MARIE, an Emotional Story. (Adapted from the French of an anonymous Lady Writer) SPASM IV. AN INTERVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 23 March 1878
MARIE, an Emotional Story. (Adapted fron the French of an anonymous Lady Writer) Br E. A. SAvsoe. SPASM IV. AN IN rERVIEW. WITa thoughts, thick upon me, such as [ have described at the end of the last chapter, I ventured to re-enter Paul's study. Now that I felt assured I had fathomed the secret of Paul's strange inexplicable withdrawal from the life of the great city, I looked with mute respect upon those bones and skulls, the bare sight of which had, but a few minutes previously, so filled my soul with frighted loathing and with blank dismay. In meditative silence, I gazed with searching eyes around this little corner of the.world : one. in_.which, doubtless, many daring proposition', had been addressed for their solution by my old acquaintance, Paul, to the vast myste rious heavens, and to the boundless depths of the unseen bowels of the earth. With- closest, with exactest, and most critical attention I examined, one by one, the heap of human skulls, lying in the middle of the ro...

SIGNS OF THE TIMES, OR THE VICTORIAN FREE CHURCH OF ENGLAND. Continuation of lecture by N. KINSMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 23 March 1878
SIGNS OF THE TIMES, OR THE VICTORIAN FRES CHURCH OF ENGLAND. Continuation of lecture by N. KxisAsx. Such indeed is the clear and un mistakeable teaching of the Church of England. and I am a firm believer in it. Call me Roman Catholic Pnseyite, Ritualist, or what ever you please, I distinctly avow my firm belief in the doctrine of baptismal regeneration as inculcated by the Church of England, both through the form of administra tion and in the catechism, without the slightest qualification or reserve, feeling that any attempt on the part of an in dividual to alter the words of the catechism, or to say that they mean anything different from what a child. would uddeirtand by them, is to say the least grossly irreverent, because it virtually impugns the wisdom of the Church, and denies her ability to pro pound the very A B C of her own faith. Sir, if it is known to you that there are clergymen in our church who preach and speak against her own teaching, how much better must it be known ...

NOTES AND COMMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 23 March 1878
NOTES AND COMMENTS. BY COSMOP,)LITC. Tnrar is, in a certain place, be it city, town, or village I will not say, a dealer in flesh, yclept a butcher, who it is asserted feeds pigs and boils down refuse upon his premises contrary to the laws of the place wherein he resideth, and much to the annoyance and disgust of his neighbors; but as he is a good sort of fellow they din't care about complaining, and are also indif ferent about the sanitary condition of their own premises. At certain times and seasons an official termed "Inspector of Nuisances" pays a visit to the localitv nnder review, and in the pride of his pomoisity points out things that musr be reme iel before his next visit, or the vengeance of the law will o'ertake the dehnquen e, but strange to say the machinery of the law is never put in motion, and the nuisances exist in as bad a condition as ever. Now there arose in the mind of Cosmopolite a q'lestion as to the reason thereof, and he set himself to work to discover the c...

Mr. MIRAMS on PAYMENT OF MEMBERS AND AN APPEAL TO THE COUNTRY. (Speech delivered in the Assembly, March 7th. 1878.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 23 March 1878
Mr. MIRAMS on PAYMENT OPF MEMBERS AND AN APPEAL TO THE COUNTRY. (Speech delivered in the Assembly, March 7th. 1878.) Mr SPzax-a.-I regret very much that the hon. member for Maldon and the hon. and learned member for the Ovens have not remained in their places, for I think it is not exactly treating this House fairly for hon. members to charge other hon. mem. bers with conduct which is anything but gentlemanly and proper, and then when they have had their shot, to le rve the Chamber and not remain to hear what might be said in reply to those charges. But notwithstanding their absence I intend to reply to some of the remarks which those gentlemen saw fit to address to the House. However, before I do so, I wish to reply to a few remarks made by the hon. member for Rodney (Mr. Gillies). I was very much amused at the great regard which that gentleman appeared to have, last night, for the dignity of the Minis:ry. He seemed very much to take to heart that the Min istry should adopt a cours...

FI I'ZIOY.-i'ulHsSDaY .tJiaKC 12. Before Messrs. Showers, Falconer, Bell, Mfarsden, and McLean, Mary Mullen was charged with stealing a kerosene lamp, a jug, and a glass. Sala thiel Hadley, who described himself as a carpenter, living in Little Napier street, said that on the 18th of I st month he had occasion to go out. and left the articles which had been stolen on his table. When he returned he found the articles gone. By a search warrant issued Detective Ward searched the prisoner's house and found the goods stolen. She could only account for them by saying she obtained them from somebody when she was "on the spree." A Mrs. Harbuckle alias The Great Eastern, identified the goods stolen, having seen the goods when she was living with Salathiel Hadley. Mr. Edwards, for the prisoner, urged that the bench could not deal with the case, as there was no evidence of steal ing, and the bench could only send a case of receiving to a jury, and he did not think they would do such a thing in...

