THE OLD PARISH CHURCH. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 13 July 1878

TS3 tRýLDP7Or8r ,CHURCH. .SBra, Yodr c6rrespondent, "B E. .?Inever made a greater mistake than when be wrote to'ddrrect what he terms"- a slight mistake" in my article on St. Mark's Church. and says the stnne was laid in 1852 by the Bishop, assisted by the Mayor of Melbourne, J: P. Smith. Esq. If he disbelieves my dates, allow me respectfully to refer him to the official publication of the Church, The Messenger, p. 255, also to the daily papers of those days. where he will find my dates were correct in writing-1st July, 1853, as the day when the stone was laid, and not 1852. Mr. Smith, certainly, was present, and I well remember his speech, and the suppressed smile his remarks caused when he addressed the company as "My brethren" and his explanation, when he observed'it, " that he was so accustomed to address the Freemasons that he fancied he was then speaking to. the craft." This is all the assistance he gave at the time, excepting his liberal donation afterwards. "E. S.," I am sur...

RAILWAY SCHEMES. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 13 July 1878

RAILw;VIP 'BIHLfMES. I response to0 s serosly etiidý, His Worship the Mayor; of fitzroy, CO. Showers, called a public meeting to conl aider the question of, the best railway accommodation. There were about- 150 persons present, His Worship occupying the chair. The chairman opened the meeting, and called upon Mr. Nichols, the secretary of the Central and Direct Railway L aguo. He. referred to the efforts of the League, and explained Millane's scheme. ' He said the League had hardly got their prospectus out when they heard, to their extreme sur prise, that the Hobson's Bay railway was to be purchased. He said that a man, without regard to politics, could join the League, which was for the good of the country. He had only one fault to find with Millane's scheme, although professionals had said the scheme was the right one, and it was highly approved: of by men of .authority. - One great difficulty in the scheme was that it did not affect personal interest. The little game of speculatio...

GAS CONSUMERS v. GAS COMPANY. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 13 July 1878

GAS CONSUMEE2S . GAS COMPANY. TO THE EDIrTO or THe H~ECUET. Sir.--A wide-spread feeling of dissatla faction exists amongst all classes of gas consumers in reference to the quality a meterage of the gas-many persons assert ing that they are charged double the rate they had previously paid. I beg to offer a simple and perfect solution of the measure ment question. There are some 3000 con esmers in the City of Collingwood. Let these consumers pay Id. per week each to a. fund for employing a Local Inspector of the meterage, and also to test the illdminat lng power of the gas. As the Company now marks on its dials the previous registe no difculty exists in efecting an easy check. The Local Inspector to measure oa the last days of each month, giving to each consumer a memorandum of the quantity consumed; a comparison would be set up and farther mismeasurement would be impossible. The amount so raised would pay an expert £300 pr annum. I for one, feel so strongly on the subject, thatI shal...

PEOPLE'S CONCERTS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 13 July 1878

PBOPLE'S CONCEBTS. TO TH zDIMro or F THE IEBCUT. DaEa SBi,-Allow me a space in your -alnable columns to say a few words upon -what I witnessed last Saturday evening. Mvin occasien to walk through Fitzroy I noticed some .long, showy bills, which in formed me that an entertainment, or People's Concert was to be held in the Fitzroy Town Hall. I, therefore, ventured to go to witness all I saw in print. To a certain extent I was not disappointed. But drasing towards the close the pianiste, thinking the time had expired, and all had been gone through, closed the proceedings with the National Anthem. This raised a confusion amongst the Collingwood and Fitzroy lads, who reckoned upon having the grand negro burlesque, until some young gentleman (having no connection with the _management) very kindly made an apology, which was followed by a sort of burlesque, lasting about five minutes. During that time, the ghost, who also occupied a part, hsi, perhaps, been indulging too much, leaned agains...

