ADVENTURES OF "YOUNG SKYBLUE." CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 13 March 1875

ADVENTURES OF "YOUNG-. SKY])LUE." CHAPTER II. Mrs.' Wendell made Tim as neat as she could, and sent him off at once -to try his fortune. The address given was at a confectioner's in Fleet Street. and Tim's mouth watered as he stood looking at the nice things in the win dow, and making up his mind to enter. Plucking up courage, he walked into the shop, and said to the young lady at the counter, "If you please, miss, I want to see Mr. A. B." " Oh, indeed," she said; I suppose you are come in consequence of the advertisement. I am afraid you are too late; there have been a dozen boys here already to-day. However, here is the gentleman's address; you can try if you like." Then she handed Tim a card upon which he read the name of Edward Waters, Fig-tree Court, Temple. In a few minutes he had found Mr. Waters's name on the door-posts of the house in the dark court, had climbed the dusty stairs, and stood in firont of that gentleman's desk, answering his questions."

THE LASH AS AN INSTRUMENT OF CIVILIZATION. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 13 March 1875

THE LASH AS AN INSTRU MENT OF CIVILIZATION. Lord Aberdare has long had a repu tation for the mildness of his character, and he appears to be fully alive to the terrors of a virago's tongue. His speech at the Epiphany sessions, at Cardiff, made his, brother magistrates pause ere they signed a petition in favour of applying the lash to men who kick their wives almost to death when under the influence of drink. Every day reveals the fact that poor women who have not got their husband's sup per ready, or who object to see the money which ought to go towards the support of household expenses diverted into the coffers, of the publican, are brutally beaten by men who have pro mised, in the presence of God and man, to "love and cherish" them. The Mrs. Naggletons of society are not so numerous as the Bill) Sykeses, and the example of the " navvy " who allowed his wife to pummel him because it pleased her and didn't hurt him, might be judiciously followed in some cases. A man's heavy boot is ...

DEPRESSION IN THE UNITED STATES. (The Gazette—Montreal.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 13 March 1875

DEPRESSION IN THE UNITED STATES. ( The Gazette--Montreal.) The condition of some parts of the neighboucing Republlc, especially of the Eastern States, is such as almost to excite commiseration. Our cousins very properly keep their courage high. They would be slow to adlmit that they are far down the ladder. But there are many concurring ciroumstances which indicate all too clearly the back ward slide which has bapponed. A few days ago we had occasion to refer to the extraordinary number of domestic servants out of employment in the city of Now York,-a fact apparent on the face of the advertising columns of the leading journals. Want of employ mqut soon lceads to destitution, and it is not surprising, therefore, to find that the application for nights' lodgings and other forms of casual relieof are exceed ingly nurnmous. The exertions of the charitable are holeng constantly entreated fbr the succour of the distressed. Real estate in the same city is perfectly un saleable at anything ...

SPORTING NEWS. CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 13 March 1875

SPORTING NEWS. cRICtIC T. The Intor.colonial match has boon again lost by the Victorians, and a groat many valid reasons are in circulation as to the casuo of our defeat. Some britics are kind enough to attribute it to the ground of the Sydneyitos not being equal to that of Meol bourne, which is usually kept as level as a billiard table. Others say that the -in. clemenoy of the weather combined with the good choor that hospitably inclined Sydney so abundantly supplied our men with affootod them seriously. At all events the match has boon lost, and in our opinion the reason is that Sydney is too good for us and that club rivalry between the members of the Victorian team contributed greatly to our defeat. Our friends from Tasmania have arrived in safety and are, to a man, in fine form. It is very much to be regretted that their stay hero is so short, otherwise we believe that our colonials might learn something from our visitors from "the tight little island." We have heard it whisper...

SATURDAY, MAR. 13, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 13 March 1875

SATURDAY, MAR. 18, 1876.

