Original and Select Poetry. TRANSLATION OF MELEAGER'S EPITAPH ON (HIS DAUGHTER OR WIFE) HELIODORA. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 30 April 1835

TRANSLATION OF MELEAGER'S EPITAPH ON (HIS DAUGHTER OR WIFE) HELIODORA. BY HENRY HALLORAN. Oh, buried Heliodora ? o'er thy head, My tears I pour, my tears of yearning love; O'er thy lamented tomb sad tears I shed, Tears, which my grief and deep affection prove. I wretched, wretched Meleager, mourn, Mourn thee, beloved one, soon, too soon departed: Unprized by Acheron, and harshly torn     From me, alas, alas! half broken-hearted. Where is my flower? By death and dust defiled, Oh! thou supporting mother, I implore, My much beloved one, like an orphan child, Earth! to thy gentle bosom, clasp for evermore.

We shall insert it ne't week by all means. Aggrieved's note will be inserted in our next. We have not had time to read a Wellwisher's letter yet, but the course we think it advisable to pursue, inrefe rence to its object, is to say nothing of it whatever.

The establishment of so economical and safe a coiveyance will'doubtless gireatly enhance the value of all descriptions of property on the banks' of' the Hunter; while by lowering the rates of freight to Sydney, it .will obviate the ne cessity for vessels bound with colonial produce for London, to take in their cargoes at Newcastle, as has been done in.' several instances, 'and w...

iLtterature aLtb *ctife*. PERSONAL HISTORY :OF , LOUIS PHILIPPE. [FROM THE QUARTERLY REVIEW._ TimE Journal begins with the entrance of the. young Duke de Chartres (the present King Louis 'Philippe) into the Jacobin club, an event of con siderable importance in a public,view, as mark ing his.fa'her's adhesion to the principles'of that society, and which was also the occasion of seri ous family dissensions. The Jacobins, we find, were so much pleased at seeing the Duke de 'Chartres amongst them, that they preserited 'hini •a formal address, of which the first sentence: is' curious.: ,Sir, we congratulate ourselves! should• we not also congratulate you ? "you have been our prince; you are now our colleague, &c. "But' that which was a matter' of cboiigratla tion to the Jacobins'was a. source "'of deep afflic-1 tion to his amiable and excellent mother,, and became the immediate cause of an open rupture between her and Madame de' Genlis, by whose counsels that princess believed th...
