'A ?udge was reprimanding an attorney for bringing several small suits into court' and remarked that it would have been,much better for all parties had he persuaded his clientl to leave their causes to the arbi. tration of two or. three honest men.' ,1Please your honour," retorted the lawyer, " we did not choose to trouble honest men with them."

A Woaw. DRow\-ED IR TiHE SALTWATER RIv?a. -On Thursday last, an inqpest was held before Dr. Wilkins, at the Stanley Arms, Footscray, on the body of a German woman, .which was found in the water at the junction of the Saltwater River and the Yarra. From the evidence adduced it appeared that deceased had been living with her husband at Foots cray, and that she went to bed as usual on the night of the 19th ult., and was discovered to be missing about two o'clock on the following morning. No other reason could be assigned as to the cause of the melancholy event than that the deceased for some time previoushad been exceedingly depressed in mind.

A SKETCH ON THE JET£Y. Behold'yon feeble, wasted, drooping form, Whose tattered garments wanton in the wind; The prey of summer's heat and winter's storm, In no "sweet home" can he a shelter find: Yet he was once the social circles charm, ihis witching manners-his transcendant mind, And wealth immense, attractions bore for all 'Till dissipation wrought his dark downfall. 0 where are all his "fond companions" fled, Who nightly revelled round his sumptuous board Now while he languishes for lack of bread, No greatful hand assistance doth afford, When winter's fury rages round his head, That head with learning, wit, and knowledge stored, He pines, neglected, scorned, and forgot, His former minions seem to know him not. Poor hapless author of thy own dark fate, Thy transient pleasures thou hast purchased dear; Yet, while new woes and dangers thee await, Thou rushest reckless on thy mad career : Wouldst thou thy wild course change ere it's too late, Home, friends, and wealth thy future da...

"TOM STYLES." "The right man in the right place." [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 13 June 1857

"TOM STYLES." " 2Th right man in the right place." You may have seen Tom, perhaps not. WVell I will tell you about him. Tom Styles was the only son of a respectable broken-down old gentleman in the north of England. The governor lived in retirement at an old tumble-down house in the country which had once been the manor of a very considerable estate. But the family had been going backward for two hun dred years, and there seemed to be a special curse at taching to it, as it has been remarked that during the course of generations, for one prudent and managing proprietor there had been two who were ignorant alike of prudence and management and who succeeded by one way or another to leave matters more or less worse than they found them. Tom's father unfortunately'was one of the better sort, or possibly Tom might have been one of the better sort himself. But this was not to be. Tile governor lost his wife when she presented him with a son, and the child was very dear to the heart of the...

THE WORKIxG MEN'S EDUCATIONAL SOCIETY. Under this appellation a society has been established in North Williamstown, for the avowed purpose of benefiting and improving the moral and social con dition of the working men of that neighbourhood; andwe are givento understand that the efforts which have been put forth in its behalf have been attended with great success. A library in connection with the society has been recently formed, and a reading room, which is well attended, is now open every eve ing to the subscribers. Things are therefore begin ning to look up ;--the promoters of the scheme are satisfied with the results of their labours; their pro spects are bright and clear, and we congratilate them accordingly.
