THE BAY OF BISCAY. To the Editor of the Standard. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 11 July 1862
TIlE BAY OF BISCAY. To the .Editor of the Standard Sia,--Having occasion to travel on the SMain Gipps Laud road a day or two ago, I came to that delightful and picturesque s or tion of it called the Bay of liscay; and of all the roads that ever disgraced a community, I think this is the most abominable, One of your correspondents calls it a Slough of Despond ; and I dare swear that John Bun yan in his most sanguine dreams never pie tured such a gulf of mire as this. " A chaos of filth and uncleanness" says your corres pondent. Ah, a very bottomless pit of all that is ugly and frightful. I stood amazed, petrified, and horror-stricken at the terrible sight; for there was a bullock-team coming through at the time, and to see the unfor tunate animals dashing, splashing, and swim uing, sometimes down and sometimes up, I'm sure it would appal the stoutest heart; for never was ship more belaboured, never was captain more put to his wits, than the skipper of this Lhted bullock craft, And ne...

FRIDAY, JULY I11Tr, 102. 'litr almost impassable and dangerous state of the roads in the Bloroondara IRoad Dia trict would suggest to a stranger the idea that the district had once been prosperous, but that it had since fallen into decay and had bceei abandoncd by its inhabitants; while the neat villas and snug homesteads on the roadside would present a very ditlbr ent 'picture to his mind. Still hoe would be at a loss to know why, with a large population, the roads were not kept in a better condition. Should this interesting stranger apply to us for the necessary in formation, we think we might enlighten him. L1 Victoria it is generally understood that a portion of the revenue derived from the sale of Crown lands is applied to the construction of roads and bridges. This has been done hitherto; but where ? The lands of Iloroondara were sold, and the money rc:diz.ed was spent in making the roands to Ballarat, ceechwortlh, and Ben digo, leaving the poor victims who had bought land "fr...

HAWTHORN LITERARY ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 11 July 1862
IIAWTIIORIN ITITE11ARY ASSOCI AT'ION, On M'onday evening last Dr. :Eades de livered a lecture before the members of the above Association, in the Town H[all, Hlaw thorn. The subject of the lecture was ' The .l:nfluence of Mind on Matter." The Ial1 was well filled with an attentive audience. The HIon. *John O'Shanass1y, Chief Sec retary of Victoria, presided, and briefly in troduced the lecturer. Dr. Eades, on rising, said ho hoped no one came there expecting to hear a lecture fromn him, as all he intended to do was to nmake a few remarks upon a subject in which, as a medical man, he was interested, and which lihe trusted would prove benificial to the members of the Institute. F'rom the ap pearanoo of the largo audience before him he must say that they had got on rapidly at lHawthorn, In institutions ot this nature it had often struck him that there was not that amount of assistance rendered to the managing committee which they deserved. Geontlemnen in town who were in the habit of g...

The Chairman remarked that he did not think they should line a mnan for carrying a light in a bottle. lie complied with the spirit of the law by carrying a light. iHow over, it would be well for the police to inform these parties that the ...

ORIGINAL POETRY. TO THE HAWTHORN COQUETTE. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 25 July 1862
ORIGINAL POETRY. TO THE 1AWTHIIORN COQUETTE. I sroic not,'I seek not for pleasures departed, Or dream in my slumbers of joys not my own; But give me those sweets true love once imparted, So dear in prime manhood, unfelt, not unknown. No heart.scathing collar of love shall oppress me, Or teach me to kneel at the shrine of deceit; No filso-hearted coquetto shall ever distress me, Or force tme to fall like a slave at her feet, If o'er I should stray through the by-paths of lHymen, I'll pluck not the flow'ret that opes but to fado; But seek tihe secluded and true loving tliAiden, E'en pluck tie the lily that blooms in ithe shade. Away, then, false-hearted! full well has lie known it The breath of deception has bloom'd o'er thy growth; But maybe thou'st saved it, though rumour disown it, The lustre-clad dew.drop of Virtuoend Youth.
