TO TH? IEDITOR oF TII MERCURY. Sir--Reforring to your loader.of Satur. . day ,last, allow me to say that 'I 'aiii the person who called at the Northcoto'Stato school on the 12th January, and with all respect for your opinion, I really caniot see that, it was ,my business to run about thb .country to make enquiries as to the cause of, 'the. teacher's absence from his school during school hours. When I called at the school and, saw the lady whom I presume. to ,be Mrs. Tobin, I told that lady that I called as a representative of the press, " to se how things wore going on." .- Now, aUsuming it to.be 'a fact that'Mr. Tobin was out making" a circuit of the distriot " to convey certain' information "to the parents: and. guardians .of the- children," surely it was a very easy thing for the lady to have told me as much. And although it may boe somewhat unoharitablo:to say so, I must confess !that the "circuit 'of the 'district." appears to .me to be an after thought. Admitting that it becam...

SATURDAY, FEB. 20, 1875. ANTI-SABBATARIANISM. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 20 February 1875

SATURDAY, FEB. 20, 1875. ANTI.-SABBATARAN1SM. SAYS TuIonMAs CAItLYLE, the pro foundest thinker of the present age, "the beginning and the cud of what is the matter with us in these days is, that we have forgotten God." And our modern philosopher is right. The generality of mankind are so absorbed by one dominant idea for the aceumula tion of material wealth, that the principles of practical Christianity have latterly hIcomo virtually ignored. An able writer informs us that we have inherited drunkards andl ritualists from Ephraim ; firmers and cattle breeders fiomn Reouhen; mariners fi'om Dan; lawyers firom Zohliltn ; soldiers and artillerymen fr0om Asher; but tidings of the Gospel fltom 3unjamtuil. Thu tendency of the times appears to be the simulation and not the exercise of a pure and undefiled sentiment. We make a display of the outward and visible form of Godliness, without any of its power or realities. Precepts are abundant, while action for good is only conspicuous for its sc...
