MISCELLANY. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 16 July 1846

MISCELLANY. The Sublimity of Legislation. —Mr. Snooks, sad we one day, have you read Ihe Hawking and Peddling luw ? Yes, said Mr. Snooks, and I happen to know the broad foundation on which it standi.. You may suppose lhat it rests upon that " cisternal distinction " between the buyer und seller which tho legislature perceived, according to which it is perfectly right for the Inn er to go to ihu seller to buy or shop nt his option, hut altogether wrong for the seller to approach the buyer, or one whom ho would tempt to buy. <iood heavens ! what would become of us the moment we sanction the principle lhat the sellers are to look up the buyers ?

THE PRESIDENT'S WAR. [Newspaper Article] — Cambridge Chronicle — 23 July 1846

THE PRESIDENT'S WAR. As tbe President is the author of the war with .Mexico, so the wholu management of it is in bis hands. There is reason lo believe, lhat, before it sluill be ended, there will be v fearful account, nol only of expenses, but of mortality by disease nnd by barbarous partisan warfare. The Mexicans have had lessons, which will make them wary of general bailies, and as yet ihey seem to have no | intentions to sue for pence. So Jong os our regular J army shall respect lhe private property and domes- I tic. security of the Mexicans, the latter will feel little I anxiety ; und tho volunteers scattered over the j country will bo regarded as we/come visitors, I while they continue to pay for what necessity i obliges them to purchase.
