CORRESPONDENCE. We do not necessarily endorso the opinions of our correpondents. LARRIKINS AGAIN. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 8 July 1876

CORRESPONDENCE. We do not necessarily ondorso the opinions of our correspondents. LARRIKINS AGAIN. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MEROURY. Sin-I wish to direct the attention of the police on Sunday duty, to the Common School, No. 812, in Perry street, Colling. wood. There is a mob of young larrikins not "raggod rascals" who amuse themselves there, before and after school hours, by throwing stones at old men and women as they pass by. On Sunday week I gave two of them in charge to constable Charleton, who politely took their names and addresses, and then directed me to take out summonses against them. Last Sunday they were worse than ever. Yours, etc., JOHN SHORT.

THEBES. [OUR OWN FIRESIDE.] [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 8 July 1876

THEBES. [our OWN FIRESIDE.J THEBES, the ancient capital of Upper Egypt, "the htiludred-gated city," in the province of 'the same name, flourished in its greatest might and glory in the time of tRameses the Great, fourteen centu. ries before Christ. It is the "No " of Soriptude; 'the passage in Jer. xlvi. 25, rendered the ."multitude of No" should be translated' "Ammon of No," or the seat or dwelling of the god Ammon.. Several places however seem to be thus designated' in Scripture. The ruins of Thebes are situated 300 miles S.S.E. of 'Cairo, in a valley formed by the Arabian and Libyan mountains. They occupy a space, on both banks of the Nile, of about nine miles in length and eight miles in breadth. The city was twenty-seven or thirty miles in circum ference. Its site is now occupied by several villages. Stephens says: "The valley of the Nile was not large enough to contain it, and its extremities rested upon the bases of the mountains on either side." "The whole of this groat exte...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 8 July 1876

TO TIlE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. SSIn.-Would you kindly oblige a number of citizens by calling the attention of the authorities to the mob of larrikins that congregate at the corner of Ryrio and Smithlstreets, who are perfect pests to this neighborhood and a nuisance to passers by. It was only last Monday night that I wont out to remonstrate with them for pelting a great number of stones and other missiles on to my place, when the ruffianly lot attacked me, and before I could got clear of them, I received several bruises about the body and some slight abrasions about the face. Therefore, I think that it is high time they were compelled to quit such a public thoroughfare as Smith street, before they do more mischief, or I shall be forced to take the law into my own hands by maim ing some of them with something more weighty and forcible than flesh and bone. Yours, &c., D. BIRTLES. 380 Smith street.

SPANIELS. (QUEEN.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 8 July 1876

SIPANIELS. (QouEEN.) :OuR women are in danger of becoming 'tyrants rather than slaves, and the deniands made by the weakcr are grovw lirg almost as excessive as hlave been in, foretime the requirements enforced by the stronger. 'But, with all this, the nature which some call womanly, and ottiers .paqiel-like: still exists among us, .Leaven be .praiised 1-and ,we have yet left to us a few low-voiced, gentle, tender-hearted women who find their highest joy in self-suppression and af fection, in giying up theirown desires for the good of:,others, and devoting themselves to the service of those they love. Neither rancour nor revenge enters in'to'thll soul of her whom her deriders call a spaniel, her admirers womanly. Even where she has been ill-treated she can forgive; and the divine precept of seventy-times-seven sseems to her ii law of loveliness by which greater. things are to. be' attained than the childish pleasure of mainifesting "a high spirit;" 'and a determination "not to be pu...

BABIE S. . S(aivzavooL 'LSAD R.y) WERE, it needful to define a.baby, we don't think it could be done-that is, with ixhythingq approaching to lexico: raibhical dcorrectness. As 'there iro more things in heaven and earth than are dreamt of in current philosophy (though we, have made sone' strides, hero and, there, since the days of my lord Hamlet); so, in the maitter'of babies there are more things than can be brought within the.compass of accurate definition. Of course, everybodly knows what a baby is supposed to be. You manipulate him in parts, generally;'a'nd are accustomed to criticise whatever portion of him happens to come upper. most. You take him to pieces, as it weore; and elucidate your impressions of him, bit by bit-but information obtained in this fashion is apt to be rather unreliable.

ON THE TOP OF A COACH. (mFAMILY ERALD.) ,Since leaving 'Wytheburn the road had been. downhill all the way. - On the right hand the giant crags: and reaches of Helvellyn loodred dimly in the dark ness; on the left the land "loped away abrtiptly to the shores of Thirlmere Lake., It was'a perilous path, and they hhd coine down vetry slowly. The guard with a lantern walked at one of the leader's heads, an ostler from the Wytheburn inn -at the other. As they crept downwards the snow became deeper and deeper, till in the. valley it was found to reach half way up the * coach wheels. Their :progress for the last hour had been mere crawling along, it till a drift across a slight hollow in the r' 'road brought them to a full stop. "Do you thiik therois any danger?" whispered Hilarie, fearfully, and cling ing to Mr. Buchanan's arm with both NI hands, in eitirp' forgetfulness of their late deadly quarrel. , "I fancy not; I will ask."

THE RELIGION OF AMITY AND THE RELIGION OF ENMITY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 15 July 1876

THE RELIGION OF AMITY AND THE RELIGION OF ENMITY. IT would clear up our ideas about mrany things if ve distinctly recognized the truth that we have two religions. Pri mitive humanity has but one. The humanity of the remote future will have but one. The two are opposed; and we who live midway in the course of civilization havo to believe in both the religion.of, enmity and the religion of amity. Of course, I do not mean that ,these are both called religions. Here I am nobt speaking of names, I am speaking simply of things. Nowadays, men do not pay the same verbal homage to the code which enmity dictates that they do to the code which amity dic tates. The list occupies, the place of honor, but :tho real homage is paid in large measure, if not in the larger mea sure, to' the code dictated by enmity. The religion of enmity nearly all men actually believe ; the religion of amity must of them merely believe they be. lieve. In some discussion-say, about international affairs-remind them' o...

THE ADVANCE OF RUSSIA IN CENTRAL ASIA. (TIMES.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 15 July 1876

THE ADVANCE OF RUSSIA IN CENTRAL ASIA. (TIMES.) THERE is no subject on which a public man, conscious of the responsibilities of speech, will be more inclined to keep silent than the relations between Russia and England in Central Asia, and a study of the debate raised by Mr. Bail lie Cochrane last night must confirm the wise in their resolution to abstain from what may be mischievous and cannot be useful. Be quiet, and keep your eyes open, is the real lesson titught by the discussion. We doubt whether there was a single speech that had not better been left unspoken. iome good may, perhaps, arise from Mr. Disraeli's, buit this is principally because it may servo to correct the false impression created by his speech on the third reading of the Royal Titles Bill a month ago. In his peroration on that occasion the Prime Minister defended the mea sure becauso of its bearing on the ad vance of the Russian frontier towards our own in Central Asia. All who heourd It thought that more Imprud...
