SELECTED POETRY. POOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 13 October 1866

SELECTED POETRY. POOR. What poor, you say. Why, save you, friend, I've more than half the world can show; Such wealth as mine you cannot boast, Such bliss as mine you cannot know. I've more than keenest head can sum, Could ever dream of, night or day; I've treasures hid from sordid hearts No cunning thief can take away. My riches never bring distrust Between me and my fellow-men; No evil passion stirs my breast, To yield me hate for hate again; But pleasure, peace, and joy they bring, They soothe my cares, they make me glad, They give delights I cannot name, And buy me comfort when I'm sad. Come here and open wide your eyes; You see earth's glory at my feet, You see the sky above my head, The sunshine on my garden seat; You see the love that lights my home, The children round my cottage door The birds, the bees, the grass and flowers, And you have dared to call me poor. Come here and open wide your ears, And hark the music morning makes,   When from the hills and from t...

AGRICULTURAL. LUCERNE. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 20 October 1866

AGRI OULTU RAL, LUCERNE, (Fnor THE "Q UEENSLANDER.") TuIs plant is, we believe, without exception the best and most profitable fodder grass yet introduced into this colony. It has long been known in New South Wales, and, where the ground is suitable, has proved itself one of the most remunerative crops grown. Large quantities of hay made from it are annually imported from that colony'; and what is of still greater importance to the consideration of the Queensland farmer, the demand for it seems practically unlimited; whilst its value as green food is sichl as to recommend it to the attention of ev'ery one having stock, No farmer should be without from half an acre to an acre from which to feed the horses, &c., employed upon his farm, even supposing that he may not decide upon adopting it as a regular crop. It possesses the advantages over any other crop of yield. ing a regular supply, when once established, for a number of years, without the necessity of renewing each year, ...

TWO SONNETS—LIFE AND DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 20 October 1866

TWO SONNETS-LIFE AND DEATH, Oh! what is Life ? The sunshine's flashing gleam ! A moving spark in dull, unmoving clay The present on the wing-a passing day A bubble dancing down time's onward stream An opening flower in premature decay'! To him who hopes, a clear and gladsome beam Of heaven-sent light, to cheer his thorny way, An earnest now of future bliss supreme ! To him who fears, a world of anxious care; A low'ring sky-an ominous dark'ning gloom; The present, dark !-beyond, the yawning tomb The future, black and threat'ning everywhere ! Oh God I protect us from such blank despair, With light divine our onward course illume I And what is Death? The withered sapless bough ! The wondrous change when the immortal soul Doffs its frail mantle, starting for thy goal, Lost in the future infinite, 0 thou, Eternity !-When from the shattered bowl Its living tenant flies !-The passage through The gloomy oharnel-house I-The tempest's lull Disunion of the flesh and spirit now, That (when the ...

ALL THE YEA1 2OUV)D UPON LOCAL NEWSPAPERS, ' to Editor of the Exprees. Six-I think that the publication in your columns of the following extract from the above-named periodical would be interesting and instructive to your readers, and conducive to a right appreciation on their part of the benefit derived by any community possessing a local newspaper capable of giving "exact, word-for-word reports" of meetings and other occurrences of local importance : We are all familiar enough with the strange and the remote; learned, to a fault, in distant boundariou of foreign states, the limits of disputed principalities, the quarrels of ministers at Vienna or St. Peotrsbur. But how many of us over looked into our ostry Hall in the noext street, or can toll the name of the man who " represents" us in that building ? The work which local papers set out to perform, and do perform, with more or loss judgment, taste, and skill, is essentially paroolial. Nothing occurring within that bound. ary can ...

PENNY READINGS. To the Editor of the Express. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 20 October 1866

PENNY REA.DINGS. To the Editor of the Express, Sin-Most persons are aware that entertain ments styled "Penny Readings" are very popular in England, and that they have been imitated in various parts of this colony with invariably great success. The inhabitants of the Marsh are also pretty generally aware that Penny Rean(ings at our Mechanics' Institute were much talked of, and a Com mittee to initiate themn appointed ; but, un fortunately, it is not known to any one what has become of that Committee-or, rather, of its deliberations on the matter. Consequently, I address this communication to you in the hope of both eliciting a reply to the query " Are we to have Penny Readings at Bacchus Marsh ?"-and also furthering the accomplish ment of such an entertainment by attracting attention to the matter. An entertainment of the kind spoken of is essentially suited to a district like ours, where we have no public entertainers or places of amusement, as in such towns as Melbourne or Ballarat...

No Title [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 20 October 1866

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1866. UNE object which the Royal Commission on Education should seek to accomplish, is to elevate the status of the school.master, The efficiency and success of any system of educe. tion will mainly depend on the ability of those on whom devolves the drudgery, so to speak, of the school-room. Whether our schools be national or denominational, it is evident that our children can be properly prepared for entering upon the duties of citizenship only by an educated and respectable body of school. masters, In these days of modern refine, ment we should perhaps use the word teacher; but in this matter we have a leaning to con, servatism, and prefer the rather antiquated word, as being more in harmony with our early associations, and because it reminds vu of the worthy old gentleman who "Reared our tender thought, And taught our young idea how to shoot;" And though many years have passed sin he was withdrawn from his " noisy man, sion," yet we still cherish the most p...

THE. CHLURICH A2ND SCHI001 AT'r MELTON. To the Editor of the E?-press, Sin-Asnarticle appeared in the West Bourko Guardian of 6th inst., purporting to be a report of a meeting held in Melton on the evening of the 28th ult., called by the Combined Church Committee, to report what they had done as to the purchase of the freehold of the Church and Common School, to which report I desire to call your atten tion, in order to correct the imperfect and incorrect statements it contains. The party furnishing this report proceeds to narrate the circumstances of the case, and, among other things, states-" That the lRev. James Lambie, Presbyterian iMinister, had purchased from the assigns of Thomas Cridge (insolvent), the reversion of the lease, and also an adjoining allotment, for the sum of £30, and that he had claimed for church land the sum named in the lease £50-thus representing Mr. Lambio as making.a.profit of £20.
