M. THIERS. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 25 March 1847

M. THIERS. In one of the most dirty, noisy and busy sections of Paris, at the bottom of an obscure and filthy passage—the Passaze Montesquieu—stands a gloomy old hotel garni, whose uninviting chambers a stranger might suppose would be likely to , remain long enough vvithout tenants. The man whose curiosity is greater than his regard for his , neck might find his way up the dark and mysterious . staircase until he stands upon the fifih, or, as the French will have it, the fourth floor. There he . will discover a low. narrow, smoke blacked door, . and on opening it he will look into a sort of den sometimes called a chamber, the furniture of which consisted not many years since of a chest of drawers, a mean walnut bedstead, two chairs, a little black, rickety table, &c, and a set of bed- . ding that boasted of its antiquity as an English no- . bleman does of the antiquity of his familly. A few years ago there might have heen seen seated at that table—with books and papers p...

Prospects of the Temperance Cause. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 25 March 1847

Prospects of the Temperance Cause. Vurious doubts and inquiries have arisen of late concerning tho future prospects of thu temperance reform. It is true of this, as of all other questions which are agituted and discussed by the public, thnt it does not ut all limes present the same side to the view, that it has its changes and phases, and thnt it is neither proper or discreet lo form, from any single ospect, an ultimate judgment. The late decision of the Supreme Court on the constitutionulity of the license law of this State, has animated some of the advocate* of temperance j with new hope aud vigor, and has tilled the minds of others, equally its advocates, with uncertainty | aud apprehension. There seems to be a reasonable foundation for bolh of these opposite slates of mind. That it is constitutional for the States to ! enucl such laws of reform, is un important point Bellied, a victory gained; that an improper uso of this victory may cuuse much detriment lo ensue, is not only pr...

For the Chronicle. Mr. Editors, —Will you inform me whose business it ia to keep the plank sidewalk in repair, on the Main street, near the bridge ? Il is in a very bad condition, nearly gone lo decay, and the thousand pedestrians who paaa along daily, no doubt earnestly wish to see it "in a condition fit for use. If it is tbe business of the city, we shall look for a speedy rhnnge. But if it pertains lo the Bridge Corp'-r.itinn one would think ihnl enough could be spnred from their profits, to keep it in proper repair, without their being reminded of it. The corporators who reside in the place, ride in and out, and therefore do not feel ihe necessity of which we speak ; but they should remember lha! they are vast y outnumbered by Those who foot it.
