HENRY HOGAN. To the Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 December 1845
HENRY HOGAN. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; To The Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. &nbsp; &nbsp; Sir,-Some, days since I addressed a letter to you respecting the case of Henry Hogan, who had been convicted at the Bathurst Circuit Court in March last, of the murder of his wife, and sentenced to die. When writing that letter I did hope that the unfor- tunate man would have been pardoned and dis- charged; but I have since heard he has actually been forwarded to Van Dieman's Land under a com- muted sentence of transportation for life. As I said in my former letter, the sentence of death had been previously commuted by the Governor to " trans- portation for life with hard labour in irons. No pardon, conditional or otherwise having issued that under a habeas corpus he was brought before the Supreme Court and such commuted sentence was declared by the Judges to be illegal. This de- cision, too was come to after a solemn and rathe...

. TO THE : CITIZENS OF SYDNEY. , You are, of course, dèéply interested in the; detection and suppression of every species of fraud and knavery in your jbity.

A MEDICAL MAN. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 December 1845
;., A MEDICAL MAN, - I IN- our last issue we published a paragraph from the Chronicle, setting forth that a certain medical practitioner of this city had been guilty of the most disgraceful con- duct in refusing to enter the house of a poor woman who was in her confinement at the time, unless he was paid down à certain sum oj' money. We have since taken the trouble of making some enquiries into the case, and are pained to find that the statement of our contemporary is in every, particular correct. A grosser instance, of inhumanity and brutality on the part of a medical mau we never heard of. We happen to know something of the pro- fession, and must say that conduct more disgusting, more barbarous in itself, never came before our notice. This medical gentleman-for we suppose we must adopt the conventional courtesy of styling him a gentleman !-it appears was requested to attend the poor woman, then undergoing dreadful sufferings in her confinement. He proceeded as far as the door of t...

LOCAL MILITIA. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 December 1845
. LOCAL MILITIA. SINCE the days in which that glorious ! corps the 102nd Regiment of the line bid defiance to control, and pulling aside the disguise which hitherto had partially con- cealed the Bandoulier spirit of this body, aye, since the very arrest of Governor Bligh, while vice-regally presiding over these territories no such fractious opposition to the throse has been manifested throughout the vast region of New Holland as was shown in the revolt of the soldiers of the 99th Regiment.on Monday last. The Horse Guards forward certain regu- lations to the Lieutenant General com- manding in this colony, which that officer attempts to put in force, but to which cer- tain choice spirits in this chosen band peremptorily refused compliance. We will &nbsp; not argue upon the expediency of the order issued from the fountain head of Military Law. Reasoning may convince us of the hardship, the positive injustice to the sol- dier implied in these regulations, but such can not pallia...

THE PHYSIOLOGY OF LONDON LIFE, ? ¡TX J. riBHEIt MURKAY, ! AUTHOR OF "THE WORLD OF LONDON." | -- PHYSIOGNOMY OF LONDON. Thea would a splendid city rise to view, With carts and cars, and coaches roaring all : Wide poured abroad, behold the giddy crew : See hoir they dash along from wall to wall, At every door, hark;! - how they thundering call ! CASTLE ot IXDOLEKCE. In the City, as the centre of our wealth, -solid, massy,-so many strong boxes of brick and mortar, rather inhospitable and reserved in their physiognomy, their worst side out, and all that is good and valuable, where there is " no admission except on business," these structures, like the mer- chants who possess them, you know nothing of, unless you have the privilege of the entrée ; so far from making any boast of. their wealth, they seem studious to conceal it. P" Our middle-class tenements in London are, in like manner, plain, blunt, homely, matter-ofifaot representatives of the Smiths, Browns, and Robinsons, who dwell t...
THE GENTLEMAN JOCKEY. (Concluded.) [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 December 1845
THE GENTLEMAN JOCKEY. 1 BY CASTOR. "A perfect gentleman from top to toe."-Doa JOAS* (Concluded.) Goodwood gives us nearly as good a show of gentleman performers as Croxton, and in fact most of those that exhibit'at Good- wood also belong to the other Club. There is here what is called " the Goodwood Club," members of which only are eligible to ride for one or two races, but for the Welter and Anglesea other amateurs are admitted on the following terms : "To be either officers of the army or navy, or members or sons of members of White's, Brookes's, Boodles, the Jockey, Goodwood, Heaton Park, Eglinton Park, or Bibury Clubs." This article is now adopted bj many other meetings, it being supposed that any gentleman who wishes to ride is, or has it in his power to be, a member of. some of these many orders. Some of your thorough racing men, who "go the whole hog," object to amateurs riding at a meeting oi such importance as Goodwood, where some of the best sport of the season takes place...
GOODWOOD RACES. THURSDAY, JULY 31. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 December 1845
GOODWOOD RACES. THURSDAY, JULY 31. ; Important as the racing appears on paper, we are constrained lo admit that in what.has hitherto been recognised to.be the great feature of the meeting-the Cup-it did not reach the standard hitherto accorded it. The entry wes numerically good, and it included a few liorses of considerable repute ; hut the defeat of Alice Hawthorn and Faugh-a-ballagh at Ascot, and the sub- sequent withdrawal of the latter, of Golden Rule, Stomacher (all in one stable), and the Ironmaster, left it to so inferior a class * of competitors, that the public, having '. bled" in support of the seceders, ceased to take any interest in it, and speculation, cxcept"witli a few who were lucky enough to lay against thehorses we have mentioned, was as profitless as it wa; languid. It was fortunate, therefore, that the list had other attractions, and that its general excellence served to compensate for this solitary falling off. It was still more fortunate tor those who attended ...

