BATHURST. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 13 December 1845
j BATHURST. PuoSACtTV.-On taklug our occasional stroll through tho Town on "Monday tho 8th instant, about sundown, we rather by chance dropped across a bit of real sport, in a regular set-to nearly opposite the Royal Viotoria Inn, between' a little fellow called Michie about 0 feet 3 inches, and perhaps some 8 stone, and a long'fellow at least 5 feet 10, and nothing under 10 or eleven stone. We could not get at the origin of the row, but at all events wit- nessed the sport ; at the settiug-to, it was pretty evident the little one was all pluck, be pitched into the long-one a bread basket and nearly knocked tho " Timi" ont of him, and by some manoeuvre reached the " konck" of the long one and set the claret flying, which soon brought nearly six feet of long useless stuff to the ground, tho little one upper- most; it.vaa werry evident from the first, the odds were all Lombard-street to a China orange in favor of little Mickey. Round the 2nd-the little one jumped round the loug one lik...

Country News. &nbsp; &nbsp; PICTON. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; POLICE OFFICE, MONDAY, DEC. 8. Before J. Wild, and W. MacAlister, Es- &nbsp; quires, J. Ps. HAYES V. CHALKER. The Stalwart Brother of the doughty champion NED, appeared on the floor of the court, to answer the following charge (Hov ! miserabile dictu !) on suspicion of having a stolen calf in his bosséssion. Oh. 'twas a sight to see, the perfect non cha lance,, with which the Giant Jack, eyed the Lilliputs around, boldly stood he forth, proud: in conscious'innocence, now smiling blandly at the bench; now casting wither- ing :.> glances at his .pigmy persecutors. Í Hayes .trumped up a cock-and-bull story about a calf that belonged to his brother, whose mother belonged to his father, and which he would swear to as having been found oin Ghalker's run, and detained ille- gally. Chalker conducted his own,defence with : great ability ; he argued, that every one knew.it was next to i...

MAITLAND. It is intended to Inj the foundation stone of thc Maitlund Hospital on the 20th January next, the Anniversary of the foundation of the Colony, which being a general holiday will no doubt attract num- bers. It is also in contemplation to get up a Begattn on a small scale on the same occasion. A case was tried to day before the Bench at the Police O (Ti ce, on an information ii led by the Chief Constable agninst Charles Saunders Pitt, charging him with selling 3 gnllons of rum, being tho first, " and I hopo the last," under the New Distillation Act, he not having the fear of the said Chief Con- stable and the said " Act" before his eyes, did vend the same without first registering himself as a vendor of spirits, and which subjected him to afine of £100, for 10 days at £10 per day, but it being proved in evidence that he had sold 2 gallons and 1 pint, and not thc exact amount mentioned in the information, the sume was quashed.

THE LATE MR. CHARLES SMITH. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 20 December 1845
THE LATE MR. CHARLES SMITH. THE near approach of the festive season, so dear to Englishmen with its accompany- ing sports and amusements, in whatever quarter of the globe they may be located, remind us forcibly of the loss sustained, by the TURF, the SOCIAL BOARD, and society in general, since this time last year, in the death of the above lamented gentleman. It has been said, and truly, " that money like manure is of no use 'till it's spread," and he verified the adage-possessed of ex- tensive property, acquired through the per- severing industry of himself and his amia- ble widow, his munificence was boundless, nor did he lose sight of the Aborigines, the neglected children of the soil; On last Christmas day, immediately before the sudden illness which terminated in his death, he entertained upwards of forty of them, male and female, to a plentiful dinner of roast beef and plum pudding, together with a liberal supply of ale, and his wonted good humour had full scope in the plea- s...

