PRÉSENT FRXÍÍTH^EMPEROR OF RUSSIA TO PRINCE ALBERT.1 His Imperial Majestj^the Emperor of. Russia has just'fôr-wàrdéd to this country, for,présentation to the Prince Consort, a most^magniiiceiit gift, consisting of three Russian carriages and four superb horses of the purest OrlofT breed.

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

I To ike Editor of liefls Life in Sydney. MR. EDITOR,-I enclose you the proceedings of a oase that came off at the Peurith Police Offlee, ou Tuesday last, the 4th instant, in which the de fendant was committed to take his trial for receiving stolen property. I thiuk you will agree with me that the committing magistrate assumed a power he did not possess in issuing the warrant at all, under the circumstances, and, in still a greater measure, by the committal of the person to gaol, where he was kept for five days, without bail even being allowed, although on the Attorney-General reviewing the proceedings he directed his immediate dis- charge. Police Office, Penrith, Tuesday, 4tb November, 1845. Present-R.C. Dalhunty, Esq., J.P. James McMauus, a free man, resident householder of Pen- rith, was placed in the dock, having been appre- hended under the presiding magistrate's, warrant ; what that warrant set forth your correspondent can- not say, as it was not read or produced on the oc- ca...

Mr. Alderman. Allen, fifteen having voted for Mr. Macdermott and eleven for Mr. Allen.

SUPPLY OF LABOR FOR THE CROAKERS. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 15 November 1845

SUPPLY^ OF LABOR FOR THE CROAKERS. .. IT will be quite refreshing for the sup- ! porters of the Herald, the continuous sup- ply of labor with which we will now be inundated, the consequence of its daily outcry of bur deficiency and the inevitable ruin of the colony, from a paucity thereof not. only the quantity but the quality of the material will be gratifying to our con- temporary. But has he not brought a hornet's nesfäbout his ears ? Now that he has drawn the scum of the British prisons to our shores, after going through.a tem- porary filtering in Van Diemen*s Laud, he may feel justly proud of his moral predica- ment-the Herald reminds us of tho Irish drummer, who, whether he struck high pr low, could not please his countryman when the British Government in compli- ance with the urgent solicitations-the continual outcry for labour-sent out a superabundance of emigrants, the only thing they were found to be deficient in by our colonial mentor, was a deficiency in their attachment...

No. II. MY FIRST POINTER, AND SOME OF HIS CONTEMPORARIES. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 15 November 1845

No. II. MY FIRST POINTER, AND SOME OF HIS CONTEMPORARIES . I declare solemnly that I think one of the most unalloyed of mundane pleasures is the coming into possession of One's first pointer. It is a pleasure in fruition, yet supercharged, at the same time, with pleasures in prospect; so that, unlike most other gratifications, enjoyment doe3 not bring to it extinction. Well do I remember the receipt of my first pointer-a puppy just weaned from its mother. I was in the heydey of youth, and there was the promise attached to the suckling that so soon as I had broken him in thoroughly I was to have my first game certificate--was to be enrolled among the legitimates ; "-Joy was with tile gift, Yet'twas a herald joy, telling of others coming." If it were of importance I could describe the very basket in which the pup was con- veyed to me, then a denizen in " my father's hall's ;" but that may be left to slumber in my own memory, and I will make my commencement of these Reminiscences"! of ...

REMINISCENCES OF A WEEK AT OXFORD. No. I. (Concluded.) [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 15 November 1845

. REMINISCENCES OF A .WEEK AT OXFORD. ' No. I. "tV. {: BY A'VOYAGER/ -Í W (Concluded:)} My last extract from the "Week at Ox- ford" of my Amicus Cantabriyiensis con- cluded with his description of the truly rich establishment of an agricultural club-rich in satire and absurdity. Pursuing, his nar- rative, my friend's MS. thus proceeds. " Ä hasty but substantial breakfast at li's rooms was soon dispatched, and shortly after niue we started for Biceste. The meet, though somewhat less numerous than those I have before spoken of, owing in a great measure to the increased distance from Oxford, was nevertheless well at- tended ; and there was buta brief delay be- fore we trotted off to the cove, and where it was socm apparent that a fox was on foot. In about twenty minutes the welcome tally- ho was heard, and we got away at a slap- ping pace. .

EPSOM RACES. (Concluded.) [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 15 November 1845

EPSOM RACES. (Concluded.) Settling-day at Tattersalls, after tlie Derby, is always a day of great importance. It takes place on the Tuesday after the races. ' The room is crowded with sporting characters of all descriptions. ;>With what opposite feelings,-in what different moods of mind do the parties meet! The entire1 assemblage-and a motley-looking assem- blage it is in more respects than one-may be ranged into two classes ; those who have won, and those who have lost. A physiognomist, of very ordinary skill in the art, might easily enough tell to which of the two classes almost every individual before him belongs. When a party who has lost does not appear at Tattersalls on settling-day to discharge his obligations, he is spoken of as one who does not ' show.' If he takes flight to the continent or some other place, he is called a Levanter. ¡ The same term is made use of on the Stock Exchange to ,characterise;those who are unable or unwilling to pay .the amount 'of their losses...

JOCKIES. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 22 November 1845

JOCKIES. Let us suppose our Jockey at the starting Eost. Having1 inspected the saddling of his ofse and found everything secure, he is chucked up into.his seat by the help of one Jeg by his trainer, who wishes him good luck. After he has seated' himself firmly down in it, and tried the: length of his stirrup-leather, he. takes his ' ' up gallop,' as it is called, of perhaps half a mile, his trainer generally accompanying him on his hack ; and he then walks quietly back to the starting-post. But his method of start- ing his horse for the race depends on cir- cumstances. If for only half a mile (i. e. .the two-year old course), in which a good start is a great advantage, he catches fast hold of his horse's head ; and, if he will not start without, sticks , both spurs into his sides aa soon as the word 'Go!' is given, taking the chance of getting his head down into its place when'and how he may. If for longer distances, he heed not be in such a hurry at starting, providing always that ...
