Tao Blina Man's aria«. j Wlieu first beloved in vanished hours, Tile blind man sought thy love to gain, They said thy cheek was bright as flowers ' New freshened by the summer rain ; They said thy movements, swift yet soft, Were such as make the winged dove Seem as it gently soars aloft, The image of repose aud love. They told me, too, an cager crowd Of wooers, praised thy beauty rare ¡ But that thy heart was not too proud, A common love to meet or share. Ah ! thine wa* ncithor pride nor scorn. But in thy coy and virgin breast. Dwelt preference, not cf passion born, The love,that hath a holier rest. Days came and went, thy stop I heard Pause frequent, os it passed me by ; Days came and went, thy heart was stirred, And auswered to my stifled sigh ; And thou didst make au humble choice, Content to be the blind man's bride, *Who loved thee for thy gentle voice, And owned no joy on earth beside. -And well by thy sweet voice I knew, (Without the happiuess of sight,) Thy years as yet were...

PARALYSIS.-Catherine Naughton, an antiquated frail one, stood charged by an officious guardian of the peace, with being drunk on the previous night, using obscene language, setting both law and morality at defiance, and pitching the police and all that took part with them, to thc warmest corner she could think of. Tu her defence poor Kitty stated, that she was affected with a para- lytic stroke in her right shoulder which prevented her from being able to raise her baud to her mouth without it held something light. Alderman Allen being of opinion that water would be a cooler be- verage than rum or gin, recommended a sojourn meut at Woolloo...

Boxing: [Newspaper Article] — Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Reviewer — 21 March 1846
. Boxing:. THE following charge to the Grand Jury of an English County, was delivered by Lord Chief Justice Best, in the year 1827. We recommend its dispassionate perusal to tile pseudo-moralizing- set, who, without reflection, condemn one of the most truly national and ennobling sports of the British race. At ll oclóckj after the usual ceremony of reading the proclamations, and swearing the Grand Jury, the Lord Chief Justice delivered a charge to the latter of considera- ble length. He commenced by observing, that there never was a time when the ad- ministration of justice is this country re- quired the assistance of able and enlighte- ned men more than the present, and he was therefore much pleased to have the honour of addressing 20 gentlemen of such great respectability as those who now composed the Grand Jury for this county. The calendar, he was sorry to inform them, was much larger than they had been accustomed to consider; and most sorry he was to ob- serve, that the increas...
