SATURDAY, JUNE 19, 1875. TYPHOID FEVER. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 19 June 1875

SATURDAY, JUNE 19, 1875. T.YP-IOID FEVER; Twoi cises of typhoid have occurred at Richlriond; one case at Prahran; two similar cases in the Melbourne hospital; one case at ICow; and another case' at Footscray. ' AZRAEL, the 'angel. of death, is abroad; and consequently, the Emerald Hill Council have wisely begun to take cognizance of several stagnant waterholes in that district, which evolve the pestilential elements of malaria. We ask the Fitzroy and Collingwood Councils to adopt a similar action; as, in both towns, there remains much ivork for the scavengeoir. Hygienic and'sanitory laws are worth loss, if they are' not enforced by. local Boards of Health;, and,. hitherto, we have reason to, fear that they have.been shamefully ignored., ;We do not require elaborate reports, and impracticable suggestions :uponi :hese' subjects; ' but are more seriously concerned: for a prompt abatement of plublic nuisances. Strenuous efforts are being adopted for obtaining municipal loans, witha view...

FITZROY SCHOOL OF DESIGN. EXHIBITION AND MEETING IN THE TOWN HALL. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 19 June 1875

FITZROY SCHOOL OF DESIGN. EXHIBITION AND MEETING IN THE TOWN HALL. Tie annual exhibition in connection with the Fitzroy School of Design, was hold on Thursday evening in the Town Hall, Napier street. There was a very large attendance of both adults and children somoewhere about 1,000 persons being present. From the interest thus muni festod, it is clear that the burgesses of Fitzroy look with favor upon the school, and the Council may take it for granted that it has the approval of the town in the annual donation it makes to the school. The drawings this year generally were excellently executed, especially in the Mechanical, Architectural, and Figure classes. The Landscapes were not up to the mark, but we understand that the same attention has not been paid by the teachers to Landscape drawing as to the other classes. The meeting was presided over by his Worship the Mayor, who opened it with some brief remarks in reference to the school. Mr. Win. Howard Kneeoon read the report and b...

"I hear you have got a very good son," she continued, giving a new, and she hoped more fortunate, direction to the conversation, which as yet had been carried on through difficulties. "He micht be better and he micht be waur," was all that cantankerous Tibby would admit. " I want to get acquainted with him too," said my mother. * "That's easy done," said Tilhby, coolly.

FEMALE EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 19 June 1875

AN anonymous but amiable writer of an excellent book, entitled Belind. the Curtain, describes 'a comical incident, for the purpose of illustrating the great advantages accruing to the female sex from an acquisition of a domestic know . ledge. . Mrs. WiLuY is represented as standing beside a kitchen table, with her rich dress and. silk apron well sprinkled with flour, while her hands are completely covered with dough, from which the young married lady is vainly trying' to free them. Near to her was a quaitity of pastry in a mould ing pan, intended for pie crust, which was so wet up with buttermilk, that NETTIE CARROLL thought that it was meant for common shortened biscuit. It was not until she became a wife, and had to cook a dinner in an einorgeney, the servanthaving unceremoniously de camped, that Mrs. WELBY realized the awful responsibilities of her novel position. Her early training had been directed into totally different channels; fir havhig been educated at...

POETRY. THE MOON AND THE MAID. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 19 June 1875

POETRY. THE MOON AND THE MAID. A DAFPODIL-TINTED moon Stood in a cloudless sky, One windless eve in June, And glittered like an eye Whore the purest love is seeoon, Full-lighted from a heart, Whore never a care has boon Its peace and joy to part. I thought that the silent moon Was like a maid I know; Who perished, alas! too soon, As fades a drop of dew The night has laid on a rose, On which the sunlight streams, While the loving south wind blows, And lulls it into dreams That moon like the maiden seemed, So pallid, pure, and still; On my face it calmly beamed I felt its splendour fill Mine eyes, and the tears began To rise and warmly flow; Slowly and freely they ran, Ran with a silvery glow. I have thought that moon appeared To tell me of the dead, To solace my heart long soared, To tint the tears I shed. I faintly saw in its face, My loved and poor dead maid; Round whose lips a nameless grace, And changeless lustre played!

-IERE AND HEREAFTER: OR, PAST, PRESENT, A"D FUTURE. Continued from our last.) Being a key to "Lazarus of Bethany." An original Essay by ANDREW TIMBRELL. Paul told the Hebrews that. the story of Hagar and Ishmael was an allegory, involving spiritual truths which they had never suspected to exist in it: and that the veil which Moses had put over his face, concealing the Divine light, was still upon their own hearts, when Moses was read in the temple. What did this signify? That as the soul or living spirit requires a natural body for its external manifestations, so the living spirit of God's Word re. quired a material-form or body for its outward expression. As our natural body is feeble and imperfect, from its necessary limitation in time and space, and is thus but a poor and inadequate manifestation of the immortal soul within us, so the letter of the word expressed through the medium of ordinary language most comprehensible to humanity, reveals in its external image very little, in...

WOMAN'S RIGHTS BASED ON HER DUTIES. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 19 June 1875

WOMAN'S RIGHTS BASED ON SHER DUTIES. FROM THE INTELLECTUAL IEPOSITORY. Of late years an outcry, somewhat like the cry of an awaking child, has arisen for "Woman's Rights." For this sudden outcry one of two causes must exist, viz., that hitherto woman has either been insensible to her wrongs, or not awake to her rights. The suddenness and vehemence with which the call has arisen shows that probably the latter cause has been the most active, but just as children awaking out of sleep often cry con- fusedly for they know not what, in a vague sense, of unsatisfied desire, so it is doubtful whether those who seek woman's rights with such freshness of zeal, have a knowledge based upon reason as to what those rights really are. Our rights_have been well defined     as "those things which are needful for the performance of our duties;" all other things, however we may seem to be entitled t' them, being held simply by the permission 'of God and man. This definition i...
