INUNDATION—HANOVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 8 September 1825

INUNDATIONS—HANOVER.     The horrors of the night (says an eye witness who writes from Stade, Hanover, Feb. 5.) from the 3d to the 4th of February, can never be effaced from my memory, were I to live to the age of a Patriarch. About one o'clock, after midnight, the warning guns     from the Fortress of Stade, were fired, to denote to the low lands that the tide was unusually high. I was then standing on an elevated spot, whence, at intervals, as the moon peeped through the dark and lowering clouds. I could see villages and houses, to   a considerable distance, and the ground covered with snow. At about half-after one the wind became tempestuous, and the water instantly gained four feet, and continued to rise amidst the howling of the wind; the firing of the alarm-guns, the rolling of thunder, and flashes of lightning, till, at once, a rushing of mighty waters announced the demolition of the dykes. The   sc...

EATHLINA'S LAMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 8 September 1825

EATHLINA'S LAMENT.   BY MISS GORE.   "Desolate is the dwelling of Inoina. Silence is in the house of her fathers. Raise the song of mourning, O bards, over the land of strangers. They have fallen before us."           Air — Erin go bragh !   Defaced are the halls, where my ancestors revell'd —     Wept a wanderer, sad straying along the sea shore ;   Whose dark streaming hair, the wild wind dishevelled, As she mourned for the days forever gone o'er. She told of 'A tli O'Connor; that hero of glory, - Whose name long will live in Ireland's story ; 1' Oh ! me, while she sung what sadness came o'er me, . To think that such greatness can never be more. To Connaught she said, go hear of their honor, _ ' Go— hear of their deeds in Ulster, so true ; 'Go — hear of the valor of overy O Connor, Who fought for his country and liberty too.
