POETRY. THOUGHTS BY MOONLIGHT. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 31 January 1842

ftytsvarg. ? THOUGHTS JIY MOONLIGHT. When Evening's gentle breath hath hushed TJie busy world to rest, And sarce a sigh comes stealing forth From Ocean's slumbering breast— When Luna, from her arurc throne, Smiles on the sleeeping earth, A nd dewy flowers, bathed in her light, Scarce seem of worldly birth ; How sweet it is, at that lone hour, ' To wander 'Death her rays, And leave fond memory free to roam 'Mid scenes of bygone days. We ponder on the fairy joys Of childhood's 6eeting years ; The past seemed wreathed in sunny smiles Undimmed by clouds or tears : We wander, dreaming onward still. Life's cares are all forgot ; So fair a world can hold no ill Earth seems a hallowed spot. But suddenly, o'er Luna's light, A cloudy curtain's borne ; The darkest hour in all the night Is that which heralds morn. Soon morning break, and from the east, The monarch of Che day Comes riding forth, and chaselh night, With all it dreams awayl

THE LAUNCESTON COURIER. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 7. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 6 February 1842

THE LAUWGESTON GOURIER. MONDAY, FEBRUARY 7. The prevailing topic of discussion at the pre sent time is the suspension of Captain Montagu from the office of Colonial Secretary. This has excited tlie astonishment of all classes rather than their regret; for whilst the abilities mid statesmanlike integrity claimed by Mr. Montagu's friends on his behalf, are far from being generally known or admitted, the want of resolution, the absence of all firmness and de cision of ; character, which have marked His Excellency's career in this Colony, are apparent to the most common place and superficial ob server o( political events. Whilst therefore, a want of an intimate acquaintance with Mr. Montagu's capacities has prevented the more open expression of that regret which those who itppreciate his talents naturally feel at such an occurrence ; it ha- exritcd the most unbounded astonishment in the minds of all, on account of the strange fit of courage which must have seized His Excellency at the p...
