THE Maffra Spectator. THURSDAY MORNING, AUG. 24, 1882 [Newspaper Article] — The Maffra Spectator — 24 August 1882

THE affar $ptdia. THURSDAY MORNING, AUG.24, 1882 IT is a remark oft quoted by some, that England cannot afford a: little war, and there is also another section of the British community, 'of, whom John Bright is the leader, who preach the doctrine'of "peace at any price." History, however, incontestably shows that if the statesmen who for'the last ontary'have held the helm of State, ed piloted the country through its moy difficulties, who have caused her to be respected and to hold a premier positioa among the nations of the erth, had listened to these, doctrines of "peace, when there is no peace," the proud prestige which the country now bears would never have been sustained. It is dificult for us, who live o many thousand miles away from the chief seat of Government, and who, for many weeks, only receive the con densed news brought to us' by tele graphic wires, to form an accurate con ception of the vexed question which has driven the British Government into the high handed proceed...

Perhaps it is an actual fact that women .who pray, look for himi more regularly than otheif of a less spiritual turn of miind; When 'the good woman kneels at the 'bedsido' to ofler her devotions, 'it: is the most natural thing in the world for her to explore that historic territory,, and satisfy herself that no concealed burglar is listening.. It is also a well authenti cated fact that a pious woman in the suburbs of London did discover the legs of a bold had burglar sticking out just as she began her petition. She did not shriek, but went on with a prayer for that particular sinner that would have melted the heart of. a Newgate thief. I. wish it might be added that he was converted on the spot, came. out, and w'a pardoied,'and afterwards nimarried the petitioner. :'But truth e!nphels 'me to add that the good wioiman was inter= rupted in the'most isolem...
