MR. KINSMAN REPLIES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 13 April 1878

MR. KINSlAN REPLIES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE 5ERCURY. Sir,-ln answer to Incumbent, I beg re spectfully to say that I have not spoken disrespectfully~of the Church of England, or gone cuit of my way so to do. The lec tures wale to my own people, and in our own church. True, I may have spoken some distasteful facts to Incnmbent, who has evidently mistaken the spirit of my lectures, and not at all understood my pur port, or he would not have indulged in the mean personalities and insinuations in which he has aspersed me, and treated me as though hostile to the Church of England when I am her true friend. It would have been more graceful on his part had he con fined himself to the doctrinal points of my lectures. But, as Scott remarks, " The imperfections of human nature, even in the best estate, appear when pious persons are offended and grieved at those things which should excite in them most lively joy and gratitude." Sometimes true believers are displeased to hear even the word of God ...

THE PASSAGE OF THE DARDANELLES. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 20 April 1878

THE PASSAGE OF THE DAR DANELLES. A correspondent of the Times writes : -" Up to a very late hour- on Tuesday there was great reason to fear that the Turks would fire on the fleet if it per sisted' in' passing in spite of protest, which Admiral Hornby had received orders to do. These orders were not known to the Ambassador until Tues day afternoon. He immediately in formed.the Porte, and was assured that the fleet would be fired on. The Turks were obviously in a very diflicult postion; not only irritated against and distrustfnl of England, but also feeling themselves at the mercy of Russia. There was a strong philo-Russian party, too, in the Cabinet, its chiefrepresenta tive being the Minister of Foreign Affairs. Besides, they had the strongest reason to believe that the entry of the British fleet would be the signal for the Russians occupying Constantinople. The Czar had telegraphed to the Sultan to request him not to let the English ironclads enter, and informing him that if they d...

MR. KINSMAN REPLIES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 20 April 1878

MR. KINSMAN REPLIES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE rMEBCCT. Sir,-Mr. Caton in dealing with the Catechism ssys,--" In baptism therefore a child is made a member of Christ, the child of God; for being in baptism made mem bers of Christ we become, by adoption sons of God. Then also we become heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ of the kingdom of heaven;" and quotes 1st John 3 ch. 1st v.--" Behold what manner of love the Father bath bestowed upon us that we should be called the sons of God;" and also 3 Gal. 29 v. But these references have nothing to do with infant baptism, they are spoken to adults. It is faith and not baptism that makes us heirs; Read the 26th and 27th verses-" For ye are all the children of God by faith (not baptism) in Christ Jesus for as many of you as have been baptised unto Christ have put on Christ." I still maintain from these texts and the context that no one is made a child of God 'by baptism. And here I would 'state the opinion of a clergyman of the Church of Eng...

MARIE, an Emotional Story. (Adapted from the French of an anonymous Lady Writer) SPASM VI. A NEW HOUSEKEEPER. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 20 April 1878

MARIE, an Emotional Story. (Adapted from the French of an ?nonyinous Lady. Writer) Bir E. A. Satsor. SPASM VI. A NEW HOUSEKEEPER. "I paced the room with nerveless, anxious, hasty strides. I was strangely agitated; and much perplexed as to the decision I ought to come to. Vaguely, indefinitely, in a shadowy, incoherent sort of way, it flashed across my mind that she was too young, too lovely, too interesting in her sorrow, not to snatch occasionally from my studies, some of those thoughts which had hitherto been wholly given up to them alone. I had quitted all society ; I had with drawn completely from the world ; I had shunned its bewildering distractions, its gross allurements, its withering temptations, in order that nothing might seduce me from my work, that nothing might disturb me, in the solu tion of those mysterious problems I had set myself to solve. And here, suddenly, in spite of all, in an unsought for way, with nothing to prepare me for it, and against my earnest will an...

OUR NATIONAL CLEAN-LINESS. (FIELD.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 20 April 1878

OUR NATIONAL OLEAN LINDAS. (FIELD.) AMONG the upper classes the daily "tub" has taken the place of the weekly water bath in which our grand sires scoured themselves on Saturday nights. On Sunday mornings we have no doubt that the grandfather used to be cleaner all over than his grandson usually is on the modern day of rest. A daily cold bath will prevent any ac cumulation of dirt, and will keep the skin in a reasonable state of cleanli ness ; but it will not search out the pores of the skin in the manner in which a soaking in hot water will, when coupled with scouring by soap and flannel. Any devotee of his daily cold bath will be astonished at the state of the exuvim of his epidermis in a Turkish bath, and will wonder why they should be such a color, when he sluices himself with water every morn ing. Still. on the whole, the average state of cleanliness throughout the week is greater in the present gene ration than it was in the past among, the well-to-do classes ; more* espe diaIl...

