Lot me try once more to bring the whole scone vividly before the reader. Night, starry and beautiful, with a broad low moon soee through palms.

COUNTRY LIFE. (CHURCHMAN'S SHILLING MAGAZINE.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 8 July 1876

COUNTRY LIFE. (a?nancus'N surILLtNO MAAZIni:.) Tik thoughts of a garden lead us to wild flowers. Oh, how much pleasure does one derive from a knowledge of the inhabitants of our fields and hedges| The least that one can do is to nacquiro the names of such. And then if a little of the rural folk-lore be added, what an interest does it give to a country walk. I am afraid that I should startle some of my readers if I were to tell them that the old folio of Gerard's Herbal is an almost indispensable volume in a country library. Of country sports I can Nay nothing. I neither hunt, shoot, nor fish. But I can quite understand thelr charm to those who do. Person ally I cannot endure the thought of inflicting pain, and it is possible I question our. right to do so. To suo the dying eye of a poor bird, or to heoar the cry of a wounded hare, is to mno so intolerable that I would foregb all the pleasure of the so-?alled sport. I have boon told that a fox rather likes the fun of being hunted, bu...

MODERN MARRIAGE. [NEW YORK TRIBUNE.] [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 8 July 1876

MODERN N.I(ARRIA GE. C[NEw YORK0 TBRDIE.J ONE Or two incidents in last week's exchanges, which appear trivial enough to the caisual reader, bear so directly on a deep-rooted eyji of our domestic life, that it is worth our. while to examine into their causes and results.' One is'an account of the suicide of a young mar ried woman, "the cause an unfortunate attachment;" tlhe other the shooting of a gay young fellow 'by a girl to whom he had paid attention for some years, but whom he had lately deserted to marry a fairer and wealthier rival. The young lady was, of course, acquitted on the ground of insanity, and the man is in a fair way of recovery from his flesh wound. The local papers' makoe hist to exculpptp him from all blame, "as no. engagement existed between the par ties." In neither of these cases was the attachment of a criminal nature; they suffered in nothing but the' matter of feeling, which is so intangible and. weightless a thing in public esteem that only insanity can ex...

M1?. KEELE AT TTHE LONDONDERRIY. A numerous and influential meeting of the ratopayers of Darling Ward was held on Wednesday evening, at the Londondorry hotel, such meeting having been convened for the purpose of hearing Mr. H. Keelo's views on municipal matters, and for form. ing a committee to secure his election. The chair was taken by Mr. Haskins. The candidate entered very fully into the subject of local affairs, and was listened to throughout with great attention. He ex pressed himself in favor of the greatest economy in the administration of the funds of the ratepayers, compatible with neces sary expenditure in the croation and main tenance of public works and improvements,' and efficiency on the part of the officers of the Council. He considered, in. order to effect this, that during the next ,year a is. 8d. rate was required.
