KATIE'S CHOICE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 2 March 1878

KATIE'S CHOICE. rao0 Pa lrM Hra "Ln. The crimson grew deeper on her cheeks when Katie followed her annt to the drawing-room. It yet wanted a few minutes of eight o'clock, and, when Mrs. Parsons had disposed her self quietly in an easy-chair, with her eyes closed, Katie could settle to neither books normusc, butwandered restlessly to and fro. It was a still, mild even ing, with a faint haze overlhaning the distant hills, and a purple twilight fall ing from the sky. Katie threw a shawl ovei her shoulders and wandered down through the gardens to the river, and then, tempted to continue her walk, and urged onwards by a timid fear of meeting Grantly which almost con quered her contradictory desire to see him, she left her uncle's garden and strolled slowly along the path that bor dered the river. With a graver face than K itie Par sons had ever worn before, she came in si.ht of the ferry, and p ased for an instant before turning to retrace her steps. As she stood there in the fast purpli...

THE FALL OF THE TURKISH EMPIRE' THE DRYING UP OF THE EUPHRATES. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 2 March 1878

THE FALL OF THE TURKISH EiMPIRIE* THE DRFING UP OF THE EUPHRATES. AT the Presbyterian Church Napier-street, the Rev. e. Hamilton, Moderator of the Assembly of the Church of Scotland, on the 24th instant, delivered a lecture on the above subject, taking his text from Revela tions xvi, 12. The intention of the lecturer was to lay before his auditors the extra ordinary fulfilment of the Word of God in recent events. He said it was admitted on all hands by the interpreters of prophecy that the pouring out of the sixth vial pre dicted the wasting and destruction of the Turkish empire. Previous to the pouring out of the sixth vial, the seals were opened and the trumpets blown. At an advanced period in the history of the church rose Mohammedanism in Arabia. Mohammed, who was called the false prophet, was born in Mecca, in the year 570, and belonged to a tribe of Arabians known as the Koreish ites. Time went on, and in the year 622 he began the preach, but in 669 he was comp.-lled to take r...

EVELENA'S SONG. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 2 March 1878

EVELENA'S SONG. Oh! turn thy waters back again, And flow to yonder shbre That wakes such happy mem'ries when I think of days of yore. Oh carry back the message now To him so far away, And clear the shadows from my brow, Like mist in morning's ray: And go where gloomy Macedon - Lies lhwering, bleak and dim., A coronet of clouds upon His. hoary head so grim. Yes, turn thy waters back again And flow to yonder shore And tell my love rm longing when I'll see his face once more For sure am I he will not stay When he can meet me here, . Nor willhe linger by the way, But haste my heart to cheer. Nor will Campaspe stay his course, Nor rivers fast or wide. But swift to me his way he'll force To rest him at my side. Then turn thy waters back again And flow to yonder shore, And tell my love rm longing when Ill see his face once more. One eve she sat and sang this song alone, For to the forest Gordon had gone forth At .arl- morn, and now she waited there Till he returned, to welcome him, and giv...

SPASM I. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 2 March 1878

Speasx I. AFTra an absence of about six years, many circumstances occurred that urged me to return to Paris. The cause of my having to leave Paris in the first inst ance, was that one of those great sorrows had fallen upon me, which break down the prospects of a whole life. One of the worst possible of afflictions had suddenly, and with painful abruptness, torn me from my friefids, had separated me, and that finally, as far as I was concerned, from all those charming, every-day habit; that, link by link, form the pleasant chain, the delightful bond of union, that joins our existence to that of our lored and our intimate -associates. Events that I need not mention, as they are foreign to the purpose of this sad story, had compelled me to leave my home, and that without any prospects or a possibl- happiness in store for me on my return to it. In leaving, I had said " Good-by" to no one. I felt that my existence was more than a suspended one, I felt that it was a broken one. one shatte...

SIGNS OF THE TIMES, OR THE VICTORLAN FREE CHURCH OF ENGLAND. Br N. KINSMA. The following is the first of a series of lectures delivered in the Park-street church, on Wednesday evening last: The subject of my lecture is the Victorian Free Church of England, as compared with the Established and United Church of England and Ireland, which is her proper designation, for in the year 1801 the Established Churches of England and Ireland were united into one body by an Act of Parliament, and for the last 300 years the forms have continued much as they now are. The sulbject is one of great importance and deep interest to the religious world, and had not the matter been forced upon me I never should have publicly come before an audience to give a lecture on the subject. I must take it for granted that you are aware that I am a m nister of the Victorian Free Church of England, and the representative of the Free Church of England in Victoria, having seceded from the Established and United Churc...
