LAUNCH OF THE G. V. BROOKE LIFEBOAT. The lifeboat which was subscribed for by the friends and admirers of the late giftid G. V. Brooke, as a testimony of his worth, and an appropriate memorial of his untimely fate, was launched on Thursday, 20th Sep tember, at the dockyard of Messrs. Bewley and Webb, Northwall, Dublin.

At half-past 2 o'clock, the com pany having assembled around the boat, ivbich was gaily dressed with flags, the proceedings were opened by Mr. Anson, President of the Dramatic College, who, in a short and ap propriate speech, described the construction of the boat, and .the circumstances which have led to her being placed on the Irish shores.

OLD BOGIES. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 1 December 1866
OLD liOGIES. [By Old Boomerang, in the Sydney MaiL] AOT long ago, I overheard a mother thus ad dress her little daughter, who had strayed from her side, and with childish curiosity was pee.rj Ing info an open doorway. ' Come hither, Minnie ! you ' little monkey ! Do you hear me, Miss ? Old Daddy Longlegs will catch you in a minute, if vou dou't mind what I eay to you. Here he comes ! My goodness ! he'll catch you !' The dread of Daddy Long legs had an immediate effect upon Minnie's short legs, and away she ran towards her mother, who seemed much pleased at the i manifest alarm of her oiikpriug, and at the success of her own silly expedient. I do not refer to that occurrence on account of its novelty, for unfortunately it is not un- | common to hear mothers call their children names, even loss complimentary than ' little j monkeys,' and to consign thtiin to powers mere j terribly real than ' Daddy Lon^log*.' I wish j to inuke a few remarks on the folly and dinner I of exacting obedie...

The soft-veiling last, the bright beaming eye, Tht pearly teeth, or die sweet ruby lip, Parting, as eager lift/a promise to sip ; The noble exjtanse of llie brow of snow, The skin so transparent, tbe azure flow Of the graceful veins in rich tracery, Or tiic voice's entrancing and rich melody. Charming — enchanting — as all these may be, Oh, they arc not dearest to love or to me ! Nor the dark, smooth eyebrow's pencill'd line, Nor The lock's rich wave, nor the silky shine, Nor the delicate shape of the graceful head.

Lovely — enchanting— though ail ti:ese may be, No ! they are not dearest to love or to me I But the changing hue of the unschooled cheek, Which, true to the soul's deep emotions, will s...

THE OUTLET OF THE RIVERS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 1 December 1866
THE OUTLET OF THE RIVERS. There is something more to be said about the revived absurdity of extending the Kapunda Railway to the Murray. We have shown ia our last Greek's article that the existing 5S miles of rail from Kapunda to Port Adelaide is worked at a loss to the community of 3 .7 per cent, on the total cost of construction, and that even with that loss the goods charges are too high to enable anything like the generality of Northern farmers to use the line. And certainly it is a reasonable deduction that if this unsatisfactory position results from a line 58 miles in extent, its disadvantages will be proportionately increased, as regards the through traffic, especially when 1 18 miles have to ba constructed and worked instead of 58. But this is only one side of the question. Of course the object to be gained is the retention and development of the Murray and Darling trade, and the Legislature ought undoubtedly to concentrate their expenditure upon whichever route presents th...

INTERCOLONIAL NEWS. VICTORIA. The YncETABDS. — Reports from the vineyards, according to the Oeelor-g Advertiser, are highly satisfactory; and at this early season, thongh too soon to predict a fine crop, the appearance of tbe vines promises an over-abundance of grapes.

The pedestrian is the ' Tarrangower Novice,' and when he started, at half- past 5 o'clock on Friday afternoon, long odds were given that he would not perform the feat. However, he went away very well, and having walked the first twenty-five miles in four and a half hours, he tock a rest of an hour between- each remaining twenty-five miles. He corn completed the match, which wa...
