THE CABINET. THE BROKEN PROMISE. [Newspaper Article] — The Courier — 11 June 1841
THE CABINET. THE BROKEN PROMISE. 1 knew men kept no promises-or none At least with women, and yet knowing this, With credulous folly, still I trusted one, Whose words seemed so like truth, that I forgot The lesson I had learn'd full oft before, And I believ'd, because he said he'd come, That he would come ; and then night after night I watch'd the clouds and saw them puss away From the bright moon, and leave the clear blue sky As spotless and serene and beautiful As if no promises were broken e'er Beneath it. Man forgets in busy hours What in his idle moments he has said, Nor thinks how often woman's happiness Hangs on his lightest words. They are not things Of great importance which affect the heart Most deeply ; trifles often weave the net Of misery or bliss in human life. There's many a deep and hidden grief that comes From sources which admit of no complaint From things of which ive cannot-dare not speak And yet they seem but trifles, till a chain, Link after link, is fastened o...

THE BLACKS. Sir,--With feelings of horror I acquaint yon with tue murder of Mr. Morton and his servant Larry by the blacks ; it happened on Friday or Saturday last. I went over this morning atong with Mr. Cowan and a mau, who followed the track of the dray to where they stripped a little bark about six miles from the station, and much about the same distance from that I found the bodies, (Mr. Cowan was not with me then ;) a little on the right of the track I observed what I considered at first wits a white log with a large eagle hawk pecking upon it ; upon my nearer approach the bird rose slow and heavily from the mangled remains of poor Mr. Morton. He wai stripped quite naked and lying on his face, the greater part of which was actually cut away ; his head is one mass of frightful wounds, and many bruises on different parts of his arms and body, which is torn by birds of prey. About fifty yards nearer the dray lay the remains or skeleton of Larry, from whose bones the flesh had bee...
