Original Poetry. ODE TO PICTON. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 20 September 1845
WI . IB I ll -J7-;-' ' '" ODE TO PICTON. Sweet Picton lovliest village of the plain, Where Health and Plenty, cheer the labouring swain, Where peace and sweet eontentmenfreign through- out. From Oliver's to Crispe's, or thereabout, I know as how, friend James, is always happy, And Oliver too, but mo6t so, when he's sappy, Oft as I sipped my claret, cracked my nuts, I've gazed with pride on Picton's whitewashed Huts, Thy brick-built houses and thy fine old jail Where birds go in, and then get out again, Thy modest chapel on yon grassy mound A Holy influence sheds on all around, Far from the City's diu and loud alarms I greet thy vineyards and thy fertile farms, Thy never failing creek and Larkin's mill, Thy wooden church and court house on the hill I contemplate them all, with sweet emotion, And Picton dear, I love you to devotion. The children too, Lord love them how they prattle, And stun your ears, with their outrageous rattle, In sunny weather how they skip and play About the bul...

HEADINGS FRO J! SHAKSPEABE. " I must comfort tile weaker vessel," as the man said [when he filled his tumbler from the stone bottle. " Master go on, I will follow thee," as the con-, siderate bailiff said to an unfortunate gent arrested ¡n a public street. " Farewell, thou latter spring," as the roon said when he lost sight of the kangaroo. " I never dealt better," as the gamester said when he turned up Jack, and thereby won his game. " I have pepper'd two of them," as the cook said whilst dressiug the mutton chops.

To the Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. SIR,-There is a private whisper going the' rounds of the village, with what foun- dation I cannot say, that the old gentle ' mah with a nosological defluxion, is about W taking his seaton our bench,as stipendiary Police Magistrate of the district. Should this take place, I would offer him, with the best, and most friendly intentions in the world, a few words of advice, which may be both pertinent to the matter, and to the thing ; and tend to prevent many un- pleasant occurrences, throughout his career, when once snugly seated. He is tolerably hearty at present, and with prudence, may hold together for a short time, on the Bench,' should he be so fortunate as" to attain that honor; I would therefore, in the first"place, advise him to lay down,"fo'r himself, a clear, fair, and just line of acting, that will afford justice to all, and db injury to none.' In the brief interim "that"remains to him, unoccupied, let him set about a code of local Poli...

To the Editor of Sell's Life in Sydney. Sm,-To my great astonishment I hear that at the last Criminal Sessions, at the New Court House, the Court-keeper not contented with charging for admission to the gallery to hear the triaJs, actually pro- vided refreshment for the jury and others in his own quarters, for which he, as a matter of course, also chat ged ; thus con- verting a building, erected at a heavy pub- lic expense for the administration of justice, into a tavern. / No doubt this, if not looked into by the authorities will again occur, and as 1, for one, detest any thing that savors of taking the bread from one, to fill the pockets of any other, I hope you will make the mat- ter public. Surely, such an act cannot be sanctioned by the Judges-and, even if it were, I apprehend that the police should first be applied to, and the place properly licensed-(what would the Big Wigs at home say to this?)-for the sale of refresh- ments, as in the case of other houses of a similar descri...
THE REPORTING OF THE DEBATES IN COUNCIL. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 20 September 1845
THE REPORTING OF THE DEBATES IN COUNCIL. The' attention of tho p util io lias at last been directed to the extremely unsatisfactory character of the reports ! (as they are styled) of the proceedings in the Legislative Council, as published in tile Sydney Morning Herald. Mr. Lowe brought tho matter formally before the Council on Fridry week, in the' shape of a motion for a committee to enquire aud report as to whether some improve- ment might not be effected in the debates, and certainly made as convincing an exposé of the glaring and blundering inaccuracy of those reports as could be wished for. It could not, of course, be expected that our huge contemporary would be so dcfhrent in sensitiveness as not to writhe under this well-merited castigation, or that he would allow it to pass without making some kind of an attempt no matter how "lame or impotent"-to setup's defence to it. Accordingly, ho rushes into print, iu his publication of Saturday last, in the spirit of the most gallant ...

