MISS EDGEWORTH. [Newspaper Article] — Bathurst Free Press — 13 October 1849

MISS EDGEWORTH.   (From the Athenotum.)   Among the latest news from Ireland comes the announcement of the death of one rich in honours. Of Maria Edgeworth it may be said—even more emphatically than of   her sister novelist, Miss Burney—that she   lived to become a classic. Her decease in her 83rd or 84th year can hardly be felt as a shock in the world of betters, though it bereaves her home circle of one whose many days were but so many graces—so actively     unimpaired did her powers of giving and   receiving pleasure and instruction remain to a very late period of her existence.         'The story' of Miss Edge worth's, life was some years since told by herself in her raer irioir of her father. She was born in Eng land— the daughter, of Mr. Richard Lovell Edge worth, by the first of that gentleman's four wives— and had reached the age : of...

' ' Such are the main provisions of the new constitution;, and we think they are liberal enough to satisfy the most ardent friends of liberty and the warmest, enthu siasts in colonization. Of course ins this, as in every other scheme, it is ^easy to pick holes. There appear to us to be twp, points open to objection. One is, that a species of government which nhould in a colony precede every other is permitted rattier than prescribed.-r-hinted : at rather than, deli neated, viz., the municipal. Now, this is the -first and archetypal form, of all self government. It is the simplest, the raoBt natural, and the most necessary.
