The Mercury. PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY, Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY, AUG. 5, 1876. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 5 August 1876

PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY,-AUG. 5, 1876. TaNDu~s having lately been called for by the Commissioner of Railways for the making of eight locomotive engines and tenders, three tenders were sent in, the lowest being that of the Ph?onix Foundry Company, Ballarat, for the sum of £22,812. It is satisfactory to know that the sum to be paid for the manufacture of these , locomotives will be spent in the colony, and on colonial workmen. In Now South Wales some few months back tenders of a like character were called for, eighteen locomotives being then required for the existing railway4lines. Strange to say not a single manufacturer sent in a tendr or' even appeared to care to undertake they'construction of these importaut works. The cause of this wasdoubtless due to the frequent re currence of strikes and the impossibility of many large manufacturing firms depending on the men they employed. Theterms of the latter, both as to labor and 'remuneration, were consider...

KEEPING UP APPEARANCES (OUR OWN FIRESIDE.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 5 August 1876

KEE?PING UP APPEARANCES (oUu owN FIREsIDE.) OnE of the most demoralizing practices of modern refinement is the "large party" system. People cram their houses with -respectable mobs; thus conformlig to a ridiculous custom. Rousseau, with all his aberrations of mind, said: "I had rather have my house too small for a day than too largo for a twolvemouth." Fashion exactly reverses the maxim; and domestic mischief is often begun with a large dwelling and suitable accommodations. The misfortune consists in thls, that we never look below our level for an example, but always above it. It is not so much, however, in the more appearances kept up, as in the moans taken to keep them up, that the fruitful cause of immorality Is to be found. A man, having .arNiumed a olass status, runs all risk to keep It tip. It Is tlioug'It to h,! a 'luo."'iit il the wo"uih to abridge oneself of a superfluity. The seeming-rich man who drives his close carriage and drinks champagne, will hot tolerate a descent t...
