EMPIR (S) ICISMS. A MODEL MAYOR. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 27 February 1851

EMPIR (S ) I0IS1VÍS. A Monrcr, MAYOR,. TUB Model Mayor is a stout, bluff, burly, frcc-spokon, rough-mannered, John Bullish larson. I lu looks u snug well-to-do citizen, who takes good care of Xuuibor (ino. His dialect is' strictly popular : his speech abouuds with the slang phrases and vulgar expletives current in his . time, lío cares nothing nt all for Chesterfield's maxims, and still less for Lindley Murrxay's rules. Ho never read a book in his life, except tho '* Butcher's Ready Reckoner." lld has a supremo'coiiteuipt for hook-leam ing, but admits it " may bo all very well for them as likes it.".

THE WORKING O LASS KS Ob' G Uli AT UK ITA IN. Their present condition, and thu means o f their Improvement and Elevation. A Prize Essay. By the Rev. Samuel Cr; <¡re$n, A.D. CHAP. vu. Tin: CHUKCHI . The pecuniary exigencies.ot'th* Church, together . with the multiplication of ^societies-managed, ot' course, by their subscribers-to do the Church's own work,'have greatly contributed to briny about this state, of thin irs. lt is altogether deplorable. Far better that the Church were o-mteut ' to be poor than for it to make, huste to bo rich, in the ways we so often see. If there is one thing more than another asserted by the voluntary principle, it is that every gift to the cause of God should be willing. And if there is any meaning nt all in the Saviour's command, " Let not thy left baud know what thy right hand doe tb,"' it is that neither the riches nor. the munificence of any among his disciples should he blazoned abroad, or suffered to exalt them above the rest.

Ilia Worship the Mayor called on Mr. Huberts to. move the notice of motion on tho business paper in his name, whereupon he rose to address the Council, and, after reading1 the same, ho was about to enter upon an argument in support, when . . Councillor Driver moved the suspension of the 4th section of their standing orders, in justice to their chairman. Councillor Roberts could not be interrupted by this irregularity, and hoped that he would be. allowed, without further interference, to exercise his right to proceed, particularly as he had once been in possession of the chair. The Mayor ruled with Mr. Roberts, but stated it was open to any members, before the'termina nation of the debate or tho decision of the question, to renew , the application for its sus- pension.

REVIEW. CHAMBERS PAPERS FOR THE PEOPLE. VOL. IV. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 28 February 1851

REVIEW. CHAMBERS PAPERS FOR THE PEOPLE. VOL. IV. THESE " Papers for the People " are, as near as may be, the very perfection of popular litera- ture. We can hardly imagine anything better adapted to gratify the taste, and stimulate the mental activity of our working classes. The " Papers " are as cheap as literature can be made; they are elegantly printed and bound; they are varied and always inter- esting y and written in a style at once in- structive and captivating. The Messrs Chambers have a wonderful art of producing precisely the boole» which the immense class of readers amongst the less wealthy classes demand in these times. Their names will be reckoned amongst the number of the most enlightened philanthropists of the age. The volume before us contains-eight papers on various subjects.. One is a history of the Bourbon family ; another a historical account of California ; another, a biographical sketch of tue first of Frenchmen, Fenelon ; another, a portraiture of the every-da...

TUE WORKING- CLASSES OF GREAT . BRITAIN, - . Their prwnl condition, awl the mean* of mir. Improvement and Elevation, A Prize MwUf Mi/ the Rev, Samuel G, Green, 4,R, : .' CHAP, VII, - ME CUDBCIÍ. ( Continued from onr last.) Tt may again be alleged, that the reformation effected by total abstinence is imperfect sud " su- perficial.. This, again, is fully admitted. Such reformation does not contain within itself the diemen ts of its own perpetuity. Jt must be backed by some higher . principle than the con- viction of ad van tage that induces a man to take tho pledge, or the feeling of self-respect that urges him to keep it when taken ; else it will undoubtedly como to nought. But this is no more than might be said of any moral reform what- soever. And what is thô inference? Not, as- suredly, to chock it on that account, but to con- nect it with those principles which will ensure its strength and permanence-in other words, to ally it .with religion. Higher claims, I confess, than any wh...
