ORIGINAL POETRY. THE GENIUS OF AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Herald — 18 July 1860
ORIGINAL POETRY. &nbsp; THE GENIUS OF AUSTRALIA. BY HAMILTON HENDERSON. "—The crown lands are the people's lands : for they are merely held in trust by the crown for the people. Will the squatters, in their ignorance or their utter selfishness, attempt to deny so plain and simple a truth, or must we call upon the Genius of the Island to unriddle this Australian Sphinx for their satisfaction.

Evidonces of doubt appear to be gaining ground in many quarters, as to the ultimate success of the mighty rush, which if realised, will cause evils fearful to conteuplato; well therefore, will it be fotbr people to pause, and consider.

LECTURE AT GUNNING. (To the Editor of the Goulburn Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Herald — 21 July 1860
LECTURE AT GUNNING. (To the Editor of the Goulburn Herald.) Sin,-Thero is something in human nature that is ever craving after novelty. Hence it is that such a crowd of people are preparing to rush to Kiandra. Their farms, stores, and teams may look to them selves shortly; and deserted homesteads will give evidence of some men's greediness for gain and covetousness for gold. But, in the midst of the bustle and preparation for a flight, there is a rumour of better things than these. The Sydney Church Society has circulated its annual report, which ex hibits an extraordinary amount of toils undergone by zealous men of God. And, it is stated, that a lecture is to be given, in the Euglish church build ings, at Gunning, on Thursday, the 26th instant, to illustrate the missionary work of the clergy in the diocese of Sydney. Country friends will therefore do well to attend there, not later than noonday. Without doubt the physienl strength, equestrian capabilities, and moral courage, requir...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Herald — 21 July 1860
THE land bills laid before the country by Mr. Robertson are in many poihts objectionable; but we may rest asulred that it will be impos sible to secure a perfect measure with the present parliament. The chieffaulnt observa ble in the bills now under consideration is that tlley leave the question of the old squattings stillin state'ol obscurity. The new laws for the regulation of the occupancy of public lands, are to apply only to runs leased or promised to be leased since the 22nd February, 1858. But before that period an enormons quantity of land had been leased as squatting runs; and what is desirable to see is, not any viola tion of pledges, or any reckless attacks upon a valuable industrial interest, but a clear defini tion of the period when those runs will cease to belong to their present occupants, and re vert to the public. At present there is an understanding amongst most of the old lease holders to the effect that the' runs are in 6ffect their pIroperty in fee simple. We m...
THE POET AND THE SQUATTER. To the Editor of the Goulburn Herald. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Herald — 21 July 1860
THE POET AND ThIE SQUATTER. To the Editor of the Goulburn Herald. Sn.--So the shoe pinchesl The doggrel verses have taken effect, and a stone from my sling has smitten a squatter on the forehead. It is seldom I take an arrow from my quiver, but it is gratifying to me to know that my bolts, though shot at ran dom, over transfix a victim! I might have regretted the wound I have inflicted on your correspondent, who signs himself " An Original"-a very original-" Subscriber," but for the amusement his doleful epistlo has afforded me; and, although I do not wish to oppress a fallen foe, yet the literary curiosity to which it has given existence incites me to crow over my victory. " The Young Australian's Song"-rubbish or no rubbish-seems to be fraught with revolutionary dangers of the most terrific nature-at leastso seems to think your old " Original." You, Mr. Editor, are bound, he says, to be morally careful to exclude such terrible rhymes from your pages, lest they rouse up . whole hos...
SYDNEY. Wednesday, 4 p.m. [Newspaper Article] — Goulburn Herald — 21 July 1860
SYDNEY. LROM Ou05 OWN COR-KRPONDENT.I , Wednesday, 4 p.m. POLITICS are still stagnant, and the only slight indi cation of enduring life is given by the torolh-light meetings on the race-course, at which Mesasrs. Blo ron and others indulgo their audience with occa sionnl outponrings of the spirit on the subject of the land bill. It is very amusing to find one of the said audience writing to the papers, and strongly urging that the last meeting be adjourned until Monday week instead of next Monday, so that people may have time to get the better of the inllunzna, which is certainly not very favourable to the task of stlndi on the raze-course in a thick, chill fog at ton o'cldfir at night, and listening to the political views and economics of lMr. IBouran. In spite of theo land bill, however, the war question occupies most attention, and not without reason. Hlere is what one of tlhe numerous pamphlets recently published il Pl'ris says of the English and their sea dominion:-" Let France ...

COUNTRY NEWS. LACHLAN DISTRICT. (From our otn Correspondent.) WoATnun.-Wo have hadd no rain since the 26th of last May up to the present, except a light shower this morning, which moistened the ground. The weather since my last communication was truly delightful. ExcutoecnatcrsT on Runs.-A gentleman residing not a thousand miles from Goulburn, and who, by the-way, holds a very promenant position in the Legislative Assembly, has lately caused from twelve to fifteen thousead sheep, his property, to encroach and tresspass on the various runs from Bundaburra to Blond. To give you an idea how this gentleman is doing the thing, I may mention that those in charge of the sheep stated that they were going down the river, meaning the Lachlan, and so they did, for they wentdown that river about aiundred miles and re turned by the opposite side to the place from which they started. After remaining at this place for a few days they started for Bland, and strange to say, it took those in charge o...

Jack remained in office ten years, at the expiration of which hel had to succumb to Jack Slack, who is de scribed as of the same height as Tom Sayers. In a like period of time he had to yield to an immense man, named Jnem Stevens, called " the Nailer," who sold Lis birthright to George Meggs.