PIGEON SHOOTING. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 20 September 1845
PIGEON SHOOTING. 7\J The Windsor folks are sans doute the most sporting set of men in the colony ; scarcely a week elapses without some dis- play either in the ring or the field, the pit or (as proved by our report last week), the mud. They, as a body, also are liberal and intelligent promoters of agriculture while to give evidence of a patriotic desire to improve the breed of cattle, we need but refer to the late proceedings of the Hawkes- bury Association. Is it then to be wondered at, that from it? enlivening soil have sprung a glorious progeny-a lengthened line of hardy and successful adventurers in the pig- skin and the prize ring, and from whom, if ever dread emergency should call, we might expect to see arise the Washingtons of Australia-but to our more immediate business. On Wednesday evening last a little extra bustle was perceptible in this town, and a great many of the right sort were iii attendance at the usual ground, to witness a match between two of our justly celebra...
HUMAN DOGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 20 September 1845
. HUMAN . DOGS. ; The " comical dog" is an animal poss- essing his amiable side, and this it is.:-his jokes may sometimes occas:on evil(to,him self but they never are. directed to work ill j to others. A comical dog is : neither, a i satirist nor a sneerer, he wilj never make you blush for a fault, nor, turn pale; at.the ridicule of a personal defect. No man was ever' christened a comical, dog upon the strength, of slipping the chair from his neighbour as he is preparing to seat himself nor for putting a detonating ball into a friends's cigar ; nor for filling a bed with cowage, shoeing a poor cat with walnut Bhells, nor for leaving you a trap to tumble over at the head of the stairs. Neither can a fool readily obtain the enviable distinc- tion. The French have a separate name for that description of joker, whom they call ^ farceur, and hi? proverbial incipidity differs toto colo from the raciness of a comical dog. In some respects a farceur resembles what in England is called an od...

To ike Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. SIR,-I read with infinite amusement in the Herald of Monday last, an article written in the genuine style of " My Grandmother," on the congenial subject o*f '* Cant" and '* Humbug," and addressed to Mr. Wentworth, the Member for Sydney. The writer of that " awfully grand" lucu- bration, after " bouncing" the hon. mem- ber for presuming to say that there was a good deal of " cant" and " humbug" afloat respecting Teetotalism, became sud- denly mesmerized into a fit of the sublimely pathetic, and indulged in such a rhapsody on the glorious benefits ofTemperance.that, I assure you, I felt so impressed with the beauty of. his sentiments, that I imme- diately summoned " my Tiger" to my presence and ordered him to purchase me that identical number of thc pa- per, which I purpose preserving as a remarkable instance of the " anti-cant" and " anti humbug" principle 1 By the way, Sir, would it not look well if the proprie- tors bf the Herald a little mor...

THE FIRST'EPISTLE TO THE SYDNEYITES. CHAPTER I. Telleth how a man of the tribe of Levey came to sojourn in the City called Sydney, and how he comported himself therein. YERSS-1.-Now it came to pass in those days that a man of the tribe of Levey, after having travelled in many far and distant lunds, 2- Did come to tarry for a season in tho city of thc south called Sydney 3- And after having tarried there for some days, he lifted up his eyes, and looked abroad upon the city, and upon the country places belonging there- unto 4.-And he saw that the city was fair to look upon, in the eyes of the sons and daughters of men 5-And then he communed with himself and with other men of the. Hebrew nation, who also tarried in the city G--And he said this city is very fair and de- lectable, but the youths in it are growing up in gross darkness of the mysteries and science of self defence. 7- Verily I will go to and open a" seminary for the youth of this city, to enlighten their darkness, and lo ! ...
