AUNT NABBY'S STEWED GOOSE. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 3 July 1851

AUNT NABBY'S STEWED GOOSE. (From the Ginoinatii Chronicle.) It was my Aunt Nabby's birth-day, and | she was bent upon having a stowed goose; I stewed in onions, and with cabbage and salt pork to match. ' Jolijab,' said she to me, '* be'ent we got a goose 'bout the farm V ** No,' said I, 6S we eat the old gander a Christmas, and he wa3 the last of the patri archs.' I Aunt Nabby went down to Sue, who was i getting breakfast. ' Susanna,' said she, 1 ' the boy tells how we be'en got n goose in 1 creation ; now what shall we do?' 1 ' Go without,' replied Susanna, with that 9 amiable tone which so marked her, and 1 and which my father said had worn off her 1 teeth to the gums. 1 But aunt Nabby was benfc upon a goose, 1 and when such a stiff and straight person 1 gets bent upon any thing you may consider I the matter settled ; I saw that a goose of 1 some kind would be had at some rate or I other. 1 ' Here, you critter,' cried aunt Nabby to I the little black specimen of the human .1 famil...

A CROCODILE STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 3 July 1851

A CROCODILE STORY. (From the North British Mail.') We had some talk the other day with one of the very few survivors of the Egyptian expedition under Sir Ralph Abercrombie, who has lived to obtain the Egyptian medal fifty years after it was earned. What a mockery to wait until there were hot, per haps, ten alive in the country, and then award them medals] However, to our story. When the brigade under Sir David Baird was marching up the eastern bank of the Nile, towards Cairo, a number of 8trag»)erg fell behind, unable from fatigue to keep up With the main body. A rearguard was con sequently detached to protect the straoglers and keep them together. One of them, a Highlander* became so exhausted, that his comrades were obliged to leave him to his fUe, He had not been long alone when he saw a large crocodile waddling towards him' and with a very portenlious aspect. Poor Donald eyed the monster as it approached him with feelings of intense alarm ; and although most unable to walk, he m...

THE INTEMPERATE HUSBAND. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 3 July 1851

THE INTEMPERATE HUSBAND. (From tlie Literary SjJedator.J As the reader casts his eye upon this cap tion, he. may be more than half inclined to pass the article by, thinking that little new can be said upon intemperance, or the man ner in which it is created, or its. pernicious effects. This is true. We may not say much that is new, but may we not say some thing which will be useful ? Let us try by telling a tale of solemn truth. Harriets ? was a lovely girl. When we say 'lovely,' we do not mean to say she was a perfect beauty— -(yet she was handsome) — but we wish to say that she had a good heart. Guil. was a stranger to her bosom. Gentle, modes i and kind to the poor, wicked and even un thankful,- she lived beloved, and without an enemy. Her parents were living wheushe was married to a young man who bade fair to make her a good husband, and society a useful member. Her parents consigned her into the hands of William E- .? ? , with the mixed feelings of sorrow and joy. Sorrow, that ...

THE RESURRECTIONISTS. (From ilie Albany Bsquet.) A couple of resurrectionists started for a subject one cold night, in a small covered waggon, and succeeded in finding one — -when they had disinterred the body, they dressed it up in a frock coat, hat, -&c, placed it behind them in their wagon, and started for home. -The weather being very cold, : and coming in sisrht of a tavern, they concluded to stop and 'take a drink,' which they, did, leaving their inanimate companion sitting erect upon his seat with, the horse's reins lying in his lap— ?-the ostler observing three individuals in the waggon when it was driven up — and noticing that but two went .into the house, thought he would inquire : of the third why he did'nt follow his companions: so he walked up to the waggon and asked the reason for his remaining behind — no answer was returned — after questioning the dumb, gentleman some time, be took hold of him and found that his hand was upon a ' dead man !'

