The efforts made by the proprietors of The Mercury having met with that support so essential to the conducting of a local paper, they have much pleasure in informing their patrons, the advertisers, that The Mercury will be enlarged by an additional two pages.

REVIEW. Attitude of Modern Science to the Theology of the Bible; By Rev JOHN LEGGE, M.A., of Brighton. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 23 January 1875

REVIEW. Atltitude of Modern Science to the Theologiy of the Bible: By Rev. JoHis LGGoE, M.A., of Brighton. We have just received fi'rom the publishors a paml?hlot bearing the above title. It is an address delivered from the chair of the Congregational Union of London in October last. It deals, as its title indicates, with the speculations of the day, and that in a way which has, wo think, seldom been equalled and rarely surpassed. The essayist has grappled boldly and fearlessly with the opposing theories of schoolmon, and has brought such powers of mind and stores of' research to boear upon them, that the reader is forced to own that the opponents of religion and the Bible emomo olff but badly in the conflict. Not ,ontent with this, however, heo sots ;hem to light with each other, and by means of what lie terms a "Catechism of' Scientific Belief," shows how dina .uutrically opposed to each other uro lie leaders of thought in the opponents' camp. As an illustration we subjoin the fol...

The tea tables were well supplied, not entirely, however, by the ladies, for the bachelors of the place intimated their in tention of giving one, and this brought out the opposite, sex, "old maids," to give of their substance, and was the cause of much nmerriment.

AMERICAN RAILROAD. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 23 January 1875

AMERICAN RAILROAD. The traveller going West stops to the ticket office of the Pennsylvania, the Erie, or the New York Contral Railroad. He purchases his ticket for San Francisco. He gives his trunk to a baggage-master, gets for it a little piece of metal, and sees and cares for it no more. A porter shows him his place in a Pullman car. He takes his seat, pulls of his boots, puts on his slip pers, opens his bag, takes out his Iarper's Magazine, and his travelling cares are at an end. For six days and nights he is rolled swiftly across the continent. Engineers and conductors change. He is passed along from one railroad corporation to another. At night his seat becomes a bed, and. he sleeps as quietly, or nearly so, as if in his own bed at home. He traverses broad plains, passes over immense via. ducts, whirls swiftly over mountain torrents on iron bridges, climbs or pierces mountains; but lhe never leaves his parlour; if need be, his meals are brought to hin where he sits; and at leng...

Mr. Watts has boon laboring for some years, and with some success, to establish in the colony a new industry-that of perfume making. ED. From time imemorial mankind has used perflune, It may, thereobre, bhe argued that it supplies a want of human nature, From the earliest records perifmes have been used, by the most savago as well as thq highest civilized states of' society. Of our five ensoes, smelling has been treated with comlnparative indifroenco, howovor, as knowloedg progressos, the various faculties with which we are i endowed will become developed, and the faculty of smelling will meet with its share of tuition, as well as sight, hearing, touch, and taste. Now that common things are being taught to our youth, they should be shewn that when our sense of smelling is offended, the body will more or less indirectly suffer. If they are no...

WATER SUPPLY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 23 January 1875

WATER SUPPLY. IT is surprising that in a premier colony like Victoria. with an estimated revenue of three millions and a half in pounds sterling, but a population num boring only three-quartors of a million of souls, there should prevail such a chronic elemdnt of universal dissatisfac tion with regard to the most important desideratum of domesticlife, and yet such is the case, for every summer the people are nauseated with special notices issuing from the metropolitan water-supply department, which impose sundry grevious restrictions upon house holders generally, as to their application of that article. Last summer the people were encouraged to believe that an extra main from the Preston reservoir would, this year, abrogate the ex. podiency of interdicting the use of service-pipes for the purposes of irri gation; but we notice. with unfeigned regret, that the prohibitory order is again published, and that, while the departmental receipts accruing from present rates are expected, wit...

MISCELLANEOUS NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 23 January 1875

MISCELLANEOUS NEWS. At Fox's township, Now Zealand, a plac about five miles inland, and 500ft. above sea level, some workmen engaged on the Waimea water-race, discovered portions of the bones of a whale. From Fiji we learn that Dr Patorson was engaged in lancing the leg of a'patient in the presence of some of his black labourers. The on-lookers, seeing the blood flow, came to the conclusion that their master was being badly treated. Biding their oppor tunity, they waylaid the doctor as he was gutting into his boat and gave him a severe ducking. A mysteriois basket,, addressed to the stationmaster at Clapliam Junction, on be ing opened, was found to Icodtain a' livinig child.
