THE SONG OFTHB HEN-PECKED HUSBAND. AIR. — LOVB NOT. I^ove not ! love not ! the thing you love may scold, May leave your shirts unwash'd, and your buttons allunsewn ; May turn a pure virago uncomfortably old, And spend your cash in taprooms, as if it were her own. . ' ? Love not ! love not. Love not ! love not ! that little roguish eye That beams on you so kindly, on some one else may beam ; That tongue that drops brown sugar whenever you are nigh, : May rattle like a railroad, or a cascade in a stream. Love not ! love not. Love not ! love.not! .those' tiny hands so white, May leave your house untidy— your , mutton over ,' . boiled, Your dumplings underdone, and your saucepans far from bright, Tour stockings all undarn'd, and your cheese and . butter spoiled. . .

MINING INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 21 April 1849

MINING INTELLIGENCE. Cockleshell Mine.— The miners have been sink ing rapidly during, the past week, in consequenqe of the badness of their beef. A few days 'ago .several large stones were raised, which, upon analysis, yielded a heavy per centage of lime along with the usual resi dum of gravel. Under one of the stones the miners found a mare's next with three eggs in it. The eggs bore a striking resemblance to flints. ' The dust' has been flying about the mine in all directions ever since the directors received their report from Sydney, and strange to say, this dust does not occasion the miners the slightest annoyance. It is commonly reported that this extraordinary dust has been raised by the old hands out of the new shareholders. Eldorado River.— Should this mine turn out as .favourably a3 the proprietor wishes it.to do, it will certainly make his fortune. If a' lode really exists^ and if the miners sink in the right direction, they are sure to get at it. It is generally supposed ...

PROPOSALS BY THE BOY IN THE DOG STAR. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Advocate — 21 April 1849

PROPOSALS BY THE BOY IN THE DOG STAR. 1 . It is proposed to enlarge the Market Place two inches and a half in height, in order that the lessees of the stalls, if tempted to dance the Polka, in winter time, for the purpose of promoting personal warmth, may not injure the noblest part of their bodies by strik ing against the roof. 2. It is proposed to enlarge the Market. Shed. 1 foot 6 inches, in width. In the present state of the building it is demonstrable that any boy who might inadver tently attempt to jump from one side 'to the other would infalliby receive a concussion of the brain .by coming in contact with the opposite wall. It is hoped, therefore, that the proposed alteration will effectually prevent the occurrence of such accidents. 3. It is proposed to erect five pillars in front of the Market Shed, emblamatical of the five orders of archi tecture. It is also proposed to. surmount these pillars with statues of the live commissioners ; the said statues to be hewn out of toug...
