GASTRONOMIC RIVALRY. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 31 January 1846
GASTRONOMIC RIVALRY. THE last few evenings have been prolific of those luxurious compounds which others than Aldermen seems to gloat upon with momentary satisfaction. Yes! Sydney has changed the venue, and thc most desirable cue is now, where to get the best feed. Champagne and Insolvency hove given way to public dinners and spcechification; while kangaroo soup and loyalty in some quarters are perceptibly sui rendering tb real turtle and rebellion. A few months ago, every . second man one met, settler or citizen, seemed as if he had rasped his tusks to suit the times. A lank visage bearing therein despondency betokened a. sudden retrench- ment, while " the red rubies, dug from the mines of Canary," had softened down into udorous and unequivocal diagnostics of rigid adherence to Old Mathew's doc- trines But the congenial spirits of this world love chango* and a rapid transit has hoprcsto'd the community into the vortex of funner extravagancies. The Bar Dinner, given to Mr. Justice A'...

Local Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 31 January 1846
Koeal Intelligence. In the Herald of the 17th Instant a paragraph headed " Escape" appeared, in which it is very untruly stated that one of the prisoners, named Lawrence Rourke, informed Mr. Hibbs that as he was merely in for being drunk, he would pay the fine, a friend having given him a pound note for that purpose. lt goes on to say that Hibbs took the moiiey and allowed the prisoner to depart, but discovered too late that tlie party tie had allowed to go oft'was not Rourke, but Janies Graham, the principal in thc robbery perpetrated on the premises of Messrs. Melville and Lambert. Now, from the above statement it would appear that Hibbs was to blame through- out the whole transaction-in fact, that he has connived at.the escape, of a. burglar ; but,"on enquiry, we find that the blame rests solely and wholly with the police, james Graham was forwarded tb the gaol under a drunkard's warrant, instead of Lawrence Rourke, and having answered to that name when called by the clerk, he te...

Country Newa. PÍCTON. POLICE OFFICE, JAN. 14, 184fî.-Be- fore M. Macalister and It. Blackwell, Esqs., J.Ps.-Pope versus St. Crispin. The better half of one of St. Crispin's disci- ples was charged with having used threat- ening and indecorous language towards Mistress Pope, tending to lower the dignity of, and bring into contempt, that person- age. Complainant was frequently inter rupted in the statement of her caso by de- fendant's husband, who, by ugly inuendoes, tried to sully her fair name ; but his base insinuations were indignantly repelled by " a glance full of meaning" from the bright, blue, optics of complainant, whose measure of revenge (whenever interrupted) seemed satisfied by the disdainful ejacula- tion of tho monosyllable " SNOU," the ejaculation of which displayed " a set of ivories" that would not disgrace a sultan's harem.

THE CONTEST FOR THE CHAMPIONship of England, between Ben Caunt and William Thompson alias Bendigo. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 31 January 1846
THE CONTEST FOR THE CHAMPION- ship of England, between Ben Caunt and William Thompson alias Bendigo. This match which, ever since the 17th April last, on which day it was made, has excited an extraordinary degree of interest increasing in intensity as the period for its decision approached, was brought to a con- clusion on Tuesday last, in a field close to Suffield Green, beyond Lillingston Level, in the county of Oxford, we regret to re- cord under circumstances which are far from calculated to sustain the reputation of British boxers, still less to dignify the office of "Champion of England." It is un- &nbsp; neccessary to say that in our unshrinking &nbsp; &nbsp; advocacy of the sports of "the Ring," we have been solely influenced by a desire to support those rules and regulations by which fair play and impartiality is secured towards the individuals who, in their own persons, may think proper to demonstrate the prin- ciples upon which all personal contest...

