EXPIREE PAUPERS. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 24 August 1860
I EXWBEU FÁUl'EBS. . I Dr. BUTLER seeing the Attomey-Genoral was not in the House proposed to postpone Iris reso- lutions until such time as tho Premier should be restored to health. Tho COLONIAL TREASURER speaking for the government said that as tho question would not embarrass the Ministry as such, and as they were, on the whole, of the same opinion as the House, it would be bettor to go on with the resolutions that night. Mr. ALLISON wished to mention a point which might guide tho Houso in its course. It had been argued tliat to send these expirée paupers home would savour of inhumanity and that they them- selves would not be very ready to accept tho scheme. In answer to this, ho would read a letter which Mr. Patoy of the London Labor Office, Hobart Town, had boen good enough to address to him.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE MER[?]URY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 24 August 1860
TO THE EDITOB OP THE MEB01JRY. Sie,-I shall feel obliged to you if you will allow mo to supply an omission in your report of the discussion on the vote for a Minister at Perth. I stated that the Rev. Mr. Stackhouso, when he accepted tho cure of Longford, consented to re- tain that of Perth also, (though he gave up the salary and allowances,) because he thought that in the ovent of State Aid being abolished, that parish would not be able to support a Minister. Subse- quently, the parishioners having expressed their dissatisfaction at the loss of the morning and even- ing services,which were replaced by a service in the afternoon, be considered it incumbent upon him to resign the cure altogether, thus leaving the par- ishioners at liberty to make arrangements for the appointment of another Minister. I am, Sir, Your obedient Servant, WILLIAM ARCHER. Davey-street, 23rd August, 1860.
MINISTERS IN PARLIAMENT. TO THE EDITOR OF THE MERCURY. [Newspaper Article] — The Mercury — 24 August 1860
MINISTERS IN PARLIAMENT. TO THE EDITOB OP THE MERCUBY. Sir,-When the clause of tho Constitution Act which excludes Ministers of Religion from Parlia mentwas under discussion.a few voices were raised m warning, but thoy were unheeded in the rush of patriotic legislators to settle onco for all the exercise of civil rights in the community. It was foreseen that sooner or later this prohibition would involve Parliament in difficulty, and imposo a task which no Parliament is competent to discharge without turning itself into a High Court of Ecclesiastical Judicature. Now, Sir, waiving all reference to whatever of personal animus there may bo in the question just raised regarding Mr. Crookes, I ask how can Par- liament scltlo the matter ? Is the honorable gen- tleman a Minister '( It is an Ecclesiastical ques- tion which if put to the whole community would elicit discordant answers, which no one is morally competent to deal with but the authorities of the religious body of which he is a m...

PROBABLE RUPTURE BETWEEN ENG- LAND ANP AMERICA. fjKOM TUE HUES.) There ia no' class of her citizens of which America has better reason to he proud than of the officers of har army. Educated, for the most , part, in the delightful and romantic solitude of West Point, shut out from the busy world around them by a gigantic chain of mountains on the one side and the circling course of tho Hudson ">n tho other, and subjected to a discipline which teaches them to command themselves and others, the officers of the American army join to a full share of the national intelligence an amount of modesty and gentleness which we may bo permit- ted to say is not quito so universal among their fellow-countrymen as some other moro brilliant qualities.
