PENRITH. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 September 1845
PENRITH. f Afiec having listened for some rtime to the pro '«editigs of this hench, we were surprised to And sit the party who cross-questions witnesses, makes 'smnge comments upon the evidence adduced, and Merni to perform with inimitable pomposity the 'apposed duties of the magistracy, was no other, (ind, as "Mickey Free" would say, "no less") than the Clerk of the Court, nt a salary of £100 per leam. During our visit, two Magistrates were IN ¡TUH.NO> behind a large cedar screen, but as per- iled; indifferent to the complaint of some woman »lo vas under the piercing scrutiny of tho active tia of all wosk, as his Majesty Louis Fhillippe yoald willingly be to tho remonstrances of the ?ingy jade at Tahiti, dignified by the tillo of jileen.
BELL'S LIFE IN SYDNEY. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1845. NORTHUMBERLAND BOROUGHS. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 September 1845
BELL'S LIFE IN SYDNEY. SATUBDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1845. NORTHUMBERLAND BOROUGHS. PROBABLY owing to his former defeat, A. W. Scott, Esq., of Newcastle, has rejected the unanimous invitation of this consti- tuency to stand for the ensuing election. Mr. R. Fitzgerald, of Windsor, also, has been solicited by the Maitlanders' to come forward, but he likewise has declined. Captain Ogilvie, R. N., of Merton j is still in the field, and his friends ;are rather sanguine of success. There are faults, however; found with his notions of hos- pitality, which war more seriously against his interests.than domestic matters usually do. Mr¿'Patrick Grant, the veryanthe thesis of the last named gentleman, has met with a warm reception both in Mait- land and Newcastle, and is consequently confident of Legislative Honors. Captain Wright, of Parramatta, has been addressed on the subject of allowing himself tobe nominated by the Coal River voters, but we are not yet acquainted with his reply-j while, to compl...
DESECRATION OF THE DEAD. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 September 1845
; DESECRATION OF THE DEAD; IN, the present day of hypocritical cant and pharasatcal humbug, we are surprised "that "oiir rulers should be so besotted-so blind to the policy, bf their order as to suffer even their besetting sin, avarice j to prompt rihenij to. sp' monstrous ari outrage on their own sanctimonious principles, as the public avowal of the'intention to "rake, up the aslies of thie dead,"1 reposing in the in the old Burial Ground, in George-ótfeet, and "scatter them to the four winds of Heaven," implied by a bill proposed by our Governor for that/ purpose, bri ' the naked arid unadorned plea of expediency. Gracious Heaven! is it' possiblej that, in the nineteenth century, when the universal diffusion of human intelligence and know- ledge is declared to be the ultima thule bf sublimáry blessedness, in the promotion of which her most Christian Majesty j Queen Victoria, and all the lords, temporal and spiritual, of her Imperial Parliament pro- fess to combine, that her Majest...

CAMPBELLTOWN RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 September 1845
CAMPBELLTOWN RACES. The extreme length of the proceedings at the above meeting- will prevent us from giving a full, true, and particular account until our next publication. The races went off well, although much satisfaction was created by the stewards having so direct an interest in the stakes. A species of clan- ship exists here which' is quite ridiculous, and exceedingly detrimental to the town. Partiality in handicapping, was suspected by many gentlemen who attended, and in the race between Benelong and Badger the very air was rent by the loud plaudits of of the assembled gentry.- It was so glaring that the Bathurst horse had been purposely over-weighted. The town was literally crammed by visitors, and beds not to be had at any price. The course presented a most enlivening appearance-carriages in four, tandems, curricles, and equestrian ad infinitum thronged upon the course. Amongst the elite were found Captain and Mrs. Apperly, Messrs. Raymonds'/Howe, Boyds', Holden, Chambers, ...

