Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 25 October 1845

DIED, Suddenly, of apoplexy, on Sunday morning last, October 19, Mr. Wheelock Price, Pitt-street, Sydney, and late of Dundalk, County Louth, Ireland. In him a disconsolate wife has to mourn the loss of a fond and affectionate husband ; his ten children, that of a kind and indulgent parent ; and a numerous circle of acquaintances, by whom   he was universally respected, a truly valuable friend.               At the residence of Mr. Richard Williams, Cas- tlereagh-street, in the City of Sydney, in the Colony of New South Wales, on the 18th instant, Mr. John Price, aged 40 years, a native of the City of Chester, in Great Britain, formerly a Ser- geant in her Majesty's Coldstream Regiment of Foot Guards, and for many years an Inspector of Police for the City of Sydney, in which establish- ment he was always considered a most active and intelligent officer, and who is much regretted by...

-Police Reports. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 25 October 1845

Police Reports.   DISPUTED RIGHT OF WAY.–James Simpson alias     Faucy, of the Redfern Estate, was brought before the bench on Tuesday, to answer the information and complaint of Mrs. Crowley of the same place, for committing an assault upon her person, on Sunday afternoon. It appeared in evidence, that a private road divides the residences of the complain- ant and the defendant, and in consequence of com-     plainant's husband refusing to remove his horse from the side of the road, which he did by indeli- cately " clapping his behind" at defendant, a tussle ensued between them. Mrs. Crowley, observing the encounter from her own door, seized the broom- stick and rushed to the rescue with a war-whoop, like that of a chief of the Chippaware Tribe. Being disarmed of her weapon by a man, who met her in her desperate career towards the scene of ac- tion, she dashed on, and " tooth and nail" attacked the defendant, assailin...

Varieties. TAWELI/S CLOTHES.-Wc ore told by tho Morning l'ost flint " a gentleman" ^went to Aylesbury tile night before the execution, to make a bargain with the hangman for the suit of black in which Tawell was to suffer. Anxious not to lo3e one shred of thnt immortal man," the gentleman offered £25 for the bluck coat and trousers aud silk vest which, being worn by a murderer in his death struggle, had, of course, magic iu their web." It is a pity for the moral tone of society that the gentleman was . disappointed in his mission, the precious apparel being consigned to the consuming earth, " It was I hinted that tho clothes were required as an addi tional attraction for a certain public exhibition in the metropolis !" Wo have nu doubt that they would have made, uccording to play-bill flourish, a '* tre- mendous hit." How gentlemen, and tender, delicate ladies-sensitive souls that squeal at a black beetle, or the most " monstrous mouse,"-would have flocked to gaze on the buttoulcss ...

GIPPS WARD. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 25 October 1845

GIPPS WARD. Jin. WALKER'S COMMITTEJ:.-On Tuesday evening last, a muster of Mr. "Walker's friends took pince in the "Dumbarton Castle" public house, Kent street, in a room which was inconveniently small, and, as a natural consequence, oppressively wnrm. For some time previous to the chair being taken» some of the electors, perhaps, from a lack of some- thing else to say,' or from a desire to relax their minds, by indulging in light and easy conversation, kept up a flying interchange of astute and profound observations upon thc_smnll ness of the apartment-one remarking that " the room was very small"-a second, after casting his eye round it, and performing a cubital measure- ment of it in a glance, saying "ye3, indeed, the room is small"-and a third, after looking at the first speaker, then at the second speaker, and iastly at the bottom button of his waistcoat, adding "By my Fcaks ! it is small, and no mistake-and what's moro it is " hot" into the bargain." About half an hour was " w...

