THE PRINTER'S DOOM. ( BV THOS. MACKELLAR. I j C From the Untied States Gaset te.) A printer, weary and wan, His Íac8 all mortally pale, As he wearily plodded his homeward way i'efore the breaking of early day, Lroke out in bitter wail. His voice was husky aud hnarse, Ae though his lungs were gone; And he coughed and gasped, and gasped again, Aud he pressed his hand f n his heart in pain, While thus his p aiut ran on : " A world of toil is this ! It has nc joys for me ; This labor by day and labor by nillir, Hy the light of tue sun and by candie light Labor continually, i I i " Some men have a day of rest, ! But Sabbath for n.e is not : It is toil all the week, and toil on the day That God has given to rest and play I Lo! this is tho printer's lot! «* .When T was a boy," he said, 'I played on the hills of green ; I 6wara in the stream-I fished in the brooks And blessed was I to sit and look, Unlettered, on Nature's scene.

SWITZERLAND. j i HE Constitutionnel publishes the following from ' its correspondent at Berne, dated the 5th :- j " The imprudent decision by which the Grand Council of Lucerne has sanctioned the encourage ment of the Jesuits, in spite of the popular repug ¡ nance, begins to bear fruit. Already the first act of the Jesuitical drama has just been played. According to information received this morning, an insurrection has broke out at Wiliisau, a little j town six leagues from the capital. The Govern j ment had ordered the Prefect to arrest some men of j ¡ the place, known for their opposition to the Jesuits. J j One hundred men of the line were called out to J give assistance to the authorities, but when the i commanding officer wished to proceed to execute j the warrant, the people raised a riot, and opposed I so strong a resistance, that the officer ordered the I troops to fire on the mob.

Where is that land-oh, where ? For I would hasten there ; Tell me-I fa'n would go, For I am wearied with a heavy woe ! The beautiful have left me all alone ; The true, the tender, from my path have gone ! O guide me with thy hand. If thou dost know that land. For I am burdened with oppressive care, And I am weak and fearful with despair. Where ia it? Tell me where. Friend thou must trust in Him who trod before The desolate paths of life ; Must bear in meekness, as He meekly bore, Sorrow, and pain, and strife ! Think how the Son of God These thorny paths hath trod ; Think how He longed to go, Yet tarried out, for thee, the appointed woe ; Think of His weariness in places dim, Where no man comforted or cared for him ! Think of the blood-like sweat With which His brow was wet, Yet how He prayed, u...

Duckett, his son, aged twenty-one years, aud Elizabeth Williams, aged twenty-two, bis sweetheart. It appears that, for upwards of nine years, they had been closely attached to each other, and were never known to have quarrelled.

PORT CHARGES AND POSTAGE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian — 22 April 1845

PORT CHARGES AND POSTAGE. I TO TUB SD1TOB OF THE SOUTH AUSTRALIAN. ME. EDITOB-Your very pertinent remarks, last Friday, on the revenue, induce me to follow them up with a few suggestions as to receipts and expendi ture. The three first lines of the receipts are sa tisfactory ; but the wharfage dues are very unwise --the merchant has to pay his agent, wharfages, and agency beside. Pilotage ought to be reduced at least one half. The unpopular harbor dues must be altogether abandoned. The auction duty, so injurious to persons in that trade (who sell little else but imported goods that have already paid five per cent.), and also detrimental to the public in terests, as preventing three-fourths of the imports from being openly sold to the best buyer (the Falco's cargo is an instance of both the above dif ficulties). Receipts for postage might fairly be reduced to half the amount, or, in other words, reduce postages to one-fourth, and then you will produce one-half, as all experience has ...

Another charge was brought against the pri soner (on which he was remanded)- for obtaining money, by uttering cheques on the Bank of Australasia, be never having al any time had money there. Capt. J.F, Duff appeared to answer a demand made against him by T. Hayden, under the> Masters-and Servants Act. It appeared that the complainant had under taken to dig a well for Capt. Doff, and having failed in performing his agreement, now sought to recover what he considered bis due. The Magistrate ruled that it was a contract», and, whatever might be the merits of the case, it could not be decided under the above act, and? accordingly dismissed the case.

TO THE EDITOB OÏ ZEB SOUTH AUBTHALUtt. SIB-Ia the Observer of Saturday last, it is as serted that the Bank influence has been used to the prejudice of the Mining Association, and that such influence has been aided and abetted by the Bank's professional adviser. Through the medium of your respectable pub lication, I beg to observe that this statement, as re gards myself as the Solicitor to the Bank of South Australia, is without foundation and unwarrantable, and one calculated to place me in an invidious po sition with many of my friends who have joined that Association. I have never aided or abetted any influence against the Mining Association, and, until reading the paragraph in question, I was not aware of any such influence having existed. Any opinion I may haye expressed has been faynvrble, rather than I otherwise, to the Company, which, under judicious ! management, may prove eminently useful. I am.
