To Correspondents [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 October 1845
To Correapond«ata j PHELIM--Asks «s to describe the requisite condv tions of that anomalous character, a " gentleman jockey." Our correspondent has imposed no light task upon us. The subject has frequently occu- pied the attention of the sporting writers in the Mother Country, and to demonstrate the labyrin- thine maze in which this matter is still enveloped, we quote a few remarks of " Castor" in the Sportsman of April.-'* Gentlemen jockeys may, I think,be divided into three classes. In the firs't, ne have have members of the Upper and Lower Houses, with other right honourable members of Crockford's, Brookes's, Boodle's, and such high places of rendezvous; In tho second, are the country gentlemen, officers in the army or navy, members of. a fox hunting or racing clnb, or, more frequently, of some local one in the vicinity of tlie course on which they exhibit ; last of all comes the gentleman jookey, whom we find figuringiin races with this little addendum to their rules, " gentleme...

BELL'S LIFE IN SYDNEY. SATURDAY, OCTOBER ll,. 184.5. REPORTING AGAIN. 1 nv. Sydney Herald of Friday, in com- menting upon Dr. BJaud's observation as to the incorrectness of their reporting, directly and unequivocally calls the honorable re- presentative for the city a liar-without 'waiting to argue upon the glaring effrontery of such a slur-more especially foul as ema- nating from such a dunghill, we ask, if personal animadversions of this nature upon members of the House do' not constitute a breach of privilege ? The mighty Tubsters, keeping a vigilant watch over their so-called reporters ! ! feign a share oit insulted dignity .in'having motives so gross atttibuted to them, wltilë without hesitation, or the shadow of* courtesyj they wantonly impute a subversion of principle to Dr. Bland, and, after a great deal of bounce-after the toad and toady of the crew has had a few grains of snuff (Ralpho's vnix turei'the very antithesis to Prince's, inasmuch as it stinks), put upon his back,...
BATHURST. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 October 1845
'BATHURST. Various endeavours have been jnade from;, .time'to tùri.ë.!'ih\order to render more se-' "cure tlïe possession and enjoyment of life and property. For this purpose Bills have been introduced in the Legislature, which partake of no party spirit, being alike de-, sirable to the popular and the government side'; but in the practicalàdvancementol'this! acknowledged desideratum little good has ? been effected.: In the very centre, of our city the fall of houses at intervals startles the timid pedestrian, and robs the specu- lator of confidence.

FIST AND KNIFE. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 October 1845
FIST AND KNIFE. ;| WE have a recollection of an idea which Í possessed us in the days when we used "to : creep like snails unwillingly to school" that in this Antipodean Colony the people liad a fashion, peculiar tb themselves, of stand- ing on their heads/and that every tiling that was, or any thing that might be done in New South Wales was the exact oppo- site of our Father-land. We were strongly reminded of these, our early impressions the other day (and wondered at the same time at their partial correctness) by contrasting the addresses and effusions of Lord John Manners alias " Young England," and Benjamin D' Israeli with an article that appeared in the' Australian of 2nd October, relative to a recnet Fete at " White Conduit House, (Doddery's) last Monday week, in which the nous AUSTRALIAN unsparingly condemns all récréations that may, haye a tendency to afford amusement to the -ígreat unwashed. While Young England and. D'' Israeli are holding up to veneration, and more particu...
PETERSHAM. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 October 1845
PETERSHAM. TITE approaching meeting at this favorite place of amusement, is creating a degree of interest amongst "the middling classes" quite unprecedented, and which we hail as a favorable omen of the day's fun. The very mention of the word Homebush, is so ! associated with the crack racing- of the colony, that the aspiring Turfite is afraid to encounter the expenses and uncertainty of a contest theie, unless he be fortunate enough to have both Blood in the stable, and cash in the bank, whereas the mode- ration, both in the class of horses brought out at Petersham, and in the required dis- bursements prior to contesting the honors of the day, enables the thrifty tradesman, or" the comfortable mechanic, to put his nag of all work into the rack and dub himself a gentleman sportsman. The first hurdle race is open to all un- trained hacks, and the dodges of some of the wido's are quite amusing, as we see them daily sneaking out with their cattle mounted by professed jockies, for the s...
THE RACE. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 October 1845
THE IÎACE. ? Precisely at a quarter before three, the signal was given, and all got off well, Hope taking the lead at a moderate pace, at- tended by Lancashire Witch on one side and by Lady Wildair on the other. Caro- line and Miss Sarah following them, Re- fraction next, with Glee, Fickle, Wild Rose, Longitude, and Sir G. Monck's filly in excellent places behind them. No im- provement took place in the speed, nor any alteration in the front was observable until they reached the turn, where Caro//ne and Lancashire Witch gave way. The pace then mended, and Miss Sarah took her ground next Hope, with whom she kept company on the road, where they changed positions, and Miss Sarah ran with her neck in advance half way up the distance. Refraction here went up and took the lead, Hope following her, and Miss Sarah and Lady Wildair lying up, and Glee about a length behind. The only change in .this order was, that Refraction increased her head every stride and won easy by two lengths, Hope be...
LEGISLATIVE PROCEEDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 October 1845
LEGISLATIVE PROCEEDINGS. On Tuesday, after Mr. Patrick Grant had taken the oath, as Member for the Nor- thumberland Boroughs, the important ques- tion of Immigration was brought before the Council by Dr. Nicholson, in a speech of considerable, power and ability. The honorable member in introducing the sub- ject, dwelt at great length upon the para- mount importance and necessity of having, in a colony like this, a steady and regular supply of labour and population-and upon the disadvantages, the ruin, to its interests, that must accrue from a defi- ciency thereof. In New South Wales the demand for labour at present was very great-and must continue in proportion to the great increase of the flocks and herds of the colony. The fact that wages were on the increase, from the insufficiency of labour, proved the absolute necessity of immigration, and unless the increase in the flocks and herds were met by a.corres- ponding increase of population, the wages of shepherds would rise from £35...
THE DERBY DAY, MAY 28, 1845. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 October 1845
THE DERBY DAY,, . MAY 28, 1845. , . This morning the weather was anything but favourable to a rural excursion. The Tain fell most provokingly, and the heart of many a fair damsel beat with mortification . and well-founded apprehension of her beauty and her finery being veiled from general admiration. Nevertheless, the de- partures from the metropolis were extremely numerous, and the roads leading towards Epsom, in all directions, prapented an ex f traordinary scene of excitement, while the crush at the South Western and Croydon Railways proved that the spirit in favor of this annual festival was unabated, We cannot say that the equipages displayed many features of a fashionable character, but what was wanting in quality was evi- dently made up in quantity, and the fre- quent stoppages at the turnpike gates * Itis,perhnps,necesBory to apprise some readers, . that this itinerant member of the " gentle race," or ,i «' good people" (as they are scrupulously and even reverently termed by...

