AMERICAN RELATIONS WITH ENGLAND. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 15 July 1845

AMERICAN RELATIONS WITH ENGLAND. THE Washington correspondent of a Now York paper states that the last steamer from England brought despatches to Mr. Paken- ham, the British Minister, instructing him to demand an explanation of-"apology for" tho report says, " tho extraordinary offonsivo langungo used by our Secretary of State, Mr. Calhoun, in his despatch to Mr' ¿^f«1,P.ILrunn].bui!,8S=?=fer Âl tcP^i.iï."'^ tho world." Upon this statement the New York Tribune remarks:-" Mr. Calhoun saw fit to write, and Mr.Tyler to publish, in an official communication to be shown to a foreign court linked in the strictest bonds of amity with Great Britain, that tho policy of tho latter was systematically hypocritical, hollow, and dictated by a spirit of hostility to tho truo interests of France and of this country. Tn write such a letter was a gross infraction of tho relations subsisting between our Government and that so assailed, but to blazon it to the world without provocation or necessity, ca...

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 15 July 1845

MECHANICS' INSTITUTE. THE interesting and iiopular subject of Ge- ology wns ably taken up on Friday evening, by Dr. Officer. Thc lecturer introduced thc subject by remarking that by Geology, strictly speaking, is meant an inquiry into thc materials of which thc earth is coin posed ; but the science, which now deservedly ranked among thc inductive sciences, takes a far wider range, opening to thc inquiring mind an almost unbounded field of research. If wo take up a piece of common sandstone, it seems at first to present an object of but I little intcrcstj but, on examination it is found j to bc composed of two crystalline substances, and these cemented together by a third well known substance-lime. Inquiry, however, would not end herc, and it would be further found that thc crystals of silex, ono of thc component substances, consist of that well known agent-oxygen, in combination with silicon, and that even thc lime is not a simple substance, being oxygen again united with calcium.

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 15 July 1845

LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. DISTURBANCE.-On Sunday a number of sailors, after having partaken of dinner in town, which was possibly followed by liquor, were walking thc streets, when one of their number applied some opprobious language to a constable on duty. This was followed by an attempt to take the offender into custody, when his companions flew to his assistance, and in the issue thc constabulary to about the number of forty was brought in competition with the body of sailors, who were taken into custody, and yesterday morning fined in various amounts from twenty-five shillings to three pounds. THE SYNAGOGUE.-In our last a para- graph was omitted in which wc sought to do justice to some whose names were not mentioned with that praise which was due to them for the part they performed in the opening service at tho Synagogue. The music wc learn was brought to this colony by Mr. Simeon, whose melodious voice was so much admired in company with thc voice of Messrs. Edward Isaacs, Henry Nath...

ENGLISH EXTRACTS. UNITED STATES. (From thc Allai, JInrch. 29.) FROM New York wo liavo dates to the Cth. The news is important.

THE ENGLISH GENTLEMAN. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 15 July 1845

THE ENGLISlf GENTLEMAN. No nation has been prent or prosperous that did not honour an iilea. Tho power and happiness of ever}' nation have been in pro- portion to tho purity and elevation of tho idea it lias honoured. The idea which Eng- land reveres and cherishes is that of the English gentleman. Tho very outcast of society, when he would gall ono of his betters in worldly station, can invent no reproach that ho conceives moro bitter than " you aro no gentleman." When thc Earl of Dalhousie in tho House of Lords proclaimed Captain O'Brien " n man of as pure integrity as any l'cor in this House," ho recognized, and the Peers of England with him, tho unquestioned honour of tho English gentleman-tho title of moral nobility superior to legal rank, to which Peers and Commoners must alike aspire if they wish to be represented by their coun- trymen. The real gentleman is in tho Eng- land of our «lay what tho knight was in the days of chivalry: thc ascendancy in council, in the field, and i...

CONSISTORIAL COURTS. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 15 July 1845

CONSISTORIAL COURTS. THE Courier has in two successive numbers discussed the question relntivc to Dr. Nixon's powers to exercise discipline over the clergy, and has passed rnthcr a severe censure on thc latter for having protested against thc Bishop suspending Ministers without a trial. Wc do not believe that thc I clergy intended any factious opposition, nor would they or any other person have ques- tioned the necessity of exercising discipline, had it been done in a constitutional man- ner. Into this question, however, wc shall not enter, but rather comment on our con- temporary's defence of consistorial courts, thc establishment of which would affect thc welfare of thc whole community. The tem- perate tone of the Courier, (we except his last publication) in defence of these institu- tions is entitled to praise, but his views arc narrow, and his arguments fallacious. To suppose Dr. Nixon desires the mere show of a pageant, is to offer no com- pliment to his taste. A school boy may...
