Having thrown down-some account books in entering; he distuibed the. old postmaster, who, not exactly wide- awake, jumped out of bed, and the fellow finding he was likely to be dis covered, decamped through a window in an adjoining room which he had opened to secure his retreat. If any information can be given, so as to fairly prosecute the party. to conviction, I will pay a sum of £5, and will also apply to the post-office authorities for a further reward.

RELIGION AND EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 5 April 1851

RELIGION AND EDUCATION. {From. Mac&ay's Western World,) Whilst we bolster up the Church and leave education to take care of itself, they promote education aa a people, and leave religion to its own elevated sway over the individaa). Thus far they come iu aid of christianty — in educating the people, they prepare the public mind for the more ready reception of its lofty inculcations and. sub lime1 truths. But they, go no further. The social duties which man owes to man, the State will enforce. But if the people forget their duties to God and to themsel ves, it is God that must deal with them and not the State. To make religion in any matter of treaties, protocols, and statutes, is to -detract from its high and moral dig nity — to make it a matter of State conven ience.ia to abu3e it. There i3 no principle more freely admit ted, bath, practically and theoretically,' in America, than the right of every man to think for himself on all matters connected with religion. The side fr...

PROJECTED DISMEMBERMENT OP PRUSSIA BY FRANCE AND RUS-SIA. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 5 April 1851

PROJECTED DISMEMBERMENT OF PRUSSIA BY FRANCE AND RUS SIA. (From the, London Weekly News. J Where, is all this to end ? What is the meaning of this new freak of reactionary madness with which the diplomacy of- des potism has just insulted the spirit of free Europe?' Can it be serious in its syco phancy, this Journal, that assumes to re present the sober sense of free and consli= tutional England, when it coolly professes to regard the disemberment of the only free and constitutional state of Germany by the invading armies of Russia and France, as the ' the appropriate guerdon,' we quote its own words, 'of our tivo great conser vative neighbours of St- Petersburg and Paris'?' Here follows the programme of spoliation as extracted, verbatim, from the Times — - 'The. G-overnments of Russia and. France have jointly proposed to the, Gro ?yernment of this country to compel Prussia' .to fulfil her recent engagements wilh.Den mark, and withdraw the. support she; still continues to give the Sc...

LANDLORD AND TENANT'S ACT. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 5 April 1851

LANDLORD AND TENANT'S ACT. It has been truly observed that laws are not made for honest men, but'to bind the villains of society. To this aphorism we may'be^permitted to. add another, namelv, that opportunity makes-rogues, and there can be very little doubt but that which, isftermed 'a good chance' in the disgusting cant of that class of society who acknowledge Merciiry. as their titular divinity, has seduced from the path ol rectitude many an erring child of Adam ; and, the rubicon once ' past, character gonejind self respect destroyed, the .victim of an ' opportunity' has often expiated his offences against the laws of his country, by an ignominious. death. Until edu cation in its more comprehensive sense becomes more generally diffused, and the moral nature of man is more {horoughly developed— until society can bo brought to regard the rising generation as its- own., and to understand that 'for its .vicious or inefficient institutions, and its inadequate provision for the trainin...

.. .? ? ['ApVjERTISBJIK^T.'] I ... ..,..._ LIFE AND DEATH- - rFrom the People's Advocate,, March 22, 1851.)

French chamber . of Deputies against capital punishment. , We scarcely need to mention 'hisname, the world has heard of Lamartine-— of his glorious poetry, of His fascinating prose, and of that magnificent eloquence which on more than one occasion acted like oil upon troubled waters, stilling the turbulence of the people of Paris after the reso lution of February 1848. That such a man should have advocated the cause of the abolition of punish merit'by death seems to us of great and manifold importance, arid although many changes since the -day on which it W3S spoken have occurred in the worla- — although thrones have crumbled awa...

THE PRUSSIAN SYSTEM OF EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 5 April 1851

THE PRUSSIAN SYSTEM OF EDUCATION. (From the Age of Great Cities.) But it has hitherto been too much the manner of despotic governments to make a bad use even of what is in itself good. It is not imnossible that state education, in the ages to come, may be accounted an object of etatemanship in quite as great a degree as stale religion has been in the agea past ; and with this possibility in view, we ven ture to ask whether there bs not pome danger lest .this new means of power over the popular . mind, should become only another instrument of atbitrary rule, after the manner of the old, being used - as a coadjutor o£ the old, in these disjointed times, or where that might not be practica ble, being raised into its place ? If national religions, in the hands of bad meD, have become so often little better than so many main-springs of state policy, and engines of oppression, may not national education be perverted after the same mannar ? But oqr objection to these institutions as they n...

In England public men are the repre sentatives of principles— in some form or -other they embody a clear and definable policy that has a direct and practicable bearing on the tangible interests, moral or ?material, of the nation. Thi3 arises from c/the fact that a public opinion really exists, that is, a public opinion which is substan tially in alliance with matured views on all the great questions of government that affect in any way our civil rights or social necessities. The character of our political; discussions, whether- in the press or in parliament, displays in every direction the practicable bent with which we apply our selves to the whole range of fiscal, judicial, -ecclesiastical, or administrative questions.
