Poetry. ORIGINAL AND SELECTED. LAY OF THE GOVERNMENT OFFICER. (A Parody.) [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 3 February 1855

ORIGINAL AND SELECTED. LAY OF THE GOVERNMENT OFFICER. (A Pa rod j.) There is a sound that's harsh to me ; It haunts me in my sleep ; I ivake, and if I hear it still I cannot choose but weep : i Above the roaring of the wind, I Above the river's flow, I Methinks I hear the dreaded cry | Of'Joe!-Joe!-Joe!' i j From diggers' lips it sounds afar, j And flies from tree to tree ; It's note is strange to 'new chum' ears, But 'tis not strange to me : For it hath shook these golden fields At least two years ago ; And ' traps' have quailed before the cry Of' Joe !-Joe !-Joe !' Oh sink the word-renew it not; That time may soon efface The memory of that hated sound, That marks the mining race: For not by dark and shaggy beard The digger shall you know, So well as by the taunting cry Of'Joe!-Joe!-Joe!' I E'en now, perchance, on Buckland'sbank3, j Or Reid's Creek's peaceful glade, Where, dial-like, to portion time, The gum-trees cast their shade, The ' peelers/ wending on their way, Will hasten a...

ETYMOLOGICAL INVENTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 3 February 1855

ETYMOLO GICA L INVENTIONS. (jFrom the Month.) We perceive with great alarm, the in creasing number of abstruse names given to various simple articles of clothing and com merce. There are some *' Eureka " shirts at six for forty shillings, which most offen sively thrust themselves in one's face every where, until you entertain anything but a desire to buy them ; and there are also i'iiana coats, Pardessux, Eedingotcs, Sip ho iiias. Ponchos, Sans-pits, 'Togas, Aquascu lums, and all sorts of distressing articles advertised, right and left and around, in the desperation of the inventors. Rather to keep a head of the world than even to run with it, we intend to register-or dispose of for a consideration-the sole right of producing the following articles : The Protean Chrononhotonlologos, or Changeable Surtout, the tails of which button under to form a dress coat; can be reefed to make a shooting coat; folded into a Newmarket cut-a-way; or taken away j altogether to turn into a sailing ja...

Literature. TACT versus TALENT. [Newspaper Article] — Ovens and Murray Advertiser — 3 February 1855

Literature. TACT versus TALENT. (From the Imperial Magazine.) TALENT is something, but not everything. Talent is serious, sober, grave, and respect able. Tact is all that and more too ; it is not a seventh sense, but it is the life of all the five ; it is the open eye, the quick ear, the judging taste, the keen smell, and the lively touch ; it is the interpreter of all riddles, the surmounter of all difficulties, the remover of all obstacles. It is useful m all places and at all times, it is useful in solitude, for it shows a man his way into the world ; it is useful in society, for it shows him his way through the world. Talent is power ; tact is skill. Talent is weight; tact is momentum. Talent knows what to do; tact knows how to do it. Talent makes a man respectable ; tact will make him respected. Talent is wealth ; tact is ready money. For all the practical purposes of life, tact carries it against talent ten to one. Take them to the theatre, and put them against each other on t...
