LADY JANE GREY—TO MISFORTUNE. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 25 October 1843

LADY JANE GREY— TO MISFORTUNE. 'Think, nottlrttt I repine. beneath thy power, Best friend, but sternest teacher of mankind! Thy wings hear healing when they darkest lower, And bring self-kuowledgc to the inward blind. Thou dost awake the rich tones of the mind, Filling the soul with melody unknown . To the proud vauntings of the prosperous hour. Blest are the temperate thoughts by thce n fined! For Virtue loves to wait upon thy throne ; Awl whom thou uhastuuest, she delights to cheer, Ami clings to him until thine ire is gone. Then he forgets who dried the scalding tear, And bra vis again the wrath of the high God, As tho' he ne'er Lad kissed His kindly-chastening rod.'.

SONNETS. MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 25 October 1843

S O X N L T S, 15Y B. «'. LA.KDOK, ESQ. MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS. ' Mike ryes ure dim with weeping ; all the past O'er-flows, and on its dark und stormy tide Bcaretli the wreck which it will never hide ; Hopes are eugulphed, but griefs, more buoyant, lait. These threads unheeded through my fingers glide, Yet in ray joyless state they bear a charm, Soothing this troubled spirit into calm ; Tiiesc and this Holy Book are left me still. But with my friends my deadliest foes arc fled, The proud, high thoughts that worked me deepest ill, Leaving that peace which rests upon the dead. I can forgive even those who seek to kill — fiven thee, Eliza, proudest of the free ! — But tbeu must learn to grieve, 'ere thou forgivest me.'

YORK AGRICULTURAL MEETING. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 25 October 1843

YORK AGRICULTURAL MEETING. The annual show of stock for the Society's prizes was held at York on Friday last. The fair was not so numerously attended as last year, neiliier was the quantity of stock for sale so great as on preceding occasions, people gene rally feeling rather shy of purchasing 6tock in the present uncertain state of the market. Sales of different kinds of stock were, however, effect ed to the amount, in the aggregate, of £800* at about the following prices : — Horses from £26 to £40, according to quality; cows, £8 8s.; cow and calf, £9 9s. ; fat oxen, weighing about 500ibs., £13. The only ewes actually sold con sisted of a lot of culls, for which the price was 7s. ; these were very inferior. The price for good ewes may be quoted at 25s. Several lots of wethers, fit for the butcher, were disposed of at £1 per head, but this price was refused in more than one instance. For good wethers, weighing from 50 to 60 lbs., the price may be quoted at £1 5s. Altogether, the imp...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. The heavy rains of the past season have proved highly beneficial to the crops, which, throughout the colony, are .looking exceedingly well. We are told that the wheat is taller and stronger than usual, and, though not yet arrived art ear, gives promise of abundance. There is e\ery prospect that flour will be cheap next season. All kindstof farming-stock are now very plentiful, and of consequence are much reduced in price ; there is, however, a constant demand for butcher's meat ; and fat wethers, barren cwe&, and horned cattle, fetch good price?, and obtain a ready sale.

THE INQUIRER. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 1 November 1843

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER I, 1843. The English news brought by the Slieplierd is not of such late date as that given by us last week from the Indian and Singapore papers ; our summary of which included the chief portions of English intelligence down to the beginning of July. The most important topic of home dis cussion is me siaie or xreiana, wnico country, owing to O'Connell's repeal agitation, has been brought to the verge of actual rebellion, and has been converted into one vast barrack by the quantities of troops that have been poured into it. Extracts from 6ome of O'Connell s speeches at public meetings are now before us, which con tain treason enough to have hanged a dozen men in lees tolerant times ; and it is matter ot great disgust as well as wonder that he should have been allowed to go on so long insulting the government and the nation with impunity. Pri vate letters bear out the public prints in stating that an actual rising is scarcely to be avoided. The government, however, ...

THE INQUIEER. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1843. [Newspaper Article] — Inquirer — 8 November 1843

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1843. We have lately received very many communi cations from various parts of th« colony on the important question of protection to our agricul turists from the foreign importers of wheat and flour, all indicating that public attention has been very generally drawn to the subject and that we may expect a renewal of the corn-law, agitation. Our present No. contains a letter signed ' Unit' the writer of which insists upon the necessity of some protection being given to the colonial farmer, and points out the evil consequences arising to the colony from the want of such protection! We have not space, this v.eck, to reply to our cor respondent, for whom, personally, and for whose opinions upon most matters, we entertain the highest respect, but in our next we shall most probably have something to say ia answer to his own observations, and also with reference to the whole subject of a protective duty.
