TAX ON BACHELORS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 20 July 1878

TAX ON BACHELORS. That it shall be the duty of every unmarried man, of the age of 25 years (and upwards), who is in receipt of over £150 per annum, to pay to the Treasurer of the colony the annual sum of £1," was the text of resolutions, pro posed by Mr. Dakin, and seconded by Mr. Mackenzie, at the parliamentary meeting of the Albert-street Young Men's Association, held last Friday week evening. In introducing the resolutions, Mr. Dakin said that the present admitted bad state of the colony, the presence in onr midst of the elements ofrevolution, the' large number of the unsettled bachelor-class in the colony, was to him a sufficient reason for urging the legislature to take steps to remedy the evil, as Dr. Balls-Headley, in a recent able article on the marriage question, had shown the large number (195,000) of bachelors and spinsters in our midst was an evil and, therefore, he thought the imposition of a tax on bachelors was not only needful but necessary. Even if the tax did not i...

PASSING EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 20 July 1878

PASSING EVENTS. Br Gossip. Two gentlemen went down to Queens cliffe a week-or two ago to have a look at the defence works. They walked a good deal during the day, and feeling tired, sat down on what seemed to them to be old nail cans. They smoked and talked quite comfortably for about ten minutes. "Wouldn't like to be in a Russian man.of-war trying to come through the Heads," said one of the gentlemen; those ,torpedoes are. not nice thiingto have under you. "No, rejoined the second-torpedoes. are no playthings." One of the artillerymen, who had been observing the gentlemen 1 for the last few minutes, savanced with an amused expression on his counte nance. "Gentlemen," he said, "you seem quite comfortable smoking away there; but, do you know what you are sitting on ?" "No," replied the gentle men. "Well," said the soldier, "each of those cans contain a torpedo : we are just about to lay them across the Heads." The gentlemen dropped their cigars. and sprang off their seats as if for t...

A STARTLING TRAGEDY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 20 July 1878

r_-A STARTLING TRAGEDY. -A errible tragedy occurred on the evening of the 5th April at the Opera h6nse! at Pawtucket, in the State of Lonisana, during one of those sensa tional 'and reckless exhibitions in marks manship, originally introduced on the stage by Frank Frayne and his wife, Miss Clara Butler; In this instance the holder of the rifle was a woman, and she instantly killed another woman who was holding the apple aimed at on her head.

CORRESPONDENCE. We do not necessaril endorse the opinions of our correspondents. THE "OLD" PARISH CHURCH. TO THE EDITOR OF THE KHECUET.

LOCAL RAILWAYS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 20 July 1878

LOCAL RAILWAYS. TO THE ED1TOE OF THE MZECIIT. Sir.-Wi you allow me space in your valuable columns to call the attention of the ratepayers to the necessity of bring?in pressure to bear on the Members for the district to advocate our just rights in the matter of railway accommodation. 'Tia not the cheap ride alone that is to be con sidered, but the facilities for bringing in wood at a reasonable rate. Fire is as necessary as food, and to persons like my self, with small incomes and large families, the cost for wood is something frightful. If we had the railway known as "Millane's,» which would run into the outlying districts, instead of the farmer burning his wood to clear his land, it could be brocght into the City at a reasonable price-the farmer would be better paid for his labor, and we would all be benefited. How the people can be so blind to their own interests pas ses my comprehension. The Members of Parliament, suppose, will da nothing un less they are forced. I suppose our Me...

THREATENING A JUDGE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 20 July 1878

THREATENING A JUDGE. -4--C At the Goulburn Court of Quarter Sessions, last week (says the 0. and M. Advertiser), a man named Abraham Watson was convicted of obtaining money under false pretences. At the close of the case Judge M'Farland said he must refer to circumstances that he had previously refrained from noticing. He had the previous morning received through the Goulburn post-office, as he was going into court, two letters, each, apparently, in the handwriting of a female, and purporting to come from different persons, though there was considerable resemblance in the writing. It was stated in each letter that Watson was not aware of its contents, or of the sending of it; but one letter pro fessed to come from a friend of his who considered him innocent of the charge preferred against him, and it contained deliberate, specific threats against His Honor's life, against that of a solicitor appearing for the prose cution, and against that of every person who should sit upon the tri...

SPORTS. HURLING. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 20 July 1878

SPORTS. HURLING. Melbourne v. Heidelberg.-Teams from these clubs met for the first time this season on the Madeline-street Reserve last Satur day. The day was all that could be desired, and the recent dry weather we have had left the ground in prime playing condition. Although the match was advertised to com mence at.2.30, through the unpunctua!ity of many of the Heidelberg players, it was quite half-past three before the ball was thrown up. The game was finely contested from start to finish and resulted in a draw, each team securing a goal. There was not what one would call a vast assemblage of spectators, but those there were very en-. thusiastic. The Heidelberg men played a strong, dashing game. Evidently they went to work with " a heart and a half," but I am afraid they allowed their eager ness, on many occasions, to overcome their judgment-they took their places, and played vigorously, I grant, but also dis orderly. I have not the slightest hesitation in saying the result would...
