POET'S CORNER. ORIGINAL POETRY. HOME. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 9 May 1868

POET'S CORNER. ORIGINAL POETRY. HOME. I sigh for home, dear home.     With all its joys and cares ; The faces round its bright hearth-stone, Oh ! there are none like theirs. I sigh for home, dear home, To be 'mid its childish glee ; The laughing fields of wheat and corn Growing luxuriantly. I sigh for home, dear home,   Where all is bright and gay ; Where the golden apple and the peach doth bloom, And the long clear summer day. I sigh for home, dear home, And its cheering smiles of light, Where the purple grape around are strewn 'Neath its sky of azure bright. I sigh for home, dear home, 'Neath the waving forest trees, Where the whistling wind doth moan, While all within is glee. I sigh for home, dear home,   Its happy ones to join,   And never more to roam   Through life's all-changing time.   E. FRANCES FENWICK. Minmi, 5th May, 1868.

Hosti | of Bulfercrs from indigestion, liver complaints, nervou* : debility, disorders of the bowels, epileptic fits, and other diseases, have been cured by this unapproachable medi cine, whon ovory other means hud failed.

OUR OWN REPORTER. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle — 13 May 1868

OUR OWN REPORTER. (From Chambers' Journal.) Very few persons have an idea of tlio itn- . portant part played by the reporter iu modern social life, lie is, sis a rule, so unobtrusive, that ho seldom comes under the oye of the public ; and during si recent session, wlma there was a slight scandal caused through the out-spokenuess of one. knight, of the pencil, who' had given his opinion respecting n noble marquis in language, more emphatic than com plimentary, si good many people wore reminded almost for the. first time in their lives, of the existence of tliis largo and useful body of men, Yet the reporter is ubiquitous. His mission is simply to be eyes and ears for the world at lame. Wherever lie troes. he carries his note book with liim ; whatever In; doe.s, lie keeps his business in mind, and he never forgets, thut he is the servant of the public — unit a very useful liml important servant too.
