THE MAGISTRACY AND THE "LEARNED ADVOCATES." [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 13 December 1845

TUE MAGISTRACY AND THE " LEARNED ADVOCATES." Sösts few weeks back we hail the disagreeable duty of remarking, on the want of atten'ion ou the part of the Sydney magistrates, by which the time of snitors nt the police ofiice was frittered away, through tho absence of justices on the bench, and thc sub sequent remanding of cases, from day to day,of the most trivial nature. We have now tho pleasure of stating, that such inattention is completely done away with, nnd that from the early hour of nine in tho morning the bench Ima not been vacated latterly, nntil the whole of the cases on the list have been disposed of. This is ns it should be, and while we' will not be found wantiug in repudiating the negli- gence of which we had to complain, we trust that we will never be found wanting itt candour to acknowledge any improvement which may tend to further tho ends of justice. The.esparte mininer in which cases for assumed threatening language were disposed of, hus also undergone n satisfact...

BRUMMELLIANA. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 13 December 1845

BRUMME LUANA. I A great deal used to bo said of Beau Nash and j his. witticisms ; hut certainly wo never met with ' any thing of Iiis which was at all equal to thc oracular sentences' of tito gentleman who gives a name lo this article. Of all tho beaux that ever flourished-at least, bf all that over flourished on tho same score- exemplary of waistcoat, and having authoritative boots from which there was no appeal-ho appears to us to havo been the only one who made a proper and perfect uuion of the coxcombical and ingenious.

HIGH RATES OF POSTAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 13 December 1845

HIGH BATES OF POSTAGE. IT is a matter of general complaint, the high rates of Postage that obtain in this colony; and to which we will draw the attoution of tho authorities. In thc Mother Country the Postage throughout tho United Kingdom is reduced to one penny for each letter, not exceeding half au ounce in weight ; and although wo havo no desire that thc Postago in Now South Wales should be reduced so low, from an impression tuât we are not possessed of sufficient facilities for transit, to warraut such reduction, yet we would wish to he informed how it is, that in this more favored colony (as it is called) there is the same rate of Postago charged for a letter, from Sydney to. Parramatta, and visa versa, as tlioro is from Hobart Town to Launceston, the distance between the latter towns being 120 miles ; whereas, that of tho former is only FIFTEEN ! And further, that taite a post town, distant from Sydney in this colony, the same number of miles that Launceston is from Hobart Town...

GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 13 December 1845

-' GOULBURN'.. But little hus occurred worthy of remark since our last notice of intelligence. As a calm precedes a storm, so, we suppose, we must account for a general flatness in business and other pursuits as a fore-rnuner lo the bustle and mirth of Christmas, at which period, we may anticipate some sport, for certain worthies amongst us, who deem that a season so long set apart for joy and pleasure should bc celebrated in as good a manner as circumstances will permit, have determined on an aquatic feat. Four men, " good and true," are open, we under- stand, to pull any four against time in the County of Argyle ; the names of two are well known to the Sydney " water gods." This match will, we believe, come off on boxing-day. Some cocking may also be anticipated at the same lime ; from a specimen of the binls we have seen, we pronounce them " game ones." The committee of management for the Goulburn Races hare not yet made public the fruits of their determinations ; but when they d...

REMARKS. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 13 December 1845

Any cominant/üpon the character of this* fight would b¿.almost supeifluous. It was one of those displays in which the nicities of science were totally disregarded, and the necessity of training ajmost over-looked-? though for our part, we'esteem it nearly as criminal for a man to enter thc lists with- out having paid attention to his condition as it would be if he sold his chance of victory. Neither of the men were up to the mark in point of condition, still as there was no lack of courage we hope that the losing man will not loose caste,in'the esti- mation of his friends. The fight lasted 26 minutes. Immediately after the fight, Hough challenged any man in the country for £200 aside-barring neither country nor color.

William Sporkes hereby challenges Haddigaddy to fight him c fair upstanding fight, in a 24 ft. roped ring, for any sum his friends and supporters may fae inclined and able to raise ; the more the amount, the more agreeable ; and in order to make everything agreeable and conclusive, Sparkes is ready at any time to go to work, and Haddigaddy has only to name the time and placo of the first de- posit, should his friends hove pluck euaugh to come to the scratch.

Varieties, [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 13 December 1845

Varletlfes, Horse Boxes.-On Saturday week Mr. Potts, of Chester, sent a valuable horse by railway in charge of his groom. When they had proceeded a short way on the Chester and Crewe line, the horse became uneasy, and the groom left his second carriage, and placed himself in the box in order to keep his charge quiet ; but it be- came furious, foaming at the mouth, and, getting its feet fast in the manger, fell upon the groom, who was considerably hurt by the unruly beast. The man, when about Basford, on his way to the south, called out, lustily, "Mnrder, murder!"and at length, making himself heard, was ex- tricated from his mad charge. The horse has sustained so much injury that he had to be disposed of for £35, much below his value. The second mad animal in a horse box that is to be recorded was, we are given to understand, placed in this vehicle one day' last week. A number of gents were drinking deep at the Albion; near Clottér, and one fell gloriously into that state which manif...

LOVE'S PROGRESS OF A TOBACCONIST. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 13 December 1845

LOVE'S PROGRESS OP A TOBACCONIST, ' When bless'd witt» Fanny's rosy smiles, I thought myself in heaven ; Fanny is blooming twenty-two, And I am-thirty-seven. I thought her deck'd with every grace, Without one vice to jar, Fresh as new carrot was her face, And sweet as Macabar. Besides a person fair to view She had a thousand pounds ; Not to be sneezed at-I had two, And credit without bounds. Our courtship oft consisted in , Slight taps and gentle knocks ; And when I gave ber a small pinch, She quick return'd a box. Howe'er, one morning, in a rage, ? With me herself she put, Sim coll'd me blackguard, and declor'd I was from thence short cut. .. In vain I tried the cause to smoke, When she had ta'en offence ; In vain recall'd tho words I spoke, That she bad deem'd bad scents. But soon a mutual friend contriv'd Our quarrel up to botch ; Fanny confess'd her temper warm 'Twas natural-she was scotch. Wo married-snugly in my shop Fanny's become a fixture, And all tho neighbourhood declare,...

TO THE CORPORATION OF SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 13 December 1845

TO THE CORPORATION OF SYDNEY. You have now been some years in existence as a body corporate, and are deeply im- : pressed, as a matter pf course, with the notion-for such is vanity, it gives us in- flated ideas both of our powers and achieve- ments-that you have done wonders for thia our flourishing and extending city. The love of power rules with more or less vigour in the breast of every man. From the hewer of wood and the drawer of water, whose daily bread is earned by the toil of his limbs, and the sweat of his brow, to the monarch who luxuriates in purple and gold on his throne, too frequently wishing for some newly invented pleasure to stimulate his nearly exhausted and satiated appetites ; the love of power exercises under, different phases, its congenial swaj. It would, there- fore, be presuming Aldermen and City Councillors to be more or less than mortals to suppose them devoid of this ruling and cherished passion. And, indeed, from any experience I may have gleaned of muni...
