THE CAUSE OF INFANTICIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 26 January 1867

THE CAUSE OF INFANTICIDE. l It is not, we fvar, of much use to discuss seduction, or indeed any of the more impor tant sexual questions, in the columns of a political newspaper. The Lancet is allowed by tacit consent to say, and, indeed, to engrave \ pretty much what it chooses or thinks useful, j but an etiquette stronger than laws binds all I other journals to the use of a phraseology j upon all such subjects too limited for useful ; discussion. Without a certain truthfulness of ? speech no good will ever be done in the i matter, and truthfulness involves a disregard ; of the conventional prudishness of the country, I prudishness of very doubtful utility, but whether good or bad, incurable, which, except when individual injustice has been done, journalists have not the nerve to disregard. Thejr speak out, to their honor be it said, in cases like that of Mr. Toomer, but when not thus moved they are apt to invest all such discussions with a halo of mealy-niouthedness, which has, on ...

FALLACIES! [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 26 January 1867

FALLACIES ! Do you ebudder, gentle reader, at that ! ominous word? Do you disdain even to ! skim over — as the phrase is — a column of j large print devoted tc- such an unprofitable subject ?? Or are you curious to learn how the monster that confronts you at every turn, i that lives in the very air you breathe, and j grovels in the very dust you tread upon, can j be dealt with successfully within the limits of a newspaper article ? Put up your fears and repress your curiosity for once. It is not our purpose even to enumerate half the fallacies we recognise every day in the little local world around us, but simply to expose some ] that have lately come to the surface in the i discussion of the vexed question of tapping the j Murray ! Railway extension is essentially j ttie question of the day, and it is well that it is , so. But the very fact that action is being j and will be taken to extend our railways, constitutes a reason why the extensions that are proposed should be very caref...

THE PEOPLE'S INSTITUTE. COMMUNICATED. [Newspaper Article] — Southern Argus — 26 January 1867

THE PEOPLE'S INSTITUTE. I COMMUNICATED. I To overestimate the real value of institutions having for their object the communication of literary and scientific subjects and instruction to the people is almost impossible, more especially if it shall be found that they consti tute, as we believe (o be the case, links of union betwe2n those wlio look down from the loftier heights of science and those who are tbe humblest cultivators of it; and that by such institutions men of gifted intellects, matured by all that the highest schools and universities can impart to natural genius and talents, are taught that they ai-e the stewards of their mental acquirements for the benefit of the less cultivated classes as well as for the promotion and advancement of science and of individual fame. That such happily is almost everywhere the case at home we may ascertain at a glance from the columns of any newspaper ; and if we would turn cur attention to the great me;ro pclis of England we encounter on ...
