SCRUB LANDS. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 16 March 1867

SCRUB LANDS. The agricultural after-dinner discussion at StrathaSbyn on Thursday week, vrhich is reported at some leugth in another column, elicited some points of special interest to this district. It is rarely, indeed, that these show dinner speeches assume so practical a turn, or afford so much matter for future reflection. When they do one of the real benefits which such gatherings are always designed to afford may be regarded as accomplished, and we have rarely been present at a more satisfactory meeting of the kind than this. We have frequently written in these columns upon the question of utilizing the scrub lands ; and as this was one of the pro minent subjects of discussion at the Strath albyn dinner we propose to follow up what was said then with some further remarks naturally arising from the observations of Mr Hogarth and Mr Rankiue. The present position of the question was plainly stated by Mr Ward. The Act itself embraces all the concessions that were asked for as to t...

THE ROMANCE OF SWINDLING. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 16 March 1867

THE ROMANCE OF SWINDLING. ? i Between three and four months ago, a young man j of gentlemanly beariug and varied accomplishments j was admitted to the circles of the upper ten in Clifton, during a brief residence here. He went by the name of Captain Patrick Chisholm Hay, was a very extensive ' swell ' in his way, spent money freely, had first- I class appointments, was liberal to his companions, and, in slang parlance ' did the extreme heavy.' His first appearance in Bristol, however, was hardiy so deshing and stylisb. Coming from no one knew t whence, he took up his quarters at the Saracen's Head, which, after a brief sojourn, he quitted for tbe Adam and Eve, in Wine-street. At first, he only asked for a bed for a single night, and, being of agreeable manners and a well spoken man withal, | Mr Rnowland admitted him. Tbe stay was pro longed dav by dav. The stranger — although be gave himself out as a captain of the array — had at this time very little clothes, aud what he Iiad vveie...

MILANG. Milang, March 14. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 16 March 1867

MILANG. [From onr own Correspondent; Milang, March 14. There is very little news stirring here af present. Our cricketers are not at all damped by their defeat at Port Elliot, and- are looking forward to their next meeting with their opponents at Milang with good hopes of re gaining their laurels. We are about losing one of our most influ ential farmers — H. Pavy, Esq., J.P., who, having let his property in this neighborhood, is about to remove to another locality. During his short residence here Mr Pavy has endeared himself to all by his affability, liberality, and sociability, and his removal will be a great loss to the neighborhood. Among the ' wants' of this township the chief at present is a Police-Station and Court House. The station at present in use is a four-roomed cottage ; but although an excel lent family residence, it is not suited for the safe custody of prisoners. A police court (particulars of which I enclose) was held in the station to day,, the sitting extending ov...

Our practitioners will, I j imagine, en'er no plea against ejectment from the j dingy walls and sentry-box dimensions of tbe old i forum ; still my impression is that sufficient atten- ! ti-^n has not been paid' to tbe ceiling of tbe new ) Court-House.

A TRIP THROUGH THE STATES AND CANADA, [From the Bierald's Correspondent, j Toronto, November 6. It is not; an easy matter to arrive at a correct knowledge of the present etate of the Fenian movement. Those who imagined lhat with the disastrous defeat of the late ex pedition, and the capture of some of the ring leaders, that thereby Fenianisin was effectually * stamped out' would, were they at the present time on American soil, find themselves con siderably mistaken ; while on the other hand ?were one to believe all the reports and highly seasoned telegrams that find their way into the New York papers, and which are there exhibited in the biggest type the office can muster, he would almost be inclined to believe that British rule in America was nearly at an end, and that the spoliation and annexation of Canada were but events of time. While receiving the statement of the New York press with many a grain of salt, and after making all due allowance for that sensa tionalism and exciteme...

POETRY. \ SLAIN AT SADOWA. (The following incident has been reported in the Vuily Tde/trapiCs Correspondence.) The cannon were belching their last O'er the fields -where the rou'ed were flying. And fhiiuting pursuers strode fast Throngb the heaps of the dead and the dying. War's rage was beginning to -wane ; The fierce cared no longer to strike ; And the good stooped to soften the pain Of victors and vanquished alike. A yellow-haired Austrian lad Lay at length on a shot furrowed bank ; He'^was comely and dainli'y clad' In the glittering dress of his rank. Not so white, though, his coat as his cheek, Nor so red the £ash crossing his chest As the horrible crimson streak Of the blood that had welled from his breast: Ills foes approached where he was laid, To bear him in reach of their skill ; But lie murmured, *' Give others your aid ; By our Fatherland ! let me lie still.' At dawn they came searching sgain, To wii:now the quick from the dead ; The bey was set free from hia pain, And h...
