THAT TWO POUNDS! [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 9 January 1875

THAT TWO POUNDS ! IT was odd, very odd; reckon it up this way ,or that way, or in whatever way I might, the result was just the same-I had two pounds more than I could account for. I went over the whole quarter's receipts again, to see if something had not been omitted; but everything was quite right. "Ha! what's this? It looks like a scratching out; and yet it can't be, for I never use a penknife." So I hold the leaf up to the light, and scanned it closely, and then, turning it over, scrutinized it again:. "It certainly does look very much like an erasur9; but no, it's only a little roughness on the surface of the paper." I was completely puzzled. It was quite possible for me to have too little; but to have two pounds too much-I could not understand that at all. "Well," I said to myself, "it's better at any rate than having a couple of pounds too little." Still, the idea of there being a mistake somewhere made me feel very uncomfortable. I had been busy preparing my accounts, in or...

CORRESPONDENCE. We do not necessarily endorse the opinions of our correspondents. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 9 January 1875

CORRESPONDENCE. We do not necessarily endorse the opinions of our correspondonts, To THIE EDITOR 0' TIC IfP IROURY. Sir-As an appendage to my last letter, I extract the following from a late paper:- "The examination of four samples of reputed coffee in Paris recently gave the following results:-Composition--1. Grilled bread and coffee husks; 2. Chicory powder, sand, pounded brick, and red oohre; 3. Roasted chicory powder, softened with rancid butter, and coloured with Prussian red; 4. Toasted cabbage stalks and roasted horse liver." It would be well to know how much of this rubbish we Victorians are consuming. One cannot help being struck with the number of doctors and chemists' shops, and which seem quite out of proportion to our population. The loss we have need of these, the better for society at largo. People are constantly making disparaging remarks with reference to this climate, but there are other sources of disease besides climatic influences. I will conclude by drawing att...

LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 9 January 1875

LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS. The heat on Tuesday morning was very intense. The thermometer at the Melbourne Observatory registered 101.1 in the shade, and 144 in the sun.       James Cooper, the larrikin, who so violently assaulted Thomas Keeble, the milkman, on the 28th December, was fined by the Collingwood Bench the sum of .£5, or two months' imprisonment. A boy named McKay, about seven years of age, residing in Bedford street, had his arm broken by being pushed down by one of his playfellows; He was taken to the hospital, whore the injury was attended to. The Rev. B. S. Walker, a former incum-   bent of St. Philip's parish, has been temporarily appointed to St. Matthew's Church of England, Prahran, in the place of the Rev. John Fulford, resigned. Two very young boys, named Kirk and Burke, were brought up before the Colling- wood Court for stealing a bundle and some bags, the property of Mr. Michael Peppart. The Bench discharged Burk...

COLLINGWOOD LARRIKINS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 9 January 1875

COLLINGWOOD LARRIKINS, TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. Sir-One of the last performances of the Smith street gang of these cowardly scoundrels was to smash the windows of Mr. John Lloyd Jones, corner of Smith and Moor streets, on the morning of the 1st inst. The damage done amounts to several pounds sterling. This is the return Mr. Jones has got for his endeavours to prevent these foul-mouthed, ugly, and altogother ill-conditioned ruffians from gathering about his premises at nights, and expending their beastly talk and saliva on the passers by. Too cowardly to seek any other mode of revenge, these unregistered curs take advantage of the darkness to wreak their pitiful malice by the destruction of pro- perty. The local police, it is evident, are not competent to deal with these vagabonds, re unwilling to do so. Which is it? nuisance, already intolerable, is daily asing. Perhaps when some outraged eholder puts a charge of shot into the carcase of one of these unclean ndrels the attentio...

