Varieties. ABSENCE OF MIND.-The Nashville Ob- server-informs us of the following as the most recent instance of absence of mind, which took place in the person of aa old lady, who, after stirring the fire with her knitting needle pro- ceeded to knit with the poker, and did net discover her {error till she commenced scratch- ing her headi with it. j AN APT ILLUSTRATION.-A person asking how it happened that many beautiful ladies took up with indifferent husbands after many fine offers, was" thus .'aptly answered by a mountain maiden. A young friend of ber's requested her to go into a cane-brake and get him the handsomest reed. She must get it once going through, without turning. She went, and coming out, brought him quile a mean reed. When he asked her if that was the handsomest she saw, ' Oh, no,' replied she, M saw many finer as I went along, but I kept on in hopes of one much be.ter, until I got nearly through, and then I was obliged to ? take up with any one I could find-and a cro...

PORT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 September 1845

PORT PHILLIP. Our file of Port Phillip papers came to hand yesterday, but contain little news of any interest, with the exception of the melancholy tidings of the wreck of the emigrant vessel Cataraqui (bound to Port 'Phillip), with the loss of 414 souls. The following are the particulars of this dis- tressing event :— The emigrant ship Cataraqui, Captain Charles W. Finlay, sailed from Liverpool on the 20th April, with a crew of 46 souls, including the Messrs. Carpenter, brothers, (medical men), the captain and mates, and 370 emigrants,consisting of married people and families, and many single people of both sexes. Of this large number only nine are saved, these are the mate, one emigrant, six able seamen, and one apprentice. The leading cause to this dire mishap was, a gale of wind that sprung up on the 15th of July, when off St Paul's, and from that time con- tinued without intermission until the 1st of August. The captain then conjectured that he was in lat. 39 ° 27', or thereabo...

THE TARIFF. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 September 1845

THE TARIFF. The topic of most engrossing interest, at tile present time, is the contemplated reduction in the duty on spirits, proposed by the new Tariff Bill under the consideration of the Legislative Council. Mr. Robert Cooper, sen., lias been examined before a committee of the whole house, upon the subject, and tho result of his experience, extending over a period of upwards of thirty years, has been confirmed by the calculations of the " first statistical writer of the day," in the Sydney Morning Herald of Monday last. ? It appears that a considerable and gradual re- duction in the duties paid on imported and licensed spirits has taken place withiu the last four years, and the only conceivable mode of accounting for it, is the progress of temperance .on the one bond, and the increase of illicit distillation and smuggling on the other. . ?- ???'?'¡i Í; I:: '- " ' That tho progress of temperance societies has been marked with beneficial results ho one will at tempt to deny, but th...

SPARRING BENEFIT. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 September 1845

SPARRING BENEFIT. /' On Monday evening last, the Joint benefit of Sparkes and Corduroy took place at the rooms in York-street, and was numerously attended, so -much so that if all persons present were bona fide contri- butors at the entrance box, tiiey must have netted a good round sum. The set ting-to partook more of the nature ofglove fighting than scientific display, and so far gave dissatisfaction. . In England, except among absolute rough uns, nothing of the kind is countenanced, and the sooner science is substituted for absolute hard blows the better for those most interested. The following was the order of the evening. Marshall v. Donovan. Hough v. Davis. Sparkes v. a Sailor. . Sparkes v. Corduroy. The sparring of the Sailor was much ad- mired, though Sparkes should have played light. Marshall and Donovan went to work like well-practised boxers, initiating the admirers of their art-though the thief, Time, is beginning to play tricks with old Dan-Marshall is a quick and adroit...

Police Reports. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 September 1845

Police Reports. CONSPIRACY.-OU Monday last, a case of nn ex- traordinary and novel nature was concluded before Mr. Windeyer, tho sitting Magistrate, in tbe cam miit.il of two privates of the OU th regiment, named M'Laughlin and Quigley, who were subsequently admitted to bail. The facts of the case appear to be, that a female who had preserved her virgiuiiy to the wrong side of thirty in service, where she had saved a con- siderable sum of money, fell in love with M'Laugh- lin, and promised her hand in marriage. Ile either app'ied. or pretended to apply to several clergymen of different religions denominations to have the solemn rites of matrimony performed ; but so many disappointments occurred, owing to the pre-engage ments of the Kev gentlemen, that, on a certaiu day.

