Gipps Land Guardian, Friday, 26th October, 1855. THE BATTLE OF PREROGATIVE AND OF RIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 26 October 1855
©tews Hanti &lt;@uartofan, Friday, 2Qf,h Octobcr, 1855. THE BATTLE OF PREROGATIVE AND OP RIGHT. The act of Sir Henry Young- in proroguing the Legislative Council of Tasmania, when in the height of a struggle effectively to carry out an enquiry into the flagrant abuses of one department of the Govern ment, is one over which we hardly know whether to rejoice or be sad. Looking at a government, and considering its relation to a people, every good citizen desires the maintenance of most entire harmony be tween the governing and governed. The interaction between these is of necessity productive of irritation, which may be either healthy and pleasant, or torturing and maddening1. Some phisiologists have laid it down as a doctrine that the human frame presents a combination of parts and functions which, constantly acting upon this principle of mutual irritation, result in the general soundness, strength, and pleasure of the whole ; and that, where a prepon derance of this power is ...
RAILWAYS AND LAND SALES. [Newspaper Article] — Gippsland Guardian — 26 October 1855
RAILWAYS AND LAND SALES. Our friends at Sydney have had a grand ovation on the opening1 of their railway; and they have glorified themselves, as they so well know how to do, at the expense of their neighbours, on the acquisition of the longest working line in the Australian colonies. They have got sixteen miles completed to Paramatta; at an expense we believe of about £30,000 per mile. But it is not the first railway opened on this continent; although we would not detract from the credit of the Legislature and the Government that have persevered so nobly in their useful undertaking. With smaller resources' than ourselves, a more difficult country to pass .through, and incomparable less traffic with the interior, than we have with the gold-fields, to encouiage them; they/have persisted—we will not say.dog ; geclly, but manfully—in . their. herculean • task] and they have accomplished enough to interest even local ignorance and native bigotry in the extension' of the project. - It is ...

POETRY. SONG or THE FARMER. 'Give to the lord his palace grand, And halls of splendid pride j A fig for all his dignities, ■ And all his pomp beside! Give me the Farmer's peaceful home, Beneath the maples high, "Where nature's warblers wake the song The waters prattling nigh. The citizen may love the town, And Fashion's gaudy show; The brilliant pageantry of Art May please the eye, I know; But Nature's charms delight the heart, All simple though they be; The acres broad, the streamy vales, The lowing herds for me! What though the bronze is on our cheek, Toil-calloused is our hand, With honest pride we stand erect, The nobles of the land; •For " patriot truth," that spirit bright, In this wide world so rare, Points proudly to the Fanner's home, And cries—My own are there! cnontjs. Then here's to him who tills the soil, - The true, the strong, the brave! Without him Art, would fly the land, And Commerce leave the wave; And yet no frown of hauteur cold • Disdains his manly brow;— ; Hai...