POPE AND HIS POETICAL WORKS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 13 July 1878

POPE AND HIS POETICAL WORKS. The above subject formed the theme for discussion.. at the .:l~t weekly meeting of the Albert-street Y. M. A. After briefly reviewing the leading in stances in the life of the poet, Mr. Hardy proceeded to discuss his works, and in the. course. of,:his ,observations said, in referene to the Essay on Man, the imputatirin whicli certainly struck hearers as ari unavoidable one, that the Essay savours more of fatalism than of a dread loathing of evil, and acqui escence in the,:moral !consciousness of both free will and responsibility is .dis laimd at the beginning, of the ?ni 've'rsal prayer, wihich breathes the true Christian spirit andthe highest philo. sophy. Pope has in his works shown us the exact portraiture of the time, a time glittering with gew-gaws, with diamond buckles and drawing-room beauty; but whatever the time was, he has shown it to us faithfully, and for this we owe him a debt of grati tude. The secret of his.verses is just this-that he foll...

THE OLD PARISH CHURCH—TWENTY-FIFTH ANNIVERSARY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 13 July 1878

THE OLD PARTEI CHUBC---TWENTY FIFTH ANNIVERSARY. The completion of a quarter of a century since its institution was fittingly commemo xated by the servicýs held in the church (St. Mark's) on Sunda:y last, the preachers being the incumbent in the morning, and the Lowd Bishop of Melbourne in the even in.. The musical portions rendered in the maornig were Smith's "Te Deum," and ";Jabilate," and hymns ancient and mndern. "May Jesus Christ be praised," an 1 "The ('hurch's One Foundation." The Incumbent p-eached from Acts xxviii v.15, " Whom when Paul saw he thanked God aud took courage." Drawing the parallel that even as Paul on this his approaching entry into that great city, Rome, with all its unknown dangers before him, needed cmfort, so the earnest workers in the church srely needed the sustaining aid of Christian fellow-hip in the midst of the nuancial ditliculties which beset them, further exhortini them all to be of one 'mind. laying aside individual differences of opinion on mino...

MELBOURNE HOSPITAL. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 13 July 1878

MELBOURNE HOSPL'AL. TO THE EDITOR OF THE KEBCCET. Sze,-Will you have the kindness to insert the following in reference to some irregularities still existing in the manage ment of the Melbourne Hospital It appears very surprising that aftar so many complaints of a similar nature that such should still continue to occur. On Wed nesday, the 3rd inst., a young man (a very near relative of mine) met with an accident of rather a serious nature by cutting his hand, at the base of the forefinger, by the slipping of a chisel he was using in his work as cabinet-maker. His employer im mediately took him to the Hospital, where the wound was sewn up and the hand put in a splint. He visited the hospital neaxt morning and was told to call on the follow ing Monday at 9 a.m. The hand became so painful during Sunday night that no sleep could be obtained. He reached the hospital half-an-hour before the time stated above, and waited until 12--no surgeon making his appearance during the whole of that ti...

Among the -peakers were men of intelligence, who gave expression to moderate and enlightened -iews; others there were who displayed a most lamentable ignorance, and classed with such was a gentleman of Brunswick atreet, who is a member of the the muni cipal counci. After reading from a paper a long string of assumed historical facts presumed to bear on the question being discussed, but which was altogether irrele -want, he made the astounding assertion that Victoria must speedily become the world's great emporium for woollen goods, inasmuch as nearly all the wool of the world- was 'the produce of this colony. "England." he exultingly exclaimed, "is not a wool-producing country. Scarcely a bale is to be found there as the growth of the island." Now, if I remember rightly, about 32.000,000 sheep are depastured on the land, and in the face of this what beco...

The Mercury. PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY, JULY 13, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 13 July 1878

On Thursday evening last the Fitzroy School of Design held its Annual Exhibition, and award of Prizes. The large Town Hall was crowded, and a goodly number of gentlemen were on the platform. There was an unmis- takeable evidence of a deep and lively interest manifested in the school, and we may say deservedly so. The pro gress of the Fitzroy school is an exem plification of what can be accomplished where due encouragement be given.     The Mayor and council of Fitzroy have for years manifested a substantial in terest in the school. The large hall with gas, and every facility is at the disposal of the school weekly, free of charge whatever, and annually a sum of £10 is voted towards the Prize Fund. This is often supplemented- by private gifts from some of the council ors and other gentlemen of Fitzroy. The Exhibition on Thursday evening fully justifies the interest, displayed. Never, perhaps, has the school on any previous occasion, succeeded so well as at t...
