THE ANTIQUITY OF LIFE. SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 14 August 1875

THE ANTIQUITY OF LIFE. SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN. WHEN Lyell and the rest of the uni. formitarian school of geology began to attribute all geological changes to the protracted operation of the influences now remodelling the earth's surface- sunshine and showers, rivers and seas, arctic frosts and tropic heats, slow risings and sinkings of the earth's crust with their attendant quakings and volcanic outbursts, the growth of vegetation and the slowly accumulating deposits of coral polyps and other forms of animal life-it was objected that time was too short for such proceedings. Men had scarcely begun to question Usher's six thousand years of Biblical chronology, and their imnaginations wore incapable of spanning monotonous millenniums marked by no catastrophes. The Niagara could not have carved its {ix mile gorge at its present rate, for that would leave no time for antecedent operations ! By Darwin's day such objections were worn out. Men had become accustomed to granting hundreds of mill...

CONTEMPORARY OPINION. ARGUS, AUGUST 11th. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 14 August 1875

CONTEMPORARY OPINION. v ARGUS, AUGUST 11th. WJa published a letter yesterday, headed "Tetiiptation to Clerks," complaining of the wretched remuneration which is given in' inny instances to those who do ollico work. Our correspondent says that lie is in the employment of a tea merdhant as bookkeeper, his services in 'this capacity. being paid for at the rate of 20s. per week. This, as ho siays, "is a paltry salary," and we certainly wonder how any man has the heart to offer another who .servos him in a responsible capacity such a miseraible pittance.. However, we suppose that, stiictly, speaking, nothing can be said 'against his right to avail himself of the chances afforded by'the itato of'the 'labor market. 'The supply of clerks is greatly in excess of the demland, and while matters remain in this state they must necessarily be at the mercy of the employers. This is a sad state of affiirs, but we fear it' will remiaain unavoidable so'long as s'odity coni'iihes to regard the operati...

REPORTING ANNOYANCES. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 14 August 1875

REPORTING ANNOYANCES. IrT .ig always unpleasant to refuse comn pliance with any application, whenever it is respectfully and courteously urged; but it is scarcely' right to, request reporters 'for' the' press to expunge iextraordinary cases brought before the local magistrates. Those gentlemen bhavea specific ~ty.to?.perform, ,which they :cannot, be reasonably expected to renounce for simply private consider ations. ' Their functions are of a public character, and they are not supposed to be influenced neither by. fear nor favor; but it is exceedingly annoying for them ,to be asked to suppress reports, which it is their duty to. furnish, impartially and truthfully, irrespective'of personal feeling. Itie, therefore, extraordinary how, so many applications should be made to the reporter, for this journal, to excise from his 'copy,' any particular trial, i Some..few weeks back he was asked to suppress a case, where a clerk in the Education departinent; and in the receipt of '£3 10s. pe...

SATURDAY, AUG. 14, 1875. SCHOOLS OF DESIGN. IN consequence of the facilities which have of late years been afforded for an examination of works of art, the piublic taste has, been , very "considerably improved, while a love of the beautiful has been .created and nourish·d, as well as an earnest desire to imitate as far as possible, that which is so.admired.. In Fitzroy and, Collingwood, this feeling has 'been, greatly ,stiengtheeied: and, encouraged' by the prbehontation'' of prizes to successful' exhibitors' in the, local schools of design and works, while several employers have . acknowledged the benefits derived from those insti tutions in rendering, their workmen more skilful,' intelligent; and better able to execute their ;orddrs with 'ingenuity and precision.'

ENGLAND AND AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 14 August 1875

ENGLAND AND AMERICA. BY CHARLES REED), SQ., M.P. It is a singular lct tt that the children of Roman Catholic emigrants do not. as a rule remain Romanists. They come of age, and many being then American citizens, refuse longer to be controlled by the priests. In America the inducements to tom perance are great. You sit down to dinner, a tumbler-glass is placed before you, and no wine-glass; and iced water and 'iced milk are at your * right hand, and iced tea or coffee can be had for asking. Your neighbours, right and left, take no wine, and it is a remarkable thing to hear a champagne cork drawn; ale and beer are seldom called for, and no custom of drinking "for the good of the house" is observed. The fact is,, you are not expected to ,take strong d~ink. No doubt the climato is exhilarating, and lassitude and thtigue are loss feblt; 'no doubt there is drinking in the saloon, beneath the hotel, of liquors and ardent spirits to a largo extent by business men. But the fact remains that ...

Upon earth some people call this abstraction of mind, or absence of mind; but; it-is merely the caprice of the spirit, for -man is a spirit clothed with flesh, as.the body is by raiment-. when the raiment is cast off then the body appears naked: so, when the oexternal Is put aside, or the flesh is' put off, then the internal 'appcarf, or, in other iords, the spirit asserts.. its free. dom, untrammelled by the corporeal substance.
