Hoskins in the very early hours of the morning on the 21st inst, and took therefrom a tin of Bal mon, a tin of Bardines, and a table knife. He afterwards told Mr. Hoskins that he did it because he was hungry, but as popular prejudice runs in favor of waiting until day light and asking to be given food, when no other visible way of procuring it presents it self, William was marched off to the lock up, and he looked an exceedingly unhappy man on Tuesday morning last when he was ?charged with stealing the goods and also with being on the dwelling house of Mr. HoBkins, with intent to commit a felony.

Hoskins and added about a pound of cheese to his ?own larder., The cheese was his downfall, for while prowl...

'WHERE'S MOTHER?' (By J. Hay ward, New Road, Lithgow.) Bursting in from school of play, This is what the children say, ?Tripp'ng, crowding — big and small— On the threshold, in the hall — Joining in the constant cry, Ever as the days go by — 'Where's mother?' From the weary bed of pain, This same question conies again, From the boy with sparkling eyes, Bearing home his earliest prize; From the bronzed and bearded son; ? Perils past and honors won — ? 'Where's mother?' Burdened with a lonely task, One day we may vainly ask, For the comfort of her face, For the rost of her embrace, Let us love her while we may, Well for us that we can say — 'Where's mother?' Mother with untiring hands, At the post, of duty stands, Patient, seeking not her own, Answers for the good alone Of the children, as they cry, Rver as the days go by — 'Where's mother?'
