THE GORHAM CONTROVERSY. Report of the Judgment of the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council in the case of Gorham versus the Bishop of Exeter, March 8, 1850, (Continued from our last,) [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 18 January 1851

THE GORHAM CONTROVERSY, Report of. the Judgment of the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council in the eqte of Gorham versus the Bishop of Exeter, March 8, JB50, : . (Continued from oar last,) Ruo!) considération», even if not strictly appli- cable to tlie case in question, yet tend to indicate the inconsistency of reproaching the recent Judg- ment, or tho Church of England, for the very qualities which, in the rest of our national in- stitutions, we honour with the highest _ com- mendation, and which, in our general history, . have led to such beneficial results. The wisest Germans feel, that to unsettle the equal relations established between the Roman Catholics and Protestants at the Peace of Westphalia, would be to undo the work which Providence has wrought among them by the infallible signs of thirty years .of misery and bloodshed. The wisest English- men should feel no less, that to cast either of the existing parties out of the Church of England, is to act in despite of that P...

SOCIAL PREJUDICES. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 18 January 1851

SOCIAL PREJUDICES. IN ono of tho recent " Contributions from Home," with which our excellent contem- porary has lately favoured us, from tho pen of Mr. Archibald Michie, wo fear its learned writer will not advance his repu- tation among us cither for gallantry or good sense. Tho article in question pro- fesses to describo tho writer's visit to tho Wittington Club, and in it ho gives us i his view of the social effect of such insti-1 tutions, ns regards tho prejudicial influ- ence which thoy oxorciso upon tho female character. Now wo aro very unwilling to placo our author among tho class of London correspondents who enlighten tho igno ramusscs of provincial towns with narra- tives purely iinnginnry, illustrative of tho important political and social influence which tho writors oxeroiso in tho great world at a distance. Tho high character of our old fellow-colonist excludes tho sup- position that ho would thus play upon our credulity, and yot tho naivete with which ho assumes our igno...

HYDRO-CARBON GAS. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 18 January 1851

HYDRO-CARBON GAS. A NUMBER, of influential gentlemen of this city, as our readers are no doubt aware, have been engaged for some weeks past in making arrangements for tho in- troduction into the colony of a new means of illumination called Hydro Carbon Gas. Their efforts, we are glad to perceive, have at length assumed a more definite form. A company has been started, with a pro- posed capital of ¿£20,000, in 4000 shares of £5 each. The prospectus, which has nppeared repeatedly in the public jour- nals, gives a full and lucid exposition of the advantages to be derived from the un- dertaking, and the plan for carrying it out. Thc cost of erecting the necessary appa- ratus and works, including the purchase of land, will not, it is calculated, exceed ono half that for coal gas, and thc expense of production, labour, wear and tear of retorts, will not amount to more than one third, while on the other hand, the innocuousness of tho new gas in point of health, and its superior power of il...

POLITICAL HYPOCRISY. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 18 January 1851

POLITICAL HYPOCRISY. IN the conclusion to tho extraordinary series of Latter-Day Pamphlets, through which Mr. Carlyle has recently been sedulously endeavouring to enlighten an ignorant world, render for ever turbid the " pure well of English undefiled," and hopelessly ruin his own literary reputa- tion, he asserts that the great crying evil of our times is tho prevalent practice amongst mankind of giving expression to sentiments which they do not nt heart believe. This vice, he is of opinion, is so universal and so baneful in its influence, that, until it is rooted out of society, there is no possibility of the long-expected millennial arriving, even though refrac- tory paupers wero to be shot in whole regiments, stump oratorseternally silenced, Utilitarianism finally put down, a monu- ment erected to Cromwell, and Hero Worship declared to be the established religion of every nation "from China to Peru." Tho trite truth, so wildly pro- pounded, is undeniable, and has found many a mo...

How many laughs has wisdom enjoyed at the cost of speculative lolly ! Thcro was ono Harvey, who avouched a discovery of the circulation of blood. And tho world laughed, nnd then rebuked him ; and finally, for his outrageous nonsense-punished him by depriving him ot his practice. There was ono Jenner who-having speculated upon the hands of certain dairy maids-theorised upon vnceino virus, and doclarcd that in tho cow he had found a remedy for small-pox. .

English ExtraoU. LEIGH HUNT AND THE "TIMES." (From the Weekly Ditpatch.) MR. EDITOR-Every now and then tho Times cati' aults tho gratification of that portion of the public which is thc lenst scrupulous about tho means, so that its gratification is but ministered to, by un« bagging sumo unlucky author and hounding upon him tho sharpest-toothed critic in its kennel. Famous sport ensues, for all except tho worried and lacerated party. He is regarded in tho same way as thc patient under tho operation which the doctor (in Zeluco) describes as being so very beautiful mid pleasant. " ' But it mdst have hurt the patient vevy much.' ' O, tho patient-your ladyship was thinking of the patient !' " In jus- tice to tho surgical amputator, it must be remarked that his funotion is often alike essential to the well-being of tho individual and of society.
