ST. JOHN'S CHURCH. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 5 May 1883

ST. JOHN'S CHURCH. The Rev. H. F. Scott, on Sunday evening, took for his text Mark, II. 27., on which he based his observation on the subject of "Suriday, an?d the bpenitig of our Public Iristi tutions." He said that he was induced toselect the passage because the matter of Sunday ob servance was suddenly thrust upon public atten tion, and it could not li out df place for a public teacher to direct the minds of his hearers towards, the formatidn of an opinion, with a view of infiriunciing their judgment to rightly understand what Scripture and expediency de manded under the 'circumstances. He could not eipecf thet lie would speak approvingly to all, but his effort would be to merit at their hands the commendation that both candour and charity characterised his utterances. The rev. gentlemrian then rocceded to demonstrate that the establishment. of the Sabbath was coeval with man's existence, ahd Was hot a mere Jewish ordinance which was repealed by the establishment of 'the Christia...

A BOY'S ESSAY ON MOSQUITOES. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 5 May 1883

A BOY'S ESSAY ON MOSQUITOES. Mosquitoes is an animal that flies at you and bites you worse than our tarrier dogs, they stick their beaks into you and bum round your ears at night. Bill Smith hit one that rose a lump on his nose, with his fist and gave him self a black eye, the muskatey ran up his nose and stung him in the funell making his nose as big as three of the ones he wore on other week days. I hate misskaties, there was a hole in my trousers where a nail was in as I clomb over Skinner's fence, and the mosqeetious found it out and I could not sit down on one side for a week, uncle lammed me for it with a strap and then I couldn't sit on one side better than the other, I saw five muskittys on his fouread next night as he was sleeping on the sofy, and left them, cos he slammed me the day before. Bill Smith says that skeetors don't bite, but I nose better, they draws blood, and makes lumps, for our parson when the whisky was done sat down considering, and wasn't he wild when he ...

"THE WONDERFUL LOVE." TO THE EDITOR OF THE INDEPENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 5 May 1883

" THE WONDERFUL LOVE." TO THIE EDITOR OF THE INDEPENDENT. SiR,-The next point requiring explanation, : which has been presented under the above heading, is " Sin is a moral leprosy, and we are all born lepers," therefore as. infants are born lepers, infants are born sinners. I con fess that Mr. Soper is not singular in holding such views, fori I find one of his brethren, a pastor also, writing within the last six months, and speaking for the Baptists as a body, saying "The Baptists hold that all children dying be fore the age of choice, are saved not by faith, not by repentance, nor yet baptism, but by the infinite love of the Eternal Father, without complying with any conditions whatever." I find a class who are not Baptists agree with them that infants are sinners, who differ from them regarding the unconditional character of their salvation. Their catechism speaks of infants as " being born in originalsin and under the wrath of God." The catechism of another' class reads, "The si...

"TRUTHJSEEKER." TO TIIE EDITOR OF TIIHE INDEPENDENT. SIR,---Will you be kind enough to grant me a small space in your colusins to say that if my memory does not mislcad me, on the 7th of April list a certain person, purporting to be a "truth-seeker," asked t.Ir Soper for e.plana tions on certain portions of a setmon written by the latter gentleman ? On reading this I certainly was under the impression thlt it was atrIp' to draw the Rey. fMr So;cr into a religious war ip the public columns. Io this I was not deceived. The ansswers would have been very simple, but the Iev. Mr Soper I think hit the right 'nail on the head when he said iin reply he h"d no time for such coitro versy--his theology ml;ht be understood if tiBscy.w t s lqaS m!o as the lo:'-al Hall, etc, At least this was the subst asce f it, and: taat the queries seemied to him to lo from a quibbler rather than a " truth-seelker."

NOXIOUS TRADES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE INDEPENDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 5 May 1883

NOXIOUS TRADES. TO TIE EDITOR OF THE INDEPENDENT, SsIR,-In reference to the vexed question of the so.called "noxious trades" in and around Footscray, I beg the favour of a little of your space to give myown experience. At the time when the cholera (or as it was then called, the '.plague"), raged in England in 1848, I was resident at Lambeth, the very centre of the bone mills, starch yards, and fellmongeries of the metropolis, and therefore do not speak without authority. At that time Dr. Lever, the leading physician of Guy's Hospital, Lon don, found that, curious to say, while the soeurge was devastating those parts of the city and suburbs which svere lookell uopn is bFiig tl.e nsosf aristo&iatic and "salubrfput -as-'ah evidenced by th flyin~ of the blacL flag at Wandsworth, Richmond, Twickenham, etd.,-? their were no symptoms of the disease in thp neighbosirhood of these factories.

Our. olidayi New South Wales. PARTr VI. rSunday morning dawns, and the cruel tor mentors of-the, sweet-blooded visitors -resort again to their hidden crevices, ready for another night's attack. : We feel weak, languid, and washed out. A cold .bath sets us up, so far as to go through the.breakfast with some degree of relish, more especially our partner-the fish devourer-who does ample justice to his former reputation, and makes havoc amongst the con tents of the plates containing the products of the sea, winding up with a gallon or two of shrimps, the shells of which form a sort of cata comb round his plate, mingled with the heads and tails of his former victims. Too hot to go to church. The balmy breeze from the sea invites us, in terms too loving to be disregarded, and so, with our Gaelic cice rone, we get on board a fine steamer for Manly Beach. I need not attempt again to describe the varied magnificent marine views displayed to our gaze as we sailed down the opposite shore of th...
