The Mercury. PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY, APRIL. 27, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 27 April 1878

PUBUSHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY, APRIL. 27,.1878. IN the present unsettled state of politics in Victoria there are many prognosti cations of her future. Some of these, with a strong antipathy to and an utter disbelief in the BERRY Ministry, are constantly sounding the alarm, and in timating to us that we are on the high way to national ruin. Now, without identifying ourselves with either the pro or anti BERRYITE, we are strongly convinced that these evil prognosti cators will prove very false prophets indeed. We have more -faith in the stamina of the Colony to suppose for one moment that it will be permanently injured by whatever Ministry may be in power. It is true, and we admit the truth, that a Government or a Parlia. ment may do much to retard the steady upward progress of a community-and may possibly inflict incalculable injury to the commerce and general industry. But in a colony like Victoria-with all the full force and vigor of the dominant Saxon race-s...

POETRY. TO STAY AT HOME IS BEST. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 4 May 1878

POETRY. TO STAY AT HOME IS BEST. STAY, stay at home, my heart, aud rest; Home-keeping hearts are happiest, For those that wander they know not where Are full of trouble and full of care ; To stay at home is best. Weary and home-sick and distressed They wander east, they wander west, And are baffled and beaten and blown about By the winds of the wilderness of donbt: To stay at home is best. Then stay at home, my heart, and rest; The bird is safest in its nest; O'er all that flutter their wings and fly A hawk is hovering in the sky: To stay at home is best. LONGPELLOW.

The spell was broken. A movement that I made, a slight one, one so automatic so involuntary, that I could not possibly restrain it, caused Marie, to shift from her position, with noiseless yet with swiftest steps.' In a moment more the turning of her wheel informed me that she was winding flaxen threads again. The remainder of tIat evening passed with me, as you may well imagine, in idle fruitless dreams. Icould no longer bend my mind to bear upon my studies. My wandering thoughts were any where, and every where but not upon my work. Closing all my books I went to bed, but not to sleep. I was up again at daylight, and sought relief in study. But repose was as far from me as ever. I could not settle to my work. The glorious brightness of the rising sun; the balmy freshness of the...

THE TWO JUVENILE BRIGADES. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 4 May 1878

THE TWO JTUVENILE BBIGADES. TO THE EDITOR OP THU MERCUYT. Sir,--I would like through your columns to compliment the Union and the Volunteer Brigades upon their pluck, daring, and un tiring energy at the late fire in Nicholson's cellar, Smith street. While their elders contented themselves with squirting water in through the front, these youngsters hurried round to the back with two branches, and having dashed in the outside door, and also a second one leading to the cellar, they crawled in on hands and knees through smoke so dense that they had frequently to relieve one another. Ten minutes more and the fire would have broken into the shop, and then you can guess what the result would have been to shops as close as these, and any hesitation on the part of the boys, would not only have jeopardized the safety of the building but their own lives. I have the greater pleasure in testifying to the able assistance rendered by the two Juvenile Brigades frequently, I un derstand, the first a...

CORRESPONDENCE. We do not necessarily endorse the opinions of our correspondents. A CUPFUL OF BRAINS. TO THE EDITOR OF TH' -EaRCUTY. Sir,--Under the above heading, in your last issue, "An Interested One" attempts to correct some statements contained in recent report of Mr. Doubleday's Phren ology Essays. ,It has been said,." who drives fat oxen should himself be fat;" but be this as it may. I hold it true, that he who attempts corrections should himself be correct. As to crushing of head, and quantity of brain lost, I can say nothing. but doubt not Mr. Macallister will deal with this portion of your correspondent's letter. "An Interested One" points out that Mr. Macallister (if correctly reported) said "that the injured man had lost his powers of reflection and recollection" (this faculty spoken of in report as remembrance should have been reverence). Now I would point out to this "according. to fact" in dividual, that your report says nothing of the kind, and to prove this assertio...

NOTES AND COMMENTS. Fitzroy, 1/5/78. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 4 May 1878

NOTES AND COMMENTS. yB C .CosMOPo.rra. Fitzroy, 1 S 78. There are many methods of turning a penny practised by ingenious persons, and some of them are worthy of admiration, if only for their smartness. One of the most novel is that recently established by a man in Melbourne, who has opened an art-union or prize-distribution of photographs, not of celebrities, but each and everyone procur able at the photographers. The individual in question purchased all the photos he could, and sold chances at sixpence each, entitling the winner of a prize to one, two, or more cartes. Some acquaintances of mine, who pride themselves upon their exclusiveness, found that they, amongst others, were thus made common property " to be raffled for" by anyone choosing to invest a sixpence, and are complaining loudly of the injustice done by the men of the camera in disposing of what cannot but be looked upon only as private property. Whether there are any means by which the person or persons disposing of s...

FREE CHURCH CONTROVERSY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 4 May 1878

FREE CHURICH CONTROVERSY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MIEBCURY. Sir,--Mr. Kinsman having finished his lecture on "The Signs of the Times, or the Victorian Free Church of England." and -the correspondence thereon being, I pre sume, about closed, will you kindly grant me space to say I believe MIr. Kinsman has been sailing under false colors, inasmuch as there is no "Victorian Free Church. of England" in Abbotsford; there is "The Victorian Free Church" but not "of Eng land," neither in name nor manner of con ducting the service. And farther, Mr. Kinsman says, in your issue of Msrch 23rd. " We have revised the Catechism, etc.": 'Tis strange, if true! Where can the revised catechism be? I was connected -with:.the Sabbath school some few years and never saw or heard of one, and from inquiry I am led to believe the alteration has been made only in his own prayer-book, as there was nothing of the kind used in the school, and what is a catechism for but the instruction of the young?

SPASMn VIII. LOVE. A few days subsequent to my having seen her on the garden seat, suffused with tears, and gazing wistfully at the -wi.ndw of mýh rcm, Marie entered bringinmg with ~er- ona-a ayp few things requisite for my morning meal. On this occasion, I did not, as I had done on former ones, signify my con sciousness of her presence, by a smile alone, and an inclination ofthe head ; I asked her one or two questions, of no material import, but merely with the view of retaining her in the room. Marie, answered me indeed, with a yes or no, as either word was suitable, but with such an air of evident un mistakable constraint, and of being ill at ease, that more than once I found myself compelled to reiterate the question, It seemed to me, in truth, that the sound of my voice did really reach her ear, that it lingered there and that her heart, it echoed to it; but that the words, totally. devoid of the meaning I intended them to carry, seemed merely to recall distant happy recol lect...

THE MILITARY STRENGTH OF ENGLAND. [SPECTATOR—ENGLAND.] [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 4 May 1878

THE MILITARY STRENGTR OF ENGLAND. [8iCTr.TO1--ENGrLAN.] We have never been of the number of those who croak about the probable result of a contest between this country and the Russian Empire. We have seen England do too much-despatch 80,000 men, for example, on a sudden warning, to reconquer a continent. 14,000 miles away-to believe in her powerlessness, and have read the history of Europe too attentively to be frightened out of decency by the numbers of the Russian regiments or the mass of the Russian infantry. The Russian available force is not nearly'so superior to our own in effective strength! as was Napoleon's army, and .though the Russian soldier is worth twice what he was in the Crimea, serfdom having been abolished, he is still not a French man or a German. We believe that the British army, small as- it is, can be so used against a much greater one as to have almost the impact of a bullet on the human body, a bullet which, even if it misses a vital point, must be cut out wi...
