AND SWAS HILt. GazErr:. I ^^^ Ylc------------- *;:fLI-tt".D WSEKLY. 1,EItANG, J.ANUARY 18, 167S. THE CIVIL SERVICE. W rE, the intelligence first spread throughout the land that great reduc tions had been made in the Civil Ser vice, the feeling that first evinced itself was that of sympathy for the discharged men, and a reproach against the Government for being harsh in dis missing them summarily. Now that the public have had time to look at the matter calmly and dispassionately: and to view the state of affairs with all their surroundings the opinion now gaining ground is that the Government are justified in their action. Reform of the Civil Service has been urgently re quired for some years past; and has been a plank in the political platform of almost every Ministry. Like a huge cancer that saps the vitals of the human bodly, the Civil Service has been grow ing in size, till at last it has assumed such for:nitable proportions that to curtail it seemed to be beyond the power of our...

SELECT POETRY. HOME. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 18 January 1878

SELECT POETRY. No earthly honors can compare Nor brightest gems,though rich and rare; Nor all we'll find, though farwc roam, With those sweet joys that garnish home. We pass through life's competition, And witness many a deviation: But far and near, from tower to dome, No place we find so dearas home. Yes, home-the toil-worn, weary ones, Earth'slaborers, but her noblest sons, Hlere rest and hold communion sweet With loved ones in this blest retreat. Here virtue hath her dwelling place, Arid honourlends her kingly grace ; And love doth banish slavish fear A-llthese combine to make home dear. So varied are its joysindeed, Exempt from every selfish greed, That none need lonely feel, or sad. For all things tend to make us glad. Then let us guard with jealous care Our home, and keep it bright and fair; And only yield it with our breath, When we are conquered by grirmdeath. Then may we hope, transposed by love, To enter that bright throno above A home where we slall ecer sing Eternal anth...

I was pleased in more ways than one. 'If it be the inea s of raising a little money to enable the committee to make their church self-supporting materially, it will be something. At present, with its prop on either side, it looks just the reverse. It reminds one of a cripple with a pair of crutches, trying-not to walk, but to stand. Perhaps I may be prrmnitted to express a hope that the condition of the spiritual church is not synonymous with the material one. I sho id be very sorry indeed -to know that the Wesleyans of Kerang were in such a sorry plignt. Let us hope that their long period of inactivity is over. and that the coming "tea-fight" may be an important era in the his...
