Public Opinion. For the statements and opinions of our Correspondents, we do not hold ourselves responsible. To the Editor of "The Herald." [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 11 May 1867

For ; the statdenents and opinions. of ouir "Corres .::pondents, we do not hold ourselves respon~sible, .::;': To the Editor of." The Herald." ::: SSIR,- SI: beg a place in your columns for a few observations on passming events. I have.re m~arkedwith considerable satisfaction the efforts miade by your journal to bring before its r~eaders, many subjects, which even in a cir cumscribei community like, ours demand se rious attention. Unfortunately, one of its characteristics, is that it is rudimental, and those, fromwhom at tention is demanded, are so isolated, so remote from any common centre, so far asunder, that in despair, each resolves to leave it to others to judge for him, and what concerns all, what in.fact is every man's business, becomes in the end nobody's. Every invitation to take common action on any subject is deferred from indolence, or pooh poohed as impracticable. I was hopefulthat the "Fuss" made about Colonial Steamboat Accomodation would have resulted in some furthe...

THE GURNEYS. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 11 May 1867

THE GURNEYS. Samuel, the one whose history most concerns us, was born at Norwich on the 18th of October, 1786. He was John Gurney's second son, and ninth child. At the age of seven he was put to school under the celebrated Dr. Parr, and at fourteen he was apprenticed to the Cloth workers' Company in London, and placed in the counting-house, in St. Mildred's Court, Poultry, in which his brother-in law, Joseph Fry, as partner in the firm of Frys and Chapman, carried on an exten sive trade as a tea-merchant, with some irregular employment as a banker. ' He took to business and liked it,' according to the report of the niece, whose first re membrances of him were in the St. Mil dred's Court household. ' In the count ing-house as well as in domestic, life, he was extremely amiable and cheerful, and was beloved by the whole establishment. Although not brought up in conformity to tihe costume or speech of the Society of Friends, he showed no propensity to fol low fashions or gaiety of appe...

CURIOUS WILL'S. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 May 1867

. CURIOUS WILL'S. SoME' who in life, would not have given a cup of water to a beggar, by their wills leave enormous sums to charities to secure for them selves a kind of posthumous admiration.' Others allow not their resentments to sleep with them in the grave, but leave behind them wills which excite the bitterest feelings and ani mosities among their surviving relatives. Some wills are remarkable for their conciseness and perspicuity; others for their unprecedented shapes and curious contents. One man pro vides for a college, another for a cat; one gives a legacy to provide bread and herrings for the poor in Lent, and kid gloves to the minister; while others provide for bull-bating, the welfare of maid servants and the promo tion of matrimony.. John Hodge has kept his name out of oblivion by giving twenty shillings a year to a poor man to go about the parish church of Trysall during sermon-time to keep people awake and dogs out of church.

APPOINTMENT OF A NEW GOVERNOR. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 May 1867

APPOIN1TMENT OF A NEW . GOVERNOR. WE have been informed, upon what may be considered good authority, that Sii Wm. Crofton Bart has. been appointed as successor to our present Governor. We have no doubt, from a knowledge of his useful antecedents, that he is the honored official, who introduced a system of penal discipline into Ireland, which after a severe testing has proved a. great success. The leading feature was the employment of criminals, under rigid supervision, in agricultural occupations, on waste lands, affording them not only an opportunity of moral reformation, but fitting them, at the expiration of their sentences to re-enter the hitherto pros cribed circle of humanity : care being taken, that on leaving their place of confinement, they should find immediate employment from parties acquainted with their :history during the term of their sen tence, throughout the whole of which they are treated as fallen men, and punished as such, but ever on the assumption that they wer...

MONOPOLIES. No. I. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 May 1867

MONOPOLIES. o -0 * No.1. 'Monopolies are of various kih d. Some times they are sold by corrupt govern-, ments for the purpose of raising money,, us those granted to Sir Giles Monpesson, .and Sir Francis Mitchell, in the reign of James the First; sometimes they are ac quired, as that so long enjoyed by John Company; and, to compare small things with those of greater magnitude, they are sometimes built up by a party of traders, whenever the necessities, or helplessness of a community renders the operation either safe, or profitable. At no period, nor under any circumstance, have they ever benefitted any person except the monopolists themselves ; they are often unjust; while they are always oppressive.- They, afford ample scope for the display afselfishness, greed and fraud; if the monopoly be a trading one, which is almost always the case, it affords the opportunity,-so rarely neglected-of grinding out of a population its last penny; or, if circumstances favor the op pressed to some e...

THE GURNEYS' Concluded. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 May 1867

THE GURNEYS'. Concluded. It was really to atone for that appa rent infringement of the Bank's mono poly, though ostensibly, according to the Chancellor of the Exchequer of the day, 'to prevent as much as possible fluctuations in the currency, of the nature of those which have, at different times, occasioned hazard to the country,' that the Bank Charter Act of 1844 was passed. Sir Robert Peel entered heartily into the work, thinking that thus he would complete the finnacial reform begun by his Act of 1819, and in some of the wealthiest bank directors he had very eloquent and persuasive guides. Part of the new Charter was unquestionably beneficial, By it the. Bank was sepa rated into two distinct establishments, one solely for issuing bank-notes, the other for transacting ordinary business. The banking department is only a huge joint-stock baiik, and deals with the public just in the same way as 'do, the London and Westminister, or Coutts's or .Child's banks.

JOTTINGS BY AN OLD UMBRELLA. JOT 10. [Newspaper Article] — The Herald — 18 May 1867

JOTTINGS BY AN OLD UMBRELLA. JOT 10. The reader will readily infer that Flora ,Primrose was out of place among a parcel of frumpy old Maids, whose, only delight consisted in scandal, and ill-natured gos sip. ,Not that scaadal, and its inevitable concomitant, falsehood, are confined ex clusively to old maids ; by no means; it would be better for the reputations of some of us if they were. But, whether justly or not, I do not pretend to deter mine, ladies, who are condemned to a life of single blessedness, are said to be more than ordinarily predisposed to that agreeable pastime. Be this as it may, however, there was a most delight ful clique asssembled generally once or twice a week, either at Miss Jenkins's cottage at Clapham Rise, or else at Miss Primrose's house in the New Road- the name is altered now, though, to some thing else; but I can never remember your new fangled names.
