Listen to the moaning wind, What companion dost thou rind In the meaning of the wind 1 Does it break thy heart in two, Recalling joys that once were new, When thy soul was young and true ; Listen to the moaning wind. Listen to the waterfall That folds thy spirit like a pall ; Who speaks I it is the dead who call, That once were near and dear to thee, Fair as the wild flowers, by the sea, That blossom once, then withered be, By the storm that gulpht them «11, Listen to the Whip-poor-will When dance the ¿ead upon the hill, And weird forms thy spirit fill ; As the toke of things unseen Passes by with phantom sheen, Grasping thy mortal hand between Their shadouy witt. Listen to the spirit-bird, Listen to the voiceless word, Whose sound no mortal ever heard ; Save when the dead who sleep below, Unfold th» human heart to know, The trembling thoughts that wildly glow, Felt, but never seen or heard. Listen to the voice of trees, Whispering in t...

Father and I was having a chat about the election ; he says there's only two out at present for Windsor-but he thinks as there's sure to be a rush after the Sydney election ? over. The old man thinks as there ought to be a stopper put on this sort of thing. He don't think its right-if they won't elect Vm in Sydney, why they shouldn't be allowed to bother us afterwards. | He says if he was Governor he'd have all the elections on the one day, which would save a lot of trouble. He hasn't made up his mind yet which is the best man ; he's j waiting till they're all out.

Original Poetry. MARANATHA.[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 30 October 1880

0rt£tnal ffoetrg, MARANATHA* By W. G. B. IN the east the young morn blushes ; In the north the pole storm rushes ; In the west the fierce wind flies ; In the south its fury dies. Maranatha. In the valley hums the fountain ; In the snow-storm looms the mountain ; In the dell wild violets bloom ; And blossoms deck the moss-fringed tomb. Maranatha. In the fury of the gale, Shriek the lost, and sinks the sail ; In the caverns of the deep, Gloom and horror wake from sleep. Maranatha. In the lone wood sings the bird, The songs that our first parents heard j In the dungeon tolls the bell, For a soul that sighs farewell. Maranatha. In the bottle's fiery shocks, Death, the victim's, victor, mocks ; In the greed for pomp and power, Nemesis rules the fatal hour. Maranatha. In the rude and savage strife Of life's battle, life for life ; Lo ! when passions cease to rave, Who shall help thee in the grave Î Maranatha. In the cottage, on the throne, Grief and auguish claim their own ; In the pure a...

THE IMPROVISED PUBLIC MEETING. (To the Editor of the Australian.) [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 30 October 1880

THE IMPROVISED PUBLIC MEETING. (To t!ie Editor of the Australian.) SIR,-lu perusing the report of the pro ceedings of the late meeting of the Windsor Municipal Council, I notice in the sub-report the following sentence :-" Just now a public meeting was improvised to protest against 5555555558»^^ thé tax," and Alderman Collins took the chair." In referring to this sentenoe, I* simply wißh to remark that it vas the unanimous desire of those aldermen present that I should preside. In BO . doing, I pre sided over a meeting- improvised for an expression of opinion in re tax or Lighting Bate. In view of my past action in this matter, I could not consistently preside over a meeting, the ohject of which would be to oppose that which I believed inevitable. If the speeches delivered on that occasion , seemed to favour the rescission of the resolu tion of the 11th of August, in re Lighting Rate, I am not responsible. The levying of this rate being perfectly legal, and being the only mode of le...

»SI)c Australian. Magna est veritas, et prevalebit. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30, 1880. SOME persons in this district are making themselves contemptible to all possessed of manly principles. While canvassing for one candidate for Parliament, suppressing, of course, all hie defects, they hurl scurrilous and intolerant abuse at the candidate opposed to their man. Mr. Bowman falls in for a good share at the hunda of these parties ; indeed, it makes one shudder to hear of the noisome things said about that gentleman. Mr. Bowman is accused of all kinds of offences, and if he were the blackest-hearted scoundrel in Christendom his villifiers could not more religiously hurl their shafts at him. This detestable conduct cannot assist the cause of the gentry who think it the correct thing to lower a man in the estimation of his fellows! Far from it-we are of opinion that all MEN, no matter of what opinion before, when this dodge to prejudice them against the can didate is resorted to, will have still ...

His classical language on Monday, though, when translated, was of such a stunning character, that he was requested to ante up a couple of sovs, in order to assist Consta ble Berckelman to recover from the stupe faction consequent upon the powerful ora tory.

A Woman's Wiles! A TALE OF THE EMERALD ISLE, Abounding with Mysterious, Thrilling, and Romantic Incidents. CHAPTER XXIII. OUT ON THE WASTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian, Windsor, Richmond, and Hawkesbury Advertiser — 30 October 1880

A Woman's Wiles ! A TALE OF THE EMERALD ISLE, Abounding with Mysterious, Thrilling, and Romantic Incidents. CHAPTER XXIII. OUT ON THE WASTE. The Baronet drew back to the hiding-place of his companions, and reported what had been said, asking anxiously if they thought it would be wise to remain in such unwise prox imity to the tower now a regular hunt wa6 about to instituted. Buf Norah, after consulting with her faith ful Ratty, decided that the risk was not as great as he imagined. ' They cannot make a thorough search for us until morning,' she assured him. ' In this wild waste of bog and rock, it would be madness to attempt it ; and you will see that they will soon be discouraged, and give it up.* And so it proved. Armed with torches, Regan and his comrades sailed forth, passing more than once under the trees that sheltered the fugitives ; and there was a great shouting and rushing to and fro ; but it ended in the whole party returning to the tower, weary and discomfited, to fortif...

' Oh, very bad,' was the reply ¡ * I can bardly hear a sound.' ' Well, replied the doctor, ' you know how often I have impressed upon you that you must give up spirits. Do that and you will get all right.' And away he went. A fortnight iater he paid his patient another visit, and enquired after his ailment. ' You don't need to shout so, doctor,' said the old man irascably. < I have followed your advice, have given up my grog, and hear per fectly.' A week later the medical man paid his patient yet another visit, and found him al most stone deaf once more. ' Ah,' said the former,' I suppose you have been indulging again.' ' Well, doctor,' replied the patient, ' I must confess that I have, for I didn't consider all I heard worth a single glass of brandy and water.'
