SELECT POETRY. THE PAST. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 7 January 1840
SELECT POETRY. THE PAST. I he past I the past I Ohl what a tide Does memory pour upon the hbrea t Vitat visions rise, what phantoms gliJe, To fill the brain and break the rest. Thouglh few the waves of life may he, That shall have ebbed, yet all will find Mlore rugged strands than golden sands, More weeds tllan pearls are lelft behind. 'The pastll the pastl! How many a one Comes back again in that sqd word; The cherished form for ever gone, The voeice of ralic now unheard. It brings lte'haunts of childhood's days, Our hours of sport, our shuwts of mirth; -Our schoolinates and one. hours eof play, When paradise was linked with earth. "No matter were those haunts might be, In city streets orianountain spot; Loung years may roll, but yet the soaul Will hold them loved andtuoforgot. They are remembered as a flower Of richest tint, its bloom gone by; 'Or as the string of aw ertest poser, That broken wakes the min re's seigh.

Original Correspondence. ARITHMETIC. To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. [Newspaper Article] — Australasian Chronicle — 7 January 1840
Original Correspondence. &nbsp; ARITHMETIC. &nbsp; "To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. Sir,-Being one of the latest arrivals in your colony, I beg to ask if the " Schoolmaster is abroad" here? My reason for asking this question is,that in taking up the Sydney Gazette of Satur- day last, I found in the leading article the follow- ing solution of an arithmetical question--7 + 7 3=4; and in the notice to correspondents, the following is given as an irresolvable problem- 19 19 20ths 19 19-20ths=? If this, Mr. Editor, be the state of education among your men of letters, I fear much your people are not yet fit to manage their own affairs.-I am, sir, your obedient servant, DISCIPULUS.
