To the Editor,of Bell's Life, in Sydney. jrR. EDi.Ton,-I was in groat hopes that I should bavo had the pleasure of sending you notice : of a Rifle Match to come olT at Dalmain on Tuesday next, between two mouthers of; the Sydney against two Of the Balmain club. The ' challenge was given by a member of the latter to the Secretary of the former, which was that the Balmain Club should find two of their members to shoot against two of their own at 100''yards; the challenge was !accepted-the m'dhoy paid by the member who gave thc challenge' -and it was arranged to come off as above. Tb those sportsmen who are fond of Rifle practice, the mero mention of such a match would cause a 'sensation. A match betweon two picked men of a brack Bifle Club', agaiust two^ picked wen of a yoting one, hardly yot organized; :would have made nbt'a little stir. Several geuts. having heard of tho match coming off, have mudoarrangements to be there on that'day, as it was pretty generally known, that oho of 'b...

To thc Editor of Bells Life in Sydney. Sin,-Permit me, through tito medium of yotir widcly-oirculatudV and sporting journal- to contra' diet the falso assertions promulgated by Mr. CM. Doyle, junior, owner of tue raoe-horse ','Wait a-^ Wliile," in putting- forth to tho publie that ho has paid all and every expense attending the unfortu- nate accident which befel ruo whilst riding that horse at'tho last Maitland Haces, when I had one thigh broken and the other severely injured; It is true Mr, Doylo employed ino to fide*for him, for which purposo I travelled from Windsor to Mait- land, .'Tis .nlso truo that Mr. Doylo "engaged' a servant to attend on mc during my affliction ;' but 'tis false that he ever paid him ; this I was eventually compelled to do before leaving Maitland. I do not assert, nor do I claim as. a right, that Mr, U. was bound to pay ail expenses, although injured iu his service ; but why endeavour to strip tho charitable laurels from the brows of those rcolly-Christiau...
HOUGH AND HADBTGADDY. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 22 November 1845
HOUGH AND HADBTGADDY; This affair is again off ; the backers of Harrigan having failed to come up to; the , scratch on Monday evening last.« Hough's party appeared un willing-to accept a forfeit, and consequently, kept the stakes open till Wednesday, when no one coming forward on the part of the other 'man, the stake- holderdeclared, and paid over. Whát^our friends in England, in the interior, cir in the other districts of the colony will think of the fínate to this anticipated display, we are unable to determine. The"rextraordinary circumstances connected with it from be- ginning to end, are of a nature to mystify [ ordinary powers. We WhT notice the an I ticipateu fight in bur next.0 - i

Ther are no qualities, next to good sense, mor commendable in a man, whether in hi public or private capacity, than good taste and consistency-, of principle and. action Devoid of thosé virtues, a man is ver] distantly removed indeed from being a res; pectable character. I have been for'somi time past a close and inquisitive ob- server of your public-your civic career and while I have noticed many things con- nected with it, to approve of ; I have alsc discovered many faults and failings in it arising chiefly, from a want of temper and good taste, and not unfrequently from a glaring incompatibility > of conduct with principle.

THE DUTY-FULL LAMB. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 22 November 1845
THE DUTY-FULL LAMB. . THE sagacious Lord Melbourne was for many years regarded as the finest nosed animal in the. home territory of our most gracious Sovereign. The appendage which excited such unbounded admiration did not externally exhibit any ol' the canine perfections of the Fox Hound required by Nimrod ; no remarkable elongation tended to denote the remarkable length of its sensibility-nor did any angular develop- ment indicate the surpassing acuteness of the organ. Still, the noble and petted Lamb with a punctuality, more curious than cre- ditable, continued to smell his way to favoritism and full-bellyi*m. Nothing in the shape"of feeding, either at Windsor or Buckingham Palace;; wa3 allowed to pass unnoticed, till his assiduity'to the cuisine department became the table talk of the Empire, and the Prime Minister of Queen Victoria was at length reluctantly compelled to hire a cook and dine at home. Whe- ther the same weapon seduced the gay Viscount to the committal of another ...

%¿> '»..?. COACHING*..', j A .VIOLKNT opposition is, we understand, in ; embryo, in order to drive the new contractors from the road. The people who for some years past have been successful ia their efforts to obtain the encouragement of government, seem to fancy that they should bold a vested interest in the mail fund ; but whether the public also are of that opinion remains to be proved by the encouragement given to the spirited oppositionists. For bur part, we look upon competition as the leading string to im- provement, whether it be exhibited on the. road, the turf, or in the inore¡ precise depart- ments of mercantile negotiation.

He is forming schemes for the next day, planning thc various routes for his lordship's parties, mustering his force before his mind's eye, assigning to each mau under his command his several station, calcu- lating thc time that each man must be out studying thc wiud and the weather, and musing on other matters connected with tho duties of his ' high calling,' which now assume nu importance ridiculous at all other times.

? :;. ?..?;:/,.;.,WINDSOR. .". , WHEN .GREEK MEETS GREEK, THEN COMES [ Jí- i r-> ?? i .TIIE .TUG OF WAR. OUR sporting townsmen, Messrs. Seymour 'and Hudson, well-known oppositionists, who were never known to be defeated or run off-have been fortunate in obtaining the Mails to and from Sydney to Bathurst and Windsor. Mr. Seymour leaves in the course of a few days for Penrith, in which locality he intends establishing a general Restaurent or Codee Shop, in order that passengers by his Mail may refresh and travel at thc least possible expense. At this establishment the Gourmand and Epi- cure can alike be accommodated with every luxury the season and climate can alford. We have seen a sample of the Rosinantcs selected for this line of road, and pronounce them a first-rate stud.
THE GENTLEMAN JOCKEY. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 22 November 1845
THE GENTLEMAN JOCKEY. . 7.'^/BY. CASTOR "A perfect gentleman from top to toe."-Dow JUAX. It is no easy matter, as times go, to de- fine a gentleman ; or, coming to particulars, to say who is, or who is not entitled to such an appellation : nearly every calling has a specimen of the kind. Among the most common of these are the professional, the commercial, and that somewhat doubt- ful character, the gentleman at large. Your motto, Mr. Editor, asks "What is a gen- tleman without his recreations?" Ay, what indeed? And it is with the gentleman in connection with one of these many recrea- tions that I now purpose to offer a few re- marks. If ¡rv general there 'isran acknowledged difficulty in designating a'gentleman, I fear, we shall'find a much greater one when at- tempting a description of that rather ano- malous character, the gentleman jockey a title which we daily see claimed by the lowest as. well as the highest in the land. Withinkhe last fewyears improvements have been attempted,...
EXTRAORDINARY MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 22 November 1845
EXTRAORDINARY MEETING. Taking ' advantage ; of the holidays, it seems, the young gentlemen-who, at such seasons, almost push us from the pavement, as.well as from our stools-seized the op- portunity of their being congregated in Lon- don, to call together a meeting on scholastic business of considerable interest to their body at large. At the appointed hour Free- masons Hall was tolerably crowded with boys from the age of eight upward to sprou- ting adolescence. After some discussion, the senior representative of Eton was called to the chair ; and he briefly stated the subject which had brought them together to be, the right of schoolboys to elect their masters, and adopt such other measures as might be found requisite in consequence of and connexion with that constitutional change. The debate was opened by the Rep. of Westminster, who observed that, since reform, was carried into every other division or branch of society, it was impossible not to see that it was abso- lutely demand...
