INDIA. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 August 1845
INDIA. FROM India the mail brings as rumours of war. Dost Mahomed and his son Akbar are evidently preparing to take advantage of the dissensions in the Punjaub and re- annex Peshawur to the Dooranee empire, if they can procure free egress through the Khyber Passes. The treaty of Lahore, it may be recollected, bound the British Go- vernment to lend the ruler of the Punjaub military assistance in case of any such attempt ; and if that treaty be still in force (which is most doubtful) we may be again involved in another Anglian war. The pro- bability is, however, that we shall be called in to protect the youthful Maharajah of the Punjaub from the turbulence of his unruly and rebellious sirdars ; and in that event have neither menus nor inclination to pre- serve Peshawur for him. It was for cen- turies a province of Afghanistan ; and the sooner it is re-annexed thereto, the better for all parties in our opinion. The Indian Government threatens an incrense of im- port duties, a mensure s...
THE ESTABLISHED CHURCH IN IRELAND [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 August 1845
THE ESTABLISHED CHURCH IN IRELAND, BY THE REVEREND SYDNEY SMITH. &nbsp; &nbsp; THERE is a story in the Leinster family which passes under the name of " She is not well." A Protestant clergyman, whose church was in the neighbourhood, was a guest at the house of that upright and excellent man the Duke of Leinster. He had been staying there three or four days ; and on Saturday night, as they were all retiring to their rooms, the Duke said, "We shall meet to-morrow at breakfast." " Not so (said our Milesian Protestant ;) your hour, my lord, is a little too late for me : I am very particular in the discharge of my duty, and your breakfast will interfere with my church." The duke was pleased with the very proper excuses of his guest, and they separated for the night—his grace perhaps deeming his palace more safe from all the evils of life for containing in its bosom such an exemplary son of the church. The first person, however, whom the duke saw in the morning upon enteri...
MEETINGS TO OPPOSE THE MAYNOOTH GUANT. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 August 1845
MEETINGS TO OPPOSE THE MAYNOOTH GRANT. &nbsp; The meetings to oppose this grant commenced an Monday, when 2,500 dissenters assembled in the Eaton Institution, Commercial-road, Sir Culling Smith, Bart., in the chair. He opened the proceedings by saying they were not met to " grieve over the betrayal of their cause by friends," such as Lord John Russell, but to protest against &nbsp; the proceedings of their opponents. It was the object of Minsters to carry their measure before the country had time to oppose it. " History was not wanting in instances of a similar nature. They were attempting to re-establish Roman Catholicism in the land from which it had been rooted out, and it might he remembered that another statesman, deemed in his own times great-Lord Bolingbroke —had tried the same experiment in Scotland, and given precisely the same interval of one week for the people to express their opinions with regard to it, or rather to prevent their doing so. He had perishe...
THE ENGLISH UNIVERSITIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 August 1845
THE ENGLISH UNIVERSITIES. NOT having the smallest desire to see the State endowed with and exercising additional power over the Universities, we cannot re- gret the rejection of Mr. Christies' motion for a commission to enquire into the educa- tional systems, though allour sympathies are with his very clever speech. Doubtless their systems are susceptible of improvement, and it is but justice to acknowledge that neither Oxford nor Cambridge (the latter es- pecially) has of late years been stationary. But it is not to their respective courses of tuition that any very serious exception can be urged ; it is against their denial of edu- cation to all but members of the Established Church that the gravest objection lies. This exclusiveness is as injurious to the Church of England as it is unjust to Dissen- ters ; it confirms and strengthens dissent, and weakens the Church. By the admission of dissenters intended for lay pursuits to University privileges and honours, the aspe- rites that ...
AGRICULTURE. ON MANURES. [From the Farmer's Magazine for February.] (Concluded from our last.) [Newspaper Article] — The Observer — 12 August 1845
AGRICULTURE. ON MANURES. [From the Farmer') Magazine for February.] (Concluded from our last.) If the dung be injudiciously treated, the urine discharged by the cattle is squandered, and indeed altogether lost. This is owing to the construction of the barns which gene- rally prevail throughout the provinco, and which cannot be altered without some little outlay of capital. Being formed of wood, they are mostly raised and propped on a foundation, and a door of plank is invariably laid. The whole urine of the cattle, except what is absorbed by the dung, finds its way through the seams ; and either oozes out into the earth, or forms beneath the barn a foe'id and noisome pool of standing: water. The essential elements of vegetable matter with &nbsp; which it is surcharged assume quickly the gaseous forms ; and either mountup through the floor, or escape by the sides of the build- ing. At all events, their fertilising' qualities are turned to no account, and the loss from this si...
