To the Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. THE SAVINGS' BANK. "Oh! reform it ul together!" SHAKSPEAHE. D EAR BELL,-You must acknowledge that you are a bit of a humbug, indeed, I know you are, else you would not on every occasion, and, sometimes when there is no occasion, with your «' Lays on the Council," turn that intelligent and respectable body into ridicule, nay,' even cast reflections on some of the members' noses, let alone their trades and callings. Really, Bell! I did not think you capable of indulging in such personalities ! Do, pray, for delicacy's sake, have a little forbearance. But, not- withstanding this, from what I see in your " Life in Sydney," whenever a real hum- bug comes to your knowledge, you come forward, manfully and fearlessly, to expose it to thc public. I have, therefore, to re- quest that you will give room to a few ob- servations I wish to make on the "Savings' Bank," or, as ithas been facetiously termed the Shavings Bank! for, to tlie latter com- plexion, ...

To [?] Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 September 1845
To tke Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. SIR,-It is but fair to say that the Bat- tle of the Smoker, of which a copy is now forwarded to you, was offered to the Aus- tralian for insertion, but refused by the exquisitely refined taste of the Editor, as being vulgar, brutal, and only ft for the Cockpit of a Mun of War ! Poor man delving into quantities and qualities of the Australian beef and mutton fat, together with keeping swine, and metamorphosing their fat into lard, appears to be the acme of his exquisite taste. The substances of grease, are to him far more superlative than the shadows of the Bards of Greece Only think of the language of an old son of Neptune, commanding in an engagement, to be brought into tenor with that of the conversaziones of a drawing room-to please ears polite-and refined moral taste, as advocated by the poor Old Scribbler on beef and mutton fat, and pig's lard ! Why-the Editor must be mad to to think of such a thing-and the old fighting school, whether Bl...

To the Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. SIR,-Be good enough to inform me WATT legitimate means I can resort to for the recovery of stakes deposited in the hands of a self-styled sportsman, which he refuses to hand over to the winner of the wager? Yours, FIVE DOCKER. [The only process to recover under these circumstances will be by summons, in the usual way ; but our columns are always open for the exposure of any scoundrel who dares to violate the trust reposed in him, as a man of honor, and.a sportsman. -ED.] : ;;
BELL'S LIFE IN SYDNEY. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 1845. BRISBANE WARD. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 September 1845
BELL'S LIFE IN SYDNEY. SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 1845. _j*_:_ BRISBANE WARD. THE canvas for the above Ward is pro ' ceeding with unabated energy, and with the most cherished hopes of success on the part of both the candidates-Mr. John Little and Mr. John Stirling, The last named gentleman is almost without a doubt but that he will be returned by a " triumphant majority," and Mr. Little is equally sanguine on the subject. In the meantime, the friends-the admiring friends -of both parties, are busily and studiously devoted to the important business of can- vassing, speech-making, drinking, and smoking. On Tuesday evening last a meeting of the Electors interested in the return of Mr. Little as Civic Representa- tive of the Ward, took place at the Adel- phi Hotel, York-street, and certainly if the meeting could be considered to present anything like a safe criterion as to the probable result of the Election, Mr. Little's friends had every reason to console them sèlves, as they did, with t...
THE RACE COURSE. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 September 1845
THE RACE COURSE. UP to a very recent period, all animals found straying on the Race Course were impounded by the constabulary, but latterly they are allowed to range there ad libitum, with impunity-aud the consequence is that several'serious accidents have occurred to young children, by being kicked by vicious horses, within the last few weeks. One little boy, named Davis, a mere infant, received a ghastly wound in the forehead, that will disfigure him for life, by the horseplay of one of these animals ; and no later than Monday morning, another little child, named Reily, whose parents are small dealers in Market-street, narrowly escaped being killed by being chased by the identical horse that kicked the boy Davis. On the previous day (Sunday) we observed this vicious colt gambolling among a parcel of children who were playing on the green, one of whom he pursued and had nearly overtaken, when a woman had the presence of mind to rush forward, and rescue the child. A constable happen...
SPARKES AND DAVIS. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 September 1845
SPARKES AND DAVIS. According to «arrangements previously made, these men met in York-street, on Tuesday evening last,.to sign articles and make a deposit ^o fight for £50 aside, according to the new rules, &c, &c, &c. ; and as all minor matters, at issue have been settled, nothing could have interfered with these necessary preliminaries had not Davis met with an accident on the after part of the day, by which he either dislo- cated or sprained his ankle, and for the present, incapacitated himself for the active duties of training. This mishap is singu- larly mal a propos as far as Davis is con- cerned ; but, we have satisfied ourselves of the accuracy of his statement, by referring to Mr. Day, the District Surgeon, under whose care he has been placed. Many of Sparkes' friends seem sceptical of the match being made, but the incredulity is with- out proper foundation, as the next meeting of the principals or their backers will prove. -

