THE ORIGIN OF THE POPESENCYCLICAL. (The Churchman's Family Magarile) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 23 February 1878

THE ORIGIN OF THE POPES' ENCYCLICAL. (The Churchman's Family Magasine.) IT has been reported, and apparently on good authority, that the Popes Encylical was prepared or suggested two years ago, but the present moment seemed the first suitable time for its publication. In this case the letter has been kept six months, less than a quarter of the time prescribed by Horace. We may doubt whether, if it had been kept the fall time, it would ever have been issued, for though Horace seems to think that nine years are enough to teach any writer the true value of his productions, the authority of thePope's letters grow morerabidand less grammatical with the advance of time. But though the letter itself may be two years old, it is certain that the propositions appended to it are far more recent; indeed, the propositions are mouch the most valuable part of the production. The encyclical itselfdif fers little from the Pope's several letters on the questions arising out of the Munich Congress, an...

The Mercury. PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vinct. SATURDAY, FEB. 23,1878. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 23 February 1878

PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY, FEB. 23, 1878. IT i- gratifying indeed to all who desire to see the general prosperity of Fitzroy and Collingwood to find that the City of Collingwood has lost no time in making available the grant towards the.completion of the Reilly street drain. A very great deal has been said both to the purpose and otherwise in reference to the prejudicial influence the unfinished condition of the drain exercised over the vital sta tistics of the district. And there is no doubt but much of the excessive mor tality has been due to this one existing evil. We hail therefore the effort now being made to abate the nuisance. Our readers'will know that the Collingwood Council by the aid of a former grant pitched the drain from Hoddle street to midway between Wellington and Smith streets, and this was an unmistakable benefit, not only to the frontages to the street along this portion of the drain, but also to the whole neighborhood. With the secon...

KHOUNG-FOU-TSEU AND MENG-TSEU. OR CONFUCIUS AND MENUCIUS. CONCLUDING ARTICLE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 23 February 1878

KJHOZNG-FOU-TSEU AND MENG-TSEU. OR CONFUCIUS AND MENCIUS. BY E A. SAMSON. CONCLUDING ARTICLE. AND now that my readers may be in a position to judge for themselves as to whether or not I have been too lauda tory in my description of the moral and metaphysical writings of the Chinese philosphers. I will proceed to lay before them a few extracts from the works of Confucious and of his disciples. My first selections are from the TA Hio or the treatise composed by Confucious himself. (a) The basis of all practical philosophy, consists in developing and bringing to light the luminous principles of reason, that sub lime gift which we have received from heaven, the object of it being to lead man to seek for himself the sovereign good. (b) A man should first ex amine for himself what are his chief tendencies, either for good or for bad, and having made sure that he is not self deceived, he should then determine to strengthen the former, and by strict discipline overcome the latter. (e) Every...

NEW CHURCH TEMPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 23 February 1878

NEW CHURCH TEMPLE. The long-cherished wish of the Christian friends worshipping in the New Church Temple, Eastern hill, has at length been realized. By the good ship Lord Warden, arrived the Rev. Joseph J. Thornton, from Southport, England, invited by the Mel. bourne Society of the New Church, to take charge of the congregation as its pastor. He first set foot on shore on Friday, the 8th February. His labors soon ;?an, on Sunday, 10th by conducting the services, and ordaining Mr. E. G. Day. of Adelaide, who had been deputed by the New Church Society there, to represent them at the meeting to welcome Mr. Joseph Thornton. The ordination service-very beautiful in itself-is especially so, in the declaration of faith by the ordained minister. " That in the dispensations of Divine Providence in the various systems of religion and forms of worship, from the earliest ages have all been such as suited the genius of the age, and embodying the true and good in degree most adapted to those adop...

