' It is not inly tli right, but the duty of every man to watch with diligence the administration of the law."-- Tu' DUE of \VrELL1aNTON. IN citing, memoriter, these words of his Grace the Commander of her Mrajesty's forces, and 'the invincible leader of the British army to victory over the most re nowned heroes of war-loving Franice, we Ihave been influenced in the selection by the character of the man. This prince of disciplinarians-this avowed supporter of -high Tory principles, has put upon record his sentiments, that the mal-administration of the laws is fraught~with more danger to ,.he people, than even the progress of an invading military foe. Imbued with the spirit which this doctrine inspires, 1we have hitherto acted in obedience to this supreme ldictum foi the guidance of puiblic journal ists.

MAURITIUS. [Newspaper Article] — Sydney Chronicle — 23 December 1846
MAURITIUS. -(From Le Cerneen, Sept. 17.) We abstained, from a feeling of delicacy which everyone will understand, from speaking publicly of the unfortunate occurrence which marked the stay ofItear-Admiral Dacres at Mauritius. Although we are entirely free from all the influences which prevent an incident of this nature being impartially estimated, -we considered it right to keep silent, the noise anild glare of publicity often teriding:to en venom a disagreement which took place in obscurity. But our Bourbon contemporaries having thought fit to follow a different'line of conduct, we can no* longer refrain from speaking of facts which passed, so to speak, before.our eyes, amd in the appreciation of which our words will derive some weight from our peculiar position, attached as we are by ties. which we look upon as equally serious and sacred to the two parties engaged in the dispute- to the French Consul, Mr. Barbet de Jouy, by community of origin, to Rear-Admiral Dacres by that of na...

Dublin: published by James Duffy, il, Wellington-quay. 1848. The history of every land is the history of -ts great men, or of.its revolutions ; for men are known 'by the mental or-niaterial changes they effect. The (biographies of the former are narratives of the latter. "The great man is the fact-the -revolution the theory. ,The story of both is the -same-; but:that of :the one gives a dianmatic insight into the'scenes and acts of which he wasea part, and excites our sym ',pathles for his success or his misfortune-that of 'the other places.before usea whole, 'boldly sketched, ,but deficient in miniature, and incites us to philose Iphise rather thanoto feel.' It may be that successful 'revolutions can be known and valued without biographies. They are facts whose origin-will be surely explained, who...
