'Far in the distant country, my shining sword I Lost, Amidst the coming conflict, my trusty laace I tost. And what, oh! weary warrior! I hear the night winds say, Oh, what, oh, weary wand'rer! hath wrought such disarray ? My answer 1 speak to the spirit, for I feel that the wind is not here, In the morn from my Castle, I sallied as fresh as the morning air, Bright was my blazoned sureoat, bright were my sword and shield, And all the old servants around me thought that to nought I could yield.

PLATO'S DREAM. (Translated from the French.) [Newspaper Article] — Bunyip — 2 July 1864

PLATO'S DREAM. (Translated from the Freuch.) Plato used *o dream a great deal, and in truth a pood deal of r*al draining goes on yet — He dreamt, amongst other things, that mankind were double, and that it Was for . their faults that they were divided into male and female. He proved that there could only be five perfect worlds, because there were only five geometrically perfect bodies His republic was a great dreani of his ; he also dreamt that evening sprang; from nv-rniti£, and morning from evening, and .that one was sure to beeou.e blind by observing eclipses in anything but a pail of water. Dreams in iiis time gave an immense reputation. Here is one of his dreams, and hot the worst. It seemed to him t'.a« the great Deroiourgos, tin* eternal geometrician, having scattered thro* infinite epace, innumerable globes, desired to try the talents of the -iei-ii% who hud witnessed hs operations.

NO SECT IN HEAVEN. Talking of sectsTill late one eve — Of the various doctrines the saints believe; That night I stood in a troubled dream, Ijy the side of a darkly flowing stream; And a clergyman down to the river came, When I heard a strange voice call his name. — Good father, stop! when you cross this title. You must leave your robes on the other side! But the aged father did not mind, ' ; Ami his long gown floated out .behind, j As down the stream his way he took- - J His pale handsclasping a gilt-edged book. *Tm bound for Heaven, and when I'm there, I shall want my book of Common Prayer; And though I put on a starry crown, I shall feel quite lost without my gown.'

Hall gave one of his talented entertainments at the Oddfellow's Hall on Monday evening, Aug. 1st., when he introduced his scene of the Stump Orator, with local hits. We sincerely wish he had been a little less personal in these, as some were calcu lated to give just offence, to some of our fellow townsmen. We hope in future, Mr. Hall will not allow himself to be persuaded to a course so obviousiy contrary to his interests.
