TO THE EDITOR OF THE MAFFRA SPECTATOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 19 February 1883

TO TIS EDITOn OF THE MAPLA .Sr.OTATOIL SsI,-I have a special aversion to rushing into print,.but on. this occaion I fol 'myself thoroughly justified in doing so, since I have" right on my side, which.is. a possession that every newspaper correspondent cannot lay claim, to, especially those "shining lights" " Now or Never," " No Popery," and "An Elector of the Wllallla Division," whose letters of correspond. ence appeared in Saturday's issue of the I" Gippsland'. Mercury." Now I .think that paper,, by its ill-advised partizansllip, is. far more likely to injure than advance the cause of those candidates for. whom it is making such strenuois effortsb;ire to the sacrifice of truth. Every right-minded person, of whatever religion, cannot but dis. approve of the very undigilied' stand that the. "M3ercury" has taken in regard to the coming election conutest Not in the choice of its candidates, but in the means, itfwould'use'to secure their return, viz.: Tihe unjust and untruthful accusati...

..THE MONDAY MORNING, F4B.18le9,83. Ou, Libertys what rimes have been committed in tlhy. name ~" was the al most ;dispairing cry of a suffering heart amidst the horrors of the French Rev olution. In our happier and more peaceful times and country, the true patriot also hlas something to deplore, and he is at times tempted to exclaim, " Oh, Liberalism I What illiberal ideas are promulgated in thy name I" The Age newspaper'poses as the exponent of the most advanced liberalism of the colony, and we draw the attention of our readers to a leading article in that journal of Friday last, in which the. electors are implored to vote against any condidate who profossoe the Catholic faith. That a proposal should b cal I ieado to 'ostracise from politicallife a~fourth part of the pop. latinn, is thing difficult of belief in ourday adiid generation; but that it shouild Ibe made in. the name of liberalism is more incredible still.
