ADA AND HER COUSIN CHARLES, ; A TALE FOR VICTORIAN BOS AND GIRLS. BY E. A. SAMSON. CHAPTEB III. ADA FITZALLEN. Our young friend, Ada, had kept the most complete silence, never once join ing in the fray during the sparring match that had been going on between Edith and Mr. Pipkins, one in which, by-the-by, poor Mr. Pipkins received all.the hard knocks and all the punish= ment.

The Mercury. PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY, JULY 27, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 27 July 1878

THE MERCURY. PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY, JULY 27, 1878. The city councils of Fitzroy and Col- ingwood have separately made another effort to induce the state to grant a further sum of money to enable them to complete the unfinished portions of the Reilly street Drain, within their respective boundaries. The Minister of Public Works--MR. PATTERSON- upon whom they waited in reference to the matter, has so far considered the application as to promise that the work shall be inspected, and the question brought before the Government for its consideration. We may safely infer that it will ultimately be favourably met, and very probably a sum will be placed upon the estimates, under somewhat similar conditions as the last grant, and at no very distant date we may realize the completion of this very desirable work. That this will be no light boon to the inhabitants of the district, must be patent to all acquainted with the locality and its requirements. Even now a...

GERMAN IDEAS ON THE WAR SETTLEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 10 August 1878

GERMAN IDEAS ON THE WAR SETTLEMENT. WE extract the following article.from the Berlin Die Post, of the 10th May, and though the questions have been settled by a Congress, it will interest our readers as a European expression of opinion. Russia appears determined to part with the San Stefano Treaty, in order to avoid war with England. The Count has visited Prince BISMARCK with the view of ascertaining what German support'Russia may expect to keep English statesmen fast to the de. clarations they have made to Count ScsouvALooF respecting the limits within which they indicated they would keep themselves in the revision of the San Stefano Treaty. One may be sure that England does not move from the standpoint which she has taken up with so great advantage-namely, to de mand above everything the supremacy of the Congress over every alteration that this Treaty makes in the Treaty of 1856. England, in stoutly maintain ing this standpoint, has not condescend ed, and is hardly likely to condes...

PASSING EVENTS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 10 August 1878

PASSING EVENTS. '? BY GossIP. A Melbourne jeweller melted down. the other day, a large number of smooth silver coins received as collection money at one Melbourne church alone, during a very short period. That the collection plate should be made a vehicle to get rid of impassable or defaced money, seems rather strange; but then it is a trick nearly as old as Adam. In the fourth chapter of Genesis, we read that Cain sacrificed to the Lord, and that his sacrifice was not accepted. It was because Cain sacrificed what was of no use to himself, the very identical thing that is done by people in our own city, only under a slightly different form. The Jews too seemed to have been touched with the same complaint; for they were commanded by God, that everything sacrificed should be without blemish. It would be sheer folly to try to stop some people from giving bad money to the collection : a custom that has been in existence six thousand years cannot be abolished in a day. It will doubtless ...

MEDITATIONS OF PAUL PRY, JUN. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 10 August 1878

MEDITATIONS OF PAUL PRY, 3UN. Not a blessed bit of gossip have I heard for a whole week! Nobody run off with anybody's wife; not a single case of " Swartwouting;" no minister's been to the theatre; and my friend Tom, editor of the Sky Rocket (who never cares whether a rumour be true or false, or where it hits, so that it makes a para graph), is quite in despair. He's really afraid the world is growing virtuous says it would be a hundred dollars in his pocket to get hold of a bit of scandal in such a dearth of news; and if the accused party gets obstreperous, he'd just as liefpublish one side as the other! The more fuss the better; all he's afraid of is, they won't think it worth noticing. Ah! we've some new neighbour in that house; pretty woman there, at the window; glad of that! In the firstplace, it rests my eyes to look at them; in the next place, where there's a pretty woman, you may be morally certain there'll be mischief, sooner or later, i.e., if they don't have somebody like...

HURLING. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 10 August 1878

HURLING. The Collingwood hurlers met last Satur day, in Mr. Kinsella's paddock, for the purpose of playing a scratch match. The threatening aspect of the weather prevailed, a great many not putting in an appearance until late in the afternoon. At about half past three o'clock the captains (Messrs. Alfords and Carroll) were enabled to start the game with ten aside, this number being increased to sixteen aside. In the first half of the game Alford's side was credited with 3 goals hit by W. Cody to his opponent's nil, they having the wind in their favour, and no doubt the best of the first half of the game, as the ball was continually travelling from the centre of the ground to Carroll's goaL The usual half time being allowed, the game took a somewhatdifferent turn, and Carroll's menwired in and secured two goals hit by A. Locke and P. Dann, the other side only scoring two behinds the whole of this half of the game. The match, therefore, terminated in a win for Alford's side by three g...
