To the Editor of The Herald SIR-The following extract from a celebrated and gifted writer is, I presume worthy of insertion in your useful paper -and will not occupy much space: - JUSTITIA &nbsp; "-Many politicians of our time are in the habit of laying it down as a sel fevidelt pro position, that no people ought to be free till they are fit to use their freedom, The maxim not to go into the water till he had learnt to swim. If men are to wait for liberty till they become wise and good in slavery they may indeed wait for ever." " -' . .....? ::.A ,: .:_ .L . .
THE WORKMAN'S TRAIN. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 9 May 1868
THE WORKMAN'S TRAI N. A shilling a week, and to arid fro Daily from home to work we go; Daily from work to home again, Twopence a day costs" The workman's Train" What does that twopence provide, beside. A cosy seat and a speedy ride? A healthy home in the fine fresh air, , Both lives and limbs we save by the fare. What do we get by that shilling a week ? Roses to grow on our children's cheek; The chance of a lodging with comfort in, From twopennorth of rail not twopennorth of gin. What will that twopence a day repay ? Why, hundreds per cent. in every way; Adding millions a year to the nation's wealth, In the best of all forms-in its workmen's health.
THE STORY-TELLER. PASSION-FLOWERS. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 9 May 1868
THE STORY-TELLER. PASSION-FLOWEIRS. OHAPTER I. She had been very ill, aud now she lay exhausted, but free from pain, upon her bed, her clear, dark eyes now gazing in quiringly about, and then closing in utter weariness of sight. The pst seemed a ~deam, or rather a reality for ever done with. The months of wearing anxiety, the moments of quick, sharp agony ..which combining their fearful might had '?thus laid her low-they troubled her not, her 'soul was in quietness. She had never b ecn ill before, and it seemed like a great shadowy gate shutting her past life outfrom her. Go back into her olden life she could not; the wide n orld lay before Sher as before a babe. With a child-like w onder she vainly tried to rise, and fell back upon her pillow. It never occurred to her to marvel why she was alone; she had been used to loneliness, and she lay there feeling life gradually come back to her feeble clasp, and resting in the shadow cast by some coming sunshine. The room was largo and bare...
THE JAPANESE ATHLETES. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 9 May 1868
THE JAPANE$E ATHLE TES. The extraordinary company of J~apa nese performers whose entertainment was briefly described in our colimns last week have returned to Mahitciester for a short visit. Their performance largely consists in displays of the art of balancing, and it is interesting to note in how many- differ ei?t and equally attractive ways this art can be illustrated. But their abilities are not confined to this branch of dexterity, for sundry indications suggest that thieyv are also clever at sleight-of-hand, and in such tricks as have been made familiar by our own wizards. The Japanese have chosen .a walk which they have all to tlhemselves, our most nimble trhpezists being only on the borders of it. They ac company their doings with gestures and obeisances, with converse in the courtly tongue of, the Tycoon, and with t~he curious twanging of a kind of banjo, whiclh passes.for music in their, own land. It is well that for English audliences they have engaged the services of a s...

SIR,-- - As advocated by " Chips," the advent of our Colonial Neighbors, together with their .mode of doing business, is daily lessening that distinctioi of" caste " which has hitherto predominated in this Colony. But a very few years ago-it would have been considered great presumption'for any lex member of the bond class (no matter how exem plary his outer life while in this 'Colony might have been) to have attempted to introduee ;him self into any social position. Without any soli citation however on their part, ve find many of them now taking a prominent place, and having a voice in the daily working- of our system either- as Committee men of out Mechanics' In stitutes, as Jurors, as- Ratepayers, or in other ca pacities .where their tried integrityfor a long series of years has proved them worthy of con fidence. . :..
