The proceed ings were remarkably well conducted, and even the most bigotted, or interested opponent of Tee totalism could have found nothing to complain of. ?

I am afraid that if he realizes the end of his present career, he will find that »»*.- appointed reprobation will be a much greater curse than Jesuitism. Yea, Gentlemen, I should not be surprised to see the Examiner, in- his dyiu° agonies, earnestly craving for the benefit of ubsS lutum iroin the lips even of a Jesuit. But foFhis ' admirable specimen of Jesuitism.' I think he must have had ati Aching-head, at the time ho made the discovery, or else he must be guilty of a trick of hypnerisy.

POPULAR AMUSEMENTS SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 12 December 1842

POPULAR AMUSEMENTS SHOULD BB ., ENCOURAGED. It is a well known fact, that there are whole streets in the metropolis, occupied only by thieves, pickpockets, and the most abandoned of females. Streets utterly deserted, unlighted, the houses in them spacious and lofty, once, perhaps, the abode or atl ttiai was respeccaoie ana weauuy, and good, now. dark and dismal purlieus, appro priated as dens for vice and immorality. I have been through them at night, from curiosity — not without danger— and have beheld this extremity of vice, dissipation, and misery. In these streets there is no landlord who can call for his rent, but twopence or threepence a-night is charged for the inhabiting of rooms full of filth, where, promis cuously, are heaped together the abandoned of both sexes, who, after prowling for their prey, re turn to their lairs either moody from disappoint ment, or flushed with gin and success. . And in these streets, a nursery for prostitutes and pick pockets, who live in a stat...
