Original Poetry. &nbsp; For the " Sydney Herald." THE PRESS. I. &nbsp; When Time her infant course began, The grand creative word was given, " Be Light,"—through space the mandate ran, And Light was poured o'er Earth and Heaven; The scattered beams their lights display, And centre in the blaze of day, Night fled apace, with all her sable train, And Darkness yields to Light her ancient reign. II. &nbsp; Tis thus the Light of Knowledge spreads, Her beams, by man's creative hand, Wisdom and Truth, and Virtue sheds. O'er sightless eyes in darkened land. Be mine the task, the rays to pour, Of Science o'er each Southern shore, And Virtue's flame her light shall lend, To grace and guide each Patron friend ; Wisdom to distant lands and isles impart, And Peace diffuse o'er every troubled heart. III. &nbsp; Mine be the task, the Historic page, To spread, unstained by Faction's fire, To fan the flame of generous age, To string the yonthful Poet's lyre ; To swell...

MARKETS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 18 April 1831
MARKETS. THURSDAY, APRIL 14.—Field produce was in abundance in the matket this morning, though not so plentiful as upon former occasions, and met a ready sale at moderate prices.

Some fine horses exchanged hands, on moderate terms. The settlers are generally employed in pre- paring for the reception of wheat or turnips, and notwithstanding the late abundant harvest, it is expected a very large quantity of wheat will be put in the ground this...