WILD CAT HUNTING IN SPAIN. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 16 January 1875

WILD CAT HUNTING iN SPAIN; TaE environs of Pampeluna, and more especially the mountain range which rises as a kind of barrier between that town and France, abound in various kinds of game. There are pheasants,' grouse, red-legged - partridges, ring. doves, royal eagles and vultures, besides wild goats, chamois or isards, wild cats, foxes, and wolves. The faivourite sport, however, among the people of the neighbourhood, after wild goat and chamois hunting, is shooting the wild cut. This game, if we may give it that donomination, is much larger than its domestic namesake.. Its thfiiý iAS darker, and in some parts striped.like that of a tiger, its claws are long and sharp, and its: eyes sparkle like diamonds in the centre of a small circular head, which appeaors to be always moving. It lives in trees, and only descends friom its perch to attack its prey and hear.it off to his aifreuul dwelling.. In the course of time it either destroys or drives away all the birds that build or roost i...

At a special meeting of the above council on Monday, the 11th inst., convened pur suant to the provisions of section 157 of the Local Government Act there were present the Mayor (Cr. Kneen) in the chair, and Messrs. Delbridge, Mahoney, Tucker, and Woodhead. onDEI? OF T?HE DAY. To confirm the net valuation of rateable property in the town of Fitzroy for the year ending 30th September, 1875, amounting to £133,431. Cr. Mahony moved, and Cr. Delbridgo seconded-" That clause I be passed." Cr. Mahoney moved, and Cr. Tucker seconded the adoption of estimated revenue and expenditure of coming year, which showed that a rate of 10)d. in the £ of the not valuation is necessary to raise the amount. Cr. Woodhead objected to £75 being placed on the estimates for name plates of streets, and thought it ought to be put to the sum of £250 for a culvert on the Heidelberg road, and he moved the same. Itwasnotsecondcd; the motionwas carried. Or. Mahoney moved, a...

WHAT DOES IT MEAN? [COMMUNICATED.] [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 16 January 1875

WHAT DOES IT MEAN? [COMMUNICATED.j "A WEEK{ OF PAYm:.--In view of the appalling desecration of the Lord's Day by an excursion steamer profanely called the Golden Crown (see Exodus xxv., 25), it is earnestly recommended that all prayerful Christians should address their petitions to the throne of grace that the fato of Pharaoh and his host may overtake the misguided mtn, women, and children who forsake the courts of the Lord's house, and devote their earnings to the unhallowed object of Sunday enjoyment. May the wished-for catastrophe be blessed to the survivors, and drive them back to their sorrowing pastors, is the earnest petition of a SAnIATOi LOVER." Such is the wording of a number of large placards at present posted about our city and suburbs, and plainly enough it is the emanation of either the proprietors or supporters of the said " excursion steamer." But we are at a loss for its meaning. Is it that the Golden Crown party, somewhat conscience-stricken at what they are doing,...

SATURDAY, JAN. 16, 1875. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 16 January 1875

SATURDAY, JAN. 16, 1875. TEnnn can be no doubt that the exten sion and'adoption of the principle of co-operation is destined to exert a great influence upon the society of the future. It is gradually widening its circle of operations, both in Great Britain and America. It is attracting all classes, and embracing all trades. Its latest development is the establishment in America of agricultural co-operative associations called "Granges." Their object is to do away with the necessity for the employment of the host of " middle men," who, under the ordinary course of trade, intervene between the producer and the consumer; thus securing for the producer all the profits in addition to his own, which ordinarily go to these third parties. The opera tions of some of.these " Granges" have reached enormous proportions. They own their' own vessels, and ship their own produce to those parts of the world where they are required, bring lug back with them any of the products of those lands which ma...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE MEROCUR. 0 ".. Sir-In spite of the somowhatacrimonious debates which have latterly arisen ini the Fitzroy Council respecting the paving rates I think the subject is not fairly understood by a large number of your readers; and I think were a case or two fairly placed before them, showing how unjustly.-the taxationh for paving is distributed, it would not be long before common sense and justice would insist on some radical change in the present regulations. Let me' then put"a couple of cases which will exhibit the iniquity of the law in its present state. Assuming a block of building allotments, 20ft. wide, fronting a main street, having a 10ft. wide pavement; anid a :streot'at each end of the block with a similar pavement, each of the allotment holders would'have to contribute his quota towards paving the 200 square feet in front of his lot, with the exception of the two end ones, who would have not only his 200ft., but the whole of the side footpaths the depth o...
