Correspondence. A LETTER OF SYMPATHY. TO THE EDITOR. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 16 December 1887

Correspondence A LETTER OF SYMPATHY. TO THE EDITOR. SIR,-I notice that the Petersburg paper is heavy of heart, and in its dis tress it wails forth the plaint that al though no provincial journal more fully reports local matters than it does none receives less courteous treatment from residents. But indeed, my dear sir, you are no worse off than any of your brethren. It is written ".411 think their own geese swans," and it might be stated with equal truth that each man considers his own burden heaviest. All over the colony folk have an idea that if they order half-a crown's worth of printing-although they get full value at the time-they are entitled to a paragraph before the coming event and half-a-column after. Some indeed fancy that these good results may be achieved by the dispatch of a complimentary ticket which perhaps j - to save the cost of new-has been altered from the year before. I have, in my capacity as " nocturnal stipen i diary scrivener," received an offer of money to ...

Original Poetry. THE CASTAWAY. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 16 December 1887

Original Poetry. THE CASTAWAY. [BR BRASH.] An old shattered barque lays tossed on the j waves, A harrowing sight, as the water laves The torn, eparlesa hulk. Like a famishing beast When gnawing a bone, or bent on a feast, With long, sharpened fangs, and foul curling lips The planks from her sides the cruel wave strips, And tears o'er the prey, and again recede As the white spume drops o'er the ghastly feed Afractur'd mass, with decks torn asunder, Amid lightnings flash, and pealing thunder. On the ocean she lays, a fearful wrecks A waif on the foam, a storm batered speck. Scarce a plank remains of the thing of life, That mocked the elements and scorned the strife. The gay ship's vanished that once flew the gale In old ocean's records, an oft told tale. How great is her fall! How hard is her fate, As the green walls strike, in her Crippled state, It rends, disembers, and a thousand floats Are hurled o'er the sea, like a fleet of boats. All's hushed for a time, as though the fierce wi...

District News. Burra. December 21. [Newspaper Article] — Petersburg Times — 23 December 1887

District News. Xturra* December 21. " Christmas comes but o nee ii year, and when it comes it brings good cheer," So says the old proverb, and I think there is a little in it, from the fact that the season brings together sons, daughters, fathers and mothers, who have in the scramble for bread been away in different parts of the country- But the very sou fid of Christmas awakes them to the hope of again meeting around the same table, and the present time proves the coinci dence, for there are many men both young and old in Burnt for the holidays who have been some in one place, some in another, hence I take it that in many families there will be the good cheer I above refer too. The third meeting of our town council for the present tei m took place on Monday last when the principal business was the appointment of officers. The Town Clerk was re-appuiuted at £65 per year, the Inspector at £30, whilst one day-man was d^charged, tlie other one, J. Jenkin, having to accom plish the duti...
