CHAPTER XXXIX. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 4 March 1876

CHAPTER XXXIX. IN a short time the wanderers had dis mounted,' and having secured their horses from straying, were seated at 'the foot of the princely gum tree, the enormous trunk of which rose a 'hun dred feet or more .liimbless, and then threw out its wide canopy of spreading branches, overshadowing a broad area of ground below. "Confess now, Challoner," said Frances Bracy, as they lingered over the temperate meal with .which their provision baskets had been stored; "confess, 'Mercy, that in all your boasted States you have never met with a scene superior in loveliness to this." "You would not make us recreant to our own dear country, my little Australian," her companion answered, with a smile. " But without venturing upon comparisons, I can afford to ad mire, to your heart's content, all that is admirable to you, here or elsewhero, in this broad land. Will that content you?" "I suppose it must; though it is not saying much, after all. You speak with reserve, too: tell me what the...

CRICKET. SKETCHES BY PRYING PETER. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 4 March 1876

CRICKET. SKETCHES BY PRYING PET?I?. " Cnrudo they are I grant you, A sort of unlidkod, iucondito things." CAne. LAMB. The nineteenth match for the Colling wood Challenge Cup was commenced on Saturday last, by the meeting of the Caji ulot-holders of the Cup--and the Yarra Yarra. To judge from the play exhibited, this match will prove a more closely con tested game than the match by which the Capulet took the Cup'from the Collingwood. The Capulot went to the wickets about twenty minutes past three, and were not disposed of till twenty minutes past five, and during these two hours, the Yarra Yarra had the pleasure of showing their agility in hunting the loather, which trav elled about in a most remarkable manner, for at the fall of the last wicket, the Cap ulet had put together 139, the largest score yet made in any Cup match. G. Whiteoak made highest score for the Capulet, having run up 30, when he was given out, stumped by Grey. This decision I consider to be a most unfair one, for w...

THE FLUTE-PLAYER. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 4 March 1876

THE FL UTE-PLA 'ER. HAnRY bore this exceedingly well; for the love of his wife came to the aid of his naturally good temper. He locked up the flute. But he was disappointed in expecting Martha would offer him any substitute for his favorite amuse ment after his hours of labor. Her notions were those ofrigidand unsparing industry. She was never tired of.her domestic occupations, and she could not understand how a man who had his living to get could ever tire in the pursuit of his calling. When the hour of work was over, Harry sat down in his little parlor-but his wife was seldom with him. It was true that the boards of his house were cleaner than the floor of any of his neighbors; that the saucepans of his kitchen shone with a brightness which all the good house wives of the parish envied; and that not a cinder deformed the neatness of his hearth without calling forth the brush and the shovel for its instant removal. But then it was also true that he some times. caught cold at his di...

AP.PARITIONSV. DR. FOWLEn, bishop of Gloucester, in the early part of the eighteenth century,i was a believer in apparitions. The following, conversation of the bishop with Judge Powell is recorded:- "Since I saw you,"' said the lawyer, "I have had ocular demonstration of the existence of nocturnal appari tions." "I am glad you have become a con vert to truth; but do you say ocular demonstration? Let tie know the particulars of the story." "My lord, I will..

"Of a blue color no doubt." "The light was of a pale blue, my lord, and followed' by a tall meagre personage, his locks hoary with 'ago, and clothed in a long ...

IN ALEXANDRIA. (ATLANTIC MONTHLY.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 4 March 1876

IN ALEXANDRIA. (ATLANTIC MONTHLY.) IN the first five minutes of his 'stay in Egypt the traveller learns that he is to trust and be served by people who have not the least idea that lying is not a perfectly legitimate means of attaining any desired end. And he begins to lose any prejudice he may have in favor ,of a white complexion and of clothes. In a decent climate he sees how little clothing is needed for comfort, and how much artificial nations are accustomed :to put on from false modesty. We begin to thread our way. through a maze of shipping, and hundreds of small boats and barges; the scene is !gay aid exciting beyond expression. The first sight of the colored, pictured, lounging, waiting Orient is enough to drive an impressionable person wild; so much that is novel and picturesque is crowded into a few minutes; so many colors and flying robes, such a display of bare legs and swarthy figures. We meet flat.boats-coming down the harbor loaded with .laborers, dark, immobile 'grou...