THE THEATRE. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 7 February 1846
THE ..THEATRE. Wc have lately, owing to a press of other matter, omitted to notice the performances at the Victoria; and in this we plead guilty to n charge, which may be brought against us, of " neglect .of duty;" agreeing as we do with Dr. Maror, who observes that .'in whatever light the surly dogmatist may consider Flays in geueral, it may be asserted on safe grounds that they good in particular; they are may impart much knowledge without the languor of study; and warn from error, without an approach td tlie verge of guilt. Indeed, where virtue obtains those rewards which heaven will bestow-and poetic justice should never withhold-and where vice smarts for its crimes; aiid is liot rendered alluring by thc attraction of pleasing qualities, then the stage may be considered as an auxiliary to the pulpit; for morality and religion must ever be united." The performances have latterly been of a legitimate cast, and we have to bear testimouy tn the very oxcellent acting of Mr. Nesbitt; ...

Sydney Quarter Sessions. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 7 February 1846
Sydney Quarter Sessions; On Monday morning, the 2nd instant, thc Court of Quarter Sessions commenced its sittings at the New Cour House, Darlinghurst, with a calendar of sixty-five cases, since which there have been a few moro added to it. The character of the crimes generally, was light, but we were sorry to see that mauy of the individuals charged were persons who arrived free or were born in the Colony. We fear too, that thc general leniency of the sentences here- tofore passed by this Court has had, and so long as it continues, will have thc effect rather of in- creasing the commission of crime than of deterring "pcrsous from it; and although we admit that a very wide distinction should bo mada betwoen a novice in guilt and tho old and oft convicted offender; still, thc punishment to either malo or female for n first offence should be marked-it should be se vero even if of short duration. It should, in fact, be " a terror to evil doers." MONDAY, 2\D FcnnuAnv. Henry Navarro, au e...
BATHURST. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 7 February 1846
BATHURST. RACES.-A stir has at length been made to get up races this year-a meeting is called for the 28th Instant, at the Black Bull Inn,- for thc purpose of electing Ste- wards, appointing a committee, for collect- ing subscriptions, &c. For several previous years these races have been held at Alloway Bank, late the property of Captain Piper, but we are informed that the present owner is not willing to grant permission for the races to be held there this year ; and that tire forthcoming races will be held on some land of Mr. Lawson's, at the end of Ka ble's Lane, and about two miles from the town. It would be far more desirable that these races should be held on the Town Common, being a fine level piece of land and well adapted for the purpose. We have been informed that one of the notices of the proposed meeting, that had been posted on the wall near the Police Office, (where notices of all sorts, and descriptions j are usually posted,) was torn down by an ' officious con...
WILLIAM SHARPE THE CONVICT. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 7 February 1846
WILLIAM SHARPE THE CONVICT. So successfully lias the above-named indi- vidual carried on his nefarious tra/Ho for a series of years, that, at length, though an adept in the art of plunder, his pros- perity (!!) nas mastered his discretion, and left a gap in his fence over which " the glorious uncertainty of thc law," has ridden rough shod. Swimming upon the frothing tide of villany and cunning, the unhappy wretch had (like others in this community) set his soul, and apparently risked it, upon the acquisition of wealth. No art too mean for his acquirement-no stratagem too contemptible for his design,-he lived upon the unfortunate of both sexes, at once a witness to mutual iniquities, and a pestilential adherent to their reciprocal shame. However, let us, departing from custom, give the few particulars connected with his life, which we have been enabled to glean, in hopes that so terrible a detail of crime, and so sure a sequel to its com- mission may have a negative or repellant powe...
To the Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 7 February 1846
To thc Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. I Silt,-Whilst I acknowledge with most of those who comprised the numerous and respectable meeting held on Thursday, thc 29th ultimo, at Mr. Lyons' Rooms, the importance of the subject they met to dis- cuss, viz., tiie practicability of forming railroads in Australia, I cannot but look on the matter as one fraught with conse- quences which may prove injurious instead of beneficial to our brightening prospects. I admit there ate many points which may bc urged in favor of thc speculation, (for snell I must consider it), but I cannot help thinking that the arguments which may be adduced against its being at present enter- tained, arc more forcible. I cannot ex- pect, Sir, that you should devote much space to the unsupported opinions of a solitary individual, whose fears for the re- sult of the projected undertaking have led him to oller to your consideration obser- vations, which by the numerous supporters of- the scheme, will doubtless be ridicu...
