THE FORGED LETTERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 26 September 1868
'THE FORGED LETTERS. . Uncle Hervey, I have decided, - decided long ago, and announced to you my'decisioni." . You ainnouneed to me a whim, a ca price, the adoption of a ridiculous fancy, which, supposing you would never have the fool-hardiness-to persist in consuma ting, I did not violently oppose at the time. Buit now -- " "Now-wvell now, Uncle Hervey ?"' Isabel questioned, with her calm, dark eyes upon that gentleman. : .' " Now," he continued, regarding her sternly, " as your legal guardian, it be comes my duty to oppose you in a matter so vitally connected with your future welfare; to prove to you, since my plain and unsupported word does not suffice, that Maurice Bradly is not a suitable person for you to marry." Isabel's only reply to thiswas ahaughty inclination of her graceful head. After waiting a little, and very carefully re moving an imaginary speck of dirt from his coatesleeve, Mr. Hervey continued, somewhat more blandly : " As I told you before, Mr. Bradly is not a su...

* CRICKET- MATCH. T~. .:-~~oURI T. DEEwB LEY'' -.'.:(From a corresponident.) . This game came off. on Thursday, the .1 7th inst., on the ground of the former; The weather for several days previous had ,been excessively wet. A heavy shower which fell shortly before the play commenced did not at all improve the site on which the game was to be contested; both sides, however, appeared anxionus:t begin. The stumps being pitched, and .th? (ts.woun by the Yorkites, play was called and kept up (in spite of occasional showers) with great spirit on both sides. The Yorkites made a good stand, and their last wicket did not go down until they had succeeded in making, a score of eighty-six. After an interval of about tenminutes the other side took the bat, and played remarably steady, but made runs at a very slow rate, so that on the fall of the last• wicket they had only suc ceeded in rising their score to 33-thus leaving their opponents 53 runs in advance. All now repaired to the Luncheon, and...

It was a time when the wine goes round silently, and men whose faces are in shadow, feel disposed to speak more freely than is their wont in the broad glare of day. A third gentlerman was of the party-a gen tleman of the genus ' swell.' He did not look like a man who would talk in low, siad tones of byegone love-afflirs in the gloaning, tel ling his story nnder the influence of the hour of unhappy attachments and wasted devotion, but this was what Ih caid : " I can't help thinking that our institutions hear hard upon a fellow ; and that polygainy must be the right thing after all.

ARRIVAL OF THE ENGLISH MAIL. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 3 October 1868
ARRIVAL OF THE ENGLISHI MAIL, In our last Summary of the English. Mail we announced from the Telegrams which we had received, that Parliament was up, the season closed, and the Old Parliament dis missed, to be replaced by the New Reformed Parliament on or before the 1st of December. The members wvhich composed it have- now to test the effect of their own work, and the trial will be in all probability between beer and patriotism, and if nothing else results from the-change the malt duties will at events show an increese. On the whole the session has proved itself the most perplexing and discreditable recorded in our Parliamentary annals, and the rapidity with which the leaders of the two great parties alternately changed their relative poditions does not tend to raise the estimate of public men's honesty in the opinion of those, who are independent enough of party feelings to form a c'hl2al&d .corxect j.4dgieRneaj Mr. Disraeli altogether -gave up his role of enlightened state...
