ORIGINAL POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 1 June 1867

ORIGINAL POETRY.   We are enabled, this week to present our reader with something unusual—viz., two pieces of original poetry by local authors. Perhaps some will be inclined to think, "with a touch of irony," that the compositions are "unusually original," However, we think them not devoid of merit, for they contain good sound sense, even if not pre- sented in accurately measured cadences. EVENINGTIDE AT BACCHUS MARSH. The shades of evening fell so swiftly sweet O'er Bacchus Marsh, our sweet and fertile vale; The breeze was balmy as when two lovers meet To whisper forth their love-endearing tale. The distant mountains stood towering to the sky ; Their golden peaks had faded from the view; Light's ling'ring streaks were all that met the eye, Struggling in vain with evening's darkening blue. No din, nor clamour, from earth's busy throng   Broke in upon the musing pensive ear ; The village bell did its evening notes prolong, And Christians met the Gospel news ...

A DIGGER'S SONG. TO AUSTRALIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 1 June 1867

A DIGGER'S SONG. TO AUSTRALIA. In thy hills and valleys, and long-hidden streams, There is gold to be found, and glittering gems. A man that will hope and patiently toil, Will get his reward on Australia's soil. Thy treasures are free to the rich and the poor;   Strange freaks hast thou with thy gifts to be sure. But a man that will work, be he ever so humble Need never long want, nor yot need he grumble. A man's independent on Australia's soil ; He need not to beg for permisaion to toil. With line, pick, and pegs, he can mark off a claim, And no tyrant dare say, " Get off my domain !" Since I came to thy shore—yes, let it be told, I've expended my labour in digging for gold, The goddess of fortune has smiled upon me ! For my labour, three thousand pounds she gave me ! Australia ! Australia ! My blessing on thee ! Australia ! thou hast been kind unto me ! In Scotland, a serf, I begged leave to toil, But am now independent on Australia's soil ! Come, all ye toilers on Gr...

ROAD TO BARRY'S REEF. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 8 June 1867

]ROAD TO BARRY'S REEF. T ?o he diltor q' th Etipress. SIR--Allow uIe, through.the columus of your journal, to call the atitotion of tho Bahllan Shire Council to the state of the road leading froni the bridge crossing tho Lerderderg to Barry's rlef. ''ho road in question is so stoop and narrow that it is almuost impossible for Ra good staunch horse to take up an empty dray, especially after a shower of rain. Still, the Council has noveor done any. thing to prevent an accidont--auch as both horse and dray being capsisod over the hill. I would suggest that the Council have logs fixed, or a fonce orcoted, on the outsido of the road, from the bridge to a point known as. Yorkly's, in order to prevent in accidont. Thero are a number of logs lying on the spot, which could easily be placed in position on the lowh side of the road. A VoIoC FROM WIJmraIn's GuL8rY. Junoe 5i, 1807.