KATIE'S CHOICE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 23 February 1878

KATIE'S CHOICE. FBOXTHE FAMIT aEALR KATIE PAasons was a visitor as the house of her uncle, thefirst architect in the town of Dromborough. Mr. Parsons had no children of his own, but had adopted Katie's brother Mat as his son when Katie had been taken to the home of her father's only sister on the death of their parents. Katie's visits to Dromborough were of rare and memorable occurrence, as her aunt dwelt in the extreme south of England, and therefore when she came she was greatly petted by uncle, aunt, and brother, and her stay was made the occasion of a series of entertainments and gaities. As to personal attractions, Katie was the veriest little witch that ever con descended to inhabit mortal mould; from the soft golden-ringed curls that decked her lovely head to the dainty tips of her fairy feet she was perfectly enchanting. She danced, laughed, played, sang, and conversed with an artless grace that put all the recognized belles of Dromborough into the shade and turned the heads...

CHERUBIM AND SERAPHIM. (THE BIBLE EDUCATOR.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 23 February 1878

CHERUBIM AND SERAPHIM. (THE BIBLE EDUCkTOR.) The mythologies of most nations bear witness to the aptness of the mind of man to form symbols of higher condi tions of existence, possessed of greater and more varied gifts and powers, by different combinations of the parts of animals. The sphinxes of the Egyp tians, the winged bulls of the Assyrians, and the monsters of Greek mythology, are instances familiar enough. The reason of this tendency is obvious. Each kind of animal has organs adapted to its limited mode of life, which are denied to others. It follows that by the combination of what is peculiar to each one of several kinds, an illustra. tion is obtained of existence more or less set free from the limitations of existing material nature. The word "cherub" might have been applied by the Hebrews to any such combinations which bore to themselves a religious significance. Many writers have sought to derive the cherubim of the Hebrews from the winged men or the sphinxes of Egypt. Ot...

BANQUET TO JOHN WOOD, Esq., J.P. Mr. John Wood, of the firm of Wood and Sons, brewers, Yorkshire brewery, Welling- ton-street, Collingwood, is about to visit England after an absence of nearly thirty years. Mr. Wood, with his family, left England early in the month of June, 1848, and arrived in this colony in October the same year. During the last eighteen or twenty years he has devoted his energies to the profession of a brewer, in which he has become eminently successful, the Yorkshire brewery with its high tower and chimney being one of the features in the City of Collingwood. During the many years he has been in this colony, Mr. Wood has by his general integrity recommended himself to all with whom he had dealings, and his intended departure was no sooner known than steps were immediately taken by a number of the leading citizens and old colonists to bring about a gathering of Mr. Wood's friends, as a mark of their appreci- ation of his many sterling qualities.

AN IDYLLIC PICTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 2 March 1878

AN IDYLLIC PICTURE. THE eighteenth century ended in blood and in bucolics. Some years before the invention of the guillotine, the most beautiful bergeries in the world were invented. It was the time of Boucher, of Watteau, and of Sancrd ; but shepherdesses in silk petticoats and in powdered perruques were met elsewhere than on snuff-boxes and the tops of doors. Marie Antoinette had brought with her from Germany rural tastes; and, as a relaxation from the weariness of being a queen, she sometime dreamed that she was a shepherdess. Trianon seemed to. her just the very place to realize her idyllic vision. One day when =he'had assembled at her rural home all the royal family and some of her intimate female friends, she plunged with her guests into the groves of Trianon, to show them new wonders. By degrees the groves grew denser and developed into a small wood. The sanded alleys of the English garden disappeared, and the guests walked on moss. A brook, which was called a river, and whic...

POPULATION OF VICTORIA. By the Government Statist's quarterly abstract of the estimated population of this Colc.ny, on the 31st December, 1877, it appears that the increase during the quarter was 3,3:97 males, and 2,105 females, giving a total increase of 5,443.

The arrivals by sea numbered 41,196, or more than any other year since 1858; and the departures by sea numbered 33.493, or more than in any other year since 1863. The increase of population exceeded that 1876 by 3,476. and was also in excess of that in any year of the previous decenniad ex cept 1868, 1869, 1870, and 1871, as will be seen by the ...
