" Well," said Paul, glancing round the room, in which we. were, with elation, not unmixed with the pardonable pride of a student and a scholar, deeply interested in his work, " Well, what do you think of my establishment, of my museum of cerebral peculiarities ?" Without waiting for' an answer, he continued, " You cannot-properly con ceive how extremely happy I am here. I enjoy the most perfect solitude, that it is possible'for man" toihave.

SIGNS OF THE TIMES, OR THE VICTORIAN FREE CHURCH OF ENGLAND. The second lecture by N. KINSMAN. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 30 March 1878

SIGNS OF THE TIMES, OR THE VICTORIAN FREE CHUROH OF S ENGLAND. -The second lecture by N. KnMsMw. But if any man attempt to speak his mind and reform the church, he must expect to be condemned. The Rev. Mr. Molynenx, a clergy man of the. Church of England, had publicly said--"That he had been forty. five years in the Church of England, and it would cost him a -great deal of pain to sever his connection, and it was not for wantof love he left it, but be cause he felt there was too much Popery in its services. Since he could see no chance of disestablishment, there was nothing left for him to do but secede. He was getting old, and he could not afford to pass out of the world bearing the burden of complicity in false doc trines. He was still in the church, but if he lived to the end of the year (1872) his connection with it would close." And now hear my friends the in tolerance and unkindness of a Dean, showing the spirit that I said one must expect if they endeavored, even from the bes...

'Fon some time past things in connec tion with the Collingwood School of Design have iiot worked with that smoothness which is a fair omen "of success, while recent events only tend 3 to prove the advisability of adopting 4 the course suggested by us some time ago-the amalgamation of the Schools of Fitzroy and Collingwood. The adoption of this course can be the only means of securing to the youth of Col- I l'ngwood the advantages which a School of Design bestows upon its members; furthermore, to use the language of the petition from the School of Design to the Collingwood Council-" Such institutions are now universally acknowledged to be abso lutely necessary to enable any com munity to hold its own in arts and manufactures as against its neighbors."

REPLY TO MR. N. KINSMAN. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 6 April 1878

REPLY TO MR. N. KINSMAN. TO THE EDITOR OF THE X3EEC C-E. Sir,--In Mr. Kinsman's second lecture I find verylittle except extracts from speeches of gentlemen, from the time of Wesley to the present day. These require no answer, I will therefore pass them by. What little Mr. Kinsman does say is. so very con tradictory to his previous lecture, that I will let him answer himself. Mr. Kinsman's first lecture--(a) "The Absolution in the Visitation of the Sick is rank Popery if inotworse." (b) "The very. Prayers and Absolution in the Visitation of the Sick which I abominate." (c) "I believe the same to be unscriptural." (d) " It is not true." His second -lecture-" If the few errors, and I admit they are but few, considering all this was done 300 years age, and if now removed which could easily be effected then." Here follows another extract Again, "The Church of England is passing through a severe trial, and her chief difficulty in the present struggle has arisen from the folly and unfaithf...

REVIEW. STATE OF PUBLIC EDUCATION IN VICTORIA. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 6 April 1878

REVIEW. STATE OF PUBLIC EDUCATION IN VICTORIA.* "AIroNa mental as among bodily acquisi tions," says Herbert Spencer, "the orna mental comes before the useful." Not only in times past, but almost as much in our own era, that knowledge which conduces to personal aell-being has been postponed to that which brings applause. In the Greek s-hools, music, poetry, rhetoric, and a philosophy which, until Socrates taught, had but little bearing upon action, were the dominant subjects; while knowledge aiding the arts of life had a very subordinate place. And in our own universities and schools at the present moment, the like antithesis holds." Educationist are, happily, becoming yearly more alive to this grave defect, and, as a consequence, the systems of public instruction both in Europe and America have gradually as sumed a more utilitarian character than formerly. In Victoria, the establishment of Schools of Technology, a few years back, marked the inception of a movement in this direction ...

NOTES AND COMMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 6 April 1878

NOTES AND COMMENTS. BY COSM3OPOLITE. Councillor Evans, at the last meeting of the Fitzroy Council, let out in an unmistakeable manner a little secret, no doubt without thought, that illustrates the fact that there are wheels within wheels, and that the motives for action are not always apparent. He said, in speaking of a stand in Johnston-street for cabmen, that they "Should have a depot as well as the Bus Company, the making of stands for whom had cost alot of money." Now why should the Council spend "a lot of money" in making stands for a wealthy and powerful company any more than fora few cabmen? It will be remembered that when the Bus Co. commenced running, the cabstand in Johnston-street was found to be in the way of the busses, and prevented to some extent the sweep of those vehicles into and out of Smith-street; and so, to accommodate wealth, cabby was shifted. To further facilitate matters, level crossings were made along the route of the busses, and although others shared i...
