RIFLE CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 10 January 1846

I ÏUFLK CLUB. I Thc annual General meeting of the Syd- ney Rifle Club took place at the Red House, Parramatta-river, on the 1st Inst. Three distinct matches came off, one shot each member-the shot nearest the centre of the target to be the winner, according to the rules of the club. The first match was won by Mr. Charles Bruce-the prise a splendid Rifle. The second prize, a superb silver medal, was won by Mr. James Stewart. The third prize,a beautiful silver-mounted snuffbox, was won by Mr. William Aitken. Considering the Sydney Rifle Club to be 'only in its infancy, the shooting did credit, not only to the successful competitors, but to every member of that club-and we, as admirers of that noble art, recommend every youth hi this colony to practice rifle shooting, so that in the course of a few years, they may be enabled to compete with the famed shooters of the far west, better understood to be the Badger Hun- ters on the rocky monntains of America.

THE ROADS. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 10 January 1846

THE ROADS. SOME short time since we had to complain ct the state of the roads between this me "tropolis and the most important adjoining townships. These evils hare been par- tially removed, but as it appears to give birth to others of a description which equally interfere with, anti inconvenience the .public. The new year, with its new " arrangements for the transmission of the mail bags has, by taking coaches off the road, unfolded not only opportunities of extortion to the_ coach proprietor, but bas become a most important obstruction to travelling. In fact, there is scarcely any means of either getting to Parramatta, Penrith, Campbelltown, or Windsor, ex- cept by booking ourself three or four days previous : to the time upon which the jour- ney is commenced. Surely this ts the time for opposition to start" successfully, '"and amidst so large a number of capitalists as our colony now can'boast of, there will be found, some spirited enough to enter into investments at once benefic...

LITERARY RETROSPECT OF THE DEPARTED GREAT. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 10 January 1846

LITERARY RETROSPECT OF THE DEPARTED GREAT. BY A MIDIO E-A G E D MAN,. - My earliest recollections are of Coleridge, taking me upon Iiis knee, and telling me, with a plaintive voice,and with an emphasis that I can never forget» the story of Mary of Buttermere, then a recent subject of Íiopular discourse. His pallid face, his ong black hair, suffered, with the charac- teristic affectation of Coleridge's younger days, to fall about his neck,-the appealing tones of his voice-the earnest gaze which he fastened upon my puzzled countenance, and the aim pie éloquence with which he told the story, aro still present with me. Tears ran down his cheeks-for his were feelings that could be conjured up instan- taneously, I must not omit to say, that this little scene was enacted before a large circle of admiring and sympathetic young women,-my elder sisters, amongst tho most approving,-and whilst philosophers and literati looked on. Thc poet visited the house at which I waa staying, in tho capacit...

THE THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 10 January 1846

THE TIIÊATItÈ, IN noticing the passing events or tho day,1 perhaps it may not be amiss to enst a a slight glance at the Theatrical World. It is admitted on all hands tlint dramatic': exhibitions exercise a. very cons'iäerabjto eíTect on the manners and morals of the community, proportionate to the degree of purity and delicacy with which they are presented to the public. Nothing tends more to refine the mind, to impress it with an admiration of virtue and excellence,: than dramatic entertainments, presented with a rigid observance of propriety and decency, both as respects the subject mat- ter, and the demeanour of the performers. And nothing, on the contrary, exercises a more pernicious and evil influence than such entertainments, when exhibited with- out a strict observance of those requisites. The first injury inflicted on the purity of morals among the Homans, was by dra- matic exhibitions, in which decency and propriety were openly set at nought ; and so destructive of every ve...
