ENGLAND'S FOREIGN POLICY, [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 26 April 1879

ENGLAND'S FOREIGN POLICI, Bismarck (according to the London papers) says England voluntarily makes concessions to Constantinople and Cairo which come to meet the French half way. But the French nation is not without the feeling that England is the principal actor, and that in the eyes of the Orientals her own diplomacy only appears as a kind of dame d'Aon. neur, and that, though she would like to develop her influence, she only plays a second part. The English power and the English demands grow all the more quickly. It is not very long since the significance of England was very small for all international affairs, while to-day nobody can deny that the Cabinet of Beaconsfield represents a new and powerful era of the English history. The power and strength of England are untiring; all over the world we see the affects of it. And since the last two years, and particularly since the Berlin Congress, we see England begin enterprises of the greatest importance. In Constantinople, Syria, A...

THE OLD DEAN. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 26 April 1879

THE OLD DEAN. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. SIs,-As the writer of the article on the above, I was glad to read in your list, a letter signed N. Kinsman, endorsing "all I said good of him," for, as I said nothing bad, he endorses all, and confirms what I said of other denominations, for it seems even the " Chief Seceeder" can consistently join in the public testimonial to be given. But the "Chief"P' is in error when he says, from what I wrote, it " would appear that the seceeders were against the Dean." Certainly "it was not so," but the reverse, the Dean was against the secsssion. Ialso believe with N. K. that if the Dean had had the arrangement (sic) of Abbotsford at the time, the secession would have been averted. I had no intention to tread on the toes of any one, or wound the feelings of N. K., for at one time I am informed he was a most earnest and devoted member of the Angli can Church. Yours, etc., THE AUTHOR of the ARTICLE. P.S.-I may add the list of subscriptions will not b...

CsUPTE IL "Joanna I "-" Millicent!" The sisters embraced each other very affectionately amidst the bustle of the passengers who alighted on the platform. " Why, dear, how you've grownl" Joanna said, survying the tall, lithe figure from head to foot. "I never dreamed of seeing you so tall and woman like. Two years have changed you greatly, Millicent." "I am eighteen, Joanna. I was quite a child when you saw me last." " True," said the eldersister, dreamily. "And," inquired Millicent Craig, how is dear old cousin Tabby and her Damon's Reflections? And how is that paragon of manly perfection whose name has figured in your letters so frequently for the last twelve months ? Is he nice ?. Do you think I shall like him? ' What kind of fellow is he, Joanna dear-tall, dark, fair, stout ? " "We really musn't stand talking here-it is to cold," Miss OCraig inter rupted; "let us get -the lnggage together, and; secure a cab to take it on. Come, Millicent." '.'

THE DREAM AND THE AWAKENING. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 26 April 1879

THE DREAM AN D ,THE AWAKENING. COaPTra L "Joanna, my dear, what's the time?" Joanna Craig glanced at the clock which stood on the velvet-topped mantelpiece-a quaint little ebony dial with figures that were misty and slim -and answered Miss Tabitha Jerrard in her usual sweet-toned voice. " Five minutes past seven, cousin Tabby. I must see about going at once." " Five minutes past seven! " cousin Tabby repeated. "Why, Joanna, it looked to me like something or another past two, I declare! My eyes are surely not failing me yet? Yes, my dear, it is quite time you thought about walking to the station. But 'tis a pity you are' not going as far as Victoria. Millicent would have been glad if somebody had met her at Victoria, instead of her coming on to Brixton all alone." " Millicent won't mind in the least," Joanna returned, cheerfully, as she folded up her work, and put it tidily away. "She is thoroughly capable and always was-of taking care of herself. As a girl of sixteen she was. able t...

The Mercury. PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY, APRIL 26, 1879. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 26 April 1879

ht~ ier PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY, APRIL 26, 1879. "We must not make a scare-crow of the law Setting it up to fear the birds of prey, And let it keep one shape, till custom makes it Their perch, and not their terror." CONSTANT complaints are being made of the necessity for more police protection for Collingwood, owing to the disgraceful manner in which the young larrikins, of both sexes, mis conduct themselves. But we think if the police at present on duty were supported a little more by the magis trates they would render a good account ofthemselves, and the incessant cry for more police would be unnecessary. We are led to make these remarks from the Collingwood Bench, in our opinion, showing the most mastakon leniency to some prisoners, on Friday morning last. The facts are-three young men, Ashworth, Thompson, and Drewery, charged with vagrancy, were found by the police in the tannery. in Reilly-street, at 3 o'clock in the morning of Sunday. They had no...

M. GREVY, THE NEW FRENCH PRESIDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 26 April 1879

Ml: GREVY, THE NEW FRE NCH PRESIDENT. - ' -` M. GREVY was born at Montsos-. Vaudrex (Jura) on August .15?, 1813. He studied law in Paris, and in July 1830 was one of the band which seized the :Babylone barrack.. On being admitted to the Bar, he soon acquired celebrity as advocate for political offenders, especially for two companions of Barbbs in 1839. On the Revolu tion of 1848 he was appointed Com missioner for the Jura by the Provincial- Government, in which capacity he displayed such moderation and prudence that he was returned at the head of the poll, almost unanimously indeed, as one of the eight represent atives of that Department in the Constituent Assembly. He became a Vice-President and a member of the Justice Committee in that body, and spoke frequently and with ability. While holding aloof from the Socialists and the Mountain, he usually voted with the Extreme Left. He proposed in the debates on the Constitution that the Chief of the State should be entitled President of...

