LANG TAM TAMSON. DY THE AUTIIOR OF "N?ATruPEW IORRISON?.' (PROu THE "LEISUCEII OU'") "But, then, Mrs. Morrison, mom, there's Jamsie Stewart, the hind at the Netherleas', wife. She was as trig and well-speaking a lass before Jamsie married her as you could see anywhere. They say now that she had aye a bad temper, but that her friends kept it quiet. Well, Jamsie, poor fellow, married her. And now what is she? a dirty, draggle-tailed, long-tongued hizzy, aye wasting her time in her neighbours' houses, and neglecting her man and bairn. And now Jamsie's growing dour and ill-tempered himself; and the folk about them hear them constantly quarrelling. He was as steady a lad when he married her as a man could be, but now I'm aye expect. ing to hear that he's taken to. frequent the public-house, for it must be a strong temptation, the public, to a man who has nothing better than a dirty house, a crying wean, and a flyting wife to come home to."

CORRESPONDENCE. We do not nocossarily ondiuro the opinions of our correspondents. TO THE EDITOR OF T'IIE MEROURT. Sir-Seeing that yo',r journal is oircu l]aing in this neighbourhood, I venture to ask you for space for a few remarks on the way in which public money is voted away at the meetings of the Heidelberg Shire Council. The manner of conducting the financial business is this--The secretary says, "'Tho next business is the claims for payments," and he thoen produces a number of documents, supposed to be accounts rendered. Those documents are then handed round, from one Coundillor to another-there is a good deal of nodding and nudging and whispering, a little smiling, and then the documents are put aside. The ohoque-book is brought for ward, and a number of chequos are signed by the Prosldenut and one or two othler memlbors of the Council. T'Ih whole thing is dumb show to any ratupayors or repro. sentativis of the press who may happen to be present. It is true that now and thon,...

APRIL. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 10 July 1875

APRIL. GREEN buds and snowy orchard blooms appear; The Spring is near; But my heart keeps its winter all the year. The soent of hidlen violets comes and goes; The sweet primrose And daffodil that hangs its head, unclose; Now in dim woodland dolls may these be found, Lighting the ground With pallid beauty everywhere around. The trees their vernal garb once'more assume ; The yellow broom By lone waysides is breaking into bloom; The lilac is in bud; larks soarand sing; Next month will bring The swallow, without whom 'tis scarcely Spring. To lifo and song once more the woods awake; The birds forsake Their winter haunts, and build in bush and brake. Ah, happy birds t that know no wild regret That love, and yet That having loved, are able to forget I ELISE COOPIEB. Life is divided into three terms-that which was, which is, which will be. Let us learn from the past to profit. by the present, and from the present to live for the fnture. Men are more intensely selfish than women. There are i...

POETRY. THIS BABY OF OURS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 10 July 1875

POETRY. THIS BABY OF OURS, Txars's not a blossom of beautiful May, Silver of daisy or daffodil gay, Nor the rosy bloom of apple-tree flowers, Fair as the face of this baby of ours. You could never find on a bright June day A bit of fair sky so cheery and gay, Nor the haze on the hills, in noonday hours, Blue as the eyes of this baby of ours, There's not a murmur of wakening bird, The clearest, sweetest, that ever was heard In the tender hush of the dawn's stilt hours, Soft.as the laugh of this baby of ours. There's no gossamer silks of tasselled corn, No flimsiest thread of the shy wood-fern, Not even the cobweb spread over the flowers Fine as the hair of this baby of ours. There's no fairy shell by.the sounding sea, No wild rose that nods on the windy lea, No blush of the sun through April's soft showers Pink as I he palms of this baby of ours. May the dear Lord spare her to us, we pray. For many along and sunshiny day, Ero he takes to bloom in Paradise bowers' 'Chis wee bit darlin...

HEIDELBERG, MoNDAY, JULY 12TH. Before Mr. Strutt, P.M., and Mr. Mapleston. William Perry, of Fulham Grange, was complained against for allowing a number of cows to wander on the public road at Alphington. The bench dismissed the complaint, on the ground that the evidence was not quite conclusive as to the owner ship of the cows. Mrs. Mary. Cockrell applied for a warrant to. get John Alexander, alias "Jack, the mason," from a house in Cape street, Heidelberg. The evidence went to show that Alexander would neither pay roent nor yet "clear out " when requested to do so. The warrant was granted. An elderly woman, who appeared to have seen better days, and who gave her name as Anne Benson, made application to the bench to have her husband bound over to keep the peace. The police-magistrate told the woman to lay an information in the usual form. She then deposed that her hu- band had presented a gun at her, and had repeatedly threatened to take her life, and that she was in dread that he ...
