VICTOIAN" NATIONAL ANTHEM. (Words by G.. G. 'Crse. Music by J. Summers.) Rise ! to the trumpet's sound, and sing The Lord our God alone is King. We praise Thee for our beanteous land, Mount, lake, and river, plain and strand. Take up the strain, ye forests free, And waft glad echoes past the sea. Oh ! smile Thou on our fruitful soil, - For us the corn, the wine, the oil. With these the treasure of the mine, The fleecy flocks, the-countless kine.' Sing ! all ye wind-rocked forests free, And waft the echoes past the sea. Send the round clouds from out the main, Big with Thy ever plenteous rain, And give to us to drink of wine, Each 'neath his fig-tree and his vine. Sound hopeful strains I ye forests free, Repeat and waft them o er the sea.

Murmur this pray'r, ye forests friee, And waft it gently o'er the sea. Bless her, Great God, whose name ...

Tales and Sketches. HER RIVAL. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 23 June 1881
HIER RIVAL. A young lady was ssuntering along the quay, by the side of the Scin, pausing at every one of the shelves of old books that lined the parapets, and now and thee askino the price of some moth-eaten, battere volume from the equally moth-eaten and battered proprietor, meditating over his pipe, under the budding trees. Shie was very prettily and very daintly dressed, but her face and carriage showedtl so much quiet re solution and self-reliance that the boldest idlers of the boulevards would have been de terred from annoying her even in cynuiel Paris, and on the very boundary of the Latin Quarter. She was deep in a quaint little copy of La Brayere, some sixty years old, which was offered at half a frane, when she heard a burst of light laughter not far from her ear, so strangely mingled of sweet ness and a kind of haunting mockery that she involuntarily raised her eyes. Approaching her were a young man and a girl, perhaps two or three years older than herself, and as near the...
No Title [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 23 June 1881
The "personal" items of the American papers are real jam. Here is one-" The Duke of Somerset has a voice like ginger. pop." Sitting Bull, the Indian chief, is, we see by the American papers, about to make his sub. mission to the United States Government. It is gratifying to learn that he has at length been cowed. Miss Myrtleblossom notices as a remark. able fact that, although the priests in France may'nt marry, one is anlways hearing of re. ligious marriages there. The force of habit.--A careless servant. girl, in bringing in an egg at breakfast, let it fall and break. Upon her mistress mildly remonstrating with her, she calmly replied, "Please, mam, it was cracked before." A waggish speculator, one of a numerous family in the world, recently said: "Five years ago, I was not worth a penny; now you see where I am through mny own exer tions." " Well, where are you*i" "Why, n thousand dollars in debt." No quality in the character of the true sportsman is more-conspicuous than that of ...

CORRESPONDENCE. SHIRE SEVERANCE. TO THE -D5TrroR:' .. Sra5In mnylast letter I endeavored to shlio that the' orking expenses of the new shire:ofKWarragul need' not be greater than the share of the work ing expenses hitherto paid by the ratepayers of the two eastern ridings. The-working.expenses 'of the existing Shire of Buln Buln having been as much as £929 a year, the share borne by the;eastern ratepayers must have been not less than £450. As the new shire:could'be workedfor about'£400, there would be no loss, but probably an actual having to theiratepayers of the east, effected ,by the _division of the shire. '. ' Another very important, point always cunningly passed over by our opponents-constitutes, perhaps, the strongest argument.we have to advance in favor of separation. _Owing.to the great extent of the shire many road works have always,.been.done too late in th.'; ssoi~. ,Work going on, in. winter:cannot be as-well done.as ,at the proper season,and must: necessiiarily cost mu...
HINTS FOR BATHERS. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 23 June 1881
HINTS FOR BATHERS. According to the Lancct, it is import ant to recognise that the only virtues of water as used by the bather are two namely, its value as a cleansing agent, and as a surface stimulant. In this last capacity it simply acts as a medium af. fecting the temperature of the part to which it is applied, or which is immersed in it. Right views of fact in reference to this matter are important, because there can be no question that some per sons overrate tile use of cold water, and run considerable risks in their pursuit of them. Every beneficial action that can be exerted by a bath is secured by simply dipping in the sea, or a very moderate allfusion of cold water. Except in esses of high fever, when it is desired to re luee the heat of the body by prolonged con tact with cold, a bath of considerable duration is likely to be injurious. Then, again, it is ncoessary to recog nise the risk of suddenly driving the blood from the surface in upon the organs. The "plunge," or "di...
JUSTICE ON CR. GARSIDE. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 23 June 1881
JUSTICE ON CR. GARSIDE. TO TEH xaITOR. Su--In your contemporary's last week's issue I notice ,a letter signed "Justice," which seems to desire you to understand that the wiiter is ex pressing his gratitude to Cr. Garside for steering a course of his own. But it requires little examiuationi to ascer tain that he is exalting .him in one breath, and politely abusing in another. I do not wish to sing the.peaus of Cr. Garside at the expense of hit colleagues-Crs. Affleck and Gallagher. Yet, sir, I cannot refrain from ex pressing my hearty approval of the manner in which he has conducted himself since he took his seat at the Council table. Why, I ask, should Cr.. Garside have all the abuse heaped upon him ? Why not place a share of it on Cr. Ailleck, who is so mute at tihe meetings, and who, when he does utter a few syllables, is found almost invariably seconding a motion in favor of Drouin? All that has been done for us has, directly, been through the exertions of Cr. Garside. So I con s...

