Previously to this event, the outlook was gloomy in the extreme ; biifc we will not attempt to paint, as in the great joy of the recent times of refreshing we have quite for gotten the former sorrow and the occasion for it. All of my friends who have perused the new penny Mercury are charmed with its excellent 'get-up,' its succinct yet varied and exhaustive ? information. All honour to an enterprise which ' began, as all worthy enterprises do, with its ' day of small things,' and can now take its stand on.

LATE GENERAL NEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 15 January 1894
LATE GENERAL NEWS. Oa Saturday Ministers were not so sanguine of success as they were a few days previously. One or two previous supporters of the Government have openly declared their intention of voting against the Ministry, while others have refused to say on which side of the House they will sit. It is the opinion ot the Government that Ministers cannot resign before the new Electoral Act comes into operation, and it is hinted that in the event of an adverse vote Parliament will be again prorogued until about the middle of April, when ^n appeal will be made to the people. Cardinal Moran yesterday performed the cer mony of opening the Vincentian Fathers' House of Missions at Asbfield. At the close of the ceremony a collection amounting to about £350 was taken up. On Saturday afternoon a race, held under the auspicies of the East Sydney Sailing Club, open to all boats in the harbour, was won by Volunteer, with Young Harry eecond, and Lady Low. .hird.

Late Commercial News. Sydney, Saturday evening. The second week of the year in the Stock and Share market has been as dull as the first. Not much money is offered for investment. But little stock comes into the market, there being scarcely any disposition to sell at the low prices current. A sale of Australian Joint Stock Bank negotiable deposit, with 10 months' accrued interest, was made to-day at 14s Gd. The other Bales of the week have included Aus tralean Joint Stock, Bank of New South Wales, Commercial of Sydney, and Union, the market being fairly steady. Steam companies' shares remain much about the same as last week, no busi ness having been done. Insurance shares are on the whole a trifle higher, one transaction in United being the only business reported. Australian Gas light remain steady, the sales of the week having been as before. A few transactions in miscellaneous stocks were recorded — in Colonial Sugar, which remain firm, and in Sydney Hydraulic, which are a trifle s...

ITEMS OF INTEREST. [ORIGINAL AND SELECTED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 15 January 1894
ITEMS OP INTEREST. [Original and Selected.] The Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Reid), has convened a meeting of the members of the Opposi tion at Parliament House, at 2.30 p.m., on Wed nesday next. By that time the policy of the Government will probably be announced, but independent of fchn infconfiinn nt Minmi-^o ™;*-v. regard to future work, the Opposition intends to attack it for high-handed actions in the past. If the Government is again defeated it doesn't follow that legislation will be impeded in any way, in fact Mr. Reid thinks the reverse would happen, as men would then be found who would, let the country have some of the measures that have so long been sought after. Mr. T. F. Quinlan, a West Australian member of Parliament, and one of the most popular men in Perth (W.A.), is at present on a visit to Sydney. He is inspecting the various institutions of the colony and studying our politics with a view of introducing reforms in West Australia. He has visited Sir George Dibbs a...
THE MAIL ARRANGEMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Maitland Daily Mercury — 15 January 1894
THE KAIL AEEANGEMEOTS. , A pabagbaph in our issue of Saturday in p i cxmed the public that the Poatmaster ' General had ngain taken up the subject of an accelerated overland mail service with ' Brisbane, and it is now thought that the northern mail can be got away a little earlier than at present, and thus enable it to reach its destination at an earlier hour than it now does, eleven o'clock at night. It was added that arrangements were making by the Rail way Department to start the Northern mail train from Sydney at five o'clock in the , afternoon instead of at a quarter past six , Later intelligence in to the effect that 4 45 is the hour proposed for starting from Sydney, and the Chief Commiaaioner talks about a second train to Newcastle, ' which wouid be a good deal of extra train mileage.' 'We wonder in the first place what con sideration has influenced MJr. Kidd to re-open this matter. 'We fancied that a final answer had recently been given, to the representa tions of the Queen...

A correspondent of the Westminster Gazette re calls an interesting little story of Sheridan, which may sooth all victims of the well-known philological law of the abnegation of the- unaccented syllable : At the trial of Warren Hastings, Sheridao, in the fn.iiiniisrMssn.o'niii which he described the autrustoess of the gathering— the rank and fashion, the military glory, the science, art, and literature that were represented there — spoke (or was repor bod as having spoken) of ' the luminous page of Gibbon.' The vain historian was profoundly affected by the com pliment. Then camo a time when a common friend told Sheridau how pleased Gibbon was with this recognition. ' Oh,' replied Sherry with a chuckle, ' what I spoke of. was. the .voluminous page of Gibbon.''
