LAUNCESTON ADVERTISER. MONDAY, MAY 10, 1830. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 10 May 1830

LA UNCESTON ADFER TISE R. MONDAY, MAY 10, 1830. It is the public duty of a Journalist to dispel delusion; but in the discharge of this duty he must not expect to find his road perfectly free from the arrows of those who are interested in preventing the /Egis of truth from confronting and dissipating their power. We have beheld with feelings of great ; regret, that covert or indiscreet attacks'! have been made upon an able and (as far lime lias yet developed), upright and strictly conscientious Public Officer. It is one of the greatest follies which the Press can at any time possibly commit, that is, when they foolishly note down, or hold up to public view, those erring weaknesses to which human nature is so very prone, ib cases in which the Pub lic are in no ways injured. Our present Attorney General holds an office of the highest importance to the whole of the community, possess ing, as be undoubtedly does, far more power than any grand Jury, together with all the powers (ex-offici...

LONG AGO. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 10 May 1830

LONG AGO. Long ago! oh, long ago?— Do noi those words real! past years, And. scarcely knowing why they flow, Force to the eyes unbidden tears ? So ve uot feel, as back they come, Those dim sweet dreams of olden days, A yearning to our childhood's Lome, Peopled with tones of love and praise — Long, long ago ? long ago ! when many a sound Awoke to mirth which saddens now, And man}1 au eye was sparkling round That weps benca h a darkened brow : When with our whole young happy hearts We loved and laughed away the time, Nor thought how quickly all departs, So cherished in life's early prime Long, long ago ! loiifr ago ? tljc hopes we nurst, Of happiness oleaithly fame, Were bright as bubbles are that burst— A glittering drop, an empty name! Oh, but to be one hour again (Whatever that sweet hour might cost) Fiee from dim memory's torturing pain, With those we loved— with those \- e lost — Long, long ago , Lon? ago ! who breathes tbere here O'er whom the past hath no such power; Young hear...
