I did not come from Ge- neva to Scotland only to sec your country, to view your Highland", nor even to converse with your people. No, it was for quite another reason. Three centuries ago, a man came from France to our city nt thc foot of the Alps, on thc border of the lake beman, ami there he reared the standnrd of truth. His name was John Calvin. (Loud applause.) He published there, with a powerful voice, that man is justified only hy faith in the blood of thc Lamb,-that in Christ Jesus no human tradition, no human work, no human suc- cession tivnilctb anything, butn new creatures nad he made of our little Geneva the bulwark of truth.

D'Aubignc's History has been published in most of the languages of Europe, and an American edi- tion lins found a very extensive circulation, of which a pleasing proof was furnished the other day here, in an American whaler, which put into our port, the seamens' li- brary in which included the work in ques- tion. Dr. Chalmers, when introducing D'Aubignd to the General Assemby, said : " I am delighted to think-it makes me feel as if I were nt the most interesting mo- ment of my existence, when I can point to one of those strangers, whom in this great Assembly I need as little to nnme-who is universally known, at least throughout the upper and middle ...

ENGLISH. LORD JOHN RUSSELL'S NINE RESOLUTIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 30 September 1845
ENGLISH. LOUD JOHN RUSSELL'S NINE RESOLUTIONS. STIRRING times produce able men and great measures ; our times produce those resolu- tions of Lord John Russell which the House of Commons have this week been induced to hear, talk about, and vole upon. There was intense competition between tho Whig leader's feat of statesmanship and " the Derby;" but the credit of the Liberal party was at stake, and they did manage " to mako a House, not only on Monday, whon Lord John's speech was unspoken and therefore created some curiosity, but also on the event- ful Wednesday. The contest was a sheer party parade, without purpose, without a chance of vicissitude, and therefore without interest. Not that the-speeches are altogether without some historical value. They have, if any, a modicum of that higher kind of merit; Lord John, and his leading antagonist Sir James Graham, having been especially industrious in the compilation of raw materials for his- tory-doctrines of the day from approved author...

PAPAL GOVERNMENT. [From the London Patriot.'] As an illustration of what we may expect to be the state of society, if the insane policy to which the projects of Feel and Graham point, should be allowed to bear its proper fruits, we translate the following statement from the Paris Sémeur of Inst Wednesday. Be it recollected also, that the Papal Go- vernment has prohibited railroads I " In the midst of the serious affairs, po litical arid religious, by which france is agitated, little nttention has been yielded to thc news from the States of the Church. Yet they are really important, and deserve to be carefully observed; for they show us the priest spirit in its peculiar action. Do you wish to know the veritable character of the Roman system ? Then study the Edicts and Acts of the Pontifical Government. What n surprising and melancholy specta- cle!

BELGIUM. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 3 October 1845
DICLO ru M. t ELECTIONS IN I1ELC;IUM.-BKUSSRLS), June 10.-The Belgian constitution requiring that one-half of the Chamber nf Deputies bo re- newed every three years, the elections for the representatives of the provinces of Bra- ham, Namur, Luxembourg, Antwerp, «nd Western Flanders took place to-day. The struggle was between the Catholic party, supported by tho Government, and the Liberals, opposed to the never-ceasing en- croachments of the priesthood.- On no oc- casion since the revolution of 1830 have the elections excited anything approaching to the interest they have done on this; for months every nerve hus been strained by both p.irties. It wai even feared by some that disorders would take piare in the capital, but up to this time (5 o'clock p.m.), nil has passed off quietly, and with the greatest good humour. For Brussels the Liberals have completely beaten their opponents, and have succeeded in ousting the most powerful mem- ber of the Catholic parly (Count Ferdinand Mecns, ...
