ORIGINAL ENIGMA. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 14 April 1871

ORIGINAL ENIGHIA. I pray you guess the riddle Propounded in this rhyme ; And first and last, and middle, You see it all the time. You need not let It bore you, For all must be agreed It's plain enough before you When you the riddle read. The thing in substance curious, Men could not do without ; The ladies would be furious. Or else they d sulk and pout, •And-well, there is no telling What some of them might do, But all would be rebelling, And something would ensue, If they were but denied it For any length of time. I but attempt to hide it From them and you in rhyme, It's found in every nation That's civilized at all. And lively occupation It gives to great and small, It's always in the city; It's sometimes in the bush, And if it be a pity, It's found at every "rush.' It meves the minds of many In many various ways ; And there are scarcely any In these progressive days, Who do act oft ppse it In sundry shapes and forms. While one will sometimes bless it, Another swears and storms. I...

Original Poetry. THE LORDS OF LABOUR. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 14 April 1871

THE LORDS OF LABOUR. They come, they come, in a glorious march, You can hear their steam-steeds neigh, As they clash through skill's triumphal arch, Or plunge 'mid the dancing spray. Their fre balls blaze in the mighty forge, Their life pulse throbs in the mill; Their lightnings shiver the gaping gorge, And their thunders shake the hill, Ho ! these are the Titans of toil and trade, The heroes who wield no sabre I But mightier conquests reapeth thejblade, That is borne by the Lords of Labour. Bravo hearts, like jewels, light the sod, Through the mists of commerce shine ; And souls flash out, like stars of God, From the midnight of the mine. No palace is theirs, no castlo great, No princely-pillar'd hlall I But tlley well can laugh at the roofs of state 'Neath the heaven which is over all. And laugh they do, and envy too, Their rich and gentle neighbour t And, " if its not poetry, still its true," Of these favourite Lords of Labour. Each bares his arm for the ringing strife That marsh...

THE CERBERUS. [Newspaper Article] — Alexandra Times — 14 April 1871

TIlE CERBERUS It was early in January, 1867, that we first heard of the Cerberus. Mr Verdon had then just returned from his mission to Eng land, and had published his correspondence, with the Imperial autihorities, including a letter from Mr C. B. Adderley, stating that the Earl of Carnarvon, then Secretary of State for the Colonoes, had, in reply to Mr Verdon's representations, obtained from Her Majesty's Government certain concessions in favor of this colony. In that document Mr Adderley said :-- The Comptroller of the Navy will arrange with   you the details of an armour-plated monitor or turret ship, to be constructed by contract in a private yard, but under Admiralty superintendence. said to be capable of carrying 22-ton guns. The cost of the ship is not to excecd £125,000,   of which the colony will furnish £25,000. The cost of armament is to be borne by the colony. The maitenance, manning and command of the ship is to be undertaken by the Colonial Go...

To powerful pens and generous hearts, such as yours. mInust women look for a release ;rom that state of thraldom and absolute dependence into which they have been placed by the " Lords of the Creation." Could anything more unjust be conceived than the law of property as it re ferred to married women. " What is yours is mine, and what is mine is my own," tny brute of a husband could say to hIs wife till with:n the past few months, when Mr Higinbotbam got the wonderful concession that woman has a right to property earned by her own industry. Even this is surroun ded with restrictio- conditions. The next point we must gain is the use of the ballot-. box. There is a principle of English law which states that without representation there can be no taxation. Now, as the prin cipll, is admitted that mrarrild wvotaen can hold p!rnl...

As far as my limited intellect is enabled to grasp the vast details of the cir cumstances connected with the affair, the in timation of his intention to publish the proceedings in the event of being unahle to obtain a ticket, was given by the Independent correspondent previous to the Banquet Committee meeting at which it was decided to invite the printer and pro prietor of the Guardian only to the enter tainment.