OUR NATIONAL BREAKFAST. (NATIONAL FOOD AND FUEL REFORMER.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 11 March 1876

O UR NA TIONAL BREAKFAlST; (NATIONAL FOOD.AND FUEL 1EFORMER.) IT is with diflldence, after all, that we approach this subject, for our ideas may be of so revolutionary a character that it may terrify some people to have to go out of their usual routine. In former times,` when strong exercise was fre quently the rule of the day in *the morning, a good substantial meal could be digested, and ale was quaffed freely for breakfast. Now we are only allowed in our large towns, so many feet of space to one person, and are kept within a certain radius, like the wild beasts in a menagerie-tamed down and weakly. We talk fine about muscle and nerve, but we are losing both, and instead, are becoming an. artificial combination of superior wisdom, able to control the latent powers of nature, but incapable of maintaining our own bodly con struction in a healthy condition: Like sheep we congregate together, holding by each other, and losing more and more all sign of Individual strength.

CHAPTER XL, WE take up dnother thread of our story, and request our readers to accompany us once more to the hostelry which we have before introduced into these pages under the denomination of Parker's Inn. It was about an hour before noon, and on the same day as that to which our immediately foregoing chapters relate, that Frank Layton rode up to the inn, and, securing his horse, entered, to find himself face to face with Mr. Bracy's Irish hut-keeper. "You here, Larry!" exclaimed Layton, in much surprise; "nothing going wrong at Hunter's Creek Station, I hope?" "Not a morsel of it, misther Layton; only the masther sint me here yesther day, and, sis he, 'You're to wait till the overseer '-that's you, sir-' comes to the fore, and thin you're to follow his directions,' " "Directions about what, Larry?"

HORRIBLE STORY OF DRINK AND DEATH. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 11 March 1876

HORRIBLE STORY OF DRINK AND DEATH. We are. indebted: (says. the Brisbane, Courier) to a perfectly reliable corres-, pondent in the Warrego district for the following narrative of this disgraceful and horrible affair :-Albert Green, James Wilson, James Larkins, Louis Schmidt; and William Nolan are the names of five misguided men who met together at Burenda township to cele brate Christmas in the usual style. They were described as all being "con tinually muddled up in drink," and "the worse of liquor." These men used to'have a " go in " at the public house, and then would take bottles of grog to a Chinaman's humpy close by the same, wherein Charley Ah Soo chopped up his two countrymen with a tomahawk last July twelve months. On the morning of New Year's Day, about eight o'clock, the five men already named started from the township on foot, carrying their swags, and taking with them a small canvas bag and two billies of water and a bottle of grog. They had with them five dogs, intend ...

NAMELESS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 11 March 1876

NAMBLESBB. THERE is a name so sweet, so dear, That I could never write it hero, Where careless eyes perchance might see. The name is a loved one gave to me;. A little name, one simple word, Soft as the twitter of a bird, Brooding above her tiny nest; But, oh! it is the dearest, best; And softly I'll that name repeat Until my heart shall ceoaseto beat! There is a little, plaintive song, My heart repeats the whole day long; I heard it once at day's decline, Low breath'd by lips close pressed to mine. I would not that a careless ear Should catch the song I love to hear; So my heart's throbbings come and go As to myself I breathe it low; Sonl-music holy, glad and deep, Within my heart of hearts I keep. There is a heat so warm and true, And eyes of pure and tender hue; I know full well I need not fear What fate may bring, if they are near. Oh! fond, true faith, on which I rest, And own myself so richly blest! Oh I faithful friend, for whom I yearn, And count the hours till they return; T...
