FEMININE SNOBS. (LIBERAL REVIEW.) [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 17 July 1875

FEMININE SLU3S. (LWnEIAL, REJVIEW.)? It .would seem that -there have been class distinctions ,and that. there ever must be, but there is no valid reason wh1y a nuinmber of ?urely artificial barriers should be raised between the different .sections of -a community. The creation of these artificial barriers has, in England, done an immense amount of harm, inasmuch as it has excited a great deal of. ill-feeling, pro. vented people from drawing together who would be benefited by communion with" each' other,,' and rendered the condition of society absurdly. anoma lous.: Nowadays, society does, not consist merely, of three classes, but a score or "two, the members of which heartly hate and mistrust each other. Indeed; it is not going too far to say that'society is divided into an im mense number of contemptible cliques; the result being that when a hundred people are drawn promiscuously ;to gether the majority are so impressed with a sense of their 'importance and exalted' 'condition. tha...

TnE public mind has been long exercised by recent controversies and learned disputations respecting the future destiny of mankind; and there has not been wanting a class of non. descripts and ch~rlata4is to take unfair adviintage ofda iener'al crbdulity for the express purpose of operating upon the imaginations and fears of certain unin formed sections of the community. The latest phase of this demoniacal' and dangerous principle has been exhibited to the Christian world through the medium of a work in which the author attempts torestrain eyil in; society: by describing the tortures of . hell in ordinary language, but with such dis torted illustrations as are only calcu lated to excite the supreme contempt of intelligent adults, however they may disturb the equanimity of uneducated persons.

INAUGURAL ADDRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Mercury — 17 July 1875

INAUGURAL ADDRESS. The President of the Collingwood De bating Society, the Rev. T. F. Bird. de livered his inaugural address on Monday, the 12th1 inst., in the Lecture Hall, Oxford street, before a large audience. Mr. Bird, on rising, said that it was fitting that he should give some account of how he came there, and as there could not well be a chairman to introduce a president, he would do it himself. It is a feature of human beings to require a phenomenon to give some account of itself. The President said he had to announce himself as a new creation having the honour to a dress its creatures. (Cheers). His bursting upon the astonished vision of the community was in fact a resurrection. The Improve ment Societies had boon hurried out of the way without the burial of a dog, no one had sung a hymn over them, or read a service, for their time was up and they had gonb to ashes. He was not going to refer to the Phcenix (though he was a follow bird), because, though the figure is no dou...
