HALF-HOLIDAY MOVEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 18 May 1878

HALF - HOLIDAY MOVEMENT. Twa association formed for the purpose of securing the continuance of the above institution hi Fitzroy and Collingwood, celebrated their establishment by a torch light procession and public meeting on Thursday evening last. The procession whicli~ though not of great magnitude, attracted a large crowd of people, consisted of three fire brigades-Fitzroy, Colling wood, and Collingwood Union--headed by' the West Melbourne Town band and fol lowed by Taylor's band. The procession moved from the Fitzroy Town Hall about seven o'clock and paraded the principal streets in both suburbs, indulging in a little pyrotechnic display as they proceeded. It was expected that some of those shop keepers who will not or cannot see the utility of the half-holiday movement would suffer at the hands of the torch procession ists, but beyond a few stones thrown with out effect nothing serious occurred. The procession concluded its peripatetic display in front of the Fitzroy Town Hall ...

SPASM IX. DEPARTURE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 18 May 1878

SPASx IX. DEPARTURE. WI"'n more composed I endeavoured to account to myself for the eagerness with which she has sought to meet my look, before she left the room. With the selfish egotism natural to man, I interpreted the meaning of it into this : " She has wished to fill her soul with the recollection of my features before she retires to her rest. The memory of my face is to her a treasure, it is to her the riches that she carries nightly with her to her couch, Os a miser would his gold." Therefore, her silence notwithstand ing, I am persuaded that she loves me, but with maiden coyness, will not yet admit it. And so fostering with. delight, my unfortufnate delusion, I said within myself this is what she thinks : " Now I have all that I have craved for. What I sought so earnestly has at length been granted me. He has told me that he loves me. He has given me his heart's affections. He has called me his own dear one. I am assured that he,is mine. . I have at tained my dearest wish. A...

THREATENED PESTILENCE. "ARGUS" [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 18 May 1878

2~?REATEAENED PESTILENCE. "AeGUS" The ontlook everywhere is dark. The de p;resi~-n of tra-e at home and our political compica'icos abroad are sufficiently gloomy. But from India also comes- dis quieting news. The famine surmounted, its painful consequences are still felt. C:curs of insects havring escaped the birds, are ?cttling on the new crops, and devas tating again the newly planted regions. In China, the vastness of the desolation, which involves 70 millions of human souls, appals, but prevents any great effort to ameliorate their eu lurings, Sot the best-considered scheme, or the most energetic appliances, could overtake the dreadful need. Yet rwe shiver when we read of the prevailing horrors, The lett?'rs of missionaries report cannibalis m is increasing, and cases are m 1ntioncd e oen in which children have be.n boiled and eaten. The plains are sown with the dead, and the winds are airady gathering into their wings and shaking abroad the seeds of pestilence. Ncmrer home we a...

A NEW RUSH ON THE GOLD FIELDS! [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 18 May 1878

A NEWBTUSH ON THE GOLD PIELDB! BY M$ OAzCPBEL, Bush Missionary. What a busy and exciting scene is witnessed at any New Rush I A few hundreds of "shafts" are in the course of being "tried," but thousanids of claims are merely "shepherded." Many groups of gold seekers cluster and chat together in little circles; few men in' other spheres and positions in life can (in .point of intelligence, shrewdness, and knowledge of the world,) compete with the average gold miners ! . . . . Naturally enough, many disputes occur a'"out what precise quantities of auri ferous ground are owned by various "sets" of diggers, and occasionally, shortly after breakfast or during the day pugilistic encounters are by no means uncommon. As a rule diggers can fight a bit, and will stand no nonsense. . . The newsvendor is a prominent item in the list of surroundings and environ ments of the scene, shouting out luRtily -Argus! Age! ercury! &c. "Full accounts - of the war," ."Two Chinamen puddled to death,...

MARIE, an Emotional Story. (Adapted from the French of an anonymous Lady Writer) SPASM IX. DEPARTURE.—continued. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 25 May 1878

M' RI'E ad Efnotional- Stor.. (Adapted fr,o, the . Frnch of an anonymous liady Writer) Br E. A. SAixsor. Stvwng folbri ist.the bdden mysteries of the universe, and mind-enlarging science. :Woman's love, I said, is fleet ing, evanescent, and when attained we are not sure that we can keep it. While the love of science, and its culti vation, produces fruits, so free from spot or stain, that they ripen ever, and and for countless ages will never show the faintest sign of withering or decay. Reasoning thus, I strove to calm my. self, and accept without self-humiliation what I knew to be inevitable. Scarcely had I risen from my bed of feverish unrest, the morning following, and sought relief in study and my books, when Marie, gently knocking at my study door, asked if she might speak with me. On getting from me -a tardy perfunc tory permission-for having schooled myself into believing that all, was over now.between us, I?lddj not care to be disturbed, and have my thoughts again unsettled-...

