THE ENSUING MAYORALTY. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 1 November 1845

THE ENSUING MAYORALTY. IF ever a public functionary was disgraced and rendered ridiculous by the inconsistent zeal of his friends! ! Thomas Broughton, the nether garment maker of George-street, is that individual. The avaricious rascal, who, with starched cravat and spectacles, first swindles, and then is prosecuted by, his neighbour, becomes in the onset an object of dis- gust and scorn. The publication of his trial and condemnation stamps him as scoundrel, and the branding.iron of public ¿ensure is immediately applied. Time however weaves the web of forgetfulness around his shame, and years may erase the recollection of his guilt. Would he invite to a retrospection of his works, by a strain ing contest with unsullied fame in pursuing the vain phantoms of ambition ? AVould he endeavour to rake up reminiscences at once derogatory and damnatory to his interests ? pr would his *' cordial supporters," if men of sense advise him to such course ? Well, these remarks may not have any dire...

BERRIMA-T.J.-We have neither received the , f money spoken of, nor the order for this Journal, . which is, however, now forwarded. The Irish Furlong contains 72 yards more than the English cafMurement, consequently the Irish mile is 2330 yards in length-that is, nearly one third of a mile longer. NEWMARKET is ONE toss. The date referred to, 18th June, 1843. It can be seen at our office. PENRITH.-The article from " A Retired Military I Officer" hos been received by the writer of this " paper, to be perused and forwarded. It certainly must undergo revision, es we would not wantonly injure the feelings of any man. We will enquire, however, into the case, relative to the Coroner of Penrith. " The Retired Officer" mast recollect that he is dispossessed of his lower tier of guns, and unable to give satisfactory battle.

MAITLAND; A melancholy accident occurred licite ou Saturday last; A fine intelligent boy, named John Healy, was ' drowned while attempting to swim the river al M'Dougal's Falls. Every effort to restore animation was made by some medical gentlemen who were iu prompt attendance on him, but in vain. The Good Desigtl Lodge of Odd Fellows held their first anniversary at Host Tiuson's, Buck Head, West Maitland, on Tuesday evening, where a ball was given, which was attended by o pretty rich dis- play of thc fair sex. Dancing was kept up with greal spirit till morning. Tlie caterpillar have niado their appearance in the neighbourhood in great quantities, where they have committed serious ravages with the crops. '

THIS DAY'S ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 1 November 1845

THIS DAY'S ELECTION. Oüit sporting leaders will probably think little, and care less, about the exciting strug- gles and vigorous efforts of the several candi- dates for civic honors. The town exhibits ample testimony of those " vigorous efforts," In every quarter and angle of it, placards .ire to be seen against walls, houses, and posts, with the name of each candidate on them, calling upon the Electors to vote for " him." The candidates themselves, who have been re- cruiting their forces at Committee soirees during the week, and plying them "with grog till they " saw double," are running helter skelter in every direction, urging and shoving on the tardy voters to the poll. A few hours more will terminate the contest, when several men will be elected City Councillors who will, 'tis not improbable to thinking, care as little for the citizens of Sydney, for their interests or for their welfare, as it is natural to suppose men inflated with civic ambition may be supposed to do.

Looal Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 1 November 1845

Xioool Intelligence. CoNSPiitAcv DBFEATED.-About 2 months ago; Mr. Wineberg, jeweller, was arrested on a charge, made by , a mau named Butler, of having in his possession various articles of jewellery that had been stolen from him (Butler) more than two years since. He more particularly swore to a ring, pin, and gold chain, all of which were upon Mr. Wine bcrg's person when he was taken into custody. When the case came on for hearing at the Police Office, Butler called a witness of the nam i of Gains berg, who swore that he sold to Butler tho identical articles ho claimed; on such positive evidence Wincberg was, of course, committed to .take his trial. Shortly after his committal, being on bail, to his great surprise ho received a message from Butler, by a person mimed Osborne, requesting an interview. Not knowing well how to act with a person who had already preferred Buch charges against him, ho . named the circumstance to his friend, Mr. J. J. Cohen, who advised him to meet Butle...

