LITERATURE. Notices of New Books. [Newspaper Article] — Australian Town and Country Journal — 19 March 1870
LITERATURE. j Notices of New Books. MR. GLADSTONE'S YOUTH OF THE WORLD, OR THE GODS AND MEN OF THE HEROIC AGE. Macmil lan and Co. IT is not often that an individual is privileged to distinguish himself greatly in more than one sphere &nbsp; of intellectual activity. Ono great pursuit is found engrossing enough for tho generality of minds of oven tho largest capacity, and of the greatest in dustry. Such cases as those of Pericles of ancient Greece, of Cæsar and of Cicero, only serve to show how stringent is tho rule to which we refer, and how few are tho exceptions to it. It has fallen to tho lot of a man of our own time and nation to he numbered amongst those illustrious exceptions. Tho great orator and political leader of England, William Ewart Gladstone, has long been recognised as one of the most indefatigable and accomplished of literary men ; and he is as likely to transmit his name to posterity in tho capacity of an author as in that of a great orator and parliamentary...

Gossip of the Week. IN the early park of tho week tho weather gavo every body enough to talk about. This Avas fortunato in ono respect, for there was littlo else to bo done-business being at a stand-still. Anxious crowds consulted the messago board at tho telegraph office ; and when "High Change" arrived, "writing on the wall" at Grevillo's was looked for generally with moro of fear than of hope. Dulness reigned supremo ; people who could by any possibility stay at home did so, and thanked their lucky stars for the chance ; while tlioso whoso business called them imperatively forth, looked up their " Old Clo '," and appeared in many cases ns though they had just tumbled out of thc family rag bag.
