FRANK LAYTON. (AN AUBTRAAI N STORY.) BY. G. E. SARGEANT. (PFIOM "LEIBUnII nOUB.") "You forgetthe interest," said Effiug ham, gravely. "Five years, twelve per cent., .you know, the regular colonial rate, to say nothing of risk, which would carry it up to twenty at least, and compound, interest too. You are a poor usurer, Mr. Layton." " Never.mind," said Frank, laughing; "I don't profess to be a money-lender, and am satisfied with getting back the principal." "'Which 'you thought admitted of some doubt? Well, 1 confess, the odds were against you; but come, this is not fair; you must'allow me to dictate my own terms now.

DEATH OF THE HON. J. F SULLIVAN. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 5 February 1876

DEATH OF THE HON. J. F' SULLIVAN.   It was currently reported throughout Collingwood on Wednesday afternoon that the Hon. J. F. Sullivan had passed away. The news caused considerable excitement in political circles. The information was not correct-certainly he was in a very precarious condition, and his medical, advisers had given up all hope of his re- covery. But on Thursday afternoon about two o'clock he passed away. We give a short account abridged from the Argus of the Hon. gentleman's career. Mr. Sullivan, who was 58 years old at the time of his death, was born at Waterford, Ireland, and at 14 years of age left there, and went to Liverpool, where he was en- gaged in business. From Liverpool he emigrated to the United States of America, where he was occupied successively in the lumber, boating, and planting trades. Afterwards he studied law, and for a time practised in that profession, but when the war between Mexico and the United States was commenced he joined on...

CRICKET. SKETCHES BY PRYING PETER. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 12 February 1876

Mr. Samuel, Cosstick;ie reported to-harv said that a game of cricket was never woit till -it was lost. We might apply this axiom, if we may be permitted to call it such, to Collingwood cricket, for though the Capulet are so far ahead, and the betting so largely in favour of them, there is yet another innings to play, and in that in nings the Collingwood may throw aside the easy, in fact almost loose play, which"they considered good. enough for the Capulet in the first 'innings, but, as the scores show, they counted without their host, at least without the Whiteoak's, more especially the senior player G. Whiteoak, who will undoubtedly, win the match for the Capiilet, if the Collingwood are not on ,the alert. One occurrence which I feel compelled 'to refer to, is the disgraceful condii'; of certain persons on the 'cricket ground.. A...

POETRY. THE MAGPIE'S NEST. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 12 February 1876

POETRY. THILE AGPIE'S NEST. 'TwAs spring time, and nature in bright ness was clad, And erst, while fresh scones made the grief stricken glad: The mountains in grandeur-above towered high, 1 With their peaks out of sight, as they pierced the blue sky. The reed.birds were piping songs, cheery and shrill; The grasshoppers antickod and capered at will; The bush flowers and trees all in rich hues were drest, And the spot in its lustre was verily blest. The locusts were humming their trumpet like song; The wind played soft music the "she oaks" among; The troop of gay laughers,* perched yonder on high, Whose wild concert echoed e'en beyond far and nigh. A magpie sat up in an old "rodgum tree," For happy, contented,' and lively was she; And quickly, indeed, she had built a snug nest, Wherein with her young brood she in safety might rest. Her mate, "an old soldier," o'er guarded the home: From his spouse and young ones he no'er far would roam; A bird of importancel none dare venture near, El...

*OCORDIALS, WINE, d4 ALCO HOL: THEIR USE 4 ABUSE.

"But where'shall wisdom be found; and 'where is the place.of understanding?" :," Behold, the fear of the Lord--that is wisdom; and to depart from evil, is under standing." Obedience or disobedience to canoni eal'or moral laws, (as a rule) sooner or later, insures health; peace, and longe vity in the one ..case, and disease, agony, and premature' death- upon the other; twain results, the corporeal, and psychical, being natural reflexes, or mutual reactions, as already proved: twin elements, :importing. pleasure or pain, joy or sorrow, smiles or tears, the which in very sooth sum up the Wihole chapter of each human life!

MARRIAGE FESTIVAL OF GREEKS IN ASIA MINOR. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 12 February 1876

MARRIAGE FESTIVAL OF GREEKB IN ASIA MINOR. But to return to the marriage at Boudja-what most struck me was the automaton-like passiveness' of the bride, who was young, handsome, and naturally lively. But there she sat in the midst of all the dancing, music, merriment, and gossip, close in the corner, like a statue in its niche, without motion, without giving a sign that the busy noisy scene before her reached either of her senses. And during three mortal days (for so long is the marriage festival kept up) was she to persist in this unnatural forced position of stupid decorum, amidst the joyfulness of those who were called together only to celebrate her own happiness I This forced delicacy and decorum, and sub-, missiveness on the part of the young bride, must have been mainly borrowed by the Asiatic Greeks from their masters the Turks. In the evening, about an hour after the candles had been lighted, the wed ding repast was served up. This, in truth, was frugal enough: it consisted ...

A SUNDAY MORNING WITH HENRY WARD BEECHER. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 12 February 1876

A SUNDAY MORNING WITHI HENRY WIARD BEOIIElt. INSEPARABLE and I were on the ferry boat Fulton, plying between New York and Brooklyn, which we had determined this lovely Sunday to visit and heoar the noted Beecher, as beingthe most novel sensation procurable at the time. Brooklyn is about the same distance from New York as St. Kilda is from the Town Hall hero, only of much easier access. It truly merits the name given it as the " City of Churches," for as we cross the rapidly flowing East river, countless spires glisten in the sun, whilst peal upon peal of sweet chimes make the air resound with glad music. Thore seems to have been an erection of ex pensive churches entirely out of all proportion to the size of the city, and it is not difficult to understand why there is so much truth in the report concerning the bankruptcy of many of those temples dovoted to God and Fashion; they wore built to "di'aw," but owing to high pow rents and the failure of the ministers to attract by sensatio...

TEA AND TEA-DRINKERS. (NATIONAL FOOD AND FUEL REFORMER.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 12 February 1876

TEA AND TEA-DRINKERS. (NATIONAL FOODAND FUEL REFORMER.) It is on women-on the mothers of our ace--that the evil effects of tea.drink ing fall with the greatest weight. How many women, who think they cannot ".got along" a single day without too, owe to it their cold feet and hand?, their liability to frequent colds, their peculiar difficulties, especially their weakening ones, and their habitual loss of appetite, rendering them a prey to "dinner-pills," or the absurdities termed "strengthening medicines," so long in vogue. No wonder that tea-drinkers are' so frequently small caters; when their tea has gradually destroyed their appotitel But perhaps the worst use to which tea is applied by women is the practice of drinking copiously of strong tea during pregnancy, with the idea that it will render their milk abundant. A most unfounded, absurd, and disastrous practice. It is alike injurious to the mother and her off spring; and it may originate the hereditary diseases of successive gen...