SCANDALOUS CONDUCT OF AN OFFICER.— IMPUNITY OF ARISTOCRATIC PROFLIGACY. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 October 1845
SCANDALOUS CONDUCT OF AN OFFIQEIt. IMPUNITY OF ARISTOCRATIC PROFLIGACY. A cnso lins just occurred, which tends to reflect tho deepest disgrace upoit the authorities at the Horse Guards, and which proves how ready those in power always aro to sercon the aristocratic or wealthy de- linquent. Mr. Barker, of Drury Lane Theatre, un- derstood that a certain. Captain Sutton, of the 7th Hussars, had publicly boasted of having had crinii nal connexion with Mrs. Barker. Tho indignant husband, placing implicit reliance upon tho con- stancy and fidelity of his wife,' determined to fathom tho sources of tho calumuy to their very bottom. He ascertained that Sir Wm. Hassell, nu oflicerin the above-mentioned regiment, had asserted that Cap tain Sutton hnd made the boast in his presence. Mr. Barker immediately wrote to Captain Si^ton, desiring an explanation of the circumstances. The '* gallant" captain replied to the effect, that he had never said anything derogatory to Mrs. Barker's honor, or disp...

OXiXA PODJUEDA. -o EtOrEMEXT EXTBAOBDINABY.-A COM which excited great interest, was brought beforo the nu£ gistrotes at Guildhall, Norwich.?.Charles Pedi- ment Wells, a groom, lately in the service of tho Hon. aud Rev.

JUNCTION RAUWAV, narweeN GLASGOW AND STD N ET.--The projectors of this railway have deter" miued on carrying out the recommendations of the Board of Trade in favour of the most direct lines ; and on taking a terrestrial globe-such as those used at schools-it will be found that au iron rod stuck into it at Glasgow and driven completely through, will come out at Sydney. It ix, therefore, obvious that the most direct road to the antipodes would be a straight tunnel carried through the centre of the world direct-forming a great trunk line, from which branches might be carried to all the mines in «very purt of the earth, so that gold could be brought from Golconda to Glasgow, and thence by railway to the London market.

Country XTowa. WINDSOR. On Tuesday, tho 30th ultimo, the remains of the late G. T. Wyatt, Esq., Clerk to the Hench, and son-in-law of, our late highly respected P. M., Mr. North, were attended to their final -resting place, St. Mathew's Cemetery, by about 12 or 1-Í gentle- men. Wo wore indeed, extremely sorry to see so scanty un attendance, knowing as we do, that there is not a respectable inhabitant of the Town or Dis- trict but would travel miles to pay respect to the remains of the most distant relative of this worthy gentleman, for.whom they do, and ever will, enter- tain the highest respect and esteem. Wo were, also, surprised to see amongst this small number, two or three of tho would-be aristocrats of the District, his most bitter und avowed enemies, who have becu for the last few mouths endeavouring to oust this unfortunate young gentleman, not only from his peaceful domicile, th« Government cottage, but also from his situation, in pretence of his not being able to do tho du...
