ENGLAND'S DESTINY AND GLORY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 27 February 1875

. ENGLAND'S -DESTINY AND: GLORY. It has often been "a question with historians and ihotightful men, " What will England's history and destiny be?" Will her glory also pass away? Will the rod of her power be broken? Will the course of empire flow to the west or to the east, or north or south, any where away from her shores? -Different answers have been ventured, according to the,views or the predilections of the individual. Some, with a blind and thoughtless. partiality, have rejected the very idea of waning glory and decaying power for her. Others have thought that it is of the substance of God's plan for the whole world to change his instruments in successive parts of the progress, in order that no race or people should glory in his presence. But this, *too, is a problem far too vast and com plicated for our handling. God will answer the question in 'his providence when the time shall come. He will answer it actually by the conflicts of the nations, and by the voices of the ages. M...

If the body's death seems to teach the lesson, that modesty is becoming to the scientific speculator, what shall we say'as to the prospects of that material frame which' is beyond ourselves-the general ordei'ly frame of the universe as 'we see it around us ? People would suppose, from thle way in which you ;hear me. talk :ow, that there was not the slightest' chance of, any great organic changeover coming across the outward world.in which 'wo live. No doubt Gpd 'works by fixed laws. No doubt the world goes on morning and evening, and summer and winter; but what.reason have you to suppose that it will so go on to infinity? Have no great catastrophes befidlen the world before now ? Does ndt physical scienceitself speak of these catastrophes? What is there to prevent other catastrophes; produced by the opera tion' of laws of which at present we are very ignorant, .Coming athwart the globe. on which we live, and a complete change thking place in the relations i...

0 a A RACE FOR LIFE. Be the Author of " Danosbury, House." CHAPTER III.-(Continued.) , What noise was that? It was like thing earthly-a low groaning sound, If'wail, half howl. Pere Carine ecked his mare to listen, but the imal raised her ears, and trembled sibly. "It must have., been the wind sigh 1t gin the forest," cried he; " it does ke a doleful noise at times. But it's still night. Belotte, old girl, what 8 you?" lHe gently shook the reins and urged mare on. It was a plain he was veiling on, not a road;, more like a et of waste land, wild, bare, and very frequented. As his eyes ranged r it-so white with its lying snow 'the moonlight-he thought of the t dreary plains where travellers lost ir way in the pathless waste, and er found it again. 'Cheer up, my Belotte; no fear of yes coming here to disturb us," ghed he; "' the villains lie in wait in re travel-beaten roads. This one s not see a passenger for a week ether.

The Bishop selected his text from the 21st 'chapter. of St. Luke and 83rd verse, "Heaven and earth shall pass,away, but 'My ;Word shill riot pass away," He;bseivod thatthe'words of the text were highly figurative ofsome physical and moral catastrophe which would taike place at home period in the world's history. If neither' men nor angels knew it was of io possible use for them to speculate as to the day or the hour, But at the same time, said he, there were some underlying truths in connec tion with these words. First, that there was a fore-determined God of this state of things, and that there was a world to come. He believed that even physical science believed In that dis solution of the dlomuents of the physical world; from natural causes is recog...

One of its members, Mr. Lonnon, of the Bank of Australasia, has been removed to Creawiok, and the date fixed for the regattas is so near that there is no time to get another man into proper condition to take his place. Mr. Lennon's departure will also tell very. much against the.chance .of the Goelong crew in ti, Banks' ChaUerge Cup Race, to be rowed, we believe, in May next, on the Barwon The local banks at present hold the tro hy for this race, their representatives having won the firsteace for it at Ballarat last year.

SATURDAY, FEB. 27, 1875. TRAIL OF THE OPHIDIAN. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 27 February 1875

SATURDAY, FEB. 27, 1875. TRAIL OF TI-HE OPHIDIAN, SIIERIDAN, in his comedy of " The Rivals," makes the fbotman, when complained of by his master, to gratify his revenge, kick the page; and the capricious conduct of the footman pro vides us with an indication of the austero proclivities of socioty, although it appears to be a generally admitted axiom that men do, in their corporate capacity, things which as individuals they would be, ashamed of having a hand in. The fiet is, that the whole system of our social ethics Is incon. gruous and ptaradoxical, fbr we tolerate an evil, and yet dleery It as a nisance, while we wle wlllly close our cars and eyes to the truth, thlt wherever the law is known to be inoperative for suppression it becomes obviously necessary to alter it. Mr. Carlyle has said that man is a forked radish, with a head fantastically carved. Well! suppose such to be the case, we submit that it does not inevitably follow that the cradle of infancy is the cradle of genius.....
