THE GRAND PROJECTOR'S INVITATION. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 January 1845
j TIÏB GRAND PROJECTOR'S INVITATION, O como tatuó ¿Serial shipí ». To Chin» if you'll take a trip, Instead of Deal or Dover Come you who fain the world would see, Who are, or who would wish to be As much os half seat over. Don't heed tho snorters who declare Tho scheme must terminate in air, . And scorn upon it cost ; For those who think it is no go. Or that it will at best move Blow, Will find it stick quite fast. The mighty sprawling thing I've planned In scientific; language grand, Will give me vast renown ; And when I hear tba idle sneer *' It won't go up," 1 only fear " It never will go down.'' One tiling alfords me great content i A bill is now in Parliament, And 'twas my object still, ' ' Whatever else I might pursue, As men of common sense all kuew. But to bring in a bill. ... The fact is, those behind tho scene All very well know what I mean, To this my honour's pinn'd : It gaping boobies may amaze : Tho vessel I do'nt care to raise, .I want to raitt the tcintt.

He. stands, 25. inches in height, ia perfectly formed and . 18 years of age. "Mr. Thumb is a' " free bom. Yankee", and the son of persona of the usual'size. We learn from a friend recently arrived in the Persian, that he has been particularly noticed by the Queen'and tile royal household, and is in dress and manner completely fitted for tho beau monde. _ At the 'ex- " hibition on our friend's visit, the young gentleman's '.' papa begged him to inform the company What'he had had for brèaklast that morning, when stepping forward with most dignified strut to. resolve this ¡ni- . portant question, he roared at the top of .his voice, ' *; Two slices of ham, two hen's oggs, two pieces of bread and butter, and two cups' of tea."

FEEDING AFTER STARVATION, AND STARVATION SENSATION. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 January 1845
FEEDING AFTER STARVATION, AND STARVATION SENSATION. . About tho middle of the afternoon, one of the four who = had been sent forward returned with the joyful: intelligence that they had fallen in with a herd of not less than 17,000 sheep, and had succeeded in purchasing a sufficiency for the whole com- mand. Again we put spurs to our horses ; and a ride of half an hour brought us up .with theshepherds^ and. their charge, and to a line camping-ground on the Hio Gallinas. ' Here a scene of feasting ensued which beggars description. ' Wo had been thirteen days'upon the road, with really not provisions enough for three ; and now there was an abundance, bur starving men at once abendoned themselves to eating perhaps I should rather call it gormandiz- ing or stuffing. No less than twenty large fat sheep had been purchased and dressed ; and every, ramrod, as well as every stick that could be found, was soon graced with smoking ribs and. shoulders,' livers, and hearts. Many made themselves ...
To Correspondent. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 January 1845
Co «To vr ropoutirntö\ Ijaf dmr Bathurst Agent should, when correspond lng with this office, forward some local news. Wi' certainly feel gratified at the comparatively largue umber of enquiring correspondents. This circumstance in itself seems to tirga well of future support, as it is to be hoped that few but subscribers would submit arguments or bets for our decision. PLENIPOTENTIARY won the Derby and Oaks in his year, but when brought ont for the Ledger, he would not even answer the spur. Connelly, his jockey, declared that he had never put the horse to his speed in previous races, but the general impression throughout England at the time was, that both he and Mr. Datson, the owner, were implicated, directly or indirectly, in some arrangement to prevent his winning. Though subject to much investigation, thc matter has never clearly been settled. On previous occasions, every precaution hod been used (Mr. Datson actually sleeping in the box) and to say the least the manifest neglect...
THE TURF LAW. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 January 1845
THE TURF L A VV. BY CASTOR. " Who steals my purse steals trash 'tis something, nothing; 'Twas mine, 'tis his, and has been .slave to thousands: Bnthe that filches from nie my good name, Bobs me ofthat which not enriches him,' But makes me poor indeed." SnAKSPBARE. The passion for racing is one, at present, acknowledged and encouraged in every quarter, and almost every corner, of the globe; but in no country has it, for the last few years, continued to increase its influence so decidedly as in .our own. France may have come with a rush, when novelty was the principal attraction in a day's sport over the Champs de Mars, and ' vanity of one of the greatest inducements for encouraging the continuance of such an amusement; but the sanguine expectations of speedily rivalling, if not surpassing, tho country from which they imported the animal to accomplish this with, and tho man who undertook to show them how to set about it, have scarcely been realized ; and. thus, despite the Gallic vict...

