The rippling ware* that kissed my happy hand, Tbe naves with laugliiug music iu their flow, Badly I watch them o'er the broadening sand; But X am very tired-let them go. Too long my chafing pride baa stooped to strive To fan the embers into life again; No failh can keep the flickering flauie alive. The liugering vigil is but lingering pain. Too late the voice assumes a tender tone, Too late tbe lip in loving uiiln is di-est: The tide is out; the last faint spark is gone. And I am very tired-let me rest, Just tired-neither angry nor ashamed: Bach wretched mood has fret its feverish hour j Let the pale bud lie withered and un claimed Dead, or to gracious sun or pitying flower. Percbanoe some little lile may linger yet In tbe crushed stem and withered leaves we see; But what avails repentance ...

Wo congratulate the initiators of these liberal land regulations, as well as the colony at large, on the suc cessful results of their legislation. That a liberal land policy has been long regarded in Queensland as a desidera tum, is patent to all, but as the Act just past completely revolutionises all ante cedent land measures, it is not surpris ing that considerable delay has taken place in passing this Act, in consequence of members wishing to thoroughly analyse its numerous clauses, as also to learn the opinions of their consti tuents on the principal innovations. As we are only in possession of the bare fact that the Bill has passed, we must necessarily defer comment thereon until it reaches as, when wc shall give our readers a synpOBis of ...