"Soon after I had finally resolved upon devoting my timeaian such poor talent as I had been blessed with, to the special study of rPhrenology, a; science notyet.emerged from its empiric stage, for the sake of the seclusion and the quiet that it.offered me, and for the comiplte" avoidance 'of all iunelcome interruptions from the calls and visits of imporunate acquaintances; men whose days, hanging heavy on their hands, would, in sheer vacuity: of mind and thoughtlessiess, compel me lo Iwaste many precious hours in bald and empty chat, and unprofitable talk,.I determinied to fix my residence at °Belleville,~the one place I knew of that being the nearest to Paris. by road, or omnibus, yet: would be` Athe farthest , from it socially.

REPLY TO MR. N. KINSMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 30 March 1878
REPLY TO JMR . N. KINSMAN. Sir.--As I have dealt with Baptismal Regeneration, it is not necessary for me to repeat what I already stated. I will there fore pass on to Mr. Kinsman's next altera tion. In dealing with the Catechism he has struck out the words, " Wherein I was made a member of Christ, the child of God, and an inheritor of the Kingdom of Heaven," because, as he says, it is un scriptural I suppose that Mir. Kinsman will not deny that circumc son was the rite whereby Jewish infants w re admitted into covenant with God, and that privileges were secured to them in consequence of such circumcision. Baptism having taken the place of circumcision, as far as the Christian Dispensation is concerned, it follows that baptism admits t> all the privileges of the Christian covenant. Their privileges are set forth in the Catechism as follows:-(s) A member of Christ. When Jesus took our nature, He became to us a second Adam, and His relalion to the church is often set forth in script...
FREE CHURCH CONTROVERSY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 30 March 1878
FREE CHUCUH COUEY OYVEESP. To THE EDITOR OF THE MERCCET. Sir.-In Mr. Kinsman's lecture reported in your issue of the 23rd, he states he has "struck out" of the Book of Common Prayer the Comminatory Service for the first day of Lent. Why not be consistent, Mr. Kinsman, and strike out the whole of the Lenten services, including those for Good Friday? The service, thus rathlessly dealt with, is peculiarly appropri ate for the solemn season upon which the church has just now entered, and it is sheer sacrilege thus to meddle with it. The lecturer is undeniably a striking paradox, but it certainly strikes me that if one thing deserves striking out it is that vague alln sion of his to "dark days," which proves unmistakably t that Mr. Kinsman is help lessly in a maze of his own creation, and is confounding the Lenten solemnities of the early fathers with rank popery. Yours, &c., EPISCOPALIAN.

CORRESPOND'ENCE. We do notneoessadzy endorse the opinions of our correspondents. AN ACT OF BRAVERY. TO THE EDITOR OP THE EEBCURT. Sir,-In your issue of the 23rd instant, I notice a report of the recent flood at Heidel berg, allow me, sir, a small space to mention to your readers the brave act performed by a young man named McHugh. Only for the exertions of this young man and his father some of the members of the families of McHugh and MeAllice would no doubt have been lost. McHugh, with the aid of a horse and dray, conveyed twelve persons safe to land at great risk of losing his life. The life of one person is specially due to McHugh's exertions, which is worthy of notice, and deserves something more than a mere passing notice.-I am. Sir, yours respectfully, MICHAEL EGAN.

Amy expressed herself as incapable of making use of the language attributed to her. She. however, was fined 10s or 48 hours' imprisonment.

EQUITABLE REPRESENTATION. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 30 March 1878
EQUITABLE REPRESENTATION. -4------- TxrT Property and Education are entitled to a more equitable representation, and that Minorities should be represented in Parlia ment, were the resolutions submitted by the "men in office," at the Parliamentary de bate held by the Albert-street Young Men's Association, last Friday evening. Mr. E. Cooke, in moving adoption of resolutions, contended that any system that, like the one in force here, sanctioned such glaring anomilies in its property qualifications for vo'ing, as to sometimes make the same amount of property represent seven or eight votes, and sometimes only one vote, wants doctoring; and that, when we add to this, that our present system frequently gives effect to the voice of 510 electors, though by doing so it has to stifle the voice of 500, we see that our system is manifestly unfair. Mr. Cooke also contended that minorities should be represented in Parliament by design and not by accident, as at present, and that also as "isside" ...
