Our Dear Friend, Lord Mayor Lawrence (Th...
OUR dear friend , Lord Mayor Lawrence ( the alderman who asked for a guard of honour at Liege our readers will recollect ) , has appeared in a new character—that of a weird wag . In the course of the disgraceful squabble at Guildhall about the late Earl of Derby ' s merits as a statesman , "his lordship " alluded to the members of the Court of Common Council as an " assembly of gentlemen ! "
Our Genial Old Crony Dean Close Is As Vi...
Our genial old crony Dean Close is as vigorous as ever . He has taken the first opportunity of disowning any alliance with Dr . Pusey and his party . Of course the festive Dean is bitterly opposed to Dr . Temple ' s appointment ; but it is satisfactory to know that his enlightened orthodoxy has not permitted him to be tempted into any act of charity , or toleration , however trivial , towards those of his fellow-churchmen who differ from him . >
The Honourable Mrs. Norton Indignantly D...
The Honourable Mrs . Norton indignantly denies the authorship of the article in the Times on Mrs . Stowe ' s libel , which is attributed to her by Mr . Hotten in a collection of articles on the Byron Scandal published by him . We can hardly be surprised at Mrs . Norton showing some warmth , considering the nature
of the article . Besides , she might plead that . she was " hottened ? a process which has made more than one author very warm already .
At One Of The Many Seditious Meetings, W...
At one of the many seditious meetings , which have lately been held in Ireland , great stress was Jaid , by one of the speakers , on the bitter indignity inflicted on the Fenian prisoners by bringing them into contact with murderers and felons . Considering the tolerationnot to say partiality , exhibited by the
, disaffected portion of the Irish nation towards all murderers , we should think that these Fenian prisoners ought to find such companionship very genial .
A Rev, Mr. Burton (A Gentleman Who, In S...
A Rev , Mr . Burton ( a gentleman who , in spite of his name , evidently does not consider himself " small beer" ) said at a recent meeting of the Diocese of Carlisle that he " would not appoint Dr . Temple as his curate if he ( Dr . Temple ) applied for the appointment . " We should think not ! W } iy , the rack
has bee - n abolished for years in England , and th is w would be much worse than the rack . Fancy having to listen every Sunday to Burton ' s after-dinner sermons \
A Rev, Mr. Burton (A Gentleman Who, In S...
We have no great admiration for the Spanish nation , but we question if it is either politic-, or polite , to send such a man as Mr . Layard as ambassador to Madrid . Perhaps , however , in that land of bull-fights the Nineveh Bull will find himself at home . Let us hope that he may . not be tempted to show-his
prowess in the arena . The following appointments are likely to follow—Mr . Whalley , M . P ., to the Court of Rome ; Mr . G . H . Moore , M . P ., to the Embassy at Washington ; and Sir George Bowyer to the Court at Florence .
Professor Risley Has Written To The Pape...
Professor Risley has written to the papers a most pathetic letter , of which the following is an extract : — on " me The like accusation a thunderbolt of ' unlawfull . It has caused taking me hold mental * of a young indescrib child fel - able ; and the manner in which my name has been held agony up before the add fullest public only that never has investi I been committed never gation a meant dreadful desp , but to ite and never the compromise humiliating for a moment the punishment The matter contemp result , but for has lated a invit been crime . e 3 com may not the
lete exoneration and , it onlremains exposure fo . me to tender sincere and heartfelt p thanks to those friends y who so nobly came forward my in my hour of need . " . The Professor is too sensitive . The British public did not doubt his innocence ( we feel certain ) for a single' moment , and when Mr . E . T . Smith spoke to his good character—why , the matter was ended .
The Daily News Appears To Have Fallen In...
The Daily News appears to have fallen into bad hands . Since its descent from the . Olympus of the threepenny journals to the vulgar plains of the penny papers it has gradually sunk lower and lower in credit . It need not have dropped decency and truth when it dropped the twopence . An article has
appeared in its columns exalting Leigh Hunt . at the expense of Thomas Hood—we mean the great Thomas Hood . Both are honoured names in literature , and it is a poor compliment to Leigh Hunt to attempt to praise him by denying the fame of his far greater contemporary . Few poets are justly so loved
and honoured as Hood . His life was as noble a legacy as any author could ever wish to bequeath . He did not leave behind him wealth bought at the cost of independences—of decency—of honour ; but he left to his children and to all writers a richer legacy far , in the example of a spotless life of heroic devotion to duty and self-denial , which can never be wasted .
Archdeacon Freeman (Whoever He May Be) H...
Archdeacon Freeman ( whoever he may be ) hates newspapers and magazines . Newspapers tell him things that he does not want to know . We can quite believe that , for newspapers are apt to tell the truth about such matters as the narrowmitidedness and idleness of some of the clergy , which is the
last thing such individuals as Archdeacon Freeman want to . know . A magazine , to this holy man , is " a rubbish hole , in which a large quantity of goods are stored up , but out of which you can ' t find anything that you want . " Goods are not generally stored up in rubbish holes , and if they are goods they are
generally worth preserving . It must be a man ' s own fault if he cannot find what he wants in a magazine , considering that each one has an index . There certainly is a good deal of rubbish in magazines , but if we were to suppress them on that ground , sermons _ mi € Jght be the next form of literature to suffer __ extinction .
The amiable Archdeacon makes another mistake , he declares that St . Paul would have hated newspapers had they been published in his ( the Saint ' s ) day . We think not . May we hint , with all possible respect , that St . Paul was unquestionably a — " man of letters" as the Ephesians and Corinthians of
the first century - - could full , y have - testified J ^ if called upon so to do ? Now , no " man of letters " could hate ( for instance ) the Daily Telegraph . The idea is too absurd .
