PETERSHAM RACES. ACTIVE preparations are making in the right quarter for good sport on each day of the ensuing race meeting-. Unwearied ex- ertions have been made by the gentlemen collecting; and great liberality lias been evinced by the public in contributing the viopusses. Thc booths were sold on the evening of Friday, the 12th December, to the following persons : Mrs. Mary Avery, Afr. Nicholas Dunn, Mr. James Davison, Mr. Thomas Steele, and Mr. George Colcsou. We would again suggest to the stewards the necessity of personally waiting- upon Captain Nicholson, and Mr. Commissioner Miles, for a few, both mounted and foot, Police-we feel satisfied that the usual courtesy of these gentlemen will not be departed from on tliis occasion-especially as not only thc pockets, but also the lives of Her Majesty's lieges will, by these means, be more effectually protected.

Across the heath, along the wood, O'er moor and mountain, field and flood, I'll jiroudly speed-O, it is good To hear the loud-bang, bang.

CHRISTMAS REMINISCENCES. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 20 December 1845

? CHRISTMAS REMINISCENCES. " Immortalia ne speres, monet Annus, et album Qu^apit Horn iliera." HORACE. Come fill the vrine-cnp to the brim, And let it pass with joyous mirth ; With laughter let the welkin ring And comfort cheer the homely hearth. Swift flow thc jest from sportive throng, Nor idle deem their jocund glee; With mirth, and laughter, dauce and song, Old Christmas still we'll welcome thee. And what, though oge with envious wing, Has cast his cares upon our breast ; Yet memory's force shall sweetly bring Those records, that we once were blest. When in the spring timo of our youth, The world enticed us with its view; Our souls ulcue confessing nulli, Wc deemed, that all, like us-were true. Oh ! Christmas theu a welcome guest, With revelry was ushcr'd in ; How joyous beat tho boyish breast, How pleas'd with mirth and festive din. My boyhood's home, how gny and free, That festive season did appear; Where numbers met in social glee, To celebrate the closing year. When hearts w...

THE CASE OF WITHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 20 December 1845

THE CASE OF WITHERS. Tins appeal, from the decision of Parra- matta Magistrates to their Honors the Judges-has terminated in a manner at once alarming, not only to every colonist but to every member of civilized life. The truly unfortunate individual principally concerned, though declared by the Chie'f Justice not to be insane, has been returned to the custody of the Keeper at Tarban Creek. Our next number will fully enter into the whole proceeding, and we exceed- ingly regret being compelled, through want of space, to omit the particulars of evi- dence adduced during the trial. After a patient investigation, His Honnor the Chief Justice delivered his opinion to. the effect, that irrespective of the evidence of the medical witnesses, lie was preparea to pronounce the man to be of sane mind ; as it was not, however, a question of law, but purely one of science and skill, he would not take on himself in the face of the testimony of a majority of the ten medical gentlemen, most of whom...

"ANONYMOUS ATTACK" IN "THE SENTINEL." [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 20 December 1845

"ANONYMOUS ATTACK" IN " THE SENTINEL." To undertake a paper war with a discarded servant, whose inefficiency as a Reporter was one cause, and whose gross intemper- ance was another, for his being successively kicked (not figuratively nor metaphorically) out of more than one newspaper office in Sydney, would be alike derogatory to our- self and the periodical with whose inter- ests we are involved-" All alone in his j glory" then this aspiring champion must be left-nor could a better explanation of the principle upon which his temerity is founded, be given than that conveyed in the reply of Telemonian Ajax, to the pigmy who once sought a similarly unequal encounter . " For sure hl^namo must bc Ennobled byDKrEAT whouurst contend frith nie." Pope's translation will probably suit the classical attainments of Bob Cooper's elec- tioneering advocate, better than the original Greek ; since notwithstanding the aptitude displayed in so succintly translating " Nemo me," &c, report aver...

WINDSOR. SPARKS AND THE DOCTOR. To the Editor of Bells Life in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 20 December 1845

WINDSOR. SPARKS AND THE DOCTOR. To the Editor of Bells Life in Stidnev. Sin,-Having had ocasión' to be in Sydney during the . last week, and fre- quently mixing with a number of the sport- ing fraternity of that gt cat city, the general topic of confab amongst them was, argu- ment, pro and con, relative to the last race between these two celebrated pedestrians, and from all that (a disinterested listner could glean) the majority seemed to be of opinion that the adair was a dishonest one. Being an Australian myself, and both par- ties being natives of the colony, who in their respective positions in society have hitherto borne an unexceptionablecharacter for honesty, I deem it but just that I should contribute my mite of information, to re- lieve them if possible from the stir/via, under which they at present labour, and which if true, would in future (and very justly so) cause them lo" be discarded and despised by every sporting member of the community. When Sparks run the Doctor on...

" Vir bonus, orana forum quem spectat, et oírme tribunal, Lubra movet tnctuens auiliri Da milli fallcre, da justo sanctoque videri; Noctem poccatis, et fraudibus objice nubem !" IIOItAClî. To the Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. Sin,-Hypocrisy in all ages lias been considered as establishing a barrier to the free and voluntary interchange ol' our so- cial feelings, and to the exercise of genuine sympathy, under the pressure of adverse and unforeseen circumstances. In a hypo- crite, tho finer feelings of our nature have no place ; and the ascendant principle of Iiis nature seems to be regulated, exclu- sively, by prejudice and self-love. He deceives himself, and seems anxious, by every manouvre, to deceive others, by presuming upon their^ credulity and ignor- ance of his character. Though every man takes a delight in deceiving and betraying himself, the self-deception of the hypocrite springs from other sources, than those to which this gene...

MAITLAND, ILLEGAL BREACH OF THE LICEN- SING ACT.

On the part of the defence, it was proved that contrary to the statement of thc ticket-of-leave holder William Knox, he had himself introduced the parlies into the house of the defendant, and upon their be- ing questioned as to their relationship, stated in presence of two persons that he had known them as man and wife for years, and immediately after left the room without saying a word to any ...

To the Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney Sir,-Seeing in your journal of the 13th instant- a challenge of Thomas Sparkes to light any 10 stone man in the Colony for £20 or more, I, the undersigned, George Cupitt, of Windsor, will fight him for £3O, in a 24 feet ring, if he (Sparkes) will not fight for £30, I am willing to fight for £25 the encounter to take place within ½mile of Wind-   sor. I may be heard of at Mr. Thomas Freeman's, St. Patrick's Hotel, Windsor. I shall keep the same mind for 7 days and no longer. I am, Sir, Your obedient Servant, GEORGE CUPIT Richmond, Dec. 17, 1845. [In answer to the above letter, Thomas Sparkes begs us to state that, having once been deceived by the Windsor people, he is not disposed to risk his costs again. Should Cupitt mean fighting however, Sparkes' backers will meet him or any one for him at Parramatta, and make arrangements for a quiet turn tip for £25 aside, the battle to come off half way between Sydney and Windsor.]
