Original Correspondence. SYDNEY RIFLE CLUB. To the Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 September 1845
Original Correspondence. .-o SYDNEY RIFLE CLUB. To the Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. DEAR SIR,-In some of the first numbers of BELL'S, LIFE IN SYDNEY, a person signing himself " An Old Rifleman," was very facetious at the expense of the Sydney Rifle Club ; rediçuling them for their man- ner of firing, the short distance they fired at, and their wretched shooting-contrast- ing, at the same time, what he had seen done by the Rifle Brigade, and what he himself bad done, and could do. Now, Sir, if the Sidney .Rifle Club had been bringing themselves prominently forward before the public, or boasting of their ex- cellence as Riflemen, an " Old Rifleman" might have been excused for writing what he did. But, Sir, for myself, and the* rest of tlie Club, I can confidently assert, there never was a more modest set of men in the world than the members of the said body. If an old Rifleman, instead of abusing us, had given lessons in the noble science of Rifle Shooting, the S. R. C. would have...

Country News.- | PENRITH AND HAWKESBURY AGRICULTD- 1 BAL SOCIETY'S SHOW OP CATTLE, Sx" J &c, &c, AT CLABENDON, THIS DAY. :M It is extremely gratifying to us to observe .. the preparations that have been making during the week to give eclat to the pro- *? j ceedings of the great cattle show and &lt; ploughing matches,which take place to-day j at an early hour. A numerous assemblage ; of the beauty and fashion of this and the surrounding districts is expected to grace the exhibition with their presence, thereby filling up the measure of man's enjoyment. We have seen one of the Society's silver medals, and consider the workmanship very creditable to Mr. E. D. Cohen of Syd .ney. The device, (sketched by the hon. . secretary),is exceedingly unique and appro- priate. On one side is a cornucopia, froroV whence proceed rays, which fall on an arable field where the'plough is at work, . and underneath is a bee hive, with the words Speed the Plough, in au eliptic form. ...

Koeal Intelligence» I Brown v. Jenkins. * I ACTIO* or DAMACIBB von SEDUCTION.-We have been credibly informed that Mrs. Brown bas com- menced an action for a breaob of promise of Mar- riage, against Mr. Jenkins, otherwise, we should have favored her as we did him, by publishing her letters. MIXITART HionwATMEN.-Ltt9t night about 8 o'olock, police constable Smith reeeived information that a carter had been stopped at the junction on the Parramatta Boad by two soldiers of the 00th regiment, about two hours previously. Smith im- mediately followed - in pursuit, and succeeded in apprehending' them near Ireland's public house. One of them, named Blaer, was dressed in a smock frock, black hat, arid dark waistcoat; the other, named Sarsfield, was in his regimental shell jacket and cross-belt. They*-bolh, admitted the robbery, and surrendered without resistance ; but, up to this time (U.a.m., to-day), the man who hos been robbed has not been found.

Police Report. MILITARY DUELLING AND CIVIL NOSBPULLIKO. -Mr. John Willis, a valetudinarian Lothario, whose age and* infirmities should have proved a better safeguard against the fascinations of the frail sisterhood, was brought before Colonel Shadforth and Captain Innes, the sitting magistrates at the I police office, by warrant, on Thnrsday last, charged on the information of Ensign Mens, of the 00th Regiment, with pulling his nose in the slips of the Victoria Theatre, on the night of Thursdoy, the 28th of August. Mr. Bogers appeared for the complainant, and Mr. Dillon for the defence. Mr. Bobert Mens, ensign of Her Majesty's 09th Regiment deposed that-on the night in question, he took hold of the hand of a girl, with whom the defendant was conversing, saying, "how do you do, old girl ?" That the defendant asked him how dare he speak to a female when another was speaking to her ? He (complainant) replied that he had seen her before, and had as good a right to speak to her as him ; ...
CROWN NOMINEES AND ELECTED MEMBERS OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 September 1845
CROWN NOMINEES AND ELECTED MEMBERS OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL;, THE meaning of the word ratting is, in' the cant1 of Parliamentary phraseology (for all trades and professions, however learned, have their cant technicalities) is turning one's coat, or changing sides, when in- terest or caprice dictates. The first in- stance of ratting we have witnessed in our ^ ' Colonial Legislature, was that of Mr. Lowe from the ministerial to that of the popular side. Such are honorable changes, pro- duced by virtuous and independent prin- ciples, irrespective of self-interest, emolu- ment or favor from" " the powers that be," and commensurately has this honorable gentleman been repaid by thc confidence and approbation of all good men, which on the other side, he never could hav&lt; obtained or deserved, except by the sacri fice of every moral feeling and religioui obligation Mr. Lowe now stands one o thc foremost in the ranks of the oppositioi QB an independent elected membe.'. wherea; be...
ROUGE ET NOIR; SAMBO SUTTON v. BUNGAREE. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 September 1845
7^ ROUGE ET NOIR ; V SAMBO SUTTON v. BUNG-AB /".I " I was floor'd by yon once, I confess with pain, But that is no reason you'll do so again; On men like yourself I Trill ne'er turn roy back, For a white feather shouldn't belong to a black. " Then como to tho scratch with n spirit untam'd, And go it your hardost, my furrcner fani'd ; And laurels to him who provés most of a glutten, Bungaree, the Australian, or black Sambo Sutton. " And whichever may win, may the contest be fair And not prove a base Beuben Martin affair; Bight and left I'll turn out, with precision and vigour, And I guess you won't get much tho best of the nigger." So wrote Sambo Sutton in his poetical epistle to> Bungaree (which appeared in this paper) on Sunday last, and the issue of the fight has shown that "the Black Prince" formed a tolerably accurate esti- mate of the struggle in which he was about to be engaged. Our readers are aware that this match was made so far back as the 17th of November last, with a ...
NATIONAL SPORTS. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 September 1845
NATIONAL SPORTS. The implied course of the Government in reference to betting on horse-races'could not have been made known'at a^more con-' venient season. " Book-máking," " bet ting-around," " P. P. betting," and all and singular such devices are to have their swing-ample scope and run enough ; and " let every man take care of himself," as a gallant member of Tattersalls said to the committee. Just such counsel was given by the donkey to the chickens when he danced among the hencoops. The gallant; captain is in a condition to weather the pirates, but we should be glad to know - how is our public to protect itself ? Are; any precautions taken that the subscribers to Tattersalls (a society formed- for the especial purpose of betting, and one which gives the bias to the investment of vast ventures on the turf),-shall be parties of substantial respectability-of mbne y as well as manners ?-the two items whi ch now- : a-days constitute the man, and -without; both of which he is -.".but h...

