JACKEY JACKEY. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 28 November 1846

JACKEY JACKEY. The "following address; from.Westwood, alias Jackey Jackey, to a Reverend Gen- tlemen formerly, or at the present attached to the Norfolk Island Establishment, has been given to us .for publication. The spelling of many of the words in the origi- nal is incorrect, a great portion of which we have rectified, but only in one or two instances have we thought it right to inter- fere with the style. The latter part of the tetter was evidently written under strong emotion. H. M.

HART, THE ASTROLOGER. I There lived in Hotihdsditch, about the year 1632, one Alexander Hart, who had been a soldier formerly-a comely old man of good aspect : he professed questionary astrology, and a little ol physic. ' His greatest skill was to elect young gentlemen fit times to ploy at dice, that they might win or get money. Lilly relates, that " lie went unto him for resolutions for three questions at several times, and he erred in every one.'" He says, that to speak so- berly of him, he was but a cheat,' as ap- peared suddenly after; fora rustical fellow of thc city, desitous of knowledge, con- tracted with Hart to assist for a confer- ence with, a spirit, and paid him £20 of £30 for the contract. At last, after many delays and no spirit appearing, nor money returned, the young man indicted him for a cheat at thc Old Bailey in London. Thc jury found the bifl, and at the hearing of the.cause this jest happened:-Some of the bench enquired what .Hart did ? " He sat like an alderm...

Varieties. Poverty is thc mother of hope. Let the beautiful .laughter accompany ns, anti we shall not behold tho beautiful mother.-Richter. When Benseredo was attending a drawing room nt tho Court of Louis XIV., he was asked by Ma dame what was thc difference between a Dryad and a Hamadryad? but not being so versed in classical mythology as in modern litcraturo, he was at a loss for a reply; so observing that on either side of Madame's chair were papilioning (to Anglicise a phrase of a modern Frenoli'iiovoiist) an Archbishop and a Bishop, he made answer, ' tho same differ- ence that prevails between Bishops and - Arch- bishops.' It was afterwards a standing jest at Ver Railles, that this or that bishop was aspiring to bo made a ''.Hamadryad."

.' ESC*»ACTS. . ATTACHMENT OF THE HORSE. In súbt^sston and attachment to man, the horse-is equalled only by the dog and -elephant.;, He, soon learns to distinguish -his master's voice,' arid to corrie at his call ; he rejoices in his presence, and seems rest- less and unhappy, during his absence { he joins with him willingly in any work, and . seems'susceptible. of emulation and rivalry ; and though frequently fierde and dangerous to strangers, yet lhere are few instances on: record of his being faithless to those with whom he «s domesticated . unless under the most inhuman and barbarous treatment. Colonel Smith relates the following af- fecting incident of attachment in a charger which belonged to the late General Sit Robert Gillespie :-When Sir Robert fell at the storming of Kalunga, his favourite black charger, bred at the Cape of Good Hope, and carried by him to India, was, at the stile of his effects, competed for by several officeis of his- division, and finally knocked down t...
