MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 18 January 1879

MISCELLANEOUS. The Bishop of Carlisle. at thelate Church Congress, in speaking of the "Church's WVork" and the absolute necessity of pas toral visitation, said a clergyman's most useful curate was "a good stout pony," Sillustrating his speech by a story of a miner 'wh recognized this want by sending his clergyman a pony and cart. His Lordship was followed by the Bishop of Sodor and ,fan, when some one suggested to him an addition to the pony proposition, which was. ""to buy a bicycle a-piece." "But," said his Lordsthi "it won't go up hill." This is questioned by a correspondent, who recommends the incumbents to "try it;" and he ventures to say they will have better health after than they have when sitting at home all day in cassock and alippers to receive visitors. As "head of the Episcopal department" in Collingwood, let the Rev. Mr. Caton be supplied by his people with one, and started on a trial trip to his far-distant parishioners. The "parson's horse" at home is well known; and...

NOTES AND COMMENTS [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 18 January 1879

NOTES AND COMMENTS.   BY COSMOPOLITE. Surely somebody has been trying t get at the Argus during the last few weeks, and I have at various times .commented upon the discrepancies published in that paper ; the latest "have" to which the Argus has fallen a victim is a description of Portarling ton which appeared in last Monday's issue.'furnished to, I presume, by the proprietors of one or other of the pleasure steamers that run to that place. After dwelling on the beauties of the scenery, shelving beach, commodious pier, &c., the paragraph goes on to speak of the beautiful park with a handsome round house in the centre, and various other et cetras ; altogether making a prettypicture-inprint. Now, I happened to be on a visit to that place a few days ago, on business, and while there rambled about for an hour or so to see if there were any chance of picking up a paragraph that might amuse the readers of the Mlercury, and though I did see the shelving beach and commod...

A TRIFLE TOO CROWDED. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 25 January 1879

A TRIFLE TOO 'CROWDED. A BELATED and rather a povert'y stricken foot-traveller, whose railway ticket was good on all country roads and cattle paths,. stopped at a small mansion of apparently four rooms and a kitchen in the South Hill suburbs, the other evening, to'.beg a -night's lodging. A-,he-stood4imidly'knocking at the 1.-,lf-opened door, he heard the shrill ccuumanding tones-of the lady of the house disposing thegarrison for the night. "Tommy, go hunt up .Charley and Ben, and tell them to .go to the grocery and tell your father to bring Ella and Willie right home; its their bedtime; and if they see Louise on the way, send her to Miss Crozier's for Alice and Jim, and see if they know where Ezra is; you take this lamp up to grandma's room, and -ask her if she won't take care of the baby, while I go and find Dick, and while I am gone you undress Mabel and put her to bed, and if Cousin Harry comes while I am gone, tell him he's to sleep with you."

SOURCE OF PERSONAL BEAUTY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 25 January 1879

SOURCE OF PERSONAL BEAUTY. A BEATIFUL person is the natural form of a beautiful soul. The mind builds its own house. The soul takes precedence of the body, and shapes the body to its own likeness. A vacant mind takes all the meaning out of the fairest face. A sensual disposition de forms the handsomest features. A cold, selfish heart shrivels and distorts the best looks. A mean, grovelling spirit takes all the dignity out of the figure, and all the character out of the conn tenance. A cherished hatred transforms the most beautiful lineaments into an image of ugliness. It is as impossible to preserve good looks with a brood of bad passions feeding on the blood, a set of low loves tramping through the heart, and a selfish, disdainful spirit enthroned in the will, as to preserve the beauty of an elegant mansion with a litter of swine in the basement, a tribe of gipsies in the parlor, and owls and vultures in the upper part. Bad ness and beauty will no more keep company a great while th...

FRENCH CRIMINALS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 25 January 1879

FRENCH CRIMINALS. A DeUBLE execution in Paris (says the Globe) has called forth in two or three quarters, remarks on the difference be tween the ideas prevailing in France andEngland as to the treatment of cri minals between the periods of sentences and execution. Here in England, the brief interval is regarded as affording a peculiarly appropriate opening for the ministration of prison chaplains and others able to exert a moral influence on the condemned. The culprit is in formed of the day appointed for his exe cution, as soon as it is decided on, and while the sentence stands unmitigated it would generally be thought cruel to encourage hope of mercy. In France, it appears, all this is reversed. The criminal is kept in ignorance of the date appointed for his execution, which he is encouraged in every way to hope may never be carried out. He spends the time in company with other criminals and with warders, who permit him to smoke and play cards, and encourage him to amuse himself i...

COMING EVENTS; OR, SIGNS OF THE TIMES. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 25 January 1879

COMVING EVENTS; OR, SIGNS OF THE TIMES. - BY Por pmoa HALL. ALTHOUGH. the Russo-Turkish war has cessed`to agitate the nations as a sanguinary conflict, those who idly dream that the solution'of the difficulty is merged in the treaty of Berlin do greatly err, not knowing that God is in prophecy its inspiration, and in his tory its actor. And whilst reviewing this subject, we must lay aside fanatic ism and prejudice; for however much we :differ in the details of many of those great themes which constitute the burdenlof prophetic records, we must not shut our eyes -to every-day facts, and their. application to the times we live in. It will be remembered by those who have read my pamphlet, "The Signs of the Times," that I published in April last, therein I draw special attention to the pouring out of the sixth vial. "And the sixth Angel poured out his vial upon the great River Euphrates, and the waters thereof were dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be pre pared."--Re...

CHINESE QUESTION. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 25 January 1879

CHINESE QUESTION. We have received from the publisher, F. F. Bailliere, a pamphlet entitled "The Chinese Question," edited by Kong Meng, Cheok Hong Cheong, and Louis Ah Mony. A notice on the wrapper of the pamphlet asks the reader to use his endeavors "to give as mnch publicity as possible to their statement as to the primary cause of the immigration of Chinese subjects into these colonies, and as to their perfect right to settle in any part of the British Empire." 'The pamphlet starts by asking the citizens of Victoria not' to violate thelaw of nations, Zor to break the treaty engagements be tween Great Britain and China. It points out thait by the treaty entered into between the English and French in 1860, a second treaty was made at Pekin, "which guaran teed to the people of both nations the utmostfreedom of ingress and egress, and which reciprocally bestowed upon the Chinese a similar freedom as regards the territories of France and the British Em pire." The editors state that t...

CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 25 January 1879

CORRESPONDENCE. TO THE EDITOR OF THE ERCUIr. Sr.-I perceive in your issue of Saturday last, a somewhat lengthy review of my pamphlet entitled Modern Spiritism. After perusing the same, I have no hesitation in pronouncing the writer an adept at gulli bility. It is quite evident that the subject is far in advance of his comprehension, or he would never have made so many un founded charges. I would advise him, in future, to give heed to the old adage children and fools should never play with edged tools. I do unn wonder at his being ashamed to attach his name to such un founded rubbish.. I would advise him in fnture to consult the truth, before he prefers charges that he cannot prove, and were it not for truth's sake I could have afforded to treat him with the contempt that he merits, although Solomon says, "Answer a fool according to his folly lest he be wise in his own conceit." He first says that the subject is a rather comprehensive one for a pamphlet of nineteen pages, and immedia...
