BELL'S LIFE IN SYDNEY. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1845. The Turf. PETERSHAM RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 18 October 1845
^BELL'S LIFE IN SYDNEY. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 18, 1845. The Turf. -o PETERSHAM RACES. Undismayed by thc threatening appearance of tho weather, and the already wretched condition of the roads, a good muster of our undaunted citizens had congregated on Thursday, last at this favourite offshoot of Wardell's bush. Happily, indeed, has Nature, that alma parens rerum, suited her'beneficial dispensations, not only to our wants, but to our inclinations, for though the agricultural interest to a man, were endeavouring to convict the clerk of the weather of a deficiency in duty, others felt disposed to condemn his extra officious- ness in the granting of supplies. How- ever, we may learn henceforth to leave the aforesaid clerk in charge of the clouds, -whilst confining ourselves and our aspira- tions, to the lowly things of this world, we either plod or plow it, crawl or gallop over it at discretion. The refreshing and steady showers of Wednesday were much required and though they may have damped...
REVIVAL OF IMMIGRATION. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 18 October 1845
REVIVAL OF IMMIGRATION. WHESf the scheme of issuiug Government Deben- tures ou the bankrupt Lamí Fund was mooted, for the purpose of defraying tho coat of Immigration, twelve or eighteen months ago, it was sconted and ridiculed by all sensible people, and, as a matter of course, was abandoned accordingly. It was then recommended that ONLY 5000 immigrants should be annually imported to supply the demand for labor, the clamor for which, from the interior, ex- ceeded all reasonable bounds. Now, precisely the same insane measure lias beeu quietly carried ont iu Council, under another title, and the number of persons recommended to bc poured in upon thc labor market annually has been increased to 12,000 souls, yet the working classes and their organs have been silently looking on with folded arms, without making an effort to counteract the deadly blow which has been thus aimed nt their prosperity. It is to be presumed that tho contemptuous indiffer cnce with which all thc appeals of tho ...

OLLA PODRIDA[?] [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 18 October 1845
-o FOOT LACE AND CAPTURE-A sporting foot race took place in May last, in the neighbourhood of Parsons- town, Ireland, between two officers of the 66th Regt. for a bet of £10. Ensign Holmes backed himself to get to Philipstown, a distance of 35 English miles, against Lieutenant Astley. Unfortunately after a well contested race, they were arrested as deserters by the police at Philipstown, when within a few hundred yards of the barracks, who seeing &nbsp; them in such very light marching order, and going double quick, detained them until the circumstance was explained. Thc distance was performed in the short space of a few minutes less than six hours, which was at the rate of six miles an hour. MIXED GOVERN'MEST.-A' foreign gentleman, expressing in his . own mode of pronunciation the usticulty he had in giving its right name to the new ministry, said,.." It is-a part of vat you call.viek (whig) and port of vat you call tory, so I suppose it must be colled vic-tory.government."...

THE AUSTRALIAN CLAIM. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 25 October 1845
THE AUSTHALIAX CLAIM. Tho claim of Australia to bc placed on the same footing as Cunada ns to corn duties, so ably advo- cated by Mr. Hutt, is of a kind the least likely to succeed with Sir Robert reel. What is asked is mere justice, und mere justice is « hut Sir Robert Peel never grunts. No minister has made more concessions than Sir" Robert Peel, but he never mude ono ou the ground of equity or fairness. The claim of Australia is too good for success. If it could Lc shifted from its justice to »onie bad necessity the prospect of currying it would he wonderfully improved. Rebellion, or u state of discontent and disobedience bordering on it, would be a pretty sure way of attainment ; but then the question is, whether the gain would compensate the evils of disturbance. in the colony ? A9 Lord Howick, in a spirited and able speech, reminded Sir liebelt Peel, the Canada Corn Bill hud been grounded by him on the large principle that the colonies were entitled to bo treated us integral p...

Country News. -o WINDSOR Ou Saturday night last, some vile miscreaut or miscreants, of whoru the gallows, we sincerely hope hus only been cheated for a short time, effected au en- trance through oue of the windows of St. Matthews' Roman Catholic Chapel, Windsor, and disrobed the Altar of that sacred sanctuary of every thin? valua- ble ; amongst the rest a Silver Chalice, which had been presented to the Church by the la-.e Kev. Slr. M'Curiy, inscribed with that gentleman's uauie. Nut satisfied with robbery alone, these devils iucur uate¿ destroyed every thing within their reach. It is indeed painful to be called upon to report such disgraceful sceues of human depravity in a Christian Country. The indefatigable Chief Constable, Mr. SUerly, whose zeal and activity upon such occasions ure highly creditable, is on the look-out, and we have no doubt he will soon be the means of bring- ing these sacrilegious wretches to a speedy retribu- tion.

