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

Country News.   WINDSOR. POLICE OFFICE, SATURDAY. — AndrewHarford   and Joseph Briggs, underwent a private examination before J. L. Scarvell, Esq., and were remanded till Tuesday, when they were again brought before their Worship, William Cox, and J. L. Whittaker, Esq., privately examined, and finally commited to take their trial at the Supreme Court for Sacrilege. The circumstances under which these offenders were ap- prehended, reflects the highest credit on the zeal and activity of the chief constable. The Chapel was robbed on the 18th ultimo ; in the course of a few days after, Mr. Shirley, by a singular circum- enstance, found out that the prisoner Harford had been making enquiry as to the process of melting silver; in consequence of which, he kept a watch- ful eye upon him, until the 27th following, when he saw him enter, the humble dwelling of a person of rather a doubtful character, and seeing a pair of scales sent for and brought, he immediately ru...

THE LATE CITY ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 15 November 1845

; THE- LATE CITY ELECTION, Ü - To the Editor .of Bell's Life in Sydney. Sin,-Ev^rr"^"¿nt-thinkingjcitizen. will be well satisfied with the resúk\óf the ^contest, as far as relates to the"*5Ia^ralty. The new Mayor elect is decidedly preferable to his opponent, on account of his superior ability and. tact. -; He had besides the justest claim to the honor, not only from the way in which he was treated last year, but also* from the scandalous manoeuvres that have been practised against him this year. Oh requisitionists ! How ashamed you ought to be of yourselves ! But with regard to the election^gf Alder- men, there is evidently great dissatisfaction, especially in the case of Mr. Broughton. Here is a man who, by some means or other, is able to exhibit a considerable show of wealth, and, we suppose in consequence, was honored by being elected Councillor and Alderman; but sure, indeed, am I, that it was not in consequence of his noble origin (not knowing who his father1 was) nor on accou...

BELL'S LIFE IN SYDNEY. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 1845. THE HAWKESBURY REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 15 November 1845

BELL'S LIFE IN SYDNEY. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 1845. THE HAWKESBURY REGATTA. ! TAKING the cue from our Northern Friends, VandMnstigalte'd by tim ruling, passion which in all sporting matters seems to pervade the general body of the-inhabitants of this district, the promote!s of the late Aqua- tic sports creditably evinced an anxiety, hitherto unparalleled in combination of effort, and (its sure effect,) vigorous fulfil- ment of design. On Tuesday, the launch of Mr. Panton's " Aurora," created some excitement while his " Sylph," and sylph- like Funny lay respectively courting the admiration and apprehension of the inter- ested parties on the River. The Shamrock had been hauled up under the Fig Tree, and during tho day, was visited by many of the nautical speculators and others anxious to glean by inspection, the state of the odds ; as this first race was to have been the "great affair of the day. In ihe evening, as appointed, the entries were made at Coffey's Hotel, in the well appoin...

The re-establishment of your sporting journal has given much satisfaction to ns outsiders, for although nearly out of the civilised world, we like to hear how bets go in the sporting circles. Our flourishing little community in the favored districts of Moreton Bay and the Darling Downs are nothing lotit to en- courage with their purse and preseuce the in- vigorating sports of the Turf, Sec. A considerable outlay hos already been incurred in {laying out a beautiful bit of turf for the uext meeting of the Moreton Bay Jockey Club, thc situation being within a mile or so of the township, thus affording a chance for toddlers to seo the fun, and enjoy once' a year a spell from the cares of the world.

To the Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 15 November 1845

To the Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. Sm,-The obscure journal that assumes to itself the name and the duties of' Sentinel' of; the Church of England, thus spits its spleen against Mr. M'Dermott, in an arti- cle that appeared in its columns of Wed- nesday lasty relative to his election to the Mayoralty.-" A good deal of party feeling d ¡splayed itself amongst the supporters of Mr. M'Dermott out of doors, who are chiefly composed of the low Irish mob, with which that gëntleman has ever identified himself, &c". The trash that appears every Wed- nesday in this watchful Sentinel; has hitherto been considered by all men of com-' mon understanding unworthy of answer, and indeed, it might have still wasted it's sweet- ness on the desert air, had it not attacked a gentleman, whose tenets are the same as those which it professes to uphold, but who has the misfortune to belong to a country that has already given the colony its most popular Governor,. and has the honor at present to n...

To the Editor of Bells Life in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 15 November 1845

To the Editor of Bells Life in Sydney'. I Stn,-The unfortunate catastrophe of tho."- Catarar qui" has no doubt awoke the philanthropic feelings of .the whole New South Wale's community. Legis- lative enactments have, passed, and lighthouses are. to be erected. In the mean time, Perhaps you will inform the public that from Ü0 miles W.N.W.'of the Harbinger Beef, soundings from CO fathoms, de- creasing to 48, can be found. Of course on entering Bass' Straits the soundings are about SO to 35 fathoms, very irregular, deepening towards Cape Otway. In proceeding through this channel to the westward, and the wind hanging strong against you, good anchorage is to be found under Sea Elephant Kock or Tole, but a shoal with O' fathoms exists about 8 miles E. of it. - . .

THE POLITICAL CLERICAL OF THE HERALD, AND MR. GRANT! [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 15 November 1845

THE POLITICAL CLERICAL OF THE /? HERALD, AND MR. GRANT! THERE'S scarce a number of the trashy one-sided Herald recently published, in which Mr, Grant, and Mr. Gran t's poverty are not made- the theme of long dissertations, by the ribald writer who regardless of " his cloth'" caters to íhejVdepraved taste "bf the "parvenus" whose bread'-ho eats, indifferently whether they were born on the right, or the "wrong side of the blanket," so long as they patronize the FAT BOY and his -Reverend Coadjutor 1-those "who live iu glass houses should not throw stones," and if our FAT FIUEND would look back to the time that HE resided at Newcastle, he would find.that tho quotation is strictly applicable-and yet after all what creates the venomous bile of the pseudo aristocracy of the Herald ? their sarcasms on Hyde Park Barracks-their magnanimity in NOT support- ing a place humor (query) and their liberality (bah !)

HOUGH AND HADDIGADDY. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 15 November 1845

HOUGH AND HADDIGADDY. Those pugilistic heroes have at last ad- justed the differences that existed between them, without adopting the silly and dis- agreeable alternative of arranging them through the mediation of law and lawyers. Arbitrato rs wereappoin ted byeachparty.who having examine into the cause of dispute, recommended Hough's friends to give Had digaddy£5 to pay his law expenses. This advice was immediately agreed to, and the £5 having been ha rifted over to Iladdigaddy, and the stakes placed in the hands of a res- pectable* stakeholder, it was resolved that the-'fight should¿^come off" ). as originally contemplated. The'Cdayjon wliich.it is to take place is not yet harried, but^yili'most likely, before our next issue.