DIFFERENCE OF VALUATION. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 20 December 1845
DIFFERENCE OF VALUATION. Mr. HeyUon'a case hinged upon tue value of a gold ring, which was said to have cost £2 I2s. 6d. Titree witnesses were ex- amined as to its intrinsic value. Mr. E. D. Cohen, of the City Hall of Arts, who stated he was a goldsmith and jeweller, valued it at 5s. or 6s -the gold was colored, and the ring was set with six half pearls, that were only fit for jobbing. Mr. Forrester, who said he was a watchmaker, and not a working jeweller, (although, by the by, he has an afficia in his window, stating that he repairs jewellery) looked at the ring, observed that jewellery was of little value now, as there were no pur- chasers; but he would give 20s. for the ring ; was as good a judge of such articles as any man in the colony, although a working jeweller might be a better; the gold was of genuine quality ; but did not like to say positively unless he could try it with aqua fortis ; there were six entire real pearls ; could not say with certainty whether they were ent...
SPECIAL BAILIFFS! [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 20 December 1845
SPECIAL BAILIFFS! 1 IN a late publication wc hail to «leal with sonic of thc " night auction fraternity ¡" we now rome to trent of a set of worthless scoundrels with which this good eily is infested, the self-styled " Special Uuiliffs," and never were the poor of any country subjected to the privation*., thu heart rending misery to which thc housekeepers in humble life aro reduced liy these vampires, in fact in some instances goaded on to madness by their heartless exactions ; neither are the landlords who employ them scatheless in these crusades. No doubt every mau hus a right to secure his properly, and obtaiu his rents, the man who would wilfully neglect either or.e or the other, would be acling.nnwise towards himself and his family ; but let these runts be obtained by honorable means, and not by slipping loose a set of fiends, to swamp by their exactions thc proceeds of the miserable effects on which an execution may bo levied. We will suppose a case (mid wc have known several) ...
NORTH RICHMOND RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 20 December 1845
In consequence of tho very bad stale-of tho weather during the last week, the Stewards of the above races have been compelled to postpone them uutil Tuesday, tho 13th day of January next. Thc spot selected as the now race course is indeed n very desirable one ; but being BO thickly covered with bush or underwood which require grubbing out, whereby thc turf is disturbed, the late heavy fall of raiu would render the stump-holes very dangerous, j We therefore give the stewards great credit for their ! discretion, as life and limb would bo endangered under such circumstances.
DEPOSITIONS BEFORE MAGISTRATES. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 20 December 1845
DEPOSITIONS BEFORE MAGISTRATES. SCARCELY, if ever, a Criminal Sessions passes that the Judges do not complain of the manner in which the Clerks of the Bench in various parts of the Colony take down the depositions of witnesses. It is of con- stant occurrence that a prisoner on his trial asks a witness if he had not sworn 50 and so at the.police office; the deposition is necessarily , produced, and although the witness recollects having said precisely what tlie prisoner asked, yet not a word of it appears on the deposition ; thc clerk, either from negligence or ignorance, having omit- ted to insert what might have been" a ne- cessary piece of evidence. When we reflect that it is on the depositions alone that the Attorney-General who, in this Colony, acts as Grand Jury, finds a true Bill against a person in custody ; it becomes the duty of Magistrates to see that the Clerks do in fact take down the substance of the evidence, and not mangle, mutilate, and, in some cases, change the com...

MAITLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 20 December 1845
MAITLAND. Sin,-I beg to call your attention to the glaring injustice, I, in common with 'many others, have received at the hands of the Government in conse- quence of tho passing of tho Distillation Bill. The facts of the case though simple, you mnst allow, press very hard upon those concerned, and are as follow : Last Jnly I paid to the Colonial Treasurer £30 for a license to retail spirits, wines, and fermented liquors for twelve mouths from that date, upon the understanding I might brew my own malt liquors, there not being any law in force to prevent my so doing, and now the Legislature has thought fit to deprive rao ot the right of doing that which tho government specially contracted I should do. The consequence to me is ruinous ; for in these pre- carious times the little profit arising from the keep- ing an Inn will be swallowed up by either having to buy from th« Brewer or to erect my Brewery at a distance from home at an increase of expenditure and of loss to myself. At the ...
GOULBURN RACE MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 20 December 1845
» GOULBURN RACE MEETING. A meeting of the public of Goulburn was called bj thc ^announcement to take placo at the Saluta- tion Inn, at 8 o'clock, P. M., on Monday the 1Mb, to fix the prizes and decide on other matters relative to tho ensuing races. Shortly nfter the hour above-mentioned, wc were glad to find a numerous and highly respectable body of our fellow-townsmen assembled nt the ren- dezvous. " The business of the evening was com- menced by Mr. Mayne being called to the" chair. The chairman said, that it would bo recollected by all gentlemen present, that a meeting held at Mr. Maudelsou's some time back, it was proposed that a committee Bhould be selected to carry into effect all names relative td thc proposed Goulburn Races; but it was since found that as the number of the committee was limited, and that business and other ' casualties bfteu prescntod their attendance, it would be better to take tho voice of a public'meeting, which, he would now do, by proposing that the fol...
THE DEPUTY GOVERNOR OF WOOLLOOMOOLLOO AND SHARP THE BARBER. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 20 December 1845
THE DEPUTYGOVERNOROFWOQL. LOOMOOLLOO AND SHARP THE BARBER. F HOM reports circulated by one portion of the press,' rumours of an injurious nature have of late been rife relative to an alleged secret transaction between the notorious Barber and Mr. Hibbes, during the period of Sharp's incarceration in the above gaol, for stealing a ring. Circumstances having brought the particulars of this transaction within our reach, we hasten to remove the odium which has most unjustly and ma- liciously been heaped upon a respectable man, and one who has uniformly proved himself a zealous supporter of the regula- tions laid down by the authorities in all matters connected with his office. Hibbes is accused, in the quarter alluded to, as having " secretly purchased a chain from Sharp, then a confine in the establishment, under circumstances which lead to suppose a guilty knowledge." On thejcontrary, the facts are plainly these :-Some months sub- sequent to Sharp's discharge from gaol, Mr. Hibbes fel...
