The Mercury. PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY, JULY 19, 1879. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 19 July 1879

PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY, JULY 19, 1879. TEax Coffee Palace in Smith-street is rapidly;. approaching . completion, and: will be opened for business in about three weeks' time. If the establishment is conducted oni purely commercial principles, ,W* may safely prophesy-a succdaful career,: but:,i the business has to be mixed --up and interfered with by prayer meetings, services- of song, and lectures, we may predict a speedy collapse. An establishment of the kind is needed, for although there re plenty of public-houses in both Collingwood and Fitzroy, there is scarcely a house that can be fairly called an hotel or tavern. Where is there one that a traveller or business man can go to and be served with a decent chop or steak, a plate of cold meat, or a cupof coffee? If a traveller is in the Western or North Eastern Districts, or in Gippsland, we speak from experience, he can go into, an hotel, where he will find a snug par lor, a commercial room, and a din...

NOTES AND COMMENTS. 16/7/79. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 19 July 1879

NOTES AND COMMENTS. Br CosHOPOLITrE. 1617179. "Now is the winter of our discontent," Rain, mud, slush, and grumbling on all sides. Batepayers in the outlying districts of the suburbs finding fault with the councils for not making the streets and doing certain works much needed. Shopkeepers growling at the lack of customers and cash. Cabmen lamenting the absence of fares, and longing for the time when ladies will take an afternoon's airing. Policemen cowering in doorways and letting the juveniles who play pitch - and - toss severely alone. Workmen rushing with all haste to their employment, and with the same haste hurrying home again when the day's work is completed. The "unemployed" sending deputations to ministers praying for work-hun dreds hoping they might never get it. Children suffering from whooping cough, catarrab, and other infantile ailments. And last, though not least, the good housewives grumbling about the non-drying of clothes, and the continual dirtying of floors by mu...

INDUSTRIAL SCHOOL CHILDREN. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 19 July 1879

INDUSTBRIAL SCHOOL CHILDREN. TO THE EDTiOR OF THE MERCURY. "Sm.-The Gentleman who wrote "Men with whom I meet" might do some good by giving a good trenchant article on those men (query, brutes), who foist their children on the industrial schools, and then just as soon as the child gets into some way of earning a trifle, to go whining and begging the child's first hard earnings. - " See, your poor father has hardly got a shoe to his foot, can't you let me have half-a-crown; your master gave yon five shillings on Mon day, what have you done with that?" I saw a mother pointing to something in a shop window and heard her say to her own child, "couldn't you get me that." Yours etc; SPECTATOR. L[t will be seen by a paragraph in an other column-that two children were sent -tolth Industrial shools,- from the Fitzroy bench, on -Monday' last, under similar cir umnstances.-Ed.]

DISTRESS IN COLLINGWOOD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 19 July 1879

DISTRESS IN COLLTNGWOOD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERCURY. Smi:--From the personal acquaintance I have had with a few of the Collingwood City Councillors. I think they would not up hold what was a fabrication, or censure any effort to lessen the sorrows or distress of those now suffering from want of employ ,nent,and.therefore, I attribute it to an error in their judgment of the course the Relief Committee and Ihave pursued that has been the cause of the manifest prejudice and hard sayings in the Council (as reported in the yapers). The poor and unemployed go not to their houses-neither do they see much of them as they pass through the streets to busi mess--tut as reasonable men they must know that such men as the Collingwood IMinisters of the Gospel, six of whom are in the Collingwood Relief Committee, the Missionary and Bible women who visit from house to house, and professional as well as other gentlemen interested in the welfare of the poor, are in a far better position to judge of ...

REPORT. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 19 July 1879

S REPORT The Committee of the Fitzroy Arti sans' School of Design, in presenting their report for the year 1878-9,hsave pleasure in expressing their satisfaction at the continued success of the School, and the good order of the pupils during the past year. The School has been in existence above nine years, and now ranks as one of the largest of the Schools of Design in the Colony. It is believed to be in a more efficient state than at any previous period of its history, having a larger staff of highly-com petent teachers, who are furnished with the best apparatus that canbe got, and who strive by regularity of atten dance and zeal in their work to enlist the sympathies of their pupils. The Committee are very muchpleased' with the Ladies' Class, which is well attended, and which bids fair to out strip in numbers the other class. The evident interest taken by the pupils in. their work is extremely gratifying to the Committee, and, at the same time, is an evidence of that esprit de cor...

