INCIDENTS OF THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 19 May 1855

INCIDENTS OF THE WAR. (From the United Scrvicc Gazette. CAN THIS BK TIIUK ?-The prepara tions and comforts for the sick in their passage home in a certain ship were wretched. Salt pork and rum, without any sort of convenience, and the ship rolling on her beam ends in her long pas sage of 25 days, from Constantinople to Malta, was not very cheering to .the poor fellows. The meat, such its it was, was brought to the sick in their hands ; no plates, knives, forks, or spoons, and the sick men had to eat it like dogs. From illness the men could not make use of the rum or cocoa. Porter and limejuiee were substituted for the former, but only for a few days when the stock was out, and tea was substituted for cocoa; but, as one allowance was divided to make two meals, and hot water not abundant, it was more like dirty water than tea ; and to crown all, there was only one water-closet for all hands, 200 men, women, and children. There was generally a crowd of 20 to 30 waiting their turn, outs...

POLICY OF THE NEW CZAR. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 19 May 1855

PfVl/tCY OF TIIB NiiW CZAK. (From the Daily News.) Boundless as was the ambition of the late Emperor, and relentless as was his will, he was less formidable as an indi vidual, than as a part of the Muscovite system of government. Though lie has gone to -his acconnt, the spirits of Peter the Great and Catherine II. continue to animate the cabinet of St. Petersburgh. The Muscovite party-headed by Men schikoff, Siniavin, and the Patriarch of Moscow-which overpowered the remon strances of Nesselrode, and goaded on the Czar himself to his aggression on Turkey, survives with undiminished strength and unaltered principles. The death of the sovereign cannot but give a momentary pause to the' operations of the Russian government. The Musco vite and German parties may possibly try their strength in a preliminary struggle to decide who is to be emperor. Constan tine, the second son, is the favorite of the former; Alexander the eldest, of the latter. From what is known of the feel ings and wish...

Poetry. ORIGINAL AND SELECTED. THE GRAND ASSIZE BALL. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 19 May 1855

ORIGINAL AND SELECTED. THE GRAnLTaSSIZE BALL. When a man takes to rhyming he cannot but choose To solicit the aid of some good-natured muse; So casting about me, in order to find Which, of all the nine sisters, would prove the most kind, I've selected Terpsichore, gayest of all. As a subject I've chosen the Grand Assize Ball. When the day had arrived, how impatient each lass; How anxious each question addressed to the glass; While some said the clock had most surely run down, Or that stupid old Time had deserted the town : But the steady ' old coon ' was f all there' after all For he ushered in night for the Grand, Assize Ball. When the ladies assembled, how cheerful each face, Every heart light as air, every form full of grace: Here an angel just fresh from the regions above There a Psi/ehe whose smile bore the im press of love; ! While the Nobs and the Townsmen, and I Diggers and ail I Helped to swell the gay throng at the I Grand Assize Ball. ! Exists there a being whose ill orde...

ORIGINAL AND SELECTED. THE SORT OF MAN THE LADIES LIKE. Which may be howled to the lane of e Darby Kelly* The sort of man the ladies like: If fair or dark; hair black or brown ; Where, chiefly, do his virtues strike ? His beard, is't grizzled, or but down Herculean form and giant height? Or is he, pray, a shorter man ? Great, p'rhaps, in strength, or small of might In fine, what is the sort of man ? The sort of man, the sort of man, Who always please the ladies can, Pray tell me now the sort of man, I want to be a ladies' man. His eyebrows pencilled, eyes dark blue ? His voice so soft and winning, oh ? His manners quite genteel, yet true, With just a shade of sinning, oh ? Is this the man to cut one out, Or rob you of your daughter, man ? Or is he ugly, short, and stout ? In short, what is the sort of man ? The sort of man, &c. His forehead, is it high or low ? His shoulders broad or narrow, oh ? His legs small, shapeless, and so so, Or straight as any arrow, oh ? A coward, ...

"Quirks, Quips, Cranks, and Merry Gibes." EULOGY ON PUNNING.-A gentleman observed one day to Mr. Henry Erskine, who was a great punster, that punning is the lowest sort of wit.
