THE ANIMAL MAN. (Land and Water.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 6 March 1875

THE ANIMAL MAN. (Land and Water.) No nation has been'so successful as the English in the breeding and care of animals, and no nation probably has, until quite recently, been so careless of the highest animal of all-man. Lately, no doubt, we have done something towards insuring healthy houses and proper food for our population, but we have not even dreamt of securing the far more important condition, namely, that the race shall be continued by none, but healthy parents. :What would be said. of 'a great, cattle-breeder who, should spend 'no end of trouble, and mloney' in providing'the best; of shelter and. food for his stock, but who were to take no trouble as to the selection of the: parents? . Yet this is precisely what'we are content to do in the case of man.' Nay, more, for we are, trying to save from death and to reserve there fore for 'the propagation of the race children whom nature, if left to herself, would have killed off before they came to maturity. Nature provides for the...

THE RISING OF THE NILE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 6 March 1875

THE. RfSING' OF THE NILE. To the annuril phenomenon of the rising 'of the Nile, Egypt is entirely indebted for its fertility, and even for its existence as an inhabited and populous country. Without it'the land would always have' been a desert, in craip!le .ofaffifuding, the . means of sub-. sistence to man. ,Except: occasionally near the shored of the Mediterranean, no rain'falls throughout the land, and tlei'efre . i'ts pairched ain'd sandy ;soil would lie entiiely, unfruitful, were it not that regularly, at a certain season 6f the, year ' the river" overflows the whole adjacent counitry. Why' it. sh'uld do so was 'a, mystery in ancient.. times, and' many, 'absui'dl theories and conjectui'es were raised to' account for it. The Egyptians them selves believed .the river was a god, who in his beneficence spread himself annually over the land, to supply the wants of his people. If the rising did not begin to make its appearance at the expected time-and it has hardly varied a single da...

MISCELLANEOUS NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 6 March 1875

": MISCELLANEOUS NEWS. The Ovens land Murray Advertiser states that some time since a son of Mr. Dubois, of' Beechworth, went to' the newly die. covered goldfield at the Palmer, and has but :recently returned, having, gained ex perience at great cost. His description of the 'hardships through which he passed are extraordinary, as' he says that on one occasion he was so reduced that. he was obliged, and glad; to copy Nebuchad. nezzar's example, and eat grass like an oz. He was frequently for days without food and water:' We have to record the result of another drunken fileak. On Wednesday 'evening at Belfast, whilst Professor Bosco, the ven. triloquist was giving, an entertainment' in the OddfoJlows' Hall, (the largest ,building in Belfast) a drunken man, at the close of the entertainment, sprang upon the plat. form very unceremoniously, and upset ia kerosene lamp, throwing the 'oil .in' the footlights. on, the stage, An. explosion immediately followed., The curtains were instantly i...

CORRESPONDENCE. .We do not' nocessarily anlorso the opinious of our Oorrespondlnts. TO TIlE EDITOR OF TIl SMERCURY. Sir-You are doubtless aware that it is the initention of the Governmenrt to remove the Sandridgo Butta,: in order that the land may be sold. It would cortiinly appear as if they 'weore very short'of money when they can pirjotrato srich an absurdity; for absurdity it undoubtedly is, when we think of the blow the Volunteer force will receive. Should we havoehad such excellent shots if it had not been for the Saudridgeo Butts ? What is the good of a rifleman if he cannot take aimb? I can just fancy how Colonel Pitt would have expressed himself had he been hero; and I will engage to say that if Parliament had boon in session, the Ministry would not have dared to porpoe trate such an act of folly. I would suggest that a public meeting be hold at once, and that a petition be sent to the Ministry protesting against the romoval of the Butts. This hacked by, the Rifle Associlat...

A WONDERFUL WEED. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 6 March 1875

A WONDERFUL ' WEED. Ill weeds proverbially grow apace, and perhaps nothing affords a more striking illustration of this fariiiliar saying than a water-weed known' as,the Anacharis alsinastrum, called also by some botanists the Elodea Canadensis, and known ' inore commonly as the A i'erican ,' .'wator,weed, or '" water thyme." It is found in. ponds,.rivers, or. canals;' and when once it makes its iappearance it spreihds":in "such' 'hfi' extraordinary mannei' a's in i short time to dhtiroly destr;oy thoe eauty: of orna mental water, and even to obstruct the navigation in canals and streams. It floats wholly under water, but at the time of flowering.makes. its, appearance on the surface, its roots being widely spread in the mud atthe bottom. It has the peculiar faculty of being capable 'of .pirop?igatldii' from the smallest ,fragment of itS.' stalk, and' hence' it is a matter, of great difficulty to 'get rid of ,it.'' 'Another peculiarity of the weed is that it' sometimes sud. denly sp...

ADVENTURES OF "YOUNG SKYBLUE." CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 6 March 1875

ADVENTURES OF "YOU?NG SKYBLUE." CHAPTER I. About nineteen or twenty years ago, there stood in a narrow irregular street, in the Bermondsoy district, a little coffee shop, not more than a dozon' cet square, and, divided into eight of the oddest little boxes you ever saw, with a strip of deal board for atable in each, for the accommodation of separate customers. There was a glass door to the shop, which, unless the wind and rain blew in that direction, generally stood 'invitinigly open; and in one of the panes of the glass door ,was'wafered a notice, painfully written and mis spelled, to the effect that clear-starch ing plain needlework were performed within. In the shop-window, which was backed with an old and 'rather rusty .wire.blind, inscribed with the words, "Early Breakfast House," there lay a japan tea-tray loaded with a breakfast service " for one," which was flanked on either side by.. a work of art carved in wood and painted, supposed to represent a couple of pork pies, and ...

SATURDAY, MAR. 6, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 6 March 1875

SATURDAY, MAR. 6, 1875. OF all the questions which have re. cently engaged public attention, and which await legislative action, there is none of more importance' than the question' of' Electorail Reform:." That the present 'unsatisfactory state of things should continue much longer is not to be thought of. On this we believe all parties are agreed. The difficulty however of devising a plan to supersede.it, which shadl be' equally acceptable to. all, is not to be easily surmounted. The first thing, we take it, is to decide upon the basis of oper ations. We may safely assume that all are agreed upon the necessity for a redistribution .of'seats. "The present anomalies aroeso glaring that iGv need not stop to point them out. This being granted, therefore, we come to consider upon what basis shhll this redistribution be made, : There' are three plans which present:: themselves, 'from which, it appears to us, a selection must be made. First, there ;is the population basis, as worked out ...
