POETRY. A HIGHLAND SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 12 October 1855

POETRY. A HIGHLAND SONG.' (From the Melbourne Magazine») I loved the land o' heath and hill, Where bearded thistles wave, Where daisies woo the crystal rill To kiss their.winter's grave; Whar' ance aneath the broomy knowe, I woo'd my winsome dame, An' watched the sun's retiring low, Ere wo gaed linkin' hnme. I lo'e the land whar' ance a cot, Sac sweetly set was seen, Wi' ivy clad, a hallowed spot, To spend a winter's e'en; Wi' witic dear, an' ingle cheek, I'll' gladly did I fen: AVhen a' unseen 'mang enrlin' reek, Young love can' dancin' ben. I lo'e the land whar' summer gales, In gentle breathings stir, To boar o'er a' her lovely vales, The lay I sing to her; ; Twin England fair, in beauty blest, Shine ! Ireland's brighter star, I love them,—"land of mountain mist," '< * I love thee better far!

CORRESPONDENCE. A TRIP TO WELSHPOOL. To the Editor of the Gipps Land Guardian. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 12 October 1855

CORRESPONDENCE. A TRIP TO WELSHPOOL. To the Editor of the Gipps Land Guardiav. Dear Sir,—As you know, I camc down to take a view of Gipps Land, that is, as much as could bo conveniently explored during the weekly trip of the snug little steamer, Storm 13ird. I will give you, in a few lines, my experiences of one day to AVelshpool, accompanied by my friend . We started yesterday morning at 8 a.m. from the door of Mr. Gellion's comfortable and hospitable Port Albert Hotel, in a strong well-horsed spring cart, and as you may not be aware of the relative positions of the three town ships of Port Albert, Alberton, and Tarraville, I may state that the first is situated on the the point of a neck of land, formed by the two rivers Albert and Tavra, the second on the Albert, about four miles distant, in a north north-westerly di rection, and the third on the Tarra, distant also about four miles in a north-easterly trend, and as the three townships are as nearly as possible dis tant from each...

VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 12 October 1855

VARIETIES. A Difference,—Glasses reflect with out talking-, lasses talk without reflecting-. That's the difference between lasses and "•lasses. The difference between a carriage horse and a carriage wheel is thisone goes best when tired, and the other don't. A Mistake.—Three Protestant, ladies took shelter in a Romnn Catholic Chapel in Ireland during- a storm. The priest, noticing- and knowing- them, whispered to his attendant, " Three chairs for; the Pro testant ladies." The sacristan, mistaking the priest stood up and'shouted to the con gregation, "Tln-ee cheers for the Protes tant ladies," which the congregation im mediately took up, and gave three hearty cheers,, while the clergyman actually stood dumbfoundered. / "Pray, sir," said an old lady to a very pompous looking- gentleman who was talk ing loudly about steam communication the other day, "Pray, sir, what :is steam?" "Steam, ma'm, is ah!—steam is—eh! ah! —steam is—steam!" " I knew that chap could't tell, ye,'' said a rough-...

CROWN LAND SALES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 12 October 1855

CROWN LAND SALES. Subjoined will be found, an account of the sale of Crown Lands by Mr. E. T. Newton, tlie Government* Auctioneer, at the Police Office, Alberton, on the 9th and 10th instant. The land submitted on the 9th consisted entirety of Alberton town allotments, a few of which were sold at the upset of £50 per acre. On the 10th the land comprised 31 suburban lots. The attendance was good, and for some of the allotments having frontages on the River Albert, prices ex ceeding the upset were obtained, as will be seen by our report. Many of the farms were too large for suburbans, and their purchase beyond the means of many of the working agriculturists, a circumstance that should be remedied in future surveys, and especially when the land, as in this instance, is situated from six to nine miles of the sea ports. It will be noticed that those por tions undisposed of are chiefly the larger sections, and it is probable that had they been apportioned into lots of twenty to fifty acre...

THE EARL DUNDONALD. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 19 October 1855

THE EARL DUNDONALD," As a boy lie became a sailor, and Avon, liis" way by hard work—possibly also by the interest of some cousin ■ thirteen times removed. Any how ho got a ship to com mand ; and the sailors on board soon found that if any prize-money were to be had, lie; knew were to find it, and would g'o much out of his way. to get at it,—all very pleasant to Jack', with whom he became popular, and not unfairly sought to..ingra tiate himself. But his commander, Lord Gambier, was a saint; Lord Cochrane Was not, and so they quarreled. This might have passed: but lie quarrelled also with the Board of Admiralty, by seeking to re dress the wrongs of sailors and make their position better. He was warned to desist, but that was not liis way; and to enforce ;attention to. his . case lie purchased the seat for the borough of Honiton at a cost of" some £5000 out of the £,100,000 he had made in prize-money.

THE QUARTERS REVENUE. The Revenue Returns just published are undoubtedly satisfactory, and indicate the wonderful elasticity of the resources of the colony. The receipts under the head of "Gold" have been subjected to so many influences during the last twelve months, that in comparison of the quarter just ter minated with the corresponding quarter of last year, or of the :year which ended on the tJOth ult. with the previoiis year, would be of very little value 5 it is sufficient to say that the falling off in this department of the revenue is not so great as some parties have anticipated it would be; the gold receipts, including export duty, for the year ended. 30th September, 1855, having been £395,050 7s. lid., against . £456,062 8s.: 0d., for the previous twelve months, showing a decrease of only £61,012 0s.