DIRECT TAXATION. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 25 May 1878

DIRECT TAXATION. "The Economical Soundness of Direct Taxation as a means of revenue, and the advisability of.a gradual return to Freetrade," was the substance of the resolutions considered at the last Parlia mentairy meeting of the Albert-street Y.M.A. Mr. Atkinson, in introducing the subject, said that he should corfine his remarks to one subject, and that subject was one which had been very much talked about, but had not been by any means exhausted, viz.: the glorious principle of freedom of trade. In order to clear the way for the consideration of this subject, the speaker proceeded to argue that a Protective system was an evil, because it was opposed to the teachings of science, as attested by the writings of the greatest thinkers of the 19th century; was opposed to religion, because it taught that we should do unto others as we would they should not do to us; and was opposed to humanity, because it. hinders the growth of brotherhood between man and man, by erecting artificial b...

THE HEART. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 25 May 1878

STHE > HEART. *he streugthoi4he..heartis.. shown not only in. the force with which it sends out blood, but in the way in which some of its parts resist pressure. The heart has hitherto been spoken of as if it-were merely a double bag into each side of-which tnube. come.to fill it, and out of each side of which tubes go, through which it empties itself It is necessary now to think of each side as again divided into two parts,- one upper chamber and one lower. So that there are really four hollows or chambers in the heart, two dpper:and tio lower. These must, however, be thought of as in pairs. The two chambers of. the right side are quite separated from' those of the left' by a wall, in which there is not the smallest opening. But the chambers of each side have only, doors between them, doors which, on the right side, are three-leaved, and on the left side two-leaved. These doors or valves swing back freely in one direction. They let the blood go from the upper to the lower chambe...

TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 25 May 1878

TO THE EDITOR OF THE EECT1 T. Sir.-I have read over carefully the letters of the Rev. Mr. Caton and Yr. N. Kinsman, which have appeared in your columns, and beg to ask space for the fol lowing observations: Mr. Kinsman complains that notice has been taken in the newspapers of lectures addressed to his congregation, although those lectures appeared in the public press. I cannot but ask what he means by sending or allowing to be sent, to the newspapers lectures not intended for the public. Mr. Kinsman complains that person alities are used. He forgets that what the Queen, the two Archbishops, the bench of Bishops, the home and colonial clergy, the houses of Parliament, the two houses of Convocation,therepresentatives andsynods of the various colonial churches, are to the Church of England, that he is, in his own person, to the congregation which he calls the Free Church of England in Victoria. As it is impassible to consider the Church of England without reference to her pastors and h...

AlEBIN-SHIRE COUNOIL. j MAY 20. - After the minutes of the previous meet ing were read and confirmed, the following correspondence was dealt with. From Con. Fowler, resigning the office of In spector of Nuisance, in consequence of his removal from the district. The resignation was accepted, and Con. Bray appointed.

CORRESPONDENCE. We do not necessarily endorse the opinions of our correspondents. A MARKET IN COLLINGWOOD. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 25 May 1878

CORRESPONDENCE. We do not necessarily endorse the opinions cf our correspondents. A MARKET IN" COLLINGWOOD. TO THE EDITOn OF THE 3IEECtET. Sir.-In reading your issue of last week, E find a paragraph referring to the above subject, in which it appears that Mr. Cr. Walker stated that at the Emerald Hill market 300 carts attend. I do not know Mr. Walker nor his informant, but I do know that his statement is somewhat incorrect. I haveoften been to the Hill market and at the most crowded season 100 carts would be the outside number at any one time. To strike an average I should think that 50 producers would be maximum all the year round. Concerning the latter portion of the paragraph: if the portions of the streets mentioned are set aside for market pur poses they will not be used by market gardeners, but retail dealers, to the great injury of the shopkeepers of said city, and greatly depreciate the value of property in its neighborhood, so that whatever fees may be collected for permiss...

MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 25 May 1878

MISCELLANEOUS. As an example of American sympathy with England in the present crisis, we give the following extract from a sermon preached by the Rev. De Witt Talmage, at New York, on the 8th February:-" The third event of the week is volcanic. Turkey crushed, Russia triumphant, England aghast, the world confounded! What next? you ask. That's what all the world asks. -There has not been such an intense mo ment in European politics during our life time as this moment. If England halt, she becomes a second-rate power; if she march, then all Europe is an Armageddon. May the God of nations appear in this crisis. I am glad that the Turkish Empire has perished. She was an old butcher, and the most cheerful page of her history to me is her obituary. Where shall the miserable oldcarcase be buried? Where are the spades long enough to dig a hole deep enough? But I have no admiration for her conqueror, Russia. We have heard from that nation a great deal of snuffling cant about religion during ...

NOTES AND COMMENTS. Fitzroy, 23578. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 25 May 1878

NOTES AND COMMENTS. BY COSMOPOLtrE. Fitzroy, 23 5 [ 78. THE annual elections to fill the vacancies caused by efiluxion of time of three members of the City Councils of Fitzroy.and Collingwood, will shortly eventuate, and already those who take an interest in local politics are casting about for candidates to fill the said vacancies, or else debating the wisdom of returning those who, for the last three years, have occupied seats round the council tables in the beforementioned cities. There are, I believe, strenuous efforts being made to ensure a spirited contest in Fitzroy, and more than one gentleman is spoken of as being a prob able candidate, whilst equally ardent efforts are to be made by the friends of those now in the Council to ensure their retention of the seats. In Col lingwood similar tactics are to be pursued and some at least of the councillors are spoken of as being likely to obtain an outside seat. It would be premature as yet to give any definite views on the subject,...
