The South Bourke Standard. FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 6TH, 1863. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 6 February 1863

]?.RIDAY, FEBRUARY Oru, 1803, ANoTuUn migration of our population to the neow G(olden Isle is just now at its height. Hundreds are almost daily leaviig our shores to gather thb riches said to be thickly de posited in the Lake Regions of the Central Province of Now Zealand ; each one expecting to be the lucky finder of many pounds' weight of the precious deposit-all bent upon leaving fields of equal promise lying around them in every direction. Nothing daunted by the bitter experience of others, who have returned to their homes broken down and disheartened, they now rush away, only thinking of the 'lucky few who have secured largo prizes in the doubtful lottery, and never dreaming of the great multitude who drav nothing but bhinklts, or at best sufficient for a bare exis tence. Experienco in such a case as this appears to be lost on the Victorian digger; for no sooner has he replenished his purse after returning fromn one rush which has proved to be worthless, than lie is eager to jo...

HAWTHORN LITERARY ASSCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — South Bourke Standard — 6 February 1863

IAWTHORN LITERARY ASSCIA TION, Last Monday evening Mr. James Smith delivercd his lecture on the "Romance of the Stage," before the moeibers of the above As sociation. The Heon. G. .Dufty, President of the society, occupied the chair, and intro duced the lecturer with a few complimentary remarks. Mr. Smith observed that the footlights of the theatre constituted the boundary of two worlds; on the one side were those who wore to be amused, and on the other the real hard and practical business of those who provided that amusemnent. It formed no part of his present purpose to advocate the drama or de fend the stage. His object was to relate in teresting facts concerning those whose lives were passed behind the scones. They were no better nor worse than other people; but if an actor tippled, or an actress was frail, it was soon known to the public. The worst that could be said of theatrical characters was, tliht 'thley were .variciously ambitious of praide,' and morbidly sensitive to ridi...

ib the Editor of the Standard. Sin,-There are many things which iii theory ap pear most excellent, yet when woseek to reduce theon to practice, they present what appear to bo almost insuperable, dificulties. A thorough knowledge ol the causes which create the obstacles,'nnd: knowing them,'a deternined will to destroy them is'the only course which can be taken to establish the required good. The ancient philosophers appear to havo well understood this, and the method they adopted for the acquisition of this knowledge is well worth our imitation.'' Plutarch, in his Banquet of the Seven Wise Men, well illustrates this; and it is well worth the reading for those who seek enjoynment fromn such sources. In ail ago when mutual instruction classes and discussion associations are so prevalent, an ac quaintance witl the habits. manners, and customs of these ancient worthies would bo no loss to us. These intellectual treats are no longer confined to the philo sopher and the sage. They are no l...
