Country News. [FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDETS.] WOLLOMBI. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 December 1845

Country Ttfews. [FllOM OUn OWN COIinF.SPONDETS.] . WOLLOMBI. Tbc close of tile harvest season has been rather unpropitious iu our district, in consequence of wet weather, which, during the last tou days, lins caused a total suspension to tile operations of the sickle and harvest teams.- As the sccuriug of the late-sown wheat crops, howovcr, has alone beeu retarded by this otliecwiso beneficial visitant, it is questionable whether the advantages accruing to the maize and ;tObai!firi»_ I'M^a nilli nnè [w^.onJei-o'.c-uöamDt «nj ¡"-j j nry which thc late wbcul may possibly sustain from ' the reasons just given.

THE LIBERTY OF THE SUBJECT. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 December 1845

THE LIBERTY OÉ THE SUBJECT. THERE is no nation on earth whoso inhabitants feel so proud of their liberty as do those of England, and perhaps very justly ; for, blessed with a press, the liberal portion of which will never be found pandering to tho satellites of office, those freaks cannot bo carried on with impunity by tho authorities which arc hero of cvery-day occurrence. It is a matter of indifference how trivial the charge, or what assumed, only call for a constablo in Sydney, and you may send an individual to tho watch-house, there to lio iu a lil thy den, midst tho vilest " sans- culottes" until next doy, and if on a Saturday all tho better, as tho obnoxious individual will have j the benefit of a Sunday's lodging, and when brought up on Monday, and probably uo appearance against him, he is told that " he's discharged," anti there the matter ends. Is thc constable or constables who incarcerate the individual, reprimauded by' thc magistrates for such a stretch of duty ? No such...

CHRISTMAS. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 December 1845

CHRISTMAS. Time, on whose arbitrary wing, Tlie varying hours flag or fly, Whose tardy Winter, fleeting Spring, But drag or drive us on to die, lias, in its ceaseless revolutions, brought I round to us again one of those joyous and festive periods of the year, when the mind and the heart of man, relaxed from tlu? cares and selfishness, invariably attendant upon his worldly pursuits, expand to the enjoyment of the sweets of hospitality and conviviality. Christmas is truly the sea- son of mirth and good humour, and though brief in duration, it comes to us replete with the dearest and tenderest associations of our lives. Assembled round the social board ' we live o'er the past again, and re- caí those days-those halcyon days-when surrounded by the associates of our youth -parent, brother, sister, friend-we partook of the richest feast allowed us in this sublu- nary wotld-" the feast of reason, and the flow of soul"-in the purest sense of the words, when (as the celebrated Curran ex- pre...

THE PAWNBROKING SYSTEM. I IT lias ""been" "urged ~i rTd ¿felice of tl lis sys"- " tem of extortion-for we can call it by no other name, when we find that for advanc- ing three shillings for 28 days on good security, the sum of sixpence is charged, being at the enormous rate of tiuo hundred and sixteen per cent-that no existing law of the colony is infringed, and that parties exercising this very honorable vocation, have a right to do so till the Legislature puts a restraint on their proceedings. Such, at least, was an argument addressed by one ol'our oldest advocates, and an ex înember of our Legislative Council, ut the time the investigation was going on last week in the Police Office, with reference to a stolen ring found in the possession of one of those cormorants, and on which the sum of three shillings had been lent, at the rate of interest we have named. Admit- ting the foregoing defence lo be a sustain- able one, as regards the law, still we main- tain that the practice is i...

Police Reports. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 December 1845

Police Reports. MONDAY.-The number of bacchanals who milda their appearance this morning had in- creased considerably since this day week, which can be accounted for by tho fact that the'greatcr portion of them were from the interior, some with wool, others for the purpose of laying in their Christmas supplies "had visited Sydney, all of whom escaped without fines it being their first offence. James Harrigan, well known as Haddi gaddy, was charged by au individual named John Williams, a boll hanger, with using threatening language towards him. Harrigon's defence was that Williams made some allusion to a quarrel between him (Harrigan) aud a third party, and said that ho would serve Williams the same way, had he used such language towards him as was ruado use of on that oooasion. This Williams denied, aud the de- fendant was bound over to keep the peaco.

WHITE CONDUIT HOUSE. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 December 1845

"WHITE CONDUIT HOUSE. MANY of our readers have been disap- pointed in the stoppage of the simple sports which was to have taken place at Mr. Dod dery's yesterday, and in the preparations for which he spared no expense-but the Commissioner of Police stepped in (we crave Mr. Myles' pardon, Commissarys they are called in France, Fouche was a Commissary) and threatened to deprive Mr. D. of his license-and that immedi- ately-if the sports advertised were allowed to take place. Well, we do say, that those paltry interferences of Mr. Myles, is any- thing but creditable to our City Magistrates, who, by their non-interference tolerate such threats against their fellow citizens ; he, who only some short time back, had to compound with his creditors, threaten- ing to deprive a respectable man of his livelihood? the thing is preposterous.