JUDGE NOT A MAN BY HIS CLOTHES. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 26 April 1879

JUDGE NOT A MAN BY HIS CLOTHES. A RATHER good story is told of a cer tain Anglican clergyman, who resides not one thousand miles from Melbourne. A young gentleman of prepossessing appearance, with the orthodox boots and trunks of bush costume, visited the cleric in question and sent in his card. He was ushered into the library, and received by the rev.gentleman, who con descendI to ask him to take a chair. The visitor, a son of a bishop, opened the conversation by talking about the families in the old country. "Ah, yes, I know them well, poor lady so-and-so, but by the way, Mr. Blank, I have so many calls upon me that I do not think I can do anything for you. No doubt you will find something to do in time, as I suppose you write a good hand, but in the meanwhile, fear the Lord ; here are three tickets for the Immigrants Home, supper, bed, and breakfast." The expression upon young boots and breeches, the squatter in embryo was immense. "Good heavens, sir, " he exclaimed, "I merely pa...

NOTES AND COMMENTS. 23479. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 26 April 1879

NOTES AND COMMENTS. Br , COSMOPOLITE. : 2314179. THE erection of the new Exhibition Bui~ldings, in Carlton gardens is being pr sbed forward with the utmost celerity. The contractor is fortunate 'm having so far had the advantage of ,one weather and has lost no time in '"making hay while the sun shines." ;Already the walls have reached a ~eonsiderable height, forming a con -zspicuous land-mark to the dwellers on all sides of the gardens. From the present appearance of the chaotic mass of building materials, walls, arches, posts, and deep foundation stones, it would be difficult to imagine the ultimate shape or size of the building, but as out of confusion order is origina ted so in time will a handsome structure rise on a spot which was, but a few years since a wilderness. Of course the traffic has destroyed the recent beauty of the gardens, an agreeable lounge on a summer afternoon has been destroyed, but as the ultimate appearance of the place will more than compensate for the pres...

YARRA BEND ASYLUM. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 26 April 1879

YARRA BEND ASYLUM.   Dr. Kenison, the late resident medical officer at the Yarra Bend Asylum, for female wards, has left that institution and gone on a voyage to England. He has been replaced by Dr. Warren who is gaining golden opinions for his kindnese and unre- mitting attention to the unfortunate patients. At an inquest lately the jury were informed the deseased had been visited twice and three times daily, for lengthened periods, by the doctor, who had administered the food and medicine himself. And in another case it was given that deseased was visited before her death five times by the doctor. Such evidence of sympathy and humanity are very gratifying. The poor patients are insensible and can make no complaints if even a perfunctory discharge of their duties were indulged in by the resident medical officers, but for- tunately such happens not to be the case. On all sides there is evidenceof the greatest care and attention; the inmates are most of them stout and he...

COLLINGWOOD—FRIDAY. Before His Worship the Mayor, Messrs. W. Kidney, Bell, Berry, and Levens. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 26 April 1879

COLLINGWOOD-Friday Before His Worship the Mayor. Messrs. W. Kidney, Bell, Berry, and Levens. Mary Irvine, an incorrigible drunkard, was charged with having no visible lawful means of support. It appears the unfortu nate woman had become so degraded that her brother and children had been obliged to seek the interference of the police. She said she thought her daughter at Ballarat would take charge of her. Remanded for a week. In the mean time, if the money for her fare were sent down, she was to be brought up and discharged. Denis O'Callaghan was charged with assaulting one Anthony Higgins, a bailiff, in the execution of his duty, on the 22nd April, 1879, at Johnston-street, Colling wood. It appeared that Higgs went to execute a distress warrant, and seized a horse. Prisoner took a tomahawk, and his wife a billet of wood. He was seized by the throat and knocked down, and two young men came and rescued the horse. The landlord, Mr. Cook was present when Higgs was assaulted, and corrobo...

THE USES OF FERNS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 3 May 1879

TEE US7ES OF FERNS. Those who havebeen fairlyinoculatea with the love of ferns, will be interested to learn that many species of those beautiful plants are used not only for food and medicine, but for economic purposes. As food, they are chiefly useful to the aboriginal inhabitants of some foreign countries. In the larger of the exotic ferns - the tree-like species-the inner part of the stem, stipes, or rhizoma- corresponding to what would be the pith in other plants -and sometimes the whole of the tuberous rhizoma is eaten, generally after been boiled. In India, some of the natives boil the pith of one species of fern, and eat it with shrimp curry. Amongst ourselves, two of. the most beautiful species-the Bracken and the Male Fern-are said to have been' sometimes used as ingredients iin the manufacture of beer ; whilst one foreign species (apsidum fragrans) is actually stated to have been used for making tea. Our native Maidenhair used at one. time to furnish a principal ingredient...

BRUNSWICK-STREET WESLEYAN CHAPEL ANNIVERSARY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 3 May 1879

BRUNSWICKlBTRRET WEBLBYAN CHAPEL ANNIVERSARY. The anniversary of this church was cele brated ,by a public tea meeting in the Jubilee Schoolroom. King William-street, Fitzroy, on Monday evening, the 28th ult. Previous to the hour of meeting the change in the weather, which had been threaten ing, took place, and a heavy storm burst over the city. Welcome, indeed, as was the rain, it prevented many attending who otherwise, undoubtedly, would have been present. What. however, the meeting lacked in numbers was more than compen sated for by the spirit that animated those present. At the conclusion of. the tea the friends adjourned to the church to receive the report and statement for the year, and the result of the late bazaar. The Rev. Dr. Dare occupied the chair, and by the geniality and humor of his disposition en livened the proceedings of the evening, and infected his audience with much of his own spirit. He alluded to the heavy down fall of rain as a cause for thankfulness to God, a...
