To the Editor of the Geelong Advertiser and Squallers' Advocate. Corio, March 6th, 1846. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 14 March 1846

To the Editor of the.Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate. Corio, March 6th, 1846. SIR,-- Your paternal watchfulness   over the interests of this community will form a sufficient apology for trespassing upon the columns of your valuable jour- nal, and drawing your particular atten- tion to a portion of the sayings and doings of our late illustrious visitors, "The Melbourne FatherMathew Branch Total Abstinence Society." It is not my intention to enter into the merits or demerits of the principles which they pretend to advocate, nay force down the throats of the Geelong public, my object is to notice the manner in which they began to illustrate the principles of Tee- totalism. In the first place I would ask you, is it consistent, with the usages of British subjects, in the mother country, or the colonies, or even in catholic Ire- land, to march through the town on the Sabbath-day with banners flying, drums beating, and the band playing most pro- fane tunes ? setting...

THE EXILE OF ERIN. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser and Squatters' Advocate — 14 March 1846

THE EXILE OF ERIN.   There came to the beach a poor Exile of Erin, The dew on his thin robe, was heavy and chill; For his country he sigh'd, when, at twilight, re- pairing   To wander alone by the wind-beaten hill ; But the day-star attracted his eye's sad devotion; F'or it rose o'er his own native Isle of the ocean, Where once, in the fervour of youth's warm entotion,   He sang the bold anthem of ERIN GO BRAGH ! " Sad is my fate I" said the heart-broken stranger. "The wild deer and wolf to the covert can flee ; But I have no refuge from famine and danger : A home and a country remain not to me ! Never again, in the green, sunny bowers, Where my forefathers liv'd, shall I spend the sweet hours ! Or cover my harp, with the wild-woven flowers. And strike to the numbers of ERIN GO BRAGH ! "Erin ! my country ! though sad and forsaken, In dreams I revisit thy sea beaten shore ! But, alas in a far-foreign land I awaken,   And sigh for th...

MORE NEWS FROM NEW ZEA LAND: By dthe H.E.I.C.S. lFphinstone, arrived at Hobart Town, we have neiws from Auckland to the 17th February, of a more cheerful description than we li?ae lately been accustomed to hear. "The following is. from the New Zealander, an Auckland paper; of the above date: SThere are reports of the instability of Heki's observance of [peace; butfrom the best-authority welearn that Heki had been on a -visit to Pomare, and that they had been indulging in copious, potations for some days, during which time of excite ment and inebriety Heki had expressed himself in rather warlike terms,-hut there were no real grounds to fear any recurrence of actual hostilities, as Heki's influenice with the natives had;considerablydiminished -and. by Kawiti and other chiefs, was quite disregarded."

'select vortt'v. STANTAS BY THE SEA SIDE. Beautiful Ocean, how I loved thy face When mine was fresh and sparkling as "ihine own; Vheon my bold footsteps took their toppling place, To see thee rise upon thy rock piled throne. Oh I how I loved thee, when I bent my ear To listen to the rosy sea-shell's hum, And stood in extasy of joyous fear, Daring thy broad and bursting wave to-come. When amy wild breast bent high to see thee leap In stormy wrath around the beacon light-; And my eye danced to see thee swell and sweep, Like a blind lion wasting all thy might. 1 laved thee when upon the shingle stones, I'beard thy glassy ripples steal and drip, W'it thte soft gush and gently murmur'd tones That dwell upon an infant's gurgling lip. I loved thee with a childish dreaming zeal, That gaz'd in rapture and ador'd with soul; And my proud heart, that stood like temper'd steel Before harsh words, melted beneath thy roll.
