T. . A.". [MEDICAL EXRINER.j* To give some idea of the enormous trade.that is done in tea, which, we may add, is'shipped from various ports, Fovw Chow, Shanghai, and Canton being the most important, it, may be interesting' here to state that the quantity in stock in this country on the 31st'of January, 1876, was upwards of 105,100,000 lbs., and taking a very rough, estimate of its vdluo:'t. 1'. s per lb., in addition to tlhe 6dil. p lb.

HOLLY. (SCIENCE GOSSIP.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 15 July 1876

HOLLY. (soIEoN oGossrp.) HOLLY (Ilex aguifolium) is an indi genous plant, growing also in warm and.cold countries of Europe, Asia 'and America. Although of slow growth, it attains, in a few instances, a great height, and forms, with care, after some years, handsome hedges. Evelyn had a fine holly hedge at Says Court, and I have seen one on the road from Bir mingham to Acock's Green, about twelve feet high. Tynningham, near Dunbar, boasts the largest holly-bush in Scotland, and at Frensham, in Sur rey, some holly trees reached a height of sixty feet. It is an interesting fact that, whilst the lower leaves are stiff and furnished with spines, which serve to protect the plant from injury from animals and other enemies, the new leaves at the upper part, having no share in the defence of the plant, do not possess this rigid character. The wood is, close and white, and stains well, taking especially a beautiful black. It is used for Tunbridge ware and wood engravers' blocks ; box and pear...

[POLICE. FITZROY-MONDAY, JULY, 10Ti. Before Messrs..Falconer, Mahoney, Ben netts, T. Kidney, and Marsden. Michael Manning, a disreputable, ill looking, dirt-begrimed man was charged with unlawful assault. ' Sarah Read stated that she lived in Fitzroy street, and that on the 5th inst. the prisoner, who is her husband's stepfather, came to her home, burst the door open and broke her things. He came again a day or two .afterwards, broke, the door open smashing up her table and crockery, and then turned and abused her, striking her on the forehead, and bruising her considerably. The prisoner could give no defence. He got one month's imprisonment. He was also fined 40s and 2s 6d costs or 14 days' imprisonment for resisting the policeman who arrested him when he was assaulting Sarah Read.

YAN YEAN WATER SUPPLY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 15 July 1876

YAN YEAN WATER BUPPLY. Tn THE EDITOR OF THE E1WUIlTRT. Sat,-We have several times had brought under our notice an appeal made by the inhabitants of South Preston and Gower. ville to have the water laid on for domestic use, a devoand which we should consider in our estimation requires the attention of the department to which it belongs. From wha)' we can learn there are an ample number of householders to meet the de wands of rates if gonr into properly, Most of the householders have very large families /as we are all aware, require water, and at this present time of the year when they should have plenty in their water tanks they are entirely without, owing to the dryness of the season, and every probability of the ensuing season being very dry. Many of the residents of that locality like many others have been troubled with that dreadful disease which has been so preva lent of late, and we may ask what is the use of appointing health offioers, nulsauce inspectors,, and other officials...

CORRESPONDENCE. We do not necessarily endorse the opinions of our correspondents. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 15 July 1876

CORRESPONDENCE. We do not necessarily entdorse the opinions of our correspondents. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURT. SIa,-Some time ago I happened to be present at a meeting of the Jika Shire Council, and heard Councillor Plant make some very pertinent remarks on the sub ject of the gauge of road metal. He said, "I have had sixteen years'.experience as a road contractor, and I always found that two and a half inch metal sets sooner and wears better than metal of a larger size, and I certainly think that when we con tract for two and a half inch metal it w.ould be as well if we got real two and a half inch instead of getting lumps of stone as large as a sledge hammer." Now, Mr. Editor, I really think that at the time Mr. Plant made use of these remarks he must have had a sort of prophetic vision of the Upper Plenty road between the Junction Hotel and the Church of England, South Preston, in the month of July, 1876, for any person who has occasion to travel that road will see plenty of "l...

POETRY. TIlE ELM AND THE VINE. "UrnoLD my feeble branheos With thy'strong arms, I pray;" Thus to the Elm, her neighbor The Vino-was heard to say; "Elso, lying low and helpless, A weary, lob is mine; Crawled o'er by every reptile, And browsed by hungry kino." The elm was moved to pity; Then spoke the generous tree: "My hapless friend, come hithor, And find support in me." The kindly Elm receiving The grateful Vino's embrace Became with that adornment, The garden's pride and grace; Becamo the chosen covert In which the wild birds sing; Became the love of shopherds, And glory of the Spring. 0 beautiful examplo For youthful minds to hood!

BRAIN NUTRITION. [FOOD AND FUEL REFORMER.] [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 15 July 1876

BRAIN NUTRITION. [FOOD AND FUELREFORMER.] TiE brain, in common with the body,' frequently suffers from defective nutri-' tioh to an extent that we are not cog nisant of. This loss of brain power may not-only result from actual deprivation of food, but from the.hurried rush of business not allowing sufficient relax ation to ,the body to allow it to digest the food taken, and pass into the system. for the renovation of the waste of the tissues. Those who Have 'never reflected on' and studied the influenco of a well arranged diet and, sound digestion on the health of the brain and the mental function, may obtain some 'idea' of its extent'by the examination of 'the details iof extreme cases. Starvation, it is well known, often terminates in ferocious Idelirium, as in the case of castaways at sea, but which, if not too far gone, are easily curable by a nourishing diet, cautiously administered. More especially at the period of rapid growth' obfthe body the mental 'funti6ns are weakened an...

The Mercury. PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY, JULY, 15, 1876. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 15 July 1876

PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY, JULY, 15, 1876. WE have had the suspicion on our minds, since the deputation from North and South waited upon Mr. GILLIES in reference to the Outer Circle line, that the Government were endeavoring to come to terms with the Hobson's Bay Railway Company in reference to the purchase of that line. From remarks which have appeared in some of the morning dailies, we are somewhat con-. firmed in this suspicion. Not but what we think if the Government could obtain the possession of the Hobson's Bay Railway Company's property, it would in many respects be a desirable acquisition, and the direct line to Gipps land could at once be constructed, and indeed would be preferable even to the marking of the Outer Circle line. For, with all that may be said in'favor of the last named line, it is questionable if it would be so serviceable as the bringing of the Gippsland traffic into Flinders street station. But, on the other hand, the Governmen...
