[ Theodore Bartley, Esq., was called to the chair, who briefly addressed the audience, and Expressed the reluctance with which he con sented to officiate as chairman from a conspious iness of his inability.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE LAUNCESTON COURIER.

Now it behoves us all in the first place to recollect, that it will be Dr. Turnbull's direct interest (as no doubt he will consider it his duty,) to use his utmost energies, in seconding the Government, in this most obnoxious tax, it will be, we may fully expect, the child of his bosom, like the late Attorney- General's Road Act. his morning and evening thought, and however conflicting it may be with sundry Go...

POSTB.Y, 'SOFT BE THY SLUftBEES. ' Soft be thy slumbers, gentle child 1 May angels keep tbcir watch o'er thee ; Sleep on, in innocence and bliss, Unconscious of thy destiny. As day by day 1 gaze on thee New transports do my bosom move, For all the joys my heart hath known Are nothing to a mother's love. Thy fairy form is ever near — In dreams I sec thee by my side; And in the future, fancy thee Thy Mother's hope, thy Father's pride. Sleep on, my child 1 may bounteous heaven Still watch o'er thee with fostering care; O may the Sov'reign Lord of Kings Give ear unto a mother's prayer. May he shed light upon thy path, And strew thy early way with flowers j Thy faithful guide in infancy, Thy steadfast hope in childhood's hours. Then shalt thou know, my darling child, How sweet it is their love to share, Whose fervent hearts have joined with mine, And breaihed with me the Mother's prayer.
