SAN FRANCISCO MAIL [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 23 March 1878

SAN FRANCISCO MAIL The following additional items of in telligence are taken from the Otago Daily Times: The Greek Garde-Mobile has been raised to 140.000 men. Garihaldi is reported to be quite ill. In the House of Lords the leaders of the English Protestant organisations re joice at the Vatican abandonment of the Scotch hierarchy scheme. It is said to have been abandoned because steps were taken to enforce Scotch laws against papal jurisdiction. In the House of Lords, on the 24th inst., Lord Beaconsfield, in response to a question by the Duke of Argyle, said distinctly that England was not going to be dictated to by any other Power. Two advance boats were ordered by the French Government to Constan tinople, and the French ironclad at Sum garua was ordered to protect the subjects of that Government at Constantinople, if required.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE NERCUBY. Sir.-In answer to the Incumbent of S1. Philip's lefetr in the your i-sue of the 16th, I beg to say that when my lectures are finished there will be a reply to much that has been said by the Incumbent, and what is wanting I will reply at the last. In the meantime I would answer as David did to Elisb, his eldest brother, . . and Eliab's anger was kindled against David, and he said, Why camest thou down hither? and with whom hast thou left those few sheep in the wilderness? I know thy pride, and the naughtiness of thine heart; for thou art come down that thou miohtest see the Iattle. And David said, What have I now done? Is there not a cause? " Yours. &e., N. KINSMAN.

CORRESPONDENCE. We do not necessarily endorse the opinions of our correspondents. FREE CHURCH CONTROVERSY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 23 March 1878

CORRESPONDENCE. We o not aneeenas y endorse the opinions o0 ou? conespondents. FREE CH,"RC CONROTERSF? TO THE EDITOR o0 THE )IEBC cT. Sir,-With your permission I deaire to offer a few remarks respecting the Book of Common Prayer controversy, which is being cnnducted in your columns. In Article XII we read--"The Eomish doctrine concerningpurgatory, pardons, worshipping and adoration, as well of images as of Teliques, is a fond thing vainly invented, and grounded upon no warranty of Scrip ture, but rather requgnant to the Word of God." The reference to pardons one would think should be a sufflcient answer to the lecturer's allegation that the cofessional is enjoined by the church. Of course, if clergymen of Ritualistic proclivities, such as the Rev. Mr. Tooth, and others in England, choose to strain the Rubric and Romanize the church, then I agree with the Incumbent of Collingwood, in speaking of Bishop Bromby, "That the church is not answerable for private opinion." Whilst sympathizi...

The Mercury. PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY, MAR. 22, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 23 March 1878

PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY. MAR. 2', 1878. THE question of the formation of Mater and Emma streets is assuming a rather serious aspect, and one that it would have been well for the Council of the City of Cullingwood to have considered more fully before accepting the tender for the constructing of those streets. There is not the slightest doubt as to the necessity, but there is every doubt as to the expediency of the work being proceeded with at the present time. The haste with which the Council has entered upon a work estimated to cost £1,289 19s. 2d. does not reflect much credit upon those Councillors who have, we think, rather injudiciously voted for the acceptance of the tender for the work, in the face of the statement of the financial position of the City laid before the Council by Mr. Cr. SMITH, We cannot think that that gentlemau would be influenced by mere ward con. siderations in placing such an impedi ment in the way of the carrying out of the w...

PRIESTLY AUTHORITY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 23 March 1878

PRIESTLY AUTHORITY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. Sir.--I think it would have been more 1 c-eflon the part of "Inacumbent" bad e confied himself, in his reply, to the doctrinal points of Mr. Kinsman's lecture. without reference to " The conduct of those people who tried to keep him (Mr. Kinsman) out of the church a little time ago." As I am one of "those people" referred to. will I you kindly grant me space in your columns for an explanation, and I shall be able to show incontestibly that "'priestlyauthority" which Mr. Kinsman pretends "to have struck at the root of," was the cause of that scene. By the Trust Deed of the Victorian Free Church the churchwardens have vested in them the mower of granting or refusing the building for meetings. and yet, knowing this, on one occasion just prior to ihe first lecture on the Tabernacle "Priestly Authority" had granted the church to a body of Wesleyans for a prayer meeting, presided over by the Rev. J. B. Gribble; no one, I believe, belonging...

Gray was fined 5s, Powell was discharged. Margaret Heffernan v Bridget Hanlan. Mrs. Heffernan said that there was "bad blood" between the families about a joint property, and said that on one occasion the defendant had attacked her husband, and "picked him into the mouth." In reference to the case before the court, the plaintiff said that Mrs. Hanlan "made a face at her" but did not strike her, as she (the plaintiff) prevented her by putting up her hand. Heffernan described the affair and concluded every sentence by an apostrophe to the bench of "D'ye see." The counsel for the defence-Mr. Seivewright - denied the assault, and said that the best thing to be done was for the "plaintiff to take out a summons to bind themselves over to keep the peace."

REPLY TO MR. N. KINSMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 23 March 1878

REPLY TO MIR. N. KINSAMAN. Sir.--In looking over Mr. Kinsman's continuation of his first lecture I find that he deals very largely in newspaper reports. and other matter that might very well have been left out. He has chosen to assail the Church and her doctrine, and it is from Church authors and formularies that I will answer him. Mr. Kinsman quotes from'the 42 Articles of 1552 to prove that Christ went down into Hell, and then he adds this is by authority. No, sir, this is not by authority; it was, but these Articles were repealed by Queen Mary, and when brought forward in Elizabeth's reign, 1562. the part Mr. Kins man thinks so much of was struck ou:. The Articles were then left 38 in number. In 1571 another was added, making up the 39 as they stand at present. Sir-Before Mr. Kinsman rushes into print again to condemn the Church of England, it would be well for him to ascer tain what her teaching is. If he could have seen the distinction between Hades and lGehenna he would have s...
