WHAT MAY HAPPEN TO A MAN IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 28 June 1879

WHAT MAY. HAPPEN TO A lWAN IN The Creswioek Advertiser records the follow. ing sad end of some.wayfarer:-On Saturday evening 14th June, Constable' Shortil ie-. ceived information that a man was lying dead at the creek side, near 'the. reservoir, at Newlyn. On proceeding'to the spot he discovered the remains of a man about thirty.five years of age, respectably dressed in a new suit of clothes..partly seated on a swag; on the rocky bank of Birch's Creek, just' below the reservoir. ' A: little above' him was a fence with' two rails and two virs ; a id to one of these wires was at-' tiched a strap with a running noose around his fcck. , Although. suicide had evidently been the intention of the unfortunately felldow. strange" to say the face bore no signs of death by stranigulation, Constable Shortil is' of :opinion' that the man must :have felt he "was dying from exhaustion, and wishing to accelerate his end, sat down on his swag, then reaching a short distance above him, tied the strap...

LOVING PEARLS. (THE QUEEN.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 28 June 1879

LOYINGG PEARLS. (TaE QUEEN).. THE Chinese call young ladies "loving pearls": in the same way as at home the fair sirens are, sometimes spoken of as "little ducks"-this accounts for the heading of 'my contribution. They also sometimes call them "Love of the Moon, Golden Water Lily, Spring Peach, Light of the Spring, Phoenix, Delicate, and Green Pearl" . It is my intention to give a short description of the ladies of the Cel estial Empire, their national pecu liarities, dress, - manners, and personal attainments. In China the lower class 'of women -the coolie class-to speak plainly are nothing more than human hearts of burden. In Hong Kong the sam pan women (boat-women), are hard-working, handy and do all the local boat traffic between Koulon and Hong Kong, in carrying on shore passengers per the P. and 0. steamers, or French mail, as well as numerous " foreign steamers." They are muscular and have cer tainly no claim to beauty. They are good-natured, as a rule, and amuse me not a lit...

During the same year, their united revenues amounted .to £750,000.

LOVE'S FULL SACRIFICE. (Continued from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 28 June 1879

LOVE'S FULL SACRIFICE. (Continued from our last.) Was it too late? He gently extric ated the poor child from the animal's claws, saw that she had some severe lacerations on the shoulders and that one arm was dreadfully bitten, and then very tenderly carried her.to the mur Inuring brooklet, where he proceeded to wash her woundsthoroughly, previously to binding them with such bandages as could be improvised. And then his attendants, who had remained at a safe distance during the fray, came up to help him in carrying the wounded girl down to the hamlet, forming a.rude litter out of the branches oftree, cover ing it thickly with leaves, and so bearing her home without causing any increase of pain by rough jolting. What a commotion their arrival caused in the rude hut tenanted by the barbarous mountaineers, and how Ned was worshipped for his prowess in saving the life of the Lumbardar's or Headman's only child! Especially grateful was one rather ill-favoured little man of decidedly mean ...

THE OMNIBUS COMPANY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 28 June 1879

THE OJMlNIBUS COMPANY. TO TES SDrrOE OF THE NERBCEY. Sir.-Some time ago a letter appeared in your paper showing how the residents of Abboteford were inconvenienced by the Omnibus Company withdrawing their Ab botsford line. The writer attributed the withdrawal principally to the public giving too much of their support to the busses--he is perfectly right. I have been a resident of Hotham-hill for many years, and the omnibusses of the Hotham line ran to the Flemington-bridge for about three years. I am sure they were generously supported, for few of the residents would ride in a cab. In fact, sir, the majority of the riders on this line were from the bridge, it was so handy for those going to Hotham from Flemington, or vice versa, as well as to the city. Our reward for thus supporting the busses is the shortening of the Hotham line by nearly a mile. Yes, about a month ago, the busses ceased running to the bridge. I suppose they thought the people here would be content to walk to them....

THE MUSIC OF THE FUTURE. (THE QUEEN) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 28 June 1879

THE MUSIC OF THE FUTURE. AovT foity years ago rumours were rife in high musical circles that two distinguished artists 'were about, to visit Enigland, whose status and talent would create a revolution, in the chief phases of lyric art-that the lady was gifted with an extraordinary compass of voice, well cultivated,-possessing too, a. greater gift than either-a 'soul-to express and bring to light long-hidden treasures :of. expression and feeling, that her - rbther-for they were brother and sister-was equally gifted, being a composer of singular refine ment, and a novel treatment of musical phases, consecutive fifths, and difficult manipulations, were in his hands, to become simple chords of wondrous melody : In fact they were. to be the founders of a-new school of art, that would surpass all previous light; in short, they.were destined to be the initiative introducers of the music of the future. But the best-laid plots of men or mice are, at all times, shat tered-by- the simplest met...

PUBUSHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omrnia Vincit. SATURDAY, JUNE 28, 1879. As the Municipal alections draw near our local politics are beginning to attract more attention. There are not at present, so far as we are aware, any burning questions agitating the minds of the ratepayers, consequently there may be little or no excitement relative to the return of the candidates-not but what it is, as much as ever, the im perative duty of the burgesses to select only such men who are well qualified to attend to the Municipal and Shire mat ters with that wisdom and prudence they ever require. It happens, unfortunately, however, in this democratic community that only too often the unlearned and incapable, with an overweening confi dence in their own ability, thrust them selves forward to occupy positions which true modesty (if they were bles sed with such) would lead them to un derstand should only be filled by better fitted and more deserving men.
