Select Poetry. THOUGHTS OF AN OYSTER SEATED ON A GRIDIRON. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 June 1849
Select Poetry THOUGHTS OF AN OYSTER SEATED ON A GRIDIRON. "They've borne me afar from my native bed, Where such a beauty I did grow," &nbsp; And from dredger to dealer, in bustle and dread, I've been tumbled about till I wish'd myself dead ! And now, by my beard, I am pretty well sped, For my frame's in the devil's own glow ! So ho ! what the plague is this piercing my shell ? Sure 'tis flame rising hotter and hotter ! Why, an oystor of quality might just as well Take kitchen floor lodgings in fire-eating h—-, Or make up his mind, like a mumchance, to dwell ln the mullock-stowed maw of an otter ! Accursed is my fate ! I am all shrivell'd up ! Never more shall I rest on the banks Where. before love was crost, I oft tasted the nup- Tial delight to be drawn from the conjugal cup ; Now I'm doom'd to be dish'd, that some boobies may sup, &nbsp; And fatten their indolent flanks. Oh, Neptune ! Oh, Venus ! release a poor oyster, Who swears in the heat of devotion, For the ...

THE PARTING SALUTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 June 1849
&nbsp; &nbsp; THE PARTING SALUTE. &nbsp; &nbsp; When M'Combie imagined the ship was away, The base minded wretch %ÉptP his last parting bray, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Kick'd the foe that he fear'd when he thought he was off Yet—Reynolds is here to reply to his scoff. Though Reynolds may work with a pick or a spade, The mixing of blacking shall not be his trade; His mind is his own, wherever he be, And ne'er shall he scribble for hire like thee. Great vendor of blacking, a spade I can use, Can talk to the million, and talk to the muse; But though I can use either shovels or picks, No lies can I tell, and no Blacking can mix. A number of carts we have got in the hold, To carry our rations,or carry our gold, In case Spanish horses might chance to prove dear, &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Tame donkies might cheaply be taken in btv*. &nbsp; M'Combie the learn'd, a noted Jack-Ass, &nbsp; &nbsp; Woul...
Domestic Intelligence. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 June 1849
Domestic Intelligence. Making the Most of it,—It is rather amusing to observe the disposition evinced by our contemporaries to supply a temporary dearth of news, by manufacturing a little, or being in such a hurry to cater for their readers, as thoroughly to outrun such a slow coach as plain matter of fact. On the same principle, doubtless, as induced Fuseli to express his disgust for Nature, in consequence of her falling so far short of some &nbsp; of his conceptions. The Herald is particularly great in this way, and if people would limit &nbsp; themselves to his headings, they would fancy this was a far more excitable and eventful world, than &nbsp; the dull prosy reality would justify. Monday's issue of that imaginative journal contained an article headed "Bombardment of Canton," in &nbsp; &nbsp; the largest type, from which we were led to expect frightful doings among the celestials, and we were rather astonished on proceeding to pick up t...

The Argus. (Published Daily.) I am in the place where I am demauded of conscience to speak the truth, and therefore the truth I speak, impugn it whoso list." &nbsp; WEDNESDAY. JUNE 27, 1849. THE MONTHLY MAGAZINE.* The first number of this publication &nbsp; has been issued, and we confess we feel &nbsp; some difficulty in classifying it. Printed &nbsp; as a pamphlet and professing to be a &nbsp; Magazine, it is, perhaps by a pardonable fiction "registered as a newspaper," forwarded free of postage, and started * The Australia Felix Monthly Magazine; James Harrison, Geelong; G. Cooper, Mel- bourne. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; with a circulation of 950 copies. Its main feature, however, is so decidedly political, that we think the publication may be fairly treated as an addition to the local Journals, with the trifling ex- ception that it is not destined to contain news. We are earnestly disposed to encourage a taste for literat...
Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Argus. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 June 1849
Original Correspondence. &nbsp; &nbsp; To the Editor of the Argus. &nbsp; &nbsp; Sir,—As a climax to all the services you have rendered me, I request you will insert the ac- companying lines, suggested by hearing the dis- tant braying of one of your long eared contem- poraries. Though the brute has often enough felt the irritation of my poetical goad, he now dared to kick at it, until he thought himself &nbsp; beyond the reach of chastisement. &nbsp; While so many of my fellow passengers are bidding their adieu to friends and acquaintances, I avail myself of the superior advantage which your enlightened columns afford me, of blending all my particular valedictions in the brief compass of one page. The indulgence which you have uniformly shewn to my unpolished numbers, or the soothing prescription you offered, to allay the irritation of what the world facetiously styles yellow fever—demands my warmest acknow- ledgment, and as the patien...

Original Poetry. AN ANTI-CALIFORNIAN LAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Argus — 27 June 1849
Original Poetry AN ANTI-CALIFORNIAN LAY. Bewail ! bewail ! unhappy muse, Your votary so auro-jaundiced. (My rough lament you must excuse, &nbsp; I take the way that came the handiest.) What tempts him to forsake these shores— Abodes of peace and lots of mutton— For California's scanty stores, Where life is hardly worth a button ? Know ye not that there's fever lurking In every swamp and flat and valley ; And in the town there's fellows Burking Their mates in every street and alley. Or will you find it ' pleasant—very' To sit wrapt up in blankets quaking ; A shivering fit won't make you merry, When every limb with ague's shaking ! I don't deny, it may be true, &nbsp; 'Tis just the land for one to die in ; But as for graves, you'll find there's few Have time to dig you one to lie in. That sort of ' digging' does not pay, Unless they light upon a treasure, And then they'll clear the earth away, And leave you lying there with pleasure. Well might that shore bear Charon's...
