John Bunyan. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 21 June 1902

John Bunyan. This is not intended to be an essay, but just a few facts, plainly set forth, to guide the scholars of the Presbyterian Church of New South Wales who intend to write an essay on " The Life of John Buny*n." John Bunyan was born in the village of Elstow, a mile from Bedford, in the year 162B. His father was a tinker, and young John even tually followed the same trade. He had but little education, which he obtained at the Bedford Grammar School, to and from which he walked every day for some time. Almost the only thing he learnt was to read and write There are few particulars about his early life available, and these go to show that he was just an ordinary boy, little better but certainly no worse than the general run of English boys of his time. He has been rather unfortunate in his biographers; for they have (most of them) - accepted as literally true the bitter accusations which he himself in his later years hurled at his own youthful life. From the best authorities we ...

The Griffin Chain-Letter Scheme. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 21 June 1902

The Griffin Chain-Letter Scheme. The Miss Griffin " chain-letter scheme," (the utility of which at any time was doubtful) has assumed such proportions thut it is not only a nuieanco to the postal officials, but now has begun to delay the business correspondence, for the large number of chain letter© that come each mail (about 8000) has to be sorted to get a few business letters that may be among them, consequently letters often miss the suburban mails. This is bad enough, but when the promoters aro not able to deal with the rubbish at once, they let it remain at the Gr.P.O., using the building as a storo-room to suit their convenience. It is about time the authorities took stops to stop this nuisance, by requesting "America"to ceaso sending any letters § addressed. (

Sunday Desecration. HOLIDAY MAKING UNDER THE CLOAK OF RELIGION. SHOCKING SCENES AT MANLY AND SYDNEY. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 21 June 1902

Sunday Desecration. HOLIDAY MAKING UNDER THE CLOAK OF BELIGION. SHOCKING SCENES AT MANLY AND SYDNEY. ,By Tribune. Impelled by a desire to witness the feast of Corpus Christi, although not a believer in the fallacious doctrine of the real flesh and blood presence of Christ, I went on Sunday week to Manly, but never did I experience such a diffi culty before in reaching that place. The afternoon was fine, and I reached Circular Quay about 2 p.m., and here witnessed such a spectacle as I hope will never fall to mv lot to see again, espcciallyjon a Sunday afternoon, The forthcoming display at Manly had been freely discussed throughout the city duriug the week, and one would have thought the secretary, with his committee oi management would have made all needful preparation for the order and safety of the expected throng. But, upon enquiry, I was informed thut no preparation had been made for extra boats, and consequently those utilised were much overcrowded. .The scene at the whaii's po...

For Sunday Afternoon. OUR PRIESTLY PRIVILEGES. (A Sermon preached at the anniversary of P.C.E.U. at St. Barnabas' Church by REV. N JONES, M.A.) (Continued from last issue.) II.—AN ALTAR, WHEREOF THE JEWISH PRIESTS HAD NO RIGHTS TO EAT. [Newspaper Article] — Watchman — 21 June 1902

y For Sunday Afternoon. OUR PRIESTLY PRIVILEGES. (A Sermon preached at tlie anniversary of P.C.E.TJ. at St. Barnabas' Church lij Rev. N Jones, M.A.) (Continued from last issue.) H.—Ax Altaii, wheueof the Jewish Phiests had xo Right to Eat. An established heart needs food for its maintenance. One respect in which the Hebrew Christians, seemed at disadvantage in their exclusion from Judaism, was that they were cut off from all participation in the sacri ficial feasts. Under that system, portions of the sacrifices were oaten by the priests, other portions by the worshippers. It would seem that these Jewish, Christians were smarting under the taunt that they were unable to share in that privilege, being under the ban of Jewish excommunication. It was with a view to their encouragement, that the writer.reminds them of their right to a sacrifice whicli even the Jewish priests were cut off from. "AYe Christians," he says, " the priests of the new covenant, the family of the true Aaron, hav...

Lodge Social. Tlie Victoria L.O.L. No. 16 gave their annual social in tlie Protestant Hall, Sydney, on Friday 20th nit, with great success. The* Lodge socials are always well patronised, but this year was far the best. If it had not been for the good management of Mr. W. Burke "W.M., Mr. J. Jelfs, secretary, and the Master of ceremonies, the hall would have been too crowded for dancing. The decorations called forth much praise, the walls being nearly covered with (the patriotic colours) red white and blue muslins. The dais was draped with orange silt, interspersed with wliite muslin and palms. Three hundred and eighty people sat down to supper, which was laid in a room at the end of the gallery.

As the Duke of Alvn hii(l foreseen, the Prince of Orange was unable to hold his army together when his friends failed. There was never any serious engagement, the success of which would revive their drooping spirits. ■ Always being hnrassed upon their march, with skirmish after skirmish, ever reducing rations, and no money, the army lost all spirit, and dwindled away. The Prince tried time after time to tirco the Duke into pitched battle, but in vain. After much marching and counter marching, Stmsburg was reached, and there the army wns disbanded. All the money which the Prince could obtain was paid them. " He pawned all his camp' equipage, liis plate, his furniture." The Prince was'thus an exile | from the country to which he dared not return except with an army at his back. He therefore decided to join, for a short time, the army of Fr...

The Late Dean of Sydney. IN MEMORIAM SERVICES. Iii ineinoriam services for the late Dean of Sydney were held in St. Andrew's Cathedral on Sunday. , In the morning his Excellency, Sir Harry Bawson, K.C.B., and suite were present. The Archbishop of Sydney preached. the memorial sermou, and the anthem was sung to Sir John Cross's arrangement of the words 110 Saviour of the World, Who by Thy Cross and Precious Blood Hath Redeemed Us." The anthem was tlie more appropriate to the occasion because it contains the last words that were recognised by the late Dean when they were read to him some few hours before he so peace fully passed away. The Archbishop preached from the text, •" If any man serve me let him follow me, and where I am there shall also my servant be; if any man serve me, him will my Father honour," John xii., 26. The Archbishop said the text was a picture of the true servant of Christ—his path, his perseverance, his perfec tion : a path of constant service and a goal of •hea...
