To the Editor of The Herald. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 3 October 1868
To the Editor of The Herald,. SIR, Someof the colonialpapers laving commented adversely upon the Report of the Committee of Counicil ou Immigration, and haring expressed their regret that so small a number was pro posed to be introduced each year, and also that no recommendation was made for the appoint ment ofan Agent in England, I will with your permission make a few remarks on the subject.: On referring to the Report I fnlud 30 niarried couples, 70 single men, 200 single women, and 20 tradesmen, were. recommended to be sent ont each year, making a total of 320 adulrts.. It was a great consideration with t:c Com mittee that no greater number thould' be im ported than could be readily absorbed" into ser. vice, as nothing could act so injuriously to:the obtaininig of immigrantsas the knowledge which would be soon' communicated to their friends at home, that they were kept for some time in the Home before ohtaininsg employment ; a circum stance which would tend more than any other to...
SCRAPS. A SUMMER'S DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 3 October 1868
S CR APSt A SU?IMER'S DAY. A sound of.d all things low and sweet, Is borne.upon the breeze; The blackbird singing in the hedge, The south wipd 'mong the trees, The bees low hum amid the eaves, Or fly along the pane, With whisp'ring 'mong the tasseled corn, And through the bearded grain. I hear the measured dip of oars - In the waters of the bay, And glad young voices ringing out,. .. A merry roundelay ; The roses red and white fling.out Their banners to the air, And down the walk the lilies stand, With censers rich and rare. The yellow sunshine paints the leaves In shadows on the wall;, And in the air the thistle down, Like snowflakes rise and fall, Who places thoughts upon his work, : Or cares how he is fed? : While humming-birds dart in and out, The green vines overhead. Who &arus for power, or wvealth, or fame, O~r high, or low degree ? I'd rather have my wild.wood haunts,. Beneath the wild-wood tree, Or see the red-bird on the wing, SOr mark the swallow's flight, Or watc...

DOESTICKS' LETTERS. DOESTICKS ON SPRING HOUSE CLEANING. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 3 October 1868
?JESTIC KS' LETTERS. I)QESTIscKS ON SPRING HO.USE .OLEWING. This is the time of year when all wo men are seized with that strange madness known as the " House-cleaning Fever," and all their husbands; brothers, sons and boarders become wretched victims to their feminine fury.: Though physicians and philosophers have for many years vainly sought an explanation of the cu rious disease they have never found it, norhave they ever been able either to prevent its coming on, or to cure it after it has fairly seized upon its wretched vic tim until it has run its full course. The premonitory symptoms are well known to every married man who invari ably flies the house and leaves the pre mises in] undisturbed possession of the enemy. For the information of bachelors and boarders I will enumer.te some of the sai4 symptoms ; When you see a man come up to the door witl. half a barrel of stuff that looks like a .?ixture of lamp-oil and spoiled molasses, and smells like Limburger cheese steWed with ...

SUMMARY FOR THE MAILS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 10 October 1868
SUMMARY FGR THM MAILS. We resume what onccwe very appropriatel~r called our Monthly Summary, but whicra at present, under existing disarrangements we must call by some other nanme. Independant of the strange fact that, the English Mail leaves two days before the mail from this Co lony is due, bywhich,those who are not aaare of the facility afforded: by the land despatch viAMarseilles, find from their- friends, that what otherwise would be novel and interesting is at least a month behind that received by their nseighbors through the latter channel.. Even in this case there: is but four days after 'receiving ihe Australian Mails to reply, in ad dition there is an increased post~ge to be paid. Although nominally we receive thirteeninstead of twelve mails, in fact, except transmitted vi. Marseilles, all communications from Enlgland " are not quickened by thile present arrange ments, and much inconvenience, uncertainty, and disappointment are the only results; the blame of which is laid ...
