SECRET OF THE LIMITED SUCCESS OF MECHANICS' INSTITUTES, [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 12 April 1864
SECRET OF THE LIMITED SUC CESS OF MECHANICS' INSTI TUTES, As at the commencement of overy new movement, the hopes and intentions of the founders of Mecchanics' Institutions were vast, vague, and somewhat exagger ated. Those founders were men penetrated with the value of knowledge, both as an instrument of practical ends, and as an elevating taste to the human mind. They thought that the occupation of the day in manual or other labour ought not to interfere with a man's gaining some share in the high prerogative of employ ing his intellectual faculties in the ac quisition of truth. They desired to do away with that worst of all barriers between one class of the community and another, the barrier of ignorance and imbecility; and they saw no reason why the population generally should not rush eagerly to the door thus thrown open. The praises of knowledge were everywhere sounded, with heart-felt conviction, and with all the arts of eloquence. A numbot had their minds touched, and answer...
THE QUEEN AND HER TRADESPEOPLE. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 12 April 1864
TEn QUEEN AND HER TRADESPIEOPLE. -I have frequently heard it said in a tone of censure, that our court is a par simonious one-too economical a great deal; but if. it be economical, it is just and punctual in the extreme. It is cer tainly a fact that, as fir as her milliners and dressmakers are concerned, her Ma jesty likes to know the price of articles before commanding them -a practice which her subjects would do well to fol low; and all her tradespeople know full well that their accounts must be rendered every three months, when they are punc tually discharged-another example well worthy of imitation, and one which, if the ladies of our aristocracy would but follow, they would find themselves saving at least fifty per cent. on their former milliners' bills. They would, too, at once rob the employers of one great and general excuse for overworking their assistants, an excuse which they consider all powerful, viz., that their capital is so locked up by the long credit they are oblig...
MISCELLANEOUS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 12 April 1864
-, MISCELLANEOUS. SERaONs.-The preacher-ho is usually young-mounts the pulpit, every hair in every curl, and every motion of hands or eyes, being arranged with a view to effect. Hte then begins, gets through the hymns, Scripture-reading, and prayer, and buckles to for the grand achievement-the sermon. It has a text certainly, and he delivers it with energy ; then bursts into a continuous stream of language. Mere language nothing more; a farrago of similes, epithets, adjectives, quasi-soliloques, and scenery pictures (oh, what daubs they are !) heaped together in unconnected confusion; sen tence after sentence threaded' on, bearing not the slightest relation to each other or to the text. And often, though headed with a test, it is scarcely a religious dis course at all, but a string of sentimental nonsense, into which is dragged, for illus tration or embellishment-eyvery conceivable subject in art, literature;- or science, with which the young man is acquainted. At last Ihe stops, wi...

PUBLIC MEN AND THE PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — The Kiama Independent, and Shoalhaven Advertiser — 12 April 1864
PUBLIC MEN AND TIIE PRSS.-Tho way in which politicians act in espeet to the censorship of the Press is often a very good index to their characters. Sitting as judges in their own cause, the more ex citable and dogmatic are apt to boil over with indignation at any depreciatory com ments that may be made upon their speeches or actiobhs; the calmer and more ghiloso phical aie able to revise their own impres sionss in the light of hostile critieism. " Where there is smoke there must be fire," says; an old proverb, -and when a public man finds that there is a large agreement with hostile criticisms on himself, he will do well instead of gottin; in a rage to re consider whether, after all, the critic may not perhaps be at least partly right. A curious illustration of this has recently oc curred in England, which may be worth alluding to as an instructive examisle to some of our colonial politicians. tMr. W. J. Lindsay, M.P., in writing to the Times, says :-" I always read the Times, and o...
