The cannon of the In valides would not have driven him away, He was inflexible as marble, pale as death, and deaf as a carpet. ' I will speak!

THE MYSTERIOUS BEQUEST. AN ORIGINAL TALE. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 10 April 1841

THE MYSTERIOUS BEQUEST. AN ORIGINAL TALE, .The Castello Novo, on the left bank of the Douro, was, at the beginning of the year 1833,.a scene of extreme milli tAry disorder, from the incongruous Sniixtdre which made up the small army' of Dom Pedro. The bravest offic'rs were associated with the filthiest rubble, and even the native Portuguese gained by comnparison with the scarecrow mel cenaries of England. The description of Sir John Falstaff's band will give the best idea of the motley horde :-c" You would think that I had an hundred and fifty tattered prodigals lately come from zwine-keeping, from eating drafT and .husks. A mad fellow met me on the way, and told me t had unloaded all the gibbets, and pressed the dead bodies. , No eye hath seent such scare crows.

DRAUGHT HORSES. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 10 April 1841

DRAUGHT HORSEB. [FROM TL?E LAUNCESTONI ADVERTISER.] AN erroneous idea has long prevailed concerning draught or cart horses, that, provided they are large and heavy, all further considerationts are needless. On the contrdry, it is both theoretically and practically' true, that great powers for draught must depend materially upon just proportions; and that four thorough shaped horses will draw with facility a weight which would puzzle fire or dinary ones, although of equal or even superior.size, a truth:which every per. son ought to reflect upon, who has a considerable number of those, animals to'maintain. A'cart horse should not be more than sixteen hands high, with .a risk spark ling eye, a'well-shaped head, and short pricked ears, full' chest and shoulder, but somewhat forelow ; that is to say, having hi9 hind rather higher than his fore quariter : sufficient-general length, -but by no means'leggy-large:aod swel. linui fillets, and flat hones-he should stand wide on all fours, but ...

T're transaction over, a few small tit bits were thrown to the dog, but to the surprise of all, he declined acceptance. On returning home he laid a sixpense at the feet of his mistress. It appeared that in paying the account the lady had dropped a sixpence, which the poodle picked up, and he was too faithful to his trust to open his month for scraps, and thereby run the risk of losing his. mistress' money. - Paisley Advertiser, Ttr. lRULING PAssrow.e- A story is told of a merchant staying at an inn, wnom the boots by mistake called at an unusually early hoar.
