WOLLOMBI. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 7 February 1846
WOLLOMÜr. Our district news has seldom been more devoid of public interest than during the* current month,: and unless we may except the general rejoiceineuts at Mr. Dunlop's dismissal from the Police Magis- tracy at the commencement of the New Year, our very existence might be described iu the learned language, of our village lexicographer and poet, as ".replete with inanity." v!Lord, Lyttleton somewhere informs us, that "nature,never designed a vacuum;" " and the mind," he continues, " rather than bc unemployed, will embrace any object, however un- worthy its pursuit." And il is probably owing to the truth'of this axiom that.we are induced to de- vote any portion of our consideration to the otijcct just alluded to. Poor Finie ! rumour with her thousand tongues has invidiously connected with his recent departure for Sydney, the object of ob- taining Old Allot's situation, alleged to become vacant by thc resignation of that patriarchal officer of the Suprpme Court ¡ but we feel as l...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. Sm,-Some fortnight or three weeks back, I ob- served an announcement ia your colamos of some signal mark o( esteem about to be presented to the champion light weight of the colony, William Sparks, for. hia honorable and courageous ; feat«, both aa a pugilist and as a pedestrian. îïow is it. Sir, that since that announcement no further mention has been made of it J Surely it cannot be Will o' the; Wisp like-to raisa ita light and then to fall unheeded. No! not when the blood of-the Slothed Country"throbs ia tbe'veins of her Australian eons.. Since the earliest days British bravery and honor have been proverbial, and thongh I look with "regret upon the falling off in England of the conduct of. that science-which in its manli- ness .hurls .shame upon the rapier-the stiletto and the knife. Still 1 nm proud to think that Britain's sons can emulate the brave-and honorable conduct of, their, forefathers.; : Why shonld not Aus...

PORT PHILLIP. BATTLES OFTIIE Anon.iGrNES.--A pitched battle took place between a tribe of the Melbourne and thc Goulburn blacks. Tho scene .of warfare was in the vicinity of Sydney.Road, about seven miles fruin town; about eighty blacks, on cither side placed themselves at a distance of about ten yards apurt, two ropes placed at that distance, separating them from each oilier;-the more courageous of cither party occasionally advanced within the open space intervening, and wore immediately selected as targets by their o'pxioiicnts; . At a short distance from this scene, some forty or fifty women and children, belonging to tho respective tribes were also engaged iii ri similar occupation. Afr. Robin- son, the Protector, upon being informed of thc circumstance hastened to the spot; and immediately despatched a messenger to town for Dr. Thoma?, who upon his urrival, found between, thirty aud forty wounded, some dangerously, and ono man, belonging to the Melbourne tribe, hopelessly so, h...

DEATH OF MR. JOHN JACKSON, THE FATHER OF THE MODERN SCHOOL OF BOXING. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 7 February 1846
DEATH OF MR. JOHN JACKSON, TUE FATHER Ol" THE MODEKN SCHOOL OF BOXING. Willi feelings of unfeigned regret, we have this week to announce the death ol Mr. John Jackson, the oldest of the modern pugilists, and one of the brightest orna- ments oftlie class from which he sprung. This melancholy event took place oh Tues- day morning, the 7th October last, at one o'clock. The scene of the peaceful exit ol our old and valued friend from the busy stage, on which he had enacted so pro- minent a part, was his residence, No. 4, Lower Grosvcnor-stieet West, where he had lived respected by all his neighbours for many years. Ile died in his 77th year, deeply lamented by a very extensive circle of friends of all ranks, to whom he had endeared himself by his uncompro- mising integrity, by thc kindness and suavity of his manners, as well as by the exercise of never tiring benevolence. The loss of such a man at such a season is an event of serious import, as with him may be considered to have passed ...
THE CHURCHES IN IRELAND. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 7 February 1846
THE CHURCHES IN IRELAND. SIR ROBERT PEET, is again beset with dif- ficulties in Ireland. Some of the heads bf both churches there conspire against him. No degree of friendship, not the smallest, exists between them, they unite not for any one purpose, they stand apart iii a spirit of theological hostility, yet, in fact, they assist each other in assailing him who appears to thom their common enemy. The heads of the Roman Church in Ireland assert that his Education and Charitable Bequests Bills are tainted with irreligion-thc heads of the English Church there accuse him of a tendency, if not a desire, to overthrow the Church. John of Tuarn denounces on one side, Lord John of Armagh complains on the other. The Premier deserves this treatment by his wavering and inconsist- ency; and, sd far as he is concerned, would not receive milch pity. He has riot known how to deal with churchmen-his hand is unsteady-his purpose infirm-his will vacillating. He proclaims and adopts a sensible princi...

CRICKET. - The striker, in turning round to hit a leg ball, stumbles over his stumps ; is he out? - Yes.

