Varieties: A PROJECT poa STARVING THÍ LAWYERS.-A Presión paper mentions tlie formation of an "Arbi- tration Society," in that town for the settlement of disputed accounts, ¿cc, without having recourse to the lawyers.' Nothing eau be more praiseworthy, and, we should hope, more practicable. The old,' and, in all probability,- trite saying, about the " devil sending Kooks," ia still more probable true of lawyers, considering the endless litigation and rancour they foment and occasion; It is a misfor- tune to have a body of persons in the state-and a flourishing Dody they are-Whose interest it is to stir up as many dissensions and tough quarrel» as they conj well knowing that whoever ldses they must gain; Arbitration in nine cases out of ten, wonld render law needless, and it does credit to the sensible people of Preston that they are wise enough to have recourse td it for the prevention or settle- ment of différences in the matter of money.

Original Poetry. LAYS OF THE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 30 August 1845

Original *o«trjr. J . LAYS OF THE* COUNCIL. I once lead a storr I do forget «here, Of an, ass that made noble lions to stare At bis countenance grave, as in council be sate, . And listened attentively to their debate. You'll wonder, no doubt, how the ass there got in . He was dress'd out complete ia a fine lion's skin ¡ Had he only listened it hod been well for him ; When I think of his fate my eyes with tears dim ;" He attempted a speech about something then said ; Brayed ont, was discovered, nnrob'd, and left dead. I'm told this does apply, or might be made. To one of our Town Councillors ; bnt which, Hind you, I do not say, nor have I said ; He may be very poor or very rich ; He is, perhaps, a soldier fierce, or tailor, Or smuggler bold, but in a LITTLE way, He is, perhaps, a government contractor, Or perhaps a smooth-faced, legal-pious actor. It might be one whose chance of this life's Flood Is passed, and he fast ebbing back to sea ; . Perhaps it is that youth of noble blood, W...

GREAT SALE OF FINE-APPLES. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 30 August 1845

GREAT SALE OF FINE-APFLÉS\ We call the attention of the Gardeners o New South Wales to the following extrae from a London paper, which shows that tin pine-apple ia becoming a staple article o commerce, being exported from the Wes Indies into England i i On Monday last, considerable ínteres: was excited among persons engaged in tht " Fruit Trade" at the sale of upwards ol 2700 West Indian Pine-Apples, by Messrs Keeling and Hunt, of Monument-yard.

In the domestic annals of our country, per- haps no parallel can be found to the doings at Belvoir Castle in the hunting season. All this, however, is so well,known that there is no necessity for dwelling upon it here, and I will only add my fervent hope, that despite the forebodings of the down- fall of foxhunting, the Belvoir kennels will never be empty, and that the Dukes of Rutiand for ages to come, will follow the example of the present possessor of Bel- voir Castle. And how can they better serve their country in private life? Fancy the benefit of two thousand pounds per week being expended, as it was expended for many consecutive years, amongs...

Port Macquarie. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 30 August 1845

Port Macquarie. I -o ; THE RACES.--The maiden races came off on Tuesday and Wednesday, the 19th and 20th of August, with great éclat. Tiie weather proved remarkably fine, and a large concourse of well-dressed persons thronged the course, comprising the elite and most respectable personages in the district and town. Owing to the excellent arrange- ments of the stewards, a very superior course was formed, which bids fair by the next season to be the best ia the colony. It is one mile and a quarter round, and the spectators have an uninterrupted view of the horses the whole of the way. We will not attempt any particular criticism on the training and riding of the horses, nor of their respective qualifications for running,, as, if all were noe perfection according to sporting notions, it was not for the want of either expense or trouble ; and we are satis- fied a spirit of emulation has been excited, which will bring forth great things at our next meeting. As a whole, we are certain no ...

The Turf. FIVE DOCK STEEPLE CHASE. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 30 August 1845

...... The Turf. FIVE DOCK. STEEPLE CHASE. THIS exciting event in thc annals of our sporting history was ushered in by what the Vicar of Wakefield's punster would have described as a " concatenation" of circumstances, each of them more or less interesting to the embryotic Esaus of.New South Wales. Nor is it at all remarkable that so deductive a trial of both man and horse should take precedence of our anxie- ties for a while seeing that though enterer! into as a public pastime, it not only aims at, but is sure of attaining far more im- portant results. To the greedy speculator, or thc open-mouthed and wondering novice, who innocent of higher views, look upon such a scene merely to gratify the senses or the passions, these considerations will not perhaps be understood and certainly not appreciated, but amongst the leading promoters of this race, we feel that a far more worthy principle was uppermost ; a principle which involves most seriously the dearest interests of this colony.

THE CITY COUNCIL VERSUS THE POLICE CLERKS. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 30 August 1845

THE CITY COUNCIL VERSUS THE POLICE CLERKS. ON Wednesday last a petition was pre-, sented to the Legislative Council, by Mr. Lowe, from the Clerks employed at the Police office, in which was set forth the reduction of salaries on several occasions, and particularly at the instance of the City Council, and playing that although they may not he placed upon the increased scale of pay to which they were entitled by length of service, they might still be re- stored to their original salaries, and receive payment of their arrears ; they also drew attention to a mis-appropriated fund of £1500 in the hands of the civic authorities arising from the revenue raised for police purposes from which they could be indem- nified, and annexed a table shewing the length of each petitioner's service. With the cause in which this Petition originated we have not patience, and whilst we will not fail to hold up to public indignation any flagrant act of injustice by the police authorities,-we would be wanti...

THE FRENCHMAN AND HIS HORSE. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 30 August 1845

THE FRENCHMAN AND HIS HORSE. OY NIMROD. %Virn the 'exception of a few of the aris- tocracy of Paris, and such of their coun- trymen as have visited England, and so- journed there for some time, it has always struck me that a Frenchman! was never intended to mount a horse. At all events, ?he never appears less at his «ase, or so little to advantage, as when he is seated in a saddle. He seems to look upon the horse .as a mere beast of burthen, or of draught, and is, therefore, quite unable to appre- ciate him os we do, in all his nobleness of character, and as contributing to an almost infinite degree, .to the pleasures, as well as to the convenience of man. But we cannot- be surprised at the little pleasure a Frenchman takes in the services of this noble animal. In the first place, his system of riding-not rising to the ac- tion of his horse by the aid of his stirrups, destroys his enjoyment of him in his most ordinary, as well as most enduring pace the trot' For one horse that can c...

WATER POLICE DEPARTMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 September 1845

H WATER POLICE DEPARTMENT. We heartily acquiesce in the opinion of icotemporary, relative to, the absurdity of Ilk project for re-establishing the expensive 'machinery of this department, on the old system, as it was carried on under Capt. Brown, which is prayed for by a certain cüqueof the mercantile body, for the pur [ose, as we suppose;, of installing some sea monster'' into a warm berth on shore. We can only vouch for ,thè accuracy of larcotemporary's assertions j that the whole cf the official details of the department jure been conducted by a Police Inspector |-and the whole of the magisterial duties jvlici bear an insignificant proportion to tieordinary business before the bench ;Wbeen more satisfactorily; more expe sütiously, and less expensively conducted, face the abolition of the sinecure office of Water Police Magistrate, than they ever fete during its prolonged and painful ex- istence.
