SATURDAY, JUNE, 10, 1876. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 10 June 1876

;SATURDAY, JUNE, 10, 1876. Tan English mail brings us intelligence of interest, but nothing presently exciW ing, but still sufficiently indibative of the coming future probabilities. ?'We have fuller intelligence of the debate in both ,Houses of Parliament on the "Empress" question." The .Government have carried their motion, and now so far'as India is concerned, Her Most Graclous'Majesty of England, becomes Her Imperial Majesty of India. However flattering this may be to the Royal' family, and a section of the com munity, there can be no doubt that throughout Great Britaln there is a widqspread dissatisfaction with the change. British people very, naturally object to anything that even shadows an infringement of their liberties. And certainly the wearers of, the imperial robes, either of ancient or modern times, have done little to recommend the title to a liberty.loving people,. The arguments of Mr. DIsenArt in bringing forward and defending his motion most certainly lacked that f...

FOOTBALL. MELBOURNE V. CARLTON IMPERIAL. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 10 June 1876

FOOTBALL. MELBOURNE V. CARLTON IMPERIAL. The above clubs met, for the first time this season, on the Melbourne ground. The Melbourne won the toss and elected to kick towards the Richmond end. Ford, for the Imperial, kicked of at about twenty minutes past three; the ball was quickly returned by the opposite side, when a sharp tussle ensued, A. Waidron at last skillfully carry- ing the ball out of danger. After some smart play on both sides it was worked down towards the Imperial goal through the agency of Sillett, Freeman, and Ben nies, who were playing a fine forward game. A hot scrimmage followed, Spaven, Swift, Ford, and F. Waldron defending their citadel with the most determined courage. This work was too warm to last very long, for just then one of the Melbourne got a chance for a side shot, which scored one for Melbourne. The ball was quickly sent rolling again, this time hotly in the neigh- borhood of the Melbourne goal, Yates snaking a fierce dash at the "Portals," which seem...
