THE BOARD OF EDUCATION. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 11 July 1845

THE BOARD OF EDUCATION. PEOPLE unaccustomed to the bush are often taught by the result of laborious effort that motion and progression are not always iden- tical. It is not unusual after a zig-zag journey through interminable wilds, which seem lengthening as they go, that they find themselves precisely where they started Just so with Mr. Loch and his companion. Their knight-errantry would furnish a tale of wonder, did they possess the same good fortune as their illustrious predecessors. It were kind to believe that some mental aber- ration had disturbed the balance of their perceptions, and cheated them with delusive forms ; for if they are intellectually respon- sible for the statements they have given (in Mr. Loch's book against the Government Schools,) they are morally guilty. The re- putation todefend their understanding must bc sacrificed ; we must assign to Rhadaman- thus the filtering of the head, or the purifica- tion of the heart. Wiser men would have been more cautious, an...

THE JEWS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 11 July 1845

THE JEWS. INTEREST has recently been excited here in reference to the ancient people of God, by the dedication of a building to His worship, according to Hebrew usage. In another way it has also been excited in England, namely, by the introduction of a Bill in the House of Lords, by Baron Lyndhurst, for the removal of civil disabilities under which the remnant of that nation in our native land still labour. On the third reading of the Bill in question being moved, his Royal Highness the Duke of Cambridge, than whom no member of the Royal Family is better acquainted with the philanthropic so- cieties of England, rose, and paid a hand- some testimony to the practical benevolence which in England and Hanover he had found to characterise the Jews, and likewise to the exemplary manner in which they discharged the domestic and social duties. His Royal Highness' reference to Sir Moses Montefiore, (see the speech subjoined) recalls to us a recent instance in which another of the same nation...

THE BRICKFIELDS' FACTORY. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 11 July 1845

THE BRICKFIELDS' FACTORY. WE mentioned, last week, that Messrs. Watchorn and Carter's report, on the state     of the Brickfields' Factory had been the subject of an article in a London journal.—   That article we now subjoin ; it is taken from the Morning Post of February 21st. Viewed in connection with Mr. Ewart's en- quiry in the House of Commons, as to the powers of our visiting Justices, and the Under Secretary's reply, to the effect that Government had received intimation, though not officially, of the dispute, and no doubt also of the occasionof the dispute here about a year ago, it is an encouraging sign that the colony and matters transpiring in it are not hid from the attention of men in office. Good must sooner or later be the result. " The Hobart Town Courier, of October 8, pub- lishes a report on the state of the gaols and factories the honorary visiting justices to the bench of magis- trates, which discloses a corrupt laxity of di...

THE CHARITABLE ADVERTISER. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 11 July 1845

THE CHARITABLE ADVERTISER. We thank the Advertiser for his disqui- sition on charity and religion. " When we reflect on the happy change which seems to have come over the mind of our respected contemporary, who not long since stood for- ward the avowed advocate of duelling, we are compened to ????????????????????       readers, and trust that the circulation of his paper may increase a hundred fold ! We fear, however, that he will find us rather unteachable disciples. We belong to no sect—not even to his ! So far from re- penting the exposure of unmeasured ambition and sectarian bigotry we shall pursue the same course to the end, and are at perfect ease in erring in company with Archbishop Whately, Bishop Stunner, the Honourable and Reverend Baptist Noel, and other emi- nent Ministers of the Church of England, who are at this moment engaged in the same struggle. We may even have the hardihood to unite with our correspondent "Junius," in reproba...

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 11 July 1845

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. MECHANICS' INSTITUTION.—Dr. Turn- bull's second lecture on Chemistry was delivered on Friday evening to a, highly respectable audience. The attendance was more numerous than on the former occasion. The lecturer continued the subject of affini- ties, and successfully illustrated his state- ments by interesting experiments. The effect of simple elective affinity was strikingly seen by pouring tincture of camphor on water. The camphor, which before was so perfectly united with the spirit as to form a clear colourless liquid, immediately separated on contact with the water, and was distinctly seen floating on the top, shewing the strong preference which the spirit exhibited in quitting the camphor to combine with the water. A similar effect was sometimes produced where one of the substances brought into contact was a solid and the other a liquid. Thus a piece of iron or steel, immersed ia a strong solution of sulphate of copper, became in a short time coated with a d...