THE " " ASCOT, DONCASTER, "AND ^GOOD- WOOD CTJPS." ' ". ,' " . Within these few years a newhranch in, tho. fine arts, at least a branch new. in tho history of English art, .has been cultivated with great success in this country; we allude to those very beautiful groups of hutnan figures and horses which latterly haye superseded, in many places^the old fashioned silver or gold cups which,used to ho.the prizes awarded at racecourses to the owners .of the winning horses, and which, exclusively of their.actual value, esti- mated by~ their .weight, had little to recommend them. .A better taste now prevails.omd noblemen and gentlemen obtain, if they be successful candi- dates on, tho course, souvihipg that is ornamental to their houses, and a proof of their patronage, not merely-of racehorses sud jockeys, but of their appreciation of good artists and the fine arts. The prize-the gift of His Majesty the Emperor of Russia,-whioh will be run for this year at Ascot, illustrates this improveme...

To the Editor of Bell's Life in Sudney. SIR,-As the derivation of many word and phrases in common language .is neath lost, and in many instances unknown, per haps it may prove acceptible to the curious among your readers to remedy this defect and to those who are pursuing the etymo- logical studies by supplying such a hiatus as will necessarily occur in many words, this, the first of my series of derivations will no doubt prove a boon. No. 1. COCKNEY.-Applied to one born within the sonni of Bow Bells, that is, within tho City of London -which terin come first (according to Minshew), out of this tale. A Citizen's son riding with hit father out of Loudon into tho country, and being utterly ignorant how corn grew, or cattle in creased, asked when he heard a horse neigh, what he did;-the father answered, the horse did neigh. Biding further, the sou heard a cod crow, and said, doth the cock neigh too ? hence by way of jeer, he was called a Cockneigh. A Cockucigh, according to some, is a ...

BELL'S LIFE IN SYDNEY. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 1845. THE candidates for the ensuing Mayoralty already it is reported muster three, since Alderman Wilshire has either commenced a canvass, or " rumour with her hundred tongues" is at fault. As far however as we can at present divine the race will be be- tween Messrs. Macdermott and Broughton, and the betting is slightly in favour of the latter. So let us dive below the surface. Alderman Macdermott has, in one way or another, been sb "long before us that his character as a public man is pretty well known. Restless and repining he has passed the last few years in one continued struggle after political elevation. Nor can we, in reviewing his career but confess, that to the colony this fretful activity has been bene- ficial. As one of the most zealous promoters of the scheme which set on fool the sudden changes in our local legislature, he has with his coadjutors entitled himself to the grate- ful consideration of our posterity ; while amo...

Ho refused to offer any explanation, or give'his"hame-and was brought before the Mayor on the following morning, when ho said his name was John Feirlant. Ile was remanded to the following day, for further examination. IMPUDENT THEFT.-On Tuesday afternoon, a prisoner of' the Crown ran into tho shop of Mr. Simpson, Grocer, of Cumberland-street, and snatched a shilling off the counter, with which he made off. Mr. Simpson laid hold of him, but, in the agitation of thc moment, suffered him to escape. He states) however, that he can identify him.

Original Correspondence. -o To the Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. SIR,--I consider there is no more whole- some measure than the keeping Police af- fairs, in general, before the public. Besides the acknowledged principle, there is a manifest check on the administration of the laws, and the authotities, which is highly desirable, and works abundance of good, against injustice, and wilfulness. There lived in this neighbourhood, in the lower pact of the district, for many years, (indeed their name is coeval with the settle- ment), a family of the name of Kennedy, which, at this present time, is ramifîcated into a hundred different parties and kinsfolk. Theyareof Scotch extraction, and naturally litigious, hence their repeated appearance before the magistrates, in a variety of posi- tions, but latterly, their visits to the police office have been Qfew and far between" . though angel-less, I should say. However, to my story. The general of this squod, the poor devil Kennedy, has reduce...