Varieties. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 1 November 1845

Varieties. -o ANECDOTES OF PITT.-Many witticisms have been attributed to Pitt which are utterly unworthy of his great talents. The following, however, deserve repetition : The lively Duchess of Gordon, who had not seen him for some time before, one day asked him if he had lately talked as much nonsense as usual. " Madam," said he, " I have not heard as much." " Pray," said the Duchess, " as you know all that occurs in the political world, tell me some news." " I am sorry, madam," said the minister, " that I cannot oblige you, as I have not read the papers to-day." " I wish you to dine with me at ten to-night," said the Duchess. " Madam, I cannot," was Pitt's answer, "for I am engaged to sup with the Bishop of Lincoln at nine." While the volunteer mania was raging, the corporation of London offered to raise a troop on condition that it should not be expected to Icare the country. " It cer- tainly never shall," said Pitt, "except in case of an invasion. HENRY IVTII OF FRANCE.-A satiri...

REMINISCENCES OF A WEEK AT OXFORD. No. I. (Continued from our Last.) [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 1 November 1845

REMINISCENCES OF A WEEK AT OXFORD. No. I. BY A VOYAGER. J (Continued from our Last.) In my last I brought flown the Cantab's recollections of a week at Oxford to where K--, of Worcester, was prepared for his deb&t-" his first appearance on any Hun- ten" ^ Breakfast, on the eventful morning, had just concluded, and, adopting the nar- rator's words, " the hoofs of sundry hacks were now heard resounding under the trees, which you all remember in front of Magdalen ; for the clock was striking nine, and, almost simultaneously, the buggy made his appearance, in which V--was to coach poor K-? over to ' the meet.' Thus we got offwell together, and after a halt-short, but sufficient to light fresh cigars and to replenish pocket-pistols-at j Wheatley, I " We onward passed, nor paused anew, Till tho well-known hostel rose to view.

BELL'S LIFE IN SYDNEY. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1845. The Turf. ASCOT-HEATH RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 1 November 1845

BELL'S LIFE IN SYDNEY. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1845. - Tbe Turf. ASCOT-HEATH RACES. Tlie races terminated shortly after 5 o'clock, and there ensued a scene of con- fusion that we have seldom seen surpassed on a Derby-day; it was aggravated in no small degree by the clouds of dust that completelyencircled the course and rendered driving, sans accident, a task requiring more than ordinary skill and carefulness. Several collisions took place, and panels out of number were smashed. Ten or twelve horses died in the immediate vicinity of the Heath, and many others were beaten to a stand-still before they reoched Windsor. On the whole, however, the " Cup-day" of 1845,.in all the attributes of racing greatness, may fairly invite comparison with any of its predecesors. .The following is a sketch of the sport : Her Majesty's Plate of 100 guineas; for 3-yr olds, 7st. 21b. ; 4 yrs, Ost. 21b. ; 5 yrs, lOst. ; 0 yrs and aged, lOst. ¿lb.

FOX-HUNTING IN CANADA. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 1 November 1845

FOX-HUNTING IN CANADA. There is nothing new in the remark, that in whatever part of the world Englishmen are to be found, there, also, have been transferred -the-manly national sports of their father land ; and let the country or climate be ever so adverse to. their adop- tion, all obstacles are met with a dogged . perseverance, truly characteristic; .This is. applicable to fox-hunting in Canada, where the early and long winter reduces the hunting season to a short one indeed ; it commences as soon as the crops are got in, about the middle of September, and conT finites till Jack Frost, with his iron hand, puts an end to the sport. ; This, of course, varies in different years ; some seasons I have been known to close by the 15th of November,and hunting has been continued, in others, to the 12th or 14th of December, which was the case last year. The hounds, however, are again in the field for two or' 'three weeks in April and May ; but the riding, at this season of the year, is exces...

