L'ENVOI. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 22 June 1878

L'ENVOI. Readers of the tale that is now tardily brought to a close, it having been commenced in the columns of this journal on Saturday, March the second, of the present year, are apprised that apart from its inherently mournful character, a peculiarly unique and pathetic interest attaches to it in con nection with the persons of whose mis fortunes it is the record, and the purpose for which it was first given to the public. It is an extended adaptation in English of a little sketch of about half a-dozen pages, composed some many years since by a French lady of title, now no more, whose friendship it was the present writer's privilege to enjoy. She was a lady of most charitable and benevolent impulses, but, unfortunately for the poor and needy around her, not a rich one. Her anonymity, in accord ance with her strongly expressed wish, has hitherto been most scrupulously preserved by her friends and acquaint ances, and the writer does not feel him self justified in now breaking throu...

MARIE, an Emotional Story. (Adapted from the French of an anonymous Lady Writer) SPASM XII. FINALE.—Continued. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 22 June 1878

MARIE, an Emotional Story. (Adapted from the French of an anonymous Lady Writer) Br E. A. S~aso. SPASM XIL FINALE.-Continued. I arose, and plucking from the sands, where it had fallen, when first I cast it from me, the garland with which I had unknowingly adorned my head, again I threw it, but this time consciously, upon the smiling waves, saying " This is the only offering I can bestow upon my Charles, my loved one, who, by you, oh! ruthless waters, has been snatched from the loving arms that longed to enfold him in their fond embrace. May: Heaven kindly grant that the cruel sea that took him from me will bear it to him in the unknown depths in which he lies." On returning to theorttage, I learned from Gertrude that Charles before that he had 'started on the fatal voyage, which in this world had separated us for ever, had made a will, by which he had left me all his fortune, so that since my father's death, I had had more than ample means. Hearing this fresh evi dence of his deep c...

PAYMENT OF MEMBERS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 22 June 1878

PAYMENT OF MEMBERS. A resolution affirmatory of the principle of reimbursing members of Parliament, for their Parliamentary services, was considered and debated at the last meeting of the Albert-street Y.M.A. Mr. Dakin, in introducing the ques tion said, that as both Conservatives and Liberals were concerned in any endeavour to procure equitable Parlia mentary representation, he had no hesi tation in asking his fellow-members to consider this question as one of general policy, and not of " party." Assuming that it is desirable to secure the services of local practical men as representatives of country constituencies, he could conceive of no better method for attain ing this end than to reimburse them for any loss sustained in the service of their country, as it was very evident that local business men could, as a rule, ill afford to leave their business to take cair'e6ofitself while they looked after the interests of their countrymen. The principle of paid- Parliamentary repre senta...

PRECOCIOUS CHILDREN. (GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 22 June 1878

PRECOOIOUS CHILDREN. (GOEmNTLrx.'s IAOZzINP.) THESE precocious coached-up children are never well. Their mental excite ment keeps up a flush, which, like the excitement caused by strong drink in older children, looks like health but has no relation to it. If you look at the tongues of these children you see them to be furred or covered with many red points like a strawberry, or to be too red and very dry. If you inquire into the state of the appetite, you find that the appetite is capricious; that all kinds of strange foods are asked for, and that the stomach never seems to be in order. If you watch the face for long, you note that the frequent flush gives way to an unearthly paleness. If you watch the eyes, you observe that they gleam with light at one time and are dull, depressed, and sadat another, while they never are laughing eyes. Their brightness is the brightness of thought on the strain, an evanescent and danger ous phenomenon. If you feel the muscles, they are thin and fla...

POETRY. NIGHT-RHYMINGS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 22 June 1878

POETRY. NIGHT-RHY3 INGB. Night is on the weary earth, And the bright stars sparkle forth From 'mid gloomy hills of cloud, Like bridal-gems upon a shroud, That o'er heaven arched lies ! And they speak, from their clear eyes, Silent music, that distils Soft into the heart, and fills With a beauty, that is fraught With many a pleasure-bringing thought. Now the winds of heaven are loud! And their eloquence has bowed To its spell the trembling willow, Whose green branches are a pillow For the sleeping bards of day Who have hushed their tuneful lay And a kindred spirit, that dwells In sad silence, and oft tells Its tale to the waking morn, In big tear-drops, earthward borne. The tall poplars stand and shiver Nature's harpstrings-that for ever Shake with their own melodies ! Vainly-stately, old gum-trees Intervene their myriad leaves For the night-wind ever cleaves Its path o'er a way unknown, Singing, in a mystic tone, Measures, full of Poesy Strains o'erpent with harmony. And-whene'er th...

The Mercury. PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY, JUNE 22, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 22 June 1878

PUBUSHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vi?cil. SATURDAY. JUNE 22,. 1878. THE intelligence to the present, in relation to the Eastern Question, some what keeps us in suspense as to what will be the outcome of the Congressional proceedings at Berlin. We cannot for one moment flatter ourselves that the danger of war has passed. It is true that the telegrams seem to indicate a rapprochement of England and Russia, and the settlement of a possible basis whereupon the two Powers can come to a mutual understanding, and ageneral peace be secured. It is indeed to be hoped that this may be the outcome for at all times the arbitrament of war is to.be- deplored; and it is even questionable whether at any time .war results in the accomplishment of the objects for which it has been invoked But, however imuch we may desire as civilized beings to see disputed questions settled amicably, without disturbing national relations, we fear that.the.time has not yet dawned upon this mundane sphere, and that p...
