THE UNEMPLOYED. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 1 June 1878

THE UN'EMPLOYED. TO THE EDITOR OP THE MERCURY. Sir,-The council of the City of Colling. wood having purchased some ten acres of Dight's Paddock for recreative purposes, and it being understood that the purchase money is to be spent in making streets, &c. in that locality, would it not be doing some good to the unemployed of Collingwood to push on with the work. at once, so as to give employment to unemployed ratepayers, and also getting the work done at a low figure. I hope some of our councillors will more in the matter, as the working classes do not want Soup Kitchens and Charity, but money for their honest toil. I remain, &c., - ABBCTSFORD.

Sir:-With " An Observer " of your last issue, permit to say that I have read over carefully the letters of the ]ev. Mr. Caton and Mr. N. Kinsman, but I cannot see ,where Mr. Kinsman complains in his letters that notice has been taken in the news papers of his lectures. I read of his com plaint against the Rev. Mr. Caton for charging him with what Mr. K. denies, of going out ofhis wayto speak disrespectfully of the Church of England, but I gather from his concluison, that he is rather pleased than offended, for there is no com plaint What he complains of is, I think, that DMr. Caton brings up an old report of sixteen years ago to show us. Mr. Caton says to you, Mr. Editor, "Well sir, I will give him, (Mr. Kinsman) a picture of him self as others see him," &c. Neither can I read when Mr. Kinsman has boasted of his labors in the Church of England, or talked so much; or so loudly of ...

THURSDAY HALF-HOLIDAY, TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 1 June 1878

THURSDAY HALF-HOLIDAY, TO THE EDIrOn OF THE MEECUET. Sir,-I am very glad indeed to see so many of the principal business establish ments in Collingwood and Fitzroy avail themselves of the 'ThursdayHalf-holiday, and close their places of business; because I consider it quite necessary that every person should receive a certain amount of recreation. What is the use of our lives if we have to toil like slaves to gain a living? As you are well aware some of the places of business are open from 7 a.m. till 11 and 12 p.m., and some are even later than that, and the employes are denied the privilege of transacting any business for themselves, not perhaps because their employers would begrudge them an hour or so occasionally, but because most of them would rather do -without than run the chance of being re fused. I believe you notified in your paper that four of the leading grocery establish .ments in Fitzroy would not join the Half holiday system, as they intended closing their shops every...

SPASM XI. RELIQULE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 1 June 1878

SPAsx XI. BELIQULE. On the-receipt of the Reverend M. uvoisin's letter, I immediately set out on.my return to Belleville. Some days necessarily elapsed before I got there, for when his letter reached me I was travelling in Switzerland. I at once proceeded to the Curate's residence and got from him the papers that he had refeired to. Once with them in my ppssession I -hastened with all the. spee1 might to my home, now hope lessly cheerless and desolate. But, in a measure, I was consoled for the death of Marie, for had I not within my-grasp the written evidence, as still in-my fatuity I thought, of-the-love that she had. borne ma, but which till now she.had so mystaeriously refu?edto. acknowledge to me. It was. a gloomy wintry evening-I - clutched nervously within my trembling' hand the small sacred deposit, that-the` venerable curate had been commissioned& by my gentle Marie, with her dying breath, to give to me. I thanked him courteously for, the care thathe- had had of Mari...

NOTES AND COMMENTS. Fitzroy, 29/5/78. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 1 June 1878

NOTES AND COMMENTS.. BY COSMOPOLITE. Fitzroy, 29 [ 5 j 78. A little piece of scan mag is at times refreshing to the ipuiblic, and the fol lowing little anecdote may, perhaps, cause some shadow of a smile on the countenances of a few of my readers. I do not vouch for its entire truthfulness, but will tell it as 'twas told to me, on good authority. A lady living in a suburb, not a 100 miles from the Melbourne Post Office, lately had the misfortune to be bereft of her. husband, and as may be supposed was incon solable. The day of the funeral came, and the corpse was conveyed to its silent home, amid the apparent grief of all concerned. But as someone says "sometimes these vehicles contain a deal of fun, these mourning coaches, when the funeral's done," so it turned out in this case, at least to a certain xte&nt. The dismal procession returned to the house of mourning, and one gentleman, seeking to console the berea?ed one, kindly offered himself as a successor to the "throne an...

PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vinait. ATURDAY. JUNE 1. 1878. A PioPosrrITI emanating from the Richmond Town Council has been submitted to the .various miunicipal councils, which is, we think, worthy of the most serious consideration of the. responsible bodies to whom it has been' addressed. The proposition we refer to is to the effect that a conference should be held to consider the propriety of united action in reference to such im portant matters as the raising of municipal loans, and the joint engage. ment 'of a consulting engineer of eminence and ability, to whom special questions in reference to drainage; and other dietrictworks of magnitude could be referred." There are other matters of minor importance suggested for discussion, but we regard the above as being those most worthy -of 'serious consideration. With regard to the financial question-we have little doubt that the councils would find a very great advantage in united action, and would be able to obtain money to...

The word perjury is derived from perjurii. It is defined by Sir Edward Coke to be "a crime committed when a lawful oath is ad. ministered, in some judicial proceedings to a person who swears wilfully, absolutely and falsely in a matter material to the issue or point in question; and subornation of per jury is the offence of procuring another to take such a false oath as constitutes per-. jury in the principal."

By no manner. of means; nor at any other time; because, it is to be hoped, he will be gentlemanly enough to spare her that humiliating necessity. Let him hand her his porte-monnaie every morning, with carte-blanche to help herself. The consequence would be, she would lose all desire for the contents, and hand it back, half the time without abstracting a single sou. It's astonishing men have no more diplomacy about such matters. I should like to be a husband. There are wives whomi K verily believe might be trusted to make way with a ten dollar bill without risk to connubial donor; I'm not speaking of those doll-baby libels upon womanhood, whose chief ambition is to be walking advertisements for the dressmaker; but the rational, refined, sensible woman,. who knows how to look like a lady on small means; who would both love and respect a man less forrequiring an account of every copper; but who...