BELL'S LIFE IN SYDNEY. SATURDAY; JANUARY ll, 1845. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 January 1845
BELL'S LIFE IN SYDNEY. ' SATURDAY; JANUARY ll,' 1845. . THE newspaper mania was surely never at such a height in any part of the globe as at present in New South Wales. AH classes are" infected,'arid "whether it'is to bc traced to atmospheric' influence1 or toi the rabid tusks 'of', some mad, erratic Editor "this deponent, knoweth.not." There is now scarcely any sect - undefended by literary lore-scarcely a clique without its organ, from ultra-Radicalism to " High Church ;" in fact (since we have entered the arena) from the Prize Ring to the Pulpit ;-and, if religious feeling is to be extended in the anticipated ratio, there will probably be more hard hilting, and möWräncbroW^ latter than the former. First, then, in eccentricity, upon this aspiring list comes " the Sentinel" evi- dently edited by some local preacher of the Wesleyan connexion. Tin's " sort of a journal," as he has dubbed a cotemporary, gives a sermon in place of an address, and, with the usual tact of a Methodist par...

Wigeon g>ïjootiitg» WINDSOR, On Thursday, January 2, a subscription or ten shillings each was entered into hy all thc crack shots in our little sporting community. Four hirds. The following is a correct list of the gentlemen entered t Mr. Burgis . Mr. C. Dibden " J. M'Quade " W. M'Quade " T. Marsden " T. Darling " II. Sheriff ' " C. Marsden " 0. Dayley " J.

Mnrsdcn, who may bo considered first roto shots, Marsden having killed three birds, and M'Quade three, but one of M'Quade's drop- ping the boundary, Mr. Marsden became the winner of the sweepstakes. A tent was erected on the ground, in which was deposited a plentiful supply of bottled ale, biscuits, &c, to which the parties immediately repaired, each seemed fully pleased with the day's sport, the winners laughing at the looscrs, and the lonscrs laughing at each other, every one attributing his - defeat to his gun, instead of himself.

SPORTING REVIEWER. The Turf. PETERSHAM. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 January 1845
SPORTING REVIEWER. PETERSHAM. In our last number, we inadvertently alluded to Mr. Sbaw, the landlord of the Woolpack Inn, as the " host of the Barley Mow," and as this Australian boniface has called our attention to thc matter, wc wil- lingly publish thc error, more especially as he seems resolved to keep the game alive. On Thursday last, the day appointed for tho match between the brother to Aus- tralia, and the piebald pony Tommy, a good sprinkling of the lovers of fun as- sembled on the course, and though most of these "gentlemen sportsmen" wore of the Plebeian order, there was no deficiency of the circulating medium, or of the disposi- tion to risk' its ownership. Shortly before 4 &lt;P. M., the parties made their appearance at the post. A match for- £5 a side, between Mr. Garland's bay pony Little Tit, late Cur- rency Lad, and Mr. Turton's piebald pony Hilly, catch weights, mile and a half, on the Petersham course. * The piebald is the smallest pony of the two, but his ...

And there, from very carly records we find that certain insignia of extraordinary prowess have been awarded to that member of " the Fancy" who has elevated himself by repeated displays of game and science lo tlie "lop of the tree"-tho lona fide champion (in conlrn-distinction to tho hero of coronations, and Lord Mayor proces- sions) wears the belt to signify his stand- ing in thc P.R., and as in every other sphere, from the civic functionary to the ambassador extraordinary, these construc- tive appendages of merit are ^regarded with an eye of emulation, the fellow of that leathern zone which now ornaments the gigantic dimensions of Ben Caunt in Gieat Britain, and which is regarded with jealousy by Chalker and Hough in New South Wales, may, by exciting ri- valry ho more productive of com- petition in th3 ...

COMICO-ACADEM.ICS. SINCE our last publication, considerable anxiety lias been manifested as to the rendezvous of this association, and other particulars relative to its formation, con- stituency, and so forth. The usual oracles have been consulted, but in vain, and the mystery remains unresolved. As we have already hinted, however, the ,Club is in lealityj^no secret society, nor have its members further motive for " concealment thau tv wish lo become jnore jerfectly organized, previous to inviting publicity. The chair was taken on Thursday last, shortly after 8, P.M., and as some new regulations compel the members to appear in a species of surplice, or short Toga, the effect iras in pleasing unison with the design of this comic, though academic, body. j ' The subject of the week, " English Composition," is' one which did not admit of much comparative burlesque, but as we aro enabled to give a lengthened extract, it would be out of place to prefix any com- ment.
