Ti:', K NJ DITION OF P'IAts FOR DEFENCE. (Fronu the Times.) The ' c? 'itu!a: ina of MhIlabou's army hlavei n.thiibg to oppose the march of the whole Prlrsi.,n forces on Paris. It matters little whethther 1zune is provisioned or not.

ONLY A CLERK. (PORCUPINE) [Newspaper Article] — Kilmore Free Press — 17 November 1870
ONLY A OLERK. (roiorunr) 1 There are clerks and clerks o'erki in holy orders, c elfeki with their hundreds a year, and olfrks with I their tens. The greet mass of o!erka-and it is to these that we are going to refer-receive small lala- a rite. They s.e arouna and about them ama'l shop. IeVpers and rtisians receiving more money, having a e better status, and able to purchase more of the com forts and luxuries of life than they can. Being pro bably hett-r educated, and therefore more sensitive of what appears to them to be a paradox, they become f embittered at the contemplation of their position, and I cry ou', " I wih I had been anything else than a 8 quill driver." Upon toe face of it we can see enough i; reason t'.justify such an exolsmation. To see the d sons of beershop keepers and suoti like men, coarse a in manner, rough in language, with nothing to qualify these and other defects but the possession of money, i olmostrust them out of society altogether. is galling a to intelec...
