COLONIAL INDUSTRY IN THE EASTERN MARKET. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 22 April 1876

COLONIAL INDUSTRY IN THEEASTERN MARKET. The colonial industry that develops itself in the Eastern market is by no means admirable, extensive, or edifying in its character. It consists chiefly, in tempting, sweetmeats, novel toys, &c., to draw the pence that make pounds out of the pockets of the boys and girls of all grades who are to be seen every market night laying out their small capital in things sweet to the tooth and pleasing to the eye, while small gather ings of the"great unwashed" are sprinkled here and there, eagerly looking ing on with wistful eyes and watering mouths, their very looks asking the youthful purchasers for a moiety of the bargains, while one prompted by acute gnawing of the inner-man comes up and brushing his dirty garments against Susie's clean pinafore, and almost grab bing, ejaculates, " Gi'e's a bit;" which Susie rejects by an insulted look, and the humble suppliant retires crestfallen. Probably, on entering the fair, the first person noticeable ...

AIR AND LIGHT. (TINSLEY'S MAGAZINE.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 29 April 1876

. AIR AND" LIGHT. (TINBsaY'Bs MIaAZINP,) Air, liko all similar fluids, expands under the influence of heat. A fire balloon ascends because the air which it contains is many degrees lifghter than the surrounding atmosphere. Heated air, being lighter that which is cooler, has of course a tendency to rise. If, in a room in which the temperature is many degrees above that of the atmo. sphoro outside, we open a window a few inches at the top and bottom, we shall find that a current of warm air rushes out through the upper, and a current of cold air rutshes in through the lower, aporturo. A circulation or Ventilation is thus established in the air of the room which is precisely analogous to that whloh takes place on the grand scale in nature. The air, being heated or rar fled by the sun's rays over certain portions of the earth's surface, espe cially those that lie within the tropics, is constantly rising, and cooler currents are as constantly flowing in to supply its place. In this, way ...

POETRY. MY SISTER MADGE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 29 April 1876

POETRY. MY SISTER MADGE. Thy beauty's faded My sister Madge,; Sorrow hath shaded Thine eyes so large. Gone is the roundness Of form and face, Old Time hath stolen Thy winning grace. But doing thy duty Thou'rt dearer to me Than when in thy beauty, So joyous and free. Thou mixed with the brightest, Thy young apirits high, Thy step was the lightest, The brightest thine'eye. Sad is thy bearing My sister Madge, Since thou't been wearing Deep sorrow's badge. Gone is the lightness Of buoyant feet, Silent, now ever, Thy voice so sweet. But in thy sadness I feel thee more near Than when in thjy gladness, r Thy voice ringingolaoea, Thou roamqd like.a wild bird Or gay happy child. Witl spirit unfettered .And fancy so wild.

WESTMINSTER ABBEY. (SUNDAY AT HOME.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 29 April 1876

WESTMINSTER ALBB1EY. (suNDwA AT noME.) Tuis abbey, in point of architectural magnificence, must yield' to other ecclesiastical edicoes of Europe, but as it respects the comprehensiveness of its national character, it stands unrivalled in the world. Specimens which it pro sents of Norman, Plantagenet, Tudor, Stuart, and Georgian art are suggestive of royal dynasties whose fortunes are interlinked with the mehnories of the Minster. Revolutions of race are marked on the building, -as well as;on the coronation chair which it contains. Tombs on the floor, and monuments on the walls, bring before us illustrious persons, of diversified genius and re nown; warriors, statesmen, philosophers poets, to whom are added such men of science as form a now class of worthies on the roll of modern fame. As a building dedicated to the worship of God, and employed for Christian service on imperial occasions, it not only recalls images of state splendour, blended with acts of religious reverence, hut it ...

But he cannot refrain from giving a parting line to the champions of the Flat. The leading feature in the match just, played is the manner in which the Collingwood have ex tinguished themselves by going so far from home to get players whom they fondly, though vainly, hoped would succeed in wresting the Cup ;from the horny grip of the notorious Capulet. i Who thatis acquainted with Collingwood crioketers will deny.me when I say that with their own men the Collingwood would have stood a far better chance ? Having gallantly and cleverly held the Cup through six matches, they now damn themselves by introducing a foreign element inferior to the local talent, at the last match of the season, and succeed in what P-why not gaining the Cup, and disgracing them solves. I would impress upon the atten tion of the Cup Committe...
