The Mercury. PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY, FEB, 16, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 16 February 1878

THE MERCURY PUBLISHED EVEY SATURDAY.   Labor Omnia Vincit.     SATURDAY, FEB 16, 1878. THERE is one aspect of the Eastern   question which, of late years, has not occupied much attention, but is now more apparently coming to the front and claiming that earnest consideration which its importance deserves. We allude to the probable rehabilitation of the old Greek kingdom." The prospect of the Greek taking the place of the Turk; making Constantinople its capi   tal; holding the gates of the East; and thereby allaying much of the jealous   feeling that pervades Europe in refer ence to the settlement of this great difficulty. It is not to the interests of England, Austria, or even Germany that Russia should permanently occupy Stamboul, and become the holders of the mouths of the Danube and the Black Sea. There can be no doubt but the possession of Constantinople by Russia-instead of being one of strength would ...

MR. HENRY VINCENT ON THE WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 16 February 1878

MR. HENRY VINCENT ON THE WAR. TIE lecture was in connDction with the Providence Chapel Mutual Improve ment Society, Rochdale, England. The Lecturer said we were in a time of considerable gravity, when the manufacturing and commercial interests of our country were in no slight jeopardy, when the Continent of Europe was confused by political and other questions, when a great war was raging in the East. when we felt surrounded by complications and difficulties over which at the present moment we could exercise but little mastery; but re membering the power of public opinion, remembering the moral weight of our own country, even when she ceases to intermingle in the complications of other States, he presumed to discuss in ths presence of that meeting some of those complications and difficulties, not wishing to enforce without reason his arguments upon them, but simply standing as an independent man and an independent thinker-one who could conscientionsly say that he had never bowed befo...

KHOUNG-FOU-TSEU AND MENG-TSEU. OR CONFUCIUS AND MENCIUS. SIXTH ARTICLE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 16 February 1878

KHO UNG-FO U-TSEU AND 3MENG-TSEU. OR CONFUCIUS AND IMENCIUS. BY E. A. SAMSON. .SIXTH . ARTICLE. MESG-TSEU was a man of thoroughly independent principles. He was the Roebuck of his age. A thorn, and a sharp one in the sides of the despotism under which he lived. An incor ruptible man, his voice was listened to, and his monitions were productive of the best effects. He never allowed an act of oppression, if it came to his knowledge to pass uncensured. He blamed with the greatest severity un necessary harshness on the part of the rulers. and imperfect obedience on the part ofthe people. ME sr-TsEcevidently had a profound knowledge of the human heart, and he displayed in his writings a subtlety of reasoning on the evils flowing from arbitrary measures, and from the abuse of power by public functionaries that is unsurpassable by our modern writers on the art of go verning. He was a Machiavelli, with out a Machiavelli's casuistical philo sophy. He was a plain and a straight forward, but a...

Itappears that Mr. Smale fired off a charge of dynamite and displaced a large quantity of stones at the bottom of the river. He went down to prepare for lifting these stones by the aid of chains into the punt. While engaged in rolling over a large stone he saw something which he supposed at the time was a piece of clean looking kelp moving about in front of where he was working. In a few seconds this object came in contact with the diver's arm, about which it quickly coiled, partly holding him. Immediately Mr. Snale touched what was coiled round his arm he became aware of his position, and tried to extricate himself from the grasp of a "sea devil," but found it a far more diflicult job than he anticipated.

BUSINESS MORALITY (Sunday at Home.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 23 February 1878

BUSINESS MORALITY (Sunday at Home.) RELIGION bids men be honest, not because honesty is the best policy merely; be truthful, not because lying is unmanly only; be temperate, not because intemperate habits weaken the intellect and impair the vital energy, and, in short, put you outside the pale of society; but be all these from one supreme, absorbing motive, the fear you have of offending a loving God. It will be the thought of God and of Christ which will alone make us Ltue to man; Our religion will not be of that kind which displays deep emotion in the words of our lips, and then goes out to drive very hard bargains, if not to steal. And.what do some men mean by this business morality? Surely not that God allows and winks at some recognised code of signals by which, if one man can over-reach anotuer, it is all fair play. Are the strict command ments of God to be admitted in the church, and an expurgated and revised edition to he hung up in the counting house ? Of many business tran...

BY THE CAMPASPE. A TALE BY ALBERT ELWELL. And as the simple service is performed And as the earth is closed up again Evelena's spirit can no more sustain The weight of woe, and she sinks help lessly Into the manly arms that bear her up And place her where she rests, calm as the sea After a storm hath tossed its troubled breast. She wakes again: and taking in her hands The rough brown hand of his, she murmurs then, "Ah, Gordon, thou art good!-I cannot tell How much I owe thee-thris my heart can say, That ever it will treasure up thy name In loving memory." The hot blood thrilled As to his ears the murmur came, and then He speaks; "I fear thy health-I fear thy life, If in this saddened spot thou still remain. Come then with me, and I will see that nought Is left undone that should be done-that word Shall be despatched for Arthur, and when he Can come again (which he must soon do new) He will o'ertake us, and we three shall be A pleasant company until thy health Restore thee once again...

NOTES AND COMMENTS. Fitzroy, 21/2/78. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 23 February 1878

NOTES AND COMMENTS. BT COSMOPOLITE. Fitzroy, 211 2 78. SOME time ago I drew the attention of your readers to the dangerous projec tions on the footpaths in Collingwood and Fitzroy, and the councils, wisely taking the hint, authorized the removal of them. So far, good ! But now I have so call atteition to a still more dangerous obstruction in Wellington street. I refer to the existence of huge boulders on the side of the road, from Reilly-street upwards. The street has been metalled in the centre, and on the sides between the metal and footpaths is a strip in its unfinished condition; to compel drivers of vehicles to take the centre of the street, the Council's surveyor has placed at intervals the boulders spoken of, without the slight est protection to warn wayfarers of their existence. Now, everyone knows drivers of horses and cattle will always take to the unmetalled part in preference to travelling over the new. On Sunday morning last I chanced to be in the vicinity of said stree...

ARTHUR'S SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 23 February 1878

ARTHURB'S BONG. 'Twas an old log hut with the creepers crowned, 'Trailing along o'er the rich damp ground, Where the mopoke's note was wont to sound, In mournful lullaby. And many a flow'ret bright grew there, Bred by the lovely balmy air, And reared with a loving anxious care, By the Campaspe. But to my mind the fairest flower, Was one that sat for many an hour, In that bright blossomed garden bower, Precious to memory. Pure as the rose buds white that grew, True as the violets azure blue. Fond as her turtle doves that flew, By the Campaspe. And now it is all so desolate Broken the hinge of the trellised gate Only the birds of the wild wood mate, Down by the vinery. Weeds now spring rank in the damp dark mould, For all that was gay in the bright days of old Lies 'neath the turf in the earth so cold, By the Campaspe. But where was Gordon ?-'Twas the thought that first Roused him to action. Why had he thus left Without one line, without one single line To tell of how she died-to brea...
