THE BRIDGE AT HINDMARSH. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 9 August 1852
THE BRIDGE AT HINDMARSH. THE other day, tempted by a gleam of sun- shine, we strolled into the country in the direction of Hindmarsh. True to our allegiance to the sovereign people, we always make our recreation subserve their interests, and of course we strove to do so on this occasion. On approaching the bridge across the Torrens, our attention was forcibly arrested by the obviously dangerous condition of the opposite or northern bank of the river j and we at once determined to examine the stream and its banks, as well as the bridge, with home degree of care, and if necessary to bring the matter prominently before public notice. The Hindmarsh-bridge forms now the only means by which carriages and horses can cross the Torrens while it is swollen by floods, and were it swept away or seriously injured, our communication with the Port would be entirely cut off. Of how much detriment this would be to the city, the country, and the Port we need cot speak. We will only say that there is ...

EDITORIAL OPINIONS. VERY COMPLAISANT. i The adventures cf a Ministry in search of t a policy are likely to prove more entertain- ing in the retrospect than profitable for the present moment. Never was there a gene- ral election so fraught with weighty con- sequences as the one now impending. The : constituencies are not merely charged with the duty of approving or rejecting certain j principles, but of deciding what are to be the political professions of a large party in the State during the rest of their public career. Whatever the country thinks, the Ministry are ready to carry out. The Ex- ecutive are no longer to be responsible for their opinions, but to take them ready ' made from the electors Thc electors are to decide what opinions the Ministry are to bold, and the Ministry are prepared to hold them accordingly. No plan can be more agreeable to the present holders of office, it is a complete division of labour. The Prime Minister is to decide on men, and the country on mea- s...

ORIGINAL POETRY. NAPOLEON REDIVIVUS. [Newspaper Article] — Adelaide Morning Chronicle — 9 August 1852
ORIGINAL POETRY. NAPOLEON REDIVIVUS. "When freedom groaned beneath the yoke Of proud Imperial Gaul, The bonded might of Europe woke. Responsive to ber cai!; An-t fired with indignation just, Swept the dark despot to the dust, From sceptre, power, and throne ; And baffled glory found a grave, \\ here booms the far Atlantic ware, Arouud Helena lone. There wasting war his banner furled. To shroud the form of pride, That bore it dripping o'er the world. While men by nations died ; Till peace «rose with placid beam, And earth, untroubled as a dream, Lay slumbering in her smile : And visions fair, of man subdued To universal brotherhood, Klent with her hopes the while. Bot France still wailed her fallen star, Though writhing from his rod. And wept ber pomp of prosperous war, That gjonfied her god ; Until his distant dungeon tomb Gave back from cold sepulchral loom, The idol of her trust, And regal splendour lent its »id. With priestly pageant and parade. To deify his dust. His spirit, sum...
