Iffrrauel iom I ON THE REMAINS OF A FAVORITE HORSE. And there it lies, the withered corpse Of ray once gallant and noble horse; Battered ana stiff by the lonely creek, With many a wound from the brown hawk's beak; My poor old steed ! I loved you well, And I lost a friend the day you fell, My boyhood's pride, my boast and care, And now to see thee lying there; 'I had no fear, when on thy back Of brigalow scrub or mountain track; The wallaby swift and kangaroo Could not in their speed compete with you. But all thy gallops are at an end, And there thou moulder away, my friend; Yes, thou art gone, as we all must go, And none may avert the dreaded blow. But if the Indian's faith be true, In "happy land" I'll again see you, And oh, what sport we'll have together, ?Over the bright, immortal heather.

No one but myself knows what my sufferings have been. I was always tired and languid, with no inclination or ability to perform ray daily work. My tongue was furred of a morning, and a sour taste in the mouth, and frequent vomiting; one day I would be pretty well and the next very dis tressed or completely prostrated with languor. This went on until I was so ill that I was completely done up and quite unable to move, my ankles being ewollen as thick as my thighs.
