Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 January 1845

notai UntelliQftice. A FARCE IN SEVERAL Acia.-A person who has lately been employed as a low comedian at .the Victoria Theatre, finding it necessary to '* change A tho scene," suddenly resolved upon a visit 'to Hobart Town. His departure would not however have created any further sensation than his absence does regret, had it not boen for a.singular " affair** which gave a notoriety to his last moments. It ap- pears that this sock and buskin adventurer had been employed as a supernumerary, or fag, in some one or other of the minor theatres in London, and had managed " to pick up" a stale phrase or two, by thc ready application of which he was enabled to storm the citadel of on old woman's heart, lead- ing her from her plighted troth and liege lord to an antipodean elopement. " The course of truo lova never did run smooth" as is proved by thc sequel of their guilty intercourse. Perhaps the jealous couple wcro too »RAM-A-TIOK for each other a idea* of propriety-b it to whatever cause ...

îliitiJ Intelligence. CENTRAL CBIMINAL COUET. MONDAY.-This morning being tho first of the criminal sittings' the Chief Justice and Mr. Justice Dickinson took their seats in full judicial costume, precisely at ten o'clock. ROBBS BTKALINO.

Aquatics. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 January 1845

si a « a t ¿ c 0. In onr last, we noticed the intention of the lovers of aquatic sports, to commence immediate arrange- ments for getting up a regatta on tho 27th, in honour of her most gracions Majesty's hirth day. We hove now the pleasing task to perform, of an- nouncing that tho committee of gentlemen to whom the business is confided, have not been " sleeping on their oars." Subscription lists have been already opened, ono of which, we understand, is headed with the Governor's name for ¿610. and many other distinguished and respectable parties have promised to subscribe the several sums placed opposite their respective names. We hope they will not only be as good as their words in paying up their subscriptions, but that they will assist in facilitating and expediting the contemplated ar- rangements for the Begatta, by coming promptly forward with tho sums tiley have promised to subscribe. \\ The French seem resolved to change the system, and adopt thc naval, in place of thc milit...

GREENWICH FAIR. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 January 1845

GREENWICH FAIR. If the parks be the " lungs'of London," we wonder what Greenwich fair is-a perio- dical breaking out, we suppose ; a sort of spring-rash-a three days' fever, which cools the blood for six months afterwards ; and, at the expiration of which, London is restored to its old habits of plodding in- dustry, as suddenly and completely as if nothing had ever happened to disturb them. In our earlier days, we were a con- stant frequenter of Greenwich fair for years. We have proceeded to, and returned from it, in almost every description of vehicle. "We cannot conscientiously deny the charge of having, once made the passage in a spring van, accompanied by thirteen gentlemen, fourteen ladies, an unlimited number of children, and a barrel of beer ; and we have a vague recollection of having in latter days found ourself the eighth outside on the top of a hackney-coach, at something past four o'clock in the morning, with a rather confused idea of our own name, or place of residence....

THE GAME LAWS AND THE GAME OF CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 January 1845

THE GAME LAWS AND THE GAME OF CRICKET. We extract the following paragraph from the Times journal : - "THE GAME OF CRICKET. - Baron Alder- son, a few days since, addressed the follow- ing remarks to the grand jury of the county of Suffolk : - In a neighbouring county which I passed through on the cir- cuit this time, I had what I am afraid I shall not have here - a day of rest ; and I went out into the country, and had the pleasure of seeing a match of cricket, in which a noble earl, the Lord-Lieutenant of his county, was playing with the tradesmen, the labourers, and all around him, and I believe he lost no respect from that course - they loved him better, but they did not respect him less. I believe that if they themselves associated more with the lower classes of society, the kingdom of England would be in a far safer, and society in a far sounder condition. I wish I could put it to the minds of all to think so, because I think it is true.' " This forms a very pretty rural picture...

WINDSOR. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 11 January 1845

WINDSOR. On New Year's Day, a horse race for £25 a-side, came off on the Australian race course, the property of Mr. James Dargan, between Mr.-James Doyle's cele- brated brown pony Soldier by Trumpet, and Mr. Thomas Chasling's chestnut horse Tommy by old Sly Boots; the former is well known in the sporting world as being the winner of innumerable races ; he was defeated in 1840 by the sire of Tommy for £100 a-side, and again on thc 5th August, 1840, by Mr. Earl's brown mare Mumps, for a little sum, being all the defeats he ever experienced. The race was best of heats twice round. Tommy was beaten in both heats ; indeed, it seems quite appa- rent, that he cannot race at all, nor does he appear to have one drop of his sire's blood in him, as old Sly Boots was never known to show the white feather ; it is true, that Tommy was badly ridden, whilst the old Soldier, who is now eighteen years old, was put along by a young Aborigine, in a style not to be excelled by an Osbaldeston or a Lye. ...

