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

Police Reports. I MONDAY.-The unfortunates amongst our com- munity mustered less this morning than on any similar, but what was lost in quantity was made up in quality; the gross number being fourteen, out of which the females churned nine as their com- pliment. Whatever excuse there may be for a poor weakly woman getting inebriated, there is none-for the grosser sex. Tho different' charges were disp- pósed of in the usual manner, Sarah Perkîns being one exception, having come down the country about a fortnight back, and always being in such a hurry home that she could never reach the old toll-bar until she got under the surveillance of Mr. Keck, on two several occasions, this being about to be the third, although she was only out of the cells two hours when apprehended. The gallant Captain was proof to her contrition and blandishments, and sent her for forty-eight hours to a silent home, in order to prepare her mind for the discharge of her domestic duties, and without any stretch ...

The coarse of .Epsom races, on the Derby day, displays thousands of well-dressed persons, with plenty of dash, and here and there sprinkled willi some fashionable folks ; and is, in reality, a most beautiful and in- teresting sight ; but on Ascot Heath the splendour of the scene is unrivalled ; and the truth is verified to the echo that ap- plauds again, that the kings name is a tower of strength. AseoY may be deemed the rallying-point for all the nobility and gentry for miles round Windsor, to pay homage to their beloved monarch. It is also at Ascot iliat dukes, duchesses, mar- quises, earjs, &c, are to bc mel with in numbers, promenading up and down the course, as much at their ease as if walking ona private lawn.

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

THE RING. AccouniNO to previously concerted plans, llie friends of Bill Davis and Uungarrabbee Jack met on Tuesday evening last, at tho Fives Court, to adjust preliminaries for the forthcoming fight. The muster of the Fan- cy was not very strong, still thc arrange- ments of the evening were satisfactory and the articles were duly signed. The battle will take place on Tuesday the 29th of De- cember next, and the amount to bc con- tested for it is supposât! will exceed £75. The t,ernis of thc ri-iii are comprised in thc usual form, according to the new rules of the P.R. viz.-a 24-fcet roped ling, half minute time, &c. &c. catch weights. The odds arc consequently somewhat in favor of Davis, who it is supposed will exceed his antagonist by at least half a stone. As the fight will come oft' in one of the secluded nooks of our harbour, it is to be hoped that thc nobs commissioners of ti.e milling department will exercise their usual vigour and discrimination so as lo preve...
