Varieties. ; OivriiOGKAriiY OF NAMES-An amusinj example of the obscurity of our commoi mode of spelling' was exhibited some year ago in a court of justice. A gentleman being in court whose name thc judge di« not recognise, was requested to spell hi name, which he ran off* very quickly in thi following manner:-"O, double T, I doubli U, E, double L, double U, double O, D.' '* O--double-if you please. Sir," said thi judge, " will you have the goodness to re peat it ?" Again the gentleman rattled of his name as before-" O, double T, I, doubli U, E, double L, double U, double O, D.' " Double, double, double," exclaimed th« judge, "we cannot make anything of it Pray have the goodness to give us one lette: at once." The gentleman repeated; tl» .riddle of a name, letter by letter, and ii produced the veritable name of " Ottiwel Wood." , NATIONALITY.-An Italian travelling ir America some years since, being in companj with a true son of New England, remarked with much enthusiasm in his foreig...

TOM CROSBIE'S TALE. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 October 1845

i TOM CROSBIE'S TALE, Well, then, you must know that, at five and-twenty, my aunt Jemima waa aa ro- mantic a young lady as ever sighed for love, or subscribed at a circulating library. Her teens, unfortunately had passed away without a single siege being laid to her heart, or, what is worse, without a single proposal being made for her hand '; and at length her ideas of a husband were dwind- ling down from coroneted noblemen to wealthy commoners, and from wealthy commoners to independent gentlemen, and from independent gentlemen, m short, to any description of respectable individual who might feel inclined to pop the question. Now, it was no want of charms on her part that had kept suitors at a distance, but she lived in a retired part of the country, where the gentlemen knew more of Berk- shire sows than books, and as Jemima was a regular blue, not one amongst them could summon up sufficient resolution to approach a lady who looked like Juno and talked like Minerva-the Minerva libr...

BELL'S LIFE IN SYDNEY. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 4, 1845. AGRICULTURAL MEETING AT MAITLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 October 1845

BELL'S LIFE IN SYDNEY. SATURDAY, OCTOBER i, 1H-15. AGRICULTURAL MEETING AT MAITLAND. ON Monday last, pursuant to notice, a Public Meeting- was held for the purpose of petitioning the Home Government on the subject of the Australian Corn Laws, the peculiar grievances of which must be known to our readers. Nor can we barely record the proceedings of this assembly-a sense of the importance-the vast and weighty importance of the subject demands from every journalist,-aye! from every citizen, from every colonist, a more pointed and determined display of our unanimous resolution, progressively, to solicit, appeal, demand, and enforce, if needs be, the paltry privileges denied us. We are the free-born sons of Australia, the proudly acknowledged descendants of Great Bri j tain, amidst the mazes of whose social in- tricacy can be traced genealogical repre- sentatives of the class described by Patrio- tic Poets as Great, Glorious, and Free," together with the canny scion pf illustrious Scotla...

NIMROD ON THE BOTTLE. (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 October 1845

NIMROD ON THE BOTTLE. ( Continued from our last.) I knew one, who, at the age of thirty ¿ had so much the appearance of having 'drunk up his beer,' that the corporation of Liverpool granted him an extravagant annuity for a sum of money he advanced them, and he lived to the age of ninety three ! He was a fine specimen of the old breed of country squires, of about £2,000 per annum ; on which I was for many years witness to his doing what cannot now be done on an income a third more than that. He had his coach, his hounds, and setting dogs, which he turned out in very excellent form, and netted a vast quantity of game to them; and he kept an excellent and hospitable house. But from the want of having come much id contact with the world, he had a few most rare vagaries. For example, if dinner was not announced exactly as the stable-clock struck two, he would take the bell-rope in his hand, and never cease pulling it till ¡twas announced. Ditto again at the supper-hour. But it would requ...

THE TARIFF. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 October 1845

THE TARIFF. We are rejoiced to perceive a conciliatory article in the semi-official organ of the Government-the Sydney Morning Herald of yesterday-professedly penned for the purpose of allaying the " excitement that prevails throughout the Colony, from a supposition that a duty will be placed on tea and sugar," and denying that any such duty would be imposed, especially on the article of sugar. Any one at all conversant with the subject, who will take the trouble to read our last article in juxta .'position with the article of yesterday's Herald, can- not fail to discover, that the latter was in- tended not only to allay popular excitement, but to meet the objections urged by us against a policy so mischievous as that which was undoubtedly contemplated by Mr. Lamb, and the other Crown Nominees in Council, and would, as certainly have been carried into effect, had we not exposed the scheme in time to defeat its completion. The Herald follows us in our line of ar- gument so closely an...

PGRT PHILLIP. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 October 1845

PGRT PHILLIP. IP ever a district was rendered unfortunate, and disgraced, by the acts of a portion of its représenta- tives, as well us by the general character of its public prpss, fort Phillip is that unfortunate and disgraced district. Every attentive euquirer must have remarked-indeed, it is next to an impossi- bility that the fact could have escaped the notice of even the most inattentive ohserver-that ever since the Legislative Council was established on its present basis, a number of gentlemen have " wdued the sweet voices" of the Port I'hillipinns, as candi- dates for their suffrages, not (we feel convinced) from any patriotic desire to promote tho welfare or advance the interests cf the district, but from the j petty and contemptible vanity of having themselves j for a short period rescued from obscurity, by obtain- ing a seat in thc Legislative Assembly, and the magic letters, M.C., appended to their names. Of nil the gentlemen who have been elected to represent that unfor...

Police Reports. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 4 October 1845

Police Reports.     A SCENE IN THE MILITARY BARRACKS, -On Thursday morning, a private of the 99th Regiment, servant to Mr. Barker, named Harmer, appeared before Mr. Windeyer and Colonel Shadforth, charged by Miss Bettisworth, a very interesting looking young female of the Cyprean group, with assaulting her in his master's quarters, on the evening of Friday last. It appeared from the evidence of the witnesses that, about 7 o'clock on the evening of Friday, the complainant and another young female named Mary Ann Fletcher, were left by Mr. Barker in his quarters in barracks, when he went to attend mess, leaving a private preliminary injunction with the defendant, to clear the room after he had cleaned it up. Shortly after Mr. Barker's quitting the room, an altercation ensued between the com- plainant and Miss Fletcher about returning a watch to Mr. Barker, that Fletcher had received from him on the previous night; blows ensued, and Harmer   in obe...
