Select Poetry. RECOLLECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — Geelong Advertiser — 7 August 1841
&nbsp; Select Poetry. &nbsp; RECOLLECTIONS. I'm sitting on the stile, Mary, Where we sat side by side, On a bright May morning long ago, When first you were my bride. The corn was springing fresh and green, And the lark sang loud and high, And the red was on your lip, Mary, And the love-light in your eye. The place is little changed, Mary, The day is bright as then, The lark's loud song is in my ears, The corn is green again ; But I miss the soft clasp of your hand, And your breath warm on my cheek, And I still keep listening for the words You never more can speak. 'Tis but a step down yonder lane, And the little church stands near, The church where we were wed, Mary, I see the spire from here. But the graveyard lies between, Mary, And my step might break your rest — For I've laid you, darling, down to sleep, With your baby on your breast. &nbsp; I'm very lonely now, Mary, For the poor make no new friends, But ah, they love the better still, The few our Fathe...

"Tile RAG." The Melbourne papers have been engaged in a struggle for supremacy 'or the last bix months, and the warfare has been carried on by the beiligerant parties with, unabated zeal, untiring patience, anti ever-wakeful vigilance. Remote, as we are, from the scene of coniflict, we care little for the result of the fight; we are only spectators, and from our elevated tribhune in the amphi. theatre, can look down with com placency upon the ensangulned arena whereon the gladiatorial combatants contentl for victory. As spectators, however, it is our duty to see fair play, and ie cannot resist an occasional er clamation of ' IsabetLi' or 'non babetL ' according as the fortune of the day favours the r'sjrec(ive champions.

The cause of complaint against His Honor the Judge, which I treated of in my former letter, would ,ot have had any perceptible effect except upnn the wounded vanity of the INCAPABLtS; but the second and grand offence-.the offence wvhich cuts deepest and extonls farthest-is the Judge's call upon the Magistrates to be up and doing. tie' calls upon them to arise and attend at their post o1 duty: an hohiorable call. But the barbed Prrow that ratklt-s in the breasts of these magttates is, thitt they ought to attend to learn their DUTY.

INDEPENDENCE oF PORT PHILLIP. .By an ertract from tile Times news paper, which will be found in another; column, it would 'appear that Port: Phillip has been separated from this colony.
