CRICKET RESERVES, &c. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 2 November 1878

CRICKET RESERVES, 4c. A South Australian paper, has published the following reasons for not allowing enclosures of or exclusive privwl?es over portions of the parks: Because they are reserved for the public health, and recreation of citizens generally. Having been paid for from the general or local revenue, the public have a right to use them. Because as buildings extend in the sub ubrs, the parks will appear much smaller than while surrounded as at present by open lands. Because the parks add greatly to the beauty of the city. Because fences obstructing the view detract from the beauty of the parks. Because they aford grazing ground far horses and cows of the citizens, and so add to the city funds. Unless so grazed the grass would be too wet to walk over in winter and spring, too full of prickles in the summer, and be dangerous from fire in autumn. That grazing saves expense of mowing and clearing which would otherwise be necessary and costly; while the presence of the animals give...

REVIEW OF THE INDO-AFFGHAN QUESTION. "Scribendi recti, sapere est et principium et fons."-HORACE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 2 November 1878

REVIEW OF THE INDO APFGHAN QUESTION. BY GNOSTIKOS. " Scribendi recti, soapere est etpnrincipium e fons.":-HoBAcE. HAvleG traced the origin of the cir cumstances which have culminated in the present hostile movements, it will be appropriate here to give a brief out line of the country whose fluctuating policy may be regarded as instrumental in bringing matters to this issue. As it is not essential, however, for the purpose of this review to enter into details, the subject matter will be treated in a condensed form from a political, physical, social, and com mercial point of view. Its military importance has been already alluded to. A reference to a map of Asia will indicate the position of Afghanistan to be, as I have before pointed out, west of the British dependencies of the Punjaub and Scinde, east of the Persian province of Khorasan, north of Beloochistan, and south of the Independent Khanates of Turkistan. Its northern boundary line may~appear to be ambiguously described this wi...

CHAPTER III. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 2 November 1878

CHAPTER III. Mrs. Desmond was lying on her couch, with Piers beside her-he was a great favorite of hers, and many a pleasant hour' they spent together. "'Nina can think of nothing but this Hallow-een party," said Mrs. Desmond; "she is busy making cakes and things." At that moment Nina came in, a large white apron on up to her throat, her pretty arms bare to the elbow. -'Excuse me," she said, blushing and smiling, "but I have lost my recipe book. Oh, here it is! No, don't shake hands ; I am all over flour." SA pretty little housekeeper she made, with her bright eyes and silky curls in pretty disorder on her forehead. There was a strange expression on Piers's face as he looked at her. "May I come and help you ?" he asked gently. "I know it is an awfully bold request, but I have never seen a cake made, and have been only once in a- store-room-may I ?" Nina's store-room was her pride and her weakness. She looked at Piers and smiled. " Come, if you like, but you must be useful and help."...

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

CHAPTER II. A year passed away. It was autumn again. Piers sat alone in the solitary dining-room at Castle Mona, with a gloomy moody face, his eyes looking into the fire, his favorite dog lying un heeded at his feet, its wistful eyes seeking its master's face. Piers 'was thinking of a fair face surrounded by silky curls-the face that of late had haunted him. He was thinking of the eyes that had been all smiles for him till a few days ago. All was changed. She was no longer pretty, wilful Nina, but a young lady coldly indifferent both to his advances and his dis pleasure. "Why did I ever ask him here ?" thought Piers, and even as he thought, the subject of his meditations entered the room-a slight, graceful-looking young man, fashionably dressed, with blonde hair and whiskers, and large lazy blue eyes, the picture of a man of fashion, handsome and indolent. " Well, Vane, where have you been all the day since luncheon ?" "At Liscartha," replied Mr. Vane, leaning his arm on the chimney...

THE MANSFIELD OUTRAGE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 2 November 1878

THE MANSFIELD OUTRAGE. (BY OUR SPECIAL REPORTER.) IT is seldom that we are called upon to re- cord such an outrage as that which was committed in the Mansfield district on last Saturday. From a careful investigation of the whole affair, we have been enabled to gather the following narrative, which may interest our readers: For some years past a family named Kelly has resided at a place known as Greta, about twelve miles from Benalla. The family consists of two sons – Edward and Daniel – aged 22 and 19, – a mother, and four sisters. Some years ago the father, who was a well known character, died, and since that time the family have been living a sort of farm life. The two sons, who have always been known as hot-headed and impetuous youths, seem to have taken to a life of one continued scene of crime. In 1870, Edward Kelly was arrested on suspicion of being an accomplice of the notorious Power, but on his trial no satis- factory evidence was adduced, consequently he was discharged, bu...

PUBUSHED EVERY SATURDAY. Labor Omni liancit. SATURDAY, NOV. 2, 1878. THE application made by Mr. LA.G RIDGE M.P., in reference to the reserve in Victoria Park, was seriously considered and fully discussed at the meeting of the Collingwood Council, held on Wednesday evening last, when a recommendation of a committee of the whole Council to the effect that a public meeting should be called to testthe feel ings of the citizens on the question, was read. The recommendation was strongly andwith excellent sense oppesed by Crs. TURNER, SMITH, KEELE and HANSLOW who expressed their convictions that despite the' value (to their minds a fictitious one) which the enthusiasts of the Collingwood Cricket Club put upon a public meeting to test the question, it would fail most emphatically. We coincide with this opinion, but approve of the amendment that was ultimately carried, and which recommended the calling of a public meeting relative to the proposed cricket-ground, at which the whole question ...

A TOUR THROUGH THE UNITED STATES. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 9 November 1878

A TOUR THROUGH THE UNITED BTATES. [THE following is an extract from a letter received by a gentleman in this office from a lady friend now "doing a tour round the world, and will doubtless be perused with interest by our readers. -ED. M. " We left San Francisco by the over land route (by rail be it understood). The soot from the engine baffles all my former experience. Our mouths, noses, and eyes were pretty well stopped up with it; we would get out of our beds with faces more like our black steward than white men. We suffered a great deal of discomfort from the sand in crossing the prairies. The speed at which the engine went blowing it up in all directions. I must say great credit is due to the engine-drivers for their tact and practical driving skill. The American railway laws help to make them so. There are wnqrning posts here and there, according to the amount of danger to be apprehended; 'slaken speed to 6 miles or 1 mile an hour.' Looking out the windows I saw not more than 3...

THE PARKS FOR THE PEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury and Weekly Courier — 9 November 1878

THE PARKS FOR THE PEOPLE. . C. ?-r.?. DURING the past month, says a South Australian exchange, some cricketers got up petitions to the Corporation for portions of the Parks to be 'set apart for their exclusive use. Other citizens, who are averse-not to cricket-but to the cutting up of the Parks, and the fencing in of enclosures, got up a depu tation which protested against such applications being complied with. The deputation was courteously received by the City Council, and a promise given that their representations should not be overlooked. The cricketers have with drawn their claims for the present, seeing the need of moderating their demands. At the Annual meeting of the Cricketing Association, the Mayor, who presided, put the matter in the proper light, saying he was sure the Council desired to give facilities to cricketers generally, as evidenced by arrangements made by which thirty clubs were ac commodated. We hope to see hundreds of cricket ers, as well as players at other g...
