CONCERT AT SWAN HILL. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 26 July 1878

CONCERT AT SWAN HILL. (FROOU O OWŽ COIRESPOiDENT.) The Presbyterian Church here suffers the too common lot of mortals, an in cubus, in shape of debt, which, under its present management, no steps has been taken hitherto to, endeavour to clear off. However, as it became of im portance that something should be done towards its partial liquidation, a concert for that object was given in the Presby terian Church on Wednesday evening, the 17th inst. It seems to be the fate of all entertainments held here, to meet with unpropitious weather, but in so good a cause who would not' brave the elements 7 the result being a crowded hous', those coming late being unable to obtain even standing room. The performance opened with a piano forte duet by Mrs Officer and Miss Ma thers entitled "Jupiter" whilch was brilliantly exeeuted,aud met with the ap plause it deserved.

MATTHEW BURNETT'S CRUSADE. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 26 July 1878

MA TTIiE W- BURNETT'S CRUSDE.. A. writer in the Starwell GChlronicke thus sums up under the above heading: There are some who consider that a general repudiation of anything at all allied to religious matters is a manly way of pro fessing individual thought and critical depth of judgment. Religious thought is rushed at with much the same jauntiness as poli tics, and the arguments thereat adduced leave the world in pretty much the same position as they found it. But if there are evils and vices amongst us which blossom with misfortune and degradation every day, and if these are being trampled on and killed, in ever so small a proportion, then the work is a good one, and the worker worthy of all encouragement and assistance. I think it requires a man of strong earnest ness of purpose to visit the home of the drinker-which is often, if not always, the home of the scorner-and to withstand re buff and insult, actuated by the one dis interested purpose of doing good. I refer in this allus...

SELECT POETRY. THE RUBICON. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 26 July 1878

SELECT, POETRY. STHE RUBICON. IMay wisdom directthee, dear England, In the part that thou hast to play, .1ar courage and honor uphold thee, 1 or thou treadest a difflicult way ; And thy sons far away in exile Are as anxiously awaiting the end As those who stand ready and eager Thy name and thy rights to defend. It would ill become us who are absent, And safe from the perils of war, To urge thee to enter a struggle, While we fight with our tongues from afar. Nay; if peace may be kept with honor, We pray thee unsheath not thy blade; For the world cannot misunderstand thee Thy lion was never ArnfAm. But we feel that the time is approaching When thy strength must take arms for thy pride; Even now thou art donning thy armor And girding thy sword to thy side; And our hearts though they beat for thy glory . No fear of the future can hold; For we know thou'rt mighty in battle, And strong with the sinews of gold. -From the "San Fiancisco News Letter."
