NED CHALKER AND GEORGE HOUGH. THESE men arc matched to fight for £100 aside. The closing of thc preliminaries was quietly disposed of at* Skinner's, in Pitt street, yesterday morning. Both men were present, and the usual chaffing gag tended to enliven the swells and others present.

English. Extracts, MATCH FOR THE CHAMPION SCULLS. Ou Saturday afternoon, the Otb instnnt, Messrs Bumpstead and Chapman contended for tho ohatu. piunship of tho Thames, and tho holding of thc silver sculls, an honorary distinction which mon) " good men and true" have struggled hnrd to obtain and with varied success. Last year the " symbol of fame" loll to the lot of Mr. Bumpstead, but hie equally gallant and first-rate sculling opponent hail proved triumphant on more titan oue previous oe casion. These gentlemen, however, havo so fre- quently showed in aquatic competition, and their superior merits are consequently >'so extensively known, that we deem it quite unnecessary to re- capitulate their respective ff. doiDgs." Tho match of Saturday was looked forward to with no little anxiety by the amateurs" of the river, and, notwith- standing thc unfavourable state of the weather, the wind being extremely powerful, and occasionally blowing " great gnu's", down thc Thames, most of tho c...

MORETON BAY. Now tho uiopusscs arc coming into tho squat- ters exchequer, from tho proceeds of their present clip, wo begin to soo a little life, in our otherwise peaceable townships. At Ipswich, tho Lads of tho Whip sport tho tin in Gue style, think it obscuro to\wcml their weary way to lirisbana to bc pickod :Up by tho Traps for getting malty, and have thc next ntorniug to shell out to tho Beak ßvc or ten of tho queen's imagos.

GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 December 1845
GOULBURN. A merry Christmas ouil a happy New Year , have long been the wishes which frieuds are wout to ex- press at this season, and if tho fact of possessing tho former he any indicator of the felicity of the latter, thea we may congratulate the good people of Goulburn upon a happy 1810, for the majority of U3 appear to bo in active preparation for our Christ- mas festivities. A shooting match, under the aus- pices of our worthy host of the " Goulburn Iun,' will take place on Boxing Day, upon the green op- posite to his premises. A foot race will also come off on the same day, the aspirants for pedestrian fame being tried worthies knowu to this lócalo by the names of the " Plying Butcher," and the «&lt; Galloping Blacksmith," the former competitor who, when deprived of his "nom de guerre," re- joices under tho meek, appellation of Afr. John Lamb, is, wo understand, n well-tried runner, and is nearly certain of success. Many other diversions . aro hoing talked of, and child...

English Extracts, *> SHOCKING CRUELTY*-A Spanish Journal states that a short time back, as n dealer in leeches was travelling ou a by road in Estremadura, he was stopped by a band of thieves, who demanded his money. Ho assured them that he had none about, him, having expended all that he had brought with him. Having ascertained that he had told the truth, they in revengo for their disappointment thrust his head into thc sack in which ho carried his leeches, and bound it tightly round his neck. Soma country people passiugby not long afterwards found him dead, he having bceu bled to deatli by his own stock. OIIAKOE DEMONSTRATION AT ENNISKJLLEV.

WINDSOR. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 December 1845
"WINDSOi. Wo Dud by placards posted through thc town this day that it is the iu ten lion of some of our towns folk to get np a little sport in shape of racing, to take place at the Windsor- race course on New Year's Duy. The prizes will be a hunting saddle, a gold watch, and a musical snuff-box. We may, therefore, anticipate some good fun in the little-go way, preparatory to our annual -Turf Club ilaces. Much credit is due to our sporting friend, Mr. Baylis, for his promptitude in forwarding the erection of 'a new grand stand, which we are happy to say is nearly completed. POLICE OFFICE.-Fortunately Mr.fitzgerald, J.P., has returned from thc country, and weean again boast of having ONE resident magistrate in thc town of Windsor. Thc presence of this genlleniau is a great acquisition ; still, had it not been for the kind attention of Dr. Whitaker, who at some personal inconvenience attended, wa should not have had two magistrates.