Original Corrospoaaenco. CIVIC ECONOMY. To the Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. SIR,-Whilst yon uro on the snbject of Muni- cipal Elections, it may ho opportunely in roe to contribute my mite of information for the benefit of the respective candidates whose mottoes are "Guard your interest with economy," and who think their ravings in this style command the snpport of tho constituency they are likely to represent. In the name of common sense what eoouomy does last veal's working of our City Council exhibit; to rate ns at threepence in the pound, and for what purpose ? to keep a huge piece of machinery in "slug- gish motiou" which eould have been accelerated had the c'tizens been t-ixed-say about ninepence in the pound-but our wise acres have substituted the bastard for the legi ti mete, and instead of ¡m. provcment keeping pace with the " times,'' and taxes, civic economy, cameliou-liko changes compaction so that bastard bantling niggardliness for upwards of £3000 per annum is' expe...

PRIVILEGE. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 25 October 1845

. PRIVILEGE. Tins absurd question was again mooted in the Legislative Council, on Thursday woek lost, by Messrs, Cowper, Lowe, Windeyer, and Wentworth, who were appointed as a SELECT Committee, to | enquire into the qualification of Patrick Grant, Esq., to take his seal in tho House ns representative for thc Northumberland Boroughs, although the motion of the members for Cumberland was opposed in this unseemly proceeding by the Colonial Secretary and all the Crown Nominees who took part in the de- bate thereon. Mr. Robinson repudiated tho idea of treating the question as one of privilege, of which Mr. Lowe is the avowed and invincible champion, and denounced its agitation, as an act of extreme indelicacy towards Mn Grant, after he had been permitted to escrciso the functions of a member of tho House. The whole proceeding sufficiently manifested the petty jealousy of the would-be Botany Buy aristocracy-an aristocracy of wealth aloue, devoid of a particle of talent to recommend it-tow...

PHILLIP WARD. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 25 October 1845

PHILLIP WARD. A MEETING of about one hundred and fifty of the Electors of the above 'Ward took place on last Monday evening at Mr. Dish ington's, Odd Fellows Hall, public house, Brickfield Hill, in compliance with the request of Dr. Duigan. Unlike all the other Committee Meetings-Dr. Duigan's was strictly a Teetotal Meeting. Not, that we for a moment mean to insinuate-Heaven forefend that we should be guilty of so foul a calumny-that the majority of the electors present were Teetotallers, or any thing like that aqueous portion of our fellow citizens. Quite the reverse, they seemed not at all disinclined-indeed, rather inclined-to partake of the enjoyment afforded by a glass, or, mayhap two, of good biandy-and water. They looked like men, who, if they had a couple of glasses of that exhilirating beverage before them, would sing ad in- finitum in harmonious chorus, the fashion- able ditty, 4< We won't go home till morn I ing." . We cannot say much as to the I amount of busi...

BRISBANE WARD. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 25 October 1845

' BRISBANE WARD. ELECTORS of Brisbane Ward! you are the most unfortunate, and must, as a matter of course, be the most ^disconsolate set of "expectants" in existence. We have been pondering on your condition since Tuesday last-anxiously considering as to what you may have done-what crime you may have been guilty of-to bring down surh heavy and grievous visitation-such a calamity as has befallen you. And the more we en- quire into the matter, the more are we unable to arrive at any satisfactory con- clusion respecting it. But, Electors of Briscane Ward, you have one source of consolation left you-the misfortune to which we allude is not confined to you. " On horrors head, horrors accumulating," it has extended its evil influence, and, in one all-absorbing embrace, involves the eu tire body of the citizens of Sydney-the " universal" citizens of Sydney, as a civic orator would powerfully style them. This is really lamentable ! It requires a vast deal of fortitude and equanimity of spir...

The Ring. HOUGH AND HADDIGADDY. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 25 October 1845

/Vj THe Ring. "/^ HOUGH AND HADDIGADDYI THE sparring: benefits which have taken place during the last few weeks in York-street, seem lo have been productive of at least one germ. The two men whose names appear at the heading of this paragraph are again matched to compete for fistic fame, and on this occasion the by no means insignificant sum of One Hundred and Seventy Pounds of the outrent coin of the realm will be risked upon the event. In their former contest llough was victorious, though whether or not the laurel is to be stripped from his brow in the approaching mill, involves a question of too much intricacy for us to solve. Both the one and the other are seemingly confident of success, while neither is deficient of the encouraging stimulus resulting from a set of sanguine backers. The final adjustment of preliminaries took place on Monday evening last, when a docu- ment, of which the following is a copy, was drawn up and signed.

