Six blacks so hold attacked Quirk's fold, And rushed out twenty sheep; But gallant Mick, so brave and quick, His pistol-trigger drew, Which made the foe off hopping go, Swift as a Kangaroo. One daring black came crawling back, ..And stood behind the tree, Then flung a spear, which passed quite near, Bold Quirk, the shepherd's knee; But Ryan smart, from bed did start, -And fired his deadly gun, Which caused the black to turn his back,. And like a red'shank run. SHut-keeper Pat discharged a shot: of heavy deadly slugs. One foe being slain, he fired again And bored poor Bnmbo's bead; :" But till he died, he boldly cried *" Borack me quamby dead." The foe being fled, we hied to bed, But scarce began to doze,' When Ryan's whelp did loudly yelp, W- hich broke our slghht.repose ; Pat ran to see...

[To the iLdLr of tic WLLI-Am rOws COoIcLE.] Sir,-It has been my good fortune to be come possessed of a -rather musty bumdle' f original writings, evidently composed by a man of considerable ability, if not genius, though it would appear from some of the productions that he was of rather an eccentric turn of mind. I have gone through the collection with as much care as. if I had been bringing to light the riches of a gold mine. I am satisfied that many of the poetic productions would well re-. pay the perusal of an intelligent mind, and with your permission I would weekly dish'up a selection from them for the. benefit of your, by no means unintellectual readers. -Who this " ooer of the muses" was wil. likely for ever remain a conjecture. Judging by his lucubrations, I would take him to be one self, rather than college,-taught,-,-one cast upon his own resources at an early age, who struggled hardly,.but 'arduously, against the tide of adversity.
