Country News. WINDSOR. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 13 September 1845
Coon try XTews. WINDSOB. It ia rumoured that Sparkes intends shortly paying a visit to this town, in order to give a few lessons in the art of self-defence. We sincerely hope it may be verified, there being many young aspirants in the district who bid fair to become' first-rate painters, with a little training from such a tradesman as Bill Sparkes. PENRITH. Ox DIT -It is rumoured, but wo cannot vouch for the matter, that Mr. Justice Lethbridge is about delivering a series of Lectures, on the " Efficacy of Divine Grace," in the extensive Granary, over the Stables of Mr. Village. We understand there will be a trilling admission ticket made to cover the ex- pense of the Granary. «

ON TRAINING THE RACE HORSE. " The wise for cure of exercise depend, God never made his work for man to mend." EXERCISE. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 13 September 1845
^'TRAINING THE RACE HORSE. UV COTHERSTONE. " The wise for cure of exercise depend, God never made his work forman to mend." EXERCISE. In selecting this quotation from Dryden, it is for the purpose of comparison, and not with a concurrence of the sentiment conveyed in the last line. The first sets forth a principle which cannot be too closely followed ; but the latter, if true, would overturn even one of the most infal- lible precepts which we read in scripture that man shall carn'his daily bread by the sweat of his brow. Many subjects which serve to prove the incorrectness of the assumption come under our observation daily, and, with others, that of preparing any animal for active and Ialorious exer- tions, claims our notice. If it were cor- rect, the labours of the agriculturist would be unnecessary ; they would not be com- pelled to earn their bread " by the sweat of their brow ;" we should simply be con- tent to subsist upon the wild fruits of the earth, and the life of man would...

CANDIDATES FOR CIVIC HONORS. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 13 September 1845
CANDIDATES FOR CIVIC HONORS. THE aspirants for Civic distinctions, who have both publicly announced themselves'in the field, by the newspapers of the day ; and who nave privately signified their in tions of coming forward, at the ensuing election of City Councillors on the 1st of November, are as numerous as their claims are various, on their respective constituents. Among the former are the following, whose names appeared in print yesterday morning:-Messrs. Gaunson, Stirling, Brown, Walker,Titterton, Little, Ryan, and Hyndes; among the latter, Messrs. Egan, Munroe, Duigan, Jenkins, May, Moffit and Hayes, whose zeal to serve their fellow ci- tizens appears only to be equalled by their discretion, in entering the lists thus early, in which a civic contest of no ordinary inter- est or importance is anticipated. With res- pect to the' individual merits of the respec- tive candidates, it would be invidious, as well as prématuré, to offer any further opinion-for doubtless they, one and a...
Varieties. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 13 September 1845
Varieties. A FAMILY OF DWARFS IV ROSSHIRE. Judging from the success of General Tom Thumb's visit toour shores,one may reasonably conclude that dwarfs are not quite so plentiful as strawberries, and yet at Kishorn of Apple- cross, there is a family -of that genus, each ol them being of less dimensions than, and as proportionale as Tom. The father of these pigmies (John Finlay) is a poor cotter of the ordinary or middle size,- and the mother is rather beyond it. The eldest son, Mastei Finlay, is upwards of 20 years of age, and stands two feet ten inches in height. The next is a girl, somewhat the junior of Finlay in years, and considerably less in stature, and the third, and last, is a boy, aged 15, a mers pigmy. It is ludicrous to see these little creatures sit around their dinner table ; but to observe them dance together, reminds one forcibly of the Celtic accounts of dancing elves, (the fairies of the Highlands), whose fantastic measures so oft beguiled the way- worn Highlander, a...
MRS. CAUDLE'S CURTAIN LECTURES. MR. CAUDLE HAVING COME HOME A LITTLE LATE, DECLARES 'THAT HENCEFORTH " HE WILL HAVE A KEY." [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 13 September 1845
MRS. CAUDLE'S CURTAIN LEC- TURES. MR. CAUDLE HAVING COME HOME A LITTLE LATE, DECLARES 'THAT HENCEFORTH " HE WILL HAVE A KEY." '.'Pon my word, Mr. Caudle, I think it a waste of time to come to bed at all now ! The cocks will be crowing in a minute. Keeping people up till past twelve. Oh yes! you're thought a man of very fine feelings out of doors, I dare say ! It's a pity you haven't a little feeling for those, belonging to you at home. A nice hour to keep people out of their beds I Why did I sit up then ? Because I choose to sit up -but that's my thanks. No, it's no use your talking. Caudle; I never wiglet the girl sit up for you, and there's an end. What do you say ? Why does she sit up with me, then ? . That's quite a difi'erent matter : you don't suppose I'm going to sit up alone, do you? What do you say? What's the use of two sitting np? That's my business. No, Caudle, its no such thing. I don't sit up because I may have the pleasure of talking about it ; and your an ungrateful,...

0£X.a. PODRIDÜ.. 'WISDOM.-Being invited to attend a funeral, he entered a large room, crowded with a number of guests, and a sumptuous cold collation. Ile whisper- ed to a friend, " they appear to be wiser than Solomon herc!"

