Woman's Love: A Dialogue. THE LOVED. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870
Woman's Love : A Dialogue. THE LOVED. It hath been told, in heat and cold, That woman's heart is so She doth not rest on what is best, Bo't either high or low. But she will take, for love's dear sake, To sorrow, shume, and we. And yot withal, it doe* b of all As some poor sinners Were't not for this appincs Wore but a thing .,-. 0nc ; For it is true, and noclüng new, She loves for love a on . TIIJÎ UNLOVED This I gainsay, as well I may : Her love is sill caprice, It shines and plays with fitful rays, Disturbing mortal peace ; It burneth hot when it should not, Begins whore it should cease ; When fondly caught proves cold and naught, From troth demands release ; When free it sighs foi- bonds and tics : Makes broken hearts its throne : For it is true, and nothing now, She loves herself alone. THE LOVED. It follows not from this, I wot, That all you'say?is sooth, Boing sorely crossed, thy wits are tossed, Where passion drowns the truth. Tn woman's slight, by reason's light See heaven's...

Pearl Fishing in Western Australia. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 29 January 1870
f «... PearrPishing in Western Australia. As Mr. Clifton has caused.my nome to be mentioned in connection with kt curios " from Nicol Bay, and thereabouts, I think on apology or explanation is duo for not having done more in the way of ooUeoting. I send a few little things through Mr. Chiton, wishing they had boen better worth offering you. - Being on tho N. W. coast soon after the discovery of the mother o' pearl shells, and although yet unused to the sea, I staited with a friend of mine in a boat of about six tons burdon in search of the " great pearl oyster bed, supposed to exist somewhere along the coast from which the scattered shells picked up must have been washed," and after working oight months ui> and down the coast for about 300 miles, I have come to tho conclusion that they never do exist in beds as tho " native oyster " does, but only in pairs, although this is probably better known to you than to me. The method wo have of proouring these shells may perhaps be intere...
