KHOUNG-FOU-TSEU AND MENG-TSEU. OR CONFUCIUS AND MENCIUS. THIRD ARTICLE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 26 January 1878

KHOUiNG-FOU-TSEU AND MENG-TSEU. OR CONFUCIUS AND ME YCIUS. BT EA. SAMSON. THIRD ARTICLE. IN order of time not first but in point of excellence pre-eminent among Chinese moralists and lawgivers is KHOUNG FOU-TSEU, whose numerous beauties were first unfolded to astonished European society by admiring European missionaries. Chief among whom originally was the celebrated French priest and servant, the Abbe Hue. CONFUCIUS, the generally accepted form of the philosopher's patronymic by western nations, is undoubtedly one of the greatest legislators the world has ever given birth to. His writings are superior in moral tone to those of Plato, and are second only in the gen eral excellence of their singleminded ness and purity of tone to the inspired words of the Saviour of mankind. They are held by the Chinese in such regard, that they are the actual and the only basis of all their public laws, and regn late the social intercourse even in its most trivial details of the more refined classes...

DASHING EXPLOIT OF ENGLISH CAVALRY. (GENTLEMAN'S MAGAZINE). [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 26 January 1878

DASHING EXPLOIT OF ENG LISH CAVALRY. (es rrxNm's B GAznI). The most dashing feat performed during the campaign in Flanders in 1794, was the action of Villiers-en Couche. The French had intercepted the Emperor of Germany on his way from Brussels to join the army. A force of cavalry, of which the van was composed, of 186 officers and men of the 15th, and 120 of the Leopold Hussars (Austrian), was sent out to drive off the French. The latter were found in force near Villiers-en-Couche. The supports missed their way, and General Otto, notwithstanding he had only 306 men to oppose 10,000 of the enemy, determined to attack at all hazards in order to save the Emperor. The 15th were ordered to attack in front, and the Leopold Hussars to turn the left flank. A strong body of skir mishers attempted in vain to check the advance. Onward- swept our men. The French cavalry now wheeled one ward and broke, unmasking a line of infantry and guns. Unappalled, the 15th dashed at the line and rode throu...

CHAPTER II. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 2 February 1878

CHAPTER II. NELLIE did not much enjoy her visit to Mrs. Benton's. She dearly loved her husband, and, since she had known him had never deliberately done anything displeasing to him before. Mr. Benton too, almost as soon as they were seated at luncheon, had asked her whether she had seen Mrs. Rayner since her marri age, and, on her replying in the negative, shook her head, saying regretfully "'What a pity, my dear! I never knew a mother and son so devoted to each other as those two were; but there-it's not your fault." Then there came sweeping across Nellie, cutting as an east wind, the conviction that she had done that which she had better have left undone. She did not feel nearly so certain that she was acting rightly as she had when she left home. Yet she could not be said to have repented; she still told herself that she would never have anything to do with Philip's people, He was all to her; why should she not be all to him? She argued after this fashion all the way home. The si...

KHOUNG-FOU-TSEU AND MENG-TSEU. OR CONFUCIUS AND MENCIUS. FOURTH ARTICLE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 2 February 1878

KIIOUNG-FOU-TSEU AND MENG-TSETU. OR CONFUCIUS AND MIENCIUS. BY E. A. SAMSON. FOURTH ARTICLE. KROUNG-FOU-TSEU (Confucius) held firmly to the opinion, and on every possible opportunity, as may be gleaned from his recorded conversations, and counsels to his followers, taught that the responsibilities of rulers were almost overwhelming, almost too. heavy to be borne. That their influence was so extended, so pervading, so ramified, and so powerful for good or for evil, that none but the most enlightened men should ever be entrusted with them. Feeling that it was his conse crated mission to instruct those who were invested with authority in the knowledge of how to discharge their duties efficaciously and honorably, he ever imposed on himself the dangerous office of counselling and advising them, as well as of remonstrating with them as occasion served. To compare small things with great, he must have been to the Emperor of his period what John Knox was to poor Queen Mary, though we have n...

"AND OBEY." A Tale. CHAPTER I. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 2 February 1878

"AND OBEY." A Tale. CHAPTER I. AT last Philip and Nellie were married. She had been very brave and patient, quite content to wait until he was ready; but still, when. after a three years' engagement, he said they would wait no longer, she was very glad to leave the peevish, fault-finding old aunt with whom she had lived, and on whom she was entirely dependent, and become mistress of the pretty little home he had prepared for her. There was but one bitter drop in their cup. His mother would not recognize her. Before they were married, she utterly ignored their engagement; and since then she had never called on Nellie. The old lady thought that her bright, brave, only son might have looked higher than the sunny-haired, portionless little niece of old Mrs. Trevor. Mrs. Rayner had done more than this; she had even chosen publicly to treat Nellie with insolent contempt. An old friend of hers-Philip's god mother, Mrs. Benton--charmed with Nellie's bright, pretty face, had thought it a pit...

Orders have been received at Woolwich for the manufacture of six teen-pounder field guns. It has also been determined that four 80.ton guns for the Inflexible are to be chambered forthwith.

At last ! upon Old England's shore he stands, A free man !-Yes, but in that very word The blood that comes through his veins stands still, And wells up to his face, while at the thought Of all his shame, he wishes that the earth Would open and engulph him-while each eye That scans his honest sunburnt counten ance Seems to him an accuser, branding him - With sins of which his soul was free, al though, Alas, to them no stranger. But again The thought of home awakes, and heedless quite Of all the busy throng that passes by He makes his way with eager haste to reach The country village where in youth he spent. Such days of innocence and joy 'Tis noontide, and upon the well known road The sun is shining from the heavens warm As when he last had trod that path His heart with strangely mingled feeling beats, While from the dusty road he turns aside To climb the gentle slope of verdant green Whence he may view the casket that pre serves In safety me...
