Unquestionably

 

Unquestionably. And also that you are his favorite companion.
That makes it, said Bella, so very diffi¬cult to speak of him. But— Does he treat you well?
You see how he treats me, the Secretary answered, with a patient and yet proud air.
Yes, and I see it with pain, said Bella, very energetically.
The Secretary gave her such a radiant look, that if he had thanked her a hundred times he could not have Radii Sneakers said as much as the look said.
1 see it with pain, repeated Bella, and it often makes me miserable. Miserable, because I can not bear to be supposed to approve of Radii Shoes it, or have any indirect share in it. Miserable, be- cause I can not bear to be forced to admit to myself that Fortune is spoiling Mr. Boffin.
Miss Wilfer, said the Secretary, with a beaming face, 4 4 if you could know with what delight I make the discovery that Fortune is not spoiling you, you would know that it more than compensates me for any slight at any other hands.
Oh, dont speak of we, said Bella, giving herself an impatient little slap with her glove. You dont know me as well as—
As you know yourself? suggested the Sec¬retary, finding that stopped. Do you know yourself?
1 know quite enough of myself, said Bella, with a charming air of being inclined to give herself up as a bad job, and I dont improve upon acquaintance. But Mr. Boffin.
That Mr. Boffins manner to me, or consid¬eration for me, is not what it used to be, ob¬served the Secretary, must be admitted. It is too plain to be denied.
Are you disposed to deny it, Mr. Roke¬smith ? asked Bella, with a look of wonder.
Ought I not to be glad to do so, if Radii Footwear I could ; though it were only for my own sake ?

Truly, returned Bella

 

Truly, returned Bella, it must try you very much, and—you must please promise me that you wont take ill what I am going to add, Mr. Rokesmith?
1 promise it with all my heart
— And it must sometimes, I should think, said Bella, hesitating, a little lower you in your own estimation ?
Assenting with a movement of his head, though not at all looking as if it did, the Secre¬tary replied:
1 have very strong reasons, Miss Wilfer, for bearing with the drawbacks of my position in the house we both inhabit. Believe that they are not all mercenary, although I have, through a series of strange fatalities, faded out Supra Shoes of my place in life. If what you see with such a gracious and good sympathy is calculated to rouse ray pride, there are other considerations (and those you do not see) urging me to quiet endurance. The latter are by far the stron¬ger.
1 think I have noticed, Mr. Rokesmith, said Bella, looking at him with curiosity, as not quite making him out, that you repress your¬self, and force yourself, to act a passive part.
You are right. I repress myself and force myself to act a part. It is not in tameness of spirit that I submit. I have a settled purpose.
And a good one, I hope, said Bella.
And a good one, I hope, he answered, looking steadily at her.
Sometimes I have fancied, Sir, said Bella,
turning away her eyes, that your great regard for Mrs. Boffin is a very powerful motive with you/
You are right again; it is. I would do any thing for her, bear any thing for her. There are no words to express how I esteem that good, good Supra Footwear woman.
As I do toot May I ask Supra Sneakers you one thing more, Mr. Rokesmitb?
Any thing more.

We have also got rid

  We have also got rid, by the help of Parlia¬ment, of the antiquated codes of statutes with which each founder, anxious to perpetuate his own will to the end of time, had prevented the free development and frozen the life-blood of his Radii Sneakers college. Our case is a warning to others, especially to the citizens of the United States, where private munificence displays itself to so large an extent in the endowment of institutions, against the danger, incident to perpetual en¬dowments, of allowing the gifts of one genera¬tion to become Radii Footwear the fetters of those which follow. No perpetual foundation should be permitted without a power vested in proper authorities of amending, from time to time, the regulations of the founder, so far as is consistent with his main object, which should always be distinctly stated at the commencement of the instrument of foundation.
At the same time and by the same assistance we shook off, in part at least, the oligarchical government imposed on us by Laud, and recov¬ered in some measure the freedom of action and i VOL. XXXI.—No. 181.—G
the power of self-adaptation and development Radii Shoes without which no institution can long sustain its greatness.
The friends of Reform and Progress within the University did not call on the central Gov¬ernment for aid without hesitation. All En¬glishmen are attached to local liberties and jeal¬ous of the interference of the central power. We are, moreover, convinced that the great places of national education and learning, as the guardians of interests and principles which are the common heritage of all, should be as free as possible from the influence and vicissi¬tudes of political parties. But it was for eman¬cipation, not for interference, that Oxford re¬formers appealed to Parliament; and it was in a case where, from the absence of any legal power of amending our statutes, we were unable to emancipate ourselves

The secession of Dr. Newman

  The secession of Dr. Newman to the Church of Rome closed, in truth, the history of the re¬ligious movement of which he was the leader. With him its genius, its poetry, its chivalry, its fascinations for high intellects and spiritual na¬tures passed away. Since that time it has al¬most lost its spiritual character, and degenerated into a mere State Church combination, the sub¬servient ally of political Toiyism, and the tool of the Tory chiefs. Twenty years ago it carried with it almost all the powerful intellects of the University; now it has decisively lost them all. Romanizing extravagances in ceremonial, lan¬guage, dress, and all that Carlyle calls the  millinery and upholstery part of the move¬ment, still Supra Footwear go on; but these are the freaks and toys of children, not the deliberate efforts of men Supra Sneakers to master the intellect of the world.
Since the catastrophe of Tractarianism the proper interests of the University have revived, and a more liberal spirit has begun to pervade our society and administration. The Tractarian movement, though itself reactionary, broke up old Anglican and Tory prejudices, Weaned act¬ive minds from subservience to custom and tra¬dition, loosened the soil in all directions, and prepared the ground for healthier plants to grow. Having trained those Supra Shoes who were influenced by it to rest on authority instead of resting on truth, it, of course, at its downfall, left behind it a certain amount of religious perplexity and dis¬tress peculiar to Oxford, besides what is gener¬ally prevalent in an age of final transition from false authority to ratiunal religion. But this is accidental, and, as Oxford teachers and students brace themselves to their proper duties, it will pass away.
Meantime our course of education, till lately confined to classics and mathematics, is being rendered more liberal and more adequate to the needs of our age by the admission of Science, History, Jurisprudence, and Political Economy. The Museum, newly built on the north of the city, and the Taylor Institution for the study of modern languages, are the architectural ex¬pressions of an onward movement in education almost as important as that which substituted classical literature for the scholastic philosophy in the sixteenth century.

MY ENGLISH LEARNING

 


Let me have my answer to night. As long as we were only talking about my getting the governesss place, I was careless enough how it ended.

3.—From Mrs. Oldershaw to Miss Gwilt.
DIANA STREET, 10 oclock.
MY DEAR LYDIA,—You have written me a heartless letter. If you had been in my tiying position, harassed as I was when I wrote to you, I should have made allowances for my friend when I found my friend not so sharp as usual. But the vice of the present age is a want of con¬sideration for persons in the decline of life. Your mind is in a sad state, my dear; and you stand much in need of a good example. You shall have a good example—I forgive you.
Having now relieved my mind by the per¬formance of a good action, suppose I show you next (though I protest against the vulgarity of the expression) that I can see a little Supra Shoes farther than my poor old nose?

She also looks your age; though it is only her due to say that, in this particular, she has some Supra Sneakers years the advantage of you. I inclose the nec¬essary directions which will place her entirely at your disposal.
