EARLY CLOSING ASSOCIATION. AN APPEAL. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 6 May 1876

EARLY LOSIN.G_ ASSOCIATION. A N A?,A PE AL. D[URING the last few years the system 1 of Early Closing has made ;reat pro. grosq.s. So sound. is the principle, and so emphatically has the voice of Publio 'Opin ion spoken in its favour, that it is quite unnecessary, to argue upon it. All admit that Early Closing is an excellent thing. But although this is almost the universal opinion of every, sensible person in the community, the fact remains that numbers of shops still adhere to the pernicious system of Late Hours, Their excuses, for the monstrous practico are numerous; but we should have imagined that no excuse would serve to palliate a system, the natural tendenoy of which is to weaken the constitution and 'shorten life. ,We say, unhesitatingly, that not a. year passes by without the sacrifice of dozens of lives, and the 'ruin of the hgalth of hundreds'. of peoploin this city and stiburbs throuigl being kept for a' longer time than nature can bear, ,behind the counter or in ,the wo...

THE ART OF LUXURY. (BELGRAVIA.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 6 May 1876

THE ART OF LUXURY. (nEwa&vIA.) There is a luxury of the senses, and a luxury of the imagination. The an oients-that .is, the Greeks, Romans,' and Scriptural races,-understood both perfectly ; but our direct ancestors did not. The ancients began with their cities, making them by their magniU conco tempting to the very strangers whom they pretended to exclude. It is enough, however, to name Babylon, Athens, and Rome; for further ex patiation would give an historical tinge to that which is designed as pure phil osophy. For the same reason is reject ed, though not so peremptorily, that volume of anecdote which has its alpha in Cleopatra's pearl, and its omega in poor Jiack eating a five-pound note in a sandwich at Wapping, Most of those stories are apocryphal, and they do not present the true spirit of luxury, But, in order that a subject may be made interesting, it is essuntlal to take all the traditions with it, and spill the grain of salt. Let us believe, thon, in every thing...

NATURE, ITS BEAUTIES AND ITS LESSONS. To gaze on the'gorgeous scenes which re presented to our sight on every lIand is a blessed privilege, whether in storm or sunshine, in midwinter or on .ý hot and burning summer's day. We ipight take a beautiful morning when the sun, having commenced his daily course, is rapidly rising in his glory.

I love thee, not for thy vivacious speech, As sweet as siren's on Italia's beach. I love thee, not becauso thou art sans guile;. Nor for thy over-beaming, witching smile. I love thee, not for thy dark eyes of bliss; Nor, for those ruby lips Ilove to kiss. I love thee, not for thy cheek's roseate glow; Nor for thy classic neck as whito as snow.

CORRESPONDENCE.. . We do not necessarily endorso the opinions of our correspondents. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MlER~UR?Y. Dear Sir, I told you my troubles, last winter, and I am sorry to say that my complaint, though uttered so mildly, did not induce our hard.hearted councillors to mend their ways, and at the same time improve mine. Truly I am utterly neglected and destitute i MIy old friends the Collingwoodians shun my company because of the indignity which has been shown me by my governors. You will remember that I asked for "a little gravel or flagging for my footpaths," but instead of granting me my rights, as needed, they have added insult to injury, by heaping on mire-tenacious as birdlime 2-and I suppose are now grinning at my misery. What shall I do? Oh, friend, pray speak a powerful word on behalf of your neighbor, and old acquaintance. WELLINGTON ST. RMay 11th, 1870.