TAKING A RAVEN'S NEST. [LAND AND WATER.] [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 20 April 1878

TAYING A RAVEN'S NEST. [LAND AND WArzm.] It was four years ago last April when I lived among the wild hills of North Wales. Whilst one day fishing in a high mountain tarn, I observed a pair of ravens flying to and fro from one particular spot in the precipice, which rose some 200 yards over my head. I watched them attentively, and concluded by their motions, together with the whiteness of the rock where they pitched (caused by the droppings of the birds) that they had a brood up there, which I determined to take, if possible. My fishing did not prove satisfactory, so I gave it up, and made an examination of the cliff. The nest was some 35 yards from the top, as near as I could judge, and could with great care be approached on foot within 15 yards or so, but with a large pro jection over it, which would cause anyone being let down by a rope to be suspended in mid-air. I started for home, which was seven miles off, and with some persuasion engaged a Welsh boy, about twelve years of ag...

THE BOY ORGANIST. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 20 April 1878

=THE 'BOY ORGANIST.; v Mozart's first experience of a large organ was in a monastery of a little town on th?e anube. He was then only six years o?', and in company with his father had left home in Salzburg, and started ona long course of travel. All day long they had been sailing down that majestic river, past crumbling rivers, frowning castles, cloisters hidden away among the crags, towering cliffs, quiet villages, nestled in sunny valleys, and here and there a deep gorge that opened back from the gliding river, its hollow distance blue with fathomless shadow, and -like some dim and vast cathedral.. ,.The company, of monks with whomn "they had been, travelling that day were at supper in the refec tory of the cloister, when Father Mo zart took Wolfgang into the chapel to see the organ. And now -as the boy gazed with something of awe upon the great instrumnent looming up • in the shadows of the empty church, his face lit up -with serene -satisfaction, and every motion and attitude of...

SUDDEN DEATH OF THE REV. B. S. WALKER. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 20 April 1878

SUDDEN DEATH OF THE REV. B. S. WALKER. . It is with regret we have to record the very sudden death of the Rev. B. S. Walker, of St. Matthew's Church, Prahran, and for many years incumbent of St. Philip's, Collingwood. The sad event occurred so suddenly as to cause a very considerable shock to his congregation, and the residents of Prahran generally, as well as in Colling- wood when a telegram was received by Mr. Baker, which was at once communicated to the Rev. J. Caton, who caused the same to be made known by hoisting the flag on the tower half-mast high. The deceased gentleman was much esteemed for his ster- ling qualities as a clergyman and a citizen. The day before his death Mr. Walker was apparently in his usual health, and on Sun- day he was conducting Divine service as usual, till he was in the act of giving out the second hymn, being 86, " Ancient and Modern," commencing "All glory, laud, and honor To the Redeemer, King." He managed to read the first verse, as was his usual ...

POETRY. - " WILHEL3MINA" " Out of the any and night A joy hath taken flight."-SussrT. Mourn on still, my soul of sadness ; Born, oh! burn my fevered head; Feel delight, my faint heart, never For thy dearest treasure's dead; Dead, ah me, is Wilhelmina, Of the love-lit azure eyes. Sere is sweet and rare a flower As e'er breathed beneath the skies; Pallid lies her form and frigid, Fixed and rayless are her eyes; Nought, ah, nought can give me solace But incessant heart-wrung sighs. Yester eve she was so happy, And her cheeks wore Health's sweet bloom ; She, of soul all gay and gladsome, Thought not then of aught of gloom: Could not dream, when soft reposing, That, ere dawn of this drear day, She should sleep for aye and ever. She would moulder in decay. Pallid lies her form and frigid, Fixed and rayless are her eyes; Nought. ah, nought, can give me solace But incessant heart-wrung sighs. Farewell, lost one, and for ever ! Never more on earth we'll meet. With thee Hope's fair light hath...
