THE MARQUIS OF WATERFORD. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 4 June 1846

THE MARQUIS OF WATERFORD. The render may perhaps stare to discover such a name at the head of this paper; but truly, we know not why in this our gallery of great men, we should confine ourselves to nny particular class, and debar from their just fame, men who have reached renown by other paths than political. Our present illustrious subject, though by no means unknown hi this country, never reached tho acme or famo which be achieved in Europe. Nor is it to tho army, the bar, or other Inickueyed medium that he is indebted for his celebrity; hid ardent genius spurned indignant at their trammels, and he boldly struck out a new path fur himself. It was as tho first boxer, —steeple -chaser, —in fact, the first " rowdy " of high degree lhat the Marquis wished to become distinguished; to compass this he bent all the energies of his mind and body, and he has succeeded. Among the scions of our own ** upper ten,** tho oris of wr.hching off door-knocker.., breaking lamps, smashing toll-bar;., ...

The proceedings of some of them have been reported in religious and in secular papers at considerable length, and tho objects of all are praiseworthy. Among ihcin tlie American Protestant Society, which for the first time held its anniversary meeting in Boston, drew a good deal of public attention. The assembly wns addressed by Mr. Ixwney, a native of Paris, and n convert from the Catholic priesthood, hy the study of the Bible, uninfluenced by ony exleruul appliances.

PRISON DISCIPLINE SOCIETY. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 4 June 1846

PRISON DISCIPLINE SOCIETY. This society has existed for twenty-one years, nnd annual reports of the manner in which its objects havo been pursued, have been presented to its members by the Board nf Directors through its Secretary, Rev. Louis Dwight, who has served in this office from the beginning. To his agency in establishing the society, if the plan did not originate with him, is to be ascribed the success of the undertaking. We well recoil—l his persevering efforts in the cause. Some persons may think that n society so limited in its objects, as thut of the Prison Discipline Society, if ihe name indicates all those objects, may have become in twenty-one years, a worn out institution. This is reason enough for the resolution adopted by the society al the last meeting, for the appointment of a committee M lo review the former reports, and the course of the society, and to consider whether the same can in any wuy be varied or amended so lhat the usefulness of tbe society may he ext...
