NED CHALKER'S BENEFIT [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 10 January 1846
NED CHALKER'S BENEFIT Will take place on Friday evening next when the lovers of science and self-defence will be enabled to witness a display such a the colony can afford. All the crack artists have promised to attend from that high-bred professional Aby Davis, to the redoubted amateur, who is then to make his debut, It seems almost unnecessary for us to induce the public to come forward with liberality upon this occasion. Chal- ker's well-known principles of lamb-Iike gentleness, his temperance, his industry and last, though not least, his pecuniary misfortunes, seem tocal! forth thc generous sympathy of those who encourage the ad- vance of thc moral and physical conditior of the pugilistic corps. An English wrilei has remarked truly, sometlring to thu I effect, that whatever may be advanced tc the prejudice of- the ring, it is an obvious non sequitur, that professional Boxers mus! rise from thc scum of the earth, that two fine fellows who strip to fight for glory and the wager oh ...

MAITLAND CHRISTMAS RACES. SECOND DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 10 January 1846
MAITLAND CHRISTMAS RACES. SECOND DAY. : On Saturday last, the second day of these races, the weather was oppressively hot, which was' perhaps the cause of the attendance on the course being less nume- rous than on thc previous day. Thc first race was of a most attractive kiudT there being five well-matched horses for a hurdle rape of three miles. The following is the result; ^ 1st Race.-A Hurdle Race for ¿12, three times .round the" course, niue leaps over hurdles 3 feet 0 inches high, weight 10 stoue 7 lbs. . :Mr. Yeoman's Trueboy. 1 . Mr. Johnson's Doctor.... 2 Mr. Nicholson's Block.. 3 : Mr, Beeves's Forester. 4 Afr. Doyle's Pickle. Ö ' Pickle took the first jump itv beautiful style, after .which Trueboy and 'Forester took the lead, and kept it to* the last hurdle. They were closely followed, however, by the Doctor, who at the seventh leap rose nearly along with Forester and Trueboy, and cleared the hurdle in good style, but full on the other side, rolling over and over. His ride...
PUNISHMENT OF THE KNOUT. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 10 January 1846
PUNISHMENT OF THE KNOUT. &nbsp; The handling of the knout demands a &nbsp; long apprenticeship, besides a natural apti- &nbsp; tude of nerve and muscle. The chief exe- cutioner, always himself a criminal con- demned to the punishment which lie in- flicts—the only capital punishment in the Russian empire—receives a free pardon, and is sent home at the expiration of twelve years, during which he is kept in durance excepting when led out to operate. In his cell he gives instructions to his pupils, whom it is his duty to instruct in the horri- ble art of torturing, which he has derived from his predecessor. They practice daily upon a sort of lay figure ; and he shows them exactly, where and how to deal their blow, so as only to cut into the muscle of the loins, when it is merely a civil criminal, a murderer or a felon ; how to inflict im- mediate death, by making the victim dis- locate his own neck ; or how to render death inevitable in a day or two, by curling t...
THE WHITEBOY'S REVENGE. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 10 January 1846
THE WHITEBOY'S REVENGE. After waiting lialf-an-hour for the return of the party. Ryan became impatient. The chaise was at the door ; but there wore no guards round it. After some fur- ther, delay, ,the young man's patience was exhausted. To him the presence or ab- sence of a guard was a matter of no mo- ment whatever ; and he began to feel that to be released from the companionship which had been, he felt, intruded on him would be no trivial advantage. In fine, he examined his weapons, entered into thc chaise alone, and left a message that Mor- ris and the dragoons might follow him, if they pleased to do so, after they had made their capture. After a few miles drive, the postillion dismounted, and walked upa'Mtuge high hill." In former days, roads did not deign to practice that kind of accommodation to the difficulties of the country which mo- dern policy has adopted. They did not evade, or avoid, or turn a hill, no matter how steep it was, but met, and conquered it. The road to be ...
FIGHT FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP OF ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 10 January 1846
FIGHT FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP OF ENGLAND. &nbsp; We are barely enabled to give a brief ex- tract of this important mill, which has terminated otherwise than had been antici- pated amongst our knowing ones, and has certainly deceived ourselves. The next issue will, most probably, contain the full particulars of the Fight. The following is the paragraph alluded to above, and is taken from a Liverpool paper. "THE PRIZE FIGHT—at Litfield-green, &nbsp; in the county of Northampton, between Caunt and Bendigo, for the Championship of England, terminated in the triumph of the latter, after an unsatisfactory contest, which lasted two hours and eight minutes, during which, ninety-three rounds were fought." &nbsp;

That which was to hive been íh'clflI at Port Phillip, we perceive by the journals -from that dependency, has been abandoned for wantx>f the requisite encour- agement in the shape of specie, which v-surely, amongst »o aristocratic (?) a set of ' men as the Fort Philippians regard them- selves, should have been forthcoming. ;'; The programme of prizes advertised for : the Sydney Regatta promise belter amuse- ment than has yet taken place in the '. colony.: The respectability^of the Com- mittee appointed to make tlie necessary carrangements for the purpose of carrying -out the sports, is the best gu...

THE UNREPORTED BARRISTER. : Ob ! nu, they never mention ino, My name is never heard ; . ' - - . The press has now refused to speak That unimportant word. ' From Court to'Court I hurry me, " But sad is my regret ; For even should I win a fee, No notice can I get. They bid me seek at Common Law Tile business others gain, But if I e'en tried Chancery My efforts would be vain. 'Tis true that many I behold Who by reporting get What I'ne'er could, by pen or fee, To my extremo regret. . They tell me there aro many now, Who in their early day Were aided by the press, but I Don't care for what'they say. I only know Tvo struggled hard Reporter's work to get But can't; and so 'gainst those who can I'll make thc deadest set.

-o ? ; SONGS OF THE HEARTH RUG. ; THE DISGUSTED WIFE TO SEO HUSBAKD. You promised to leave off your smoking, The day I consented to wed : How little I thought yon were joking ; - Hoir fondly tellered what you said ! . Then alas! how completely you sold me, With blandishments artful and vain ; When you emptied your snuff-box and told me Yon never would fill it again Î . Those fumes, io oppresssing, and puffing, Say, what is the solace that flows ? And whence the enjoyment of stuffing . . A parcel of dust in your nose ? By the habits yon thus are pursuing There can be no pleasure confered ; /How irrational then is your doing ! Now is it not very absurd ? Cigars come to threepence each, nearly, And sixpence on ounce is your snuff; ' Consider how much, then yon yearly Mast waste on that horrible stuff. I Wliy the sums in tobacco you spend, lore, Th"e.wealth in your snuiT box yon ' - - '. Would procuro me of dressas no end, love, And keep me in gloves, only think ! What's worse for your ...
