THE PAST, PRESENT, AND PROBABLE FUTURE OF THE SUN. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 18 May 1878

TH' PAST, PRESENT, AND PROBABLE FUTURE OF THE BUTN. At the meeting of the Albert-street Y.MLA., held on Friday the 10th inst, Mr. Kernot, M.A., C.E., read a paper upon the sun. After referring to the ancient specu lations on the subject, which were so fanci ful and unreasonable that Socrates is reported to have said that "' Speculators on the universe and the laws of the heavenly bodies are no better than madmen," the essayist remarked that the true beginnini of exact solar science dates from the time of Galileo and Copernicus; the latter of whom relegated the orb of day to its true position as centre of the planetary system, -whilst the former applied the telescope to the investigation of the physical features of its surface. The distance of the sun was first determined by Capt. Cook and others, by observations of the transit of Venus, and was found to exceed immensely all previous expectations, being no less than 95,298,260 miles instead of 5,000,000 or thereabouts, as previously ...

The old man got most excited in offering a preliminary objection to the summons. He said he had been summoned in a wrong name; his name was John Williams. John rose to eloquence when he said, "I emi grated to Sydney as John Williams, I kept an hotel as John Williams, I sued the Union bank as John Williams, I, I, I-" But here the bench interposed, they des pised John's eloquence and silenced him. John. however, would not be silenced, and excused his loud talk and gesticulature on the ground that he was a little deaf. The son then called witnesses to substantiate his statements. The father got into the bor, and began a spech : " Your worship...

TERRIBLE SUFFERINGS IN THE BUSH. MURRURUNDI TIMES, MAY 4. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 18 May 1878

TERRIBLE SUFFERINGS IN THE BUSH. uaxuamURU TIIaES, x&T 4. Mr. Keys, a butcher of Quirindi, having purchased a number of sheep from Mr. Berry, a selector on a station, went, in company with Mr. Henry O'Brien, to bring the sheep into town. They arrived in the neighbodrhood of the selection, and found that a fence had been erected across the old track. Keys, whose horse went over the fence, proceeded towards his destination; O'Brien, unable to get his horse over, followed the line by the fence up to the mountain for. about a mile. He then gave up the idea of getting round the fence, made an opening by strapping the wires together, and led his horse over. Seeking to return to the plain, he proceeded about 500 yards, when he fell about 6 feet over a ledge, and for fear of further accident he resolved to remain there for the night. In a short time, however, he thought it better to make for the level country in search of some hospitable roof. But within five or six yards of where h...

NOTES AND COMMENTS. Fitzroy, 16578. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 18 May 1878

NOTES AND COMMENTS. BY CosiOPOLITE. Fitzroy, 16 j 5] 78. The dog and goat nuisance still continues -to draw complaints from various portions of the cities, and letters are now and then appearing in the llfercury relative thereto. Why; with a regular staff of police and inspectors, these things are I am unable to say, but that there are good grounds for complaint nobody will deny. There is no objection to persons keeping either of these animals, for their own delecta tion and profit, but there is every ob jection to their so doing at the expense and annoyance of their neighbors. One thing I would suggest is that periodical and systematic visits should be made and all animals found wandering or unregistered should be sent to the Zoological Gardens to serve as food for the animals confined therein. Portraits are very useful as well as ornamental things, and the various uses to which they are put might fill a book, let alone a paragraph in a newspaper. How they are used by lovers and fr...

TOLL DIFFICULTY IN JIKA. The present state of things in the Shire of Jika are looking anything but cheerful The main road is rapidly becoming full of holes, and there is not one shiling available for erxenditure on the road, or .for other important work required in the shire. The Council, trusting to the good faith and in tegrity of a Government, were induced to replace an old rickety and dangerous bridge, by building one of the most sub stantial bridges in the colony, worthy the principal Northern approach to the city. This bridge was built upon the promises given by the Government of the day that the tolls should continue, half of the bridge is in Jika, and the other half- in Fitroy and Collingwood. both of whose councils cheer fuly waved their right to participate in the proceeds of the toll. When the bridge waa ctmplet-d both the Government and the Councils were highly satisfied with it, and 'Mr. T. Rawlinson, the engineer, was complimented on all sides at the result ef his skil...

The Mercury. PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY, MAY 18, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 18 May 1878

-PUBUSHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY. MAY 18, 1878. -- His Worship the Mayor of Fitzroy, Mr. Councillor SHOWERS, has struck out a course for himself to mark the term of his office as the first citizen of the City over which he presides. It is true he might have trod in the foot steps of some of his predecessors-and to a few of the citizens given invita tions to a banquet and by them have been styled a "Jolly good fellow," and all the other complimentary expressions of good feeling of those who had eaten and well drunk at his expense. Not so with His Worship. His method has been different, and will leave a more permanent result, and, a more abiding good. Taking a lively interest in the various institutions of the newly made City-and especially those hav ing for their object the training of the young, His Worship has sought to encourage and stimulate these by offer ing prizes for best efforts made by the children on certain tasks committed to them. With the School of...
