The elections. In dealing with one of the candidates for the representation of North Bourke we stated that we had other faults to find with him than those we had alluded to tint gentleman was or Smith mid we proceed to state of what one of those faults consists. Whilst discussing the merits of another candidate for legislative honors or William Nicholson the present mayor of Melbourne we endeavoured to do him jul Tice with respect to one of the species of Public service in which we held that he has been not Only brilliantly successful but for which i we hold him entitled to lasting Publio gratitude. Those services consisted of the Intro diction and developed ment of building societies amongst us and the following up of Means of chocking the frightful crime of drunkenness which is still so fatally prevalent on All sides. Our words were if there Linny one thing legitimately calculated to raise ii Mun amongst i Fellows if there to one nobler or better than anon her Iti that which takes the shape of a successful Effort to the character or improve Tho condition of Tho working classes. Even to f Iii in such an attempt is Worth one half the us Cecsie of a minor sort Butin rare Ymir Forward and perfecting Uny Schein which shall achieve this end even in ii slight degree to hold that a Mau rend is u Sei Vico to the com Hitty which is beyond All Price and which shill compare advantageously Nilli any Otilit Effort of any other kind or dictated by any other motive whatever. But if we speak Tims highly of a Man who docs anything to raise the Henra Ter and condition of the working Man and we do so speak and would speak More highly still if we knew How in what terms of censure ought that Man to be spoken of who a Lopes a different Ourse and has done anything Todi Gale the character or deteriorate the condition of that class which from both its numbers mid its position is Best entitled to our kind Liest sympathies f As no Public service can in our Estima Tion at nil rank Willi that of the real Bene Factor of his humbler brother sower id that there can be no greater offence against society than that of one who docs anything to injure or debase him. And this we Chur re against air. Smith. A believe that he has done More Han any Man in this Colony in having lowered the tone and compromised the character of the Labouring cosmes. We allude to the manner in which his principal theatre Lins been conducted since its commencement and we ask whether a gentleman who could tolerate fur less encourage Sucha state of things amongst us has shown himself fit for Public Confidence or deserving of pub Lic honors. Few of our readers who have noticed the encouragement accorded to intelligent recreation of All sorts will charge us with a spirit of puritanism or austerity in matters of this kind. On the contrary we believe that it is a most important Section of g of government hat Public amusements exert so a very important influence in the formation of National character and that in All British communities there is a wan ton disregard of a natural want which however elevated enlightened and intellectual it May appear is in reality in the very last degree ridiculous narrow minded and a philosophical. We believe that the the lire itself May be made and ought to be made u school whence Many valuable lessons my be taught that the stage Lins furnished Many a Sermon to ears that the pulpit never would have reached. And Flint this of All the rational and Intilli gent i Cereal i Ona of the times ought to Bank amongst the highest. But the theatre is powerful for evil As Well As Good mid Little Ita we go with those of the Strait Lii cd school who denounce it is synonymous with everything infamous there a no question that in bad hands it May become it Public nuisance of Tho worst class. And no slight responsibility rests with him who docs thus degrade it and through it degrades its visitant mid Lowers the tone of the entire class who will have amuse ment and who ought to have it of an Eleva Ting rallies thu of a debasing character. We ii peal to those who have not Coil How this establishment has been con ducted whether anything could by possibility have been worse. All the higher departments Havo been diligently discouraged the splendid productions of Sheik Spiziri till Ruurd Knowles Bulwer and n thousand others have been driven from its doors and have Given plane to the shallowest rubbish or Tho most Dis gusting obscenities. A Box audience does not pay Forsooth. Better far to pan Der to the tastes of the pit and gallery the occupants of which obtaining Entrance for a shilling or two May probably Between the act spend thrice the amount in the Public House next door a pot Tion of the same property. It will be easy to say that both theatre and Public House have usually been conducted under other names but lie True Smith spirit has All along pervaded the whole and As we said Lefoi a has led to a debasing influence upon the class frequenting this establish ment which it is impossible accurately to Eli Nate. Respectable people females especially Hare Long eschewed its doors the whole neighbourhood bears the imprint i of its natural effects brothels grog shops and Low boarding houses abound on All sides and As Many outrages Are committed within a Circle of a gun shot As in All the City beside. If the magistrates had done their duty they would Long since have withdrawn the License altogether. The effect of such a course is obvious enough. The performance in London of a single play Jack Sheppard was distinctly proved to have been productive of a copious crop of Young burglars and we therefore leave our readers to form then own opinions of the extent of the evil of such a theatre Here. The liberality with which nil amuse ments Are patronised in Melbourne leaves no excuse for or Smith. Besides which we happen to know that very encouraging results ensued when or Morton King persevered under very great difficulties in restoring something like respect Bihy to what ought to be the most popular of our places of amusement. The fact of a theatre already existing has deterred others from any attempt of a similar kind and therefore or. Smith has to answer for standing Between the people of this Community and a most legitimate and attractive amusement us Well is for having done More than and Man in Vic Toria to degrade the tastes and lower the character of the people upon whom his influence has had any effect. This is we said before we look upon As an offence against society of the deepest Dye and when we have found a Mau so situated honoured and befriended by those who really have done some service to the humbler classes we perceive an inconsistency suggestive of most unpleasant reflections. When a Man like or theatre owning Smith is made Alderman or m.l.c., through the Agency of or build ing society Nicholson or or tee total Leales we begin to suspect insincerity we begin to scent a Humbug and cannot help doubting tint objects Good in the main May possibly be used principally for political purposes and not so Ely from a desire for the amelioration of the condition of the Lover classes. So seriously do to look upon the effects produced through such a Agency and is of time mid Cape so in i Nunnie it und until some Poi lion of the coup try could be pointed out where digging illicit be pursued with profit it was quite premature on the part of Gove lament 11 impose univ tax on what could really he turned nothing else than a inspecting Tom by the proclamation of his exe i Lenny inv
