CEYLON, ITS TRADE AND GOVERNMENT.—[CONCLUDED.] [Newspaper Article] — The Colonist — 28 May 1835

*: ·.CEYLON, ITS TRADE AND 'GOVEIRN MENT.-[CONCLUDED.]. : THE n expenditure, of the Ceylon Government, for ,1832, is stated at 310,3641.; the civil charges amount ing to 195,9211., and the military to 108,7081. :Among the civil charges, however, seem not to be intcluded the charges of the agent in England, for pensions, stores, &c.; amounting to 27,7351. Among the military charges are not included arms, accoutre nments, clothing, 'ammunition, transport of troops, and. ;fthe, half-pay and pensions of the force serving in Ceylon. Instead, therefore, of there being a balance of about 60,0001. in favour of the colony, the account, after.deducting 30.0001. from the revenue for the mo .ney drawn on .England, will be little more than squared; and if the military omissions be added, there will be a large deficiency,-to say nothing of :the share of Ceylon for the naval squadron serving iin India, and its due portion of the charges of the : Colonial Oflice.

NATIONAL EDUCATION. . FROM THE LONDON PATRIOT.] TO THE RIGHT HON. LORD JOHN RUSSELL. LETTER I. MY Lord,--Among the many crude opinions which, ini times like the present, pass current for truth, the notion that liberality of sentiment, when applied to re lhgion, necessarily results in Latitudinarianism, is not one of the least prevalent. The advocates of intoler ance, not content with claiming for this chimera the authority of an axiom, have so long publislihd it with. acclamations at the corner of every street, that it is by no means unreasonable to feel some alarm, lest by the mere force of repetition, the falsehood should in time be deemed worthy of credit, and thus obtain by clamour, arank and station which it could never se cure by the aid of calm and dispassionate argument. A fear lest this groundless assumption should stand in the way of any provision which, in the wisdom of Parliament, might otherwise be made for the Educa-" tion of the People, has induced me to take the libe...
