POETRY. THE ENVY OF THE WORLD. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 10 May 1864

PU. ET1 Y. THE ENVY O?T?TIIE WORLD. All the nations how they hate us How they do vituperate us I If they could annihilate us Oh, how happy they would bol What can we have done to fire them, With the rage that doth inspire them _ or to do what we desire them, S When we leave them all so freeo Occupled with peaceful labour, No'er do we attack a netihbour; If we ever draw a sabre, 'Tis hbut to return a blow. ¶ ', Never, basely acting undbt: Lord of glory or of'phlnder, - b we launoh our British thunder Unprvoked on any foe. All In turn attempt to oeo us, A nd they can't, and then abuse us, . Dolng able to accuse aus N" ot of any act unjust; . lBut It seems that we, old Ocean's Sons, .wth our pcouliar notions, In the midst of their eommotions Stand unmoved ; to their dlsgust Thu ea. won't adopt thei rM urases; Treat their thelor cl s ernss; Their bombat our laughter raises, And their idols we eschew ; )on'tevere their supcertitones, And their priestly exhibitions, Ceremonies, impo.siton...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA INDEPENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 10 May 1864

TO THE EDITOR OF THE ,KIA.IA INDEPESDENT. Si,-Now that the election is over a num ber of people are wondoring what induced so many, votes to be given to tile detfeated candi date after all that was said about his unfitness, and having so little to say himself on the questions proposed to him. What did the electors expect Dr. Hamilton to do in the As soiibly, either for the good of this district or tie country generally P. Supposing the Minis try had persuaded him to appear as a candi date, it is not likely their influence would reach the different classes and opposite chla racters who faivoured hims, and took active steps in gettinig others to do tihe same. Nearly everyone you meet cries out agtilist. the doings of the Govorumont; and natural enough, seeing that all must suffller alike 'tl consoequences t pfbhid legislation. Every one calls for free lat llieu' policy, nld when a man who is ee ' .pnd.iibgral -comes forwarid, possessintg tlh Ability-aho experience desired,' he is reje...

EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 10 May 1864

EXTENUATING CIRCUIISTANCES. (From ihe Cornhill Magazine.) Of the strange and whimsical totives which determine French juries in the discovery of extenuating circumstances (les circonstances attenuantes), very curious instances are recorded. Some years ago, an innkeeper and his wife were tried for having murdered a traveller while lodging in their house, and further, for having made part of the dead body into sausages, with which they duly regaled succeeding custositers. These singularly revolting accusations were clearly proved, and the jury returned a verdict of "guilty, but without premedi tation, and under extenuating circum stances." . . . In 1848, ia man killed his mother, and then reduced the body to ashes in the fire-place. , He was found guilty, but with " extendating cir cumstances." A bare verdict of guilty was doubtlessly reserved in case any other man should advise himself to burn his mother before she was absolutely mur dered. In 1843 a servant girl committed several ro...

VANITY. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 10 May 1864

VANITY. (From the Saturday Review.) The people we do not know are not better, grander, more appreciative than the people we do know; but they are vaguer, and it is possible to endow them in imagination with an ideal enthusiasm, a larger apprehension of our merits. Thus vanity is one of constancy's great cst eniemies, froin tlhepreference it has for now 'liomage over the old, for hope and desire' over fruition. It cannot fan its flame to any height in familiar scenes, or: among old acquaintances. A man's wife and the domestic circle may encour age and keep it going, but .only by in stilling the notion of a largo and ever growing popularity and interest out of doors. No vini ,porsou is 9satisfied with even the worship of the people lie knows best. All this is,-'to his impatient aspi rations, mere neglect and obscurity. Thus, biographers tell us of popular preachers who have been much more ex cited by a paragraph in a newspaper than by churches crowded- with parishoners corner of a pro...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA INDEPENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 10 May 1864

T TR"LE EDITOR Or TIiE It1i?iA INDEPENDENT., Slit,-I have been interested and amused at comparing the vo'arious exhibitions of feeling with which'th'o daily press of Syd iey remark on the 'return of Mr. Parkes to Parliament by lhe. electors of this dis triac. The Eampire hails' the event as one of the most atuspicious mones, and seems to expect that it will prove the inauguration of a better state of things than has for some time existed in the lpolitics of this country. The presence of a " veteran reformer" such as Mr. Parkes, will, in" the opinion of the REmpire, revive the courago of the few honest and capable' men in the Assembly, who might, partiiclarly tinder tile stiniulus of the present financial crisis, contrive to organise a party pledged to the reform of existing abuses, and of the extravagant sys temn of expenditure which has brought so much mischief on the colony. So be it. I,. for one, hope tihat Mir. Parkes, stillpos sessamg all the sigonr of his earlier days and grow...

A succession of two, if we should not rather say of, three ,h bad seasons, may well have been sullicient to diminish: the hope: of a profitable-return from the labour of sowing the ground with the cereals, which have hitherto beena the'principal objects of cultivation in this, as in other districts of NeW South Wales.

ENGLISH AND FOREIGN EXTRACTS [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 10 May 1864

ENGLISH AND FOREIGN EXTRACTS STonRY o A LEGACY.-The Dublin Ustn' versify. Magazine contains an amusing '' Digressive Essay on Wills," in which are related numerous examples of curious wills. The following is a specimen:-" In the year 1796 the following strange cireum stance occurred in connection with a will. Two gentlemen who had been left execu tors to a friend, on examining the property, found a scrap of paper on which was writteri, ' Seven hundred pounds in Till.' This they took in the literal sense, searched his office, and all the other apartments carefully, but in vain. They sold his col lection of books to a bookseller near the Mews, ind paid the legacies in proportion to the sum realised. The singularity of the circumstance occasioned them frequently to talk about it ; at last it flashed across one of them that among..t the books sold, more than seven weeks before, there had. been a folio edition of Tillotson's sermons; The probabilityof this being what he alluded to by the...

The chairmanl explained the object of the meeting, and stated that nothing would give himn greater pleasure than to see drunlkeness decrease, and tectotalism increase in the land. Illis own epecrience, durinlg mlore than thirty years, convinced him that intoxicating drinks wore Inot necessary to the comfort of lhuman life. HIe did not believe in coercion,but thought much might be done by pursuasion. We halnd a fair right to say whether Ihe would have any, or what number, of public-houses in the dis trict where he lived. Thu present system of licensing the liuor traffic was in itself a great evil. Instead of having a body of a hundred magistrates, who were responsible for their numbers, it would be better to limit the power of granting licenses to a board of five or seven members. The Rev.

. IISOELLANEOUS.. . ADVANTAGES OF' COLD WATER.--Dr. . C. Warren says --The effect.of cold water as a tonic is well-knoirn' The refreshing influence of water applied to o theface, -neck, hands,:and arms, is a matter of gene ral experience. The operation of cold water, applied to thel whole body, prodduces an agreeable and refreshing sensation. This is followed by a glow mor or oess considcr able, depending partly upon the difforence between the tomperip ture of the water and that of- the body,:and partly on.the state of the body-itself to wnich the ripplication is made.
