CURRENT TOPICS. THE LOGAN AND DOWNS ELECTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 15 May 1875
I CURRENT TOPICS. f THE LOGAN AXD DOWNS ELECTIONS. The lamentable waste of public time which often occurs in our Legislative Assembly is much to be deprecated. Sometimes die mischief arises from rollicking members -of Parliament, who dearly love to play practical jokes at die public expense. At other times determined opposition to a popular and necessary measure carries die delibera tions of hon. members into die small hours, when the business is rushed through with reckless haste. But there are occasions when a Minister of die Crown, confident in his majority, and in die servile blindness of fus fol lowers, attempts to ride roughshod over that section of the House which presumes to think for itself or own to die possession of con scientious scruples. In this last category must be placed die occurrence of Toes day week, when the Assembly wasted six precious hours in a wrangle over die ladia of Mr. James Gibson, the Retum ing-officer for die Logan. This gentleman was pretty truly de ...

MR. M[?]WRAITH'S RETIREMENT. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 15 May 1875
MB. MILWRilTH'S EETTREMEKT. The details of the padiamentarv fracat which gave zest to the otherwise dull routine of the first week's proceedings of die present session, are now before us. As the telegraphic information miKr^trA the incident reflects gravely upon the veracity of His Excellency's chief adviser, and thus gives to die outer world but a sorry impression of the morality which passes muster in our little political circle. The occurrence is much to be deplored, yet it is but the unveiling of an evil which has long been known to exist The Macauster Cabinet was from the first an unholy combination. Under the flimsy but popular guise of T ilwralism, a Ministry was formed in whose collective integrity it was impossible for any but the most uninformed or prejudiced par tisan to repose confidence. The Premier was a man of notorious poli tical profligacy, and of his five associates two bad acquired unenviable distinction. The rgnummg members of the Cabinet were 'respectable, and i...

This will be a sur prise for both sides of the House. Not only would the Government and die Opposition have each been better pleased if their respective candidates had won. but the Conservatives would have pre ferred the liberal working man, and the Liberals the staunch Conservative, to Dr.£enealy. They know that he can speak by the month together ; that it is next to impossible to put him down ; and that if this feat be accomplished for a moment, he win start up the next more loquacious than ever.

OBT DBBATUJU 800EBSBB. BEBtitsa Soeietigi are places arbere men with white frees meet totalkacroa* s table at one another. They pat the moat unwell man in a chair, and when they are talking they an often offensi»e to him 'Sir.' Some of. them when the? stand op to talk, get very red in the (aces and. look into the gaslight and bite their knuckles, and sway- their bodies, and become so very tick that they ait down without saying a word. This is extremely imaging, and makes everyone laugh. The men who are not speaking draw (aces with quill pens on blotting paper, and wink and smile and shake their heads at one another. This is done for a good motive, to make him who ie speaking comfortable and at his ease. When a man stands op, the first thing he says is, ' Mr. Chairman andgenttemaxt, the subject Cor debate this evening is whether Capital Punishment ought to be abolished or not Now, Mr. Chair man, I think' — and then, in place of thinking, which is a very wholesome and annntageona thin...

Wbenlgot out into the busy streets, Iwas almost inclined to laugh at myself, for my aupei' stitious fancies. The matter-of-fact neonle mor mg about tbc streets, the children pjaying in the square, the passing cabs, the gay shops, seemed to render the idea of any aopematural visitant so absurd, that I almost regretted any arraneement had been made for rflyretnm. When I returned to the square at about half past nine, the lamps were lh\ and the partial darkness of a fine summer night had aettbd softly over the gnat city. I lingered » few minutes on the door-step to finish my cigar in the cool air, so refreshing after the heat of the lone summer dsy. Ulere was a deep orange glowstul Ungeriog' in the north western sky, and the last low twitter of the birds among the trees in the square eameeoftly to the ear. All was so p—'--fc»t around, t...
Mr. Ruskin on Bishops and Clergy. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 15 May 1875
Ur. fiustin oo Bishops and Clergf. We ouoteifce following characteristic «b*er ntkns of Mr. Enskin from the January number of bhi ' Fore Clangers™ : — ' I was asked by one of my Oxford pupils the other day why I had never said any serious srord of what might seem bast for clergymen to do in time of so great doubt and dxvisjoa. ' I have not, because any man's becoming a clergyman in these days must imply one of two tilings— either that he has something to do and say for men which he honestly believes himself impelled to doandsayby the Holy Ghost— and in that case he is likely to ttx tos way without being shown it — orelseheismeof tiie group of sonauled Christians, who, except with the outward ear, ' have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost,' and are practically lying, both to men and to God —persons to whom, whether tiiey be i ooiieh or wicked in their ignorance, no bonest way can possibly be shown. 'The particular lands of folly also which lead youths to become cler...
