THE ONE-HANDED SER-JEANT AND THE STUBBORN CAPTAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 27 May 1876

THE ONE-HANDED SER JEANT AND THE BTUBBORN CAPTAIN. SERJEANT .MANOHOT took his quid from his mouth, wiped his lips with the back of his right hand-the only one that remained to him-aand com menced thus:- "In those times, my children, Frenchmen did not fight as they do now, in the streets, and against, their brethren-they fought outside, for the honor and against the' enemies of France. A man was neither aristo nor reac, neither red republican nor communist. He was a Frenchman, that was all; was it not much clearer and more simple? Well, then, on the 6th of November, a little after the battle 'of Viazma, it was colder, I verily believe, than i' had ever been in any ciiuntry in' the world. We beat a retreat, not before the Russians, ' who always, kept at. a prudent distance from our encampments, but before a frost more terrible,,in that terrible country, than Riussians, .Aus trians, and Bavarians all "encounritred together. For several days we had been assured that we approached Sinole...

OLLA PODRIDA. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 3 June 1876

OLLA PODRIDA. A rather serious accident occurred to Miss Mackay, daughter of the poundkooper, Back Crook, whilst riding on Saturday afternoon. She was proceeding along the White Hills road, in the direction of Sand. hurst, when the horse suddenly started and came in violent contract with a waggon, which was proceeding in the opposite direction. The horse fell, throwing Miss Mackay with groat force to the ground. A man named Charles Bracoy, alias Walters, formerly an informer in the em ploy of a city inspector, was sentenced at the Sandhurst City Police Court to nine months' imprisonment, with hard labour, for having imposed on persons with intent to defraud. He had represented himself as a dog-tax collector, and collected about 50 registration foes, with which he decamped. The Executive of New South Wales have decided that the law shall take its course in the case of Michael Conley, for murdering his wife at Tamworth, and in that of George Pitt, for murdering Mrs. Martin, at Gunta w...

ENGLISH ITEMS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 3 June 1876

ENGLISH ITEMS, Telegrams from from St. Petersburg, proceeding from authentic sources, confirm the report of the abdication of the Czar. The Czarewitch will be entrusted with the regency and full sovereign powres during the summer. The mystery surrounding the abdication of the Czar, and the eleva tion of the Czarewitch to the Russian Imperial throne as Regent, has raised the impression very generally in diplomatic circles, both here and in Paris, Berlin, and Vienna, that the Czar is indisposed to ac cept the responsibilities which devolve upon Russia in the pending Eastern complications. The Times has a special from Cairo stat ing that letters have been received there from Colonel Gordon, dated at Fatioo, the 3rd of February. The expedition was well. Colonel Gordon announced that he is coming to Cairo, and expects to reach England in October. The loss of the Victoria, from Shields, for San Franciso, is now proven beyond doubt. She had on board besides Captain Jones, whose body was fo...

THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE. (SATURDAY REVIEW) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 3 June 1876

TIHE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE. (sATURDAY a~VI1W) ONE kind of fine lady mother certainly leaves her children to be brought up by nurses without much assistanco from her oven for the show-hour in the drawingrpom. They are circumstance of her existence which she takes care shall give her no trouble-conditions of her married life which represents.. a certain loss of time and so much per sonal annoyance, reduced by wise man agement to a minimum; and she hasno desire to inflict on her friends IL corv&e reopudiated by herself. So, far her visiting world has cause for gratitude. But the mother whose maternal instinct is largo and her reasoning fiaculties small; who prides herself on her love for her offspring, and insists that her acquaintances shall partake in her glory adopts the foolish plan of having her children brought down to see all her visitors, and of'converting her drawing. room into ia small bear garden, where everyone is uncomfortable alike. The children are the axis on which ...

SATURDAY, JNNE, 3, 1876. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 3 June 1876

SATURDAY,JNNE, 3, 1876. THE Councillors of the City of Colling wood are evidently of the opinion 'that it is possible to introduce a better class of roadway. than the present macadam ized streets. They have invited the Councillors of Fitzroy 'to co-operate with them in laying down a portion of Smith street with asphalte to test it as a substitute for the present surface metal. We certainly must commend the councillors on the step they have taken. With all allowance for the present method of road-making, we must state as our opinion it has very serious drawbacks. It is 'seldomly done in a workmanlike manner, and even where every effort is made to thoroughly finish our macadamized streets there are objections to it which we believe will never be properly over come. The metal laid down is, despite every preventive action, ground by the traffic to an infinitesimally small pow der, which, under the influence of the summer sun and the dry and scorching winds, becomes a choking dust, carri...
