    Author's note: To the Editor of the Australasian Chronicle. Sir, - This short poem contains sentiments which [I] know from the manly sympathy for the poor Emigrant's sufferings, evinced in recent articles on that subject, you appreciate; and I have a hope it will be deemed not unworthy a place among the more important matter which occupies the Chronicle.
