NOTES AND COMMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 5 April 1879

NOTES AND COMMENTS. Br CosroPOLITE. IF my memory is not at fault the fire brigades of Collingwood were united some few months ago under one organi zation, to be known as numbers one, two, three, and four contingents of the City of Collingwood Fire Brigade. This was done to put a stop to the petty jealousies and bickerings between mem bers of the various brigades, and to conserve to unanimity of action at fires. The theory was an excellent one, but like other theories has proved to be unworkable up to the present, through some cause or other unex plained. Several fires have recently occurred to which only one contingent has gone. The questions naturally arise : Where are the the others? Why are they not here ? After a little time spent in searching out the matter, I have arrived at the following conclu sion. His Worship the Mayor offered a reward of 5s. to the contingent having first water on at any fire, in the laudable desire of promoting activity and promptitude amongst the member...

MEN WITH WHOM I MEET. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 5 April 1879

MEN WITH WHOM I MEET. Br COBMOPOLITE. LocAL items and strange events, being at a considerable discount this week-nothing strange or startling to be commented upon, and the Editor of the Mercury crying out for copy-I am forced to forgo my usual column of remarks, and take a subject of another character in hand. Be it, therefore, understood that the following criticisms are based upon a close observance of the characters of people to be met with in everyday life, in all classes of society, but lest any should imagine that personalities are to be indulged in, I hasten to undeceive him, for neither names nor habitations of those por trayed shall be divulged. With this brief introduction, I turn first to The lazy man.-He terms himself a contractor, a building contractor, but if the truth were plainly stated, this is but a pretext for continued idleness, for waiting, Micawber like, for something to turn up. He turns out of bed to a late breakfast, over which he dawdles for an hour-and-a-h...

CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 5 April 1879

CHAPTER I. "I'll seek a four-leaved Shamrock, Through all the fairy dells; And if I find the charmed leaves, Oh! how I'll weave myspells". SAmurZ LovrsI. Bright eyes have sought and sought in vain for this precious talisman, but Mary O'Brien, more fortunate than many seekers before her, while gather ing a sprig of shamrock on the 17th of March 1852, to deck the hut of one Dermot O'Toole, just to show that the "dacent" boy had'n't lost the ways of his ancestors, nor his patron saint, the blessed St. Patrick, was attracted by a stem having four leaves growing from it. In an instant it was plucked and in her grasp, the delighted girl exclaiming: "Saints and Martyrs! but it's a four leaved shamrock I've gathered this blessed minnit! By the holy St. Bridget it's just that same! Oh what'll I do? what'll I do? My heart's so full with joy I can hardly hold it in my bosom with the big thumps of it! What'll I wish for? what'll I wish for? Sure, don't I know whatever I wish will come true! Ais...

COUNCILS. CITY OF COLLI"GWOOD. WEDIESDAT, APran 2. Present: Cr. Turner, in the chair, Cr. Peters, Wright, Upton, Bryant, and Hanslow. Minutes read and confirmed. Letters outwards read. CORBESPONDENCE. From Mr.D. Munro, asking permission to quarry stone on the street (Marine parade), as the best stone appe=rs to be there. Ordered that reply be sent that the request could not be granted, and the letter be referred to the surveyor to see if any quarrying is going on in the streets, as alleged by Mr. Munro. From Mr. Swan, stating that he is about to erect new premises at the corner of Langridge and Wellington-streets, and as the footpath is very narrowthere, offers to sell frontage to widen the same at £15 per foot, having a depth of eighty-five feet. Cr. Upton thought it was desirable to obtain the necessary land. The price was very reasonable for the position, and if Mr. Swan did build up to his corner the widen ing of the footpath would be delayed in definitely. Cr. Peters and Cr. Ha...

The Mercury. PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY, APRIL 5, 1879. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 5 April 1879

the Shroul. PUBUSHED EVERY SATURDAY. LaTbor Omania incit. SATURDAY, APRIL 5, 1879. So much has been said and written about defaulting officials of building and friendly societies, municipal cor porations, &c., that there is very little more to be either said or written on the subject. We cannot hope to say much that is new, but at the risk of being irksome we must reiterate the caution, so frequently bestowed on all who have the management of public funds, that they should have a rigid and periodical audit of the finances intrusted to them. Friendly and building societies are in a very large number of instances the poor man's bank. In them he deposits his savings, his provision for sickness and death, and perchance his hope that he may one day be the proud possessor of a house of his own ; an unencum bered freehold where he can rest in peace after the burden and heat of the day. And it is to such societies we would more particularly allude. Muni cipal corporations can genera...

SUICIDE OF REV. T. C. COLE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 5 April 1879

SUICIDE OFREV. T.0C. COLE. IT is with deep regret we have to announce the death, by his own hand, of the Rev. Thomas Cornelius Cole, M. A., incumbent of St. George's Church, Malvern, who was found dead on a wood pile, on the premises of his father, Mr. T. C. Cole, Tooronga road, Hawthorn, with whom he was tempor arily residing. The Rev. gentleman has been unwell for some time, and had obtained six months' leave of absence from his congregation. As he had conducted himself somewhat eccentrically of late, a watch was kept upon his actions by his relatives, but on Friday week, he managed to escape their surveillance, and strangled himself with a silk handerchief, which he twisted round his neck by means of a piece of wood. The Rev. Mr. Cole has been for many years a clergyman of the Church of England, having been one of the first to take the degree, that of B.A., to the Melbourne University. He was ordained deacon on the 23rd December, 1860, and received priest's orders on the.22nd Dec...

FOOTBALL. THE annual general meeting of the Clifton Football club was held on the 27th ult., at the Albion hotel Smith-street Mr. Williams in the chair. The secretary read the annual report etc., which showed that they had a very successful season, no less than fifty members paid their entrance fees and donations of £4 15s. 3d. made a total of £12 5s. 3d. The expenses which were rather heavy for a junior club, amounted to £10 14s. 9d.-thus leaving a balance of £1 10s. 6d.

THE OLD DEAN. "I Speak of him As he is known to all."—Wordsworth. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 12 April 1879

THE OLD DEAN. "I speak of him As he is known to all"-Wordsworth.. Thursday last was the eightieth birthday of a well.known colonist and minister of Christ; one who thirty-two years ago "was induced to leave his native land (Ireland)-a land endeared to her sons and daughters to a degree that those born in happier climes can scarcely comprehend, by those very sorrows that have made her a by-word s among nations "-and cast in his lot with Port Phillipians, " not as a missionary, but as a colonist, though determined in his adopted, as in his native country, to give himself wholly to his Master's work." To leave the land of his birth" for a distant clime was a sore trial, for, " He loved the spot Who does not love his native soil? He prized the ancient rural character, composed Of simple manners, feelings unsuppressed And undisguised, and strong and serious thought; A character reflected in himself, With such embellishments as well beseems His rank and sacred function." The subject of th...
