A DINNER IN ST. GILES'S. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 2 March 1867

A DINNER IN ST. GILES'S. It is refreshing to withdraw our atten tion from the contemplation of past, and the anticdipation of fuiture strifes, fromi comparing the accounts of the havock the Needle Gun has done, with the prom ise of what it will perpetrate under. Mr. Dreyses newest improvements, and the endless accounts of experiments of Palli sier guns versus ironclads,. all having for their object the destruction and mutila tion of man by his fellow, to say nothing of the heated passions and the maddened roar of multitudes urged on by empty demagogues to seek what they never can obtain, and last though not least in evil hardening influencies religious anta gonism, with all its want of christian charity. Leaving the din of murderous inventions, the fury of excited mobs, and the bitterness of contending creeds let us accompany-the Christian Minister, to the abodes of poverty and wretchedness, bringing if not a cure for, yet an allevi ation of, human misery and suffering along with th...

CHIPS BY A SANDAL WOOD CUTTER. OUR GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 2 March 1867

SHiPS BY A SANDAL WOOD CUTTER. ' OUR OVERNOR. I've great regard for the Governor, and believe him to be a real gentleman, and I'll tell you why.' One day as I was trottin' along on shanks's pony with my rug and my pannican at my back, who should come tearin' along in a Faton drawn by two splendid horses,-one with his knees broke-but His Excellency, actin' as his own coachman, and thereby settin' people a good example ofhummi lity and economy; for if the Governor ain't ashamed to drive his own coach, colonists needn't be ashamed to drive their' own drays. Well, being moved with profound respect for the representa tive of Her M?ost Gracious Majesty,-that ain't bad is it for me.-I raises in the most respectful- manner my well worn straw hat, and the Governor with the condescension that marks the true gentle man,Sifts gracefully -with his whip-hand the white beaver that so well becomes him, and smilin' kindly and graciously, dashes by me,-smotherin' me with dust.

POTRY FROM MY DARTER, :I love, oh! how I love to hear .... Love's tender accents greet mine ear; On peerless fancies I arise, Veiled in a thousand mystic sighs. E'er as my thoughts at midighit roam , A hallowed glory seems to come; Placid and grand to make my breast: ..: L:ucient with gems from pleasure's crest.

A CONVERSAZIONE, BY THE COSTERMONGER. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 2 March 1867

A CONVERSAZIONE, BY THE COBTERMONPGER, Since I writ my larst I've bought a secretary a curious sort o' pusson as bristles all over with larnin' like a black kat with electric sparks. He knows how everything should he done,though he can't do nothin' hisself. He can tell yer to at how the Government ought to spend their odd seventy millions o' taxes, but he couldnt keekp the ledger in a chandler's shop. He's also writ a couple o' books on Heroism and Love, though he ain't got cruelty enuff in him to drown a kitten, and as for wimmen he's as frightened o' Pmyrer as if she was a Guy Fox,.. and keeps a Sstammerin' aid twitchin' his long :fingers in a .nervous kind o' way when he's talkin' to her, like the biggest gaby alive. .Natur ought to ha' made him one of the saufter sex, for he's got allthe velvet-heartedness of luvly woman, though he's nearly six foot high. But for all that, he's a fust-rate feller, honist and uprite, with a slite stoop in the sholeders, and very industrius ; for,...

(To the Editor of the Herald.). [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 2 March 1867

(To-the Edtior of t/e Herald.)j. SIR, SI was much intesested in the.perusal of an article in your first issue of the 9th instant on our Foreign Trade. Sound in principle and? truthful in fact, the observations of the writer are deserving of careful considerations by every well wisher of the colony. No one who has the most superficial acquaintance with the principles of commerce can fail to see, that the trade, as at present carried on between this colony and our Eastern neighbors is only a one-sided affair; the advantage being to them, the loss with us. Our orders enable them to relieve their markets of a considerable quantity of inferior goods, for which they receive payment in cash. Such transactions do immense injury to the colony, at large, and must ultimately result in grievous failures and losses. There soon comes an end to such an imprudent manner of conducting business. The small hrader who imports goods from the other colo niesfor which oe gives his Bill, is either compelle...