REMINISCENCES OF A WEEK AT OXFORD. No. I. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 25 October 1845

REMINISCENCES Ol- A WEEK AT OXFORD. No. I. DY A VOYAGER,. "They'll go when they've got it," as Tom, the old huntsman ol' the East Essex fox- hounds once said, when his hitch pack were puzzled on a cold scent, and he wished to mitigate the impatience of a nobby sub- scriber. "They'll go when they've got it!" And I can apply the observation as most true and apt to my own thoughts and pen: " They'll go when they've got it"-that is, a beginning. , There is no jibbing when you're in it, But how the d-1 to begin it ; Ah! " there's the rub,"-always has been, and is so now ; and after " taking a cast," wide and all round, I shall begin almost at the beginning-for the first of my remi- niscences shall be of college life ; but let me be foreguarded, and all your readers forewarned, that I by no means intend to acknowledge, admit, or insinuate that I am the scapegrace of whom they are the " con- fessions." Let it suffice that I avouch they are true-and some of your Oxford readers will assuredl...

PUBLIC MEETING. THE DISTILLATION BILL. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 25 October 1845

PUBLIC MEETING. I THE DISTILLATION BILL. On Monday lait, some 30 or 40 spiritec individuals assembled, in high dudgeon, al the Royal Hotel, to declaim against the injustice of the Distillation Bill, now undei consideration of the Legislative Council. The principal orators-that is, those who spoke longest and most vehemently against the measure, were Mr. Robert Cooper, senr., the great Colonial Distiller; Mr. Councillor Fisher (whose indignation knew no boundy); Mr. Abercrombie, of Great-Barrier-Mining notoriety ; and a Mr. Harper, who harped on the same incessant string that'had been strummed on ad iiascam by the preceding speakers. Mr. Robert Campbell, junr., on taking the chair, opened the ball with an harangue of half an hour's duration, in which he denounced the bill as one not only affect- ing distillers alone, but calculated to mili- tate against the rights of every British sub- ject-inasmuch as it would introduce in its operation all the odious machinery of the excise laws-ef...

THE PORT PHILLIP PRESS. To, t[?]e Editor of Bells Life in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 25 October 1845

THE PORT PHILLIP PRESS. To the Editor of Bells Life in Sydney. Sir,-There is no greater criterion of the morality of a people than the morality of its press, and wi will always find that where immoral and impropej writings prevail, there, the people are invariahlj found to be-degenerate in their taste, and immoral and licentious in their conduct-so true it is tba the press assumes its tone of morality from thc people. So long as the present standard o: morality prevails arnon; us, so long will our press maintain its ascendency as a colonial press, thougl a portion bf it should pander occasionally to a de ' praved taste, [or bo subservient to a party, from ¡ sinister and improper motives. This standard ol morality, however, be it remarked, is somewhal different to what it was iu the beginning of thc last century, and if a newspaper must needs adhere to the custom of writing " ad libitum," us in those early days, it must verily renounce its' " locus staudi" ainoug our press, and take ...

HOUGH AND HADDIGADDY. THIS match is off, the stakeholder having paid over the £40 deposited into the hands of Harrigan, lt appears that at the meeting held by appointment at Mr. Benjamin Sir rom's, some dissatisfaction ivas expressed by the backer's of Hough as to the impartiality and soundness of the stakeholders, and a de- sire was evinced by these parties to place the amount already down, together with any further deposits that might be made, in the hands of some other person, Mr. William Smithee, backed by the advice of friends, objected to this course being pursued, and re- solutely maintained the point. He stated that at best his was a thankless and a troublesome office, but that as both men had originally consented to delegate this^omewhat important trust to him, and in their cool moments had named him, as the articles would prove, the final stakeholder, he should abide by their choice.and decision.