LOVE OF COUNTRY. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 3 July 1851

LOVE OF COUNTRY. . (From the Amaranth. 'This is my own, my native land.' Such is the language of poetry, and it finds a triumphant response in human bosoms all over the globe. Whether it be the Green)ander in the realm of eternal winter; or the Arab amid the scorching sands of Zahara, or the Indian in his solitary wiU, it may be said of each, lhat in his own clime would he live, and there would he die. There is his home; there slumbers the hallowed dust of his ancestors ; there is the paternal mansion, in which his infancy was nursed, his childhood caressed and protected, and his maturer years instructed and ad monished. It is his oion language he speaks, and by which he communes with his kindred and friends around him. Local attachments are among the strong est and most permanent of which our nature is susceptible. Who can imagine the feel ings of an exile? Mountains may rise, and rivers roll between him and the land from which he has been cast out or from which he may have exiled ...

THE RIGHTS AND WRONGS OF PROPERTY. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 3 July 1851

THE RIGHTS AND WRONGS OF PROPERTY. {From the Voice of the Nation.) Innumerable are the fine sermons we have heard preached upon that saying of Thomas Drummond's or Stephen Wolfe's, that ' pro perty has its duties as well as its rights.' But, like other fine texts, it only serves to point a moral ; for whereabouts do we find it adorning a tale? If property have its duties, v.Kat are they, and where are they ? Mr. Davern tells us that the duty on which he finds it employed in his neighbourhood is turning out families by the hundred from tenements to which their right is as distinct and inalienable as the landlord's to his rent, or the State's to its taxes. Mr. Connor's personal experience enables him to define the rights of property to mean the privilege of immunity from exposure (the royal pre rogative of doing no wrong ;) and its duties the prosecution for sedition of any one who lets in the daylight of truth upon its iniqui ties. The duties of property, in this sense, we have most ...

MAITLAND. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 3 July 1851

MA1TLAN.D. The ' SeArcii for Gold. — Ihe result of the test applied to the piece of slate or shaley limestone sent dov)'ix by a magistrate dating from Tamworth (alluded to in our last), is that the yeliow substance (Utilised through it in minute specks was too small in quantity to afford means for an accurate test, but that the jeweller testing believes that it con tains nrold, and should think the locality well worthy a full examination, that if any larger quan tity of the yellow . substance were found it might he 'accurately tested. Beyond this, which we hope is of some promise, no specimen containing gold lias yet reached Maitland. A specimen, pronounced to lie sulphuret of iron, was on Monday evening brought in by a party from Dungog. The amount down on the Maitlaud subscription list for the re ward for 'finding gold in this district, has now reached £327, as will be seen from the advertise ment in another column. — Maitland Mercury.

HOME VIEWS ON COLONIAL TAXATION. [Newspaper Article] — Freeman's Journal — 3 July 1851

HOME VIEWS ON COLONIAL TAXATION. The Australian and New Zealand Gazette says : — The public at home is more interested in checking the lavish expenditure of colonies than may at first sight appear. Of the great need of this overburdened and overpopulated country for the emigration of its surplus population there are no two opinions. If the colonies were left to their own expendi ture, controlled by their own representatives instead of by the nominees of the Govern ment, their first step universally would be to form aa emigration fund for the purpose of sending to England for emigrants at their own expense, thus relieving the mother country of those she can but too well spare, and that without cost to the British public. As a proof of this, the power of regulating their own expenditure is enjoyed by New South Wales and South Australia, and the first use they made of that power was to form such a fund ; in the case of the latter Colony, it has been proposed to go in debt in order to i...

The rain has now ceased, and the wind has risen. The boughs of the trees round the house shake and swing about ; showers of leaves fall ; dry bits of stick are sometimes blown against the windows ; the doors, and shut ters, and window frames rattle ! and other strange sounds are made in the house, as well as outside, by the weather. But in the pauses of the wind, other ...

colonial T$£'m$. VICTORIA. Mr, P O'Donohob, — We are happy to observe that a handsome subscription for Mr. O'Donohoe is about being raised at Port Phillip.

CAMPBELLTOWN.

Fortunately through the exertions of those present the fire was prevented from communicating with the dwelling by pulling down a shed which stood between them otherwise the entire premises would have been re duced to ashes.

MAITLAND. SERIOUS FLOOD. The heavy rains oi the last two dnys have caused the highest flood known in Maitland for many years.
