A POLICEMAN'S SOLILOQUY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 16 February 1867

A POLICEMAN'S SOLILOQUY. How sad and dreary is this square, Now it's forsook by Mary ! In vaiu I looks for jugged' are, Down this now wacaut ha'ry. I always stops to shed a tear ; About this spot I lingers ; But gets no more such supper beer, Nor yet can squeeze her fingers. A Hirish brogue she had I knows, But then her waist was slender ; Her heye was blue, — just pug her nose, And chicken always tender. Before I trudges on my beat, j I gives a last look down the hairy ; i And though I misses my drop o' neat, j ' I sees the spirit of Mary. j j Lord Lyttos and the Working Man. — It has j been my good fortune to correspond with many of the operative class, not only as a member of Parlia ment upon political affaire, but in my prouder capa city, as a litctary man, upon various schemes which, in letters and in science, had occurred to their in genuity.

BAKER'S FIRST SIGHT OF THE ALBERT N'YANZA. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 16 February 1867

BAKER'S FIRST SIGHT OF THE ALBERT NTANZA. The sun had not risen when I was spurring my ox after the guide, who, having been pro mised a double handful of beads on arrival at the lake, had caught the enthusiasm of the moment. The day broke beautifully clear, and having crossed a deep valley between the hills, we toiled up the opposite slope. I hur ried to the summit . The glory of our prize burst suddenly upon me. There, like a sea of quicksilver, lay far beneath the grand expanse of water — a boundless sea horizon on the south and south-west, glittering iu the noonday sun ; *i«*l An 4-Iia nrnis^ *i t Kft *M. iifi WllloQ7 fi 1 QT31T1f*.P. ouu vu. iiuc nxsii} at w ui \j\j ******.« »*.««-«^«, blue mountains rose from the bosom of the lake to a height of about 7,000 feet above its level.

England had won the sources of the Ni...

LOVE-LETTERS. [Saturday Review.] [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 16 February 1867

LOVE-LETTEES. [Saturday Beview.) If the Civil Service Commissioners wished thoroughly to test the literary power of any candidate who was at their mercy they could not subject him to a more searching ordeal than by setting him down to write a model love-letter. This species of composition is one with which most men, in the course of a long and chequered career, become familiar. If they have not got to write love-letters of their own, me cnauces oi lire or ui a. prorcsmou bring them generally into contact with the love-letters of other people j and general ex perience agrees in this, that there is no branch, of literature so universally cultivated to so very little purpose or use. Love-letters ought, on theory, to be full of genius. They contain, or are supposed to contain, the young gushings of nature and of the heart. And it is very much in favor of the writers that they write in moments of considerable exaltation, and mean what they write to be seen only by one pair of liquid eyes...

No title [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 16 February 1867

In all newly- settled countries the theory of good government is necessarily more ex- j paneire than in older communities, where j individual wealth and.private enterprise cater more appropriately and, as a rule, more suc cessfully, for the wants of a nation than Governments apparently can. The settlers — especially in a colony like this, founded and sustained upon the purely co-operativeprmciple which, even now, regulates the disposal of the I Land Fund — have a claim upon the Govern ment for assistance in developing to the utmost the resources they have acquired by purchase and settlement. This principle has been fully recognized in the past history of the colonv, and if it can be shown that in endeavoring to give effect to it mistakes have been made for l which the Government are responsible, it must necessarily be conceded that the error has not satisfied the claim. It certainly seems to us j that this is a very fair rendering of the present position of the Government to a large...

GREAT MEN OF OUR DAY. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 16 February 1867

GREAT MEN OF OUIt DAY. Under this head we purpose from time to time to print short biographies of the leading men iu England, especiall)' great authors, whose names appear ever and anon in the English news. Those who read the writings of Tennyson, Dickens, Carlyle, Ruskin, or who hear of the fame of Gladstone, or of the rising uame of Thomas Hughes, or Henry Fawcett, champions of the people, may perhaps hs glad to see a few facts put together concerning their earlier history, or to learn what they have written or said which haa gained them such celebrity. We shall thus supply, to a certaiu class of our readers, the place of a manual of reference in biography, and we think our space will be well bestowed. We begin to-day with the Poet-Laureate, from whose poems we hare quoted already.
