THE LUBRA'S WAIL. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 2 April 1864
THE LUBKA'S WAIL. [Paraphrased, with very little change or expan sion, from a funeral song heard by the Author many years ago, near Coruna, Port Lincoln District.] Thou art gone to the isles of the dead, my child That gleam through a mist of spray ; On the Bed-bills* wing, o'er the waters wild, Thy spirit hath floated away. And the fount of mv hnsnm ir fl/Mrs in vain ? - Sad plenty in sorrow's dearth ! Like a summer tempest of sudden rain That slakes not the sun-bound earth. I had sewn me an hood of Turo skin, Thy pleasant burden to bear ; Warm, and woolly and soft within, That thou might'st nestle there. Ah me ! that labour is all o'erthrown, ? I toiled but to regret ; And the nimble creature that skin did own, Why is it not living yet ? Yet, though thou be cold— from place to place We'll journey together ah wile: Fain would I deem thine infant face Yet at my back did smile ! And when corruption has changed thy browg, In the shadow of huge gum trees I'll hang thee aloft 'mid feathe...
NEWS OF THE MONTH. (CONDENSED FOR THE OCCASION, APRIL 1ST) [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 2 April 1864
NEWS OP THE MONTH. (Condensed for the Occasion, April 1st ) Gawler this month, tis said, has been unusually gay. And, first on the list* St. George's Church was opened on Easter Day « The Bishop in the morning preached, and of course preached very well ; Arid the two succeeding service^ the Rev. Can. Russell. The largest concourse ever seen on the Park Lands on one dav. Was that that went to take tea there upon last Easter Monday — The tent thrice filled would scarcely hold the multitude at tea. And ladies fair presided there, and a Bishop stopped to see. At night two lectures followed, in the room at the Oddfellows' Hall, And a glorious smash and squeeze there was, while some couldn't get in at all. The Bishop was rather prosy— but what kept the meeting alive Was Gawler's tale of India under the sway of Clive. The Churchwardens Dixon and Harris, it cannot be denied, Had every reason on that day to be well satis fied. As for the Barossa Cricket Club, we wish we could say the same ; ...
THE ALABAMA. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 2 April 1864
THE ALABAMA. Humors were afloat about tbe middle of last month that the notorious Alabama was off Cape Otway. The report caused considerable consternation on 'Change and irightened the Federal skippers now in Port into fits, and, we believe, the Yankee Consul struck the stars and stripes, and prepared to make for the hills the moment he heard of it- For ourselves, however, whatever anxiety we may have felt was instantly allayed, when we undeistood that our Government, -with that prompti tude which characterizes all its actions, (having issued peremptory orders to pro visoin the Blanche with a fresh stock of bread and cheese and Colonial XXX,) had instructed the Naval Officer of the Pro vince to take with him the Collector of Customs, the Nautical S.M. & J.P., the President Marine Board, the Harbor Mas ter-iri-Chief, tbe Marine Major of Volun teers, the Coroner, and all the other officials, covered by his cocked hat, and proceed immediately to the scene where this daring crui...
REPRESENTATION OF BAROSSA. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 2 April 1864
REPRESENTATION OF BAROSSA Since our last issue several gentlemen have been named as candidates for the representation of this district, amongst others, Mr. J. Angas, Mr. T. Reynolds^ and Mr. B. Randall; all of whom, we believe, have declined to stand. We have not heard that our suggestion to the Ger man settlers has vet had any effect, but we cannot refrain from again urging them to do justice to themselves and put forward a representative of thiar own nationality. We know several Germans of influence here, who would be a credit to any repre^ sentative assembly, and who would carry with them the feelings of the whole dis trict, if they could be persuaded to come forward. But,*even if they refused from the want of spare time or other causes- could they not put forward one of their own nation living in Adelaide, who could devote time to their interests. The English portion of the electors have been seeking in xown ior tneir representative — wny not the German? At this time, when in Eu...

THE GREAT G. H. S. TRIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 2 April 1864
THE GREAT G. H. S. TRIAL. So the great trial is over at last — ^the pro cess of law that was to have driven the publisher, editor, and all the contributors to the Bumfvp into the Insolvent Court, has passed over our devoted heads, and ?we find ourselves — minus one dulling, — and a few pounds to our attorney and the barrister who honored us by his pleading ; ??whilst our opponent, who was to have rivalled his compatriot St. Patrick, and have swept all such noxious reptiles as the Bunyip from tne sacrea precincts ui mo ?adopted home— the Gawler Selfsupport inff Hospital— will probably find that a suit of law is rather an expensive amuse ment, and will probubly learn to appreci ate the old adage, that 'He who plays at bowls must expect rubs!'- It is astonishing what unanimity there ?sometimes is in the decision of courts and their estimate of character and its injury^: this perhaps was never better illustrated, .than in the present case. About a year ago the same complainant sued an o...
