentleman whose appointment I speak of, has long had the happy enjoyment of undivided public esteem, has experienced the " sumtni honores" of his profession, aud is in every way well suited for tho high and responsible duties of his new office.

Country devra. - WINDSOR. I aro sorry I oonld not redeem the promise I made of writing last week, but circumstances oc- curred to require my presence in another district, and I was therefore obliged to forego the " de lectabilem speram pro ueccssaria opera." However, , as 1 said some matters of public. importance re qnired n little notice, I will as briefly as possible refer to them. The first, " in point of honor as of order," is the. post office, and it may probably be fresh in thc memory of some of our townspeople that the " great diurnnl" devoted a leading article not many weeks since to the contemplation of thi&lt; subject; the results ot such a " gracious considera- tion" on the part of your influential contemporary were expected to bo soon satisfactorily devoloped ; but nias ! after anticipation had reached ¡19 highest pitch, we (iud the whole affair resolved into apathy and indifférence. Why is it that we have hitherto failed in redressing thc grievances that ot pres...

Mary, for. that was lie name, was taken sick, and her lover hear- ing of it, posted off'to see his lady love. At the door he met-Mr. Brown, and in- quired about Miss Mary's health. She's very sick, said he.--Can't I see her said Weller.-No, no,, what can you do for her? said the old man. : What can I do for her, reiterated the -lover.

Original Corrosponaenoe. g^. The Editor does not identify himself with the ; opinions expressed by his Correspondents, but merely gives insertion to such Communications as seem entitled to public consideration. To the Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. SIR,-Before my departure for Port Phillip, I wish tin's letter, to fulfil the promise made in my former one, viz., " to show that thè district of Port Phillip is certain to become head-quarter in racing, matters :" and in so doing I feel .sure that any candid reader will admit the truth of the reasons I am about to adduce. In the first place, the province of Australia Felix presents facilities for the rearing and tully developing the powers of &lt; the horse, to a greater extent; than any part atpresent occupied bf this great Island. The regu- larity of the seasons ; the excellence of the pasturage? and the fineness of the climate enable thè judicious breeder to enjoy the pleasure of realizing all his expectations. The brood mar...

BERRIMA. &nbsp; July 1st being the day on which the publicans' licenses come into force. Mr. F. Phillips on the occasion of removing to his new residence " the Surveyor General" gave a grand dinner party and ball. The persons invited comprising a con- siderable portion of the elite of the town assembled at 5 o'clock and did ample justice to the viands which we feel bound to say were of the most "recheree" description. , Among the ladies present, we noticed Miss Phillips the worthy host's daughter, Mrs. Merriman, Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Taylor, Miss Patrick, &c. Of the gentlemen Messrs. Hand, R. Foster, Patrick, Jana, W. Reilly, Taylor, Barlow, &c. After dinner, dancing was the order of the even- ing, and the vigour with which some of the ladies (Mrs Frere in particular) contiuued tripping it on the light fantastic toe, deserves the highest praise. A few songs sang with admirable spirit enlivened the hours . We would fain not be considered invi- dious, but we cannot ...
Impromptu. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 July 1846
Impromptu. View the beldame's withered face Scowl beneath her helmet gay View her scraggy charger's pace, Floundering o'er the dusty way. Binalong they call her dwelling Go along seems now her style Monstrous pads her figure swelling, All beueath her warrior tile. . Who the deuce would try to kiss her ? Soldier bold he needs must be ; If that helmet had a visor 'Twould improve her wondrously. Say, ye powers of grace and beauly . Powers that never lent her aught Seeks she still this martial lady To be tied in Hymen's kuot. SHE DRAOOOX ! thy doom is fixed Bold thy onset, but too late ; Age was never overcome by valour Uglinesshy folly great.. Dream not that the young policeman Will thy maiden blushes try ; Though you thought to Beck-him-on, . Beckhim-off will be his cry.
An Epicurean Rhapsody. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 July 1846
' An Epicurean Rhapsody. I Lovera may laud the rosy cheek, In sentimental stops, . But rosy cheeks'l care not for, , So I get-mutton chops. Or love-sick youths at breasts of snow May love's emotion-feel The only breasts that win my heart Are breasts of-lamb and vail. Or, at the sight of golden locks, Striplings may prate like parrots, But what are all your golden locks; Ah, what are they to -carrots ? Romantic folks may prize a tale That tells of loves so true The only tale with me goes down Is tail of-kangaroo. Sportsmen may boast their high-bred mares, And doat upon the beasts ; The only time I like a Mayor Is at the Civic feasts. Many admire the rainbow's hues, When Sol's on the decline ; The only Rainbow I care for, ....'." Is where I eo to dine. SAM WELLES.
Police Reports. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 July 1846
Police Reports. On Monday, the Bacchanalian Levee amounted to 28, a sere sign that the remarks passed last week were quite to the purpose. The tipplers cer- tainly have a fancy for the fatherly correction of Capt. Innis, and as the police are gratified in pocketing the fines, it is only' reasonable to infer that all parties are satisfied. ' ;. SWEETS, TURNED-TO BirrRRSi-^Henry Gipps, (no relation to our inestimable representa- tion of royalty,) was, before , the peep of. day, on Monday morning, unexpectedly grabbed by a med- dling policeman, whilst coming out of his master's yard, with an oversized dish of treacle ; the con- stable was rather curious why his industrious habits seduced bim from the arms of " Murphy" at two o'oiock, and Gipps answered the impertinent eitqttirj .by acquainting him that Mr. Graham, his master, not liking to prophane the sanctity of the Sabbath' had bidden him carry it out when the small - houri . came on. Mr. Graham, being called by the con ,. stable fr...

Xtocol Intelligence. SUICIDE ATTEMPTED. - On Tuesday afternoon, Constable Lucas, while passing through the Domain, discovered a mau ex- tended upon the ground near to Lady Mac- quarie'* Chair, and, on a nearer approach, he perceived his throat had been dread- fully cut. A razor was lying on the road at some little distance. The man was still alive, and was removed to the Infirmary; but his recovery is still douotful. He has been recognised to be Henry Sheppeck, a seaman lately, belonging to the whaler Margaret, arid has lately been often seen strolling through the Domain. A MAP BULL.-A mad bullock, the property of Mr. Peisley of Parramatta street, was unfortunately, allowed to get into the open thoroughfare on Monday, and commenced an indiscriminate attack upon every living thing that fell in his way : ,a horse was first gored near the Junction,and another horse, the property of a Mudgee settler, was afterwards attacked ; also, a person named Hall was in eminent danger, the furious ...

I beg, however, in conclusion, to add that, re- garding the present Market Act, as one wholly un- suited to the purpose for which it was intended, and misc...
