THE PRINCIPLES OF THE REPEAL ASSOCIATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 21 October 1845

THE PRINCIPLES OF THE REPEAL ASSOCIATION. Ireland, a large and fertile island, owned by eight millions and a-half of a virtuous, bruvc, und intelligent race, has the natural capabilities of a rich and strong- nation, lt is an impoverished province, because its people have spent ages in religious and poli- tical quarrels, instead of using their powers to educate, enrich, and ennoble themselves. The Repeal Association, disclaiming physical force, is formed to Repeal the Union, and thus change this abject province into an il- lustrious nation, by moral and legal means alone. To detail these means is to state tho Repeal Principles. Our first principio is, To preserve and in- crease the virtue of tho people. Tho man who is drunken, quarrelsome, idle, or selfish, ruay shout for Repeal, but he brings dis- grace on our causo, and is not worthy to bo a free citizen of an Irish nation. Tho mur- derer, thc intimidator, and the Ribbonman are foes to Ireland. It should bo tho boast of a Repealer...

THE LATE CALAMITOUS FIRE AT QUEBEC. [Extract of a Private Letter.] [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 21 October 1845

THE LATE CALAMITOUS FIRE AT QUEBEC. I [Extract of a Private Letter.] O» the 28tli of Muy I was riding with a brother officer, It was a scorching hot sunny day, .with a high wind, hurling along clouds of dust. At eleven in the forenoon we were entering thc town, when we heard the church bell ringing the well-known alarm of " fire." Vc rode to the spot whence the smoke proceeded, and found it arose from a smnll tannery, round which was a crowd of people, using ill-directed efforts to extin- guish thc flumes. It was on the borders of the district named St. Itocquc, where all the buildings are of wood, and the popula- tion of which is very dense, consisting principally of helpless and unergctic French Canadians. The house adjoining thc tan- nery soon took tire ; thc next-the next the wind still driving on thc flames. Thc thing became serious ¡ we galloped back to the Artillery barracks, nnd with their fire engines, oflicers, and men went down the hill to the scene of action. liven in th...

THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 21 October 1845

THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. \Vs leam by the late English papers that J the National system of Education in Ireland, which provides for the instruction of child- ren of all denominations without violating the consciences of any, continues to bc as- sailed and misrepresented by one body of the Anglican Clergy, while on thc other hand it meets with the cordial support of such men as thc Archbishop of Dublin nnd the Denn of Newry, and was approved by the late Dr. Arnold, alike famed for piety nnd learning. The system pursued in this colony, while in many respects superior to that of ireland, has met with similar misre- presentation. It was organised by an Episcopalian Governor, and approved by thc Crown. The Diblu not in part, but as a whole, is used, and a catechism composed by n dignitary of tho Church of England lins been admitted into the schools, with an anxious desire to promote harmony and the co-operntion of all. Dut nothing seems to conciliate a party whose sole aim appears not so much...
