THE KING FIGHT TO COME. August 1S. Bourke v. Waterhouse, JSÜOO. TOM Woons's BENEFIT.-This ^pugilistic exhibition was, ulllor no small difficulty, brought oil' on, Thursday night. In no way however could it bo looked upon us successful ; for, from tho fact of tho Police exercising their uuthority, no money was ullowcrt to bo taken at the door, and so the uifair could hardly bo called a benefit. Moreover, tho uncertainty as to whether tho room would be opened at all, kept many of the intending exhibitors away, and among tho ubsenlees were unforttumtely some of tho most scientific exponents of the manly urt of eelf defence. We are therefore sorry to have to record timi Woods, with ull his trouble, did no good. Although the amusements were so much shorn of their interest, there was somo vory good sparring.

THE LATE. MR. RENTON NICHOLSON. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Chronicle — 20 July 1861

THE LATE. MR. RENTON NICHOLSON. In our latest edition of last week we recorded the de- cease of this well-known contributor to the amusement   of the late-hour public, and who, under his pseudo-legal cognomen of " The Lord Chief Baron," had identified   himself with the exercise of a peculiar kind of talent, which had rendered his name familiar to a very wide circle of amusement-seekers. His death took place on Saturday morning, at the house of his daughter, pro- prietress of the Gordon Hotel, Covent-garden, and his last moments were calm and peaceful, and solaced by the attention of friends who had remained faithful to him through many changes of fortune. The immediate cause of his death was dropsy, and this, connected with disease of the heart, at last terminated his sufferings, after an illness of some seven weeks' duration. In an autobiography, which we published last yeur, Mr Renton Nicholson furnished some details of his   strange and eve...
