THE ROYAL VISIT TO GERMANY. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 28 February 1846

THE ROYAL VISIT TO GERMANY, WE have been accused of being sarcastic and severe in our remarks on the miser- able campaign at New Zealand, which causes us not to enter on HEKI'S triumph ; as we promised in our last number -how these sensitive critics would fell adorned as they are with the honor of (roy- alty, if they saw a late PUNCH now before us, wherein the Queen (God bless her) and her royal consort are quizzed to the teeth, in their late visit to the continent. Royal pastime in old Bess' reign, aTd that of Queen Victoria, is contrasted with a raci- ness unrivalled. The libidinioiis old wo- man is seated at one side, looking at a bear beating, where the bear buggs the dogs so close that they die in the warmth of the embrace. On the other side is our innocent good natured Queen, looking at the father of our future kings, shooting deer at GOTHA ; while a tear sparkles in her eye that would quench a bonfire. On this subject we are so far enlightened by our cotemporary, as to state ...

THE CENSUS FOR 1846. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 28 February 1846

THE CENSUS FOR 1846. Tins important matter, so far as the dis- trict of Sydney is concerned, is under the immediate supci intendance of Mr. Com- missioner Myles, who, as far as we can learn',' has adopted every precaution to en- sure the accuracy of the returns, by a judicious selection of the parties engaged in this duty, whom he has had frequently before him for the purpose of drilling anú imparting instructions to them.... These parties will commence their operations this morning, by leaving forms or returns with every householder, for the purpose of their being filled up. These forms require tho insertion at full length of the Christian and surname bf every individual who passes the night of Sunday, 1st March, in any house ; also, their social condition, age, civil con- dition, religion, state of education as re- gards reading and writing, occupation, &c.

THE YORK-STREET DEBATING CLUB. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 28 February 1846

THE YORK-STREET DEBATING CLUB. NEVER, was tlie time of any set of men more uselessly employed than is that ol' our City Councillors, at their different cabal meetings, each endeavouring to out- do his fellow in the grossest absurdities, and turning what one would suppose to be an assembly congregated for the pur- pose of pursuing a ra .ional object into a bear garden. No matter what subject is introduced, or what the proposition, it can- not be discussed with calmness. There aie in thc Council, a set of snarlers who go there for the sheer purpose ofcontradiction.arid of keeping u;i a running fire of .angry vitupe- ration against every motion under discus- sion which does not emanate from their empty craniums, or from the " lore ma- nured brains" of some of the clique to which they belong ; aud whilst these angry broils arc going forward, the best interests of the city are left ii» abeyance. The salaries of the different officers of the Corporation are progressing, which together wit...

MATRIMONY IN HIGH LIFE. I WE are happy to learn that the unpleasant affairs at New Zealand are arriving at an amicable conclusion, and thát the Port Macquariô Aboriginal Missionary who re- tired with his luck, is to proceed forthwith to splice Hoxi HEKI to the daughter of --^-d. This is diplomacy with a ven- geance. What security has --d that Heki,in the height df His religious tantrums, or to make a feast for his friends, would not put her in the oven ; but then, " "Ta a.very flue thing to be father-in law To a very tnaguiQcigut three-tailed Bashaw." O, England, where are all your well-merited honors-and God knows you earned them dearly-where are th^y gone ?

THE SEDUCTION CASE. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 28 February 1846

THE SEDUCTION CASE. I Ö.v Saturday last, a c¡iso disclosing a sériés of facts alike unmanly in tlfeir charactër and disgusting in their nature, was heard at the Supreme Court, before his Honor Mr. Justice Dickinson and a jury of four. It was an action brought by Mr. Alexander Douglas, a respectable tailor in Sydney, to recover from the defendant, Mr. John Silver, one of the Assistant Colonial Sur- geons, damages for the loss of his (the plaintiff's) servant girl's services, and for the expenses incurred by the accouchement of the said fema'e, an event consequent on the illicit intercourse carried on previously between her*and the defendant. The girl, after giving her evidence, underwent a severe cross-examination by Mr. Windeyer, which did not, however, produce any varia- tion in her statements, as to the " whole course of wooing" adopted by this " gay Lothario," who had neither youth nor a state of single blessedness to plead as an excuse for his illicit liaison with the girl in qu...

