A Pastoral. [Newspaper Article] — Colonial Times — 25 June 1830
À Pastoral. My mountain home is lar away, My flocks aie wild and few , But then my spirit's light and gay, Mj heart is warm and true. The viewless winds that wanton by Were not more wildly fiee Than my glad heart, till Lucy's eye deduced my peace from me. O, Lucy ' quit the breath of towns, Where fawning folly reigns, And pi ove with me the joy that orowns The home of mountain swims. We'd catch the rosy tint of day Upon the rocky height- ' We'd feel the wild winds round us play, With pulses of delight. ^ I'd clasp (bee to this ardent heart, That fondly doats on thee, And ask if crowds could e'er impart So pure an ecstasy. Then, Lucy, quit the breath of towns, Where (awning folly reigns, And prove with me the joy that crowns 1 he home ot mountain swains. G. ^ m *.

HUMAN LIFE.-A variety of curious cal- culations have lately been made in France with respect to the average duration of human life, &c, in Paris, during iii« eighteenth century. It appears that the average age of mar- riage was, for men, about twenty-nine years and three quar- ters--for women, about twenty-four years and three quarters ; and that the average age of parents at the bil ill of a son, was for women, about twenty-eight years aud a quarter-for ineii, about thirty-three years and a quarter. It follows that there were nearly three generations in Paris during the last century. It is a r/einaikable fact that this estimate coincides with that of the Greeks in theil chronological tables. ..

Literary Varieties. i We continue our selections from the biogra- phical memoirs'of the WoitlTi.es of Newgate of the last century, and will take for our first a few particulars of a Mrs, Hayes, who stirred up in London in the year 1720, an extraordinary .sensation, by «,s barbaious a mritder as ever couvuKed a-comm y since murders first came into'«vécue. "She hated her husband with the -heraiit of a she zanga, or tigress, and had long .compassed his death. At length, to make it »moi« certain, she won over to her purpose two r «men, Thomas Billings and Thomas Wood, who * were to make him drunk with mountain wine, when the accomplices dispatched him with a , coal-hatchet, aud his wife afterwards held his head ovei a bucket, whilst the two men cut it .off. We now proceed to the narrative. Mrs. Hayes proposed, iu ofder to prevent a discoveiy, that she would take the head and boil it in a pot till only the skull remained, so that it would be altogether impossible (or any t body to distin...

EDITOR-Happening to turn over a last year's file of the Tasmanian, I noticed, under date of the 20th Maroh, in his leading article, among other observations of the Editor nppn the expenditure of the Colony, tlio following «\ouls-: " We do' consider that the dutie» of the Seeretury.'s^Ollice might be performed here as they were in Macquaiie'svtim^.m New South Wales, where ten-fold the real busine-s wa» done DAILY than can be possibly required here WhUKLY.' hy a Secretary and four under clerks."
