POETRY. ENGLAND DEAR ENGLAND [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 18 January 1856

POETRY. ENGLAND! DEAR ENGLAND! (A Song of Victory, by Charles Mackay.) . Where is, the slave who, of England despairing, I ! Aidsnot'hor cause when she summons her sons? Where is the knave who, when foemen are daring, Parleys for safety or crouches and runs? * England ne'er grew them, Her soil never knew.thorn; Wholesome's the earth in our isle of the sea! ! Our maidens would flout them, Our children would scout them; We'd hoot them with scorn from our land of the free! Foemen may dare us with haughty defiance, ' Low as Sevastopol's tow'rs shall they fall; Strong in the right in immortal alliance,' * England and Prance shall o'ermaster , them, all. Shame and perdition . j • . Shall track their ambition; Justice shall gleam in the glaive that we bear,' And nations benighted To victory lighted • ,i ' i Shall learn from our greatness what free men can dare. . '• v England! Dear England! our fathers before us Bled for thy freedom, and loft us their fame; England, our darling! the'' moth...

SMUGGLING. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 25 January 1856

SMUGGLING. . Smuggling;, there, is no doubt, sharpens the wits of the dullest people. A record of the various contrivances of smugglers would fill a volume with instances ot some of the subtlest efforts of human ingenuity. Ships seem to have been contrived on pur pose to defeat the revenue officers. The forms of vessels and the various contrivan ces to increase their strength afford im mense number of holes, cupboards, and recesses for stowing away contraband goods. A great quantity of articles are smuggled into the country inside the lining of ships—that is, between the inner ana outer planking of the sides; and, although Custom House Officers rummage a vessel all ov.er every time she arrives from a foreign port, they are deceived for months arid years together. An ingenious method of smuggling tobacco, has.: just been dis covered at. one of .the.outposts. .A space formed by the, lining of a mail, steam packet communicated with.a locker,.

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Careless use of Fire.—We think it right to caution our renders at this par- ticular season against the dangerous and     unlawful practice of making fires in the open air, burning stubble, &c., as by so   doing they not only endanger their own   property but that of their neighbours also besides becoming amenable to the law. Fortunately the District of Gipps Land     possesses a more moist and genal climate than any other portion of Victoria ; there- by perhaps requiring less caution with respect to bush fires; but nevertheless such have occurred, and may occur again therefore we say prevent such fearful oc- currences by every possible means.       The Act 17 Vict. No. 8' enforces a penalty of £50, or six months imprison- ment on all persons found guilty of light- ing fires in the open air during the months of November, December, January, a...
