THE BATTLE OF NELSON PARADE. [Newspaper Article] — Williamstown Chronicle — 5 September 1857

THE BATTLE OF NELSON PARADE. "Permit me, Mr. Editor," As prosy writers say, "Through the medium of yonr journal," My genius to display: Although my democratic muse Is of an humble'gride; Quite Homer-like. Ill sing the fight, Was fought in Nelson-parade. Two pulverizing hammermen, Regardless of their bones, Resolved to thrash each other well, Instead of smashing stones. But though the fight caged fierce and long ; Some contests have been louder, For human art could not explode .'Adam's pavement powder. Entrenched behind his stony heap, . Each took a strong position, As "hbcgýgýa bullets" were not scarce, The stones flew fast as musket balls, But from their marks went wide; Demolishing two apple stalls, Six captains' hats beside. Dread, terror, and alarm spread To every passer-by ; One cries out, captain; mind your head, And captain, mind your eye. It would appear that Williamstown, - Of common folk was drained: Aisd.that our "fishing villnen" nought But captains then containe. - The ...

CH R:ON-I CL E. ,VILLIAMSTOTWN, Situday, Septebein r 5th. R:.A. RAILWAY'Pr OCRASTINATION. . IT seems not impiobable; iotoivitlistanding the expectation that has. been raised . esphcting the early commencemnent of raiiivays, but the subject may yet .be deferred iutil. the next session of the Legislature. When we read the purposeless 'discussions which still pro crastinate these importantm works, and when we remember how promising was'the prospect at the early part of.the session, we can hardly avoid thinking that, from some-cause or other, certain members of the Assembly regard rail-' ways as. painful .,neccssitiel' to be avoided as long as possible, ratheir than as undertakings for promoting the settlemen and developing the resources 'of the country. _ A warning voice of opposition was raised on the. liustijgs at the general election before the assembling of the:.
