A slip had been laid down on which to haul up vessels requiring repairs. * The continued arrival of ship loads of cattle, had created, says the Gazette, 'what may be termed a pressure from withorit."

THE BARK OF DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian and Normanby General Advertiser — 24 September 1842

TIHE BARK OF DEATH. In Fancy's world a valley lies, Of dark and fearless hue, Where, noiseless, viewless, vast of size, A river oozes through. Across that river, too and fro, - A bark still glliding keeps; Yet stirs it not the wave beloew, In silence drear that sleeps. e': r, spectral as a cloud by night, That bark appears to view; Nor can the ortn thatgsuides its flight, Be'seen the darkness through. 'Tis Deathl- a shadow huge and dim; lie sits to pilot o'er Enfranchlised ghosts, recalled by him From Time's sprite-haunted shore. Oh' whither glides that spectral bark 1 Far mid the gloom 'tis gone ! Again, through vista long and dark, It comes-with Death alone I SOnce more to Time's o'ershadowed coast ,It speeds --Once more appears, Surcharged'with many a silent ghost, And tow'rds the Future steers. And thus, while Time's dread coarse shall last, O'er that dark river's tide, To fill the Future from the Past, Death's bark shall ever glide.