NIMROD ON THE BOTTLE. (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 September 1845

NIMROD ON THE BOTTLE. . '.. ( Continued from our last.) . Butto return to the more modern practice of drinking healths at table. Can you fancy -can you picture to yourself the extent of ! the nuisance in such a family as my own, -I mean that in which I not only first tasted wine, but pap ? We consisted of father and mother, six sisters, one brother, (first-born; worse luck), and myself ; and after a certain age we all dined.together in the holidays. Now go on, fancying the cloth drawn, and each helped to a glass of wine. The signal for the start was generally from my father ; and,- if only- en famille, it was, ' Anne, my dear, your good health,' to my mother, and ' boys and girls, were clubbed, with a nod. But if strangers were , present, the ceremony was observed with all due solemnity. Now my worthy father stammered dreadfully, at words beginning with certain letters, of which M was one. . I would have given him fifty seconds, at the best of times, to haye got to the end of the wo...

To the Editor of' Bell's Life iii- Sydney \ THE ABORIGINES. . | . SIR,-There is nothing so essentially . necessary as the enactment of some stringent measure - to provide for the immediate --punishment- of .Aborigines charged with murder and other crimes ; T admit great difficulties exist in reducing to practice any plan for this purpose however well devised. As the law now stands, however, no abori- ginal can be put upon his trial unless lie has been made to understand the nature' of his offence, and certaiu relative duties necessary to bo known by one in his situa- tion. Attempts have been made in several instances, with a view to these preliminary instructions, but, except with the more civilized portion of them, these have in- variably proved unsuccessful. In the case of Koort Kellup (or some such name), the Aboriginal at Port Phillip, charged with murder at the Criminal Sittings there, from the impracticability of making him under- stand either the nature of his offence, or the...

ENVY,—A FABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 October 1845

ENVY,-A FABLE. I As on a summer noontide, round My garden glad I walk'd, And with the pretty plants and flowers, God's blooming children, talk'd. I spy'd in one rich-scented bed, Together sweetly set, J> A lily tail, a towering rose, A lowly violet. Each spread its glories oui, os if It wish'd to shine alone ; Yet all the uninvidious three In sweet agreement shone. I said unto the towering rose, Sweet Bose ! why seek'st thou not, Where thou may'st gather all thy praise, Some unpartaken spot? The Rose 'reply'd-I envy not What praise each sister shares j Albeit in mine own fame I joy, I glory too in their's. I said unto the Lily taB, O gentle Lily ! how Amid such gay competitors, So sweetly bloom canst thou.? The Lily said-I envy not Each blooming sister's praise ; The eye that looks on them with joy, Glads roe too with its gaze. I said unto the violet, Sweet leaf! how canst thou shine, In thy humility, mid flowers O'erflaunting thee so fine 1 - The meek and richly-spangled flower ...

THE DERBY STAKES AT EPSOM, 1845. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 October 1845

THE DERBY STAKESAT EPSOM, 1845. On the eve of the Derby another dis- graceful transaction was discovered, in proof of the rascalities to which certain persons connected with the betting circles will have recourse, in order to insure illicit gains. All that we can now say on this subject is, that William Day, the Jockey, son of the well-known "Honest John," and others, are said to have been concerned to " lay" against Old England, and to lame or poison him, so as to prevent his running. This horse is a Mulatto colt, the property of the celebrated Mr. Gully. He stood high in public estimation ; a position which his performances on the great day seemed fully to warrant. Gambling booths of every description have been banished the English Turf. For the Derby 31 horses started, the largest number ever brought to the Post. We regret being obliged to postpone for want of room, the particulars of this meeting, and merely subjoin a brief ex- tract. The DERBY STAKES of 50 sovs. ouch, li ft¡ fo...
