POETRY. THE KILLING OF THE PIG. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 11 March 1876

POETRY. THE KILLING OF THE PIG. "The Prince succeeded in killing a pig." Copy of Times Telegraph from India. Hol England, sound the trump and drum, Your flags and banners rig; From India's shore the news has come Our Prince has killed a pig. Our English hearts will faster beat, With pride and triumph big, ITo read of this heroic feat, This killing of a pig. Our butcher boy who drives around In rapid morning joy, Will feel devotion more profound For him who killed the pig. They now are sunk in dark eclipse Whose souls' not worth a fig, Who dared to sneer at royal trips Our Prince has killed a pig. And who shall say the work was vain Or call it infra di? . Illustrious Prince, remain! remain! And kill another pig.

FRANK LAYTON. (AN AUSTRALIAN STORY.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 11 March 1876

FRAN K LAYTON. (AN AUSTRALIAN STORY.) BY G. E. SARGEANT. (FROM "LsEISURE IIoua.') "I am not quite convinced of that, Mr. Irving," responded the young American; " at any rate, I was witness not, long ago-when I took thatjourney into the other colony-to a scene which made me, as a man, ashamed of some of my prejudices; and caused me, as a Christian man, to thank God and take courage." "And what was'that?" asked Irving. "I spent one Lord's day," said Clialloner, "at the farm of an old settler, of whom I had heard various and contradictory reports, and concern ing which I wanted to judge for my self. His neighbors, who, however, lived a good way off, looked upon him as a singular and whimsical man, and were not sure that he was quite right in the upper story, as they said. Well, I arrived at the farm on Saturday, and was cordially welcomed, of course. There was nothing that I could dis cover remarkable in the farmer, except that he was particularly sensible in his conversation, and, as'...

The Manchester Guardian states that after the evacuation of France by the German army, a general was deputed by the Russian Emperor to visit the various European nations, and report upon the condition of their armies. lie wrote volumes about Germany, Italy, and Austria; but when he wrote of the English army he contented himself with about three lines, giving in substance the well-known summary of Marshal Bugeaud on the same subject, viz.:-" That the British troops were, per haps, the finest in the world, but happily there were very few of them." TIIE LOsT JEWEL.-Those persons who have seen the Lord Mayor of London not merely in his most festive garb, but in semi-state (says the WYorld of a recent date) will not have failed to notice that the chief magistrate wears at such times a large ovhl ornament, hung round his nook by a piece of Garter-blue ribbon. This ornament is composed of large diamonds; it is of great value, and has a history extending over something like 8...

WIRE WORMS. (QUEEN) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 11 March 1876

WIRE WORMS. (QUEEN) THin agencies of society, are as powerful in their own way as the agencies of nature, -and a fair analogy might be drawn between the two. The storms which destroy in a day the prosperous growths and progress of years, which perish the bonny boats, devastate farms, choke "corn and beer," uproot forest trees centuries old, flood the rivers and swamp the fields of sprouting grain what are they but the wars which suddenly convulse whole nations, slaying men and destroying commerce, swelling taxation, arresting the progress of science, the growth of art, rooting out the knowledge already set and flourish ing, reducing all things material to a state of chaos, and throwing back society to a comparative state of bar barism? The cloudless summer sunshine has its counterpart in the blessed serenity of assured love; the quiet of the starry night is the patience of sorrow, with its heaven of shining hopes to cheer and console; the seasons emblemizo the ages of man; and the f...

THE HIGH AND MIGHTY. (LIBERAL REVIEW.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 11 March 1876

THE HIIGI AND MIGHTY. (IInsAI) I BnsV1Bw.) SERVANTS as a rule, it is to be feared, do not love their niasters. Many of them appear to bo under the impression, indeed, that those whom they serve are above all others, their deadly enemies, who should be consequently hood winked and sacrificed' at all times. There is apparently a very wide-spread inability to appreciate the fact that masters and servants stand in the re lation of buyers and sellers to each other, and that there is no degradation on the one side, or superiority on the other, involved in the 'transactions which they have together. Perhaps masters are as much to blame as ser vants for this unsatisfactory state of things, seeing that many of them fre quently fall into the error of imagining that their underlings are creatures who ought to be very humblo and sub servient, to receive their pay. as if they were receiving so much charity, and generally to act as if they wore quite aware how very far they are removed from those...
