ORIGINAL POETRY. DO NOT DESPAIR. Lines addressed to a Friend in a season of adversity. "At evening tide there shall be light." [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 July 1864

ORIGINAL POETRY. DO NOT DESPAIE. ¡Lines addressed to a Friend in a season of adversity. "At evening tide there shall ke light." Do not despair ! however drear The present is to thee- ; However dark may seem the veil - That hides futurity. Though clouds obscure the face of day, '. And turn it into night ; The sun shall shine again, dear friend At eve "there shall be light !" Do not despair ! though sorrows cast - Around thy pathway gloom-- [ Though faded hang hope's flow'rets, too, ? Which one time shed perfume. Yet, through thc gloom of darkness round, ? This record sldnes most bright And it should cheer thy drooping heart At eve "there shall be light !" Do not despair ! Life still has left Some treasures rich to thee, For faithful hearts still cling to thine In fond idolatry. And, oh ! such love round any lot Doth cast a halo bright ! Then, smiling, face the passing storm At eve " there shall be light !" j Do not despair ! and faith within Will cheer thee through the gloom-. E'en t...

BUSHRANGING, AND ITS BEWARD. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 July 1864

BUSKRANGING, AND ITS BEWABD. GARDINER has been convicted, and the power of the law has, though somewhat tardily, fully asserted itself. He has escaped the gallows, but it becomes a question whether the accumulated sentences he will have to undergo will not, physically speaking, be a worse punishment than would have been the sacrifice of his life. He has already lived half the term that we are accus- tomed to assign to human existence, and the thirty-two years of a penal servitude he will have to undergo will consume the other half. Physically, then, he gains nothing ; morally, how- ever, he may benefit, and if the repentance of which he speaks he sincere, he will have abundant opportunities of carrying it out, though not quite so comfortably as he had himself proposed to do in the quiet retreat he had selected, nor with such plea- sant associates as the female penitent he had chosen to share his hermitage. But the law has spoken. Twelve men, upon their oaths, have returned their ver...

MORGAN THE BUSHRANGER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 July 1864

MORGAN THE BUSHRANGER. THIS miscreant, emboldened by the impunity with which he has for months past robbed travellers and levied blackmail from the squatters in the Albury district, occasionally diversifying his exploits by burning down a woolshed or destroying a settler's account books, has added two murders to his crimes. On the 19th ult., he encountered Sergeant Carroll, of Wagga Wagga, about twenty miles from Albury, and several shots were exchanged without effect. During the afternoon of the same day he visited the Roundhill station, belonging to Messrs. Henty, and, after dismounting, put his horse into the stable. There were a number of men about the huts, whom the ruffian, with a revolver in each hand, ordered to go into the carpenter's shop, and after asking Mr. Watson, the superintendent, if the men got enough rations, ordered him to go and bring four bottles of grog, which were drank ; after carousing for hours, Morgan was about taking his departure, when Mr. Watson in- &a...

NOTES ON AUTHORS AND BOOKS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 July 1864

NOTES ON AUTHORS AND BOOKS; THE appetite for- statistical inquiry .is omnivorous. It cm embraces, and applies itself to all sorts of subjects-some of a useful character, and others more curious than useful. Of the latter sort is an inquiry into the social condition of women a? dependent upon the colour of their hair. We think we hear tilt reader almost involuntarily exclaim,.-What possible influence can the colour of a woman's hair, exert over her social des- tiny? And we deem the question worthy of a special answer. Faots¡ bearing on the subject we find to our: hand in a paper by Dr. John Beddoe, published in the second number of the Authr&pok><}icnl Review. Dr. Beddoe, while discharging his duties; as Physician to the Bristol Royal1 Infirmary, had opportunities. of noting the colour of the hair and the social condition of 737 women, and has placed on record, in the paper previously alluded to, the results of his inquiries. They are as follows,:-Red hair, 22; ...

(T was a dark and dismal little room in which I sat, comparing an abstract of title with a pule of voluminous deeds. I gave a yawn and a stretch, as I linished wading through a complicated marriage settlement, and throwing down the yellow old parch- ment, looked around me. But the scene on which my ©yes fell was no more attractive than the dry document itself. The walls lined with heavy law books and japanned boxes, bearing thc r.ames of many members of the aristocracies of birth and wealth, tho desks and tallies covered with dusty bundles of papers, thc smoke-stained dead wall, seen dimly through the dusky panes, were all alike gloomy.

THE FLOOD AT MAITLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 16 July 1864

: THE FLOOD AT MAITLAND. . : ; THE tendency of the Hunter River to overflow its banks has always been a source of anxiety to .the residents in its vicinity. Three times during the current year have, they suffered from those visitations, the most disastrous being that of the 14th; 15th, and 16th of June, which, though not so high as some of its predecessors, has been productive of more destruction of property and loss of life. During .the night of the 13th. the river overflowed its banks in the rear of Mr. Sawyer's, and rose steadily until Wednesday morning, carrying away the dykes which had been thrown up to stop its progress. During Tuesday the river continued to rise, the back-water increasing consider ably and covering the cultivated lands on all sides, the tops of the telegraph posts being the only things visible between the bridge and the hills bordering South Park and Dagworth. The Long bridge was covered; the waters spread over the Horse- shoe bend ; and in the lower part of ...
