Poetry. ORIGINAL AND SELECTED. TO PITY. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 3 March 1855

Poetry. ORIGINAL AND SELECTED. ?TO PITY". [BY WILLIAM SMYTH. On, Pity! all my sighs are thine! My follies pause, my bosom warms, My musing griefs to bliss refine, Whene'er I mark thy sorrowing forms: The love-lorn maid that long believed, Now sinking wan, now undeceivcd; Or him, 'mid fortune's gathering gloom. Condemned the smile of bliss to wear, While baffled hope and rankling cate His generous heart consume ; The exile grey, when start to view The tears that speak the exiled soul; T.'ie mother, ns she bids adieu, And turns, her anguish to control; The hectic form, the beauteous maid. That just as life its charm display'd, To death devoted, glides away With brilliant eye, that watery gleams, While still the rosy spectre dreams Of many a morrow gay. Oh, Pity ! not with careless mein, With folly's smile, unmoved and cold, Not thus I view even fiction's scene, And all the weeping muse has told; But oft as passion's hapless tale, Or storied griefs my heart assail, By wasted lamp, at m...

Literature. MILITARY SYSTEM OF FRANCE. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 3 March 1855

MILITARY SYSTEM FRANCE. Thb French have always been fond of military glory, and have invariably placed the most unhesitating confidence in their prowess in war. Their arms have, in deed, at various times been crowned with the most splendid success, and yet no na tion has ever experienced greater reverses or more signal defeats. At present (A. d. 1840), the French government maintains a large standing army, rated, even on the peace establishment, at ,'311,412 men, and 62,142 horses.

TURON. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 3 March 1855

TULiON. The state of the weather being the all absorbing topic, we of the Turon may be thankful that we have not to record any "ideatha from the extreme heat of the sun, although we are not without a great many Ysases of bronchitis and influenza, arising 'froih the sudden change in the atmosphere. It is raining, and from the appearance of the last two days, I think we are likely to have more rain than will suit our river diggings. The showers have had a genial influence in covering our hills and valleys with a most 'luxuriant verdure, that will enable our old ?friend, Tom the milkman, to supply us with the genuine article at a cheaper rate than he has been able to manufacture it at this laBt few weeks. They have also been the means of preserving the cattle and horses in this neighbourhood, as you could discover no traces of vegetation within many miles ' of the Turon. ^ .'The sudden disappearance of two diggers from this place about fourteen days ago, has created no little conjectur...

Summary of Mining Intelligence. THE GOLD FIELDS OF THE OVENS DISTRICT. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 3 March 1855

Summary of Mining Intelligence. THE GOLD FIELDS OF THE OVENS DISTRICT. . SPUING Crkkk.-The mining operations on this creek during tlie last week have been decidedly more active than for some time past. We have observed several new parties who have lately set in, and who are "working on a large scale, and with great industry. There are a considerable number .of persons still at work at the ' New Hush ' on Spring Creek, who are doing well. In our last we reported the finding of a nugget, weighing 2 to 3 dwls., whereas the weight should have been stated at 2 to 3 ozs. The township (Beechworth), as is usually the case afrer any excitement, has been com paratively dull since the termination of the race meeting, notwithstanding improvements are daily being made, and several new ?buildings fire approaching completion.

FREDERICK'S VALLEY. WENTWORTH GOLD FIELD COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 3 March 1855

FREDERICK'S VALLEY. WKNTWORTU GOLD FIKLD COMPANY. The above company have determined to throw open their gold field, at Frederick's Valley to the public, under the same regu lations as at the Turon, and what may be considered a very moderate fee £1 sterling per calendar month. We hail it as a step in the light direction, and we trust the liberality of the Directors will meet its re ward. From the known richness of the ground a large influx of diggers to that locality will take place, and if as successful as those who were allowed to dig for one month before it passed into the hands of the company, new life and spirit will doubtlessly be imparted to this district and this gold field be tested in a manner far beyond the means of any company. There are about 1800 acres of land, nearly the whole of which is indicative of the existence of gold and of precisely a similar character. We understand that the instructions given to the company's representatives - Messrs. Daniel and Perrot, who w...

THE STATE TRIALS. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 3 March 1855

THE STATE TRIALS. We abridge the following account of "the trial of the Balaarat prisoners from the Argus reports of the 23rd, 24th, 26th, and 27th ult. : Thursday, 22nd February, 1855. The court sat at ten o'clock. It being known that the Balaarat prisoners, com mitted on a charge of high treason, would be tried to-day, long before the usual hour of the opening of the Court House, it was thronged outside by numbers eager to gain admittance. One hundred and eighty persons had been summoned as jurors. These had been admitted by the police, along with the several witnesses, through aside gate, and they speedily filled the body and one of the galleries of the court. At ten punctually the front doors of the court-house were thrown open, and a strong rush of the public took place. As Boon as the court was crowded, the Sheriff ordered the doors to be shut, and no further number admitted ; but still, during nearly the whole of the day, a large assem blage of people were waiting outside the...

PEOPLE LIVING IN GLASS HOUSES SHOULD NOT THROW STONES. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 3 March 1855

PEOPLE LIVING IN GLASS HOUSES SHOULD NOT THROW STONES. I IT will be remembered that re | ferring-in a recent number-to the approaching STATE TKIALS ill conneclion with the refusal of the Governor to grant a general amnesty to the ' Balaarat rebels,' we took occasion to point out the certain disgrace and discomfiture that awaited the Government if the proposed trials were prosecuted, and hinted that policy if not mercy should urge the advisability of i; s desisting from a course fraught with so many dangers to itself. Even to persons not behind the scenes, and who merely formed their opinions from what they heard and read in the pub lic journals, it was evident that an investigation into the various matters connected with the Bal aarat disturbances would result in the exposure of many circum stances highly discreditable to the Government, and of a nature to irritate and disgust an already sufficiently-offended public. The wanton brutality displayed on the occasion of the taking of th...

Local and Domestic. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 3 March 1855

Local and Domestic. ECCLESIASTICAL.-The visit of the clergyman of the parish to Beechworth has been attended with the most gratifying results. The attendance at Divine Service on Sunday, both morning and evening, was excellent, especially at that in the evening, and far mora numerous than we could have anticipated. This shews that the requirements of the religious part of community have not been met by the erection of the Wesley an place of worship. Our own opinion is, that the greater the number of churches and chapels, the^ greater the number of their frequenters. A meeting was held on Monday evening, ? at the Assembly Rooms, relative to the appointment of an assistant to the clergy man, to reside at Beechworth; this also was well attended. In the unavoidable ab sence of Mr. Turner, the resident commis sioner, the Rev. Mr. Searle was' requested to take the chair.
