THE ARGUS ON DAVID HENRY'S SENTENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 23 November 1878

THE AR4GUS ON DAVID HENRY'S SENTENCE. -No one who values the pure adminis tration of.justice-no one who is alive to the dangerous power which the posses sion of wealth places in the hands of any-man who is capable of making an unscrupulous use of it, and who believes that money can purchase anybody as well as anything-will demur to the appropriate severity of the sentence which the Chief Justice has pronounced upon the two men who have been con victed of embracery. The offence is one of which it would be difficult to ex aggerate the' heinousness; and the punishment which has been meted out tothe icunlrits is imperatively called foi as ia deterrent, under the painful and perilous circumstances in which the:co rmunity finds itselfplaced. For, unfortdnately, there is too much reason to believe-that the crime -of DAvIm HENRY and WILLIAM IRELAND is not an abnormal phenomenon, buta frequent practice.-. The easy unconcern with which it was engaged in, and the ab sence of any particular pre...

MODERN CRUELTIES. [SOCIAL NOTES.] [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 23 November 1878

MODERN ORUELTIES. [soczAL NrTEs. CRUELTY is by no means a thing of the past. The historian of the nine teenth century will have to relate much that will shock the feelings of the more enlightened people of the century to come. The police news of any day's paper reveal a distressing state of crime and vice. The streets at night are crowded with drunken people reeling home. In the lowest parts of London and of the great provincial towns men brutally ill-treat their helpless wives, who in turn savagely assault their defenceless children. Degrading and cruel punishments are still in force in our gaols, and are defended by most of the upper and middle classes who wish to be considered sensible. Thousands of.unfortunate and miserable women nightly pursue their wretched trade in the streets, unpitied and uncared to0. Nor'is cruelty and oppression confined to'the poor and ignorant. Domestic journals of a wide circulation strongly urge that it is impossible to train young children to be hone...

Oh! what recollections, what loving retro spections Of meetings-heart and heart-old meet iogs, We need to have on Christmas tides, the Christmas tides of yore. Those unison's of hearts which can pulsate nevermore Till Heaven bring re-unions, then purified communions Shall be for evermore. But never, never ceasing, ever on increas ing, Is my want to know, what you know who've reached that other shore; Ye have left me, longing after, that mystical hereafter We so often used to talk about, in our gatherings of yore Used to wonder on, and ponder on, When we met of yore.

PATIENCE. (FAMILY HFBALD.) A qUAINT low-ceiled room, with a narrow window looking on .t' a garden -a girl sewing by candleli,. r, with a group of bright-haired children round her, listening to a fairy tale-the bright curtains pushed back-the casements open to let in the sweetness of the flowers. Outside, a narrow strip of grass bordered by a laurel edge-a wicket-gate with mountain-ash droop ing over it, bright and scarlet berries in the shadow of a man leaning, watching the sweet household picture within. Presently a step sounded down the dark road, and the watcher, with a lingering look, turned away-but not towards the town, the lights of which twinkled in the valley., A narrow foot path through a corn-field led him to a wall with a brown door in it. The door had a brass plate, on which was engraved, with many flourishes, " Dr. Hall," and a ponderous mysterious latch, which yielded to his touch, the door flying open on to a garden heavy with perfume. A path winding through beds of ...