THE TURF LAW. [CONTINUED FROM OUR LAST.] [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 18 January 1845

j THÉ TU lt F I. A W, BT CASTOR. j [COXTIXUED »ROM QU« lAST,] It is a fact which cannot he too well re- membered, or consequently too often repeated, that the members of the betting ring, in the first instance, sought for no protection from the Government ; all they required was to be left to act for themselves when, it is true, they laboured under some disadvantages, but still made for their own body which proved effectual, pr at least with which they were content, and which could and were enforced without in any way vio- lating the common law of the land. Just let us suppose, however, that the present inquiry had originated with them and cer- tainly the argument is more frequently put in this form than in any other ; sporting men then, we admit, do desire betting to be made a lawful occupation, as it is natural enough they should, for by it their position would be unquestionably strengthened, and a power conferí ed on them of carrying out their resolutions to the utmost. " Now," s...

DON ROGER. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 18 January 1845

DON ROGER. We are enabled to give our readets a few of the introductory verses to this poem, as a . . sample of its metre more than of its ordinary matter. INTHODUCTIOX. 'Twere ventrous task in these religions days, ' , For nie an nnfledg'd hard to strike the lyre ; Unless with subtle symphony I raise, My strain, in echo to the son'rous choir. Of zealous hypocrites, whose rage dismays More timid songsters, when the enkindled fire Parnassean fumes, their very bowels singeing, But fears to blaze-dreading this water engine. . ? Let critics rare and madden, as they rant; Their spleen is but assumed-a moral garnish, À. gloss compatible with slavish cant Which o'er " the outward man" they daub as . varnish. But, 'tis a mixture much too weak, to daunt My winged steed in his career, or tarnish \ Whate'er of fame I gather from thc Nine Who sit enthroned upon the hill divine. 1 fling no gauntlet, though I do defy The sneering sarcasms of such sapient asses, And on my frisky Pegasus I'll try M...

Since the Creation, the general standard of the'human race has been tho same. bombs'of iigypt, and the tombs of the oldest of the Pyramids, more than three thousand years old, are an average of six feet in length 5 and, from the discovery of the most ancient skeletons, there is every reason to suppose that this was the original standard'pf the race, varying according to climate and circumstances. These variations, however, have formed in nations and individuals strong and striking exceptions to this general rule. We are in- formed, by the Scriptures, that there existed a race pf giants before the Deluge, who fillöÜ the earth with violence and blood. All ancient history and tradition teem with accounts of giants and human monsters, for which stories there must have been some foundation. Skeletons have been found upon thc American Continent in such num- bers as to show that, at some remote and unknown perio...

SI G it at ic». BRISBANE TOWN, MORETON BAY. [FROM OUR COnnESPOVDEST.] A Regatta on New Year's Day was all the go ; and whoever has been np the splendid reaches which so conspicuously mark tho beauties of the river Bris- bane, must be well aware that a better spot could not be selected for aquatic sport3. . Although we cannot as yet boast (thanks to our very liberal government) of our being much of a shipping com- munity, still we found ready hands and willing hearts to pull for the prizes. The first and all engrossing match, was between two whale-boats, pulling five oars each, for which an American built boat, formerly belonging to the ill-fated ship " Thale," and another brought in by the crew of the " Clarence," whaler (built by Day, of Sydney)', were the competitors. The pewter was freely sported oa the colonial boat, steered by a well-known whaler, late of Sydney (Mr. George Beers) ; but long before the termination of the match, the Yuukcc iras found tot» muck foi' tile fuvurile...

PETERSHAM. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 18 January 1845

I PETERSHAM. According to engagement the full amount of stakes, £20 a side was made good at Aiton's on Thursday evening last, and the race between " Tommy" snd the pet oí Castlereagh-street^' Piggy" came off yes- terday. The uncertainty usually attending these matches as to the time of day when they take place led us into a mistake, and we were thereby prevented witnessing the running; from the best information to be gathered, however, the bay poney had it all his own way in beth heats, and this seems to be attributed in a degree to the bad riding of young Clark who had to jockey the roan. The second race was a match for £10 a side as follows : Mr. Shallis ch. g. Rob Roy. 0 2 " T.O.Wusoocsb. g.Rackry (owner).. 1 1 In the first heat the rider of Rob Roy got a terrific burster, shortly after turning the sharp angle we have already complained of, or rather on his way down the hill.

35 x t v a t X */ I -O- jfl V-ENTILATION AXD HOUSEHOLD CLEANLINESS. It may be taken as a wholesome general rule, that whatever produces a disagreeable impression on the sense of smelling is unfavourable to health. That sense was doubtless intended to guard ns against the dangers to which we are liable from vitiation of the atmosphere. If we have, by tba same means a high sense of gratification front other objects, it ought to excite our admiration of the Deity in thus making our senses serve thu double purposes of affording us, pleasure and se- curity; for the latter end might just as effectually have been answered by our being only susceptible of painful impressions. To keep the atmosphere of our houses free from contamination, all matten which can injure its purity must be carefully re- moved. Flowers in water and living plants in pod greatly injure tho purity of the air during the night, by giving out large quantities of an air (carbonic acid) similar to that which is separated f...
