NOTES AND COMMENTS. 3/1/79. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 4 January 1879

'OTES AND COMMENTS. L? Br CosxopozLrrz . , 311179. So people are often talking th ee er country, while others, on the contrary are always urging the benefits to be derived from maintaing the connection with the British flag. Be that as it may. the contingency is so very remote that it is not worthwhile discnssing seriously whether we ought to be independent or whether we continue to form an integral portion of the great British Empire; yet. we certainly think, if separation ever does take place it will bq pore from the English people treat ing un'as foreigners than from any fault of our owid.'We never say that London is in France. or t1 Wales is a part of Scotland, -or any oth f spch ridiculous nonsense, yet we r~idde siie kind of ignorant rubbish aa t the colony in the newspapers re sedfrom England by nearly every mail headdresses of official letters even display e same kind of cool, insolent ignorance, ad it is nothing else. If we were a de ~ency of Patagonia, or any other com ' e...

A STORY OF NICARAGUA. (Concluded from our last). [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 4 January 1879

A STORY OF NICARAGUA. (Concluded from our last). " We travelled two miles in forests so high and so thick that the moon beams could hardly reach our path. A spangle of light filtered through them, scarce bigger than a glowworm's lamp where it drooped. By the glimmer reflected from above, we followed Sal vador, who crept cautiously along. Miguele came last. As we went duskily, stealing from turn to turn of the path, I knew what it was to be a robber and assassin. Camarades, the sensation is not agreeable. " Suddenly Salvador came to a halt. 'The temple is there!' muttered Miguele behind me, and we crept into the bush whilst Salvador reconnoitred. He returned presently, and took Person by the arm, whispering-we followed. Before us, hidden among trees that met above its roof, stood a low, dark build ing of logs on a mound. I could see little of its size and shape, for all was dim; a red glow shone betwixt the timbers, as of a mouldering fire inside; a sickly smell hung on the air. " We...

AN HOUR AT THE CENTRAL STATION COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 4 January 1879

AN HOUR AT THE CENTRAL STATION COURT. UNDER the influence of the present alternate cold and hot streaks of weather Bijah's farm is reaching up for the top shelf. The catnip patch now embraces fifteen large stalks, and there is every. hope that there will be enough horse radish drafts to supply all local demands. The beans are climbing to the sky, The 'taters bigger grow; The onions weep the hours away, The squashes come on slow. The only drawback, and the only fear for the future, is the fact the midnight cat imagines that the farm was laid out and improved for his special benefit. When the shadows fall he descends from the housetop and goes galloping over the growing vegetables or swings from the hollyhocks in wild disorder, and traces of his reckless work are to be found every morning. The Lime-Kiln Club has partly consented to loan Bijah its bear trap for a week or so, and if this article meets the eye of any maraud ing cat let him be warned ere it is too late. IT DOES NOT PAT.

LIFE, DEATH, AND HEAVEN. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 4 January 1879

.IFE, DEATH, Ai HEAVEN. Oh! what is life. A fleeting dream, A bubble on a running stream, A rugged journey to the grave; Teeming with joy and pride to-day To-morrow but a lump of clay; A moment of care, of joy, and strife; A path to Death. Oh! that is life. And what is Death ? A time of rest, To the weary and the oppressed; A short sleep to mankind given Before the soul is judged for Heaven; A call from God, a dreadf q anie, Treating both rich and por~e same. A visitor at life's last breaw. Bringing sorrow. Oh! such is Death. And what is HeaversP A world.of bliss, - Where Christians go.when called from this; Where weary souls shall find repose, And shadows ne'er aroundthem close The hoie of `saints, our S~air?d's throne, .Where Death and Sorrow are unknown.

COFFEE PUBLIC HOUSES. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 4 January 1879

COFFEE PUBLIC 1RO USES. THE coffee public houses now spring ing up all over London, by combining the advantages of a tavern with those of a coffee-house, fill aplace long vacant in our national system of refreshment. It is true that there have been places for the sale of coffee in London ever since the introduction of that beverage ; but, for some unexplained reason, the coffee-house proper has drifted almost out of existence. Fashionable coffee houses, once the resort of gentlemen of wit and fashion upon town, have de veloped into clubs, while those of humbler. pretension have for the most part grown stuffier and dingier with each7shcceeding year. The English workman has never taken kindly to the old-fashioned coffee-shops, which have stood still while public-houses have entirely changed their appearance. It requires some industry now to find, in London, at least, a genuine old public h use with its red curtain, sanded floor, lPow ceiIing.: The Old White Horse SDrug has been dresse...

"Purceed-purceed, my friend," was the cheerful answer. "I have had a dispute with my wife as to the proper time to plant; root beer," continued the man. " She says it ought to be planted in April, and I say not till June. What do you say ?" "Hem-hem-yem," coughed Bijali as he rose up and walked around the room.

THE LOST EXPLORERS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 4 January 1879

THE LOST EXPLORERS. -0------- There appears to be now no room to doubt that Messrs. Faril and Woolley, who were exploring the country north of Encla, in the far west of South Australia, have been added to the list of those who have lost their lives in such enterprises. The waterless sterile country over which they travelled has proved too much for the strength and endurance of themselves and their ani mals, and they have apparently, at last, wandered about on foot until they have fallen exhausted not to rise again. The following telegram, sent by Mr. J. Clarke from Encla, which was received frot oeurown correspondent at Adelaide jla te *ight, gives full particulars of whbat hs been discovered by Messrs. ,)Jiiid Dorry, who, with the aid of 'ir Thos.

A CRAZY MAN'S QUEER FREAK. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 4 January 1879

A CRAZY MAN'S QUEER   FREAK.   A character known as the "crazy Englishman" recently died at Leaven- worth, Ks. He seems to have been a reckless, prodigal, ne'er-do-well, and one who was most of the time on a big spree. The following is an account of one of his "larks" when pretty well fuddled: One night while disordered fancy was holding high revel in his brain, he hired a hearse and coffin and several mourn ing carriages and proceeded to have a funeral all by himself. He placed the coffin inside the hearse, got into the coffin, attended by a bottle of whisky, and, with the hired carriages following, the solemn procession took its course through the principal streets of the city just as the mantle of night was being drawn about the tired metropolis. No one in particular noticed the cortege as it wound its way through the crowd of carriages and buggies laden with pleasure seekers, merely remarking, perhaps, that it was queer time of the day for such an obser...

A NATIONAL BANK OF ISSUE. REPLY TO MR. R. M. SMITH AND THE "BANKING RECORD." [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 11 January 1879

A NATIONAL BANK OF BISSUE. BRPLT TO MB. B. M.L SrrE AND T!a "BANKING BsCOED." It appears at first sight, to say the least, somewhat strange that with two such publications as the Melbourne Review and the Insurance and Banking Record that it should beimpossible to discuss the question of a National Bank except by a resort to the columns of a newspaper. A ready solution of the apparent anomaly is furnished however, when we remember that on the Committee of Management of theReview there are two Bank Managers ; and that the Record is, as its name indicates, devoted to the interests of our present Banking institutions. As the establishment of a National Bank would limit the power and influence, to say nothing of the profits of those now exist ing, it is natural that their managers should endeavaur to stop a discussion which might tend to bring about such a result. Of the two articles which follow, the first was written for the Reviewt in reply to Mr. Murray Smith's article in its October...
