THE POLICE. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 17 October 1846
THÉ POUCE. i IT will not be attempted to be denied " that the Police Force cf Sydney is a mos useful and necessary body; and that to il vigilance are the citizens mainly indehte Tor the protection they enjoy of their live and property. We know of no instance c a serious robbery* or burglary in Sydney thal the delinquents were not speed"! brought to justice, through the indefati°;a ble instrumentality of the police; and w are in possession of many, instances wher those functionaries, thrqusrh their vigilanc and activity in obtaining information, wer enabled to prevent the commission of rob liçries th.it had been planned weeks pre vious, and to effect which thc parties wer only waiting a favorable opportunity. Wit these facts before us, it is not loo much t say, that the citizens ought to feel an in terest in seeing.the , constabulary properl and adequately remunerated -in seein them removed from indigence, and -: thc temptations associated with such state. - In 1844, the City Council...

The United Service Magazine &lt; for May, contains a clever paper on -Military in- struction, by the unflinching Colonel Fire- brace, an extract from which we give : '* Tho fortunate discovery pf amalgamating the two baso metals, purchase amt pntronage, deserves to bo registered, by patent, an nu improved method of 'getting on in tho-Army.'-.-Formerly, when youths were to be provided far, who lind no claim whatever for Service, they were placed on the Stuft", arid if n successful action was fought tltcy were sent home with the dispatch, ns if despatches could not arrive miless-borne by a stripling of the Staff; probably it mny be for »vant of this guardian ansel that the dispntohes from ludia lineo lately played such vagaries.

Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 17 October 1846
Obituary. &nbsp; We regret to announce the decease of Miss Louisa Maria Black, second daughter of the &nbsp; respected Cashier of the Bank of New South Wales, John Black, Esq. The late lamented young lady died on Sunday, the 11th instant, after a painful and protracted illness, following to the grave, with a heart-rending fatality, a younger brother who ex- pired suddenly at the residence of his father, but a few days previous. If the sympathy of sincerity can avail anything in ameliorating the agonising dis- tresses of such parental affliction, Mr. and Mrs. Black's cup of misery will most certainly be deprived of its bitterest dregs. The mortal remains of the lamented lady were conveyed to their last sad resting-place on Wednesday morning last.

Another week has rolled ¡ts fleeting ments down the current of Old Time s the date of our last communication, has left little more of the " wreck of i ter" for the contemplative mind to d upon, than an unsettled opinion as to propriety of representing Time ns a sire while so many have contended for stricter propriety of depicting him ns . -old gentleman.

LETTERS OF THE KINGS OF ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 24 October 1846
LETTERS OF THE KINGS OF ENGLAND. ! These letters are now first collected fr the originals in royal archives, and fr other authentic sources, private as well public. They are edited by Mr. Jar Orchard Halhwell, F.R.S., and are de catcd to Miss Agnes Strickland, the ¡ thoress of the " Lives of the' Queens England," as a "slight testimony of este and respect." Mr. Halliwell has also ( riched the work with an eloquent hislori introduction and notes. How admiral correct is thc commentary of the uri upon the limited and . confined system public and University education in tl country-a system which " leads our si dents to place greater importance upon t deeds of Xerxes or Alexander, than those of later heroes, whose triumphs reverses have been productive of more se sible effects on the constitution of socie and nations in more recent times."

PICTON. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 24 October 1846
I -- [ PICTON. 1 beg to forward you a report of a case tb at was heard at a country police office about a week since. I au) a far up-country settler, and hare heard but little relative to tho alteration of the laws, or, in fact, anything else, for uearly two years, and it was on my way down to sydney that I heard (as I thought) a very extraordinary case, but I have siuce been told that the law on evidence hus been greatly altered. Perhaps you will be kind euough to in- form me and the public if such be the case. The fol- lowing are tho particulars :-Three persons, oue a large stockholder, and tho other two his stock keepers, were charged with killiug a poly heifer, with intent to steal the carcase. The prisoners were do feuded by a solioitor. The justices (two in number)' rather demurred to the solicitor appearing in their behalf, but at last decided that if he did not inter- fere too much with their ordinary course of con ducting such cases, he raigbt appear for them, and cross exa...

Police Kop o rta . CHARGE OP INEBRIETY.-On. Monday, a little man named Joseph Cousins, not much above four feet high, dressed iu tight card inexpressibles, a ' yellow vest, surmounted by a green Newmarket, aud wearing a hage head, with a singularly phos phorio nasal eminence ou its facial aspect, was in- troduced to Cuptaiu Iunis, on the very serious charge of having on the previous evening " put an enemy in his moatb to steal away his brains;"or,in other and more moderu phraseology, of having re- galed his inner man, witli such an allowance of brandy aud water, as to lose all command over his movements' Being duly primed sud loaded iu this respect, he felt a sudden desire to perambulate the city. The deed was only second to the thought, aud accordingly he launched his well-stored persou on George-street, and staggered along after a most eccenlrie style till he arrived at that geutlc inclina- tion of the way, denominated' Brickfield Hill.

LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.- FRIDAY. j IN answes to a question from Mr. Cowper, the Colonial Secretary said that thc de- fenceless state of the harbour had been under consideration, and that the Home Government had placed a sum on the esti- mates for the purpose of remedying defects, but the determination of the British Parlia- ment wis not yet known. Dr. Bland's motion for an address to the Governor, to have £100 a year placed on the estimates asa pension for the widow of the late Mr. Justice Kinchela, was, after some discussion, met by the previous ques- tion, which was carried, whereby the motion was negatived. Mr. Cowper's motion for a call of the house on next Friday week was also nega- tived, but as Mr. Wentworth thought the Report of the Transportation Committee would be brought up on Tuesday week, Mr. Cowper gave notice that on Tues Jay next he should move for a call of the house on that day week.
