MISSIONS AND CIVILIZATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 7 November 1845

MISSIONS AND CIVILIZATION. THE meeting of the London and Wesleyan Missionary Societies, held lately, remind thc colony that there nre interests more im- portant to mankind than those ?which cen- tre in commerce nnd politics. Those who speak of religion ns nn engine of Govern- ment, n contrivance of priestcraft, or n mere vehicle of moral instruction, will regard its diffusion with indifference or dislike. But when we recognise its nuthority, and on ex- amination discover its superiority ns an in- strument of mental and social amelioration that its results extend through time into eternity, we must yield to the conviction that the cause of missions is the cause of mankind. Thu pseudo-philosophers who pretend to soar above the regions of religious truth, and contemn the busy activity of the Christian, theorise, and do nothing be- side. But a closer examination of the rela- tion of cause and effect would convince these sages that extensive efforts to promote the welfare of the human ra...

THE QUEEN'S CHAPLAIN ON DENOMINATIONAL EDUCATION. TUB Report of tho British anti Foreign School Society quotes tho testimony of that truly Christian clergyman of thc Church of England, thc Hon. and Rev. Baptist Noel, one of thc Queen's chaplains, to thc fact, that it is quite practicable to impart an edu- cation which is in the strictest sense religi- ous, without its being sectarian. Thc Report in question announces the continued patronage and support of the so- ciety, whose principle is set forth by Mr. Noel, and carried out in the system in ope- ration in this colony, of lier most gracious Majesty thc Queen, thc head of thc Church of England, and of her august mother the Duchess of Kent. Thc list of Vice Presi- dents docs not include the name of one individual who is not a member of that Church, and some of them are au honour to it.

THE PUBLIC MEETING. Wiiii.n his Excellency is in cjuest of men who may he inclined to sacrifice their cha rnctcv by endorsing nu Appropriation Hill, which will tend to thc furl her confusion of our finances and hasten the bankruptcy of the Colonial Treasury, thc colony must once more come forward to expose to their Sovc reign.'to thc House of Lords'nnd Commons, the systematic oppression nnd spoliation to which they have been subject. New Zea- land has made itself heard, its friends have carried thc war into the heart of Downing street, the ministers have been defeated, and their discomfiture has been proclaimed, not by the terrors of a division, but by the reason and justice of thc nation. True, we have already petitioned, but our wrongs are now more fully developed. Every mind consents, all voices are united, even .he Governor and his officers have frankly confessed that they cannot deny thc justice of our complaints.

THE JESUITS. [From the Times.] [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 7 November 1845

THE JESUITS. [Vrom tile 7ï»ie».] FiiAxcis HouoiA, thc third General of tho order of Jesuits, ia reported to havo said, willi a penetration which might well lay some claim to prophetic power, " Wo slip in liku lambs, wc rule like wolves, wo shall be driven out like dogs, but wo shall wax young again like eagles." Tho world, which has witnessed in former centuries tho subtlety, the arrogance, and tho proscription ol' tho Jesuits, is still incredulous of their recusci tatiou. The storms of tho French revolu- tion were supposed to have swept away tho la-it vestiges of an effete race ; and tho con- stitutional dramas of tho 19th century seemed to leave no part to tho sectaries of Ignatius Loyola. Tile influence of that ex- traordinary man is not, however, so soon to be eradicated from tho world. Tho Jesuits have survived the hatred of Protestant na- tions and the persecutions of Catholic Kings. Thîy have endured tho torture of that search- ing wit of Pascal which they can never hope to a...

To the Kililor of Hu: Observer.

Nixon is Loid Bishop of Tasmania by as valid a title a3 Ur. Manners Sutton is Lord Archbishop nf Can- terbury." The writer is welcome to his con- viction, it is his matter to see that it is well grounded. What the public has to do with, is not what his conviction is-but what is tho true position of Dr. Nixon in this com- munity. The writer bas started the question, but he has not touched upon its merits, nor has lie said a word tending: thereto. No ono denies that Dr. Nixon is a Bishop. That he became so by the oct of his ordina- tion-and that act conferred upon him all the powers and authority, spiritual in their nature, and spiritual in their source, inhe- rent in a Bishop-the powers of of order, and of discipline, and the authority necessary to th...

Mr. EDITOR,-I have perused with much satisfaction tho resolutions of tho Congrega- tional Union of langland and WaleB, which appeared in your paper of this morning. Having1 read tho last of them, tho question arose in my mind what aro the Congrega- tionalists of Tasmania about? How is it that they have so tamely submitted to the combined violation of their avowed principles on thc part of the Government ? Why have they never raised their voice against that system of grants which not only supports their own religious views, as maintained by tho Presbyterians, but which likewise sus- tains tho ecclesiastical system of linnie, which, as ono of the resolutions referred lo, states " fatally corrupts Christianity, and is decidedly hostile to all religious freedom." Why nt tho present time do they not como forward to strengthen the h...
