MEMORANDA. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph, St Kilda, Prahran and South Yarra Guardian — 17 March 1866

MEMORANDA. In reference to the inquiry lost week by our correspondent "' Jones," as to the collec tion of. rates in St, Kilda, we may state that ve hav'e 'reason to believe the alteration he refers to has been caused by a doubt having been raised as to borough councils having legal power to sue for a year's rates, unless the rate has been levied as a whole. The question is still unsettled, and therefore most oouncils are this year 'claiming the year's rates entire, We believe, hlowever, that arangements have been made by some tare ceive the rate in two instalments, the first on account-so that the .convenience of rate payers will be considered, without prejudicing the legal rights of the borough, To-morrow evening, at the Congregational Church, Commerucial-road, the Rev. iVm. Moss, will.proach a sermon on the "Loss of the aondon?' On Thursday next, at the Town Hall, -Prnhran, . grand amiateur concert will be giveon in .aid of the building fund of the Windsor Congregational Church. M...

LIVEABLE PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph, St Kilda, Prahran and South Yarra Guardian — 17 March 1866

LIVEABLE PIEOPLE. Everybody who has ever bden under a measter or engaged by an employer, every body who has ever been a member of a household or a family, must have a ready conception of the quality--liveableness. It ,nay be slid to express the wliole range of those peculiarities of hear't and I of manners which are, required to make! association tolerable. Many men and lwomel are of irre proachable character in all the great essentials, yet are not liveable people. MaDay are doubt ful, or more than doubtful, id these respects, and yet are eminently liveable people. Per haps, it mrty even be said that extreme ' cor rectness' is somewhat inconsistent with live ableness; while, on the other hand, failings and faults, within a certain limit are necessary for it. We mean to say that ':the faultless monster whom the world ne'erl saw,' would necessarily be an eminently unliveable person; because, this, is how. we suppose it is -when a person has succeeded in trampling out all the fires of...

ESSAY. CANDOUR. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph, St Kilda, Prahran and South Yarra Guardian — 17 March 1866

ESSAY. I Cia:OArovn. Candour teaches us to make every allow nce to others. It enjoins the necessity of a great degree of attention and penetration to discover the humble excellence and secret in fluenoe of virtue. It convinces us that ractions are often far different from what they appear to be, and that reason and justice re quire us to be very diffident of our judgments. United with charity, it gladly cherishes the hope that, if we were able to look into the heart we might find reason togive credit for the existence of much good. It must be conlessed. however, that it is impossible to.think well of everybody. This disposition is sometimes found in those who ire just entering into life-who know not how so suspect any insincerity in words, or bad lesigns in actions. But belonging only to youth and inexperience, it does .n'ot last long. A little knowledge of mankind destroys tihe pleasing allusions, and shows a world far different.firom what the imagination of'an .in nocent and benev...

EMIERALD HILL PHILHARMONIC .AND PRAHRAN & SOUTH YARRA. MUSICAL SOCIETIES. We must congratulate the members of the Emerald IIill and the Prahran and South Yarra Musicahl Societies on the success attend. ing their performance of the "Creation" on Thursday evening. There is nothing more disrheartening after taking the immense amountofpaias and trouble necessary to get up a good concert, tjhan to find the benches almost empty. On this occasioni however, it afforded us as much gratification as it must have done .the committee to see the Hall well filled, and by sorespectable an audience. The concert itself was a complete success, and the manner in which the various parts were taken evidence an amount of careful training on the part of the gentleman who has the conductorship of the two societies, alike creditable to himself and thle members. The chorus voices were scarcely equally balanced, the trebles being decidedly weak. ,Ve understand that two or three of the most efficient la...
