CORRESPONDENCE. We do not necessarily endorse the opinions of our correspondents. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 19 January 1878

CORRESPONDENCE. We do not necessarily endorse the opinions of our   correspondents.       TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. SIR,-As I have noticed that your columns are open to all shades of opinion, I venture to offer a few remarks on Mr. Landridge's' remarkable speech at the Forresters' Hall on Monday evening.     While his remarks in reference to the Council, retrenchment, and the real issue before the country, are certainly open to grave criticism, I will content miyself with calling attention to the absurd paradox involved in his (Mr. Landridge's) remarks in re magistrates, justices of the peace, and members of Parliament. Now even Mr. Landridge will admit, I think, that while, an unlettered man may be able to dispense so-called justice at a Court of Petty Sessions, yet we have so many proofs of the stupidity of equity and law that "Justice's justice" has become a proverbial expression, also perhaps this gentleman, if...

BY THE CAMPASPE. A TALE [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 26 January 1878

BY THE CAMPASPE. A TALE BY ALBERT ELWELL. By the Campaspe: and the first grey streak Sent by the rising sun to wake the world Lest in his sudden coming he should break Too brightly upon Nature. and bedaze That which his will was but to bless Stealing with noiseles sleep and gentle touch O'er the wide woods and dewy plains, Drew back the veil of night, and softly breathed A benison o'er Nature's slumbering form. As when a mother in the early dawn Bends o'er her first-born babe with loving look, And draws the curtain from its tiny cot That the fresh light may play upon its face, And breathes a prayer to heaven for her loved charge, And by that very prayer awakes those :eyes That answer her in kindred sympathy: Thus did. day's harbinger, with magic wand, Kindle the scene to life that far and wide Awoke to greet the sun, who in his strength Appeared, with golden zone begirt, Rejoicing-" a strong man to run a race." Breathing amid the trees, the rustling leaves Whispered a salutation bac...

NOTES AND COMMENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 26 January 1878

NOTES AND COMMLENTS. BT COSMOPOLITE. So Reilly-street drain, at least the eastern portion of it, is to ie finished at last, for on Wednesday evening last the City Council determined to call for tenders for its completion. And al though "better late than never" is a very trite saying, the work will not be done a moment too soon, for the reeking mass of pestiferous filth that at present finds a lodgment in the drain is a standing disgrace to any place honored with the title of "city." Nor is the Fitzrov side in a much better condition, and any person having occasion to cross the Smith-street bridge had better plug his nose if he wants to escape a per fume which it would fail language to accurately describe.. There has been a good deal of evidence given this week in the Collingwood court in re ammonia works, but I haven't heard if any of those witnesses who described their sickly symptoms with a sort of morbid pleasure, and attribute their loss of appetite to the fames of said works gi...

POETRY BRIGHAM YOUNG. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 26 January 1878

POETRY BRIGHAM YOUNG. Dead is the Patriarch and Prophet Nay, smile not at his titles now; You do not hold them good-what of it? Leave the dead laurels on his brow; For there are those who have revered him, Whose firm belief From every taint of mortal weakness cleared him; Respect at least their grief. What though we knew him self-deluded In many things that he has done? Shall he for all time be denuded Of honor he has fairly won? The waste which he has filled with flowers Sings in praise; The usefulness we reckon but by houms Lasts till the end of days. We sneer at things which he held holy; Are we then certain of the fight? Is there no truth but in us solely Can we alone be right ? It may be-but who knows the morrow ? Faith may be strong, And yet the strongest may find to his sorrow That he alone is wrong. -San Francisco News-letter.

HEIDELBEEBG-Ionxrox, JAn. =. Before Messrs. Bond and 'Arthur, J.P'a. James Edoll and Samuel Southby, of Eltham, were charged with assaulting an old man named Hartley, at Alphington. In evidence it was proved that Hartley had given the defendants great provocation, and the case was dismissed. William Cassidy, licensee of the Sir Henry Barkley Hotel, Heidelberg, was charged with permitting one Winifred Pitt to be supplied with intoxicating drink an his licensed premises, he at the same time knowing 1Mrs. Pitt to be a prohibited person. From the evidence of Mr. Pitt, who was called for the proseention, it appears that irs. Pitt had watched her op portunity until Mr. Cassidy having gone out of the bar to get his tea, and leaving the bar in charge of a youth who was not ac quainted with Mrs. Pitt, and did not know that a prohibition had been issued aegainst serving her.

FREEMASONARY. (CHAMBER'S JOURNAL). [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 26 January 1878

FREEMASONARY. - (caamsx's souaNr.). The popular notion with respect to the masonic brotherhood is somewhat vague and uncertain. It is principally associated with curious ceremonies, terrible oaths and ordeals, a very close acquaintance with a red-hot poker, and an incandescent gridiron, lamb-skin aprons like a toll-collector's bag, mys terious prefixes and affixes to the mem bers' names, and frightful punishments to intruders, who are kept off by a dreadful officer called the Tyler. It is generally supposed that Freemasons are a band of brothers, fond of social inter course, sirloins, and champagne ; and that they are a set of jolly good fellows is a fact which nobody can deny. Now, a recent Papal allocution having excited public attention to the masonic body, we take this opportunity of giving our readers a little information concerning that secret institution. The Freemasons boast that their fraternity is one of the oldest institutions in existence, and has existed from a time whe...

PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. -Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY. JAN. 26. 1878. Ir is greatly to be regretted that at the 'presenttine--so 'critical to the world's weal, and so deeply important to these colonies-the electric cable should so often be interrupted, and the community placed at the disadvantage of being deprived of the intelligence which, for anything we know, may be fraught with vital consequences to all. Even in the event of war breaking out betwien 'England;and 'soim: of the continental nations-we are no alarmists and do not in the least fear any invasion of our shores by a hostile fleet-still we cannot but regard it as of an urgent necessity that the communication be tween the colonies and the mother country should, as far as possible, be secured .:without these constant inter ruptions. A' great deal has been said in relation to a duplicate cable, and we believe that steps have been taken for submitting proposals to the Australian colonies for the laying of a second cable, b...

GAUCHO ORSEHEdlE T.

He had never :been ridden before; and we were now to see an exhibition of the rare skill and courage in the saddle, for which the gaucho horsemen are famous. The horse, having been thrown by means of the lazo,as it has already been explained, the process of saddling and bridling shall be described in the graphic: and accurate language of Mr. Darwini "The :gaucho, sitting on the horse's neck, fixes a strong bridle, without a bit, to the lower jaw : this he does by passing a narrow thong through .the eye-holes at the end of the reins, and several, times round both :jaw and tongue. The two front legs are:now tied closely together with. a strong leather thong, fastened by a slip-knot.

ADVICE ON DARNING AND PIECICG. [TrE FIRESIDE.] I Ax not finding fault with the little bit of something tasty which you had always at hand to fill up spare minutes, to occupy your fingers while mamma's visitor interrupted your music. while papa suddenly favored you with a bit of the Times, or even while brothels, whose delicate constitutions prevent activity in the morning, were dawdling over their breakfast. Nor do I want to prevent you from keeping a really beautiful piece of "fancy" work, planned with art, to execute with taste, skill, and patience, when you can allow your self really elegant leisure. All that I find fault with is the disproportion, the incongruity, of saying that our clothes are worth the time required to make them look fine and dressy, and yet riot worth the time and patience to keep them sound and unblemished. So I hope you will take up the darning needles in good earnest. Darn stockings obliquely. For this hint I am indebted to an old gentlewoman indeed, who r...