SPORTING REVIEWER.^ The Turf. BERRIMA RACES. V These Races commenced on Tuesday last, when elie weather was exceedingly sultry, and the company neither very nu ; onerous nor select. We are sorry to say that the same sort of clanship which char- acterised the late Campbelltown Meeting, isas also in vogue here. ? However, we Lave no disposition to moralise on these matters.

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 September 1845
Ziooal Intelligence. ' MILITARY OUTRAGB.-On Wednesday night a serious outbreak between the military un il civilians took place on the rocks, the particulars of which, as furas we can learn,.are as follow:-A party of soldiers of different regiments were drinking nt Ford's public house, the " Napoleou Inn," at Miller's Point, about eight o'clock on that evening, and during the carousal several quart pots were missing, and they were accused of the theft. Aa altercation then ensued, which broke into a serious disturbance by one of the soldiers seizing a poker, aud striking a mau mimed Todd several blows on the head, which inflicted wounds of so serious a character, that Dr. M'Kellar, who was called in upon the occasion, has not yet pronounced him out bf danger. The soldiers now surjouuded by 80 or 00 civilians, armed themselves, and sallied forth in the direction of the " Black Dog" public-house, in Gloucester-street, smashing windows, pulling down fences, aud knocking down every person...
SECOND FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 September 1845
SECOND FIGHT. After the great event of the day had been disposed of Henry Agan alias M'Kis- sie, a sporting tartar, and Peter Brenan, -a carotty-headed brickmaker, entered the ropes, for ,a purse collected on the ground, as well as for the adjustment of some per- sonal squabbles, which have been long matters of dispute between them. Brenan had the advantage of about two stone in weight, while the schuider was re- ported to possess a degree of game, more than sufficient to counterbalance the extra dimensions of his opponent. Round 1.-Without waiting for any superfluous ceremony, the men came up in fighting attitude and rattled into one another, right and left, at. railroad pace, the arms of each man goiug like the piston of a steam engine ; no exhibition of science-no sparring-nothing but fighting, when, after having received and administered considerable puuish meat.fthe-cabbage was knocked down ; first.blood claimed for Bufus. ¿.-^íjo sooner were they at the scratch than at it fife...

LEGISLATIVE PROCEEDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 September 1845
LEGISLATIVE PROCEEDINGS. THE Legislative Council resumed its usual weekly sittings on Tuesday last. After the dispatch of some miscellaneous business, Mr. Murray presented a petition from the magistrates and residents of Queanbeyan, protesting against the impolicy and injustice of taxing tea and sugar, articles particularly essential to the comforts of the poor man, in order to make good the deficit caused by the contemplated reduction of the duty on spirits., On the motion of Dr. Nicholson, an address to His Excellency was adopted, praying for a return o'f the expense defrayed from the Colonial Treasury, of every mis- sion to the Aborigines within the colony, and of the Protectorate, from the 31st December, 1842, showing the expense of each mission, and the Protectorate, for each, year. 1 - . . s Leave was given to Mr. Robinson, to bring in a Bill to enable the trustees of the Savings' Bank of New South Wales and Port Phillip respectively, to lend money'to the Corporation of Melbou...