The Turf. HOMEBUSH. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 September 1845
? Ibo Turf '? HOMEBUSH. THE result of tue Five Dock Chase re- corded in our last publication had scarcely ceased to be a source of interesting confab amongst our sporting circles when we were calléd upon to witness a glorious struggle between the respective winners of the Harkaway and* Hurry Scurry Stakes. Something between a Steeple and a Hurdle Race, run over three miles of ground adorned by nine stiff-made fences, aver- aging 4 feet 6 inches. Nor can the racing archieves of our territory bear record to a match which was more evenly contested, from .end to end, or which was more of a nature to satisfy the losing speculator, that not only was every thing " on the square," as far as the running was concerned, but that the owner of either horse was fully justified in. believing that he could snatch the wreath from his opponent. Seldom has a private match created so much excitement, and rarely has even this deservedly popular Race Course pre- sented such a lively concourse of the actu...
THE CONQUERING GAME; OR, THE LAMENT OF AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 September 1845
THE CONQUERING GAME ; OR, THE LAMENT OF AUSTRALIA. Tho morn was bright with vernal smiles, the air was fresh and free. As if dame Nature had proel aim'd a general jubilee ; Aloft, around, tho insect tribes rejoiced with busy hum, And young birds carol'd "Come fair Spring, ethereal mildness come." No longer chill'd-by nipping frost, or blast from howling North, Tho violet and tho primrose pale were silly peeping forth; Thc sun in warm refulgence shone unclouded from ' above, Bousing again the sons of men to labour, lifo, and love. Old Father Thames in majesty flWd bravely on his way, While myriads of his wanton waves,were sparkling in tho ray ; " Ah !" ho exclaimed, as gracefully his billows dano'd along, " There's summitt in the wind to-day, or else tho old tm's wrong." Off Old Swain Stairs, at 8 o.m., a gallant Nymph was moor'd, Prepard to take a cargo prime of genuine trumps aboard ; Flowers of the Fancy, always prompt to crash each act unfair, And scorning calumny and Hes, to act...
NEWSPAPER EXPRESSES INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 September 1845
VSPAPER EXPRESSES INDIA. A correspondent of the Birmingham Journal gives the following details, which certainly exhibit an amount of spirit and enterprise unprecedented in the literary annals of the world :-TbaTimes, Chronicle, Post, Advertiser, and Herald were accus- tomed to run the overland express jointly for a considerable timé. As soon, how- ever, as the Herald passed in the hands of its present proprietor, Mr. C. Baldwin (son of the proprietor of the Standard), and came out as the avowed organ of the Government, the Times refused to permit it to be one of the firm, and consequently the Herald was thrown on its own indivi- dual means. Lately, too, the remaining three papers, finding that it was the Times that got all the credit for the exprès through- out the world, at home and abroad, with- drew from the coalition, and the conse- quence is, that they are a day after the (air, and might as well be evening papers, so far as this particular description of news is concerned. By t...
THE FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 September 1845
I THE FIGHT;. I * Round 1, After « little dodging, in which euch advanced and retreated, Samba let fly with his left, but was stopped. He had evidently made np his mind, however, for quick work, and again let go his left and right ; Bungnrde fought with him, and heavy left-handed counters were exchanged, and Sambo was floored; but whether from the force of Dungaree's blow, which reached his forehead, or the rebonnd from his own hit, which nailed Bunga- ree on the right cheek, or from a combination of both, or from a slip, for he was retreating at the moment, we could not distinctly decide. The fall, however, threw Bungaree high in the estimation of his friends, and 2, and even 3, to I were offered on him, but no takers. 2. On coming again to the scratch, we noticed a slight discoloration on the side of Bungaree's smeller, but there was no visible mark on Sambo, who un- masked his ivories, and came cheerfully to his work. Bungy whited for the attack, his head well covered, when Sambo...
ENGLISH RACING IN CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 September 1845
ENGLISH RACING IN CHINA. There is a happy tendency in. English- men to make themselves comfortable, wherever their lot be cast, which is fully shown by a letter from Golongsoo, China, a ¿perusal of which we have been favored ivith, and of which the following is an Sextract : The Races commenced on the J 6th, when nine horses started for the 1st Maiden, won by Mr. N.'s Fairy most gallantly. Much amusement was afforded by the Grimaldi tricks and sword combats of the men of the 4l3t Madras Native Infantry cum mullís allis, and the foot-race was won by a sailor of Her Majesty's brig Pelican. A sweepstake was ..won by Mr, C's Footpad, and the beaten race hy Mr. W.'s Ptarmigan, the whole forming a novel page in our sporting annals. . The weather in January was almost as cool at Amoy as in Europe-the thermometer at 42 degrees Fahrenheit at eleven o'clock p.m.-no sun shining at the time. At Chusan it was very cold, and a heavy fall of snow was expected, The island is much improved since we ...

