GARVEN, in announcing that he has recently obtained a district Publican's license for the above house, begs to solicit the patronage of the Inhabitants of Beechworth and the surrounding dis trict, and to assure them that he will spare no pains to gain for the Criterion that position as a house of entertainment which its name implies.

Poetry. ORIGINAL AND SELECTED. THE BLOOMING OF VIOLETS. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 17 February 1855

ORIGINAL AND SELECTED. THE BLOOMING OF VIOLETS. BY THE ItEV. JAMES GILBORNB LYONS, LL.D. AY ! cast those gloomy thoughts aside. The genial spring is here : She comes with all her violets To bless another year. Lo, rising at her welcome voice. They steal in gladness out. And, wished for long, the light warm south Is harping all about. By garden walk and rustic fence, Fair bush and rude gray stone. They laugh amung the leaves and graas, In starry clusters strewn. Retiring from the gaze of men. They lurk, a bashful race, . But every breeze that wanders by. Reveals their liidingplace. While, heedless of their own sweet worth, They quaff the shining dew, Or catch, from God*3 eternal arch. Its deep and strainless blue. Go, mark thou well the scents and dyee» To them so freely given, And own that weak and lowly things Are yet most loved of heaven. Then drop this weary load of care, Be meekly glad as they, Nor fear to live on earth unseen, To pass unseen away. Learn thou with joy to stand o...

Literature. ANCIENT EGYPT. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 17 February 1855

Literature. ANCIENT EGYPT. (From Ihe Home Circle.) Nechao succeeded his father Psammetichus (B C. 617). By the advice of his coun cillors, the king made a canal, twenty.eight leagues long, to connect the Red Sea with the Mediterranean. Following the example of his father, he carried hia arras into Pales tine : at Magado, he fought and filled the King of Jndep, Josias, dethroned his 6on, and only allowed his brother Joachim to be crowned on condition of paying him tribute. Nechao advanced as far as the Euphrates, where he took Chareemis, but being after wards defeated in a battle with Nebuchad nezzar, he lost all his conquests. All that is know of his successor, Piammis, is an expedition to Ethiopia, (b.C. 595). Apries succeeded him; he fought the Sidonians, the Tyrians, and the Cyprians, and turned his arms against the Greek colony of Cyrene. This expedition failed ; and the soldiers, thinking themselves be trayed, revolted, and chose Amasis as king (569). lie was of an inferior cas...

Summary of Mining THE GOLD FIELDS OF THE j . OVENS DISTRICT. ^ SPRING GREEK.'-Although a consider able increase is observable in the popula tion of this gold field, raining operations have been prosecuted but slowly, in con sequence of the attractions offered by the races. The 1 New Rush' is still much sought for, and many parties are coming in from the Nine-mile with the intention of steadily trying their fortunes up the gully, where the lead of gold appears to tend. Many persons, however, merely attracted by the ' rush,' have left for their former claims. REID'S CREEK.- Judging from the profuse expenditure of our worthy and ! liberal friends at Reid's Creek, who were determined to spend their money, and to run their hacks against anything and for any amount, we should opine that the ?treasures of this gold field are still within the reach of the very orderly and steadily working population who are employed there.
