The full moon shed her silvery beams on the beautifully romantic windings or links of the North Esk, in whose unruffled bosom the sur rounding scenery was reflected with all its splen dour; all was silent, not a sound was heard, save where the Tamar's softer murmuring wave laving its peaceful banks added greater solemnity to the holiness of night. At iLS* *' ? lovely hour, just fit for silent pondering,' we quitted our Editorial chair, where we had been labouring all day for the good of our fellow colonists, to enjoy the beauties of the night. We gained the summit of the windmill Hill, from whence we looked down upon Launceston, and its many streams, as upon a map. We seated our self at the foot of a Mimosa, (whose branches bending to the ground by their fragrant burden, formed a delightful awning over us) and contin ued to gaze on the beauteous scene. We fell proud of our country, and could sot help wishing to know what Lauuceston would be fifty years hence, wondering if it would b...
