While we unfefcnedly congratulate our Catholic fellow.subjects upon their attain ment of the rights and privileges of free-born Englishmen, we are glad that prudential means have been tuken for the security of the Church of England. We repeat we are glad of this, although we are anything but friendly to the great political power and exorbitant wealth of that Church. But »ue numan uunouos are a body, possessing great political influence, and whom persecu tion has united in the most sacred bonds. If we turn over the pages of history, we shall spe that the Catholics grossly abused power, when in their hands— from the like charge wa will not attempt to exonerate the Church of...

Is it true that the Jailor of this town employs prisoners ,who are committed for the Criminal Court to work for him, and allows them to leave the interior of the jail walls as an indulgence ? Is it true that the Jailor was absent on Wednes day, either attending t» his farm or dairy, when James Marr, a prisoner committed for the Crimi nal Court, got oujt and was at large? Is it true that this said Marr was at large from 2 o'clock P. M. until 5 o'clock without being missed,? It is true that a man, named Marr, did by some means, not yet explained, make his escape from the jail on Wednesday last, and was seen habited with the dress of the penitentiary, viz, yellow and black !— This was in theallernoon.

TO THE QUEEN OF MY HEART. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 21 September 1829

TO THE QUEEN OF MY HEART. Bg Percy By the Shelley. Shall we roam, my lore, To the twilight grove, When the moon is rising bright ; Ob, I'll whisper there, What 1 dare not in broad day-light ! I'll tell thee a part Of the thoughts that start To being when thou art nigh ; And thy beauty more bright Than the stars' soft light, Shall seem as a weft from the sky. . When the pale moonbeam On tower and stream Sheds a flood of silver sheen, Bow I love to gaze As the cold ray strays O'er tb v face, my heart's throned queen ! Wilt thou roam with me To the restless sea, And linger upon the steep, And list to the flow Of the waves below How they toss and roar and leap ? Those boiling waves, And the storm that raves At night o'er their foaming crest, Resemble the strife That, from earliest life, The passions have waged in my breast. Oh, come then and rove To the sea or the grove When the moon is rising bright, And I'll whisper there In the cool night air What I dare not in broad day-light. — OOO...

BUSHRANGING DEATH-STRUCK. It is with mixed feelings of great p'easure and of deep distress, that we proceed to to narrate the downfall uf Bu£hranging, or at least on this side of the isL.ud. We at e pained to see human beings so care less of their w« lfar- , both here a ad here after, as wilfully to throw away their chance of liberty, and also their more pr cious lives, merely to wander is the bush for a few mi nihs, harassing and distressing the Set tlers, and plundering them of an immense property in the aggregate, with but little be nefit to themselves, and at a double risk of their (if well-beUaved) precious lives ; be cause they are never safe, they never can eat a meal in peace and security, and it m»y be truly said of these in .* criptural language ? — '* they eat the bread of fear and trem bling.'

Heart, so anxious and so pained, Filling ib thy wo : My native laud, what have 1 gained By wandering from thee so i Fairer green bedecks thy fields, Lovelier blue thy skifE, Cooler shade thy forest yields. Dew brighter od thee lies. Thy sabbath-bells a sweeter note Echo far and near : Thy nightingale's melodious throat Thrills more sweet the ear. Softer flow thy lavish streams Through the meadow's bloom ; Oh, how beautiful the dreams 'Meaih thy linden's gloom 1 Fair thy sun and temperate, Genial light and heal : To my father's household gate Let me bend my feet ; There, forgetting all the past, 1 will rest my limbs at last.