GRIFFITH'S VALUATION. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 23 June 1881
i"Griffith's valuation" is so often referred to in connection with the Irish laud question, and we are asked so many que'stionis as to its nature and the circumstances tinder which it was madtle, that 'itminly be useful to gi6vo soinewhat longaccount of it. _s long ago as 1825, owing to frequent dis putes betwcen the taxing authorities and the landowniers of Irelaid on the subject of their assessments, the Government of the day determined to have the whole landed property of the country revalued; and they aiip pointed Mr. llich:ard Grillith, a well known civil engineer, who had just concluded a masterly geological survey of the island, their sole conmnissioner for that purpose. The work was in4; due course satisfactorily acedmiplished; but as time went on and Ireland eamtr to be well-nigh ruined by the potato famine, it was found necessary to submnit it to revision.

DESTINY. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 23 June 1881
DESTINY. [The following verses were written by f.rs. Barbauld. The Washingtotn lepublie.is au thority for saying that Wordsworth said : " I anot in thaihabit of grudging people their good things, but I wish I had written those lines." They ore- certaitily extremely delicate and suggestive.-Neows Letter.] Three roses, wan as moonlight and weighed down Each with its loveliness as with a crown, Drooped in a florist's window in a town. The first a lover brought. It lay ht rest, Like snow on snow, that night on beauty's breast. The second rose, as virginal and fair, - Shrank in the tangles of a harlot's hair. The third a widow, with new grief made wild, - Shut in the icy palm of her dead child.

IMIPORTANCE OF VACCINA TION. The Central Board of Health, being dcsirous of calling public attention at the present season to the importance of vaccination, has forwarded us the following, rcquesting its insertion: " The rcco?t introduction of Small-pox to the colonuof Nev South Wales hasagain shown our liability to such an attack at any moment; and although.the disease has happily not yet reached Victoria, the Central Boarlo' Healthdeem it of great importance to the safety of. the public that- every ad vantage should be taken of the present very f:!vorab!e season for vaccination, so that the protection which vaccination is known to afford against the horrors of Small-pox may be extended as widely as possible through out the colony.

A STORY OF WESTMINSTER SCHOOL. [Newspaper Article] — Warragul Guardian and Buln Buln and Narracan Shire Advocate — 23 June 1881
A STORY OF WESTMINSTER SCHOOL. There is a storyconnected with Dr. Busby's rule at' Westminster during the times of trouble that must always find a place in any .of the traditions of the, school... All West niinsters are aware that at one time a curtain hungon " the pancake bar" which was drawn to divide the upper from the under school. This curtain was one day torn during school hours by a boy nained John Glynnc.' The unfortunate little fellow was in a terrible fright at the prospect of the flogging which le knew the doctor would give'him. Seeing this, a generous and- plucky friend named William Wake offered to take the blame and the flogging. ; Glynne evidently had not pluck enough to refuse such an offer, so \\rake was punished for tearing the curtain. In the year 16154, among the prisoners -who had been taken at Salisbury at the time of l'enruddock's unsuccessful rising, was Wil liam Wake, who had become a colonel in the Royalist army. He was brought before Cromwell's judges, and...
