HENRIETTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 23 December 1848
HENRIETTE. From a Translation by M?r. Tuoests of GEN. ST- HILATISE'S new Work, entitled "Facts illus. trating the Public and Private Life of Na poleon." At Saint Helena, when the weather was favor able, Napoleon always rode out either in his car ringe or on horseback, but as soon as he became familiar with the confined space allotted to him there, he often preferred exploring the secluded roads. After having finished his daily task of dictation (for one of his favorite occupations was Ihe dictation of his memoirs), and spent some hours in reading, he dressed about three o'clock, and then went out, accompanied by General JBertrand, Mons. Les Cases, or Gen. Gourgaud. His rides were all directed to the neighbouring village, which he took much pleasure in ex ploring, and where he found himself more free from observation. Though the roads were in some places almost impassable, his taste for ex ploration seemed to increase rathler than dimi nish-even the pleasure of ranging this valley wa...

TO CORRESPONDENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 23 December 1848
TO CORIRESPONDENTS" T. S. asks us to answer a question to satisfy his curiosity, and that of our "fair readers." However we might desire to oblige the ladies who do us the honor to cast their bright eyes over our columns, we cannot accede to his re quest. The individual alluded to is an un obtrusive gentleman, and, we believe, never considered his pretensions to beauty to be more than ordinary. The handsomest man in GoulbTru has desisted from his vulgar ad vances towards the young and beautiful Miss - ; but we hear he has been doing the dis agreeable to another fair specimen of creation, living in A- Street. The ladies of Goul burn, in Congress, have voted him a nonE. Our Yass' Correspondent is thanked for his at tention. P.

A MAGISTERIAL DECISION. Oun readers will observe in another column a report of a decision in the Police Oflice in this town on Tuesday last,.-which caused much surprise to those present at the time of its delivery, and vwhic; has since been the subject of much animadversion. We allude to the case of a man who summoned his em ployer's agent, Mr. Martyr, for wages due to him. The facts are shortly these:-The complainant entered into service for a specified length of time, and after having performed a portion of it, he refused to complete the term of the agrcement for some assigned reason ; his master told him to go and seek for his wages the best way he could, and gave him a dis charge of service according to the pro visions of Mr. Murray's Act." The man sued his master, who admitted the ser vice, the discharge, and the greater part of the money the man claimed, and, in despite of the whole evidence, the com plaint was dismissed, and the servant left the Court of Justice minus his wag...

[?]TAPH, [?] J. K. HUME. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 23 December 1848
EPITAPH, FOR J. K. HUME. He paid (?) the debt we all must pay, But not in Nature's mildest way; For all the ties that bind to life-- Health, affluence, comfort, children, wife, Parents, and kindred justly dear, &nbsp; A home esteemed both far and near-- Fast held him, when from home he sped, By generous, manly ardour led; For, from the gunshot's sound he guessed Some neighbour there was sore oppressed By Whitton's fierce and ruthless band, Whose deeds of blood rang through the land. Quickly he reached the fatal place, And met the bandit, face to face; &nbsp; &nbsp; When, as he spurned the murderous threat, His dauntless spirit paid the debt &nbsp; That hurried to an early tomb, The generous, kind, intrepid Hume. FELIX.

THE ROYAL VISIT TO SCOTLAND. ARIIVAL OF HER MAJESTY AT ABERDEEN. Aberdeen, Thursday evening-At eight o'clock this morning the Royal yacht Vinnria and Al bert rounded the Girdleness light. and steamed right up into the harbour of Aberdieen. The passage from Woolwich was made in 39 hours and a half, and from the Nore iu 37 hours this last run being without a pjis-rallel in the history of steam navigation between Aberdeen and London. When the Royal yacht was tclegraphed from the Girdleness Lighthouse, the harbour au thorities were quite taken by surprise. From the information of the'embarkation received yester day by the Provost, from Sir George Grey, it was not expected that thie Royal squadron would reach Aberdeen Bay until. seven o'clock this evening, and then only by an effort to save the evening tide. But so perfect were all the ar rangements made for her Meajesty's reception, and so fully alive were the civic authorities to the importance of leaving nothing to be done at the last...

Original Poetry. THE LOCK OF HAIR. THE DYING WIFE TO HER HUSBAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Goulburn Herald and County of Argyle Advertiser — 30 December 1848
THE LOCK OF HAIR. THE DYING WIFE TO HER HUSBBAND, Take this lock, which once adorned The brow on which thou loved to gaze ; When affection for thee, warmed My young heirt in brighter days. 'Twas the pledge which first I gave thee, When thy love response had met; 'Tis the last that now I leave thee, Ere the sun of life be set. Take it, 'twill perchancee remind thee Of her, whose love till death was thine; Keep it, 'twill remain behind me, Still unchanged, by changing time: When the eyes which now behold thee, Cannot tell the love I bore, And the arms which now enfold thee, Shall clasp thee to this heart no more. And when Death his tribute claiming, Shall take from thee my mortal frame, This undying lock remaining, Its silken gloss will still retain. CLAItEN?E LINDEN.
