THE HORSEMAN WHO FACED THE STORM. "A tale—owre true."—BRIDE OF LAMMERMUIR. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 16 December 1848
THE HORSEMAN WHO FACED THE STORM. "A tale--owre true."--BRIDE OF LAMMERMUIR. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; He left his home, and he rode away &nbsp; Towards Goulburn's well-known plain; He purposed making no lengthened stay, But, sad to tell, from that hapless day, He saw not his home again. Australia's winter-month, bleak July, &nbsp; Its freezing sway had resumed, &nbsp; And snow-clouds, quitting their course on high, Sailed sullenly down to the nether sky, Where lowering and dense they loomed. The horseman reached the appointed place, And made but a short abode, &nbsp; &nbsp; For mindful he seemed, that the day's brief space Would yield him but little of light to retrace His rugged and lonely road. Remounted, he shook his bridle rein, And, urging for home his steed, &nbsp; Soon far in his rear he left town and plain, &nbsp; &nbsp; Nor slackened his pace, but prest forward amain, The distance demanding ...
VERSES. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 23 December 1848
VERSES. Wilt thou seek then with me, love, some far * mountain home, ., Where, nor sorrow can dim thee, nor falsehood can come ? AnA I'll furnish thee love, with a most solemn plea, To leave father and mother, to wander with me. II, I see now, thy soft maiden blushet proclaim Thy horror, thy dread, at the shadow of shame; 1But our holy religion shall own in broad day, Thou didst wisely and well, love-not saying me, nay. 11iI. Then trust me and fly, and throw care to the wind, Than diamonds or gold, thou'rt more dear to my mind ; Anuil perish my name 'mongst the good, bro-' and-free, ..aIro to S"When false or unkind my soul-' thee.

[ADVERTISEMENT].-A CURE FOR ALL KINDS or SWELLINGS AND TuMouRs DY HOLLOWAY'S OINTMENT AND PILLS.-Mr. John Young, of Worcester street, Kidderminster, had been af flicted for nine years with a tumour or swelling on his leg, which at times prevented him from attending to his business. He had used every thing that could be thought of, but only got worse instead of better. In two months, he was perfectly cured by Holloway's Pills and Oint. ment. Messrs. Pennell and Mark, the very re spectable booksellers, Kidderminster, will vouch for the correctness of this statement. Glandular swellings, unnatural enlargements, contracted or stiff joints, might speedily be cured by these celebrated medicines. TERMS.--Eight Shillings and Sixpence pe quarter-if paid in advance, Seven Shillings and Sixpence per quarter. No verbal communication can be atteihdd to and all letters must be post-paid, or they wil not be taken in. ~-' No receipt is genuine except on yellow pa per and signed by the proprietor,' ...
UNIFORM POSTAGE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 23 December 1848
UNIFORM POSTAGE. WE believe that the Local Government has decided on establishing an uniform rate of postage chargeable on letters throughout the colony. The sum fixed upon;is four-pence. Some such reduction might have sa tisfied the colony some years back, but like all other delayed concessions on the part of Government, we are confident that such a measure will be scouted, as one far short of the requirement of the Colohists. The four-penny system was tried. in England previous to the adoption of Rowland Hill's plan, and was found grievously wanting in as much as the benefit derived by the community was `orly partial. Such. a plan would be :found to act precisely the same way in ?this c6lony. By its adoption, those who are living withlin the present limits of t'hrfpur-penny post will derive no bener fit'from the measure whatever. VNothing short of a reduction to the amount of one-half of the lowest amount of postage at present exacted will satisfy the community, and we trust, that...

SOMETHING LIKE A HOLIDAY.-Pastrycook What have you had sir? Boy-I've had two jellies, seven of them, eleven of them, and six of those, and four bath buns, a sausage roll, ten almond-cakes-and a bottle of ginger beer. The members of the bar in this city (New York), may be divided into three classes:--st. Good lawyers, who are gentlemen. 2ndly. Good law. yers, who are not gentlemen. 3rdly. Pettifog. gers, who are neither lawyers nor gentlemen. Why is a hackney coachman like a i gious man?-because he has an inward check upon his outward actions. Which is the laziest class of persons? Tall people.-Why ? Because they are always longer in bed than others. A young lady being asked by a boring theolo. gician which party in the church she was most in favour of, she replied that she preferred a wedding party.

COURT OF REQUESTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 23 December 1848
COURT OF REQUESTS. EVERY man has his humour, is'an old adage; every village has its gossip, say we, even this every day monotonous town of Goulburn has its fruitful topic, which appears to afford an unfailing source of conversation and amusement to its inhabitants. This topic is the Court of Requests: the day on which it is held is considered a " field-day" by many, and well it might be, as a month after the -sitting of the Court, its sayings and doings are the stock gos sip of the town, and a month before the coming sitting, ingenuity is left free to speculate upon the absurdities which are to afford another month's amusement, in relating and canvassing its proceed ings. -This should not be. It may be very amusing for the idlers about the Court, to witness the perpetual scuffling and blustering, which so frequently takes place within its walls; but it is certainly not seemly, nay, it is prejudicial to that respect in which every Judicatory. should be held. Court of Requests are of ...

BENEFIT SOCIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 23 December 1848
BENEFIT SOCIETIES. THE period at which the majority of the Benefit Societies appear to have originated, may, in a general way, be dated at the commencement of the present century. At a period when reason and knowledge had begun once more to resume their wonted places in the devolopement of the mighty concerns of mankind; when the dark and benighted horizon of civilization had again become bright, and illuminated by the vivid darts of almost supernatural talents, daily flash ing against the bigotry, the exclusiveness, and contracted notions of the great; when minds and men were evidently born for the peculiarities of the times, and were spreading, far and wide the clear and uncontrovertible truths, that know ledge was man's birth-right, and ought to be dis eminated to all orders and conditions of society, throughout the inhabited world. It was about this ever-to-be-remembered period, that encou ragement was openly given by the great, the wealthy, and tile influential, to insurance an...

CoLONIrsrs,-IT submit to your perusal the following extract from the WEEKLY DESPATCIt of the 7th of last May, viz.-" The TIMEs speak ing of the Game Laws, asserts the right of every man 'to do what he will with his own,' even when that 'own' is the soil of the country, in the following language:-' If I choose that my estate shall be a skipping ground for hares, what is that to 1\lr. Bright ? I may be ruined, but that ismy affair,' Indeed! But say we, if every body is of that opinion, and every landlord makes his estate a skipping ground *for hares, we shall be starved : we suppose we may, and ' that is our affair.' If A, in his mischievous madness, has a right to kill himself, hlie would have no right to kill B. Push this proposition to its extent, and see what becomes of it. liid man nature, the cause and groundwork of all laws, gives the lih to such abominable preten slons, such murderous claims.
