ENGLISH EXTRACTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 16 December 1845
ENGLISH EXTRACTS. On Saturday last Mr. Punch obtained, amidst great laughter, from thc Vice Chancellor of England, two injunctions ; one to restrain n Hereford newspaper from publishing without acknowledgment " Mrs. Caudle's Lectures ;" tho other to do as much for a London printscllcr, who liad still more impudently pirated Mr. and Mrs. Candle's faces. Mr. Punch's high merits were warmly acknowledged both by thc Court and the Har, and though his applica- tion provoked much merriment, thc venera- ble gentleman was treated with all the respect due to thc censor of morals and of manners.-Atlas, August 2. KFKHCTS OF VOLUNTARYISM.-After raising .-CüOÜ.OOO, or ¡£700',000 for churches, tho Freo Church people of Scotland deter nined recently to havo a college, and twenty individuals immediately put down their names for .C'lOOO each for tho purpose.

SCOTCH UNIVERSITY TESTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 16 December 1845
SCOTCn UNIVERSITY TESTS. IN a gnnoral point of vio*, tho moat per- nicious effect which has resulted from tho disruption of tho Scottish Church is the at- tempt now making to convert the Univer- sities of Scotland into the mere appendages of her ecclesiastical establishment. Hy law, indeed, Scottish professors at their admission to office may be compelled to profess their adherence to tho Established Church ; but this law, even when acted upon, has never been enforced for the sake of excluding any man because ho neither entertained tho opinions, nor joined in thu worship of the Presbyterian Church. It may be a bud sys- tem that a man should be called upon to profess in words what all the world knows bc dues not in reality believe; but this is no reason for converting a formal and inefficient test into a stern barrier of exclusion. Un- less tho Legislature interpose, such must be thc elfect of thc attempt made to expel 1&lt;'ree Church Professors from the Scottish Univer- sit...

INTRUSION CASE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 19 December 1845
I INTRUSION CASE. I WK call attention to nu action of the Crown against Messrs. Fenton to recover certain lands, of which these gentlemen some time since hare taken forcible possession. Tile circumstances of this extraordinary case arc simply these: Mrs. Jacobina Burns settled her estate of Ellengowan on her son, Mr. D. Burns, in contemplation of his marriage with Miss Fenton. Subsequently she became insolvent, and her assignee, Mr. A. Garrett, applied fur a grant of this land. To this applica- tion a caveat was entered, founded upon the settlement already adverted to. To this thc assignee replied, that the settlement was invalid. The question thus raised being one of difficulty, thc Commissioners submitted it to the decision of tho Judges, who, having confirmed the view taken by thc assignee, the Commissioners recom- mended a grant to be issued to thc latter, which was npproved of by the Lieutenant Governor. Previously to this, however, Mr. Garrett had taken possession of the estat...

CORRESPONDENCE. Thc Editor of this Journal does not ftold himself re- sponsible for the opinions of his Correspondents, To the Editor of the Observer. Sin,-Tlie scattered inhabitants of those devoted districts in which it is proposed to leave life and property to thc mercy of the criminnls of tho empire, can feel, though their isolated position debars them of thc pleasure of publicly expressing, a grateful acknowledgment of thc powerful advocacy of the press, and the generous, but defeated efforts of thc late members of Council, in their behalf, they still regard with intense anxiety, the proceedings of the Legislature ; nu anxiety arising not from thc idle curiosity of the politician, but from a feeling which has deepened into conviction, that on the mensures of the Council depend their moral and social prosperity. It is pleasing to observe that every incident which lins recently transpired nt thc seat of Govern- ment proves a unity of feeling nnd opinion, hitherto without preceden...

Everyone admits tho necessity of such an institution, and wo consider that the human mind is so prone to evil, and that it davelopes this tendency at so earlynn nge.thatit behoves everyone of a right mind to assist in a work which is of so great importance to' every community. Dut in a country like this, whose youth is exposed to such temptation, whore example is so detri- mental to the virtuous principle, and where many parents neglect to give to their offspring that instruction which alono can lead them to virtue, it dovolves upon others to tako tho placo of their natural prot...