THE PROTESTANT SENTINEL. "No Scandal about Queen Elizabeth, I hope." To the Edition of Bell's Life in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 December 1845
THE PROTESTANT SENTINEL. "No Scandal about Queen Elizabeth, I hope." To the Editai' of Bell's Life in Sydney. SIB,-It was not until I received your issue of last Saturday tliat I was aware that the " Sentinel" had "condescended" to notice my "imbecile rhapsody,'» and it cost mc some pains before I could light upon any one who honored the " Sentinel" with their support ¡ this, certainly is rather astonishing after the boast which this journal makes of its unex- ampled success iu tile Goulburn district. Having read the effusion in question, I will offer a few re- marks upon au article which possesses not half thc merit of the answers it has already called forth. My intention in resisting any stricture upon Mr. It. Craig, the Goulburn Agent of tho Sentinel, was tb . unmask tho hypocrisy of au illiterate and canting impostor, by. shewing his connection withja journal, -so depraved Us=the^ydn'ey"S5n0nel,''the; Editor of " which must.be aware that I did not cloak my article under the disg...
BATHURST. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 December 1845
BATHURST. BOARD AND LODO INO HOUSES.-Notwithstanding thc many complaints made of thc injury ilona to society by these receptacles of infamy, there appears no abatement of tho evil ami but little probability of any relief until somo legislative enactment bc passed for tho regulation of houses'of this descrip- tion. In our young town wo think, on a moderate calculation, there cannot be less than 30 of these " houses of accommodation," being at least ten times more than aro required for tho public conve- nience. Thoro is scarcely an assize or quarter sessions passes over at which one or more pvisoners aro not convicted who have been takon out of these houses. Thoy have becomo perfect posts to the town, ami are most of them sinks of debauchery, infamy, and immorality, and many of thc occupants of them aro well known to be recipients of stolen .property. Out of tho wholo number it would bo difficult to fix on three of them that are conducted on nnj> thing Uko a decent or respectable s...
THE REBEL'S CONFESSION. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 December 1845
TUE REUE L'S CONFESSION. I toidi titee, father, every crinia ? And by my'Lbpes of Heaven, I'pray, while death vouchafes me time, ? - - My parting soul bc shriven : No doubt, some foemen's blood 1 spilt, Dut left the tale unspoken-? Because rebellion seems not guilt, When bonds are to be broken. No, Father ; no, it could not rmi My soul to fiery danger ; To wring ray share of soil, and sun, And safety, from thc stranger ! The weapon is a holy thing, When slaves arc forced to choose it ; Thc bee is gifted with a stiug!' For what-if not to use it ? 1 own my chains'I strove to burst, By battle out of season ; But I am sinless for, at worst, The error of my reason! That error serves my country's need, ' Like an astute adviser, And no'or can I repent tho deed, That makes brave men the wiser. If tyrants hold unquestioned power, O'er God's immortal creatures, Ile vainly stamped his noblest dower His imago on our natures ! Let swords flash' ont no bold reproof, While tyrants disinherit, And ...
EPSOM RACES. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 December 1845
EPSOM RACES. We are enabled to announce that mea- sures are about tobe taken which will very materially improve these popular races, greatly benefit the town of Epsom, and add in no slight degree to the comfort and convenience of thc visitors. It has been long"and justly a subject of complaint, that the greatest and by far the most important race in all the world, viz., " the Derby" should be the one most imperfectly seen by thc spectators, and that there..should be lc3¿ ^-accommodation atiortlotl -to-ownons. and trainers of race horses "oh Epsom Downs than any other place, there being no central spot or " rendezvous" where " everybody" might be found. On the "Detby day" especially, owners of horses have been known to be for hours hunting for their trainers or jockeys, and all'racing men well know how many things have to be said and done on thc eve of a great race. Trainers have not been able to get near their horses, or in some instances even to find them after they have run, there...

BATHURST. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 December 1845
BATHURST. FiuoAS.-A bit of a sliiady took place in oar tovm on Friday last, anil which we think is most likely to end in furnishing employment for the gen- tlemen of the long robe. It would appear that a certain limb of the law had boen paying his ad- dresses with no measured zeal for some months past to a young lady in otir towu all of a sudden, and without any assignable, reason he discontinued his devoirs;'tito father of the young lady became indignant at such conduct, and requested a ccrtaiu J. F. to bear a challenge to the offender ! tho J. P. very properly considered that it more behoved him to be a peace-maker thau a peace-breaker, gave, in- formation to the police, aud tho father was bound to bc of good behaviour. Shortly after tho bro the r iu-lsw of the'young lady, who felt equally indignant, came across tho said limb in the public street, and shaking a whip ho had iu his hand, told the said limb to consider himself horse-whipped ; but it further appears that, tho said lim...

PENRITH. A lamentable catastrophe ' occurred within the precincts of this village, ? on Saturday evening last, the 20th instant, hy the premature death from drowning, of Mr. Hogan, junior, who had been but a fortnight in the colony-the particulars are as follows-Mr. Hogan, merchant? of Penrith, having acquired an independent property sinco his coming here, with a very laudable and affectionate regard, sent to the land of his nativity for his aged parents and their children-his brothers and sisters. To Hogan's great joy they arrived about a fortnight ago, thc deceased among tho number. Ou Saturday evening Mr. Ityau and Mr. Hogan walked dowu to the river to bathe, and had loft tho water after re- freshing themselves in the . cooling stream, when the deceased came up, stripped, and jumped in; iu a short time his feet became entangled iu tho weeds-his brother immediately proceeded to his relief-and we understand ho would have likewise perished by the deceased grappling with him, had not...
