THE BELL PAPERS [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 24 February 1851
IT is really not too much to say, that, the Sydney journals seem marked out by Fortune /or the preservation of documents, at pre- sent curious and interesting enough, but for i coming time, altogether invaluable ; and this, because of the broad rich lights. falling from them on the twilight recesses of what may be called the social wall built round itself by the local Australian Government, and the start- ling relief in which they present thc grotesque collection of political curiosities, with which these recesses are filled.. To the historian, i and to the chrysalis of that same grub the hi*torian, we mean the historical novelist, to the politician and to the philosophical obser yerof the nature and the movements of human society, we believe " The Intercepted Corres« poudence," already published by our contem porary, The Press, and the papera we are, ourselves, about to lay before our readers, will be veins of the richest ore. We do confess that we feel proud of our humble share in...
Original Correspondence. THE HERALD ON SCIENCE AND LITERATURE. To the Editor of The Empire. [Newspaper Article] — Empire — 24 February 1851
Original Correspondence. THE HERALD ON SCIENCE AND LITERATURE. To the Editor of The Empire. SIR-In the Herald of Thursday there is an. article on the want of an Astronomical Observatory in New South Wales. The writer, whoever he is, though laudably zealous in behalf of science, manifests supreme indif- ference to the claims of literature.. He is, evidently better acquainted with Herschel than with Lindley Murray, and knows more'. of the solar system than of syntax. Hisr article is as wretched a piece of composition as ever I saw in a newspaper ; and is itself a striking proof-ii proof were wanting-of the necessity of mental culture amongst us. It is by no means adapted-to employ the lan- guage in which the writer concludes the most grotesquely ungrammatical period imaginable --"to redeem us from some of that obloquy which is cast upon us by the philosophers of our mother country, where they think that all we care for is (! !) convicts, mutton, wool, and brandy 1 " Well may they thin...

ENGL'&Ö AND ; THE COLONIES. ;' THE.South Australian Clergy appear to be afc issue with their Bishops upon somo of the points involved in the Episcopal manifesto lately promulgated from this oifcy.