BELL'S LIFE IN SYDNEY. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 25, 1845. MORPETH AND HINTON REGATTA. The unfavourable state of the weather (a far as regards sporting matter,) had tende to damp the ardor of some of the ovei sqeamish, amongst the inhabitants of th Maitland district, on Monday last ; yel such was the interest manifested by th first Regatta, that both sides of the nobl banks of tho Hunter were at an early hou thronged by interested and interestini spectators, eagerly bent upon the cominj sport. The preparations made by the Hon Secretary and other gentlemen i:i the neigh bourhood, were of a nature to attract al classes, while, to the assiduity and zeal dis played by the aforesaid parties, may bi traced the renewal of that character fo liberality and munificence, which, in day of yore, so pointedly marked this ' wealth] and important district. ^ The River itself presented an unusuall; enlivening appearance, dotted as it wai with boats of all descriptions, manned b; amateurs of all sizes and na...

To tho Edltor of Bells Life in Sydney, Sir,-I uni happy ti) find that your valuable Sporting Chronicle is already making rapid strides in the district of Windsor, and bids fair, in the course of a very sliort time, to surpass in circula- tion tho greater portion of the periodicals now in es isteuce ; the dull monotonous tone of which, is becoming quite insipid lo the taste of every sporting member of the community, and in short, to al classes-(save and except)-usurers, and land sharks, whose whole soul and body is taken np with the minmi of pounds, shillings, und pence. Of what avail are tho speeches of thc Legislature to two-thirds of tho coinmuuity, it being u well-kuowa fact, that the very breuth of Sir George can extin- guish the light they may in their wisdom be disposed to throw upon any measure or subjpct. The little town -or Windsor is but, indeed, nu isolated spot in tho vast extent of territory on this side of the equator, yet, for fun and frolic, and gaiety of every descr...

SIR,-Having noticed in your publication of Saturday last, an Advertisement of Mr. Gannon's, under the inviting heading;, iu hand-bill type, of " The Greatest Sporting Novelty ever seen in New South Wales," and stating, that on Monday, among a great variety of promised sports, an Old Man Kangaroo was to be started, and in- viting gentlemen having Kangaroo-dogs to attend there, the Kanguroo to be thc prize of the owner of the clog that pulled him up, I proceeded out to Cook's River in the hope of enjoying a good day's sport, I In order that I might not lose any of thc Advertised Sports of the day, Ix was on the ground an hour before the appointed time, (one o'clock), expecting to see the Pigeon Match, for a Purse of Ten Sove- reigns, shot for.

LEGISLATIVE PROCEEDINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 25 October 1845
LEGISLATIVE PROCEEDINGS. j On Tuesday, the first matter brought be- fore elie Council was the Report of the Committee appointed to enquire into the qualification of Mr. Grant, the Member for the Northumberland Boroughs, The Report set out by complaining that Mr. Grant did not render the Committee any j assistance, by attending their meetings, although frequently invited to do so, or by supplying them with some written inform- ation upon the subject they had met to consider. It then set forth that the evidence respecting thc yearly value of the rents and profits arising fiom the lands conveyed to Mr. Grant, and out of which he hud made his declaration of qualifica- tion was very loose and indefinite-that the qualification was not only insufficient, but that it had been collusive ly and colour ably obtained, in direct contradiction of the Act of Parliament-but that owing to an evident omission on the part of the Legislative, the making a false declaration under the amended act, is not...

TROTTING MATCH AGAINST TIME.-Au extraordinary horse (of the sort, having ' been engaged for the last two years in drawing a bricklayer's cart), belonging to a respectable t:adesman of Eton, wa3 backed two months ago to trot five miles in seventeen minutes, for £50. The match came off on Monday evening, on Hartford bridge Flat. A great number of persons from the towns of Windsor and Eton, and the adjacent districts were present. The betting for some days previously was Uvo to one on time, and very large sums chanced hands upon the issue of the event. The horse (rising six years, and fifteen hands high), which had been well trained, and was in excellent condition, was admirably ridden by Cator, a professional jockey from town. The five miles were performed in seventeen minutes and twenty-five seconds . the backers of time thus winning, and to a' very large amount.
