NOTES AND COMMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 29 July 1876

N?OTEB AND COMMENTS. DY COBSOPOLITE,, ; Orinumberless evils which vex mankind at the present day, the "social evil," as it is politely designated; stands pro.eminent. Press, and, clergy are up in arms against 'this' monstrous fistula which is eating; its way into1 the very oore of society, and making its presence felt; but all they have done. and are doing is as nought since the authorities who pretend to uphold law and order do so little to strengthen their hands in' the work of reformation. That the evil is rapidly spreading I can readily believe after perusal of the numberless letters in, the daily,press relative to it, as well as the sad cases of depravity which have come under my notice here. Walkout any evening after dark, in Bourke or Collins streets, visit the well-light thoroughfares of Lons dale or Swanston streets, and what do you see but courtezansof the lowest order, loudly conversing in language interlarded with profane expressions and lewd ejaculations? Now, if the so...

TRUE AND SPURIOUS PATRIOT. (PEACE SOCIETY'S PAPERS.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 29 July 1876

TRUE AND SPURIOUS PATRIOT. (rmAos sooiETY's PArES.) TLE term "Peace-at-any-price," is one often used, and almost always perverted in its sense or application; for, like many other opprobrious epithets, this nickname is the embodiment of a gross falsehood-or, to put. it imore mildly, it is a more piece of claptrap, designed to turn attention away from the true issue. The party to whom this term is often applied 'have nevei advocated a truck ling, worthiless, spiritless policy. What they have pleaded, and do plead. for, is, that the just and concilatory policy which is regarded as truly honorable in private life should be maintained and carried out between nations. Such a policy is truly called spirited. We know that it often necessitates far more true codirago than the policy of bluster. Speaking from the politician's point of vieir-and it was against such that this nickname was first levelled-Mr. Jacob Bright recently expounded his faith on this subject, He said, "he was in favor of...