AN OLD RIFLEMAN. Cocking. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 13 September 1845
AN OLD RIFLEMAN. I , Oocldngr. A match waa fought at the Boundary Stone, on the 8th inst, between Praeter and Cullen, for ¿£2 IOs, o-side; which after a singular and length- ened display on the part of Cullen's cock, was won by his'opponent Immediately after, another fight took place, between the birds of'Cullen and Puckeridge. ' This was a quick and pretty affair Cullen's cock braining the other without palaver or delay. The sports of the day terminated in a match between a cock of .Tommy the Tailor, aud" one of Procter's. The big'nn rushed upon his bird, and having destroyed his " understanding," ' had nb difficulty in cooking the remaining portion of his hash-though a better bird hos seldom been called upon, to show the difference between the dunghill and the thoroughbred. ?? CANINE.-On Monday last a match came off at the Waterloo Paddock, between Tommy the Tailors' .white dog, 3D§ lbs., and Sparkes' brindled dog, 31 lb'., for £5, which, after a hard contest of 22 minutes, was wo...
The Ring. FIGHT BETWEEN CRUMMY AND CLARK THE BUTCHER BOY, BOTH OF PARRAMATTA, FOR TWENTY POUNDS ASIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 13 September 1845
The Ring &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; FIGHT BETWEEN CRUMMY AND CLARK THE BUTCHER BOY, BOTH OF PARRAMATTA, FOR TWENTY POUNDS ASIDE. Tuesday last was fixed for the decision of the long pending match between Crummy and Clark the Butcher Boy, both candidates for the Championship of Par- ramatta. The fight came off about three miles from Parramatta ; an eligible piece of green sward, in every way suitable for the purpose was found, and the arena formed. Shortly after9 a.m., Crummy, accompanied by Dan Brien and the Stunner, reached the battle field and he threw up his caster in proud defiance. Some little time elapsed before Clark reached the chosen spot, un- der the pilotage of Long Charley and M'Quoid. No time was wasted, and the men having shook hands, they prepared fur action. APPEARANCE OF THE MEN. On stepping, a good opportunity was afforded of estimating the physical quali \ ties of the men, when it was easy to per i ceive that Crummy was, at least, a...

Tb one of the S. R. C., per favor of j " Bell's Life in Sydney. (Sm,-It was by mere accident, that I read ybuj* Challenge in Saturday's paper. You accuse me wrongfully in statmg that I have abused your club. I own that my monkey was up, after having, from the first intimation of a club being formed, done all I could in offering my humble ser- vices to forward it. Some two or three of you, can bear witness to my wish to be one of you ; and two of you can bear wit- ness to my shooting at a small Target, at 150 yards, with a neat little lifle, made entirely by Wm. Pattison, senior, of King street ; and that after all my exertions, you, and the rest of you, thought fit to black- ball me. And now you state that if I had offered my services, they would have been thankfully accepted. Give me but a polite invitation, and I will give you all a lecture (not a curtain one) that will make you blush in sending an " old Rifleman" a challenge to shoot at a school boy's distance of 100 yards:-and i...
CAMPBELLTOWN RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 13 September 1845
CAMPBELLTOWN RACES. IN our last publication we excused our- selves for the delay in publishing the pro- ceedings of this meeting owing to the ex- treme length of the report, but as we owe the publie generally, and our subscribers in particular, a duty which involves the ac- curacy of this journal, we are fain to con- fess that the procrastination which may have afforded grounds of complaint, arose in a great degree from other sources. The party at the head of our affairs doubted the possibility of the Racing Reporter's account, and consequently would not give : publicity to the apparently strange fables submitted to him until. enquiry placed at rest his wavering credence, and still unmi- tigated wonderment. The whole recital is a paradox, and such as we hope, for the honor of the country,, no periodical will ever have to record again. Had we been called to witness a race within the Gardens of the Vatican between the two great churches for supremacy, we may have anti- cipated the hal...
IRISH HOUNDS AND THE MEN WHO RIDE TO THEM. THE DHUHALLOWS. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 13 September 1845
IRISH HOUNDS AND THE MEN WHO RIDE TO THEM. BY VENATOR. THE DHUHALLOWS. Having been for many years in the habit of reading all the sporting works that emanate from the London press, the fact has often struck me as being strange, that I have never seen in any of them a de- tailed account of the stata of sport in the sister kingdom. That this has arisen not from lack of matter, or from the un- interesting nature of the subject, but from an apathetic indifference on the part of the Irish sportsmen, in not giving an account of themselves or their doings, is, I think,* indisputable; therefore, as one who.has enjoyed many a glorious run in that coun- try, I shall endeavour to rescue them from the oblivion in which they rest at present, and show them forth as faithfully and truly as I am able. . . That the Irish, taken as a nation, arc passionately addicted to hunting, any per- son who has seen the peasant take his horse from the plough and follow the hounds as far as he could, will readily...
