Police Reports. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 October 1845

Police Report     -o A VINDICTIVE PROSECUTOR.–A carter, named. George Cartwright, (a right kind of a carter by name and nature, as the sequel will show) was charged by his employer, George White, of Newtown, before Mr. Windeyer, on Monday morning, with stealing a piece of stick about 18 inches long, which he valued at the extravagant price of sixpence ! The defend- ant, it appeared, was employed to cart wood from Wardell's brush into Sydney, and, having overloaded his cart by the prosecutor's desire, the piece of stick in question fell from the load repeatedly, and the last time it fell, seeing he could not secure it, he threw it into the door of a woman, named Fawcet, who was gravely examined as to the fact by the prosecutor, who displayed the most vindictive pertinacity in conducting the charge against Cart- wright. The bench, however, could not be per- suaded to entertain it–and discharged the defend- ant. This decision was received with universal laught...

EXPORTATION OF GRAIN TO GREAT BRITAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 October 1845

EXPORTATION OF GRAIN TO GREAT BRITAIN. Notwithstanding tho petitions in favour of the importation of our Corn and Flour into the United Kingdom, which have been adopted, in Sydney, Maitland, and various other districts of the Hunter, I cannot yeilcl a blind acquiescence in a mensure, which appears to me to be calculated to operate mischievously, if not ruinously, to the future wel- fare.of this colony. Nor do I conceive the conven- tion of the so-called public meetings, at which so much frothy declamation has been expended by a few wealthy agriculturists, to bc, by any means, a fair or reasonable test of popular approbation of the measure. Without stopping to dispute the equality of our rights or privileges with those of Cunada or any other of the British dependencies, I will simply address myself to tho policy of availing ourselves of them in this particular instance. In the first place, the soil and climate (from the irregularity of the seasons and periodical droughts,) of Austral...

Tho meeting was select -more so thia tho generality of such meetings and therefore not so numerous as others we havo attended. ConOdence,howover-tho conGdenceof an- ticipated success'-beamed upon the jolly counten- ances of the electors present-and the Secretary an announcing tho nuniber of pledges of support made to Mr. Stirlinjr, communicated the gratifying tidings in a tone and manner that left no doubt but that HE, ac all events, felt satisfied of the worthy candi- date's election. As is usual upon such occasions-' there was a very liberal out-pouring of specchifica tion-two orators having "held forth," .on the manifest merits of Mr. Stirling, and on the glaring demerits of his opponent, in a strain of eloquence ...

SYDNEY MAGISTRATES. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 October 1845

SYDNEY MAGISTRATES. Mn. WiÑDEYEB moved in the Legislative Council on Tuesday week for a return of the names of the gentlemen in the* commission of tho pence for the City of Sydney, with the number of cases in which they have respectively acted as magistrates at the Sydney Police office, since the first day of the present year. The object of tho honorable member's motion is to ascertain how many of those gentlemen hnve thought it worth their while to attend' to their magisterial duties, and how many of thom have grossly neglected doing so. Wo nro disposed to think that the balance will be found to lie on the side of the " neglectfuls" -that of all the Sydnoy magistrates, perhaps, but a very few of thom make a practice of attending the police office, even though their names happen to be on the roster for the days specified opposito them. Frequently have we known the public business to bo delayed for hours, or to be postponed to another day, in consequence of the non-attendance of tho ...

AN ECCLESIASTICAL SINECURE. To the Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 October 1845

AN ECCLESIASTICAL SINECURE. 'Td the Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. SIB,-In some of the private communications lately received from England, I nm glad to Uara that there is an under current steadily progressif towards the accomplishment of a mighty changeiu the Church establishment, and that ere long ie mar expect that the revulsion in the Scottish Kirk is only a prelude to a similar crisis in the sister kingdom. I trust that my countryman, Dr. Lang's prophecy some yetas ago, that such an event was at no distant period to be expected, may, ere long be fully fulfilled. The spirit of the tim'es, the thral- dom which ail unscriptural establishment has so .long subjucated its followers, and the unseemly divisions and contentions aniong their divines I with thc acknowledged venal rivalry for vncaut in ! cunibencies, have had their full share in influencing I the minds of the people, and these principles are ; steadily developing themselves in the canse of a nation's freedom from Church ...

MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 October 1845

I MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS. I WITJUN a month from the present data the citizens of Sydney will be called upon to return persons to represent them in the City Council, and there to exercise a vigi- lant guardianship over their interests It is, therefore, a matter of no mean or trifling consideration that they should delegate this important trust to men of some share of ability-to men possessed of some modicum of " brains"-and not to persons destitute of either. The only means whereby they can satisfy themselves on this head, is by instituting a searching and critical exam- ination into the pretensions and qualifica- tions of the several candidates tor their suffrages. We must confess we are not without the ' notion that many of those candidates are more influenced by private and selfish mo- tives, than by any desire for the public weal, pr any deep-felt interest in the con- cerns bf their fellow citizens. This paltry ambition has displayed itself heretofore but upon too many occasions-and...

SPORTING REVIEWER. The Ring. GALLANT MILL BETWEEN TWO OUTSIDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 October 1845

_ SPORTING REVIEWER. Tb o Sing-. -o GALLANT MILL BETWEEN TWO OUTSIDERS. A mill between Scotch Jack alias the Petersham Pet, and young- Harry Drake of Debroy for £5 aside, came off at Peter- sham, on Monday week. The match hav- ing been got up in a hurry on the previous evening, and tin's being the debut of both men in the Prize Ring, comparatively few of the fancy'were present. Notwith- standing it was a game fight, and its de- tails are worth recording. Neither of the men exceeded ten stone, but Scotchie ap- peared to have the advantage, if any. Drake is a well-built little fellow, in his 18th year; Scotchie in his 20th, not look- ing quite up to the mark, but evidently booked winning as a certainty. THE FIGHT. Round 1.-Both threw themselves into good atti- tudes ; Drake more steady; short sparring; Scotchie led off with his left, which Drake neatly stopped, a rally ; heavy peppering on both sides ; Scotchie mada his right piny on Drake's smeller, first blood drawn. 2. -Drake naile...

THE RACE. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 October 1845

THE RACE. Athalf-past two everyhorse was mounted, and in a few minutes, having taken their preliminary canters were " formed" for starting, lt was scarcely to be expected, however, that the largest field ever brought to the post could be got off at the first at- tempt ; accordingly three false starts oc- curred, and an additional delay of nearly twenty minutes arose from an accident that completely destroyed the chance of one of the leading favourities-Alarm. Having described this elsewhere, it ¡3 only neces- sary to add, that on his rejoining the other horses, they were once more marshelled into something like starting order, the flags were lowered, and at twenty minutes past three the race commenced. Idas, Wood Pigeon, and Salopian started in front nearly abreast, the crack having a slight lead on the upper side ; close up with them were Kedger, Fuzbos, Doleful j the Cobweb colt, and Pantas, and behind them Mentor, Pam, and Alarm, and in the van of the second ruck Old England, Wea...

A few minutes after seven o'clock Mr. Councillor Seale entered the Theatre, and, having ¿ten the Chair as President, addressed lis meeting in a speech not very remarka ijefor its meaning. Before he sat down, te exhibited a number of drawings of tilings which, he pronounced to be human stomachs, showing the effect of the differ (iit stages of intoxication on that useful ¿fan. ° It was evident, however, that Mr. Councillor Neale was ignorant as to whether '¿tv represented human stomachs or not. fa what he knew about them, they might hie represented a pigs ear neatly elon rjied and twisted at the extremities. liter the president sat down, a long and lugubrious looking gentleman, with a head of'great rotundity covered by a scalp of considerable toughness and thickness, de- tered himself of a quantity of " stuff'' ...

COOK WARD. 1 MB. HYNDES' COMMITTEE.-A Meeting of this gentleman's Committee took place on Wednesday, evening last, at Mr. Oliffe's public house, the Cockatoo, Surry Hills» which we made it our business to attend. The worthy Candidate himself did not honor the meeting with his presence, but \ a Mr. P.

WINDSOR. On Friday last all the crack shots from the j neighbourhood of Windsor might be seen wending ! their way accompanied by their friends to the borough of Richmond, distant from Windsor four miles, which pretty little village had been previously marked out for this day's amusement. The site selected for the shooting was on the green adjoining the residence of Mr. W. Town, and within a few hundred yards of tho Lamb Inn, kept by Mr. W. Onas, which, indeed, is as handsome a situation as nature could possibly paint, and to those of the company who had never before visited Eichraoud, must have been a rich treat, commanding a splendid view of the handsome village and surrounding neighbourhood, at the present moment in ,a - high and luxuriant state of cultivation, with the Blue Mountains of the Kurragong in the distance, inter- sected by small farms and neat cottages to the very summit. Precisely at ll a. m., the first matoh came off; a sweepstakes of one sovereign each and the birds...

After the Secretary had concluded his part of the businoss, Mr. Councillor Fisher, the Chairman, indulged ia a little oratorical recreation, explanatory of the pecu- liar fitness of Mr. Walker for civic honors, aud of the peculiar unfitness of Mr. Byan, the opposing candidate.
