THE PUBLIC HEALTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph, St Kilda, Prahran and South Yarra Guardian — 23 February 1867
TEIE PUBLIC HEALTIH. We'publiehed sIst wveek soine extracts from the Registrar-General's Vital Statistics of Melbourne and its subn hbs for the q~anrter and month ending December 31st, 1830. In nowv directing attention to that article in these columns, we base our justification-if such be needeod--on the strong impression that the article in qnestion, though containinng acts that ought to be universally knolwn, is of the class which is usually ' skipped" by the nmajority of readers. Its array of figures has a repellant effLct. They drive the general reader away in disgust, and it is only here and there one who gives them the attention the) unidoub.tedly deserve. Now these figures are the result of a sort of stock-takirg of the public health. They show us whether. we are improving or retrograding in this vitally important matter. They not otly tell us how many persons die, but they classifa ' the diseases under which they succuterhed,; and by making a com'parison with preceding perio...

AMUSEMENTS, SPORTS, &c. "And because right is right, to follow right Were wisdom in the scorn of consequence." TENNYSON. "Thank God I'm in a civilized country." Such-was the exclamation of a poor ship wrecked mariner, tossed for days-and weeks. on the wide ocean in an empty boat; and re duced to the horrible alternative ofstarvation or banqueting on human flesh. The occasion of this strong outburst of gratitude was the sight he then obtained of an island which showed unmistakeable evidence of the exist once of- a civilized state of socieiy. This evidence of civilization was a chained skeleton on a gallows,iswinging from side to side and jingling the chains with every gust of wind. No one who for -the first time entered either of the two Melbourne theatres this last week could have conscientiously made this exlasnation. At the Royal, in the sweltering heat occasioned *by a well-filled house and a warm night, he might have seen fields and huts completely hidden by masses of fa...