Country News. CAMPBELLTOWN. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 7 February 1846
CAMPBELLTOWN. ON Monday a match at cricket was played on Mr. Morris's cricket ground, be- tween eleven players belonging to the town, and eleven from the southern district, in- cluding Appin and Camden, which termi- nated in favour of Campbelltown, having won the match in one innings, with two notches to spare. We have rarely seen better play, and would venture to predict, that with sufficient practice, Campbelltown can play any Club in the Colony, not ex- cepting the far famed Victoria or Australian. The veteran North, exceeded the anticipa- tions of all, having scored 44 ; and were it not from exhaustion, could have done more. After the match was over he was chaired from the ground to Mr. Morris's, where both Clubs dined ; never did the Iron Duke carry his Marshall's baton with more nonchalance than North did his bat, decorated with currency blue ribands ; nor could Dan O'Connell look around him with greater confidence when borne on the shoulders of the finest pisantry in the worl...

No 45-4. / No.1 / " Colonial Secretary's Office, " Sydney, 28th January, 1846. Sir, I am directed by the Governor to inform you that his Excellency has seriously considered the complaints recently preferred against Mr. Dun- lop, by Mr. Thomas Wiseman and yourself ; the latter on behalf of a public meeting of which you, in your capacity of warden of the district, acted as chairman. His Excellency has also attentively considered the answers which have been given to these complaints by Mr. Dunlop. " The various papers which his Excellency has had before him, are those mentioned in the an- nexed letter. " The first complaint is founded on an alleged abuse of authority on the part of Mr. Dunlop, on an occasion when Mr. Wiseman and Mr. David Dunlop, the son of the police magistrate, were driving cattle through the township of Wollombi, there being amongst the cattle a bull, which it was alleged by the police magistrate, had been stolen from him by his said son. " Mr. Dunlop, on being info...

To His EXCELLENCY SIr GEORGE GIPPS, &nbsp; GOVERNOR, &c., &c, &c. May it please your Excellency,-We the under- signed landed proprietors and other inhabitants of the Wollombi district, respectfully beg leave to bring under your Excellency's notice the growing insecurity of person and property in this district, owing to the utter contempt in which magisterial authority is held by the inhabitants, such want of respect being induced by the total loss of confidence in the judicial acts of David Dunlop, Esq., who has long and grossly abused the magisterial powers with which he has been entrusted. We will not trouble your Excellency with a detailed acconnt of the many injudicious acts, nor the many culpable omissions of duty with which that gentleman is chargeable during his official career in this district; but we beg to say, 'that should your Excellency com- mand those complaints tio be particularised, we will cause a true and minute account of such charg...

GOULBURN. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 14 February 1846
GOUXBUßN. We have perused with iuterest the report of the meeting assembled to enquire into the utility of railways in Australia, and we cannot doubt but that their existence will be instrumental in aggrandizing our commercial and social importance. We think, too, that if au y portion of the colony requires this method of speedy transit, it is that purt which docs not possess navigable rivers. We, therefore, cannot but deem that Cr. Nicholson's opinions were well grounded when lie spoke of a railway through thc southern counties as a beneficial and remunerating speculation. The vast and populous districts in this direction, on which the Syduey purchaser de- pends for many common necessaries, have uow ito other means of passage to our metropolitan empo- rium than over our dangerous roads, whilst tho time consumed in the travel necessarily increases the price of thc provisions, to the injury of the buyer, without producing a corresponding increase to thc vender. Even the inhabitants o...

GAMBIA GOOSE. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 14 February 1846
I _ ! GAMBIA GOOSE. j A new section lins been formed iu tlie sub genus1 . Anus, by M. de lu Fresuaye, having for its type tho , Gambia goose, or the goose with a double spur. » Baron Cuvier had already observed, that, in the f genus Anas, there were some birds, who, to the beak ; of a duck, joined legs higher than those of a goose, f and who perched aud built their nests upon trees. 5 Having, however, only seen them after being stuffed, I and not having boen able to get information re ; speeling their habits, ho did not separate them \' from the rest. It is known that tho Gambia goose i is much more slender, rises higher from tho ground t than a swan, it goose, or a (luck ; it perches on . trees, is a courageous aud even fierce bird, and, 1 when irritated, it opens its wings and strikes with! , its spurs. AVhcu it swims, tho shortness of its ; sternum in front, joined to the length of its legs, f forces it to plunge tli'i forepart of tho body and tho 1 base of tho neck, deep into th...

CAMEL FIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 14 February 1846
CAMEL FIGHT. The following curious description of a Cutiiul figtit is taken from " The Maid of Kars." U'ho wrestling was succeeded by n set-to ol camels: These otherwise passive creatures, at certain irritating seasons are upt to be very furious. When male is brought face to face to male, all their , evil passions are awakened, and the moment they nre at liberty they fly at each other with correspond, ing violence. At n given order from the Pasha, a uiagniUceiit camel, his mouth white with foam, lils tongue performing curious convolutions,emitting loud and hoarse cries, was led forth by two men, who were scarcely strong enough to restant hi: impetuosity. Ile was gaily caparisoned with ti ' saddle of crimson, green, and yellow cloth, his head being decked with a bridle, glittering with in lind shells and worsted tassels ; he was, moreover ornamented about the upper arm of the leg will ' armlets, also inlaid with shells.
