PRIZE OF ONE HUNDRED GUINEAS I'OR THE BEST DBS s^rsr ON THE LAND QUESTION. IT is granted on all sides that tlie Land Law requires amendment : the Squatter declares it j tlie Free-selector admits it; and the author of the present Land Act at last confesses it. The nature of the amendment required must be the great question of the next Session, or rather, of the next Parliament. On this point, public opinion is still, as it always has been, in a state of chaos. Opinions, in short, or "notions" which pass for opinions, are aa various as there are iuterests to be affected, or political purposes to be served. Before a question of such vital importance to the country is again submitted to the verdict of the people, it seems desirable' that some attempt should be made to sift these various and often conflicting opinions -to separate the true from the false, the politically sound from the politically plau sible, and if possible to evolve from the mass of contradictions that happy golden mea...
Wagga Wagga Advertiser "This is true liberty, when freeborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 21, 1869. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 21 April 1869
® igp ®rg0:r ^bJtat&c x . ? " This is true liberty, when frceborn men, Having to advise the public, may speak free." MILTON. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 21, 1369. THEKE is, doubtless, a certain con venience in looking only at one side of a case. It is always easier to assume than to prove, and of all the modes of disposing of a troublesome fact, there are none so simple as a little ingenious misrepresentation. If every defeated suitor were permitted to review the verdict which gave victory to his opponent, who can . doubt that there would be as many reversals of judg ment as reviews ? Juries would always be wrong and judges always in error. The merits of a case to-day would be the weak points of to-morrow, and justice would change sides with the rapidity of a harlequin, or a Melbourne Member of. Parliament. To a certain extent, of course, this is all very natural. No man, it is to bo presumed, goes to law unless he.thinks that he is right, and .whatever the decision may be, he, is, qui...
ORIGINAL POETRY. THE RING. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Advertiser and Riverine Reporter — 24 April 1869
?OMGIiTAL POETRY. THE RING. Don't talk o£ love of riches, The treasures of the mine, Nor all the preacher pitches Of woman or of wine ; The ring's the root of evil; ? The ring, the ring's the tiling Why when they raised the devil, 'Xwas always " in a ring," Behold yon ring of cherry Cheeked, happy boys at play; What is their game so merry- ? To ring and run away. Those graceful girls, whose features Are tender as their years, Who'd think such pretty creatures Could wring each other's ears ? Go ask yon weeping maiden The reason why sho stands Forsaken, heavy-laden, And wrings her lily hands Why, like a blighted blossom, Siie droops in early Spring ? The sigh escapes her bosom " lit promised me a ring." What is it cowes the hero ? What makes the courage sung Of poets sink to zero Before a woman's tongue ? What chances loves and roses, And all that sort of thing, To broken hearts and noses 2 The magic of the ring. Where is it human nature Is likest to the brute's 1 Where both in form a...
