GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 December 1845

GOULBURN. ' The Goulburn races oro appointed lo commence on the 24th of February, and a committee are now assembling to arrange all other matters connected therewith; we would suggest to these gentlemen that a ball and dinner, held to commemorate our turf meeting, would not be inappropriate. Several ladies of, our acquaintance have favored us with their opinions on the matter, and tiley deem that these gentlemen will be wanting in'that courtesy which should always distinguish such a body, if they neglect this opportunity of affording to our fair ones the delights of a dance. For ourselves, we must add, fond as we are of a HACE we hold as great a veneration for a HACY diuner : indeed, we think two such good things ought to be " like Juno's swans, insep'rublo." We are : given to understand that at thc time of the races it,is proba- ble that a match at pigeon-shooting may come off. We wonder that we have not a club ; such & thing only wants projecting to be well aml.liruily sup...

Pedestrianism. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 December 1845

J VcdeatrlMlaoi. I . - -O- ? \_ On Monday last , William Spat ks, the well known competitor of Bill Davis, Corduroy, and many others, " had a running" match with THE DOCTOR, and though the professional worthy is said to have made use of every effort that human ingenuity could devise, he failed in effecting a cure that is, if curing, consists in pickling, the patient ;. since from the following gathering it must appear that Galen (who by a strange metamorphosis has been transformed into a Jarvey,) was salted. But a truce'to jocularity. The weather on the day in question was excessively oppressive and potations merely served temporarily to" abate the gulping thirst which prevailed. A strong muster took place at old Tom Weedon's about U.a.m., from which time till past noon we waited impatiently, anxious to see the chosen spot, but the fatigue party had not yet returned. Every effort was unsuccessfully made to obtain a clear 150 yards in the vicinity of the Cherry J Gardens, and at leng...

Trotting Match. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 December 1845

Trotting ZVXatoh. ON Wednesday morning, as had been pre- viously arranged, Hancock's brown gelding and Daley's chestnut met at the Parramatta Turnpike Gate, again to struggle for the honors of the road. Very few people were present besides those directly interested.; Shortly after 8, a.m., Mr. T. Wall, in Daley's gig, and Mr. a'Hern, in Hancock's, got away, and kept the game up at a good bat till they reached Duck River Bridge, where Hancock's horse broke, and was turned. Both again kept steadily at work, the little brow i gradually creeping 'ahead. Opposite ! the Governor Gipps Arras ii violent effort on.< the part of Wall tutelóse .upon lhoj leading horse, caused both to break, though neither of the drivers took notice of the affair, and a'Hern again went in a winner, by about half a length ; distance, 5 miles ; time, 16 minutes '' and a half. .. \ ;"?. ,''' .:^f':

The Dandy Horse Match. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 December 1845

Tbe Dandy scorse "Match. MONDAY next; Js.the day appointed for this long talked .of and singular exploit. Our readers may ^remember that a wager of £50 to £20 was made that a Mr.-- could not, within one month, find any person to ride the ordinary two-wheeled velocipede one standard mile, during which transit the rider was not to allow either foot or hand to. touch the ground. It was purposed to make the last deposit at. Parramatta, but at the request of several Sydneyiles, the parties interested have resolved to run as near the metropolis as possible ; and the Woolpack, opposite Peter- sham, has been ;m'med as the place of rendezvous. The final 'sum will consequently be made good at the above Inn, at ll o'clock in the. forenoon, when the ground will be named and the effort made for the accom- plishment of this novel, and, ks far as we can learn, unexampled feat.. The betting can with difficulty be quoted, as persons are offering 5, 6, and 10 to 1, against its being accomplished. . ....

" A REMTNTSnTCNfiTC. \ To the Editor nf lieU's T.ife .tn S!tt/Jnri/ ? - - y y ^.Vy.,njr Sir,-There ore some who contend that the recol- lections of of thc past axe always attended by a sort of gloomy reverie, and; that tho reaction of ennui which invariably follows a retrospective indulgence, neutralizes the effect of those beautifully arranged images whick memory may disclose. Few, I dare say, will assent to this sort of reasoning, and that 'mind must be gloomy indeed, and his heart callous if the reminiscences of the noontide of our youth be fraught with images otherwise than pleasing. What is there more soothing to the mind than renewing, in imagination, the youthful pastamos of thc spring- tide of. our existence, when, in breathless anxiety, we have wearied, ourselves after, the painted butter- fly, or in scaling the beetling cliff to rob tho moss built tenements of their young. Such images has memory in store for us, and though the bustle of life, and the cares and anxieties of...

To the Editor of Bells Life in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 December 1845

To thc Editor of Bells Life in Sydney. SIB,-With reference to a letter which appeared in your valuable aud independent- journal of the 20th . ultimo, signed " Bonaface," ia which the writer calls the attention of tho public to an address or sermon delivered by his Grace Archbishop Folding, taxing the Hight liev. Freíate of haviug made use of language tending to cast a stigma upon the clioractnr of innkeepers and publicans generally, by designating their licensed houses " hot-beds of vice, and dens of infamy." I have good reason to believe Mr. Boniface, who, by the by, is u learned lecturer in tho " free and easy way," merely writes for writing sake, and not being ablo to find a better subject for his pen, must needs attaok somo one. However, ho appears to be about as prolific in the misconstruction of good English, when delivered by men of learning and oratorical ability, ns he is in thc awful mutilation of Dr. Johnson, while lecturing his brethren of the free and easy club, otherwi...

I THE ANNIVERSARY REGATTA; WE beg to remind boat owners and others' interested in the Annual Aquatic Sports, that " Time is short, Art is long"and to pro- ceed with Lindley Murray, " Idleness pro- dúcelo want." Happily the class of patrons io . this exhilirating and truly national sport are of a calibre above the latter product-still, as tempus edax rerum we hope to see the gentlemen who usually set these matters agog, early at their oars, with a determination to pull a long and steady stroke. It is anticipated that there will be great sport at Cook's Iliver on Monday next, as mine host of the Yorkshireman, Cook's Elver, and the Old Sportsman of Limerick, arc matched to race 100 yards in the sand for a fat pig.
