HEART'S-EASE. (QUEEN.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 5 June 1875

HEART'S-EASE. Shy-of growth, heart's-ease is also easy of.destruction. Envy and jealousy cut it down..as a tender annual is cut down by the frost; pride, which puts itself voluntarily in the way of being wounded because of its aggressive as sumptions to which men who respect themselves cannot submit; vanity, al ways hungry,' never filled; and ambi tion, which is just as insatiable-the supreme point receding as. one height after another is marked, made for, and gained; the uneasy temper which a breath provokes, a look inflames; the inborn opposition which sets itself athwart: the current, simply because it is the current .and runs one way;. the obstinate perversity of method which will not wade in the shallows nor swim in the depths;-all these are qualities side by side with 'which no heart's ease is- to be found, and whereon not the most generous husbandry of good fortune can,makerit grow. Give any one with these qualities money, fame, position, fortune, all the goods which the eart...

THE PERILS OF A NEWSPAPER CORRESPONDENT. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 5 June 1875

THE PERILS OF A NEWSPAPER CORRESPONDENT. It happened that a London newspaper despatched one of its correspondents to Tipperary, with a mission to send' it letters on the matters connected, with the recent election. There are circum stances under which the truth is no doubt calculated to create irritation. Before the newspaper correspondent had been in the country a w";eek he received numerous imitations that Tipperary was fliercely offended in consequence of the character he had found it to be his duty to forward to his journal, and .that it was intended to inflict retribution on him in-the manner characteristic ' of Tipperary. He re ceived a nonymous threatening letters, tolling him that men were lying in wait to perform a rough surgical operation on his skull. He was assiduously followed about by hang.dog ruffians obviously only waiting for a favourable chance to embroil him in a quarrel. Gentlemen called upon him, and partly out of kindly feeling towards the stranger, partly with...

A JOURNEY IN MADAGASCAR. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 5 June 1875

A JOURNEY IN MADAGASCAR. The Scotsman publishes the following extract from a letter addressed to a relative residing "in the neighbourhood of Edinburgh by a lady, who has accompanied her husband on a journey to Antananarivo, the capital of Mada gascar. Four days' journey from the capital, October 10th 1874: " We took five days from'Port Louis to Tamatave, and though the sea was calm the vessel rolled so dreadfully that we were much relieved to see the white .breakers dashing orer the coral reefs that surround Madagascar. We got into the harbour of Tamatave on the 'forenoon of September' 30th. On reaching the shore we found palan quins waiting, and were carried off amid an admiring crowd. We stayed a week there, and called on the English Consul. Governor, &c. We left for the capital on Monday at midday, and now this is Sunday. Anything like the exquisite loveliness of the country you could hardly conceive. Our first four days' journey was as through a nobleman's model estate....

The increasing popuhlarity of the paper may be accepted as a guarantee of its future success, and we are gratified to realize such a general appreciation of our exertions. It is no easy matter to establish a new journal in any district; but more especially is it the case in a suburban community, where another publication has been In existence some years. When the proprietors of this paper first entered the arena of Victorian journalism, they maturely calculated the pros and cons.of the undertaking; - but they obtained such local encouragement as immediately dispelled any, apprehensions for the result. Up to the present hour, they have not been disappointed, for the Mercury appears to be growing In public favor, and the ...

Institute, iheld in theNational Schoolroom, Hard man street, Barlow .Moor; and in the cdtdr?e of an address he kidhe should like to know in what proportion the various classes; of science and litertauro were re prsented in the weekly issues of volumes to the members'. If he might form a conclusion from experience gathered elsewhere heo would bo rather inclined to imagine that fifty per cent, or oven more, of the volumes Issued would be works of fiction. Of course it would be vain for him or anybody else to talk against the prevailing taste of works of light literature and fiction, but lihe would earnestly impress upon his hearers that there was in that class of literaturo an immenso amount ofgarbage, and that it required a good deal of dis crimination and a pure taste to prevent it from demoralizing, and corrupting the mind'.

MR. BRIGHT AND MR. GLADSTONE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 5 June 1875

MR. ]BRIGHT AND, MR. GLAD STONE. To the right of Mr. Lowl I see a figure which, foreshortened from my point of view, is chiefly distinguishable by ahat and pair of boots. Without there being an absolute Quaker fashion about theocut of the ihat or garments, there is a breadth about the former and a looseness about the latter suggestive of Quaker associations. Perhaps if my idea were mercilessly analysed it would'appear that it has its growth in the knowledge that I am looking down on Mr. BaRIGT, and that I know Mr. BRIUT is of Quaker piarentage. But I am jotting down my impressions as I receive them. Mr. Bu3IIUT does not address the house to night, but he has made one or two short speeches this sessiOn, and CIIIL'urN, who has heard them, speaks quite, sorrowfully of the evidence they give of failing physical power.
