THE EMPIRE. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY m, 1851. OUR PUBLIC MEN AND THEIR REWARD. THERE are hundreds of men in this city -men of consequence and respectability who, if they were to hear the name of Richard Windeyer, would ask what line of trade he was in, and when he retired from business ? So utterly lost are our dead, and so lightly regarded are our living. Any sedate observer of things in New South Wales must feel exquisitely the force of the old saying, that, " men's errors are engraved in brass, and their virtues traced in sand," in its application to our public men. Gentlemen notorious for flagrant defections from morality, who emit from their exuberant animalism some pleasant flashes of jocularity, or exhibit some comical phase of vice, are tolerated as " good-hearted" fellows, and courted in the face of their constant folly. Nothing is commoner with us, than the success of »the profligate in private life, except it be 'tho heartless ridicule cast on earnest and disinterested public ...
