THE RIGHTS OF WOMEN. (From the Quarterly Review for December.) [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 4 July 1845
THE RIGHTS OF WOMEN. (From the Quarterrly Review for December.) We hope—nay, we proudly believe—that the honourable freedom of our women may long be made to rest on those only founda- tions which can keep it secure against change —the purity, the harmony, the genial bright- ness of our English homes ; and in order to this good end, we will humbly venture to utter these few short counsels for the propi- tiation of the stern Viraplaca, that deafest of Roman deities. Our hints are of course more addenda to the magnificent catalogue of virtues which Mrs. Ellis inculcates, but the first that we have, to offer is one which derives some base importance from the fact of its being accompanied by a treacherous disclosure. We are betraying the secret weakness of our sex, but the truth must be told, and the truth is no less than this—that man too is vain !—vain even of personal looks ! It is only by a greater command over his feelings, and by superior powers of dissimulation, that he has been a...

SOME ACCOUNT OF THE DUKE OF WELLINGTON. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 4 July 1845
SOME ACCOUNT OF THE DUKE OF WELLINGTON. THE Duke of Wellington generally rises at about eight. Before he gets out of bed, be commonly pulls off his nightcap, and while he is dressing he sometimes whistles a tune, and occasionally damns his valet. The Duke of Wellington uses warm water in shaving, and lays on n greater quantity of lather than ordinary men. While shav- ing he chiefly breathes through his nose, with a view, as is conceived, of keeping the suds out of his mouth : and sometimes he blows out one cheek, sometimes the other, to present a better surface to the razor. When he is dressed ho goes down to break- fast, and while descending the stairs he commonly takes occasion to blow his nose, following it up with three hasty wipes of his handkerchief, which he instantly after- wards deposits in his right-hand coat pocket. The Duke of Wellington's pockets are in the skirts of his cont, and the holes perpendicu- lar. He wears false horizontal flaps, which have given the world un ...
SCHISM IN THE CHURCH OF ROME. GERMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH. Breslau, February 10. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 4 July 1845
SCHISM IN THE CHURCH OF ROME. GERMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH. Breslau, February 10. The honest priest who lately exposed the fraud perpetrated by the Roman Catholic Church in Germany of exhibiting some old coat as the very garment worn by our Savi- our, has been excommunicated. In conse- quence of this a large number of respectable Roman Catholics have united with the priest in forming themselves into a Christian Church, and have adopted and published the following Confession of their Faith and Prin- ciples in the Silesian Gazette :- " 1. We throw off the allegiance to the Bishop of Rome and bis whole establish- ment. " 2. We maintain full liberty of consci- ence, and contemn every compulsion, false- hood, and hypocrisy, " 3. The basis and the contents of the Christian belief are the Bibln. " 4. The free investigation and interpre- tation is not to be restrained by external au- thority. " 5. As the essential contents of our faith we lay down the following symbols :- " ' I believe in God the...
Mis[?] [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 4 July 1845
MISCELLANEA NEW MATERIAL.—A Liverpool furrier, advertising in the Mail, informs those ladies " who wish to have a really-genuine article " that he will be happy to make them muffs, boas, &c, of " THEIR OWN SKINS !" DANGER OP PRUSSIC ACID.—A singular case of the death of a medical practitioner (Mr. Daniel S. Holmes), occurred at Strat- ton, near Cirencester, last week. From the evidence it would appear, that he suffered occasionally from pain in his head, and at such times was in the habit of touching his tongue with the stopper of a bottle of prussic acid, which gave him relief. About six months ago, deceased had been heard to re- mark upon the strength of the dose he had taken, as it made him giddy. Lately he had been in fair health and excellent spirits. On Wednesday, last week, he left his home to attend a ball at some distance, and re- turned in the afternoon of the following day, apparently much delighted with the festivities, though he complained much of fatigue, havin...
POLITICAL RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS. (Concluded from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 4 July 1845
POLITICAL RIGHTS AND OBLI- GATIONS. BY JONATHAN DYMOND. (Concluded from our last.) Many political constitutions have existed in which the governor was held to be abso- lutely the supreme power. The antiquity of such constitutions, or the regular succession of the existing governor, does not make his pretensions to this power just, because the principles on which it is ascertained that the people are supreme, are antecedent to all questions of usage, and superior to them. No injustice, therefore, is done-nothing wrong is done—in diminishing or taking away the power of an absoluto monarch, notwithstanding the regularity of his pre- tensions to it. Yet other principles have been held : and it was said of Louis the Sixteenth, that as he " was the solo maker and executor of the laws," and as this power " had been exercised by him and by his an- cestors for centuries without question or control, it was not in the power of the states to deprive him of any portion of it without &nbs...

[In consequence of the arrival of the English and Sydney news, we had to exclude the following from our last paper.] CHINA. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 8 July 1845
[In consequence of the arrival of the English and Sydney news, we had to exclude the following from our last paper.] CHINA. By the Sitters from Manilla, we have re- ceived the Singapore Free Press of the 8th May, and furnish some interesting extracts below. The lower classes in China manifest still great hostility to foreigners, and the Chinesc authorities do not seem to be strong enough to repress the outrages of the celes- tial mob. It is, however, pleasing to learn that Keying, a high Chinese functionary, has proposed to the Emperor the toleration of the Christinn religion in the empire. CHRISTIANITY IN CHINA. We haye been favoured with the following translation of a memorial from the illustri- &nbsp; ous Viceroy Keying, to the Emperor of Chi- na. The memorialist, who has, it is hoped, &nbsp; paid some attention to the doctrines of the &nbsp; Christian faith, at least so far as they incul- cate virtue, recommends that in China, there should be perfect reli...
