TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 30 January 1875

TO TU ED ITOt OF TILE MERCURY. Sir-The more I think of the proposal which I have already made, viz., to have a local exhibition in the Fitzroy Town Hall preparatory to that to be hold in Latrobo Stroot in July, the more I am convinced of its practicability and utility. It has been suggested to me, however, that the fact of my having made the proposal is very likely to hinder its accomplishment, for the reason that many of those who ought to take the load in any such undertaking are so jealous of me and my doings, that they would not assist in any movement that I might he connected with, and the success of which would be likoly to improve my position with the public of this constituency. I cannot say, however, that I quite concur in this estimate of the " leading " men of this dis. triot, although I cannot deny that it has an appearance of truth I more especially as, if my memory serves me aright, the same statement was made by one of my oppo nents in the columns of your contemporary...

THE WATER OUTCRY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 30 January 1875

THE WATER OUTCRY. To THE EDITOR OF THE 3EItCURY. Sir--In the absence of some more excit ing topic, the Melbourne press seems to me to be needlessly courting their correspon dents to a grumbling agitation about the supply of water to some southern suburb? who, through their own neglect and want of due precaution, have been without water for several hours at a time during the past hot weather. Now, Sir, those people have boon warned summer aftbr summer of the probable scarcity, and advised to be careful and store-up against long continued hot weather, yet how few have even a cask, tub, or tank for the purpose, yet when the water is off they are the first to cry out, appeal to the Government and got special tanks, water carts, &c., provided for them I Now, these people have the water laid on: what would they say if they were like those of us on the north of the drain on Clifton Hlill, &c. P We have the mains running right through our district, yet our reasonable cry to ...

SCIENTIFIC SYMPATHY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 30 January 1875

SCIENTIFIC SYMPATIIY. On Friday evening, the 22nd inst., a very clever and interesting lecture on " Scientific Sympathy," delivered by Dr. Parker, in the City Temple, London, was read before the George street Methodist Young Men's Improvement Society, by the President, the Rev. R. Miller. The reader was listened to throughout with marked atten tion. It pictured Job in his distress re ceiving comfort from science, as represented by Huxley, the Moleculite, John Stuart, the Millite, and Tyndall, the Sadducee. We note one or two things which struck us as particularly forcible. When Job called out in the bitterness of his soul, " My children ! my children I whence have ye fled from me ?" Tyndall, the Sadducee, answered, " Thy children have melted into the infinite azure of the past, as all living things must melt. They have gone to the dust, but in their decomposition there will be liberated gases and other elements, which mingling with the same, otherwise flying about, and on the outloo...

SPORTING NEWS. CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 30 January 1875

SPORTING NEWS. CRICKET. The match between the E. C. Rifles and Abbotsford will be continued to-day. Last Saturday the play on the side of the Rifles was very poor as regards defending their wickets, and a great many runs were lost that might easily have boon obtained had they shown anything like ordinary pluck, as a rule they waited until the ball had boon fielded before they thought about running, evidently thinking as they had an up-hill game to play, they could take it easy, and not having Wardrop to captain them they were all at. sea in the field, ordering one another about in very un crioketlike style, They evidently were very much confused at the jollying of the Abbotsford men when they took the wickets, for the number of runs they allowed the Abbotsford to obtain from over throws was perfectly ridiculous. We would advise the Rifles' wicket-keeper to use his hands more and his knees loss in stopping a ball, and if he would close up to the wicket, instead of standing at short s...

A WEEK ON THE YARRA TRACK. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 30 January 1875

A WEEK ON T'HE YARRA TRACK. ' There are, I imagine, very few persons condemned to the daily monotony of town business life to whom there comes not at times the intense longing to be away, if only for a time, from the toil and hurry, the dust and worry of the city, to refresh the eye with the sight of green fields and waving trees, and, leaving all business cares and troubles behind, seek out some cool and leafy shade wherein to rest and be thank   full. And this desire I take to be one of the healthy natural instincts of the human mind, which lihe who utterly represses does so at greater cost than hl who moderately indulges: Time may lihe very precious to the business man, and it may seem alhnost impossible for him to absent himself from nhis business, but health and energy are indispensable to the proper employment of time, and these can only be preserved by obedi ence to tihe lws of Nature. Very strongly to me, at all events, a coulle of months ago, came this desire t...

COLLINGWOOD GAS COMPANY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 30 January 1875

COLLINGWOOD GAS COMPANY, Tl'hc half-yearly general meeting of the above company was held in their office, Swanston at., onWednesday. Mr. G. Harker was in the chair, and moved the adoption of the directors' report, which stated that the operations of the company were of a satis factory character, enabling the directors to recommend the usual dividend and bonus. The increased demand for gas made it necessary to enter into contracts for the erection of a new retort-house. The outlay on that and other works necessitated the issue of the balance of shares, for which the requisite authority was obtained twelve months ago. The chairman pointed out that the business of the company had doubled during the past five and a half years. For the half-yearondingJune, 1800, the company made forty-two million cubic feet of gas, the price of coal being at that time £1 7s. Id. per ton, and of gas 11s., per thousand. The capital at that time was £94,000. At the close of the last half-year the council de...

SATURDAY, JAN. 30, 1875. METEOROLOGICAL. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 30 January 1875

SATURDAY, JAN. 30, 1875. METEOROLOGICAL. Wa can scarcely be considered respon sible for what is now occurring in space, but it is very evident that some remarkable changes are in progress. Our planetary namesake is nearer to the Sun by 60,000,000 of miles, than this globe is, therefore, there is reason to believe that the inhabitants of Mercury find the atmosphere much warmer than it is in Australia. The hottest day ever experienced in this colony was January 14th, 1862, when the thermo meter indicated 160 degrees in the air: and we are rapidly approaching a similar temperature, for the quicksilver has already, this season, attained to 147 degrees. Now some of our readers may recollect that, according to recent intelligence, our friends in England had an excessively hot summer last June and July, while copious reports reached us of severe and fatal thunder. storms having visited London and its environs: when many people appar ently wise in their own conceits, and evidently arrogatin...
