ULLATHOOINE, V. G. WE inserted the Rev. Mr. Ullathorrie's Prelimi nary Instruction in a former number, and we intimated our intention at the time to make a few remarks on the Pamphlet, of which it forms a part, at a more convenient season. The Pamphlet commences xnith a singularly happy idea. " Ceremonies," says Mr. Ullathorne, " are the religion of the body," meaning, of course, the Roman Catholic body. VWe shall be told, indeed, that this is not Mr. Ullathorne's meaning, and that he simply means that " cere monies are the religion of that part of the com pound nature of man called the body." If so, it is the first time we ever. heard of the body's having a religion at all. " God is a Spirit," says Sa greater than Mr. Ullathorne, " and they who worship him must worship him in spirit and ...

Domestic Intelligence. [CONTINUED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 21 April 1836

motmtestic Iunteligensc. .: (CONTINUED.] WE are sorry to hear, from a sou0rce on which' we can rely, that the wheat which the Governor so liberally and humanely ordered to be distributed, on loan, to the small settlers on the banks of the Hawkesbury, has been applied in a way very different from what it was intended by His Excellency. A goodly portion, we have reasou to believe, has ac tually been returned to Sydney for sale, by the publi cans and sly-grog sellers, who received it in exchange for their precious commodities. In one public-house, we have been informed, no less than four bushels of wheat had been received in this way within a few hours after it was first distributed. The Magistrates of Windsor ought, we think, to make some enquiry into the truth or falsehood of these statements, if cor rect; although there may, perhaps, be no means of punishing the sellers, the publicans who received it ought, at all events, to be deprived of their licenses. tvir. Kentish has addressed...

Religious Intelligence. STATE OF RELIGION IN PENNSYLVANIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 21 April 1836

-* ee6444- STATE OF RELIGION IN PENNSYLVANIA. [FROM REED AND MATHESON'S VISIT TO THE AMERICAN CIIURCHES.]. : IN looking at the religious statistics of Pennsylvania, it is to be considered, that, ag no law ever existed in that State allowing or enjoining the different denomi,. nations to tax themselves for the support of their own system of religion, similar to what once existed in the New England States, the experiment of supporting. religion without an establishment has, therefore, been more fairly made. It has also been tried in circum, stances, which throw the greatest obstacles in the, way of such a plan; viz. in newly-settled districts, and among a thinly-scattered population; and in towns which have rapidly increased in the number of their inhabitants. In the former case, our own country presents no point of resemblance; in the latter case, it does: and, therefore, we are better able to make a comparison. I will do this, by giving some particulars respecting Pittsburgh, situat...
