' ' AMUSEMENTS, &C.--Passing by the Black Bull Inn oh Thursday, the 30th ult., we observed a bullock spitted, and prepa- rations making for roasting him, in com- memoration, as we were informed of Mr. Tait's 'opening the Inn ; in consequence, however; of the very inclement state of the weather,* it was deemed impossible to roast, and we expect, the bullock was very judi- ciously put in cask. We also noticed that the sign of the Black Bull had undergone a retouch, and looked very, fierce arid grand. , , BALI, AND SUPPER.-On Monday the 3rd August, a ball and supper came off at the Elephant & Castle, kept by Mr!

Country News. [FIIOM oun OWN COBUESPOXDENTS/] KING'S PLAINS. A short time since, having been induced to visit King's Plains, I was so much pleased with tho country that 1 almost determined to become a resident in the district, and therefore exerted myself during ruy sojourn in gathering all the information- I could relative to the place. The climate is ex- ceedingly healthy (being mote like that ol Old England than any pan ot tlie Colony 1 have yet visited). The. country is well wavered at all seasons, and thc soil is, for the most part, very, rich, producing abun- dant crops. The extent, of land already ploughed for wheat this year is very, great. The population, which is pretty numer- ous, is composed- (with the exception of a. few large sheep-owners) chiefly of small farmers, who cultivate a few aerea of laud each, which, with a team of working bul- locks, and perhaps a few cows, is in general all the property they are possessed of, so that the chief dependence wnich they have fo...

The Trap's Tear. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 8 August 1846

Tbe Trap's Tear. Around the Court he stared, To take a fitful glimpse, Of the witness box, aud swearing book, And his many BUFVER pimps, He listened to a sound Tbat was dreadful to his ear, And the lobster leant upon his staff, To wipe away a tear. Then, on the court house floor . Stood Bob upon his pins He talked about benevolence, And Cues for topers' sins He raised a prayer for those Who want and sickness bear, But the lobster snivell'd while he spoke, And wiped away a tear. Yet do not deem bim weak, To other moves he's fly, And ruthless is the lobster's heart, Tho' a tear is in hts eye ; Go ! count the slaughtered pups, Whose tails ia heaps appear, And see ! the lot that's largest-his Who wiped away a tear.

The omission was a severe blow, because it had been resolved by the Council that they should proceed to meet His Excellency in procession, of which the fojlowing was to have been the order. I First, the messenger to the York-street j Hall,dragging on a truck the seventy guinea Civic Chair, this being 'the sole dignified ar I tide belonging to the Corporation.

The [?]enevolent Asylum. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 8 August 1846

.-.-: I Tba Benevolent Asylum. I Mn. G. R. Nichols, addressed the sitting Magistrates, on Wednesday, regarding the present mode of appropriating- the fines levied for drunkenness, which, for some years past, had been applied, one moiety to thu ; informer,and the other to the General Revenue of the Colony.; but according to the law the money so paid to the Colonial Treasury ought to have been paid to the Benevolent-Society for the benefit of the poor. Until the year 1842 it had been the practice to pay over the 5s. fines to the Benevolent' Asylum, and. in cases of higher fines, it was divided, between the Queen I and the informer, tinder the 66 and 80th clauses of 2nd Victoria, No.- 18. Mr. Nichols continued to " remark that about -the year 1837, it was discovered that the moieties of the fines inflicted, ought justly to go to the Asylum ; and to effect this ob- ject the 6th Vic.,' No. 13, was passed in August, 1842, the second clause of which provided ; that when the fine did not ex...

Theatricals. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 8 August 1846

Theatricals. THE Bridal still continues in favor, and was repeated twice during the week, with considerable improvement ¡ri the acting of the principal characters, if Spencer and Nesbitt may be so called on the present occasion. The latter was miserably tame and common-place, with the exception bf two or three instances. The scene wherein the victorious soldier upbraids the royal profligate with his baseness was, however, a creditable performance, though slightly leaning towards-Nèsbitt's'bèseUing sin of ranting. Amintor was admirably sustained, and proved the gem of; the piece, an issue we have observed more thau once when Griffiths lins been placed as second fiddle to the other. Evadne was, by the skill of a talented actress, raised to the principal character, she having the advantage of beiug brought into connection with most of the best passages assigned to the King, Amintor, Melantius, &c. Altogether the piece went off satisfactorily, and is likely to continue popular f...

This tather heavy windfall will perhaps prove the parting morsel, with which the hungry chops of the police will be grarad ; Mr. Nichols having ou the following day, to the intense dismay of the force, shewn the presiding magistrates, that those Unes should find their way into the Benevolent Fund, excepting such proportion as the Bench thought fit to award to the common informer.
