IRISH LAY COLLEGES. [From the Morning Post, May 15.] [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 10 October 1845

HUSH LAY COLLEGES. [From thc Morning Pout, Mny 15.] THE Irish conciliation policy of tho Govern- ment does not thrive. The accounts rc. ceived from Ireland yesterday indicate that the plan of lay cnllogCB, without religion, is even less likely to conciliate tho Roman Ca- tholic public than the Maynooth endowment which Bishop Higgins disdains as nothing better than an annual pension of three half- pence n head. The leading- organ of the Romanist Eccle- siastical party in Dublin is evidently very much incensed that Government hos not jet the boldness to deliver up Trinity Col- lege, Dublin, and its endowments to be scrambled for by the Romanists. As it is, the Ili>mnn Catholic youth nf Ireland have just the same opportunities of obtaining education and degrees in arts at tho Dublin University, as Protestants have. They do not indeed attain to the fellowships of Tri- nity College, which are chiefly valuable as putting men upon the direct ri ad lo the very good livings in the Establi...

In tho way of a reply to the opposition, who had complained of se- venteen millions of francs hoing demanded for tho defence of tho capital, whilst the coast was left unprotected, the Minister of the Navy presented, at the opening of the sitting a Bill whereby thirteen millions are to bo expended upon tho improving' of Tou- lon and Port Vendres. A protracted scienti- fic discussion followed between M. Arago, M.

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 10 October 1845

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. BANKINCJ.-Tho non-interference of Sir Robert Peel's tncasure for the belter regula- tion of Irish and Scotch hanking with the small note currency of the two cuuntrics has given universal satisfaction in them, and has diminished thc interest of the public in ihe measure itself to the lowest point. Had Sir Ruben assimilated the Irish to tho English currency, ho would, there cannot bo a doubt, have given a fatal blow to tho in- dustrial prosperity of that unhappy island; railway enterpriso in it would have boen checked ; rents would have cone unpaid, and prices would have fallen. To thc poor Irish peasant gold has never been known ; to have forced it on him would have disturbed all bis notions of a circulating medium. Tho branches of thc Irish banks in the smaller towns derived their profits almost entirely from their small noto circulation, which is, in fuct, nearly tho only circulation they have. To substitute gold for small notes would therefore prove dostruclivo t...

Miscellaneous Extracts. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 10 October 1845

^HiörcIInntouö <£rtrnrtö. FOSSIL GUANO IN ENGLAND.-If a rich and cheap source of phosphate of lime and the alkaline phosphate* were open to Eng- land, there can be no question that tho im- port of foreign corn might ba altogether dispensed with for a time. For all these materials, England is at present dependent upon foreign countries, and the high price of guano and foreign bones prevents their general application, and in sufficient quan- tity ¡ every year the trade in these substances must decrease, or their price will rise, as the the demand for them increases. To restore thc disturbed equilibrium or constitution of the soil to fertilise ber fields, England re- quires an enormous supply of animal excre- ments, and it must therefore excite consider- able interest tn know that she possesses beneath her soils beds of fossil guano, strata of animal excrements, and in a stat« which will probably allow of their being employed as a manure, at a very small expense.

ADELAIDE NEW PRESBYTERIAN ACADEMY. WB subjoin tho prospectus of an academy which is about to be established in Adelaide under the auspices of tho Presbyterian con- gregations. The prospectus ha» been very carefully considered, and was 6nally asreed to at a meeting of the two sessions on Wed- nesday last. For the information of the public, we think it may be proper to say a few words in reference to tho constitution of the Presby- terian Session. The Session is a Church CoHrt, whose duties are to manage the spi- ritual affairs of the congregation. It is com- posed of the clergyman, who is. ex officio. moderator, or president, and not less than two lay members, called elders, who are elected by those of the congregation who are in full communion with the church. It may suund strange to English ears that the causo of dissent between the Established Church at home, and those who have left her communion, does not exist here ; that their doctrine, discipline, and church govern- ment, are ...