A FEW WORDS ABOUT CRICKET AND FOOTBALL. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 19 July 1879

A FEW WORDS ABOUT CRICKET AND FOOTBALL. To the editor of the Mercury. Sir,-I was very much surprised on read- ing a communication in your issue of the 12th instant, with the above title. I beg leave to differ with some of the statements contained therein, in regard to the brut- ality of the latter game. I have been an on- looker at the principal matches of this and other seasons, and have never witnessed such scenes as your contributor refers to. The rules of football have been amended year by year, to prevent, if possible, all un- necessary roughness, in proof of which I would point out the scarcity of accidents among our leading players, and also when we consider the numbers who play the game. Why sir; there is no sport popular among Australians without its spice of danger, among others I would refer to, steeplechasing, hunting, shooting, rowing, swimming, and even the quiet game of cricket. I can hardly think that "Ped" was serious in proposing rounders as a substitute. Hoping yo...

BANQUET TO MR. GRAY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 19 July 1879

BANQUET TO MR. GRAY. A number of the gentlemen who were connected witb the committees, in the interests of the cindidature' of Mr. Gray, for the representation of Fitzroy at the late election, invited that gentle man to a dinner, at the Liverpool Arms, Brunswick-street, on Monday evening last. Coincillor Mr. James Holden, occupied the chair. The usual Loyal toasts having been disposed of, the chairman proposed the health of Mr. Gray, which was drank amid enthu- siastic cheers. The chairman- then, before taking his seat, stated that the most pleasant part of his duties was yet to be performed. They had met together to do honor to a gentleman whom every one respected and esteemed. After the last election, a few friends met together to consider what would be the best way to recognise the esteem in which Mr. Gray is held amongst us. The committee thought the best thing they could do was to present him with something useful and yet pleasant to his feelings, viz.-A gold watch, locket and ...

HURLING. COLLINGWOOD V. HEIDELBERG. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 26 July 1879

HURLING. -9--·---- COLLNrsGOWOOD V. HEIDELBERG. (BY ONE OF TREx.) The meeting of these clubs has been looked forward to for some time past with interest by the admirers of hurling, as both teams possess the advantage of having some real good players amongst their re spective ranks. Saturday last was ap pointed the convincing day, and it was in tended that the Heidelberg racecourse should be the convincing ground, but this pretty little spot of ground has been taken under by the Shire Council of Heidelberg, and these careful custodians of the rate payer's property refused all access to it. Now this certainly seems beyond the com prehension of my dull mind, how the only available spot of ground in the district that is set apart for recreative purposes should be summarily closed, and notices posted that persons found thereon will be prose cuted. Perhaps it has been set apart by the Minister of Lands for some special pur pose. Hurling might not be aristocratic enough for the gentry of t...

REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 26 July 1879

E VIEW Our American cousins are evidently determined to do a trade with us next year. We have received a copy of the American Exporter, an advertising and illustrated price list of American goods, published by Messrs. Root and Tinker, Duane-street, New York, - which deserves more than a passing notice. Articles of almost every de scription are advertised, and many articles such as fencing-wire, horsehoe nails, pumps, weighbridges, electro plated goods, and calicoes, which have hitherto been considered a specialty for Great Britain, are now boldly ad vertised by the Americans. One thing we can safely say :-the work is splen didly printed, and admirably illustrated. Further than that, the literary work is excellent, and has evidently been com piled with the greatest care from the best and most reliable sources. One of the best views yet published of the Melbourne Exhibition building is printed in it, but there is no wonder at that, for in one corner in almost micro scopical lines we c...

SIBERIAN EXILES. [CINCINNATI COMMERCIAL.] [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 26 July 1879

SIBERIAN EXILES. [CINCINNATI CO?IERICAL.] Sonm of those liberty-loving Russian students who insisted on the right of petition are to be banished to Siberia for their impudence in thinking they bad rights the authorities should res pect. In order that foreign notions 2night no longer call the subjects of the -Czar a barbarous people, capital punish mnent was abolished, but in its stead was substituted a system that to the victims is more painful. With few exceptions banishment to Siberia is Elow, but nevertheless certain, death. Strangers are informed that arbitrary transportations ceased long ago. The Russian will, however, admit the truth when they are aware that the truth is known. They will then say that nearly every person transported to Siberia ad plits the jutice of the punishment. This is true, for the only chance of obtaining a pardon, or of being allowed to com is unicate with friends, lies in a written confession of guilt.- The poor fellows -who refuse to give this are nev...
