AGRICULTURAL NOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 24 May 1878

AGRICULTURAL NOTES. Farming operations are progressing very favourably, very encouraging reports being receivedfrom all partsof the country,but be yond the fact of the premising character of the season, the only thing at present complained of seems to be that more than sulfficient rain has fallen, and to ensure a successful termination to the exertions farmers are now putting forth, a little con tinuous fine weather - is necessary. The cold nights lately experienced have had the effect of ohecking the growth of pasture in a trifling degree only. Lambing pro gresses favourably in all the surrounding distriete. The successful navigation of the Gout= burn (says the Age) up as far as Seymour, by Moessrs. PFurchas and Robs, with their steamier Bunyip,carrying a cargo of wheat, -is an incident fraught with deep impor tince ;to that dense section of` recent agricultiural settlement:in the Goilburn Valley, from whence' a fifth of the total wheat yield of the colony is produced.

FATAL ACCIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Kerang Times and Swan Hill Gazette — 24 May 1878

FATAL ACCIDENT. An accident took place on Tues- day last on the main three chain road, about half a mile from the upper township, whereby a boy, named Edmund Flood, lost his life. It seems that Mr. T. Martin, far- mer of Kerang, was driving along the road and deceased was following him   with another horse and dray. The cart deceased was in charge of contained a lot of sundries, amongst other things were some empty beer hogsheads. On one of these, placed on its end, deceased was sitting, and from this elevated position was driving the horse. It is supposed that the wheel of the dray going into a rut with a jerk capsised the cask; which being top heavy from   the boy sitting on the top would be easily done. The barrel with the boy falling on the horse's back, caused the animal to bolt, giving the lad no op- portunity to recover himself. Mr Mar- tin heard the boy call on the horse to stop, and on looking around observed the horse galloping along with the boy ...

That gem in thy heart thou hast faithfully kept Like a sweet thought of love in its utter most deep ; 'Tis the tear which the'pitying flower-angel wept As she kissed thee awake, from thy long wintry sleep. Ah! faint was the smile of'the storm-cradled day That geeted thy coming, pale firstling of Lpring; Cold, cold is the north wind, and rough is the play, And rude is the sweop of his boisterous wing. No murmuring cadence, no lov-softened tone, No low music Wreathing his clarion voice hath ; Fair beautiful smiler, so timid and lone. How dar'st thou bloom ja his pitiless path ? Didst think the warm tearsthat gem-lighted thy gloom, Were weepings of April, who mourned thy delay ? It was only wild March, leading over thy tomb, In tenderness ilful, that died with the day.

SELECT POETRY. RELICS. The violets that you gave are dead They could not bear the loss of you; The spirit of tho.rose is fled It loved you and its love was true; .Back to your lips that spirit flies, To bask beneath your radiant eyes. Only the ashes bide with me, The ashes of the ruined flowers Types of a rapture not to be, Bad relies of bewildering houra Poor, frail, forlorn, and piteous shows Of errant passion's wasted woes. He grandly loves who loves in vain; These withered flowers that lesson teach. They suffered, they did not complain, Their life was love too great for speech, In silent pride their fate they bore They loved, they grieved, they died-no more. Par off the purple banners flare, Beneath the golden mlorning spread; I know what queen is worshipped there, What laurels wreathe her lovely head. Her name be sacred in my thought, And sacred be the grief she brought. For since I saw that glorious face, And heard the music of that voice, MIncl beauty's fallen to disgrace Tha...