To the Editor of Bells Life in Sydney. SIR, - Feeling assured that your columns are at all times open to promote any legitimate and manly sport, has induced me to request you will allow the following correspondence which has taken place between the Currency and Australian Cricket Clubs &nbsp; a place in your journal, as some erroneous reports are in circulation among the Cricketers of Sydney respecting it. &nbsp; &nbsp; You will perceive that the Australian Cricket Club, in their hypocritical letter to the Currency of the 24th November, say "that they acted under the &nbsp; impression that the Currency intended to play the Club, and regret they should have considered it necessary to object to any particular member, but in this instance the Currency did not challenge the Australian unconditionally, as will appear from the correspondence, wherein they intimate a desire, to play the "then" members &nbsp; of the "Australian" a match at cricket, in...

MR. THOMAS HYNDES. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 6 December 1845
MR. THOMAS HYNDES. THE above named gentleman did us the favour of paying us a visit in the course of the week, to complain of au inaccuracy in an address to him that appeared in our last issue, signed Scrutator, wherein it is stated that it was rumoured that he (Mr. Hyndes) had "disposed of the bit of ground in &nbsp; Sussex-street as a kind of gift". Such is not the fact. Mr. Hyndes informs us, that he never made a gift of the ground, on the contrary his agent advanced money as a &nbsp; mortgage on it to the tune of £1300. We are much obliged to Mr. Hyndes for point- ing out the inaccuracy, which we have of course much pleasure in correcting.

FIRST PACK OF FOX-HOUNDS. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 13 December 1845
FIRST PACK OF FOX-HOUNDS. . The first real steady pack of fox-hounds established in the western part of England, was by Thomas Fownes, Esq., ofStepleton, in Dorsetshire, about 1730, They were as handsome, and fully as complete in every respect, as any of the most celebrated packs of the present day. The owner was obliged to dispose of. them, and they were sold to. Mr. Bowes, in Yorkshire, the father of the late lady Strathmore, ut an immense price. They were taken into Yorkshire by their own attendants, and, after having been viewed and much admired in their kennel, a day was fixed for making trial pf them in the geld, to meet at - a famous nare-cover near. When the huntsman ' came with his hounds in the morning, he discovered a ? great number of sportsmen, who were riding in the cover, and whipping the furzes as for a hare ; he therefore halted, and informed Mr. Bowes that he was unwilling to throw off his hounds until the gentlemen had re- tired, and ceased the slapping of whips, ...
DEBATE ON THE NAVY. [FROM PUNCH.] [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 13 December 1845
DEBATE ON THE NAVY. . I [i-nou rotten.] Just as the house was about to adjourn, Mr. Macau ley rose and said, that on mov- ing for papers on the state of the navy, he would call the attention of the house to the fleet of steamers now riding in their proud anchorage, near the Surry margin of Thainesis' shore (loud cheers). When in Rome the mariners went forth to sea, wo are told by Cicero that they imbued the prows of their vessels in the blood of bulls, us a sacrifice to Mars; and we know that the Spartan sailors rigged their vessels with the hair of their women, for such in those days was the patriotic ardour that filled the breasts and inflated the hearts of those en- trusted with the defence of their country's liberties (enthusiastic cheering). He (the honorable member) could not look upon the four-penny steamboats without sighs mingled with tears : nor would he re- gret those sighs if he could waft those vessels into dock for proper repairs ; and he would deem those tears well sh...

SENTENCE PRONOUNCED ON JOHN DAY, Jux.; BY TUE STEWARDS OF THE JOCKEY CLUB. V We have examined Into the charge against Mr. Crommelin, of haviug oS'ercd John Day, jun., a* large bribe to procure the defeat of the horje then known as tho Melody colt, iu thc Derby of 18i0. This charge, founded upon a statement made by Mr. Fitwull, thc proprietor bf the horse, by * John" Dayj juu., was supported only by his own evidence, which we find to be utterly unworthy of belief, con- tradicted as it was on many important points by letters in his own handwriting of that date, addressed to Mr. Crommelin, and produced by bira. lt having been necessary, for Mr. Crommelin'* defence, that he should piuco these letters in evi- dence before us, we further fiud from tho contents, that subsequent to this period both John Day, sen., und John Day, jan., had not only continued but iu 1 creased their intimacy with Mr. Crommelin, whom one accused and the other believed capable of snell atrocious villany, and to w...
