Original Poetry. THE AUSTRALIAN MERMAID'S SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Illawarra Mercury — 19 January 1857

Original Poetry. THE AUSTRALIAN MERMAID'S SONG. BY HENRY MOSS. I come from the deep, where my fair sisters sleep In their bright halls of coral beneath the blue waves, Where dark caves unfold their vast treasures of gold, And pure gems encircle the countless graves. On the wings of the morn, ere, like widow forlorn, Dark night on the storm-cloud speeds far, far away, I hie to the stream, where, beneath the moonbeam, The elves of the waters all joyously play. Then hoist we our sail to the soft summer's gale, Our bark, the tall lily bold, launched on its tide;   And, in its smooth breast, we oft peacefully rest; As swift on its bosom we merrily glide. From the depths of the ocean, all wild in commotion, I gather sweet pearls from 'neath its fathomless shrine. And shells without number, when ocean doth slumber,   To grace the fair brow of my loved Undaline. O bright is the spirit, whose love for to merit, The earth were all valueless, were she but mine. &a...

? %igctUaitm. ? Novel Six-wheel Waggon. — We are indebted to a :orrespondent (a working man) for tho following des cription of a newly constructed vehicle, just finished by himself, for Mr. Randle, tho railway contraeter. He says : — ' When the boilers for the Botany Water Works, were ubout to bo shipped in England, 'l was asked by Mr. R. if I thought 1 could get a waggon ready to receive them and ennvev them to IW.nnv. T tnl,l Jilm'l r««i one, and questioned him as to size,- but ho could not Toll precisely. He said tho boilers wero about 49 feet long, 20 tons weight, and that M r. Randle wished to have a waggon if possible, with six wheels. After thinking ovei^the matter, I coneieved the idea, that if 1 put a carriage be hind, the same as the front, minus the shafts, I should bo able to make tho hind wheels follow tho front wheels, independently ot the middle ones, I have done so, and the waggon will be through Sydney in a day or two. Tho timber carriage (for so I must call it) has...

-®1}£ ffirfrnpalk Destructive Fire in Sydney. — Another extensive and alarming fire occurred in Sydney about half-past twelve on Tuesday morning, on the premises of Messrs. Foss, Son, and Co. From tho accounts in the Sydney papers, it would appear that the firo was first observed by some of the police, who immediately awoke the inmates of the burning building, nnd those adjoining it. The whole of the City and Water Police were soon on tho spot, followed by five fire-engines. After a delay of about half-an -hour in discovering tho plug from whence a Bupply of water could bo obtained, tho engines com menced playing on the firo, with varying success, until about half-past two, wlion they had secured a decided mastery over if. On account of the inflamablo nature ol the goods in the store — chemicals, drugs, and matches— and the contiguity of large drapery and furniture ware houses, great fears were entertained for some time that tho flames would extend its ravages.

'A LETTER, which recently appeared in the \Sydney Morning Herald, and is now printed off ??as a circular, has been forwarded to us by the .writer, Mr. W. B Allen, entitled 'Protective ?Duties on Australian Industry.' We do not ?intend, to-day, to enter into an investigation of .cue views expressed in tins letter j but to con fine our remarks to a particular point which the reading of it has suggested to our mind. Mr. Allen is a strong advocate for protective duties on all mechanical productions; deeming them likely to foster and stimulate a spirit of independent exertion among our people, and to preclude reliance on foreign supplies. TVe have strong doubts about the correctness of his theory, and the probablity of its being realised to any practical advantage. On this subject, however, we must take another opportunity of expressing our thoughts. But the branch of industry which we are going to introduce, and which we deem fundamental to the whole question, seems scarcely, or not at ...
