(From Saunders, Ottley, and Co's Oriental Budget.) Mr.Thomas Crop, better known as 'Tom Crop,' for many years the driver of the Lyon's Coach, is about to appear in literature, as the author of the 'Autobiography of a Stage Coach Man.' Having been a 'fund of anec-   dote' when seated on his box, and patronised by the NorfoIk gentlemen whom he amused by his racy conversation, he will no doubt have a good deal to say that is amusing, both about   himself and some of the leading characters   of the district.   A society has been formed in London to organise a place not only for the reading of the Scriptures aloud in the open air through-   out the metropolis and suburbs, but for sell-   ing Bibles and Testaments, and small por-     tions of Scripture, at cost price. The society   has the support of Lord Congleton, who acts   as treasurer ; Benjamin Scott, Esq...

CONSIDERATIONS ON THE HUMAN MIND, BY DR. GRATTEN. [Newspaper Article] — The Newcastle Chronicle and Hunter River District News — 18 May 1861

CONSIDERATIONS ON THE HUMAN MIND, BY DR. GRATTEN. (From the Oriental Budget of March tail.) This is really a painful book to read. Not from any fear that the blasphemous rubbish - which it contains can do any harm ; it is so ' silly, that, happily, that is impossible ; but from a feeling of pity for the poor distracted author, which the reader must needs enter tain. He tells us he is a very ' nged indivi dual,' and thaf'lifi {has lost a beloved and only son. Evidently he is not mentally in a fit state to write n. book, and criticism is disarmed ; we feel he is not fair game, and hesitate to expose the absurdities of the vo lume. Yet, tot the sake of the truth, we must point out some of the monstrosities which have doagulated in this unfortunate brain ; and first, we must inform the reader that no sect or body of men need feel itself, aggrieved by our strictures. Ih'. Grattan stands alone. ' Sfy opinion,' says he, ' ns far as I myself understand them, arc not in accordance with any s...

MUNICIPAL BY-LAWS AND CORPORATE ENCROACHMENTS.   IT is a matter of singular interest to watch how sometimes the natural 'order of things become reversed, and how the very means commonly employed by us for our protection, are dexte- rously turned against us, as if the case if in- situations adopted by us for one purpose being so frequently perverted to mother. A striking example of this kind is afforded by the circum- stances which just now surround us, in relation to municipal affairs. Here we have had one corporate body threatening and denouncing the other, on account of encroachment on the public thoroughfares and on a charge of a pil- fering of the public rights ; one body corporate professing to be the champion and protector of public rights, and the guardians of public inte- rests. Between the ecclesiastical and the lay corporation a feud exists, and the corporation sole meekly defies the corporation aggregate. An amount of amusing by-play has been going on in the ...
