The aportment is octagonal, like a riding school, perhaps forty feet in diameter. A space of four feel around the border is assigned lo spectators, und a railing separates them from tho worshippers. There is one small gallery for the MM riaiiis, nnd another with a dark lattice for the women. The music was a pitiful noise with a { small drum nnd fife, just euificient to keep the lime or step, whether slow or more lively. The room hat a hard floor, and it is so highly, polished und well waxed as to he slippery. The performers were nineteeti iv number for that day, led hy an ag*'d man, to whom much reverence was...

WHY IS IT? [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 4 March 1847

WHY IS IT? We see by tho papers that, owing to the crowded condition of thu House of Correction in Boston, tbe overseers of that institution have requested that nn appropriation should be made by the city government lo enlarge the building. Thia is v bad commentary upon the morals of oar sister city.— Tlie citizens of Boston have had just reason to he proud of tho reputation which they have hitherto sustained of being pre-eminent in science, morality aud religion. We will venture to say, that there is no city in the Union whose, iuhubitants have greater facilities for acquiring a good education than there. Look at her public schools, those nurseries of learning; what nn incalculable amount of benefit do they bestow upon lh« children and youth. Here the fountain of knowledge is free alike to ull. Every one who chooses can quench his thirst ut this limpid stream. No one can plead poverty ds un excuse for not allowing his children an education, for the son of the.poorest man has un equ...

This is undoubtedly ihe reresult of tbe unpopularity nf ihe bill that has been before Congress, proposing tho adoption nf high rales of post ge, and which, if pnssnd, we are confident will not he cordially acceded to hy the people.— Wbalever may have been the result of ihe present somewhat reduced rates, the experiment has not been of sufficiently long duration, nor the change from the old system sufficiently thorough, lo justify Ihe assertion of the impracticabiliiy ofi cheap system. A fair trial has not been made. This is not only evidenl from ihe fact, that individual enterprise has succeeded in obtaining a handsome profit from the same rntes that are levied by the postoffice department, hut from the success which bus attended tlie reforms proposed hv Rowland Hilt, in the I'nglish post-olfice, nnd adopted by that government.
