ORIGIN OF FREEMASONRY IN ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 3 January 1842
ORIGIN OF FREEMASONRY IN ENGLAND. In the Bodleian Library at. Oxford, there is a manuscript by Lelande, written in the time of Henry the Eighth, entitled, " Certaine Questions and An- sweres to the same; concerning the Mysterie of Masonrye. Writtenne by the hande of Kynge Henrye the Sixthe of the name, and faythefully copied by me John Leyande, antiquarius, by the command of his highnesse." The fourth question and answer in this curious paper stand thus,--" Question, How comede ytt yn Englonde ? - Answer. Peter Gower, a Grecian, journedde for kunnyne yn Egypte and Syria. and yn everyehe londe whereat the Venetians hadde planted masonrye ; he lernede muche, and returnedde and woned in Grecian Magna, wacksynge and bekum mynge a mightye wyseacre, and grate lyehe renowned, and heere he framed a grate lodge at Groton, and maked many masonnes, somme whereoffe dyd journey yn Eraunce, and maked many masonnes, whereoffe comme yn process of tyme the art passed yn Englonde."

THE BISHOP AND HIS BIRDS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 10 January 1842
THE BlilIOP AND HIS BIRDS. A worthy bishop who died lately at Ratisbon had for his arms two fieldfares, with the motto, " Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing ?" This strange coat of arms had often excited attention, and many persons had wished to know its origin. One day an intimate friend asked him its meaning, and the bishop replied by relating the following story. Fifty or sixty years ago, a little boy resided at a little village near Dillen gen on the banks of the Danube. His parents were very poor, and almost as soon as the boy could walk he was sent into the woods to pick up sticks for fuel. WVhen he grew older, his father taught him to pick juniper berries, and carry them to a neighbouring distiller, who wanted them for making hollands. Day by day, the poor boy went to his task, and on his road he passed by the open windows of the village school, where he saw the schoolmaster teaching a number of boys about the same age as himself. He looked at these boys with feelings a...

MISCELLANEA. The Sea. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 10 January 1842
MISCELLANKA. The Sea.-There is something in being near the sea like the confines of eternity. It is a new element, a pure abstraction. The mind loves to hover on that which is endless, and for ever the same. People wonder at a steam boat, the invention of man, managed by man, that makes its limpid path like an iron railway over the sea. I wonder at the sea itself, that vast le viathan,'smiling in its sleep, waked in to fury, fathomless, boundless, a huge world of water drops. Whence is it -whither goes it? Is it of eternity, or of nothing? Strange, ponderous riddle, that we can neither penetrate nor grasp in our comprehension ; ebbing and flowing like human life, and swallowing it up in thy remorseless womb-what art thou ? What is there in common between thy hife and ours who gaze on thee 7 Blind, deaf, and old, thou seest not, hearest not, understandest not ; neither do we understand, who behold and listen to thee. Great as thou art, unconscious of thy greatness, unwieldy, enormous...

THE SCAB IN SHEEP. MR. CLATER'S CELEBRATED OINTMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 10 January 1842
THE SCAB IV[ SHEEP. M[t. CI.ATEItI'S CELEBRATED OINTMENT, Quicksilver one pound ; Venice tur pentine, half a pound; spirit of tur pentine, two ounces; work these well together in a mirble mortar, until the mercury is thoroughly incorporated, and the globules of the quicksilver become invisible when rubbed on pa per, which may require five or six hours' active friction. Then take four pounds of hogs' lard and melt it over a slow fire, and when new milk warm, add to it the quicksilver, and keep con stantly stirring until it grows cold. Four times the quantity may be made at the same time, by working it altoge ther in a large mortar or iron pot, with a wooden pestle five or six inches broad. Mr Clater says, that one pound of this ointment is sufficient to dress seven sheep of moderate size for the cure of the scab; and if slightly affected, will suffice for from that number to ten. He adds, that many farmers and gra. ziers are in the practice of dressing all their sheep and lambs every...

ENCOUNTER WITH A TIGER. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 10 January 1842
ENCOUNTER iVITH A TIGER. Fromn the New Monthly. The spot I selected (says the writer) was the edge of a tank where a tiger used to drink. There was a large tamarind tree on its banks, and here I took my. post. A village shikaree accompanied me; and soon after sun set, we took up our position on a branch, about twelve feet from the ground. I should first mention that we had fastened an ox under the tree for a bait. Well, we remained quietly on our perch for a couple of hours, without anything stirring. rIt might be eight o'clock: the moon had risen, and so clear was the light, that we could see the jackalls at the distance of haiilf a mile sneaking along towards the village, when a party of Brimbarries, passing by, stopped to water their bullocks at the tank. They loitered for some time ! and, becoming impa tient, I got off the tree with a single rifle in my hand, and walked towards them, telling them that I was watching a tiger, upon which they started offim mediately. I was saunter...

THE SACRELIGIOUS GAMESTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 10 January 1842
THE SACRIELIGIOUS GAMESTERS. It is many years since a gentleman happened to take up a night's lodging in a room which overlooked a church yard, situated in the midst of a small town. Whether he was a stranger, a visitor, or a resident there, I cannot at this moment call to mind, nor do I mentson the name of the town, for ob vious reasons. The gentleman was young and strong, and by no means visionary-so that if he looked out of his window before he retired to rest at midnight, it was probably to speculate upon the weather. Once having looked, however, he could not with draw his gaze-his eyes were rivetted upon the church-for he perceived, to his great surprise, that a light was burning within it, casting a dull glean from the windows which surround the altar. He watched for a few moments in silence, and it may be supposed, with as much awa as curiosity, until he wvas certain that there could be no de. ceit-for the light remained burning in the same place. He was resolved to ascertain...
