ADVERTISING, POLITE AND REPUTABLE. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 28 December 1850
ADVERTISING, POLITE AND REPUTABLE. To present a fuir statement of.our goods, pro- fession, or calling, in a publication which enters private families, and has an extensive circulation remote from our houses of business, must be a great convenience to the public, and can never he viewed as an act of intrusion. People cannot stir abroad every day, nor can they at all times make up their minds'as to their wants and neces- sities, or the best places to get them supplied oheaply and well, lt is assuredly, then, a signal advantage to have the description of several de- pots furnished us nt our oilices and homes, us sug- gestive of what we need, and guiding us to a pro- per place for selection. Moreover, there is beyond its business utility, something gratifying in raid- ing these attestations of tho trading and profes- sional world, without aotually mixing oneself up with either. In a periodical of literary or scientific pretensions, this is doubly agreeable, as it brings the Student into...
TRADES' ARTICLES. No. 1. THE CARPENTER. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 28 December 1850
TRADES' ARTICLES, ; PT ALFRED rVKBf No, 1, THE CARPENTER. InfAOiNB tUo earth, barren rocks and tan- gled forest«, without homestead or Testing' place on its savage surface, and lashed round by ft seemingly interminable im» passable ocean, Sacli was the state of the world before the Carpenter and his fellow tradesmen made it a home of comfort, luxury and beauty. But look at tho mind and thc labour of the man, and sec how, from the day ho was a wood-cuttor, felling with rude stroko the brawny trees, ho hath linked himself in an immortal chain of progress to his fellow-mechanics, till the great whole of their works-their united intellect and toil, through thou- sands of years, have upreared the present grand and comely world. This is mar- vellous poetry; this perfectioning the uncouth, barbarous mass, by subtle tra- dition of improvement, from year to year and century to century, through nearly two myriads of ages up to the present hour. What other mortal achievement i is so full of ge...

THE COLONIAL PRESS. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 28 December 1850
THE COLONIAL PRESS. EDMUND BUKKE, .with his usual senten- tious wisdom, designated tho Newspaper Press tho "Fourth Estate," and the phrase has received the seal of universal adoption. But no analagous expression has ever yet been coined significant of the position and influence of the Press, in a community where the .two hereditary estates never did, and never can, exist ; and where, after all, the governmental and legislativo functions aro virtually, if not ostensibly, vested in the possessors of the elective franchise. "We say these estates never eau exist. For the genius of colonization is essentially democratic. No attempt ever has, or ever will bo made, to transplant to a colony those remains of a dead feudalism which still linger amongst the old institutions of hereditary monarchies. And it would bo interesting to speculate upon the probable duration, even of the ecclesiastical forms of feu- dalism in a Colony like Australia, although these latter forms are referable to a far ...

POST OFFICE ORDERS. To the Editor of The Empire. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 28 December 1850
TOST OFFICE ORDERS. To thc Editor of The Empire. Sm,-1 would bog to make a fow remarks in your columns, on u subject which I think must bo in- teresting to tho mercantile part ot' your renders: Some years since a gentleman ot' the rnuno ot' Watts, a very old oliieor in tho Inland Depart- ment ut' the General Post Oliice, Loudon, under- took upon his own responsibility, with the sanction ot'the proper authorities, to open certain accounts with u few of tho principal Country Post Offices, by which he was enabled to draw orders in the favour of such parties us paid him a commission for so doing, and who prcierred that ns thu safest mode of transmitting money through tho Post Oliice, tho order being available only to tho party for whom it was originally intemled. In the course of time this system so increased from a conviction of tho facility and security afforded by it, that about IO or ll years ago tho Government felt it would be a great boon to tho public for it to take up the matter...

Sm,-Your piper comos opportunely, just ns the Convict putty's last dodye is about to bo trieil. A party in tho present Council, (identified with tho supporters of Conviotism,) are quietly con- spiring against tho cxtonsiou of sud Vage granted to us by tho Act regulating the ullairs of tho Australian Colonies, passed (ith August last. It is their intention to refuse to pass tho necessary Electoral Act, and thus postpone the operation iii' thc Reform Measure, (fur such it is,) lor at least two years, and perhaps prevent tho dreaded ex- tension of franehiso altogether I In order to gain supporters, niid justify them- selves to tho public, they profess lo object to the Act as a short-coming measure, giving us no propor controul over our expenditure, (tho soho dules for instance,) or over our hind regulations. Admitting this to bo partly true, tho Act in ques- tion ...

THE POST OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 28 December 1850
THE POST OFFICE. TT is nothing now to hear complaints of tho Sydney Post Office. A department of tho Publio Servico which everywhere. ought, abovo all others, ta bo conducted with tho greatest order atid regularity, and with tho utmost good faith towards tho public, appears, in tho Australian Metro- polis, to bo managed without any system at nil.

Lamb, Thacker, ltiddoll, Griffiths, and Christie, has been appointed by tho Govornmont.

BRITISH COLONIZATION. No. 1. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 28 December 1850
BRITISH COLONIZATION. No. 1. TT is known to all well informed persons, that Emigration is the question of ques- tions in England, iu our day. No other subject presses with such importunate urgency on the attention of all classes of her population. Governors and governed aro alike interested in it. Colonization is tho favourite topic of discussion in every house in the mother country-in the cot- tage of the peasant, and in the palace of the peer. There is not a family in the United Kingdom but has a son, or a brother, or a friend, pursuing the arduous objects of a Briton's lifo in some remote region of our gigantic colonial possessions. England cannot contain her teeming millions. The spirit of tho Anglo-Norman, no longer puffed with the obsolete am- bition of war and foreign conquest, seeks vent in the far nobler, more exciting, and more satisfactory pursuit, of reclaiming the wilderness, and peacefully laying the broad foundations of future empires; carrying the civilization of his...
FUNERAL OF LOUIS PHILIPPE. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 28 December 1850
FUNERAL OF LOUIS PHILIPPE. The funeral of Louis Phillippe, the ex-King of the French, took place on Monday. The remains of the ex-Monarch were deposited in a vault be- neath a private Roman Catholic Chapel at Wey- bridge, about six miles from Claremont, attached to the residence of a lady named Taylor. This chapel the late King had been in the habit of attending, and at the request of his family the body has been placed in the vault, until, as they hope, they may obtain permission for its removal to France. At nine o'clock in the morning, high mass for the dead was celebrated in a temporary chapel, fitted up in one of the apartments at Clare- mont, in which the coffin containing the remains of the ex-King, had been for some days lying in a sort of semi-state. At ten o'clock, the coffin was removed to a hearse, drawn by eight horses, but which, with the exception of an emblazon- ment of the initials "L. P.," surmounted with a crown, was entirely undecorated. A procession was then for...

THK NEW CONSTITUTION,-THE ELECTIVE FRANCHISE, JÎBsroBS the creation of tho pew Colony of Viotovi», the only important feature in the new Constitution Bill is tho reduction of the electoral qualification, Whatever blunders or attempted iniquities, as inti' mated by our correspondent in another page, may characterise the doings of our local legislators, it will be something-it will bo much, to know that the Commons and Lords of England have freely ack- nowledged our title to an equality with our couutrymen at home. And here is something more than a mere admission of our title. Here is tho burning fact which a host of pigmy recreants, like our Coun cil-nieu, cannot compass with thcirwretched designs. The ten-pound Franchise is ours by Imperial law. What spawn of Botany Bay shall wrench it from our souls ? If tho justice of Parliament had not shone out lipon us, our drivellers would have prated still of our moral decrepitude, and might still have found auditors. Mr. James Martin doubts ...
