The Golden Harp. MAIDENHOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 6 March 1851

Tho Golden Harp. MAIDENHOOD. Maiden J with' the meek, brown eyes, In whose orb ii shadow lies, Like the dusk in evening skies ! Thou whose locks outshine the sun Golden tresses, wretthod in one, As tlie braided streamlets run ! Standing with reluctant feet, Where the brook and river meet, Womanhood and childhood fleet ! Gazing, with a timid glance. On the brooklet's swift advance On the river's broad expanse ! Deep and still, that gliding stream, Beautiful to thee must seem, As the river of a Dream ? When bright angels, in thy vision, Beckon thee to fields Elysian ? Seest thou shadows sail ing by, As the dove, with startled eye, Sees the falcon's shadow fly ? Then why ith indecision, Hearest thou voices on the shoro, That our ears perceive no more, Deafened by the'cataract's roar? Ov thou child of many prayers ; Life hath quicksands-lifo'hath snares Î Caro and age come unawares ! Like tho swell of some sweet tune, Morning rises into noon, May glides onward into June. Childhood is th...

COUKT oí' REQUESTS.-A TOUCH o jr NATURE.-Thia was a suit by Mr. Murphy,, an artjst, to recover wages for copying a portrait of Mr. Samuel Lyons, jnuior, upara an order of Mr. Samuel Lyons, senior. The reality of the transaction was not disputed,, but the charge, ¡is mudo out by the plaintif!, was strongly objected to, on account of ha exorbitancy. The amount claimed was . «¡él ls., and the amount offered by Mr. Lyons, as being justly due, was 10s. The plaintiff rested his chum to thc guinea on the fact that Mr. Nicholas, the miniature painter, and who executed the portraiture ia-, question, made it a practice to charge aa much for copying ns for taking' alikeness.

THE EMPIRE. FRIDAY, MARCH 7,1851. LAND AND LABOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 6 March 1851

THE EMPIRE. FRIDAY, MARCH 7r 1851. LAND AND LABOUR. TUE goddess of Dulness could not have found a better pillow upon which to re- pose, than the Colonial Land and Immi- gration question. Ever and anon forced to quit her haunt by the sharp goad of some disappointed squatter, or the equally energetic thrustof suinesagaciousquidnunc, she returns to it again with renewed zest, after the temporary interruption of her slumbers. The rest of the goddess has of late been much broken. The anti-transporta tionist cudgel has been vigorously ap- plied. The native dog even has been in- troduced to arouse the divinity. And last, not least, our worthy neighbour, Mr.Mort, has made a more energetic effort to dis- turb the reign of silence. Now into the first two of these discus- sions we have neither leisure nor inclina- tion to enter. Upon the iirst indeed dis- cussion is unnecessary, and the second is too flimsy to occupy attention for an in- stant. Mr. Mort's scheme merits one word in passing. Mr....