POLICE COURT, WINDSOR. [?] FEBRUARY, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 28 February 1846

POUCE COURT, WINDSOR. I mn FKBHUAHY, 184G, William Cox, Esq., J.P.,aud Dr. Whit- taker, J.P.-The only case of importance tliat came before the court to-day was one of fraudulent conspiracy. Thomas Yeo- mans and Robert Mayo appeared on sum- mons to answer a charge brought by John Ward, of fraudulently conspiring to de- fraud him of the sum of eight pounds. Mr. (Lambton appeared for the prosecution, and stated that in the month of August last Mayo and Yeomans had a farm together, Upon halves, at which time there was nc ?lease between them. Mayo sold eighty bushels of maize to Ward, received the iprice (£8). and paid the same to Yeomans, who subsequently acknowledged having received it. Yeomans having some per- sonal feeling against Ward, openly de- clared that he Avould do Ward an injury 'if he could, and finding that the 80 bushel; 'of maize were sold to Ward, Yeomans and .Mayo laid their heads together to form some plan by which they might, under some plausible pretext, defraud Ward...

TURF. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 28 February 1846

TURF. ON Tuesday last, the match which had been for some time pending between Mr. Hamilton's b. Mare and Mr. G. Seymour's b. h. Lottery, for £20 aside, came off on the Windsor Race Course. Previous to starting, the Mare was decidedly the favorite, in consequence of lier having been trained by old Dunn, who is at pre- sent attending the celebrated old Jorrocks. Indeed, it was rumoured that the old horse could not get away from her in a mile. However, the sequel proved this to be all bunkum, at 3 p. m. thc horses were brought to the post ; Micky Bryan mounted on Lottery, and Johnny Dunn on the Filly our sporting Steward, W. S. Boyles, Esq., being requested to act as umpire. On starting, Lottery took the lead, going away at a slapping pace, closely followed by the mare to the hill, where she collared him, for the remaining distance the pace was desperate, Lottery winning by a length only-time, 2 minutes 4 seconds. Second heat-both horses went away at score, neck and neck to the first t...

MR. HOLMAN, THE BUND'TRAVEIIR R -One day (says Mr. Prtton) I was going out at the gateway at Belgrade, and saw a strange figure, with a long white beard and a Spanish cap, mounted on a sorry.horse. and at once recognised it to be that of Holman, the blind traveller. *' How do you, Mr. Holman?" ssid I. " I know that voice well." " I once saw you in Aleppo," said I ; and he at once named me. I then got him off his horse, and into quarters. This singular individual had just come through the most dangerous parts of Bosnia tn perfect safety, a feat which a blind man can perform more easily thati any one who enjoys the most perfect vision, for all compassionate men assist a fellow creature in this deplorable plight. Next day I took Mr. Holman through the town, and described to him the lions of Belgrade; and taking a walk on the esplanade, I turned his face to the cardinal points of the corrçpnss, successively explaining the ob- jects lying in each direction ; and after an- swering a few o...

To the Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney. VERITAS VINCIT. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 28 February 1846

To the Editor of Bell's Life in Sydney.* VERITAS VINÚIT. Sm.-In glancing over your paper of Saturday the 10th Ultimo, I observed a paragraph headed " THE THEATRE/' and signed " CAUSTIC," which he absurdly prefaces by that, the destruction of virtue among the Romans (and consequently thé decline of Rome herself) were attributable' to the dramatic pei or ma rs in Rome-holv ridiculous. I would recommend Mr. Caustic to correct his blunders in this part of his subject, by procuring a copy of the History of Rome, by Titus Livious, and if he cannot read the original, I recommend him Baker's English translation of that work, and, perhaps, he may thereby procure as much common sense as would protect him from ridicule when he next attempts to write. The next Bull that Mr. Caustic's ignor- ance, presumption, and want of commort sense, and still worse (as may be inferred from the tone of his article) his bad feeling to an inoffensive individual, lead him to commit, renders him incomparably more...

ODD FELLOWSHIP. [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 28 February 1846

ODD FELLOWSHIP. OUR attention lias been drawn by observ- ing in the Herald newspaper, to two dis- tinctly seperate advertisements, for a dinner to commemorate the 10th Anniver- sary of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows ; and we also perceive that the din- ner is to take place at two different hotels, and that the price of a ticket at thc one is 203., and that of the other 10s. 6J. Emanating from the same Lodge, we thought it somewhat strange, and there- fore had the curiosity to enquire into the matter, and shall here state the truth of our information, together with our own remarks thereon. It appears that for a considerable time past, there has been a party or clique in the ORDER, whose overbearing and per- tinacious conduct has been severely felt by many, of the Brethren, who though unwil- ling to create any ill-fèeling or discontent in «Lodge, have still as great a light to introduce, vindicate, and advance any rule or motion for the general welfare of the sameV as. any other...
