HIE LAMENT OF A SHOALHAVEN POTATOE GROWER'S DAUGHTER. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 18 August 1856

TIIE LAMENT OF A SHOALUAVKtf POTATOE GROWER'S DAUGHTER. v -a hear while I listen of days that are gone, I listen, and think, how. our riches are fiown ; I mourn and I grieve how short was their stay, While I shudder and weep at Shoalhaven's decay. Time was when I' moved with stately gait, T ? -When my father was rich, and I thought myself great, 'When I looked upon all with a proud beaming eye, , Now changed, alas ! from a smile to a sigh, I had gow-gaws and ribbons with pleuty of drc83. Ne'er dreaming of penury, change or distress ; v Though outwardly (?ombre, no sorrow I knew; I wildly spent gold ; ah, how quickly it ilew. 'With a beautiful filly and plenty of gear, 3 sported and rode through the length of the year. ' 1 had Baddle and bridle, and a dear little whip, ? All whalebone and catgut with a silvery tip. The beaux were all gallant, the belles were divine, And nightly I went 10 the parties and wine ; - . There marriages, birthdays, and christenings, indeed, JJemoved tbeir s...

"AN INTERESTING LITTLE BAROUCHE." Punch finds the following in the Sydney Morning Herald of the 2nd instant:— [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 18 August 1856

AN INTERESTING LITTLE BAR-PUCIIE.' Punch finds the following in the Sydney Mornir-g Herald of the 2nd instant : — ' The Northern Gold Fields.— r An interesting little baronche. has just heeij. issued by Woolcott and Clarke, called a 'Guide to the Northern Gold Fields,, by an Old Bushman.' It contains a map of the various routes to. the different gold mines; a list of articles required for the road ; hints for the road ; the route to the Rocky Hiver Diggings, starting from Ray niond Terrace through Stroud ; hints fer the preservation of health, &c., &c.' The Sydney people appear to have a. nomenclature of their own. In Long Acre they would speak of a barouche having been built by Messrs. So-and-so, in place of hav ing 'just been issued'; nor would even the pennya liners' on the Morning Post think of particularizing the small maps and pamphlets which liad been placed in the pockets, of the vehicle. Then, again, Punch cannot recog nise the propriety of denominating a ba...

THE LAW OF MASTERS AND SERVANTS. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 18 August 1856

THE. LAW OF MASTERS AND SERVANTS; (From the Empire.) The debate in the Legislative Assembly last evening, on the motion for the second reading of the bill for con tinuing the Masters arid Servants' Act, was one of much' interest, and elicited, in a rather remarkable- manner, the peculiar habits of thought and the social individualities of honourable members. There were two features of the debate, both noteworthy and praiseworthy, which com pensated for the absence of strong argument and superior^ eloquence. By nearly all, a feeling of earnestness was' infused into the question, and, with nearly all, a strong , desire to protect' the rights of all parties concerned, was avowed. We have always opposed the injustice perpetrated by: the present Masters and Servants' Act, the policy of con--: tinuing, which is, in our opinion, equally indefensible, with its abstract principles, Mr. Faucett and oilier members, as well' as the honourable mover of the amend-, ment, pointed out, with much fo...

THURSDAY. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 18 August 1856

Thursday.. .' Leave was given for the introduction of a bill to make more effectual provision tor the construction and regulation of railways. Mr. Donaldson moved that the resolutions of the House, passed; on the 12th instant relative to the position of the judges as mera bers of the Legislative Council, be rescinded. After .explaining his view of the circumstances which led to the former division, he entered at length into the question of the appointment of the judges, which he defended aa expedient ..and proper. He quoted, precedents, from Parliamentary history in support of the present motion for rescinding the former yote, .believing as he did that that vote was premature and ill-considered, and if allowed to, remain on their records .would have the effect of. degrading the judges. A debate ensued in whieh Mr. Plunkett, Mr. Piddington,- Mr,..., Forster, and Mr. Cowper spoke against the motion ; and Mr. Gar land Mr. Suttor, Mr. Bowman, The- Attorney General, and Mr,.

THE SALE OF THE PUBLIC LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 18 August 1856

THE SALE OF THE PUBLIC LANDS. On TL'flPRSDAY' next, this morapntous Bubjecfc will come under the consideration of the Legislative Assembly. Jp i$ proposed by the Ministry to re-enact the present unsatisfactory laws relating to the sale of the unalienated lands, thus djsappointiqg the hopes that have been so generally entertained that a new, and more comprehensive and liberal system.. would have been introduced. To tho vast number of persons that were bouyed up with this hope it is of little consequence whether the proposed perpetuation of the present unsatisfactory system, is dictated by the incompetency of tho Ministry to deijl with this subject in stjch a nianner as its im portance demands ; or vvhethgr tho step is taken at the sugges tion, pr under the influence, of a party to whose interests the introduction of any rpform would be inimical. We would the more particularly call the attention of the inhabitants of these districts to the proposed measure, from tho fact of their bein...

LATER ENGLISH NEWS. The mail by the Red Jacket ha9 placed us in possession of English news, np the 20th May. There is no important, and very little interesting intelligence, communicated, The Palmerston Ministry is firm, and the country seems, on tlip whole, satisfied with tho terms of the peace. It is rumoured that Sir Henry Bulwer is to assume the Governorshirt of Victoria, but as another report assigns the post to Mr. Villier3, little dependence can be placed upon the statement.

Great diligence must be exercised this month in pruning young trees before they begin to shoot, because the shoot ing season commences, here as m i'.ngland, on the nrst of September, .-There is nothing like activity in this opera tion.. If you intend having boiled mutton on a Sunday, ssw a few turnips not later than the previous Thursday, If you are a married man, your wife will do all the sowing while you cut ab^ut and get some cuttings ; every tailor knows that. Plant gooseberries ten feet apart, prepare the holes with a corkscrew and cover them up with lime to protect them from the slugs who are instantly destroyed by the acid of the lime juice. Rhubarb seeds may be planted closer and a little magnesia substituted for the lime. These brief remarks are the result of prolonged reflection and lengthened experience, and ar...

( From the Argus, July 4,,) We have occasionally furnished precedents of the distinct recognition of the agricultural interest by the Governments of other countries as forming part of their administrative functions 5 and although we are jealous of anv interference which might affect the vigour or in dependence of private enterprise, yet we believe, circum stanced as this colony is and as it will continue to be for some time, it is the duty of the Government to encourage any disposition to embark in any useful enterprises tending towards the increase of our producing capacity. We, therefore, some time since, suggested the formation of a ' Board of Agriculture' in connection 'with the Government ; and we shall now endeavour to explain what we think the duties of such a body should be. . The. Board should be entrusted with considerable discretionary powers, and be responsible directly to the Legislature for its proceedings. A...