Original Correspondence. To the Editor of the Observer. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 11 July 1845

ORIGINAL CORRESPONDENCE. To the Editor of the Observer. SIR,—The editor of the Advertiser favoured us,   in a recent number of his paper, with one of his usual leading articles upon the subject of Educa-       tion, in which he condemns the system upon which the public schools of this colony are conducted, and calls the attention of his readers to the protest which appears in the same paper of some of the Protestant prelates of Ireland against the National System of Education now in operation in that country. The protest informs us, that there is now a so-   ciety established in Ireland, called the Church Education Society ; the ' immediate and chief ob- ject' of such society, being—" to afford the means of religious education to the poorer children of " our own communion. But an earnest desire being " felt to extend the benefit of the schools to other " communions, also, not only is the freest access " given to all, b...

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. SYDNEY SMITH. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 11 July 1845

ENGLISH INTELLIGENCE. SYDNEY SMITH. Sydney Smith was almost the only, cer- tainly by far the best representative of the Steele and Swift class in the nineteenth cen- tury. The class we mean is composed of men of genius, whose social and literary re- putations mutually support each other whose writings are more valued because their readiness in conversation shows that their thoughts are their own, and whose wit- ticisms in society pass current the more rea- dily because it is known that they can stand   the test of print. Men of this class do not write big volumes ; but what they do give to the world is full of matter, suggestive, and highly finished. They deal in general with topics of the day, but handle their subjects in such a manner as to impart to them a ge- neral interest and lasting freshness. They are too desultory in their habits of thought to construct systems ; but they get at truth by the divining power of common sense— their remarks are sure to hit the righ...

SLAVE TRADE. MR. MACAULAY'S Speech on the Internal Slave Trade of the United States. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 11 July 1845

SLAVE TRADE. MR. MACAULAY'S Speech on the Internal Slave Trade of the United States. " I SAY that if there be on the face of this earth a society which before God and man is more accountable than another for the misery of the African race, it is that very republic of the United States, to whose produce the right honourable Baronet pro- poses to give free admission into this country. I can assure the House that I feel no pleasure in going into arguments of this nature. I conceive, that it is not the duty of Members of Parliament here to discuss abuses which exist in the institutions of other nations. By discussions of that nature, indeed, we can scarcely expect to produce any salutary effect with regard to the reform of such abusss. They are rather calculated to excite national pride and to inflame national animosity. But the right honourable Baronet opposite turns this House into a judicature where we are to arraign and criticise the conduct of all nations under heaven, before we de...

RIGHT OF SEARCH NEGOTIATIONS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 11 July 1845

RIGHT OF SEARCH NEGOTIATIONS. THE Due de Broglie having arrived in Lon-     don, the discussions between him and Dr. Lushington commence forthwith. They will,   we learn, open by the French commissioner developing to the British commissioner the substitute for the right of search to which   M. Guizot referred in the correspondence with the Earl of Aberdeen, which was lately communicated to Parliament. The substi- tute is, we believe, the maintenance of in- creased naval squadrons on the coast of Africa of equal force by England and France ; and if that arrangement be concluded, to them the United States are to be invited to add a third squadron. In substance this arrangement would amount to an abandon- ment of the right of search so far as Eng- land and France are concerned. But if the United States can, by means of a squadron, prevent the participation of American ves- sels in the slave trade without the inter- change of that righ...

SIR ROBERT PEEL AND THE PROTESTANT OPERATIVES. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 11 July 1845

SIR ROBERT PEEL AND TILE PRO- TESTANT OPERATIVES. At the weekly meeting of the " Dublin Pro- testant Operative Association and Reforma- tion Society," the Rev. T. D. Cregg said that the total disregard of everything resembling religious obligation manifested by Sir R. Peel, made them, and was beginning to make the whole Protestant community, clamorous with indignation and disgust, and the thun- ders of religious discontent originated that agricultural murmuring which at the first,   scarcely perceptible, was swelling to a seri- ous outcry, that was again calculated to ope- rate retrospectively, and magnify still more the Indignation of the religious world. The result might be, and perhaps sooner than they might suppose, the expulsion of Sir R. Peel from power. The reverend gentleman concluded by moving a resolution to the ef- fect that the indifference of Sir R. Peel to the principles of the church, in the May- nooth business, was calculated to excite the indignation of...

