SELECTED POETRY. A WIFE'S APPEAL. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 9 February 1867
SELECTED POETRY. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; A WIFE'S APPEAL. [The following lines are from the pen of an American lady, and their circulation in the United States is said to have been attended by the hap- piest results.] You took me, William, when a girl, unto your home and heart, To bear in all your after-fate a fond and faithful &nbsp; part; And tell me have I ever tried that duty to forego, Or pined there was not joy for me when you were sunk in woe ? No; I would rather share your tear than any other's glee, For though you're nothing to the world, you're all the world to me. You make a palace of my shed, this rough-hewn bench a throne, There's sunlight for me in your smiles, and music in your tone; I look upon you when you sleep—my eyes with tears grow dim, &nbsp; I cry, 'Oh, Parent of the Poor, look down from heaven on him ; &nbsp; Behold him toil from day to day, exhausting strength and soul ; Oh, look with mercy on him, Lord, for thou ...

AWKWARD SLIPS OF THE PEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 16 February 1867
AWKWARDnn SarPs O 'TrIsPN,-General Taylor lmmortalised himself by perpetratin one of the grandl?t bulls on record, in which io attained what a cortaln temporary professor calls "a porfootion hardly to be surpassed." In his presldontIal addross he announced to the American Congroess thaLt the United Statos .wore at peace with all the world, and continued to ohorish rela. tions of amity towards the rest of mankind. Much aimplor was the blunder of the English officer durlng the Indian mutiny, who informed the publio that, thanks to the prompt menoasuros of Colonol Edwards, the sepoys at Fot otMachison "were all unarmoed and taken aback, and, being called upon, laid down their arms." Thoro was nothing very astonishing in an Irish paper stating that Robohl,iorro "left no childron behind him, except a brother, who was killed at the same time j" but it was startling to have an English journal assure us that JImr 'Majesty Queen Vio' oria was "the last person to wear another man's crown."

GISBORNE. (FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT.) [Newspaper Article] — The Bacchus Marsh Express — 16 February 1867
GISBORNE., (Rao, ouIn CoaU],:srONrNr.) There was a large laud sale here on Tuesday last, at which extraordinary high prices were realised. This is a proof of the wisdom of holding sales of Crown lands as near as possible to the locality in which the land is situated, HaEd these allotments been sold at Melbonrne, instead of at Gisborne, doubtless the whole of them would have fallen into the hands of one man, and at the upaUt price; certainly they would not have realised the pries they did. \e give the names of the purchasers, and the price per acre. It will be seen that, of the twenty four allotments offered, every one was sold, and only one of them at the upset price. The others varying in price firom ?5 to £18 5S, per acre. SUIIULIBAN LO'TS., County unnamed, parish of Gisborne, Adjoining the'township of Gisborne, on the road from Ieolbourne to Ceastlemaine, and on the westoern branch of the Baltwater River.

Turnus is so much originality about the man niers arnd habits of the traplper and frionticrsman, that one is struck with their pcOuliar' language or meold of OX)Oressing themselves, Ias well as ltheir sing'ulair costume. 'They are1 in fi'act, as dlistinot .and markeod a class as nsailors, and Irove as mnay odd and quaint sayings.

ATUR.DAY, 'EBIUAIRYI 16, 1867. 'l'IIE Royal Commission on Education have laid their report before Parliament. The Commission had a ta?sk of extreme difliculty to perform, ned one involving a vast amount of labour in collating evidence in reforcnce to the working of tihe present system of education, and the best means Ly which that system could be improved and tadapted to our circumnstanuces and irequirements. ''lThe matters remitted to the Commission are of paramount importance to the interests of the colony, Trha qulestions which often excite the feelings andl eloquence of honourable members are of utter insignificeance compared with this mo mentons question of education, on which depends, in a great measure, what shall hbe the character and habits of the future genera- I tions of Victoria. We cannot help arriving at the conclusion that our brethren of New South Wales are now reaping the results of their fobrmer neglect in relation to this sub ject, in the lawlessness and crime whi...

PARLIAMENT OF VICTORIA. TUESDAY, FaDnUAISY 12. In the Legislative Council nothing of imlortance was done, His Excellenoy the Governor attended to give his formal assent to some routine legis. lation in connection witlh insolvenoy hlw and the appropriation of roevenu., In the Legilativeo Assembly-Mr, Blackwood presented a petition from the Clhamber of Com merce against the new tariff. Mr. Riclhardson resumed the debalte on the tariff by moving " 'That, in the opinion of the Hlouse, the proposed alterations in the tariff are not satisfactory, and neither tound to the oncouragement of colonial industry, nor the crtcnsion of conmmerce." He hld taken the stop of moving this simply as a iprotectionist nmember, as lhe was satisfied that the presenot tariff would bring the protectionisit prin ciple into contempt, and it would be said that it had failed. The Trea'l' crrr, in his speech, had said that this and that duty wnas not protective, but protcctionist menmbiors expected protection, MIr...

Tim IIIsTOIY ov A RACEHoRSE..-The lhtsisralrd London News gives a curious account of the vicissi tudes of the olitfe of ''he Cure, a famous racing sire. The CureI began his canor well, winning the Champagne takesr, but afterwards gradually went down in the world until he found himself at Lord Airlie's breeding establihmluu nt in Scotland, where, as he was not thought much of as a sire, an attempt wae mntde to turn him into a hunter. But he doeclined to rise at his leaps, and after he had broken a groom's log he was eventuilly disposed of, lanlme, for seven and sixpence, to a doctor. This gentloman managed to get hhn sound again, and rode him for :several years as a hack in his practice, occasiontlly racing him a little with tolerable success.