LOOK OUT FOR A WIFE. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 2 March 1867

Loox oUT OR A WIPE.--Young man, keep your eyes open when you are after the women. If you bite at the naked hook yon are green Is a pretty dress or form so attractive; or a pretty face even ? • Flounces, boy, are no sort of consequence. A pretty face will grow old. Paint will wash off. The sweet smile of the flirt will give way to the scowl of the termagant. The neat form will be pitched into dirty calico. Another and a far different being will take the place of the lovely goddess who smiles and eats your sugar candy. The coquette will shine in the kitchen corner, and with the once sparkling eyes and beaming countenanee will look daggers at you. Beware 1 If the dear is cross, and scolds at her mother in the back room, you may be sure you will get particular fits all over the house. If she blushes when found at the wash tub, with her sleeves rolled up. be sure she is of the dishrag aristocracy-little knowledge and a great deal less sense. If you marry a girl who knows nothing but to c...

BITTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 2 March 1867

BITTERS. I have not much time to spare for reading newspapers, and when I do read one, I like it to be thoroughly good.. Looking at one of our colonial papers the other day I was struck by the unde signed force of truth presented; for instance, amongst the) advertisements I read, "ex Fitzroy," Ales, Porter, Wines, Spirits, " BITT.IS." How sadly true! the word may be taken as indicating the baneful effect of the strong drinks im ported upon the people. "Bitters" they are in truth. How bitter the feelings of some who have been degraded by a night's carouse How bitter the lamentations of some who, through the potent influence of intoxicating drink have perpetrated some foul deed of darkness ? How bitter the reproaches of others, who have sacrificed for strong drink what he had,-saved for some decefit clothing for t;heir wives and little ones? O 0 how intensely bitter the feelings of some young and aimable girl--the pride oi a- father' house, and loved of a fond , mother's heart, - when...

It came when it rained, dark as pitch, and my umbrella at the oftice. The doctor lived due west, and the nurse six miles due east, and when I got home the milkman was at the door. It is a funny little chip that baby-Soferino colour and the length of a Bologna sausage. It commenced its career just when muslin, linen, and flannel were at the highest. A poor little thing is that baby; a speck of a nose like a wart; head as bald as a squash; mouth just united to come the gum game, and chew miik It's apleasure to have a baby in the house-- one of the stomach-ache kind.

RITUATISM, We lately published at full length the charge of the Bishop of London, a doenument which places before its reiaders the questions at issue, between the Bishops, a large mxajodty of the clergy, and the great holy of the people, on the one side, and a smal partion of the clergy, and the laity on t~he olther, and thS so clearly, that any further attempt to exp?la the nature of this strange movement to restre obsolete torwalities, diseotmataud robes and dresssa and distiuetiv9 o jra entstiozt would be superiuous That they are distasteful to the great budy of-Ithi- j;p;e i L Evidenti from the irreverent oppoitioni, stica on all occ&ions where they have been introduced.

ARTEMUS WARD. THE AMERICAN HUMORIST. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 9 March 1867

ARTEMUS WARD. TH'E AM?RICAN IHUMORIST. Artemus Ward is, as a true humorist should be even better than his books. What his per sonal influence adds fo the humour of his stories is not of course always easy to analyze, but mainly, we think, this-the impression which he contrives to produce, that his con fusions of thought and speech are all inevitable on his own part~, that his mind drifts on helplessly from one'ofthese grotesque ideas or expressions to the next, as the creature or victim of some overruling power, which chooses his thought and language for him, so that he is not e'-en a party to the transaction, though he has an earnest and rather melan choly interest in the result. When he first comes on to the platform, with his long, hollow-cheeked face, and his bright, sad, interogative eyes, we should expect from him, if we knew nothing about the matter, almost anything rather than cause for laughter. He might be, were he not a little too quiet and polished in manner, an eager ph...
