LAUNCESTON ADVERTISER. MONDAY, MARCH 15, 1830. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Advertiser — 15 March 1830

LAUNCESTON ADVERTISER. MONDAY, MARCH 15, 1830. Perhafs there is do subject more talked about or lets understood than Education. — the good it produces is lauded by every oue, but its attendant evils are seldom scrutinized and still less frequently defined. The fact i«» people are generally led away by names, and ae it is much easier to sail with a cur rent than to row against it, if once an opinion becomes popular, the judgment goes to sleep and credulous imagination awakens in its stead ! A Millar's mare is not more guideable with packthread than men are inflammable by specious demagogues. Let but an O'Connell or a Hunt, catch a moment of public exci tation and with ranting vehemence stand forward as a champion,— let him once but acquire the good opinion of Billings gate Radicals and tap-room Senators— let him but once. get his name chalked on dead walls with the subjunctive compli ment of '* Liberty for ever,' ** Civil and Religious Freedom,' &c., &c., and he may s...