PETERSHAM. WEDNESDAY EVENING. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 December 1845

PETERSHAM. WEDNESDAY EVENING. THE muster at the Corner this evening was tolerably strong, and business brisk. After some sharpshooting in the shape of chaff, the stewards declared themselves open for ?entry. The important folio was accordingly unclasped, nnd the names, weights, and colors of thc riders appeared upon the " virgin page.'' Some argument arose at an early stage of the proceedings as to whetlrer a yearling could be allowed the feather weight, but this was overruled, and " Try'em," a 17 months filly, weighted as a two year old. As the entries were pro- gressing, Mr. James Oatley rose to call the attention of the Meeting to the fact of a de- viation in the advertisement from the origi- nal motion put to and carried by thc first Meeting. The M.S. of the Meeting in question was sent for, when it appeared that the advertised regulations contained not only tiie substance but the literal significa- tion of tire resolution passed. The amount of entry and qualification paid to th...

THE PHYSIOLOGY OF LONDON LIFE, AUTHOR OF "THE WORLD OP LONDON." LONDON FANCIES. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 December 1845

THE PHYSIOLOGY OF LONDON LIFE, BY J. FISHER MURRAY, I AUTHOR OF " THE WORLD OP LONDON.' LONDON PANCIES. Let two . Englishmen meet anywhere without a formal introduction, as long ns one or the other can get a newspaper, not a syllable will bc exchanged between them; and if luckily, there are newspapers apiece, they feel altogether relieved from the neces- sity of saying a civil word, or interchanging those common courtesies of conversation, which make so great a part of the pleasure of our lives,- I do not know whether the feeling is general, but for myself, when I am in a room with men who, scrutinizing each oilier, never condescend to open their lips, I feel a painful sensation, as ir I were in, presence of an enamy; if I sit down to osteal willi one of those curmudgeons, Ido not énjoy my victuals ; if I travel in In's no company, l am far from enjoying my jour- ney.

MR. WITHERS, THE ALLEGED LUNATIC. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 December 1845

> MR. WITHERS, THE ALLEGED LUNATIC. IT was our intention Last Saturday to have given a report of the proceedings in this important case, but some of our cotempo raries having gone so fully into it, and others having promised to dilate upon the sifbject in a publication of this day, we shall, after this explanation to our readers, merely give a concise account of the cir- cumstances connected with the case, to- gether with a few comments upon the medicalevidence. The unfortunate person upon whose state of mind His Honor lately delivered judg- ment, has for some years been a resident in the neighbourhood of Parramatta, pur- suing his various avocations, without at- tracting the attention of the authorities, or even of his neighbours, further than as an eccentric fellow, of a quick turn of mind, and slightly nervous temperament. By some means or other during the last few months, he has come into collision with the Police Magistrate of the district and his subordinates At the period ...

The Ring. CHALKER AND HOUGH. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 December 1845

The Ring.     CHALKER AND HOUGH. IT is somewhat surprising that upon the eye of that glorious struggle for the Cham- pionship of Australia we should be so in- tensely anticipating intelligence from the Mother Country, relative to that event which has ere now decided Caunt's or Bendigo's priority to the Belt of the World. A strange similarity of circumstances ap- pears to exist in these two fights,which seems to offer us a favorable opportunity for hitting-out at that overweening sanctimony of sects in our community, who condemn wholesale, every species of manly recrea- tion—prophecying aloud, destruction and ultimate misery to the patrons of the ring or the pit—and going even further, in their vain- glorious auguries they associate in triplicate "the Public House, the Race Course, and   the Gaol." Upon these scrupulous gentry we have little chance of making inroad. They are sworn, publicly, from the house tops, and from the corner of the street...

WINDSOR. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 27 December 1845

WINDSOR. The constabulary of the town of Windsor are, generally speaking, a very decent well-behaved set of men, perfectly complacent in their demeanour to the inhabitants. This, perhaps, we may attribute to their being under the immediate eye of the inde- fatigable chief, but we are indeed sorry we cannot say so much of the district:" trnp3V'">We never pay a visit to the neighbourhood of Richmond, at which place is a [???] invested with the order of the painted batten, "but we find this fellow either in a state of intoxication, or hanging about the public house doors to see what poor ticket-of-leave man (to which class he is a terror) may be disposed to ball him off.
