ORIGINAL POETRY. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 25 January 1830

ORIGINAL POETRY. (HnuLaiS.) A heart wu lost the other day As I've heard people say, And picked up by a Gentleman Who chaoced to pass that way. This little heart was stadde'd o'er, And richly cased chough, With Honor. Virtue, Love and Truth, And such old fashioned stuff. If offered to be pawned or sold, Fray stop it if you can. Indeed it is no use at all, To any other man. But if this heart 's returned again, Or one as good in lieu, Tbe latter will be held quite safe, The former one quite true. Then do not offer it formate, ': Bat stop it if you can, You'll find it of no use at all To any other man.

On Tuesday last, one of Bevan's gang, quite a youth (who had absconded from the service of Mr. Brumby, and as we understand, assisted to rob Mr. A. Thomson, as recorded a few days back in our paper) was picked up. He had been playing with a double barrelled percussion gun, (supposed to have been stolen from Mr. Dutton) which went off, and shot his hand to pieces— it hung to his arm by a very small cartilage. He was brought to Norfolk Plains Police Office, and bis arm amputa ted by Dr. Paton. Report says, that some of Mr. Thomson's cloaths were found upon him, and also that he expressed a wish to kill all the peo- ple in Mr. T.'s house when Bevan and his party robbed it. One of the men and the horse belonging to Mr. Thomson, which were taken away by Bevan and bis party, came back a few days ago. This man told a lamentable story about being lost in the bush for three days, but his appearance our In- formant says, gave the lie to his words ; the other servant has joined Bevan and Britt...

To His Excellency, Lieutenant Gov ernor Arthur. Upon your arrival here, you found us a happy, a very contented people, although, even before your arrival, it had been always the mistaken policy of all former Govern ors, even that immaculate man (the idol of the Colonial Times) Colonel Sorell; but up to your assuming the command no land belonging by right* to the township, bad been given foolishly, nor lavishly granted to any person?, however high in favour.

THE SOLDIER. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 1 February 1830

THE SOLDIER.   His path is o'er the roaring deep,   And through the burning plain ;   And he must vigil, lonely, keep, While mem'ry racks the brain. Far from the scenes his boyhood loved;   From love, and all its joys; From his home, till hence removed, The death-sleep close his eyes ! His path is through the forest wide,   And up the mountain steep ;   And he, in damning manhood's pride,   A gory field must reap.   And seek renown in deeds of woe,   Of havock, and of blood;   And he must to the battle go,   And die. — for England's good !   His path is to the city gaunt   of pestilence, and death ;   And he must quit the greenwood haunt   To meet the siroc's breath ;   To drink the poison of the gale   With fever, madness, fraught,—   And shiver like a...