However vio- lently we differ from the stringent code of Sir Andrew Agnew or his disciples, and however uu compromisingly we wish to support the manly art of self-defence, we cannot violate the decencies of com- mon-place morality, to serve men who do more to injure the interests of the F.

Cardinal York, that Mr. Elwes, the celebrated miser, is said to have lent the Earl of Grosvenor 3,000 gs, to make up his stakes. Although the betting was three to one in his favour, he would have been compelled to have allowed his oppouent's horse ta have 'walked over,' but for the unsolicited liberality af the eccentric miser, who, on his return from seeing his lordship win the raco, scrambled over the Devil's Dyke, at Newmarket, nt the risk of breaking his neck lo avoid paying a turnpike. THE FAMOUS RACER ECLIPSE.-Suoh is said to have been the bad temper of Eclipse, that at one tinao it was thought impossible to bring him to the post except as a gcldiug.

NIGHT AUCTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 1 November 1845

NIGHT AUCTIONS. IT is au established and universally-acknowledged j axiom in political economy, that legislative in- terference with freo trade, provided it be in a lawful avooatiou, is impolitic, oppressive, and unjust towards those engaged in it, and generally dis- astrous in its results to the whole community. 'Tis true there are somn commodities, a licentious traffic in which would be productive of much ! mischief, tending to the demoralisation of the people, and the danger of public health and morals; : such is the traffic in spirituous and fermented I liquors, which is very properly placed under wholc ' some restrictions ; but any restraint beyond that j absolutely necessary to tho preservation of peace and good order, must bc considered as militating j unjustly against thc rights of the subject and the usages of freo trade. Now, the vocation of tho auctioneer is a lawful one, and not obnoxious to the objection against those alluded to, yet it has been placed under restriction...

Eventful are they, indeed, to Australia-big with importance-pregnant with interest. On tho result of the elections, this day, depends the fate of our nourishing and extending city. Unless certain members arc elected, it will be augured, no doubt, that Sydney will retrograde-and that its interests will bc neglected. Tho several candidates in thc j field have been exerting themselves during the week, " with all their might," to muster a largo body of supporters-and have been holding meet- ings to organize their forces. On Monday evening last, Mr. Brown's friends and supporters met toge- ther, in Mr. Alartiu Gill's long roora, City Wiue Vaults, George-street.

Sng-llah Extracts, BREACH OP PROMISE OP MARRIAGE.-At the Norfolk Assizes, au action was brought by a young woman named Cballis against a farmer named Howard, to recover compensation for a breach of promise of marriage. In the year 184'i, the plaintiff was housemaid in tho service of one Mr. Livermore, a tradesman at Thurlow, and the defendant was at that time the sou of a farmer iu the neighbourhood. They met, and soon', becoming enarmourod, he paid his address to her.

Original Correspondence. To tke Editor of Bells Life in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 1 November 1845

Original Correspondence -o To tko Editor of Bells Life in Sydney. SIR,-I request your insertion of this answer to an anonymous letter which appeared in your last, signed An Old Sportsmnn. Who the individual can he that has thus assiguod to himself the title ol Sportsman, I cannot imagine; hut this I know that he has no pretensions thereto, ns he would have us believe. He states that there were no matches at pigeons at Mr. Oaunon's but for a few bottles of ale, and by so doing displays both his ignorance and ill will, and makes his misnomer apparent. The fact is, I there were three regular matches of pigeons shot for considerable prizes, and because Mr. Old Sportsman was not asked to partake of some of the ale with which the BEAL SPORTSMEN were regaling them- selves, he felt his dignity offended, and left the ground in dudgeon ; his angry feel ings afterwards gave birth to the letter alluded to As to the non-appear- ance of ibo kangaroo, all real sportsmen on the ground were made awa...