The clauses of such a bill, dealing with the question of adulteration, should be of a most strin. gent character, for it is bad enough to have to contend with drunkenness itself, with all its attendant evils, without having to contend with that form of it which is produced by the consumption of such compounds, as now regularly find their way into the mark...

EXTRAORDINARY SCENE IN A CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 13 March 1875

EXTRAORDINARY SCENE IN A CHURCH. (FROM? THE HOME NEWS.) On Sunday morning, Jan. 22, the service at the Irvingito Cathedral, at Albury, near Guildford-a building which was erected at a cost of £60,000( by the late Mr. Henry Drummond was interrupted in a somewhat alarm ing manner. The service had proceeded to the reading of the prayers, when Captain Symes, a member of the con. gregation, was observed to leave his seat. He at once ascended the stairs and entered the pulpit. Closing the door, he stretched forth his hands and addressed the congregation. He said he was commissioned by God to deliver a message, which would not be heard with favour. At this juncture several of the church officials rushed up the pulpit stairs and bogged the gallant captain to desist. The request was met by the captain drawing a sword from a sheath, which was concealed under his coat, and, waving it over his head. He said that if any person in terfered with him in the delivery of his message, he would run him...

THE MENNONITES. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 13 March 1875

t THE MENNONITES. I have just seen an official report from Canada respecting that very pe cihliar people, the Mennonites. A few facts in anticipation of the publication of this document may be interesting. Most of our colonies look to England to replenish their human strength; the Governments of Australia, New Zea land, and Canada have central agencies to direct the drain of our surplus popu lation to their shores. The Govern. ment of Canada has the most elaborate organization, and has probably been the most successful in its efforts. Hitherto Mr. Jenkins, M.P., has been the agent general of the Dominion, and Mr. Sydney Robjohns the agent of the Ontario Government. During the present year these governments will unite their organizations, and the hon. member for Dundee will be agent gene ral for all Europe. There will be a good deal of emigration this year, and hope is inspired even from Germany, where one of the Canadian agents not long ago was imprisoned and cast out. The emigratio...

"PUCK" ON SOCIAL MATTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 13 March 1875

" "PUCK" ON SOCIAL MATTERIS. 0 According to some of our "model" d Counoillors, their fino hall is likely to prove a a white elephant, and for this result they n have only themselves to blame, It is much to be regretted that the hall has proved a failure, for two reasons. The first and e most important is that such a large expenditure should have been incurred e without the prospect of a reasonable return . thereon; and the second is that this result might have boon quarded against by the choice of a better site for its erection. The . hall is spacious, splendidly ventilated, and possesses magnificent accoustic properties, 6 but its outside appearance is decidedly dgfoctivo, resemubling more a Baptist o church than the object for which it is liieant. Some talk of selling it to the Governmunt for a State school, but I doubt very much o if that august body would be justified in o shelling out to the tune of over .10,000 for 8 a building which will require the expendi turo of a large su...

A PRIEST IN THE POLICE COURT. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 13 March 1875

A PRIEST IN THE POLICE COURT. At the Emerald-hill Police Court on Saturday, Frank Henwood, a young man about 18, son of a master stevedore at Sandridge, summoned the Rev. Timothy O'Callaghan, Catholic priest, for assault, alleged to have been committed on the 14th ult. 'The magistrates were-Messrs. Danks (the mayor), Foote, Nimmo, Mouat, and Whiteman, J.P.'s. Mr. A. Read appeared for the complainant. The defendant had no lawyer. Mr. Read said that if the defendant would apologise he would recommend his client to withdraw the information, but the defendant did not accept the offer. The evidence of the complainant was to the effect that on Sunday evening, the 14th ult., he took a young woman into the Catholic Chapel at Emerald-hill. He was not a Catholic, and went, out of curiosity, to see the service at vespers. The young woman went into the body of the church, and he took a seat further back. There was a little boy standing up, and Father O'Callaghan, who was not engaged in the serv...
