A MODEL FUNERAL SERMON. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph, St Kilda, Prahran and South Yarra Guardian — 27 January 1866

A MO1DEL FUN ERAL SERiMON. It must bu particularly pleasing to a ublic man to reflect that, after his death, the question of his eternal salvation will be dis cussed in p lpits and freely advertised in the newspapers, Death may grin horribly :a ghastly smile, but it cannot be 'other.i than a consolation to know that by the side, and.in thie style, of 'f Do you bruise your oats yet ?" or, "Doyaou doqble up your perambulator ?" will figure the rather more delicate question, ', Is the great man's soul saved ?." It keeps his memory sweet and wholesome among the survivors, and fills them with a pethetic concern for him. True, there has generally been a foeling, outside the TInquisition at least, that the state of a man's soul is a thin which concerns no human being but himrself; that its salvation is a matter between himsel and thi Divine Judge; and that the rest of us, even iSwo had the wish to sit in the seat of judgment, can never by any possible in genuity or labour be sure that we h...

AN ADVENTURE WITH GIPSIES. (concluded from our last). The day following the interview in the lane, I walked to the cottage where my children Vere' staying, and found, to my great vaxation, that my boy was full of a meeting with [or qld iwoman whom he had met on the road, and who, after gaining his consent by 'f wonderful words," which had strangely fascinated his imagination, had examined his hand; learned when he was born and where, and returning scarcely an hour before my visit, had earnestly warned nurse not to suffer him out of her sight, say ing, f' that some terrible danger which she could forsee, but not describe, threatened him." " And, indeed, ma'am," said nurse, " though I hope I know better than to put faith in any such people as gipsies, I am sure that the old woman believes what she says, and wishes master Phillip well, for there was a look in her eyes that spoke truth, if ever I saw it on earth.'

BULLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph, St Kilda, Prahran and South Yarra Guardian — 27 January 1866

.3uLLS.-The Duke de Laval was renowned fIgri making bulls, so that, .as ordinarily tlappons in such cases, 'all that the wits of aris could devise were fathered upon him. Thus he is reported to have said, that he had received an anonymous letter signed by all the' officers nof' his regiment; and to have observed very quietly, that he had placed sofas in the four corners of his octagon sitting ioom. One of his sayings is shrewd enough, and smacks rather of the coldness of a con fiirmed egotist, than the giddy kindness of a bull-maker. He was rich, bhut always refused to lend money, "because," said he, "'thl best-thing that can happen is to get ny' money back." DILE~tmAs.-One of the most celebrated dilemmas. is'oone of the most ancietit. A rhetoricianl.hdd instructed a youth in the art of pleiding, on condition that hea was to be .remunerated only in case his pupil should 'gain the first cause in which hlie was engaged. The youth immediately brought an action against 'his teacher, of ...

THIl SNAiRE OF VANITY. ~ Mins. BAILEY.was . a-oman who protested agairist "fashionable calls." Yet she had a few acquaintances who made these occasional demands upon her time, and she always con trived to repay such debts soon after she had replenished her wardrobe; so that both spring and autumn these claims irere liquidated. She. sometimes had thougnt she wished she 3ould rid herself for ever of all attempts at gentility, for she was connected with an un ambitious husband,iwho thought so much more of comfort than style that she really felt as if her simple unpretending, old-fashioned manner of living comported ill with keeping such ac quaintances as for years, by a succession of circumstances, were thrown in her way. But the burden had long rested upon Mrs. Bailey's mind that she must discharge these obliga tions 5 so one bright morning, fresh from the hands of a mantua-makeri she proceeded to business.

THE FOLLY OF THREATS. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph, St Kilda, Prahran and South Yarra Guardian — 17 February 1866

THI FOLLY OF THREATS.-I once knew a mother, says Mrs. Pullas, who. insisted on her daughter learning a certain lesson, adding that she should be kept without food iunitil it was said. Now, it was easy to keep her child witkout food, but utterly impossible to compel her to learn a lesson; consequently, it became a trial of atrength between mother and child. What was tlb coasequence? The child was gifted with rare po.weris of endur a tce (and she had need of them ii afterlife); so the entire day passed, until, at twelve at night, the mother, really alarned, said, "You shall have your supper now, and go to bed; and to-morrow morning, before break fast, the lesson must be said.: "No,' returned the child; "you said I should have nothing to eat until I. had said my lesson; and as I don'tpsean to say it, I won't eat." Fatal spirit ! .It was clear the child would not give way, pnd the mother did. A lesson to aill mothers never, to. ttpr a threat which they cannot, or will' not, carry: out t...
