SCOTCH SUTERSTITIONS. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 30 May 1862

Sc?rc CuitrusTITrTot s.-.Scotland wan always fore most in superstitions. Her wild hills and lonely t?ls seemed the fit haunting-places for all mysterious powers; and long after spirits had tied, and ghosts had been laid in the level plains of the south, they were to he found lingering about the glens and glades of Scotland. Very little of graceful fancy lighted up the gloom of those popular superstitions. Even Elfame. or Faerie, was a place of dreaded anguish, where tihe devil ruled heavy-hannded and hell clainmed its yearly tithe, rather than the home of thi and beauty and petulant gaiety as with other nnti.os, and the beautiful white ltaicslike thie German Elle woman, had more of bale than bliss as their portion to scatter among the sons of men. Spirits like the goblin Gilpin Ilorner, full of malice and unholy cunning-like grewsome brownies, at times unutcu terably terr'fec, at times grotesque and rude, but then more satyr-like then elflsh--like MaIy Moulachs, lean and hrirv-armed...

LTo the Editor of the Standard. tSn Your correspondent, "Rathliiner," seems to have been very anxiousa to deflbd a certain councillor residing not fhr froinm, that sweet spot from which he ldates his letteir ":Dr. Tierney's roand;" and rather unwisely alludes to " that gentloman's well.intentioned suggestions being overruled or set aside by a majority of his brother couneillors." It seemns never to enter into the minds of th 3 advocates of that part of the district that already there are three roads claiming the paternal care.of the Council, and that it is unjust to other parts of the district that they should all re ceive attention. Let the inhabitants decido which road they will have done, and then the Council might proceed to business ; but what with the Main road above Mr. O'Shanu assy's, the Victoria road. and tie Rathmines road, all claiming to be done together, how is it possible they can expect it ?
