ORIGINAL POETRY. SONG: THE LITTLE GIRL I LOVE. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 June 1854

ORIGINAL POETRY. SONG: THE LITTLE GIRL I LOVE. By Murray's banks I met her first, Gath'ring the sweet wild flowers, Herself the sweetest flower that grows, In all Australian bowers. And by the crystal Murray's banks Should you e'er chance to rove, Then haply you may meet her too The little girl I love. . You'll know herby her violet eye, . And by her raven hair, And by the soft and tender sigh That heaves her bosom rare. And by her shy and lawn-like look, And by her feet that move More lightly than a fawn's, you'll know The little girl I love. . . . . . 1 No jewels shine, like stars, within' The midnight of her hair, -, Or glitter round the crescent moon That forms her forehead fah\ ' . : No wealth she has-but wealth she jj, All worldly wealth above ; And this Wealth she has given me ' The little girl 1 love.

MISCELLANEA. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 June 1854

MISCELLANEA. A DEATH-BED REVELATION.-A large wine dealer residing in London, recentljr on Iiis death-bed, being in great distress of mind, acknowledged to his friends that his agbny was occasioned by the nature of the business he had followed for years. He stated that it had been his habit to purchase all the sour wines he could, and by making use of sugar of lead, and other deleterious sub- stances, restore the wine to a palatable taste. He said he did not doubt he had been the means of destroying hundreds of lives, as he had from time to time noticed the injurious effects of his mix- tures on those who drarik them. He had seen instances of this kind where the unconscious victims bf his cupidity, after wasting and declining for years, despite of the best medical advice, went to their graves, poisoned by the adulterated wines he had sold them. This mau died rich, but alas, what a legacy did he leave for his children. A "BEARD UNION" is in course of formation at Edinburgh its object ...

THE SOLDIERS' WIVES' AND CHILDRENS' RELIEF FUND. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 June 1854

THE SOLDIERS' WIVES' AND-CHILDRENS' RELIEF EU NI). WE have never been of opinion that the colonists of Aus- tralia had ranch cause for personal alarm in the event of a war between England and Russia. That the latter power, menaced as she is hy the tremendous naval forces of Great liri tain and France, should dispatch any formidable squa- dron to these seas seems to be entirely out of the question, and not for a moment to be apprehended. A hostile visit from a stray man-of-war, or the sudden swoop of the pre- datory privateer, that hawk of the ocean, appears to be the utmost danger we can reasonably anticipate. . By these remarks we do not mean to disparage any measures of defence which the Executive may, deem it requisite to adopt, We mean simply to remind our fellow-colonists that our countrymen at home are at this moment engaged in an arduous and bloody contest in which we . have no part, and from the dangers and carnage of which our posi- tion affords us almost a perfect security...

A BLOOMER. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 June 1854

' ? ? A BLOOMER. Few men have ever gone to Congress with more fun and popularity than the Hon. Leslie Combs of.Kentucky. In the way of anecdotes he is unequalled, while his mode of telling stories imparts a tone to them that no one can appreciate who has not made his acquaintance. Amongst the " characters" that Mr. Combs knows like a book, is old Major Luckey, whose taste for bragging amounts at times to the sublime. Whenever the Major has a stranger in the neighbourhood, he " opens wide and spreads himself," and with a success- that leaves us nothing to desire. The following scene took place be- tween the Major and Col. Peters, "a late arrival" from Illinois:- _ * " Major, I understand from Gen. Coombs, that shortly after the Revolution you visited England ; how did you like that jaunt ?" " Capitally ! I had not been in London five hours be- fore Rex sent for me to play 'whist, and a devil of a time we had of it." " Rex ! what Rex ?" " Why, Rex the King-George the Third. The game c...

REVIEW. COLLIER'S ANCIENT MANUSCRIPT CORRECTIONS TO THE TEXT OF SHAKESPEARE'S PLAYS. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Sydney News — 17 June 1854

... REVIEW.. COLLIER'S ANCIENT' MANUSCRIPT CORRECTIONS TO THE TEXT OF SHAKESPEARE'S PLAYS. , (Concluded from page The opening speech of the Duke in Measure for Measure, has, perhaps, occasioned as much- controversy amongst the commenta- tors, as any passage in the plays of Shakespeare. Rowe, Theobald, Warburton,1 Johnson, Sir T, Hanmer, S tee vens, Tyrwhit, M. Mason, and Malone, all exercised their ingenuity upon it, and all proposed to elucidate the text by some- new reading. An impar- tial reader will,-we think, readily part with the whole of their con- jectures, for the emendations of Collier's folio. The old corrector alters two little words, and strikes out three others, and what was before obscure, is " plain as way to .parish church." We subjoin the received text, and the corrector's emendations. The Duke speaking to Escaíus, says . " Of government the properties to unfold, Would seem in me to affect speech and discourse : Since I am put to know, that your own science, Exceed...
