THE MODERN MOTHER. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 23 October 1875

THE MODERN MOTHER. FRno the first the mother, in the well. to-do classes, acts too much the part of the heu ostrich with her eggs. She trusts to the kindly influence of external circumstances rather than to her own care to make the hatching successful. Nurses, governesses, schools, in turn relieve her of the irk some duties of maternity. She sees her little ones at their stated hour, and for the other twenty-three leaves them to receive their first indelible impress from a class which she is never tired of disparaging. As the children grow older the women by whom they are moulded and coloured may become higher in the social and intellectual scale, but they are no more than before subordinated to the mother's personal supervision. She is mainly anxious that the girls shall be taught the correct shibboleth of their station; and for the rest, if she thinks at all, she cradles herself in a generous trust in the goodness of human nature, or the incorruptibility of her brood beyond that o...

FINANCIAL DELUSIONS IN ENGLAND IN 1720. (HARPER'S MAGAZINE.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 23 October 1875

FINANCIAL DELUSIONS IN " ENGLAND IN 1720. (nAxPEa's xAolzzNl.) IN London, besides the original South Sea Company, which began the frenzy, there were started in the course of a few 'months about 200 joint-stock schemes, many of which, as given in Anderson's "History of Commerce," are of almost incredible absurdity. The sum called for by these projects was £300,000,000 sterling, which was more than the value of all the land in Great Britain. Shares in Sir Richard Steele's "fish-pool for bringing fresh fish to London," brought £160 a sharef Men paid £70 each for "permits," which gave them merely the privilege of subscribing to a sail-cloth manufactur ing company not yet formed. There was, indeed, a great trade in "permits" to subscribe to companies only planned. Here are a feud of the schemes:-" For raising hemp in 'Pennsylvania;" " Puckle's machine gun;" " settling the Bahamas;" "wrecks to be fished for on the Irish coast;" " horse and cattle insuerance;" "insurance and improvement of...

THE LABOR MARKET. (FAMILY HERALD) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 23 October 1875

THE LABOR MARKET. And show has ,it bnded? .By. his having to submit to what .he opposed -by his going to work at 12J per cent' discount on his wiage , with"a certalnt. of 15 pdr cent. to follow. .Whys Because the demand for his labor will not justify the master's paying lhim that. The cost of labor in the last few years has risen enormously. But the industry of Belgium has risen toon. an she is underselling us in foreign markets. The work our enforced laziness made us refuse has fallen to her; consequently there has been a loss of five millions out of the pockets of the workers, an immense impost on the parishes, and all but a panic in the City (Monday, May 81st), which, caused by the breaking up of two iron companies, will drag others down. All this follows by a natural law. And we therefore hold that Mr. Joseph Arch, of whom we.have spoken as well as we can in No. 1626, and towards whom we are certainly well disposed, spoke most mischievously when he uttered those words: "The Brit...

This blunder is said to have been made when the town was divided into wards, and the boundary fixed at Reilly street, because the land northwards was all Government land, and only one house (Mr. M.
