Poetry. ORIGINAL AND SELECTED. After the style of a curious French Poem. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 20 January 1855

ORIGINAL AND SELECTED. After the style of a curious French Poem. Me ?-I rake ! You may censure or praise, Or jest at my ways, But-I rake ! I for nobody care, Tho' I'm known everywhere. After setting of sun, When business is done, To my garret I haste And don my fast dress; But I leave you to guess With what exquisite taste. I'll my costume explain You'll not think me vain? Forbear then to chide: In the cut of my hair, " Le jeune hommc " to appear, I take a great pride. My coat, you must know, Has a waist very low; And my waistcoat is long : My trowsers are light, Made of cords, rather tight; En effet-nothing's wrong. My hat's of a make Just fit for a rake; And my gloves are of kid. I've a ring on each hand; My boots are japanned; And now, nothing's hid. My delight is to sip Sherry cobbler, or flip : And when needing fun, I moke my best way To a " hell," or the play, Or a dancing saloon. I can handle a cue, And my game is as tvue As any, 'tis said; I've a rare run of luck, Tho' I n'e...

IMAGINATION. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 20 January 1855

IMAGINATION. While judgment stands the helms man of t-he affections and passions, guiding them to whatever is good, and steering them from whatever is evil, imagination owns a lighter, but more ex tended and more enchanting dominion. More fitted to serve than to govern, it yet exerts an unlimited sway. Confined by no laws, restrained by no bounds, its throne is the human mind, its empire the universe. From its secret cell it flies on the wings of thought to every corner of the habitable globe, with the lightning's speed darts through all space, expatiates in the bound less ether, visits the suns of other systems, images each possible and impos sible form of creation, exhausts old worlds, and then imagines new. No spot can be barred from the incursions of imagination, no space too vast for its flight, no object too mi nute for its notice. From the gloomy dungeons of captivity it can waft the poor prisoner to light and liberty. It can, in one moment, transport the sorrowing exile over...

Literature. TURKEY: GEOGRAPHICAL, AGRICULTURAL, AND STATISTICAL. (Concluded, from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 20 January 1855

'Up Literature. TURKEY: GEOGRAPHICAL, AGRICULTURAL, AND STATISTICAL. {Concluded, from our last.) The remains of canals, reservoirs, and aqueducts, the traces of several old villages and towns on plains which at present scarcely suffice for the support of one ; the heapu of stones scattered about in different parts, and which had been cleared from the surrounding soil in order to render it more productive-all testify to the truth of the assertion that Turkey was much further advanced in agriculture in ancient times than she is to-day. It was the comparison between the past and present condition of agriculture in Turkey that led the Turkish Government, about ten years ago, to insti tute a special committee to enquire into the causes of the bad state of agriculture in the different parts of the empire, and to discover some means of remedying it. For this purpose ten Medjalici-Imarie, or "ameli orating committee men," were elected to investigate the state of agriculture in Rou melia and...

THE TUENA. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 20 January 1855

THE TUENA. We hear that these diggings are going on in their usual quiet and profitable course. There are not more than 150 diggers at the outside, mostly old hands, who have been doing the thing comfortably; several, in fact, who have taken up their residence at these diggings have amassed fortunes, but their success does not appear to cause them to leave off, but seems to inspire them to new exertions. The gold lies chiefly in pockets ; but by the use of a long torn very remunerative yields are ob tained by ordinary strippings. Judging from what we can learn, these diggings are very suitable for those who purpose to settle down to the occupation of gold seeking, as more comforts and quietness can be secured there than on any other gold field in the colonies. The present dry season is peculiarly favourable for trying the bed of the creek, which as yet has not been tested. Considering the limited number of workmen, we think the Tuena has proved quite as profitable as any other diggi...

ADELONG CREEK DIGGINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 20 January 1855

ADELONG CREEK DIGGINGS. The hidden treasures of the Adelong .would, if revealed by the accession of a competent number of diggers, surpass the far-famed Bendigo and Forest Creek. Mr. Lovett, of the Bangus Inn, has this morning bought 42 ounces of gold dust from a party who have been pros pecting on the Tumburrumba Creek about ten miles from the present dig gings; and during the past four months has purchased no less than 1200 ounces, which, considering the few diggers (at the most 300) is not amiss, as this is a small proportion to the amount actually obtained, there being many other buyers. There have been rumours for some weeks of a party sending in large quanti ties of gold from some place in the direc tion of the Tumburrumba, and the party bringing the above-named 42 ounces places it beyond a doubt that a rich gold field exists in that quarter. Already several parties have started for the spot from the present diggings; but it is a well-known fact that larger num bers than 200 o...

NEW RUSH ON SPRING CREEK. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 20 January 1855

ON SPRING CREEK. SINCE writing the above report on the gold fields of the district, we received in telligence of a new rush having taken place on Spring Creek. We have taken great pains to ascertain the truth of the rumour, and our readers may depend on the following information being cor rect ; There are about one hundred persons engaged on a piece of ground that has hitherto escaped intrusion of the pick and shovel, situated about one mile above the 'Junction' at Madman's Gully. A few of the holes have been bottomed, and have in each case yielded a good prospect. Our messenger saw two tin dishes full of earth washed, and the result was about half an ounce of gold, which is decidedly coarser than the metal usually obtained on this creek. The sinking is about 16 to 20 feet deep, and the lead appears to run into the hill. We have now on our table a specimen of the washing stuff from one of the claims, which appears to be very rich,. The gold is quite apparent to the naked eye, and ab...
