IN RE FRANCIS SPEARIN. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 22 May 1875

The Crown Prosecutor having entered a nolle prosequi inthe perjury case against the UTTINGS, it is the intention of Messrs. McKEAN and WILSOP to move for a grand jury under the 5th section of the new Judicature, Act, in order that the evidence against the accused may be maturely examined; to ascertain whether it is sufficiently material to go to an ordinary panel. As this will constitute the first motion of its kind, under the new law, the public will watch the issue with considerable interest. For ourselves, we have long entertained an opinion which has been reciprocated by several persons, that the plenary powers invested in the ATTORNEY GENERAL are incompatible with a due administration of justice. No one can have a profounder respect for the legal qualifications of Mr. Kerferd than ourselves, but our argument is that final disposal of life and liberty ought not to be entrusted to the arbitrary dictum of one man; and the colonists of Victoria will have reason to suspect &...

CORRESPONDENCE. We do not necessarily endorse the opinions of our correspondents. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 29 May 1875

C'ORRESPONDENCE. We do not neeessarily endorseo the opinions of our 'correspondents. TO THU EDITOI OF THE MBROUY., Sir-One of the questions of the day upon which public opinion appears to be divided is the Eight Hours' Movement. But there is one aspect of the question which, I believe, has yet to be ventilated. I allude to the absurd Australian custom, which obtains in summer, of transacting business in the middle of the day. I believe I am pretty near the mark when I say that some of our hot days are quite as opp essive as those they experience in India. And how do they manage there, and in other Eastern countries P I under stand they select morning and evening-for labor. Now, would it not be betterfor'us so to adapt ourselves to this climate ? But I will turn' to the unfortunate drapers' and grocers' assistants. People will persist in shopping late, and it seems a burning shame that these men are to be imprisoned from an early hour in the morning till late at night to attend to th...

GODLESS EDUCATION [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 29 May 1875

GODLESS EDUCATION Was the. subject of a very excellent dis. course delivered by the Rov. T. 10. Bird, on Sunday evening, May 23rd, in the Oxford street Congregational Church, Collingwood. The Rev, gentleman in opening, said he would not choose a text, but rather tako a motto from part of the 19th verso of the eleventh chapter of Matthew, which read: " Wisdom,is justified of her children." Briefly, he had two reasons for selecting this subject for pulpit discourseo-That national education is of prime importance, and that he considered this colony, had reached a critical juncture in its history, and would be pushed far back by a certain class, if a determined stand was not made against them. Were it not in the interest of Christianity, he would not have brought this subject before them to-night, for he held that Christianity is more than doctrinal architecture, it is as large as the divine man. He would not yield one jot or title of the belief that no man has the right,to bring anythi...

POLICE. COLLINGWOOD, TUESDAY, MAY 25. .Before Messrs. Templeton, , P.M., Walker (Mayor), and W. Kidney. DEATH OF G. B, HA1LES, Esq., J.P. Before business was commenced at the Collingwood Court on Tuesday last, Mr Templeton, P.M., said,-One of the oldest magistrates, G. B. Hailos, who has attended this and the Fitzroy Court for thirteen or fourteen years, died on Thursday night last, and, although it is not the intention to adjourn the court, as such a course might be productive of inconvenience to others, .I think it right to express the fooling of the Bench by referring to the death of a colleague, who, during his career as a Justice of the Peace, has been most attentive, and oven zealous, in the dis charge of his magisterial duties, besides having manifested correct judgment and cool courage in all his declsions; and although such conduct is not unknown nor uncommon in magistrates of this country, yet they are not to be the less respected. With those observations, I wish to mentio...

IMPROVIDENT HABITS. (SOCIAL REVIEW.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 29 May 1875

IMPROVIDENT HAlBITS. ;(socIAL REVIEW.) One of the great characteristics of to*n life at the present time is the alarming predominance of improvident habits. Look where we will, the fact constantly 'appears. The spirit of extravagance has set in; no class in society is altogether exempt from it; and very few individuals regard it with unfavourable eyes. Upon the abstract largumlent, that every man ought to live withliin his ineans, there is tolerable unaniuiity; 'bu t- immediately' the pro iposition is, ,reduced to its practical applipatione the general principle 'is rdisuar led,., and each individual treats his own case as exceptional, and ?as goverine ' by special circumsttinces.
