THE PASSOVER. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 September 1845

THE r A. S S O V E lt. To a stranger who at this season, or indeed on any Saturday throughout the year, strays from the throng and bustle of the Exchange or Bishopsgate into the purlieus of Houns dttch and St. Mary Axe, the transition is very striking. It is as if he had been trans- ported by some invisible agent, or as in the tinaccontable changes of dreams, from the bustle of high'Change to the stillness and silenc-j of a Sunday in Scotland. The shop windows are closed ; the few inhabitants who appear seated at their doors, or visible through tho windows, have donned their best attire ; there is a total abstinence from bu- siness ; the few who have occasion to move about tread lightly, and converse in whis- pers. The place is an oasis of quiet amid a world of turmoil and clatter-the fossilized Sabbath of a by-gone time imbedded in a ne« formation of creek-day business. These people are among, not of us. They are no longer compelled by law« to reside in ono quarter of tho city; ibu...

THE REPEAL ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 September 1845

THE KEl'EAL ASSOCIATION. MR. O'CONNELL for once was lead to spcuk civilly of Sir Janies Grnlinm, in con- sequence of Iiis retractation. At the Meeting of the Association he expressed himself thus : For the first time in his life he hail an opportunity of praising Sir Jame* Graham, and ho dui so now most cordially, on ac- count of the manliness hy which his speech was characterised. There was nothing more foolish than the cry of " inconsistency." When a man was in tho wronir, ii change in his conduct merely amounted to a declara- tion that ho was wiser to-day than he was yesterday. Who should presumí; lo say tnat because a man was mice wrung he was never to emerge from the precincts; of error? No; he held out both Iiis hands to Sir James Graham willi forgiveness for the past, and he should he placed on a pedestal I having inscribed on its base " Justice tn Ireland."

SIR JAMES GRAHAM. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 September 1845

SIR JAMES GRAHAM. SOME time ago Sir Janies Graham declared in the House of Commons, in reference to Ireland, that "concession had reached its utmost limits." For this expression, incon- sistent with the subsequent policy of minis- ters, and offensive in itself, he was culled to nccnunt hy Sir George Grey, when he made tho following retractation : - He begged the House to remember the circumstances under which it was said. Government had introduced measures to en- large the county franchise, and to mako the Municipal franchiso identical willi that of England. Simultaneously with those mea- sures, not proposed in an illiberal spirit, there were formidable demonstrations of physical force in Ireland, and Government brought forward tho Anns Hill; seeking to oppose mensures dangerous tn peace and to the country by the ordinary operation ol' the law. lu the debate on that bill he did use the expression that " concession had reached its utmtiñt limits." " I do not think it quite fair to fa...

THE JESUITS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 September 1845

THE JESUITS. THE reappearance of the Jesuits on the theatre of Europe threatens to revive those jealousies in the Roman Catholic States j so fatal to tho t order seventy years ago. j However, their efforts for ngnin subjecting the human mind to their order extend to these colonies, and it is time that the com- munity should bc warned. Thc " Society of Jesus" (ns these de- ceivers impiously call themselves,) our readers are aware, was organised by a mili- tary adventurer shortly ofter the Iteforma tion, whose immediate successor grafted on Iiis pinn on ecclesiastical despotism. No Prince ever aspired to power so absolute, or possessed subjects so uniformly obedient. Thc various classes and grades were ap- pointed to their stations hy the guidance of a Register, which exhibited the peculiar qualifications and dispositions of every member ¡ while other monastic orders or sects, of which the Church of Rome is made up, retained a more Republic/in form of Government, and confined their in...

THE BIBLE REJECTED. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 September 1845

I THE BIBLE REJECTED. "WD have learnt with surprize that not long since the Xibles hitherto used in the school at Port Arthur, -were packed up and sent nway, though a great number of the pri- soners in attendance are Protestants. We are aware that in consequence of the late edict of the Pope against thc reading of the Bible, the Roman Catholic Priest at Port Arthur may deem it his duty to oppose its perusal; but we should hope that nei- ther his Iscellency nor the Comptroller General would allow Protestant prisoners to be deprived of the "Word of God.
