Family Notices [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 8 November 1845

DIED, On the evening of the 5th instant, a remarkable epoch in the annals of British history, Old Sal Jones, better known by the facetious cognomen of the Old Buff, after a fifty years' residence in this colony, the whole of which time has been devoted to the interest of the West India Company, and upon a fair computation she has swallowed the contents of as many puncheons as, if emptied out, would   form an aqueous arena for the forthcoming Hawkes- bury Regatta.

Sic qua tisiphone, quibus exagitare colubris ?* Ia prose or verse, the favorite theme Is Love's celestial passion ; Yet talk or print in praise of Marriage Is quite against the fashion !

The Turf. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 8 November 1845

Tne Turf. ? JOHN DAY, JUN., one of the leading jockeys on the English Turf, and son pf the celebrated, " Honest John," has been banished for ever from the course at Newmarket by the Stewards of the Jockey Club, for instituting a false charge against Mr. Crommelin, and "en- deavouring to support his statements by wilful falsehood." The main allegation set forth that this last-named gentleman had offered a bribe of £1000 or £1500, in order to pro cure the defeat of the Melody colt in the Derby of 1840. The sentence thus pro- nounced by Lords Stradbroke, Exeter, Nor- manby-Hon. Col. Anson, and Col. Peel, lias been looked upon as too severe and ruinous, Bell's Life in London remarking that they " can only regret that the Jockey Club have not some graduated scale of punish- ment, in some measure proportioned to the offences committed. " We even yet hope that his judges will not be inexorable, and that they will " temper justice with "' mcroy." Let Iiis exolusion from the Turf be for n li...

"MR. BLAND MADE SOME OBSERVATIONS." [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 8 November 1845

"MR. BLAND MADE SOME OBSERVATIONS." SUCH is the facetious vein ¡a which " the best political writer of the day," (as he styles himself) indignantly veuts his em- ployers spleen upon the honorable Member for Sydney, for daring to stoop to expostu- lation. Such is the copied diction of dis- dain suggested, or employed by the wrong Reverend Ralpho, whoso vigilantly watches over our political hemisphere,'records the workingsofour mystified jurisprudence,and capriciously either stamps the logical powers of our ablest orators as vague and dis- jointed frivolity, or lauds their lingual labor as energetic and superhuman. The guiding star to either extreme being that prudential vacillation which has hitherto tended " to place their" wavering " glory in moderation." But, moderate as may be their glory, and co existing with this glory, their.avarice, their duplicity, their innate vulgarity, their jealousy, and their abso- lute carelessness as to public benefit, we would ask, are there/not elem...

EPSOM RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 8 November 1845

I EPSOM RACES, I Epsom. Races were instituted in 1779, Lord Derby gave the stakes which still go by the name of the Derby, immediately on establishing the races. On the following year he instituted the Oaks race, calling the prize by that name, because it was the name of his country seat. It is curious enough that his own horse Bridget won the first Oaks. Epsom races take place only once-a-year. An attempt was made a few years since to establish a race at Epsom in September, but there being no prospect of succeeding, the idea was abandoned. * Epsom races last four days. . They take place in June.commencing on Tuesday,and ending on Friday. Thursday, being the day of the Derby, is the great, the impor- tant day, always big with the fate of thousands of gamblers, some on a large, some on a small scale. Friday is the next greatest day in point of importance. Ou that day the Oaks is run for, but the at- tendance on that day is not at all to be compared with that which graces the con- tes...

REMINISCENCES OF A WEEK AT OXFORD. No. I. (Continued from our Last.) [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 8 November 1845

REMINISCENCES OF A WEEK AT OXFORD. No. I. BY A VOYAGER. (Continued front our Last.) Many ridiculous exhibitions are afforded by these juvenile nuisances, some almosl ?>ast credence, and one of which was Te- ated by my friend B-, during our three miles ride to Bagley ; being brought to his recollection by three evidently freshmen riding past us at the top of their pace, cracking their whips, and making inef- fectual -attempts to stand in their stirrups. The story was, that some time previously, when the fixture was either Shot over, or some other place equally accessible to all Oxonians,, two well-mounted cavaliers in untarnished pinks and tops, decidedly then for the first time in contact with the saddle, made their appearance, exciting but little attention beyond a passing remark upon $;¿ their " verdant nature," as they, were over heard expressing astonishment that they m did not hear " tlie dogs bark." However, |t; they presently became'more prominent in |£ the day's sport-Rey...

THE LORDS OF THE TREASURY AND THE COMMUTED PENSIONERS. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 8 November 1845

THE LORDS OF THE TREASURY AND THE COMMUTED PENSIONERS. NEVER, perhaps, since England was styled and justly so, "the envy of surrounding nations"-was there a blemish found on her, comparable to the rascally act of the I Whig Government in 1831-gulling these poor men, that fought the battles of their country, and were discharged covered with honorable wounds, to sell their pensions for POUR, years in advance; but, did the Home Government give them that FOUR years in advance in the land of their birth, and where they may hope to sleep in the graves of their fathers ? Did they grant it to them for the purpose of stimulating their industry, by the encouragement of a little capital ? Alas, No ! But they truckled with the Walkingshaws, and a'herd of un- principled, ship-owners ; to deport these poor men and their families to this and other . colonies, by false representations ; and skinned them of the last shilling, the award of their country ; to defray the passage, (aye,) starving passag...

MATRIMONY. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 8 November 1845

MATRIMONY. Some scoundrel- we cnn Apply no milder epithet to the advertiser-iu one of the daily journals last week, described himself as " a young; man of personal attractions and agreeable maimers," and, moreover, expressed some anxiety " to obtain the hand of a lady of good education, ami, withal, : possessed of a fortune of about £300 a-year !" The ? old excuse was urged, that his professional duties prevented him searching for an object who could return his affections and render his domestic hearth a scene of happiness and bliss. It certainly amounts to criminality to insert advertisements of this character, and we are glad that the respectable portion of the press regard them as fraudulent, and reject them. What object have men in view who ' advertise for wives ? Ccrtniuly not matrimony. . What then can be their aim ? We will reply to this question ourselves ; and 'add, that there is a regularly-organised gang in Loudon at this mo- ment," from whom nearly all the advertisements...

THE RING.—The fight for the championship of England was to have taken place on the 9th of September last, £200 a-side, between Caunt and Bendigo.   Owen Swift and Johnny Broome were to fight for £1,000 a-side, but doubts were entertained in London whether the proposed match would come to anything. A.B.—A sporting bet can be legally recovered if under £10.   U. and G. are playing at quoits; U. throws a quoit     which reaches the hob without being a ringer, G. throws a quoit which is a ringer but does not touch the hob. Which scores, U. or G.? U.   wins. The London players measures from hob to iron.

Whether we admire most the variety of esculnnts, the freshness mid taste with which they are presented, the quantity displuyed, together with flowers of various descrip- tions, we are decidedly of opinion that when such exertions are made, which develops the capabilities of the soil, they ought command (.«s they deservedly do) public patronage.