Original »oetry. I * LAYS OF "THE COUNOIL. No. 2. . The Council were met in York-street Hall, And loudly for order the Mayor did bawl ; The Councillors were all merry and gay, As if each was allowed' a holiday ; And Mae*, he felt a half-Alderman pride, , As he counted the members he had on his side ; While they, with their winking, seem'd to say, " We'll have you for Mayor this very day." Crickey, what a mistake I «. We've been here long enough," Justice Snip be cried, ? And o'er to the Market-place'straight they hied, And to Allen he whispered, " Keep np your pluck You'll never get in if you're down on your luck Then away they ran, and each to a man Did laugh in his sleeve at his own secret plan, And Mac said to himself, " I've presentiment strong That summut-or-nother's a-going wrong. , Crickey, not a mistake !

Varieties. A TRUSTWCBTIIY SERVANT.-On Wednesday last a woman named Mary Jones, ALIAS Buttery, who was acting in the capacity of housekeeper to an old mon named Moses Jones, at Bondi, left the house nnder pretence of searching for an egg, and de- camped into Sydney, taking away with her property and money to the aniouut of £11 or £12 ; viz., £l in notes, a silver hunting watch, gold ring, six silver teaspoons, and two silk pocket handkerchiefs to carry the booty in.

OXAA POOAIDA. RURAL SPORTS.-ri,don't care one single straw about medical statistics, or about ,lbe assertions of writers on tlie different races of men, for my mind is made up on the point that the, inhabitants of the Britannic Isles are the hardiest, tho healthiest, the most powerful in mind and body, and the longest lived of all nations, and' there is but one. cause for it, viz., their general love'of rural sports; and athletic exercises.: From, their cradle (I om-, speaking of oar rural population, the sinews of our inviolate), they are taught to give themselves up to out-of-dobt amusements.... The grandi difference, between us and all other, civilized people is in no! one thing so marked, so widely distinct, so díame-, tricaUy opposed as in our respective- pastimes. I need not go the length of my nose to prove this.; This very newspaper, "this self same Bell's Life in London, proves it os clear os a tropical sun at ita meridian,' Look at the main features of that paper, circulat...
A GENIUS FOR THE BAR. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 September 1845
A GENIUS FOR THE BAR. " A ragged boy. about 12 years of age, with a physiognomy indicative of thatspecies of shrewdness, which living by one's wits generally produces, was brought into the office having just been detected in illegally appropriating the pocket handkerchief of the footman of Doctor Chalmers. " The footman said, he was walking down Compton-street, about half an hour back, when he was informed by a lady that the prisoner had put his hand into his pocket and was making off with his hand- kerchief. Prosecutor looked at the boy, and seeing that he was going leisurely along with a face of great unconcern,at first had his doubts on the subject, but on quick- ening his pace, the boy, who was wide awake as to the situation of matters, trusted to a swift pair pf bee's, and set off running. Finding prosecutor gained rapidly upon him, he endeavoured to get rid of. the evidence of his delinquency, by throwing the handkerchief into a public house. Prosecutor did not stop to re-poss...
