Gipps Land Guardian, Friday, 16th November, 1855. THE PEOPLE'S DUTY. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 16 November 1855
&lt;^tpps 2£antr Friday, 16th November, 1855. THE PEOPLE'S DUTY. It is of little avail to complain of the imbecility or follies of a government, if we make no effort to remedy the evils un der which we labor. The people should do their duty and then the governing1 powers would see the necessity for activity and sound legislation. Every man should feel some interest in the mode of government under which he exists; and in a young- and rising- colony like Victoria, every man's endeavour should ;be to have a wise, pro gressive, and healthful system of legisla tion. The foundation of all government should be the gradual development of the resources of a country, and the happiness of its people.: Every facility should be given to progress, and all obnoxious and injurious laws should be omitted; while thepeople.: shoulduse; ;their>. .political, in fluence to secure all these things by return? ing Members to represent their welfare and interests -in the .local legislature.

PROSPECTS OF GIPPS LANd. [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 16 November 1855
PROSPECTS OF GIPPS LANTV [communicated.] •As a 'corollnryi to what lias: appeared in the Gipps Land Guardian respecting- our. New" Constitution,- it may not be out of. place to ■ say a few words this week about our own fair land, and the position we are destined to occupy under the new order of thing's, h Young-.; as the:Colony of Victoria confessedly; is, Gipps Land is still much younger—indeed, to the great bulk of the 300,000 inhabitants of Victoria it is literally a terra incof/nita, an unknown land. ; And yet, of all the districts into'which Victoria is divided, scarcely one equals, and not one surpasses it, in the beauties of nature, in romantic sceneiy, in salubrity of', climate, or in richness and fertility of soil. How such a land could ^iave remained so long-'• comparatively unknown and. unappreciated, in the midst of enterprising- Ang-lo Saxons, is a problem which it would: be difficult to solve. At leng-th, however, lig-ht beg-ins to dawn, the tcuth. respecting-. Gipps L...

CORRESPONDENCE.. A TRIP TO WELSHPOOL. , , To the Editor of the Gipps Land Guardian. Sin.—That " Truth is powerful and will ulti mately prevail," in defiance of wilful or inadverten t misrepresentation, I sincerely believe. .Nor is there any means so,likely to' bring about a con summation of the above maxim as the agency of the.press;, ■IJinve, therefore,'-Mr. Editor to solicit a small space mvyour, Journal, to reply to a letter in your last number signed " William Harvey," and as my former epistle to " Traveller" appears to have aroused anger, let me hope that the few remarks I have now to make upon, such portions of Mr. Harvey's letter as seem to , require reply, may produce a contrary effect, and act, if I may use the expression, like oil 011 troubled waters. The settlement at the Old Port was originally broken up by the Crown Land llegulations re quiring the payment of a £10 license, for the occupation of a few yards of sandy soil, and the : consequence was, that the residents th...
POETRY. A 'SILLY' SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 16 November 1855
POETRY. A ' SILLY' SONG. '0 heart, my heart!' she said, and heard His mate the black-bird calling, While through the sheen of the garden green May-rain was softly falling Aye softly, softly falling; The butter-cups across the mead Made sunshine rifts of splendor, The round snow-bud of the thorns in the wood Peeped through their leafage tender, As the rain came softly falling. '0 heart, my heart!',she said, and smiled, ' ■ ; ' There's not a tree of the valley, Or a leaf, I ivis, which the rain's soft kiss Freshens in yonder alley, Where the drops keep ever falling; ' There's not a&lt;foolish flower in the grass, '"iv Or bird through the woodland calling, &lt; w.:t So glad again of the coming of rain, • As I of these tears now falling, These lwppy tears down falling!' „ ' ■' Chambers's Journal.

England's Mineral Wealth—On tlie authority of Mr. Robert Hunt, Government keeper of Mineral Records, tlie following statement is regarded as an approximation, very near the truth, of the annual value of our mineral wealth:— Coal, as raised at the pits, £11,000,000; iron, £10,000,000; copper, £1,500,000; lead, £1,000,000; tin, £400,000; silver, £210,000; zinc, £10,000; salt, clays, &c.,^ £500,000: giving tlie enormous total of £24,620,000.
