Notes

  • Appeared in the Empire in 1856 without the author's name indicated.
  • Author's note from Murmurs of the Stream: 'These lines were written in the middle of 1856, on the completion of that political monstrosity, the Donaldson Cabinet, by the appointment of Mr. Thomas Holt to the Treasury - a gentleman entirely unknown to political life, remarkable for his crude opinions and his infirmities of temper, but possessing no single qualification for the successful conduct of public affairs.'
