STRATHALBYN. Strathalbyn, October 31. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 3 November 1866

STRATHALBYN. ] From our own Correspondent^ Strathalbvn, October 31. On Monday evening Mr. Townsend delivered his lecture — ' The Successful Merchant ' — at Mr. Colman's store, in aid of the Church at England Harmonium Fand. There was not as large an attendance on the occasion as I am sure there would have been had there been time for giving more publicity to Mr. Townsend's visit. The lecture was frequently applauded by tile audience, as also were Messrs. Evans. PaUridee. and Cornelius, who contributed to the evening's attraction by rendering-, with their usual taste and ability, both \Tocal aud instrumental music. The weather yesterday was most oppressive^ a severe hot wind blowing all the day with no lack of Australian dust. To-day the weather has been clear, with a bright and hot sun. This evening heavy clouds gathered fast and thick, and the atmosphere {highly surcharged with electricity) sent forth for a considerable time, and almost without int- r mi-sfon, ihe most vivid lightn...

Yet it was not' to sink out of sight in an' altogether quiet and obscure manner ; the whole Assembly was summoned to witness its final dis appearance from the scene, and all responded to tho call Lut the members for Vic oria and Mr Smith, member for the Port- Flinders wa6 not represented, as the election is still undecided or the result un declared.

POETRY. THE GRANDFATHER'S PET. This is the room where sbe slept, Only a year ago — Quiet, and carefully swept, Bliuds and cuitatns like snow.

But tho crowds roll on, and the streets are drear, And the world seems hard with a bitter doa-n, And Effie einginp is elsewhere — and heie Is the little white rose of a room. Why, if she stood just there, As she used to do, With her long light yellow hair, And her eyes of blue — If she etood, I say, at the edge of the bed, And ran to my side with a living touch, Though I know she be qaiet, and buried, and dead, I should not wonder much. For she was bo young, you know — Only seven years old — And she loved me, loved me so, Though I was grey and old. And her face was so wise and so sw...
