AMERICAN VIEWS OF THE ANGLO-TURKISH CONVENTION. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 14 September 1878

AMEIRIC ANV VIEW I OF THE AYGLO-TURKISH CONVENTION. The Nrew York Times, in speaking of the recent convention says:-"Cyprus Ihas become anbther Malta, and Asia Minor has been reduced to the rank of :''nhmere, in order that the Indian litssulmnan may not begin to recognise in the Czar 'the natural heir of the Sultan.' In other words, England's dip'omacy has snapped its fingers in the f..ce of as-embled Europe the moment that the settlement of the Eastern question visibly affected the prestige in virtue of which eighty thousand Eng men rule over two hundred and forty millions of Asiatics. The vanity of France may be hurt in a tender point by this new caveat against her rever sionary interest in the African States tributary to the Sultan ; Germany may he piqued at the advantage which has been taken of her position as mediator; and Russia may be enraged at the Punic faith which signs in the same hour a protocol conceding to her the firuits of her Asiatic conquests and a convention which...

The old man was oiling the hinges of the stove-door and carelessly singing one of Beethpven's best, when a middle aged woman entered the station and began : "Mr. Joy, are you a good man ?" "Wall, tolerable-tolerable," he re plied. "I never dropped a bad nickel into the street car-box, and I don't go fishing oil a Sunday." "Mr. Joy, I am canvasing for money to buy Bibles, and so forth, for the African h.eathen," she continued, as she showed a pass-book. " Are eh ? Does he seem to want a Bible I" " He does.

BLOODTHIRSTY MURDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 14 September 1878

BLOODTHIRSTY MURDERS A whole family has been murdered in Wales in a way which as the Spec tator remarks, recalls De Qnincey's account of the murders in Ratcliffe Highway years ago, ascribed to the mere thirst for slaughter. At Llan gibby, near Newport, Monmouthshire, a lad went to call a farm labourer. named Watkins to his work, when he saw the bodies of the man and his wife lying on the garden path, the throats of both being cut. Shortly after a labourer passing by saw smoke issuing from the cottage and made his way in with a companion. Upstairs they found the bodies of three children all dead-one lying with her head between a box and the bedstead, another under the bed, lying on its face, and the third in an inner room. The children were all young--eight, five, and four years of age. The wounds on the children were more severe than those of their parents, and it would seem as if the ftlther had been first attacked and stunned with a blunt instrument, his throat being afterwards cu...

The Mercury. PUBLISHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omnia Vincit. SATURDAY, SEPT. 14, 1878. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 14 September 1878

PUBSHED-EVERY SATURDAY.i SATURDAY, SEPT. 14, 1878. To s$ ourselves asoers e e us"is .a boon which the poet has declared to be worthy of the readiest acceptance. How far the gift is one to be desired, or to what extent it is at ill times beneficial is, however, open to iquestion. It is true thatinforming judgments concern ing ourselves, we are liable to be slightly influenced by our own self-love, but is also true that the judgmedtof othere respecting us may be equally warped by prejudice or ill-will Of the extent to w2eih judgment may be blinded in the mind of a writer by_ prejudice, a paragraph in Moidiy's Argus affords a very triting example. The writer, after describing the procession got up by Mr. MT~H W BuNETT; to advertise his temperance meeting on Saturday night, goes on to say "One must see a miscellaneous gathering passing through Collingwood-flat to realize how low the social scale descends even in Victoria, where Mr. Berry is laying the foundations of freedom so 'broad an...

FITZROY-THURSDAY, SEPT. 12th. Before Messrs. Marsden and McLean. John Wilson was fined 5s for being drunk and disorderly, as was Gordon Goodrich for a similar offence. Charles Flynn was charged with cruelty to a dog. Mr. McKean appeared for the defence. Mr. Suckling stated that he owned the dog. He was called home on Tuesday last and found it had its head split open. Mr. Cayzer stated that on the day in question he saw two men passing in front of his shop in Smith-street, one of them was apparently drunk and he (the witness) went out to save his window. The men cleared the window, and as they neared the dog, the defendant, who was carrying a rifle, turned round and struck the dog on the head with the muzzle end. Mr. Spaven corroborated this statement as regards the striking of the dog. Mr. Leslie. said he had attended the dog and explained his method of treatment. Mr. MeKean's defence was that his client was going along the street, and not seeing the dog accidently trod on its foot,...

THE SMALLEST KINGDOM IN THE WORLD. (CORR. N.Y. OBSERVER.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 21 September 1878

THE SMALLEST KINGDOM IN THE WORLD. (Cdos. N.Y. Ossiavas.) The gambling establishment at Mo naco is about the last that is left. I believe one is still licensed in an obscure canton in Switzerland. And if you ask why it flourishes here in the midst of civilization and Christianity I will tell you. Monaco is a kingdom, the smallest and most contemptible in the world. It is also one of the oldest, and perhaps the very oldest in Europe. It dates from the tenth century. On the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, at the foot of the Maritime Alps, three or four fishing and trading villages managed, with infinite and foolish sacrifices, to make themselves into a separate state, over which the Grimaldi family has held precarious sway for a thousand years. In the chances and changes that have modified the map of Europe (in which Nice has been at one time in France, and then in Italy, and now in France again), the insignificance of Monaco has been its shield. Two of the towns that once belonged to...

REVIEW. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 21 September 1878

RE VIE W.* I nAVE received a volume of poetry called "The Maid of Millewa," by P. K. O'Hara. The volume, typographi cally, has a very neat and chaste appearance. Mr. O'Hara's versification I believe has hitherto been confined, principally, to the Australian Journal, the readers of which periodical will not be unacquainted with his style. I am of those who believe in the saying "poeta nascitur, non fit," that is to say, "a truc poet, a child of genius." " * Men endowed with highest gifts, The vision and the faculty divine." Yet even these may want the "accom plishment of verse," the art and culture necessary to a full development of the greatness of their endowments, and the neglect of such culture will be the shattering of all their brightest visions, and the downfall of their most sanguine hopes, and "For the laurel they may gain a scorn." In noticing Mr. O'Hara's poem, which is, by the way, a recognition of its merit I feel inclined to deal kindly with it, despite the unnecessary ...

ASSAULTIVNG A SCBHOOLMASTER. The recent altercation between a Mrs. Bull and Mr. Manchester, the head teacher of the Coburg State school, fcrmied the subject of an inquiry at the Coburg court on Tuesday, before Messrs. Ritchie and Anketell J.Ps. It appears, from the evidence of Mr. Manchester, that on the 4th inst. he had oc~asion fo punish two of Mrs. Bull's children for misconducting themselves, by keeping them in during the dinner hour, but sent the eldest for their dinner.

Mrs. Ball then came on the scene and demanded the child, at the same time requesting to know what right Mr. Manchester had to keep her children with out their dinner, and also assaulted him. Further evidence was taken; which went to show that Mrs. Ball had assaulted Mr. Manchester. For the d...
