My First Review. [Newspaper Article] — Independent — 2 June 1883

My First Review. ON Thursday, 24th May, it pleased Her Most Gracious Majesty the Queen to have a birth day, the sixty-fourth I believe, and it pleased me.to attend the Volunteer Review at Albert Park. Neither I or the olive branches of my establishment had ever seen such a show, and in my ignorance I supposed the whole affair was got up in order that the people who pay. for the luxury ofvolunteers playing at soldiers, might get a sight of them and their manoeuvres assome small return fortheoutlay. So behold us all safely landed at the Albert Park station about one o'clock, after lunch, and just in time to see the Naval Reserve get ready, present, and fire a flu de joie in a street close to the station, after which they marched away to the Park, anti so did we and a mighty crowd besides us. On the ground a large space had been kept apart for the troops by mounted police, who seemed to think the principal part of their duty was to back their horses' stern sheets so close to the. faces...

TREE PLANTING IN THE BOROUGIH. TO TIIE EDITOR OF TIlE INDEPENDENT. SIR,-As I see that my name figures rather. conspiciuously in ?your account of the liiminic Parlihament, and as I consider that I have been misrepresented, I trust that you will allow me space to say a few words in explanation of the scheme of tree-planting' that-I-propounded to the above class, so that if I am to be publicly criticised let mestand or fall by my own words, but not by words put into my mouth, or snatches of what I did say reproduced, whilst the gist of the scheme appears to be studiously ignored. Your informant makes me say that I. would `lant ; a certain jstreet ivith trees, and then I would go in for she-oak, and he says the best thing that I suggested was 'the plant ing of penny-royal on the banks of the river whilst such ships as the:" Agnes Wilson" were discharging.

Presbyterian Church Mutual Im -, provement Association. above wa:s delivered on Tuesday by the Rev. James Gibb, in the Presbyterian session-house. Notwithstanding the inclemency of the weather there was a very fair attendance. The lecturer took fobr his subject Shakespeare's tragedy of "Hamlet." The subject was very fully treated under the following divisions :-The date at which the play was given to the world, and the sources from which 'Shakespeare driew the materials of the tragedy. Mr Gibb pointed out that discussion re the authorship and the date of produecion .of any great work was not generally productive of much good. Volumes have been written on " Who is the author of the I-omeric poems?" Cui bono ? The worth and beatuty of these poems do not centre in their author. There is of course an indirect advantage in such tescarch, viz., that it stimu lates scholarship--lt scholarship might be stimulrited in? more profitable ways.
