CONTEMPORARY OPINIONS. FAITH AND MODERN SCEPTICISM. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 2 January 1875

CONTEMPORARY OPINIONS. FAITH AND MODERN SCEP TICISM. THERE have seldom been two such "consiliences," or two -clouds of "molecules" interacting with such harmonious force and happy effect, as the solemn declaration loft by M. Guizot and Professor Pritchard's paper read at Brighton. They both show that combination of faith and fearless. ness which leads to the grandest conceptions, and the firmest-indeed, the only real and solid-convictions. In both these papers, though the one is an exhaustive survey, and the other brief as a creed, we road the history of a battle which has now been raging for a century. Professor Pritchard began by clearly stating, and discussing as fully as the very briof limit of time allowed,, the Inew phlloa~phytof.:ceerthik totki con taining,; zs .they. ,were,;thepnteantialty oftlis' oitiro e'oaotion,Tinaterial;, mor *aili itual. or *,hi , not nbt d''+ebiulili after all interactions in all the sub. stances, shapes, forms, species, modes of existence, and manner...

J. STUART MILL'S TESTIMONY TO CHRIST. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 2 January 1875

. STUART MILTL'S TIESTIMONY TO CHRIST. ?rh. Mill has, towards tho conoluslon of 'l third essny, loft on record tho following iteranco in roforenco to the ohnraotor of brist : "''ho most valuablo part of tho offoot on o0 charactr which Christianity has pro. duced by holding up in a Divine person a standard of excellence and a model for imitation is available even to the absolute unbeliever, and can never more be lost to humanity. For it is Christ rather than God whom Christianity has held up to believers as the pattern of perfection for humanity. It is the God incarnate more than the God of the Jews or of nature who, being ideal ised, has taken so great and salutary a hold on the modern mind. And whatever else may be taken away from us by rational criticism, Christ is still left; a unique figure not more unlike all precursors than all His followers, even those who had the direct benefit of His personal teaching. It is of no use to say that Christ, as exhibited in the Gospels, is not ...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 2 January 1875

TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERIacUY. Sir-In looking over an old print the other day I came across an article on adulteration, which would certainly seem to apply to Melbourne and suburbs at the present time. The writer says-" The people would do well to keep the dairyman, the baker, and the grocer honest by means within their power." He goes on to say--"Let it be supposed that a few enter prising chemists, enabled by their standing to command public confidence, were to establish some central laboratory, well advertise the scheme, and publish a scale of charges-moderate and enticing. Notwith standing the feeble measure, of support the law would at presentrender them, their test-tables, retorts, and crucibles would never be empty." Now, we will take the case of suspected baker, who substitues potato-starch or other materials for flour, or who supplies flour, the product of diseased wheat clarified by a large pro portion of alum-would it not be conferring a benefit upon society to call into ...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 2 January 1875

TO TIIE EDITOR OF TIIE MERCURY. Sir-An idea has occurred to mo, whioh, if carried out, might, I think, be of great. benefit to this district. We are shortly to have an exhibition of art and manufactures in Melbourne, preparatory to the Inter national Exhibition in Philadelphia. It has occurred to me that we should have a local Exhibition in the Fitzroy Town Hall, preparatory to the Exhibition in Latrobe street. When we consider what a large proportion of the industries of the colony are carried on in the districts of Fitzroy and Collingwood, it will be at once seen that there is plenty of material out of whicht' to produce pm. very-interesting ud?m instmrdqtive oollegtioiL .Thaihn M fiazbita & would :resiult to the distric,ifrrqnit7 carrying out of this suggestion are so many ,nd obvious that I: need nob Ocoupy. yofir space in enumerating or explaining them, The building which I have indicated is admirably adapted for the purpose, and if the idea were properly taken up and t...

[?] THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 2 January 1875

THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. May I avail myself of your columns and bring attention of the proper authori- ities of the present objectionable phase of social life in Fitzroy? Every Sunday evening from seven till nine o'clock, and often considerably later, the footpath on the east side of Brunswick street, from Gertrude street to some distance below Wesley church is rendered almost impassable to any one, and totally so to any respectable female, by the crowds of stripplings who congregate   there. These youths, though generally well dressed, prove unmistakably by the low and filthy language in which they indulge, to what class they belong. The policemen on   the beat seem unable to cope with the evil. There is a large and respectable congrega- tion attends the Brunswick street Wesley     Church, and it is a disgrace to our muni-   cipal authorities that the ears of young girls and children should be polluted by the obscen...

The Town Clerk was instructed to reply, referring the secretary to the advertisement in local paper. A letter was read from 'Dr. Singleton, M.D., referring to the statements of Ors.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 2 January 1875

TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. Sir,-I perceive that my letter has called forth a rejoinder from, Mr. J. Mirams. At the outset I wish to remark- that Mr. M. is a gentleman for whom I entdrtain the highest respect. Mr. M. says the "begging system" has always been in vogue; to which I reply-of course it has; but not to the extent that prevails at the present time. Mr. M. cannot believe that people are so " mean and sordid" as to allow the begging system to influencetheir attendance at church. But Mr. M. must be aware-if not, I must acquaint him with the fact that there are numbers of people who cannot afford either to go to church or to the theatre. These persons have fine feelings, and prefer to absent themselves from church rather than sit writhing under the stinging' remarks of a begging sermon. In church, they feel that they are intruders -that'they are not wanted-that the eyes of the church officers are on them; hence their absence. But in spite of what Mr. M. says to the contrary,...

SATURDAY, JAN. 2, 1875.   Or all the social problems of the day which await solution, one of the most difficult, and at the same time most urgent, is that involved in the treatment and disposal of our. rapidly increasing dependent class. That this class is far too numerous. in proportion to our population' will not, we imagine be disputed. It embraces a great variety of characters, from the deserted infant to the hardened and confirmed criminal; from .the drunken . "loafer," to .the incurable lunatic; and' entails a cost upon the community at:large,,altogether out of proportion to our .resources; or to the absolute. necessities, of the case.

SATURDAY, JAN. 9, 1875. THE idea thrown out by our corres pondent, Mr. Mirrns, in last week's issue, we cordially commend to the consideration of all who are interested in the advancement of the district. That "Exhibitions" have been of imn monso advantago in the past is unques tionablo and, we blilove, unquestioned. That the samo benefits, in degree, would be derived fiom a local exhi bition is equilly certain. Nothing of the kind has over beoe attempted in .the district, if we except the School of Works Exhibitions, and the undertaking thorefore, would have all tho attriation of novelty.
