ORIGINAL POETRY. FOR "THE SYDNEY HERALD." A SONG. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 21 May 1832

01t.iaXN.AJL VOBTB.Y. FOR "THE SYDNEY HERALD." .a SONG. Come, strike the Lyre my gentle girl ! And play my favourite air ; For sounds so full of harmony, Banish away all care. For when I see thy fingers fair ' So swiftly touch the strings, And hear that pleasing strain which leads My mind from earthly things ; I fancy when at intervals, Thy own sweet voice chimes in It is some lone Italian maid, Chanting her vesper hymn. Then strike the lyre ! and for a while, We'll leave this chilly clime ; And mount on fancy's rapid wings, To regions more sublime ; Where Soj does not withdraw his rays, Changing sweet day to night j But only sheds a gentler heat, And gives a milder light ; Where stormy winds are hever known, But zephyrs gently piny, Upon the water's glossy face ; Like one continued May. These beauties never fade away, But still fresh charms unfold ; Love, there is innocent and pure And is not bought willi gold ; . There Venus shall receive thee, love, And place thee in her train ; ...

MARKETS. THURSDAY, MAY 17. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 21 May 1832

MARKETS. THURSDAV, MAY 17. An abundant supply of marketable produce was brought to town this morning, as was anticipated, 800 bushels of wheat were sold from 4s to 6s. per bushel, other grain maintained our last quotation. The vegetables were of the best description ; some fine Derwent potatoes produced a shilling more than those of the growth of this Co- lony. Hay was a shade lower, and straw had un- dergone a rise. Dairy produce at our Jast prices. Tallow, Soap and Candles, still maintain a high figure. Oranges were abundant at a fall, other fruits very scarce. A very slight fall has taken place in cattle fit for the knife, which has not, how- ever, effected meat by the joint. Colonial Tobac- co is not just now in request. Sales of horses are dull. Wool, clean and good, in request.

The Sydney Herald. MONDAY, MAY 21, 1832. " Sworn to no Master, of no Sect am I." [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 21 May 1832

The Sydney Herald. MONDAY, MAY 21, 1832. " Sworn to no Master, of.nojSect fim I." We understand that the Tenders for Colonial Salt Beef, have been accepted at prices which will amply remunerate the Breeders of Cattle for their gi eat expense in rearing them, as well as for the distress they have suffered from the late low prices. Upon an average of the whole, it is be- lieved that Government will pay £80. per ton, for all the beef they require. The quantity originally advertised for, was 240 tons ; and the sum which will be drawn by the Country, from the Commissariat Chest, will, therefore, amount to £7,200. In what manner this golden stream will flow, among Coopers, Curers, Salt Makers, Butchers, Graziers, and a long train of subsidiary agents, cannot he determined ; but as it must infallibly spread its enliven- ing influence amongst the whole of them, the most distant parts of the Colony will immediately feel the benefit of the pro- cedure. We have long called in vain upon the mer...

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the "Sydney Herald." Sydney, May, 1832. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 21 May 1832

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editors of the "Sydney Herald." Sydney, May, 1832. GENTLEMEN,- Among the many subjects to which the attention of our excellent Governor,   General Bourke, could he called, and which closely   concerns the interests of the Country entrusted to his care, I can safely affirm that the one of the roads is of paramount importance. Situated as we are in a Colony, deprived by na- ture of water carriage, our first and most particu- lar attention ought to be turned towards our roads. In the Mother Country, where partially the same defect exists, every exertion is made, and no ex- pense is considered too great, either to save the distance or the hills of their roads. The prospe- rity of this Colony must depend on two things. First, on the reduction of the imports of such arti- cles as we can produce ourselves ; and secondly, on the increase of our exports. I have no doubt but you are aware that the soil in the vicinity of the coast is e...

EAST INDIA NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 21 May 1832

EAST XXroXA HEWS. SiNcvraKK.-The vessels which arrived during the week from China, have brought us Canton Newspapers to the 1st, and private intelligence to the 18th of October. From the former we have made a few extracts. The intelligence brought' by the last arrival is, however, of so 'important a nature as to de- mand serious > attention. The following is an ex- tract of a letter of the 18th ult., from a gentle- man at Macao, to n -merchant at this settlement " An express reached us yesterday from Canton stating, that five officers walking on Dane's Island, were attacked by Chinese, and being much in- jured and beaten, retreated. One ot -the H. C. Ships, sent an armed boats crew to their aid. One Chinese was killed, and four cither killed or severely wounded. AU Canton is in a fer- ment, and the trade will of course be stopped, for how long it is to be seen ; but the Viceroy is on his return from Pekin, and may settle matters more quietly than the Deputy Governor.'"

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 21 May 1832

EKTCX.ISH EXTRACTS. At a sitting of the Helvetic Society of Natural Sciences, a letter was read from Dr. Flaehiii, of Yvcrdun, relative to an experiment before men- tioned ti the society, in which the ball was pre- vented from leaving the bottom of a musket when the gunpowder was fired, simply by putting the ramrod upon the ball, and the end of the finger upon the ramrod. He supposes the effect may be explained by the circumstance, that near the charge the ball has a very small velocity compared to that impressed upon it by the expansive force of the gases from the fired gunpowder, when exerted during the whole of the time in which it is passing along the barrel. It is well known that the effect thus accumulated is the reason why long pieces earry further than short ones j anti why the breath of a man, which cannot exert a pressure of more than a quarter of an atmospheric, may, by means of a tube, throw a ball to the distance of sixty steps. The experiment requires great care, «spec...

POLICE INCIDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Sydney Herald — 21 May 1832

POLICE INCIDENTS. -ooo- THURSDAY,-Thomas Connell, well known as one of the swell mob, was placed at the bar, in a bang-up coat, overalls, camels-hair gloves, and a travelling cap, having been picked up in that attire the previous evening, with the addition of a lighted cigar stuck between his grinders, on suspicion of il-   legally walking the streets, instead of retiring to roost, Thomas stated, that fresh air was very neces- sary for his constitution, he therefore, had certainly just taken a stroll. Three days milling. Henry Shipton, an importation from "the first flower of the earth, and first gem of the sea," was handed to the bar by a strong body of the possee Commitatis, as he appeared in a state bordering on frenzy, originating from the rum fever. The charge against him was for pounding a constable heartily the previous evening, informing him at the same time, that this was the true meaning of the adage, " bray a fool in a mortar." The bench, to cool him, sent hi...

I WEDNESDAY.-James Topham was indicted for a highway robbery, putting in bodily fear, and   stealing from the person of John Webb, a pistol,   the property of the King, at Parramatta, on the   1st of March.

It was prin- cipally from the Hawkesbury and Appin. A few parcels of barley would be readily purchased, if of good quality. Those settlers who have not already got in their wheat, ure busily employed in that occupation. The whole face' of the country wears a promising appearance, and plenti- ful crops are expected. A rise is expected in cat l tie, in consequence of the number required for salting.