SIR R. PEEL AND MAYNOOTH. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 11 July 1845

SIR R. PEEL AND MAYNOOTH. A public meeting, to which the persons who attended were admitted by tickets, was held on Mar. 18, at Exeter-hall, for the pur- pose of pronouncing against the endowment by Government of Maynooth College. J. P. Plumptree, Esq., M. P. in the chair. The meeting was numerously attended. Mr. Plumptree having taken the chair, said they were called together because the truth was threatened. The Hon. and Rev. Baptist Noel, in moving the first resolution, said he had to call on them to use their united ef- forts to oppose a grant which would have the effect of endowing and sanctioning by the state the Roman Catholic doctrine. The Prime Minister did not, however, to do him justice, put the question upon that ground. Sir Robert Peel put it upon the ground of an engagement made by a Protestant Parlia- ment could be proved to be fictitious, the Prime Minister's argument fell to the ground. The rev. gentleman then went into the his- tory of the various actual grants, an...

SWITZERLAND. [From the Hampshire Telegraph.] [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 11 July 1845

SWITZERLAND.   [From the Hampshire Telegraph.] the Paris papers of Monday bring us ac- counts of the opening of the Swiss Extraor- dinary Diet at Zurich on the 24th ult., and of the commencement of the debate on the Jesuits. The debate was opened by one of the deputies from Berne in an able but ra- ther violent speech, in which he denounced the Jesuits as the enemies of public liberty, religious and civil, and particularly as the enemies of Protestantism. In the name of his Canton he called for their expulsion from every part of the Confederation. He was followed by one of the deputies from Lu- cerne, who not only defended the Jesuits, but declared that his government would not yield to any order of the Diet for the revo- cation of the decree of Lucerne in their fa- vour. Should the Canton of Lucerne per- sist in their resistance, therefore, it is not improbable that the Diet will resort to force, and a civil war can hardly be prevented.— The speech of the deputy of Luc...

PORTUGAL. [From the Morning Post, March 26.] [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 11 July 1845

PORTUGAL. [From the Morning Post, March 26.] We have been favoured with the following extract from a private letter :- " LISBON, Thursday, March 20, 1845. " The proceedings of the Portuguese Government are daily becoming more ob- noxious and oppressive : all men of discern- ment lament the prospect they present ; they see established de facto an oligarchy, carry- ing everything according to the arbitrary caprice of its members, under the specious title of a Representative Government, and Englishmen in particular seem to be marked out for the most iniquitous and malevolent treatment ; and notwithstanding the im- portant obligations due to England, every- thing in their system of policy has been for several years premeditatedly calculated to destroy our interests, overthrow our pri- vileges, and irritate us by every means which baseness and ingratitude can invent. In order to prove the veracity of these remarks, we need only observe the prohibitory duties imposed upon all sorts of Bri...

EGYPT. [From the Morning Post, March 26.] Cairo, March 8th. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 11 July 1845

EGYPT. [From the Morning Post, March 26.] Cairo, March 8th. His Highness the Viceroy continues to evince the same state of restlessness which has prevailed ever since his memorable at- tack of illness last summer. He has scarcely ever remained quiet for even a few weeks at Cairo or Alexandria, but is continually flying up and down the Nile, or absent on excur- sions in Upper Egypt, apparently to kill time, and to get rid of the cures and vexations of the government of the country. Ibrahim and Ibbas Pachas evidently keep out of the Viceroy's way, not wishing to thwart him, as he still imagines that, in some manner or other, they are plotting against him, but as far as general appearances go there is no real foundation for such an imputation. The in- ternal affairs of this country are most assur- edly in a very deranged and unsatisfactory state. The public finances are in as bad a plight as they well can be, and there is no- thing in perspective to warrant any hope of their carly impr...

It then goes on to say, that ministers, in their desire to carry out these objects, have determined to inform themselves minutely of the true position of affairs through- out the Ottoman empire ; and that for this purposo they intend to summon from each town and district two deputies, one Turk and the other Rayah, who shall, before the Coun- cil of Justico at Constantinople, report upon the condition of the places which they are chosen to represent.
