_ Song» TO- __, Fain would I rouse my lyre fiom sleep, And wake at onee the serious song ; But hands like mine refuse to sweep, Tims; solemn-sounding chords along ' Yet hear-as if a voice in air, Came to thine ear, its source unknown As though another's ttoids tbey were, Oh 1 hear-and make (bat song tbino own, 'Tis not from age alone we learn, How vain is every fond desire ; Even while youth's lights unclouded barn. Our pleasures fade-our hopes expire ! ! And fancy droops, and )oys are flown, And sweet domestic love is fled ; The power of Heav'us blest faith alone, Rests firm-unshaken, midst the dead. Thy form is fair, and o'er thy mind, The polish'd graces sweetly play; Then deem not gifts like thine designed, To fling iii careless sport away ! 'Tis thine, like the soft-falling ev'n, To shroud in sweotness virtue's light ; To win the soul, thou clmrm'st, for Heav'n, , And lead it, gently to the right. 'Tis thine lo bless some good man's prayer, Witb Heaven's best gift, a viituous w...

The following excellent little article shewing the general style of the writing of the day, we copy from the Herald of the 29th Dec' Those honourable and most considerate members of the " collective wisdom" of the nation who wish to engage the present Government in prosecutions against the Press, by the way of putting down the disturbances which aro the inevitable and nof -unfoicseen result of the impoverished and debased eonditio» of the labouring classes, have not taken any hostile jiotioe of the most inflammatory production that has issued from the great and dreaded engine of illumination in modem times ;-a production, however, which Ministers are not likely to prosecute, inasmuch as they have themselves ' licen accessaries, before the fact, to its publication.

The letter of a Tasmanian, enquiring of us, what are the duties of a Governor, in itself means nothing, for every one mutt be awure the Governor of any Colony is merely the father of a large family.

On the 27tb ult. I called on the Doctor, at the instance of another gentleman with a private communication, as a mere act of courtesy, and without the least desire to agitate any of the questions discussed at the Public Meeting, but the Doctor having followed me to the step of his door, himself commenced the subject of the Aborigines, and gave me to understand,...
