LATEST NEWS FROM ENGLAND. (From the Sydney Morning Herald.) [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 25 December 1846
..LATEST NEWS FROM ENGLAND. (From the Sydney Morning Heiald.) "By the St. George we have received En- glish papers to the 30th August. The speech was unusually tame. A very important step towards the set- tlement of the squatting system has been taken, Parliament having authorised the issue of leases for fourteen years. Much will of course depend upon the regula- tions which are to be issued by the Privy Coupcil, but from the expressions of Earl Grey to gentlemen connected with the colony there is little doubt that they will be framed in a conciliatory spirit. Mr. Scott made an effective speech; but to show how little interest is taken in any colonial subject, the Times says that there were only eight members in the House during the discussion. A Bill prepared and brought into the &nbsp; House of Commons by Mr. Haws, Lord John Russell and Mr Buller, was passed " to make further provision for the go- vernment of the New Zealand Islands;" it enacts that Her Majesty may establi...

THE LAND OF THE THISTLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Melbourne Argus — 25 December 1846
THE LAND OF THE THISTLE. Though bright be the lands of the rose and the shamrock, Though green be the verdure of Erin's fair Isle, Yet never-oh never-their beauty can vie with The land of the thistle, and heather chid hill. Dear Scotia in memory thou seemest ever near me, Though far, parted far, by the wide roaring sea, May fancy's bright vision with all here, still blend thee, Thou land-oh thou land of the Thistle for me. Thy sons like thy mountaias, may seem rough &nbsp; and homely, But truth and integrity mark them as thine, O'er all other nations, their fame and their glory, Their honour, their courage and valour all shine. X*t others rejoice in these sun nurs'd proud regions, Australia can ne'er twine a charm for me, Ï long for thy breezes and cool flowing foun- tains, Thou land-oh thou land of the Thistle for me. 'Our feathery tribes though they flaunt in gay plumage, No sweet music echoes the wild woods among, , 3Mo lively chanting, the gay heart to ravish, iOr when s...
