RECOMMENDED TO MERCY. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 3 February 1855
RECOMMENDED TO MERCY". " MEIICY" it has been said " is the brightest jewel in the crown of royalty," and we trust that in the case of the recent convic tion of the editor of the Balaarat Times, for sedition, the Lieutenant-Governor will show that he has borrowed a ray of bril liancy from that crown whose representa tive he is. Mr. Sechamp has besn strongly recom mended to mercy by the jury who pro nounced the verdict of " guilty," on the ground that the evidence did not convict him of having actually written the ob noxious articles which lie had been called upon to defend. Surely when the government reflects that, in a measure owing to their mismanage ment, in the first, instance, things were brought toa state calculated toarouse rebel lious feeling in excitable minds, and further, that such feelings pretty generally existed at Balaarat, altho' they were not very publicly expressed, it will be led to deal lightly with this gentleman, who, by the verdict of a jury, is now within its ...

THE SUibcittscv." " This is true liberty, when free-born men, having to advise the public, may speak free."-Milt, trans. Eury. SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1855. A HOUSE DIVIDED AGAINST u. ITSELF. i! IT is much to be lamented that, at a time like the present, when the political affairs of tbe Gold Fields are in so critical a posi tion, and when great and ma terial changes in the laws are impending, that there should be so many and conflicting opinions with regard to what is desirable and necessary. It is a great pity that any thing like party feeling, private pique, and mutual sus picion, should be allowed,, to in terfere with the calm considera tion of matters touching the public weal. All those interested in the prosperity of the mining dis tricts agree in one thing, which is, that the present regulations, as a codc, are unsuited to the circumstances they were de signed to meet. The condemnation of the li cense tax has been universal; more especially on account of the manner in which it ...

YASS. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 10 February 1855
YASS. An interesting case of sly-grog-selling came before J. R. HARDY, Esq., and J. BLAKE, Esq. James Casey, a resident of this town, was called to answer to an information charging him with having illegally sold spirits, namely rum ; defendant denied the charge. Mr. Allman on opening the proceedings for the prosecution stated thatthe defendant had been previously convicted of a similar offence ; he would call William Druit and James Macdonald, who had been made constables ten days previous to this circum stance, and during that time they obtained the rum from the defendant. William Druit being sworn deposed: on the 12th of January he proceeded in com pany with Macdonald to defendant's house and called for a bottle of rum, and having tasted it, tendered two half crowns in pay ment, and received one shilling in change., Macdonald corroborated the last wit ness. Defendant then called Morgan Maher, who stated that Druitt and Macdonald had taken rum to him when he was working for defend...
MELBOURNE. February 6, 1855. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 10 February 1855
MELBOURNE. (KKOM OURSPKCIAL COUIlKSPONDKNr.) February 6, 1855. Since my last. Mr. Chapman, late an official in Van Diernen's Land, has come 'forward and entered the lists, in opposition to Mr. Ireland, for the representation of .South Bourke. Although a comparative Btranger to our colony, and behindhand in his canvass, such is the spirited manner in which some of the constituents are urging his claims, and the support of the Melbourne .presB, which seems enlisted in hia behalf, that his friends talk of his return as a cer tainty. Men of standing are found now, even at the eleventh hour, who are willing to devote their talent and energy to the service of the ?colony with which they are connected, and which promises, if safely guided through the present embarrassing period of her history, to confer much honour and re nown upon those who shall contribute to this issue; as she may one dav rank supe rior to any of Britain's dependencies. It has been a matter of surprise through out town ...

REPLY To a shabby-looking Falenti[?]e, from a very forward young Lady. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 10 February 1855
REPLY To a shabby-looking Falcnlive, from a very forward young Lady. Dkar MISS, I was never so startled before . * ' As last night, when the postman, 'who knocked at the door, I Inquired, as he held up a note to the light, ' Mr. Buggins live here ?' and the girl said, I ' That's right.' ^ j Well, in came the letter ; 'twas handed to me i Such a queer-looking package I never did | see : 'Twas a rumpled and crumpled and tumbled concern, Such as any respectable school-girl would i spurn. i First I looked at it well, and then turned it all over Now this side, now that-but in vain, to discover The writer ; so thought the best way to reveal Its contents, was at once to break open the seal. Apropos of the seal; it could hardly aspire To the name,-but I will not add fuel to fire By a further critique ; so leave you to guess What 1 thought of a letter in such a sad mess. Depict my astonishment. Miss, if you can, When I opened the note, and to read it began. I gazed on?, the page with unfeign...

ORIGINAL AND SELECTED. A VALENTINE. Hear the voice of my pleading, angelic Maria, Nor turn thy sweet visage awav; For within thy calm bosom I fain would aspire With Hymen's own torches to kindle a fire Which- Cupid as stoker - could never expire, If lit on St. Valentine's Day. I confess that I've loved you-Ah ! fondly, Maria ! Since I saw you in Melbourne last May For what man of feeling could fail to admire Those charms, in whose praise I could fill up a quire Of paper-large foolscap I mean-and not tire. That's more than most lovers can say. I've been told, and, in truth, 'tis no wonder, Maria, You've legions of beaux 'neath your sway ; But I trust what I write will not waken your ire. Of all 'whom your graces with passion inspire, There's none who regards you with senti ments higher Than, -Yours, with affection, . . m: A.

The Scrap look. "Quirks, Quips, Cranks, und Merry Gibes." ' STOCKS are firm,' as the thief said when he had his feet in them. WHY is a gunsmith's shop like a chicken | pot pie ?

Literature. ANCIENT EGYPT. (From the Home Circle.) THE foundation of civilisation in Egypt I was laid by settlers from the ancient I Ethiopian state of I\Ieroe. The earliest j government known to us is that of the j priests, who held the supreme power, ' until they were dispossessed of it by ! Menes, a chief of the soldiers. After him j came a long succession of kings, whose I history is unknown ; and Egypt had already counted sixteen royal dynasties, j when, under Thimaus, a horde of wander- I ing shepherds penetrated the country by the Isthmus of Suez, and conquered the Delta and Middle Egypt. Their kings, who formed the seventeenth dynasty, es tablished themselves at Memphis. It ap pears that it was to one of those kings that Joseph became minister. After a rule of more than two hundred years, the Hycsos (wandering shepherds) were ' driven out of Egypt by Touthmosis, king ! of Thebes, to the great joy of the Egyp tians, who hated their rule. This im- ! portant event took place ab...
