Gems from Poets. THE WIND AND THE SEA. [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 26 January 1861

THE WIND AND THE SEA. The Sea is a jovial comrade, 'He laughs wherever lhe, goes; 'His merriment shines in the dipling lines That wrinkle his hoale repose; -He lays.down at the feet of the sun, lAnd shakes all over with glee,. And the broad-backed billows fall faint on the shore, In the mirth of the mighty Sea. iBut the wind is sad and restless, And cursed with an inward pain; You inay hark as you will, by valley or hill, But you hear him still complain. Slie wails on the barren mountains, And shrieks on the wintry sea; lie solbs in the cedar and moans in the pine, And shudders all over the aspen tree. Welcome are both their voices, And I know not which is best The laughter that slips from the Ocean's lips, Or the coinfortless wind's unrest. There's a pang in all rejoicing, A'joy in the heart of pain, And the Wind that saddcns, the Sea that gladdens, Are singing the self-same strain.

Parliamentary. MONDAY, JANUARY 14, [Newspaper Article] — Queanbeyan Age and General Advertiser — 26 January 1861

-o MONDAY, JA.uAaR 14, The Legislative Council met at seventeen minutes past four o'clock. The debate was then resumed on the reply to his Excellency's Address. After several important amendments, the reply in detail was agreed to, Mr. Hargrave and Mr. Russell the mover of the address, having stated that they declined having any more to do with it. The PIRESIDENT had thought throughout the debates that parts about the first amend ment were disrespectful to his Excellency. H-Ie now took the first opportunity he had hand of objecting to it. It certainly read or passed a censure on the Governor and was certainly disrespectful to his Excellency. Having said that much, he was prepared as their President to take up the Address, and to accept any po sition they placed him in as President, consis tently with his honour. DMr. DEAS TnOMrsoN, in. bringing forward the amendment, took the whole blame upon himself, but he had no desire of casting a cen sure on the' Governor-he wished simply to ma...

Of the present State of Europe, and of what this latter .could.be in the interest of the Governments and People.
