JOHN KNOX. A LECTURE BY THE REV. G. MACKIE. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph, St Kilda, Prahran and South Yarra Guardian — 21 March 1868
JOHN KNOX. A LECO'rtr. BY THE REV. O. tAOKCIE. : On Thursday evening last the Rev. George Mackie delivered a lecture on "John Knox and the Scottish KRfjrmation," in thie Pres byterian Church, South Yarrn, to a somewhat more numerous audience than attended his previous one, on " Oliver Cromwell." He commenced his theme by paralleling the two subjects he had chosen-Knox and Cronmwell. They had both been instrumental in different ways in emancipating them from Popery; but Knox had been anterior to Cromwell,. his. career extending over the earlier. portion., nd the middle of the ItOth.century. Those who had read " Robertson's History" would have. gleaned some-acesunt of this. great man; but he had. been, considerably misrepresented by this. writer, and he cautioned those who used that medium to receive his opinions with. cir oumspection. Scotland was but an. incon siderate and distant territory, once held in. swey by thie Popes, but she has been one of the principal battle-grounds where...

THE DUKE'S RECOVERY. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph, St Kilda, Prahran and South Yarra Guardian — 21 March 1868
THE D?? KE'S BECOVERPY. The dark cloud of doubt and fear which, when we last went to press, hung over the people of this colony like a funeral pall, has been happily dispelled. The sincere and hearty prayers of the, people have been answered, and the life of the Duke of Edin burgh spared. His complete recovery seems now only to be a matter of time. Being a young man, and blessed with a good constitution, he has rallied even more quickly than we had dared to hope; and should no unfavourable symptoms set. in -which seem very lunlikely-he will soon he once again able to pursue his usual avo cations, What an oppressive load is taken off the mind of every loyal colonist by this knowledgoel Had he died, we should indeed have been boared down in thle dust with grief and shame. The deed, even now, will bring enough of disgrace upon us, but then itcould not have been washed out. There would have been no waters of Lethie for such an ablution. Thank God, however, he is spared. Foul as was the ...

THE A ?TEMPT TO ASSASSINATE THE DUKE OF EDINBURGH. INDIGNATION IEETING AT PHAHRAN.

TIhe various speakers were applauded to the echo as they successively denounced the crime and its perpetrator, the oiilv differ ence of opinion being as to whether )'Farrell was to be considered as a madinan, or as the 5gent of a foul conspiracy, the latter idea seeming to find most favour. The meeting as presided over by TI'he lMayor, who in opening the proceedings observed that it was a lamentable thing,. that the life of this young Prince, who was the guest of tile colony of Victoria, and lately a resident in Prahlrun,.should have been at tempted b...
ST. PATRICK'S DAY. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph, St Kilda, Prahran and South Yarra Guardian — 21 March 1868
ST. pATROICKS DAY. St. Patrick's day has pasied over harmless -nay, with even more than its wonted quietude. We have not even heard of the ghost of a f$etion fightt--thoue scrimmages so dear to the wild and irropressible Irish men, in which they break each other's heads for love, arid in which Connaughlt and ounster men helabour one another as though they were natural-born enemies, Peace and quietude have reigned supreme BuDt if we have missed the pathetic entreaty -urged only as an Irishman dying for want of a shindy can urge it-for some one to "tread on the tail of me coat," it has not bhcen because there was no need to put up tlhe lament. But w0 must not jump to the conclusion that, because the peace has not; been broken, therefo.ro the fears that imagined it would were groundless. On the contrary, had it not been for those fears it is highly probable the day would have been one of bloodshed. But for the knowledge that the authorities were not only deter mined hut capable of putt...

MAIL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph, St Kilda, Prahran and South Yarra Guardian — 21 March 1868
MAIL NEWS; The news brought by the Avoca, which arrived on Tuesday, it singularly devoid of sensation, The accosnts published at home of the reception of the Duke of Edinburgh in these colonies had given immense satis faction, and most of the papers had laul datory articles on the subject. What will they say when they hear of his attempted assassination ? Perhaps they willnot be so severe on us as they otherwise might, seein. that a sim?ilar atrocious act has been perpre trated in their midst, although less success fully, some miscreant having fired into a train at Grantham containisng.the Prince and· Princess Teek (Princess 1Mary of Cambridge, iud one of the most popular of the Royal Family). This attempt, coupled with the one at Sydney, would seem to give some colour to the assertion we have heard many times recently, that it has bCeen determined to take.thel lives of three members of the roigning'dynasty in revenge for the three murderers who were hung at srachester. Supposing su...
